No Sweet Science To Be Found in Ron Wilson’s ‘Super Boxers’

23 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Marvel Graphic Novel #8: Super Boxers (1983)

Plot and Pencils by Ron Wilson

Script by John Byrne

Inks by Armando Gil

Colors by Bob Sharen, Steve Oliff, John Tartaglione, Joe D’Esposito & Mark Bright

Published by Marvel Comics

Among some comic reviewers, there’s an understanding that you don’t talk about the cover of the comic that you’re writing about. It’s tied into that old saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” and it would be a bit like critiquing a movie based on the movie poster in the theater lobby. One is completely separate from the other.

All of that said, the best thing about Ron Wilson’s 1983 graphic novel Super Boxers is Bill Sienkiewicz’s awesome cover.

The official title of the publication is Marvel® Graphic Novel No. 8: Super Boxers. Marvel’s then still young graphic novel line had already produced a number »

New image of Mark Hamill’s Trickster from Lego DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom!

13 August 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s certainly a good time for Mark Hamill. Not only is he reprising the role of Luke Skywalker for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Joker for next year’s Batman: The Killing Joke, but he’s also returned to another of his former characters in the DC villain The Trickster.

Having portrayed the villain in the 90s Flash series, Hamill guest starred in an episode of The CW’s The Flash earlier this year, and he’s also voicing the character in the upcoming animated movie Lego DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom!; here’s an official promotional image of the villain…

Supergirl: Brit Morgan cast as the villainous Livewire

13 August 2015 12:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Another baddie has been confirmed for Supergirl’s CBS TV show. Brit Morgan will play Livewire, a journalist-turned-supervillain…

A brief Supergirl update here. Another villain has been added to the ranks – Livewire (real name Leslie), described as “a confident, abrasive and funny shock-jock who works for CatCo Media," the media company where Supergirl (real name Kara) works by day.

At some point in the series, shock-happy journalist Leslie will become a supervillain, when “an accident makes her as dangerous and shocking as her words." Don't worry, we're not getting any ideas.

This will all sound fairly familiar to fans of the Superman animated series from the 1990s, where Livewire – then voiced by Lori Petty – was first introduced. The character was created by Bruce Timm for the animated show, and later co-opted into the main comic book universe in 2006.

In Supergirl, the role will be played by Brit Morgan, best known »

Hollywood Can’t Seem to Crack Marvel’s ‘Fantastic Four’

7 August 2015 5:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For years, the Fantastic Four immodestly bore the title “The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine.” Introduced in 1961, the title ushered in the age of Marvel Comics, inaugurating the creative explosion of writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, which has been compared in musical terms to John Lennon and Paul McCartney during the Beatles’ heyday.

All of that makes the rather tortured history of the franchise onscreen, especially given the current ascent of comicbook blockbusters, all the more perplexing — most recently with Fox’s reboot “Fantastic Four,” which comes eight years after the last live-action “Fantastic Four” effort, a sequel subtitled “Rise of the Silver Surfer.”

Not only has the newest project been bludgeoned by critics, but the director, Josh Trank, responded by implying that the studio, 20th Century Fox, was responsible for its failings. Whatever the underlying truth, for comicbook fans it raises the specter of the bad old days, »

‘Justice League: Gods and Monsters’ Review

1 August 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Benjamin Bratt, Michael C. Hall, Tamara Taylor, Paget Brewster, C. Thomas Howell, Jason Isaacs, Dee Bradley Baker, Eric Bauza, Larry Cedar, Richard Chamberlain, Trevor Devall, Dan Gilvezan, Grey Griffin, Daniel Hagen, Penny Johnson Jerald | Written by Alan Burnett, Bruce Timm | Directed by Sam Liu

Plot:

In an alternate reality, the Justice League is a brutal force that the World fears and distrusts. So when the Jl are framed for a series of murders, no-one is exactly jumping to their defence and it is up to Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman to figure this out for themselves and ultimately save the day.

Verdict:

Now this is more like it.

After efforts like Justice League:War, Son of Batman and Batman vs Robin. Justice League: Gods and Monsters is a real breath of fresh air and a sign that DC Animation can be as good as they used to be, which was a long while ago. »

'Batman v Superman' Introduces Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves

28 July 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though it has been rumored for quite sometime, today we get official confirmation from DC All Access that actress Tao Okamoto is playing Mercy Graves in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The character was originally created for Superman: The Animated series back in 1996. And this is the first time she has been seen on the big screen. Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad has similar origins. Instead of springing forth from a comic book, she was created for the Batman animated series back in 1992.

Tao Okamoto was personally selected by director Zack Snyder for the role after her appearance in The Wolverine. The character can be seen in the second Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer as she leads the dead body of super villain Zod through Lex Corp Industries, a hold over from Man of Steel. Early in the production process, Warner Bros. claimed that »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer breakdown reveals a new character

28 July 2015 5:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A breakdown of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer has confirmed another casting from Zack Snyder's Man of Steel follow-up.

Eagle-eyed viewers might have spotted Tao Okamoto looking sharp as she escorted the body of Zod.

Now the official DC All Access channel has revealed that she will be playing Mercy Graves in the film.

Graves is typically portrayed as Lex Luthor's assistant or bodyguard.

She was first introduced in Superman: The Animated Series before graduating to comics in a similar way to Harley Quinn.

Luthor will be played by Jesse Eisenberg (fresh from upsetting everyone at Comic-Con), with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne and Jeremy Irons.

Okamoto is best-known for playing Chiyo in Hannibal. This will be her second superhero outing after 2013's The Wolverine.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on March 25, 2016. Watch the Comic-Con trailer in »

Tao Okamoto’s Role In Batman V Superman Confirmed

28 July 2015 2:50 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

When Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine) was announced to be joining the cast of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, even though she was said to be playing a character created specially for the movie, many fans (myself included) speculated that she would be playing Mercy Graves, Lex Luthor’s ass kicking chauffeur/bodyguard who first saw the light of day on Superman: The Animated Series. Now, with a break down of that awesome trailer, DC All Access have confirmed (at 2:23) that this is indeed the case, making her the second DC Comics character created specifically for Warner Bros. animated shows to make the jump to the big screen, alongside Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Mercy Graves is a pretty bad ass character, but really her inclusion doesn’t add up to much else than her whaling on people. So, are we going see Okamoto going toe »

Batman V Superman: Tao Okamoto role confirmed

27 July 2015 10:46 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tao Okamoto is playing Mercy Graves in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice...

And so another part of the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice casting jigsaw is in place.

It's been known for some time that Tao Okamoto, previously seen in The Wolverine, was on board the role. In fact, she appears briefly in the most recent trailer for the movie.

Here's the proof...

What wasn't clear is just where she fitted into the ensemble for the film. However, thanks to DC All Access, now we know.

Okamoto is to take on the role of Mercy Graves in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Graves is bodyguard and/or assistant to Lex Luthor, a character introduced in Superman: The Animated Series.

We're guessing her role in the film isn't too big, but we'll find out for sure in March 2016, when Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice arrives in cinemas. »
