Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer, with some help from Christopher Nolan, team up to bring their vision of a modern Superman tale, and what may possibly be the start of a DC cinematic universe. The trio all have experience in making great movies starring cape donning protagonists, so this outing should be no different. Find out if they repeat success with the big, blue boy scout after the jump! (Spoilers below).
More from E3 as WB Games Montreal released a new trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins, the prequel to the fantastic Arkham Asylum and Arkham City games. With a few more villains revealed and a look at some new (old) gadgets, it’s worth taking the jump and watching.
The latest incarnation of the Titans in form has been successful enough that Cartoon Network is picking it up for a second season. Based mostly on the Teen Titans series of the early aughts, Teen Titans Go! is a slightly cuter, more comedy-driven version of the show aimed at an even younger audience. It originally aired as shorts during the DC Nation block before becoming a full-length show in April. Garnering an average of 1.7M viewers, the show is definitely worth the renewal. Cartoon Network’s official announcement should be made later today.
Vertigo title Fables has had a history of preproduction hell when it comes to adaptations for other medium. But now there’s hope. Not only are we getting a Fables video game from TellTale Games, but Warner Bros. finally has a writer/director/producer team put together for a film. Take the jump to find out who might finally put a Fables film together for us.
DC is putting on a “Villains Month” this September with most of their titles taking at least a .1 detour. While the merits of this idea can and have been discussed elsewhere, we have seen some interesting news with the solicits for the not one, but two Teen Titans issues for the month, which you can check out after the jump.
Or – “Something Old, Something New…”
Since the relaunch of the New 52, a lot of attention has been paid to bringing back old concepts, dressing up the old guys in hip new clothes and revamping things that haven’t quite hit the mark, but there hasn’t been a whole lot of NEW world-building in play. Gail Simone’s The Movement changed that last month with a relatively impressive debut, but will they be able to keep up the pace with #2? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “I Haven’t Been Keeping Up With This Book At All…”
When the New 52 launched in late 2011, it seemed that all anyone had to say about Catwoman’s ongoing revolved around her sex scene with the big bad Bat. After nearly 2 years, has Selina Kyle reached the point where she has her own identity? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Toy makers have taken to a trend of teasing upcoming products by releasing small images before showing fans the entire statue. Kotobukyia released an image earlier this week that should have Shazam fans excited. Full image after the jump.
It’s a strange thing to be first. Many times, the first iteration of something isn’t the most iconic, the best or even the most well-known, but today’s Hero History entrant puts the lie to that expectation. After years of nearly no super-heroic representation of anyone who wasn’t Caucasian (and even that one green kid had blonde hair) the streets of Metropolis gave birth to a hero whose mettle and courage are the equal of any who came before, and whose feats of power quickly made him one of the most respected heroes around. An multiple-time Olympic champion as well as a teacher, he has trained both mind and body to peak of perfection, and you can’t begrudge the man his unique style. This, then, is your Major Spoilers Hero History of Jefferson Pierce, Olympic Gold Medalist and all-around badass, known to the world as… BLACK LIGHTNING!
Blockbuster season is officially underway with Iron Man 3 and Stark Trek Into Darkness both in theaters. Not wanting to let anyone forget about the other major comic book property being adapted this summer, Warner Bros has released a new trailer for Man of Steel that is filled with Zod, fighting, flying, and lasers! Let the destruction begin!
The DC animated films that Warner Bros. have been releasing regularly for the last few years have been mostly great. While I’m not the biggest fan of Superman, one can still appreciate the Big Blue Boy Scout. Since Superman: Unbound came out earlier this month and we here at Major Spoilers have a review for you just pass the jump.
Watch this and then time yourself on how long it takes for you to complete your pre-order for Arkham Origins.
