September 9, 2014: Berlanti Confirms "Supergirl" TV Series InvolvementPrint

Supergirl "The Flash" TV series executive producer Greg Berlanti has confirmed that he is indeed involved in a serious attempt to bring a live-action Supergirl series to television, but was unable to share any further details at this early stage in the process.

"We're just starting to work on it," Berlanti said. "We haven't gone to the networks yet, so. I'll be happy, very excited to talk about it once we know where its home will be and that kind of stuff, but not at this moment."

Last week we reported on the news that DC Entertainment are actively pitching a live-action Supergirl TV series, with initial reports claiming that comic book writer and TV producer Michael Green was involved. However we now know that Green is not involved and that Greg Berlanti has teamed with script writer Ali Adler in the hopes of bringing to life a TV series about Kara Zor-El.

September 8, 2014: DCU Signature Series Doomsday Action Figure is Coming!Print

Doomsday Action Figure Mattel has announced that they'll be releasing a Doomsday Unbound action figure as a final farewell to the DCU Signature Series.

    He was never supposed to see the light of day, but when the powers that be saw the amazing mock-up of this bad boy, they were completely blown away. We got the green light, and the Four Horsemen got to work. We're stoked to offer this final figure to fans as we say goodbye to the DCU Signature series.

    When he arrives later this fall, Doomsday will appear as he did in the best-selling DC comic of all time, Superman #75, where this menace from the stars killed the Man of Steel. This fully articulated figure stands 9" tall and in scale to the 6" tall Superman figure. He includes the shredded cape of Superman, which is removable, and arrives in huge window box packaging celebrating the completion of the 6" DCU Signature Series line.

    Check back for all the details when he goes on sale. In the meantime, you've been warned... Doomsday is coming!

We'll let you know when the Doomsday action figure is available for pre-order.

    I give the story of this issue a solid 4. Not only does it wrap up this story arc involving Power Ring, but it also begins a new one with Lex Luthor as a member of the League himself.

    I'm still trying to get used to Lex Luthor playing a hero here, but I think it's going to be a really solid story to not only see Lex as one of the world's greatest heroes, but also to see what happens when he does inevitably betray the League, if in fact that is what happens. I really liked Superman's little monologue at the end of the issue about how when he first appeared in Metropolis, how corrupt and just evil Lex Luthor was. We Superman fans know this from his appearances in Action Comics, Superman Unchained, and Lobdell's Superman run, as well as even Forever Evil to an extent, however here in Justice League all we see him wanting to do is help and be a part of the League.

    Another set up chapter building the story up to a well deserved epic feel. This time we have the roster in the resistance burgeoning and Lex reintroduced after his deal that set everything in motion. I am really enjoying this storyline and just seeing the TV shows heroes banding together along with Season 11 introduced ones is a real treat for audiences new and old. I like that the chapters are weekly but they are so short! I wish we could have SEEN the fight with the Manhunters, for skimming over the Superman action I regretfully dock a point.
