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…
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. »

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. »
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 »

Sneak Peek your first look @ Japanese actress Tao Okamoto as the character 'Mercy Graves', the personal bodyguard of 'Lex Luthor' on the set of director Zack Snyder's currently shooting "Man Of Steel sequel "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":
The character Mercy Graves debuted in "Superman: The Animated Series" (1996).
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 and 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

“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 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.

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!
Last week, I asked a simple question: Is the DC Cinematic Universe–the Warner Bros. back-of-the-napkin plan to launch an all-out assault on Marvel Studios by unleashing a double-digit boatload of superhero movies between now and 2020–actually a thing? Will the Man of Steel-verse actually transform into a cape-ier alternative to the Avengers-verse? Or is this a Valiant-Comics-in-1992 thing–a situation where all the elaborate and ambitious universe-building plans will ultimately dead-end »

Welcome To Issue 59!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation to the detriment of no one. It usually has spoilers.
Yesterday, we got some rumblings about two new properties on the super franchise scene, one for the McU in Inhumans and one for DC/WB in the really horrible Aquaman scripting process they have going.
It was weird yesterday to see Variety drudge up a report from June that was basically saying: Yes, Jason Momoa is Aquaman in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. It got picked up a lot, because when the trades pull from something that distant there’s usually a reason. »

(Cbr) The DC Comics additions to The CW's superhero universe are growing as it was announced this week that actor Clancy Brown will appear on "The Flash" as a classic Justice League villain. The Hollywood Reporter had word that Brown will take on the role of General Wade Eiling -- better known as The General -- starting in the fifth episode of the freshman drama. Eiling will take a role within the show leading a black ops military team hunting down Plastique -- another villain who originated in the "Captain Atom" comics being played by Kelly Frye. The General has a rather winding path through the DC Universe. The character was created by the '80s "Captain Atom" team of Cary Bates and Pat Broderick, though he arguably earned his greatest prominence in the pages of Grant Morrison and Howard Porter's "Jla" when the creators merged his mind with »

In 1960 Bill Finger wrote a Batman story involving a South American rebel group releasing a mysterious “Rainbow Creature” composed of red, green, yellow, and blue on an unsuspecting rural village. Each color holds a power, when a power is used the associated color fades to white. Batman and Robin eventually devise a plan to make it use all its powers simultaneously. It works, and the creature fades entirely white. Then, before The Dynamic Duo can strike, it implodes into dust and blows away in the wind. This was Batman #134. And though the issue was released in 1960, it is the pinnacle of the 1950s Batman: bright, whimsical, otherworldly, and downright bizarre. Did this tone stem from post-War censorship and economic realities, or something else?
The eras of The Batman are many. Even now, as I’m writing this or you are reading it somewhere in time, the character is ever »

“We’re turtles! Fighting turtles! Not normal slow-poke turtles!” The above quote is not, unfortunately, the refrain of a song in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The newest film in the franchise, demolished by critics, may not actually be much fun at all. Fortunately that doesn’t really matter for us, just as it didn’t matter for Hercules or Planes: Fire and Rescue or Maleficent earlier this year. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a great excuse to talk about cartoons, the bonkers relatives of this floppy blockbuster that share its reptilian heroes if not its sense of style. The (likely badly translated) quote above is from the theme of Mutant Turtles: Superman Legend. To call it a television “series” would be accurate but also something of a fib, given that this obscure entry in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles canon ended after just two episodes. It was produced in 1996 by the Japanese animation studio Ashi Productions, otherwise »

Our weekly round-up of all the latest superhero news and talking points, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC Cinematic Universe, Gotham, The Flash, Arrow, Batman: Assault on Arkham, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Young Justice, Teen Titans Go!, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3, Black Panther, Daredevil, Deadpool, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Venom Carnage, Kick-Ass 3 and more….
Well, the big showdown between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America 3 is no more, with Warner Bros. blinking and shifting the release of BvS away from Marvel’s May 6th 2016 date to March 25th 2016 (a wise move, considering it will now face very little in the way of competition). The news was followed by the announcement that Warner Bros. has finally pulled the trigger on a DC Cinematic Universe by setting a further Nine »

The CW has been busy over the last few weeks with populating its upcoming series The Flash with exciting DC Comics characters, but this new addition just may take the cake. The character himself isn’t all that interesting or well-known, but the actor that will play him is. According to THR, The Shawshank Redemption, Starship Troopers, and beloved voice actor Clancy Brown has joined the series in a “pivotal recurring role.”
Brown will play General Wade Eiling a.k.a. The General, the head of a black ops army team pursuing Plastique (Kelly Frye), in hopes of turning her into a human weapon. The General is described as “a tall and imposing man with a face carved from years of duty.” He’s also a fanatic intent on protecting American interests around the world, and will have “ties to a central Flash character.”
There are multiple versions of The General in the comics, »
