Top 5 Villains That Could Replace Deathstroke In The Batman, If Manganiello Is Out

21 March 2017 9:54 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome to The Top 5, where every week, we list five things for a given topic. These topics can range from "Top 5 Speedsters We Would Like To See On The Flash" to "Top 5 Groot Lines From Guardians Of The Galaxy"

Of course, because everyone has an opinion, there is sure to be some disagreements, which is why, despite the title "The Top 5," very rarely are these actual "best of" articles. Instead, they're meant to provide entertaining insight, and to stir a discussion, and give everyone a chance to speak their mind. 

If you have a suggestion for a Top 5 piece, send them my way via #TheTop5LRM on Twitter. If I choose your topic, I'll be sure to give you a shoutout!

John Waters and Dita Von Teese Featured in Documentary About Cult Icon Tura Satana

20 March 2017 12:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Great news for Tura Satana fans: a documentary about the legendary actress, vedette and exotic dancer is in the works.

Satana became a cult icon after playing Varla — the leader of a women’s gang who kills a young man with her bare hands and helps kidnap his girlfriend — in the 1965 Russ Meyer’s cult classic “Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!”

However, Satana turned her life around, becoming a famous burlesque dancer, and even dating Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. According to The Guardia, »

Batman Group Solicits June 2017 Gallery 1 of 5

Last week, we brought word that it appeared as though Joker and Riddler would be going head to head in the pages of Batman this June and, thanks to a freshly released batch of solicits, we now know that it’s an absolute certainty. Not only that, but we’ve also learned what’s on the horizon for related books such as All-Star Batman, Batgirl and Super Sons.

First, let’s talk about Batman, since I imagine you’re all anxious to hear about that one. As it turns out, we’re still in the dark when it comes to the wealth of the plot, but seeing as how DC is invoking the holy names of masterworks such as Year One and The Long Halloween, we can only assume that rumors saying the upcoming »

Marvel’s Iron Fist: cultural appropriation that belongs in the past

18 March 2017 2:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Daredevil and Luke Cage stood out for their real-world takes on superheroics but this new series is an awkward rehash of the ‘mighty whitey’ trope

Marvel’s Netflix superhero shows have always stood out for their eccentricities. Daredevil lays its chips on a crimefighter who kicks ass despite being blind. Jessica Jones is a depressed private eye who uses her powers to defend herself against male aggression. And Luke Cage is about a black man whose hard-times heroism embodies the African-American experience, and who still – occasionally – utters his Blaxploitation-era catchphrase “Sweet Christmas!”. So you might think Iron Fist, about a hero who can charge his yellow glowing fist with chi drawn from the molten heart of a dead dragon, would offer up similarly outlandish thrills. Unfortunately, the comic book’s sense of fun hasn’t quite translated to the small screen, while those familiar with Hollywood’s history of »

Hans Zimmer Breaks Down The Difference Between His Two Bats

17 March 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Love him or hate him, Hans Zimmer has quite the presence in the world of cinema. If you're here, reading this, then you've definitely heard his music, whether it be that from Pirates of the Caribbean, Sherlock Holmes, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, Batman V Superman, and even The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And that's just a sampling of his work! Whew!

Though he's not the only composer to score the music for two different Batman actors -- Elliot Goldenthal wrote the music for Batman Forever starring Val Kilmer and Batman & Robin with George Clooney -- he is the only one to write two completely different scores for separate Batman Universes. Based on the quality of Batman Forever and its sequel, I'm assuming Goldenthal didn't really give character motivation much thought when writing his Batman theme, but Zimmer took it very seriously. Now that he's done with superhero themes forever (or for now. »

Expect Justice League To Contain A “Little Introduction” To J.K. Simmons’ Jim Gordon

17 March 2017 12:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One thing that we all have to grow accustomed to in any rebooted superhero film franchise is the recasting of not only the title character, but the supporting ones as well. After having gotten used to Michael Caine and Gary Oldman as Alfred Pennyworth and Jim Gordon, respectively, in The Dark Knight Trilogy, moviegoers must now acclimate themselves to seeing Jeremy Irons as Bruce Wayne’s trusted butler and J.K. Simmons as Gotham City’s top cop, the latter of whom makes his DC Extended Universe debut in Justice League.

Having already put a definitive spin on J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi’s trilogy of Spider-Man flicks, Simmons is obviously no stranger to the genre, but it stands to reason that his Commissioner Gordon will be a bit more straight-faced in the performance department.

The question on the mind of many a fan since his casting has been just »

Wayne Trailer Gives Batman The Logan Treatment

17 March 2017 7:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Logan seems to be all that anyone can talk about right now, and with good reason. Unique and quite unlike anything we’ve seen from comic book movies before, James Mangold delivered a stunning final outing for the clawed mutant, showing us that you don’t need huge set pieces, a boatload of special effects or even a PG-13 rating to score a huge win in the genre. Thankfully, people are sitting up and taking notice of that and now, a whole host of superheroes look set to follow a similar path.

One character who likely won’t be going the stripped down, R-rated route, however, is Batman. Given the way that Warner Bros. is currently handling the Caped Crusader over in the DC Extended Universe, it’s not likely that we’ll get a more mature, character-driven film for the iconic hero any time soon – which is quite unfortunate. »

Your Complete Guide to Binge Watching 'Marvel's Iron Fist'

16 March 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Defenders roster is now complete. With the premiere of Marvel's Iron Fist -- all 13 episodes are available to stream at midnight -- the final spot in Netflix's assemblage of small screen Avengers has been filled by Danny Rand. Before you binge, here is a comprehensive guide of everything you need to know about Danny and his glowing fist of kung fu glory.

"The show is very gritty and very dark in certain aspects," Finn Jones explains to Et. "We tackle serious issues, like the heroin problem in New York and corporate cataclysm and corruption behind the scenes. There's definitely dark elements, but I think how Danny is different from the other superheroes is Danny has this naivety to him, which actually gets him in a lot of trouble."

Logan director expresses his excitement for The Batman

16 March 2017 2:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Mangold, director of recent Wolverine hit Logan, has expressed his excitement for The Batman and his friend Matt Reeves.

With Mangold’s R-rated Wolverine flick Logan now behind us – the last dance of star Hugh Jackman – our attention is starting to turn back to future projects, which of course includes the much troubled DC solo movie The Batman.

Director Matt Reeves recently rescued the project from Ben Affleck who is now taking a back seat on affairs, focusing purely on his performing duties as Bruce Wayne. Recently a rumoured start floating about a page one re-write for the flick amid reports that production will be pushed back to 2018.

One fan of the character seems to be looking in a different direction for his future Batman kicks however, and reached out to James Mangold to see if he might be interested in directing a Batman film down the road. Mangold »

Marvel's Iron Fist Clips: Who Is Danny Rand?

16 March 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Netflix's newest Marvel television series Iron Fist has an identity problem. Each of the preceding series leading up to Iron Fist -- culminating in the epic mini-series The Defenders later this year -- exhibited distinct points-of-view and unique attitudes. Daredevil expressed Matt Murdock's Catholic-driven rage, Luke Cage was typified by his social consciousness and a soulful mood, while Jessica Jones demonstrated female empowerment against the backdrop of addiction and sexual abuse. Each was an extraordinary character living within a fully-defined world. The perplexing question left unanswered by the lead-up to Iron Fist is: who is Danny Rand? And more important, why should we care? 

Over the past couple days, Netflix has dropped three new clips, which aim to define the character of Danny Rand, portrayed by actor Finn Jones, while also fleshing-out the world of Iron Fist and how it will be woven into the tapestry of what will soon become The Defenders. »

'Iron Fist': How Marvel's New Show Reinvents a 1970's Kung-Fu Superhero

16 March 2017 10:28 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A young boy loses his wealthy parents, receives spiritual guidance and martial-arts training in the Far East, then returns home to right various wrongs and restore order in the big city – it’s a familiar superhero origin-story narrative. Very, very few comic-book adaptations would introduce their main character, however, wandering barefoot and disheveled in the streets of midtown Manhattan, Walkman blazing (listening to, of all things, OutKast's "So Fresh, So Clean") with a semi-stoned grin on his face, looking like he just stepped away from a drum circle in a Phish pre-show parking lot. »

Dennis O’Neil: Of Fists and Dragons

16 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Spring already? Well, okay, but I look out the window and see ten inches of snow. (And you may now imagine me sniffing and grumbling.) But, alas, just because I may not happen to like it, this spring bushwa, doesn’t mean anything surprising is about to happen. I can’t help noticing that the universe seldom alters its plan to accommodate my preferences. Rotten, but there you are,

So I guess we make the best of it, which is what we grumbling homo saps have always done, more or less, when we’ve gotten our grumbling out of the way. (First things first.) Okay, anything interesting on the immediate agenda? Ummmm – nope. But before I offer a tepid correction to that last sentence (if sentence is what it was) let me call your attention to an entertainment that lurks in the shadows of Thursday night.

All-Star Batman #8 Gallery 1 of 9

This review contains minor spoilers. 

Scott Snyder’s All-Star Batman series, which features the Dark Knight travelling the Us and meeting a revolving door of his worst enemies, has served up seven high-quality issues so far. Issue #8, however, might just be the best one yet.

In ‘Ends of the Earth: Part 3,’ Batman travels to the swamps of Mississippi to confront the Mad Hatter, who he believes might be behind the necrotic plague released by Mr. Freeze back in Part 1. It turns out that the Lewis Carroll-loving weirdo might have a bigger bombshell than that up his sleeve, though. In a trippy, ultra-surreal tale, Jervis Tetch suggests that Bruce Wayne’s life as Batman is all a hallucination brought on by Tetch’s own ‘Looking Glass’ technology.
