DC Comics recently released a comic about Furiosa by an all-male creative team, and boy does it get everything wrong.
After Ben Affleck denied that he was ever officially asked by Warner Bros. to direct the Justice League movie
, a new name has been tossed into the internet rumor mill: Wachowski, as in Andy and Lana Wachowski of The Matrix
(and Cloud Atlas
, V For Vendetta
, and Bound
). The siblings are now apparently on the WB's short list to direct the DC Comics ensemble answer to Marvel's The Avengers
. It's pure, unadulterated rumor right now, but it's a cool one, for sure. And Hugo Weaving would probably be on board for that, which is pretty boss. (via The AV Club

Last year at New York Comic Con, the creators of Adult Swim's Robot Chicken
teased their upcoming DC Comics special, which is finally arriving on Sunday, September 9 at midnight. They showed a bunch of past clips from the show that featured DC characters, which was all fine and good, but like every other faithful viewer of Robot Chicken
, it was stuff we'd seen already. Tons of times, if we are nightly Adult Swim viewers. Well, the preview video at IGN
is all new footage, and it looks like some of the best stuff the show has done to date. I really can't remember the last time a preview
video made me so happy. So, they've done Star Wars
and DC, which means I will be putting Star Trek
and Marvel episodes on my wish list. Have at it, genies! (via Seth Green on Twitter

Last night at Comic Con, during a DC Comics panel that focused on its Vertigo imprint, it was casually mentioned that Neil Gaiman would debut a prequel to his Sandman series in November 2013. In a prerecorded message, he provided the following quote:
"When I finished writing The Sandman, there was one tale still untold. The story of what had happened to Morpheus to allow him to be so easily captured in The Sandman #1, and why he was returned from far away, exhausted beyond imagining, and dressed for war."
