After years of anticipation, Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is finally in theaters! We’ve created two spoiler-free reviews – watch us talk about it above and click here to read our extended thoughts – and now you have the chance to see the film and judge it for yourself. Maybe it’ll be one of your favorite comic book movies, maybe it won’t. But if you are reading this article, it should mean you’ve already seen the movie! If not, go away! There’s potential spoilers ahead! Seriously, shoo! For everyone else, here are the comics you should read after you’ve watched Batman v Superman. Not only will it allow you to appreciate some of the nods that popped up in the film, but they’ll also help you prepare for some of the future DC Comics and Warner Bros. movies.
Some of the below collections are currently out of stock online, but they’re still available in the three Midtown Comics stores!
Superman. Batman. Wonder Woman. The Flash. Those are just a few of the names that immediately come to mind when people talk about the DC universe. Despite appearing in comics since 1955 and being absurdly powerful, J’onn J’onzz, a.k.a. Martian Manhunter, has never reached the same level of popularity as his heroic peers. He doesn’t have a movie on the way, either (or at least one hasn’t been announced yet…). Despite not being a household name, DC is giving the martian another chance to step into the spotlight in his very own series. The Earth is once again at risk (when is it not in the DCU?), but don’t let that familiar story element fool you because Martian Manhunter is one of the most entertaining and gripping titles DC is currently publishing. A good comic book should never fly under the radar, so we want to help spread the word about this great story!
