dc universe

DC Entertainment has officially unveiled the details of its new digital streaming service, which will go by the name DC Universe.

DC has been hyping up the digital platform since last year, when the comic book company first announced that it would host an array of original shows on its own streaming service. But DC Universe will offer more than just original shows.

dc films plans

Two Joker movies? One and a half Harley Quinn spin-offs? A Ben Affleck-less Batman movie? At this point, we’ve given up trying to make sense of Warner Bros.’ DC Films plans. But newly appointed DC Entertainment film production president Walter Hamada is doing his best to make them sensible once again.

That includes seemingly rebooting much of the DC Extended Universe, and potentially launching a new label to encompass the multiple standalone and off-universe films that Warner Bros. has in the works. Because that will make people less confused over both Jared Leto and Joaquin Phoenix playing the Joker.

LEGO DC Super Villains Video Game

DC Comics fans are still hoping that the DC Extended Universe will be able to repair itself after Justice League didn’t really deliver the goods they were hoping for. Their next chance will be James Wan’s first solo big screen outing for Aquaman, but that won’t arrive until December. Thankfully, there’s some DC Comics fun coming this fall that should help keep fans occupied.

Warner Bros. Games has announced LEGO DC Super-Villains, a new video game following in the footsteps of their LEGO games featuring Marvel and DC Comics superheroes in large open world environments. Except this time, in case you couldn’t tell, the focus is on the villains of the DC Comics universe, and they’re facing a different kind of threat than the usual Justice League line-up. Read More »

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

superman immortal

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.

alex garland swamp thing movie

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.
