Look, I’ll admit it: even I find this piece's headline ridiculous, especially considering what made up the bulk of Comics on Film a couple of weeks ago. But, you can't help what people talk about, so this seemed like a good opportunity to address it. The question of whether or not the original superhero deserves another solo effort in movie theaters is something that seems to have come up recently. With the surfacing of a rumor indicating that Mad Max (and one-time Justice League: Mortal) director George Miller would be taking up the next cinematic adventure for the Man of Steel, yet another rumor has cropped up that would seem to say that Warner Bros. is now unwilling to “risk” another Superman...

In Suicide Squad, Viola Davis portrays Amanda Waller, the tough-as-nails warden of Belle Reve prison, which houses all of the most nefarious and sadistic villains Batman as ever faced. However, her work will extend beyond the borders of this supervillain team-up film. The actress recently revealed that she signed on to portray the character in three films, which presumably includes Suicide Squad. But which ones? She announced this stipulation of her contract to The New York Times, and by now it.s commonplace for actors to sign on for multiple superhero films at once. Given the prominence of Waller in the comics and DC universe, though, her skill set would be perfect for a number of films currently on the DC slate. So let.s look at them, shall we? Our choices are: The Solo Batman Movie Justice League, Part One or Part Two Aquaman But why? Given Waller.s »
During a conversation with the New York Times, Suicide Squad star Viola Davis revealed that she's contracted for three DC Comics movies. The other two are more than likely the planned Justice League films, since a Suicide Squad sequel isn't on WB's slate of upcoming DC flicks, but that could change if SS is a big hit at the box office, and it's also possible her Amanda Waller...

Cyborg #2 picks up immediately with the aftermath of the disastrous battle that the Tekbreakers retreated from. Readers are left to wonder just where in the DC Universe they set up shop, but our brief catch up with what’s left of the Strike Team tells us some interesting details. If you remember the 8-Page preview for the title, Cyborg and the Justice League were attacked by the very same team of Tekbreakers and wound up “killing” Victor in battle for “Technology Purposes.” An ally of the Team, a blonde women (with some very Deus Ex glasses) in a hovering chair a la Professor Xavier scolds them for killing their only hope and dooming another universe lest the Technosapiens get their hands on the technology they hold.

Last week, The Death of Superman Lives director John Schnepp suggested George Miller was attached to direct Man of Steel 2. Further sources have since confirmed that Miller is in talks with DC over a prospective project, but it’s looking increasingly like it might not be a Superman sequel. Apparently Warner has Man of Steel 2 on “permanent hold“, which means it’s not a project they’re actively looking to produce in the immediate future.
Man of Steel 2 doesn’t exist on Warner’s current slate of DC releases, which carries all the way to 2020 with their reboot of Green Lantern. As a result, we maybe shouldn’t be super surprised to hear that Man of Steel 2 isn’t a priority. The 2013 original collected a sturdy $668 million worldwide, although the film proved divisive, and it’s been speculated Warner were actually hoping for a bigger return. »

Wizard World Chicago – the one of the largest comic book conventions in the U.S – welcomed Arrow star Stephen Amell to its stage last week and, during the question and answer session that followed, Amell addressed a number of points regarding both the fourth season of Arrow, and its implications for the wider DC universe.
Excitement among DC fans escalated recently when it was announced that Matt Ryan – star of the now cancelled Constantine series – would be reprising his role as the con-man-turned-occultist in at least one episode of Arrow. Onstage at Wizard World, Stephen Amell teased those scenes.
“I’ve been filming scenes all week long with Matt Ryan. He is such a treat. And a trip. He’s always saying his lines – and he’s getting ready to go on Broadway right now with Keira Knightley, so he’s always saying those lines too. I can’t tell »

Although Superman is maintaining a big screen presence in the near future with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and both Justice League films, the status of his solo series following 2013.s Man of Steel remains uncertain. During DC.s film slate announcement last October, Warner Bros did say that more solo Superman (and Batman) movies were being planned. Then last week, it was rumored that Mad Max: Fury Road George Miller has been tapped to direct Man of Steel 2. While that.s certainly an exciting prospect, it may be too early to start celebrating, as the movie may not even be a sure thing. Sources have told Den of Geek that Miller has indeed met with Warner Bros about directing a future DC movie. However, while one source said whatever he directs will depend on what story interest him, another source told them that as far as a »
Yes, we're all anxious for the Black Panther movie, as well as the Luke Cage TV series that's coming to Netflix. Also, Cyborg will be at the center of his own big screen movie adaptation. But what about the black women superheroes? Storm is probably the most mainstream right now, if only due to the X-Men movie franchise, as played by Halle Berry. But there are certainly others. For example, there's Vixen (alter-ego - Mari Jiwe McCab) - a female super-hero from the fictional African nation of Zambesi, whose superhero powers include using her Tantu Totem to channel the powers of animals in the animal kingdom, so she's able to mimic the abilities of any animal that has ever lived on Earth. Nice powers to have. Created by Gerry Conway and Bob Oksner, and first appearing in Action Comics #521, in 1981, Vixen has been a member of the Justice League, the Justice League International, »

With the DC You replacing the New 52, DC Comics is placing greater emphasis on storytelling instead of continuity. Meaning the events happening in Batman, Superman or Wonder Woman, don't have to painstakingly line up with what's happening in Justice League. This essentially frees up DC Comics writers and editors to tell stories how they see fit, without having to worry about what someone else is doing with their characters on another title. This format was actually how comics were published for a long, Long time. Continuity would often happen afterwards, as new writers and teams attempted to link seemingly separate events into a flowing narrative. Geoff Johns hints that something similar may be occurring with the DC You later on down the line, but for now, the team books and solo books are free to run independent of one another. So while Batman may have died and been miraculously resurrected »

Nathan Fillion may be best known for his roles on such TV shows as Firefly and Castle, but the actor has also been involved with numerous superhero-related projects over the past few years. Fillion, who is a sci-fi icon, has had comic book roles ranging from a prison inmate in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy to Green Lantern in animated Justice League movies. That’s why, during the Q&A portion of his Firefly panel at the 2015 Wizard World Comic Con Chicago, he was asked who he would play if he could choose from any DC or Marvel character.
In reply to the question, Fillion said, “I think I could take a pretty good crack at Booster Gold. That’s kind of my niche: show-offy, vain… I think I could handle that. Not too bright.”
Gold, who is a member of the Justice League, has a large list of powers, »

While not nearly as big as San Diego Comic-Con, The Chicago Wizard World Comic Con does respectable enough business and is known for pulling in some stellar talent. The convention has continued on throughout the weekend, where some choice rumors have flown forth. Among the many celebrity guests were Arrow star Stephen Amell, Star Trek legend William Shatner, and Firefly captain Nathan Fillion, just to name a few. And while you'll be hearing some more interesting news coming forth in the hours and days ahead, as journalists pick through their short interviews for news worthy tidbits, one of the coolest moments came when Nathan Fillion revealed which DC Comics superhero he desperately wants to play. And it sounds like a perfect fit.
Miller was behind the famed "Justice League: Mortal" project which saw its feet cut out from under it before it could go into production. Miller hopping onboard the two-part "Justice League" project would make him a glutton for punishment, but that's not the rumor. Instead the talk was that he might direct the direct sequel 2013's "Man of Steel".
Meet the Movie Press re-iterated the rumor earlier today in a vidcast and now Heroic Hollywood has added to the report.
The latter says Miller did visit the set of "Suicide Squad" and met producers for further talks about doing "Man of Steel 2" but the sticking point right now is budget which both sides aren't agreeing on. It's thought that this »

Thus far, DC have largely veered away from including post-credits scenes in their movies. Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy didn’t include any, and it was reportedly on his say that Man Of Steel didn’t either. Green Lantern did, but the less said about that one the better.
Now that they’re launching their new cinematic universe, or DC Extended Universe as they’re calling it, however, there’s a fresh range of films that are all going to be closely interlinked, and having post-credits scenes may now make sense.
It’s not that they are necessarily a vital part of a superhero film – in fact on the Marvel side of things there’s been as many misses as there has been hits – but when done right they can really build a huge amount of excitement for the upcoming films, and there’s the fact that audiences expect them. »

Ricky Church reviews Justice League #43…
“The Darkseid War” event rages on as Batman takes a dark journey into the depths of Godhood and unlocks the forbidden knowledge of the DC universe! Meanwhile, arch-enemies Superman and Lex Luthor must stand together in order to survive, and Wonder Woman leads the Justice League in an offensive against the Anti-Monitor and Darkseid! But what is Grail’s true mission during this war-—and what is the secret she holds over Wonder Woman?
The choice between the lesser of two evils has been one Geoff Johns loves to play off of in many of his stories. Since the beginning of Forever Evil and Lex Luthor’s inclusion in the Justice League, that has been a strong theme throughout DC’s flagship title. This theme jumps into high gear in Justice League #43 as the forces of Darkseid and the Anti-Monitor clash on Earth with most »

Back in May, we reported that filmmaker Ryan Unicomb is putting together a documentary that examines director George Miller's unmade 2008 superhero movie Justice League Mortal. The director has already secured private funding for the documentary, which is described as, "an unbiased account of the project's development, preproduction and cancellation, as well as the impact on the Australian film industry." We haven't heard anything about the project since then, and it seems there is one major obstacle standing in the filmmakers' way: Warner Bros. Pictures.
The director has contacted Warner Bros. Pictures, seeking permission to use their characters and images in the documentary, which is entitled Miller's Justice League Mortal. In an interview with If.com.au, Ryan Unicomb reveals that the whole project essentially hinges on Warner Bros.' approval. Here's what the filmmaker had to say, revealing that director George Miller and his producing partner Doug Mitchell are aware of his film. »
