More evil awaits as DC continues their Villain’s Month event. This week we have an issue of Action Comics that shines the spotlight on Lex Luthor. Find out how it is with your Major Spoilers review! More After the Jump >>
It does this long-time comics reader’s heart good to see Superman holding down the top position in sales as he has the last two months (and I hope he’ll do it again for August). What better way is there to celebrate the Man of Steel’s 75th birthday?
When audiences learned that Lex Luthor was returning for the season finale of Smallville, people went nuts. I have a feeling after watching this teaser trailer featuring Michael Rosenbaum will have people flipping their lids.
With a host of acting credits under his belt, self-proclaimed character actor Dominic Pace is actively petitioning for the role of a lifetime. Pace has undertaken a self-promotional campaign, championing his desire to be considered as cinema’s next Lex Luthor. Does he have the chops and insight to face off against the Man of Steel? Take the jump and find out!
Marvel has announced the Warriors Three will get a new limited series this November from one of my favorite writers, Bill Willingham and artist Neil Edwards.
Hogun, Fandral, and Volstagg are the Warriors Three, allies of Thor and some of the greatest warriors the world has ever seen. When an evil from Hel, unlike any seen by man or God, makes its move, these Asgardians may be the world’s only hope!
I haven’t read any Thor related stuff since Straczynski left, and now that I see Willingham’s name attached, the book is now on my buy pile.
Bruce Davison is no stranger to political office â€“ at least in a fictional situation. Heâ€™s played an ambassador, senator, congressman and judge, but Davison steps up in class â€“ in his first voiceover for animation â€“ as President Wilson in Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, an all-new DC Universe Animated Original PG-13 Movie coming February 23, 2010 from Warner Premiere, DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation.
If Sex In the City fans were confused over their see-saw love affair with Chris Nothâ€™s Mr. Big, comics fans will endure an equal amount of trepidation over Nothâ€™s latest performance â€“ as the voice of a â€œgoodâ€ Lex Luthor â€“ in Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, an all-new DC Universe Animated Original PG-13 Movie coming February 23, 2010 from Warner Premiere, DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation.
In Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, a â€œgoodâ€ Lex Luthor arrives from an alternate universe to recruit the Justice League to help save his Earth from the Crime Syndicate, a gang of villainous characters with virtually identical super powers to the Justice League. What ensues is the ultimate battle of good versus evil in a war that threatens both planets and, through a diabolical plan launched by Owlman, puts the balance of all existence in peril.
Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths is an original story from award-winning animation/comics writer Dwayne McDuffie (Justice League). Bruce Timm (Superman Doomsday) is executive producer, and Lauren Montgomery (Wonder Woman, Green Lantern: First Flight) and Sam Liu (Superman/Batman: Public Enemies) are co-directors. The full-length animated film will be distributed by Warner Home Video as a Special Edition 2-disc version on DVD and Blu-Rayâ„¢ Hi-Def, as well as single disc DVD, and On Demand and Download.
Noth has had a lengthy television presence as both Mr. Big in Sex and the City and as Mike Logan in Law & Order and Law & Order: Criminal Intent. He can currently be seen starring opposite Julianna Margulies in the CBS drama The Good Wife. Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths represents Nothâ€™s inaugural dip into the animated pool.
In Los Angeles to record his 100-plus lines as Lex Luthor, Noth took time during the marathon session to discuss his first animated role. Without further ado â€¦

Heroes and villains alike launch a relentless pursuit of Superman and Batman, who must unite â€“ and recruit help â€“ to stave off the action-packed onslaught, stop the asteroid, and uncover Luthorâ€™s devious plot to take command of far more than North America.
