I watched the teaser. And though I generally don’t watch them because of their usually really bad quality, the bootleg version of the pilot episode mysteriously showed up in my e-mail box the »

At Vulture, we love comic books. We think that they matter, that they’re fun, and that they deserve our attention and not just our snark (though some of that’s cool, too). But the proliferation of big brooding men in masks, what some call the Frank Miller Effect, has become tiresome; that self-serious Batman v. Superman trailer probably needs to speak with a therapist, it’s so melancholy. And yet, the notion that super heroes have only become mean and dark in recent years, that Superman has traditionally been a nice, smiling savior, is erroneous. Truth is they’ve always been kinda mean.Over at The Atlantic, Charles Moss has penned an excellent essay that vivisects Superman’s morally ambiguous origins. As with Bob Kane’s Batman, who began life as a guy in a mask who threw thugs off of rooftops and hanged people by the neck from his Batplane, »

Suicide Squad is scheduled for release on August 5, 2016.
What we've seen so far
The movie has attracted a lot of attention as images of the Suicide Squad's members in costume began to roll out.
Leto showed off his new muscles, which everyone seemed to be fine with.
What fans have been less keen on is the photo of his tattooed and be-grilled Joker.
Despite suggestions that this was a concept that wouldn't show up in the film itself, shots from the set have dashed these hopes to pieces. »
The Supergirl upfront has garnered strong reactions online, not all of it positive. Here's a response to its critics...
It's fair to say the Supergirl trailer (actually an "upfront" – a précis of the entire pilot designed to sell the show internally and to advertisers) has attracted a lot of praise. It's also attracted a lot of criticism. But how valid are those criticisms? I'll say now that none of us has any idea whether this show will actually be good or not – I think it will, based on what I've seen – but I don't know. What I do know is that some of the things people are saying about it don't seem fair.
Criticism of the trailer's rom-com influences, perceived cheesiness, comparisons to a certain Saturday Night Live sketch, and complaints that its version of Kara Zor-El isn't (we'll come back to this) a "strong female character" are all problematic, »
Whenever a TV season wraps up, many actors try to find a movie they can make within their hiatus. Arrow star Stephen Amell is currently in New York filming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, portraying fan-favorite character Casey Jones just as this season of comes to a close tonight with the Season 3 finale "My Name is Oliver Queen". Producer Marc Guggenheim is hard at work on the spinoff DC's Legends of Tomorrow. But, as we just found out, he is also returning to the comic book world with his brand new creation The Infinite Adventures of Jonas Quantum. The comic book series will kick off its run in September, just as fans get ready for Arrow Season 4.
Legendary Comics is publishing The Adventures of Jonas Quantum, an original sci-fi odyssey from two of the most exciting voices in superhero storytelling: Marc Guggenheim and visionary artist Freddie Williams II (Justice League America, »

Batman has joined the just formed Justice League in order to keep tabs on Superman, a mistrust that is complicated by Superman’s bad (but well meaning) clone, Bizarro, and his creation of the Bizarro League. But, there is an even bigger threat that forces the two Leagues to join forces. Yes, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Cyborg; and their bizarro-universe clones, Batzarro, Bizarra, Greenzarro and Cyzarro, must team-up to stop Darkseid and save the galaxy!
Wherever there is chaos and destruction, Superman’s mixed-up clone, Bizarro, is not far way. He hears the opposite of what is said, says the opposite of what he means and does the opposite of what is right. The Man of Steel »

Next month sees the arrival of Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles, an online webseries based upon Bruce Timm’s upcoming DC Universe Animated Original Movie Justice League: Gods and Monsters, and it seems that Warner Bros. and Machinima are confident that they’ve got a hit on their hands, as a second season has just been given the green light.
Here’s the official announcement (via Bleeding Cool):
“From visionary producer and animator Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series), Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles turns the DC Universe upside-down. In this dark, alternate world, telling the good guys from the bad guys is never easy: Superman is not the son of Jor-El, he’s the son of General Zod; Wonder Woman is not from peaceful Themyscira, but rather the warring nation of Ares; and Batman is more vampire-bat than man…and he’s not Bruce Wayne. »

This June, Machinima and WB Animation will release a radical new project from animation master Bruce Timm, which takes Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman on a much darker path. Apparently Machinima and WB think the first season of Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles will be a hit as a second season has already been greenlit for 2016. Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles serves as a prequel to the direct-to-video feature that will be released on July 28, 2015. The news of a second season should bring a sigh of relief for WB Animation fans that felt burned by the early cancelations of Green Lantern: Tas and Young Justice. Alan Burnett penned the script for Gods and Monsters, which is directed bySam Liu. Timm serves as excecutive producer, alongisde Sam Register.

Machinima's debut at the Digital Content Newfronts was nothing short of "heroic" as they unveiled a programming slate designed to elevate and celebrate a global community of gamer, comic and hero fans. Partnerships with Blue Ribbon Content and DC Entertainment, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Clive Barker, Roberto Orci and Bunim/Murray Productions, along with some of Machinima's leading creator talent, showcase Machinima's commitment to developing content across all genres, formats and platforms. Here's what Machinima CEO Chad Gutstein had to say in a statement.
"Fandom and gaming engenders so much passion and engagement; it's a cultural shift uniquely connecting with the most valuable millennials. It's this deep connection to our audience that has made Machinima the ninth largest video entertainment platform in the United States, and the second most watched programmer on YouTube. With our new slate, we are reminding our fans and our clients of one very important fact: Machinima is back! »
“Chewie, we’re back for Episode 3 of the Flickering Myth Movie Show.”
In the May edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show, we go trailer crazy, disecting and discussing the latest teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and having an alternative look at the cameos in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
We’re also looking at the state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Who is in the new line-up? How many more gems does Thanos need for his funky gauntlet? What can we now expect leading into Captain America: Civil War?
And if that wasn’t enough Marvel fun, our very own Luke Owen sits down with Daredevil star Charlie Cox to chat about the Avengers, who he’d like the Man Without Fear to team up with and what can we expect from the just-announced Season 2.

Mercy Graves originally appeared in "Superman: The Animated Series" (1996) as the bodyguard/personal assistant of 'Superman' archenemy, 'Lex Luthor'.
Originally the leader of a gang of female thieves...
...Luthor was impressed by her mixture of ruthlessness and street savvy.
He offered her a job, taking her in...
"...making her his 'right-hand', entrusting her with his personal security and dirty work.
A proficient martial artist, Mercy uses a rough, street-form of kickboxing as her preferred form of attack. She is also an expert with most forms of handheld weapons. Her habitual dress is a chauffeur's uniform with a very short skirt, a chauffeur's cap, nylons and high heeled boots.

Happy Batman Day, everyone! Around the world, May 1st may mark a spring holiday, but here, it marks the first appearance of the Dark Knight, in Detective Comics No. 27, in 1939.
For the past 76 years, the Caped Crusader has been fighting Gotham City evildoers in comic books, movies, TV shows, and pretty much anywhere else you can shine a Bat-signal. Throughout the years, Bruce Wayne's alter ego has gone through many incarnations, not just in actors (from Adam West to Michael Keaton to Christian Bale to Ben Affleck, among the many), but also in character, from haunted avenger to squeaky-clean do-gooder to campy clown to kinky prowler to world-weary fighter. He's due for yet another change this week, with the releases of DC's Batman No. 40 -- in which Bruce Wayne and the Joker finally kill each other (or do they?) and a special issue of DC's Divergence, where an undisclosed character »

Amongst Americans such as myself, there is a certain stereotype about our neighbors to the north. There’s a belief that Canadians are, for lack of a better word, nice. That during a visit to Canada, an American would be more likely to ride a moose around like a horse than hear the F-word. That hockey players are the only remotely dangerous people you could possibly meet in Canada, and even then, that they would only pummel you under the watchful eye of a referee whom they will later respectfully follow to the penalty box. This stereotype is perhaps best summed up by this scene in Michael Moore’s lone fiction film, Canadian Bacon, where Dan Aykroyd politely upbraids an invading group of American revolutionaries for not printing their anti-Canada graffiti in both English and French.
As stereotypes go, it’s a fairly positive one. But making stereotypes, even positive ones, »

Written and Drawn by Des Taylor | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp
Although I am familiar with artist/ illustrator Des Taylor, mainly through his fantastic retro Superman illustrations, I have not seen his work in a honest-to-goodness sequential art comic book before so approached this offering from Titan Comics with some excitement. Des Taylor is the writer/ artist, so the book succeeds or fails solely with him.
The set-up, although a lot of fun, is a little on the fantastical side. Scarlett, the title character, is essentially a secret agent for the CIA, though her cover is as head of security for a top fashion company, which happens to be run by her mother, who also worked for the CIA. The writing and dialogue help to fill us in with what we need to know about this world as we go along, even as Scarlett fights her way through »

Alternate Realities: Infinite Possibilities – Justice League: Gods & Monsters falls into a category of storytelling where our well-known characters and the worlds they inhabit are re-imagined. This documentary explores the various attempts by writers to have a little fun and tinker with the characters, resulting in exceptional storytelling that posed thought-provoking questions to audiences.
Calculated Risks: The Making of Gods and Monsters – Justice League: Gods & Monsters was an idea that pushed the boundaries. It began with that challenging question writers face: “What haven’t we seen before? »
