The Teen Titans went from a loosely dark and gritty narrative animated series to a full-on goofy self-deprecating show. Its new format is full of pop culture references and self-jabs, which makes it entertaining enough to give it its own film.
Now the second trailer for Teen Titans GO! to the Movies has been released, and it has more of those jokes, plus a not-so-new voice joining the cast. Check it out, below.
Warner Bros. and DC Comics announced on Friday that they will be producing three new direct-to-video animated features featuring Batman for release in 2016. With Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice poised to explode onto the big screen next March, there will no doubt be another resurgence of interest in Dark Knight-related merchandise.
Among the three new animated movies coming our way next year will be an adaptation of what is arguably one of the greatest stories of the Caped Crusader ever told, Batman: The Killing Joke.
In February 2014, DC Comics will be bringing the increasingly popular sci-fi subgenre, steampunk, to their New 52 lineup in the form of variant covers. The covers will span their most popular titles from Action Comics and Batman to Justice League and Wonder Woman. A collection of artists including Dave Johnson and Klaus Janson will be providing the covers.
The covers will feature all the trademarks of steampunk, which is a sci-fi subgenre that is generally set in an alternate Victorian era where steam and clockwork have become the predominant technology. These covers feature it all – from dirigibles and steam-powered machines to cog-driven robots and brass button covered apparel. So, so many brass buttons!
You can check out the full list of comics getting these variant covers and their artists below, along with previews of the covers.
As most of you may know by now, DC Comics is relaunching their entire line of comics this Fall alongside a day and date digital comics initiative. What you might not know, however, is that it all started three weeks ago with the releases of the last issue of DC’s summer event Flashpoint, and the beginning of the new universe with Justice League #1. This Wednesday is the last big week of releases and I’m picking up a lot of these book, and there are still a lot of books to look forward to in these upcoming weeks, as well as plenty that you and I will probably want to stay away from for varying reasons. So, in the order of kindness and assignments from my editor, I will be breaking down each title with their creators, what they’re about, and what you can expect from each of the new books. And, guess what? I’m not in love with a lot of the decisions that they’ve made! So, this should be fun…
Today, DC Comics announced five new titles coming in September centered around teams and teens. Fans have been asking about most of these titles since the initial announcement from DC, and now, they got their answer. But are these titles and changes enough to get fans excited? Well, in my ongoing coverage of DC’s relaunch by listing the new titles while giving you my running commentary, I hope to help you come to that conclusion on your own. So, let’s get started!
Legion Lost #1 – This actually seems pretty interesting to me. In a very similar concept to the traditional take on Legion of Superheroes, this band of seven seemingly diverse heroes from the 31st century go back in time to save the future. Legion Lost will be written by Fabian Nicieza, a personal favorite, while the art will be handled by Pete Woods who has done a phenomenal job on his recent stint with Action Comics alongside Paul Cornell. I’m really intrigued with the concept, and I love the creative team, so I’ll definitely be giving this one a shot.
