Cyborg’s personality is getting a reboot in Justice League reshoots

Cyborg’s tone and personality is getting a reboot in the Justice League reshoots A recent interview with Cyborg’s father, played by Joe Morton, suggests that the reshoots for the character will change his personality. While there’s been much speculation as to what is the purpose of the reshoots and how much control Joss Whedon will have. Probably the biggest indication of this is this report. It seems like he’s got more control than you thought….

REVIEW: Justice League #20 – The League Causes a Disastrous Effect

REVIEW: Justice League #20 – The League Causes a Disastrous Effect

Time paradox stories are, if well-constructed, fun in a puzzle-box kind of way. Bryan Hitch‘s Justice League #20 attempts to take on the fun and mind-bending aspects of this science-fiction staple, and though this opening instalment of the “Endless” arc does at time suffer from clunky story progression, ultimately the issue winds up being an intriguing stab at this kind story with a lot of promise. The issue revolves around the Flash experiencing apocalyptic temporal…

REVIEW: Justice League vs Suicide Squad #2 – Slugfest

REVIEW: Justice League vs Suicide Squad #2 – Slugfest

Justice League vs Suicide Squad #2 deserves some credit for actually delivering on the title concept as early in the miniseries as it does. There are some other events over at other publishers that might draw out a full-bore confrontation for three to five issues (I’m looking at you, Bendis, don’t try to avoid me). Writer Joshua Williamson and penciler Tony S. Daniel are to be congratulated in delivering an action-packed issue that sees these…

REVIEW: Justice League #5 gives a good old fashioned climax

REVIEW: Justice League #5 gives a good old fashioned climax

I’ll start this review by saying this: I suck at starting at #1s.  Seriously, I do.  Last week I reviewed Wonder Woman #6 after not reading anything else.  This week, I jumped into Justice League #5 in much the same way. #1s are great, but I’m really bad at reading them.  I get lazy, don’t pick up issue #2, etc.  Some stories, too, start slow and I bore easily (shoutout to ADHD brain, ugh).  So I jump in…

DISCOURSE DISH: Geoff Johns Comments on Justice League ‘Tone’

DISCOURSE DISH: Geoff Johns Comments on Justice League ‘Tone’

This past Thursday, Geoff Johns made some comments to the Wall Street Journal about Justice League.  These comments focused primarily on comics-accuracy and the intended tone of the upcoming film.
