‘Justice League: Mortal’: The DC Comics Movie Event Forever Damned To Development Hell

Justice League

It’s good to see Warner Bros. and DC Comics finally starting to learn from their past mistakes in bringing their classic comic book superhero stable to the big screen. Outside of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy their future looked mighty bleak in the wake of the less-than-enthusiastic receptions given to Superman Returns and Green Lantern. Last week the long-in-the-works Man of Steel brought Superman back to the big screen to the tune of a record-smashing $128 million opening weekend despite mixed reviews. Warners/DC had been hedging their bets of Man of Steel being successful enough to begin constructing a long-running cinematic universe of multiple superhero movie franchises to rival Marvel Studios, with the end result being an all-star Justice League team-up film.

However, the Justice League movie has proved to be of even greater difficulty to get off the ground than the film adventure of any single DCU character. Gangster Squad scribe Will Beall took a crack at the project last year but his efforts were eventually discarded by the studio in favor of a fresh start overseen by David S. Goyer, the writer and hardcore comic fan who helped make Blade the first lucrative feature franchise out of a Marvel character and also co-wrote Batman Begins and wrote Man of Steel, as part of a three-picture deal that also includes a naturally inevitable Man of Steel sequel.

Happy 75th Birthday, Superman!

Superman

He may not have been the first superhero ever created, but he is by far the greatest and most influential lead character in the history of comics. They call him the Man of Steel, the Last Son of Krypton, and the Big Blue Boy Scout, but to all of us he is Superman, and today he celebrates his 75th birthday.

There is a lot I could say about Superman, but it has pretty much already been written and anyone reading this probably knows it all by now. I will keep this brief and to the point because I sincerely doubt the man would want a long-winded tribute.

Despite a cover date of June 1938, Superman’s first appearance in Action Comics #1 actually first went on sale on April 18, 1938. The creation of Cleveland natives Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman quickly became the most popular hero at the fledgling National Comics, soon to be known as DC Comics. Over the years he rose from being the star of several best-selling titles at DC to a full fledged national icon at a time when America was battling the Axis Powers all over the world. The success of Action Comics and Superman’s solo title resulted in the creation of other superheros and heroines that would become beloved pop culture fixtures for decades to come, like Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and the Flash to name but a few. Superman’s enduring popularity also inspired other comic book publishers to create their own vast universes of super-powered avengers of justice with varying degrees of success.

Could This Be The Final Team Roster For The ‘Justice League’ Movie?

Hall of Justice

DC and Warner Bros. are desperate to get their Justice League into theaters by their projected release date of summer 2015, though so far the only confirmed details on the project is the studio’s assigning Will Beall (Gangster Squad) to write the script. The rest has been a riot of rampant speculation. Major filmmakers from Ben Affleck to Lana and Andy Wachowski have been linked to the director’s chair, but no one has been hired for the job yet. Darkseid has been rumored to be the film’s big bad cosmic villain.

As for which DC Comics superheroes will be part of 2015’s occupants of the Hall of Justice, so far it is a given that Superman and Batman will be leading the charge into whatever large-scale battle the filmmakers pit them against. The upcoming Man of Steel is said to play heavily into the build-up to Justice League with Batman possibly making a post-credits cameo, if those rumors turn out to be true. Besides those likely character choices, the remaining members of the team – and how many there will be – are still up in the air. But that looks to be changing.

Each and every week “My Name is Rob” MK2Fac3 and “My Name is Don” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically.

It’s another week of great comics, and as always, we’re here to give you a heads up on a few comics out there worth picking up. Keep in mind, this is only a small sampling of the many excellent books out there this week. I wish I could talk about all of them, and I wish I could buy them. And I really wish I had time to read them all, but hey, I’m only one man. I have to ration my time, because if I just read comics all the time, I’d never be able to bring you…The GoD List!

Each and every week “Wrassly Smurf” MK2Fac3 and “Rummy Smurf” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t?

Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

With last week’s Blue Moon, MK had to return to his natural home of Smurf Village to welcome the newest member of Smurf Village. Wrassly Smurf has a lot of smurfberries to harvest, and Papa Smurf does not care fore slackers, so it is up to Rummy Smurf to pass on some comic picks for this week. However, he has work to do as well, so we just get a couple of suggestions this week. These smurfberries aren’t going to harvest themselves, so let’s get into The GoD List!

It’s Official: DC Comics Outs The Original Green Lantern Alan Scott

Earth 2 #3 by Ivan Reis, Joe Prado and Rod Reis

DC Comics revealed today that the original Green Lantern Alan Scott of alternate reality based Earth 2 is being re-imagined as one of the publishing company’s highest profile homosexual male characters.

Alan Scott will be revealed to be gay next Wednesday in Earth 2 #2 by James Robinson and Nicola Scott. Earth 2, for those unaware, is an alternate reality in the DC Comics Universe that features several characters and heroes who are slightly different than they’re main-world counterparts. Prior to the New 52 relaunch, Earth 2 was a world in which the golden age heroes from DC’s past were alive and well, and in the New 52’s Universe, while a lot of the character names are the same, each of these characters has drastically changed. For example, the power source for Earth 2’s Flash, Jay Garrick, comes from the mythological god Mercury, and Green Lantern Alan Scott appears to be an appointed member of the Green Lantern Corps by the Guardians of the Universe, as noted by his lantern emblem, instead of being granted powers through magic. Earth 2 is a much younger and more relevant take on the characters from The Golden Age.

Comic Review: Green Lantern Vol. 1: Sinestro

Green Lantern Vol. 1: Sinestro Green Lantern, Vol. 1: Sinestro
Written by Geoff Johns
Art by Doug Mahnke and Mike Choi
DC Comics
Release Date: May 15, 2012
Cover Price: $22.99

When DC relaunched their books last year with the New 52, there were a number of books that I decided to drop. One of those books was Green Lantern. I just wasn’t enjoying it anymore, so it did not make the cut. However, when the chance came to read the first trade of the new series, Green Lantern: Sinestro, I decided I would take a chance on it. I had heard that the book had improved, and I’m here to say that it has. Green Lantern is a good book again, and if you dropped it like I did, you would be remiss in picking up the first trade.

The first thing to know about the story is that most of the multi-colored Lanterns are gone. Sure, the Yellow Lanterns play a big role in the story, but merely as the antagonists, which is what they should be. The story focuses on the main Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, and his relationship with Sinestro. Hal has been stripped of his ring, and Sinestro has been re-admitted into the GL Corps, which makes no one happy. Hal’s life sucks on Earth, what with the no superpowers, and getting evicted, and not owning a car. Sinestro shows up to offer Hal a chance at redemption, and shortly the two are off to save Sinestro’s home planet.
