Social media is a great way to get people talking about a project you’re working on. Last week, we saw a perfect example of this when Zack Snyder released a photo of Jason Momoa as Aquaman as he’s likely to appear in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice feature film. I have to say that it’s great to see the King of the Seas get an upgrade. I’m looking forward to the film for several reasons, but now seeing Aquaman has been added to my high expectations.

I’ve long discussed the importance of female lead characters, in comics, television and movies, who are as diverse as male leads are. For instance, a male lead can be everything from a scientist to a boxer, including all shades of grey in between. On the other hand, and this tends to happen among women fans, a female lead needs to be maternal and willing to talk things out rather than resort to action or violence. Otherwise, she is just a “male with tits,” as was described to me. Recently, an interview with Joss Whedon, who’s helming the upcoming Avengers: Age

As reported here at MajorSpoilers.com, The CW renewed several shows over the weekend, including the two based on DC Comics characters, The Flash and Arrow. We also heard that the crossover between the two shows will become a yearly event, much like the “Crisis on … Earths” stories were between the JLA and the JSA back in the day. There’s an animated show to be based in the Arrow-verse on the horizon as well, focusing on Vixen, the animal-powered heroine in the DCU.

If you’ve been keeping up with the Robin saga at DC Comics, you know that the Dark Knight will have a “sidekick” again before too long. I think that’s a really GOOD thing, and I’ll tell you why in this column! And I’m not even including the marketing aspects of the character!

A lot of folks in the comics industry wonder if video games are still likely to wipe out comics in our lifetime. Well, one way to meet this head-on is to create comics that tie in to popular games, like the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight prequel.

I know the title of the upcoming movie is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but this successful franchise has a history of doing big things for a while, then going into hibernation before coming back again strongly. Well, during the recent Thanksgiving holiday weekend, Star Wars woke up in a big way, and it will affect the comics! If you were online at all since Friday morning, you’ve at least seen the trailer! Here’s the link for us here at MajorSpoilers.com!
