DC Super Hero Girls Announced

Posted by The Daily Zombies

DC Comics announced a girls-friendly initiative in collaboration with Mattel, Random House, Warner Bros. Animation, and Lego: Brace yourself for DC Super Hero Girls! 


Here at The Daily Zombies, we are certainly not known for being a prominent feminist or anything alike though you can easily notice us standing up against outright sexist ideologies. So why are we so excited that DC Comics announced a girls-friendly initiative in collaboration with Mattel, Random House, and Lego. Well, for starters, because of a personal experience. 

I had a  five-year-old niece who embraced all the superhero geek knowledge that I have imparted her and absolutely loved the Teen Titans cartoons and Batman and Superman and stuff. But when it come to the numero uno superheroine Wonder Woman, which she was also a fan of (mainly fascinated by the Invisible Jet), she told me that she don't want to be Wonder Woman because she wears panties for her superhero costume. An incredibly valid point from the gullible though thoroughly sharp observations of a five-year-old.

So here we are, in absolute peace and anticipation for the DC Super Hero Girls. 

DC Comics' records for a female-friendly front have been spotty at best. But with the live-action adaptation of Wonder Woman set to be directed by a female director (last we checked, Patty Jenkins is on it), DC is making significant improvements in their efforts for a more balanced measure in reaching out to their fans. With the new initiative, DC will be collaborating with Mattel, Random House, Warner Bros. Animation, and Lego, which means that we will get to see the reimagination of female superheroes and villains in more forms than one, from toy merchandise, animated direct-to-videos films, Lego figures, and kid-friendly novels.

Check out details of the initiative via the official press release along with the official art image for the initiative right below:

A New Super Hero Universe Designed Just For Girls, Slated For Fall 2015


Mattel to Launch Company’s First Action Figures for Girls
Unprecedented Initiative to Include Digital Content, TV Specials, Made-For-Videos, 
Publishing, Toys, Apparel and Other Products

Random House Children’s Books to be Master Publishing Partner
The LEGO Group to be Exclusive Construction Partner


Beginning in Fall 2015, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Mattel join forces to launch DC Super Hero Girls, an exciting new universe of Super Heroic storytelling that helps build character and confidence, and empowers girls to discover their true potential.  Featuring DC Comics’ most powerful and diverse line-up of female characters as relatable teens, DC Super Hero Girls will play out across multiple entertainment content platforms and product categories to create an immersive world.

Developed for girls aged 6-12, DC Super Hero Girls centers on the female Super Heroes and Super-Villains of the DC Comics universe during their formative years—prior to discovering their full super power potential. Featuring a completely new artistic style and aesthetic, DC Comics’ icons such as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumble Bee, Poison Ivy, Katana and many more make their unprecedented teenaged introduction. Each character has her own storyline that explores what teen life is like as a Super Hero, including discovering her unique abilities, nurturing her remarkable powers and mastering the fundamentals of being a hero.  
 
“DC Entertainment is home to the most iconic and well-known Super Heroes including Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl,” said Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment. “DC Super Hero Girls represents the embodiment of our long-term strategy to harness the power of our diverse female characters.  I am so pleased that we are able to offer relatable and strong role models in a unique way, just for girls.”
 
The initial launch of DC Super Hero Girls in Fall 2015 will include an immersive digital experience, original digital content and digital publishing—providing opportunities for girls to interact with characters, learn about the storylines, and engage in customizable play.  TV specials, made-for-videos, toys, apparel, books and other product categories will begin to rollout in 2016.  

“Developing a Super Hero franchise exclusively for girls that includes all of the key components of a comprehensive entertainment experience—from content to consumer products—is something we are excited to be doing in conjunction with our great partners,” said Brad Globe, President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products.   “It’s really an honor to be part of this cultural moment and to be delivering a concept so rooted in a relatable and empowered theme that the characters of DC Comics are uniquely able to present.”

As master toy licensee, Mattel is collaborating with DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Bros. Consumer Products on DC Super Hero Girls’ narrative creation, interactive digital activations and ultimately a toy line launching in 2016.  Mattel category-leading firsts include a line of characters for the action figure category, an area of the industry that has been primarily developed with boys in mind, and fashion dolls featuring strong, athletic bodies that stand on their own in heroic poses. 

“Partnering with the best and being the best partner is of paramount importance,” said Richard Dickson, President, Chief Operating Officer, Mattel.  “Together with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, the DC Super Hero Girls franchise will further expand our already powerful girls portfolio. We know Super Hero is a culturally relevant theme and the DC Super Hero Girls franchise will engage and inspire girls, providing cues to explore heroic acts through play and into real life.”
The Random House Books for Young Readers imprint of Random House Children’s Books has been appointed the master publishing partner for the franchise and will be creating a portfolio of books that will bring the DC Super Hero Girls world to life, beginning in Spring 2016.  Random House’s publishing program will be complemented by a series of original graphic novels from DC Entertainment.  The LEGO Group will also be key to building the DC Super Hero Girls franchise, leveraging their experience and success engaging girls in creative construction play to bolster this universe through an array of LEGO® building sets designed to inspire girls' imaginations.  Additionally, consumer products partners around the world will be engaged in creating a merchandise line dedicated to DC Super Hero Girls across all key categories.  

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - First Trailer

"Tell me, do you bleed?" 

"You will."

It's a Bird/Bat... It's a (Bat)Plane... It's the Dark Knight taking on the Man of Steel in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! Warner Bros. Pictures boldly follow up on Disney's unveiling of the second teaser trailer of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and give us our first real look of the much-anticipated film with the first teaser trailer. 


In our well-documented coverage of Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: We have had our First Look at Ben Affleck's Batman and his trusty Batmobile as well as Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman last year,  the unveiling of Jason Momoa's Aquaman early this year, just last month, we got a good look at Jesse Eisenberg's take on Lex Luthor. That's one hell of a lot of coverage but there is still one big bloody problem: We haven't even seen one actual glimpse of the film despite footage of it being unveiled at the last San Diego Comic-Con. 

With Disney astounding the world with the release of the second teaser trailer of Star Wars: The Force Awakens just yesterday and Avengers: Age of Ultron hitting the theaters real soon, we were genuinely surprised that Warner Bros. Pictures still went ahead with the IMAX event of launching the first teaser trailer debut of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next Monday (20th April 2015), And we are truly awe-struck when Warner Bros. Pictures actually decided to release the trailer one day after The Force Awakens, in response to the leak of an low-resolution version. 


So here we are as we brace ourselves for our first ever actual look at the film featuring two of the genuine icons of comic industry. With no further ado, find out exactly how well-liked (or hated) Henry Cavill's Superman is in the wake of the cataclysmic events of Man of Steel, and how Ben Affleck's Batman just want ask one bloody question.




 . And here comes our post-trailer analysis, along with screenshots of the trailer!

Okay, just to get this going, we have to address one thing. Yes, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is better than this, in many ways, some nostalgic and some for its great pace. But the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still awesome in many, many ways. 

Check out the image right below (click on it to view in hi-res).

Metropolis is pretty much well in its pace to rebuilt itself.

The voiceovers set up is pretty well-utilised here.We can certainly hear Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor's voice in there as the main narration of demonising the Man of Steel and many are chipping in to say that they hear Neil deGrasse Tyson, Charlie Rose, and Holly Hunter, who is apparently playing some government bigwigs.  Basically a party to trash Superman.

Superman, at the Day of the Dead?

A clever reveal of what many thought of Superman at this stage.



Is Superman getting himself a cult of followers already?


Based on the insignia at the shoulder, this is pretty creepy as it looks.

Heavy lifting.

Roscosmos on the rocket may be an indicator of the rumor of KGBeast's involvement.



And here's our first look at the full-fledged Bruce Wayne...

... looking longingly at his costume (with nose). All while Jeremy Irons provided an amazing voiceover as Alfred remarking how this is how it starts, with the fever, the rage, the feeling of powerlessness, that turns good men cruel. 


Batman at the slums with Batmobile.


Drone attacks...

And Batmobile in action...

The Dark Knight emerging from the ruins and looking none the happier.



And this got me excited... a recreation of one of my favorite shots of Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins with Batman on top of a building looking over the cityscapes... Well, just because he is the Goddamn Batman.

And now we are at our final shot. The showdown between the World's Finest.

Indeed, the heavily armoured Batman is going to kick some Kryptonian's ass.



Batman asks and answers his own bloody question: "Tell me, do you bleed?" 

"You will."


Roll the title screen.





A follow-up to Snyder's 2013 film Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice features returning stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane reprising their roles in the first film, while including Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, as well as Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, and Tao Okamoto. The film is set to release in theaters on 25th March 2016.

So without any further ado, brace yourself for an epic trailer ending with one hell of an epic moment potentially capable of bringing any self-respecting Star Wars fans.




Done trembling to your knees in absolute geek-asigm? Han Solo and Chewbacca, together again after three freaking decades? All-absorbing epic moments apart, the new teaser trailer of the film is truly an awesome display of how teaser trailers should be make of. 

Playing heavily to our collective nostalgia, the teaser trailer has a great balance of impressive imagery (the twisted Vader mask for example) and ominous voiceovers (thanks to Mark Hamill recapping his earlier speech with a twist), we are informed that we are in for one hell of an intergalactic ride with this one. Check out our full analysis with screenshots right below. 

First up, we are on the same desert planet shown in the first teaser trailer and it has been confirmed that this is not Tatooine but Jakku. Yes, we also have a crashed X-Wing and Star Destroyer on site as well.


Vader's mask has been recovered from the funeral?


Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron enjoying an interesting ride of the X-Wing formation.

Kylo Ren strikes...


The chrome Stormtrooper.

And we have a team formed as Daisy Ridley's Rey stretched her hand out to John Boyega's Finn, an actual Stormtrooper.


Millenium Falcon in action.

More intrigue.




Chewie back in action with Han Solo!
