The Background: Jason Wiese writes feature stories for CinemaBlend. His occupation results from years dreaming of a filmmaking career, settling on a "professional film fan" career, studying journalism at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO (where he served as Culture Editor for its student-run print and online publications), and a brief stint of reviewing movies for fun. He would later continue that side-hustle of film criticism on TikTok (@wiesewisdom), where he posts videos on a semi-weekly basis.

What He's Into: Readers may notice a recurring theme of horror and superhero-related content (especially in regards to Batman) in much of Jason's work, but his favorite film of all time is more in line with traditional action/adventure stories: Raiders of the Lost Ark. His favorite TV series is the gritty, grounded crime thriller Breaking Bad and if you catching him reading anything, it is probably a comic book (and, more often than not, one featuring Batman). More important to him than entertainment, however, are his wife and two dogs.

What He's Excited About Right Now: Jason typically tries to keep his excitement and expectations for any upcoming movies as low as possible, but he is certainly looking forward to the second halves of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Beyond the Spider-Verse) and Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning, as well as Tim Burton's long, LONG-awaited follow-up to a very film in his household, Beetlejuice. However, even more than any of those sequels, he is especially looking forward to returning to Matt Reeves' vision of Gotham City in the upcoming follow-up to The Batman.
