DC Universe, the upcoming streaming service/comic book depository/fan hub platform dedicated to DC Comics’ best and brightest, already has a lot of very interesting reasons to tempt us to sign up. Now it’s adding another in the form of Batman: The Animated Series. But not just any version of this beloved classic: This…
This is what you might call corporate miscommunication.
Principle shooting has recently begun on Wonder Woman 1984, which means visuals are starting to trickle out. Here’s an exciting one for us, courtesy of Gal Gadot herself: Diana in her full costume, in all the glory and glitz of the 1980s.
Next time you make some fan art of your favorite actor playing an adaptation of a beloved character, just remember: there’s a possibility you could be helping that person land a job.
Outside of that one incredible moment in the ‘90s in which their universes were literally smushed together, DC and Marvel usually keep their houses in order and well away from each other. But recently, Marvel has been making some sneaky little trips into the reality of its fellow comics publisher.
It’s been eight months since Hurricane Maria obliterated Puerto Rico’s electrical grid and left 1.3 million people without power. Although the island is still in a very precarious situation today, there is also hope and belief in the resilience of the people who call it home—two of the most prominent recurring themes…
Warner Bros. has yet to release an official image of Zachary Levi as Shazam in Shazam!, but that didn’t stop the actor from giving fans a glimpse on his Instagram.
The Titans are facing their deadliest threat yet: being left out of a superhero box office boom. Good job they’ve got a certain mercenary they can be arch nemeses with to join in on the fun!
San Diego Comic-Con is just months away, which means that the Eisners—some of the most prestigious awards in comics—are close, too. The full list of nominees has been revealed today, and unsurprisingly, it’s jam-packed with some damn good comics for you to read (or re-read).
Batman Ninja is a gorgeous, almighty mess. Its frenetic incoherence is matched only by its desire to top itself again and again with vivid, striking imagery. I spent almost 90 minutes barely having a clue what was going on, but somehow despite that, also knew that I loved every goddamn second of it.
The next two films in the DC Extended Universe were well-represented at CinemaCon in Las Vegas Tuesday night. Footage from Aquaman, Shazam, and even a brief mention of Wonder Woman 2 kicked off a panel touting the upcoming films to exhibitors from across the world.
Clark Kent’s glasses acting as pretty much his first and last line of defense when it comes to revealing his secret identity has always been one of the silliest facets of the Man of Steel. But, at least in the eyes of legendary Superman comic writer John Byrne, one incarnation of Supes did it right.
Warner Bros.’ DC comics movie announcements are getting crazy.
Warner Bros.’ plans for the DC Extended Universe are still... how should we put it... in flux, at least one film is moving forward: Birds of Prey, starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, which the studio has selected indie filmmaker Cathy Yan to direct.
It’s easy to understand why fans of the Arrowverse want to see the CW’s newest team of live-action DC superheroes team up with Teams Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. But sorry, folks, because the fact of the matter is that Black Lightning is really, really, really set in its own universe.
Despite the fact that they all come from worlds where teams of superheroes save the multiverse on a daily basis, most of the heroes in comic books balk when they realize that their only hope of surviving the arcs of their own stories is—wait for it—working with other people.
In the winter of 1988, thousands of people across the country voted to decide whether Jason Todd, the second Robin, would live or die in an upcoming issue of Batman. Some 5,271 people wanted Jason to survive the Joker’s brutal assault and torture; 5,343 did not. You do the math.
Doomsday Clock is the slowest of slow burns. Its biggest mysteries—like just where Dr. Manhattan is in the DC Universe, or how the hell a mime can mime himself a lethal weapon—still remain barely explored, let alone solved. But it’s finally started to lift the lid on one of its most intriguing additions: the new…
Whoever would have thought that Harleen Quinzel, everyone’s favorite well-adjusted psychiatrist from Gotham City, would one day find herself jetting off into space to rendezvous with the Apokoliptian New Gods who’ve caused the Justice League so much trouble over the years? DC Comics is setting Harley off on a very…
One of the most fascinating things about Black Lightning is how it’s managed to keep itself fairly grounded and restrained in moments where many of the CW’s other shows tend to err on the more fantastical side.
