Kickstarter launched for Batman creator Bill Finger documentary

7 February 2014 3:14 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A Kickstarter has been launched for a documentary about Batman co-creator Bill Finger.

The Cape Creator marks the 100th anniversary of the uncredited co-creator of the legendary superhero.

The Comic Arts Council, LLC project also marks the 75th anniversary of the Caped Crusader and the 25th anniversary of Tim Burton's Batman.

Athena Finger - granddaughter of the creator - and her son Benjamin are involved in the film, as is long-time Batman writer Denny O'Neil, film producer Michael Uslan and "several big surprises".

Finger devised many of the ideas that made co-creator Bob Kane's Batman a success - and went on to write the character throughout the '40s and '50s - but was never credited in his lifetime.

He was also the co-creator of Green Lantern and Wildcat.

The Cape Creator: A Tribute to Bat-Maker Bill Finger has currently raised $1,049 (£642) of its $12,016 (£7,355) goal. The crowdfunding campaign »

Graphic Review: The Joker: The Clown Prince of Crime

5 February 2014 10:51 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

In 1975, the Joker became the first Batman villain to be awarded his very own title. Throughout each issue, the Clown Prince of Crime went up against a super hero or another megalomaniacal criminal before his corrupt plans were foiled and he was sent back to prison or left for dead. DC Comics has done fans the great service of finally releasing the nine issue series that ran from 1975 to 1976 in one collection.

The Joker: The Clown Prince of Crime features the insane jester going up against or working with several of his partners-in-crime. There are appearances by Lex Luthor, the Scarecrow, Catwoman, Two-Face, the Creeper, and the Royal Flush Gang. The only super hero that shows up is Green Arrow. I have to commend the writers and editors of the book for never bringing Batman into the stories. It shows that they wanted the Joker to rest on his own laurels, »

Movie Review - Legends of the Knight (2013)

23 January 2014 11:12 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Legends of the Knight, 2013.

Directed by Brett Culp.


Stories, myths, legends - they have the power to shape our lives, and this documentary examines how one particular mythology has become a modern legend and inspires people to do great things: the story of The Batman.

Films, books, even bedtime stories from your parent or guardian, all have an amazing power over human beings. Dating back 40,000 years ago to the earliest discovered cave painting to modern day where we paint million dollar blockbusters on silver screens, our species have been captivated by stories. Affected his whole life by one particular story, director Brett Culp set out on his first major production to tell the story of others who've done great things by tapping in to the power of the same story: the story of Bruce Wayne, a man who as a child suffered the greatest tragedy that a child could »
