'ZACK SNYDER'S JUSTICE LEAGUE' SUPERMAN TRAILER RELEASED03/05/21 @ 1:50 pm EST
Last week, fans saw Marvel’s most iconic heroes in mysterious teasers. Today, Marvel Comics proudly announced that these characters will be part of a bold new vision of the Marvel Universe crafted by super hero masterminds writer Jason Aaron and artist Ed McGuiness. Their critically-acclaimed work on Avengers
will reach its zenith with HEROES REBORN, a new series that answers the question of what the Marvel Universe would look like if the Avengers never assembled. What new super team would step up to fill the void, what deadly threats would emerge unchecked, and what would become of your favorite characters if they never became heroes…
Welcome to a world where Tony Stark never built an Iron Man armor. Where Thor is a hard-drinking atheist who despises hammers. Where Wakanda is dismissed as a myth. And where Captain America was never found in the ice, because there were no Avengers to find him. Instead this world has always been protected by Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the Squadron Supreme of America. And now the Squadron face an attack from some of their fiercest enemies, like Dr. Juggernaut, the Black Skull, the Silver Witch and Thanos with his Infinity Rings. Blade is the one man alive who seems to remember that the entire world has somehow been… reborn. And so begins his search for the cause behind this ominous shift in reality.
“Maybe the wildest story I've ever put on paper. I got to cut loose on this and release my inner comic-reared child in a really profound way, and together with a cadre of immensely imaginative artists, we built a world that I'm pretty confident in saying is quite unlike any version of the Marvel Universe you've seen before,” Aaron said of his latest Marvel saga. “It grew out of the pages of my AVENGERS run, but kept getting bigger and bigger as it went, and the more pieces I put in place for this Reborn world, the more gleeful and excited I became. This project really stoked the fires of my love for comics in all the right ways.”
“It’s only natural that after the Phoenix burns the world to ash, there should come a rebirth, and so REBORN is the next big step in the massive super-story that Jason and Ed have been crafting in Avengers,” Executive Editor Tom Brevoort said. “Prepare to enter a very different yet hauntingly familiar Marvel Universe!”
“I’ve been having an absolute blast designing and drawing some new spins on old favorites Jason Aaron has brought to the table,” McGuinness said. “They are all with a purpose story wise which makes them really cool to get into from the art side of things. He may be the maddest scientist of all!”
Get your first look at what this exhilarating new era has to offer in a special announcement trailer
and keep a lookout for more information in the coming weeks. Be there for this radical transformation of the Marvel Universe when HEROES REBORN #1 hits stands in May.

FOUR GENERATIONS OF CAPTAIN AMERICA TEAM UP TO CELEBRATE THE HERO’S 80TH ANNIVERSARY03/05/21 @ 1:40 pm EST
After a teaser released yesterday and centering on the Dark Knight, today it's the Man of Steel.
Superman (Henry Cavill) sports his black costume and silver glyph in a new image and short clip released via social media. Cavill was the first member of the Justice League to be cast or appear onscreen, originating his version of Clark Kent in 2013's The Man of Steel
-- a movie that enjoyed a virtual screening that proved to be the setting for the Zack Snyder's Justice League
announcement last year. The black costume, of course, also debuted in that film -- but only in a dream sequence, first appearing "for real" in the forthcoming release.
The film will spotlight a number of things that were originally planned for Snyder's two Justice League
movies, including Darkseid, Granny Goodness, and other characters from Jack Kirby's The New Gods
. Those characters would have interacted quite a bit more with Superman, had Snyder's multi-movie arc for the character played out as expected. (via ComicBook

NEW YORK CITY CINEMAS REOPEN TODAY AFTER A YEAR03/05/21 @ 1:34 pm EST
Steve Rogers. John Walker. Bucky Barnes. Sam Wilson. In honor of the iconic hero’s 80th anniversary, these four heroes who have taken up the mantle of Captain America will team up this June in a brand-new limited series THE UNITED STATES OF CAPTAIN AMERICA.
Written by Christopher Cantwell (Iron Man
) with art by Dale Eaglesham (Fantastic Four
), THE UNITED STATES OF CAPTAIN AMERICA will celebrate the character’s incredible legacy by bringing together various Captains America from throughout the years for a grand adventure to find Captain America’s missing shield and solve the mystery of his masked thief’s plan. Along the way, fans will be introduced to fascinating new heroes who have been inspired to follow in Steve Roger’s footsteps. Joining Cantwell and Eaglesham will be an all-star lineup of diverse and extraordinary creative teams who will dive even deeper into the origins and motivations of these new shield-bearers in special backup stories, starting with a revolutionary tale by writer Josh Trujillo and artist Jan Balzadua. This intriguing examination of the very concepts that define Captain America will explore the powerful impact the hero has had on the world outside your window.
The incredible saga kicks off when Captain America’s shield is stolen. No one understands the value of the shield like those who’ve wielded it, so Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson set out on a road trip across America to chase down the thief. But instead, they find the Captains, everyday people from all walks of life who’ve taken up the mantle of Captain America to defend their communities. And for some reason, the shield thief wants them all dead. Can Sam and Steve get to them first?
“It’s an incredible gift and definitely a creative challenge to take on the character of Captain America, especially during these unprecedented times in our country’s history. With this miniseries we're hoping to explore what the idea of Captain America means at this precise moment—not just on the grand stage of the world—but to everyday and often overlooked communities throughout the United States,” Cantwell explained. “This story is ultimately structured like a “road movie,” harkening back in ways to old Bob Rafelson and Hal Ashby films, with Steve Rogers (and soon Sam Wilson, and later… other key members in Steve’s life) getting to directly interact with those he represents as a symbol and has sworn to protect, but in an up close and personal way he hasn’t experienced in a while. I’m extremely excited to show how the idea of Captain America has been conceptualized and translated by various groups in the country, and for me the juice of the story is Cap reconciling so many interpretations OF himself WITH himself, both as a person and as an icon. This kind of cross-country epic is uniquely American and seems like a fantastic way to celebrate the character’s legacy right now."
Eighty years ago, industry pioneers Jack Kirby and Joe Simon introduced the world to Captain America and Marvel Comics is proud to commemorate this legendary character’s anniversary with this bold new series. Stay tuned for more talent announcements and story details, and don’t miss this exciting new chapter in the Captain America mythos when THE UNITED STATES OF CAPTAIN AMERICA hits stands on June 2nd.

'SUPERMAN AND LOIS' TEMPORARILY MOVES OFF SCHEDULE DUE TO PREVIOUS COVID-19 PAUSE, 'SUPERGIRL' FLIES IN TO HELP03/05/21 @ 1:27 pm EST
New York City, the nation’s leading movie market along with still-shuttered Los Angeles, springs back to life Friday after being flattened by Covid-19 for nearly a year.
A pulse was detected in advance ticket sales with a handful of shows selling out at AMC Entertainment’s flagship Empire 25 theater in Times Square including a 4:30 p.m. Tom & Jerry
and evening screenings of Boogie, Nomadland, Promising Young Woman, Wonder Woman 1984
— as the Christopher Nolan pic released August 12 bends the laws of time. New releases Raya and the Last Dragon
and Chaos Walking
were big sellers on Day One uptown at the AMC Magic Johnson.
One excited customer is NYC mayoral candidate Andrew Yang — he’ll will be heading out for a date night to celebrate. “That dinky, and let’s be honest, tacky, sign in LA can’t mask the fact NYC is the real entertainment capital. So get your popcorn ready, folks, because movie theaters are back in action and it’s date night at the Yang household,” the former Democratic presidential hopeful said in a press advisory. He’ll be hitting the AMC Empire but didn’t say which film.
But at 25% capacity — the limit set by Gov. Andrew Cuomo — sold-out shows don’t mean what they used to. When Cuomo announced the reopening on February 22, he limited theaters to one out of every four available seats and no more than 50 people. That’s a lot of X’s on the seating chart. If you reserve at an AMC, the system automatically blocks out the seats on either side.
As vaccines roll out with increasing efficiency and Covid-19 cases fall in New York (and nationally), some in the industry think New York City could raise the 25% capacity to 50% relatively soon – maybe May or June. Theaters in the rest of New York State are already open at 50% capacity. (via Deadline

'THE MUTANTS': MARVEL STUDIOS REPORTEDLY MOVING TO BRING X-MEN INTO THE MCU03/05/21 @ 7:49 am EST
Boldly going where only men have gone before, Fear the Walking Dead
co-executive producer Kalinda Vazquez is writing an original Star Trek movie for Paramount Pictures, with J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot producing. Should the film get a greenlight, Vazquez would be the first woman ever to pen a Star Trek feature.
There are no details yet on the nature of Vazquez’s approach, including whether it would include any previously established Star Trek characters. But Vazquez has recently written episodes of the burgeoning galaxy of Trek TV series now streaming on Paramount Plus.
In 2019, she wrote "Ask Not,” an episode of Star Trek: Short Treks
in which Capt. Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) tests a Starfleet cadet. And in 2020, Vazquez wrote the teleplay for “Terra Firma, Part 2,” an episode of Star Trek: Discovery
set almost entirely in the Mirror Universe, in which the benevolent Federation is instead the bloodthirsty Terran Empire.
Vazquez’s Star Trek project is the latest in a string of Trek features still under development at Paramount. (via Variety

The Illuminerdi'CAPTAIN MARVEL 2'S ORIGINAL VILLAIN WAS REPORTEDLY KORVAC03/05/21 @ 12:48 pm EST
is reporting of a Marvel Studios-led project produced by Marvel CCO Kevin Feige entitled The Mutants.
It’s currently being developed as a feature film and is intended to be a reboot of the X-Men franchise.
After over a dozen movies produced by 20th Century Fox, Marvel Comics’ mutants are finally taking their rightful place on-screen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With so little information at this time, it’s hard to pin down the capacity in which these exciting characters will arrive, but it’s such an exciting event knowing that the project is indeed in development.
Feige has only mentioned the mutants in passing over the past couple of years since the Fox/Disney merger. Although their inclusion in the MCU was always assumed to happen, nothing such as this has been put out into the world until now.
DF News will update you on the X-Men's entry into the MCU as information becomes available.
