Enjoy this sneak peek at Justice League: Throne of Atlantis. It looks like we’ll get an awesome Aquaman movie.
Alongside the announcement that Batman v Superman will be arriving in theaters two months early, Warner Bros. just dropped a big bomb on DC Comics fans waiting for more characters to get the silver screen treatment.
Geoff Johns has hinted at the possible return of Darkseid, The King of Apokolips. Johns, DC’S Chief Creative Officer and Writer of Justice League since its New52 debut has always had long-term plans in building something really important from issue 1.
*Spoiler Alert* If you haven’t finished reading Forever Evil, at the end of the Event, the Anti-Monitor made his first New52 appearance,…
Batman. Batman Batman Batman Batman. Batman.
Oh, sorry, I was just going over the DC Comics marketing plan. As announced at the San Diego Comic Con, we’re getting more animated Batman movies.
Batman: Assault on Arkham, based on the Batman: Arkham Asylum videogame series, is coming out August 12th, but that’s not all.
Batman vs. Robin, which will adapt the Grant Morrison storyline and will be part of DC’s Animated Cinematic Universe, is confirmed for 2015, as well as Justice League: Gods and Monsters, an “original story written and directed by Bruce Timm" and highly likely to also feature Batman, will also hit stores in 2015. No word on if Gods and Monsters will be part of the DCACU.
Also under development is Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, which will heavily feature Aquaman and will be part of the DCACU.
It’s now been confirmed: Aquaman, played by Jason Momoa, is going to be in Batman v Superman: Dawn of
Stupid Names Justice.
Which character do you think will be next, since it’s obvious the entire Justice League is going to be in this movie (with confirmed casting now of Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg)?
If this is DC Comics’ movie lineup, as is rumored, it’s insane.
• May 2016 – Batman v Superman
• July 2016 – Shazam
• Xmas 2016 – Sandman
• May 2017 – Justice League
• July 2017 – Wonder Woman
• Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
• May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2
Definitely making up for the gap between DC movies prior to Man of Steel, if this really is the case. We’ll know more next month.
DC Comics and Warner Bros. have confirmed that a Justice League movie will be coming right after Batman vs. Superman. Could’ve fooled us, since the whole League looks like it’ll be in B vs S.
Let’s just call it Justice League and get it over with, OK?
Forever Evil Finale Delayed
Today, DC announced that the finale of Forever Evil (#7), Nightwing #30 (series finale as well) and Justice League #29 have been delayed from their initial release dates from later this month. Delayed how much you may ask? Two months. Two whole months. Tell you what. This better be a damn good issue.
Forever Evil started in September and has slowly been coming out roughly once a month. It hasn’t been the most exciting event, but the last couple issues were pretty good and I’ve been looking forward to the finale and how things change in it. Now they’re just drawing out the agony. But here’s the thing: I can tell you what happens in the end.
Technically, he’s already dead. Having died at the end of issue six after Lex killed him to save everyone else. Now, Lex might be able to save him, but probably not. Ever since issue one it’s felt like a waiting game until Dick’s death. There’s one more issue of Nightwing’s series (not written by Kyle Higgins, who has written the book since issue one). Unless they have some super mega change in store planned for Dick, he’s probably dead, with Bruce and Lex unable to save him and the last issue is the memorial issue.
I mean, I would love to be wrong. I would love for Dick Grayson to show up somewhere else, but for now I don’t see anything referencing Dick at all in the solicits or any other preview or news. This could be well kept spoilers, but how good is DC at keeping things under wraps? Pretty poor if you ask me. No my friends, I believe it’s best to brace yourselves for the inevitable. Dick Grayson is going to die.
Personally this really annoys me as a fan. There are currently three characters that I follow in the New 52. Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon, and Kate Kane. In two months, I’ll be down to two. Seriously DC (and by DC I mean Dan DiDio).
A further dive into forums reveal a rumor of a Nightwing and Bluebird (Harper Row) book in June. Nothing concrete, but perhaps a bit of hope. But perhaps not. Either way, this two month delay is going to be killer.
The delay for Justice League is easier to explain. That’s when Lex joins the League after his actions in Forever Evil.
See you in two months.

Future Green Lantern of Earth Announced
Girl Power! Did I speak to soon? My apologies, it’s been announced though that there will be a…
You first saw her during Geoff Johns’ Green Lantern finale issue, and now it’s official: Earth’s next Green Lantern is a woman.
Remember our story from earlier this week where Stephen Amell commented that he’d had discussions about appearing in a Justice League movie?
Now he says he was misquoted, and he’s pretty angry about it.
