We’re still several months away from meeting our newest big screen Batman, but rumors are already surfacing about what Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight may be up to in his first solo outing. The good news is that these newest rumors happen to pretty plausible.
It’s been rumored for a while, but now Warner Bros. has finally

Thanks to the straight-to-home video Flashpoint movie, the new animated universe based on DC's New 52 relaunch is officially here. The first movie in this brand-new DCAU? Justice League: War, based on the first six issues of the Justice League comic by Geoff Johns — here's the trailer.
Justice League #22 comes out today, featuring the very beginning of DC's summer mega-event "Trinity War" (not to be confused with all those previously released "Prelude to Trinity War" issues).

Yes, after being in charge of Green Lantern for nearly a decade, revitalizing the title, and adding more to the DC universe mythos than anybody besides Jack Kirby, Geoff Johns has penned his final issue. Plus Godzilla, sex, a sword-wielding Little Red Riding Hood and more, all in this week’s comics!
Chief Creative Officer and comics writer extraordinaire Geoff Johns doesn't just write comics; he has also written TV episodes for shows based on comics. In fact, he's penned tonight's episode of the hit CW series Arrow, "Dead to Rights," in which Ollie must keep his mom from assassinating his best friend's dad as an…
Yesterday, a man retired. He is a man who has been idolized by many, and hated by others. This man was elected by men to rule a universe, to decide good and evil, right from wrong, and to guide his children in the light. I'm speaking, of course, of long-time Green Lantern writer Geoff Johns. What, did someone else…
Check out a brand new preview from Red Lanterns #16, where Atrocitus recruits the most surprising army possible to fight a brand new galactic threat.

Green Lantern is quite possibly the most fiendishly complicated of all the superheroes, surrounded by cosmic mythology, strange aliens, and convoluted backstory. But let us help you through the insanity with this beginner's guide to all things Green Lantern.
io9 recently caught up with DC Comics architect Geoff Johns to discuss Flashpoint, the publisher's big summer series starring the Flash, a screwed-up timeline, and a truckload of weirdo superheroes saving the world.
Yesterday's episode of Smallville, "Booster," introduced stalwart DC heroes Booster Gold and Blue Beetle to the show's universe. Even though this episode added doodly-squat to Smallville's end game, Booster Gold's celebrity superheroics and unapologetic campiness were a good fit for Smallville.
In tomorrow's new comics, the God of Fear rises to wage war on the entire Marvel universe, Hellboy travels back to the 1970s, Batman faces two of the DC universe's heaviest hitters, and a classic John Constantine story returns.
This summer, DC kicks off Flashpoint, a line-wide alternate reality tale with The Flash at the center. We recently caught up Flash artist Francis Manapul and asked him what it's like to draw the Scarlet Speedster and what we can anticipate from DC's next big story.
