“Batman VS TMNT” Gets A Trailer

Awhile back, we learned of a cartooncrossover between The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and (who knew) Batman. Today, we have our first look at the movie, and all we can say is WOW.

Entertainment Weekly got the scoop on this one, giving us a video that gives us goosebumps every time we watch it.

And here is a bootleg trailer from Youtube that is easier to watch (until the official one is uploaded to that site):

Not only are we getting the ninja turtles and batman together, but we are also getting Batgirl and Damian, plus their rogues gallery of – to name a few – Ras Al Ghul, Harley Quinn, Bane, Me Freeze, Penguin, and The Joker. On top of that, OH HAI SHREDDER!

By the way, the cast for this movie is just as INSANE as this crossover!

Emmy winner Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace) leads the voice cast behind the Turtles as Raphael, accompanied by Saturday Night Live‘s Kyle Mooney as Michelangelo, Grace & Frankie‘s Baron Vaughn as Donatello, and The Woody Woodpecker Show‘s Eric Bauza as Leonardo.

John DiMaggio (Adventure Time) voices Mr. Freeze, Tara Strong (Teen Titans Go!) voices both Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) voices Penguin, Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911!) voices Bane, Cas Anvar (The Expanse) voices Ra’s al Ghul, Keith Ferguson (Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends) voices Baxter Stockman and Two-Face, Andrew Kishino (The Lion Guard) voices Shredder, and Meskimen voices another character with Scarecrow.

“Batman VS Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” will be released through Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack this spring.

The film will have its world premiere at WonderCon Anaheim 2019 on March 31, 2019.

Jared Leto – Joker No More! DC Movies Moving On

Why so serious? You should be rejoicing, since there’s a new clown prince in town, and it ain’t Jared Leto anymore!

In a report from Forbes, we learned the fate of many DCU movie franchises, including The Suicide Squad series, where we learned the following about Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and Jared Leto’s Joker:

The Suicide Squad sequel, meanwhile, is moving forward as a sort of soft reboot to some extent, and is expected to have a new cast of characters and avoid direct tie-in to the first film’s events. Harley Quinn is not expected to return, and James Gunn’s script will be a new approach and rethinking of the property.

The Mad Love-type Joker and Harley Quinn film has also fallen by the wayside, as has the solo Joker project for Jared Leto’s version of the character from Suicide Squad. With Gunn on board as director, the film has plenty of room to bring a new flavor to the series and to the world of DC films as well.

Fans were not too keen on Leto’s rendition of The Joker, while Robbie fared much better. With the upcoming Birds of Prey movie, it seems that Harley will transition into a much more heroic role, emancipated from the toxic Joker character.

On the plus side, we do have that Joaquin Phoenix “Joker” movie on the horizon, and that is shaping up to be very interesting looking.

As of now, Forbes has the following movies on the outlook for the DCU – Shazam! Joker. Wonder Woman 1984. Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). Supergirl. The Suicide Squad. The Batman. Batgirl. The Trench. Aquaman 2. New Gods. Green Lantern Corps.

Aquaman 2 and Wonder Woman 3 will also surely end up on that list at some point.

What remains to be seen is how the DCU will remain now, as the films are mainly intended to be standalone features, and not necessarily all tied together in one universe.

Are you happy that Leto is out as The Joker for good?

Justice League Pinmates – Blind Box Unboxing & Review

Bif Bang Pow – WTF M8?

In this Mystery Figure Monday review, we unbox the Justice League Pinmates from Bif Bang Pow. These boxes were supposed to feature characters from the iconic looks of these DC comics characters. What we got instead was… well, you will have to watch and see, and possibly revel in our pain and confusion.

We can’t condone ordering any blind boxes from this line at this time, but we will suggest if you like these, try ordering some of their multi-packs, like this Justice League four-pack with Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg – https://amzn.to/2NxDr2T

Or this very cool Hall of Justice set, that includes Superman and Bizarro with a two-sided diorama – https://amzn.to/2uGc1Rx

DC Collectibles Announces PVC Statue Line and More for August 2018

DC Collectibles is kicking off the New Year in a big way by revealing a fresh new slate featuring two unique statue lines. Taking center stage in August 2018 will be a first-ever PVC statue line from DC Collectibles titled DC Core. The line will present striking new interpretations of fan-favorite DC characters and will be offered at an attractive $50.00 price point. DC Collectibles will also release an inventive multi-part statue set that showcases the Teen Titans characters as seen in the famous NEW TEEN TITANS #1 cover by legendary artist George Pérez. Additional DC Collectibles items debuting in August 2018 include a Designer Series Batman mini statue by Brian Bolland, a Batman: The Animated Series Harley Quinn expressions pack and a DC Cover Girls: Batgirl statue based on the artwork of superstar artist Joëlle Jones.

Charting into new territory, DC Core is DC Collectibles’ first line of 9″ scale statues produced in PVC. The character designs and attitudes are conjured up by DC Collectibles’ executive creative director Jim Fletcher and his award-winning design team, and will feature dazzling, dynamic poses. Each figure will stand upon a character-specific base that will include the same intricate details as the statue itself.

“DC Collectibles is always looking for new ways to bring our rich portfolio of DC Super Heroes and stories to life, and PVC allows us to create complex, exaggerated poses we’ve never tried before,” explained Fletcher. “With PVC, we don’t have to worry as much about breakage, since the material is more durable than resin, and we can offer these statues at a lower price point without sacrificing quality. Fans will be amazed at the great attention to detail given to each character, and we hope they are as thrilled with the DC Core designs as we are.”

The Joker is the first DC character to be transformed into a DC Core statue, and the spectacular sculpt by David Pereira features the Clown Prince of Crime holding his prized Joker cane on top of his equally iconic “HAHAHA”-themed base. The Joker statue hits stores August 2018 and will be followed by Batman, Batgirl and Wonder Woman statues later this year.

DC Collectibles will also release the first two characters from the company’s 6″ scale New Teen Titans multi-part statue set. The set stars the entire superhero team featured in George Pérez’s popular NEW TEEN TITANS #1 cover—Starfire, Robin, Beast Boy, Cyborg, Kid Flash, Wonder Girl and Raven—and the versatile bases allow fans to become their own storytellers. Fans can display one or a few of their favorite characters independently, or for those wanting to own the whole set, the bases fit perfectly together to recreate the iconic Pérez cover image. Each sold separately, Starfire and Robin are the first characters to hit shelves in August. The remaining characters will be released at separate times throughout the year.

More info on DC Collectibles “Artist Alley”vinyl statue Line

Designer super hero toys — meet street art. Announced over the weekend via an exclusive reveal at designer toy and comic convention, Five Points Festival, DC Collectibles is teaming up with some of the most talented independent artists in the industry to launch the new line, DC Artist Alley.

Inspired by the popular comic convention experience, DC Artist Alley will serve as an artist-focused vinyl statue line that merges indie design with the most iconic characters in the DC Universe. Serving up highly detailed, limited edition PVC figures, the first wave of releases will launch in 2018 and will feature a reimaging of seven classic characters – three from each artist, with more artists to follow.

“The motivation to create a line celebrating radical new artists stems from years of visiting cons and being impressed by the raw talent and artwork on display,” says Jim Fletcher, Executive Creative Director, DC Collectibles. “When we decided to launch DC Artist Alley, we approached visionaries we felt would best represent the line, while bringing their own creative signature to our classic characters.”

Designs will include illustrator Chris Uminga’s offbeat interpretations of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, Barcelonian-bred artist, Sho Murase’s stylish designs for Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, and HaiNaNu “Nooligan” Saulque’s exaggerated designs on The Joker, Batman and Harley Quinn. Each figure will also be accompanied by a print showcasing its original artwork.
