What if Batman vs. Superman had been made in the 1980s?

5 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 With the anticipation building for next month’s release of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, we thought it would be fun to speculate what it would have been like if a version of this film had been made 30 years earlier. How would this project have looked if it was made with Christopher Reeve, Adam West and Lynda Carter?

 In 1980, Christopher Reeve--generally considered the best Superman of the big screen--starred in Superman 2, the successful sequel to his earlier blockbuster Superman: The Movie (1978). The box office windfall of that film guaranteed that Superman would fly again on movie screens. (He ultimately made two more sequels.)

 Only a year before, Adam West had reprised his career-defining role of Batman in the mini-series Legends of the Super-Heroes (1979). He’d originally portrayed the caped crusader in the TV series Batman, which ran from 1966-1968. West additionally supplied the voice of Batman »

Gotham Set Pics Fully Reveal Nathan Darrow As Mr. Freeze

5 February 2016 5:04 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Though we did get a somewhat obscured glimpse of the character already via these previously released stills, a batch of images from the set of season 2B of Fox’s Gotham give us a proper look at House Of Cards actor Nathan Darrow as classic Batman baddie Mr. Freeze in all his… glory?

To be fair, there’s not a whole lot of ways that such a distinctively Ott-looking character can be faithfully adapted without resorting to a bit of camp – but this will no doubt conjure not-so fond recollections of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s much-maligned take on Freeze from Joel Schumacher’s Batman And Robin

Whatever you may think of Gotham‘s take on this icy antagonist, one thing is for sure: this marks a radical departure from the previous villain incarnations we’ve seen on the show, and may well herald the way for more »

‘The Bazaar of Bad Dreams’ by Stephen King (2015) Book Review

31 January 2016 11:00 PM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Jesse Miller

MoreHorror.com

A teacher buys a kindle that can tap into an alternate universe where his favourite (long dead) authors are still writing. A judge finds names drawn into the sand on his beach – names that are tied too dead folk soon after in the local paper. Hauntings, bad people, evil cars, jet black comedy – they’re all here in Stephen King’s The Bazaar of Bad Dreams, his sixth collection of short stories.

So come on down to Stevie’s bazaar and see what he’s selling. On offer here are twenty tales, some brand new and others previously published in various different magazines.

This thick collection sees King doing what he does best – capturing every day folk and putting them through hell, either literally or otherwise.

It’s all here: Drama, Science Fiction, Horror, Fantasy, Black Comedy and for the most part, it all works. »

“I Think He Found It A Little Bit Hard”: Zack Sndyer On Chris Nolan's Reaction On Hearing About 'Batman v Superman,' Plus New Pics

27 January 2016 11:38 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Across three films, Christopher Nolan not only relaunched Batman for Warner Bros., but he brought the character into the contemporary age. His version is a far cry from the rendition seen in Joel Schumacher's "Batman And Robin," and "The Dark Knight" trilogy stands as a towering achievement in the comic book movie realm. Nolan showed he had the insight to give the superhero satisfying dramatic depth, while providing audiences the big screen thrills they expect. So it's no wonder that WB hung onto the director when they rebooted Superman with "Man Of Steel," with Nolan sliding into an executive producer role. But he moved on from the superhero fare afterwards, with Zack Snyder now heading up the braintrust for the studio's DC Extended Universe. In a new chat with Empire, Snyder speaks about the moment he reached out to Nolan to let him know he was going to be »

Old Heroes Fall and New Ones Rise in ‘Robin War’ #2

13 January 2016 8:33 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Robin War #2

Written by Tom King

Art by Khary Randolph, Alvaro Martinez and Raul Fernandez, Carmine Di Giandomenico, Steve Pugh, Scott McDaniel and Andy Owens

Colors by Chris Sotomayor, Emilio Lopez, Mat Lopes

Letters by Tom Napolitano

Published by DC Comics

Robin War #2 ends up being about a theme that has permeated the Batman family of books since the beginning of the New 52: family. As Dick Grayson plays the lone martyr battling Lincoln March at the Court of Owls’ HQ and pleading for Damian to leave, the rest of the original Robins, the We Are Robin kids, and even the Gotham Pd and Batman band together to score a resounding victory for the Talons. It’s a grand moment that gets cast in the shadow of Dick Grayson’s continual moral compromise as he tries to pull a Batman at the end of “Endgame” and sacrifice everything for Gotham, »

Exclusive Portrait: A Bat Anniversary for Adam West & Burt Ward

13 January 2016 5:50 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In the 1960s, the entertainment world was summed up by the three “B’s” – Bond, Beatles and…Batman. On January 12th, 1966, the pop culture TV phenomenon called “Batman” – starring Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin – made its debut on ABC-tv. Happy 50th Anniversary to the Dynamic Duo.

Holy Anniversary! Burt Ward (Robin) and Adam West (Batman) Celebrate Their 50th

With the episode entitled “Hi Diddle Riddle, Smack in the Middle” – with Frank Gorshin as the villain “The Riddler” – the show was beamed into American living rooms in living color, during an age when only three networks had programming. It immediately became a sensation, and aired twice-a-week in the first two seasons, “same Bat-Time, same Bat-Channel.” It spawned a revival for the character of Batman, and actually helped to create the Dark Knight. The show’s silly »

The Incredible '66 Batman Lego Set is What Dreams Are Made Of

12 January 2016 12:17 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Adam West starring Batman TV series, one of the most beloved incarnations of the DC character. Lego is celebrating with an amazing looking new set that will have fans and collectors rushing the stores.  Come inside for your official, high-res, look at the set! 

I need this.  Despite the fact that I do my best to keep my toy purchases limited to my Star Wars collection (otherwise there's No room in my house), I can't help but pine for this new Lego set.  While eager collectors have spotted this previously, today brings the official confirmation from Lego...and it looks better than any of us could have imagined.  Here's what all it comes with:

Help Batman and Robin to drive the villain intruders from the Batcave, featuring a Bat Lab with Batcomputer, plus the Batmobile with stud shooters, Batcopter with flick missiles and the Batcycle. »

TNT Exec Says Titans Stalled Because Of Script And Crowded Superhero Market

8 January 2016 4:22 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

On paper, a live-action Teen Titans shows appears to be a no-brainer.  There's already public exposure for the team due to several animated programs.  While the general public may have been confused as to how Nightwing fits into the Batman and Robin dynamic, the character of Dick Grayson is still a pop culture icon.  However, TNT Chief Creative Officer Kevin Reilly told The Hollywood Reporter that issues with the script and the general saturation of superhero in the public sphere is what attributed to the basic cable network's decision to pass on the sho w.  Said Reilly, "It wasn't [the fact that we didn't own the characters]. Akiva [Goldsman] is a talented guy, [but] the script just wasn't there. There is an unbelievable glut of superhero things in the market right now and if you have a really good one, clearly people are up for it. But I just don't think that there's a »

TNT Opts To Not Move Forward With Titans TV Series

7 January 2016 11:11 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While fans of DC Comics properties are certainly enjoying an embarrassment of riches when it comes to seeing their favorite heroes dominate the small screen, sometimes disappointment abounds. We now have word that TNT has chosen not to move forward with the live action Titans TV series. As unfortunate as the news is, it should not come as too much of a shock since it has been nearly a year since any real news has been reported regarding the ill fated series.

It seemed the network was originally enthused about proceeding with the series’ development when TNT president Kevin Reilly told TV Line the following last May:

“I think it’s going to end up being a very, very interesting offering. I think it’s going to be excellent.”

More recently, Reilly said these heartbreaking words at TCA:

“We decided it wasn’t where we wanted to go.”

Had the series come to fruition, »
