‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ author to write/direct ‘The Flash’ for WB

18 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

From book author to director, this man is making the leap.

As Warner Bros. puts together their line-up of superheros for the DC Universe, it seems like they will go with an interesting choice for the director of The Flash. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Seth Grahame-Smith, who has written the books Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Price and Prejudice and Zombies, will write and direct the movie that is starring Ezra Miller as the hero.

The movie got a treatment from The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, with the potential to be directed by them, before they left to helm the Han Solo spin-off for Disney.

Grahame-Smith has yet to direct a project with screenwriting work being done at Warner Bros. on Lego Batman and Tim Burton’s adaptation of Dark Shadows. The only directing work he has done was a couple episodes of the MTV comedy, »

"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - 'Lex Luthor'

19 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek the new "Fortune" magazine profile on 'Alexander Joseph Luthor Jr.', aka 'Lex Luthor', the arch enemy of 'Superman' in director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", opening March 2016:

"...'Lex' is a 31-year-old wunderkind who transformed an aging petrochemical and heavy machinery dinosaur into a tech darling of the 'Fortune 500' in what some call a superhuman feat.

"This jeans-wearing genius is equally at ease rappelling the climbing wall in his employee 'inspiration station' and coding in 'the crucible', the cutting-edge 'R & D' lab where the baby-faced billionaire verbally extemporizes computer code like Miles Davis improvising a trumpet solo.

"Taking the reins of the family business after the untimely death of his indomitable father, the prodigal son boldly changed the direction of the firm from oil and heavy machinery to tech...

20 Wtf Moments From Tim Burton’s Batman

30 September 2015 5:56 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Mad Magazine

If you’ve been following our series documenting the Wtf moments from Joel Schumacher’s Batman movies Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, you’ll know that the series has had its share of off-the-wall moments over the years.

But it wouldn’t be fair to give Schumacher all the credit now, would it? Tim Burton changed the cinematic landscape forever when he directed the first big-budget Batman movie, and enormously successful though it was, when viewed in a post-Nolan era it’s something of a bizarre relic above all else.

Full of peculiar aesthetic choices, questionable creative decisions and one very zany Joker performance, 1989’s Batman is an entertaining if flawed oddball of a film. It’s not for all Batman fans, but it deserves a measure of credit for helping get the franchise to where it is today.

Here are 20 Wtf moments from Tim Burton’s Batman… »

Check Out DC Collectibles' Amazing Wonder Woman Statue For Batman v Superman

30 September 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to Yahoo Movies, the resin statue above was designed by James Marsano and will measure 13" tall. It's going to set you back $150 if you fancy adding it to your collection, and is scheduled to be released to coincide with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next March.  Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.   Starring Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, »

Batman V Superman rating confirmed as PG-13 in North America

29 September 2015 11:42 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Batman V Superman rating revealed as PG-13; in line with Man Of Steel and every previous Batman movie. Batman V Superman rating

This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, but Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice has received a PG-13 rating in the Us from the MPAA. The rating comes with the additional tagline: For “intense sequences of violence and action throughout, and some sensuality.”

We don’t know who is involved in said scenes of sensuality, but maybe that when Bats and Supes are done with all of their ass-kicking of one another, they work things out in a very unpredictable way.

Batman V Superman rating

What is quite surprising is that the film is already rated, which means that it is 100% completed, meaning the WB will start to release some juicy new promotional material ahead of that distant March release.

Here’s the synopsis:

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Rating Is the One It Deserves

29 September 2015 8:31 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

On the off chance you were wondering what the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rating might be then wonder no more. The Motion Picture Association of America has officially slapped the Man of Steel sequel from director Zack Snyder with a PG-13 rating per Box Office Mojo.

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rating could have been guessed by a chimpanzee. What's intriguing comes from the descriptive rating that reads "intense sequences of violence and action throughout, and some sensuality."

Sensuality. Could that imply that the image seen above of Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) sharing a dance becomes steamy enough of a scene to be deemed "sensual" by the MPAA? It's certainly possible.

The rating ultimately means that a near final cut of the film is in the can and any changes from here on out would likely be superficial at best. An »

Batman Is About To Drop A Big Announcement, What Could It Be?

29 September 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Gotham season 2 episode 2 review: Knock, Knock

Cameron Monaghan’s Jerome ups his criminal game in this week’s rip-roaring episode of Gotham

This review contains spoilers.

2.2 Knock, Knock

Holy school bus petrol bomb, Batman! This week’s Gotham is one of the show’s best episodes yet. We’ve been encouraged to think of these opening three episodes of season two as a trilogy, and with that in mind Knock, Knock makes for a stellar second act.

Once again stealing the show is Cameron Monaghan’s proto-Joker, Jerome. He’s now incredibly comfortable in the role and continues to impress with every return that he makes. Although the rest of the Maniax – save for Barbara – are irritatingly underdeveloped, Monaghan has stepped into the unhinged ringleader role with some real gusto.

His performance this week – particularly that piece to camera at the end – really was Joker-worthy. He echoed Mark Hamill’s vocal dexterity throughout, and his ‘you »

12 Key Influences In Batman Begins

28 September 2015 5:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros & DC

It’s hard to believe that Batman Begins was released over a decade ago now. Before Christopher Nolan came along and revitalised the movie franchise, the character was in the toilet creatively thanks to Joel Schumacher’s wretched Batman And Robin, and Begins felt like a breath of fresh air, a gritty shift away from the mouldy camp that defined his last few outings.

As visionary as Nolan’s interpretation of the material was in both Begins and his later sequels, he certainly didn’t do it all on his own. Nolan and co-writer David S. Goyer drew extensively from the huge back catalogue of Batman comics, some iconic classics and others less well-known, but all contributing significantly to crafting some of Begins’ most memorable moments.

Some classic comic book panels have been painstakingly recreated by Nolan, whereas other ideas have been repurposed in the movie in »

Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) has briefly commented on his portrayal of iconic Batman villain The Joker in upcoming DC movie Suicide Squad.

Batman-News reported that Leto made comments about his work on Suicide Squad during a Q&A event for his band 30 Seconds to Mars.

Leto said, when asked about the film: “I can’t wait for you to see this – they’re going to lock me away in a box after this movie comes out.”

The star’s words will continue to spark speculation about what role Joker will play in Suicide Squad and how Leto will approach the role made iconic on the big screen by names as big as Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger.

Jared Leto Reveals Just How Deranged His 'Joker' Will Be In Suicide Squad

27 September 2015 2:12 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Between sending his Suicide Squad castmates rats and the footage we've seen of him on set and in the Comic-Con trailer, it's clear that Jared Leto's Joker is going to be perhaps the craziest version of the character to grace the big screen to date. That was pretty much confirmed this weekend when the actor made an appearance at the Dubai Music Week to take part in a fan Q&A. He didn't talk in detail about taking on the role of the Clown Prince of Crime, but did get into a rather interesting and funny altercation with a fan in attendance. Here's what went down courtesy of The National (via Batman-News). "And to the wise-guy who turned up in a Batman shirt? 'You’re really brave,' deadpanned Leto, before letting out a deranged laugh, referencing his upcoming role as The Joker in Suicide Squad. 'I can »

Why The Mask comic books deserve another movie adaptation

27 September 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jim Carrey scored a huge hit with The Mask, yet the comic books leave the door open for more films. Here's why they could work...

In some ways, 1994's The Mask was ahead of its time. Sure, when we try to pick out the greatest comic-book adaptations today, we're spoilt for choice: with Marvel entering the third phase of their cinematic universe, transforming formerly obscure characters into mainstream icons, and DC's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice ready to kick their movies up into a higher gear, the list of adaptations looks set to grow and grow.

Still, movies based on comic books remain largely superhero-centric, which is a shame considering the huge range of fantastic titles out there deserving of a larger audience. Just over 20 years ago, particularly in the UK, comic books and their respective characters were generally seen as childish, goofy, for nerds only – and the lack »

Poll: Who Was The Greatest Live-Action Batman So Far?

26 September 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Today is the day fans the word over show their appreciation for DC's Dark Knight, and with yet another live-action take on the character set to grace the big screen next year when Ben Affleck inhabits the cape 'n cowl, we though it would be a good opportunity to look back over the previous 7 actors who've brought life to the Caped Crusader over the years and see if we can decide who did the best job. The first actor to suit up as Batman was Lewis G. Wilson, who donned the cowl in the 15-part 1943 Columbia serial before being replaced by the much better received Robert Lowrey in 1949. Then we had Adam West's famously campy, but fondly remembered portrayal in the '60s Batman TV show. Things got a lot more serious when the Dark Knight finally made it to the big screen in Tim Burton's 1989 blockbuster, with »

9 Biggest Wtf Harley Quinn Moments

25 September 2015 12:44 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Harley Quinn. Making little boys confused circa 1992.

Intended as a one-off character in Batman: The Animated Series episode ‘Joker’s Flavour’, Harley’s popularity soared like a Seal single from Space Jam and she became an overnight sensation, like that Youtuber whose name you forgot because their fifteen minutes of fame was fifteen minutes too long.

After appearing in more episodes, Harley was the first Batman character to be created for another medium and then established in-canon in the comics. Created by Paul Dini and designed by Bruce Timm, two men who had more influence on your childhood then you’ll ever know, the concept of Harley was inspired by actor Arleen Sorkin, who once wore a jester costume in an episode of Days of Our Lives. Arleen even came in to voice the character and the psychopathic psychiatrist that we all know and love was born.

'Wonder Woman' Writer Explains Difference Between Marvel and DC

24 September 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans got their first look at the new Superman (Henry Cavill) in 2013's Man of Steel, and next year we'll get to see even more heroes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. One of those iconic crime fighters is Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), who is getting her own stand alone movie that starts production in November. Way back in December, we reported that Pan screenwriter Jason Fuchs will write the screenplay. But with shooting just a few months away, Warner Bros. still hasn't even confirmed his involvement. During an interview with Collider, the writer himself wouldn't confirm that he wrote the script, only saying "Warners has been very kind to me." He did offer his thoughts about how the DC Comics movie universe is much different from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"This is what I would say. When you work for DC, it's sort of like working for the CIA. »
