  1. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU WATCH THE BATMAN v SUPERMAN TEASER TRAILER TEASER

    Stahp.

    Please do not watch the Batman v Superman teaser trailer teaser. We implore you.

  2. How It Should Have Ended Discusses Superhero Movies, the Oscars, Reboots

    Watch it for the ending. Trust us.

    I think my favorite thing about the HISHE YouTube channel is that over time, it's slowly evolved from a series of gimmicky movie parodies to what basically amounts to a superhero-themed episode of Seinfeld. Which I think makes Batman George? Yeah, Batman is totally George. Anyway, check out this edition of Super Café where they basically talk about nothing and it's the best thing ever.

  5. Ming Doyle, Erica Henderson and Other Comics Artists Give Us the Genderblended DC Movie Universe We Always Wanted

    *make grabby hands*

    It began simply, when Ming Doyle posted this fabulous depiction of Sigourney Weaver as Bruce Wayne. But if you're going to give Tumblr an art prompt (draw DC comics characters as played by famous movie stars of a different gender), you better be prepared to give it a glass of milk to go with it. I mean... for the art explosion that happens next.

  6. The Secret to Superman Stories is NOT Super-Flare

    (Though Super-Flare IS fun!)

    Last week, Superman developed a new super-power. Sort of. This ability, which Batman calls "super-flare," is an extension of heat-vision, expelling the solar energy in Superman's body in one destructive blast, then leaving him powerless for about twenty-four hours. There have been several who have suggested that such a power is good because it is the key to making Superman more interesting and more human.

  7. Amy Adams Promises: No Super/Wondy/Lane Love Triangle, and Other Script Details From Batman v Superman

    "And then I said 'There's the door, spaceman.'" "Classic!"

    It's a rough life, hoping for a greater presence for female characters in superhero movies. So it's not particularly surprising that folks can find potential sooty interiors to any silver lining, namely, that now that Superman and Wonder Woman are an item in comics, it might mean that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will release with a healthy helping of that tired trope of female competition over a man.

  8. David Goyer, Syfy Developing Superman Origin Story; Teen Titans Pilot To Start Filming Next Year

    "It's not an 'S.' On my world it means ‘stop.’"

    After promising to focus on actual sci-fi programming and cut down on the shark-based weather phenomena, Syfy is about to bring audiences the most explosive television event of the decade: a David S. Goyer-developed drama about Superman's grandpa.

  9. Wonder Woman’s New 52 Origin Should Not Be Used in Film (or At All)

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice producer Charles Roven says they'll be using Wonder Woman's DC Comics' "New 52" reboot origin rather than the story imagined by her original writer and creator William Moulton Marston. I think using the New 52 origin in general, much less in these films, is a mistake which diminishes the character and goes against why she was created in the first place.

  10. Nic Cage/Tim Burton Superman Details Put Supes in Therapy, and I’m Kind of Into It

    Nicholas Cage: Good or Bad?

    You think Man of Steel was moody? How about Superman in therapy because he doesn't know where his powers come from and he just wants to fit in. It sounds like the never-realized Tim Burton Superman movie was about one step away from being titled Superman: You Can't Tell Me What to Do You're Not Even My Real Dad!

  11. DC Wonderfully Responds To Those Terrible Superman/Wonder Woman & Batman Shirts

    Well, that's a nice start.

    Say what you want about DC Comics and their various and sundry public marketing snafus, but they're getting much, much better at quickly and graciously addressing fan concerns and apologizing for their involvement. Which, I guess they kind of had to when you think about it. Still, credit where it's due, guys.

  12. But Why, Though? DC’s New Licensed T-Shirts Suggest Some Terrible Things About Women

    Must be a day of the week ending in "Y."

    It's Monday and we can only spend so many brain cells being frustrated with DC's marketing and licensing department on a regular basis, so let's try to ease you slowly into the annoyance you're about to feel. Here is the good news: they made a shirt designed for young female wearers, and another shirt for men that has Wonder Woman on it! Let's just bask in that vague knowledge for a second before actually looking at the shirts and aaaaaargh.

  13. Six Flags Admits Female Superheroes Exist In Their New Justice League Commercial

    I'll still take a Themyscira ride though.

    It's been a long time since I visited a Six Flags park, but I always loved their Warner Bros. rides. As it turns out, they're introducing a new 3D ride in Texas and Missouri soon called Justice League: Battle for Metropolis, and it features some of DC Comics' women!

  16. Dorkly Reminds Us Of That One Time Batman And Superman Had To Share a Single Bed

    IT HAPPENED, INTERNET.

    Yeah, sure, the Dorkly article that this is from is actually about the most embarrassing fights between the caped crusader and the son of Krypton, but all of that when flew right the window faster than a speeding bullet when we laid our eyes on this delightful fanfiction trope come to (comic) life. Look at them. Look at their angry faces. JUST SPOON ALREADY YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO.

  17. The Second Full Trailer For The Death Of Superman Lives Is Here, And It’s Crazy

    Still nothing as weird as the missing "s" in Batman v Superman. I'm never gonna let it go, Snyder.

    This second trailer for the fan-backed documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? has some breathtakingly weird details about the Nic Cage-starring, Tim Burton-directed, Kevin Smith-penned movie that never was. Long-haired Cage in a fluorescent bubble suit? Check. Multiple doomsday scenarios? Double check. Kevin Smith's requisite giant spiders? Hoo boy. We were not worthy.

  20. Dorkly Suggests the “Simplest” Way to End the Batman v Superman Debate

    No Kryptonite required.

    Yeah, sure, the solution proposed in this Dorkly comic sort of works. But really, Superman's only treating the symptom and not the disease. What's gonna happen when somebody else tragically resorts to a life of crime on the mean streets of Gotham and goes after the Wayne family, Clark? You gonna go back in time and fix the extreme social disparities made possible by flagrant abuse of a capitalist system, too?
