It’s October 28th already, and you don’t have a Halloween costume. But worry not, because we’ve got your back.
What's with the name?

I feel like if Wonder Woman were real, she’d be like, “Can you stop fussing about a movie? I’ve got people to save.” But she’s not real, so we’re fussing. Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara said spoke about the lack of a Wonder Woman movie recently but also touched on the return of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter property to the big screen and Gravity.READ MORE

When DC and CW announced that they would pursue a The Flash television series that not only drew on the success of current CW offering Arrow, but took place in the same universe, certain questions arose. If Arrow does take place in the same universe as the new Flash series, how will the show runners deal with the relatively super-powerless world of Arrow? Why did the CW put Amazon, their planned Wonder Woman show, on hold for the new Flash series? Will Arrow and the new Flash show cross over at any point after The Flash gets his own show? Well, two of these questions now have answers, thanks to Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim.

I have a good friend. His name is Alan Kistler. We do a podcast together called “Crazy Sexy Geeks” but he’s also a comic book historian and prolific writer online and in print (Doctor Who: A History, The Unofficial Batman Trivia Challenge). He and I speak quite often about superhero films and television productions, and you can bet Wonder Woman is a hot topic. Joss Whedon was going to make a Wonder Woman movie. It didn’t happen. David E. Kelley tried to make a television show. It didn’t happen. And while there is a new TV series in the works at The CW, many Wonder Woman fans are patiently waiting for her to emerge on the big screen. But Hollywood is convinced her story is too complicated to tackle. Kistler thinks otherwise.

The New York Times had the honor of debuting the cover to Neil Gaiman and J.H. Williams III’s The Sandman: Overture #1. It will be available on October 30th and help usher in six new titles at DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint. The six-issue mini-series will be published every other month with a special edition of the same issue published in between. NYT says it “will include more of the artwork (because of translucent word balloons developed by the letterer Todd Klein), as well as behind-the-scenes commentary and character sketches.”

Generally, I’m a big believer in looking at things for what they are, and Man of Steel perhaps deserves a recap of the context many of us walked in with. After all, a production that went from zero to shooting in record time is not one to inspire confidence in an audience. It’s an inauspicious start to come off of a previous franchise flop, all while admitting that the entire reason for your movie’s existence is an effort to retain licenses over an origin story and character contrary to a twenty year old court decision. With that in mind, to say that some may be disappointing implies that there was a high mark set up to hit, and there just wasn’t, no matter how good they got at cutting those trailers to a swelling soundtrack. Careful consideration is not something Man of Steel had time for, along with perhaps a few more re-writes. And so, quite expectedly, what you end up with is what we’ve got; a lot of sound, little fun, and plenty of fury, all of which, ultimately, signifies not much.

Syfy’s Face Off is one of my favorite shows. I’ve always been interested in movie makeup but didn’t have the skill to make it a career plus, the show isn’t overly dramatized like most reality TV these days. They premiered the fourth season last night and while I’ve yet to watch the episode, we’ve just found out some people we’re very familiar with will be making a guest appearance in a few weeks – employees of DC Comics. Find out if your favorite creator will be giving their artistic input to the contestants after the cut.READ MORE

Vertigo Comics has been the more serious, adult oriented arm of DC Comics since 1993 and at the very start was Karen Berger. Getting Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman published was just one of this editor’s countless accomplishments at the company, you can also put Hellblazer and V for Vendetta in that group, so it’s with a great deal of disappointment we must report she’s leaving the DC Entertainment altogether.READ MORE

You’ve seen them on Tumblr, Etsy, DeviantArt, etc. – amazingly artistic images you’d love to hang on your wall, featuring your favorite DC Comics characters. Fans have wished DC would get behind the idea and sell similar items for a while now. Well, it seems they’ve finally heard us. DC Comics have begun selling a range of archival prints, previously sold at the C2E2 convention in Chicago, in their DC Collectibles shop. They lean towards the minimalist approach (something we appreciate on this site) but also cover art deco, classic illustration, theater posters and more. Take a look at what they’ve got to offer.READ MORE
