Emily S. Whitten’s Grand Sdcc Adventure: Gotham Edition

30 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

(Editor’s Note: As noted in this space last Tuesday, for the next li’l bit we’ll be running Brand-new Emily S. Whitten columns on Tuesday mornings and on Saturday afternoons! This being Saturday afternoon – Eastern USA time – here we go!)

Batman is one of DC Comics’ greatest characters, and part of what makes Batman great is his supporting cast, his rogues gallery, and the whole mood and setting of Gotham, the city that surrounds him and, in part, defines him. I’ve always loved seeing portrayals of Gotham, both in print and on screen, so I’m definitely looking forward to the new TV show Gotham (premiering September 22). Not only is the show supposed to feature the city as a character, but it’s also going to be examining the origins and psychology behind many famous characters from the Bat-verse along the way. The show focuses on Jim »

Marc Alan Fishman: Looking For Comics, Found Nothing But Posters

30 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Ahoy, mates. You’ll forgive me (or not, I don’t know how easily you get ticked off) if my post this week is a bit less meaty than my norm. My excuse: Thursday morning, on the way to the top of my stairs – a box of magic monkey balls safely in tow – my cat decided he’d prefer to be under foot rather than elsewhere. I decided that kittycide didn’t suit me. So, my other other option at the time was to return down the same flight of stairs from whence I came. Unluckily for me, my shoulder (and the hard ground/basement door) stopped an otherwise elegant descent. By the end of the evening, I’d have one less arm at normal usage then I’m normally used to. So, here I sit, in mild agony, pitter-pattering away for your enjoyment. But I (as per my usual) digress. »

Fox Releases Four-Part Online Gotham Special

25 August 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

The jury is still out on whether Fox’s new serial drama, “Gotham,” is going to be a success or not. There’s a ton of lore and it’ll be difficult for all Batman fans to get on board with the revamping of famous characters’ life stories, such as changing Poison Ivy from Pamela Isley to a girl named Ivy Pepper. But whether or not you are excited to see this new look at Batman’s city before Batman, Fox is going to give “Gotham” its best possible shot at success. Fox is airing a four-part special online. The special, released Friday, gives a look at the mythology behind “Gotham” and its villains,  [ Read More ]

‘Gotham's’ 20-Minute Behind-the-Scenes Preview Will Whet Any Batman Fanatic's Appetite (Video)

23 August 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

DC Comics super-fans: Can't wait another month for the near-51 minute “Gotham” pilot? Perhaps the below embedded featurette will provide enough of a Batman prequel fix to carry you through to the Sept. 22 premiere. On Friday, Fox posted a 20-minute-plus behind-the-scenes “Gotham” video, featuring cast and crew interviews mixed in with episodic scenes and bonus features. See video: ‘Gotham’ Extended Trailer Features the Penguin, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and the Riddler Before They Were Famous In the video, show stars and creators praise the hiring choices, the special effects and seemingly everything else that brings the adapted DC Universe to life. »

Watch: 20-Minute Gotham Featurette Delves Deep into the Upcoming Origin Story Series

23 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards will be held this coming Monday, which means the 2014-15 TV season is fast approaching.  One of the new shows that many are curious about is Fox’s Gotham.  The series is essentially a Batman origin story without Batman, as it follows a young James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as he works to clean up the city of Gotham.  The show will introduce a gallery of classic Batman villains from The Penguin to The Riddler to Poison Ivy, and we even get a very young Catwoman.  I’m curious to see how this show can sustain itself if it’s mostly made up of teases and hints and in-jokes (again, Batman will not materialize), and a new 20-minute Gotham featurette offers a behind-the-scenes look at how showrunner Bruno Heller and the cast see this story unfolding.  The constant “wink-wink” nature could get old fast, so hopefully »

Extended UK Preview Released For ‘Gotham’

21 August 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Alongside the news that, surprisingly, Channel 5 will be showing the upcoming Gotham, we’ve got a brand new preview released to add to the already hyper-marketing for this anticipated series. Straight from Fox, another the Batman and DC villains origin story wasn’t something we knew we needed but early signs weren’t that bad, although I’m personally concerned over the style and vibe, plus the thought that it may become a little too soap-like.

Bruno Heller is the man behind the re-invention, and you’ll know him for The Mentalist and Rome, so there’s a good sign on the latter in terms of visuals and in the first with a touch of cleverness. Gotham follows James Gordon and his rise in the corrupt city that’s on the edge of turning evil forever, plus it will chronicle the birth of many of those well-known DC names and »

‘Gotham’ UK Trailer: From the Darkness, Heroes Will Be Born

20 August 2014 2:09 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

While Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice is promising fans an older, more world-weary Bruce Wayne, Fox’s upcoming prequel show Gotham is going in the opposite direction with a pilot episode that kicks off with a pre-teen Bruce losing his parents to a mugger in an alley. Ostensibly the show is not really about Bruce Wayne, however; instead, it follows the early career of newly-minted Detective Jim Gordon as he struggles to maintain his moral code in a city that’s in love with its own corruption.

That’s not to say, of course, that Gotham isn’t also going to feature a whole host of mini-heroes and mini-villains – they’re just too cute to resist. While Jim tackles mob bosses like Fish Mooney and Salvatore Maroni, he’ll also cross paths with the likes of a young Poison Ivy, ...

Review: Batman: Assault on Arkham is Bad.....Bad Ass!

11 August 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Legions of Gotham | See recent Legions of Gotham news »

You can pre-order this film on Amazon.com

Yeah, I said it. I'm obviously a lifelong Batman fan, especially in the realm of animation.  I'm very critical of the Dc Universe films..they're very hit and miss for  me.   This film is without a doubt my favorite of the Dc Universe films to date.  Assault on Arkham has it all..violence, sex, humor and dark twisted enjoyment for all.  This one is what 'The Losers' should have been.  Its like the Expendables with Dc Comics villains.  Top all that off with tons of villain cameos and Kevin Conroy reprising Batman, the role that he owns, and you have an absolute winner.

This review will contain some, but not all, Spoilers!  I'm not going to give you the plot points, but don't read if you don't want a few things revealed, I don't wanna have to call you a waaaaahmbulance.

A Dark Stain: The Infamous ‘Batman & Robin’

10 August 2014 4:57 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It suffered a 63% box office drop in its second week of cinematic release. It was nominated for eleven Golden Raspberry Awards, winning one. It has been singled out as a source of massive regret for much of its cast. It effectively ended two A-list film careers, signaled the decline of Hollywood’s most celebrated guilty pleasure strongman, and doomed its helmsman to a pantheon of lingering disgrace. It torpedoed a multimillion dollar franchise, wiped out two green-lit blockbusters and put one of pop culture’s biggest names into the dark for eight years. It is often cited as one of the worst movies ever made, and was crowned number one by Empire. Years later, its director would be compelled to actually apologize for it. When you collect your wits at last and begin to look at the mess with something approaching rationalization, you will be hard pressed to find a »

Broken, and Done: ‘Batman Knightfall’ shatters an icon

9 August 2014 7:33 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Batman: Knightfall

Written by Various

Art by Various

Published by DC Comics

It has long been argued, and rightfully so, that the Batman has the strongest rogues gallery in the biz. From the psychotic mirror image of the Joker, to his fractured former ally Two-Face. From the intellectual prowess of the Riddler to the shocking brutality of Killer Croc. From the demure sass of Catwoman to the psychosexual lust of Poison Ivy. And on and on the list goes.

Still, even with such an impressive and engaging list of villains, not a single one of them has ever beaten the Batman as handily and ruthlessly as Bane; never before, and never since.

It all begins, unsurprisingly, with a plot to bring down the Batman. What is surprising though is the scope and strategy that Bane puts into taking down the Bat. Bane doesn’t engage the Dark Knight directly when he arrives in Gotham, »

Holy Criminal Reincarnation! : Top 10 Underused TV Batman Villains Repackaged in the Movies

9 August 2014 7:16 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We are incorporating two elements here in the Caped Crusader’s universe: applying the Batman 60′s ABC-tv show (1966-1968/3 seasons) with the Batman film franchise (1989 and beyond). The link that we are looking for to connect Batman’s cheesy television past and its current and future filming state of mind is the conception of repackaging the Dynamic Duo’s cartoonish villains from the small screen and giving them new life on the big screen in the millennium. Let’s examine this line of reasoning, shall we?

As any Batman enthusiast (or casual observer) knows about the campy TV series back in the late 60′s is that the main off-kilter charm was the colorful and wacky regular guest star villains that populated the program many times through the three-year broadcast on the network. Household hooligans such as Catwoman, the Joker, the Penguin and the Riddler would return and become the routine »

‘Gotham’ TV Spots: A Dark City and the Criminals Who Live There

8 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Fans are eagerly anticipating the fall premiere of Fox’s Gotham – a series promising to explore a pre-Batman Gotham through the eyes of a young, inexperienced Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie). Yet it’s an anticipation mixed with apprehension as many are unsure of how well a series pitting Gordon against Gotham’s most infamous criminals will pan out.

The comparisons to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy are inevitable, and already the series might be trying too hard to fill the void left by excluding Gotham’s brooding protector. The marketing has made no secret of the series’ plan to introduce a bevy of Batman’s infamous rogues, with Catwoman, The Penquin, The Riddler, Poison Ivy, and most recently the mobster Sal Maroni set to appear. Seemingly, Gotham is approaching the popular mythos from the angle that the city’s most ...
