In the nearly 80 years that he’s spent terrorizing Gotham City, he’s gone by many different names. John Doe. Jackanapes. The Clown Prince of Crime. Puddin’. The Joker’s true identity is the card he’s always played closest to his chest, but it’s about to be revealed in DC’s upcoming Batman: White Knight.
There are plenty of things to be annoyed with about Batman and Harley Quinn. It looks cheap, it cuts more corners than it should, and it feels much more like an average TV episode than an actual movie. But the biggest problem is how much it cheapens Harley Quinn, turning a beloved character into an “Idiot Meat Skank.”…
Earlier this week, DC Comics revealed a major, incredibly unexpected return of a character that many fans thought they’d never see again, thanks to the final page of Dark Nights: Metal #1. It was definitely a shocking moment in a comics event that’s been promising to be a bonkers exploration of the DC mythos for a…
Batman’s origin story exists in something of an odd place within the grand comic book canon. It’s a tale we all know the general details and various specifics of. But writers seldom spend time on the timeframe of Bruce Wayne’s life as a young, newly orphaned kid.
Telltale Games’ ongoing creation of its own unique Dark Knight continuity—which began with last year’s Batman: The Telltale Series—has been fascinating to play through. The changes made to the people in Bruce Wayne’s double life have been surprisingly dramatic and the best one may be yet to come.
This Wednesday, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo will finally begin their utterly bizarre-sounding new comics event, Dark Nights: Metal. It’s already promised crazy armor and even crazier Batmen, but now DC has revealed that the series is going to plunge into the deep depths of the publisher’s own back catalogue.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly recap of the most delightful toys we’ve seen on the web. This week, a Grand Moff Tarkin figure that could give the Rogue One recreation a run for its money, some very cool (and very weird) robot monkeys, and even more Bat-mania with a slick new ride for the Dark Knight.
In just a few weeks, “Force Friday II” begins—which means the first wave of toys based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi will hit shelves. Inevitably, that means people will start ruthlessly inspecting every toy they can find, hoping to decode clues about Episode VIII. But as you’ll see, movie merch is rarely a reliable…
The Dark Knight is one of the most iconic comic book characters of all time—and over decades of stories written about him, much has been said about what makes the character tick and what drives him. But truly, no insight about Batman can compare to Ben Affleck’s latest thoughts.
For a man the trailers have pointed out consistently usually works alone, Batman sure does have a giant plane to put his nonexistent friends in.
If there’s one thing the late, great Adam West and the ever...curmudgeonly William Shatner had in common, it’s their ability to chewing the hell out of whatever scenery they happen to be near at any given moment. Thankfully, both actors turned themselves up to eleven in the new Batman vs. Two-Face animated movie.
Duke Thomas, the Gotham-based vigilante formerly known as Robin, is getting back to his roots this November in Batman and the Signal, a new series chronicling his adventures as a sort of Batman-by-day who patrols the city while Batman’s indisposed. As the sun sets, Signal passes the baton to Bats.
There’s a meddlesome good-thing/bad-thing dynamic I experienced as I sat down with the next installment of Telltale’s Batman video game series: I kept waiting to be shocked. Then when the shock came, I wished it hadn’t happened at all.
During his time starring in Batman: The Animated Series, and in the countless video games, direct-to-video movies, and other spin-offs since then, Kevin Conroy has defined Batman’s voice for an entire generation. Which is why it’s such a delight to hear him become Christopher Nolan’s own Dark Knight.
Though the Batman and Harley Quinn animated movie and its tie-in comics are brand new, everything about them, from their visual aesthetic to the tone of their dialogue, feels as if they were plucked right out of Batman: The Animated Series.
Last year, Telltale Games’ episodic Batman game confidently carved its own unique interpretation of the Dark Knight mythos by shaking things up and doing the unexpected. The new trailer for the Bat-sequel teases more of the same.
Later this year, the DC Animated Universe is returning to one of its most iconic worlds, the art deco noir of Batman: The Animated Series for Batman and Harley Quinn. But before the movie, DC is launching a new digital comic that sets up why Harley and Batman are teaming up where Harleen is the star—and we sat down…
Though he doesn’t have traditional super powers like most of his friends, Batman’s got a lot going for him. He’s a handsome, rich, athletic white guy with virtually endless resources at his disposal. And yet, every so often, people come along who feel as if that’s not enough to make Batman a real superhero.
Second only to Toy Fair back in February, this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con brought us more toy news than our wallets can reasonably take. Many of the reveals were only available on the convention floor, but there will still plenty of announcements you can look forward to as we creep closer to the holidays.…
