According to Director Zack Snyder, the "big rule" he and his team on BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE "broke" was putting Gotham City and Metropolis next to each other. "They're sister cities - it's like Oakland vs. San Francisco," he states. This new dynamic was on display in new footage unveiled as part of an all-new trailer at Comic-Con International by Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Comics, bringing out an appearance by the cast of the film, which hits theaters on March 25, 2016. Check it out below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine!

Every time I write a news item like this, I always feel just a tiny bit bummed that I usually don't have the time to consume and enjoy all of the pop culture I find myself writing about - there's just too much of it! A prime example I hope to read comes this November when IDW Publishing and DC Comics unleash their latest crossover - BATMAN and the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES. Now, the idea of the the two existing in the same universe isn't entirely far-fetched, but any potential continuity problems are taken care of by the plot itself, a synopsis for which has just-arrived...

Next year, The CW is getting even more heroic with DC's LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, a new series about a team of time-traveling heroes and villains set in the same world as THE FLASH and ARROW. Now I feel like I have some real catching up to do on those shows ("time" has been a personal enemy to my own viewing) as LEGENDS will bring forth THE ATOM (Former SUPERMAN Brandon Routh), FIRESTORM (Victor Garber), WHITE CANARY (Caity Lotz), HAWKGIRL (Ciara Renee), RIP HUNTER (Arthur Darvill), CAPTAIN COLD (Wentworth Miller) and HEATWAVE (Dominic Purcell). Check out a First-look trailer below...

SUPERGIRLThere's been a lot of buzz about SUPERGIRL of late, and today comes the first-look at six minutes from the new series based on the stories from DC Comics. Airing this Fall on CBS, SUPERGIRL stars Melissa Benoist as the title character - Kara Zor-El, the 24-year-old Kryptonian cousin of Kal-El... aka SUPERMAN. I'm totally digging this, and if I could set the DVR now, I would. Check out the first look preview below.

It's a pretty strange time for movie fans - particularly fans of comic-based films. The past few weeks have seen an extraordinary amount of teasers and reveals from things here (AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON scored the second-biggest U.S. debut ever this weekend) and on the way (BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, FANTASTIC FOUR, ANT-MAN, etc.). After revealing Jared Leto as The Joker  from the currently-lensing SUICIDE SQUAD via twitter last week, filmmaker David Ayer was back with more tweets today, first dropping a look at a nearly-complete cast photo, and then a solo shot of Will Smith masked and ready to rock as Deadshot from the DC Comics-based project. Check these out...

Today is the first Saturday in May, and if you're into the "heroic" side of life, then you probably already know what that means: FREE COMIC BOOK DAY. The annual FCBD is a celebration of the world of comic books - a way of uniting all generations of readers and supporting local small businesses all in one colorful swoop. We missed last year's FCBD due to a scheduling conflict, but after writing about our experiences in 2013 and 2012, we're back in the swing of things for 2015. While I'd intended this to be my first year taking both girls, that plan changed due to "parenting" having to step-in. 5½-year-old Addie, who was planning to be Wonder Woman today, decided to make an angry and powerful kick that landed intentionally on Batgirl (2½-year-old Finley) this morning, thus revoking her privilege to accompany us to FCBD. I think I might've been more disappointed than she was, but we don't reward a villainous turn, so Finn and I were on our way to Jay's Comics in Third Lake, Illinois...
