On Friday, a rumor cropped up that one of the new Batmobile vehicles had been stolen in Detroit. The story wasn’t verified, but it did end up at a couple bigger news outlets. Because who can resist the phrase “stolen Batmobile”? Thankfully it was all just a rumor, but the story did give Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder a reason to pull together some of the minor resources at his disposal for a great photo op.

For a movie called Godzilla, this summer’s Godzilla didn’t actually show a whole lot of Godzilla. Indeed, he doesn’t even get a close-up until about 60 minutes into the film, by one count. Which is fine if you like the rest of the movie, but kind of a disappointment if all you wanted to see was the monster. Fortunately, there’s a fix for that now.
An enterprising YouTube user has cut together a video of all of the Godzilla scenes in Godzilla. If you’re a fan of the bulbous behemoth, you might as well check it out — it’ll only take about eight minutes of your time. Watch the video after the jump.

With Guardians of the Galaxy topping box-office tallies so far in 2014, you can be sure that other studios are looking at their options for new space-based action films. There are some obvious ones in development including Star Wars and Star Trek, but what about studios that don’t already have franchises going? The latest rumor is that Warner Bros. is in the early stages of development on a Legion of Super-Heroes movie.
The Legion is a long-running DC hero team that could, in a very (very) loose manner be considered the equivalent of the Guardians. The team has appeared in decades of comics through several big reboots, and also has a presence in animation, and even live-action via Smallville. Just as the Guardians and Avengers are potentially going to be in opposition with Thanos, the Legion has a solid history with Darkseid, the Jack Kirby character who actually inspired Thanos.

On one hand, the way in which WB and DC have been outpacing theatrical films with TV show development is surprising. Think about it for a moment, however, and it makes sense. The stakes are lower. Stories aren’t overthought. Hell, with a full season of TV to play with, shows might not be fully conceptualized from the start at all. Movies seem like monolithic artifacts; they’re juggernauts when it comes to defining pop culture. A TV series, especially one considered to be lighter entertainment, is perhaps a bit easier.
And so, despite the fact that the 2011 attempt to make a Wonder Woman show failed, and the second iteration, Amazon, has stalled, DC has managed to follow Smallville with Arrow, and will soon offer The Flash, Gotham, and Constantine on television. (We’ll see how it goes with that last one.)
Now there’s a Supergirl show in development, too. That’s the good news. The bad news is that it’s pretty early on, and there’s no title, with producers reportedly considering stuff such as Super and Girl. Look beyond that, however, and hope for the best. More info on the new Supergirl TV series follows. Read More »
