October 22, 2014: "LEGO DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered" Preview ClipPrint

DC Entertainment has released a new clip from the upcoming Cartoon Network special, "LEGO DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered", which features Cyborg meeting Batman for the first time as they battle Lex Luthor.

Cartoon Network has also released an extended story description along with six preview images from the animated special...

    Batman prides himself on being a loner, a totally self-sufficient one-man-band. Just ask anyone; Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, Alfred... anyone. So, he is understandably irritated when his nightly cleanup of Gotham City villains is interrupted by Superman, who pesters Batman to join his new superhero team, the Justice League. After Batman makes it quite clear to the Man of Steel that his invitation has been declined, Superman flies off disappointed... whereupon he is overcome with a strange energy and vanishes!

    With Earth's mightiest super-being missing, it's time for the World's Greatest Detective to spring into action. With no time to lose and the entire planet to search, Batman enlists the aid of the fastest man alive, The Flash. Together their high-speed search leads them to the villainous Captain Cold, who is stealing an ancient artifact in Egypt. After the Flash has likewise vanished at the end of their battle with evil, Batman teams up with Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg to fight famous costumed Super-Villains before vanishing one-by-one at the hand of a mysterious enemy. It now falls to the Dark Knight, who alone must free the newly-formed Justice League from a powerful foe. But can Batman learn the value of being a team-player before the Justice League is lost forever?

October 22, 2014: Schleich Unveils Its DC Comics FigurinesPrint

We originally reported in October 2013 that Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, had partnered with leading figurine manufacturer Schleich on a new line of non-articulated figurines based on the DC Comics pantheon of Super Heroes. Now, in October 2014, we finally have images of their line of Superman figurines set to be released from January 2015.

All items are hand-painted, with utmost details and will come in an attractive package.

October 22, 2014: Kate Perkins Talks About Writing SupergirlPrint

Supergirl #36 Kate Perkins, better known as just K. Perkins, will join Mike Johnson as co-writer on the "Supergirl" comic book title in November with issue #36. Newsarama.com spoke with Perkins to find out what we can expect from Kara Zor-El in the coming months. Here's part of the interview...

    Q: With this mysterious Crucible Academy story, which enrolls "beings of cosmic importance," what elements of Supergirl are you exploring? How does this situation challenge or pose a threat to her?

    Perkins: I'm a 'think first, act second' kind of person. Kara, on the other hand, is not - and I love that. Being in a 'school' environment, Kara's instincts and thought processes are going to be challenged, which will put her in a place of vulnerability. In that vulnerability, she's also learning her limits, which can be a very good - or very scary - thing to confront.

    Q: Why did you think this challenge in particular made sense for Supergirl at this point?

    Perkins: From my point of view, Kara was kind of grabbing at straws before Crucible Academy. She was trying to find out who she is and where she fits in the universe through other characters. I think she's back at a new kind of zero now.

    She fully realizes her life on Krypton is gone and understands that mourning won't do her any good any longer. So, she starts anew on Earth by her own choice. Making that step is an incredibly hard thing to do for anyone, especially for someone who has to count largely on herself.

    And though she make strides on Earth, she chooses to remain at Crucible because she sees the value of being there.

    But that in no way implies that there aren't complications...

October 22, 2014: Ray Fisher Talks Cyborg and "Batman v Superman"Print

Ray Fisher In an interview with Entertainment Weekly actor Ray Fisher, who has been cast to play Cyborg in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", says he had no idea that Warner Bros. were planning a solo Cyborg movie as well...

    "I didn't know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character," says Fisher, who was hired in March to cameo as Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. "When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn't think I'd be getting my own stand-alone film."

    "I'm a long-game player and didn't see any of this happening until at least my 40s," Fisher says. "It's a huge honor, but a bit of pressure comes along with it. My mind is just boggled right now."

    In July, the actor wrapped shooting his part for Batman v Superman, scheduled for release in March 25, 2016. He remains tight-lipped about plot-points and potential spoilers but confirmed meeting certain super-friends on set: Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ben Affleck (Batman). Fisher also bonded with fellow New Jersey-ite Jesse Eisenberg, who portrays super villain Lex Luthor in the movie.

    "I met everyone in the Justice League except Henry Cavill and Ezra Miller," Fisher says of the actors who respectively portray Superman and the Flash within the DC Cinematic Universe. "It was surreal. You get this idea of going to work on a Hollywood set as being really stressful and nerve-wracking. But it blew that stereotype away. If they did have stressful times, it wasn't while I was there."

So what were Fisher's final thoughts on what fans can expect from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"?

    "Let me tell you, man," Fisher says with a laugh, "people are in for a hell of a treat."

October 21, 2014: Team-Up Variant Covers for "Superman" Comic BooksPrint

Superman #36 Variant Cover Superman #35 Variant Cover While the January 2014 solicitations from DC Comics revealed that a DC-wide "Flash 75th Anniversary" theme would be the focus of the variant covers for that month, the "Superman" comic book title will be getting its range of "Team-Up" variant covers over the next few months.

    Geoff Johns and John Romita, Jr.'s Superman series will begin featuring a new variant cover theme starting with this week's Superman #35 and lasting through March's Superman #40. Each of these variant covers will spotlight an iconic team-up between Superman and another DC hero that Johns has written over the course of his DC career.

    In addition to these covers, DC has revealed that Superman #37 will feature a Superman/Green Lantern team-up by Ethan Van Sciver, while Superman #38 will see Lee Moder pair Superman and Stargirl (the star of Johns' very first DC project).
