Here’s a version of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice that I’d enjoy watching. Someone went and set footage from the Adam West, George Reeves and Lynda Carter Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman shows and it works wonderfully.
Rumors abound that DC Comics’ new “Rebirth” project will reboot its comics continuity yet again, and put an end to the “New 52" era that began in 2011. Although the current DC universe has often been a mess, it has also resulted in some fascinating new directions for its heroes. In case the end is nigh, we’ve looked…
The 80s were a simpler, more macho time. It was the era of Ronald Reagan, Rambo, and Bruce Springsteen’s patriotic denim buttcheek. But when I think about 80s pop culture, I think about heroes who got their asses handed to them. I miss that vulnerability and determination to keep going after a horrendous defeat.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the classic campy Batman TV series starring Adam West that premiered on January 12, 1966, today Lego has officially revealed a massive new 2,500-piece Batcave set that includes the retro Batmobile, Batcopter, and Batcycle.
Zach Snyder just dropped a new teaser for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice on Twitter, showing off a bit of new footage that we’ve seen hinted at in earlier teasers.
Wives and girlfriends of superheroes aren’t as hard-done-by as parents of superheros, but they’re a close second. Not only do they inevitably have a rough time, but everybody (including fans) hate them—which is no surprise. Each superhero girlfriend has a large number of factors working against her.
It sucks that Will Smith won’t be in the Independence Day sequel—but wait ‘til you hear the random explanation for his character being gone. Alas, this is standard practice. When stars decide not to come back, movies come up with rationales for writing them out, that go beyond “dog ate my homework.”
It’s been one hell of a year for DC Comics. Sure, they didn’t explode their comic book universe, but the heroes and villains of DC have gone through some big changes. Last week, we caught you up with what’s going on in Marvel’s “All-New” universe, and now, it’s time to catch you up on Superman and pals.
The biggest challenge for the new Star Wars was to make us love Rey and Finn as much as Luke and Han. Mission accomplished! But most of the time, when a venerable franchise introduces new characters, it’s a horrendous failure. Here are 10 long-running series that actually made us care about new characters.
The star of any Batman movie isn’t the caped crusader, or the over-the-top villain he’s trying to defeat. It’s the Batmobile. The Dark Knight’s ride has seen countless design changes over the years, but it’s always been packed full of wonderful features that always make it the real star of the show.
The 1966 television show Batman oozes charm and insanity in equal measure. Some of that delicious mixture can be found in the hilarious names Batman gives his devices, each helpfully labeled for the benefit of the audience. Because the internet is fabulous, here’s a Twitter account that’s started collecting every…
So that happened. After years of intense secrecy around Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the latest trailer went from 0 to 100 in terms of spoilers. Not only did the trailer show the reveal of Wonder Woman, but it even introduced the film’s big bad guy: Doomsday. Here’s what we learned.
After all, Batman is never more dangerous than when he’s being underestimated. Spoilers ahead...
Screen Rant has a new video up that explains just why a number of film locations look like you might have seen them before: they’ve been reused from film to film.
On a rooftop in Gotham City in the video game Batman Arkham Knight, I had to beat up six ninjas without getting hit. It took me 46 attempts, one after the other, during one frustrating hour.
Tearing through your town in a full-size replica of the tank-like Batmobile that Batman drives in the Arkham Knight game is sure to get you pulled over in no time. But a smaller go-kart version of that same Batmobile? Your local police might just ask to take it for a spin.
What’s your favorite Batmobile? They all have their own charm, don’t they? The Tumbler was brute force bicep flexing whilst kissing bad ass. The 60’s Batmobile was fanciful and fun and totally goofy but cool in all the right ways. But my favorite is probably the Batmobile from the Tim Burton movies. It’s slick and…
Is it possible to be Batman? Okay, better question, who could afford the technology to be Batman? Could we even make much of what we see being used by Batman in the Dark Knight movies?
There’s about a month and a half to go until the night of ghoulish glee that is Halloween—but why wait that long when you could be terrifying the living bejesus out of your neighbors right now with this petrifying replica of the Joker crawling out of your front lawn? This thing is one hell of a Garden Gnome.
I mean, grumpiness is part and parcel of being the Batman. Darkness. No parents. Being called “The Dark Knight” means grumpiness is part of the job. But my god, the look on this figure’s face is so comically brooding that it looks like Batman’s just having the biggest sulk of his life.
