The DC Extended Universe is growing by a massive amount in 2016, and what follows the March release of Zack Snyder's BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is the August release of David Ayer's SUICIDE SQUAD. The villain team-up might come as a surprise to casual fans familiar with The Joker, but not the rest of the 'Squad, but tonight's official trailer debut should do wonders in introducing the concept to the world at large. Quite simply, it rocks, and the fact that QUEEN's "Bohemian Rhapsody" serves as the soundtrack doesn't hurt. Probably the finest use since Wayne and Garth...

Trailer - BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE!

The Force is strong with JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! Just days after the debut of the first trailer for CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, and a week out from a full STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS special, last night brought forth the debut of a full-length trailer for BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE - a film not part of the Disney ABC family, but from rival Warner Bros. Kimmel is the go-to spot for trailer debuts right now, and this new look at BATMAN v SUPERMAN is setting the 'net a buzz this morning. Check it out below, your first on-screen look at Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) fighting alongside Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot)...

Back in 1965, the American Aerosol Company launched Crazy Foam to "make bathtime fun for kids and easy for parents." The concept was simple, with shaving cream-style soap packed into a can that featured artwork from a variety of licensed characters. DC Comics and MARVEL were in the mix, and there were others like Popeye, The Smurfs, and more. By the 90s, there were even editions based of characters from The Simpsons, and then the brand went on hiatus. I vaguely remembered these from the late 70s/early 80s, so when I was pitched some samples for a Crazy Foam rebirth, I jumped on it. Thing is, after having these in-hand, my parental instincts kicked in and made two things very clear - Crazy Foam is creepy, and I'm not comfortable letting my girls use it based on the ingredients and propellants contained within.

Sometimes you just have to wait for things, and even if the wait equals years, the payoff is pretty good. A prime example arrived today - the result of planning ahead, and keeping a t-shirt in a drawer for six years. Weird to think that slightly more than a half-decade ago, I was in the midst of a late-night diaper run to Walmart when I started browsing some clearance kids' clothes that had been squeezed-in near their Garden Center. There was one particular rack that caught my eye - t-shirts featuring comic book covers from the 1980s... the exact time that I became a comic book fan myself. Hanging on that rack was a single t-shirt in a size 6/7 that bore not only a favorite cover, but the exact cover of the first issue of John Byrne's THE MAN OF STEEL from 1986 - the very book that hooked me on DC Comics. For less than $2, I purchased said t-shirt, and have waited six years for today to arrive - the day that it finally fit Addie.
