Another Tuesday, another awesome new episode of DC All Access! This week, DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns talks to us about the five new DC TV shows that are currently in development. Plus, we uncover the secrets to be found in the mysterious new Batman Eternal illustration released earlier today, villain proof our homes with the help of Vine sensation BatDad, and give away some Aquaman hardcovers signed by Johns.
If you caught Blair Herter’s conversation with Geoff Johns in this morning’s new episode of “DC All Access” (or if you’ve been following the entertainment news over the past few months), you know that DC Entertainment currently has five television shows in development. While some of them are based on well-known DC characters, a few focus on characters that are a bit more obscure. However, they all have their roots in serialized comics.
