Well: that WAS a BIG surprise! The CW Network with KEVIN SMITH and GEOFF JOHNS have shown us a taste of things to come.

We were treated to:

The whole show should be available online and can be viewed on various facebook feeds. Meantime: Here are some highlights to enjoy.

 

 

Each taster fuels desire for more movie news / spoilers etc. And this IS still a BIG risk. BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is out in March but we still don’t know quite how big a hit it will be. When I dared suggest it could do STAR WARS numbers, I was lambasted. Lesson learned. And it’s a fair point: remember that MARVEL really only went ahead fully with a shared universe once IRON MAN had hit big. But, MAN OF STEEL did well for Warners /DC back in 2013, despite any suggestion to the contrary. So one could argue that SUPERMAN is the IRON MAN of DC? 

One thing is for sure: these are very interesting times to be a fan of comic books, movies and of comic book movies!
