When Bruce Wayne is murdered in DC's Neo-Gotham timeline, Batman Beyond's
Terry McGinnis will hunt down his mentor's killers and bring them to justice.
In Batman: Urban Legends
#7, the death of the original Batman on Earth-12 is one of the different stories teased in the comic anthology showcasing four future versions of Batman, including Batman One Million and Cassandra Cain.
Terry McGinnis became the Batman of the future in the iconic Batman Beyond
animated series. In the show, the new Batman was mentored by an older Bruce Wayne, whose years protecting Gotham took such a physical toll on him, he retired. The success of Batman Beyond

Now, Batman Beyond
is coming back in a story where he's on the hunt for Bruce Wayne's murderers. McGinnis discoverd Bruce's body in the Batcave and begins his hunt. The story comes from the Star Trek: Year Five
writing duo of Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly as they team with artist Max Dunbar, colorist Sebastian Cheng, and letterer Aditya Bidikar. (via Screen Rant

#7 arrives in comic book stores on September 14 from DC Comics.

MARVEL'S WEREWOLF BY NIGHT GETS FEATURETTE10/01/22 @ 1:58 pm EST
Hurricane Ian has hit many people and industries including the comic book world. Florida based comic publisher Scout Comics tweeted out this message: “As many of you may know, Scout HQ is located in Ft. Myers, Florida, and was directly in the path of Hurricane Ian as it made landfall. We wanted to update our fans, creators, and team members now that the storm has passed. First, our team members in the Ft. Myers area and throughout the rest of the state are well. Scout HQ is undamaged. The larger coastal area around Ft. Myers, Charlotte County, has suffered serious devastation with lives lost and damage to property and infrastructure. As the community deals with the repercussions of the hurricane, Scout will be temporarily suspending most administrative operations. Work on our current and future publications will continue moving forward through the hard work of our creators, editors and designers. But delays are expected. Millions are without power and the postal service is unable to operate in certain areas. Any pending shipments from our website will be delayed, but as soon as service resumes our HQ staff will fulfill all orders. Scoutcomics.com
is still accepting new orders and all merchandise will be shipped out as soon as we are fully operational. Our hearts go out to all the people affected by this storm. Comic Impressions, our local printer, and part of the extended Scout family, has suffered serious damage to their facility. Thankfully everyone in the Comic Impressions team and their families are well. We will post more updates soon.”

Marvel is starting to promote their upcoming Disney+ special, Werewolf by Night

who is an award-winning composer who has dabbled in directing short films. It stars Gael Garcia Bernal

, who says: “We’re introducing a world that will ultimately become quite important to the MCU.” So don’t sleep on this homage to classic horror movies as it sounds like we may be seeing the Werewolf, Bloodstone and even Man-Thing again.

WOULD CHRISTIAN BALE SUIT UP FOR STAR WARS?10/01/22 @ 1:26 pm EST
Two interesting bits of information about James Bond
came out at the British Film Institute the other night during a celebration of 60 years of James Bond. Producer Michael G. Wilson
, who runs Eon Productions with Barbara Broccoli
talked about the “new world” that exists now that Amazon has bought MGM. While he said they need to see what happens now but assured everyone that there will always be a Bond. He also stressed that casting for a new OO7 had not begun no matter what industry scoopers are saying. In line with that, Wilson revealed a fun bit of information, that when someone is auditioning for the role, they are given the seduction scene from the 1963 film From Russia with Love
. This is the scene where Sean Connery
finds Soviet military clerk Tatiana Romanova, played by Daniela Bianchi
, in his bed wearing only a velvet choker. They introduce themselves; he compliments her beauty, and she disagrees, saying her mouth is too big. He says, “No, it’s the right size. For me, that is.” And then kisses her. Wilson said that: “Anyone who can bring that scene off is right for Bond. It’s tough to do.”

SONY MAKES DEAL FOR RIGHTS TO TARZAN10/01/22 @ 1:15 pm EST
With his recent turn in the MCU as Gorr the God Butcher, Christian Bale
notches another big franchise in his belt along with this trilogy of Batman
movies with Christopher Nolan
. The Hollywood Reporter
asked the actor recently if he still had desire to be in Star Wars
someday, he responded: “All I ever wanted in Star Wars
was to be in a Star Wars
outfit and hit my head on a door or something as I walked through. The real nerds who watched Star Wars
way too many times always knew about that one scene where the Stormtrooper hits his head on the door as he comes through. I wanted to be that
guy. That was it. But look, if I’m fortunate enough to be more than that, oh man, yeah. What a delight that would be. I’ve still got the figures from when I was little. I also know Kathy Kennedy very well because she was working with Spielberg when I did Empire of the Sun
, and now, she runs the Star Wars
universe.” Doesn’t Taika Waititi
have a Star Wars
movie in the works? Just saying.

'JACK RYAN' SEASON 3 RELEASE DATE FINALLY COMING AFTER 3-YEAR HIATUS09/30/22 @ 1:53 pm EST
Harrison Ford remains as active as ever in the Hollywood landscape, even having just celebrated his 80th birthday in July 2022. In the 2010s, he had a couple of opportunities to reprise his fan-favorite role as Han Solo in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, which is far from the last classic character he’s brought back to life in the 21st century.
Now, in a surprising development, The Direct
reveals that Ford is rumored to be in the running for a role within the ever-expansive Marvel Cinematic Universe, which could come within the next couple of years.
According to the latest rumor, Ford may be involved with Marvel Studios' Thunderbolts
, which premieres in theaters on July 26, 2024.
Ford is (or, at one point, was) Marvel Studios' top choice to play a recast Thunderbolt Ross, a role that has been played by the late William Hurt in five MCU movies. In the comics, Ross is also famously the identity of the so-called Red Hulk.

Robert Eggers’ long-awaited new take on Nosferatu
is gaining some serious momentum as Deadline
reports that Bill Skarsgard is attached to play the titular character and Lily-Rose Depp is in talks to co-star. The pic now is set up at Focus Features, with Eggers directing and penning the script. Jeff Robinov, John Graham, Robert Eggers, Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus are producing.
In the new reimagining, Nosferatu
is a gothic tale of obsession between a haunted young woman (Depp) in 19th century Germany and the ancient Transylvanian vampire (Skarsgard) who stalks her, bringing untold horror with him.
Focus had no comment on the project.
The film has been a passion project of Eggers for years and came close to coming together in 2019 with Anya Taylor-Joy and Harry Styles at Studio 8. The film was put on pause as Studio 8 figured out a budget and talent schedules. Eggers ultimately pushed pause on the movie and moved on to his Viking pic The Northman
, which bowed in April.
