UPDATE: The initial release wasn’t clear, it has nothing to do with the X-Men trailer. Story has been updated.
UPDATE 2: The images have been revealed.
When The Amazing Spider-Man 2 screened for press in Los Angeles last week, there was no scene at the end of the credits. Even if there was, though, we wouldn’t have unlocked the true secret because we didn’t know the key. Now you do.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was, many years ago, tied to a Shazam film, to play the villainous Black Adam. He’s also been connected to a big-screen adventure starring the character Lobo. Neither project went anywhere; both have seemed more or less dead in the past couple years. But during his promotion of Hercules, The Rock teased a DC Comics project, and his description sounds like it could be one of those two characters.

In the wake of the uber-massive-success of Marvel’s The Avengers, it wasn’t a huge surprise to hear that Warner Bros. had hired a writer to revive Justice League. They’re DC’s answer to the superhero team and a project has been in various stages of development for several years. The key to The Avengers, though, wasn’t just that it was a good movie. Much of its success was because it was more than a movie. The Avengers was an event with a four year, five film build up that started with Iron Man in 2008. Which begs the question, will Warner Bros. attempt to go the same route or will they jump right into a Justice League movie?
A report from Variety suggests the former. They’ve dug up that in addition to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, the Justice League news, and the Wonder Woman news, Warner Bros. has six other characters at various stages of development. And no, that does not include Green Lantern or Batman, both of which might get rebooted. Read what’s what after the jump. Read More »
