Superman Donut wall

One huge benefit of reuniting Superman with his iconic red trunks is the amount of attention it creates, which is very useful for DC Comics as it embarks on a brand new era for the Man of Steel. Case in point, the promotion pairs red underwear featuring #thetrunksareback hashtag on the back as well as a wall of Voodoo Doughnuts in the shape of Superman’s shield at this year’s SXSW (see photos above and below).

Frank Miller's Sin City

Our time in Basin City might not be over just yet. It’s being reported that a TV series based on Frank Miller‘s comic Sin City is now being developed.

The TV series is being developed by The Weinstein Company and Dimension, based on a take from writer Glen Mazzara. Mazzara created TV series like Crash and the show based on The Omen, Damien. He’s also the former showrunner of The Walking Dead, and wrote and produced episodes of The Shield, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, Hawthorne, and more.

Marvel 1981 Calendar August

It’s the start of a new year, time for a new calendar!

And as it turns out, calendar years occasionally repeat. For instance, 2015’s days and dates line up exactly with those of 1981. So, cartoonist Mark Anderson took his copy of a Marvel Comics 20th Anniversary calendar from 1981 and lovingly scanned and posted the pages online for all to use!

The 1981 calendar features beloved Marvel characters like Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk, and others created by artists like Bill Sienkiewicz, Joe Sinnott, John Romita Jr., Frank Miller, George Perez, and more.

Sin City A Dame To Kill For Mickey Rourke as Marv

Welcome to another shiny new edition of The Digital Wire! Despite that exuberant fanfare, I am sad to announce that this week has been mighty slim in the realm of Blu-ray and DVD release news and the titles we have to report on won’t get much interest as they are all part of tired franchises, but one of the purposes of this feature is to give such titles the space they deserve. Besides, you may be interested in one or more of them.

Below you’ll find info on several future home video releases complete with technical specs, release dates, and links to pre-order at Amazon. We would greatly appreciate it if you use those links to order because a small percentage of each order helps keep this website running at max power. The cover art for certain titles has yet to be finalized.

SDCC 2014: Sin City: A Dame To Kill For panel

The anticipated sequel to Sin City, the highly stylized live-action cum comic book adaptation titled Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, made its debut at San Diego Comic-Con in famed Hall H on a beautiful Saturday afternoon and the audience got to see a clip from the film center on Mickey Rourke’s character Marv, as well as a teaser video of sorts with new footage.

Moderated by Geoff Boucher with a panel composed of Robert Rodriguez, who called the story one of the most original and groundbreaking graphic novels of all time, and creator/illustrator and writer of that graphic novel, Frank Miller, who was sporting wearing his trademark Fedora and admittedly, looking rather gaunt, but still waxed poetic about his craft and vision, a vision in which film noir meets surrealism, even on the printed page.

SDCC 2014: New Photo Of Ben Affleck As Batman From ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’

Batman vs Superman

In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of Batman and the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC Entertainment has created a montage wall at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con featuring pictures old and new of the Dark Knight.

On said wall there now exists a brand new one photo revealed specifically for this event. It’s a profile shot of Ben Affleck from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the newest incarnation of the classic cowl we all know and love. The matte black of the mask and the unshaven chin give this Caped Crusader a very grisly look, reminiscent of some of Frank Miller’s darker renderings. Looking a bit worn around the edges, I’m beginning to think Affleck might do well in his role. Time will tell. No doubt there will be more movie news as SDCC 2014 continues. But until then, check this new photo out here below.
