Earlier this month, FIFTH HARMONY unleashed a live-action music video for their latest single, "That's My Girl," racking up nearly 23 million plays in under two weeks. Today, the song gets animated as Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) and DC Entertainment (DCE) have announced a partnership with the pop powerhouse to collaborate on the first-ever DC Super Hero Girls music video.  The colorful new clip for "That's My Girl" features Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, Poison Ivy and Katana, the animated DC Super Hero Girls, and can be viewed below...

September 17, 2016 has been declared to be the third-annual "Batman Day" by the folks at DC Comics - a 24-hour celebration of all-things Batman. One of the interesting things about the character is that it works in so many forms - from the colorful camp of The Caped Crusaders of the 1960s, to the ominous tones of Alan Moore's THE KILLING JOKE or Frank Miller's THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, there's many shades of grey and black. Zack Snyder's BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE introduced a new version of the character - one familiar, but still like nothing previously seen in live-action... a real brawler. We'd soon find out that Ben Affleck's Batman had faced-off against Jared Leto's Joker (seen in David Ayer's SUICIDE SQUAD), but as a hypothetical - what if The Joker had the upper hand? My friends at Entertainment Earth recently served-up their SDCC Exclusive Batman v. Superman: The Joker's Wild Batman 19" Big Figs Action Figure by JAKKS Pacific at San Diego Comic-Con International, but with a few left (one of which they sent to Rock Father HQ), we decided that teaming-up for a Batman Day Giveaway was the way to go! One lucky reader of THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine will score this fantastic figure (a $60 value)! Enter below...

It was March 28, 2015 when Adam West and Burt Ward first announced that an animated feature film would bring them back into their roles as Batman and Robin, as seen in the 1966 BATMAN TV series. Things had been pretty quiet since then, but out of nowhere came the announcement that BATMAN: RETURN OF THE CAPED CRUSADERS would be arriving on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on November 1, 2016, with the Digital HD version arriving early, October 11. If you're looking for a Batman film that you can actually share with your small children, this might be what you're looking for - at least until The LEGO Batman Movie hits screens next year. Take a peek at the full trailer and all the info below on this animated return to a much campier time...

"Fun and stylish - a comic book come to life" - that was how I described David Ayer's SUICIDE SQUAD last night, a one-liner delivered moments after leaving the theater from a Thursday night showing, responding to comments from Facebook friends who noticed my check-in. Contrary to what you might've heard from the increasingly humorless legion of online critics this past week, SUICIDE SQUAD is far from the dismal "mess" that some have chosen to label it - an entertaining film that marks the cinematic debut of many new characters into the DC Extended Universe, and a perfect bridge between Zack Snyder's recent BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE and next year's JUSTICE LEAGUE. Browsing my feeds on both Facebook and Twitter late last night, it appears I'm not alone in my thoughts. What we have here is another prime example of the growing audience vs. critic rift, and a reminder that film (as with any of the arts) is subjective - that you should never pass up the opportunity to experience something simply because of a bad review (yes, even if it comes from me), and that what's "entertaining" will vary widely among viewers. My take is that SUICIDE SQUAD is a film that feels like a comic book, but in a different way than anything that either DC or MARVEL has put on the big screen in the past.

Watch Now: First JUSTICE LEAGUE Trailer!

Okay, "officially" it's not a "trailer," but this "footage was prepared for the filmmakers as a special look for fans in attendance at Comic-Con 2016." As we know from year's past, it doesn't take long for horrible quality unauthorized footage to hit the web, and this year Warner Bros. is being proactive about it by sharing the first trailer footage from Zack Snyder's forthcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE with the masses, mere minutes after causing the infamous Hall H to erupt. I'm a lifelong "DC Kid," and I loved BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE (review here), but as we all know, many thought the film was too heavy and/or too dark/serious. From this footage and some previous set reports, JUSTICE LEAGUE appears to have a much lighter tone, and again - I love what I'm seeing. The beauty of these timeless characters is that they work well under different direction and different storytelling conditions, and I do dig seeing Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) lighten up a bit as he puts a team together... OCEAN'S 11-style, while set to THE WHITE STRIPES' "Icky Thump." Check this out!

Power. Grace. Wisdom. Wonder. We have waited far too long for a WONDER WOMAN movie, but next year that wait comes to an end. Just-unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con, the first trailer for Warner Bros.' WONDER WOMAN is stellar - it quite literally gave me goosebumps... twice. If you've seen BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, you may recall the groovy music that signaled Wonder Woman's official entry into the DC Extended Universe, and that theme is here. From director Patty Jenkins, WONDER WOMAN starring Gal Gadot, blazes into theaters on June 2, 2017. Take a look at the trailer below!
