Wats up Comic Vine fam, jus getting back into the comic book world as of late and missed the whole Rebirth era. If anyone is kind enough to explain the reboot and how that happened, I'd be stoked. Trying to get back on track with the issues, so like what the title says, what's your favorite comic series and/or story arcs thus far? My comic preferences are DC & Marvel Comics although you can add TMNT into the is one of my favorites as well. Thanks in advance for helping out!

New 52 Aquaman design is definitely my favorite for sure.

@impure_world: He could jus ask the fish in the ocean if they've come across a clown fish and a blue tang with each other. Usually fish cruise around with their own species, if not, by themselves. It'll be a rare siting in real life to see these two fish side by side. Jus saying lol.

The only bad thing about this news is that it's even more doubtful to see him write a book again anytime soon.

Congratulations Mr. Johns. I'm really happy about this.

As for the news, I think over all this is very good for DC because Johns 'gets' it when it comes to stories and ideas. Although it probably means he won't be writing any/many comic books. I'd much rather have him write some ongoing books that I can spend hours with than having maybe a little bit of influence on a two hour movie every six months...

While I'm happy for what this means to the live action treatment of DC's property, like everyone else I'm very disappointed that this will mean he either write a little bit here and there, or he'll be so busy that he won't write any comics for some time.

@thepreface said:

Johns won't be writing as much which goes in the con column, but he'll be overseeing which is just as important.

If he sees something going off the rails when it's not supposed to he has the power to nudge it back into the right direction.

Congrats man.

This is great news and I'm happy for him. The fact that this means he probably won't be writing comics anymore is saddening to me tho.

I agree 100% with you guys and been thinking a lot about it too. I really love Geoff Johns' as a writer and read his whole entire Green Lanterns run as well as all his runs in New 52 (Aquaman, Justice League, Justice League of America, etc). After the what he did in DC Universe: Rebirth and what Johns has done with the comics recently (Rebirth), he definitely left with a bang.

@ultimatepower6: True, but DC Entertainment was going very bad lately. I hope to see more DC showcase, more DC Nation shorts, more beware the Batman, more Young Justice, some Vertigo animated movies (Sandman, Hellblazer, Swamp thing, ...).

@ultimatepower6 said:

@jb681131: You think Johns will promote the animated sector? As much as I want Young Justice to come back, and Beware the Batman, I don't see that happening. Just helping out on the live action films takes a lot out of someone, and while I can see the shorts and showcase possibly making a comeback I don't see much hope in the animated realm besides what we've been getting. One Justice League animated film, One Batman film, and One "Elseworld" film. That's what they're doing, and that's what's bringing in the money.

As far as the Entertainment side of things for DC Comics goes I think Johns will be doing a lot of good stuff for not only the films but animated series as well. He's definitely gonna make it enjoyable for not only us that grew up watching these animated series/films as a kid but those who are the next generation of comic book readers as well. No doubt he'll be working on something for the young viewers in the future. Maybe bringing Young Justice back, could be a possibility?!

As confirmed from Bleeding Cool News, Geoff Johns is now President as well as Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment. He is well known in the film industry for his works on many DC animated movies, the Green Lantern movie, Smallville, CW series The Flash & Arrow as well as being noticed to have helped out Zack Snyder with Batman vs Superman and the upcoming Justice League. He has also help co-write the main character Arthur Curry in the new Aquaman movie for director James Wan and also has screenplay credit for the Wonder Woman movie set to be released in 2017. Johns is now talking about making a Batman reboot alongside Ben Affleck, of course playing the role as Bruce Wayne. Just want to take the time to congratulate Geoff Johns on his promotion. Can't wait for what he has in store for us and DC Entertainment in the future!

@ecstaticgrace: Will she possibly have a role/cameo as Mera in the Justice League movie?

Yeah for sure! And a Deadpool movie was definitely the best choice to start that trend. I'd like to see a Wolverine 2 [R] rated movie. That would be pretty badass.
