Open Fan Letter to Warner Bros. Regarding Their Future of DC Films

Dear Warner Bros.,

Here we are on the cusp of a new year. Justice League (Jl) is still struggling at the box office, trying to recoup the heavy financial losses, while fans are left wondering what will happen next. WB and DC use to be at the top of the superhero genre with such great classic films like Superman (‘78) and Batman (‘89), each of which had a successful sequel...and not so successful proceeding films. If anything can be learned from these past films, chasing possible viewer trends is risky, and putting nipples on the batsuit was a horrible idea. However, as we move forward into a new year all I have to say is, hold on! Even though Jl is not the box office hit you hoped it would be there are plenty of silver linings to be found within the catalog of DC characters and the Dceu as a whole.

Batman #1

Story: Tom King Art: David Finch, Matt Banning Colors: Jordie Bellaire

Review: Tom King wastes little time picking the action from where Batman: Rebirth left off. A terrorist with a rocket launcher is loose in Gotham and Batman needs to track him down before something really bad happens! Unfortunately, that's exactly what unfolds leading to the Dark Knight having to go head to head with a dive bombing B757 to save Gotham! To complicate matters further, two new heroes show up going by the names 'Gotham' and 'Lady Gotham,

James Ellis obituary

Actor who played Bert Lynch in BBC police drama Z-Cars and appeared in shows ranging from Doctor Who to Nightingales

The actor James Ellis (also known as Jimmy), who has died aged 82, was the longest-serving original cast member of the hugely popular BBC television series Z-Cars. When Z-Cars began in 1962, it represented a major change in the way the police were characterised in fiction. The BBC police series Dixon of Dock Green had been running for seven years, with Jack Warner playing the understanding, avuncular police constable Dixon. Z-Cars, by contrast, had the actors Stratford Johns and Frank Windsor making cynical remarks about the death of a murdered police colleague whose funeral they were attending, and Ellis, as Constable Bert Lynch, hearing from a colleague how he beats up his wife, without doing anything about it. Z-Cars attempted to show how moral anarchy in the rundown industrial area of the

'Justice League Dark': 5 Supernatural Heroes For Consideration

by Ryan Rigley

While nothing further has been revealed about the in-development "Justice League" film, Guillermo Del Toro's "Justice League Dark" adaptation is coming together more and more each day. Earlier this week, while promoting "Pacific Rim" at WonderCon, Del Toro had this to say on the project: "The route we’re going is Constantine is our lead. Constantine is the guy who leads us in and out of the plot. We have Swamp Thing, Etrigan, we have Zatanna, we have the Floronic Man. We have stuff that those who love the darker side of the DC Universe are going to appreciate, and we’re trying to be true to the origins of the characters."

So the confirmed lineup for "Justice League Dark" (or "Dark Universe") thus far is Constantine, Deadman, Swamp Thing, the Spectre, Etrigan, Zatana, and, apparently, the Floronic Man. However, as DC fans know, there are

Suicide Squad Volume 2: Basilisk Rising Review – Adam Glass

Suicide Squad Volume 2: Basilisk Rising is this comic equivalent of a ‘90s action movie starring Casper Van Dien directed by Renny Harlin. If that sounds good to you then you’ll love this book, but for anyone with taste, this book will be both dumb and tedious to read. It’s also hella confusing due to poor (or, in places, no) plotting. But I digest…

The Squad are as dysfunctional as ever with the unlikeable and cold Amanda Waller keeping Task Force X (as they’re alternately known) in check with the threat of bombs planted in their necks and her finger over the detonation button. Depending on your knowledge of the DC Universe, they’re mostly made up of lesser-known characters like Iceberg, King Shark, Yo-Yo, Captain Boomerang and others; the two exceptions being Batman villain Deadshot and Harley Quinn, the Joker’s kind-of girlfriend.

There’s a

Hollywood Justice #9: Who Is Vertigo?

"Arrow" fans are gearing up for the debut of Count Vertigo on the January 30 episode of the series, but some may be wondering: just who is Count Vertigo anyway?

While the show's incarnation of the character promises to be very different from his comic book roots, we still thought it might be instructive to take a look back at the original conception of the character, to learn just why the folks behind the show saw him as a worthy adversary to bring into the Arrowverse.

Count Vertigo made his debut in 1978's "World's Finest Comics" #251, in a story by writer Gerry Conway and artist Trevor Von Eeden. In it, Vertigo attempts a series of jewel heists, only to be thwarted by the costumed adventurer known as the Black Canary, when she discovers his secret; he is the heir to the royal family of the small European nation of Vlatava, who

Marc Alan Fishman: The New 52 Report Card

  • Comicmix
Good morning, DC! Please, have a seat. Why yes, this is a new office. Thank you for noticing. Would you like a mint? Oh go ahead, pocket a few to take home with you. Are you nice and settled in? Excellent.

I wanted to stop today – just a bit shy of your one year anniversary as the “DCnU” – and give you an evaluation. And let’s be honest… this time last year? You were phoning it in something fierce. Anyways… I’ve assembled some thoughts about this leaner-meaner-dc you’ve tried to become. How about we take a little time now to go over my thoughts.

I’d like to start with something positive. Frankly, it took balls to announce to the world you were resetting things. Or rebooting them. But not ret-conning them. However you want to phrase it. To take your entire line back to #1 certainly got you the attention you wanted.
