After Logan’s runtime was increased by a whole three minutes from the version that screened for critics, we all hopped on the post-credits scene speculation. Would it tease Deadpool 2? Would it further wrap up Wolverine’s story? Would it hint at the next Wolverine-less X-Men movie? Better hold your horses, because James Mangold himself has now said that Logan has no post-credits scene after all.
Last year, McFarlane Toys reworked its strategy a bit. Instead of focusing on a few longrunning lines, the company switched to a primary series that encompassed all its licensed properties. Dubbed Color Tops, each wave mixes up comic, gaming, television and film characters into a larger collection. While the big guns like The Walking Dead still make up the primary focus, now things like Mass Effect, Attack on Titan, and even Spawn all fall under one banner. Add in building sets, and you have quite a bit of promising content coming from McFarlane in 2017.
It’s election season in book three of Transmetropolitan, "Year Of The Bastard," and the worst sicknesses of politics are bubbling to the surface. There’s reactionary monsters in suits, there’s heartbreak for Spider, and there’s the hot question of the moment: which politician in Transmet most resembles the current US head of state, and is the answer less obvious than it appears?
This year’s Star Wars Celebration will take place in Orlando (good news for those of you who couldn’t make it across the pond last year), and as it’s the 40th anniversary of the iconic franchise, you can expect some pretty major things. While we wait to learn more about Lucasfilm’s plans for the 2017 convention, the studio has unveiled a beautiful new poster along with a few details regarding the first panel of the year.
In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies and You Think You Know TV comes a new YouTube series: Top Five! Every month (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).
This week, Comixology has launched a Batgirl sale, celebrating 50 years since Barbara Gordon first donned the cape and cowl in 1967's Detective Comics #359. If you're a fan of Babs, there's plenty there to choose from --- including Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart, and Babs Tarr's critically acclaimed "Batgirl of Burnside" relaunch, the post-Rebirth world-traveling adventures, and even some underrated deep-cut classics like Batgirl Adventures and DC First in there, too.
But Barbara Gordon isn't the only character to ever take the identity of Batgirl, and if you're up for diving into the hazy years of the early 2000s, there's a bunch of great stories in there about the second Batgirl, Cassandra Cain.
This week, Team Flash visits Gorilla City, Wally and Jesse explore their feelings, and Dylan and Ziah monkey around making gorilla puns. "Attack on Gorilla City" was directed by Dermott Downs, story by Andrew Kreisberg, with a teleplay by Aaron Helbing & David Kob.
We’ve seen more than a few looks at Samurai Jack’s Adult Swim return for Season 5, but does that famous Genndy Tartakovsky action still hold up? Hands down, as revealed in a rip-roaring, robot-slashing and heavy metal clip from Jack’s futuristic return.
It was a relatively small showing from Kotobukiya at this year's Toy Fair, but nearly everything being shown off was brand new. That includes a healthy dose of ArtFX statues both large and small, and some new licenses like DC's television shows. Sure, there were more Star Wars and Bishoujo pieces in place, but Koto has plenty in store for fans of just about everything under the sun.
Rob Liefeld's Youngblood returns this May from Image Comics. As previously announced, the new series comes from writer Chad Bowers, with art by Jim Towe, who plan to draw on previous incarnations of the team while also establishing a whole new status quo for the characters, and giving them a very modern context.
