'SANDMAN' AUDIO PRODUCTION COMES TO LIFE WITH NEW ART AND TRAILER07/06/20 @ 12:27 pm EST
It looks like neither time nor space (nor presumed fatalities) will keep anyone from participating in this season’s five-part Arrowverse crossover. The CW has released the first teaser for “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” which finds a slew of supers suiting up for battle.
The 15-second video includes a dramatic shot of J’onn J’onnz (the Martian Manhunter), Sara Lance (White Canary), Barry Allen (The Flash), Kara Danvers (Supergirl), Lex Luthor — who apparently got a new lease on life from The Monitor’s visit in Supergirl
‘s fourth season finale — and Kate Kane (Batwoman), looking ready to rumble. Though somewhat difficult to make out, it also appears that newcomer Ryan Choi (played by Osric Chau) is standing by their side. (via TV Line

: Sunday, Dec. 8 at 8 pm (special time)Batwoman

'THE EPIC TALES OF CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS' TRAINS FOR SPACE TRAVEL IN NEW CLIP07/06/20 @ 12:14 pm EST
“I am moving through your dreams…”
We’re just over a week away from the debut of Audible’s ambitious new audio production of The Sandman
and as if we weren’t already too excited to sleep (sorry, Morpheus!), we now have the official cover art and an enticing new trailer to share with all of you.Just to recap, Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed series of graphic novels will soon be available as an Audible Original adapted and directed by visionary audio producer Dirk Maggs. Gaiman is intimately involved as the project’s Creative Director, Executive Producer and Narrator. Actor James McAvoy will lead the impressive cast as Morpheus along with Kat Dennings as Death, Michael Sheen as Lucifer, Taron Egerton as John Constantine and many, many more. We’ve already gotten one trailer for The Sandman’s
audio production, but Audible has released a brand new one, which features some dramatic, dreamlike visuals along with our first taste of McAvoy in the starring role.
We also have our first look at the production’s cover art. Fans of both the original Vertigo comic series and the bestselling graphic novel collections that followed know that cover art is pretty important when it comes to The Sandman,
so it’s great to see this latest take step up with a breathtakingly cosmic cover image that appropriately reflects the mythic nature of Gaiman’s tale.
Audible’s The Sandman
adapts the first three graphic novels in Gaiman’s series and is due to be released on July 15. That gives you just enough time to pre-order it at Audible.com/TheSandman and to binge read your copies of the books.

The Direct'THE BATMAN', 'MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 7', OTHER BLOCKBUSTER SHOOTS TO RESUME IN UK07/05/20 @ 10:53 pm EST
is reporting a rumor that a live-action Constantine movie is in development at Warner Bros., with Bad Robot serving as the production company and JJ Abrams attached as a producer. The film will have a similar feel and tone to Bad Robot's other upcoming projects, which include the Justice League Dark
HBO Max show as well as the Zatanna movie.
It is currently unknown whether this will be a soft reboot with Keanu Reeves reprising the titular role, or if this will be a complete reboot with a new actor portraying the character.
This potential development serves as a welcome-back for the character of John Constantine, who has seen his fair share of adaptations. Keanu Reeves was the first to portray the character in live-action in the 2005 film Constantine
, and actor Matt Ryan portrayed the occult detective in his own television series while making appearances on Arrow
and eventually joining the cast of Legends of Tomorrow

will be among several Hollywood blockbusters to resume filming in the United Kingdom following exemption of quarantine rules, Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said Sunday.
During the weekend press conference, Dowden said he personally spoke with Tom Cruise about the exemption. Shooting in England for the latest in the franchise was suspended when the COVID-19 pandemic forced production to shut down.
Produced by Skydance for Paramount Pictures, Mission: Impossible 7
was originally set for a July 2021 release but was pushed back to November of that year due to filming delays caused by the pandemic. Now, crew members for the film will be allowed to return to England to finish filming at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in Hertfordshire, as the British government is granting a number of film and TV productions exemption from following quarantine rules. (via The Wrap

ANDY SERKIS RETURNING TO MIDDLE EARTH IN NEW 'THE HOBBIT' AUDIOBOOK07/05/20 @ 10:29 pm EST
Kyoto Animation has announced that it will stream a memorial video on its YouTube channel on July 18 to mark the one-year anniversary of the devastating fire that burned down the company's Studio 1 building, killing 36 people and injuring 33 others. The video will be streamed in Japanese only at 10:30am JST and will be available throughout the day after the streaming.
On July 18 last year, a devastating fire broke out at Kyoto Animation's Studio 1 building. A total of 70 people were inside the building at the time. Kyoto Prefectural Police apprehended the then 41-year-old suspect who allegedly used gasoline to start the fire, and they are investigating the case as arson. Police arrested the suspect on May 27 after 10 months of hospital care due to injuries.
Demolition work on Kyoto Animation's Studio 1 building concluded on April 28. Residents of the Fushimi Ward in Kyoto have previously sent a written request to Kyoto Animation not to build a monument or a park at the site, expressing concern that the large number of visitors that a memorial site could bring would affect the tranquility of the neighborhood.

AMAZON UNVEILS HILARITY-FUELED 'THE BOYS' SEASON 1 BLOOPER REEL07/05/20 @ 4:22 pm EST
Zack Snyder has been giving his fans all the goods lately. In addition to the long-awaited “Snyder Cut” of Justice League
coming next year, HBO Max has now released the “Ultimate Edition” of the director’s critically panned Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
, and there’s a new poster to go with it.
The Ultimate Edition of Batman v Superman
adds a half-hour of extended and deleted scenes to the film, making it more violent than the PG-13 theatrical cut but also fixing many of the complaints that critics and fans had about the narrative. While the new version maintains Snyder’s polarizing darker portrayal of Batman and Superman, it’s regarded as a noted improvement over the version that hit theaters in March 2016. (via The Wrap
When HBO Max launched in May, the theatrical version was the only one available, but it has since been removed and replaced with the “Ultimate Edition.”
AND the poster!

The Batman Who Laughs is one of the biggest recent additions to the DC Comics mythos, but he's about to get some competition from someone who somehow might be even creepier. That would be Scott Snyder's latest creation The Robin King, who we'll meet in Dark Nights: Death Metal
#2, though we don't have to wait until then to see what he looks like.
Thanks to a new post from DC Nation (via ComicBook
), we can see Riccardo Federici's variant cover for Dark Nights: Death Metal
#3, which revels The Robin King in all his creepy glory, and from the tease by Snyder, The Robin King is actually creepier than The Batman Who Laughs.
The caption for the image came from Snyder himself, who said: "The Robin King is evil in the way the Batman Who Laughs is, but he’s almost scarier to me because he was always that way."Dark Nights: Death Metal
#2 is on sale July 14th from DC Comics, written by Scott Snyder, drawn by Greg Capullo, colored by FCO Plascencia, and inked by Jonathan Glapion. Riccardo Federici's variant cover for Dark Nights: Death Metal #3.
