Seems like a good day for mobile gamers as two high-profile games, DC Legends and Asphalt Xtreme, make their debut on the Google Playstore today and for fans of Pokemon Go, those who are still playing the game, Niantic now plans to reward you for the loyalty. Or it’s just them trying to keep players coming back more often. Continue reading “Android Gaming : DC Legends hits the Playstore, Asphalt Xtreme gets off road too, Pokemon Go to bring daily reward”
Superheroes are so mainstream today than they’ve ever been. Each year consistently sees movies after movies and now we have just as many comic book based TV shows (and yet the fanboy in me misses the good old Smallville days ). The gaming industry is not that far behind either with several titles such as Injustice and a new spin on the Dark Knight by Telltale.
Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and more of the most popular superheroes are sharing the screen once again with the Joker, Harley Quinn, Doomsday and more this fall. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced the upcoming release a new mobile game starring superheroes and super villains at New York Comic Con on Thursday, Oct. 6. The game is set to launch on November 3.

AT&T has reached a deal to acquire Time Warner for more than $85 billion, a blockbuster deal that fuses a mobile giant with an entertainment conglomerate, carrying with it the potential to reshape the media landscape.
The two companies on Saturday jointly announced the deal, unanimously approved by both boards, that will see the mobile company pay $107.50 per share in a cash and stock transaction. The deal represents a marriage of Time Warner’s limitless movie and television empire with AT&T’s 315 million wireless subscribers.

Last night a few sites ran the image of Henry Cavill as Superman with the classic curl. They all claimed it was from Justice League.
Superman may not be the most popular DC character right now but Superman is still the most important character in the DC Universe and getting him right seems to be so hard for the writers. They say he is too powerful, he is unrelatable, it’s hard to find a real challenge for him. But ask the fans and they’ll tell you how Superman is relatable and how despite him being an alien, he is the most human DC Superhero there is. And that’s how you write Superman. That’s where he shines to a mature audience, not in all the cool things he can do but in his character.
It’s been another banner year for comic book movies. Aside from Suicide Squad, which has been out only a week, each movie has grossed over $500 million. That kind of box office success is no longer a surprise, but an expectation. Deadpool is arguably the best of the bunch, but only Captain America: Civil War has managed to receive critical acclaim and cross the hallowed $1 billion barrier.
In a (very strange) response to the recent goings-on with the DCEU, Warner Bros. is reportedly moving forward with a belated Man of Steel sequel. A new report claims that the project is now in “active development,” and will join DC’s crowded blockbuster schedule for the next few years.
Movie critics have a difficult job. Remaining objective and viewing a film through the target audience’s eyes is no easy task, because we all inherently have biases when it comes to matters of opinion. In the case of big-budget blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, critics by and large seem to have failed pretty miserably. The movie was panned by pros, earning it an abysmal 27% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. While their terrible reviews may very well have impacted audience sentiment, they did precious little to actually dissuade anyone from seeing the movie — it racked up nearly $873 million globally at the box office, making it the 46th highest grossing film in history.
For the first time since Smallville ended in 2011, there’s a new Superman on television…and he’s not afraid of flights and tights!
The CW has unveiled the first official photograph of former Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin as Superman alongside Supergirl herself, Melissa Benoist. And we have to say that it’s very cool to finally see the Last Son of Krypton with the Girl of Steel in live-action!
