April 24, 2015: Frank Miller Returns to Write "The Dark Knight III: The Master Race"Print

Dark Knight III Earlier today Frank Miller announced via Twitter that the legendary writer and artist will conclude the epic THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS trilogy with the final installment, "THE DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE."

SUPERSTAR WRITER/ARTIST FRANK MILLER RETURNS TO BATMAN! "THE DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE"
Completes Trilogy in Legendary "Dark Knight" Saga

DC Entertainment announced today that bestselling, iconic Batman writer and artist Frank Miller will write the epic conclusion of the celebrated THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS saga.

The "THE DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE" is the sequel to Miller's 1986 classic THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS - heralded by TIME Magazine as one of the 10 greatest graphic novels of all time - and its 2001-2002 follow-up series BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN.

Miller will be joined by acclaimed writer Brian Azzarello (100 BULLETS, JOKER, and WONDER WOMAN) on the eight-issue comic book periodical, to be published twice a month under the DC Comics imprint. Marking the 30th anniversary of THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS original series, this periodical is slated for publication beginning in late Fall 2015.

"Batman remains my favorite comic book hero and a sequel to Dark Knight is going to be daunting," said Miller, "but we'll do our best."

"We are thrilled to have Frank back home at DC writing Batman," according to Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, Co-Publishers for DC Entertainment. "The story he and Brian have crafted is an astounding and triumphant conclusion to this seminal body of work which influenced and shaped generations of readers and creators alike."

According to Azzarello, "It's been an amazing experience collaborating with Frank these past six months. I think we have an epic story that these characters truly deserve."

Artists for the project have yet to be announced.


April 24, 2015: Neil deGrasse Tyson on the "Batman v Superman" QuestionPrint

Dawn of Justice Neil deGrasse Tyson appeared on The Daily Show Thursday night to not only talk about science, but also to answer the important question: "Who would win in a fight between Superman and Batman?"

Neil deGrasse Tyson asked the question about whom each of the characters reports to. He says, Superman "behaves in whatever way he wants. And so at the end of the day, what might matter," he said, "is the public reception of the superhero's conduct. And if Batman executes our wishes in the city and Superman does whatever the hell he wants, that's a conflict."

You can hear Neil deGrasse Tyson's voice in the teaser trailer for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Whether he actually appears in person in the movie or not is unknown at this point in time.

April 23, 2015: VideoLab asks: What if "Man of Steel" was in Color?Print

Man of Steel Many a fan has commented on the lack of color or desaturation of Zack Snyder's films and images. Many felt "Man of Steel" was dark or drab, and it seems that the people at VideoLab agree...

    VideoLab attempts to turn back time and restore the natural color & brightness in shots from Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. Turns out there was a beautiful superhero movie hiding underneath the bleak coloring.

NOTE: There are some doubts over whether VideoLab have darkened what they claim in the video is "original" footage to over exaggerate the difference between their "restored" version.

April 22, 2015: DC Comics and Mattel Launch 'DC Super Hero Girls'Print

DC Super Hero Girls A New Super Hero Universe Designed Just For Girls, Slated For Fall 2015

Mattel to Launch Company's First Action Figures for Girls

Unprecedented Initiative to Include Digital Content, TV Specials, Made-For-Videos, Publishing, Toys, Apparel and Other Products

Random House Children's Books to be Master Publishing Partner

The LEGO Group to be Exclusive Construction Partner

Beginning in Fall 2015, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Mattel join forces to launch DC Super Hero Girls, an exciting new universe of Super Heroic storytelling that helps build character and confidence, and empowers girls to discover their true potential. Featuring DC Comics' most powerful and diverse line-up of female characters as relatable teens, DC Super Hero Girls will play out across multiple entertainment content platforms and product categories to create an immersive world.

Developed for girls aged 6-12, DC Super Hero Girls centers on the female Super Heroes and Super-Villains of the DC Comics universe during their formative years - prior to discovering their full super power potential. Featuring a completely new artistic style and aesthetic, DC Comics' icons such as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumble Bee, Poison Ivy, Katana and many more make their unprecedented teenaged introduction. Each character has her own storyline that explores what teen life is like as a Super Hero, including discovering her unique abilities, nurturing her remarkable powers and mastering the fundamentals of being a hero.

"DC Entertainment is home to the most iconic and well-known Super Heroes including Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl," said Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment. "DC Super Hero Girls represents the embodiment of our long-term strategy to harness the power of our diverse female characters. I am so pleased that we are able to offer relatable and strong role models in a unique way, just for girls."

The initial launch of DC Super Hero Girls in Fall 2015 will include an immersive digital experience, original digital content and digital publishing - providing opportunities for girls to interact with characters, learn about the storylines, and engage in customizable play. TV specials, made-for-videos, toys, apparel, books and other product categories will begin to rollout in 2016.

"Developing a Super Hero franchise exclusively for girls that includes all of the key components of a comprehensive entertainment experience - from content to consumer products - is something we are excited to be doing in conjunction with our great partners," said Brad Globe, President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products. "It's really an honor to be part of this cultural moment and to be delivering a concept so rooted in a relatable and empowered theme that the characters of DC Comics are uniquely able to present."

As master toy licensee, Mattel is collaborating with DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Bros. Consumer Products on DC Super Hero Girls' narrative creation, interactive digital activations and ultimately a toy line launching in 2016. Mattel category-leading firsts include a line of characters for the action figure category, an area of the industry that has been primarily developed with boys in mind, and fashion dolls featuring strong, athletic bodies that stand on their own in heroic poses.

"Partnering with the best and being the best partner is of paramount importance," said Richard Dickson, President, Chief Operating Officer, Mattel. "Together with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, the DC Super Hero Girls franchise will further expand our already powerful girls portfolio. We know Super Hero is a culturally relevant theme and the DC Super Hero Girls franchise will engage and inspire girls, providing cues to explore heroic acts through play and into real life."

The Random House Books for Young Readers imprint of Random House Children's Books has been appointed the master publishing partner for the franchise and will be creating a portfolio of books that will bring the DC Super Hero Girls world to life, beginning in Spring 2016. Random House's publishing program will be complemented by a series of original graphic novels from DC Entertainment. The LEGO Group will also be key to building the DC Super Hero Girls franchise, leveraging their experience and success engaging girls in creative construction play to bolster this universe through an array of LEGO® building sets designed to inspire girls' imaginations. Additionally, consumer products partners around the world will be engaged in creating a merchandise line dedicated to DC Super Hero Girls across all key categories.
