It’s been teased and now it’s been confirmed by director Zack Snyder: The first preview for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will debut on April 20 only in IMAX theaters at a “special teaser screening event” that will also include an introduction from Snyder. On Twitter, Snyder revealed exactly how to attend the event, and gave a brief taste of what’s to come:

Welcome back to the ComicsAlliance post-show analysis for Agents of SHIELD, the spy show set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is where we break down each episode using our unique S.H.L.E.I.D. recap system — recapping the show, looking at highlights and lowlights, and exploring the show’s relationship to both the comics and the wider Marvel movie world.
This week, Skye learns more about her family, Melinda May learns more about Coulson's secret plans, and we finally find out what happened in Bahrain, and how May earned her nickname "the Cavalry." Hooray, no more oblique Bahraiin references! 'Melinda' was directed by Garry A. Brown and written by DJ Doyle.
A little over an hour ago, it was reported that Warner Bros. was seriously considering Angelina Jolie to replace Michelle MacLaren on Wonder Woman. Although she may have been considered, it looks like the studio is going in another direction — WB has hired Patty Jenkins to direct the Wonder Woman solo film, and if that name sounds familiar, that’s because she was originally attached to direct Thor: The Dark World.
The Walking Dead brings a lot more to the table than endless zombie carnage, but did you know that the AMC horror-drama has given over 10 different names for the dead, without once using the Z-word? What sneaky reference to a canine superhero has Robert Kirkman kept in since the pilot? These are just some of the delicious morsels awaiting you in the second episode of 'You Think You Know TV?,' which aims a crossbow at some fresh facts about The Walking Dead!
With Avengers: Age of Ultron just around the corner, interest in these heroes has never been greater, so we’ve decided to pit all the official comic book Avengers against each other in a battle for your affections. Who is the greatest, best, favorite Avenger of all time? Only you can decide.
We’ve created voting groups that mix up different eras of Avengers membership. The biggest name in Group J is probably Wonder Man, so that gives you an idea where we are in this thing. A third Ant-Man, a second Power Man, and the one and only D-Man help round out the list. The top two or three from each round go through to the next, so vote tactically, but we're not sure there's an obvious favorite this time around!
A little over twenty years ago, a group of creators left the confines of Marvel Comics for the wild world of indies. By forming Image Comics, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Erik Larsen, Todd McFarlane, Marc Silvestri and Jim Valentino set a new precedent for comics.
Of course, the 1990s were a dangerous time for the industry. The speculative market imploded not long after the Image exodus, and the comic market still hasn't recovered all these years later. But we're not here to lament the days of old, when single issues sold in the millions and drawing comics was as big a deal as being in Guns 'N Roses (depending on how many pages Wizard devoted to you in a given month). No, we're here to talk about all the ridiculous action figure lines these Image Comics spawned (heh) that you probably forgot all about.
2015 is truly the year James Spader took over all media.
Not only is the laconic actor portraying the title villain in Avengers: Age of Ultron, he's also making the jump from the screen to the page in Titan Comics' new comics series based on his TV show The Blacklist. The new series, by writer Nicole Phillips and artist Beni Lobel, will start up in July. Alice X. Zhang provides the covers.
You may have missed it, but last week Frank Cho posted an image he'd drawn on a sketch cover of Spider-Gwen in a pose reminiscent of the Milo Manara Spider-Woman cover that drew a lot of negative attention. Many people were grossed out by Cho's drawing, including Spider-Gwen artist Robbi Rodriguez, while others jumped to Cho's defense, like J. Scott Campbell and Rob Liefeld. What began as not that big of a deal turned into the latest hot mess to preoccupy the industry, so let's talk about outrage and complacency in comics.
Rachel Dukes is a cartoonist who has a diverse body of work, including contributions to the Subcultures and Beyond anthologies and a Steven Universe comic, as well as her own self-published Frankie Comics about her cat. Dukes has her first graphic novel, Let Me Walk You Home, coming out through Abrams in the fall.
This weekend’s launch of Marvel’s Netflix series Daredevil was met with resounding success, though the visually impaired quickly noted that the streaming service had not catered the show about a blind superhero to their needs. Now, Netflix has attached a new audio track to its Daredevil release specifically designed for blind audiences, with the intent to add similar tracks to its other original programs.
