First Look At Matt Ryan as John Constantine

CONSTANTINE First Official Image_5321deca57a783.18223099

With production underway on Constantine, NBC’s new pilot from executive producers Daniel Cerone & David S. Goyer and director Neil Marshall, NBC, Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment have released the first image of series star Matt Ryan in character as John Constantine.

“I’ve been a fan of John Constantine since he was first introduced in 1985. This Constantine, envisioned by Neil Marshall and embodied by Matt Ryan, looks like he sprang directly from the comics’ covers. Fans old and new are going to be in for a treat,” said executive producer David S. Goyer.

Constantine stars UK native Matt Ryan (Layer Cake, The Tudors, Torchwood) and follows enigmatic and irreverent Liverpool con-man-turned-occult-detective John Constantine, who is reluctantly thrust into the role of defending our world against dark forces from beyond. As DC Comics and Vertigo fans know, the character of John Constantine made his debut as a supporting character in Swamp Thing in 1985, before going on to star in Vertigo’s bestselling Hellblazer as well as his currently ongoing, self-titled series set within The New 52.

The Constantine pilot is executive produced by Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist, Dexter) and David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight films, Man of Steel). Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) is directing from a teleplay by Daniel Cerone, with story by Daniel Cerone & David S. Goyer.

Constantine is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television, and is based upon characters published by DC Comics.

Batman and The Green Hornet Team Up For A Comic Book Crossover By Kevin Smith & Ralph Garmin

1394502118000-XXX-BATMAN-GREEN-HORNET-COMICS-jy-3150-

Filmmaker and comic-book writer Kevin Smith teams with fellow Bat-fan, comedian and KROQ radio personality Ralph Garman, for a DC Comics/Dynamite Entertainment crossover comic book set in the groovy days of the superheroes’ 1960s TV shows. 

Batman ’66 Meets the Green Hornet launches as a 12-part, digital-first biweekly series beginning May 21,2014 and will debut in comic shops as a print comic on June 4, 2014.

1394501902000-XXX-BATMAN-GREEN-HORNET-COMICS-jy-3158-

Teaming with artist Ty Templeton, Smith and Garman are treating the story like a missing “lost” sequel to the 1967 Batman two-parter that brought the Hornet and Kato to Gotham City to foil a counterfeit-stamp ring run by the mustachioed, pink-suited villain Colonel Gumm (Roger C. Carmel).

Alex Ross’ painted cover to “Batman ’66 Meets The Green Hornet” gives new life to the characters from the ’60s shows: clockwise from top, Batman (played by Adam West), Kato (Bruce Lee), Green Hornet (Van Williams) and Robin (Burt Ward).

Earliest Known Superman Cover Art Brings $286,800 In Public Auction

The earliest Superman cover art known to exist – Fred Guardineer’s action-packed tableau from 1939 of the Man of Steel from Action Comics # 15 – brought $286,800 at Heritage Auctions on February 22, 2014 in New York.

“Guardineer’s cover is the earliest Superman cover art in existence,” said Ed Jaster, Senior Vice President at Heritage, “and an absolute treasure of comics history. A price like this shows just how much collectors covet a rarity like this.”

The Action #15 cover depicts Superman in full hero mode, saving a distressed U.S. Submarine just a few feet from a presumably bad end in the depths of the ocean, without seemingly an ounce of strain.

It was purchased by Richard Evans, of Houston, TX, who owns Bedrock City Comics Company. He has said that he plans to display the cover in his shop.

DC Collectibles Unveils New Batman: The Animated Series & The New Adventures of Batman Action Figure Line

A new collector’s line of 6-inch action figures based on writer Paul Dini and animator Bruce Timm’s Batman: The Animated Series and The New Adventures of Batman shows from the 1990s are being released from DC Collectibles in November, just in time for the holiday season.

The toys (priced at $24.95 each), which include a first wave of Catwoman from the earlier Batman series (1992-95) and Batman, Two-Face and Mr. Freeze from New Adventures (1997-99), will be on display this weekend at Toy Fair in New York City.

The line of figures will take designs from the original artwork models. Timm’s animation style was used in small-scale toys in the ’90s when the series aired on Fox and more recent superhero lines, too — it’s an amalgamation of classic Disney cartoons like Sleeping Beauty, the comic-book influence of artists Jack Kirby, Wally Wood, Harvey Kurtzman and Dan DeCarlo, some stylistic tricks Timm picked up working on on Mighty Mouse cartoons, and Alex Toth’s Hanna-Barbera designs for Birdman and Space Ghost.
