PREVIEW: 'BLACK [AF] DEVIL'S DYE' by Vita Ayala and Liana Kangas

 This latest BLACK [AF] collected mini-series is written by breakout star Vita Ayala ( New Mutants, X-Men: Children Of The Atom, Morbius, Bitch Planet, The Wilds ) and rising star artist Liana Kangas ( She Said Destroy ).   When a new drug called VANTA hits the streets, word is it's the hottest thing since Ecstacy. For regular people, it has all the highs and none of the lows of traditional drugs. There is some fine print, however - for empowered Black folks, the drug causes a total and violent loss of control. The Project sends Indigo to investigate, and it soon becomes apparent that this is more than just a new designer distraction for the masses. Indigo together with former Detective Ellen Waters race to find the source of the substance poisoning their people, before it's too late!   The superhero universe where only Black people have superpowers continues to expand, for the first time with a new creative team building onto the exciting world created by Kwanza Osajyefo, Tim

Connie Nielsen Cast as Wonder Woman's Mother Hippolyta


The already in production film 'Wonder Woman' just added Princess Diana's mother Hippolyta by casting Connie Nielsen (Gladiator, The Good Wife, The Following). The Queen of the Amazons will guide Gal Gadot as the titular hero and joins the cast that includes Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Danny Huston, Robin Wright, David Thewlis and Ewen Bremner.

The Patty Jenkins-directed superhero epic has started filming in London as evidenced by set photos and Pine has confirmed that part of the movie will take place during World War I. 


Nicole Kidman had been originally sought to play Hippolyta but scheduling conflicts with her HBO project forced her to pass. Wright's role was unclear and many had speculated to be Wonder Woman's mother but now we know she'll be playing her aunt with Nielsen on board. 

'Wonder Woman' is scheduled for release on June 23, 2017.
