Like most animated shows, the Bob’s Burgers cast reads like an all-star list from other tv shows or well-known comedy troupes. Whether it’s starring cast, recurring regular, or one-time guest star, there are plenty of cast reunions taking place on the best show on TV about a restaurant – here are but a few of the crossovers we uncovered. Parks and Recreation – Aziz Ansari (Darryl), Ben Schwartz (Josh), Megan Mullaly (Gayle), H. Jon Benjamin (Bob, various) If you’re doubting the influence of Parks and Recreation on American culture, look no further than the Bob’s Burgers cast (and Guardians of the Galaxy, of course – Chris Pratt’s life will never be the same), which has employed a number of Parks and Rec alums for recurring roles on Fox’s best animated show – or in H. Jon Benjamin’s case, the starring role on the show. Mr. Show with Bob and David »

Robin - Dick Grayson Cosplayer: Jennifer Van Damsel Photographers: Mineralblu Photography, Alan Tijerina Photography, Ian Aberle & Cayden Vierra Cosplay Richard "Dick" Grayson is a member of the Batman Family who has been a superhero most of his life and held several aliases. His parents were the Flying Graysons, acrobats performing with him alongside in the traveling Haly's Circus. They were tragically murdered by a mobster in Gotham City named Tony Zucco, and millionaire Bruce Wayne adopted him as his legal ward at a very young age. Grayson went through extensive training in martial arts and crimefighting to become the original Robin, Batman's sidekick. Many years later when he had outgrown the position, he took the name and costume of Nightwing. Jason Todd was his successor, followed by Tim Drake. As an adult he becomes Batman to replace Bruce Wayne during Battle for the Cowl, alongside Damian »
Death of Wolverine: Deadpool and Wolverine #1
Written by Gerry Duggan
Art by Scott Kolins
Colors by Veronica Gandini
Published by Marvel Comics
If you were a fan of how Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn balanced the comedy of a Weapon Plus reunion between Deadpool, Wolverine, and Captain America with real character growth for Deadpool in “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly”, Deadpool and Captain America will be a treat to read. Duggan takes Deadpool seriously as a character while peppering his script with puns, pop culture gags, and silly, but chuckle worthy jokes about Wolverine’s grooming. Scott Kolins’ figures aren’t as sharp and well-defined as Declan Shalvey’s in “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly”, but he is skilled panel architect, who can turn a mundane elevator ride into an opportunity for humor and character reflection. Kolins adds layers to the comedy with sight gags and slapstick, »

(Cbr) You may not know The Birthday Boys, but you’ll definitely recognize quite a few of the faces on "The Birthday Boys," the sketch comedy group’s TV show that returns for a second season tonight at 11:30 on IFC. The Birthday Boys — Jefferson Dutton, Dave Ferguson, Mike Hanford, Tim Kalpakis, Matt Kowalick, Mike Mitchell and Chris VanArtsdalen — started as a stage show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles, and caught plenty of high-profile attention over the years; notably Bob Odernkirk and Ben Stiller (who have a shared history on sketch comedy with Fox’s short-lived but fondly remembered 1992 series The Ben Stiller Show). Odenkirk and Stiller serve as executive producers on "The Birthday Boys" TV show, with Odenkirk appearing frequently in the show’s first season. This year, though Odenkirk retains a presence on "The Birthday Boys," his schedule (including filming "Breaking Bad" spinoff "Better »

So on Monday, I watched the Gotham series premiere with about 8 million of my friends. I started writing a column about the show and what it says (accidentally and/or purposefully) about the role of Batman in pop culture right now. But working on that column got me thinking more generally about Batman: A character who has been around for 75 years, a figure in my cultural consciousness since before my memory begins. The next thing I knew, I was making a list of my favorite Batman things–the movies, the TV shows, the vividly recalled comic book story arcs and standalone issues, »

It may have been delayed until 2015, but in the latest issue of GamesTM there is plenty of new information regarding Rocksteady’s third and final entry in their Arkham series of Batman games. In this released section of the article lead character artist Albert Feliu offers up insight into Rocksteady’s titular villain, the Arkham Knight. We’ve included the first three, and you can head over to GamesTM to check out the rest.
“The Arkham Knight is one of the main centrepiece villains for our game. He’s like a dark reflection of Batman who commands a military force that’s taken control of Gotham City. He seems to know everything about the Batman: his tactics, his gadgets and his weaknesses. He has used this knowledge to create an identity that mocks the Dark Knight and creates a striking image on the battlefield that inspires his army and terrifies his enemies. »

On August 24th, a beautiful Sunday evening, a line formed outside of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The crowd was full of diverse characters, but we all had one thing in common: we have a strong love of horror, and music. So there I was, about to enter Johnny Ramones 10th Anniversary Tribute, and I was ready to enjoy a memorable experience.
For those who are not familiar with the venue, it is actually a cemetery. It is also the final resting place of many celebrities, including Johnny Ramone himself. Often there are movie screenings there, and you are allowed to view the film picnic style, with blankets, chairs, and coolers. In other words, it’s a really cool way to watch a movie.
Soon after everyone entered the premises, many claimed seats on the lawn, and others ventured into the mausoleum to observe some very awesome horror goodies from the »
With nearly 3,000 fans in attendance, Dread Central hit this past Sunday’s 10th Annual Johnny Ramone Tribute at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, CA, and we got an eye and earful. Read on for our report, photo gallery, and a video clip from the event.
The show was hosted by musician/filmmaker Rob Zombie and his band, who played a blistering five-song set of Ramones tunes set inside the facility’s Masonic Temple, which included "Blitzkrieg Bop," "Rock 'n' Roll High School," "Beat on the Brat," "Lobotomy," and Motörhead's tribute song to the same, "R.A.M.O.N.E.S."
With the show simulcast on the cemetery’s mausoleum wall to the throng of music fans who picnicked on the grass outside, Zombie’s set was followed by a jam session made up of guitarist Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses, singer Billy Idol, »

Tired of waiting for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to hit the big screen? March 2016 is still a long way off, but Los Angeles based production company Lasrever is hoping to make that slog a little less agonizing. They have just announced a crowd funding campaign through IndieGoGo (clickHere) for their upcoming Dark Knight inspired web series Shadow War. The have also released the first trailer, which pits Catwoman against Batman on a rooftop, and their sexual tension has never been more blatant. Check out this first footage from Shadow War
Here is Lasrever's mission statement:

Disclaimer: Before we get started, if you haven’t read The Killing Joke, stop reading this and run down to your local comic shop and pick it up. You won’t be disappointed. Ok, all caught up? If not *Spoilers* for a 26 year old book…
Ever since it’s release in 1988, people have been debating the end of The Killing Joke.Some people- including famed Batman scribe Grant Morrison – believe that Batman finally breaks down and kills the Joker. Others say no, Batman doesn’t kill – despite many instances to the contrary throughout Batman’s 75yrs- and that for him to do so would be to break the promise he made to Commissioner Gordon;a promise that he would bring the Joker in “By the book”. No matter which side is right, one thing is for sure: The last nine panels of The Killing Joke have been scrutinized, analyzed and »

Recently, the first picture of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne in Warner Bros.’ Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice hit the web, showing the character in front of a wrecked Wayne Financial building in Metropolis (likely a casualty of Supes’ massive brawl with General Zod in Man of Steel):

Surprisingly, Wayne only has small amounts of grey in his hair – based on plot information that this film would feature a Batman towards the end of his life, I had expected a few more signs of old age. Of course, Wayne does have his reputation as a playboy to protect – so perhaps he makes a conscious effort to look younger in public. Badass Digest’s Devin Faraci recently revealed some details about the »

Apart from a handful of official images and a brief teaser which was shown exclusively to those at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, we don’t really know an awful lot about Batman V Superman.
Something which has been mentioned a number of times though is the fact that Ben Afleck’s Batman will be older and far more battle hardened than previous big screen versions of the Caped Crusader. The Gone Girl star has been spotted on set with grey temples, and new plot details shed some light on his Batman.
A new report claims that Batman has been operating for close to thirty years in Dawn of Justice, meaning that Bruce Wayne will likely be in his 50s. This version of Batman is an urban legend and “a creature of the night”, and no one has ever taken his picture. However, he’s still been very active as a superhero! »

Batman: Arkham Knight
Jason Todd himself, The Red Hood, is set to serve as a playable character in the upcoming "Batman: Arkham Knight" in missions exclusive to Us gamers who preorder at Gamestop.
The missions will be part of an exclusive story mode, alongside the already announced story missions for Harley Quinn. As with all Arkham characters, he's getting a makeover which in this case is more akin to his New 52 look. [Source: ]
Journey & The Unfinished Swan
A list of playable titles at Gamescom 2014 in Germany has allegedly confirmed that two of the most acclaimed PS3 indie games are coming to the Playstation 4 later this year - "Journey" and "The Unfinished Swan". If so they will likely be updated to run at 1080p/60fps. [Source: Segment Next]

In news that is sure to anger those against retailer specific Dlc, GameStop announced today that they will be offering an exclusive batch of story mode Dlc to those who pre-order Batman: Arkham Knight.
Dubbed the “Red Hood Story Pack,” this Dlc will place gamers into the shoes of the titular violent vigilante. This pack joins the previously announced “Harley Quinn Story Pack” Dlc, which will also be available to those who pre-order Batman: Arkham Knight from GameStop.
Although the practice of retailer specific Dlc has never been a fan favorite, this is not the first time that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has offered exclusive content for their Batman titles. Batman: Arkham City offered a variety of different costumes for Bruce Wayne to don, as well as challenge maps for both The Joker and Robin. Batman: Arkham Origins featured more of the same, as challenge maps centering on »

Gamestop has now officially (it leaked yesterday) announced the new preorder incentive for Arkham Knight, and it contains the Robin who just wouldn't go away (despite a phone vote to make him do so), Jason Todd, otherwise known as the Red Hood. It will be a story pack and joins the already announced Harley Quinn story pack.
With these two announcements, Rocksteady has already addressed my main criticism of Arkham City, which was that there wasn't enough additional story content after launch, as most of their Dlc revolved around extra costumes and challenge maps. Those are nice, don't get me wrong, but Rocksteady spins a great yarn, so any opportunity to get more of that is welcome.
While they haven't actually said the person under the hood is Jason Todd, there is a part of me that hopes they end up going that route, only so I can see what »

A second piece of Dlc content has been announced for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight, which will allow you to play as the Red Hood.
Gamestop have announced that pre-orders of the game will come with the Dlc, in addition to the already announced Harley Quinn extras.
Over the years several characters have taken on the mantle of Red Hood. First up was a gang of criminals who passed the hood onto unsuspecting patsies, one of which went on to become The Joker. In later stories a revived Jason Todd (Robin II, killed by The Joker) beats his murderer to a pulp and take on the Red Hood identity. From the image provided it would seem Rocksteady have taken this route. Nightwing (Dick Grayson aka Robin 1) already exists in the Arkham world, as does Tim Drake (Robin 3 in the comics).
I wonder what a dual wielding ex-Robin will be like to play? »

In four Marvel vs DC clashes on Super Power Beat Down, DC currently holds a 3 to 1 advantage. Superman took down Thor, Nightwing got the best of Gambit and Batman triumphed over Deadpool. Marvel's lone win was Wolverine's lethal victory over Batman. Can Frank Castle secure one more Marvel victory over former Robin, Jason Todd? Spbd is directed by filmmaker Aaron Shoenke, who is best known for his independent Batman-genre fan films. The episode stars Kevin Porter (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, The Chronicles of Curtis Tucker) as Punisher and Rich Manly as Red Hood. Next up for Bat in the Sun's Spbd is Kick-Ass vs Tmnt's Casey Jones and then Green Ranger vs Street Fighter's Ryu. Original Green Ranger Jason David Frank returns to play the former evil Power Ranger turned good guy. »
