10 Greatest Batman: The Animated Series Episodes

23 August 2015 3:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros

While Christopher Nolan’s gritty Dark Knight Trilogy is beloved, Tim Burton’s kooky Batman films have ardent fans and Joel Schumacher’s campy sequels… exist, a lot of Bat-fans claim that the all-time best version of the caped crusader on-screen is the animated series which ran from 1992 and on-off all the way until 1999.

Helmed to near-perfection by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm, and sporting the acting talent of Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill as the Joker, Arleen Sorkin as Harley Quinn and many others besides, it expertly strode the line between winning the hearts of superhero-loving children and those of hardened adult comic book fans. It may have undergone a more kid-friendly redesign in its later seasons (being retitled The New Batman Adventures) but the quality generally held out.

And it, of course, began the run of numerous shows – such as the brilliant Batman Beyond – that »

Donald Trump Claims He's Batman And Jimmy Kimmell Animates The Nightmare

18 August 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Is billionaire Donald Trump the closest thing we have to a real-life Bruce Wayne/Batman? Probably (Definitely) not, but don't tell Trump. In a recent campaign stop in Iowa, Trump was captured on camera, telling a young William Bowman (9) that he was Batman.  Some one needs to let this kid know that there's more to being Batman than having a ton of money.  This is what happes when we no longer have After-School and Saturday Morning cartoons.  America is failing its youth. "I Am Batman"- @realDonaldTrump #BatTrump The story is on http://t.co/H1qbFAYqzt including video! pic.twitter.com/qf7H0z2djF — Monte D.

Turbo Fast, the animated spin-off from the theatrical film CG film Turbo, has seen its second season premiere on Netflix, which means that all of it is available for immediate streaming. Before checking out the show and Kevin's episode, however, see what he has to say on the connection between Batman and The Stinger and so much more. Interview Conducted by and © Edward Gross Voices From Krypton: So in watching The Stinger, the impression I get is that he would be Batman…..if Batman banged his head really, really hard. Kevin Conroy: [laughs] That's a very good way of putting it. That's a very good way of putting it. Isn't this character great? You take everything I'm not allowed to do as Batman, you know? Batman is humble. Batman doesn't want any attention. Batman just does everything and wants to disappear. This guy is arrogant. He's cocky. He's a narcissist. »

Kevin Conroy wants Batman role in The Killing Joke

28 July 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier today it was reported that Mark Hamill is set to reprise his role as The Joker for the upcoming animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke, and now legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy has admitted that he’d love to reunite with Hamill as the voice of the Dark Knight.

“Oh, God! Are you kidding me? I’d do it in a heartbeat,” said the Batman: The Animated Series star in an interview with Comic Book. “I love working with him. I couldn’t believe when they killed off The Joker. I would love to do it, and I hope that that happens.”

Well, we’ve already got Hamill, so surely we need Conroy too, right?

Batman: The Killing Joke will be released direct-to-video in 2016.

Mark Hamill Is the Joker in 'Batman: Killing Joke' Animated Movie

27 July 2015 7:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During the world premiere of Justice League: Gods and Monsters at Comic-Con, Bruce W. Timm revealed that the next DC Universe Original Movie will be an adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke. He also announced that the animated movie will feature, "an original 15-minute prologue that helps set up the story, giving even longtime fans something new to look forward to."

Sdcc: Batman: The Killing Joke animated film announced alongside Batman: Bad Blood and Justice League vs Titans

11 July 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For years, Batman fans have wished for an adaptation of the famous graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke, perhaps the most famous Joker story in the Clown Prince of Crime’s history. DC just announced that next year fans will finally get what they want with an animated adaptation of the renowned story.

Written by the legendary Alan Moore, The Killing Joke sees Joker escape Arkham Asylum once again, but instead of targeting Batman himself or plotting to destroy Gotham City, Joker’s plot is on a much smaller scale. He intends to prove a simple point to Batman and the rest of the world: all it takes is one bad day for any sane person to snap. To achieve this goal, The Joker sets out to torment Commissioner Gordon through his daughter, Barbara, who also happens to be Batgirl. In one of his most deplorable and infamous acts, »

Book Review – How To Be A Superhero

10 July 2015 4:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Garcia reviews Mark Edlitz’ new book, How To Be A Superhero…

Each day, the internet is flooded with news stories about each and every piece of development surrounding an upcoming comic book adaptation or superhero film. We here at Flickering Myth spend our days dissecting and discussing those various topics with as much fervor and excitement as any fan out there. Yet, while there are dozens of stories or quotes circling the web at any given time, they usually only pertain to one part of a larger story; actors give brief updates about their upcoming roles, writers and directors talk about various influences, etc.

Enter Mark Edlitz, whose impressive tome How To Be A Superhero puts all of those news reports to shame by diving headfirst into the expansive superhero genre with long, in-depth interviews with dozens of the genre’s veterans, like Adam West, Jack Nicholson, John Wesley Shipp, »

Batman: Arkham Knight PlayStation 4 review

26 June 2015 12:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The final part of Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy is here, and it features a lot more Batmobile...

I think we can all agree that Batman: Arkham Origins was a bit of a misstep. It was decent, yes, but it did nothing for the series, and the content that what there was simply so-so. This is clearly not lost on original developer, Rocksteady, as the 'trilogy' is now at an end with the latest, and fourth game, Arkham Knight. Origins isn't counted, either due to its prequel status, or the fact is just wasn't as good. Whatever the case may be, here we have the culmination of Rocksteady's Batman vision, and possibly the best entry into the series yet.

H-bomb on wheels

Much has been made by Rocksteady of the major addition to Arkham Knight, and that's the Batmobile. With a world much lager in size than the previous games, Batman »

Video Games: 'The Joker' Returns In Epic New Trailer For Batman: Arkham Knight

15 June 2015 7:51 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Batman: Arkham Knight is the final installment in the Batman “Arkham” video game series, which began with Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and a prequel title, Batman: Arkham Origins. The series will bring its trademark style to the Batmobile for the first time ever, giving players the option to either grapple above the streets of Gotham or tear through them in the armored behemoth (but let’s be honest, they’ll go with the latter). The Scarecrow, who hasn’t been seen since Arkham Asylum, will ascend as the game’s primary villain, along with the mysterious new Arkham Knight character. Kevin Conroy will once again bring The Dark Knight to life as the voice of Batman.   »

Celebrities Love Batman: Arkham Knight

12 June 2015 5:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taking a new approach at marketing the Caped Crusader’s next interactive outing, Batman: Arkham Knight developer Rocksteady Games and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive employed the assistance of the game’s voice actors and other celebrities. The result is a video that combines some great-looking gameplay snippets with complimentary reactions, comments and exclamations from some familiar faces.

YouTube fans will recognize IJustine, while rap fans will recognize Wiz Khalifa, who’s also prominently featured here. They’re joined by Neil Patrick Harris, Breckin Meyer, Minka Kelly, Kumail Nanjiani and, of course, both Troy Baker and Kevin Conroy. They all seem very impressed with the final result, but that’s not surprising given the nature of the video as well as Rocksteady’s stellar track record with the Batman license.

Enjoy, then make sure to stay tuned for more information pertaining to Batman: Arkham Knight as we approach its June 23rd launch date. »

Wiz Khalifa Is a Natural at Batman: Arkham Knight

12 June 2015 12:28 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

To promote Batman: Arkham Knight, SNL's Taran Killam rounded up a bunch of celebs and made them play the game. Neil Patrick Harris, Wiz Khalifa, Blake Anderson, Minka Kelly, Kumail Nanjiani, Breckin Meyer, Joe Manganiello, iJustine, Troy Baker, and Kevin Conroy are all on deck — some better gamers than others. The best is hands down Wiz, who has major skills as well as his own sound effects (actually, I guess it's unclear if he's doing sound effects or trying to get Fetty Wap's attention). He just makes virtual crime-fighting look so effortless and graceful. More important, though, the game (out June 23) looks divine. »

Batman: Arkham Knight Takes Neil Patrick Harris and Other Celebrities to Gotham

11 June 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Batman: Arkham Knight will soon be upon us (I’m still on the fence about whether or not to pre-order it), but in the meantime, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Rocksteady Studios are bringing in the celebrity endorsements for a new trailer directed by Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam. In the video, we see Neil Patrick Harris, Wiz Khalifa, Blake Anderson, Minka Kelly, Kumail Nanjiani, Breckin Meyer, Joe Manganiello, iJustine, Troy Baker, and Kevin Conroy “Be the Batman”, although only one name on that list has actually been the goddamn Batman. But everyone else can play pretend and still enjoy what looks like a fun game, although is it good enough to warrant a purchase, especially if, like me, you’d have to get a next-gen system? How badly do I want to play a game that feels the need to cram in Riddler time trials for the Batmobile? »
