This is what you might call corporate miscommunication.
Next time you make some fan art of your favorite actor playing an adaptation of a beloved character, just remember: there’s a possibility you could be helping that person land a job.
Superhero movies are nothing without their big, wild set pieces. And one critic thinks he knows what’s wrong with the DC Extended Universe’s big fights.
For the last few years, Lex Luthor has been parading around in power armor with Superman’s S-shield on it, acting as an imperious good guy. But this summer, he’s going back to being a big bad in a big way by creating an all-new team made up of the DC’s elite archvillains—meaning the Legion of Doom is finally coming to…
The Legion of Doom might be one of the most beloved DC villain teams around thanks to their place in Superfriends and other myriad tie-ins, but they’ve never really been a thing in the comics, beyond references here and there. But in the wake of the Justice League’s recent shakeups, Lex Luthor is bringing the Legion…
Some pretty major storylines are coming to a head in DC Comics’ series this summer—and so to set the stage, DC has released DC Nation, a collection of stories being offered free digitally (or for a quarter or less in comic book stores) that give some hints at interesting and troubled times ahead for the world’s finest.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's regular dosage of all things merchandise. This week, we’ve got claws out for a very cool Iron Spider figure, Lego’s descent into chibi-figurine madness continues, and Overwatch’s premiere edgelord slinks into action figure form for the first time. Hide those wallets, the toys are here!
Steppenwolf, as he came to be in Justice League, wasn’t really the most compelling villain, but he could have been more interesting than the film let on.
DC Comics’ ongoing Metal event finally came to a dramatic finish yesterday, but the epic ended with a lot more than the defeat of a squad of evil, broken Batmen (and one woman) from the alternate, dark universes devoid of hope. It’s also made some significant developments for the DC comics multiverse that are going…
There’s a point in every comic book supervillain’s life when they’re made to team up with the very superheroes they’d once sworn to destroy by any means necessary. For Darkseid, that time is now.
We’ve heard a lot over the years about Justice League Mortal, George Miller’s scrapped attempt to bring DC’s finest heroes to the big screen, but we’ve barely seen anything from it. A piece of concept art here, a costume there. But now we actually have our look at the League that could’ve been, suited up. Sort of.…
A moment of silence, please. The world has lost a titan today: the most contentious piece of facial hair in moviemaking history. The mustache that caused Justice League to turn Henry Cavill’s face into a CG-shaved, one-way ticket to the uncanniest of valleys, is no more.
Last week, Justice League quietly ended its domestic box office run with a total gross of a little over $229 million, making it the lowest-grossing film in the new DC Universe.
This June, Justice League is relaunching, which means there’s another roster change in store for DC Comics’ foremost superhero team. The good news: If you loved the Justice League animated series, then the setup is rather familiar.
When he started his current run on Justice League, writer Christopher Priest said that he’d be approaching DC’s first-tier team book as a workplace drama. The legendary comics writer says that, no surprise, the Dark Knight would be a hero who’d give headaches to the human resources department.
It’s no secret that blockbuster movies rarely get a lot of love on Oscar night. So, this year, producers tried to remedy that by hiring comedy songwriters the Lonely Island to tackle the subject. However, the resulting idea was deemed “financially and logistically impossible” and cut from the show.
Just a few months after his DC debut with Justice League, Joss Whedon is leaving its cinematic universe. Whedon has confirmed he’s no longer writing or directing Batgirl, saying he “failed” to come up with a good story.
Valentine’s Day is upon us, and—what?! You haven’t bought your loved one a valentine yet? Or, rather, you bought one and it sucked because it wasn’t from io9? Lucky for you, we’re here to help with our annual batch of super-special Valentine’s Day cards for all the nerds and geeks in your life. Because we just love…
Batman might currently be cozied up to Catwoman, but there’s another leading lady who deserves to wear the batring. Since it’s Valentine’s Day, it seemed like the perfect time to debut our brand-new video series, “Total Shipshow,” where we have people tell us all about their favorite ships. This week, Managing Editor…
Ben Affleck’s time as Batman has had highs, but it’s mostly been defined by the endless discussion about just how done he is with the Bat-mantle, and how long it’ll be until he announces his exit from the role. Which honestly makes this new statue a perfect collectible for the Batfleck era.
