Kario Salem To Write New Gods Movie

This past Thursday, word broke that Warner Bros. had tapped Ava DuVernay to direct a new DC Film based off the inhabitants of the Fourth World with New Gods.

Now, that project has sagged a writer in the form of Kario Salem.

Known for his work on The Score and Chasing Mavericks, Salem will craft the narrative and work closely with DuVernay on the film. New Gods marks the second DC tentpole to be helmed by a woman, following last summer's Wonder Woman from Patty Jenkins.

The New Gods are natives of the twin planets of New Genesis and Apokolips. New Genesis is an idyllic planet ruled by the Highfather, while Apokolips is a ruined dystopia filled with machinery and fire pits and is ruled by the tyrant Darkseid. New Genesis and Apokolips call themselves gods, living outside of normal time and space in a realm known as the Fourth World.

Jack Kirby created this unique set of DC Comics characters, which includes the likes of Orion, Darkseid, Granny Goodness, Mr. Miracle, Lightray and others, back in 1971.

Audiences have already met a member of the New Gods within the DC Expanded Universe in the form of the villainous Steppenwolf. The character terrorized the likes of Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg in Zack Snyder's Justice League.

Review: Dynamite - James Bond: The Body #3

Bond is back!

Britain's top agent returns in a brand new issue of James Bond: The Body next week from Dynamite Entertainment and writer Ales Kot, which focuses on the gut this time around and sees Bond attempting to stop a new super weapon from making its way onto the market.

The majority of the issue takes place within the steaming walls of a local sauna, where Bond sits surrounded by a large group of Neo-Nazi arms dealers. Seeing the man as a prospective client interested in a new type of semi automatic rifle who sympathizes with their world vision, the group eagerly welcomes Bond into their midst - thanks largely in part to some help from a seemingly bottomless bottle of liquor. As the group sinks deeper and deeper into a drunken stupor, Bond is able to learn the mechanical workings of the new weapon and further gain his foe's trust.

Eventually, the group leaves the sauna and makes their way to a snow filled firing range to allow Bond to finally get his hands on a few of the new weapons - flawless instruments of death and destruction that the secret agent knows he cannot allow into the hands of the world.

After getting comfortable with the new weapon, Bond decides that a celebration is in order. His friends eagerly agree, but this is when the super spy strikes at the very heart of these men.

Viciously, Bond attacks, using the liquor bottle as his weapon of choice. Awakening from their drunkenness, the Neo-Nazi arms dealers attempt to subdue the secret agent, but Bond makes quick work of his foes, effortlessly littering the pure, white snow with their blood.

Satisfied with his work, Bond holsters a pair of guns and heads back toward the sauna to make quick work of the remaining Nazi sympathizers before they have a chance to react.

This latest issue of James Bond: The Body is one downright brutal blood bath.

Once again, Ales Kot presents a story that unfolds like an action sequence from one of the super spy's many onscreen adventures, while Rapha Lobosco's art is bold and bright- and fans are sure to eat the whole thing up from the start.

Rating: 5/5 - "A downright brutal blood bath that plays out like one of the super spy's many onscreen action sequences! Fans are going to love it!"

James Bond: The Body #3 lands on newsstands Wednesday, March 21st.

Until next time, Infinite Earths fans!
