After a lot of back and forth Warner Bros. has given in and released the official first look at the Suicide Squad film as well as Jared Leto as the Joker.

Please comment below with your thoughts.

Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that the next of its animated DC Universe Original Movie titles will be an adaptation of Alan Moore’s legendary comic “Batman: The Killing Joke”.

Bruce W. Timm will executive produce the film which will sport “an original 15-minute prologue that helps set up the story, giving even longtime fans of the story something new to look forward to.”

The comic itself deals with an apparent origin story for The Joker, and the shooting in which Barbara Gordon is paralyzed and changes from Batgirl into Oracle. No voice cast members were announced for the new film, only a general 2016 release date.

Two other animated films were announced at the panel including the original story “Batman: Bad Blood” which introduces Batwoman, and “Justice League vs. Titans” which introduces the Teen Titans to the DC Universe Original Movies line-up.

 

Unfortunatley for me, the first official day of Comic Con is also the last day of Comic Con.  And since I knew that would not be returning the next day, I did my best to run around and grab as many photos as I could.

The floor was even more bombarded today then it was yesterday.  Because of that, I could not maneuver through the crowds as well as I did the previous night.  I did, however, manage to pick up some really awesome stuff from some of my favorite vendors.  I also managed to swing by some booths and say hi to some old friends.  Again, due to the size of the crowd I was unable to get any interviews.

Here are some of the photos from todays adventures.  Please make sure you tune in to this weeks episode of the PanelCast as Anthony and I will be wrapping up and reviewing as much as we can about this years San Diego Comic Con.

It’s that time of year again.  No, not Christmas.  Well not for some.  But time for San Diego Comic Con.  The biggest convention of the year is upon us once again.

SDCC is always a love/hate relationship.  While I enjoy seeing all the amazing exclusives and grand booth displays on the floor, I am not a big fan of crazed crowds and long waits in line.  This year was no exception.

The convention floor was filled with some really amazing statues and toys and displays.  While I did not have a chance to see everything (the floor was only open for 3 hrs) I did my best to take pictures of what I could see.  I also managed to be able to run around to some of my favorite booths and grab some of the exclusives.

For me, my favorite part of SDCC is the Annual Forbidden Panel Dinner at the Gaslamp Strip Club (think steaks).  I was not let down this year.  Joined by some good friends and fans, I had a blast.

Here are some of the photos I did manage to take today.  While I will not be able to attend Fri-Sun, I will be on the floor again tomorrow.  Hopefully, I can snap more pictures at that time.  To see what pics I will be taking, please head over to our Instgram page and follow our adventures as they happen.   Also, check back here on Tuesday as we release the latest episode of the PanelCast with our detailed run-down of our hijinks at SDCC

Dark Horse Comics is teaming up with Universal Cable Productions to adapt some of their library comic titles for television. The first batch of comics set to get the small screen treatment will include the following titles:

The Umbrella Academy: Created by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, the comic follows the reunion of the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes with bizarre powers who must now save the world.

Harrow County: Based on Cullen Bunn’s just published work, the story follows a teenage girl who learns she is connected to the sinister woodland creatures that populate the dark woods surrounding her home because she is the reincarnation of a witch who died the day she was born.

Back Up: Based on a film script by Tom Vaughn, the story is set in a near future where technology allows people to be backed up, much like hard drives, in a way that helps them protect themselves against death.

Concrete: The Eisner Award-winning title by Paul Chadwick, the story follows a man who awakens to find his subconscious transplanted into a hulking stone body.

UCP will collaborate with Dark Horse to develop “character driven concepts for television intended to resonate with their current fan base”.

The main reason to attend the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” panel on Thursday at San Diego Comic Con seems to have vanished into the ether.

EW reports that those hoping for a new trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” to premiere at the convention are out of luck as the next trailer isn’t due until this Fall. In fact, the presentation is said to not contain any new clips from the movie at all.

There were rumors of a behind the scenes featurette screening at the presentation, but now it looks like that’s no longer the case.

So what will we see? Director J.J. Abrams, screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy will be on stage to talk about the film, and there is reports that several actors who haven’t yet spoken publicly about their roles will make an appearance.

Anime Expo kicked off today in the Los Angeles Convention Center. The annual event is expecting attendance figures in the range of 100,000 this year. From my perspective of the crowds today, that expectation is likely to be met and surpassed. There was a feel of excitement and energy around the convention center as fans of manga and anime gathered to celebrate their love of the mediums.

I have a few quick pictures for you from today, and if you want to keep up with all of the cool and interesting things that I encounter throughout the remainder of the weekend, make sure that you follow the Forbidden Panel Instagram feed.
