Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman and Shawn Levy interview to promote ‘Deadpool and Wolverine’ Variety

Given that they’re here to sell a raunchy, boundary-pushing sequel to the most profane superhero franchise in history, it’s not surprising that many of the jokes are NSFW. Take the moment when 47-year-old Reynolds, who stars in the film with Jackman, stands on a chair for a photo with his crotch hovering over writer-director Levy’s head..."

As impressive as some of the numbers reported are (for example Batman #50 from 2018 - 412,541 Copies Sold) these numbers don't compare to the millions of copies that Superman and other titles could move monthly in the prime peak years of of comic book popularity during the 1940s going into the 1950s.

"Creature Commando" characters to be put into TV and feature film projects

Story at Boundingintocomics

I take it this is an effort to boost the profile awareness of what are probably obscure characters from out of DC's old Weird War Tales books, though the mythologically-derived characters (Frankenstein) in the Commandos is already well known, of course, and all of this is because James Gunn has bigger plans for them later..

The new Marvel Uncle Scrooge from an alternative universe?

Story at Comicbook

Duckburg's resident capitalist has plundered the planet and hoarded every trinket and treasure from Dismal Downs to the gold mines of Dawson City, but there's a hole that not even three-and-a-half cubic acres of cold, hard cash can fill. Inside his massive money bin is a relic he took from the sorceress Magica De Spell: the Mirror of Worlds, which opens a portal to another version of Uncle Scrooge with his own precious Number One Dime. "Why settle for being the richest duck in the world," he says, yanking it from alt-Scrooge's clutches, "when I could be the richest duck on ALL the worlds!!!" As it turns out, this Uncle Scrooge is from an alternate universe that branches off from the money-diving duck's debut appearance in 1947's "Donald Duck's Christmas on Bear Mountain."

The Brave and the Bold movie Cinemablend

DC fans are starving… despite the fact that they are getting a steady stream of quality entertainment, and have for years..."

Huh?

One of the announced projects that’s getting an inordinate amount of attention is The Brave and the Bold, a Batman project in the DCU that will explore (for the first time in live action) Bruce Wayne’s relationship with his son, Damian Wayne. Damian’s a maniacal little assassin, having been raised by the League of Shadows, so his dynamic with Batman will be interesting. Since the earliest days, The Flash director Andy Muschietti has been attached to The Brave and the Bold..."

Hopefully, they can dig up the spirit of the old DC Brave and the Bold which was a unique team-up book with a good number of well done stories. Damian wasn't in the picture for those old issues so having that be the "team-up" aspect of this film is not necessarily alarming but it doesn't exactly fit in with what worked in the book in the past. And having any connection to the bloated mess of The Flash (which had good parts to it, but also was marred with the heavy hand of post-production meddling) isn't an affirming detail.

In February.... the Ohio Department of Development awarded an $11 million motion tax credit to a project called "Genesis." Cleveland.com and The Plain Dealer later confirmed that "Genesis" was the codename for DC’s Superman reboot...."

What is significant about the link between Cleveland and Superman?

First of all, Superman's creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, were both from Cleveland and they created Superman in Cleveland in 1933. They were high school students at Glenville High School when they originated the character.

The Siegel and Shuster Society, along with various landmarks and events, celebrates the creators and their famous superhero in Cleveland.
