DARK DAYS AHEAD FOR THE DC UNIVERSE


Spearheaded by Snyder, these new stories will reveal the dark underbelly of the DC Universe. The mysteries of THE FORGE and THE CASTING will hit shelves on June 14 and July 12, respectively, and break new ground in DC’s publishing line.

 

“Art like this demands an epic story,” says Snyder. “DARK DAYS posits a mystery that traces all the way back to when I started on BATMAN. I’ve hinted at them over the years with Easter eggs and clues. This is a mystery that literally begins at the dawn of man and spans generations of heroes and villains and ultimately leads to huge revelations about the past, present and future of the cosmology of DC. I couldn’t be more excited for DARK DAYS. It’s the prelude to the event we’ve been developing for years.”

 

“We’re taking all the ethos and excitement of the work Scott and I have been doing in the Batman titles and unleashing it across the entire DC Universe,” adds Tynion IV. “The size and scope of what we’re looking to do with DARK DAYS could only be accomplished by the best of the best. Andy, Jim and John are legends. All of us on this project are pushing one another, and every concept, to the extreme.”

 

Visually powering this event is a master class of artists, including Kubert, Lee and Romita Jr., who will drive DC’s initiative to bring artists to the forefront of the storytelling process. Beginning with DARK DAYS, these writers and artists will collaborate to develop new ideas and characters, further enriching the DC Universe.

 

“Working with Scott and James on DARK DAYS is the culmination of the big ideas and endless brainstorming that came out of a recent creative summit,” explains Lee. “It was tremendous fun having peers like Andy Kubert and JRJR in with some of our top writers. Strategically, Dan and I have talked for a long time about bringing the artist back to the table in the genesis of big, epic events. The creative summit was just that, and the level of collaboration was truly invigorating and electrifying. We can’t wait to share DARK DAYS with the DC faithful…they’re in for a thrill ride!” 

Wonder crew: Superhero James

Wonder Crew is turning the table on the conversation about gender stereotypes and toys, which has largely been focused on presenting more options for girls to play. Wonder Crew brings a great addition to the toy market by offering a buddy that helps boys develop their emotional maturity, including compassion and kindness, to help them grow to be good men, husbands, fathers and more.

Combining the adventure of an action figure with the emotional connection of a stuffed animal, 15″ Wonder Crew Buddies are available now. The crew includes Will (Caucasian), Marco (Hispanic), James (African American) and Erik (Asian). Each comes dressed in superhero gear, complete with matching mask and cape for kids.

 Leveraging its ongoing movie fan research, Fandango is differentiating FanShop from other merchandise sites and apps by curating select products and experiences that are handpicked by studios, filmmakers and fans.  New merchandise and experiences will be introduced throughout a movie’s life cycle, so there is always something new for fans to discover.  In the coming months, FanShop will also feature dedicated hubs for beloved franchises. 

 Fandango plans to promote FanShop across the company’s digital network, and connect consumers directly to the store to peruse and purchase merchandise.  In the near future, fans will be able to purchase movie tickets and merchandise in the same transaction on Fandango, and buy merchandise with Digital HD movies on FandangoNOW, the company’s video on-demand service.  Fandango also plans to offer movie ticket and merchandise bundles as special promotions, gifts with purchase, and other events. Some of the movie ticket bundles will also include promo codes for merchandise on FanShop. 

Fandango’s digital network is a fully integrated ecommerce and content business dedicated to movies, featuring best-in-class properties that reach more than 60 million movie fans per month.  Fans can discover movies on Fandango Movieclips, the No. 1 movie trailers and content channel on YouTube, and decide what to watch by using Rotten Tomatoes’ critic reviews and Tomatometer scores.  Fandango and Flixster are the go-to destinations for purchasing movie tickets, while FandangoNOW enables fans to buy or rent movies at home and on the go. FanShop is a natural addition to the network, giving fans a destination to celebrate their favorite movies, characters and franchises through unique and exclusive merchandise and events.

Fandango’s expanding digital portfolio is driving record-breaking ticketing growth, sending more and more consumers to the theater every year.  The company’s ticketing increased more than 30% in 2016 year-over-year, and is already up 28% to date in the first quarter of 2017.  Fandango continues to pioneer new ticketing innovations on its own site and apps, as well as integrate its ticketing on leading technology and social platforms, such as Messages for iOS 10, Facebook, and others.

The company has also grown its business internationally in Latin America, one of the fastest growing global film markets.  In December 2015, Fandango acquired Brazil’s No. 1 online ticketer, Ingresso.com, and in December 2016 acquired Peruvian-based Cinepapaya, renamed Fandango Latin America (Fandango.lat), expanding its online ticketing business to Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Ecuador and Bolivia.
