Jared Leto’s gritty ’n grilled take on the Clown Prince of Crime was easily the most controversial part of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. Early photos of Leto’s tatted-up Joker drew heavy criticism from fans and launched a million jokes on social media, where he was compared to everything from a Juggalo to a Hot Topic mascot — and that was before we found out about his wacky on-set “method acting” antics, which permanently cemented his status as a ridiculous human being. But if you thought that version of the Joker was obnoxious, boy do we have some concept art for you.

Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist didn’t truly get rolling until the showrunner assignment of Dexter alum Scott Buck, whose next trip to the MCU is much more Inhuman. The forthcoming ABC IMAX drama has officially set Buck as its own showrunner, possibly necessitating a shift in Iron Fist’s future.
The development and production process for most animated films is often long, leaving us waiting for years between the initial announcement and the finished product. Pixar’s next original film (and the only one on their schedule that isn’t a sequel) is no exception. We first learned about Coco back in 2012, and now, four years later, with a fall 2017 release on the horizon, Pixar’s new film is officially on a roll — Gael Garcia Bernal and Benjamin Bratt have joined the voice cast, and the studio has revealed some intriguing plot details, along with a new piece of concept art.
I've expressed my excitement about Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love plenty of times before. Written by Sarah Vaughn with art by Lan Medina, it's a gothic haunted house story that's simultaneously retro in its tone and progressive in its politics.
DC has provided ComicsAlliance with an exclusive look at Medina's design process for the book, as well as art from both Medina and guest artist Phil Hester.
The Flash has only defined a select number of Earths outside of the 52 we know to exist, but tonight’s winter finale “The Present” will get us up to speed a bit more on Earth-3, home to John Wesley Shipp’s Jay Garrick. Our first clip also confirms that Mark Hamill will reprise his tricky role on that Earth, but as you’ll see, Barry and Jay have bigger problems.
This year, I've been more than a little bit obsessed with TinyCo's mobile superhero management game Avengers Academy. Its cute designs and fun scripts have been a bright light of superheroic fun, and its willingness to feature new and niche characters alongside A-list heavyweights has been a highlight of the gameplay experience.
However, since the game's launch, there have been a number of characters fans have been clamoring to get their hands on, and now it seems a number of them are coming all at once, as Marvel and TinyCo have announced the December event will be themed around A-Force, bringing the likes of Captain Marvel, She-Hulk and Ms. America to the campus.
We’ve a few months yet to see if Marvel’s Iron Fist is up to the task of standing alongside the Netflix Defenders, but an early sneak peek should help tide things over. Meet Danny Rand, Colleen Wing and the Meachums, and check in with Claire with new photos from the March 2017 release.
Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with decades of comics behind, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in comics in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
This week we're taking a look at Robin, the Boy Wonder!
On this day in 1982, the first issue of Akira was published. Written and illustrated by Katsuhiro Otomo, this post-apocalyptic tale was crucial in the popularization of manga outside of Japan.
Paradox Girl is legitimately one of the best comics I've read all year. Focused on a woman (well, a lot of women who are actually the same woman coexisting at the same time at different points in her life) who has the ability to effortlessly teleport herself through time, space, and the comics page, the series takes a premise that's built on the most complicated aspects of time travel stories and delivers on it with a lighthearted fun that seems almost effortless.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign that funded the first three issues, creators Cayti Bourquin and Yishan Li have returned for a crowdfunding campaign to bring readers Paradox Girl #4, 5, and 6. To find out more, ComicsAlliance spoke to Bourquin and editor Peter Bensley about the complexities of telling a story with a nonlinear heroine, and why a superhero story about Stompzillas and time travel is actually about learning to forgive yourself.
