Batman Just Became a Victim of Police Brutality in the Dark Knight Sequel

9 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In 1986, writer/artist Frank Miller changed the world of superhero fiction forever with his epochal four-part Batman comics series, The Dark Knight Returns. But if his vision of Batman’s tone was glaringly obvious (dark, angry, punch-prone), his vision of Batsy’s politics was maddeningly ambiguous. On the one hand, he was a perfect vision of an ’80s reactionary: He came out of retirement to beat back the forces of an overly forgiving criminal-justice system and rowdy urban youths. But at the same time, his main rival was a Superman who did the bidding of Ronald Reagan. No, seriously. Today, nearly 30 years later, Miller just made Batman’s politics even more interesting. The first issue of Dark Knight III: The Master Race — a Dark Knight sequel co-written by Miller and Brian Azzarello and drawn by Andy Kubert — just hit stands. Within its pages, the Caped Crusader tackles an issue that »

Jessica Jones, Season 1 is a moody, gripping superhero tale

22 November 2015 3:21 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jessica Jones, Season 1

Created by Melissa Rosenberg

Released November 20th, 2015 by Netflix

Five episodes watched for review

Is there more to say about gritty, troubled superheroes? Yes, according to Jessica Jones, the latest Netflix entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After this year’s Daredevil, a show following the modern trend of dark comic book characters kickstarted by Christopher Nolan’s Batman films but dating back at least to the work of Frank Miller and Alan Moore, the thought of the style being passé seemed more than plausible. Especially in light of sharing a distribution platform with Daredevil, creator Melissa Rosenberg appeared to have her work cut out for her in making Jessica Jones stand out.

And to a certain extent, the series is of a kind with its moody forbears. The voice-over narration and shadowy city streets establish a strong linkage to film noir, revisiting ground well trodden by »

Frank Miller Talks 'Dark Knight III': "When It Comes to Batman, I'm a Raging Dictator"

20 November 2015 4:57 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Frank Miller is not a man who's hung up on his own achievements. Talking to The Hollywood Reporter about the upcoming release of Dark Knight III: The Master Race (which he co-writes with 100 Bullets and Wonder Woman's Brian Azzarello), Miller is in fine form, laughing and joking with inker Klaus Janson — who works with Andy Kubert on art for the main series, in addition to working with Miller on a 16-page mini-comic insert for the first issue — but refusing to be seen as the iconic creator the industry sees him as.

Batman 2018 Movie: 6 Influential Storylines We Want To See

19 November 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC Comics

Batman is a character with a rich, deep history so it’s somewhat surprising that the films mostly tell their own tales. All have taken loose inspiration from stories and themes rather than offering up more straight adaptations like Marvel and Fox have had much success. Still, with the Nolan trilogy quietly receding into memory and Batman v Superman due to hit next year, this could be the start of a new dawn for DC’s Dark Knight.

It’s going to be 2018 before Ben Affleck has his chance to dish out justice on his own terms, but Batman v Superman looks set to take more overt cues from the source material than ever before; specifically adapting sections from Frank Miller’s seminal work, The Dark Knight Returns.

With that in mind, now is the perfect time to take look at some of the most iconic and interesting »

Frank Miller Talks About Superman’s Penis and His Plans for a Children’s Book

17 November 2015 2:45 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There are no figures in the comics world more controversial than Frank Miller. But you'd also be hard-pressed to find one who's more influential. The 58-year-old writer and artist has been pushing buttons and boundaries since his groundbreaking run on Marvel Comics' Daredevil in the 1980s — a run that is the single biggest influence on the hit Daredevil Netflix series. Then, in 1986, he published his most monumental work: The Dark Knight Returns, a reimagining of Batman set in a dystopian future. He's had hits since then, many of which have made it onto the silver screen: Sin City and 300, most notably. But Dark Knight still towers above them all, setting the tone for nearly every Batman movie ever since (for better or worse). Now, against all odds, Miller is penning the Caped Crusader once again. Fourteen years after a poorly received (but underrated!) sequel in 2001, DC Entertainment is about »

Frank Miller to return with The Dark Knight IV, Dark Knight Returns prequel The Last Crusade set to arrive in February

17 November 2015 2:02 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Whiel DC’s upcoming limited series Dark Knight III: The Master Race has been billed as the final chapter of Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns trilogy, the acclaimed comic book creator has revealed to Newsrama that he’s now working on a fourth part in the series.

“I thoroughly applaud what [writer Brian Azzarello is] doing [on Dark Knight III: The Master Race],” said Miller. “But now that he’s doing his, it’s now a four-part series. I’m doing the fourth.”

Meanwhile, Miller is also set to return to his universe early next year with Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade, once again collaborating with co-writer Azzarello and artist John Romita Jr. for a prequel to Batman: The Dark Knight Returns that will explore the build up to Jason Todd’s death at the hands of the Joker. The 64-page one-shot is set for release on February 17th 2016.

November Geek Guide: The Dark Knight Returns (Again), A Tie Fighter Tie, And More Stuff to Look For This Month

10 November 2015 11:00 PM, PST | | See recent news »

When it comes to movies from the geekier side of Hollywood, November tends to be a bit of a slow period, falling between the rush of Halloween sci-fi and horror fare and the bigger-budget “event” films released around the holidays. That trend holds true this year, with only a few major features and lower-profile projects to take note of, but fortunately there's more than enough books, home-video releases, and other assorted geekery to keep you busy right through 'til December. Here are ten things to make sure you have on your radar this month:   Dark Knight III: The Master Race #1 Fans of the current state of the DC Comics cinematic universe owe a lot to Frank Miller and The Dark Knight Returns, his 1986 comic-book series that imagined a world in...

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Producer Talks Superhero Fatigue, Teases New Trailer

9 November 2015 1:40 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Come March, we’ll begin to witness the aggressive expansion of Warner’s DC Expanded Universe no thanks to the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and its importance in the grand scheme of things can’t be overstated.

Late last week, it was reputable producer Charles Roven that helped chart the company’s slate from this point forth, and today Collider has published an exhaustive interview with the DC expert that delves into the finer details of Zack Snyder’s colossal showdown, the threat of superhero fatigue and when we can expect another trailer.

First up, Roven tackled the issue of superhero fatigue, which is a topic that has cropped up in recent times with Hollywood heavyweights such as Steven Spielberg weighing in on the matter. Here, the DC producer states that, much like any genre in Hollywood, it’s really a »

'Batman v Superman' Concept Art Shows Off Ben Affleck's Batsuit

6 November 2015 10:28 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, DC All Access released its latest video, which featured concept art for the highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The sneak peek showed off art for Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. Now, the artist behind some of this work is showing off two of his concept art paintings for Ben Affleck's Dark Knight. The two pieces come direct from Jerad S. Marantz's blog. This is what the artist has to say about these two pieces.

"Finally get to show these! Here are some of the images that I painted for Batman versus Superman. I was fortunate enough to spend a bit of time on all of the characters, but was lucky enough to be able to focus on Illustrating the new Batman costume with the incredible costume designer Michael Wilkinson. This was a childhood dream come true."

More Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Concept Art Surfaces

6 November 2015 3:56 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

A new look at Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is expected to drop before the end of the year (quite possibly with Star Wars: The Force Awakens), but today, we have some great new concept art from the highly anticipated release to keep us going in the meantime. This batch focuses on Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader and shows the design process behind bringing his take on Batman to life on the big screen.

Even just judging by the images above, it’s clear that Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns was an inspiration from the very start. That story is obviously also responsible for the armoured Batsuit we’ll see Bruce Wayne don to take down the Man of Steel.

Zack Snyder Explains How Batman Will Exploit Superman's Weaknesses

5 November 2015 7:00 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There's been a lot of debate over the years concerning how Batman, a mortal with no true superpowers, can even think about fighting Superman, who is an alien with nearly unlimited strength, speed, etc; so it's no surprise that Batman will hedge his bets and exploit any weaknesses he can find. 

We've seen from both Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, and the trailers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, that Batman will don an Ironman-like super suit to increase his own strength and speed when he fights Superman; however, that's not the only trick Batman has up his sleeve.

Director Zack Snyder said:

"The advantage that Batman has is the goodness of Superman; the compliance to fair play that Superman has... Batman knows how to exploit Superman."

So, Batman doesn't plan on making this a fair fight.

Here's my question: Has Batman ever really allowed for a fair fight? »

Hollywood Film Awards: Benicio Del Toro to receive the Hollywood Supporting Actor Award for “Sicario”

29 October 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Benicio Del Toro is a pretty singular talent in the industry, so it’s never a surprise when he does worth worthy of being honored. This year, the 19th annual Hollywood Film Awards have seen fit to bestow upon him the Hollywood Supporting Actor Award for his performance in Sicario. Of course, Del Toro more or less stole that film, so it’s a totally viable honor. He’s going to be in play for an Oscar nod in Best Supporting Actor, but regardless of if that nom happens or not, this shows how he’s still crafting memorable supporting characters. That’s always been Del Toro’s bread and butter, so this is just a perfect citation for him… Here’s part of the press release once again announcing this honor: dick clark productions announced that Academy Award-winning actor Benicio Del Toro will receive the “Hollywood Supporting Actor Award” for Sicario. »

9 things you never knew about Batman's nemesis The Joker

28 October 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Smile everybody: Batman's arch nemesis The Joker is about to make a dramatic comeback in Suicide Squad, a villain-packed blockbuster about the worst scum DC Comics has to offer.

Jared Leto sports the rictus grin and shock of green hair, but there's much more to the Clown Prince of Crime than his iconic look - as these nine quick-fire facts demonstrate.

1. He's based on monochrome movie star Conrad Veidt

Batman comic book trio Bob Kane, Bill Finger and Jerry Robinson are all credited with creating The Joker, but it was Finger who brought a crucial element into play: German screen actor Conrad Veidt.

When he produced an image of Veidt's pale-skinned, disfigured character Gwynplaine from the 1928 film The Man Who Laughs, lightning bulbs ignited and The Joker was swiftly born.

2. The Joker was once Bruce Wayne's mother

‘Power Up’ #4 closes in on conclusions

Power Up! #4

Written by Kate Leth

Illustrated by Matt Cummings

Published by Boom! Studios

Well, it seems like the last issue’s wish for action to pick up has been answered.

The issue opens with Amie’s neighbors Sal and Derek receiving some of Amie’s mail while listening to a silly pop song on the radio. It’s an adorable scene with the happy couple drawn in warm colors by Cummings as Sal takes the trash out. However, it doesn’t last too long when Derek in typical Magical Girl genre fashion gets possessed by some weird space thing to become the monster of the week to draw out our heroes…

Why DC’s Prez Is the Best Comic You Aren’t Reading

27 October 2015 2:29 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The road that brought us to DC’s latest Prez reboot is an odd one. Created by Captain America co-creator Joe Simon and artist Jerry Grandenetti in the early 1970s, the original incarnation of the character was pitched to audiences as a charismatic Caucasian lad named “Prez” Rickard, who improbably becomes the first teenage president of the United States. The series failed to catch on, not least of all because of its garbled, vaguely-but-not-quite-radical-enough political bent. In the '90s, Prez saw a brief resurgence as a brief, darkly comic side-story in Neil Gaiman’s seminal Sandman and again in a 1995 story written by a then-green Ed Brubaker for DC’s Vertigo comics imprint. Frank Miller even made Prez a sinister hologram in The Dark Knight Strikes Again. Nobody cared about Prez. He was a joke character on par with comic oddities like Animal Vegetable Mineral Man or Brother Power the Geek, »
