As Gotham Season 2's promotion ramps up, focus continually aims at the colorful villains emerging throughout the city, rather than young Bruce Wayne’s cowled future. Still, a new photo takes us inside the major Bat-revelation of Season 1's finale, while Ben McKenzie offers his take on when the series should introduce a full-grown Batman.

For the past few weeks, the most interesting story going into WWE's SummerSlam event was definitely the tag team match that saw Arrow star Stephen Amell becoming the latest celebrity to step into the wrestling ring. Partnering up with the high-flying Neville, Amell was pit against Stardust, who has been laboring under the impression that Amell was, in fact, the real Green Arrow, Oliver Queen, with this whole "Stephen Amell" thing being a secret identity that fooled all of his viewers, and that his defeat of a superhero would allow him to take his place as pro wrestling's greatest supervillain.
If that sounds a little complicated, it is, but it was also pretty great. Last night, the match finally happened, and as you might expect if you're even slightly familiar with how celebrity appearances work in WWE, Amell and Neville got the win in a match that saw Amell diving from the top rope to the outside on both of his opponents to set up the victory.
The Flash left us with more than a few timey-wimey questions from its first season finale, but the first official Season 2 photo may afford some speedy answers. Learn what happened after the Central City black hole, and see what’s got S.T.A.R. Labs so jumpy in the first Flash Season 2 photo!
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.
Historically speaking, the Teen Titans have not had a really great time dealing with adults. If it's not a one-eyed weirdo trying to murder them with swords and juvenile delinquents, it's a cult leader who literally drinks blood trying to turn them over to demonic ancestors. So really, it's not much of a surprise that this time, they're dealing with being framed for mass murder.
Well, Superboy is, anyway, and as you might expect, that's a pretty big source of stress, to the point where it's left the team fractured, with Robin, Raven, Beast Boy, Bunker and Chimera on the run from everyone --- including Manchester Black. And really, when you think about all that, then deciding to break into a jail in a last-ditch effort to clear your names actually starts to seem like a pretty decent idea.
Gotham star Ben McKenzie recently promised the second season to improve upon muddled reception of the first, but the latest trailer seems to be clowning around. There’s more Joker camp than ever in a new “Rise of the Villains” spot, and we even get a taste of (sigh) Barbara’s arc to boot.
George Miller pulled off nothing short of a miracle with Mad Max: Fury Road, taking $150 million off to the desert and returning with a powerful, visually sublime action film that is rightfully being hailed by many as one of the best in years — if not decades. While we wait to find out if Miller’s proposed sequel will be given the green light, a new rumor indicates that he may be in line to direct a different sequel for Warner Bros.
In addition to all the Arrow Season 4 and Flash Season 2 teases of late, not to mention Legends of Tomorrow, The CW will spawn a fourth series of sorts in CW Seed’s animated Vixen series, premiering this Tuesday. We’ve seen a few tidbits of the new animated DC drama to star the likes of Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin and more, and now a hearty new featurette offers up a closer look.
Gotham Season 2 has debuted a few teasers and posters by now, with series star Ben McKenzie swearing up and down this year won’t make the same ‘mistake’ of last year, but does Season 2 look any different by its first photo? Former Commish and Freak Show vet Michael Chiklis arrives in Gotham by its first official promo shot, staring down the corrupt GCPD.
Q: Why was the Silver Age awesome? -- @sackobooks
A: Never before in the history of this column has there been such a complicated, open-ended question that could be answered with a picture of Superman with a lion head. I mean, let's be honest with each other here: That pretty much covers it, and if you can look at Superman, cursed with the head of the most noble of beasts, lamenting about how his girlfriend must forever be condemned to date a lion-man now, and not think that it's at least a little bit awesome, then there's not a whole lot I'm going to be able to tell you to change your mind.
But that doesn't mean that I'm not going to try.
