  1. DC Collectibles continues its new DC Essentials line with Superman who is featured in the most recent costume the debuted in Action Comics #1000, the blue tights with red trunks, boots and cape. This costume also features the line work around the wrists on the sleeves as seen with the New 52 costume. The figure stands 7” tall which is a larger scale than their previous Icons line as well as other 6” Lines like Marvel Legends and DC Multiverse figures. However, these new figures do match up well with older DC Collectibles New 52 figures and even the few DC figures NECA has done. This particular figure does not have any additional accessories, a key component for this Essentials line. DC Collectibles says this decision helps keep prices down to range between $22 and $25. Something cool like the eye-heat beam effects seen with DC Collectibles Icons Death Of Superman figure would have been cool, but I understand why they are limiting accessories. This Superman has a fairly solid paint job with only two complaints. The loops on Superman's belt match the remainder of the yellow belt instead of the red portrayed in the comics. I also don’t like how visible the difference between the shade of red used on the ankle joints and the glossy red paint used on the feet and upper portion of the boots is. It almost looks like Superman is wearing socks or something. The head sculpt on the figure is very solid in my opinion. It’s actually one of the best looking head sculpts I’ve seen on a Superman figure. The hair is solid black and features the iconic hair curl. The skin tone, eyebrows and eyes have solid paint jobs, and the expression is very Superman like. The S symbol on his chest is painted and not sculpted, but it looks solid. The figure has a closed fist for the right hand and an open hand for the left. The arm length is perhaps a little too long but honestly even in a static pose it doesn’t bother me too much, and the arms work pretty well for things like flight poses. The red cape is made of that typical rubber-type material and is red on both sides. This incarnation of Superman does not feature the S symbol on it. The cape is a good length, and I think it hangs on the figure fairly well. Articulation on the figure is solid as we’ve seen with previous Essential figures. What I really like is you can get the head back thanks to a neck hinge joint for flight poses. This is something that often seems to be missing from Superman figures. You do get that gap at the crotch section which I know annoys some folks, but doesn’t bother me much. I would say that maybe DC Collectibles should consider going back to the same crotch design they were using on the more recent DC Icons figures. I think you have a good range of motion with those without the big gaps. The joints overall on this figure seem pretty tight, but the ankles are a little rubbery causing the figure to wobble a bit when trying to stand which can be annoying. Despite some complaints, I am actually really enjoying this figure and the different kind of flight poses I can achieve. That and the very solid looking head sculpt make this a great addition to anyone’s Superman figure collection. Look for this figure to hit comic and specialty shops later this month. You can pre-order it now at Megalopolis.Toys and BigBadToyStore.com. Thanks to DC Collectibles for sending this figure free of charge for purposes of review. Check out more images for this figure below in our GALLERY! as well as a Toy Talk video on it.
  2. According to Deadline, Narcos actor Brett Cullen will play the role of Thomas Wayne in Todd Phillip’s The Joker. Cullen is taking on the role after Alec Baldwin passed because of scheduling conflicts. Cullen's career has included a few comic-book related projects in which he played Barton Blaze, father of Nicolas Cage’s Johnny Blaze in the 2007 feature adaptation of Marvel’s Ghost Rider and as a congressman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Rises. In 1981 Cullen also starred as Joe Dumming in an episode of CBS’ The Incredible Hulk.
  3. DC Collectibles continues its new line of highly articulated 7” DC Essentials comic based action figures with a second wave of figures that include Superman, Aquaman, Black Manta and Brainiac. The figures incorporate the same style of window-box packaging as the first wave. Each box is color coded and numbered to match the included figure. Superman, number 5 in the series, has a blue box. Brainiac is number 6 with a green box; Aquaman is number 7 with a orange box; and Black Manta is number 8 with a black box. The back of the packaging features another image of the figure, a bio for the DC Essentials line and a look at the other figures in the wave. It also tells us the figures were sculpted by Paul Harding. Two of the four figures in this wave, Aquaman and Black Manta feature accessories while the other two do not. Aquaman comes with a trident made of gold plastic, and Black Manta comes with two swords and a bladed weapon made from a metallic silver plastic. Aquaman’s trident is shorter than the figure, and Black Manta’s weapons fit in the non-removable backpack included with the figure. For the figures themselves, they all use the same basic muscular body as the figures in the first wave with some minor differences. Brainiac and Black Manta have the same type of boots while Superman’s are unique and Aquaman isn’t wearing any. Black Manta has a metallic silver wrist gauntlet sculpted on the right wrist and two rubber-like hoses attached from the helmet which runs to the backpack. While the paint applications on these figures are pretty basic, I like the glossy black used on Manta along with the red on the eyes and neck. The helmet is a good size with some nice sculpting detail on it with line work. Black Manta has two grip hands. Aquaman has chainmail sculpted on his shirt along with a metallic gold belt with an ‘A’ on it. I also like the metallic orange used on the shirt and the green on the pants with gloves matching nicely. The gloves are sculpted so the backs stick out at the top in a point, and he also has the fins sculpted on the back of his lower legs. He has a metallic gold color that is sculpted not just painted. The head sculpt on this figure is pretty solid overall but probably my least favorite of the four figures in the wave. Aquaman has a closed fist for the right hand and a grip for the left. Brainiac has nice sculpting detail on the head with pinkish circles on the top of his head. Except for the boots, all other aspects of the outfit are painted on and the figure features two closed fists. Superman has the best head sculpt of the four figures and one of the best I have seen on a Superman figure in some time. He has black hair with the iconic curl. The figure features the outfit from Action Comics #1000 with the red trunks. The one minor error on the figure is that they forgot to paint the belt loops red. Also, I don’t like the darker red used on the ankle joints which is noticeably different from the glossy red used on the rest of the boots. The cape on Superman which is made of a rubber-like material is a good length and hangs well on the figure. Superman has a closed fist for the right hand and an open hand for the left. Articulation is solid on all four figures including thigh swivels, double-jointed knees and elbows. I especially like how far back you can get Superman’s head back for flight poses. Black Manta has the least head movement due to the large helmet. All four figures are roughly the same height although Black Manta might be a bit taller due to the helmet. The figures are not in scale with other 6” lines like DC Icons, Marvel Legends and DC Multiverse but do match up nicely with all the older DC-based figures that DC Collectibles made before they did DC Icons. At the end of the day, while the figures aren’t perfect, I am enjoying them overall and think if you want a highly articulated DC Comic based line these are worth checking out. Look for the second wave to start hitting comic and specialty shops this week. You can pre-order these figure now from Megalopolis Toys. These figures were provided by DC Collectibles free of charge for purposes of review.

  8. According to Deadline, Shane West has been tapped for a villainous recurring role on the upcoming fifth and final season of the Batman prequel drama series on Fox. West will play Eduardo Dorrance, an old Army buddy of Jim Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie). Having lost touch with Jim after the war, Dorrance returns to Gotham years later, leading a team of elite soldiers with the goal of helping Gordon restore order to No Man’s Land. But as the scales fall from Gordon’s eyes, he realizes Dorrance’s true intentions in Gotham are much darker and more evil than he could have believed. Sources believe that the character of Eduardo Dorrance is believed to be related to a well-known villain in the Batman comic universe, Sir Edmund Dorrance, aka King Snake, who is the father of another big bad: Bane. It could also be possible that Eduardo could be Bane himself.

Timothy Dalton has been tapped to play Dr. Niles “The Chief” Caulder and Alan Tudyk has been cast as Eric Morden/Mr. Nobody in the upcoming live-action series, which centers on a group of superhuman outcasts who are called to a life-changing mission.

  16. DC Collectibles has launched a new diorama statue line for fans of the classic Marv Wolfman and George Perez run of All-New Teen Titans comics which started in 1982. The entire team of Starfire, Robin, Beast Boy, Cyborg, Kid Flash, Wonder Girl and Raven will be featured in the series, and things kick off with Robin and Starfire who are starting to hit comic and specialty shops now. The statues come with detachable bases and Robin who is sculpted in a running like pose stands around 7.37" tall while Starfire who is sculpted in a blast-off like pose is 10" high. Both statues were sculpted by Joe Menna who has done a fantastic job capturing the look of the characters from Prez' artwork. These really do look like they were taken straight off the cover of All-New Teen Titans #1. Starfire's hair blast incorporates translucent plastic towards the bottom at the base which in the like looks like actual fire. The statues can be displayed as individual pieces which is nice for those not interested in completing the whole team, but if you get all 7 statues in the series then the bases are shaped so you can place them together re-creating the Preze cover of All-New Teen Titans #1. Thanks to the folks at DC Collectibles for providing us these two statues so we could take a look. These will be available at comic and specialty shops as well as online at places like BigBadToyStore.com. Check out below our detailed in-hand IMAGE GALLERY for Robin and Starfire which are hitting shelves now.
  17. During the three-night crossover event, we'll see the return of Supergirl's Tyler Hoechlin as Superman and bringing with him is the intrepid reporter Lois Lane. “We couldn’t be more excited to introduce Lois Lane to the Arrowverse,” Supergirl executive producers Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner said in a statement. “This dogged, determined and brave reporter will make for a strong partner to Superman and amazing addition to our universe of DC characters.” Casting for the role of Lois Lane hasn't been determined yet but most notable live-action portrayers have included Teri Hatcher, Erica Durance, and, of course, the late Margot Kidder.

  18. Earlier in the month, we reported that Brent Spiner will recur on the CW drama Supergirl as Vice President Baker. TVLine is now reporting that Bruce Boxleitner will join the CW drama in the recurring role of Vice President Baker. He replaces Brent Spiner, who had to vacate the role due to family issues conflicting with the show’s production dates.
  19. The CW has released a new promotional poster announcing the dates for The CW's epic crossover event with The Flash (12/9), Arrow (12/10) and Supergirl (12/11) this year. Please note for the this year's crossover, The Flash and Supergirl will swap time periods for this one time only (as indicated here).

  20. I have not really read any Batman comics in some time but decided to pick up the big wedding issue this week just to see what happened. All I will say is I will likely not be reading any more Batman comics anytime soon if this is the best they can do.
  21. Divided and trapped, Tulip, Jesse and Cassidy battle old friends, new enemies and loved ones to escape certain death - or worse. Original Airdate: 08/19/2018
  22. If you are expecting any of the Justice League characters to make any appearances in Aquaman then you will be disappointed. Director James Wan confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that this first standalone movie will be a true standalone feature, focusing only on Aquaman (Jason Momoa) rather than sprinkling in other DC characters along the way. Wan explains: “I wanted to keep the story to the world of Aquaman and not have to worry about what other characters are doing in their films and how that would affect us. I just thought the simplest way was to keep it clean — keep it simple and let it be an Aquaman story.” Now when it comes down to DC adding some kind of post-credits scene outside the main narrative that nods to other characters wouldn’t surprise. Wan explained that when he was initially in talks for the project, he made it clear to DC and Warner Bros. that he wanted a certain degree of independence to make his own unique film. “I told them I understand and respect that it’s part of a bigger universe but at the end of the day I have to tell the story I want to tell, and I want to develop the character as well,” Wan previously told sources. “It was something the studio was respectful about … .in my movie he starts off one way and becomes very different by the end. It’s a classic hero’s journey. I equate our story to The Sword and the Stone, it’s a very Arthurian story about a journey to becoming king.”
  23. DC Universe’s live-action Doom Patrol series has cast English actor Joivan Wade in the series regular role of Victor Stone aka Cyborg. Previously announced Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane and April Bowlby as Elasti Woman. Doom Patrol is described as “a reimagining of one of DC’s strangest group of outcasts,” including Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman and Crazy Jane. Led by the mysterious Dr. Niles Caulder, the Doom Patrol is called into action by the ultimate hero for the digital age, Wade’s Cyborg. Banding together, these rejects find themselves on a mission that will take them to the weirdest and most unexpected corners of the DC universe. Doom Patrol‘s Vic Stone in turn is described as “the charming and sarcastic half-human, half-machine superhero known as Cyborg. Vic may be connected to every computer on the world, but he struggles to maintain the connections that make him human. Desperate to gain acceptance from the outside world, Vic harnesses the curse of his cybernetic body and uses his powers as the ultimate hero for the digital age.

  24. The CW president Mark Pedowitz appeared at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Monday and acknowledged that “Batman already exists in the Arrowverse,” citing Oliver Queen’s mention of Bruce Wayne during Arrow Season 6. “Batwoman lives in Gotham,” where her potential standalone series will be set, “but there are no plans at this time to have Batman appear,” Pedowitz told sources. Gotham's Batwoman will be introduced with the December’s Arrowverse crossover — between Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl, but not Legends of Tomorrow. It was previously announced that Batwoman is being eyed for her own CW series, centered around the out lesbian and highly trained street fighter who struggles to snuff out the failing Gotham’s criminal resurgence.

  25. Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. and DC are developing a feature film based around Supergirl, the heroine and cousin of Superman. Not a lot of information is being divulged at this point, except Oren Uziel is working on the script. According to DC mythology, the character was a teen when she escaped the doomed planet Krypton along with the infant who grew up as Clark Kent. As for Superman, It is unclear whether he will be making an appearance but Warner Bros and DC Entertainment are looking to create a new template for future Superman movies, this would seem a likely place to hatch a new persona.
