Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello Are Writing a New Batman Comic

3 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Since Tim Burton’s brooding, black-as-oil Batman hit theaters in 1989, the cinematic world of Bob Kane’s iconic detective has drawn invariably from the comics of Frank Miller. Miller’s 1986 The Dark Knight Returns, a four-part story about Batman’s return from retirement and self-imposed exile, seeped into the crevices of every subsequent comic book movie, from Sam Raimi’s Darkman to Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy; but it most notably acted as a template for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, which practically owes alimony to Miller. The brooding, hulking, neo-fascist Batman favored by Burton and Nolan stems from Miller’s Reagan-era creation, which erased memories of Adam West’s campy Caped Crusader from the minds of an entire generation.Now Miller will return to pen a new Batman comic, according to The Verge. The comic, called The Dark Knight III: The Master Race (hopefully an ironic title), is »

Yep, that's pretty much exactly what we thought Jared Leto as Joker would be

21 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In what is sure to generate a ton of conversation, David Ayer has released a photo of the full Joker look for "Suicide Squad" via Twitter, and it's certainly striking. Jared Leto is playing the character this time, and they've been teasing fans now for almost a full month with hints and glimpses. There was a paparazzi photo earlier this week of Leto on-set, showing someone a photo on his phone, and it looked like a finished Joker image. Ultimately, there's not much mystery to the basics of how he's going to appear in the film. Green hair. Pale skin. Big smile. The things I'm curious about involve just how extreme they're going to make him, especially considering this sounds like a DC world where characters like King Shark and Solomon Grundy are running around. What's clear is that this is a more real-world take on the Joker, more of »

Frank Miller Returns to Batman With New Comic Miniseries

24 April 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Frank Miller is returning to the world of Batman. Miller, the comic writer and artist behind the seminal work The Dark Knight Returns, released in 1986, and its 21st century follow-up, Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again, will revisit the Batman series he created with The Dark Knight III: The Master Race.

The Dark Knight Returns 3: Frank Miller to Pen Conclusion to Comic Book Saga

24 April 2015 1:41 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Hot on the heels of the recent Batman v Superman trailer, DC Entertainment has announced the third and final installment of The Dark Knight Returns comic trilogy, The Dark Knight III: The Master Race. While a new installment of the saga of elderly Bruce Wayne was unexpected, it’s certainly no surprise that DC picked now as the time to reveal it, as the upcoming Zack Snyder film draws heavily from The Dark Knight Returns comic. Frank Miller will be joined on writing duties for the eight-issue comic book periodical by Brian Azzarello, who has written such comic book staples as 100 Bullets, Wonder Woman, and Batman. The Master Race will be published twice a month under the DC Comics imprint starting this fall. “Batman remains my favorite comic book hero and a sequel to Dark Knight is going to be daunting," said Miller, "but we’ll do our best.” [caption id="attachment_449523" align="alignright" width="320"] Image via DC Comics[/caption] »

Comics to Read Before You Die #20: Sin City

24 April 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the latest edition of Comics to Read Before You Die, Jessie Robertson looks at Sin City

“Walk down the right alley in Sin City….and you can find anything”

Marv’s words to describe this eponymous city, black to our eyes, white to our senses, as if every person or action there is colored this way. It’s anything but.

Why does Sin City work? Reading just this book, it’s a closed off story; it begins and ends with one main character, one single goal, one succinct story to tell. The writing works here because we’re coming into Sin City blind; the pages paint over top a blank canvas of a world we know nothing about, but quickly we’re able to connect the pieces together and discover this isn’t a very nice place. Killings, cannibalism, torture; if Sin City itself, as a story, is indicative »

Frank Miller returning to DC Comics to pen mini-series The Dark Knight III

24 April 2015 10:06 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

With all the comparisons being made between Frank Miller's classic comic The Dark Knight Returns and Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, it makes sense that DC would want to capitalize as much as they could on the classic comics in their library. So, it comes at the perfect time that Frank Miller is returning to finish the tale he started with The Dark Knight III: The Master Race.

Our Best Look Yet At Ben Affleck's Batsuit

21 April 2015 6:04 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The Internet's gone a bit Batman v Superman crazy over the last few days, ever since the super serious, audience dividing first trailer debuted on Friday, and Zack Snyder's gotten in on the act, tweeting a picture of the new Batsuit Ben Affleck will be stepping into. Thanks to everyone that turned out for the #MondayBvSSpecialIMAXEvent screenings tonight! #BatmanvSuperman pic.twitter.com/52KvKy1lUi — ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) April 21, 2015 It's all a bit Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns (just like the rest of the movie then), but it's not the Batsuit we all want to see. No, what we want is the armoured version he dons for a spot of Kryptonian fighting. Hopefully that will come soon. Released: March 26th 2016 »

Daredevil episode 11 viewing notes: The Path Of The Righteous

21 April 2015 12:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Daredevil's episode 11 cliffhanger makes us glad for Netflix. Who could wait a week to see what happens next?

With the whole series of Daredevil now available on Netflix, the race is on to reach the ending before someone spoils it for you. But that presents us with a problem. How do we approach reviews? It's not much use speculating about the future of the series when it's available at a moment's notice, but watching the whole thing in one go for a single review is impractical for anyone with a day job and personal relationships to maintain – to say nothing of how difficult it is to critically appraise 12 hours of television if you don't savour the instalments properly.

That's why, instead of traditional reviews, we're trying something new. An episode-by-episode unpicking of the show, looking at its techniques, characters and use of the source material. Call them annotations, call them show notes, »

The Surprisingly Prolific Comic Book Actors

20 April 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).

Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

Why the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer is so anti-Superman

20 April 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Garcia on why the new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is so anti-Superman

Over the weekend, the first official trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice leaked and was then officially released, a few days earlier than its scheduled IMAX premiere. Like most of the things to come out of the Warner Bros. and DC camp of superhero filmmaking, the trailer was met with both excitement and controversy, thanks largely to its dark color palette, tone, and anti-Superman sentiment.

The tone and color palette aside, I think the important thing worth talking about here is how the teaser portrays Superman. Many felt that the video wrongly portrayed the Man of Steel not as the heroic figure we know and love, but as a menacing, “evil” Superman. They aren’t wrong. In fact, that was the entire point.

World on fire: 'Daredevil' season 1 in review

20 April 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I finished watching "Daredevil" earlier today, and while my overall opinion hasn't changed that much from my initial review, I have a few additional thoughts on the season as a whole, coming up just as soon as I misspell Chanukah... In that earlier review, I noted an appreciation for the way that Steven DeKnight, Drew Goddard and company constructed each of the first five episodes to feel a bit different from the one before it. That sense of variation wasn't quite as strong in the remaining eight — or, rather, the overall "Daredevil" structure became more obvious given time, as each hour tried pairing off a different set of characters (Matt and Foggy, Matt and Stick, Karen and Ben) for some character-building, with one or two fight scenes to spice things up. That's not really a complaint, because I liked these characters a lot — "Daredevil" works as well as it does »

'Suicide Squad': Leto Reveals Full Joker Transformation?

20 April 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, a new photo arrived that showed off more of Jared Leto's slow transformation into the Joker for Suicide Squad. For fans, it has been an arduous process, and the actor has shared every step of the way. From his hair getting cut, to his hair being dyed green, to previewing the voice on stage during a live performance with 30 Seconds to Mars...We've seen it all. Now, a new photo has arrived which purports to show Jared Leto showing off his final Joker look. We see him in full make-up and costume. Only problem is, it's a very sneak paparazzi photo...And it definitely could be fake. Especially with all the great Jared Leto fan art that is currently out there. If this is indeed real, maybe will get an official image by the end of the day?

While Suicide Squad is currently being shot in Vancouver, »
