Batman v Superman trailer, Suicide Squad first look debuts at SDCC.

This year Marvel passed on a presentation in the big room, so it’s WB/DC Entertainment’s turn in Hall H to wow the folks at San Diego Comic Con, and they didn’t hold anything back. The room was filled with anxious fans, whose appetite was whetted with looks at a couple of non-DC related projects first, The Man from U.N.C.L.E (starring Superman, himself, Henry Cavill as Napoleon Solo and Armie Hammer as Illya Kuryakin).  The presentation kicked off with a taped introduction by the always colorful and highly redacted director Guy Ritchie.

Exile’s Read of the Week – 12/30/09

Blackest Night #6 Story: Geoff Johns Art: Ivan Reis, Oclair Albert & Joe Prado Cover: Ivan Reis, Oclair Albert & Joe Prado Publisher: DC If it’s the only book that I buy this week, is it really the Read of the Week?
