After shaking up the Dark Knight’s status quo and elevating former police commissioner Jim Gordon to the role of Batman, writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo are now setting their sights on introducing the Dark Knight’s newest adversary—a mysterious new figure known as Mr. Bloom. Little is known about this slim-and-sinister new baddie other than that he’s able and willing to give superpowers to Gotham’s already dangerous underworld, so we thought we’d ask Capullo and Snyder if they could tell us a bit more. One thing’s for sure, however.
We’ve only seen a few seconds of video and a handful of still photos of Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but it’s been more than enough to confirm that we’re in for a much more contemporary take on the character when Zack Snyder’s super-powered blockbuster debuts next March.
Bruce Timm makes his dramatic return to the world of DC Animation this week with the original movie, Justice League: Gods and Monsters. Set in an alternate universe designed from the ground up by Timm, Alan Burnett and the rest of the creative team, it’s a dark, but very compelling reimagining of comics’ premiere super hero team and one of the most original and exciting DC animated movies to date.
