It’s no secret that Hollywood has a hard time embracing older women (related: this brilliant Amy Schumer sketch), but there’s one who will never have to struggle to get work: Wonder Woman. The immortal superhero has been alive for centuries, and in case you were worried that the new Warner Bros. iteration of the character would try to make her more human, you needn’t worry anymore.
A new international trailer for Fantastic Four has arrived online, giving us another proper introduction to the team and another good look at the villainous Dr. Doom, who — you had to admit — looks much better than the version from the previous Fantastic Four movies.
Even if you aren’t familiar with his comic book counterpart, the name of the villainous Apocalypse definitely conjures up ideas of complete global annihilation, a bad guy who could very well usher in the End Times. And that’s the mega-conflict the X-Men are facing into in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, which sees the team battling the most epic threat yet. Oscar Isaac is set to play the role of the big bad Apocalypse, and although he can’t say too much, he is promising some pretty big things.
Captain America: Civil War seems like it could be another Avengers installment with so many members of the MCU reprising their roles for Cap’s third outing. But that’s kind of the point, since this film is primed to make major waves in the Marvel universe, completely altering the future of our heroes. New set photos definitely confirm how much of a superhero party this is, with Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr., Paul Rudd and more hanging out on set.
When it was first announced that director Josh Trank had cast Michael B. Jordan in the role of the traditionally-white Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four, there was a bit of (sadly predictable) fan backlash. It was the same sort of ignorant, unreasonable outcry we’ve endured anytime someone suggests we have a Spider-Man who isn’t white (even though we have one in the comics). Jordan has mostly kept quiet about the senseless anger regarding his casting, but the actor has finally delivered a thoughtful response.
Deadpool isn’t particularly known for being a nice guy, but you know who is? Ryan Reynolds, the star of the upcoming Deadpool solo movie. And when he’s not busy filming action-packed scenes and mouthing off behind that mask, he’s taking time out to be a real-life hero, making one little Deadpool fan’s wish come true.
'Cute' is sometimes an under-valued concept. 'Adorable' as a word can seem dismissive and diminishing. But there are times when these are not only the right words to use, but perhaps the highest compliments one could offer, because cute and adorable can be great. In the case of Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson's Boom Studios series Capture Creatures, "cute" and "adorable" are words that shine with a clear and exalting purpose; for this series is cute, and it is adorable, and it is great! If you don't believe me, check out this exclusive preview to issue #4, on sale next week.
Over the past few years, I've often wondered why comic book publishers weren't taking advantage of the opportunities that we've seen through the growth of webcomics, hooking new readers with free content and then using that to drive them towards the established market. Today, though, it looks like that's exactly what they're doing.
Along with its parent company, Warner Bros., DC Comics is part of a relaunch of three kid-friendly sites, LooneyTunes.com, ScoobyDoo.com and DCKids.com. In addition to videos and games, they're putting up free full-length stories for kids --- including great all ages comics like Eric Jones and Landry Walker's Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade, and the best Looney Tunes comic ever.
Rocksteady Studios' Brand Marketing Producer Dax Ginn is back to provide another behind the scenes look at Batman: Arkham Knight's development with his team's latest Arkham Insider video. This time, Ginn is interviewing Lead Character Artist Albert Feliu Gomis, and we get all kinds of awesome info about Rocksteady's third and final game in the Arkham series, including details about the Dark Knight's mysterious new villain.
Mega City One has been through an awful lot over the past few years. Not only is there the usual crime that comes with being a fascist future state, but the city's also had to deal with stuff like the Chaos Plague, space lasers, all sorts of other problems. It's got so bad, in fact, that the city's 40,000 wealthiest citizens have got together to buy a spaceship and just get the heck out of Earth before something else happens.
That's where John Wagner and Greg Staples' Judge Dredd: Dark Justice picks up, with the launch of the Mayflower into deep space. Oh, and also the Dark Judges, the genocidal, immortal, inter-dimensional entities who see life itself as a crime, and punish it with mass murder are also coming back. So, you know, I'll let you guess how well that's gonna work out for 'em.
