Quantcast

Summer is a prime time to unplug and let the imagination run wild, and with that, I'm always big on dress-up play. Right now (while supplies last) my affiliate, BuyCostumes has a crazy deal on a GREEN LANTERN costume - perfect for your little member of DC Comics' GREEN LANTERN CORPS. Want a full uniform for under $7 Bucks??! Yep, I said it was a "crazy" deal, and right now you can score a  $60 costume for $6.50.

It's official - filming has begun in the Metro Detroit area on Warner Bros. Pictures' much-anticipated MAN OF STEEL follow-up, BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. Directed by Zack Snyder, BvS stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. More from the official announcement can be found below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

First-Look: Ben Affleck as BATMAN...

BATMAN VS SUPERMANAs first teased yesterday when Director Zack Synder promised to "pull the tarp," today comes not only a look at the new Batmobile for his upcoming MAN OF STEEL sequel (BATMAN Vs. SUPERMAN - until the title changes), but the first-look at Ben Affleck in the all-new Batsuit. Quite simply, I'm digging it. This is the closest thing we've ever seen to a true, comic book-style Batman that carries a lot of that DARK KNIGHT RETURNS vibe. Take a peek...

On October 14, 2014, Warner Bros. Games will release BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT (Pre-order: Amazon | GameStop), the finale to their Arkham Trilogy. While the game was just officially announced today and details are scarce, the Next Gen-only title will arrive for PC, XBOX One, and PLAYSTATION 4. I guess this means I finally need to get an XBOX One (I'm still on the XBOX 360), as this game looks fantastic. The Rocksteady crew have certainly taken some of that Christopher Nolan-influence and run with it, and their driveable BATMOBILE is one mean ride. See the trailer, "Father to Son," below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

I really need to get back into comics... not just reading them, but as a creator and writer. My personal foray into that realm was brief (as was the existence for the publisher I worked for), but the couple of books I did create have been made available on Amazon as Kindle Editions (they're FREE!) and oddly enough, they still hit the charts (DEATH WALKS THE STREETS #1 is currently number #13 in horror - tonight). I miss regular reads, and often times, catching up via Trade Paperback is the way to go (I still like to hold a real book), and tonight I spotted some upcoming releases that I'd like to highlight here on THE ROCK FATHER. Actually, I think we'll make this a regular feature.

If you've logged into Facebook or Twitter today, you probably know what today is. Yes, it's International STAR WARS Day (May the Fourth Be With You!), but being the first Saturday in May, it's also FREE COMIC BOOK DAY. Last year was the first year I'd blogged about FCBD here on The Rock Father, and some of you might recall that it was pretty disappointing. FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2013? The complete opposite - it was excellent. It also started a little bit early...
