Fans who attended New York Comic Con over the weekend got to see the first look at the new animated movie Batman: Bad Blood, which is expected to debut on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD formats in early 2016. In case you couldn't make it to Nycc at the Javits Center last weekend, the new episode of DC All Access has revealed the first trailer for the latest DC Universe Original Movie. The web series also spoke with Jason O'Mara, who provides the voice of Batman, who helped break down the plot.
"Basically, it picks up with Batman kicking ass, as he does, and gets a little out of his depth. I'm just going to tell you what happens. Batwoman comes along, and basically messes everything up. No, she doesn't, but she's using guns, and that's not really Batman's thing. She gets herself into a little bit of trouble, and Batman sacrifices himself, »
Fun, lighthearted superhero show Supergirl was the clear standout among the five TV shows showcased at yesterday's closing day of New York Comic Con. This was partly because Supergirl was the only show, including Gotham and Heroes of Tomorrow, that presented its entire pilot prior to a panel discussion featuring showrunner Ali Adler and actors Gil Bellows and Mehcad Brooks. Bellows and Brooks, who respectively play Justice League fan favorite Maxwell Lord and Superman mainstay Jimmy Olsen, were winsome throughout the panel. But Adler, along with the pilot, was next-level charming. Vulture attended the panel and picked up five things you can look forward to in season one.1. The Writers' Room Is 50 Percent Female Adler was quick to address the fact she's a female superhero showrunner. This is a bit like being a unicorn, but a showrunner, too. "We're all so excited that it's Supergirl, and that is the conversation »

Well well well it looks as if DC's Dark Universe hasn't been scrapped, after all. In fact, it's looking like production will be moving swiftly if their new producer has anything to say about it.
A few months ago, writer/director, Guillermo Del Toro walked away from this project in favor of the now indefinitely delayed Pacific Rim 2. As soon as that happened, most of the movie world thought that DC's Dark Universe, aka Justice League Dark, would be just another great idea that failed to come to fruition. However, all is not lost.
Enter producer-extraordinaire Scott Rudin who's resume consists of The Truman Show, No Country For Old Men, The Social Network, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Captain Phillips, Ex Machina, and the recently finished Zoolander 2, among many others. With a resume like his, it's a small wonder why Warner Bros. has tabbed Rudin to work on this movie. »

We reported last month that a new Justice League cartoon may be in the works after a picture leaked from Cartoon Network headquarters that featured a poster that indicated as such. Legions of Gotham has been famous for well over a decade for our scoops in the world of animated Batman, and as such we have made a lot of contacts within the industry. I have obtained sufficient confirmation from enough reliable contacts to confirm for the fans that this series Is in development at Cartoon Network.
Its important to note that Cartoon Network was hoping to keep this one under wraps, so the liklihood of much leaking out in the way of spoilers before they officially announce is very small. The old days of the internet are long gone, when people close to a series could get away with giving the fans peeks into what they're working on. Contracts »

Like Deadpool in its time, Warner Bros' Justice League Dark movie was one of those superhero films we never expected to see the light of day.
But according to a new report - and coming as much of a surprise like Deadpool - the supernatural DC Comics adaptation is apparently moving ahead and is apparently a 'priority' for the studio.
Details on the project remain light, but it is expected to star John Constantine forming a team out of the pick of DC's magical characters - such as Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Deadman and Etrigan, the Demon - to combat a supernatural threat.
The Justice League Dark movie hit something of a road bump earlier this year when writer-director Guillermo del Toro reportedly departed the production; in June, the Hollywood Reporter broke the disappointing news that he was "no longer attached to the project."
The good news is that Justice League Dark is still very much alive at Warner; that's according to a report over at the Tracking Board, where it's said that the DC comic adaptation is moving ahead under the watchful eye of producer Scott Rudin. Rudin doesn't have much form in the superhero movie realm, but he's produced all kinds of unusual and sometimes great films since his career began in the early 80s - Clueless, The Truman Show, Team America and Moneyball are just a few of the films he's been involved with. »
Though the project seemed to have stalled with the exit of Guillermo Del Toro as director at last report, it seems the so-called "Justice League Dark" project at Warner Bros. Pictures has scored a new lease on life.
The Tracking Board reports that Scott Rudin has come onboard to produce the long delayed release and is pushing hard to get the film made. At present the script is undergoing some tweeking and meetings with directors are expected to commence shortly ahead of filming kicking off next year.
The site also has a brief synopsis which says the film begins when a series of ancient tomes are stolen by a madman hellbent on humanity's end. Due to this, occult detective John Constantine seeks out a group of heroes that specialize in the mystic and arcane in order to save the world.
The film is expected to be a part of the »

Back in June, Warner Bros.' gestating Justice League Dark, also known as Dark Universe, suffered a serious blow when Guillermo del Toro backed away from the project he was originally planning to direct. While the studio still doesn't have a director in place for the superhero adaptation, The Tracking Board reveals the project is moving forward once again, with Scott Rudin coming aboard to produce. Guillermo del Toro is still attached as a produce as well, but the project is now moving ahead at a much faster pace.
Scott Rudin is reportedly moving quickly to try and secure a production start date for sometime in 2016. The producer has already been approaching directors, and has been making updates to the script, written by Guillermo del Toro. The site reveals that Guillermo del Toro backed out to focus on Pacific Rim 2, which was officially delayed last month to give the director and his team more time. »
Like Deadpool (which is now getting made, as you’ll hopefully already know), Justice League Dark/Dark Universe has become one of those movies where it’s hard to believe will ever come to fruition. Pacific Rim helmer Guillermo Del Toro has been attached to direct for years, but after he recently departed the project, it appeared as if that could be it for the long delayed release.
Well, a new report points to it finally happening thanks to prolific producer Scott Rudin (Steve Jobs). He and Warner Bros. are putting Justice League Dark on the fast track, with tweaks being made to the script and the hunt for a new director set to begin shortly. Very little is known about the movie, though Tracking Board does offer up the following plot synopsis:
“It involves a series of ancient tomes stolen by a madman hellbent on the destruction of humanity. »

Disney, Marvel and Pixar solidified their upcoming movie slates for the next few years, setting release dates for 19 different feature films. These wildly diverse movies, which range from superhero sequels (Ant-Man and the Wasp) to animated projects (Coco) will all be released in just a three year span, between 2017 and 2020. Unfortunately, the studios didn't offer any titles for some of these release dates, but these projects surely represent a diverse slate for all of these studios.
Starting with Disney, the studio set a December 22, 2017 release date for an Untitled Disney Fairy Tale, which will be a live action project. Disney didn't release any plot details for this fairy tale, but it will go up against the animated sequel The Croods 2. Disney set two release dates for 2018, with Gigantic opening on March 9, 2018 and Untitled Disney Fairy Tale #2 set for November 2, 2018, both of which don't have any direct competitors as of yet. »
Back in March 2014, Disney announced that The Incredibles 2 is finally moving forward, with The Incredibles writer-director Brad Bird returning to the helm. While there is still much we don't know about the animated movie sequel, the studio announced today that The Incredibles 2 will hit theaters on June 21, 2019. As of now, no other movies have been slated for release on that day, but it comes just one week after Warner Bros.' Justice League Part 2 opens on June 14, 2019.
Writer-director Brad Bird revealed last month that the Incredibles 2 script is almost done. It isn't known yet if the filmmaker has finished his work on the script, or when we might get the first story details. He did tease in April that his sequel will examine superhero movie trends, which is fitting since his sequel will open between DC's Justice League Part 2 and Marvel's Inhumans (July 12, 2019).

As the cover implies, Victor Stone does not catch breaks. Cyborg #3 picks up immediately after the cliffhanger ending of the last issue, and we focus on the Technosapiens infecting Robert in his own living room. Elsewhere, more of their kind open a portal in Downtown Detroit and begin the invasion.
Ivan Reis embraces the normal war-torn backgrounds as we pick up 24 hours later with Cyborg and Sebastian leading a group of civilians to safety. Even though their surroundings are less than great, Cyborg still cracks a joke or two about this is just what the Justice League does. He literally stands out here given his blue and white color scheme from colorist Adriano Lucas. During some narration, Cyborg surmises that the nightmares that he’s »

Filmmaker George Miller has already quashed those rumors that he's under consideration to direct the "Man of Steel" direct sequel, confirming in interviews that though some early discussions did happen regarding DC Comics properties he might want to tackle - he revealed he wasn't interested.
Of course Miller had some big plans for DC Comics properties a few years ago with his cancelled "Justice League" film. That film had D.J. Cotrana slated to play Superman/Clark Kent, a character that Miller finds challenging to embrace. Speaking with IGN recently, he elaborated on his issues with Superman as a character and how he would've fitted into Miller's Jl:
"I think its been said many times before: he's potentially a very boring character because he has no faults, so you really have to find his demons really to get an internal conflict going. You've really got to do that. Whether that's »

Back in October, just weeks after Warner Bros. and DC Comics unveiled their full superhero movie slate, a rumor surfaced that the studio's stand alone Wonder Woman movie may actually be a prequel to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, set in the 1920s. That report was never confirmed, but another report claimed that Wonder Woman may be hundreds of years old in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, rumors which have many fans wondering how the story may play out, between both movies. A new report has surfaced from Den of Geek, which claims that Wonder Woman will actually have multiple settings.
The site's source claims that each act of the story may have its own setting, with all three said to span just over 100 years. The first setting is Wonder Woman's home island of Themyscira, which has been her home since the character debuted in the DC Comics back in the 1940s. »
Although the rumours of George Miller directing Man Of Steel 2 turned out to be false (George did admit to having a meeting with Warner Bros.), it wasn't the first time that the Mad Max: Fury Road director's name had been attached to a Superman film. Back in 2009, his Justice League movie was almost ready to go before production was halted and the project was shelved.... Read More »

Superheroes have been leaping off the printed page and onto the small screen for as long as television has been in existence, and there’s never been a better time for comic book fans to binge on the TV exploits of their favourite crime-fighting characters with dozens of series either in production or on the way…
Interestingly it’s DC Comics who are currently leading the charge on television, thanks to the likes of Arrow and The Flash – both of which have seemingly changed the way superheroes are brought to TV. No longer are superhero shows camp and Ott, instead they have become much more like the very comic books that inspired them, telling rich stories within huge universes; and thankfully television networks haven’t been afraid to bring the epic “crossover” to the small screen either. Be it Arrow and The Flash and their irregular team-ups, or 90s Flash »

Following the commercial and critical success of his action sequel Mad Max: Fury Road, director George Miller was rumored to be the frontrunner to direct a true sequel to 2013's Man Of Steel. However, this rumor was quickly put to bed by the director himself at a press junket last week. This wasn't the first time Miller has been linked to Superman as back in 2009, he was all set to direct a Justice League movie, which had actor D.J. Cotrana (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) slated to play Clark Kent, before a last-minute issue with the Australian government shut down production and ultimately led to the project being scrapped entirely. In a recent interview with IGN, Miller elaborated on what he would've done differently with the iconic DC hero in his cancelled Justice League film and potentially teased what we may have seen had he accepted the Man Of Steel 2 job. »
Ricky Church reviews Justice League #44…
Darkseid versus Anti-Monitor! A corrupted Superman versus Lex Luthor! Myrina Black versus Grail! This chapter of “Darkseid War” has it all—plus an ending that will change the League forever!
Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok once again pull the carpet out from the readers as they deliver a stunning twist in the climax of Justice League #44, part four of ‘The Darkseid War’. The war between Darkseid and the Anti-Monitor heats up, drawing the Justice League in even more than they already were. It’s an intense chapter as they’re stuck between two gods and their armies fighting a very destructive battle.
The League is still split up with Batman and Green Lantern investigating the mysterious origins of the Anti-Monitor, Superman and Luthor still trapped on Apokolips and the rest of the League fighting against the two powerful gods. It could have been a tough juggling act, »

The unstoppable team of the Justice League may be coming back to television, according to IGN.
Recently, Cartoon Network Canada posted a message on Facebook that hinted at a reboot for the superhero league that includes Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.
From Cartoon Network Canada:
"We will be premiering a new Justice League series, but not likely until next Fall."
The message has since been removed and replaced with a statement that says Cartoon Network "can't confirm any information regarding a potential new Justice League series."
It would hardly be the first time the Justice League has seen a revival on television. Since 1967, the superhero team has been fairly consistently represented on air in either animated or live action form. The »
