Were it not for some major departures from the source material, “Justice League: Doom” could have been the best entry in Warner Bros. Animation’s DC Comics library. Even with the changes, it’s definitely in the upper echelon of the consistently quality animated films of the DC Universe. More

Batman, Flash, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox
Here’s the synopsis from DC Comics’ The Source:
In the movie, when time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for the Flash and his family, the event’s temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman and government agent Cyborg to restore the continuity of Flash’s original timeline.
And here’s another look at Flash and the Flashpoint universe Batman

Here’s another character shot of the two main characters from “Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.”
Flashpoint was a very divisive story for comic fans, but in essence it was an excellent “What If?” type tale with some very intriguing takes on DC characters. It was DC’s answer to the popular X-Men saga “Age of Apocalypse,” but this was one of those rare cases where I felt the big crossover event was too short and just hinted at the possibilities. More

Superman’s “Man of Steel” won’t be stuck in Batman’s shadow.
Here’s some great news for those of you all you were worried that “Man of Steel” was going to feature a brooding, depressing take on Superman a la the very successful Batman trilogy directed by Christopher Nolan.
It would be hard to knock the strategy as Nolan’s Batman saga have been the lone comic book related bright spot for Warner Bros. who’ve seen other DC Comics films “Superman Returns” and “Green Lantern” fail to significantly connect with audiences. That provided Warner Bros. with enough incentive to have Nolan serve as a producer for “Man of Steel,” but fortunately the filmmakers understand that Superman and Batman need to be approached very differently on the big screen.

NECA was among the dozens of companies showcasing more of their 2013 product at the 2013 Toy Fair held in New York and they’ve got some very fun offerings in store for pop-culture fans.
That scene straight from “Aliens” is BEGGING for Vasquez, Ripley, Gorman and Newt figures to complete it. More
