    whats DMZ?
    DMZ is an American comic book series written by Brian Wood, with artwork by Wood and Riccardo Burchielli. The series is set in the near future, where a Second American Civil War has turned the island of Manhattan into a demilitarized zone (DMZ), caught between forces of the United States of America and secessionist Free States of America.

    The series is set in New York City, sometime in the near future and in the midst of a civil war that has turned the island of Manhattan into a demilitarized zone.

    The conflict concerns two primary forces: the federal government of the United States of America and the Free States armies. In issue #8, its explained that the Free States are less a geographical entity than "an idea", and that the movement began with an uprising of secessionist groups that formed a separate government in Montana before spreading across the country. The Free Armies and the U.S. military first met in combat at Allentown, Pennsylvania where the Free Armies won, after which the Free Armies descended on New York. The planned evacuation of Manhattan went disastrously wrong, but despite that the US Army was finally able to halt the advance of the Free States forces.

    There was even a sense among troops that the US forces were ready to start reclaiming territory from and pushing back the Free States army, until the calamity of Day 204, when a squad of US soldiers mistakenly gunned down nearly 200 peace protesters. With the US robbed of all momentum and public support for an advance, the two sides settled into an uneasy stalemate, where Manhattan is the location of the DMZ between the two warring parties, with the FSA occupying territory including New Jersey and inland, and the United States holding Brooklyn, Long Island, and other parts unknown. The US Government still holds at least part of New York State, and presumably other territories further northeast.

    In an interview, Brian Wood described the back-history as the citizens of Middle America having risen up against the pre-emptive war policies of the US government, causing a Second American Civil War. He expanded on this in a later interview:

    Midwestern militia groups revolt against their local governments in protest of rampant U.S. adventurism overseas and, in the absence of the National Guard, are able to gain far more ground than they thought possible. Small insurgent groups pop up in towns and cities across the country, and a sizable force, the Free States Army, pushes toward Manhattan. The city proves too big for them to take, and also for the U.S. Army to defend. The war stalls there, a stalemate, neither side being able to shift things.

    Manhattan is mainly empty, with only 400,000 people still on the island (compared with 1.5 million in the 2000 census), populated only by the poor who were not evacuated, snipers and holdouts. Wood has described the setting as: "Think equal parts Escape from New York, Fallujah, and New Orleans right after Katrina".

    The comic series begins when reporter Matty Roth arrives in Manhattan, five years after the outbreak of the war. Through the series' first 22 issues, DMZ followed Matty Roth through various crises in his first year and a half around the DMZ and the surrounding areas, such as military bases of the Free Armies and of the United States. In issue #23, however, Brian Wood started several tangents from the main storyline and devoted single issues to the stories of several other characters from the DMZ; a street artist, a young girl living rough, the triad leader Wilson, Matty's love interest Kelly, a local DJ, and the commander of the Central Park "Ghosts" – Soames, respectively. The story returned to primarily following Matty Roth in issue #29.

    do you understand what im getting at?? WHAT WHITE PPL THINK, AND WHAT THEY DEFINE THINGS AS IS NOT THE STANDARD YOU SHOULD BE GOING BY. That is of course, if you are not mentally defeated by the complex of white supremacy, where everything whites do is the "right" way, where having straight hair and lightskin is "beautiful" but dark skin and nappy hair is "ugly"
    You're doing it wrong. You take one and really fuck them up; make an example to the other kids. Like grab the small bitch and gouge her eyes out with your thumbs. Then curb stomp her.

    Ben Affleck To Reportedly Play Batman In The Flash, But Not In Solo Film


    One of the worst-kept secrets in the DC Extended Universe is Ben Affleck's interest in departing the films permanently. A recent report by Variety claims that, while Affleck is expected to appear in the upcoming The Flash film, he will exit the DCEU and a new actor would accept the cowl for the Matt Reeves-directed The Batman.

    "While Ben Affleck is expected to appear as Batman in a standalone Flash movie, it is highly unlikely he will don the cape and cowl in Matt Reeves’ planned standalone Batman movie. The director is said to want to cast the role with fresh talent, according to sources," Variety's report reads.

    It's unclear exactly when Affleck's doubts about the DCEU began, with the films in which he has appeared often receiving harsh criticism.

    Affleck's first portrayal of the character was in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and, while his performance wasn't singled out as being disappointing, the overall film received incredibly poor reviews. When one reporter confronted Affleck and co-star Henry Cavill in an interview about these poor reviews, Affleck's seemingly despondent response created one of the most popular memes of the year and became a widely-shared viral video.

    Almost all interviews with the star bring up his involvement in the franchise, possibly shaking his faith in the role after having to regularly confirm he wasn't leaving.

    Rumors of Affleck's exit were seemingly confirmed as he distanced himself from The Batman, with Reeves taking over directorial duties. With Affleck already being 45, The Batman may focus on a much younger version of the character, which would possibly necessitate a new actor to take the reins.

    Recently, a source reported to Radar Online that Mad Men star Jon Hamm would be interested in taking the role, despite having previously collaborated with Affleck on The Town.

    "They've enjoyed working together and have been on good terms ever since," the source explained. "But Jon knows Ben has faced some criticism over Batman v. Superman and Justice League, and frankly thinks he'd be better suited for the job. This is business for Jon, not personal."

    Stay tuned for updates on The Batman and Ben Affleck's involvement in the DCEU.

    I have a feeling my theory on Flashpoint being a DCEU Reboot of sorts may be correct. Articles that there is a big shake up for the films moving forward by WB are coming in.

    Big DC Shake Up Reportedly Happening Because of 'Justice League'

    With the disappointing critical and financial reception to Justice League, the fifth film in the DC Extended Universe, Warner Bros. is making some big changes to how it will handle subsequent films in the lucrative shared universe, Variety reports.

    One of the changes will be Jon Berg leaving his current role of running the production division of the DCEU and will instead become a production partner with Roy Lee, who previously developed The LEGO Movie and IT. There is currently no frontrunner for his replacement. The shift is said to be happening in January.

    “This is something that Jon approached me about six months ago, and he expressed his goal was to ultimately be a producer at the studio,” Warner Bros. Picture Group President Toby Emmerich shared with Variety. “I first met Jon when, as a producer, he brought Elf to New Line, which remains one of the best and most evergreen titles in the library. We’re thrilled that Jon is partnering with Roy and anticipate their company being a valuable source of movies for Warner Bros. and New Line.”

    Despite being home to some of the most iconic characters in pop culture, the films in the DCEU have never had it easy.

    Zack Snyder became the main creative force in the DCEU, serving as an architect of the whole shared universe of films. The filmmaker was tasked with following the lauded trilogy of Batman films from Christopher Nolan, a challenging task for any filmmaker.

    The DCEU kicked off with Man of Steel in 2013, helmed by Snyder, who also directed 2016's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The films were financially successful, with many criticisms focusing on the dark tone of the films, drastically juxtaposed with Marvel's lighthearted endeavors.

    This summer's Wonder Woman offered a ray of light in the DCEU, being praised by fans and critics alike for its themes of hope and compassion.

    Last month, Justice League, which was the culmination of all the films in the DCEU, opened with the lowest opening weekend of all the films in the series, with criticisms once again being aimed at its darker tones, while also featuring more humorous moments that created a jarring overall experience.

    The next film in the DCEU to hit theaters will be Aquaman on December 21, 2018.

    Im hyped af for Shazam. So dope that he is finally getting his own film. He hasnt had his own solo series in awhile too in the comics which bums me out. He had his little arc in the back pages of Justice League in the new 52, but i dont think hes had anything since.

    Hope they really show off his differences to Superman as well.

    I mean it's not exactly the most unlikely theory here. We're talking about a story that once it was resolved removed about 10 yrs worth of history from the DCU and ended with a younger Batman thanking Barry Allen.

    Literally every piece on Flashpoint since it was announced flung that theory around lol

    It's by nature a story that doesn't leave the DC universe the same way it was in the beginning. Even the Arrowverse adaptation of it shook the hell out of that version of the DCU.

    First Look at Jason Momoa in 'Aquaman'

    The first look at Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, also known as the titular hero in the standalone Aquaman film, has been revealed.

    The photo was first revealed by EW, showing off Momoa fully covered in the Aquaman tattoos and emerging from a shadowy location, possibly aboard a submarine or ship. After all, this is a character who will be frustrated by how human have treated the earth and its oceans, and nothing about his appearance in this photo looks happy to see what's in front of him.

    Check out the photo below.

    aquaman-high-res-1064136.jpg

    "He really was this outsider and lived on the fringes of society," Momoa told ComicBook.com in an exclusive interivew. "We talked about him just being raised with his father, this blue collar worker. His father was a lighthouse keeper, but I probably worked on oil rigs. I'd be underwater and I could just rip the rig off and just weld."

    Momoa says the Aquaman seen in Justice League is really just "a weekend in his life," as the true evolution of the character is to be seen in the origin film.

    "And that was when I was alone," Momoa said. "There's people that I would save, that I could save, and there's people that I couldn't. The human side of me is that heartbreak of he couldn't save someone. Not knowing what to with these powers, he was a drinker. He'd just down that emotion. He couldn't ever get that out.

    "You're going to see that I really wanted him to be that gruff thing, because he has to become king. If Justice League is like seeing him at his lowest, and not just his lowest, but this loneliness that I wanted about him, so when we get to Aquaman you know why he became that, and how he had been put in that lonely spot.

    "And how he has to bring these two worlds together. Because you're going to see this ocean world, which we just pollute, and how do these people feel underwater with what the land does to the ocean. And this war that is going to come between the two, and I'm the only one that can link the two. He has to do it. He doesn't want to do it."

    In regards to the tone of the Aquaman movie, Momoa described it as a combination of an origin, an epic battle, and a big road movie.

    "In the story, we're going to see a couple different younger versions of me. And even before I was born, so you'll know where my mother came from, Atlantis. We've got to establish seven different kingdoms and the threat," said Momoa.

    "Surpassing Justice League, this moment in time is his call to become king. The only thing that can save Atlantis is me fighting my own brother. There's a big battle, and there's an epic [fight]. It's also a big road movie, because we travel all over the world. It's got that Star Wars quality of gigantic ships and guys riding sharks. It's going to be this whole world you've never seen before. You're going to see him start as this guy who probably rides bikes, works on cars. You get to see him this one way as kind of a dirty, dark, drunkard, and then turn into this regal king."

    Aquaman hits theaters on December 21, 2018.
