5 July 2015 5:45 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Destiny Could Have Potentially Been A Whole Lot Funnier, Had Bungie Used A Script Written By Arrested Development’s David Cross

3 July 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Remember the bad rap that both Bungie and Peter Dinklage were on the receiving end of when players were given the chance to play the Destiny beta last year? The whole bloody internet almost exploded with complaints that Dinklage’s voice sounded much too monotonous and disinterested. Bungie took the criticism on board and gave the actor’s vocal performance a bit of distortion – making him sound much more robotic – but it did little to remedy the situation.

Other than criticisms concerning Dinklage’s delivery of his lines, the other main qualm most had was how bland the actual character was. No personality, comedy or charisma – just boring.

According to an interview with IGN though, the character may have originally been a hell of a lot funnier than the one gamers the world over got tired of after a few hours. Arrested Development star, David Cross, originally wrote a script for the player’s companion, »

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ is a brilliant and frustrating finale for the series

29 June 2015 7:18 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Batman: Arkham Knight

Developed by Rocksteady Studios

Published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

PC, PS4 (reviewed), Xbox One

In 2009 Rocksteady achieved what many thought was impossible; they made a genuinely good Batman game. With Arkham Asylum they created a claustrophobic atmosphere, told an enjoyable story featuring many of the caped crusader’s most notorious villains, and crafted a battle system that has been aped by everything from Shadow of Mordor to Sleeping Dogs. It wasn’t a perfect game, suffering from copy-pasted boss encounters and a couple of narrative mis-steps, but it was strong enough to inspire confidence that one day we’d get a dark knight video game that would do justice to the long-running DC Comics superhero.

Six years later and Arkham Asylum remains the best game in the Arkham series. First sequel City improved on the original by adding more villains and an impressive array of side-quests, »

‘Batman: The 12 Cent Adventure’ is More of a Trailer than a Story

28 June 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Batman: The Twelve Cent Adventure #1 (2004)

Written by Devin Grayson

Penciled by Ramon Bachs

Inked by Raul Fernandez, Rodney Ramos

Colored by Steve Buccelato

Published by DC Comics

Since “Knightfall” in the early 90s where Batman’s back was broken by Bane and he was replaced by Azrael, the Batman family crossovers have turned Gotham City into a playground of violence, status quo shifts, and occasionally teamwork. Batman: The Twelve Cent Adventure #1 is the prelude to the yearlong “War Games” crossover, which involved the biggest gang war in Gotham history. The crossover showed that Batman didn’t just have to fight costumed supervillains, like the Joker and Scarecrow, but could also deal with the labyrinthine threat of organized crime. (Even if these crime lords have masked and/or metahuman bodyguards like Deadshot and Silver Monkey.) The Twelve Cent Adventure introduces the major crime players of Gotham in a manner that is »

Batman: Arkham Knight – Is Jason Todd Confirmed As The Villain?

1 June 2015 3:46 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rocksteady/Warner Bros.

Ever since fans found out the titular Arkham Knight wasn’t actually referring to Batman (and instead was a ‘brand new’ villain created by Rocksteady Studios to better him), they’ve been picking apart everything possible trying to find out who’s underneath the mask.

Theories range from the long-deceased Joker – who after biting the bullet in Arkham City has been fairly active post-mortem in the tie-in comics – to more ‘out there’ ideas like the Knight being an advanced A.I., Bruce’s (supposedly dead) father, a clone, or a figment of his imagination.

The latest development worth covering is the more up-close shot of Jason Todd (the Red Hood)’s action figure, where you can clearly draw some comparisons between the face armour of both his new suit, and that of the Knight.

For anyone not not up to date on their Bat-mythos, Todd was the »

The 13 Most Iconic Joker Moments

18 May 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Villains are everything to a story, and especially in the comic book medium, a hero is only as good as the villains that they thwart.  Batman has the most recognizable, most iconic, and overall best rogue’s gallery in all of comics.  From classics such as Two-Face, Catwoman, and the Riddler to relative newcomers like Bane, The Court of Owls, and Hush, all of these villains, and  are strongly ingrained in comic book lore to a degree unmatched by other comic book villains.  There are some heroes like Superman, Shazam, and the Hulk who have such a shallow crop of villains to draw from that it works against a creator’s ability to tell quality stories.  Batman doesn’t have this problem; in fact, one of the greatest comic book villains calls the Dark Knight his archenemy.

What makes the Joker such an exciting villain isn’t just his diabolical deeds, »

10 Times Batman Has “Died”

13 May 2015 8:42 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC Comics

If it looks like a superhero, acts like a superhero, and is resistant to death as a superhero? It’s probably a superhero. People like to argue that Batman isn’t technically a superhero, because of his lack of powers (they’re totally wrong about that, by the way). But seriously, outside of soap operas, what other stripe of fictional character comes back from the dead as often as superheroes? Apart from zombies.

Death is a particularly relative concept in superhero comics, with almost every major death that’s ever occurred in the genre eventually reversed. People used to joke that the only people who would ever stay dead in comics are Uncle Ben, Gwen Stacy and Bucky; currently we’re sort of at two out of three, and Peter Parker’s kindly relative is almost certainly due a gritty, mature readers reboot.

But death is also a »

Article: Man or Monster? A Brief History of Killer Croc

8 May 2015 10:01 AM, PDT | Legions of Gotham | See recent Legions of Gotham news »

 Batman has aquired a rather extensive rogues gallery over the past 76 years.   His rotating stable of villains includes everything from mass murderers, serial killers and thugs to the rejected, disfigured and often misunderstood.  Which of these categories, then, does a certain Mr. Waylon Jones, known more affectionately to fans as Killer Croc, belong in?   This character, though created over three decades ago, found his largest fanbase as a somewhat bumbling brute on Batman: The Animated Series and has appeared regularly in the comic books since that time, but how much do we as fans really know about the complex history of this character?   His inclusion in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, alongside fellow Bat-Rogue Harley Quinn, has generated a lot of buzz around his portrayl as a disfigured man, rather than a hulking mutated monster.  This being his very first appearance on the big screen, we thought this would be »

Is Batman In Suicide Squad? Batmobile Spotted On Set

5 May 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

The Batmobile has reportedly been spotted on the set of Suicide Squad, adding further fuel to the rumours Ben Affleck’s Batman will appear in the movie.

Affleck himself has already been sighted at the film’s studio in Toronto, and the rumours of the Batmobile, which come courtesy of Latino Review, would seemingly make the chances of a ‘Batfleck’ appearance in David Ayer’s film more likely.

Conversely, reports have also suggested that The Joker will appear in Batman V Superman by way of flashback, in a scene that shows him killing Jason Todd, better known as Robin. This will be what leads not only to him being in prison in Suicide Squad, but also give added reasoning for Batman’s appearance in the film.

The film isn’t released until August 2016, so any official confirmation of Affleck’s involvement will be some way off.

Knights of Badassdom (2013) review

Knights of Badassdom (2013)

Written by: Kevin Dreyfuss, Matt Wall

Directed by: Joe Lynch

Cast: Ryan Kwanten (Joe), Steve Zahn (Eric), Peter Dinklage (Hung), Margarita Levieva (Beth), Summer Glau (Gwen), Joshua Malina (Travis), Michael Gladis (King Diamond), W. Earl Brown (Randy), Brian Posehn (Gilberto), Douglas Tait (Abominog)

I’m pretty much going to watch any film called “Knights of Badassdom”. I just am, and probably if you are reading this, you would too. I’m absolutely astounded at how the social stereotypes are melding together little by little, and this film is definitely a testament to that. Remember being the weird kid and only having a handful of equally weird, but loyal friends. That definitely was me, and I couldn’t see it then, but I pretty much had it made.

Batman Facts: 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Dark Knight

1 May 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Happy Batman Day, everyone! Around the world, May 1st may mark a spring holiday, but here, it marks the first appearance of the Dark Knight, in Detective Comics No. 27, in 1939.

For the past 76 years, the Caped Crusader has been fighting Gotham City evildoers in comic books, movies, TV shows, and pretty much anywhere else you can shine a Bat-signal. Throughout the years, Bruce Wayne's alter ego has gone through many incarnations, not just in actors (from Adam West to Michael Keaton to Christian Bale to Ben Affleck, among the many), but also in character, from haunted avenger to squeaky-clean do-gooder to campy clown to kinky prowler to world-weary fighter. He's due for yet another change this week, with the releases of DC's Batman No. 40 -- in which Bruce Wayne and the Joker finally kill each other (or do they?) and a special issue of DC's Divergence, where an undisclosed character »
