Monday Musings: Justice League and Captain Marvel

Today’s edition of Monday Musings features some Justice League comics and news from the Captain Marvel film. All of which I’m excited for.

Scott Snyder Explodes the DCU with Justice League Comics

Snyder’s biggest reveal, though, was that that there’ll be two brand new ongoing Justice League books post No Justice. Justice League Dark, written by James Tynion IV with art by Alvaro Martinez, Raul Fernandez, and Brad Anderson, sees the cult classic team return, but this time led by none other than Wonder Woman! She’ll be joined by Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Detective Chimp, and Man-Bat in one of the wackiest and most fun lineups we’ve seen for a long time. “Justice League Dark is the biggest craziest magic book you can imagine. It’s the biggest magical war thrown into one place,” Snyder enthused.

I wasn’t at WonderCon on Saturday (I only attended Friday) and this was a panel that I was bummed to miss out on. Nerdist has some great coverage of the panel and the new Justice League titles. Justice LeagueJustice League Dark, and Justice League Odyssey are all on the way from DC. Wonder Woman will be leading a team of some unusual allies in Justice League Dark and I can’t wait to check it out along with the other two titles.

Production Underway on Marvel Studios’ ‘Captain Marvel’

Marvel Studios has begun principal photography in Los Angeles, California, on its newest film, “Captain Marvel.” The production is shooting in and around the greater Los Angeles area, which will also serve as the production base for the film. The production will also shoot on location in Fresno, California, as well as locations in Louisiana, including Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

These are the details Marvel gave about Captain Marvel today. It’ll be interesting to see how this movie plays out since it’s taking place in the 90s and won’t directly tie-in to the current events of the MCU. We’ve never seen something from the 90s in the Marvel films and that gives them new territory to play with.
