So far the Marvel movies have been pretty light on the flashbacks, especially when it comes to origin stories. The upcoming Black Panther, however, will feature a few flashbacks to T’Challa’s youth as it tells a kind of coming-of-age story. We’ve known for a bit that there would be flashbacks, but now we know some details: at least one of them will feature a 1990s-era AC Transit bus.
We’ve still one more Marvel Netflix series to go before The Defenders hit the block, but the team is already hard at work in the newest photos. See for yourself, as Iron Fist takes on a masked criminal, and Jessica Jones goes out for a stroll in new previews of the team-up miniseries.
For a series so preoccupied with time-travel and a bleak future, The Flash is starting to look an awful lot like the past. Now that we know Robbie Amell will mysteriously return in his role as Ronnie Raymond, another Season 1 veteran has confirmed a return over Twitter.
Will Arnett’s Batman was by far the hilarious standout of The LEGO Movie, and we’re a little less than a month away from seeing his solo movie take off. But it seems another character might be stealing the show from Batman this time: Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl, is featured in a new TV spot for The LEGO Batman Movie that shows the Dark Knight might have met his match.
Everyone loves trivia about their favorite animated features and series, but with over 100 years of animation history behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in cartoons in this continuing video series. You think you know cartoons? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
Hey, gang, it's Music Week, so today we're taking a look at the most popular cartoon band of all time, the Gorillaz!
One of the standards I use to judge a comic is how much it makes me care about something I never thought I'd wind up so emotionally invested in. The all-time champ in this regard is, of course, Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye, where I was moved to tears by the romance between a flash drive and a talking car, but IDW's Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles is a close second for making me genuinely care about whether an Arctic fox named Alopex could truly find friendship in this cold, cruel world.
A lot of that had to do with the incredible art of Sophie Campbell on key moments in Alopex's stories, which is why I'm incredibly excited about the solcitations for IDW's upcoming TMNT titles, in which Campbell returns to Alopex and teams her up with the invisible hero Nobody for a camping trip that's almost certain to go bad. Check out the solicits below!
Gotham has not been particularly coy with Cameron Monaghan’s return as our sort-of-Joker Jerome, though we’ve yet to see the villain up and about. That chances with a new midseason return promo, in which Jerome’s resurrection veers closer to a very famous comic tale.
Good news: fans are finally getting their shot to lay claim to two highly sought-after pieces of comic book memorabilia, with George Reeves’ original Superman costume and the Batsuit worn by Michael Keaton during his stint as the Batman both up at auction until January 26. The bad news: you’re going to have to part with at least tens of thousands of dollars if you want to get your mitts on that spandex.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
This week's selection of the best cosplay ever includes Catwoman, Symmetra, Death, Charizard and More
The most widely recognized iterations of Batman’s constant foe the Joker would probably have to be Heath Ledger as the unchained mad-dog of The Dark Knight, Jack Nicholson as an urbane creep in Tim Burton’s 1989 film, and to a lesser extent, Cesar Romero’s campy turn in the goofy TV series from the ’60s. But Mark Hamill logged more hours as the Clown Prince of Crime than the rest of them put together, voicing the Joker in the long-running animated series and its many spin-offs. The man with the greatest claim to the Joker persona dusted off his special crazy-voice this week for a more pointedly political purpose than the usual cocktail-party entertainment.
