Edmonton City Councilor Says He Wouldn’t Be Opposed To A Wolverine Statue

Wolverine-statue

Metropolis, Illinois, has a Superman statue. Philadelphia has immortalized Rocky in bronze. Detroit has a much-publicized Robocop statue. Why shouldn't Edmonton be home to a statue of its fictional hero, Wolverine?

About 3,000 people have signed a Change.org petition calling for the mayor and city council of the Alberta's capital city to put up a life-size statue of the Marvel superhero in City Hall. At least one city councillor says he isn't opposed to the idea.

Fox News Said Some Incredibly Stupid Bullsh*t About Comics Again [Video]

Fox01

The great thing about Fox News is that it's only Tuesday and you're already about to see the dumbest thing you'll see all week.

In this case, it's a clip from Fox's weekend morning show, where three people with the collective brains of a sack of doorknobs turn their reasoned and well-thought out opinions to the world of comic books. Specifically taking on Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman's upcoming run on Thor, where the iconic Marvel hero will get a new identity as a woman, and complaining about Wonder Woman's costume in the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice film by comparing it to Jim Lee's redesign from four years ago that, according to them, appears to be a product of what they characterize as fundamentalist Sharia Law.

No, really, this dope on the left actually says that.

FINALLY: ‘Beware The Batman’ And The Complete ‘Young Justice’ Season 1 Coming To Blu-Ray

BTB_YJ

Beware the Batman and Young Justice are two examples of animated shows that haven't exactly been treated well. Both Warner Bros. series were unceremoniously pulled from Cartoon Network, only to return to burn off episodes, sometimes in the middle of the night.

Treatment like that would seemingly indicated little commitment to release the series on home video, but never fear, fans. Warner Archive announced this week that it will release the second part of Beware the Batman's first season and the complete first season of Young Justice on Blu-Ray. Along with those, the company will also offer the full second season of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and the classic 1960s Aquaman animated series will be available through Warner Archive's streaming service.

‘Project Greenlight’ Short Film Illustrates The Argument Against Sexist Superheroine Costumes

Untitled-1

Over the past few years, comics fans have been embroiled in a debate over the double standard that applies to superhero costumes. While men's costumes are increasingly depicted as totally functional, women's costumes remain what they've been for decades: skimpy, overtly sexualized, and all too often, anything but what would be practical for the purposes of patrolling the streets and fighting crime.

Filmmaker Luke Patton's short film "Sexy Superhero" faces that debate head-on and makes something really funny out of it.

Supergirl TV Show Leaps To Series In A Single Bound At CBS – What Does It Mean?

Untitled-1

Last week there was talk that a Supergirl TV show was in development from Arrow and Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti. This week CBS has jumped straight to a series order for the show, meaning Supergirl is just about guaranteed to make it to air (or else the network pay a hefty kill fee) -- and we can all start wildly speculating about who they'll cast as the lead and which version of the character will make it to the screen.

‘Deadpool’ Movie Gets Go-Ahead At Fox; Will Ryan Reynolds Finally Make A Decent Comics Movie?

deadpoolscreenshot

Deadpool lives. Marvel's Merc with the Mouth will finally get his own solo movie after years in production limbo according to an announcement by Twentieth Century Fox, which has scheduled the picture for a February 2016 release -- on Valentine's Day weekend, no less. Deadpool is love.

Tim Miller is attached to direct, and Ryan Reynolds is expected to reprise his role from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, though no official deal has been announced. Fox also pushed back its Josh Trank-directed Fantastic Four movie from June 19th 2015 to August 7th, to cover for a Michael Fassbender Assassin's Creed movie that's been bumped off the calendar due to production delays.
