There are few things more glorious in superhero comics right now than the Batman ‘66/Wonder Woman ‘77 mash-up series. But its last few chapters, despite featuring the amazing Burt Ward Robin’s evolution from Boy Wonder to disco goddamn Nightwing, have also taken a fascinatingly dark turn.
If there’s one name that is synonymous with Batman, it’s Bob Kane. As the series’ original creator, he’s long been seen as the genius behind the Dark Knight. One documentary is shining a Bat Signal on the other man behind Bruce Wayne.
Salutations, my self-adhesive envelopes. Sorry “Postal Apocalypse” is a day late; I’d explain why, but I, uh... swore an oath to a wizard. Or something. Look, it’s been a long week. A long week that ends with answers: How Marvel could have connected its movies and TV series way better! Who’s worse at time travel than…
Ever since DC began its Rebirth initiative, one giant mystery has hung over its comics: just how the hell do the Watchmen play into the new DC universe? Today’s Batman is the first issue in the saga that promises to reveal this mystery. It’s light on revelations, but it already has us asking even more questions.
Gotham, a show ostensibly about Batman, is setting itself on the path to become Gotham, a show actually about Batman.
Tom King’s got big plans for the next few months of Batman. And the ending is a big old fight between the Joker and the Riddler over who should have the right to kill Batman. It’s like Civil War, but with bad guys and hopefully no character assassination.
This weekend, DC and Warner Bros. will reveal the next trailer for Justice League—and they’re going to spend the next two days reminding you of that with a ton of new posters and little snippets of footage. Here’s the first batch, focusing intensively on Atlantis’ king, Aquaman himself, followed by Batman and the…
Ever since Flashpoint, DC Comics has tried not to stray too far into roster-wide comic book event series. That’s going to change this year with Dark Days—a big new project being pitched as what could be an over-the-top sendoff to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s run on the Dark Knight.
It’s been a year since composer Hans Zimmer retired from superhero movies, and it looks like we finally know why. He loves Christian Bale’s Batman too much.
Hello, my admirable addressees! Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night will prevent me from fulfilling my duty, which is non-existent, because I am a fake mailman. This week: Should Captain America be considered a supervillain? How does Batman do anything if he never eats? And how do you teach someone all…
Even those of us who despise the idea of celebrating birthdays probably wouldn’t mind having a party if it included this truly fantastic Lego Batman cake that’s completely edible—save for the glowing eyes that will surely cause bodily harm if swallowed.
The Russo brothers’ next project after Infinity War could be a Valiant Comics TV show. Of course the Power Rangers movie has a post-credits scene. Get another glimpse at the Inhumans show with more set pictures. Plus, the Defenders are in action in new videos from the set, and a new look at Transformers: The Last…
First published way back in 1947, some 70 years ago, Goodnight Moon is an iconic children’s book that has been parodied and copied almost as much as Monopoly has. But leave it to MAD Magazine to come up with one of the best, featuring Batman just trying to get a little shuteye in his Batcave.
Sorry about last week! Your not-very-approachable neighborhood post-apocalyptic fake mailman caught… I don’t know, the space flu or something. Short version, I had more phlegm than mail, and I had a lot of mail—so let’s get to it! This week: The best ’90s cartoon intro, why nerds argue so much, and whether it’s worth…
The age-old art of swapping one character’s model in for another for video game hijinks is always fun. But I really like to imagine that this is actually some secret Bruce Wayne training regimen where he prepares for the possibility of fighting literally anyone in the DC Universe by pretending that he can become them.
Trying to choose your favorite episode of Bruce Timm and Paul Dini’s Batman: The Animates Series isn’t easy, but “Almost Got ‘Im”, where Gotham’s villains trade stories about almost defeating Batman over a game of poker, is often considered one of the best. Now this specific episode has been transformed into a new…
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice cleaned (some of the) house at this year’s Razzies, winning four awards and making us all a little more afraid that Ben Affleck really will end up dropping out of The Batman altogether.
There are a lot of potential DC movies coming in the next few years.
It’s been a tumultuous few weeks behind the scenes of the upcoming Batman film, but now it’s official. Warner Bros. announced that Matt Reeves, the director of Cloverfield, Let Me In, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and this summer’s War for the Planet of the Apes, is directing a standalone Batman film.
Van Wayne’s in charge of Wayne Security—the fictional company where NBC comedy Powerless is set— and wants to get in touch with Batman for some reason. So, of course, he dresses up in a Robin costume and hopes the World’s Greatest Detective swoops down to talk.
