Walk down the wrong alleyway in Gotham City and you're in for a nasty shock. Nobody has found this out more frequently (or violently) than Thomas and Martha Wayne, the most murdered people in all of film and television history apart from Sean Bean.
This event proves to be a formative moment in the life of a young Bruce Wayne, the turning point that spurs him on to a life of fighting crime as a masked vigilante.
The first big screen depiction of the Waynes' death happened in Tim Burton's 1989 blockbuster. Here there's a twist in the tale as it's not Joe Chill but Jack Napier (later reborn as The Joker) who ambushes the millionaires.
This week: We drag our sorry ass back to Sin City, order up more Jump Street, and reluctantly head Into the Storm. ► After a certain amount of time, some sequels fall into .why bother?. Had Sin City: A Dame To Kill For come out a few years after the classic original, it would have had a much better fate. But nine years? What was original and cutting edge the first time around felt a bit moldy, with Frank Miller adapting some of his »

Spoilers: This article contains details on Batman v Superman that some readers may wish to avoid.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will feature an iconic scene from the Dark Knight's origins.
During filming in Chicago last week, Zack Snyder's superhero blockbuster recreated the moment when Bruce Wayne witnessed his parents being murdered after an alleyway mugging.
The scene first played out in the November 1939 issue of Detective Comics, with Joe Chill identified as the killer.
Subsequent films, TV shows, comics and video games have replayed the murder, although Tim Burton's 1989 Batman changed the killer from Chill to Jack Nicholson's Jack Napier, who eventually became The Joker.

What do you think about the photographs? Personally, I'm pleased to see that we are finally getting a origin that more closely resembles some sort of source material. But it's not just any source material, it's Frank Miller's famous gamechanger The Dark Knight Returns. Are you looking forward to this extremely respectful representation of Batman? Leave your thoughts in the comments below and let us know. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Jason Momoa, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Henry Cavill, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Ray Fisher, and Laurence Fishburne. The film, written by Chris Terrio from David S. Goyer's screenplay, and directed by Zack Snyder, arrives in theaters March 25, 2016. »
When Steven Spielberg's Jaws smashed box office records in 1975 it ushered in a new era for the Hollywood blockbuster. The term, coined some years earlier for epics such as The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur, came to represent something more than just financial success after Spielberg's Great White tore through Amity Island. Usually released at the height of summer, this new breed of film had to have scope, scale and deliver on entertainment value. Go big or go home. The blockbuster now became a genre unto itself.
Tim Burton's first Batman movie didn't invent the blockbuster, but it left an indelible mark on cinema when it arrived on a wave of hype in June 1989. The film, like many of today's tentpoles (films designed to support a studio's entire slate), was based on an existing intellectual property and thus had an inbuilt audience primed to fork out money for cinema tickets. »
Eyewitness reports have revealed some new plot details from Batman v Superman, namely that the new film will recreate the famous scene in which Thomas and Martha Wayne are shot dead. Zack Snyder has apparently drawn heavily from the Frank Miller comic-book The Dark Knight Returns, in which the Waynes are murdered after a visit to the cinema to watch Zorro, a known inspiration for the character. It also seems that Snyder filmed the entire sequence using IMAX cameras, which suggests the technology will be used liberally throughout the...

Zeb Larson reviews The Bigger Bang #1…
The Big Bang created all life as we know it. The Bigger Bang creates just one: a being named Cosmos. Is he a destroyer? A hero? A god? All he knows is that he’s completely alone in what was our universe… so he seeks out another where he’ll try to atone for the sins of his mysterious creation. From the inventive minds of D.J. Kirkbride (Amelia Cole, Never Ending) and Vassilis Gogtzilas (Augusta Wind) comes a sprawling space-epic of multi-dimensional proportions.
Written by D.J. Kirkbride and illustrated by Vassilis Gogtzilas, The Bigger Bang (no relation to the Rolling Stones album A Bigger Bang) is a story about a superhero created after a Big Bang-event. Burdened by the knowledge that billions of deaths were part of his death, he decides to become a hero in a different multiverse. At least in this issue, »

It’s no secret that comic book fans are some of the most diehard, detail-addicted aficionados of any creative artform. So, in this day and age of practically zero secrecy surrounding movie shoots, why the persistence by said fans in spoiling Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice?
Now, granted, there’s a hefty bunch of interested parties who have no inclination whatsoever in capturing shaky hand-held footage of a film shoot that they can post online to boost their social (network) status. However, there are an even more determined few whose sole mission this year has been to snag a ton of photos and videos from Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero caper. Many of which are guaranteed to spoil a significant chunk of the film, including this latest batch of media to hit the web.
Let’s take this massive spoiler straight from the source; a Chicagoan who »

If you don't want to know which iconic moment from the DC comic books was filmed yesterday on the Chicago set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice using IMAX cameras, stop reading now! The rest of this story does contain spoilers...
Last month, photos from the Michigan set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice showed off the Wayne Family mausoleum, located at the Orion Oaks County Park in Lake Orion, Michigan. There, a number of vintage cars were spotted, and it was believed to be a flashback to Bruce Wayne's parents' funeral. Ben Affleck was later spotted on a Smallville funeral set, so it's possible that this modern day moment in the film triggers a flashback to the death of Bruce's mom and dad.
New photos from the Chicago set surfaced yesterday revealing an iconic Gotham location, showing off the movie theater where Bruce's parents are murdered. These »

Benedict Cumberbatch is currently the actor in negotiations for Marvel's Doctor Strange, and, as of right now, we are just waiting for the confirmation. Before he entered discussions though, Joaquin Phoenix was the man they were looking to cast in the role.
During an interview with Playboy magazine, the three-time Oscar-nominated actor kind of addressed the discussions he was having with Marvel about the role.
"I can't talk about it. I’ve met on all sorts of movies throughout the years. What seems appealing about some of them is the idea of pushing myself in a way that’s out of my comfort zone. But really, it’s what I’m always looking for—good characters, big ideas and a passionate filmmaker. If those things line up with any kind of movie, I have interest in it."
Obviously those things didn't line up for him for Doctor Strange, »

In the past couple of weeks, we've seen a number of photos that reveal The Wayne family mausoleum, located in Orion Oaks County Park in Lake Orion, Michigan. Now, with filming taking place in Chicago, we get to see a second, equally important landmark, as the theater outside of which Bruce Wayne's parents gets shot is revealed in full.

While Benedict Cumberbatch still hasn't been officially confirmed to play Marvel's Doctor Strange, the actor entered final negotiations for the role last month. Before those negotiations took place, the studio was in talks with Joaquin Phoenix for quite some time. Phoenix officially passed on playing the Sorcerer Supreme in October. During a wide-ranging interview with Playboy, the actor briefly touched upon being in contention for this coveted Marvel role..

Eva Green has played a couple of strong female characters in two Frank Miller adaptations this year, and she was easily the highlight of both. However, the majority agree that she should be looking for better movies, especially when you consider her impressive work in Penny Dreadful! Talking to the Evening Standard recently, she said: "There are simply not enough good roles for women and for the last 20 years it has been so male-dominated and continues to be so," adding that television is helping to change that. With any luck we'll see her in a Marvel or DC Comics movie before long, but for now, enjoy this photoshoot featuring Green for the 2015 Campari calendar. »
Daredevil series showrunner Steven DeKnight took to Twitter recently to answer fan questions regarding the highly anticipated Marvel Netflix series. During New York City Comic-Con we got our first look at the series, along with some story details. But now we've got some new information that includes which character we won't see in the series, what the tone is like, and the inspiration behind the story development of the show. Here are many of the questions and answers from his little Twitter frenzy.
No one. Rt @cameronstear: Who's going to be playing Bullseye in the Marvel Netflix Daredevil? Please reply or give me a hint Steven?

This week's Dancing With The Stars was all about dynamic duos! From Bonnie and Clyde to Batman and Robin, the stars and their pro partners brought famous couples to life through dance, and it was one of the most enjoyable shows of the season so far.
Not only were the couples dressed up as famous duos, but it was revealed that there would also be a head-to-head dance off, pairing each couple against another in a series of three impromptu performances that could earn them extra points. However, the highest-scoring couple of the night would be totally safe from elimination, and wouldn't have to compete in the dance-off. The excitement was brewing right off the bat.
It was a fun »
We know from the first official photo of Daredevil that Matt Murdock will wear a very early ninja-like black suit (similar to the one seen in Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s Man Without Fear) in the Netflix series, but whether or not he'll done the classic red costume seen above isn't quite so clear. While we don't get a definite answer here, it does sound as if it will turn up sooner rather than later. However, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the classic red suit doesn't make an appearance to well past the halfway point, and with any luck, we may even get to see the yellow version first! DeKnight is a must-follow on Twitter, but be sure to also stay tuned to Cbm for more on Daredevil! Can't say. Must watch. But Rt @RuhailAli: Are you allowed to tell us whether or not the iconic »
It sounds like Daredevil might just end up wearing that black costume from Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s Man Without Fear for the majority of the first season of his Netflix series based on new filming details. According to DNAinfo, popular dive bar Turkey's Nest Tavern was recently transformed into "Josie's Hell's Kitchen" and is a location from the comic books where ol' Hornhead visits when trying to get information out of the criminal underworld. Fight scenes have also been shot, with one featuring "Daredevil in black uniformed costume beats up guys to get information" and another with him in the same outfit beating up a "Junkie drug abuser". Filming notices also reveal that a scene where a biker pushes Daredevil into eight motorcycles was shot. Specific locations for each of these can be found by clicking the link below. On October 25th, filming took place in a »
