Disney and Warner Bros are currently embroiled in a major feud regarding the super hero movies they produce, based on characters from the rival comic book companies they own; Marvel and DC. However, the competition between the two studios goes back to the 1930s; which was long before the WB ever purchased DC and before Marvel Comics even existed. Cinelinx looks at the first rivalry between these two big movie studios, which pre-dates super heroes. It involved a mouse and a rabbit.
We all know Ben Affleck is the new Batman and it will start in Batman Vs Superman, but what comes after? There are rumors of cameo appearances, but he may be starring in three stand alone Batman films! Check it out after the jump.

Let’s Talk WB and DC Comics
It’s worth noting that while WB may seem to be pulling a Marvel, they really are not entirely. I think there will be cross promotion between titles, but each movie will stand on it’s own. So you won’t see them fighting something that turns into a Justice League possibility, but there is a twist here. With Superman (Man of Steel) we got a lot of Easter Eggs to other heroes, which proves that the universe is already shared. This is what DC could be doing to make their universe “special” just like Marvel having end of credits scenes to set up a big story.
Warner Bros. has finally given movies to their slate of announced Superhero release dates and announced several new DC Comics films leading all the way to 2020, including Justice League 1 and 2, Wonder Woman, plus confirming actors for Aquaman and The Flash. Come inside to check out all the news!
About a week before their panel at this year's Comic Con, WB has released brand new posters for The Hobbit and Pacific Rim. Check them both out below.
In preparation of the film's release two weeks from now, WB has released a trio of new posters for The Dark Knight Rises—two for Bane, and one for The Caped Crusader himself.
As pretty much every comic book fans knows by now, DC is currently undergoing a massive reboot of all their titles. What this means is every single issue is going back to number one, much like how movies are constantly telling origin stories for popular superheroes. While some fans (myself included) are finding this super awesome a lot of the fans hate the entire idea. Perhaps this can be tied to the idea movies or other mediums comic books have grown to be adapted to? Lets take a look at what has been happening over the years and why you should or shouldn’t be too worried.
There is something extremely huge happening in the comic book world. DC Comics, one of the largest and most well known comic book companies, is revamping its entire line up of comics. What this means is 52 (The New 52 as it’s being called) of DC Comics series’ will all be back at issue number one. While I am personally excited for this reboot and will be heading out at midnight to pick up tons of the new issues, I can’t help but think where else this will lead. How will this affect other portions of the industry DC/WB are a part of? Such as movies, television, books, and so on. Will they all have to be revamped to meet these new “standards” or will they remain untouched?
We all know an Avengers movie is coming out rather soon, next year actually. With that in mind plenty of Marvel fans are excited. Hell even I’m excited and I’m about as DC fanboy as it gets! However there are certain circumstances that are making me second guess the idea of pushing towards a grand finale before the show is even done. The Avengers are used entirely different as a comic book seres. They are the symbol of great new heroes and the first step used to lead into any major Marvel Comics event. However the film is simply coming out due to fan receptions and not because business calls for it, so lets look at the possibilities of its success. Or perhaps its possible failure.
