Announced in April, the DC Super Hero Girls line was a bold statement by Warner Bros. about its commitment to reaching out to all demographics of the market, and very specifically, young girls. While initially revealed as a partnership between Warners and companies like Mattel, Random House, and Lego, there hadn't been many details revealed about what form and shape DC Super Hero Girls would take beyond vague promises of apparel, toys, animations and books. Today, Warner Bros. and DC broke the silence (via USA Today) to tease a bit more about what to expect from the upcoming girl-focused line.

Back in November, a weird poster that seemed to promote a Wonder Twins movie starring Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher popped up in a few comic shops. As photos of the poster spread around the comics Internet, a lot of folks wondered what it was all about.
The odds of a real, but not-yet-announced Wonder Twins movie coming out in 2014 were low, at best, but could it be a piece of viral marketing for something else? Maybe the Entourage movie, given that the HBO series had gone swimming in DC's waters with Aquaman? It turns out, according to an interview with BatPodcast host Pat Evans on Bill the Boy Wonder author Marc Tyler Nobleman's blog, that the people that guessed it was a Warner Bros. hoax were half right. It's definitely a hoax, but WB had nothing to do with it.
During the announcement of the upcoming Superman/Batman movie at this summer's San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that Henry Cavill would reprise his role as Superman, but we were all left wondering who would play the Dark Knight. The mystery is over, as The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Ben Affleck has been cast to play Batman in the Warner Bros. film.
