With West back in action as Doctor Manhattan’s attention shifts to the DCU, it’s time then to settle an age-old debate: Who’s the better Flash? That’s the question that Flash team Joshua Williamson and Howard Porter will seek to answer in Flash War, a new event that will provide a “definitive” answer as West establishes his role in the new DC Universe.
There’s plenty of terrific stuff in the new trailer for Justice League, most of which seems dedicated to what I’d imagine is the third act of the film: There’s a conveniently abandoned Eastern-European City, the Parademons of Apocalypse have turned a nuclear reactor into a nesting ground and the Justice League is united for a final stand against SteppenWolf and his hordes. Still no Superman in action, which is the smartest marketing move by Warner Bros. so far I reckon.
Hot Toys may be the Ferrari of realistic collectibles, but they’re not the only game in town. Especially when there’s a buck to be made selling less than legal bootleg toys in the process. Unlike the days of Robert-Cop however, the people who roll out such figures are actually producing a damn fine alternative that just manages to skirt the line of the copyright that would like to bust them.
Something is coming to the DC Multiverse. A threat of titanic proportions, a danger which even the Justice League is unprepared for: Batman. Not their Batman mind you, but rather the Batmen of a dark multiverse that is hellbent on extinguishing the light of our universe.
Batman’s experiments will lead to the Justice League exploring a new multiverse that happens to be home to “The Justice League clad in ‘90s action figure armour plating fighting in an alien combat arena”. It sounds silly, weird and dammit I WANT TO READ THIS RIGHT NOW.
Whereas the Rebirth initiative was a tonal reboot for the entire pantheon of DC Comics heroes and villains, it wasn’t a proper reboot. It wasn’t Crisis on Infinite Earths or Zero Hour: Crisis In Time. The New 52 universe was still the prime reality for Superman and pals. Until now that is.
The Flash pretty much operates in exactly the same manner as he did in the first Injustice: Speed-heavy combos that actually land with the lag of a massively-pinged internet connection in Call of Duty, with his special ability allowing the player to slow down time long enough to get some extra licks in. All well and good, but the icing on this Speed Force cake is the Flash’s ultimate move, an attack that very much asks you to check yoself before you wreck yoself.
Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot is the upcoming biographical drama based on the life of cartoonist John Callahan from director Gus Van Sant. Joaquin Phoenix portrays the disabled cartoonist who regularly courted controversy for his dark humour when tackling sensitive subject matter.
