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. Batman: Arkham Knight hits the X-Box One, Playstation 4, and PCs on June 2nd, 2015. »
Christian Bale, most would say, made an incredible Batman. Long-time fans of the character also champion Kevin Conroy, who voiced the Caped Crusader through numerous animated incarnations. Michael Keaton’s turn is deeply underrated, that kid on Gotham is doing yeoman’s work, and though I have my fears about Batman v Superman, I think Ben Affleck is going to rock the doors off the thing. They’re all great performers, they all do justice to the character… and yet whenever I see them, some small part of my brain whispers a simple reminder: none of them are Adam West. Without him, none of them would have had their shot at the cape and cowl, and for all the derision foisted on his campy take on the Dark Knight, his version has endured for almost half a century. We’ve waited decades to see his Batman anywhere outside of a bootleg DVD; this week, »

Jessie Robertson reports on Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con 2014….
So, this weekend I , along with my friend Jesse, packed up and headed to the Windy City for our first big major Con, Wizard World in Chicago. We were there from Friday night to Sunday afternoon, taking in all the sights, sounds, Deadpools and Harley Quinns!
For this article, I wanted to go over 5 things I really liked and 3 things I didn’t care for at the event…
Chicago Comic Con was held at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center, which is an enormous venue with easily accessible parking and great directions throughout the building on where you need to go. The website itself was highly detailed, and you get a guide when you enter the building that shows you every single celebrity, every panel and every vendor that will be involved in the event with times and it was super helpful. »

“What are you?’ That question has been on many a criminal’s mind for numerous decades. Out of absolute fear, these evildoers stare into the face of darkness personified, a creature of the night that is a true symbol of justice. I’m talking of course about Batman, the Dark Knight, a crimefighter who strikes fear into the hearts of those deserve it. He is a highly complex character and throughout his 75-year history, many talented (and some not so talented) actors have brought him to life on the silver screen.
Lewis Wilson Batman (1943) The first film appearance of the Caped Crusader occurred at the height of World War II in 1943, four years after the character’s creation. Lewis Wilson portrayed Batman in a 15-chapter film serial released by Columbia Pictures, in which he and trusty sidekick Robin go head to head with Dr. Daka, a demented Japanese scientist who »

With Batman: Assault on Arkham debuting today on Blu-ray and DVD, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released two more clips which showcases the Suicide Squad. a not-so-friendly rivalry between Suicide Squad members Deadshot (voiced by Neal McDonough) and Captain Boomerang (voiced by Greg Ellis), where Deadshot showcases his incredible accuracy. The second showcases the entire team in action as they take out a number of Arkham Asylum guards, under the watchful eye of Suicide Squad leader Amanda Waller (voiced by Cch Pounder).
Take a look at these new scenes where Deadshot before picking up this animated adventure on Blu-ray and DVD.

Yeah, I said it. I'm obviously a lifelong Batman fan, especially in the realm of animation. I'm very critical of the Dc Universe films..they're very hit and miss for me. This film is without a doubt my favorite of the Dc Universe films to date. Assault on Arkham has it all..violence, sex, humor and dark twisted enjoyment for all. This one is what 'The Losers' should have been. Its like the Expendables with Dc Comics villains. Top all that off with tons of villain cameos and Kevin Conroy reprising Batman, the role that he owns, and you have an absolute winner.
This review will contain some, but not all, Spoilers! I'm not going to give you the plot points, but don't read if you don't want a few things revealed, I don't wanna have to call you a waaaaahmbulance.

Warner Bros. Animation’s steady assault of direct-to-Blu-ray superhero movies continues at a frenetic pace, so much so that the subjects keep pushing further into the fringes of the DC Comics universe. So it is with “Batman: Assault on Arkham,” which assigns the Dark Knight top billing, but really focuses on a thrown-together team of lesser villains given the suicide mission of conducting a raid on Arkham Asylum. Yes, Batman shows up, as do a number of better-known members of his rogues gallery. Still, the movie will play best with those who don’t need to consult Wikipedia to identify King Shark.
Aimed squarely at hard-core comics fans (and given the carnage and implied sex, clearly not intended for bat-tykes), these Warner Bros. titles are defined by their frenetic, near-nonstop action, and the short-hand they can employ. Unlike live-action features, there’s no worrying about crossing over or pausing to explain anything, »

Batman: Assault on Arkham, 2014.
Based on the hit video game series, Batman must find a bomb planted by the Joker while dealing with a mysterious team of villains called, The Suicide Squad.
I’ve been on record before as a fan of the DC Animated offerings. Marvel seems to have perfected the theatrical experience while DC has managed to successfully parlay their characters into television, animation, and video games. The newest animated movie from DC takes a cue from the extremely successful Arkham video game series to deliver a fairly good offering in Batman: Assault on Arkham.
Fans of the video games will be happy to see this rich world given a little more exploration, though to »

Our weekly round-up of all the latest superhero news and talking points, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC Cinematic Universe, Gotham, The Flash, Arrow, Batman: Assault on Arkham, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Young Justice, Teen Titans Go!, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3, Black Panther, Daredevil, Deadpool, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Venom Carnage, Kick-Ass 3 and more….
Well, the big showdown between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America 3 is no more, with Warner Bros. blinking and shifting the release of BvS away from Marvel’s May 6th 2016 date to March 25th 2016 (a wise move, considering it will now face very little in the way of competition). The news was followed by the announcement that Warner Bros. has finally pulled the trigger on a DC Cinematic Universe by setting a further Nine »

Every animated character has a voice actor behind it, giving it life. Actor Kevin Conroy has been associated with the Batman character since he voiced him over the course of 86 episodes on Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995), and through many spin-off series’ and feature films that have followed like The New Batman Adventures (1997-1999, 24 episodes), Batman Beyond (1999-2001, 48 episodes), Justice League (2001-2006, 55 episodes) and the video games Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009) and Batman: Arkham City (2011). Warner Bros. has continued using Conroy as Batman’s (and Bruce Wayne’s) voice in direct-to-video feature films over the years, and in the new film Batman: Assault on Arkham, Conroy once again lends his distinctive baritone to give the Caped Crusader that familiar voice fans have comfortably accepted and embraced.
