"Superboy returns to Project Cadmus, where he learns the top-secret genetics lab may have created another Super-clone. Meanwhile, the Justice League convenes at the Watchtower to discuss an important matter."
(Did you get the "Superman I"/Gene Hackman homage? If you did kudos to you Superfan!)
Things are only heating up on Cartoon Network’sYoung Justice, as series producers Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti lay down the groundwork for the season two twenty-episode story arc “Invasion.” That storyline will have the team as well as numerous other DC heroes and villains involved (approximately 120 of them, in fact) as Earth is threatened by several alien species. The network has released a three minute clip that includes highlights from recent episodes, with a glimpse ahead to more of season one and, especially, “Invasion.”
A new era begins with the debut of the oversized, monthly BATMAN BEYOND UNLIMITED, featuring the print debut of the new Justice League Beyond!
In the Batman Beyond chapter, legendary Batman artist Norm Breyfogle returns to draw the Dark Knight of the future with best-selling writer Adam Beechen. In “10,000 Clowns,” an onslaught of new Jokerz is plaguing Gotham City – and the implications of this chaotic clown menace could have disastrous consequences for Terry McGinnis and Bruce Wayne! And the debut of the Justice League Beyond is here, courtesy of the BATMAN: STREETS OF GOTHAM art team of Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs, as the first two digital-first chapters are available in print for the first time! Batman Beyond is a new recruit in the mighty Justice League, but the team will be immediately tested by a very Neo Gotham-related enemy! How will the team work together to combat this threat?
Justice League Doom finds Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg and Batman on their heels when a team of super villains discover and implement the Dark Knight's "contingency plans" for stopping any rogue Justice League member. The story is inspired by Mark Waid's much-heralded "JLA: Tower of Babel."
A "Green Arrow" television series is being planned for The CW with Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg writing and executive producing, EW reports.
Dating all the way back to 1941 when he made his first appearance in "More Fun Comics" #73, Oliver Queen is a billionaire who leads a double life as expert archer and costumed hero Green Arrow. Over the years, Queen has been a member of the Justice League and even Mayor of his hometown, Star City.
Justin Hartley previously played a television version of the character on "Smallville", becoming a regular cast member in later seasons. It's not mentioned whether or not the new series will connect in any way, but it is noted that Hartley is not being sought to play the role at this time.
"Green Arrow" isn't the only DC superhero being planned for the small screen. Plans for a "Booster Gold" pilot were announced late last year with "Blue Beetle," "Deadman" and "Spectre" series still believed to be in various stages of development. Of course, just because a network expresses an interest in a pilot doesn't mean that a series will see the light of day, as was the case with last year's proposed "Wonder Woman" series.
A Sequel to 2009's LEGO Batman has been known since the summer, around the time LEGO and DC Comics (and Marvel) were revealing their plans for more super heroes in the toy line. Now a LEGO fan site says the title will be something like "LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes" .
That's Superman, Luthor and a tiny Joker in the background of the box shot, showing Batman in what appears to be the Michael Keaton-style all-black batsuit. Other reports have said Green Lantern and Wonder Woman will appeear in the game, due for release next year.
