Beyond ‘The Walking Dead': Mining Darker Comics to Find a Hit

17 September 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Contrary to what broadcast television’s fall schedules might suggest, the revamped trend of using comicbooks as source material for TV shows has been hot for a while — even if the brains behind the networks’ programming slates have a hard time remembering that.

“It’s funny — if you talk to the people at the networks, they constantly forget that ‘The Walking Dead’ is based on a comicbook,” David Goyer, exec producer of NBC’s upcoming “Constantine” says of the hit AMC series. “I mean, constantly. ‘The Walking Dead’ is the most successful show on television, bar network, bar anything. That’s a massive statement.”

That’s because the highly rated zombie apocalypse drama, which is an adaptation of scribe Robert Kirkman’s Image Comics series, doesn’t feel like it came from a one-dimensional medium, argues comicbook author and “Batman: The Animated Series” alum Joe Lansdale — at least not in the stereotypical sense. »

Meet the Comicbook Heroes Battling for Control of Fall TV

17 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Every summer tells the same story: superheroes reign supreme at the global box office, with studios churning out sequel after reboot after prequel to capitalize on pop culture’s hottest trend. This year’s undisputed champion is Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which has raked in over $300 million domestically to date.

But while Marvel continues to dominate the big screen, rival publisher DC Comics is poised for a small screen coup. This fall, DC and Warner Bros. Television have three hotly anticipated comicbook properties slated to hit the air: the CW’s “Arrow” spinoff “The Flash”; NBC’s darker “Constantine” and Fox’s Batman prequel series “Gotham,” with CW procedural “iZombie” on deck for midseason. Looking ahead to next season, TNT is also nearing a pilot production order for “Titans,” a one-hour drama that will focus on DC’s younger heroes, while Fox just gave a put pilot production »

Geeky antiques from the past 35 years

10 September 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From action figures and games to books and comics, we take a look at a few geeky antiques from the past decades...

In August, eBay revealed that a near-mint copy of Action Comics issue one - famously, the first time Superman made an appearance in print - had sold for an eye-watering $3.2m. One of only 50 copies said to still exist, the comic’s sale price is reportedly the highest yet - it far outstrips the $2.16m another copy sold for in 2011.

Now, it’s extremely unlikely that any of us are going to find our own copy of Action Comics issue one in our loft or in a box in the back of the cupboard, but given that most geeks usually collect one kind of object or another - whether it be comics, games, toys, posters or other treasured items - there’s still a possibility that one or »

Mike Gold: What Goes Around Inevitably Comes Around

10 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

DC Entertainment Co-Publisher and Editorial Big Kahuna Dan Didio let the cat out of the bag on Facebook last week. In referring to Countdown To Infinite Crisis, he said “Definitely one of the highlights of my time at DC, but it gets me thinking, has it really been almost ten years since then, and maybe its time to do it one better.”

Dan, I’m sorry to say this, but your average seven year old could do it one better; two if you gave him a bigger box of Crayolas.

Look, we haven’t even finished Future’s End, a.k.a. Crisis on Infinite Angst. That means we haven’t even seen its trans-universe gangbang follow-up (pictured above, WordPress willing), Blood Moon. And now you’re “teasing” us with still another Crisis?

No, you are not. I know the difference between a tease and threat. A tease involves taking »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Movies Help Make Lego the World’s Largest Toymaker

4 September 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Licenses to “Star Wars,” “The Simpsons,” DC and Marvel’s superheroes, and its own films like “The Lego Movie” have helped make Lego the world’s largest toy company when it comes to revenue and profits, beating Mattel and Hasbro.

At least that’s for the first six months of the year.

Lego attributed much of this year’s success so far to “The Lego Movie,” which helped boost sales by 11% during the first six months of the year, the company said.

The Lego Movie,” which was produced for $60 million, went on to earn more than $468 million worldwide, and was backed by 17 playsets, minifigures, a videogame, theme park attraction, and slew of branded merchandise. The film is also available on homevideo platforms.

60 Greatest Ever DC Comic Book Covers

4 September 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC Comics

When it comes to comic books, the cover is the first line of defense in creating a captivating issue. As the old saying goes; you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and the comic book cover is your welcome mat into whatever insanity the writer has planned for you. That initial tease of something awesome can lure you in, even tempting you to buy a comic that you’ve never read before. The power of the cover can’t be denied.

DC Comics have been one of the mainstays in the industry for the last eighty years, forming as National Publications in the mid-1930′s and cultivating a media empire that consists of comics, cartoons, movies and video games. They dominated the animation world starting in the 1990′s thanks to the work of Bruce Timm and have continued to find new ways to bring »

Review: Young Justice

2 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

DC Comics has always had a special place in its heart for the teen sidekicks and since the 1960s, there have been numerous books dedicated to their collaborative efforts. Little wonder then, that Cartoon Network would want series based on Teen Titans and Young Justice. While the former reduced them to far younger incarnations, the latter took the Peter David-written comic and expanded its scope in vastly satisfying ways. Young Justice ran a mere two seasons but retains an ardent fan following so it’s nice to see the entire first season out now as a two-disc Blu-ray package.

The show was developed for the cable channel by former DC assistant editor Greg Weisman, who discovered his forte with animation as witnessed by the wild success of his Gargoyles. Here, he’s partnered with Brandon Vietti, no stranger to translating comics to cartoons. Their premise takes the teens – Robin, »

What The O.C.'s Seth Cohen did for geekdom

31 August 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Seth Cohen's character in The O.C. was much more than just a nerd punch-line, Wil argues, he paved the way for comic-book movie success...

We all have touchstones in adolescent life that end up shaping who we become. I’m sure we all share a few of them. Maybe it’s Holden Caulfield. Maybe it’s Kurt Cobain. Maybe it’s The Smiths or Fight Club or Ghost World. All of those had an effect on me, but I’m not ashamed to say that the one who had the biggest effect was Seth Cohen, a character in the early 2000s Fox teen soap opera The O.C.

Seth Cohen was awesome. He was awkward and read Chuck Klosterman and drew superheroes and wore the coolest t-shirts. He brought comic books, twee indie rock and snarky internet knowingness to a show few would associate with geekiness, and blasted all those things into the mainstream. »

Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con 2014 Report

27 August 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jessie Robertson reports on Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con 2014….

So, this weekend I , along with my friend Jesse, packed up and headed to the Windy City for our first big major Con, Wizard World in Chicago. We were there from Friday night to Sunday afternoon, taking in all the sights, sounds, Deadpools and Harley Quinns!

For this article, I wanted to go over 5 things I really liked and 3 things I didn’t care for at the event…

Positives:

1) Organization!

Chicago Comic Con was held at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center, which is an enormous venue with easily accessible parking and great directions throughout the building on where you need to go. The website itself was highly detailed, and you get a guide when you enter the building that shows you every single celebrity, every panel and every vendor that will be involved in the event with times and it was super helpful. »

Does Scoot McNairy Have a Link to Cyborg in 'Batman v Superman'?

24 August 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, new photos from the Detroit set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice showcased actor Scoot McNairy wearing green socks that teased the bottom half of his legs will be replaced with CGI elements, leading many fans to believe that he is actually playing Barry Allen, a.k.a. The Flash. The actor joined the cast back in June, but his exact role remains shrouded in mystery. Screen Rant has a new theory about who Scoot McNairy may be playing, which could tie in to Ray Fisher's character, Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg.

While some theorize that Scoot McNairy may be playing Barry Allen, whose legs are replaced with some sort of mechanical implants, which would alter the character's origin story from the DC comic books, Screen Rant believes the actor is playing either the S.T.A.R. Labs "top mind," The Chief, or Dr. »

Comic Book Review – The Multiversity #1

23 August 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras reviews The Multiversity #1…

Grant Morrison is one of the most polarizing writers in comics. There are those who hail him as genius, and those who believe he is quite insane. Chances are, they’re both right. His work has always created strong opinions and generated passion from comic fans. For me, there’s very little nuance to his work. There’s no such thing as an average Grant Morrison story. Either you dive in head first buying into the insanity he consistently weaves, or you cut bait after an issue or two declaring the whole thing an epic disaster. I don’t know a comic fan who doesn’t really enjoy a Morrison story like the amazing All Star Superman. On the other side, you’ll be hard pressed to find a fan who will sing the praises of Final Crisis.

Multiversity is going to be one of »

Being Batman: The Actors Underneath the Cowl

17 August 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

“What are you?’ That question has been on many a criminal’s mind for numerous decades. Out of absolute fear, these evildoers stare into the face of darkness personified, a creature of the night that is a true symbol of justice. I’m talking of course about Batman, the Dark Knight, a crimefighter who strikes fear into the hearts of those deserve it. He is a highly complex character and throughout his 75-year history, many talented (and some not so talented) actors have brought him to life on the silver screen.

Lewis Wilson Batman (1943) The first film appearance of the Caped Crusader occurred at the height of World War II in 1943, four years after the character’s creation. Lewis Wilson portrayed Batman in a 15-chapter film serial released by Columbia Pictures, in which he and trusty sidekick Robin go head to head with Dr. Daka, a demented Japanese scientist who »

Ben Affleck Talks Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice And Batfleck Backlash

14 August 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ben Affleck was cast as Bruce Wayne in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice almost a year ago, but the divisive fan chatter about his casting has yet to die down (and likely won’t until the film hits theaters in 2016). Affleck talked about landing the role in passing on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last September (saying, “I handle s**t!“), but has remained remarkably tight-lipped about it ever since.

When talking to Entertainment Weekly about his upcoming David Fincher film Gone Girl, the actor opened up a little bit about playing Batman and how he feels about the fan backlash. He unfortunately didn’t give us any information about the film itself, but praised Zack Snyder’s vision and Chris Terrio’s script.

When asked about what it’s like portraying an iconic hero like Batman, Affleck said:

“I’m right in the middle of shooting now. »
