IDW is turning five of its manga series into shows… at five different studios


Because of Marvel and DC, cinematic universes are all rage. But the folks at IDW have something else in mind. The company revealed in a recent press release that five of its books are in development as a show. It’s worth noting that all five properties mentioned are in development at different networks or streaming services.

“Dark Spaces: Wildfire” is in the works at Universal, “The Delicacy” at Warner Bros. TV, “Rivers” at HBO Max, “Ballad for Sophie” at Universal International Studios and “Brutal Nature” at Anima Studios. It’s a bold strategy and more of a hedging strategy than putting all your eggs in one basket. Will the strategy succeed? Time will answer!

This is a quick 101 guide to Namor, The Submariner

People in Marvel provided a brief but reasonably complete guide to Namor, the Submariner, a comic book protagonist who will make his live-action debut in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” later this year. The video is a great introduction to the character and his history in Marvel Comics for those who are only familiar with the character’s underwater feats.

She-Hulk star Tatiana Maslany wants to lead Marvel’s A-Force

Tatiana Maslany is all set to make her MCU debut in “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” later this month. But what about her future in the larger universe? As we can see in the interview above, the actress was asked about possibly leading Marvel’s A-Force at some point. Maslany enthusiastically replied, “Yes. Yes. Yes.” Maybe someone called Kevin Feige?

Red Hood has a separate trailer for the knights of Gotham

The release of the video game “Gotham Knights” is only a few months away and everyone at DC revealed a brand new trailer. In this case, we have a character trailer focusing on Red Hood, who will be one of four playable heroes in the game. Robin, Nightwing, and Batgirl will also be available to players, with them all having stories that intersect after Bruce Wayne is killed.

Wait, did Henry Cavill turn down the chance to be Superman again?


What time is it? It’s rumor time! Recently, Erik Davis of Fandango had a long chat about Twitter space with The Wrap reporter Umberto Gonzales. The two are discussing a “Batgirl” situation about DC’s future under Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav. Discovery. During the conversation, Davis revealed a rather intriguing detail about Henry Cavill regarding Superman. “I heard a story they asked him, and he didn’t want to do it, he didn’t want to come back,” Davis said. Wait what?! Could that be true? Gonzales also agreed: “I know that the current regime, they like him like Superman and I think they will try.” The reporter added, “This will probably turn out to be a story, I’m not sure, but I’m pretty sure they’ll probably try. [get him back]… I could be wrong.”

Many fans have been calling for Cavill to return to the role, despite the fact that “Man of Steel” has been out for nearly 10 years and has never had a solo sequel. If all of this is true, then it sounds like he’s not interested, or at least hasn’t heard anything compelling enough. Keep stable.

It’s Spider-Man’s 60th Anniversary!

On this day in 1962, “Amazing Fantasy” #15 is published, introducing the world to a tiny superhero named Spider-Man. The rest, as they say, is history. In honor of Peter Parker’s 60th birthday, Marvel published the video above showing notable “Spider-Man” creators Dan Slott, Karla Pacheco, and Maurene Goo discussing the hero. The video focuses heavily on the expansion of Spider-Verse, which Slott was primarily responsible for creating, which paved the way for other characters like Miles Morales and Silk. It was a great conversation among some serious comic book heavyweights.

Killer Moth is about to appear in the movie Batgirl

Stuntman Jules Wallace sheds even more light on how the “Batgirl” movie will never see the light of day, as the movie was canceled recently, despite being nearing its end). Wallace, in his Instagram post, revealed that the character Killer Moth would appear in the film and that he doubled the money for the actor chosen to play the role. Who exactly is that actor? That’s still unknown but this would provide an interesting opportunity to bring a relatively obscure DC character to life. The villain originally appeared in “Batman” #63 in 1951 and has appeared in shows like “Teen Titans Go!” as well as the video game “Batman: Arkham Knight”.

Rumors of the explosion of lightning and crisis on the earth are endless


After the big shake-up at Warner Bros. and DC, some confusion has surfaced behind the scenes and throughout the site. Therefore The Hollywood Reporter canceled some of DC’s upcoming projects and what’s going on with them after the news.

First, it was reported that Ezra Miller, although all their recent troubles, which reruns “The Flash” over the summer. So we can take the role back from the table, at least for now.

Meanwhile, current director of DC Films, Walter Hamada, has plans to make a “Crisis on Infinite Earths” movie. However, with Hamada coming to the end of his term, due to his anger over “Batgirl’s” situation, that was probably dismissed as well.

Thankfully, some other movies like “Black Canary” and “Blue Beetle” appear to be safe, at least for now. But it is more likely that there will be more bad and complicated news.

Amazing Fantasy #15 was published 60 years ago, and it cost 12 cents at the time

Finally, as mentioned, it’s Spider-Man’s birthday. “Amazing Fantasy” #15, written by Stan Lee with art by Steve Ditko, remains one of the best pieces of comic book work ever produced. The book has sold for millions of dollars at auctions in recent years, but when people at ABC pointed out above, it cost only 12 cents at the time of publication. Calculating inflation only brings the books up to $1.18 or so. Now, anyone who holds a copy for many years could have made a ton of money.
