If yesterday’s Marvel TV panel closed the gap on Comic-Con 2015’s lack of movies, Marvel’s upcoming animation slate might well pave over it. Preview the animated Guardians of the Galaxy, along with Marvel’s Avengers: Ultron Revolution and Ultimate Spider-Man Vs. The Sinister 6 by our full panel coverage!

The Killing Joke is one of the more notable entries in Batman comic book history, offering one of the most sadistic versions of the Joker to date. Alan Moore’s book is one of the more divisive among fans, who either love it or despise it, and in further proving their commitment to the darker side of superhero stories, DC is taking The Killing Joke and adapting it…into an animated feature, of all things.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy may have a new volume of cinematic adventures in their future, but we’ll see Star-Lord and co. much sooner than that in animated form. Now primed for a September premiere, Disney XD’s animated Guardians have a brand-new poster, full roster of premiere dates, and a new tricked-out synopsis with some of the Marvel universe’s biggest names!
The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow pulled quite a bit of focus from Arrow and The Flash’s shared universe, so much so that we’d nearly forgotten the animated Vixen series on CW Seed. Now, the network has announced who will voice the iconic animal-wielding hero, as well as what Arrow and Flash stars will drop in on Vixen for some shared continuity.
We're getting ever closer to the premiere of the new Justice League: Gods and Monsters animated movie at this year's San Diego Comic-Con --- and its release on video shortly thereafter --- and I'm not sure that I've ever seen Warner Bros. go as hard at promoting one of their DTV releases as they are with this one. And it makes sense that they would, too; as the product of legendary animator Bruce Timm, who co-wrote the story with Alan Burnett and provided new designs for all the characters, Gods and Monsters is definitely something for fans to be interested in.
Today, Disney XD debuted Two More Eggs, a new series of 40 short cartoons by Mike and Matt Chapman, alias the Homestar Runner creators the Brothers Chaps, airing both on television and at Disney XD's Youtube Channel. And if the first three are any indication, they're going to be exactly the kind of weird that H*R fans want to see.
The acclaimed Image comic series Chew, from writer John Layman and artist Rob Guillory, is getting its own movie adaptation — well, an animated one, anyway. The Walking Dead’s Steven Yeun and The Guild’s Felicia Day have already joined the voice cast for the upcoming film, which just added another familiar geek favorite: former Doctor Who star David Tennant.
Pixar Animation Studios' fifteenth feature film, Inside Out, opens in theaters across North America this weekend, and it's already receiving rave reviews from critics --- with an aggregate score at this writing of 99% positive on Rotten Tomatoes.
It's with Inside Out’s release and the twentieth anniversary of Toy Story in mind that we take you through a visual celebration of Pixar’s history, including behind the scenes production art, promotional pieces, and fan creations.
Earlier this week we ran an exclusive preview of Legends of the Guard #4, the final installment of the latest collection of short stories told by amazing creators in the world of David Petersen's Mouse Guard. One of the standouts among the many stories told through the three volumes of the anthology is Ryan Lang's "The Watcher's Stone," a moving and inventive ten-page story.
Lang is completely new to comics, but he's an accomplished freelance illustrator and animator whose credits include work on last year's Disney animated movie Big Hero 6. ComicsAlliance spoke briefly to Lang about his artistic process and how he came to Legends of the Guard.
They’ll never stop The Simpsons, so have no fear, they’ve got stories for years, but did you know America’s favorite animated family was thought up in the lobby before a pitch meeting? Or that Matt Groening based most of the characters on his own family? These are just some of the Springfield kwyjibos populating the tenth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which pays a visit to The Simpsons’ home state of … uh, somewhere!
