Justice League Movie CONFIRMED! Zack Snyder to Direct

Justice League by Alex Ross
Thats right fans, the time has finally arrived.  Zack Snyder is moving  into Justice League after Man of Steel 2 for a 2017 release!  This isn't really a shock, is it?  I would like to hear the fan reactions to this.  I personally would love to see someone other than Snyder tackle this, I don't really dig his work at all...but I will remain cautiously optimistic.  Your thoughts fans?

Sam Register Promoted to President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series





FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  SAM REGISTER PROMOTED TO PRESIDENT, WARNER BROS. ANIMATION AND WARNER DIGITAL SERIES Creative Executive Adds Oversight of a Newly Formed Live-Action Digital Content Production Unit to His Responsibilities             


BURBANK, Calif. (April 23, 2014) — Warner Bros. Animation’s Sam Register has been promoted to the newly created position of President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series, it was announced today by Warner Bros. Television Group President and Chief Content Officer Peter Roth, to whom Register will report.            

In this new role, Register will head up a newly formed live-action digital content production unit and will now be responsible for spearheading the development and production of original live-action digital series, tapping the creative talent already working at the Studio while also identifying opportunities for collaboration with new writers and producers. In addition to these new responsibilities for live-action digital series development and production, Register will also continue to run the Studio’s television animation unit (WBA) as its new President, after having previously served for six years as WBA’s Executive Vice President, Creative Affairs.            

Peter Roth said: “Sam has done an outstanding job shepherding Warner Bros. Animation over the past six years, reinvigorating one of the most storied and accomplished animation production companies in this industry. His creative instincts coupled with boundless enthusiasm, passion and energy were all key drivers in WBA’s recent successes, and I know that he will bring the same level of leadership and commitment to his new mission of building and expanding our digital series business. The possibilities under his guidance are limitless.”            

Current WBA television series developed and supervised by Register include Teen Titans Go!, The Tom and Jerry Show, and the upcoming Be Cool Scooby-Doo! and Wabbit – A Looney Tunes Production, for Cartoon Network, as well as the forthcoming Mike Tyson Mysteries, for Adult Swim. Register also oversees creative efforts for WBA’s animated shorts, and he works closely with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on the Studio’s original animated movies, including recent titles such as Justice League: War, Son of Batman, Scooby-Doo! Wrestlemania Mystery and more.             

Prior to his promotion, Register had served as WBA’s Executive Vice President, Creative Affairs, since 2008, after having joined the Studio in November 2007 as a producer with a multi-property development and production deal at WBA. During his tenure at WBA, Register oversaw the development and production of new programming and content for all distribution outlets, including traditional animated product for television and promotional use; content for digital platforms such as DCBeyond.com and KidsWB.com; and animated films for the home entertainment marketplace.            

Before joining Warner Bros., Register was a producer and senior animation executive at Cartoon Network for 10 years, overseeing numerous successful program launches and helping to grow CartoonNetwork.com from a small marketing portal to an exciting kids’ entertainment destination.

Product Spotlight: Harley Quinn 1/6 Scale Harley Quinn Figure!

Product Spotlight: Harley Quinn 1/6 Scale Harley Quinn Figure! 



Product Summary:
DC Comics' clown princess of chaos, the incomparable Harley Quinn, makes her long-awaited debut in Sideshow Collectibles' Sixth Scale figure line. Dressed to kill in a detailed fabric bodysuit, fitted corset and jester tights, the charmingly psychotic super villain is ready to hit the town, wreaking her special brand of havoc on the unsuspecting citizens of Gotham. Harley's packing a delightfully dangerous bag of tricks, including her signature wooden mallet, an oversized pop gun, and comically engraved brass knuckles, to name a few. Join the one and only Harley Quinn on her wonderfully deranged spree of bedlam and madness!

Our Take:  The best Harley Quinn doll until now was product by the fine folks at Tonner.  Sideshow has managed to put their own stake in the ground with this amazingly detailed 1/6th scale Harley Quinn figure.  She comes with interchangable heads and a ton of great weapons and alternate hands.  The stand is even fun and full of bloody Harley detail.  This one looks amazing on the shelf and would do justice to any Batman collection.   They have done a great job of capturing both the darkness and playfulness of the character with this one.

New Beware the Batman Footage to Premiere at Wondercon





They say unseen footage will be shown.  Now, this is subjective, because we only had 11 episodes air in the United States, two more on the DVD / Blu-Ray release and a few more have aired overseas for those that can find them for download, so more than likely it will be one of these epsiodes, but we don't have confirmation yet.  I will update you when I find out more.


The full release is below:

Warner Archive Collection presents an incredibly eclectic quartet of panels at WonderCon this coming weekend, April 18-20, spotlighting everything from popular animated super hero TV series and kooky cartoon music to real-life heroes in animation (and back again) and the original transforming toy robots, The GoBots.

The talent on these four panels also covers the entertainment gamut, highlighted by the appearance of renowned screenwriter Steven E. de Souza (Die Hard, 48 HRS.) discussing his 1987 cult classic TV movie, "The Spirit"; beloved animation creators Alan Burnett, Kelly Ward, Giancarlo Volpe and James Tucker; popular voice actor Josh Keaton; and making his first-ever Con appearance, the heralded voice of the GoBots' Leader-1, Lou Richards.

Also notable amongst the panel presentations will be the exhibition of unaired, never-before-seen footage from the animated series, "Beware the Batman" during the "Popular TV Super Heroes Look Better in Blu" panel on Saturday from 11:30am-12:30pm in Room 300DE.

In addition to the four panels, Warner Archive Collection will have an action-packed, informative booth presence on the convention floor of WonderCon. And immediately following the Saturday afternoon panel, the Warner Archive booth will host an autograph signing with Steven E. de Souza starting at approximately 1:15pm. Attached is a headshot of Mr. de Souza.

The Warner Archive Collection panels for WonderCon include:

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD UltraViolet Combo Pack) Review

click the title above to read the full review...

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD UltraViolet Combo Pack) Review



Synopsis: THE HOBBIT BILBO BAGGINS, THE WIZARD GANDALF and 13 Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, continue their journey to reclaim the Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Along the way, they encounter the skin-changer Beorn; giant Spiders of Mirkwood; Wood-elves led by Legolas, Tauriel and King Thranduil; and a mysterious Man named Bard, who smuggles them into Lake-town. Finally reaching the Lonely Mountain, they face their greatest danger – the Dragon Smaug.

Review: It would be an understatement to say that the Hobbit is my favorite book of all time.  I own at least a dozen different printings.  I've read the book to my children and I have even watched the terrible old cartoon. When the Lord of the Rings trilogy was released I was overjoyed..and when I heard that Peter Jackson was back in the helm for the Hobbit...again I was thrilled.  I saw the trailers for the first film and became a bit skeptical, but I found it to be fantastic, even though there were a number of departures from the book that were fairly major, it was still a wonderful film.  The second of the trilogy is the same way, but with even more departures from the original text.  This time around, we finally get Smaug in all his glory!  We watched this one in 3D with our LG 3D TV and 3D Blu-Ray player and it was beyond amazing!  This is without a doubt the most preferred way to view this film.  Whats nice is these huge combo packs give you regular blu-rays too, so you can't watch it in 2D when desired.  We definately recommend picking up this combo pack.  Its without a doubt the best release of the year!

Sofia the First: The Floating Palace DVD Review



Synopsis: Do YOU believe in mermaids? You will - when you set sail on a magical full-length adventure under the sea with Sofia The First! After Sofia helps a little mermaid named Oona, Sofia's amulet grants her the power to transform into a mermaid and visit her new friend's secret underwater kingdom. But when Cedric (disguised as a sea monster) plots to steal Oona's enchanted Mermaid Comb, danger surfaces for both worlds. With a little help from special guest, Princess Ariel, Sofia embarks on an adventure to rescue Oona and prevent a typhoon before it's too late. Overflowing with oceans of song-filled fun - plus three more exciting episodes - "The Floating Palace" proves that when families and friends work together, they can weather any storm and save the day

Review: There are a few shows on television that our four year old goes crazy over...Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Sofia the First!  He LOVES this show more than I can express to you.  This is a new age where cartoons focusing on a young princess don't have to be just for little girls, they can be enjoyed by all.  This new DVD has a special cameo by Ariel, the Little Mermaid!!!  The kids loved seeing her incorporated into the show and its really great when Disney ties it all of their characters together.  This is a great DVD for the little ones in your life!  The show is beyond appropriate and a safe, fun watch for kids.  The other episodes on the DVD set include "Tri-Kingdom Picnic," "Finding Clover," And "Make Way For Miss Nettle".

Review: Ben 10 has been going strong for well over a decade now in one form or another.  This mainstay of Cartoon Network has been a favorites of my sons since he was little, so I'm very familiar with the series.  This latest incarnation, Omniverse, is a great progression of the series and characters.  This DVD, just released this week, is full of hours of content that are great for any Ben 10 fan.  My son absolutely loved it and cannot wait for the next release to add to his collection!  We highly recommend it.
