Tomorrow I’m supposed to have what is called a nuclear stress test – checking on the old ticker – during which they introduce a nuclear particle into my blood stream and then will track it. According to comic book physics, this should result in my gaining a super-power or two. So I’ve been considering what power(s) I might get or want.
There’s a spectrum of possibilities. Spider-Man got his powers through radioactivity, as did the Hulk. The Fantastic Four got their powers through a form of radiation. In the back of my mind, I wonder if the radioactive particle might activate some recessive mutant gene or possibly Terrigen mists like the Inhumans to which I may have been unwittingly exposed.
Daredevil got hit by a truck and some radioactive isotope/bar clonked him on the head which obviously gave him his radar sense. The Atom got his powers from White Dwarf Star radiation. »

There’s a Super sized hole in this one.
If you haven’t heard Warner Bros and DC are moving ahead with their Justice League adaptation with director Zack Synder at the helm. This is despite dismal reviews of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. It wouldn’t be fair to Justice League to put those same expectations on it though, even if it is from the same creative team, because it could be good. Right?
The marketing thus far for Justice League has done an excellent job of reminding you Superman is dead. He passed at the end of Batman V Superman although they left a giant, unsurprising suggestion at the end that maybe he wasn’t really dead. With Superman not able to assist the world against greater foes, Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) must scout the world for some assistance. Will this new league of heroes be able »

This morning, we got our second look at Justice League. DC Films and Warner Bros. drop what is being called the 'official trailer' after having premiered a sneak peek at Comic-Con way back in July, 2016. But still, no Superman. What gives? Where is he? We all know he's coming back to life, so is this tease really necessary? Director Zack Snyder thinks so.
At the end of Batman V Superman, Kal-El sacrificed his life to save not only Bruce Wayne and Wonder Woman, but the rest of Metropolis and Gotham as well. But as any DC fan worth their weight in Dark Knight DVDs knows, there is no keeping Superman dead and buried. Apparently, his absence plays a key role in the events that play out over the course of 2 hours. Just how much Superman the movie will actually have is anyone's guess. But director Zack Snyder has this to »
"We have to be ready. You, me, the others. There's an attack coming from far away," Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne warns in the preview, which introduces the cast of superheroes, showcases their powers and reveals how they formed the Justice League to fight "Parademons."
The trailer from the Zack Snyder-directed blockbuster is also soundtracked by the White »
After two days of teasing, the official Justice League trailer is here. “We have to be ready,” says a voice that sounds very much like Batman: “You, me and the others. There’s an attack coming, from far away.” “Not coming, Bruce,” says Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. “It’s already here.” Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne kicks off the action here, riding horseback along a snowy plain, on a mission to gather the rest of the superhero gang. So we then witness a gathering of the tribe… »

Affleck, Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher star in the Warner Bros. tentpole. Amy Adams, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, and Willem Dafoe will also appear in the film. While Henry Cavill’s Superman is expected to appear in the movie as well, he has been missing from recent promotions, including the latest trailer. »

Warner Bros. dropped the trailer for “Justice League,” its much-anticipated DC Comics ensemble film, early Saturday morning. The trailer features Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg in action for the first time, as they team up with Batman and Wonder Woman to the tune of The Beatles’ “Come Together.” The trailer also features Bruce Wayne, who seems to be wittier than he was in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” noting with deadpan snark that his superpower is that he’s “rich.” Also Read: 'Justice League:' J.K. Simmons says his role as Commissioner Gordon is 'Very Small' “It’s good »

Director Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" (2008) is considered by many to be among the best comic book films to have been released in recent times and along with the rest of the "Batman" movie series, enjoys a massive cult following from fans of all ages who flock to comic fan sites to stay up to date:
The fact "The Dark Knight" was released almost 10 years ago has done nothing to limit the movie's popularity, consistently ranking in top ten Best Movie Lists from around the world. Starring actor Heath Ledger in the role of the super-villain antagonist 'The Joker' and Christian Bale as 'Bruce Wayne'/'Batman', it was only a matter of time before new platforms were developed to breathe fresh life into "The Dark Knight" story.

Last week, we brought word that it appeared as though Joker and Riddler would be going head to head in the pages of Batman this June and, thanks to a freshly released batch of solicits, we now know that it’s an absolute certainty. Not only that, but we’ve also learned what’s on the horizon for related books such as All-Star Batman, Batgirl and Super Sons.
First, let’s talk about Batman, since I imagine you’re all anxious to hear about that one. As it turns out, we’re still in the dark when it comes to the wealth of the plot, but seeing as how DC is invoking the holy names of masterworks such as Year One and The Long Halloween, we can only assume that rumors saying the upcoming »

Love him or hate him, Hans Zimmer has quite the presence in the world of cinema. If you're here, reading this, then you've definitely heard his music, whether it be that from Pirates of the Caribbean, Sherlock Holmes, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, Batman V Superman, and even The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And that's just a sampling of his work! Whew!
Though he's not the only composer to score the music for two different Batman actors -- Elliot Goldenthal wrote the music for Batman Forever starring Val Kilmer and Batman & Robin with George Clooney -- he is the only one to write two completely different scores for separate Batman Universes. Based on the quality of Batman Forever and its sequel, I'm assuming Goldenthal didn't really give character motivation much thought when writing his Batman theme, but Zimmer took it very seriously. Now that he's done with superhero themes forever (or for now. »

One thing that we all have to grow accustomed to in any rebooted superhero film franchise is the recasting of not only the title character, but the supporting ones as well. After having gotten used to Michael Caine and Gary Oldman as Alfred Pennyworth and Jim Gordon, respectively, in The Dark Knight Trilogy, moviegoers must now acclimate themselves to seeing Jeremy Irons as Bruce Wayne’s trusted butler and J.K. Simmons as Gotham City’s top cop, the latter of whom makes his DC Extended Universe debut in Justice League.
Having already put a definitive spin on J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi’s trilogy of Spider-Man flicks, Simmons is obviously no stranger to the genre, but it stands to reason that his Commissioner Gordon will be a bit more straight-faced in the performance department.
The question on the mind of many a fan since his casting has been just »

Logan seems to be all that anyone can talk about right now, and with good reason. Unique and quite unlike anything we’ve seen from comic book movies before, James Mangold delivered a stunning final outing for the clawed mutant, showing us that you don’t need huge set pieces, a boatload of special effects or even a PG-13 rating to score a huge win in the genre. Thankfully, people are sitting up and taking notice of that and now, a whole host of superheroes look set to follow a similar path.
One character who likely won’t be going the stripped down, R-rated route, however, is Batman. Given the way that Warner Bros. is currently handling the Caped Crusader over in the DC Extended Universe, it’s not likely that we’ll get a more mature, character-driven film for the iconic hero any time soon – which is quite unfortunate. »

The Defenders roster is now complete. With the premiere of Marvel's Iron Fist -- all 13 episodes are available to stream at midnight -- the final spot in Netflix's assemblage of small screen Avengers has been filled by Danny Rand. Before you binge, here is a comprehensive guide of everything you need to know about Danny and his glowing fist of kung fu glory.
"The show is very gritty and very dark in certain aspects," Finn Jones explains to Et. "We tackle serious issues, like the heroin problem in New York and corporate cataclysm and corruption behind the scenes. There's definitely dark elements, but I think how Danny is different from the other superheroes is Danny has this naivety to him, which actually gets him in a lot of trouble."
Who is Danny Rand? He's a comic book character who has been kicking »
Ben Affleck is enjoying time with his kids — and getting ready for his next big movies.
The morning after announcing on his Facebook page that he had completed rehab for alcohol addiction, Affleck was business as usual as he was spotted taking his kids to school. A source tells People that the actor is relishing time with his children Violet, 11, Seraphina, 7, and Sam, 5, now that he’s back home.
“Ben is spending special time with all the kids separately,” the source says. “He seems very happy. The mood in general seems very upbeat. The kids are thrilled that he is back. »

With Mangold’s R-rated Wolverine flick Logan now behind us – the last dance of star Hugh Jackman – our attention is starting to turn back to future projects, which of course includes the much troubled DC solo movie The Batman.
Director Matt Reeves recently rescued the project from Ben Affleck who is now taking a back seat on affairs, focusing purely on his performing duties as Bruce Wayne. Recently a rumoured start floating about a page one re-write for the flick amid reports that production will be pushed back to 2018.
One fan of the character seems to be looking in a different direction for his future Batman kicks however, and reached out to James Mangold to see if he might be interested in directing a Batman film down the road. Mangold »
