Not too long ago it was announced that Warner Bros. had earmarked release dates for nine mystery DC Comics adaptations between 2016 and 2020 (not counting Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice). Since then we have discovered that Shazam and Justice League are likely to occupy two of those dates, although the other seven still remain shrouded in secrecy. However, now we may know the identity of another DC Comics movie currently in production at Warner Bros.
The Suicide Squad may not be quite as well known as some of the other characters to originate from the pages of DC Comics, but they are certainly getting their fair share of attention lately. The criminal super-team has featured in their own direct-to-dvd animated movie earlier this year, and even guest starred in the hugely popular action series Arrow (with a return planned for its third season this fall). Now, David Ayer is reportedly »

Ever since the cancellation of Justice League International in 2012, Booster Gold has remained an enigmatic figure. The annual which concluded Jli had Booster Gold encounter a future version of himself sporting and A.R.G.U.S. logo before both of them were vanished at the hand of some unseen force. Booster has been completely Mia with the exception of a guest appearance on All-Star Western. After being gone for nearly two years, Booster Gold returns under the pen of his creator, Dan Jurgens.
Unfortunately new readers will likely be turned away confused with more questions than answers unless they have a working knowledge of Booster Gold. »

I love comics. (Surprise! Or not.) I love all kinds of comics. And that includes material published by Viz, Vertical, Yen Press… Oh dear. I must mean… manga.
Even fans of American comics look at manga with disdain. They roll their eyes and pick up their single issues and graphic novels, snubbing black and white volumes, intentionally avoiding what has somehow become a “teen market”. But, surprise (for real this time): not all manga is about magical schoolgirls traveling through sparkly dimensions. Manga is just the Japanese word for comic. And remember how pissed off you get when people think of American comics as cheesy fairy tales about men in tights?
Manga can be just as monstrous as the latest horror movie, my friends. And here are five of my absolute favorite works—leaving out seminal titles such as Akira and Ghost In The Shell and more recent hits »

Justice League Dark is a fan film made out of love and for exhibition purposes only. Justice League Dark and its characters are owned by DC Comics and Warner Bros Studios. Our goal was to show our love and appreciation for characters we have read for years. Plot: Constantine and Zatanna embark on a journey in an attempt to release her father from hell. Along the way, they meet a seedy character (Deadman) who tries to stop them. »
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, »

Ever since McDonald's chose to discontinue their delicious Hot Mustard sauce I've avoided eating at their restaurants, but if they bring this new Batman burger to the states I may have reconsider. Over in Hong Kong, McDonald's is unveiling new Justice League-themed meals. First up, a salute to Gotham's Caped Crusader with the Batman Diner Double Beef burger. I haven't been able to verify what the contents are of the burger. It appears that it has an egg on it. I assume China is doing that to honor the great musical lyrics, "Jingle bells Batman smells, robin layed an egg." The meal also comes with Squeezy Cheesy Fries and their Sparkling Green Apple Tea. And no, you don't get the green apple as seen in the image below. That healthy treat isn't for consumption, just for show. »
If you live in Hong Kong and you're a fan of McDonalds and the Justice League superheroes, then you're in luck! They are going to be rolling out a series of Justice League superhero meals, and they've revealed the first one, which is for Batman.
This is the Batman Diner Double Beef burger, and it comes with Squeezy Cheesy Fries. Oh yeah… you heard that right… Squeezy Cheesy Fries. That burger looks nasty. I don't have a problem with egg on a burger, but I don't know about those sauces and onions.
I'm curious to see what the other Justice League meals will look like. Would you try this Batman burger?

While debating the necessity of a Justice League Dark movie with Shannon Barnson from the "Geek Show Pod Cast", I brought up that Justice League Dark could/would be DC's Guardians of the Galaxy. "They have to have their Iron Man first." He replied. He is absolutely right. DC's Movie Studio has yet to find their Iron Man. Let's take a look at the recipe that made the Iron Man movie such a huge success. Add 1 second rate character: Before 2008 very few people knew that Iron Man was more than a triathlon in Hawaii or a Black Sabbath song. Though an important component in the comicbook version of Avengers, many comicbook fans doubted the character’s ability to hold his own in a full length feature film. 1 Cupof a relatively unknown actor (at the time): It's difficult to think of Hollywood’s leading man and now Marvel's poster boy, »
With news surfacing recently about Warner Bros.' far more aggressive pursuit of DC Comics-based film releases through the year 2020, many fans and commentators have been wondering exactly which properties will be included on the release calendars besides known films like the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League and an expected Shazam! film. Last week, at least one of those question marks may have been erased with a report from Variety that claimed the studio was actively courting writer-director David Ayer (Fury) to develop a new film based off of the black ops team of antiheroes known as the Suicide Squad. Development of a Suicide Squad film would be a pretty radical departure for Warner Bros., which up until...

Its a shame that comic book character John Constantines bisexuality is being erased for TV we need to see more bi figures in the media
As a teenage comic-book geek, I was captivated by John Constantine like no other character. The hard-drinking, chain-smoking punk rock occultist inhabited a grim and gritty world a million miles from the brighter, tamer settings of the Justice League and Fantastic Four. He was impossibly cynical, believably vulnerable and, like me, bisexual.
Bi male protagonists are pretty hard to come by in popular culture. Thats why its so disappointing especially today as bisexual people around the world mark Celebrate Bisexuality Day that an upcoming television adaptation of Constantines adventures will portray him as straight.

The amount of superhero movies announced over the past few months is obscene. D.C. alone has given us the dates for eleven upcoming movies, among which is rumoured to be stand-alone outings for Batman, Superman and Aquaman after at least one Justice League, while Marvel are looking beyond Avengers: Age Of Ultron, with Dr Strange and Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 now on the slate. If anybody was expecting the superhero genre to slow down they’re going to be waiting for quite a while longer.
But none of those come close to the latest announcement which has sent the entire internet into excitement overload; there’s going to be a Deadpool movie.
Originally a regular Marvel villain before graduating to his own series, the anti-hero has become a central part of Marvel’s expanded roster. Allegedly the alter ego-cum-dominant personality of Wade Wilson, this artificially mutated assassin is »

It was assumed when Marvel began the second phase of their movie universe that Warner Bros. and DC Comics would be rushing to catch up. While they are, indeed, on their way to establishing a full-blown Justice League on the big screen, it’s the small screen that is clearly the priority where DC is concerned. Namely: Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Constantine, Supergirl, and even Lucifer.
In the space of a few months, WB has turned the tables, leaving the film side of the DC Universe to catch up to its televised counterpart; as Arrow star Stephen Amell put it: they’re already “creating a Justice League on ...

Gradually, the identity of the DC Comics movies on Warner Bros' slate becomes apparent. We already know about Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Sandman, Shazam and Justice League. And now you can tick another name off the list, as Variety reports that Suicide Squad is on the way.
It seems a little way along this one, too, as it already has a screenplay in place, from Justin Marks. Dan Lin is taking on producing duties, and David Ayer has been targeted to direct. Ayer has directed End Of Watch, Sabotage and the incoming Brad Pitt movie Fury, and Variety reports that 'the studio feels Ayer is a good fit for the dark and edgy film'.

“Are you in or out?”
The Doctor and Clara wake in the company of two strangers and are quickly told they are to rob a bank. Everything is planned so well, almost as if the planner knows what’s going to happen, that The Doctor quickly realizes that this isn’t a mere bank heist, but a…

Being chased by the bank’s security at all times, the quartet must breach unbreachable security, all the while »

His current film follows the heroic, conflicted crew of a World War II tank. But for a potential next film, Fury director David Ayer may focus more on villains. He’s considering directing an adaptation of DC's Suicide Squad for Warner Bros.The studio and its comics partner has had Justin Marks at work on a script for a couple of years now, quietly developing the idea. But they went even quieter when the focus switched to the Justice League films.Now, with Supes, Bats and co. chugging away healthily towards the screen, talk has turned back to the Squad, who were first drawn together – and often called Task Force X – by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru in 1959, with John Ostrander forming a more modern version.The comics' concept finds villains such as Deadshot, King Shark, Captain Boomerang and Harley Quinn given a chance for redemption by undertaking dangerous missions for the government. »
