When Batman Vs Superman announced it was being delayed a full year to allow for additional lead time on the production, many speculated that it could have to do with the potential Justice League movie that has been in the works. Whatever the reason was, moving the release to May 6, 2016 also put the film directly against an untitled Marvel film slated to release that same weekend. For months now we have heard nothing as the studios have played chicken with the release date and now we may »

Ever since it was announced that Batman vs Superman- the tentative title for WB/DC’s sequel to Man of Steel- was moved to May 6, 2016, all eyes have been on Marvel. See, Marvel announced long ago that May 6 of that year was when the studio was going to launch the first of its Phase Three films. They never announced what the film would be, but they made claim to that date. Then months later, amid reports that Warner Bros was making adjustments to its DC plans (including my exclusive assertion from someone in-the-know that Batman vs Superman / Jla would now be filming back-to-back), they announced they’d be co-habitating May 6.
IGN had the chance to ask Marvel honcho Kevin Feige, point blank, if the Avengers studio was going to shift the release of its first Phase Three movie. He started with this opening line: “The more the merrier.” He then continued, »

(Cbr) While fans look to the big screen for the next super hero blockbuster, it should not be forgotten that Warner Bros. Animation has been producing amazing feature-length films starring DC Comics' pantheon of characters since 2007. Recently, WB Animation announced that their upcoming animated features will be focused on Batman, Superman and the Justice League, with one film per year going outside the boundary of those three immortal franchises. With nine decades of stories for WB to mine, Cbr enters the DC archives to figure out which stories from their library could best make use of the studio's animators and knack for spot-on voice acting. While it's impossible to narrow down It's a difficult task to cull nearly a century of stories down to a manageable number, but we've emerged with the ones that best embody the characters and storytelling that have made DC an industry leader throughout its history. »

Late last month, The CW released the first official image of Grant Gustin as The Flash as filming on the pilot began. However, as the image showed him both only from the neck up and from the side, the majority of fans were still anxious to feel the suit in its entirety. Well, consider that wish now granted!
As you can see, a full shot of the iconic DC superhero in the Arrow spin-off has now been unveiled, albeit with a not so impressive lightning effect in the background. Other than that, it’s hard to find any real faults with the look they’ve created. It’s interesting though that he’s not quite as red as his comic book counterpart, a sign perhaps that Warner Bros. want a way for fans to distinguish this version of the character from the one they apparently intend to introduce in Batman Vs. Superman and Justice League! »

Batman, Spider-Man, Superman, Hulk, etc. – sure, they’re classic superheroes, among the best even, but while Marvel and DC hold a near-monopoly on superhero comics, there are more out there than just the Avengers and the Justice League. After all, neither company invented the idea of the superhero, they just happen to have some of the best known superheroes in the world.
There are other superhero characters who are just as compelling – maybe more so – than their more famous counterparts, with intriguing origin stories, unique powers, and who live in fascinating worlds, which readers of Green Lantern or Thor would also love.
This isn’t an article on “who’s the most powerful”. “Great” in this sense describes the personalities and traits that make up the characters themselves, what qualities make them beloved of readers, and why they stand out from hundreds of other characters as unique.

These Justice League-inspired Red Bull cans don't actually exist, but maybe one day they will. They definitely look awesome! The designs were created by Diego Fonseca, a New York-based art director, and he calls the concept "The Red Bull Superheroes Project."
"The Red Bull Superheroes Project depicts a playful union between the Austrian energy drink and the Justice League universe…. Inspired by the uniforms of his favorite superheroes from various ages of the comic books."
If Red Bull actually took this idea and ran with it I bet their sales would take a huge jump. I'd probably even start drinking Red Bull again! Can designs sell.

The Batman: Arkham franchise is coming to a close – at least that’s what Warner Bros wants us to believe.
Today, Warner Bros Interactive and Rocksteady Studios announced that Batman: Arkham Knight will be the final chapter in the Arkham series. Of course, just like Halo or Mass Effect, all that means is that this round of the series is coming to a close and the story will most likely continue on in some other form.
In today’s gaming climate, franchises rule development dollars. This is like when Jay-z says he is going to retire and announces a final album, then hits you with two or three more records. So don’t think this is the end of Batman. You don’t just drop a breadwinner, especially one that you’ve been releasing year-after-year like Madden.
As far as Batman gaming goes, it will be nice to see what »

Frozen has just won Best Animation and Best Original Song (for Let It Go) at the Oscars, as well as crossing the $1 billion mark at the global box office ($388.7 million domestic and $611.5 million international). It's Disney's seventh film to cross the $1bn mark, and the second highest-grossing animated film of all time, after Toy Story 3's $1.06 billion.
Frozen is an awesome movie regardless, but it's nice that the film is getting the commercial success and critical plaudits it deserves. It's enough to give you a warm fuzzy feeling inside, whether you're a snowman or not. Some movies are worth melting for. Just maybe not right this minute...
Out of the animated films released last year, Frozen is a worthy winner, but so would have been Despicable Me 2, and The Croods isn't far off in terms of quality. The aptly-titled Epic would also have been a worthy winner, but didn't even receive a nomination, »

Let’s face it, every single character in every movie you’ve ever seen has to have a weakness, because that’s just the way the world works. There would be no sense of danger and intrigue in any character who is simply undefeatable. For example, the reason why yours truly is never particularly excited for a new Superman movie is because there is literally no point in anyone attacking him unless they’re armed with a piece of rock from his now destroyed home planet.
That is why a Justice League movie is doomed to fail, as surely there a few obstacles in the movie world which the likes of Batman can achieve that Superman couldn’t manage without even thinking about it. Aside from say, doing his paperwork, there is almost no reason for Superman to have a team of super chums by his side, »

Last year Jeff Lemire announced that he had created a new character for his new Justice League United series - a teenage Cree girl from James Bay based, in part, on late activist Shannen Koostachin. This character was absent from the first Justice League United #1 cover by Gene Ha, but here she is on the new version of that cover which was taken from a Previews Magazine. Thanks to DC Women Kicking Ass for the spot. A bit of diversity is always welcome..but a name would be nice! Anyway, whatever we'll end up callng her, she'll be joining the likes of Martian Manhunter, Adam Strange, Stargirl, Supergirl, Green Arrow and Animal Man (with more Tba) in the new series which will replace Justice League of America after it finishes up in April. »
It’s a good day to be a fan of The Flash, as the showrunners preparing the scarlet speeder for his sprint onto the small screen have released another juicy detail. The series adapting one of DC Comics’ most beloved Justice League member has found its leading man in Glee alum Grant Gustin, and for the first time fans can get a look at the suit he’ll be donning in the role of Barry Allen a.k.a. The Flash.
The series has been spawned by a guest appearance on The CW’s Arrow, a gritty, grounded, but somewhat heightened approach to real world superheroes, but despite that, Gustin had promised a traditional take on the red and yellow suit. ...

Back in 1991, Kevin Conroy landed the role of The Dark Knight for the classic Batman: The Animated Series, and while Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale have all hung up the cape and cowl since, he's still lending his voice to the role of the Caped Crusader in Warner's DC Universe Animated Original Movies line, not to mention the hugely popular Arkham video games. During a recent interview (via Cbm), Conroy has spoken about his time as Batman, during which he's established himself as the voice of Gotham's Dark Knight Detective:
"I had absolutely no expectation that this job would turn into what it became. I started recording it in 1991, and it went on the air on Fox in 1992 as a prime time series. Then over 23 years, it just evolved from Batman: The Animated Series to The Adventures of Batman and Robin to Justice League and then Batman Beyond. »

When Marvel announced it was making The Avengers and planned to release it in 2012 all comic book movie fans wondered what the plot would be. Turns out all they had to do was look back to an animated origins story from 2006. In that version an alien race called the Chitauri invaded Earth and forced a group of bickering heroes to work together in order to save the day. Sound familiar?
With announcements from Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder that the Man Of Steel sequel would feature Batman and Wonder Woman all comic book movie fans have been salivating at the prospect of a live action Justice League film coming soon and speculating what the plot would be.

In Hollywood, it seems as though everyone is talking, all the time. Inevitably, a lot of it is just noise and carries little meaning, but once in a while, if you really pay attention, someone seems to let something slip that is very important indeed. This week, it looks like that someone is writer/director Drew Pearce, and that something is Joss Whedon’s involvement with The Avengers 3.
If Marvel were a big city law firm, Drew Pearce would be a talented, up-and-coming associate, while Joss Whedon would be a full partner with an enormous corner office. As Whedon delivered the unprecedented behemoth that was 2012’s The Avengers, Pearce wrote the screenplay for 2013’s Iron Man 3 with the director of that film, Shane Black. He has also written and directed his first ‘Marvel One Shot’ – short films that exist within the Marvel narrative – All Hail The King.

The everlasting battle of Avengers vs Justice League is one that will never end. While we may have seen the battle unfold in the comics, it is unlikely we will ever see it in any other media (offically). Well, thanks to modding, we can see the two duke it out in a basketball game (still cool, right?). The Justice League’s starting lineup has Batman and Superman as guards, the Flash and Green Lantern as forwards, and Cyborg as center. The Avengers have Thor and Captain America as guards, Spider-Man and Iron Man as forwards, and the Hulk as Center. Based on the given lineups, which team would you chose? Sound off below! »
A few weeks ago I wrote an article outlining the four ways DC could use a second-tier character like Booster Gold to capture the same success Marvel Studios found with Iron Man (who, before becoming the box office juggernaut he is now, was a second-tier character himself). As DC and Warner Bros. slowly move forward with crafting a shared movie universe of their own, they’ll have to decide which characters to bring to life, and though we can easily guess which Justice League staples will undoubtedly appear on screen (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, Green Lantern), I’d like to take a look at the less-conventional choices.
Hawkman is one such choice, a character that has been around for a long time but seems to be a bit of a joke in the minds of casual audiences who may not be familiar with what makes him such a great character. »

I'm not a regular reader of Justice League Dark. It's not that I don't like John Constantine or any of the other characters involved in the monthly title. Frankly, I just don't have time to spare to pick up another book to read on a regular basis. DC Comics once again found a way to lure me in. As I flipped through Justice League Dark Volume 3: The Death of Magic, I was bombarded with pages full of Swamp Thing and other creatures in his form.
Justice League Dark Volume 3: The Death of Magic compiles issues 14 through 21 of the monthly series. The graphic novel is split up into two story arcs entitled "The Death of Magic" and "Horror City." An introduction chapter entitled "Enter the House of Mystery" sets everything in motion.
"The Death of Magic" takes Tim Hunter and Zatanna into another dimension through the Books of Magic. »

When it comes to superhero movie news, Warner Bros. has taken a back seat to Marvel Studios, 20th Century Fox and Sony this past week, but with a lull in Batman vs. Superman headlines, Latino-Review has thrown up another casting rumour for the Man of Steel sequel, claiming that the studio is looking to add another DC superhero to the ever-expanding roster of the follow-up to last year's Superman reboot.
According to the site, WB is looking to cast a young and physically fit black actor in his early 20s for a small role in Batman vs. Superman, with a view to appearing in multiple future DC movies (the obvious candidate here would be Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg). The report goes on to claim that Snyder has met with Michael B. Jordan about the role, but with Jordan set to play The Human Torch in The Fantastic Four, »
