[April Fools’ Day] The Walking Dead Kids! Saturday Morning Cartoon Series Revealed

  • DailyDead
Adding some living dead humor to April Fools' Day, Skybound has revealed a mock cartoon series, The Walking Dead Kids!, which is "teased" in a new promo featuring familiar characters from Robert Kirkman's comic book series, including Carl, Rick, Michonne, and Andrea, as well as Clementine from Telltale's The Walking Dead video games and a zombified twist on Krypto the Superdog: Zed the Undead Canine.

Revealed by our friends over at TheWalkingDead.com and featuring subtitle narration that offers insights into the April Fools' Day joke, The Walking Dead Kids! was created for the (once again, mock) AMChildren Saturday morning schedule, a "new initiative" from AMC. Cartoonist Howie Noel drew the character of The Walking Dead Kids!, giving us an awesome retro take on the zombie-slaying characters, as they look like they could follow in the footsteps of the Harlem Globetrotters and guest star on an installment of The New Scooby-Doo Movies.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Release Date Changed

Warner Bros.

Looks like DC have blinked first in their game of chicken against Marvel. As expected, to be honest, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice has had its release date brought back from May 6, 2016 to March 25 of the same year, in order to stop in clashing with the third Captain America film. It’ll now go head-to-head with Brett Ratner’s Beverly Hill Cops reboot/sequel/remake/whatever, which we’re pretty sure the combined might of the World’s Finest superheroes can deal with.

Taking another leaf out of Marvel’s book, Warner Bros have also gone and announced the release dates for nine DC superhero movies, running all the way up until 2020. Which is ambitious, considering Batman V Superman will only be the second entry in the “shared universe” they’re looking to build up to rival the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course they’ve not actually

CultBox, MovieFarm and Blogomatic3000 review Holy Franchise, Batman!

Holy Franchise, Batman! Bringing the Caped Crusader to the Screen was released this past Friday, and a few new reviews have popped up over the weekend...

First up is a review from Rob Smedley of CultBox; here's an extract:

"Holy Franchise, Batman! makes the bold claim of being 'the Caped Crusader fan's bible', and lives up to its assertion. Charting every one of the Dark Knight's appearances on film and TV (and we do mean every one – apparently he even turned up in the cartoon Krypto the Superdog), author Gary Collinson is a man who seems to know Batman better than Alfred the butler does... Whether you're a die-hard fan of the Caped Crusader or an enthusiastic sidekick looking to further their Dark Knight knowledge, the wealth of information here means you'd have to be some kind of joker not to consider picking this up."

Snow White and the Huntsman dwarfs the original fairy story

There's a glimpse of an apple and seven dwarfs in the trailer for this big screen re-imagining of the Snow White story, but most of it is Charlize Theron looking unquestionably evil

This year's Red Riding Hood set a bold new template for contemporary fairytale reworkings, by ignoring most of what people liked about the original and making the rest of it all insufferable and Twilighty. It's a formula that next summer's Snow White and the Huntsman would do well to stick to.

Luckily, a Snow White and the Huntsman trailer has already emerged online, meaning that we're incredibly well placed to judge it. So what parts of the original Snow White story does Snow White and the Huntsman retain? And how does it differ? Let's comb through the trailer for clues ...

1) It would appear that there's still an evil queen in Snow White and the Huntsman, played by Charlize Theron.

Man of Steel Set Pics Part 2: Henry Cavill Is Bearded And Looks Troubled On Set

  • HeyUGuys
More photos from the set of Zack Synder’s Superman: Man of Steel have appeared online, but unlike many of the most recent images that have featured Henry Cavill in full costume as the Last Son of Krypton, this latest batch show him as Clark Kent, albeit looking somewhat apprehensive and considerably more beardy than we’ve come to expect from the usually mild-mannered, clean-cut character.

From what we can gather by these photos, it seems as if Clark has fallen on hard times; aside from his beard, he’s wearing worn, shapeless clothes and to make matters worse it’s raining on him. Yes, it seems even super-powered Kryptonians have bad days.

Still, it does look like he’s found a new friend to help him through his darkest days – a dog can be seen on set with Cavill in one of the pictures. No word yet as to

Superman's team-up with Muslim hero cancelled
Superman's planned team-up with a Muslim superhero has been cancelled at the last minute. As part of the 'Grounded' storyline, the Man of Steel was originally intended to fight alongside the new character Sharif in Superman #712, which was released this week. Instead, the issue contained a story about Krypto the Superdog that was originally created by Kurt Busiek and Rick Leonardi during Busiek's 2007 run, but never saw print. "DC Comics determined that the previously solicited story did not work within the 'Grounded' storyline," said the publisher in its newsletter to retailers on Tuesday night. "However, Chris Roberson will be back for the final two issues of Superman's year long walk across America." Roberson has expressed his disappointment (more)
