Look, I’m just saying. This new Justice League poster is either the movie’s loving tribute to the heroic art of Alex Ross, or Batman somehow convinced his teammates to do their own cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Either way, it makes for a damn good image.

Fox’s first X-Men movie paved the way for the current age of comic book movies that we’re living in. But after 17 years, 10 different movies, one soft, but significant reboot, and a high-concept television show, the live-action X-Men universe has gotten... complicated. But The Gifted executive producer Matt Nix has a…

The series of events that led to Duke Thomas becoming a masked vigilante were shaped by tragedy and pain, but like most of Bruce Wayne’s young proteges, the traumas of his past are what drives him to patrol Gotham’s dangerous streets.

Amidst all the craziness of San Diego Comic-Con, with its plethora of movies, shows, and hype, it’s easy to forget the reason the convention exists in the first place: comic books.

Thursday’s DC Animated Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con was a fairly subdued affair. But apparently DC and Warner Bros. saved all their big surprises for last night’s premiere of Batman and Harley Quinn—because now we know that not one, not two, not three, but four more major DC animated movies are on the way.

Have you ever tried to explain the X-Men comics to a friend who doesn’t really read comic books? I mean, like all of their various adventures and plotlines and alternate timelines and deaths and resurrections? Of course not, that would be virtually impossible—and that’s exactly what Hip-Hop Family Tree creator Ed…

The first Lego Movie had the surprise of its material to work with. Lego Batman had, well, Batman. What can the Lego Ninjago movie do to keep things fresh? we wondered. According to this shockingly great new trailer the answer is: A lot of things, because the movie looks downright insane.

Parties at Comic-Con almost always have an entertainment theme or sponsor. It’s how companies and websites pay for them. Most are pretty subtle but when Sony teamed up with IGN to do a Dark Tower party, they went straight to the Stephen King source material to find their inspiration.

Quite obviously, the cast of what may be TV’s most spoiler-protected show ever wasn’t going to march out onto Comic-Con’s Hall H stage and start spilling secrets, especially in the absence of David Lynch. In fact, they couldn’t even if they wanted to—aside from perhaps MacLachlan, the actors are only allowed to read…

Now is the time of year when bees are wild
and eccentric. They fly fast and in cramped
loop-de-loops, dive-bomb clusters of conversants
in the bright, late-September out-of-doors.
I have found their dried husks in my clothes.

They are dervishes because they are dying,
one last sting, a warm place to squeeze
a drop of venom or of honey.
After the stroke we thought would be her last
my grandmother came back, reared back and slapped

a nurse across the face. Then she stood up,
walked outside, and lay down in the snow.
Two years later there is no other way
to say, we are waiting. She is silent, light
as an empty hive, and she is breathing.

There is nothing more terrifying than watching every cart in the parking lot zip across the parking lot at top speed during a thunderstorm... and nothing more satisfying than seeing that not a single one of them crashed into a parked car along the way.
