dc comics

Warner Bros. has been moving the pieces into place for their cinematic universe for the last couple of years now – not with the same pace, precision and, arguably, skill that Marvel spent honing their own film world over the last decade, but they’re working on it. To that end, the studio has released this artwork featuring the complete Justice League line-up.

They also dropped the first footage from the upcoming Wonder Woman film on last night’s CW special DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League along with features on Ezra Miller’s Flash, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg and a surprise look at Green Lantern Corps.

Check it all out in the videos below.

The Dark Knight is about to get a whole lot brighter.

Toy collectors and Batman fans, rejoice! This set of multicolored Batman action figures is on the way. Last year, DC ran a poll featuring a bunch of abandoned toy designs and invited fans to vote for the one they wanted. This colorful collection was the resounding winner, and the toys are now in production. Hoorah! (Click the preview image above for a closer look at the toys).

And now, for a little comics history…

We’re used to our superheroes looking young and fit, but artist Eddie Liu put some thought into what would happen if those heroes aged and decide to retire to whereever it is retired superheroes go.

I think the Wonder Woman is my favorite. I can totally picture her playing Mahjong with the older ladies down in Florida.

Artist Allison Sohn clearly lives in a very creative household. She recently posted this gorgeous commission by her husband Adam Hughes.

This set of four pieces features some of your favorite DC ladies in the style of Alphonse Mucha’s “The Four Seasons”. They’re done in color Copic Marker with colored pencils, a little paint, and ink.

I can’t help hoping he does a variation on this for fans to purchase.

Thanks to Allison for sharing it!

I’m doubly amused about this because Thomas the Tank Engine is featured in an add for Marvel’s Ant-Man at the moment, but this SDCC Exclusive Thomas & Friends Super Friends Minis DC mashup set is wild.

I dunno, what do you think?

DC Super Hero Girls

Good news for fans that have been frustrated with the state of female superheroes in movies and TV. DC and Warner Bros. have announced the new “DC Super Hero Girls” initiative targeted to an audience of girls ages 6-12. It’s going to include everything from TV specials to toys with a focus on the early years of favorite female DC characters like like Wonder Woman, Batgirl and Harley Quinn.

The call for more female superhero representation in toy lines and entertainment has been growing and this is a way for girls to feel like they’re included in a genre that, for the most part, caters to boys.

I mean, I’d rather there wasn’t a need to divide these things along gender lines. For many female fans, the products made “for boys” are just fine. However, this product line could help other girls jump in who wouldn’t have otherwise.

So kudos to you DC and Warner Bros. I’m impressed.

Check out the full press release after the break.

Here’s a cool new collectible for you Arrow fans. The Arrow bookend stands approximately 9-inches tall and is made of high quality polystone, which makes him as much of a statue as a book end and, let’s be honest, is probably the closest most of us will ever come to having Amell in our homes.
