Justice League Reshoots Removing Cliffhanger Ending

darksied

Slash Film has gotten their hands on one heck of a scoop, claiming that the currently ongoing reshoots for this November’s Justice League are completely removing a cliffhanger ending from the film. The ending in question saw the arrival of Darkseid on Earth, setting up the sequel for the film. However, given the current state of DC’s film slate, it makes sense to leave that reveal for later.

Wonder Woman star, Robin Wright, who played Antiope, is being brought back for flashbacks in the film, that will show the origin of Steppenwolf, and his arrival. What are your thoughts on the update, and now lack of Darkseid. Given the upcoming slate, this could be quite a blessing, to have such a large shadow still looming over the DCEU, much like Thanos in the MCU.

Sugar Lyn Beard Cast as Hazard in Flash Season 4

Variety is reportsing that Sugar Lyn Beard (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates) will be appearing in The Flash Season 4 as Rebecca Sharpe/Hazard. This small-screen version of the DC Comics character is “perpetually down-on her luck and is convinced her life is cursed — until a freak accident changes everything. With the universe on her side, she poses a threat to both Team Flash and Central City.”

She joins an already stacked cast for a season that is shaping up to be a lot of fun, even without any episodes airing until early-October.

New Comic Books: August 9

NEWCOMICS

It was a pretty week for comics. DC launched a new groundbreaking book, and Marvel continued their streak of great Secret Empire entries. But those weren’t even my pick for the week, as DC’s space cops have finally taken back the crown.

AC

Yay! After the wonderful throwbacks we’ve been getting for months of Superman stories, we’re finally back to a semblance of status-quo between the relationship of Superman and Lex Luthor. The thought of them teaming up is cool, but the two of them having a fist-fight for the ages is even better. Superman con

I can already tell this is going to be one of my favorite stories for the next several weeks. The Green Lanterns, fighting a Kirby-esque villain alongside the New Gods with fantastic art to boot. Stories like this are the reason that Green Lantern is my favorite hero, and why I will always say that with the write story, he’s the best character in all of comics. This was awesome.

MM

Tom King and Mitch Gerads hasve been an all-star team for the last year and a half, and this is no different. The story seems to be out there, but is absolutely engaging and going to be just as interesting as his Vision story last year. It’s been a while since Mister Miracle and Big Barda have been the focal point of their own story, so I can’t wait for more.

SE

It pains me how good Secret Empire has actually been. I’ve never been a fan of its art, but the story has been wonderful, which is very much not Marvel-like in the case of comic books. This issue was an about-face from its usual brutal fashion, with a bit of hope finally being granted to the heroes of the Marvel Universe. Slowly, the mysterious story of shirtless Steve Rogers is starting to make a bit of sense, as most likely happening within the cosmic cube itself… at least that’s my theory.

FLASH

Giving the Flash a new power-set, and further fueling the fire that Barry Allen is his own worst enemy is genius from a story-telling perspective. Barry has been grappling with his personal demons and responsibilities as The Flash for quite some time, and it’s coming to a head in a really slow-burn sort of way, and it’s been a lot of fun to read.

Funko Unveils New Justice League Toys With Mystery Character

Funko has unveiled more Justice League toys, including the full lineup of excellent looking Mystery Minis, as well as four new Pop! figures. The Pop! figures include Wonder Woman and Cyborg holding a Mother Box, Mera, and a combo pack with Aquaman and Batman in his tactical suit.

The big takeaway, though, is with the Mystery Minis, as they reveal a new mysterious character (seen above). Initial speculation has it pegged as Willem Dafoe’s Vulko, but as of now, it remains a mystery. Hit the jump to see the full lineup of unveiled toys.

Hartley Sawyer Cast as The Elongated Man

We knew from an earlier casting call that The Flash season 4 was looking to add Ralph Dibny, aka The Elongated Man, to the team at S.T.A.R. Labs, and now  EW has just confirmed that the super-stretchy hero will be played by Hartley Sawyer (Saving the Human Race, SPiN) as a new recurring character.

This version of Ralph Dibny will be private investigator, with “skills that rival those of Batman. Upon discovering he has the power to stretch his body to any shape or form, Dibny uses his new abilities to help Team Flash solve one of Central City’s greatest mysteries.” The Flash season 4 is shaping up to be an amazing ride already, with new comic book characters, costumes, and more all in the making.

New Comic Books: July 26

NEWCOMICS

It was a wonderful week for comics, as Marvel put out the best issue yet of Secret Empire. Meanwhile, DC continued their trend of having multiple releases each week for me. They’ve mastered their release schedule, and it makes each and every week awesome.

SE

It’s shocking to me just how good this book gets with each and every issue. As long as you take it with a grain of salt, and assume it’s a standalone story that will most likely not have as deep a repercussions as you think, it’s fantastic. This winding road, full of twists and turns has been great. The fight between Natasha and Castle was great, and her sacrificing herself to spare Miles’ soul was heartbreaking after all she’s done. To cap it off, the moment with Sam Wilson taking on the mantle of Captain America one last time got my heart racing.

 

WW

This short but sweet story for Wonder Woman has been a great read, filled with gorgeous art, and a nice palette cleanser since Rebirth started. Seeing Wonder Woman deal with smaller, more personal situations was a nice change of pace, and her love for children is something I will never get tired of seeing put on the page.

 

 

AC

Action Comics finally drifted from its throwback status to give us a pretty great twist, with Zod using the enemies of Superman to his own ends to free his family. Still for nefarious reasons, of course, but it was a good change of pace for the villain. The mystery of Mr. Oz and his infatuation with Jon seems to be getting deeper, and we’ll know more as Doomsday Clock approaches, which I cannot wait for.

FLASH

The most satisfying part of this story, was seeing Iris murder Eobard Thawne in the hopes that he doesn’t show up for a long while. He’s been a recurring villain to the Flash for so long, at this point, that it’s almost felt lazy, and I was glad to see him ripped from existence like that. The entire status quo of The Flash has been changed, with Iris knowing who Barry is, Reverse-Flash being dead, and now an entirely new arc about to begin. I honestly can’t wait.

lantern

The inevitability that was the war between the Green and Yellow Lanterns came to a screeching halt. The thing that pisses me off the most? I didn’t see that John Stewart had a plan, either. Of course he did, though. That’s what he does. Imbuing the yellow rings with a green impurity? That’s such a genius writing move! It’s nostalgic, and such a great obstacle for the Sinestro Corps to overcome. Now, with Soranik going full Sinestro, it’ll be great fun to see her as a legitimate villain and enemy of the Corps.

SHADOW

This book has been so great to me. Two of my favorite characters, crossing over in a story so ridiculous that I can’t help but love it. The moment where Gordon threw back to Knightfall was great, and the dynamic between Shadow and Batman seems to shift with every page, in the most organic ways. My only issue is with Joker’s motivations throughout this, as he seems to be up to something, but I can’t quite put my finger on what.

Crisis on Infinite Earths The Goal of The Flash

flash

Since the beginning of the series, when the future newspaper headline read “FLASH MISSING; VANISHES IN CRISIS,” we’ve known what the future would hold for the Flash. It was inevitable that little by little, the concept of the multiverse would be introduced early on, with more heroes from other universes becoming a mainstay in the world of the CW.

Now, Grant Gustin has confirmed that Crisis on Infinite Earths, the penultimate storyline in DC Comics history that brought the multiverse together against the Anti-Monitor, is the true end-game for The Flash.

We don’t really talk about it on a yearly basis but it was mentioned early on and that’s a goal. Obviously we’d have to go I think ten years to reach that, so there’s a possibility for sure. It’ll be fun to get there.

DC Comics has unveiled a first look at the Dark Knights, the stars of their upcoming METAL series. From left to right: The Murder Machine, the Red Death, the Devastator, the Merciless, the Drowned, and the Dawnbreaker. Not pictured: The Batman Who Laughs.

The character design is very reminiscent of the Dark Judges, from Judge Dredd, which is absolutely a good thing. METAL hits stores next month, while each Dark Knight will have their own #1 title starting in September.
