Make no mistake – the box says Batman 3, but this is clearly the DC response to the Marvel Lego Super Heroes game from last year. With over 150 heroes and villains, an oncoming storm of Dlc, and a sweeping plotline, this is the biggest look at the Lego DC Universe yet.
The title says “Beyond Gotham” and they follow up straight away – the opening video features the six Lantern Corps that aren’t green. Sinestro, Star Sapphire, Saint Walker and Larfleeze start off bickering but are quickly defeated and put under the thrall of the game’s Big Bad, Brainiac. In only the opening levels of the game the narrative moves from an underground battle against Killer Croc to a outer space where Batman and Robin team up with fellow Justice Leaguers Flash, Cyborg and the Martian Manhunter.
All the Lego games bear some common concepts – the characters fight and puzzle their »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…
“Jurassic World Lego sets will hit store shelves next year, as part of Universal’s merchandising plan for the film. Some images of the the new dinosaurs included in those sets have leaked, and they include the all-white D-Rex, a Tyrannasaurs Rex, and a few velociraptors.”

This morning saw the first images relating to the dinosaurs to feature in Jurassic World, the fourth instalment in the Jurassic Park series. Unfortunately, it was the Lego toys coinciding with the release. All we can use to imagine what our new favourite dinosaur film will include are chunky, colourful creatures with big circles attached to their heads (and, in a few instances, small fart-bubbles indicating their gases smell like little brown teddies). A white D-Eex? Bright orange and green raptors? »

Christopher Nolan recently sat down for a chat with The Daily Beast. In this chat, they explored several topics that spanned everything from his position in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film, his responses to some of the critique of Interstellar, and how producing Man of Steel helped inform his decisions on how to shoot the Americana setting shown in Interstellar.
The man responsible for relaunching Batman after the character had sputtered out with Batman and Robin, and whose vision for the iconic character transformed him into one of the hottest pop culture properties of the last 10 years, was asked about the new "new Batman." While some folks have made themselves willfully blind to the fact that Nolan is no longer intrinsically attached to the franchise- having stepped away from creative duties after Man of Steel- and have claimed that he had some sort of hand in »

Trevor Hogg explores both the dark and humorous side of Batman…
With the Blu-ray and DVD releases of the second season of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, season one of Young Justice and Beware the Batman: Dark Justice, the Warner Archive Collection showcases various Dark Knights who can appeal to children, teens and adults; they range from a helium gas-speaking superhero to a parental supervisor to a brooding vigilante.
A slight deviation from having unrelated adventures beginning each episode, the second season of Batman: The Brave and the Bold uses them as a teaser for a grand battle against the alien Starro which encompasses a two-part episode which occurs at the halfway point. Even with the massive destruction that ensues and the constant punches being thrown, an irreverent attitude prevails from the vibrant colour pallet of the production design and to the quips made by the characters which certainly »

There are countless celebrities who apparently have analogues in the fictional DC and Marvel comic book universes. The Avengers were once guests on David Letterman’s chat show, Batman and Robin tried to wrap their heads around the Paul Is Dead Beatles conspiracy theory, and Spider-Man teamed up with John Belushi to fight the Silver Samurai back in the seventies (all of those are things that actually happened, because comic books). What they could really use, though, is a Gok Wan, or a Trinny and Susannah.
It’s not like superhero costumes are the most dapper get ups in the first place. Even in a world of morphsuits and Lady Gaga, you’d get some funny looks walking down the street donning the Batman cowl, or clanking about in that Iron Man suit of armour. Still, the spandex outfits do the job, and everybody’s sort of accepted them as the norm now. »

This week's Dancing With The Stars was all about dynamic duos! From Bonnie and Clyde to Batman and Robin, the stars and their pro partners brought famous couples to life through dance, and it was one of the most enjoyable shows of the season so far.
Not only were the couples dressed up as famous duos, but it was revealed that there would also be a head-to-head dance off, pairing each couple against another in a series of three impromptu performances that could earn them extra points. However, the highest-scoring couple of the night would be totally safe from elimination, and wouldn't have to compete in the dance-off. The excitement was brewing right off the bat.
It was a fun »
Dancing with the Stars celebrated its Dynamic Duos night on Monday with the seven remaining couples fighting to move forward.
Dancing With The Stars Recap
Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev took on the personas of Bonnie and Clyde in a jazz routine. Despite the promise of the concept and Lea’s dancing chops, the routine somehow fell flat. Len Goodman didn’t think Lea took enough risks on the dance floor, while Julianne Hough took issue with Chigvintsev’s “dated” choreography. Overall, it was a capable but disappointing performance. Scores: 8+8+8+8=32
Michael Waltrip, who has defied the odds by remaining on the show into week 8, danced a foxtrot with Emma Slater. As the Tarzan to Emma’s Jane, Michael once again struggled to hit all of the moves in the choreography. The judges attempted to go easy on the Nascar driver during their remarks, but their true feelings about the performance came out in their scores. »
Tonight's elimination/performances show, kicked off with them ,getting right down to it with the performances. Lea Thompson & Artem Chigvintsev started things off with a Bonnie and Clyde Jazz routine that landed them a decent 32 out of 40 score from the judges. Michael Waltrip & Emma Slater rocked a Tarzan and Jane Foxtrot to get a very mediocre 25 score. Janel Parrish & Val Chmerkovskiy served up a beautiful Romeo and Juliet Contemporary number that turned out to be absolutely perfect with a 40 out 40 score from the judges! They also won immunity from being eliminated this week, since they got the highest scores of the night. Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd delivered a June and Johnny Cash Paso Doble routine for a very less than stellar 26 score. After a break, Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas hit the dance floor to deliver a Adam and Eve Contemporary number for a really great 38 score! Alfonso Ribeiro »
From spooky costumes to wild dances, here are the best, worst and weirdest moments from the 'DWTS' Halloween episode.
Monday night's episode of Dancing With The Stars gave us a number of things to get very excited about.

Also, the show ended in a surprisingly entertaining team competition, in which four couples went up against four other couples in a freestyle choreographed dance-off.
And finally, this was the week Len Goodman returned to the judges' panel, and he brought a whole lot of harsh criticism and technical know-how with him.
So let's take a look at some of the best, worst and weirdest moments of the evening.

It was Christopher Nolan‘s Batman Begins that set a new course for the DC film franchise following Joel Schumacher’s disastrous Batman and Robin. He stuck with the franchise through two more movies and helped kick off the new, cohesive DC Universe with Man of Steel, and is now helping to usher in a new Bat-era […]

As sequel fever spreads across Hollywood, there is at least one movie that no one ever hoped would receive an additional film: Batman and Robin, Joel Schumacher’s ill-conceived superhero flick that featured nipples on the Batsuit and, more problematically, no narrative consistency of which we were aware. Even Schumacher himself has admitted to the spectacular failure of the film, going so far as to place most of the blame squarely upon his own shoulders. But no movie must remain un-sequeled, and Batman and Robin is no exception; although its sequel will not be taking a cinematic form.
According to Bleeding Cool (via /Film), Schumacher is currently at work on a Batman and Robin sequel in comic book form. The twelve-issue series will be drawn by Dustin Nguyen and will follow Batman Triumphant, the unmade third film in the Schumacher trilogy. The plot of that film was reportedly supposed to »

There are plenty of Batman fans who’d like to forget the Joel Schumacher films ever existed. Even the director himself sounds apologetic when he talks about his second one, admitting he “didn’t do a good job.” But now he’s actually going back to revisit that world, in comic book form. A new report indicates Schumacher […]

One of the first major tentpole films in development that this site covered way back in the late 1990s may finally see the light of day.
After directing both the successful "Batman Forever" and the widely derided "Batman & Robin," filmmaker Joel Schumacher was originally slated to helm a third film entitled "Batman: Triumphant" based on a script by Mark Protosevich.
Schumacher has previously stated that following Tim Burton's two films, the studio pushed him to make Batman more family and merchandise friendly - especially in regards to "Batman and Robin". Schumacher want to go darker though, and after the widespread rejection towards "Batman & Robin" the hope was 'Triumphant' would allow him to do that. Unfortunately the project never made it out of development.
At the time it was rumored The Scarecrow would serve as the villain, with his fear toxin allowing for Batman to have visions of The Joker. »

The team of Batman and Robin are together again! But what is the new dynamic for this crimefighting duo now that Damian has super powers of his own? So, Batman's trip to Apokalips will obviously be a success, but Damian will return to the land of the living with powers (making him perhaps the most formidable Robin to date). It's interesting that DC Comics would decide to reveal this now, but it's sure to get fans talking! How do you guys feel about the return of Bruce Wayne's son and the fact that he's been given something of an upgrade? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts on this latest development in the usual place »

After Batman Returns hit theaters back in 1992, director Tim Burton started working on ideas for a third film featuring the Dark Knight. This new entry was set to see the arrival of Robin (to be played by Marlon Wayans), but a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff went down (Warner Bros. felt Batman Returns was too dark for families and not a good film for selling toys – and Burton’s third film was going to be even darker, apparently) and the director eventually exited the project. Joel Schumacher came in to replace him, and the results were Batman Forever and Batman and Robin. However, there are bits and pieces of things designed for Burton’s unmade film floating around on the Internet – including this piece of concept art for the costume Wayans would have worn...

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…
“I think since Batman that I’ve been disinvited from Comic-Con for 20 years. I see the comment sections on all you guys. I just met Adam West there [referring to behind the Nycc main stage] and I apologized to him. Sorry about the nipples on the suit. Freeze, freeze, I apologize for that.” – George Clooney
“I never did a sequel to any of my movies, and sequels are only made for one reason: to make more money and sell more toys. I did my job. But I never got my ass in the seat right.” – Joel Schumacher

Joel Schumacher attended the Hamptons International Film Festival this weekend where he accepted an award for his lifetime of work including acclaimed or beloved films like "The Lost Boys," "Falling Down," " The Client," "St. Elmo's Fire," and "A Time to Kill".
Yet conversation often drifts back towards his two Batman films - 1995's highly successful but critically mixed "Batman Forever," and 1997's infamous "Batman and Robin" which famously tanked the franchise for nearly a decade. In an interview with Variety at the event, he reflected on both projects.
"I was never able to go into the darkness. Because of "Batman Returns," families had objected that it was too adult, which is no criticism of Tim Burton's. When they offered it to me, I went to Tim and said, »
