DC Comics Reveals “Action Comics” #1000 Retailer Variants

A few days ago I shared the variant covers that span the years that “Action Comics” has been on the stands. These clever editions took a decade each to showcase the adventures of Superman, the Man Of Steel. Hopefully you saw that post and if not, just click HERE for the overview. You’re going to need this when you visit your local comic book retailer next month when issue #1000 hits the stands. In addition to those variants, many of the retailers will have their own exclusive editions and I’ve secured a stockpile of images for you to peruse. I’ve named the retailer and the artist involved in the variant cover and I’ve started with the two popular comic retail giants of our own Metropolis and then the rest are in alphabetical order. Check it out.

Opening: “Justice League” in Theaters Everywhere (11/17/2017)

It sure is a busy day for the fans of the live-action comic book presentations as not only has Netflix begun streaming “The Punisher” but today is the day that the DC Extended Universe goes “All In” as Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg stand united as The Justice League against a common worldwide threat. Yes my friends, the long awaited “Justice League” film opens up today in theaters everywhere and comes care of Warner Brothers Pictures. Below you’ll find the theatrical poster along with premise and casting. I’ll add some additional thoughts afterwards.

The Synopsis: Months after the events of Batman v Superman and inspired by Superman’s sacrifice for humanity, Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince assemble a team of metahumans – The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg – to face the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf and the Parademons who are on the hunt for three Mother Boxes on Earth.

The Cast/Characters:
Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman
Henry Cavill as Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman
Amy Adams as Lois Lane
Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman
Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman
Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/Flash
Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg
Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko
Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor
Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth
Diane Lane as Martha Kent
Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta
J. K. Simmons as James Gordon
Ciarán Hinds will appear as Steppenwolf
Amber Heard as Mera
Kiersey Clemons as Iris West
Julian Lewis Jones as undisclosed

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Even though I greatly enjoyed the trailer than was revealed during NYCC, I am a little bit on the fence about this one. It has too much of the video game look that I hated about the action sequences in “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and we all know full-well how that film has been received at this point. Now, the DCEU found great success with the “Wonder Woman” film earlier this year so can “Justice League” work from that momentum? I am certainly hoping so because I’d love for them to continue to build upon this universe as opposed to letting it all go. The timing of the film will not let me see it during the opening weekend and probably not until the middle of the following week so if you see it right away please don’t post any spoilers in the comments. Feel free to let us know if you had a positive or negative opinion only because that is fine. I’ll likely do a spoiler free review a few days after I finally see the film. That’s all I have for now so tell me, are you excited for “Justice League” or are you giving it a pass.
