We’re still on the fence over DC branching out into live-action comedy with NBC’s upcoming Powerless, particularly after a bit of creative trouble, but we finally know when the series will suit up. NBC has selected a February date for the series, along with slots for a Blacklist spinoff, another Chicago and more.
Elizabeth Banks’ Rita Repulsa is back in a new image from the upcoming Power Rangers movie, and she looks pretty darn pleased with herself. The Power Rangers official Twitter account debuted a new still of the villain, with the caption “Thought you saw the last of me!? Ignoramus, you thought wrong. I have glorious catastrophic plans for the holiday season.”
From its days as unfamiliar black-and-white single comics discovered as if by chance in Western comics shops, manga has become the biggest-selling sector of the comics industry, and an influence on dozens of creators in the North American industry.
Much like Western comics, manga is for everyone, so if you know someone who loves comics but has never got into manga, we've put together a gift guide with great ideas for books and movies that you can buy them this holiday season.
Not long after director Tim Miller exited the Deadpool sequel over creative differences with Ryan Reynolds, reports revealed the reason behind the split: Miller, a VFX pro, wanted to make a more polished (and more expensive) sequel, while Reynolds (and screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick) wanted to stick to the scrappy (and less expensive) style that made the first film such a hit. Now, with John Wick co-director David Leitch at the helm, Reynolds and producer Simon Kinberg have offered a quick update on Deadpool 2, including words of praise for Leitch and a promise to make sure the sequel is in keeping with its predecessor.
A while back, I interviewed Matthew K. Manning and I spoke briefly about how he once wrote a young adult novel in the Tony Hawk's 900 Revolution series, which is about a group of radical teens searching for the pieces of Tony Hawk's skateboard, which was shattered with the mystical force of the world's most incredible skateboard trick. And honestly? I thought that was the most jealous that I could be of someone else's writing career.
Now, though, Manning has managed to top himself as the writer of Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures, in which the animated versions of both franchises collide in a dimension-hopping adventure. And next week, when the second issue hits, the focus is on the villains as the Joker and Harley Quinn team up with Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady --- and nothing good will come of this.
Over the last ten years, First Second has made a name for itself as a publisher of top quality titles by a diverse range of creators, reflecting a wide array of experiences and genres. Today, the publisher announced its Fall 2017 line-up, which includes hard-boiled crime stories, coming-of-age stories, and perhaps most important, stories about dogs.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
Whether they're clones or evil twins, imperfect duplicates or the guy who had the job before you, the evil doppelganger is a classic trope in superhero comics, and we've gathered five of the very best.
At long last, the fragmented approach to The Walking Dead Season 7 is giving way to an actual story, if only in time for this weekend’s midseason finale “Hearts Still Beating.” We’ve seen one clip, but a second look finally brings us back to Carol and Morgan, while yet another sees Aaron and Rick undertaking a risky voyage.
We talked with Transformers: Forged to Fight creative director Cuz Parry about the upcoming mobile fighter, including what lessons were learned on Contest of Champions and just how the Generation 1 and cinematic universes would collide.
The future was looking bright for the X-Men franchise after Bryan Singer revived it with First Class, but after this summer’s Apocalypse, it’ll take a lot to get the mutants back on their feet. The upcoming Wolverine solo joint Logan will see Hugh Jackman comb his hair into ears for one last ride, but after that it’s anyone’s game. Today, we hear there’s a new X-Men movie shooting sometime next spring, but which one is it?
