We’ve got a wedding on Arrow; never thought we’d see this. And it’s actually really nice, despite the fill in minister and strangest wedding vows you’ve ever heard. But, there’s a 3rd party in their limo waiting to wisk the Diggles off to Fiji; Deadshot. The Squad Rides Again!
I love that Diggle has these side adventures with the Suicide Squad, and what better way to spend a honeymoon than treading into a foreign land to rescue an American politician? It’s a small team, Diggle, Layla, Deadshot and Cupid, who does get in some girl chat with Layla about her wedding in a funny scene. This was the least interesting Squad story yet though. There’s a double cross that leads to the team believing this is a suicide mission until Lawton (Deadshot) rises up as this sacrificial hero. »

The Top 5 Coolest Animated Incarnations of Mr. Freeze!by Matt MacNabb
Mr. Freeze is one of the most enigmatic and emotional villains in the Batman's rogues gallery. Orginally dubbed 'Mr. Zero' when he was first introduced to comic book fans back in 1959. His appearances on the 1966 Batman television show altered his name forever to Mr. Freeze! The real birth of this once one-dimensional character, however, came in the Batman cartoons. Legions of Gotham will now countdown the top five animated appearances of the tragic Dr. Victor Fries!
The Young Justice cartoon ended too quickly after just two seasons, but Batman fans were treated to a few appearances by the king of cold before it was done! Mr. Freeze appeared in three episodes of the popular series, voiced by Keith Szarabajka. This beefed up older version of Freeze was captured by Batman and Robin and transported back to Arkham Asylum, »

The next few years are an exciting time for superhero movie fans: Marvel is about to end its Phase 2 in spectacular style with Age Of Ultron and Ant Man, Phase 3 kicking off with the eagerly anticipated Captain America: Civil War, The X-Men franchise is delivering three films in 2016. To top that off Warner Bros and DC are finally getting their act together with plenty of Justice League characters on the big screen, starting with Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice next year too.
But despite heroes like Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Wonder Woman and the Justice League finally making it to the big screen over the next few years, it doesn’t meant there haven’t been attempts to realise these superheroes in cinema before. There have been countless failed projects – some more famous than others – to deliver a whole host of comic-characters to cinema audiences.

Clarence sure is a positive guy. The titular star of Clarence: Mystery Pinata, a new DVD set including 12-episodes of said show’s first season from Cartoon Network in addition to the short that launched the series, the plump little cartoon boy is a happy, friendly fellow looking to make friends and live in a world where everyone likes each other. There are no action explosions or fist-fights. Superman and the Justice League don’t make an appearance; it’s just innocent, albeit occasionally infantile, silly fun. Call it a throwback to a better time when kids thought “streaming” meant going to the creek out back.

A few days ago Dwayne Johnson shared some thoughts on his role as Black Adam in Warner Bros.’ Shazam movie and the possibility of the character joining the Justice League at some point in the future, and now the Furious 7 star has offered up another update on the progress of the 2019 DC feature during an interview with MTV News.
“We haven’t picked a Shazam yet. We have been working on the script. Half the script’s already come in. Fantastic. I’m very excited about it. And what I’m really excited about is – because I’ve lived with this character and this opportunity for almost 10 years now, so it’s like, in my DNA – I’m like a little kid, and it’s the opportunity to create his journey, but that journey has to start out properly. And starting off properly is [Black Adam] not being a hero. That’s got to be earned. »

Sneak Peek more about the origin of superhero 'Cyborg', aka 'Victor Stone' played by actor Ray Fisher in director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", two upcoming "Justice League" features and a standalone "Cyborg" film:
'Cyborg' was created by writer Marv Wolfman and illustrator George Pérez, debuting as a 'special insert' in "DC Comics Presents" #26 (October 1980). In 2011, Cyborg was established as a founding member of the "Justice League".

We reported yesterday that the Black Adam character from Shazam!, played by Dwayne Johnson, may be included in the two-part Justice League movie. While the actor continues his promotional tour for Furious 7, he shared more about Shazam!, revealing that he doesn't know who will play the title character yet, and that he thinks his character is an anti-hero. Here's what he had to say below.
"I can't wait to share more casting news by the way. No, we haven't picked a Shazam! yet, and we have been working on the script. Half the scripts [have] already come in. Fantastic, very excited about it. And what I'm really excited about is - because, again, I've lived with this character, and this opportunity for almost 10 years now, so it's like, in my DNA! I'm like a little kid, and it's the opportunity to create his journey, but that journey has to start out properly. »
During a recent interview with IGN, Johnson was asked if his long-term hopes are for Black Adam to turn from villain to hero as a member of the Justice League.
"I think you always want to leave that creatively open, that he could join the Justice League," Johnson answered.
He went on to say: "That's the fun part of creating this character right now and everybody involved, from the studio, from New Line, to Warner Bros as well, to the writer, our producing partners... You definitely want to engage in his heroic side, but that has to be earned and with the mythology of Black Adam starting off as a slave, »
Dwayne Johnson recently teased that we could possibly see Warner Brothers’ Shazam film earlier than its current 2019 release date, and now the wrestler-turned-movie star has suggested that he may suit up as Shazam villain Black Adam as soon as Justice League: Part One in 2017.
The folks over at IGN managed to get Johnson talking about Black Adam while doing the press rounds for Furious 7. As always, the actor seems incredibly excited to play the powerful character – who he’s described as more of an an antihero than all-out villain – and said that the door is open for him to either face off with (or even join) the Justice League at some point. When asked if he’d be interested in exploring the character’s more heroic side, Johnson teased:
“I think so, and I think you always leave that creatively open, that he could join the Justice League and I think… »

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is currently on the press tour for Universal's Furious 7, and while he's primarily answering questions about the upcoming action sequel, the good folks over at IGN managed to slip him a quick query about his upcoming role as Black Adam and whether or not he could potentially show up and/or join the Justice League. Check out his answer in the video below and if the video doesn't work for you, read the transcript that follows: IGN: We are so excited to see Black Adam as this anti-hero imagining there's going to be this antagonistic relationship with Shazam, but I'm wondering, are you interested in exploring his heroic side down the line. Do you think that he could eventually join the Justice League? Dwyane 'The Rock' Johnson: I think so, and I think you always want to leave that creatively open, that he could join »

Even if you’re not a big comic book reader, chances are you will have heard of The Flash, especially now he’s the star of his own hit TV series. Moviegoers will also get better acquainted with The Fastest Man Alive when Ezra Miller plays him in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and then Justice League in 2017 and his own movie in 2018.
Introduced in 1956 and created by writers Robert Kanigher and John Broome and penciler Carmine Infantino, forensic scientist Barry Allen received his powers when a freak bolt of lightning stuck the chemicals in his lab and connected him with the Speed Force.
Visually unique and with powers enabling him to travel the speed of light, The Flash is one of most likeable, relatable, and greatest heroes in the DC Universe. However, he’s not the only man to have held the mantle, »

(Scott’s out this week, so I’m filling in.) Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has always gone back and forth between trying to emulate the fun action of the Marvel movies while taking on a stodgier seriousness that comes from dealing with the superpowered with a kind of bureaucratic bullishness. But “One of Us” managed a balance between these two in a way that reminded me of animated superhero shows like X-Men: Evolution or Justice League. While the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are learning to become more trusting of each other, the villains are teaming up to create a gang of superpowered misfits not unlike Lex Luthor’s Legion of Doom or Mystique’s Brotherhood.We open up on a stormy night in Coney Island where Drea de Matteo (whom I last saw in New York, I Love You, back when Bradley Cooper had appropriately aged romantic partners »

Warning: Huge spoilers ahead from Tuesday’s game-changing time-travel episode, “Out of Time.” If you’ve already seen the episode, you are safe to read on. If not, what are you doing here?!
Holy moly, did The Flash just rewrite history?
The CW’s breakout hit appeared to blow everything up (and we mean everything) in Tuesday’s game-changing episode, “Out of Time.” From Barry’s first experience with time travel and the reveal of Dr. Harrison Wells’ true identity to Iris learning the truth about The Flash and Cisco’s not-so-permanent (but still heartbreaking) death, The Flash didn’t hold back any punches. But, will they all stick? The short answer: It’s … complicated.

DC Comics’ Justice League may be a few years away from fruition on the bigscreen, but the comicbook publisher is steadily building a powerful roster of superhero shows on TV. The CW’s hit “Arrow” has already spawned an equally successful spinoff in “The Flash,” and now executive producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim are looking to further cement their empire with another super-powered offshoot, this time taking characters from “Arrow” and “The Flash” and combining them in an epic team-up series. The spinoff will be produced by the trio, along with Sarah Schechter.
Berlanti — who is also exec producing CBS’ “Supergirl” series with Kreisberg, Schechter and Ali Adler — told Variety that the new show is designed to be “most similar to our crossover episodes, where you feel that ‘event-iness,’ but all the time.”
“For us, first and foremost, with all of [our shows], it’s about ‘how is it its own thing? »

Writer Robert Kirkman, best known as the creator of the Walking Dead, had some strong but honest words for DC/Warner Bros., regarding their approach to their competition with Marvel Comics. What criticism does Kirkman have for DC?
Although DC is doing well against its rival Marvel on television, it’s been trailing behind in regards to their cinematic productions. While Marvel is well into its Phase 2 projects, the Dcu has only released the Man of Steel so far, in regard to their shared universe. They have high hopes for next year’s Superman v. Batman: Dawn of Justice, which will segue into the two-part Justice League film. DC announced their own long-term plans only after Marvel publically mapped out their extended Phase 3 ideas, so when DC countered by doing the same thing, many people saw it as a case of playing ‘let’s-do-what-they-do’. One of those people was Robert Kirkman, »

Outspoken comic book writer Robert Kirkman, the man behind the hugely successful The Walking Dead, has spoken out against DC’s Cinematic Universe going up against Marvel. While not exactly saying, “Marvel rocks and DC sucks”, the writer did have some harsh words about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and its lead up to Justice League.
Anyone would be foolish to think that Marvel hasn’t done something extremely special,” Kirkman said during his SXSW panel (via EW). “I think of Iron Man ending with with a surprise cameo from Samuel L. Jackson [mentioning] The Avengers – you were like, ‘What?! How did that happen?!’ People forget that was a surprise. Everything that came out of that was very organic and very exciting. I think [DC] announcing you’re going to do a Justice League movie after a Superman movie, that was neat and had some awesome things in it, but it »

Entertainment Weekly reports that The Walking Dead creator spoke at South by Southwest and revealed that he doesn't think DC are competing with Marvel in the excitement stakes.
Kirkman said: "I'm going to get in trouble here... Anyone would be foolish to think that Marvel hasn't done something extremely special. I think of Iron Man ending with a surprise cameo from Samuel L Jackson [mentioning] The Avengers - you were like, 'What?! How did that happen?!'
"People forget that was a surprise. Everything that came out of that was very organic and very exciting. I think [DC] announcing you're going to do a Justice League movie after a Superman movie, that was neat and had some awesome things in it, but it wasn't like amazing or groundbreaking - I shouldn't have said that. It was an awesome movie, »
