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.

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.

flash

Looks like we’re getting another superhero show on the CW and this time it’ll be The Flash. The news was confirmed by the CW’s Mark Pedowitz, along with the not so good news that the potential Wonder Woman series, Amazon, has been moved to the back burner. From Deadline:

During the CW executive session, the network’s topper Mark Pedowitz gave more details about The Flash project. It will be the origin story of Barry Allen who will be introduced as a recurring character on Arrow this coming season starting in the fall. “We want to expand the DC universe of characters,” he said. As for how the project came together, Pedowitz said he late last year brought up the idea to DC Entertainment president Diane Neslon who turns out had already been discussing it with WBTV’s Peter Roth and producer Greg Berlanti. Pedowitz also confirmed that “Amazon is on pause (as) the script is not exactly what we wanted, and with an iconic character like Wonder Woman, we have to get it right.

So, they give and they take. We will also be getting a Flash movie, likely sometime in 2016. From The Hollywood Reporter:

Berlanti will direct and pen the screenplay alongside Chris Brancato, Michael Green, Johns and Guggenheim. Pedowitz also noted that there is no conflict with the movie studio or DC when it comes to the TV series and feature film, as previous efforts have proven troublesome when there’s such an overlap.

Now the only question is, will the series be any good?
