The Death of Superman trailer

It’s been just over 10 years since DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation tackled the iconic “Death of Superman” comics storyline in an animated film called Superman: Doomsday. It’s only been two years since Doomsday killed Superman in live-action in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and less than a year since the Man of Steel was resurrected in Justice League. But for some reason, they’re going back to that same well again with The Death of Superman, a new animated take on that same story. Check out the latest trailer below.

harley quinn movie

Harley Quinn has had a meteoric rise to the front of Warner Bros.’ DC film slate, becoming the focus of three potential movie projects. And that’s based solely off of Margot Robbie‘s splashy appearance in 2016’s Suicide Squad — and the marketability of the character’s striking costume to the Hot Topic crowd. But while the states of the character’s potential spin-offs — the Joker and Harley Quinn movie, Gotham City Sirens — are still one big question mark, Robbie has been steadfastly pushing a Harley Quinn solo movie for the past few years.

But Harley might not be flying as solo as you would think.

Superman is Immortal in DC Comics Now

Is Superman immortal?

It’s a question that has followed the comic book character for decades. The last survivor of Krypton, Kal-El gains his strength and invulnerability from the Earth’s yellow sun. He’s in peak physical condition, and ages at a far slower rate than the rest of humanity. But does that translate to immortality?

DC Comics finally answers that question. And fittingly, it’s answered in the 1,000th issue of the comic book where Superman was first introduced: Action Comics.

Lobo is a chain-smoking, chain wearing alien bounty hunter who has very niche appeal. So it’s screenwriter Jason Fuchs‘ job to bring the character to a wider audience.

The Wonder Woman writer has his work cut out for him when it comes to writing a Lobo movie, but he won’t try to bring the character to the masses by scrapping everything that makes him, well, him. Instead, like he did with Wonder Woman, Fuchs says he will try to capture the true essence of Lobo. And that means going back to the beginning.

Like so many filmmakers these days, Alex Garland has had his brush with the comic book movie industry. The Ex Machina and Annihilation director was a screenwriter before he made the jump to the director’s chair, and one of the films he penned was the 2012 comic book adaptation Dredd.

But now that he’s starting to gain renown for his work as a director, comic book fans are inevitably clamoring for Garland to make a return to superhero movies. And he’s right there with them. Read More »

metropolis series

It seems like the preferred way to create a Superman prequel series is to name it after a place where he’s lived. Following shows like the popular Smallville and the upcoming SyFy series Krypton, here comes Metropolis, a series from Warner Bros. TV that will premiere on DC’s digital streaming service.

But here’s the catch: Superman is nowhere to be seen. Instead, Metropolis will follow the adventures of Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, inexplicable partners who “investigate the world of fringe science and expose the dark and bizarre secrets of a pre-Superman Metropolis.” Yes, you read that right.
