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. Although the current DC universe has often been a mess, it has also resulted in some fascinating new directions for its heroes. In case the end is nigh, we’ve looked…
While the ultimate showdown between DC Comics’ iconic heroes doesn’t hit theaters until March, the battle begins now, in your mouth.
A large amount of new Batman v Superman footage and promo material was released today, and strangely all it includes some major new information on the heroes who will be v-ing each other in the film. Here are four things we gleaned from the new trailer, TV spot, and images.
There are not many people fond of the ending to Man of Steel—especially Superman’s infamous bout of neck-snapping—and there are many who eagerly await the day for Zack Snyder to apologize for the wanton destruction and general not-Superman-ness of it all. Today is not that day.
When it comes to pop culture art, there’s a fine line between cute and annoying. Lots of artists turn characters or actors into non-threatening, sweet version of themselves but you can go too far. Jeff Victor doesn’t. And he tows that line by blending in a heft dose of nostalgia.
Last night’s Supergirl was all about making the lovestruck nerd Winn into a sympathetic character, by showing us his psycho supervillain dad. And it worked… until Winn tried to use Supergirl’s sympathy to steal a kiss. And then he gave this weird speech.
There have been teases for months and months about DC’s cinematic take on the Justice League and how they might be involved in Batman v Superman. But a new image that’s hit social media might just be our first official look at the Justice League standing tall.
You know the deal. This is a rumor for the moment, but it might be true. If it’s true, then it’s also a spoiler, so read on at your own risk.
The trailers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have revealed there will be some truly epic battles playing out between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel, but deep down there’s a part of me who would find it just as entertaining if the two battled it out like a pair of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots.
It’s amazing that anyone would ever dismiss Wonder Woman. She’s a better fighter than Superman, and more powerful than 99.9 of most other DC characters... and she’s got the fight card to prove it. Besides all the villains she’s defeated, here are some of the fellow superheroes she’s had occasion to trounce.
Lois and Clark. It’s a pairing held up as one of the dreamiest in all comics, the classic romance of the secret superhero and the no-nonsense reporter that loved him. The two have gone through some rough spots—but let’s not forget, in their earlier incarnations, Lois and Clark could be real douchey to each other.
Zach Snyder just dropped a new teaser for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice on Twitter, showing off a bit of new footage that we’ve seen hinted at in earlier teasers.
I mean, just look at them. Sure, one’s a heavily armored angry dude and the other is a space alien with glowing red eyes that are about to shoot out hot laser beams of death. But still, babies!
No, DC. No no no. Oh no.
Wives and girlfriends of superheroes aren’t as hard-done-by as parents of superheros, but they’re a close second. Not only do they inevitably have a rough time, but everybody (including fans) hate them—which is no surprise. Each superhero girlfriend has a large number of factors working against her.
It sucks that Will Smith won’t be in the Independence Day sequel—but wait ‘til you hear the random explanation for his character being gone. Alas, this is standard practice. When stars decide not to come back, movies come up with rationales for writing them out, that go beyond “dog ate my homework.”
The same way you really only buy sugary breakfast cereals for the smattering of marshmallows they include, this $20 tin of Justice League paperclips is still worth every last penny even if you toss all but the ten Batman clips it comes with.
It’s been one hell of a year for DC Comics. Sure, they didn’t explode their comic book universe, but the heroes and villains of DC have gone through some big changes. Last week, we caught you up with what’s going on in Marvel’s “All-New” universe, and now, it’s time to catch you up on Superman and pals.
