The Roundup: The Beginning of Forever

We’re getting things started with a BOOM! as the debut issue of Infinity Man and the Forever People hits stands. Issue #1 begins in the far recesses of outer space, in the floating city of New Genesis, but it doesn’t take long for the action to rocket to earth. Sorry, that’s inaccurate. It doesn’t take long for the action to BOOM TUBE to earth.

The Roundup: The Past is a Blast

How would we describe this week? Groovy, man, groovy.

This week Batman’s past and present collide in the best way possible with the release of BATMAN ’66 MEETS THE GREEN HORNET #1, the first print issue of the smash retro-era mashup brought to you by the remarkable creative team of Kevin Smith, Ralph Garman, Ty Templeton and Alex Ross.

TV ALERT: An Early Look at iZombie

With new trailers for Gotham, Constantine and The Flash hitting the web last week, along with your first look at Ben Affleck’s batsuit and the explosive finale for Arrow, you could be forgiven for forgetting about DC Entertainment’s fourth new TV show to be greenlit for the 2014-2015 TV season—iZombie. Especially since The CW hasn’t yet released a trailer for it. However, that doesn’t mean we haven’t gotten a taste of what it’ll look like.

Constantine (2014 - Present)

John Constantine is a man waging war against the forces of darkness — from both within himself and the outside world. An irreverent, working-class con man and occult expert, he’s an experienced exorcist and demonologist with an extensive list of supernatural contacts, with their own paranormal talents and abilities.

Following the aftermath of a tragic incident, Constantine has voluntarily checked himself into an asylum and sworn off investigating matters of the supernatural. But when a cryptic message calls him out to reluctantly resume his old life, he finds himself allying with Manny, a rogue warrior angel, and Chas, Constantine’s giant childhood protector — the only friend who’s managed to stay alive. Based upon characters published by DC Entertainment and executive produced by Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist) and David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight films), CONSTANTINE reflects the lore of the fan-favorite comic, combining noirish storytelling with the evolving mythology of John Constantine, a morally challenged character who doesn’t come down on the side of either good or evil…but ultimately might be the only thing defending us against the dark forces from beyond.

Constantine - Official Trailer

Based on the wildly popular comic book series Hellblazer from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell... hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight - or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he's decided to leave his do-gooder life behind. But when demons target Liv, the daughter of one of Constantine's oldest friends, he's reluctantly thrust back into the fray - and he'll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it's revealed that Liv's "second sight," an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences, is a threat to a mysterious new evil that's rising in the shadows. And now it's not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world - and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows... maybe there's hope for him and his soul after all.

From Executive Producer David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight Rises) and director Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, The Descent) comes a dark new thriller that proves fighting evil is a hell of a job.
