Arrow showrunners made clear that Matt Ryan’s crossover return to the role of Constantine was a one-off for Season 4, but in lieu of seeing the actor’s take once again, we can at least hear it in the animated Justice League Dark. A new featurette goes behind-the-scenes of the long-awaited adaptation, including Ryan’s return as the chain-smoking demon-fighter.
I've been excited about Greg Pak, Mirko Colak, Wil Quintana, and Simon Bowland's Kingsway West ever since it was announced. Not only am I a fan of pretty much everyone involved already, but the idea of a Chinese gunslinger roaming through an Old West blasted apart by wars over "Red Gold," a mysterious substance that makes magic happen? That, friends and neighbors, is exactly my jam.
But if you need a little extra reason to get hype for it, Greg Pak --- a man who is always staying on his grind --- has provided. Check out a full-on video trailer below, featuring art from the comic, narration from Pak, and an original Kingsway West-inspired song by Adam Warrock!
Shortly after the debut of Smallville, but long before comic book superhero TV shows were as commonplace as they are today, the WB launched a live-action Birds of PreyTV series that lasted just one 13-episode season, and seems little mourned today. In an effort to determine just what went wrong with the seemingly before-its-time show, our Bird Watching team of Meredith Tomeo and Caleb Mozzocco are watching and dissecting every episode. You can watch along with us on DVD or digitally on iTunes or Amazon.
In this episode, the Birds face their greatest challenge to date: babysitting. Complicating matters is the fact that the baby in their care is no ordinary baby... and Harley Quinn can't wait to get her evil psychoanalyzing hands on it. "Three Birds and a Baby" originally aired on October 30 of 2002, and was written by David H. Goodman and Julie Hess, and directed by Craig Zisk.
With Doctor Strange set to hit theaters in a few months, it seems a bit late in the game to add new cast members, but a new poster for Marvel’s mystical superhero film reveals that that’s most certainly the case. The poster debuted at Comic-Con last weekend, with several people immediately pointing out the curious addition of Benjamin Bratt’s name in the casting credits. But who might he be playing?
Has any one person meant as much to the DC Universe over the past 25 years than Bruce Timm? When the animator and TV producer co-created Batman: The Animated Series with Eric Radomski back in 1992, he and his team at Warner Bros. offered a fresh take on an iconic character, finding a balance between the breezy fun of the ’60s Batman and the darker Dark Knight of the ’70s and ’80s. Timm then went on to co-create one of the more entertaining versions of Superman in another animated series, debuting in 1996; and in 2001 he carried the lessons from those two shows into Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, which together comprise some of the best superhero television ever made.
A new fan theory has emerged in recent months suggesting that Jared Leto’s version of The Joker in Suicide Squad is actually Jason Todd — a hypothesis that gained a little traction when it was revealed that the Robin suit featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice belonged to Todd. If you subscribe to this particular theory, then David Ayer has some disappointing news for you.
Pokémon Go is the biggest phenomenon of 2016, and everyone is getting up and going out and about in search of a Pikachu --- and likely coming home with armfuls of Drowzee and Ratatta. Niantic Labs have perfectly replicated the wishes of every child of the early 2000s and reminded us all why the world went crazy for Pokémon.
If you love Pokémon Go and want to read some comics in a similar vein, we've assembled a list of five of the best comics to read while you're sat at a Pokestop waiting for your phone to buzz. Love that? Try this!
Preacher had languished in development hell long enough for every actor to end up fancast in the title role at one point or another, but James Franco might seem a stretch, no matter how much range he shows in a given year. The attachment of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to AMC’s Preacher changed that, but how close did Franco get to the role Dominic Cooper inevitably won?
Captain America: Civil War introduced two more Marvel heroes: Tom Holland’s new Spider-Man, and Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther — both of whom will hit the big screen in their own solo films over the next couple of years. We know a little about Spider-Man: Homecoming, but not very much at all about Black Panther, aside from the fact that it has a great cast and director. And thanks to one of those actors, we now have our first plot details for the upcoming film.
Ah yes, it's time once again to be regaled by the magnificence that is Mezco's One:12 Collective. If you thought the Toy Fair showings were eye opening, then San Diego Comic-Con's reveals may well just blow. your. mind.
I don't know quite how Mezco does it. One day, out of the blue, they have a cool mixed-media one-twelfth scale figure of Batman made as a special piece. The next, Mezco is blowing down the doors of what you thought was possible at this scale, and dropping some seriously amazing Marvel, DC, and television and movie characters in the One:12 brand. It's probably the fastest growing specialty figure line, and while that's a double-edged sword for collectors, the positives of getting the bossest Darkseid figure ever far outweigh the negatives.
