Greetings Needless Essential Friends and Family. I volunteered to track the latest news on when our most anticipated movies will finally be released post lock down. I hope to update this article weekly. (Unless there is no news to share of course.) Let us know in the comments if I missed a movie you think
This is breaking news folks! EE has revealed the new Spin Masters Batman line! Remember Mattel gave up the DC license a while back and Spin Master is one of two license holders. The other one being McFarlane Toys. Check out the video below and look for more info from Toy Fair in February!
Harleen is ftom DC's Black Label line, giving us a new look at the origin of Harley Quinn. It's well established that Psychiatrist Harleen Quinzel was treating the Joker in Arkham Asylum. The Clown Prince of Crime managed to draw the already unbalanced doctor across the line into becoming his accomplice.
The Internet blew up recently when Tony Isabella posted to Facebook that he doesn't care for Batman. It's an opinion I've heard before, but not by someone that actually has worked on super-hero comics.
First, I have to say that I love when we refer to him as "The Batman." I also love when high-profile writers, known for different takes on characters try on one of the iconic characters. Warren Ellis is amazing on his own, but pairing him once again with Bryan Hitch, well, you know I'm gonna read it.
My fascination with a multiverse hasn't been to the forefront in a while. However, in going back over my coverage of the Multiversity Guidebook, I was really fond of Earth-38. That Earth is based entirely on the series of Elseworlds series Superman & Batman: Generations. The premise of the series is that Superman and Batman debuted in 1939 and aged in real time. Many of their adventures would mirror the stories as they were published. Of course, the fact that the characters and their supporting casts aged meant that some stories wouldn't be the same.
