IT'S GREEN ARROW VS. ... PIANO MAN?11/22/17 @ 9:05 pm EST
Vampirella gains a new writer this July with Brandon Jerwa! In Brandon's first issue, #21, needs something else here as after here the "after" should start the new sentence. After the startling events of last issue, Vampirella's ready to put everything on the line in an attempt to save one soul and destroy another. Heroes and villains alike are playing toward their own endgame, and the cards are turning with a deadly quickness. We're not kidding when we say that BIG changes are coming, and it all starts here with Part 1 of INQUISITION! Be sure to pick up Vampirella at this great jumping-on point with issue #21!
"I've been a fan of Eric Trautmann's Vampirella since the first issue, and given our ongoing collaboration, this might be one of the easiest handoffs in the history of comics," says writer Brandon Jerwa. "Will my Vampirella book be different? Absolutely. Will I be undoing what has come before? No way. Dynamite has a great franchise here, and I'm going to do my best to turn the amps up to eleven!"
"Eric's told all the stories that he wanted to tell and it's been a great ride. He helped us re-introduce Vampirella and we have been very happy with his stories and we're sorry to see him go," adds Dynamite Entertainment President and Publisher Nick Barrucci. "But Brandon Jerwa has big plans for the series, and it's incredible! I don't want to give too much away but it's a great new direction and fans will be happy."
Brandon Jerwa's comic book career began in 2003, when he submitted a script to Devil's Due Publishing that was accepted, and was eventually published in G.I. Joe: Frontline #11-14. Soon afterwards, he became the main writer on G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero and also wrote several G.I. Joe miniseries. On May 18, 2006, Brandon was featured on episode #24 of the Game Show Network's I've Got a Secret; his secret being that in honor of his work on the G.I. Joe comics, Hasbro used his face as the basis for the G.I. Joe action figure Dragonsky. In 2006 and 2007, Jerwa began writing for Dynamite Entertainment, working on the series Highlander, co-writing the first four issues with Michael Avon Oeming before moving on to a prolific run on Battlestar Galactica. Jerwa and Eric Trautmann collaborated on a project called Wide Awake, which appeared first as a short story in Popgun Vol. 2, then as a Free Comic Book Day special, and then later as a free webcomic. In 2009, the duo pitched an idea for a graphic novel to DC's imprint Vertigo, which was accepted, and soon after Jerwa was contacted about working with DC directly. Jerwa's first work for DC Comics was in September 2009 as the writer of the Inferno co-feature in The Shield, a monthly series that introduced re-imagined versions of the Red Circle Comics superhero characters into the DC Universe.
Brandon Jerwa currently writes Pantha in addition to Vampirella for Dynamite Entertainment!

TURKEY DAY SHOT DOWN BY 'RUNAWAYS'11/22/17 @ 8:44 pm EST
Oliver Queen welcomes the Piano Man to the Arrowverse for Thanksgiving. And this is guaranteed to be NO turkey!
Big Bad Cayden James (Michael Emerson) wants to celebrate America's holiday by blowing up a concert ... you guessed it, a Billy Joel concert. The iconic singer will appear in the "Arrow" adventure airing Thursday night on The CW via actual concert footage.
“For the Thanksgiving episode of 'Arrow', we wanted Cayden James to threaten a major event at Star City,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim told Entertainment Weekly
. “A variety of ideas were discussed, but when we settled on a rock concert, I knew it had to be Billy Joel.”
Longtime Joel fan Guggenheim wrote a letter to the musician asking his permission to feature actual concert footage and a song.
“Having grown up on Long Island — where, as it happens, this episode’s concert footage was taken from — I’ve been a fan of Billy and his music since I was 7 years old,” Guggenheim says. “He’s always been an inspiration to me, personally and artistically. I told him as much when I wrote to him to ask for his permission to use his concert footage in our episode and when he agreed, it was one of the happiest days of my career. I chose ‘No Man’s Land’ for the episode because I wanted to use an album track and I’ve always liked how that particular song sounds live.”

NEW TEASER FOR JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM11/22/17 @ 3:46 pm EST
So THAT'S who Jude Law will be in "Captain Marvel"!
Following on the heels Wednesday of news that Law was in talks to take the male lead role in the female-starring Marvel Studios pic, Variety
has updated its report from saying Law's role is unknown to the following:
"Law will be playing Doctor Walter Lawson, a.k.a. Mar-Vell, who becomes a mentor of sorts to [Carol] Danvers as she tries to figure out her new powers."
In the comics, of course, Mar-Vell is the name of a Kree warrior who himself bore the name Captain Marvel. His death by cancer is a Marvel classic and took place in the company's very first graphic novel by Jim Starlin. Carol Danvers was a supporting character in Mar-Vell's comic long before she gained powers as Ms. Marvel, more recently called Captain Marvel.

parenting book,” said Bryce Carlson, Managing Editor, BOOM! Studios. “That, my friends, is the circle of life. It’s also the cosmos telling you to buy this book.

'COCO' SINGS $2.3M TUESDAY NIGHT11/22/17 @ 2:48 pm EST
Brie Larson will not be talking to herself in Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel" film. Variety
is reporting Jude Law is in talks to take on the male lead of the film. That exact role is currently unknown, except the characrter will be a mentor of sorts to Larson's Carol Danvers.
Ben Mendelsohn has signed on to play the big-bad in the movie, with “Half Nelson” helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck directing. Kevin Feige is producing.
Marvel had no comment.
Feige announced at this year's San Diego Comic-Con that the film will be set in the 1990s, before the Avengers ever thought of assembling. Samuel L. Jackson is expected to reprise his role as super-spy and sometime SHIELD jefe Nick Fury.

The battle continues!
