new52justiceleaguedarkseidmain-1321297118

If a rumor from The Wrap reporter Jeff Snider is to be believed, Marvel Studios and DC Entertainment could soon have competing, craggy-faced, evil space gods appearing in their films very soon.

Thanos has already made one appearance in a Marvel film, and his voice actor for Guardians of the Galaxy, Josh Brolin has been announced. Now, Snider reports that none other than Darkseid, the seeker of Anti-Life and the villain that simply "is," will be the big bad of the planned Justice League film, which is said to be coming out in May 2017.

Report: DC To Unveil Hugely Ambitious Movie Plans Through 2018 At San Diego Comic-Con, Including ‘Wonder Woman’

Untitled-1

We all know that Marvel Studios has its movies planned out through 2028 (not an exaggeration, a real date 14 years in the future), but what about DC Entertainment? All we've heard so far is a set date for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (May 2016, pushed back from summer 2015) and some nebulous stuff about a Justice League movie, a Justice League Dark movie and some other projects.

Well, according to entertainment reporter Nikki Finke's website, things may get a whole lot clearer at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Finke has was she says is DC and Warner Bros.' movie schedule (though "a lot is in flux") through May 2018.

And it includes a solo Wonder Woman movie.

A Touching Cast Photo From The Justice League Movie That Never Was

Justice League Mortal Movie Cast George Miller

Greg Van Borssum, a stuntman on the upcoming Mad Max reboot Fury Road, posted a photo to his Facebook page last month that offers a previously unseen glimpse of the cast and crew of the never-made 2008 Justice League movie.

Justice League: Mortal was meant to film in 2008 under George Miller, co-writer and director of the Mad Max franchise, including Fury Road. Justice League: Mortal never began filming, possibly because of the Writers Guild Strike of 2007-2008, but the photo reveals that Miller at least got as far as bringing his cast together.

Comics Alliance Presents The Harvey/Renee Index of Superhero Diversity

Untitled-1391

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.

DC Comics And General Mills Bring Comics Back To Breakfast

General Mills DC Comics

My breakfast these days usually consists of a cup of coffee and that feeling of crushing despair that comes from a new Funky Winkerbean strip, so I'll freely admit that I might not be eating as healthfully as I probably should. It's just that I don't have time, you understand -- if I were to sit down with a bowl of cereal, there might be a few minutes at the start of my day where I wasn't thinking about comics.

Now, General Mills -- who I am reliably informed is not a new militaristic windmill-themed supervillain, which really seems like a missed opportunity -- has set out to correct that deficiency with its second teamup with DC Comics since 2011. Starting this month and running 'til the end of April, cereals like Honey Nut Cheerios and Trix are going to come bundled with new comics about the Justice League. And the thing is, they actually look really fun.

Justice League Custom Comic Somehow Features Shaquille O’Neal And Steel In The Same Room At The Same Time

NBA Justice League

The NBA All-Star Game is today, meaning the best players in the world have gathered together to do dozens of interviews, hang out for a bit, and then play a game with absolutely no defense unless it turns out to be close in the final 3 minutes. It's a good time.

It also means there is ample opportunity for every manner of product placement and cross promotion, and comics were almost certainly going to get in on the action. This time it's in the form of a custom comic, as the Justice League visit the set of Inside The NBA to hang out with Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal. But the team who put this comic together made one embarrassing gaffe: Shaquille O'Neal and Steel are seen in the same room at the same time, and we all know that's impossible, as they are the same man.

Why The Problem With Kids And Comics Goes Way Beyond That Powerpuff Girls Cover

Powerpuff Girls

For the past week, a debate over a variant cover to IDW's Powerpuff Girls #6 has raged on the internet, seemingly dividing people into a "it's sexual and kids shouldn't see it" camp and "it's harmless and you're gross for thinking it's gross" camp.

The chief spokesman for the former camp, Dennis Barger, Jr. of WonderWorld Comics in Michigan, said the cover sexualized young girls and was just not appropriate for children, who are the future of the comics industry. He's got a point, but whether it's the Powerpuff Girls cover he should be going after is debatable.
