I got a bunch of big questions this week: What’s next for Star Wars after Episode IX? Why has The Flash TV series gotten so dumb? And what happens when someone points out the Avengers are also probably murderers? Big answers to follow!
Ah, summer. The perfect time to think about going outside, getting some sun, enjoying all nature has to offer—and then staying inside to read comics anyway. Happily, this summer’s titles will definitely keep you both occupied and entertained! Here’s io9's guide to all the fantastic new series coming out over the new…
One of the absolute highlights of Batman v Superman was Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. She was almost literally a ray of light and color in a dark grey world. And now, you can see her best moment, which also happens to be the best moment of the movie. (The video is kind of a spoiler, if you haven’t seen the trailers.)
We at io9 tend to cover a lot of comic book news, but there are a lot of smaller titles that, while not making headline news, are absolutely worth checking out (and then telling all your friends about how awesome they are). Here are just some of the criminally underappreciated series out right now that you should be…
In what should honestly not be a surprise to anyone who saw Batman v Superman, it turns out that Batman’s youthful sidekick Robin was also someone who preferred murdering criminals as opposed to sending them through that pesky justice system.
There’s big changes coming to Superman in DC’s Rebirth event. First off, he’s dying. Then he’s being replaced by, err, well, the old Superman (it’s a long story). But it also seems on his way out Superman’s powers will be split among a whole host of people—and one of them is a young man from Shanghai.
We’ve known that there’s a Superwoman series coming in DC’s Rebirth shakeup ever since it announced its comics lineup at Wondercon last month. But now we know who the (obvious) choice is to be the new Woman of Steel—and her ascent to the position has some intriguing hints about Superman’s fate.
Superman’s had a rough time in his comics lately: his most recent problem being that he’s about to die (for real!). As we await Superman’s impending death, now is a great time to look back and see how DC marked the passing of the Man of Steel the last time it happened—in one of the biggest events in comics history.
Superman is in for some pretty major changes in DC’s Rebirth event—and with all those changes, he’s getting a new supersuit. Appropriately, given the circumstances Kal-El finds himself in, it does a grand job blending classic the Superman design with the current suit. It’s certainly better than a t-shirt and pants!
The MTV Movie Awards are busy tonight, with a new trailer from Suicide Squad, and it shows that the villain film has some serious Superman undertones to it.
The Wonder Woman movie is arriving a little sooner than expected. Maisie Williams says the next season of Game of Thrones sets up the show’s ending. Plus, the first set pictures from The Mummy, the return of Sherlock, and pictures from the second season premiere of Outlander. To me, my Spoilers!
The Flash crew will meet their first Arrow character on Earth-2 in the show’s penultimate episode. Katie Cassidy, who plays Laurel Lance/Black Canary, will guest star as her Earth-2 doppleganger who goes by the moniker Black Siren; whether she’s a hero or a villain is yet to be determined.
Ever since DC unveiled its line-up for Rebirth, we’ve had some questions about why the classic Superman of the old DC universe will replace New 52 Superman in the comics. Well, today’s Superman #51 has answers... and things aren’t looking too good for New 52 universe’s version of Clark Kent.
In a few months, everything changes for the DC comics universe again... kind of. All the talk of DC Rebirth lately might have you a bit unsure of what’s ahead for Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, and friends in the near future, but don’t worry! We’re here to explain exactly what’s going on.
Although we recently got our first good look at the Wonder Woman film’s Amazon aesthetic, many fans were a bit disappointed at the Amazon’s fanciful, heel-clad battle gear. They’re still wearing it in these new set pictures, but hey, but now they’re definitely showing off their warrior skills!
Lest there be a single type of entertainment which didn’t have a superhero option, DC has teamed up with Random House to create a series of young adult novels.
