With the first full day of National Fan Expo (actually the second), more people were out on the convention floor showing off their mad skills with a needle and thread, and sometimes plastic, metal and duct tape. Mixed in with the usual zombies and superheroes, were a large number of people wearing the finest gear of Westeros. We also found one Venom and a Carnage, a Tinkerbell, a Xena Warrior Princess, and a bunch of people from anime with their overly elaborate and almost impractical outfits for moving in large crowds. The artistry in some of these costumes is impressive, or in the case of our two cover boys above, you can at least appreciate the workout routine that let’s them get away with wearing so little.

There’s so much pressure on Warner Bros. to catch Marvel in the comic book movie industry that jockeying with them for release dates has lost its effect. Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution for WB explains, “The reality now is there really isn’t a bad week to open a movie.” Warner Bros. updated their DC Comics movie schedule this week, including dates that shoot all the way up to 2020. In a showing of superhuman confidence, the juggernaught film company listed nine as yet untitled projects. In a display of shaky insecurity, WB is still that little brother to Marvel Entertainment that’s always trying to catch up. But this move is more a sign of strength and less of a preoccupation with whatever Marvel is doing. Keep going for more, as we speculate about these mysterious movies. (more…)

The shift in the creative team is part of an overall facelift for the title, with even the storylines changing as they veer away from the Greek myth-centric stories that Azzarello and Chiang told and instead start looking into Diana’s relationship with the Justice League and how it affects her duties with the Amazons.  (more…)

This Just In: The sun is round, people get easily offended on the internet, and there will be a Justice League movie following Batman and Superman: Friendship is Magic; this according to The Wall Street Journal, the acknowledged primary source for nerd news.

To direct Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavil), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and all the other eventual members of the Justice League (who will play Snapper Carr?!?!), Warner Bros. will once again turn to Zack Snyder, the man behind both the Man of Steel and its upcoming sequel as they hope to release the Justice League: Rise of the Superfriends as soon as 2018.  (more…)
