March 30, 2014: WB to Announce "Justice League" Movie SoonPrint

Justice League In a profile piece on new Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara, the NY Times also touches on the expected announcement of a series of films based on the DC Universe of characters, including a Justice League movie...

    As for DC Entertainment, cross-studio collaboration to make better use of its comic book characters appears to have accelerated considerably since Mr. Tsujihara took over, in part because he eliminated some management layers. (He has not named a chief operating officer and did not replace Mr. Rosenblum and Mr. Robinov, choosing instead to divide up their duties and assume some himself.) Two new television shows are coming to the CW and Fox, including one based on the Flash and another on a young Batman, and a film series will be announced in the near future, Mr. Tsujihara said. It is expected to include a "Justice League" movie.

    Underscoring his aggressive approach to the DC Comics universe, Mr. Tsujihara and Dan Fellman, Warner's domestic film distribution chief, recently moved the studio's untitled Batman-Superman movie - a hotly anticipated follow-up to last year's "Man of Steel" - to a release date in May 2016 previously claimed by Marvel for one of its own films. It created an industry dust-up, and Marvel retaliated with a date change of its own. But the move sent a blunt message: Warner takes a back seat to no one.

As for what time frame "the near future" alludes to is anyone's guess.

    This title is a pleasant surprise. This story has lots of great character moments throughout each page. This seems to be Charles Soule's strength as a writer. Tony Bedard does this in Kara's book as well, but he tends to focus more on action and story pacing. All in all, it's a treat to see both scribes handle the character. It will most certainly be interesting to see what they have in store for Supergirl in the months to come.

Released Digitally: March 24, 2014

"Strange Visitor" - Part 3 of 3

Writer: Joe Keatinge
Artist: Tula Lotay and Jason Shawn Alexander
Colorist: Lee Loughridge
Cover Artist: Jon Bogdanove

Reviewed by: Alisa Lea Gossage

    At first, I wasn't sure I liked this ending. It was weird. And who the heck was Anu? But after a couple of re-reads, and after a little bit of research, I understood what Keatinge was trying to convey. Keatinge's tale reminds us that Superman is timeless. And even when the upper echelons of DC get the character wrong, we have the past to go back to, and a future to hope for.

    Also, it was great to see Krypto and a young Clark Kent testing out Clark's powers. And I didn't know Clark's middle name was Joseph. Very cool. Also, if you notice, young Clark looks a lot like Cooper Timberline who played the nine-year old Clark Kent in Man of Steel. He's even wearing the cape Timberline was wearing in the movie. I just love call backs to other Superman lore.
