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. Group H includes a couple of captains, some ex-villains (including a Doom?), a Jack and a knight, and one of Magneto's kids (don't believe the retcons). The top two or three Avengers from each group will go through to the next round, so vote tactically. Or just vote for Carol. We're pretty sure you're going to vote for Carol.
DC’s foothold in the TV game got exponentially bigger with the potential for yet another Arrow spinoff for The CW, but FOX too is making strides toward its comic future. Following the pilot greenlight of Neil Gaiman Sandman spinoff Lucifer, FOX has appointed Rush star Tom Ellis as our new Prince of Darkness.
The DC foothold on TV isn’t losing traction anytime soon, as now that CBS Supergirl has her pilot marching orders, so too does FOX’s Lucifer series, derived from Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman series, now have a greenlight. Not only that, but Jerry Bruckheimer and Len Wiseman have been added to the talent pool bringing Lucifer to the screen.
In my online discussions of transgender representation in media, I’ve mentioned that I expect a degree of transphobia is every medium I read, watch or listen to. That’s simply how pervasive the problem is -- and it may take the form of a joke, an off-the-cuff remark, or a non-essential character created intentionally or unintentionally to perpetuate stereotypes about gender variance or utilizing gender variance to underline said character’s psychosis.
It’s with a heavy heart I’m forced to discuss this long-standing media trope within the context of Batgirl, the one area of geek life I considered to be a safe-zone. Within the pages of Batgirl #37 we come across an impostor posing as Batgirl who ultimately plans to kill her in order to assume her identity. As you might imagine, my eyes nearly rolled into the back of my head, accompanied by an aggravated sigh, when the would-be murderer was revealed to be an individual assigned male at birth.
At a presentation to investors on Wednesday morning, Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara unveiled his studio's blockbuster movie slate for the next few years through to 2020, finally confirming the titles for an ambitious number of movies based on DC Comics superhero properties.
The announcement confirms that we will finally see a long-awaited Wonder Woman movie in 2017. Gal Gadot will reprise the role after 2016's Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The announcement also includes the expected Justice League movie -- and a sequel -- the previously announced Suicide Squad movie, and pictures starring Justice League members Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, and Cyborg. This means DC now has one superhero movie in the works with a female lead, and three with non-white leads.
If there's one thing we've learned from our years on the Internet, it's that there's no aspect of comics that can't be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of ten. And since there's no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we're taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
This week, we're kicking off October's spoooooky celebrations with a list of five comic book villains who are actually, genuinely terrifying. Check it out, but beware -- it gets scary!
Each weekday, ComicsAlliance brings you a carefully selected variety of links from around the web about comics and comics-related media, including movies, video games, toys, and whatever else might be worth noting. Quite frankly, these are items you may just need to know about to have a productive day. Take a look at today's hand-picked links after the jump.
Graphic novels and comics are the focus of this year's Banned Books Week, which starts up September 21, and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is getting a head start on the festivities with its new handbook for the occasion, which features a cover by Bone writer/artist Jeff Smith.
The CBLDF's Banned Books Week Handbook not only offers up a list of a few comics that have been banned in US schools and libraries -- including Bone, Fun Home, Watchmen, Sandman, Blankets, and Persepolis -- and the reasons why, but also debunks some of myths surrounding banned books.
Diamond Select Toys unveiled a surprising amount of new Minimates and other figures this past weekend at C2E2 2014 in Chicago. Filling DST's booth were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minimates we saw at Toy Fair 2014 (but couldn't shoot at the time), along with the AllNew X-Men centric Marvel Minimates Series 59, an upcoming 8" Retro Captain America figure, and an upcoming Spider-Man villains Minimates box set.
