DC Comics Unveil A Snazzy New Logo…
In conjunction with its upcoming ‘Rebirth’ shake-up, DC have unleashed a brand new company logo. This shiny blue symbol replaces its previous ‘peel’ style logo that has only been in use for a mere four years. This new variant is the eleventh logo since the company first drew breath well over seventy five years ago, and has a satisfyingly retro look to it. The new logos debut appearance will be on the cover of Geoff Johns’ upcoming ‘DC Universe: Rebirth Special #1’ which will be available at all good comic book emporiums from May 25.
Harley Quinn Goes Solo…
Everyones favourite Mischievous Minx of Mayhem is apparently going to get a spin-off movie that will begin production after the Suicide Squad movie hits the big screen this August. Margot Robbie will be reprising her role as Harley alongside ‘other’ DC female characters, of course the classic ‘Gotham City Sirens’ comic series comes to mind, where our lovable rogue joined up with feisty female felons – Catwoman & Poison Ivy. Though the rumour mill has also put forward such names as – Batgirl, Huntress & Black Canary, so maybe it’ll end up being a big screen adaptation of the ‘Birds of Prey’ series, either way it’s exciting times ahead for both Ms Quinn and her legions of fans.
NBC Are Powerless To Resist DC Comedy…
NBC have commissioned a full series of DC Comics’ upcoming comedy show ‘Powerless’. The satirical Superhero show is set in an insurance company that deals with the fallout from the destruction wrought by heroes during their crime busting escapades. The series stars Vanessa Hudgens and Alan Tudyk, plus a large roster of DC characters both major and minor, beginning in the first episode with French Superheroine and former Justice League Europe member Crimson Fox.
