You Will Wish You Could Watch the Batman Movie in This Flawless Mashup Trailer

We often joke about how much we'd like to watch the many, many movies we've seen imagined by fan trailers, but this is one that we're truly disappointed isn't a real thing. It's not that we'd like the entire Batman movie franchise to be overtaken by an "it's all in his head" premise, but just one, outside of any other movie canon, would make for a nice alternate universe "what if?" departure from the straightforward takes we usually get.

DC Has No Idea What We Love About Wonder Woman, Introduces New Comic Arc About Diana’s Brother

No one wants this.

Oh, good. Because the audiences so enamored by Wonder Woman–the ones talking and tweeting about the character nonstop, buying up merch, and seeing the new movie in record-breaking numbers–they've all been saying the same thing, right? We can all agree on the one thing missing from her story: a central male superhero figure. Isn't that what we've been asking for? (Spoiler: It's not.)

New Powerless Promo Brings the Hilarity & Connections to the Rest of the DC Universe

"You seriously can't tell the difference between a bird and a plane?"

OK, so I was a little bit skeptical when talking about the first promo for NBC's upcoming DC show, Powerless. However, after seeing the most recent one, which shows just how connected this new comedy will be to the DC characters we know and love, I'm starting to get really jazzed!

Interview: Mariko Tamaki and Joëlle Jones Focus More On the “Girl” and Less On the “Super” In Supergirl: Being Super

I've become obsessed with all things Supergirl. However, as much as I love Kara, I've often felt that, because of the circumstances of her backstory she, unlike her cousin Clark, has often felt even less human, as lots of attention has been paid to the fact that the character left Krypton as a teenager, and so feels the separation from her homeworld more. Supergirl: Being Super gives us a different Kara Danvers entirely.

Wonder Woman’s Amazons Finally Getting An Origin of Their Own — How Much Does Who Creates It Matter?

DC recently announced a Wonder Woman prequel series that will explore the history of the Amazons, which sounds pretty sweet. Less sweet is the fact that a female comics creator pitched a Wonder Woman prequel series a while back, never heard a response about it, only to hear the news that one was not only happening, but that it was happening based on a pitch from a male writer.

The Art of DC Comics Bombshells Proves That “Sexy” and “Powerful” Aren’t Mutually Exclusive, and Neither Need Be “Exploitative”

Bombshells get it right where others get it wrong.

A month later than we expected, but well worth the wait, The Art of DC Comics Bombshells is finally hitting stores at the end of this month! Flipping through it, I was struck by the notion that through this line of statuettes, artwork, and comics, we have an entire collection of scantily-clad, pin-up heroines...that don't bother me. That I actually find empowering. So, what's the difference between these heroines and Spider-Woman as depicted by, oh I don't know, Milo Manara?
