Batman VS Superman

Captain America, Batman and Superman are still on a collision course set for box office destruction.

When the news was announced, everyone assumed one of these films would quickly choose a new spot in the schedule. So which studio is going to change their tune? Well, Marvel just made their release date official, setting it in stone. Maybe WB will wise up and move Bats and Supes to another spot? Not so, says Dan Fellman, the president of domestic distribution for Warner Bros.

While we unfortunately still don’t know what the Batman vs. Superman Batsuit is going to look like, we might have a more clear idea of what Ben Affleck is going for, physique-wise.

They were ours before they were theirs. We will always have that attachment, and so when that day comes that this new person wants to take our kids away, it hits us hard.

I am not allowed to watch Father of the Bride 2 while writing an article ever again. (more…)

Fanboys, “insiders”, and rumor mongers have mentioned him as a possible candidate for such characters as Green Lantern, Black Adam, Martian Manhunter, Gravedigger, and Lex Luthor.

Johnson was in Las Vegas at CinemaCon promoting his upcoming film, Hercules: The Thracian Wars, and he took the time to address the question of which, if any, DC character he might be in serious negotiations to portray on the big or small screen:  (more…)

I don’t know about you all but I’m sick of the renumbering of books and the reboots. Instead of changing book numbers to get new readers in, why don’t the big boys just title/number their story arcs? (more…)

Running through this Thursday at New York City’s massive Javits Center, the 2014 Toy Fair is nothing short of nirvana for anyone who spends their days dreaming of action figures and other wonderful playthings. The annual event is the definitive gathering spot for industry execs, retailers, journalists and bloggers to learn about everything new in the world of toys.  On Sunday, I had the opportunity to visit Toy Fair and check out what the major retailers — with the notable exception of Mattel and Lego, who never responded to our press requests, snobs — would be rolling out for the rest of this year and beyond. From the jaw-dropping to the unbelievably goofy, here’s my rundown of the best and worst that this year’s event had to offer. (more…)
