DC Announces Two New Animated Films For 2015

26 July 2014 4:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We already know that the Aquaman-centric DC animated feature film Justice League: Throne of Atlantis will kick things off in 2015, but it’s just been revealed that it won’t be alone. 2015 will consist of three DC animated films, as revealed during the San Diego Comic-Con panel for the upcoming Batman: Assault on Arkham. 

The two new features are Batman Versus Robin, a sequel to this year’s Son of Batman, and an original story from Batman: The Animated Series co-creator Bruce Timm called Justice League: Gods & Monsters. 

Batman Versus Robin will be based on the Scott Snyder/Greg Capullo New 52 comic story “The Court of Owls,” which is one of my personal favorite Batman stories. However, it never featured Batman facing off with his sidekick, so expect this to be a loose adaptation of the run, much like Son of Batman was only partly based on Grant Morrison »

Comic-Con: 'Batman Vs. Robin' and 'Justice League: Gods and Monsters' Animated Movies Coming

25 July 2014 10:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier tonight, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment held a panel and a world premiere screening for their upcoming animated adventure Batman: Assault on Arkham at Comic-Con. During the panel, the studio announced the new titles that will debut in 2015, Batman Vs. Robin and Justice League: Gods and Monsters.

Bruce W. Timm will return to direct Batman Vs. Robin, which will also feature the Court of Owls. While no story details were given, it's believed that this will be an origin story featuring Talon and the Court of Owls, possibly adapted straight from Scott Snyder's comic book. In Court of Owls, Batman and Robin don't actually square off against one another, although there is a bit of tension between the duo and Nightwing. It's believed that this may also be a completely original story based on those characters, but that has not been confirmed.

The second movie is Justice League: Gods and Monsters, »

DC's 2015 Animations Revealed: Batman Vs. Robin, Justice League: Gods & Monsters

25 July 2014 8:44 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Here's what we've just learned from the Batman: Assault On Arkham panel at Sdcc: DC/WB's next animated feature films will be Batman Vs. Robin, which will also feature the Court Of Owls, and an original story by Bruce Timm who'll also return to direct -- Justice League: Gods And Monsters. Now as anyone who's read Scott Snyder's Court Of Owls arc will know, Batman and Robin don't square off in the story (although there is a bit of tension between he and Nightwing) so this will probably be either an original story featuring Talon and the Court Of Owls, or just a very loose adaptation. The next movie is Gods And Monsters, and will definitely be an original, which Bruce Timm will write and direct. We're fresh out of details on 'em for now, but please speculate in the usual place. »

Readers' Picks: 12 Essential Movies Kids Must Experience Before Turning 13

3 July 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Last week, EW published The 55 Essential Movies Kids Must Experience (Before Turning 13). Predictably, given that we published a post on the Internet whose headline contained a concrete number and the word “essential,” we got some impassioned feedback from readers—many of whom were eager to suggest additional great movies kids should see that we’d left out.

As we noted last week, “This isn’t a list of the 55 ‘best’ kids movies, nor a compendium of hidden gems. Rather, it’s a survival-guide syllabus of films that we all need to know to be able to speak the same pop-cultural language. »

‘Harley Quinn’ shows us a Harley not defined by her relationship to the Joker

19 June 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Harley Quinn Series

Written by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti

Art by Chad Hardin and Stephane Roux

Colors by Alex Sinclair

Letterer John J. Hill

Covers by Amanda Conner and Paul Mount

Published by DC Comics 

DC’s current Harley Quinn ongoing series does something that has never been done with the character: it gives her an identity not defined by the Joker. Quinn has forever been the long suffering companion to the Clown Prince of Crime, so much so that it’s hard to think of her as her own character and not just an extension of the Joker. DC must have felt the same way because when they started everything over with the New 52, they gave the character of Harley Quinn a complete makeover. Gone are the days of the red and black jester suit and domino mask. The new Dr. Harleen Quinnzel favors red and black bustiers and matching booty shorts. »

Editorial: Is Warner Bros. Following The Animated Plan?

5 June 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ever since Marvel started their beautifully crafted cinematic universe, many fans have wondered when, and how, were Warner Bros. going to give us a shared DC cinematic universe. This all intesified when Man of Steel was released and Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy was over. Many asked how Warner Bros. was going to catch up to Marvel's cinematic universe. Then came the announcement that the follow up to Man of Steel would have Batman, then Wonder Woman was announced, and now Cyborg is also apperantley in the film. This caused a panic among fans as they screamed that Warner Bros. has no clue what they're doing, that they're just rushing the DC cinematic universe, but it seems a very few calmed down and saw what Warner Bros plan actually was. The plan that Warner Bros. seems to be using was one used by their first shared universe. Bruce Timm »

Trevor Hogg tries to keep up with an impulsive historical figure who has a knack of getting in and out of trouble whether in the past or the future…

When fifteen-year-old Cleopatra (yes, That Cleopatra) finds a mysterious tablet that zaps her to the far, Really far future, she learns of an ancient prophecy that says she is destined to save the galaxy from the tyrannical rule of the evil Xaius Octavian.

 A pursuit takes place in a jungle located on an alien planet where a girl with a multi-coloured hairdo carrying a laser gun and a mysterious box mistakenly believes she has avoided capture.   A giant leap off a cliff in an attempt to avoid capture nearly has deadly consequences for the sassy teenager until a flying Sphinx bike with a cat appears.

To mark Batman's 75th anniversary, we've revisited each of the nine theatrically-released movies to come up with our definitive ranking from worst to best.

We've taken into account not only the films themselves, but also how they fit into the wider context of the character's cinematic legacy. Read our verdict on each below, and we hope the choice for number one gets you talking...

Batman 75th anniversary: An A-z of The Dark Knight

9. Batman & Robin (1997)

Occasionally a film's astronomical budget and hype can overwhelm it on initial release, prompting the critics to sharpen knives and audiences to switch off. Sometimes it takes time for a film to breathe and marinate, it can fare better when revisited after the dust settles. Unfortunately this isn't the case for Batman & Robin - 17 years down the line it's still a steaming pile on repeat viewing. »

Cool Videos: Live Action Batman The Animated Series Intro

14 May 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

One of my favorite childhood TV shows has received the live action treatment (sort of). Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski's Batman: The Animated Series is one of the best and most influential portrayals of the caped crusader; it also had quite the memorable opening credits sequence full of action-packed mayhem on the streets of Gotham City. Fans Tomi Pietilä, Teemu Saarinen and Tommi Tuominen have gone ahead and re-created most of the intro using an actual Batman, cops, and crooks. Check it out: Do you have a favourite Btas episode?

Bruce Timm Star Wars Art!

4 May 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »


This is some of the most awesome Star Wars art that I've come across in a long time. What makes it so cool is the fact that it was drawn by DC animation producer Bruce Timm. I've never seen this art of his before, but how amazing would it be if we got a Star Wars animated series in the same style as Batman: The Animated Series? Timm really is a talented artist and I love his style. This is the perfect post for Star Wars day.

Two Action-Packed Clips from Son Of Batman

1 May 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released two new great clips from their upcoming animated film Son of Batman. I had a chance to see this movie at WonderCon last month, and I was surprised by how good it was. The film was action-packed and had some fun brutal moments. I really enjoyed it, and the animation was some of the best I've seen from the DC Comics film series. I like how the style has evolved over the years and is moving away from the old school Bruce Timm style. Don't get me wrong, I love what he's done, but it's nice to see the animation team changing it up. 

The first clip is called "Thug," and it features a fight scene between little Damian and a giant thug named Ubu. It's kind of ridiculous watching this little kid kick this guy's ass around, but it sure is entertaining! The second clip is called "Fun, »
