Batman vs Superman Batman Ben Affleck

The Batman vs. Superman trailer came and went, and we still didn't get a great look at Ben Affleck in the traditional Batman costume (we’ll leave that armored suit out of this). We’ve all seen that black and white promo shot, but what does Batfleck look like in clear, full color? Today, we have that answer.

‘Batman vs. Superman’ Rumor: Jared Leto’s Joker to Cameo, May Not Have Tattoos

Batman vs Superman Joker
Warner Bros.

Jared Leto’s Joker will be an important component in Suicide Squad, but we may get to see him on screen before then, as it’s being reported that Leto will make a cameo appearance in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman before he makes his formal debut in Suicide Squad. If the rumor is true, it looks like DC is definitely taking another page out of the Marvel handbook, which isn’t exactly a bad thing. In other Joker-related news, those laughable tattoos from our first official look at Leto in character might not actually be a part of his look.

gl-evo-feat

Many of comics’ most popular heroes have been around for decades, and in the case of the big names from the publisher now known as DC Comics, some have been around for a sizable chunk of a century. As these characters passed through the different historical eras known in comics as the Golden Age (the late 1930s through the early 1950s), the Silver Age (the mid 1950s through the late 1960s), the Bronze Age (the early 1970s through the mid 1980s) and on into modern times, they have experienced considerable changes in tone and portrayal that reflect the zeitgeist of the time.

With this new feature we’ll help you navigate the very best stories of DC Comics’ most beloved characters decade by decade. This week, we’re taking a look at the Green Lantern.

The 25 Best Superhero Movies of the Last 25 Years

Best Superhero Movies
Marvel/Warner Bros./Sony Pictures

After selecting the best sci-fi movies of the last 25 years and the best comedies of the last 25 years, ScreenCrush decided the only logical way to wrap up the #CountdownToUltron and Avengers 2 was to choose the best superhero movies of the last 25 years as well. Initially, this was just supposed to be a brief essay. But on an innocent field trip to the world’s most advanced genetics lab, this blog post was bitten by a radioactive list and transformed into the gargantuan piece you see before you. On that day, we all learned a valuable lesson: That with great power must come great listicles.

The Bottle City Travel Guide: Pre-Crisis 30th Century Metropolis

Pre-Crisis 30th Century Metropolis

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.

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s 15 Facts About ‘Man of Steel’!

mosytyk

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!

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.

Why Jared Leto’s Joker Is Both Problematic and Kind of Interesting

Jared Leto Joker
Warner Bros.

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.
