It’s been 24 hours since David Ayer unleashed his vision for The Joker. Jared Leto’s heavily tattooed, Marilyn Manson inspired take on the character has left hardcore fans perplexed. The reaction online has been a healthy mix of love, hate, and downright disdain. However, some of the cooler heads have prevailed giving us some interesting insights on this new version of the classic character celebrating his 75th Birthday this week. Let’s take a moment, take a deep breath, and try to find some perspective on this polarizing first image.

Damian Wayne has established himself as Robin, but he and Batman continue to clash over the latter’s rule of not killing criminals. But when he becomes the recruiting target of a criminal secret society called the Court of Owls, the Dynamic Duo face their greatest challenge yet…each other!
Never have I watched a DC animated film and said ‘What?’ every few moments before this one, because Batman vs. Robin in my is view one of their worst offerings (it is just as bad if not worse than Son of Batman and Justice League: War) in recent years. When I first heard the title of this film, I was pretty excited about it because I »

This weekend, at East Coast Comicon, I got the chance to chat with writer Brandon Montclare (Fearsome Four) and artist Amy Reeder (Madame Xanadu) about their work, especially on their creator owned title Rocket Girl, which is published by Image Comics as well as sci-fi, action scenes, and much more. Rocket Girl is about a teen cop from the future named DaYoung Johansson, who travels back to 1980s New York to prevent an evil corporation from inventing technology to basically take over the world.
Sound on Sight: So why should readers pick up the second arc of Rocket Girl?
Amy Reeder: If you loved the first one, it’s so worth it to keep reading. We had originally planned to make our story five issues, but we were talking and realized that wasn’t enough time to tell this story. You have to develop the characters first so people can »

The theory that Batman and Robin are gay first appeared when a comic book hating psychologist attempted to convince the government that they were having a negative impact on youngsters. He believed there was a risk that the Caped Crusader’s adventures might cause children to become homosexuals, which was still seen as “wrong” in the 1950s.
None of that is true of course, and Bruce Wayne’s relationship with Dick Grayson – and the other kids who have been Robin over the years – has always been strictly platonic. If anything, they have a father/son relationship, which has evolved into a friendship.
Unfortunately for the Dynamic Duo, there have been a lot of comics over the years that have contained some very weird and unexpectedly sexual moments between the two. Even before the Batman TV series starring Adam West and Burt Ward, Batman’s adventures on the page began »

Rumour has it that the new Batman movie will borrow from iconic graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns, featuring a grey-haired and jaded caped crusader.

The grim-and-gritty Batman won’t be the only version of the caped crusader we’ll be seeing in 2016. Speaking at Batman panel at the Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, North Carolina this weekend [via Consequence of Sound], Adam West and Burt Ward announced that they are lending their voices to reprise the roles of Batman and Robin, respectively for an animated film. Ward told the audience that the movie would be 90 minutes, and it would possibly be one of two animated project they’re working on. I’m a big fan of the 1966 Batman, and I’m interested to see how they’ll be handling the animation and tone for this upcoming feature. Presumably, it will still be lighthearted, but will the animation style emulate 1960s Saturday morning cartoon shows? Or will it be more modern? Either way, I’m incredibly excited to see more than one side of Batman next year. Here’s the video of the announcement. »

Fans of the classic 1960s Batman TV series have certainly been spoiled lately, what with the long-awaited home entertainment release of the show, in addition to a Batman ’66 comic book series, and a host of toys and other licensed merchandise.
Well, with the 50th anniversary on the horizon, now comes word that DC will commemorate the occasion with a feature length animated movie that will land in 2016 and see Adam West and Burt Ward reprising their roles as Batman and Robin. The Dynamic Duo broke the news themselves at the Mad Monster Party in North Carolina, and you can check out the video right here courtesy of Consequence of Sound (via SlashFilm)…
Are you looking forward to the return of West and Ward as Batman and Robin?

The pair announced that the "full-length 90-minute" movie would be released in time for the 50th anniversary of 1966's Batman.
Speaking at Mad Monster Con, Ward said: "You can look forward to a new, animated Batman full-length 90-minute feature coming out on the 50th anniversary.
"One of possibly two, but for sure one, that Adam and I are going to be doing the voices for."
The potential 2016 release date of the new animated film would also coincide with the arrival of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Modern cinema throws up few things you can depend on but Christopher Nolan is one of them. Released this week on DVD and Blu-ray is Interstellar, the director’s tenth feature. In celebration we look back at a few of his most important films and examine what helps the Englishman stand out from the Hollywood crowd.
Nolan’s breakout feature was Memento, based on brother and long-term writing partner Jonathan’s short story Memento Mori. Focused on Leonard, who suffers from short-term memory loss, as he hunts for his wife’s killer the film uses character as it’s base and also plays with narrative convention in telling its story backwards. These methods bring out the human side of Leonard’s struggles and frustrations drawing empathy from the audience, an emotional connection that has continued through the director’s work. »

Lost was a necessary sacrifice. Much like how we suffered through the total mess of Batman And Robin to get the gritty reboot of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films, or how your town will sacrifice a virginal Catholic police man in a giant wicker effigy to ensure a good harvest in the coming year, Lost died on its feet so that many more could live. But at least it burnt brightly and loudly before then.
Ultimately, nobody was particularly happy with how Lost turned out. Fans who had been tuning into ABC’s hit mystery series from the very beginning didn’t get all the answers they wanted, and the few they were granted access to were far from satisfying. By that point they’d gone through so many plot twists and time travel shenanigans that they were few and dedicated compared to the blockbuster viewership it had at the start. »
