Superman: Black Dawn’s Big Bad May Have Just Been Spoiled

Although the “Black Dawn” story arc currently unfolding in the pages of Superman may not be as strong as previous offerings, we can probably all agree that it’s still a decent read and that the creative team of Peter J. Tomasi, Pat Gleason and Doug Mahnke haven’t really steered us wrong since taking the wheel at the start of Rebirth.

If you’ve been keeping up with the title, you’re well aware that the Kent family’s neighbor who looks an awful lot like Wilford Brimley isn’t exactly what he seems to be and has so far succeeded in getting the drop on Batman and Superman alike. And from what we can tell, a mysterious force is pulling the strings of both him and the townsfolk.

Now, when the “Black Dawn” finale, Superman #25, was originally solicited, a cover didn’t accompany it, but here’s what

Superman #21 Review

This review contains minor spoilers.

With several other titles dealing with the aftermath of “Superman Reborn,” Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason’s Superman attempts something different. The writers decided to include Batman and Robin in this arc titled “Black Dawn” and explore family ties. It’s an all-star cast and there’s a lot to get excited about here, but is it a good idea to turn this title into the Jon Kent show?

Batman has gone missing, so Clark, Jon, and Damian head out to find him. As they search for the Bat, they come across the giant squid from way back in issue #2. Supes tells the kids to stay put and does his best to protect the bystanders from the ocean monster. When it breaks free, however, Jon uses his heat vision on the creature. The crowd cheers for Superboy, but his father is not too pleased

Superman #20 Review

This review contains minor spoilers.

After Action Comics #976, everything is now right in Clark Kent’s world. He and his family are whole again and all the missing gaps are filled. Ha, you really believed that, didn’t you? Put on your detective glasses because Superman #20 introduces a brand-new mystery to solve: Jon Kent’s developing powers (or lack thereof).

Chapter one of “Black Dawn” begins back in Hamilton County with the Kent family. They appear happy, living like a normal family – even if ‘normal’ is Superman flying over the farmlands. One evening, Batman and Robin arrive unexpectedly, interrupting their peace. The Dark Knight tells Clark that the tests he conducted on Jon have come back inconclusive. While the boy appears biologically healthy, something is holding his powers back from fully developing.

According to Bruce, Jon should be even more powerful than his father. He believes that there are environmental

The Frightening Truth About Steven Seagal's Career

Yet, here at Dread Central we've been known to cover the world of the bizarre and the paranormal. You're about to learn something about Seagal that is beyond bizarre...

Did you ever notice the strangest thing about Seagal movie titles is that they tell a story in order of their release? No? Check IMDb if you don't believe. Sit back, dear reader, and allow me to take you on a strange trip filled with action, madmen, and revenge.

Steven Seagal’s Force of Execution Hits Home Video in Time for the Holidays

Nothing screams the holidays quite like Steven Seagal phoning in a performance. And while I’m not suggesting that’s the case with “Force of Execution,” the odds are definitely not on his side. Sorry, big guy. I’ve seen “Black Dawn,” “Out of Reach,” and “Out for a Kill” a little under a dozen times each. I know your game inside and out. Written by Richard Beattie and Michael Black and directed by Keoni Waxman, “Force of Execution” finds Seagal portraying a mob boss who eventually squares off against another gangster. At least he’s not playing a former military type who’s out to save the world this time around. That alone is worth a look, I suppose. Here’s how Anchor Bay describes the flick: Steven Seagal stars as mob kingpin Mr. Alexander, an old-school boss who rules his criminal empire with both nobility and brutality. But

October Spotlight: Author Joseph D'Lacey Talks Meat, Garbage Man and More!

With his debut novel, Meat, Joseph D'Lacey burst onto the horror scene with a novel that prompted Stephen King to exclaim, "D'Lacey rocks!" We recently got to sit down with Joseph to talk about his career and the return of both Meat and Garbage Man via a brand new publisher.

The first pertinent question for any professional wordsmith is exactly what got them into pursing creative endeavours for a living. For D'Lacey, the love for writing had always been there, but took time to fully blossom.

He mused, "I think I've always had a writer's nature, I suppose, and the thing for me was that I didn't really pursue it until later in life. I was probably around thirty, really, before it got started. I'd always been a diarist, a journalist and written poetry and all those sort of things, but I didn't really turn my hand to fiction until probably when I was thirty,

Tonight's MovieMovie: The Foreigner Starring Steven Seagal

  • ReelzChannel
A mysterious package. A variety of interested parties. And only one man stands in their way.

After enjoying a few action movie hits at the box office, Steven Seagal started appearing in a string of straight-to-video action flicks after 2003's Half Past Dead was panned by critics and mostly ignored at the box office. The movies kept Seagal working and his fanbase (mostly) satisfied, and started with 2003's The Foreigner.

Seagal stars as Jonathan Cold, a former deep cover agent, or "foreigner," who now works freelance delivering high-risk packages. When Jonathan is hired to take a mysterious package from France to Germany, he soon learns that there is a swarm of different factions that want to get their hands on it. Shot entirely in Poland, The Foreigner is one of the few of Seagal's "strictly home entertainment"-era movies to get a sequel — 2005's Black Dawn.

2-minute preview released for "Black Dawn" (Gaiji Keisatsu)

A 2-minute preview of Kentaro Horikirizono’s Black Dawn has been released. In contrast to typical movie trailers that play like compressed versions of the movie, this is basically the kind of promo you’d normally see featured on a morning variety show, giving a fully narrated run-down of the story and characters.

The movie follows up a 2009 Nhk drama and features an original story. Atsuro Watabe stars as Sumimoto, a member of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police’s elite foreign affairs division who’s dubbed the “demon of public safety” for his willingness to employ questionable tactics to get the job done.

When confidential nuclear documents are stolen from a university in the chaos following the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and an amount of enriched uranium goes missing in the Korean peninsula, Sumimoto and Matsuzawa (Machiko Ono) begin surveillance of a civilian named Kaori (Yoko Maki), the wife of a company president

Trailer for Kentaro Horikirizono's "Black Dawn" (Gaiji Keisatsu)

The official website for Kentaro Horikirizono’s Black Dawn has been updated with an HD embed of the movie’s new trailer. It was previously streamed exclusively on Yahoo! Japan.

The movie follows up the 2009 Nhk drama “Gaiji Keisatsu” and features an original screenplay inspired by Iku Aso’s original novel of the same name.

The story is set after the Tohoku Earthquake of March 11, 2011. During the turmoil and confusion that followed, sensitive data on nuclear components was stolen from a major university facility in the affected area.

Sumimoto (Atsuro Watabe), a member of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police’s elite foreign affairs/anti-terrorism division, is tailing a woman named Kaori (Yoko Maki), the wife of a company president (Kang-woo Kim) who has been involved in illegal foreign exports and is suspected of being a Korean spy. Sumimoto takes Kaori into custody for collaboration and eventually enlists her help to uncover

AMC’s The Walking Dead Prequel Series Feasts on YouTube

Everything dies. Except when they don’t stay that way. Starting off in a suburbian set piece that could operate as a proper clone of the Dawn of the Dead 2004 remake, The Walking Dead companion web series Torn Apart opens on a mother waking up in her car after hitting a tree, with her children who were in the backseat missing. Much of what made The Walking Dead such a visual masterpiece in a medium not known for it remains here. The art design leaves behind the haunting images of life and civilization that only hours ago had been operating as normal. The zombies themselves show no difference from that of the TV series – which is to say, quite frightening and gross. It shouldn’t be a surprise, as the director and one of the story writers Greg Nicotero is the key special effects makeup supervisor for the series. The

‘Black Dawn’ Conspiracy Fuels ‘Catalyst’ Prequel just keeps making The Black Dawn more and more compelling. We first covered The Black Dawn when the show premiered in February. Then, we were wowed by the production values, the performances, and the supplementary "integrated content" - in-character video blogs, director's commentary clips, and even an online comic that all served to deepen the world of The Black Dawn. Produced and directed by Joshua Sikora, Catalyst focuses on the story of Dr. Steven Wilkins (Skip Pipo), a character who was killed in the initial moments of The Black Dawn but has recently caught viewers' interest after one of the characters discovered that he had a list of all the names of the survivors in his office.
