TLDR: Joss Whedon, obviously the person whose resume most matches the position, will be taking over from Zack Snyder as director of Justice League. Snyder feels the need to spend more time with family in the wake of the suicide of his 20-year-old daughter. DC Entertainment seems a bit nervous in its declaration that the remaining directing is "minimal," but it's probably true that the finished result will feel much more like Snyder than Whedon. (Snyder's wife Deborah, a producer on the project, is likewise taking time off.)

If Snyder were departing for other reasons, I'd be cracking cheap jokes at him and a filmmaking approach that I think could charitably be described as "controversial." As it is, I find my heart going out to him. His vision of what makes a good movie will never be mine, but I have no doubt whatsoever that he deeply loves making movies, and I respect the hell out of him for walking away from his magnum opus for the few things in life that are more important.

A new Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite trailer, showing off the villain: Ultron Sigma, the fusion of Marvel's Ultron and Mega Man X's Sigma. He has a lightsabre.

Also a bunch of returning characters, including Strider Hiryu, Thor, Hawkeye and Chris Redfield.

Here's hoping for some X-Men characters.

"Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment today announced that executive producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are teaming up for the all-new live-action drama series Titans, which will debut in 2018. Additionally, Warner Bros. Animation’s Young Justice: Outsiders the highly anticipated third season of the popular Young Justice series, is also ramping up for its first mission next year."

Young Justice: Outsiders
"In Young Justice: Outsiders, the teenage Super Heroes of the DC Universe come of age in an animated world of super-powers, Super-Villains and super secrets. In the highly anticipated new season, the team faces its greatest challenge yet as it takes on meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy."

It will be paired with the new live-action Titans series!

"Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. Titans is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.

Titans will be written by Akiva Goldsman (Star Trek: Discovery, Underground), Geoff Johns (President & Chief Creative Officer, DC Entertainment; The Flash, Arrow) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl). Goldsman, Johns, Berlanti and Sarah Schechter (Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl) are executive producers of the series from Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television."

Well, this is unexpected, to say the least!

In the week that Buffy has celebrated it's 20th anniversary this news has just come out out.

From Variety

Whedon is nearing a deal to write, direct, and produce an untitled Batgirl pic for Warner Bros. as part of its DC Extended Universe.

And on Twitter

I may have my issues with the man, but this is big news, and a very positive sign for Batgirl I think. And I suspect that, given his tone with the MCU, we might see something a little more upbeat and heroic from the DCEU.... thank heavens!

but it's not as ethically dubious as it sounds...

In the MU, Riri Wiliams, aka Ironheart, is a student at MIT, and every year MIT releases a student-made trailer promoting “Pi Day” (The 14th of March, which in America's date shorthand is 3-14), when they announce which new students have been accepted for the following year.

Entertainment Weekly confirm that the director of the hugely enjoyable LEGO Batman movie Chris McKay is being tipped to produce a live action Nightwing movie!!

He's more of an animation director so far, his track record including Robot Chicken, Moral Orel and Titan Maximum but based on LEGO Batman you can't deny he's prepared to have some FUN with the concept of costumed superheroes (which the DCCU is so sadly lacking, thought their TV shows seem to have gotten the hint).

Bill Dubuque (The Accountant) is set to write the script.

And as a bit of a teaser... perhaps! ;) )

It has to be said that this is a golden time for comic book adaptations into other media. Aside from the long established trend of video games, we have more movies, live action and animated series than would have seemed even plausible a few years ago.

And the range is impressive; we have Justice League Action for the kids (and the young at heart), Riverdale for those wanting a darker teen soap/drama take on Archie, Legion for the arty crowd (jk), CW is seemingly fuelled by DC shows like Supergirl, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, and Agents of SHIELD is still powering on. In the cinema we have everything from Snowpiercer to The LEGO Batman Movie!

It will never be a primary focus on scans_daily (the clue being in the name of course), and we do have the NS: multimedia tag, but it's not used overly much, so we thought it might be interesting to create a weekly post where you can discuss or dissect any shows you have enjoyed, are anticipating or want to recommend.

And don't feel limited to English language materials; Asterix movies, manga adaption, all are fair game. The more variety the better!

This will be a test run for four Sundays, if it proved popular we'll keep it going, if not we'll let it fade away.

Your input would be appreciated so, if you're interested in this as an idea, go for it!

Marvel Entertainment is teaming up with Square Enix for a multi-year, multi-game partnership, starting with The Avengers project!

I'm cautiously optimistic. Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider was awesome, so they clearly know how to make good games.

The LEGO Batman Movie is only a couple of weeks away, and so a couple of the newer trailers seems apt

And since this is me, a couple of them focus on their take on the Boy Wonder.

Rrrriiiiiiip!! )

So I was going to do a Batgirl retrospective or something to as a framing device, but screw it, it's New Year's, I'm lazy, and espanolbot is probably going to get to that that sooner or later. Anyways, I made this about a month back, spent many precious hours I could've used studying for finals, and when all's said and done... I regret nothing.

As first posts of 2017 go, I could do worse.
