Predator Actor Sonny Landham Has Died

Sonny Landham passed away from congestive heart failure Thursday. He was 76.

The actor, who was part Seminole and part Cherokee, was best known for portraying Native American tracker Billy Sole in the 1987 action flick Predator.

He was also known for roles in The Warriors, Action Jackson and Lock Up. With over 50 acting credits to his name, Landham continued to appear in films through the 1990s.

In 2003, he would enter the world of politics, embarking on a brief campaign for the governor of Kentucky, but was unable to secure the Republican Party’s nomination. In 2004, Landham also ran for the Kentucky State Senate. In 2008, he was nominated by Kentucky’s Libertarian party for candidacy in 2008 for one of Kentucky’s seats in the United States senate, however his comments on a political radio show caused the party to rescind his nomination just a few days later.

Landham is survived by his son, William, and daughter, Priscilla.

The team here at Infinite Earths would like to express our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Mr. Landham. Please know you're in our thoughts during this difficult time.

Tony Isabella Ignites Black Lightning: Cold Dead Hands

Black Lightning will soon be joining the DC TV Universe, but first he's returning to comics in the pages of a new six-issue miniseries written by Tony Isabella, the man who originally created the famed DC superhero alongside Trevor Von Eeden.

Check out all the details posted below...

BLACK LIGHTNING: COLD DEAD HANDS is written by Isabella and drawn by Clayton Henry (Harbinger). However, don’t expect a throwback to Isabella’s previous time with the character. While the hallmarks of a good Black Lightning comic are all there, Jefferson’s gone through some changes. He’s still a teacher who works to be a positive force for his students both in and out of costume, but he’s younger than he’s ever been before—around 28 years old. He’s also not married and in a departure from the show, he doesn’t have daughters.

Jefferson does, however, still have a very big problem by the name of Tobias Whale. But Black Lightning’s notorious adversary has gone through some redesigning as well. He’s now fit, built like an athlete, and he’s no longer an albino. But don’t think it’s made Tobias Whale any smaller of a problem for Jefferson or the city of Cleveland, in which the series is based. He’s as ruthless and powerful as ever.

With Black Lightning’s CW series set to bring more awareness to the groundbreaking character than ever before, the timing has never been better for Lightning’s return to the DC Universe. Cold Dead Hands promises to be a fitting introduction to the world of Jefferson Pierce for new readers and a very welcome return for longtime fans, penned by the man who knows the supercharged hero better than anyone.

Look for the first issue of Black Lightning: Cold Dead Hands to hit the streets on November 1, 2017. You can check out the full solicit below…

Jack Napier Returns In Batman: White Knight

Sean Gordon Murphy has revealed that, in his upcoming miniseries Batman: White Knight, his heroic Joker has an identity - and it's one that fans haven't heard in a long time.

Murphy took to his official Twitter account to reveal that this new take on the Clown Prince Of Crime will go by the name Jack Napier - the same name used by the character in Tim Burton's Batman movie back in 1989.

Outside of the movie, and a single episode of Batman: The Animated Series, this is the very first time that Joker has taken on the identity of Jack Napier.

In the pages of Batman: White Knight, Joker is a reformed politician who feels he can better help Gotham than even the Batman can.

Look for it to arrive on newsstands beginning October 4th.
