First Image From Batman And Harley Quinn Surfaces

4 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

In recent years, DC animated films have followed a certain model, releasing two movies told within a continuity heavily influenced by the New 52, with one out of continuity standalone to follow. In the case of 2017, Justice League Dark and Teen Titans: The Judas Contract continue carrying the New 52 torch, with Batman and Harley Quinn being the outside the box offering.

Up until now, not much has been known about Batman and Harley Quinn aside from the fact that it will be an original feature from the mind of one of the Clown Princess of Crime’s co-creators, Bruce Timm. Now, however, an image has surfaced that speaks volumes as to what we can look forward to.

As it so happens, the folks at The World’s Finest spotted the first photo to be taken from the film on the iTunes extras page for Teen Titans: The Judas Contract. »

First-look image from Bruce Timm’s Batman and Harley Quinn animated movie

25 March 2017 4:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to the iTunes page for Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, we’ve got the very first image from the third DC Universe Animated Original Movies release of 2017, Batman and Harley Quinn; check it out here…

Although very little is known about Batman and Harley Quinn, we do know that it is directed by DC Animated Universe legend Bruce Timm, from his original story. And judging from the image, it looks very close in style to Timm’s The New Batman Adventures too… could this be a return to the Dcau continuity to mark the 25th anniversary of Batman: The Animated Series?

Batman and Harley Quinn is slated for release this summer. »

Rounding up yesterday’s big news stories…

DC Assembles The Justice League

The wait is almost over, as Warner Bros. has announced that the trailer for Justice League is set to arrive online this Saturday, and to whet our appetites the studio is releasing a series of character posters and teasers, beginning with Aquaman, Batman and The Flash. Expect Wonder Woman and Cyborg later today.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Character Posters

Not to let DC steal all the headlines, Marvel has unveiled a series of character posters for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, with James Gunn sharing a poster for Kurt Russell’s Ego [see here], which was followed by one-sheets for Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Groot (Vin Diesel), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), along with the villainous Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki).

'Beauty and the Beast' to Repeat at #1 Over 'Power Rangers', 'Life' and 'CHiPs'

23 March 2017 1:36 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

As has been the case over the last three weekends, this weekend is looking to outperform last year and, once again, by a significant margin. The big story, of course, is Disney's Beauty and the Beast as it continues to blow the doors off, becoming one of the fastest films to top $200 million at the domestic box office and, by the end of this weekend, will have topped $300 million in just ten days of release. In addition to Beauty and the Beast's second weekend, three new wide releases make their debut including Lionsgate's Power Rangers, Sony's R-rated sci-fi Life and WB's R-rated comedy CHiPs, all of which will have varying degrees of success as the top twelve should top a combined $180 million, making it the second largest weekend of the year. As of Wednesday, Disney's Beauty and the Beast has brought in $217.6 million domestically and another $244.3 million internationally. This »

WWE in secret talks to buy Ring Of Honor! John Cena teases top Roh star…

23 March 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

John Cena doesn’t just like to troll fans about potential heel turns. He also likes to troll fans on Instagram with teases of great wrestlers who don’t currently work for WWE.

Some of those teases come to pass, like when Cena posted an image of Aj Styles several weeks before The Phenomenal One’s 2016 WWE debut. Others are purely to frustrate us, like his multiple posts hinting at a Kenny Omega surprise entrance for January’s Royal Rumble.

Earlier this week, Cena posted the below not-so-flattering image of Ring of Honor’s Jay Lethal.

Is the former Roh World Champion coming to WWE? Will Vince McMahon make him reprise the Black Machismo gimmick? And holy 60s spandex, does Cena’s post of Adam West and Burt Ward from the Batman TV series two days later mean they’ll be debuting in Nxt?

I can’t say for certain about Batman and Robin, »

Exclusive: Dax Shepard on Casting Kristen Bell as a 'Sh*thead' and Directing His Own Nude Scene

23 March 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Not 24 hours before I met up with Dax Shepard to discuss his CHiPs reboot (or as it's now called, Chips), Kristen Bell had done the same, interviewing her husband and their costar, Michael Peña, as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight. That's a tough act to follow, and even more so after hearing how she did from Shepard: "Much hotter than your average host, I gotta say," he deadpanned. "I don't actually know who she was replacing, so that's not directly comparing her to someone else. But any question that she asks goes down with a spoonful of sugar."

Despite the taste of my questions (salty?), Shepard happily discussed his wife and how she ended up playing a "sh*thead" in his movie, the perks of casting famous friends, and hard-r ratings -- it's the same Chips you love, now with more dick jokes!

‘Power Rangers’ Producer: ‘We Already Have a Six-Movie Arc’

22 March 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Haim Saban doesn’t do anything in a small way.

Even as he readies “Power Rangers” for its introduction to a young generation by re-introducing the characters in a new origin-story movie, he’s got a roadmap for their cinematic future.

“We already have a six-movie story arc,” Saban says.

What goes around comes around, and that’s particularly true when you’re introducing a new generation to a classic team of superheroes. Characters that one generation has outgrown look fresh and exciting to a new audience. And there’s always a new audience.

But today’s viewers are more sophisticated than the kids who tuned in to “The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” the TV series that began airing in 1993. Saban created the long-running series by mixing newly produced footage with action sequences from a Japanese TV series, »

Netflix's Death Note Trailer Brings the Iconic Manga to Life

22 March 2017 9:22 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While some novices may not realize what is about to hit Netflix this summer, fans do, and they have been waiting for the American Death Note adaptation for quite some time. Originally envisioned as a big screen reboot of the popular Japanese franchise, the movie eventually wound up at Netflix. And now, it is set to be one of their biggest original summer movie releases ever. Today, we have a first look at this thriller.

'We suggest you obey the rules'. That's the warning issued at the forefront of this spooky tale. Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone's name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the »

‘Death Note’ First Trailer: Adam Wingard Reimagines the Manga Series in Netflix Original Film

22 March 2017 8:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Netflix has released the first trailer for director Adam Wingard’s “Death Note.” The live-action adaptation of the popular manga will be released in August as a Netflix original movie.

The original story from creators Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata centers on a student named Light Turner (Nat Wolff) who finds a mysterious notebook that kills people when their name is written in it.

“I think Anime are due for the same treatment that comics got when Nolan did ‘Batman,’ Wingard said during a Reddit Ama last year. “I think the key is straying away from overt Anime style like ‘Speed Racer’ and ‘Dragon Ball’ and instead try to ground the stories in more relatable ways.

First Trailer for Adam Wingard’s ‘Death Note’

22 March 2017 7:44 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following last year’s surprise Blair Witch sequel, director Adam Wingard (The Guest, You’re Next) is back with a new film this year. His latest project is the Netflix-distributed, Japanese-manga-to-American-film adaptation Death Note, and the first trailer has landed today ahead of an August release. For those unfamiliar with Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata‘s source material, the film follows student Light Turner (Nat Wolff) who uncovers a mysterious notebook that — spoiler alert — kills people if their name is written in it.

“I think anime are due for the same treatment that comics got when Nolan did Batman. I think the key is straying away from overt anime style like Speed Racer and Dragon Ball and instead try to ground the stories in more relatable ways.

Official Solicit Sheds More Light On Dark Days: The Forge #1

21 March 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yesterday, DC took us all by surprise by announcing two one-shots set to be published under the title of Dark Days, the first of which will ship in June. Co-written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV, with art by John Romita Jr., Jim Lee and Andy Kubert, it’ll no doubt demand the attention of not just Batfans, but those of DC as a whole.

It’s certainly no secret by now that Snyder is cooking up a major event with Greg Capullo, which will center heavily on the Dark Knight. Knowing that, it caused us to believe that the upcoming one-shots will serve as a prelude to the main event.

Well, thanks to the official solicit touting The Forge with the line “The great comics event of summer 2017 is about to begin,” it seems like our suspicions of this being a prologue have been validated. Now, that doesn »

Mark Hamill Reveals The First Known Photo Of Luke Skywalker

20 March 2017 8:38 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The man. The myth. The legend. Mark Hamill

Some surely recognize him as the best Joker of all from his work on Batman: The Animated Series, Batman: The Killing Joke, the Arkham series of video games, and many other little appearances here and there. To millions more, however, Mark Hamill will always be Luke Skywalker, both in the original Star Wars Trilogy and the current one.

Leading up to the annual Star Wars Celebration, Hamill has released what may be the very first photo of him in character as Luke Skywalker on Twitter! The photo is from the first day of shooting in Tunisia in March 1976.

Tunisia? I mean Tatooine, of course!

Artist Bernie Wrightson Has Passed Away

19 March 2017 2:43 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

His illustrations may have caused you to dread the next full moon, avoid the swamp on your shortcut home, or ignite your imagination with a peek into the post-apocalypse. Through his artwork, Bernie Wrightson has influenced and inspired generations of horror fans, so it is with great sadness that we inform readers that the prolific artist has passed away at the age of 68 after a long battle with brain cancer.

Wrightson's wife, Liz, shared the somber news of her husband's passing earlier today on the artist's official website and Facebook page.

A fan of EC Comics growing up, Bernie Wrightson, aka "Berni," began working on projects for both DC and Marvel early in his career, co-creating the complex character Swamp Thing with writer Len Wein in the early ’70s. Bernie later worked for Warren Publishing, where he helped bring H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe stories to life on the paneled page. »

With The Batman Delayed, Which DC Movie Will Fill the Void?

17 March 2017 3:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, a report revealed that director Matt Reeves won't be ready to shoot The Batman until 2018, since he is currently knee-deep in post-production work on War For the Planet of the Apes, which hits theaters on July 14. While no official release date has been given for The Batman, it is believed that Warner Bros. is rushing to push another one of their projects into production, to fill the void of left by this Batman reboot. Aquaman will definitely start shooting this summer in Australia. Now there are reportedly five other movies that the studio is eyeing for a production start this year. Here's what Variety reporter Justin Kroll had to say on Twitter.

"With Batman likely shooting in 2018, WB still would like one more DC property to shoot this year other than Aquaman. The 5 films being considered are Sirens, Flash, Lantern, Squad 2 and Dark Universe. That said if scripts aren't ready to go, »

DC Extended Universe: WB Wants To Shoot One More Film In 2017 Other Than Aquaman

17 March 2017 12:19 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The DC Extended Universe is in a state of re-repair right now. In 2016, they came out of the gates running, with Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad both hitting theaters on schedule, and with Wonder Woman and Justice League still scheduled to hit their release dates, 2017 looks to be a pretty solid year for them as well. The years after that, however, are kind of a big question mark. The Flash and The Batman have both been delayed indefinitely, and the announced slate beyond Justice League has been scattered into disarray.

It’s important to note that this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Yes, they may be off-schedule, but if they actually take the time to think their strategy through before putting out, there’s a better chance they end up with better-received films in the future. As it stands, it looks like Aquaman will be the only film »

It’s getting to be that time of the month when DC starts rolling out solicits for comic books due to ship three months from now. As such, we’ve been given insight into upcoming issues of Trinity, Hal Joran and the Green Lantern Corps and Aquaman, two of which will begin new story arcs.

First, let’s take a look at Trinity, which looks to offer a nice alternative for those who may or may not be digging what’s going on over in the Justice League books. Normally, the focused is placed squarely on DC’s biggest guns – Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman – but it seems the rest of their Jl cohorts will be joining them for the “All Along The Watchtower” arc.

Warner Bros. wants to shoot another DC movie this year following The Batman delay

17 March 2017 5:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Warner Bros. delaying production of The Batman until next year and pushing back the Aquaman solo movie to December 2018, it is being reported that the studio is keen on shooting a new instalment of the DC Extended Universe this year for release in 2018.

According to Variety’s Justin Kroll, the top five choices for the studio are The Flash and Green Lantern Corps, along with recent additions to the slate Gotham City Sirens, Suicide Squad 2, Justice League Dark (a.k.a. Dark Universe), although they are reportedly happy to have Aquaman as the sole DC Films release of 2018 if none of those can be readied in time.

DC Buzz: 'The Batman' Likely Delayed; Henry Cavill Gets Pumped Up for Green Lantern

15 March 2017 6:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

With The Lego Batman Movie the top-grossing release of 2017 so far and Suicide Squad being an Oscar winner, this is turning out to be a great year for DC superhero movies. So let's keep the buzz on the brand positive with the latest news:    The Batman probably won't shoot this year For many fans, a delay on the next solo Batman movie will seem like a bad thing. But if more time means a better product, then we should be all happy that The Batman may not begin filming until next year. Variety's Justin Kroll tweeted word that newly hired director Matt Reeves is tied to War for the Planet of the Apes through June and so probably won't even get into planning his next movie until July at the earliest...

All-Star Batman #8 Review

All-Star Batman #8 Gallery 1 of 9   

Click to skip

More From The Web Click to zoom 

This review contains minor spoilers. 

Scott Snyder’s All-Star Batman series, which features the Dark Knight travelling the Us and meeting a revolving door of his worst enemies, has served up seven high-quality issues so far. Issue #8, however, might just be the best one yet.

In ‘Ends of the Earth: Part 3,’ Batman travels to the swamps of Mississippi to confront the Mad Hatter, who he believes might be behind the necrotic plague released by Mr. Freeze back in Part 1. It turns out that the Lewis Carroll-loving weirdo might have a bigger bombshell than that up his sleeve, though. In a trippy, ultra-surreal tale, Jervis Tetch suggests that Bruce Wayne’s life as Batman is all a hallucination brought on by Tetch’s own ‘Looking Glass’ technology.

What Snyder has done in each previous issue is »
