It’s been a really rough time for Sony as the studio’s e-mails and sensitive materials have been hacked by a mysterious group, and confidential details have been leaking left and right. The latest pieces of information picked up from Sony’s hacked internal e-mails have to do with Spider-Man—a character that’s in a bit of flux right now as Sony has been trying to sort out what to do next following the critical and commercial disappointment of ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2.’ As it turns out, Sony has indeed spoken with Marvel about a potential crossover, and that’s not all they’ve been planning to salvage the character.

With long runs on hit titles like Captain America, Daredevil, Sleeper, Fatale, Criminal and more, writer Ed Brubaker has cemented his position as one of the most prominent writers in American comics, and he got his start with superheroes with Batman. After being brought in from the world of crime comics to write the Batman comics in 2000, Brubaker rose to prominence with his work on Gotham City's heroes, including cowriting the seminal Gotham Central, relaunching Catwoman with a critically acclaimed and influential new direction, and retelling the first encounter between Batman and the Joker.

I'm not really a beer drinker, but that has never stopped any of my friends who do enjoy the bitter taste of malt and hops from trying to convince me to give it a shot. "Oh, this one's pretty sweet, it's like chocolate" they'll say, giving me something that doesn't taste anything like a milkshake, or "it's an acquired taste." I have never acquired it, but really, if they actually wanted to get me interested in beer, they should've probably told me there's one out there that comes with a story by two dudes who did that issue of Ghost Rider about demonic truckers.
That, at least, is the strategy currently being employed by Chicago's Arcade Brewery, who have released a new six-pack called Festus Rotgut Black Wheat Ale, in which the labels tell a six-part story by Jason Aaron and Tony Moore.
The rumors that ‘Game of Thrones’ star Jason Momoa would be joining the DC Cinematic Universe as Aquaman flooded the Internet long before Ben Affleck was cast as Batman. When Momoa’s casting was made official through an announcement a few months, the news was greeted with a shrug. We already knew the worst kept secret in superhero moviedom!

We did it, everyone! First 'Smallville' took us back to a teenage Clark Kent's evolution into the Man of Steel, then 'Gotham' explored the origin's origins of a prepubescent Batman.

Every week or so it seems that we’ve been reporting on more cast, character, and plot additions to ‘Batman vs. Superman,’ a film that we’re starting to assume is at least four hours long—which is why the latest report regarding Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero showdown film is pleasantly surprising. As it turns out, there will be at least one major Batman character (no, not Bruce Wayne’s parents) who is already dead when this movie begins.
Star Wars icon Mark Hamill will soon reprise one of his most legendary roles, and we’re not talking about Luke Skywalker. The Force Awakens star will return to different roots for The CW’s The Flash in an upcoming episode, reprising his role from the 1990s CBS series as DC villain The Trickster, but with a tricky twist!
Like pretty much everyone else who read it, I loved Joe Kelly and Ken Niimura's I Kill Giants, and ever since I read it, I've been wondering when I'd see more from Niimura. Now, I know, and it's pretty good news!
