The DC Daily Planet: First Looks!

My First Book of Girl Power Julie Merberg DC Comics Downtown Bookworks 2014 2

It’s the end of another week, caped crusaders, but not the end of my coffee for the day. Go ahead and check up on DC, while I get a refill, okay?

We already told you all about the ten new CONVERGENCE titles coming in April. Here’s an image from the SUPERMAN book, showcasing the Man of Steel and the President of Awesome,Superman and Lois his pregnant wife, Lois Lane. I would also offer a complimentary box of tissues, but I’ve used all mine up.

Speaking of first looks, we’ve also got one of Katie Cassidy’s Laurel Lance as the Black Canaryfinally. Personally, I loved Cassidy’s turn on Supernatural as the ass-kicking, wise-cracking, fry-loving snide demon Ruby, so I’m looking forward to seeing her take on this role. Laurel’s been a little adrift, in my opinion, so I think it’ll be great to give her a new angle.

Katie Cassidy Black CanaryPlus, who doesn’t love Black Canary?

Also, the costume is cool. I foresee a dearth of black faux leather in the months leading up to DragonCon. JoAnn’s better stock up.

DC has released the trailer for their new LEGO mashup: LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League. Cute!

Margot Robbie will play Harley Quinn in the Suicide Squad movie. Yawn. Don’t care about Harley Quinn (YOLO), don’t care about Margot Robbie. She is white and blonde and totally boring as a casting choice.

Enjoy your Fridays, crusaders! Don’t forget to weigh in with your thoughts in the comments!
