Batman Will Fight These 3 Villains in Suicide Squad

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the worst-kept secrets regarding Warner Bros.' Suicide Squad is the involvement of Ben Affleck's Batman. The actor was spotted on the Toronto set while production was under way, both in and out of his Batman costume, with video revealing scenes where the Dark Knight is clinging to the top of The Joker's (Jared Leto) sports car. Warner Bros. even revealed a tiny glimpse of this scene in the first trailer, so while we know for sure that Batman shows up in Suicide Squad, little else has been confirmed about his appearance. Today, we have a report that reveals which specific villains Batman interacts with in the movie. Naturally, there will be Spoilers ahead, so read on at your own risk.

Batman-News has details on three different scenes featuring Batman, claiming that he won't actually battle this entire assembly of bad guys. But he does cross paths »

Batman Interacts With Which "Squad" Members?

14 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following his starring role in Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," Ben Affleck's take on Batman takes a backseat in the upcoming David Ayer "Suicide Squad" film - the character set to have a supporting part in the film of which the specifics are unknown.

We do know he participates in a car chase sequence with the Joker (Jared Leto) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), there's a scene of him diving into the ocean, and that by the time the events of 'Squad' roles around he's had a history with pretty much all the major villains featured - essentially being the one that sent them all to prison.

Now, a new report at Batman News indicates that we'll only see him interact with Deadshot, Harley Quinn and The Joker during the actual story. The site says he'll share two scenes with Deadshot, one of which is »

17 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Studio tour’s official Facebook page removes video that appears to confirm Zack Snyder drew on the controversial graphic novel A Death in the Family for Dawn of Justice

It was one of the most shocking scenes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a suit belonging to a dead Robin daubed with The Joker’s graffiti: “Ha ha! Joke’s on you Batman!” Now a guide on the Warner Bros studio tour in Hollywood has apparently confirmed the demise of the caped crusader’s sidekick – Jason Todd version – at the hands of the clown prince of Gotham.

Confirmed: The Identity of The Dead Robin In 'Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice'

18 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice was something of a techno remix of classic DC Comics storylines. Zack Snyder provided the main beat, but he worked in samples of several beloved classics to spice things up. In there, you had the obvious two, which were The Dark Knight Returns and The Death Of Superman, but there was also a reference to Batman: A Death In The Family. 

Seen briefly in the film was this glimpse of the costume of one of Batman's former Robins. As those of us who follow the books know, several people have taken on the mantle of Robin, and there was one- in particular- that famously bit the dust. Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice didn't give us much to work with, aside from Bruce Wayne glancing at the suit, and a split-second of time to read what appears to be The Joker's vandalism of it. »

Jason Todd Has Finally Been Confirmed As Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’s Robin

22 May 2016 4:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was a couple of years ago now that some Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice rumours pointed to Robin’s costume being on display in the Batcave, and since then and the moment that the defaced suit was revealed in trailers for the movie, fans have widely assumed that it surely belongs to Jason Todd, the Robin murdered by The Joker.

However, if Zack Snyder was willing to take Superman’s pal Jimmy Olsen and turn the photographer into a CIA agent who gets shot in the head, there’s every chance that the suit could have belonged to one of the other heroes to have held the mantle of the Boy Wonder (Dick Grayson, for example). That would have obviously upset some people, but those involved with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice have remained coy, refusing to reveal whether or not that suit really does belong to Jason. »

Batman v Superman Dead Robin Identity Confirmed

22 May 2016 3:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice successfully launched Warner Bros.' DC Comics Extended Universe when it hit theaters this past March, which will continue this summer with Suicide Squad, arriving August 5. Even before the March release, one of the trailers for Batman v Superman revealed the costume worn by Batman (Ben Affleck)'s former sidekick, Robin, although it was never confirmed which of the DC Comics characters was fighting crime alongside Batman. Today we finally have our answer, from the most unlikely of places, a Warner Bros. studio tour.

The official Facebook page for Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood posted a new video last week, featuring a sneak peek at DC Universe: The Exhibit! The tour guide revealed that all of the items in this exhibit are from the actual movies, revealing a number of costumes from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before coming to the iconic Robin suit, »

The Secret Identity Of Batman v Superman's Robin Has Finally Been 100% Officially Confirmed

21 May 2016 7:27 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Common sense (and the comic books) tell us that the Robin who was murdered by The Joker in the DC Films Universe is Jason Todd, but with Zack Snyder...well, you never know! There have been many hints about this Boy Wonder being Jason in the past of course, but no one involved with the movie in any sort of official capacity has come out and directly stated that it's Jason. Well, until now that is.  In the following video from Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood (via Batman-News), the tour guide reveals: "This was one of the big things from Batman v Superman, right across this way. The Jason Todd Robin suit. Spray painted on the front ‘Ha ha. The joke’s on you Batman.'" So, that's that then! This is hardly a surprise, but let's be honest, it's nice knowing for sure that Dick Grayson isn't dead.  But he The Joker? »

Why Maria Bamford's 'Lady Dynamite' is 2016's Must-See TV Show

19 May 2016 10:33 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Conventional wisdom would have it that crippling mental illness isn't a good subject for a sitcom. But there's nothing conventional about Maria Bamford's brand of comedy. Fans of her stand-up and such through-the-rabbit hole projects like 2012's Maria Bamford: The Special Special Special —  in which the 45-year-old comedian performs a taped set for just her parents in their living room — know that she isn't afraid to tap into very dark, very personal places in her work. So when Bamford announced she was developing a sitcom for Netflix that »

Why Clayface is the perfect villain for Ben Affleck’s Batman film

2 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Garcia on why Clayface could be the perfect villain to feature in Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie…

Of any rogues gallery across the pages of comics, none is perhaps more famous and iconic than Batman’s. Frequent Arkham Asylum inmates like the Joker, Two-Face, the Riddler, Catwoman, the Penguin, Mr. Freeze, and even relative newcomers like Harley Quinn have had a substantial impact on pop and geek culture.

As a result, the big names on the rogues list keep popping up in new Batman adaptations. The Joker himself has been given the live action treatment five times (counting Gotham and the upcoming Suicide Squad film), and has been the focus of countless video games and animated adaptations. Catwoman has appeared across film and TV five times, and was even the focus of her own solo film starring Halle Berry (though that particular version of the character bears little resemblance to the source material, »

Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns to Make the Definitive 'Batman' Film

1 May 2016 6:41 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Birth.Movies.Death reports that director/actor Ben Affleck and DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns are currently working on the script for a solo Batman movie which Affleck will direct and star as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The website says that Affleck and Johns want to make the “definitive Batman movie” by including a vast amount of notable Batman villains. Previous reports stated that the next Batman would adapt the “Under the Red Hood” storyline in which the second Robin, Jason Todd, is resurrected and takes the mantle of the ‘Red Hood’ to seek revenge against the Joker who is responsible for his death all while clashing with Batman.

The plan for Affleck’s Batman film is:

"It's going to be crammed with Bat villains, which means that just about every major bad guy you've ever wanted to see in a movie will be in this movie. According to my sources Affleck and Geoff Johns, »

Ben Affleck’s The Batman Will Be “Crammed With Villains”

1 May 2016 4:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fans might not have taken too kindly to Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, but if there’s one thing that they all agreed on, it’s that Ben Affleck’s take on The Caped Crusader was a definite highlight of the film. So, it’s reassuring then to hear that the actor has complete creative control over the character’s upcoming solo effort, which is currently titled The Batman.

Rumors in the past have pointed towards the film adapting the famous “Under the Red Hood” story arc, which has Jason Todd return to Gotham City as a vengeful villain who’s after both Batman and The Joker. While fans would no doubt love to see that story on the big screen, Birth.Movies.Death is reporting that due to the similarities between “Red Hood” and Captain America: Civil War, DC isn’t going down that route for the film anymore. »

Rumor: The Batman Unlikely To Adapt "Under The Red Hood" But We Will See Lots Of Other Villains

1 May 2016 10:33 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Past rumours have pointed to The Batman (that's still not the official title, but really should be) being an adaptation of "Under the Red Hood", a story which saw Jason Todd return to Gotham City as a Punisher like vigilante intent on bringing down both the Dark Knight and The Joker. However, with the similarities that storyline has to Marvel's whole Bucky/The Winter Soldier situation and the fact that it's already been adapted in both an animated movie and video game, could the big screen be that tale's next destination? After all, Batman v Superman did seem to hint at that being the case!  Well, Birth.Movies.Death reports that "Under the Red Hood" isn't the plan, but we are going to see plenty of the other members of Batman's rogues gallery in the movie which is being co-written and directed by Ben Affleck. In fact, "It's going to be crammed with Bat villains, »

Affleck Has Full Creative Control On "Batman"?

30 April 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It has been a busy day or two of rumors regarding the directors of the various upcoming films that are a part of Warner Bros. Pictures' burgeoning DC Extended Universe.

First there was George Miller rumored to be under consideration for "Green Lantern Corps," then Seth Graheme-Smith dropped out of "The Flash," and now there's talk James Wan is having second thoughts about "Aquaman".

There's still more to come as well it seems as Heroic Insider today reports that DC Entertainment Cco Geoff Johns and Oscar winner Ben Affleck are set to have "complete creative control" over the upcoming solo "Batman" film in the works which Affleck will star in and direct.

This essentially suggests the film's producers Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Charles Roven will have no serious oversight regarding the film's content. The site adds that even Johns is more of a consultant on the piece, with Affleck »

13 Superhero Movies Perfect for Justin Bieber

30 April 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

On the back side of the Funky Bunch, we never imagined that Marky Mark would emerge as Mark Wahlberg, top marquee draw and an Oscar nominee. While DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince was a fun and popular pop act of the 80s, no one living through 1988 ever thought, "That Will Smith sure has box office gold written all over him!" Cut to thirty years later, and he too is a multiple Oscar nominee and one of today's top leading men. While Justin Timberlake hasn't exactly set the big screen ablaze, he's become a beloved institution amongst the hipster marketplace, as well as a sought out persona amongst all other demographics who love his comedy on Saturday Night Live, bathe in his music, or applaud his various turns at dramatic acting. He's the closet thing we have to Frank Sinatra today.

What I'm trying to say is, there's hope for Justin Bieber. »

Potential Identity Of The Dead Robin in Batman V Superman Hinted At By Warner Bros.

29 April 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice might be over a month old now, but the movie is still generating some juicy secrets for those who enjoyed themselves at the superhero slugfest. The new rumor comes from an Instagram post, of all places, posted on Wednesday, April 27, that possibly hints to the identity of Robin in the DC Extended Universe.

Seen in a glimpse of a shot in the Batcave – with some Joker graffiti smeared across its chest – was a suit apparently worn by Batman’s trusty sidekick Robin. Because of this, many fans believe the implication is that Joker killed Robin in this iteration of the universe, but the exact identity of which Robin it was remained a mystery.

That is, until now (maybe). As Cbm points out, the comic arc “Batman: A Death in the Family,” features the Joker killing Jason Todd, the second version of Robin (the first »

Has WB Shrewdly Revealed Which Robin Died In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice?

29 April 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Part of the massive world-building in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a shot of an encased Robin suit in the Batcave.  Covered in graffiti and featuring a broken staff, it's heavily implied that the Joker killed this Robin.   In the comics, "Batman: A Death in the Family" is a story arc from Jim Starlin and Jim Aparo which featured the Joker killing the second Robin, Jason Todd.  It's unclear if the first Robin, Dick Grayson exists in the Dceu but WB may have given indication that the suit in Affleck's Batcave belongs to Todd.   The below image was posted to the official Batman v Superman instagram account on April 27.  In Death in the Family, the Joker killed Jason Todd on April 27.  Is this an extreme coincidence or a meta-message from WB to its longtime comic book fans?    "Twenty years in Gotham, how many good guys are left? »

'Batman v Superman': Dead Robin's Identity Officially Revealed?

28 April 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

While reaction to Batman v Superman was decidedly mixed, the film was full of Easter eggs and allusions to the comic book canon and mythos that a lot of fans appreciated. Not the least of these allusions was when Bruce Wayne looked upon a vandalized Robin suit in his Batcave before heading to Lex Luthor's gala event. The obvious implication with the suit is that one of the Robins was murdered in the past, and Bruce keeps the suit in his cave as some sort of twisted memento of his fallen comrade.

But one of the big questions from some fans is, "Which Robin is it?"

If you don't wish to be spoiled, look away now (though who knows if this will ever be revealed in a film, so look away at your own peril of never finding out). And yes, I understand this isn't really a spoiler, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. »

The Brutal Weapon Robin Originally Had In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

19 April 2016 12:39 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Batman was fighting crime alone during Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but years earlier, he had a partner. By now, we all know that Robin died in the line of duty in the DC Extended Universe, mirroring what happened to Jason Todd in the comics. Details are still scarce about what happened to the Boy Wonder, but a weapon he used when still active has been fully unveiled, and it’s much more brutal than we would have imagined him wielding. The “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice: Tech Manual” (via Digital Spy) shows that rather than the familiar bo-staff from the comics, Robin’s weapon originally had blades at the end, looking more like an axe or lance. Eventually, director Zack Snyder eventually decided to have the weapon damaged while on display. According to props master Doug Harlocker: That was Zack saying, ‘Look, »
