The producers of the new FOX TV series Gothamhave made it abundantly clear that the show will focus on Jim Gordon, not Batman, but apparently David Mazouz, the 13-year-old actor who will play Bruce Wayne on the show, didn't get the memo, because a photo from the set shows he's carrying around his own Bat-mask.
Camren Bicondova, the young actress who will play a teenage Selina Kyle on the show, has her own comic accoutrements, apparently. Set photos show her scurrying around the city set with a pair of Catwoman-style goggles on her head. Check out all the images that hit the Internet today (some of which are from a pivotal scene in Bruce Wayne's childhood) after the jump!
Q: Who do you find more psychologically interesting, the Joker or Lex Luthor?-- Jordan, via email
A: You know, it's weird. As much as you see Superman and Batman together in stories where they're continually contrasted against each other, full of endlessly terrible first-person narration about how "Clark likes pancakes because he can't understand what it means to be vulnerable" but "Bruce always told me Alfred makes the best French toast, he has so much trouble trusting others" or whatever, their arch-nemeses don't often get compared with each other in the same way. They team up from time to time, sure, but usually the focus is just on their common goal of murdering the good guys, so you don't get too much there. That said, I like both of those characters a lot, and after thinking about it, I've come to the conclusion that as the World's Foremost Batmanologist, as someone who has written extensively about the Joker and his relationship with Batman, it's definitely Lex Luthor.
When Warner Bros. announced that Terriers and Grounded for Life star Donal Logue had been cast as Harvey Bullock in the new FOX series about a young Jim Gordon, Gotham, some wondered if the famously long-haired and bearded actor could look the part of the iconic character.
The studio released its first official photo of Logue in costume today, and it the costume designers seem to have pulled it off, though he's a little more slick looking than Bullock looks in the comics and the actor's goatee remains. Check out the full image after the jump.
Take, for instance, what the fine folks at Fawcett did back in 1946, when they took a story that, by itself, was nothing special, and then skewed it just far enough that it's one of the most mind-boggling comics I've ever read.
Of all the redesigns that took place for DC's "New 52" relaunch, the one that was most disappointing to the staff of ComicsAlliance was undoubtedly the one that hit Amanda Waller. Rather than the short, stout, and impossibly tough woman who appeared in the pages of John Ostrander, Kim Yale and Luke McDonnell's Suicide Squad, the redesigned Waller was young, slim and sexy. She was, in other words, just like every other "idealized" body type in superhero comics, and lost a bit of what made her unique.
Well, it seems our disappointment has found us in good company, alongside no less than Ostrander himself. In a column at ComicMix that went up this week, the writer expressed both a love of the character he shaped for over 60 issues, and a dismay at how the character's redesign conflicts with his original intent.
Over the past year, DC's digital Adventures ofSuperman anthology has played host to some of the most exciting creative teams working in comics today. With the current story, though, the scale of the whole project has gotten much bigger in both creative team and subject matter. Writer Joe Keatinge has been joined by an incredible roster of talent that includes Ming Doyle, Brent Schoonover, Dave Williams, Tula Lotay and Jason Shawn Alexander to chronicle a three-part epic that spans Superman's life from 1939 all the way to the end of time, and the end result is one of the best Superman stories I've read in a while.
To find out more behind how the project came to be and what he wanted to accomplish with it, I spoke to Keatinge and got his thoughts on the reason for multiple artists, the influence of Jack Kirby on the story, and how he compares and contrasts Superman and Dracula.
Though the massive reveals of Toy Fair 2014 are still being felt in DC Collectibles' June 2014 solicitations, there's still plenty of new action figures, statues and other items to be seen. The first-ever Sandman: Overture statue (and a bronze variation) is slated to arrive in September, alongside two full waves of Scribblenauts Unmasked blind-boxed minifigures. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn will also all be represented by several busts and ministatues. You can see all of DCC's solicitations for June, after the jump.
Courtesy of DC Comics, ComicsAlliance brings you an advance look at new periodical comic books, collected editions and graphic novels going on sale in June 2014 (and in some cases beyond) from the publisher’s New 52 superhero line, the mature readers Vertigo imprint, and the DC Entertainment brand of special projects, digital-first, all-ages and licensed titles. All of the following books can be purchased at finer comic book shops, where you can also pre-order your selections to ensure you’ll get a copy before they sell out.
As ubiquitous as hands-free GoPro cameras have become in action sports (I notice about a dozen atop helmets every time I go snowboarding) and parkour, there are scant few videos online showing the HD recorders at work in costumed crimefighting. Thanks to the team at Corridor Digital and their drone-flying friend Taylor Chien, Superman fans now have some insight into what it'd look like if The Man of Steel strapped one to his Kryptonian noggin' and flew around southern California Metropolis.
We like diversity here at ComicsAlliance. We've said it before, and we'll say it again. We're also big fans of superheroes, and that probably goes without saying.
We especially like diversity with our superheroes. Diversity broadens the genre's reach, encourages respect and understanding of people's differences, and gives minority audiences more chances to see themselves in fiction, and those are all great things. Because of this, we've come up with a new way to look at diversity in superhero comics - particularly team books. We call it the Harvey/Renee Index.
