New Aquaman Logo Revealed

AM

Aquaman director, James Wan, took to Twitter this afternoon to reveal an all-new logo for his upcoming DC Entertainment adaptation, and it’s quite a bit different from DC’s usual fare with brightness and crystal being the star here. Additionally, he revealed that we’ll see the first trailer for the film at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, starting on July 19th.

Aquaman will be joined at SDCC by Wonder Woman 1984, and Shazam! – both films are due out next year, so expect Warner Bros. to have a big showing in Hall H this year. Aquaman hits theaters on December 21st.

THOR
This was a great way to get back to basics with The God of Thunder. Now that Jane Foster is no longer Thor, the Odinson must prove himself worthy once again, and he must do this all the while trying to rebuild a destroyed Asgardia. The moment where Juggernaut revealed himself as a the avatar of a God to fight the God of Thunder was fantastic. Cain Marko seems to have really supplanted himself in the face of pop culture lately, and it’s pretty great.
21
The Council of Reeds has returned with a more personal task to complete: No More Dooms. Victor is given yet another task to redeem himself in the face of his rival, and once more he fails the test. I want to hope that this quest with Ben Grimm and Johnny Storm would help show him the his virtue even more, but it looks like it may end up with the opposite effect. The big thing here? His memory revealed that Reed and Sue are still alive, with their children, traversing the cosmos.
BG
This one had less repercussions than the other Prelude to the Wedding books, but it was still a fun read. Batgirl has proven herself time and time again in the face of adversity, being easily the best of the Bat-Family. But, the big takeaway is the reveal that Harley Quinn is looking for the Joker during his pre-wedding rampage. Probably in an effort to stop him from ruining her friend, Catwoman’s big day. But, who knows?
GL
There were some great revelations and unity happening in this book. Just like Wonder Woman wearing Element X in Dark Knights: Metal created the New Gods, Hal Jordan wearing it created the Darkstars. Both wishes made on a darkened universe that were twisted and warped. It’s a fantastic way of pulling things together and unifying the universe, Post-Metal. Also, the personal story of Guy and his Father, being saved by Arkillo in a show of friendship was great. Those two have real chemistry, and it elevates the book even more when they’re together.
MM
As this series has gone on, it’s gotten less confusing, and more charming. Showing more of the mundane work that goes into Wars between planets full of Gods. Like peace summits, and small moments. It was amazing to see Kalibak pull out a pair of glasses because he needs to see the terms. It was a bit predictable in the end, with Jacob Free, the son of Big Barda and Mister Miracle, being the biggest bargaining chip, though not one that they put on the table.
HM
Hawkman has always been one of the richer characters as far as lore is concerned. His past allows him to work in more mythical things, like the introduction of Gorilla City into the history of the Earth, trade-routes and such. Not to mention the reveal of a Kryptonian Hawkman, as well as a Hawkman from the planet Rann, and the confirmation that the Thanagarian Hawkman was one and the same. All through reincarnation. With the history of DC Comics at its feet, this should be a fun read.
PM
Yes! Oh man, it’s so nice to have Eel O’Brian back in his own solo story. Plastic Man is one of the best heroes in all of comic books, and I missed his plucky humor so much. He’s so nonsensical. It was smart to re-tell his origin story for newer fans as he’s a bit older of a character who hasn’t been explored much in the last 20 years. But, now he’s back! And I could not be happier about it. On top of that, Gail Simone was a perfect choice to write the character.
FL
And the race is on! I can’t help but side with Wally West on this one. Barry Allen has lost things, but he always still remembers those pains, and exactly how they were taken from him. Wally’s children, his entire past, was taken from him and he never even knew it. That was Barry’s fault. It’s tragic that this is happening, but things are building to quite the head in the world of The Flash.
MOS
This was some seriously heartbreaking writing. Kandor has been a mainstay in Superman lore for years, and its destruction – the murder of millions of Kryptonians trapped in a bottle for centuries is simply tragic. And it showed. The loss that Superman and Supergirl felt was real, and their anger and panic showed on the page. That was the masterful writing we’ve been looking out for with Bendis and he finally broke it out here.
ww
First off, Jason seemed to fit in pretty well with the rest of the Justice League. I could very well see him filling in for Diana on a Justice League International team, or something along those lines. Next, King Best is one of the most throwback villains I have seen in quite some time. He’s massive, styled like the 60’s villains of old, and honestly already quite the delight of a villain. This is a great new rogue for Wonder Woman if he manages to stick around.

First Look at Wonder Woman 1984

To celebrate the start of production on Wonder Woman 1984, director Patty Jenkins, and star Gal Gadot, have both released new stills from the film, spotlighting not only its new 1980’s setting, but the return of Steve Trevor, played by Chris Pine!

The stills come as quite the surprise, even showing that Steve Trevor had ages since the first film, creating the possibility of him surviving. Hit the jump to check out the other still image, and full official press release from Warner Bros.

Geoff Johns Stepping Down as DC Entertainment CCO

Johns

Geoff Johns has announced that he has stepped down from the role of Chief Creative Officer with DC Entertainment, and beginning immediately, the role will be assumed by Jim Lee. Don’t take the news too harshly, though – as Johns has announced the formation of Mad Ghost Productions and an exclusive writing and producing contract with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment to create content across films, television and comic books, based on current DC properties.

In addition to the announcement Johns revealed that the first collaborative project between the two companies will be Green Lantern Corps, which he is officially writing and producing under the new banner.

Iron Fist Season 2 Later This Year

ironfist

It looks like most of the Marvel’s Defenders will be getting a new season this year, as Jeph Loeb has confirmed that we will see Marvel’s Iron Fist Season 2 later this year, with Daredevil Season 3 hitting in 2019. Marvel’s Iron Fist will again star Finn Jones as the titular hero, Danny Rand. The cast for the series will also include the return of Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, and Sacha Dhawan as Danny’s childhood friend Davos.

However, for fans of the crossover series itself, you shouldn’t be holding your breath, as there are currently no plans for a Marvel’s Defenders Season 2, but it’s not completely out of the question.

Not in the plans right now, but you never know….We loved Defenders and so did our fans. We’ll see about doing it again — as you can guess it messes with the schedules on other shows – so do you want more Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones or another Defenders?

This was an intensely strange issue. Batman seemed almost uncaring for the hostage that Joker had, which is very unlike him. Additionally, the way he played into the Joker’s plans the entire time were just… strange. As if there’s a deeper plan at work, here. King’s run on Batman has shown him as a master planner in almost any situation, having come out ahead of the deepest of scrapes, and I can’t imagine this will be any different.
MOS
Yet again, Bendis gives us more questions, with even fewer answers. The story is clearly moving forward, but we’re moving forward in the dark. Just following along, and waiting for things to reveal themselves. It’s admittedly a nice change of pace for Superman, who’s usually pretty black and white. I said it last week, I’ll say it again now: I really hope we get some answers as to what exactly is going on here, because it’s all very high up in the air, right now.
UE
This is an interesting addition to the New Age of Heroes books, as this seems to be the first one that really seems affected by Dark Knights: Metal in more ways than just “the dark multiverse created me.” The stakes here seem real, and incredibly high in comparison to the more personal stories they’ve been telling in the other books. I’m actually quite interested to see where this goes. They already wiped out several of the “new” characters they introduced, so they’re clearly not playing games.
WW
After a great setup for the Dark Gods, this felt anti-climactic in some way. The monoliths are so incredibly intimidating, but the first Dark God we’ve met, Karnell the God of Love, seemed like more an underling than a God. At least we now have an explanation for where they’ve come from, with the events of Dark Knights: Metal affecting damn near every book in the DC Universe. The Dark Gods are remnants, ripped away from the Dark Multiverse unwillingly. That alone makes things quite interesting, as it leaves the door open for Diana’s heart to steer the ship and help them back to their world, if they’ll allow it.
GGPR
It’s interesting that this one Pink Ranger from Drakkon’s guard would be able to outwit these younger Power Rangers so easily. It speaks to how much they’ve grown in the main Mighty Morphin Power Rangers book, that they can somewhat keep up with Drakkon himself. I also can’t see the story with Matthew ending in a good way. He’s reckless, and completely misunderstood the situation that happened to him, which of course he did. Who would ever believe that their friends, all of them, are Power Rangers?JL
This new Justice League feels so fresh, so different. It’s all the same characters we love, with the famous animated series lineup back in action together, but it all feels so new. The threats here feel real, and with Lex Luthor forming a new Legion of Doom right alongside the new Justice League, there’s the potential for all of this to be just what the world of comic books needs, right now. Scott Snyder is on a roll that hasn’t been seen since Geoff Johns during Blackest Night, and I haven’t been this excited about a book since then, either.

Full Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Trailer Online

Sony Pictures Animation has shared the first full trailer for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and it is an absolute thing of beauty, with incredible animation and visual styles at work. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie) are producing with Bob Persichetti on directing duties.

Shameik Moore(The Get Down, Dope) voices Miles Morales in the film, and he is joined by Liev Schreiber as Kingping, Mahershala Ali Miles’ Uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry Miles’ father Jefferson,  Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’ mother Rio, Lily Tomlin as Aunt May, with Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen, and Jake Johnson as Peter Parker. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hits theaters on December 14th.

First Look at The Addams Family Animated Movie

addams913.jpg

MGM has released a first look at the upcoming Addams Family animated film set to hit theaters on October 11th, 2019. In addition, they’ve also released the full voice cast, and synopsis for the film. Joining the previously announced Oscar Isaac as patriarch Gomez Addams will be Charlize Theron as Morticia, Chloë Grace Moretz as Wednesday, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley, Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester, with Bette Midler as Grandmama and Academy Award winner Allison Janney as the family’s arch nemesis Margaux Needler.

Morticia, devilishly devoted to her husband and children, is the pale glue that holds her clan together. Gomez, debonair, sinister and passionately in love with his wife, is enthusiastic about whatever dreadful scheme he’s cooked up. Wednesday is a brilliant and sinister teenage girl with long braids and dead-pan wit. Pugsley, a menacing 10 year old on over-drive, enjoys getting into any kind of dreadful mischief he can find. Mad Uncle Fester is good natured, merry and likes to create mayhem any way he can. Grandmama is smitten with her grandchildren who enjoy her cookies shaped like bats and skulls. Margaux Needler, the reality TV makeover queen, is consumed with a desire for absolute suburban, pastel perfection.

First Avengers 4 Promo Art Leaks Online

De7FDqDW4AIBGeD

The first rumored promo artwork for the still-untitled Avengers 4 has leaked online, showing off a few new costumes, and new looks for the post-Infinity War team, as they prepare to face Thanos again. This may still be fan-made, but given the similarities to past artwork, it’s very likely official. The most interesting takeaways are Hulk’s new costume, Hawkeye and Ant-Man are there, with Hawkeye not yet sporting his new hair, and Captain Marvel joining the fray.

Most, however, will likely point out Captain America’s lack of his now-famous beard. Which, is simply tragic. Hopefully we’ll learn more about the film soon, as Marvel Studios has opted out of Comic-Con this year, leaving us with quite a few mysteries to unravel.

First Trailer for Bumblebee Now Online

Paramount Pictures and Hasbro have released the first official trailer for the upcoming Transformers spin-off, Bumblebee. The film is a prequel showing Bumblebee’s time on Earth before the events of the first Transformers film, and the character design looks incredible, being a bit more like his original design.

In 1987, Bumblebee takes refuge in a junkyard, to be discovered by 18-year old Charlie, searching for her place in the world. Adventures ensue, and the two go on the run from Sector 7, which seems to be lead by John Cena. Directed by Travis Knight (Kubo and The Two Strings), Bumblebee hits theaters on December 21st.

Geoff Johns Reveals Wonder Woman 84 Title for Sequel

84

After registering several domain names for the sequel of Wonder Woman, it would seem that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment may have revealed the final title: Wonder Woman ’84 – which is an interesting choice to say the least. Geoff Johns revealed the above image on his Twitter, this morning. It’s been confirmed that the sequel will take place during the Cold War, so the title could elude to that. Keep in mind this title is not confirmed, and could be viral marketing.

The sequel is set to introduce Barbara Minerva, aka Cheetah (Kristen Wiig) and Narcos star Pedro Pascal, who has also landed a lead mystery role. The screenplay was penned by director Patty Jenkins, Geoff Johns, and Dave Callaham.

Sony Delays Silver & Black Indefinitely

Exhibitor Relations is reporting that Sony has pulled Silver & Black from their release schedule, delaying the film indefinitely. The Spider-Man spin-off was originally slated to be released in theaters on February 8th, 2019, but had yet to begin production. Silver & Black was set to be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love and Basketball), who also wrote the first draft of the script.

There’s no word on if production on the film will continue, but it would appear that Sony is waiting to see how well Venom does at the box office before continuing its spin-off efforts.
