Check out a preview of the issue here, featuring Superman confronting Brainiac…
Where do worlds go when they die?
The Earthquakes felt round the Multiverse, Superman’s lost days after “Doomed,” the World’s End – all these points will converge as the history of the Dcu is spun from a new perspective, the perspective of a mad god and his arrogant child. The biggest story in DC history ties into literally every DC story ever told – and it all begins here.
Kingdom Come, Red Son, Wild West Justice League, Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew – all the worlds you remember can still be found on Telos. Everything matters. Every story matters.

Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman's primary love interest and liason for the Justice League (in the New 52), will apparently be making his first appearance in Suicide Squad before showing up in 2017's Wonder Woman. Come inside for the full scoop!
While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to really kick off a more interconnected universe for DC's characters, the more we hear about Suicide Squad, the more it seems that film will be a big connector between all the other flicks. Suicide Squad is gearing up to shoot very soon, and as such, little details about the film and cast are starting to hit. The scoopers over on Latino Review are at it again, and have revealed the Scott Eastwood has been hired on to portray the character Steve Trevor in the upcoming film, before a more significant role in 2017's Wonder Woman.

According to Latino Review, Eastwood will cameo as Wonder Woman love interest Steve Trevor, in order to set up his appearance in the 2017 Wonder Woman film. In the comics, Trevor is an intelligence officer for the United States Army, who crashes his plane on Paradise Island during World War II and comes across the Amazons. There, he meets Princess Diana, who falls for him and returns with him to civilization, where she later becomes Wonder Woman.
In the New 52, Trevor is more of a liaison between the U.S. and Paradise Island, and tries to convince Amanda Waller that Wonder Woman isn’t dangerous. He then becomes the head of Argus and the Un’s ambassador to the Justice League. Judging by »

While Marvel took over the known world with its superhero blockbusters, their closest rival, DC, snuck in through the back door and quietly invaded our homes through the medium of television. Thanks largely to the impressive work of producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg, we’re now living in a golden age of TV shows based on superheroes. Comic book geeks have never had it so good… aside from that time Black Widow was all tied up at the beginning of The Avengers… and when Chris Evans frequently lost his clothes in Captain America: The First Avenger… and when – argh stop me now.
Within the space of just three TV seasons, the CW has introduced a number of established comic book characters through Arrow and The Flash, creating its own universe which will remain separate from its cinematic counterpart in the future. Fortunately, big plans are afoot for the “Arrowverse, »

Digital Spy spoke to The Rock during press rounds for Fast & Furious 7 to discuss the upcoming superhero film, and what made him choose to play villain Black Adam over the heroic Shazam.
Shazam will arrive in cinemas in April 2019, with Black Adam potentially cropping up in earlier DC-based film Justice League.
Fast & Furious 7 opens in cinemas worldwide on April 3. »
According to Latino-Review, they've learned that Scott Eastwood will make a cameo appearance as Steve Trevor in Suicide Squad. In "The New 52", he's part of A.R.G.U.S. and plays a key role in helping Wonder Woman acclimate to her new surroundings. They also have a brief romance which obviously didn't end particularly well what with Diana now being in a relationship with Superman! Regardless, Eastwood playing must be playing the character here in order to set up a bigger role in Wonder Woman, and you have to wonder just how much of a part both A.R.G.U.S. and Amanda Waller will play in that and Justice League. The site adds that Raymond Olubowale will have a minor role as a member of Waller's security team and that he'll also be providing motion capture in order to bring King Shark to life! What do you »
The CW Network has added yet another actor to its Arrow / Flash Spinoff cast, bringing aboard Doctor Who star Arthur Darvill to play DC Comics character Rip Hunter. We reported earlier this month that the spinoff will feature three characters from the DC Comics who have never been featured on a TV show before, with Rip Hunter being the second of these mystery roles to be cast. Here's the description of his character, previously known as "The Traveler," from this month's earlier report.
"Described as a "Han Solo-esque rogue who gets by with his charm, this hero hails from the future, and has journeyed back in time on a secret mission. His razor-sharp wit hides the pain of a man who has lived through serious conflict. He also harbors many secrets, always leaving both his teammates and the audience unsure of his true allegiances."

While a title has yet to be revealed for The CW’s upcoming Arrow/The Flash superhero team-up spin-off series, the project has just added its first brand new cast member. Deadline broke the news that Broadway star Ciara Renée (Pippin) has been cast as Kendra Saunders a.k.a. Hawkgirl, one of DC Comics’ most popular superheroes, in the spin-off series. In the spin-off, we will meet Kendra Saunders as a young woman who has recently learned that she has been repeatedly reincarnated over the centuries. She displays her ancient warrior persona when being provoked, which includes wings, and will earn her the superhero name “Hawkgirl.” While Hawkgirl has technically already appeared in several TV series (from live-action on Smallville with a guest spot to prominent roles in animated shows like Justice League: Unlimited), it seems that they might be walking around the “characters that have never appeared »
Rising star Ciara Renee has signed on to play Kendra Saunders, a.k.a. Hawkgirl in The CW's Arrow/Flash Spinoff. Earlier this month, we reported that the series will introduce three characters from the DC Comics who have never been seen on TV before. One of these characters was known as the "Female Warrior," described as, "a twentysomething Latina who is pretty but unassuming, book smart and socially awkward by day." The character becomes a "fierce warrior" by night, to the extent, "that sometimes she can become a threat to others." Hawkgirl was previously featured on Smallville and in the animated series Justice League, so this character might not be the "Female Warrior" in question. Though it should be noted that the Smallville version of the character was Kenrda's Aunt Shayera Hall.
Stars: Lucas Till, Stephen McHattie, John Pyper-Ferguson, Merritt Patterson, Jason Momoa, Janet-Laine Green, Melanie Scrofano, Adam Butcher, Philip Maurice Hayes, Miriam McDonald | Written and Directed by David Hayter
I, like many horror fans, know that the werewolf movie is the hardest of all the horror sub-genres to get right. For every American Werewolf in London, there’s an American Werewolf in Paris… But once in a while a movie comes along that successfully captures what makes the genre great. Wolves is one such movie.
Written and directed by David Hayter, who has penned such blockbuster films as X-Men and its sequel; and the film adaptation of Watchmen, Wolves tells the story of Cayden Richards. Your typical all-American jock, Cayden goes on the run following a vicious football incident and the murder of his parents – possibly at Cayden’s hands. You see Cayden is changing and not in your typical high-school teenager way. »

The superhero team-up show will blend recurring fan favorite characters from both shows along with three new DC superhero characters never seen on TV. Hawkgirl doesn't seem to quite fit into that latter group though as she has been portrayed on screen in both the animated "Justice League" series and in a guest starring spot on "Smallville".
In the new series, Saunders will be a young woman who is just beginning to learn that she has been repeatedly reincarnated over the centuries. When provoked, her ancient warrior persona manifests itself, along with wings that grow out of her back, earning her the moniker Hawkgirl.

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:

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, »
