Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, with J.K.

But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Man of Steel), the screenplay is by Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio. The producers are Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns.

Dark Knight III: The Master Race Hardcover

One of the most highly anticipated sequels of all-time is finally here in Dark Knight III: The Master Race!

In 1986, Frank Miller introduced his iconic take on Batman and changed the face of comics forever. Now, three decades after Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Miller himself has returned with a third chapter to his groundbreaking saga.

Dark Knight III: The Master Race continues Frank Miller’s landmark Dark Knight Saga that began with 1986’s The Dark Knight Returns and continued with its 2001-2002 sequel The Dark Knight Strikes Again. Co-written by Brian Azzarello and drawn by Andy Kubert and Klaus Janson, Dark Knight III: The Master Race returns to a world gone awry left in the aftermath of the toppling of Lex Luthor and the apparent death… of Batman himself? Then who will save Gotham City and the rest of the planet against the mysterious Master Race?

Also collected in this graphic novel are the nine mini-comics that originally appeared in the monthly periodical release of Dark Knight III: The Master Race, each of which focuses on a different character from within the world of Miller’s Dark Knight. The minicomics are also written by Miller and Azzarello and will be drawn by some of the greatest artists currently working in comics, including Miller himself, Eduardo Risso and John Romita, Jr.!

Collected here are all nine chapters of Dark Knight III: The Master Race as well as the nine mini-comics.

The hardcover will be released in September 2017.

Legion Season 2 Will Return To FX In 2018

FX has just revealed that Legion season 2 is on the way! The critically acclaimed Marvel drama series hails from Noah Hawley, the creative force behind FX’s hit Fargo. Legion marks one of the most-watched new cable dramas of the past year.

Based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, Legion tells the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.

“The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement,” reads a statement from Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions. “More than a new series, ‘Legion’ is a wholly original take on the super hero genre. Our thanks to Noah Hawley for taking the creative risks and shattering expectations. It’s a privilege to work again with Noah, his producing partners, the outstanding cast and our partners at Marvel Television on another season of ‘Legion’.”

“We are thrilled there will be a new season of ‘Legion’,” says Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television.”Noah’s spectacular take on David Haller and all the other characters he brought to life makes us ache for more. We’re particularly proud of our partners at FX and the success we share on our first TV series together.”

Hawley will continue as Executive Producer on Legion season 2, along with Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory and John Cameron. Legion is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.

Chris Hardwick’s ID10T Festival

Chris Hardwick has decided to create and host a new music, comedy and comic book festival called ID10T. The festival will take place at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Silicon Valley, June 24-25.

With bands like Weezer, Ok Go, Car Seat Headrest, Girl Talk, and TV on the Radio on the music side and comedians like Demetri Martin, Michael Ian Black, Nikki Glaser, Garfunkel and Oates, and Michael Che on the comedy side, this event is going to be packed with a ton of talented people.

There will also be a Mad Decent dance tent featuring people like Madeon, Zeds Dead, and Troyboi to keep the party going.

Of course, what makes a great festival isn’t just great acts. It’s creating a holistic experience for guests, mixing the festival spirit with a bit of Comic-Con indebted convention fun. So not only is cosplay encouraged for ID10T, but you can expect to see exhibitors like Boom! Studios, Oni Press, Valiant Comics, and Insight Editions, among others. The event is also still accepting exhibitor applicants, so that list will definitely continue to grow.

ID10T will be a fantastic marriage of all the things you love about concerts, live comedy, with a dash of Comic-Con.
