Beginning in Fall 2015, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Mattel join forces to launch DC Super Hero Girls, an exciting new universe of Super Heroic storytelling that helps build character and confidence, and empowers girls to discover their true potential. Featuring DC Comics’ most powerful and diverse line-up of female characters as relatable teens, DC Super Hero Girls will play out across multiple entertainment content platforms and product categories to create an immersive world.

Developed for girls aged 6-12, DC Super Hero Girls centers on the female Super Heroes and Super-Villains of the DC Comics universe during their formative years—prior to discovering their full super power potential. Featuring a completely new artistic style and aesthetic, DC Comics’ icons such as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumble Bee, Poison Ivy, Katana and many more make their unprecedented teenaged introduction. Each character has her own storyline that explores what teen life is like as a Super Hero, including discovering her unique abilities, nurturing her remarkable powers and mastering the fundamentals of being a hero.

The initial launch of DC Super Hero Girls in Fall 2015 will include an immersive digital experience, original digital content and digital publishing—providing opportunities for girls to interact with characters, learn about the storylines, and engage in customizable play. TV specials, made-for-videos, toys, apparel, books and other product categories will begin to rollout in 2016.

As master toy licensee, Mattel is collaborating with DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Bros. Consumer Products on DC Super Hero Girls’ narrative creation, interactive digital activations and ultimately a toy line launching in 2016.

11182150_1618267091742861_5821361017400491446_n

Netflix announced today that they’ve picked up the series, Daredevil for a second season with a premiere planned for 2016.

Doug Petrie (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “American Horror Story”) and Marco Ramirez (“Sons of Anarchy”), who worked closely with Executive Producers Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard during the first season, will serve as showrunners for season two. Goddard, Petrie and Ramirez will serve as Executive Producers for season two alongside Jeph Loeb.

“While previous commitments unfortunately prevent me from continuing on with Daredevil into its second season, I could not be happier that Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez are carrying the torch,” says DeKnight. “They were invaluable collaborators during our first season, and I for one can’t wait to see what they do with the show moving forward.”

Starring Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Bob Gunton (Leland Owlsely aka The Owl), Vondie Curtis Hall (Ben Urich), Toby Leonard Moore (Wesley, Wilson Fisk’s right hand man), Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa Fisk), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk), “Marvel’s Daredevil” follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.

The next Marvel series to hit the streaming service will be “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones”. That is targeted to arrive this fall with “Marvel’s Luke Cage” following in 2016. After that, we’re set to get “Marvel’s Iron Fist” and then “Marvel’s The Defenders,” described as “a mini-series event that reimagines a team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.”

MONDO To Release Mulholland Drive Print By Sam Bosma & The Three Stooges: A Plumbing We Will Go Print By Dave Perillo On April 16, 2015

Tomorrow MONDO will release two awesome posters from Sam Bosma and Dave Perillo.

Sam discussed his poster here:

“Like most of David Lynch’s work, the tone of Mulholland Drive shifts smoothly from bizarre to nightmarish and back. The Los Angeles of Mulholland Drive is a dream, sometimes figuratively and sometimes literally. I felt like my best option was to use the chaos of the car crash and Rita’s subsequent descent into Los Angeles to allude to the strange darkness that was to come.” 

And here is what Dave Perillo had to say about his Three Stooges print:

“I have fond memories of watching the Three Stooges with my dad Sunday mornings on the local UHF channel, ‘A Plumbing We Will Go’ being one of my favorites. I really wanted to do something that played off the scene with Curly trapping himself in a framework of pipes and also choose a color palette that had the feel of the old black and white shorts without using just standard black, grays and whites.”

Please follow MONDO on Twitter for the on sale announcement. These posters will be available online at a random time on Thursday, April 16th.

The Poster Posse Pays Tribute To Netfix’s Daredevil

I am on episode six of Netflix’s Daredevil and I may have to binge watch the rest of the series tonight to the sad conclusion when I have to wait until next year for a hopeful season 2. The program is smart, dark, gritty, action packed, well written and may be the best Marvel television show in recent history.

The art collective known as The Poster Posse has sharpened their pencils, painted with pixels and knocked it out of the park again with their tribute to my favorite Marvel comic book character Daredevil. Blind attorney Matt Murdock by day and dark vigilante by night trying to save Hell’s Kitchen came to my attention with Frank Miller’s take on the character in the 80’s which wrapped up in one of my favorite storylines of all time, Born Again!

The Poster Posse captures the duality of the character, his fight for justice and the blind optimism that one man can make a difference. Click HERE to check out the fantastic art. Well done Posse!

The Stars Align To Bring Star Trek And Green Lantern Together This July

st-gl-cvra-notd

IDW Publishing, CBS Consumer Products and DC Entertainment announced today that they will boldly go where no one has gone before…in brightest day, in blackest night. Two iconic franchises will meet this summer in a legendary crossover event with the release of a six-part comic book miniseries, Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War. Both Star Trek and Green Lantern are known for their strong cast of interstellar characters and when they come together for the first time this July, fans new and old are sure to experience a galaxy-sized thrill.

Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War is six-part monthly mini-series and will be written by veteran Star Trek comic writer Mike Johnson with interior art by Angel Hernandez (Infinite Crisis: Fight For The Multiverse, Arrow). Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War #1 will be available in stores and online in July, boasting covers from Gabriel Rodriguez, Francesco Francavilla, Elsa Charretier, and Garry Brown. Following issues will feature covers from an amazing lineup that includes Declan Shalvey, Marc Laming, and more!

“We’ve looked forward to bringing these two iconic universes together for a long time,” said Greg Goldstein, IDW President and COO. “Star Trek and Green Lantern both share so many of the same science-fiction adventure themes and ideals, that a galaxy-spanning crossover like this is simply…logical.”

“Green Lantern is one of the most popular, storied characters in the history of comic books and a modern DC Comics icon.

An entire universe of Green Lanterns and other supporting characters have grown out from his original adventures in the 1940’s, and this series really showcases the intergalactic scope of the franchise,” said Bob Harras, Editor-in-Chief of DC Comics.

A pop culture mainstay for almost 50 years, Star Trek’s fan base continues to grow exponentially with the new feature films in 2009 and 2013. Now all Star Trek fans can watch their favorite U.S.S. Enterprise crew members meet Hal Jordan and the entire Green Lantern Corps in an adventure that spans space, time and all the colors of the spectrum. Set in Star Trek’s 23rd Century, the balance of the universe will be tested when the Green Lantern Corps’ Power Rings come into the possession of certain Star Trek characters while a dark and powerful evil looms around every corner.  Only the combined power of the Green Lantern Corp and the Federation stand any chance of stopping those who worship evil’s might.

aved_teaser_1200x1800_final

The STARZ Original series “Ash vs Evil Dead” released a teaser and poster for the 10-episode first season of the half-hour series.

Ash vs Evil Dead which will film in New Zealand, is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to premiere on STARZ in late 2015.

Bruce Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.

The cast is led by Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) in the role of Ash Williams, Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Jill Marie Jones (“Sleepy Hollow”) as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner, Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past.

Derek Special Official Trailer

DerekSpecial_Vertical_KeyArt_US

Ricky Gervais’ bittersweet comedy-drama Derek returns to Netflix with the one-hour Derek Special! Netflix will make the special available exclusively to its members in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Nordics and Benelux on Friday April 3, 2015 at 12:01am PT. Seasons 1 and 2 of “Derek” are currently streaming.

Derek, for which Gervais was nominated for an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his leading role, centers around Derek Noakes (Gervais), a tender, innocent man whose love for his job at a retirement home shines through. Derek cares deeply for the home’s residents, because they are kind and funny and tell him stories of what life used to be like. Among those in his life are Kev (David Earl), a lovable train wreck who lives with Derek and spends most of his time lazing around the home; and Hannah (Kerry Godliman), a care worker in the home and Derek’s best friend. She is smart, witty and hard-working, and, like Derek, always puts other people first.

In the Derek Special, Tom (Brett Goldstein) has a new job, which allows him to spend more time with Hannah. Will this allow their relationship to flourish? Derek is upset with Hannah for upsetting Kevin, who goes missing, whilst Vicky takes on more responsibilities.
