Entertainment Geekly: The Batman Top 100

29 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

So on Monday, I watched the Gotham series premiere with about 8 million of my friends. I started writing a column about the show and what it says (accidentally and/or purposefully) about the role of Batman in pop culture right now. But working on that column got me thinking more generally about Batman: A character who has been around for 75 years, a figure in my cultural consciousness since before my memory begins. The next thing I knew, I was making a list of my favorite Batman things–the movies, the TV shows, the vividly recalled comic book story arcs and standalone issues, »

“He is the quintessential American superhero,” said Susan McGowan, the Postal Service’s director of stamp services and corporate licensing. “What a great place to celebrate him—on a stamp. We »

Marvel and Jack Kirby Estate Settle Over Copyright Dispute

27 September 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

There’s no denying that comic book characters – and superheroes specifically – have become a great source of profit for movie and television studios. Every year sees more blockbusters featuring DC and Marvel characters, and the list of new, upcoming television shows reads like a ‘who’s who’s’ of comics’ most popular titles. Yet, while comic book movies and TV shows flourish, the actual comic book industry suffers.

Nowhere is that impact felt more than with the writers and artists responsible for creating these characters in the first place. DC Comics/Warner Bros. and the families of Superman creators Joe Siegel and Jerry Shuster fought much of the past few years over rights to the Man ...

Wizard World: Interview With Iconic Comic Book Artist & Hall Of Famer Neal Adams

26 September 2014 6:06 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Star Wars Episode VII Concept Image Depicts Epic Lightsaber Duel

26 September 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Another day, another image from Star Wars: Episode VII, but this one just happens to be the best thing I've seen from the movie so far.  It depicts a lightsaber duel under the Millenium Falcon with a Darth Vader-like figure fighting a Rebel with a green lightsaber.  It's epic looking, and for a second I get excited but then I remember the prequels and how flat they were visually (not to mention narratively).  Then I get excited all over again because there's no way this will be like that, right? They can't possibly make the same mistakes can they? Yesterday we saw the Chrome Troopers (as a follow up to the new Stormtroopers and the costume designs for Han Solo).  But now we have this gorgeous image, besotted somewhat by an ill-conceived watermark on the part of the hosting site.  Hit the jump to take a look at the new »

Invaders from Mars (1986) review

24 September 2014 12:54 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott

Invaders from Mars (1986)

Directed by: Tobe Hooper

Written by: Richard Blake, Don Jakoby, and Dan O’Bannon

Cast: Hunter Carson (David Gardner), Karen Black (Linda Magnusson), Timothy Bottoms (George Gardner), Laraine Newman (Ellen Gardner), James Karen (Gen. Climet Wilson), Bud Cort (Mark Weinstein)

The best that I can tell, nostalgia runs on a thirty year cycle. I can speculate that what everybody watches as children, shapes them into adults with a deep seated desire to emulate it or watch it being emulated. A select few make it to a position where they can actually interject that nostalgia into the contemporary mainstream, and satisfy both the fans of the original material, but also put such a spit shine on the old premise that even the youngsters dig it, and have no idea that it’s based on something way older than they are.

18 September 2014 7:10 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

WB is working on a massive live action Justice League project, but a major reason for the anticipation is due to a animated series that was on WB / Cartoon Network for a few years.

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 »
