DC Comics has announced a 2013 launch for Justice League of America, an ongoing series written by Geoff Johnsand drawn by David Finch.

“This is a very different kind of team book,” Johns said. “On first glance, people might think the heroes of the Justice Leage of America stand in the shadows of Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League, but Green Arrow, Katana, Martian Manhunter, the new Green Lantern, Stargirl, Vibe, Hawkman and Catwoman thrive in the shadows. They’re underdogs who have everything to prove and something to lose. They’re a team of unlikely heroes who will help one another discover they’re as A-List as anybody — yes, even Vibe.


“Though getting there won’t be easy. Why they’re formed, why each member joins, what they’re after and who the society of villains is they’re trying to take apart will all be clear in the first issue when it hits early 2013. David and I are really focused on delving deep into what it’s like to not be a member of the big seven and why, sometimes, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.”

* The Dark Knight Rises placed fifth at the box office over the weekend with an estimated $7.1 million, pushing its domestic total to $422.1 million.

The Batman sequel passed Toy Story 3 for 11th place all time and is $0.6 milion behind The Lion King for 10th and $1.2 behind Pirates of the Carribbean: Dead Man’s Chest for ninth.


* Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox have announced the release dates for the 3D theatrical launch of two Star Wars movies.

Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones will be in theaters on Sept. 20, 2013, with Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith arriving on Oct. 11, 2013.
