COMICS PORTAL: What’s in a Title?

Last week, Warner Bros. announced the final title for what had previous been called “Batman vs. Superman.” Granted, they kept that as part of the movie’s full name, but they did add another phrase to it: “Dawn of Justice.”

COMICS PORTAL: Comics-Related Movie Fatigue in 2014?

In recent years, observers of the movie industry have been worrying out loud about “superhero fatigue.” In other words, will movie-goers get tired of seeing movies with comic-book superheroes in them? I think this might better be turned into “comics-related movie fatigue.” Will people who go to the theater wear out when it comes to comics turned into big-screen films in 2014? That’s why I like to think of this column as: “Comics-Related Movie Fatigue: The 2014 Edition.”

COMICS PORTAL: The ‘Guardians’ Challenge

Nobody is happier than I am that more comics-related properties are hitting the big screen. As I’ve said before, each comic can be considered as a possible movie, sometimes even showing how it could look in the movies. Marvel Studios’ Phase II is going to be very interesting to watch for many reasons, and I’ll outline them below.

COMICS PORTAL: Marvel vs. DC vs. Us

I’ve been following with interest the Internet discussions ever since word came out last week that Marvel was putting Captain America 3 up against Batman vs. Superman in movie theaters on May 6, 2016. Even though this is still over two years away, the battle lines have been drawn. Most of the people discussing it felt that Warner Bros/DC was at fault because Marvel had previously claimed that weekend even though they never said just what film would be released then. WB/DC had moved the Man of Steel sequel from July 17, 2015, to that date several months ago. Ever…

Don’t Ruin It!

Even though this website is called MajorSpoilers.com, I still don’t like it when serious plot points in a story I’m looking forward to reading are given away. And I steer clear of ruining a story for anyone else as a result.

DC Making More Weekly Comics, 3D Covers

Several months ago, I discussed the debut of Batman Eternal, which will begin next month, in April. Now comes word that DC will also have two other weeklies hitting the stores by October. Not only that, September will be another special month, with peeks into possible futures of many DC characters. We’ll see what could be happening to them five years from now.

Comics Portal: More Number Ones!

If a comics company wants to get the attention of comics readers and collectors, there’s one sure way to do it … issue a number one! For example, Marvel has announced that at least two number one issues are on the way soon from them … Captain Marvel #1 and Daredevil #1. Some of my friends just wretch every time a first issue comes out. They’re mainly big collectors, and that means they have to shift their comics boxes around to reflect the new realities. And they HATE that! Still, you can ask any comics marketer, and you’ll get the…

Lex Luthor, Hero?

Recently, news came out that Lex Luthor, Superman’s opposite number, will be joining the Justice League, at least for a while. That’s certainly going to cause friction in that team!

Johns and JRJR Take on The Man of Steel

Remember last week’s column when I said that change is a constant in the Doctor Who universe? Well, fortunately for us, change is also taking place in the Superman universe! As reported here at MajorSpoilers.com, two big talents in the comics industry are going to take their shot at Superman, hopefully making that title sparkle as it should!

Making a Titan out of Doctor Who?

Change is a constant in the universe of Doctor Who. Every few years, the main character regenerates into a different person. For example, Matt Smith recently handed over the role to Peter Capaldi, a decidedly different actor, so we can expect The Doctor to move in another direction as a person as well. Another big change that recently took place was when the comics license for Who left IDW Publishing, a company that had a pretty successful run with that franchise, among others like Star Trek. Recently, it was announced that Titan Comics would now publish new comics adventures of…
