DC Stiffs Jim Starlin At Batman Vs. Superman Premiere

Matt McGloin Posted: 03/21/2016 - 18:17 COMMENT

Comic book legend Jim Starlin was given an invite to the premiere of Batman Vs. Superman by DC, as one of his characters appears in the film: Callan Mulvey is playing Anatoli Knyazev (aka KG Beast). Jim Starlin created the character back in 1988's Batman #417.

Well, Jim Starlin went to the Batman Vs. Superman premiere, but was turned away as his name wasn't on the guest list for some reason, and now he's not sure if he'll see the movie.

Hopefully, this is just a simple mix up, and DC and Warner Bros. follow up on this.

Certainly Jim Starlin deserves to see Batman Vs. Superman.


Heading down to the city to attend the premiere of Batman vs Superman. This should be fun. I understand one of my characters (the KG Beast) makes a brief appearance in the film. This should be fun.
