Supergirl

Good news: Warner Bros. Television has tapped Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler to bring DC Comics’ Supergirl to television. The Hollywood Reporter says the duo is adapting the character for a potential new series, and they excpect Geoff Johns to have a role in developing it. No other information has been confirmed, not even the title or format.

Given the work Berlanti has already done with The CW’s Arrow, I think it’s definitely a good thing he’s involved, and I’d love to see a comic book series with a female lead head to television. I can’t wait to hear more.

Batman-Zubat-top

Art student Creees Lee took his love for all things DC Comics and Pokemon and put together some awesome comic book style mash up illustrations that do a pretty good job of matching the pets to their DC “trainers”.

ARROW

As an Arrow fan, I may have screamed a little when I saw this new image of Roy Harper trading his hoodie for this outfit. Colton Haynes wears it well, I have to say.

Yep, happy Arrow fangirl right here.

According to EW, we’ll see the Arsenal suit in the first episode of season three which airs Oct. 8 on The CW.

It seems fitting that SDCC started on Batman Day.

What better way to celebrate 75 years of Batman than with this LEGO Super Heroes: DC Comics San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Batman Classic TV Series Batmobile?

You can buy it this week at Comic-Con for $39.99. No word on availability beyond the con.

dc women

In 2011, DC Comics rebooted its superhero universe, replacing it with the “New 52″ reality. The reboot was meant to start things fresh, expand familiar characters in exciting new ways, and bring in more readers. That’s a good goal! But the reboot hasn’t taken advantage of some really interesting women who’ve inhabited the DC Universe in the past, heroic females who could truly expand the universe and reader appeal. So here is a not-nearly-complete list of just some of the cool lady heroes we’d like to see back in DC Comics in major ways (and tomorrow, we’ll look at a similar list for Marvel Comics).

Check out the list after the break…

QMx-DCbombshells-18x24-Harley-1

I’ve always been a huge fan of pin up and WWII bomber art, so the new DC Comics Bombshells already make me all kinda of happy. Which is why I’m pretty much in love with these new DC Comics Bombshells art prints by QMx.

Each DC Comics Bombshell will be rendered on a museum quality 18”x24” art print and QMx expects to release the first prints in Q2 of this year.

You can see more of this gorgeous art after the break.

Roller derby is an insanely fun sport to watch. The players have neat outfits, cool names, and they skate and bash each other around – what’s not to love? Add superheroes and it goes to a whole other level. Artist Kevin Bolk has pitted the ladies of Marvel against the ladies of DC Comics in these adorable illustrations. The costumes are already perfect for the sport; he just had to add a helmet, padding, and skates. I’d pay all the money to watch She-Hulk body check her opponent.

See more from the series after the break.

constantine

Warner Bros. TV and DC Comics are teaming up for a third time to help develop Constantine as a television project for NBC.

The Mentalist executive producer Daniel Cerone and Warner Bros. DC adaptation writer David S. Goyer have been announced as the creative team behind the new take on DC Comics’ John Constantine stories.

I took a look at the comments on this and Paul Bettany’s name pops up a couple of times. What do you guys think? Who’d be a good Constantine and what do you think about this new DC/WB collaboration?

bruce-timm-new-52-wonder-woman

When DC Comics launched the New 52, they redesigned their superheroes’ costumes. The universe got a slick new look as well. I feel okay about some of the new styles, but I like this idea better. What if Bruce Timm had created the look of the reboot instead? His DC animated series prove that fans like his illustration style, and I bet any variant cover done by him would fly off the shelves. Dad’s Big Plan came up with these possibilities, and I want them all on my walls.

See more Timm inspired covers after the break.
