With a new year on the horizon and the holidays upon us, it’s a good time to take a look back at 2014 to remember and remark upon a few of its key DC Entertainment moments. Some of these moments played out on the comic book page or the screen, others were real-life happenings that shaped what we’ll be reading and seeing over the years ahead. If you’re a DC Comics fan or just an entertainment fan in general, they all mattered. It’s been a great year full of both ups and downs, but these are the big ones. These are our DCComics.com “Ten Moments that Mattered” for 2014.
It’s time to break out the popcorn, because it looks like many of your favorite super heroes will soon be coming to the silver screen.
Fans who were online last night got a sweet treat from none other than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder: Our first clear look at the Batmobile. Rugged, yet sleek, with a surprising twin cannon mounted on the hood, it shows influences ranging from the popular Tumbler used in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy to the monstrous tank seen in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.
This year, Batman’s stepping out of the shadows…and into the Comic-Con spotlight. With his 75th Anniversary going strong, Batman is a major presence at San Diego Comic-Con. He’s been seen in comics, film, TV, games, toys and clothing, and it’s all represented within the DC Entertainment booth, particularly in the Batman 75th Anniversary montage wall created for the show. Within this wall, you can spot many images of the Dark Knight, both old and in some cases very new.
As in never before seen.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may still be over a year away, but today we got our first look at Henry Cavill as Superman. It’s a moody image, with Superman standing out in the rain.
Filming is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the highly anticipated action adventure from director Zack Snyder, starring Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman.
