Infinite Crisis has a finite crisis, closing in August

Late have we known you, DC's Infinite Crisis MOBA, which turns out isn't anywhere near "infinite" at all.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie reboot in the works

A new feature film reboot of the film "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" has been tipped with Fox entering development this week.

Earlier this week Zack Snyder confirmed that the Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer would be launching soon, but someone else trumped his claim and leaked the trailer even sooner. It had hard-coded foreign language subtitles and was in exceptionally poor quality, and Warner Bros. moved to get the video pulled down quickly. As with all things on the Internet, though, a handful of copies would appear every time a copy was pulled, and so the studio did what many before it have elected to do: officially released the trailer sooner than it had originally planned.
