Independence Day 3 may already be on the way. Deadpool 2 is definitely on the way. How the Flash messing up the timeline in his TV show has made one actor’s return very confusing. And the Suicide Squad movie receives its own bad theme song. Spoilers, yo!
Rumors abound that DC Comics’ new “Rebirth” project will reboot its comics continuity yet again, and put an end to the “New 52" era that began in 2011.

It’s been a remarkable year for comics. Huge publishers like DC and Marvel have rejuvenated their line-ups with tons of amazing books; beyond the big two, there’s been some of the most compelling, challenging material in the industry we’ve seen in years.

It’s not been a good day for DC Comics. Earlier this morning, the company announced that it was down over $2 million in its total revenue and expenditure for the last financial year.

I’ve been waiting a long time to play as Batgirl in a modern video game. Now the chance has arrived in the form of a new add-on for the latest Batman title. Is it what I wanted? Not really.
When Yvonne Craig made her debut as Batgirl for the third season of Batman, she dazzled the streets of Gotham in a ridiculously glitzy Batsuit. Now that we’re finally getting merchandise based on the classic show, Batgirl is heading to the toyshelf at last—and she’s as wonderfully glitter-laden as ever.
Batgirl's radical tone change (and snazzy new outfit) under the creative direction of Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher and Babs Tarr has made Batgirl one of DC's most popular ongoing comics. Apparently however, the change wasn't expected to catch on — DC only planned for it to last six issues.
Batgirl has been in the media for all the wrong reasons recently — but this is nothing new. The iconic heroine has long been a source of controversy for DC, thanks to a series of strange decisions. Here's the story of DC's Batgirls, and the controversies that have come to define them.
Hello, my friends and potential food source. Spring is dawning here in the post-apocalypse, with its requisite rain showers, blooming flowers, and of course, the cannibal horselords of Old Sante Fe. Now who wants to talk about how incredibly awful that Joker variant cover of Batgirl #41 is? I sure do!
La polémica se desató en torno a la portada #41 del cómic Batgirl, en la que aparece The Joker en un tono bastante agresivo, lo que ha inició una especie de batalla en las redes sociales y como consecuencia la portada ha sido retirada. Para ti, ¿es ofensiva esta portada?http://es.gizmodo.com/10-clasicos-im…
So recently, there's been a kerfuffle over the "Joker Variant" cover of Batgirl #41. DC has been doing monthly variants for most of its comics and this month, the theme was the Joker.

It's time for the annual Batgirl/Supergirl Christmas comic by Mike Maihack. These comics are always adorable, and this time is no exception. And there's a surprise cameo!
Well, this is just about a perfect case of two great tastes tasting great together - Cosplayer Emberphantom mashed up the smart new style of the latest Batgirl design by Babs Tarr with the colour scheme of her outfit from The New Batman Adventures animated series into one brilliant Cosplay!
DC Collectibles débuted their new line of figures based on the fan favourite Batman: The Animated Series earlier this year, but the series is about to get a whole lot cooler - Animated Batgirl is coming!
Kinda-sorta news: It's part of DC's Black and White range, so it's not as bright and bold as Babs Tarr's glorious art for the ongoing adventures of Barbara Gordon, but hooray for new Batgirl design merch nonetheless!
When Marvel announced that its next round of movies would include a Captain Marvel movie, we were thrilled. Yes, a major Marvel movie featuring a popular and wonderful female superhero. But amidst that celebration, let's not forget there are still tons of worthy female superheroes who would make excellent movie stars.
Another day, another expensive bit of beauty from the world of nerdy Merchandise to look at - and Sideshow's new 'Premium Format' Batgirl Statue is definitely one worth taking a look at, as it's absolutely fantastic.
