Dont read blackest Night unless you read johns Green Lantern from the start with rebirth.

Is there any DC story which isn't an alternate universe/timeline, or a Batman story where I don't need to buy a ton of paperbacks to understand it?

Started watching Justice League on Netflix.

I watched it as a kid, but it's been a long time so I figured I could go through it again (also, I never watched JLU, so rewatching this will get me prepared for it).

Also, out of curiosity, are the Superman & Batman of this series the same ones as from their individual 90's cartoons?

Currently Playing:

Godzilla: Smash 3 (AND)
Summoners War: Sky Arena (AND)
Salvo Saga (AND)

Yep Yep

Its called the DcAU which is a series of cartoons which share the same universe and contnuinty.

Batman The Animated Series
Superman the animated series
Justice League
Justice League Unlimited
Batman Beyond
Static Shock
The Zeta Project

For example the flash from Justice league first appeared in an episoide of Superman the anointed series. The First episoide of Justice League takes a few years after the finale of Superman man, and the last episoide of JLU is a finale too Batman Beyond.

DC is printing two digital comics called Batman Beyond and Justice League beyond which take place after all of this but before the last JLU episoide.

WAT!

Solicitations are starting to come out for July. Will probably post them tommorow when they're all up.

DC also announced the September books apart of the Five Years later event. No creators but alot of it sounds interesting.

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/04/22/ordering-dcs-3d-cover-...

to go with that last week Earth 2: World's end was announced by way of the nerdist. Its a weekly series taking place on Earth-2 and has on the writing team Daniel H. Wilson, Tom Taylor, Paul Levitz, Marguerite Bennet, and Mike Johnson, and on Art Eddy Barrows, Jorge Jimenez, Stephen Segovia, Paulo Siqeira, and Tyler Kirkham.

Tom Taylor is the current writer of the regular Earth-2 monthly book, and Paul Levitz is the writer of World's Finest about earth-2 charcters power girl and huntress on the main earth, but based on the July solicitations they're going back to Earth 2. This was accompanied with the following teaser art by Ben Oliver.

Anyone watch the latest episode of Arrow. Craps going down heavy. Not sure how Ollie will get out of this.

Ray Fisher has been reportedly cast as Victor Stone/Cyborg in Man of Steel.

There was no formal date given about Justice league but most are expecting 2017 since the films are being shot back to back.

There was a rumor from bleeding cool that DC was going to expand the MOS universe.

I might be wrong but I though I read somewhere that Manu Bennett who plays Deathstroke on Arrow is in talks for a DS movie.

Well Arrow/Flash has done a ton of world building that could fit in the Man of Steel universe and seems to have gone out its way not to conteidoxt anything. It helpsnthat MOS never says what year its in so they tie the TV stuff in pretty neatly. (Realatixlly MOS would take place in the gap between Arrow season 2 and 3.

The rumor I heard was DC was waiting to see how the Flash series was received despite the pilot getting rave reviews internally.it just makes top much sense not to connect it all when they already have a deathstroke and Sucide Squad liked by people to make a movie of. Plus having a wonder flash would work with cyborg who's also on his early 20a.

That makes sense, DC's plans are clearly not as thought out as Marvel's. I remember when they were planning on ditching the Man of Steel Universe to create a new one with JLA. I am nervous about the Flash show. It seems like it would require a special effects budget bigger than what CW can afford. Flash's villains also might seem out of place in the serious DC universe they have set up.

When wasat they were planning to ditch man of steel. There was a JL film.on the works before but it got scrapped for MOS.

The only flash rouge that looks out of place is Grodd. The rouges at the end of the day are blue collar criminals who are all about the score.

Its one of the things that makes the Flash well the Flash. He's a much note light hearted hero than even superman.

Arrow put that on display pretty well with the contrast of Barry and Ollie's personality too eaxhs theme music. Plus Arrow has already went deep into.crazy braxk with the Mirikuru, reverse Flash, particale accelators, earthquake machines, and light guns.

I dont know, if Flash follows the same formula that Arrow did concerning villains they can make any villain fit in. I mean if they can bring about Solomon Grundy in a fashion that makes sense and not to out of place in the realism that they are going for then I am sure then can do it to plenty of other villains.

They could the rouges are the easiest since at the end of the they they're just Blue Collar criminals who's on for the score and aren't really evil. The mini series they had recently was pretty dope.

Plus we had Dr.Light's light gun so I think were going to see Arrow get more fantastic.

Batman Eternal was pretty rad batgirl off the rails. Flash annual seems like a pretty good follow up to last week's but the non booth art was iffy.

A few months ago I would have scoffed at a metal men movie. After the reboot they have been given in Justice League the last few issues, this would likely be my most anticipated "lower tier" super hero movie. For whatever reason they just click really well now.

I need to binge watch Arrow one of these days, it sounds like the series is finally hitting its stride. I am a Suicide Squad fan from the Deadshot/Bronze Tiger/Captain Boomerang days. A group of killers was never so much fun (except maybe for the Secret Six...)

I'm not a big Flash fan. For me, I think his villains have more personality than he does. For whatever reason, the flash seems to be overshadowed by his villains and they seem more fleshed out than he does, and yet somehow this doesn't happen to batman. I also think the flash's rogues could work well on TV.

So Gotham will be joining the Fall line up on Fox here's the latest trailer and does it look good.

My only fear is that Fox is notorious for cancelling shows after one or two seasons so I hope that doesn't happen to Gotham.

Superheroes and Batman are too big for this to be canceled after 2 seasons unless the ratings completely tank.

Anyone here read the new 52 Swamp Thing? In particular 1-18 Scott Snyder's run. I mentioned in the Marvel thread I was going to start reading comics again and decided to pick up the Vol 1-3 TPB's and just finished the first one.. so far it's awesome and I couldn't put it down. I want to start the second but I refrain because I want to stretch them at least a couple of days. Was just wondering if anyone else enjoyed that series.
