  |  @   |  

For a long time, at least since 2007, Dwayne Johnson has promised us that there would be a Black Adam movie, with him starring in the title role.

It’s not exactly clear what the delays were that prevented the film from being released earlier, but it is starting to look like it finally has a solid release date. More on the report below.

SXSW 2018: DC Creators Talk The Future Of Superman Ahead Of Action Comics #1000
  |  

One huge benefit of reuniting Superman with his iconic red trunks is the amount of attention it creates, which is very useful for DC Comics as it embarks on a brand new era for the Man of Steel. Case in point, the promotion pairs red underwear featuring #thetrunksareback hashtag on the back as well as a wall of Voodoo Doughnuts in the shape of Superman’s shield at this year’s SXSW (see photos above and below).

Comics Artist Lea Hernandez Tackles DC’s Controversial ‘Naked Harley Quinn With A Toaster’
  |  @   |  

The wonderful comics artist Lea Hernandez (Killer Princesses, Cathedral Child) dropped her interpretation of “Naked Harley Quinn A With Toaster,” based on DC Comics’ controversial new art contest, onto the Internet via her Twitter on Sunday.

See Hernandez’s four panels of greatness here after the jump.

First, a little back story. DC Comics is holding an Open Talent Search artist contest where the winner would get to draw one page in Harley Quinn #0, the launch of the publisher’s new series by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner. The tryout script asks for all new potential artists to draw the Joker’s favorite squeeze, Harley Quinn, on one script page in four different panels acting out four different scenarios. The last panel of that page asks for Harley Quinn to be naked in a bathtub trying to kill herself with a toaster. No, really.

Jim Lee Weighs In On DC’s Controversial ‘Harley Quinn’ Artist Tryout Script
  |  @   |  

Jim Lee, Co-Publisher of DC Comics, took to his Twitter tonight to publicly air his thoughts regarding the controversy surrounding the popular comics publisher’s current Open Talent Search artist contest, which was met with some backlash from those feeling that it was sexist and disrespectful to women.

The contest guidelines, which ran on DC’s website under the headline “Break into comics with Harley Quinn,” requires entrants to draw four panels featuring the DC female villain Harley Quinn attempting to commit suicide because of outlandish situations the DC writers put her in. The contest winner would then get to draw one page of DC’s Harley Quinn #0 by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner to be released this November.

DC’s panel descriptions, which include showing Harley Quinn naked in a bathtub surrounded by hanging electronics preparing to launch another suicide attempt, prompted public outcry accusing DC of being sexist towards women and insensitive about suicide (you can read of this over at The Daily Dot). The general interest women’s website Jezebel, which is part of Gawker Media, felt that DC’s contest was “disturbing” and “showcases DC’s blatant disregard for women.” This issue comes on the heels of another recent controversy for the publisher, who were accused of being homophobic for not letting Batwoman marry her same-sex partner, which prompted Batwoman‘s creative team of J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman to leave the title.

Since Twitter is not exactly the premiere platform for discussing delicate, polarizing subjects, we’ve compiled all of Lee’s tweets and photos all together here below. The end includes the sneak peek of Superman Unchained that Lee sent as his final tweet.
