Lockhart, and MoreDC Announce New Slate of Young Readers Graphic Novels From Louise Simonson, Ryan North, Jeffrey Brown, laudia Gray, Julie Maroh, E. Lockhart, and More

During today’s Book Buzz panel at the American Library Association’s (ALA) annual convention in Washington D.C., DC announced plans to expand its Books for Young Readers program with an extensive new graphic novel slate geared toward young adults and middle grade readers. The new titles revealed today are scheduled to debut from 2020 through 2021 and feature stories starring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and more of DC’s most iconic characters, written and illustrated by some of the biggest names in the young adult (YA) and middle grade publishing space.

As standalone stories, DC’s YA and middle grade graphic novels are not part of DC’s ongoing comic book continuity and completely accessible to new fans. DC’s YA titles feature thought-provoking stories for readers ages 13 and up that focus on everyday aspirations, struggles, and triumphs. DC’s middle grade graphic novels are geared toward readers ages 8-12 and tell stories focused on friends, family, and growing up.

DC also announced on-sale dates and gave panel attendees a first look at covers and synopses for several middle grade and YA titles debuting in spring 2020. The above image gallery features artwork for spring 2020 middle grade titles by artists Dustin Nguyen (BATMAN TALES: ONCE UPON A CRIME), Yoshi Yoshitani (ZATANNA & THE HOUSE OF SECRETS), Marcelo DiChiara (BATMAN: OVERDRIVE), Agnes Garbowska (DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: POWERLESS), Art Baltazar (ARKHAMANIACS), and Dustin Hansen (MY VIDEO GAME ATE MY HOMEWORK).

TEYONAH PARRIS CAST AS THE ADULT MONICA RAMBEAU

Source: Deadline | Categories: Marvel | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment




Deadline reports that Teyonah Parris has been cast as an adult Monica Rambeau for the coming Disney+ series WandaVision, involving the titular android Avenger (Paul Bettany) and the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).

A juvenile version of the Rambeau character was part of the Captain Marvel film, which took place in 1995. Comics readers will recall that Monica was once called Captain Marvel herself as a member of the Avengers, and actually led the team under the sponsorship of Captain America.

The events of WandaVision will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
MARVEL'S 'ETERNALS': FIRST LOOK REVEALED

A piece of key art from Marvel Studios' much-discussed coming film of Jack Kirby's second visit to Marvel Comics, The Eternals, has been released online. It is our first look at the MCU reimagining, although the Celestials have been reffed several times in the cosmic MCU.

In their full Kirby glory, the gigantic Celestials -- key to creation of both the Eternals and their rivals, the Deviants -- walk the surface of a planet (maybe a young Earth?).

The Eternals is set for release on November 6, 2020.

‘THE FLASH’: SENDHIL RAMAMURTHY TO PLAY DC VILLAIN BLOODWORK

Sendhil-Ramamurthy-Bloodwork

Deadline reports that a new villain is headed to Central City. Former Heroes star Sendhil Ramamurthy is set for the recurring role of Dr. Ramsey Rosso, aka DC villain Bloodwork, in the upcoming sixth season of The CW’s The Flash.

Ramamurthy’s Dr. Ramsey Rosso is a brilliant physician with a genius intellect, and the world’s leading expert on hematological oncology. A former colleague of S.T.A.R. Labs’ Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Rosso rekindles their friendship after they are reunited by an unexpected event. But their longtime bond is quickly shattered when the doctor’s desire to defy the laws of nature takes him down a dark path…one that transforms Rosso from an old friend into the most chilling villain Team Flash has ever faced: the monstrous Bloodwork.

The series returns for season 6 on Tuesday, October 8 at 8/7c on The CW.

'BLADE' BEING REBOOTED FOR MCU WITH MAHERSHALA ALI; ‘FANTASTIC FOUR’ ALSO IN THE WORKS

Mahershala Ali Blade

Deadline reports one of the true surprises, IMHO, of the Marvel Comic-Con session: that two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali is set to play Blade in a reboot from Kevin Feige’s MCU.

No other details were revealed.

The original from New Line Cinema starred Wesley Snipes and featured Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan's hybrid vampire/vampire slayer from Marvel's Tomb of Dracula.

Snipes' Blade was an R-rated film, so it will be interesting to see if Disney’s MCU goes for a version like that. New Line churned out three films.

Feige also promised that other titles on the horizon include a Fantastic Four reboot, with Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Captain Marvel 2, and Mutants on the horizon beyond 2021. No other details were given on those movies.

Jane is plain no more!

MCU is going the comic book route, Deadline reported Saturday night, as Natalie Portman becomes female Thor in Thor 4. She played Jane Foster in the first two Thor movies. The film will open in Fall 2021.

Returning director Taika Waititi was on hand to talk about Thor 4 along with Tessa Thompson who played Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok along with Chris Hemsworth. Valkyrie will be “re-investing in her people” and rebuilding Asgard, said Thompson.

Ironically, in the comics, Jane Foster has recently become Valkyrie!

And what’s happened to MCU's male Thor post-Endgame? “He’s heading to the 7-11 for a little Netflix subscription and at this point he might be on the couch, who knows?” said Hemsworth.

Doctor Strange

A sequel to Doctor Strange was announced as expected on Saturday at Marvel’s Comic-Con panel — what we didn’t see coming was the tone.

Director Scott Derrickson said the film, titled Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, will mine the original comics and play up “the gothic, the horror.” Derrickson said it will lead Benedict Cumberbatch to dark and damaging places, though he will have company in Elizabeth Olsen, who will reprise her role as the Scarlet Witch.

The events of her Disney+ series Wandavision will lead her to Doctor Strange’s doorstep, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said. (via Variety)

Awkwafina was also cast in the movie that will be directed by Destin Daniel Cretton.

Canadian actor Simu Liu, who is best known for his role on CBC sitcom Kim's Convenience, has been set to star in Marvel Studios' Shang-Chi, playing the titular character. Also joining the movie will be Crazy Rich Asians star Awkwafina and veteran actor Tony Leung.

THR reported on the announcements made at Marvel's presentation at Comic-Con in the cavernous Hall H arena, where Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said the movie's full title would be Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and would be hitting theaters in Feb. 12, 2021.

Destin Daniel Cretton is directing the stand-alone movie which the studio hopes can be a cultural breakthrough in the same way Black Panther was in 2018.

King Kirby's second-gen Marvel creation is coming to the big screen!

At SDCC, the first film announced at Marvel’s presentation on Saturday, unarguably the hottest ticket of the weekend, confirmed months of speculation by unveiling cast of The Eternals: Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Brian Tyree Henry, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff and Don Lee will star as 35,000-year-old aliens.

“This movie will allow those who have never felt represented in movies, in this case superheroes, to be represented. I love my diverse family,” Hayek said on stage.

A release date for the movie has also been revealed: November 6, 2020. (via Variety)
