#SDCC2017 New 'Justice League' Trailer, New Slate of Films, and The Flash Reaches 'Flashpoint'

During Warner Bros.’ panel in the famed Hall H of the San Diego Comic Con, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, and Ray Fisher introduced new footage from Zack Snyder’s upcoming film, Justice League.


With over four minutes of footage, some seen before, there's an expansive overview of the film without giving away how Superman returns. One scene teases the return of someone presumably Superman but it remains a mystery. The trailer also confirms that Justice League will return to the island of Themyscira, the home of Wonder Woman, featuring footage of Connie Nielsen’s Queen Hippolyta. Wonder Woman kicks the ass of armed robbers, Aquaman casually surfs the backside of a parademon, Cyborg relieves Alfred of flying duties, Batman looks as menacing as ever and we get a glimpse of the big baddie, Steppenwolf.


Other news and notes from Saturday's WB/DC panel:

A montage of logos and characters, with no release dates given, revealed an updated slate of nine upcoming DCEU films (in the order they were revealed).

Aquaman
Shazam
Suicide Squad 2
The Batman
Justice League Dark
Batgirl
Green Lantern Corps
The Flash / Flashpoint
Wonder Woman 2


Aquaman director James Wan introduced a clip via video that featured two fishermen watching in amazement as a massive fleet of Atlantean ships passed underneath them. Momoa later explained that the ships belonged to Ocean Master.

Aquaman is described as STAR WARS, but underwater. "Aquaman’s not accepted on land or sea. He's sensitive. He’s a big onion and we’re just peeling it away. He’s just a big teddy bear," said Momoa.

The Flash will use the story arc from the 2011 crossover comic book series called "Flashpoint," where the current timeline is compromised changing the world of superheroes completely. The sequel to Wonder Woman was confirmed and Batgirl enters the slate for the first time. What happened to the Cyborg movie though? We also see Justice League Dark get a vote of confidence despite its past uncertainty. Shazam officially gets slotted after Aquaman confirming reports that it'll be going into production early next year.


Following a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter that Affleck was attempting to gracefully bow out of playing Batman in future movies, Affleck made it abundantly clear he is playing the Dark Knight for Matt Reeves' film."Let me be clear. I'm the luckiest guy. Batman is the coolest f—ing part in any universe, DC, Marvel," he said.

"I'm so excited to do it. I think there's this misconception that because I'm not directing it I'm not doing it," he said during the panel for Justice League at San Diego Comic-Con. "But I'm so excited to be Batman."

Justice League will hit theaters on Nov. 17.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

REVIEW: 'Death or Glory' #2 by Rick Remender and Bengal

After a raucous debut, 'Death and Glory' takes a weird turn. Like a really weird turn. Imagine David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino had a baby and out came out issue two of this new series from Rick Remender and Bengal. The question is is that a good or bad thing?


DEATH OR GLORY #2  
Writer: Rick Remender Artist: Bengal Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: June 6, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
With a botched heist job, a bullet in her side, and all her money gone, Glory wrestles with what to do next. The cargo her ex-husband was trafficking wasn't drugs but people and after putting them all safely on a bus to Arizona, she's broke and being attended to by one of the Brazilians that stayed behind. Her scheme was pretty straight-forward - rob the money that the dirty sheriff was going to transport and use it for her dad's surgery. Easy peasy. Then it all went to hell as the sheriff recognized her, she dropped the money, and now no one is happy, not the sheri…
