"It came out of the raft of superhero movies and all the origin stories they tell. It struck me that they all had the same setup: ‘in an ordinary world one person becomes extraordinary.’ So the natural thing to do is to twist that: ‘in an extraordinary world, one person is ordinary.’ A plague gives everybody on the planet very disparate super powers, all apart from one guy. He’s the most ordinary man alive, and he was very ordinary in the first place. From there it’s a story about finding something extraordinary inside yourself."

Entertainment Weekly confirm that the director of the hugely enjoyable LEGO Batman movie Chris McKay is being tipped to produce a live action Nightwing movie!!

He's more of an animation director so far, his track record including Robot Chicken, Moral Orel and Titan Maximum but based on LEGO Batman you can't deny he's prepared to have some FUN with the concept of costumed superheroes (which the DCCU is so sadly lacking, thought their TV shows seem to have gotten the hint).

Bill Dubuque (The Accountant) is set to write the script.

And as a bit of a teaser... perhaps! ;) )

"I have a really frustrating habit of having to read basically everything. I'm not one of these guys who can come on and take over a book and just read the previous arc or read the first issue. I need to feel very familiar with everything that's gone before. So if you're taking over for characters that have 30-plus year histories, you have a lot of homework. But the bottom-line is, if you do that, you start to see the sort of recurring themes and motifs of a character." -- Nick Spencer

Revolutionaries #1

AARON LONG: Revolution merged the Hasbro properties into a shared universe, with Revolutionaries now spinning out of the event. What will readers be seeing in this series?

JOHN BARBER: Lots of fast-paced action and big world-building. The Revolutionaries team is made up of Mayday (who’s a G.I. Joe agent), Kup and Blackrock (who are Transformers), and Action Man (who’s English). So they’re already kinda all over the place to start with, but right off the bat they have to team up with Rom and the Micronauts to fight the Oktober Guard and the new Storm Shadow. Nothing’s off the table!

So we’ll be seeing big crossovers between characters, plus we’ll be going all over the world. If you’re a fan of the Hasbro characters—from the comics or the toys or the cartoons—there will be little nods, or returns to places and ideas from all over. Remember when Cobra had a base on the moon? We do.

"When I was brought onto this Elektra book, the biggest mandate I had was she can’t be in New York. She is running from the city and people in that city, so I thought, well, if a super rich assassin is trying to hide in plain sight, do it in the biggest and brightest city she can find. And since Vegas has not been thoroughly explored, especially by Elektra, it seemed the perfect new place for her to go. All those bright lights cast a lot of shadows, and that’s exactly where Elektra operates."

G.I. Joe #1

"From here on out, GI Joe has a new, global mandate. In this new world, where the Earth is beset on all sides by magical shapeshifters, by giant robots from space, by tiny people from another dimension, by Space Knights…its the Joes who are the champions and defenders of humanity and Earth as a whole. That means that we’ll be moving away from a team that exists to protect America’s interests, and toward one that defends and safeguards the Earth as a whole. And since they’ll be doing so in a world filled with such weird stuff… things are going start feeling less Sgt. Rock and more Challengers of the Unknown.

We’re bringing back the lasers, we’re putting a giant robot on the team, and we’re leaning fully into what have always been Giannis and my favorite parts of the series: Those weird science fiction elements. Most importantly though, its the tone and approach of the series that’s going to feel new, but also familiar to anyone who grew up with the Sunbow cartoons. This new GI Joe is, above all else, aspirational. These aren’t grimdark characters confronted with the grisly reality of war and combat — that’s so very far removed from what people want from the franchise. They are passionate, talented, excited young people, whose actions are rooted in a heartfelt desire to make the world a better place."
