11 April 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In case you didn't know, this year marks the 75th Anniversary of Batman, hot on the heels of last year's celebration of the 75th anniversary of Superman. Warner Bros. is doing all sorts of celebrations for The Dark Knight (you can learn more about their plans here), and one of their little tributes to the Caped Crusader has come in the form of a new animated short from Bruce Timm, the man behind the spectacular "Batman: The Animated Series." In the stylish short, Batman is in pursuit of Hugo Strange, who we all once thought would be part of Christopher Nolan's franchise. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the short below! Here's Bruce Timm's animated short Batman: Strange Days from DC Entertainment: In addition, there's a second animated short that will debut later this month at WonderCon in Anaheim, and it comes from Darwyn Cooke (behind "Batman Beyond »

'Robot Chicken' creators get grilled on their 'DC Comics Special II'

10 April 2014 7:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) At six seasons and counting, "Robot Chicken" has become a cultural force almost as strong as the iconic characters and properties that it makes fun of on a weekly basis. In fact, the Adult Swim series has become a sort of singular destination for roasts of beloved movies, TV shows, comic books and pop culture mythologies, producing spinoffs like its massively-popular "Star Wars" parodies and, most recently, the second installment of their foray into one particular comic book universe with the "Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise." The special premiered over the weekend, and will undoubtedly play again on the show's home channel, Cartoon Network. Creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, along with series executive producer and DC's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns recently spoke with Cbr News recently about the process of mounting an episode dedicated to one particular nerd universe.

8 female comic book characters who deserve their own movies

9 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's no secret that women have been neglected in comic book movies. Certainly, only a tiny number of female superheroes have so far made it to the big screen. Female leads are still shockingly rare, and even Joss Whedon only managed one out of six in his Avengers ensemble movie.

Things are looking up, with Scarlet Witch and Gamora coming to Avengers: Age of Ultron and Guardians of the Galaxy respectively, hints at a Black Widow solo outing, and Wonder Woman due to feature in the Batman vs Superman film - although, tellingly, not in her own movie.

It's time that the women of comics got some recognition. Here are our top picks from the many worthy candidates that we want to see in their own solo movies:

Wonder Woman

Who is she?

As if you need to be told. DC Comics's foremost heroine, she is a feminist icon »

Captain America Sequel Breaks Records, Sinister Six Director, Dreadstar to the Screen, Made in Sweden, Chewbacca's Back!

8 April 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Box Office When Warner Bros. moved the release of the as-yet-untitled Man of Steel sequel to May 6, 2016, the same date that Marvel had staked out for Captain America 3, many thought that Marvel President Kevin Feige was being a little too optimistic when he laughed off the idea of moving Cap's third outing to another date. Now, we know that Feige simply had confidence that his Super Soldier could stand up to Superman and friends as Captain America: The Winter Soldier is breaking records left and right. Before the movie even opened, The Winter Soldier broke the advance ticket sales record for the month of April. When it finally debuted this weekend, it thoroughly trounced the competition, taking in $95 million to set a new record for the month of April, besting previous record holder Fast Five's $86.2 million opening. The Winter Soldier opened 46% higher than the original movie, no doubt »

Captain America and the Importance of Being Earnest

3 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Here at Moviefone, we think America's greatness should be celebrated all year long -- or, at the very least, for an extra week. That's why we're declaring March 31 - April 4 "America F@$& Yeah" week, with five days of patriotic interviews and features that honor America and the movies.

Captain America has been Marvel's flagship character since Joe Simon and Jack Kirby drew up the first issue in March of 1941, their star-spangled superhero punching Hitler in the face like some fever dream of Betsy Ross. Since his Silver Age revival in the 1960s (under Kirby and Stan Lee) Cap has been a man out of time, an unapologetically patriotic hero celebrated in the Vietnam/counterculture era, transcending the red, white, and blue uniform to become a universal icon.

As portrayed with surprising psychological depth by Chris Evans, our favorite frozen Capsicle has been thawed for a new generation of moviegoers, starting »

The Ten Best Captain America Artists Part 2

1 April 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Drawing Captain America either in his own title or Avengers has been a right of passage for superhero artists since the 1960s. Even artists who have gone on to do very different things, like write and draw Superman’s modern origin (John Byrne) or create Blade the vampire hunter (Gene Colan) have had memorable takes on Cap’s adventures. However, some artists aren’t up for the task. For example, hot-shot X-Force artists and one of the founders of Image Comics Rob Liefeld was tasked with writing and drawing Captain America for Marvel’s Heroes Reborn event. This was the result. However, many artists over the past couple decades have brought new styles and techniques to Captain America’s appearances in various Marvel titles while showing how timeless this character is.

The Ten Best Captain America Artists (Part 1)

1 April 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Captain America is one of the most famous and important superheroes in the Marvel Universe. He is also the oldest Marvel hero to consistently have his own comic as he was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1941. Beginning as a figure of anti-German and Japanese propaganda, Captain America and his civilian identity evolved into a man out of time, and one who was filled with great guilt because of the death of his partner Bucky Barnes. He went from wholeheartedly supporting the United States’ policy to refusing to wear the stars and stripes when the president himself was at the center of a conspiracy to hunt him down and kill him. He has fought and been betrayed by old friends and lovers, but Captain America still act as the moral center of the Marvel Universe, and the hero everyone from Spider-Man to The Punisher and Wolverine look up to and respect. »

Batman: 75 Greatest Ever Moments

31 March 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros

This week sees the 75th anniversary of Batman. Having appeared for the first time in 1939 as part of Detective Comics, the Caped Crusader has so far survived some woeful creative decisions, multiple deaths, several ill-conceived tonal shifts as well as an army of rogues hell-bent on killing him to become arguably the most enduring comic book icon in the history of the medium.

Without so much as a superpower, Batman is the most relatable of all heroes, marked by tragedy and defined both by a fundamental need to protect his people, and to wipe out the culture of crime. He might not be the white knight that Superman represents to Metropolis, but he is the hero that Gotham needs, and the one that millions of comic book fans want.

Over 75 years, the highlights have been as varied and as engaging as Bob Kane could ever have conceivably imagined »

The big blockbusters of summer 2015

Feature Simon Brew 31 Mar 2014 - 05:42

Blockbuster season is almost upon us, but what will next summer's big hitters be? Here's a roundup

Once upon a time, summer blockbuster season 2015 was set to be packed with the biggest collision of big franchises we'd ever seen together. However, one by one, lots of these films moved away to other dates. As such, you won't be seeing Star Wars: Episode VII, Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Independence Day 2, Batman Vs Superman or Finding Dory in a cinema next summer.

But even with those films gone, there's still no shortage of huge movies battling for your cash in a year's time. And as is traditional for us at the start of summer blockbuster season, we've taken a look at what's coming up in 12 months' time.

We kick off at the start of April (although note that March has Kenneth Branagh’s live action Cinderella movie, »

10 Lessons Batman Vs. Superman Can Learn From Superman: The Animated Series

19 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The WB/DC

The currently untitled sequel to Man of Steel has created a lot of debate in Hollywood and on the internet, mostly related to casting decisions for particular characters and the announcement that fellow DC superheroes Batman and (to a lesser extent) Wonder Woman would appear in this film. The idea of a movie featuring both of DC’s most popular characters has been a dream of many fans, but the reality is starting to set in. Man of Steel was a very polarizing film, so people are skeptical at best of what Zack Snyder and company are going to do with this movie.

Now that production has been delayed 10 months, the team are probably reviewing the script before they go into shooting. With that in mind, here are 10 lessons the screenwriters and director can learn from a small-screen example of Batman and Superman working together, as seen »
