DC's Convergence crossover is built around pitting cities pulled from different eras against each other in an ultimate battle to determine which continuity reigns supreme, and as you may already know just from reading that sentence, that can get a little confusing. With all the Gothams and Metropolises (Metropoli?) throwing their heroes against each other, we thought it might be useful to offer our readers a handy guide to telling Pre-Flashpoint from Post-Crisis with a series of Bottle City Travel Guides!
Today, we're taking a trip to the Metropolis of the 30th Century! Well, one of many Metropolises of one very specific 30th century, so... this is already getting a little too complicated.
As announced at Gillette's World Shaving Headquarters in Boston earlier this month,the company that proudly proclaims itself as "the best a man can get" has partnered with Stark Industries to create a set of four prototype razors built with “Avengers-inspired technology.” While you're waiting to catch Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron in theaters this Friday, we're offering you a unique chance to win a set of handcrafted replicas of these prototype razors, signed by Stan Lee himself!
Current Superman and Man of Steel star Henry Cavill was officially cast in the role in January of 2011. But, seven years earlier Cavill was also cast as Kal-El in a different Superman project. That film, which was written by J.J. Abrams and would've been directed by McG, was eventually canceled and Cavill never shot a frame of Superman. Until many years later when he was called back for a new Superman reboot and given the job. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which follows the last son of Krypton in Man of Steel!
All this month, to mark the imminent release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we've been asking you to vote for your favorite, best, greatest Avengers members from the 100+ heroes who have signed up over the years (not counting spies, honorary members, future members, etc.). Along the way we've seen a lot of characters fall by the wayside with diabolically low scores; there's not a lot of love out there for Jocasta or Kaluu when there's a Thor or a Carol Danvers to vote for, and the newest Avengers inevitably have far less support than most of the classic members.
So now it's time for those second-stringers, third-stringers, and how-many-strings-does-this-thing-have-stringers to shine! We've collected the 54 least popular Avengers members into a single runoff poll, and your votes will determine bragging rights among the Avengers least likely to make it to a future summer blockbuster movie.
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.
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 weekend, Suicide Squad director David Ayer revealed our first look at Jared Leto in full Joker costume. It was a smart move, in a sense — this way, Ayer and Leto put the image out there ahead of any pesky on-set paparazzi pics, fully taking ownership of the new look before someone else could take the wind out of their sails. If they were to hide him during production with the intention of revealing the Joker as a surprise later on, fans would probably react more poorly than they did last night. The truth is, Leto’s Joker is both problematic…and not.
After an awesome set of countdown trailers that teased the returns of Azrael, Catwoman and Nightwing, Rocksteady and Warner Bros. Interactive have released a badass, new trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight, and it finally answers a lot of questions we have about the game while inspiring many more.
We're already quite excited about A-Force, the new Avengers team from writers G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett, and artist Jorge Molina, that brings together some of Marvel's all-time greatest heroes as perhaps the greatest super-team of all time, including Captain Marvel, Dazzler, America Chavez, Nico Minoru, Spider-Gwen, and She-Hulk. Now we're especially excited because of this unlettered preview that shows them fighting sharks.
At some point, we’re not sure when, Sesame Street stopped being a low-key educational children’s program and started being an educational children’s program that finds time to create internet-friendly parodies of whatever pop culture event is huge in a given week. So yeah, of course the show has made an Avengers-themed sketch and of course it’s called The Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon and of course it recasts Cookie Monster as the Hulk.
The 1966 Batman television show was one of the most successful and influential adaptations of comic books to mass media of all time. Over the course of three seasons and 120 episodes, the series became a cultural force with its unique combination of tongue-in-cheek humor, thrilling superhero adventure and celebrity guest stars, and shaped the way the public would view the Caped Crusader for the next five decades. Now, in the midst of a well-deserved renaissance of the show, ComicsAlliance is proud to present The Batman ’66 Episode Guide, an in-depth examination of every single adventure, arch-criminal and deathtrap cliffhanger of the series.
This week, we finally meet that felonious feline... Catwoman!
