Apparently it wasn’t only the bad guys who got biffed and pow’d on the 1966 Batman show.
DC Comics’ ongoing line of Hanna-Barbera comics have led to some of the best (and at times, weirdest) comics around—but another delight has been the regular crossovers these characters get to have with DC universe mainstays. Another wave is on the way, which means that Aquaman is going to meet Jabberjaw, and I can’t…
But it’s a very specific kind of murder.
Next year, the Teen Titans are making the leap to live-action, and now we’ve got our first look at the show in the form of the boy wonder himself.
Given how the movies are playing out, it’s more likely that we’re just going to get a new cinematic Batman before we get one in the role long enough to introduce Damian Wayne as the violent, League-of-Shadows-raised version of the Boy Wonder. If we ever did though, having him played by Gotham’s David Mazouz would be…
I’m still not entirely sure how DC’s new Dark Nights: Metal is going to incorporate that terrifying squad of evil, alternate universe Batpeople, but that doesn’t matter right now. Folks, we need to have a talk about the Batman Who Laughs and his creepy-ass Robins and how I’m never sleeping again.
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.
Damian Wayne and Jonathan Kent have got their own comic now, thanks to this week’s arrival of Super Sons. It’s everything you want out of a team-up from one of the most delightful little shits in DC comics, and the perfect straight man in the form of the kid of steel himself—in fact, it might even be a better team up…
We’ll be seeing more from the Lego Batman Movie at Comic-Con this week, but we’ve now got our first look at characters in the film beyond Will Arnett’s goofy Dark Knight—and they’re looking a little different from their usual incarnations.
During a Facebook Live interview earlier this week, Warner Brothers toured the new DC Universe: The Exhibit, and might have accidentally revealed the identity of Batman v Superman’s Robin.
In what should honestly not be a surprise to anyone who saw Batman v Superman, it turns out that Batman’s youthful sidekick Robin was also someone who preferred murdering criminals as opposed to sending them through that pesky justice system.
The gay subtext of the relationship between Batman and Robin has been the butt of jokes for decades. Over at Slate, Glen Weldon adapts an extract from his book, The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture, that examines the history of Batman’s relationship with Dick Grayson and its homoerotic undertones.
In Batman v Superman, one of the many teases to the larger DC Universe is Bruce Wayne’s Batcave memorial to Robin. Logic, and those ominous laughs painted on the chest, suggest the Joker killed him. Now we have confirmation, as well as a few more details.
Today at WonderCon, DC comics unveiled the creative team rebooting their entire universe in their Rebirth overhaul.
Robin War, DC’s new event series about the army of teens running around Gotham in the name of Batman’s sidekick, is pretty much all about the identity of Robin, and what it means to take on that mantle—but for one Robin in particular, Dick Grayson, it seems like it’s all about another particular mantle.
DC are planning a few changes to their ongoing series ahead of the Convergence event hitting their titles soon, but according to Batman writer Scott Snyder, the end of the Dark Knight's current arc could transform the character, as well as his ward Robin, in some pretty significant ways.
In recent years actors like Michael Keaton and Christian Bale have laid claim to the Batman character in movies, but your parents (or grandparents) are probably more familiar with Adam West's take on the superhero from the campy 1960s TV series. Which means that Mattel's gigantic version of the George Barris-designed…
Holy Erithacus rubecula, Batman! This is just too damn cute. Flickr User CakeInMilk has given Lego Batman - complete with 60's style Lego Batmobile - a new partner in crime: An adorable Robin that looks like... err, Robin!
I... I would have joked about it, but it seemed too absurd to even make fun of. But here we are, and Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller has announced in all apparent seriously that Gotham will feature Robin's ultimate origin, when his acrobat father and mother meet. I have no words.
Thanks to DC's Diamond Previews solicits for January 2015, the next person to step into the green boots of Batman's sidekick Robin has been revealed. Since it's a spoiler, the reveal is after the jump — but I do feel confident the new Robin's identity will not shock you. Something else will, however.
