Nathan Fillion Joins The Cast Of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad

Boy, it sure has been a big weekend when it comes to discussing casting for The Suicide Squad. If you’re not up to speed, then now is probably a good time to tell you that Steve Agee has been enlisted as the voice of King Shark. And now, a man who many would consider being geek royalty has joined the fold as well.

According to Deadline, none other than Nathan Fillion has been added to the cast. This shouldn’t come as much of a shock, as the veteran actor has teamed with James Gunn for various projects in the past. Should you require a refresher, then it’s recommended you dust off your copies of Guardians of the Galaxy, Slither and Super.

At the time of this writing, it remains unknown as to what character or sort of role Fillion is playing in the picture. One can only

Wonder Woman: Bloodlines Blu-ray Release Date And Extras Revealed

Once we’re ready to put 2019 behind us, I’m confident that we’ll be able to say this year was a great time for DC animation. In my view, Reign of the Supermen, Justice League vs. The Fatal Five and Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were each impressive to varying degrees, with Batman: Hush dazzling audiences most recently.

If those weren’t enough, the talented folks behind these flicks have one more ace up their sleeve, that being Wonder Woman: Bloodlines. For those not up to speed, they should know this’ll be an original tale developed for the direct-to-video market, as opposed to an adaptation of any specific comic book. Furthermore, it’ll indeed take place within the New 52-inspired continuity begun by Justice League: War – only it’s set earlier on the timeline.

Before now, there were only unconfirmed reports regarding when Bloodlines will arrive on

Kevin Conroy To Play A Future Bruce Wayne In Crisis On Infinite Earths

At this point, it’s getting increasingly more difficult to decide which piece of new pertaining to “Crisis on Infinite Earths” is most awesome. So far, we’ve learned that both Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh will suit up as different iterations of Superman, with the latter portraying the Man of Steel from the Kingdom Come timeline. And if that weren’t enough, Lamonica Garrett’s pulling double duty as the Monitor and Anti-Monitor, Elizabeth Tulloch returns as Lois Lane, Batman ’66 alum Burt Ward will show up, and – get this – Tom Welling and Lynda Carter are supposedly joining the party as well!

Now, alongside The CW confirming Cress Williams will get in on the action as Black Lightning comes word that beloved voice actor Kevin Conroy will make the leap from DC animation to live action by playing a Bruce Wayne from the future. If you were to ask me,

Catwoman Was Almost Revealed As Batman Beyond’s Creator In Canned Movie

By now, you don’t need me to tell you for the umpteenth time how Batman Beyond‘s popularity has endured long past its three-season run on television. In addition to fans the world over continuing to watch the beloved animated series on home video, DC has continued the legacy in the comic book medium. Heck, they’re even introducing a Batwoman Beyond this fall!

As it turns out, two bombshells were dropped during the retrospective panel conducted last week at San Diego Comic-Con. One, of course, was that Batman Beyond: The Complete Animated Series will arrive on Blu-ray this October. The other, however, is some pretty earth-shattering trivia.

Believe it or not, a second Batman Beyond direct-to-video film had been planned back in the day, but it never got off the ground because Return of the Joker didn’t meet sales expectations. According to Bruce Timm, this would’ve

The Question Comic Coming from DC Black Label

Jim Dandy Jul 11, 2019

Legendary penciller Denys Cowan returns to The Question in a new DC Black Label comic written by Jeff Lemire.

We've got a rule 'round the old Den. It's a simple one, easy to remember: If Denys Cowan is drawing something, buy it. If Bill Sienkiewicz is inking him, buy an extra copy. It doesn't matter if it's Deathstroke. Or a crossover that is ridiculous on its face, like Hong Kong Phooey/Black Lightning. Or even a quickie crossover tie-in like Convergence: Detective Comics. This rule has never once failed any of us, and we intend to follow it for this art duo's latest DC project.

Jeff Lemire is teaming up with the legendary artists and colorist Chris Sotomayor to bring The Question to DC's mature imprint, Black Label. The Question: The Deaths of Vic Sage is a four-part story starting in November that will track Vic Sage through history.

Born Jan. 20, 1929 in Benton Harbor, Mich., Johnson appeared in a number of TV shows and movies before landing a spot on Laugh-In, the NBC sketch comedy series (1968–1971) that made him a household name. Among his more popular characters was Wolfgang, a German soldier who didn’t seem to realize that World War II had ended. Wolfgang came equipped with an iconic catchphrase (“Verrrry interesting…

Arte Johnson, Emmy-Winning ‘Laugh-In’ Star, Dies at 90
Arte Johnson, who won an Emmy for his work on “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In,” has died at the age of 90.

Johnson died of heart failure on Wednesday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which first broke the news Wednesday. His death followed a three-year battle with bladder and prostate cancer.

The actor starred on “Laugh-In” from 1968 to 1973, playing a variety of characters including his best known, the Nazi soldier Wolfgang, who is known for his catchphrase, “Very interesting.” The phrase would go on to become the title of his own sketch comedy special, which aired on NBC in 1970.

Arte Johnson Dies: Emmy-Winning ‘Laugh-In’ Standout Was 90
Arte Johnson, who won an Emmy for his memorable work on Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In and worked in TV and film for nearly half a century, died early Wednesday at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, his family said announced. He was 90 and had battled bladder and prostate cancer for the past three years.

Johnson earned three consecutive Emmy noms for Laugh-In from 1969-71, winning the first year. He was part of the politically tinged NBC sketch series’ main cast from its launch in January 1968 until 1971, playing myriad characters in the show that launched the careers of such stars as Lily Tomlin, Goldie Hawn, Eileen Brennan, Henry Gibson, Jo Anne Worley and many others.

Among his most popular characters was Wolfgang, a cigarette-smoking German soldier who believed that World War II was still ongoing, as he scouted the show while hidden behind bushes. He would then invariably comment on the preceding sketch

WB May Be Making A Big Batman Beyond Announcement At Comic-Con

Despite a fair amount of beloved DC cartoons being released on Blu-ray, there remain some glaring omissions. Fortunately, Warner Bros. began crossing a few of their most iconic shows off the list last year when Batman: The Animated Series finally got the HD treatment. That said, one would think the likes of Superman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond won’t be far behind.

Although the Man of Steel’s adventures would be the next logical choice in a chronological sense, it appears as though fans of Terry McGinnis will get their wish granted first. The reason I’m saying that is because a “Batman Beyond 20th Anniversary” panel is being conducted at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 18 at 12:15 pm Pacific in the legendary Hall H. On hand will be producers Bruce Timm and Glen Murakami, casting/dialogue director Andrea Romano, director James Tucker, writers Bob Goodman and Stan Berkowitz,

Worlds Collide In First Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans Trailer

Though I’ll always remain a Justice League Unlimited guy first and foremost, I’ll admit that I do like seeing DC’s younger heroes getting a chance to shine. Whether it be Young Justice or DC Super Hero Girls, we’ve seen drastically different productions meeting the needs of audiences in recent years, with each filling an important niche.

Actually, I’d be remiss if not mentioning Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go!, two series featuring the same cast which happen to be radically dissimilar in tone. Of course, there is some overlap on the Venn diagram when it comes to viewership, but there remain fans of the original series who simply don’t dig the current iteration.

Believe it or not, universes are soon set to collide in the ambitious Teen Titans Go! vs Teen Titans, which has now had the curtain pulled back on it. If you

Here’s How Riverdale’s Kj Apa Would Look As Wally West’s Flash

Whenever anyone chooses either Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, Wally West or Bart Allen as their favorite iteration of the Flash, odds are the era in which they grew up plays a big part in that decision. Though Golden Age purists may side with Jay, Silver Age junkies will likely favor Barry. Actually, a lot of people these days will also dig Barry because of the TV show airing on The CW, but let’s not forget about how Wally stepped up during that period occupying the time between Crisis on Infinite Earths and Final Crisis. Yes, he was the Scarlet Speedster at DC for about two decades, barring that little hiccup with Bart.

If not for Grant Morrison’s revival of Barry Allen in the aforementioned Final Crisis, we could’ve been singing Wally’s praises to this day. Remember, the guy voiced by Michael Rosenbaum on the Justice League

Justice League Animated Star Calls For A Reunion Series

The long-running Diniverse was the place to go in the 90s and early 2000s for top quality superhero action. Prior to the McU and Dceu, the excellent Justice League adapted several classic comic book storylines and went above and beyond your average Saturday morning cartoon. The final season of Unlimited aired in 2006, capping off the Diniverse storylines and characters that went back as far as 1992’s iconic Batman: The Animated Series.

Now, 13 years after the last episode was aired, the cast is calling for a reunion. Phil Lamarr, who voiced Green Lantern John Stewart, kicked things off by posting a photo of the gang at the Warner Bros. offices in 2001.

Kevin Smith Wants To Direct A TV Series Based On The Question

With various DC properties having made it to screens big and small in recent years, we’ve naturally found ourselves being acquainted with heroes and villains beyond the A-list. Truth be told, we owe most of the thanks to the television side of things, especially the ever-expanding Arrowverse over on The CW.

And while we’ve met the likes of the Elongated Man and Wild Dog in recent memory, one glaring omission in the eyes of hardcore comic book geeks has been that of the Question, the trench-coated conspiracy theorist who, believe it or not, served as the inspiration for Rorschach of Watchmen fame.

As it turns out, one guy who’d like to bring this cult favorite to the small screen is Kevin Smith. Having previously directed key episodes of Supergirl and The Flash, it’s time he makes his mark on another DC character.

Arrow’s David Ramsey Would Love To Jump Into Green Lantern Mythos

For the longest time, fans of Arrow – myself included – have been yearning to see John Diggle put on a Green Lantern ring. Of course, this seemed like merely a pipe dream once he adopted his own superhero identity, that being Spartan, and was also integrated into DC Comics canon.

Then, we were given a glimmer of hope when the Flash of Earth-90 met Diggle during last fall’s “Elseworlds” crossover and asked him where was his ring. Obviously, this was a thinly-veiled way of saying that Diggle’s Earth-90 doppelganger is actually John Stewart, a proud member of the Green Lantern Corps. And considering how that fella featured prominently in the beloved Justice League and Justice League Unlimited animated series, it’s safe to say he’s the definitive lightsmith in the eyes of many.

So, while we continue pondering Easter eggs, yet another connection was made during one of Arrow season 7’s latter episodes,

Justice League Vs. The Fatal Five Blu-Ray Review

If any DC-themed animated movie to drop in 2019 offers the best of both worlds, it has to be Justice League vs. The Fatal Five. The reason I say that is because while it does chart new territory that I’ll detail momentarily, it’s a love letter to those of us who adored the sheer perfection that was Justice League Unlimited. Believe it or not, even the film’s score mirrors what we once heard from the beloved animated series. Rest assured that you’ll feel right at home as soon as you hear a well-placed electric guitar accompany Superman’s first display of heroics.

Right now, I’m guessing that you’re champing at the bit to ask me if indeed this flick is in continuity with Jlu, as opposed to Batman and Harley Quinn, which really only shared visual similarities with The New Batman Adventures.

Justice League vs. The Fatal Five Review

Justice League vs. The Fatal Five is a reunion of talent and style that bridges the old and the new.

Nearly 27 years after the Bruce Timm-developed DC Animated Universe began in 1992 with Batman: The Animated Series, and 13 after it ended in 2006 with Justice League Unlimited, the so-called Timm-verse is … well, not quite back. Yet the new animated film Justice League vs. The Fatal Five is a reunion of talent, and style, but with a new class of heroes joining the iconic characters (and the actors who voiced them) for a largely satisfying adventure.

Executive produced by Timm, the film reunites Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg, and George Newbern to voice, respectively, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman – roles for which their performances are definitive. Visually the movie also looks like the Justice League Unlimited animation style, complete with character Easter eggs that call back to heroes (and a couple Arkham
