Watch: 'Gray Ghost' Short Inspired by 'Batman: The Animated Series'

27 August 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Remember kid: this is the only law left in this town." Damn this is cool. A couple of friends, who grew up with Batman as their childhood hero, have decided to make a short film inspired by the classic 1992 episode of Batman: The Animated Series, 'Beware The Gray Ghost'. Titled The Gray Ghost, this short film chronicles the live-action adventures of "The Gray Ghost" aka Simon Trent. In the original animated series, Trent (voiced by Adam West) is depicted as a down-on-his-luck actor who was typecast for life playing a masked avenger on a black-and-white serialized TV show. This short film plays like a "lost reel" from the old serialized show, and it's very well done for something some friends made in their spare time. Check this out! From their Vimeo page: Heart-Beat Productions presents a short film Directed by J.L. Topkis and Written by Matt Landsman. "We are filmmakers »

Entertainment Geekly: Your thoughts on the DC Cinematic Universe

14 August 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

Last week, I asked a simple question: Is the DC Cinematic Universe–the Warner Bros. back-of-the-napkin plan to launch an all-out assault on Marvel Studios by unleashing a double-digit boatload of superhero movies between now and 2020–actually a thing? Will the Man of Steel-verse actually transform into a cape-ier alternative to the Avengers-verse? Or is this a Valiant-Comics-in-1992 thing–a situation where all the elaborate and ambitious universe-building plans will ultimately dead-end »

Review: Batman: Assault on Arkham

10 August 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Based on a video game, Batman: Arkham, which I do not play, I came into Batman: Assault on Arkham, without any particular predisposition. As the first editor of the Suicide Squad, I was intrigued to see how they would operate. As I feared, screenwriter Heath Corson totally misused the team in this violent, pointless direct-to-animated mess which is unleashed on Tuesday.

Amanda Waller (Cch Pounder) played within the gray areas of the DC Universe, picking damaged heroes and villains, as needed for missions. She made sure there was a field leader to keep them in line, and offered the heroes something they wanted and the villains a chance at clearing their records. Here, she collects a motley assortment of villains without a real rationale for each, putting them together for a mission that makes little sense. The silly MacGuffin here is that the Riddler (Matthew Gray Gubler) has stolen »

(Cbr) Batman, Robin and Catwoman took over Hall H, and fans couldn't have been happier. Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar headlined Thursday's San Diego Comic-Con International panel celebrating the Nov. 11 launch of "Batman '66: The Complete Television Series" on Blu-ray.   "Fans always ask me, 'When can we own the series? When is it coming to [Blu-ray]?'" West told the Hall H crowd, adding that he is now very happy to have an answer for those patient fans.   Moderator and Los Angeles radio personality Ralph Garman introduced the panelists -- Newmar was escorted on stage by two "Henchman" wearing masks -- then West surprised fans by giving a shout out to another Catwoman in the crowd -- Lee Meriwether -- and then treated the excited crowd to both behind-the-scenes stories and clips from the remastered episodes.   As much as fans were excited to see the celebrities on stage, »

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 | ComicBookMovie.com | 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 | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - 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. »
