Justice League Dark 22

     This particular part of the “Trinity War” is where the story slows way down.  After all the action this was definitely a letdown for me personally but the art was wonderfully done by Mikel Janin.  The story does not really progress or provide any real answers in this issue.  Wonder Woman is still on a wild goose chase to try and help Superman while Batman is trying to stop her.  Batman is following the lead of the Phantom Stranger and the heroes are divided between the pair.  The story ends with Superman escaping from his restraints and leading a third team for answers as well. In summation, the Justice Leaguers chase their tails all issue long.

    I think this was a case of just too much going on for a smaller caliber book to handle. Jeff Lemire struggled to write the guest crossover characters.  On a positive note the usual suspects like Constantine and Zatanna shined in this issue. Overall everything just seemed a bit forced with too many heroes acting out of character.  Since when does Batman blindly follow the advice of someone he never met? Hopefully the action picks back in part four and the bigger picture starts to get a little clearer. I would have to give this issue a solid yet disappointing 3 out 5.

All the cards are being laid out on the table, and things are really heating up on the movie front. We’ve all seen the announcements as they filter in for the new X-men movie slated for theater in 2014. We’ve got the cast all lined up, we have a rough synopsis of a possible plot, but all that was left was the tentative announcement of what X-men really pop. Sentinels, so it is with a relieved heart, and bundles of excitement I bring you the teaser shots, and a little something extra.

The Flash live-action TV series is being quickly (pun intended) put into production due to the great success of The Arrow series on the CW.

The Flash series will be on the CW and will be a spin-off from Arrow with the Flash appearing on the show late in season 2. It is uncertain if the show will be with Barry Allen or a different version of the fastest man alive. The show will come from the existing Arrow creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, along with director David Nutter and writer/DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns! This news comes on the back-end of the news from SDCC about the Superman/Batman movie and the potential Justice League movie along with The Flash movie still set for 2016.250px-flash_dvd

If you can’t wait for this version of The Flash, check out the 1990 version starring John Wesley Shipp.

Don’t forget to check out The Flash in the new animated movie Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox now out on Blu-Ray/DVD.
