It was back in April that I first posted news about DC SUPER HERO GIRLS here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, and tonight the first elements of this exciting new initiative have emerged. DC SUPER HERO GIRLS is a true transmedia property created by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products in partnership with Mattel - an all-new world created for girls "where they can play, watch, read and be inspired to discover their full super power potential alongside legendary DC Comics female Super Heroes, including Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl, in this all-new universe that was created just for them." The Global Launch takes place this month, and DC SUPER HERO GIRLS will have a massive presence at New York Comic-Con next week. Check out the first video and images below, along with the full announcement.

If there wasn't a certain film called STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS set for release this December, I'd try using my time-shaper to fast-forward right to March 25, 2016 to see my two favorite superheroes battle it out on the big screen. See, BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE has me conflicted, if only because SUPERMAN was my favorite superhero during my religious reading of comic books in the 1980s... but then Tim Burton's 1989 BATMAN film bumped the caped crusader into the top spot, where he's forever remained. Personally, I believe it's because my own personality is closer to that of BATMAN and his alter-ego, BRUCE WAYNE... but knowing that they'll be going head-to-head is still a weird thing - but one I look forward to. Today, EMPIRE Magazine unleashed a trio of new images that will be featured in their September issue (get it here). Take a look...

2016 is already shaping up to be a huge year for fans of DC Comics, with DC SUPER HERO GIRLS rolling out, BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE hitting theaters, and the grownups-only SUICIDE SQUAD following down the line. For the toy aisles, there's a new addition that's just been revealed, and it comes from some old "friends."

According to Director Zack Snyder, the "big rule" he and his team on BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE "broke" was putting Gotham City and Metropolis next to each other. "They're sister cities - it's like Oakland vs. San Francisco," he states. This new dynamic was on display in new footage unveiled as part of an all-new trailer at Comic-Con International by Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Comics, bringing out an appearance by the cast of the film, which hits theaters on March 25, 2016. Check it out below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine!

Next year, The CW is getting even more heroic with DC's LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, a new series about a team of time-traveling heroes and villains set in the same world as THE FLASH and ARROW. Now I feel like I have some real catching up to do on those shows ("time" has been a personal enemy to my own viewing) as LEGENDS will bring forth THE ATOM (Former SUPERMAN Brandon Routh), FIRESTORM (Victor Garber), WHITE CANARY (Caity Lotz), HAWKGIRL (Ciara Renee), RIP HUNTER (Arthur Darvill), CAPTAIN COLD (Wentworth Miller) and HEATWAVE (Dominic Purcell). Check out a First-look trailer below...

It's a pretty strange time for movie fans - particularly fans of comic-based films. The past few weeks have seen an extraordinary amount of teasers and reveals from things here (AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON scored the second-biggest U.S. debut ever this weekend) and on the way (BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, FANTASTIC FOUR, ANT-MAN, etc.). After revealing Jared Leto as The Joker  from the currently-lensing SUICIDE SQUAD via twitter last week, filmmaker David Ayer was back with more tweets today, first dropping a look at a nearly-complete cast photo, and then a solo shot of Will Smith masked and ready to rock as Deadshot from the DC Comics-based project. Check these out...
