Black Lightning strikes in the first trailer for CW's newest superhero show

There's a storm coming, as it's been announced that BLACK LIGHTNING is set to debut as a part of The CW's midseason slate. As we'd already learned a ways back, the character will not be a participant as a member of the CW's Arrowverse , but will instead act as a stand-alone series with the intent of establishing its own fanbase and world-building...

It might be "No, No Power Rangers sequel" after it underperforms in China

Well, this is disappointing news. While the (reportedly) 100-million dollar POWER RANGERS movie did decent business in the US (around $85 million), it was assumed that the foreign box-office would pick up the slack, and still make a POWER RANGERS franchise viable. That's precisely what happened with PACIFIC RIM, so it seemed likely to happen with this film as well. However, that was...

90s Goth superheroine Razor to get her own movie from director Rob Cohen

I know the 90s "EXXXTREME" era of comics gets a bad rap among fans. And I get - they were often adolescent masquerading as dark and deep, and were often more concerned with what was "cool" than what was emotionally resonant. But, honestly, that's what got me into comics as a kid. I loved SPAWN, MAXX, 90s X-MEN, and the DEATH OF SUPERMAN storyline. Not saying...

Face-Off: Kick-Ass vs. Kingsman: The Secret Service

Ah, nice to see you again, cinema sinners. Got your spending money all ready to throw into the pit? If not the door is back the way you came, because this is Face-Off, and this is a game of champions. Last session we pitted the superhero standouts , THE AVENGERS and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY , with Marvel's main superhero squad coming out on top. We are now in full summer mode, so that means...

Justice League Dark director Doug Liman says it'll be a "personal" movie

It seems JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK is still a thing, with Doug Liman (SWINGERS, GO) the director chosen to bring it to the moment. And, unless things have changed, the reported roster will include John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon. That's quite an interesting cast of characters, each with pretty convoluted backstories that audiences are...

Rosario Dawson will not reprise her role for Netflix's The Punisher series

Well, this is a bummer. As it says in the headline, Rosario Dawson will not be returning as Claire Temple in Netflix's THE PUNISHER series. Dawson has been a mainstay in all the other Marvel shows on Netflix previously, and she's usually a highlight (and in IRON FIST, arguably the only good thing in it). She'll definitely be missed. However, it makes sort of sense. Maybe she...

Sony taps new writers to pen their adaptation of Valiant Comics' Harbinger

Sony's animated Spider-Man film casts its Miles Morales

So this is exciting news! Apparently Sony's animated SPIDER-MAN film is still a go, and they've just cast their Miles Morales, and it's none other than DOPE's Shameik Moore ! Which, I gotta say, is pretty spot-on casting. I'm also happy to see Morales get into the mainstream spotlight more. He's honestly a great character. Meanwhile, Moore is joined by Liev Schreiber , cast as...

Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg to bring Robert Kirkman's Invincible to screen

I have no evidence to back this up, but I'm fairly certain that, every morning, Seth Rogen eats the rights to comic book properties for breakfast. For real, this dude is involved with more superhero-related cinema than I can keep track of, and today, he's added another super-powered project to his plate. The smoke on the digital street is that Seth Rogen and...

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits us with its best shot with new TV spot

It's surprising to think that the most highly anticipated superhero team movie this year is a sequel to a movie based on a comic book line that no one (besides really obsessive fans) have heard of, and not, you know, the other one . It just goes to show what a good script, fun characters, and color can do for a movie. Who'da thunk it? Anyway, with GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY...
