Every Batman Movie Ranked, Worst to Best (Photos)

1 July 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Batman v Superman” didn’t get great reviews, and fans are divided on it. But we have our definitive opinions on it and we’re ready to lay it all out there. So how does it compare to the other live-action Batman movies? There’s a long and partially proud tradition of “Batman” movies out there, after all. “Batman v Superman” may not be all everyone hoped it would be, but the Bat’s record on film is hardly perfect. Let’s see where the new film ranks in the annals of theatrically released, live-action “Batman” movies. 12. “Batman and Robin” (1949) is just an abysmal experience, »

Will 'The Neon Demon' director give us the Batgirl movie we deserve?

27 June 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Critics aren't quite sure what to make of Nicholas Winding Refn’s new film The Neon Demon, but it's safe to say he's got vision. And now he's apparently turned his sights to the DC Comics' character Batgirl. Could he make a live-action film happen? The Danish director (who also did Bronson, Only God Forgives, and Drive) was speaking to Business Insider to promote The Neon Demon, which stars Elle Fanning, and spoke about how he once wanted to tackle DC's biggest female superhero: But this isn't the first time the Danish filmmaker has wanted to make a movie with a strong female lead. After the release of his popular 2011 thriller "Drive," Refn said he really wanted to make a Wonder Woman movie. That's not going to happen quite yet. When Gal Gadot stars as the superhero in her standalone movie, out in the summer of 2017, Patty Jenkins ("Monster") will have the reins. »

Recast Alert! Find Out Who's the New Poison Ivy on Gotham

22 June 2016 7:38 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

There's a new Poison Ivy in Gotham City—and an explanation. Gotham has aged up the character of Ivy Pepper, who will eventually become the Batman villain Poison Ivy (infamously played by Uma Thurman in Batman and Robin on the big screen), and cast Maggie Geha, 28, in the role. Clare Foley, 14, played the character in the first two seasons. According to Fox, the big change happens when Ivy encounters a monster from Indian Hill. The character suddenly finds herself reborn and "one step closer to the DC villain she is destined to become: Poison Ivy." She's now a 19-year-old woman who has taken control of her full power of charms and sets her sighs on Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz). Geha will be a »

Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy vs. The McU Captain America Trilogy

18 June 2016 6:56 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Which is the best comic book inspired trilogy? Christopher Nolan’s revered Dark Knight trilogy has become the gold standard for turning comic book super heroes into serious art. However, the three McU Captain America films have been called the best of all the McU franchises. Both are excellent trilogies. Which is better? Let’s take a look.

When Christopher Nolan took over the Batman cinematic project, he revived a character who had been diminished in his previous film appearance (Batman and Robin) and resurrected the Bat, showing the world that comic book films could stand up with other genres in terms of artistic quality, critical praise, box office clout and franchise sustainability. He helped make comic adaptations credible. In his own words, he said, “We wanted to show things that people wouldn’t expect to see in that kind of film”.

So, why did he give up being a hero? Well, upon realising that his age is catching up to him, Bruce comes to the conclusion that new Robin Jason Todd (who takes way too much satisfaction in hurting criminals) is still a long way off from being able to take over as Gotham City's new protector.  After The Joker escapes from Arkham Asylum, a critically wounded Batman pleads with Jason not to go after the Clown Prince of Crime, but he disobeys his mentor and is brutally murdered as a result.  Honestly, there's a lot more to The Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade that we've told you about here as if provides »

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Batman Forever’ introduced batnipples

16 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It was 21 years ago today that Batman Forever opened in theaters, and batnipples made their debut on the big screen. Director Joel Schumacher is well aware of how controversial adding nipples to the batsuit was, but he was initially surprised by the backlash. Here’s what he told Variety a couple years ago: You introduced nipples to the Batsuit. Were you surprised they became so controversial? Yes, I was like, “Are you kidding me?” I think that will be on my gravestone. It’s how I’ll be remembered. Val Kilmer, replacing Michael Keaton, played the Caped Crusader in this third installment of Tim Burton’s Batman series. Though not as maligned as the follow-up, Batman and Robin, Batman Forever didn’t win over critics like Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight later would — but that didn’t stop it from being a behemoth at the box office. Batman Forever was the second highest grossing film of 1995, behind only Toy Story. It broke Jurassic Park’s record for highest opening weekend gross of all time. Other notable June 16 happenings in pop culture history: • 1950: Vincente Minnelli’s Father of the Bride was released. The original starred Elizabeth Taylor as the bride-to-be and Spencer Tracy as the lawyer dad. The remake starring Steve Martin hit theaters in 1991. • 1960: Psycho premiered in New York City at the DeMille Theater. • 1978: The musical movie Grease shoo-bop she wadda wadda-ed into theaters. • 1985: Falco’s “Rock Me Amadeus” was released as a single in Germany. It was released in the U.S. the following March and made Falco the first German-speaking artist to get a No. 1 single on the U.S. charts. • 1986: The Smiths’ third studio album, The Queen Is Dead, was released. Among the songs on the record is “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out,” which was later memorably featured in (500) Days of Summer. • 1989: Ghostbusters II opened in theaters. • 1990: Rosette song “It Must Have Been Love,” from the Pretty Woman soundtrack, hit No. 1 on the U.S. singles chart. • 1999: Phil Collins was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. • 2010: Hot in Cleveland, TV Land’s first original scripted series, premiered. »

Singer Discusses His 'X-men' Future, Takes Veiled Jab At Zack Snyder, And Talks The Genre As A Whole

31 May 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Director Bryan Singer has now made four X-men films, dating back to the year 2000. With X-men: Apocalypse he told his biggest, most large-scale story featuring Marvel's iconic mutants yet. By all accounts, though, Apocalypse may be Singer's last ride with Xavier and company- at least for now. In a chat with the La Times, Singer opened up a bit about the comic book genre, how social media has affected his filmmaking process, and his X-men future.

Let's start off with the big question, then work our way around to the other topics covered. That question is: Is X-men: Apocalypse The End Of The Road For Him With The Franchise?

"For me, this is not only the finale of the trilogy that started with "X-Men: First Class," it’s the finale of six movies. But I also call it an 'in-betwee-quel' -- not a sequel or a prequel -- because it »

Mfr Explores The Dceu's Road To Ruin: Column #3

20 May 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm. This entry will look at Batman Begins, Superman Returns, Green Lantern, and more. We'll explore all of the interesting parallels and forks in the road that brought us to where the Dceu is today. 

Last week, we left off in 2004. Warner Bros. was preparing to relaunch its two DC Comics icons Superman and Batman, after flirting with jumping straight to a Batman Versus Superman movie. They backpedalled on that idea and, instead, poured all of their resources into re-establishing the characters as solo entities first, with the hope that a team-up or clash would eventually be in the cards.

The first of these new films would be Batman Begins. Christopher Nolan, fresh off of critical successes with a few smaller films, »

We'll explore all of the interesting parallels and forks in the road that brought us to where the Dceu is today. 

Last week, we left off in 1997. Batman And Robin came out and was a huge black eye for Warner Bros., effectively turning what was a once promising franchise into a punchline. It was the fourth installment of that series, and it killed Batman almost as definitively as the fourth Superman film had grounded the Man of Steel exactly 10 years earlier. 

But before we can look at how Warner Bros. planned to rebound its DC properties post-1997, we have to »

Here's Funny Or Die's Take On Batman V Superman

2 May 2016 12:02 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Say what you will about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it's a cultural phenomenon that likely to remain forever entrenched in the superhero zeitgeist of the current decade. Case in point, Funny or Die has a new animated skit that takes an alternate path to the conflict between Batman and Superman. Some of the more enthusiastic Dawn of Justice detractors might actually try to argue that this is a better plot than what Zack Snyder and Chris Terrio delivered. Why Superman Is The Most Dangerous Superhero (Superman V Batman: The Unauthorized Adventures) from Dan Abramson After once again successfully vanquishing the Joker, Batman and Robin are rudely interrupted by Superman, whose late arrival spells trouble for the Dark Knight's boy wonder sidekick.

Deadpool: Tim Miller & Simon Kinberg and Ed Skrein Interviews

28 April 2016 9:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

The director, producer and villain of Deadpool, on comics, 80s movies, and Jason Statham...

What a lovely surprise Deadpool was. Its rebellious, twisted take on the traditional superhero movie proved to be effective, crowd-pleasing and thoroughly entertaining. It felt like a superhero film filtered through an 80s action movie, with its hyperviolence, gore, revenge plot and tortured clever dick anti-hero.

Back in April (which is now when I’m writing this but not when you’re reading this because this will be now for you now) we were invited to interview director Tim Miller and producer Simon Kinberg (together), and Ed Skrein, who played Ajax. They were relatively brief chats, though, so we’ve chucked them in together to save you a click. You can’t say that this free website doesn’t give you value for money.

Now, appreciating that Simon Kinberg is the man with the answers about what’s going to happen in the Fox Marvel universe, you might be expecting some pressing for clues. But with a two month gap between interview and publication, it seemed likely to me that anything I could dig up would likely be uncovered by someone else before we could publish it anyway. I thought I’d be better off trying to find out some stuff about Deadpool instead. When you get to the bit where Miller responds to my theory that Deadpool is like an 80s action film, I think you’ll agree that I made a right and good decision.

Tim Miller and Simon Kinberg interview

The success of Deadpool after all of these years of work must have been very vindicating. Do you think the wait, the urban legends and the reputation of Deadpool as almost the outlaw superhero film, helped with its success?

Tim Miller: I think it had people rooting for the film, for sure. But I feel like the nature of the film itself. I often wonder, if I wasn’t part of the movie making process, do Deadpool fans feel like ‘oh, this was our little secret, this was our character and now everybody loves it and so it’s not so special and cool for us’. I hope they don’t feel that way. We brought it to a broader audience. I mean he felt like a character that you root for, that was an outsider, and I think that and the struggles - which are high class problems, to actually have a movie that’s even being considered to be made is pretty awesome – but I feel like that’s intrinsic in the character more than the process.

Simon Kinberg: I actually think that the timing was right, not that that was the intention, but that five years ago, or ten years ago, the culture wouldn’t have been ready for a movie that commented on other superhero movies in the same way. Where now, there’s such a saturation of these kinds of films, and there’s such a fluency with the audience in these kinds of movies that they understood the jokes in a way that they probably would not have as a mass audience five or ten years ago. And so even though it wasn’t intended that it would be…

Tm: I still think it would have been a great movie.

Sk: It would have been a great movie.

Tm: Not because I made it, just because it was a great script.

Sk: I just think that a mass audience wouldn’t have been able to laugh in unison in the same way.

You’ve made a film that’s an action movie and a comedy movie. The nature of comedy, particularly with the modern trend of ad libbing, thrives on spontaneity. So how does that combine with the nuts and bolts of making a big action film?

Tm: I think we left a lot of room for it. When you go into the process with Ryan Reynolds, you know he’s gonna do that. You’ve got to leave some room for it. And then, once we’d talked to Tj (Miller) for a while, we realised you’ve got to leave a lot of room for that, because Tj did not say the same line twice, which was just this treasure trove of material in the edit bay, and it really kept everything moving along.

The writers were on set every day to help respond to it. Because, you write something in a script but then you see a location, then you see how people move through space and it changes the way the jokes work. We just built it in because we knew it was gonna happen.

One of the things I really liked about this film is that it reminded me of some of the movies I loved from the 1980s, the action films of that time. Were then any movies from this period that were influential, or am I imagining it?

Tm: I think you’re imagining it. Maybe.

Sk: Well, you know what I would say? Because I grew up on those movies and those are my favourite films, and the big action movies of the 80s were R rated, much more muscular films, like the Die Hard movies and the Lethal Weapon movies and the Terminator movies, totally different than Deadpool in so many different ways, but they had a sort muscularity to them and they were R rated, and people spoke like real grownups speak, they swear. And I think some of that, and the violence, there’s ripples of it in Deadpool.

Tm: You know what else though? I think before the ages of digital effects where you could have an entire city lifted in the air and dropped on the planet, the approach to visual effects and action was a little different. And we didn’t have the budget to lift a city in the air and drop it on a planet, so our approach to what the action was had to be a little more measured. Probably like a lot of the limitations they had to deal with back then.

I had to fight to get that fucking carrier collapse in there and that was like the only moment of scope we had, the rest of it is fairly contained.

Ed Skrein Interview

So, you’re the villain in Deadpool. You have to pretend to enjoy torturing Ryan Reynolds.

Pretend to enjoy?

Ha. When you’re playing a character like this, do you try to humanise him in your head, or do you just cut loose and say ‘this guy is evil’?

There’s a reason that people do evil stuff. There’s a thought process in everybody’s head that when they think to do horrific atrocities and violent acts, there’s a reason, an order, a logic in their heads, that we don’t see. Because we have compassion and responsibility.

That lack of compassion is what it was about, for me. To form Ajax it was less about trying to be evil and be some fucked up guy. It was just like ‘I’m gonna take away these things and just see what’s left’. And then justify it, by saying “I’m making you a fucking superhero, dude. You should be thanking me. I made you immortal.” I say it in the movie. All he needs to do is keep his mouth shut. You’re getting me into character now.

When I started acting it was hard. I’d let these characters stay with me and get all twisted up and it kind of fucked with my head. But not for Ajax, man. They’d say cut after I’d been being horrible and had been torturing Ryan Reynolds, and then I’d skip off to the make-up department and gossip with them about what they did on the weekend.

So it wasn’t too torturous.

Now, you’re from England, like myself. And, for me at least, when I was a kid I didn’t have access to American comics like a lot of people do now. How is your relationship with comics? Do you read a lot?

Yeah, man. I read them a lot. I did have access to them, because I would go to Forbidden Planet in central London, I would go to… there was one in Camden, I can’t remember what it’s called.

Oh, it’s the Judge Dredd… Mega City One?

It’s called Mega City! On Inverness Street, I believe. Yeah. Inverness Street Market, Camden Taaahn. *laughs* Lovely.

I was going to the conventions at the Barbican and at Baker Street when I was a kid. I was collecting Spawn and X-Men from back then and loving Ninja Turtles and Thundercats on the side. There was a period of about 10 years when I stopped collecting comics. When I got Deadpool I was like ‘This is an opportunity’. This is what I call research, very important resources, and so tax deductible items.

[Laughs]

I had to explain that to my accountant. This is very important for my character, this is character research.

But it was so great to get back into the comics. At the moment I’m reading X-Force, which is a phenomenal piece. You know, X-23 and Phantom-x. Two of my new favourite characters, I love them, created by Grant Morrison who is a writer that I love. X-Force is one of my favourite series of all time. I’d love to play King Mob. I’d love for them to make it, even if I don’t play it. I’ll be there, opening weekend.

I know Seth Rogen is doing The Boys, and The Boys is probably my favourite comic series ever. Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie. I wonder if Simon Pegg would play it.

I suppose you talked about the English and American side of things, falling in love with the American classic superheroes was wonderful. But when they started talking in your accent? You know, Billy Butcher is from Hackney. I live in Hackney. Billy Butcher talks in slang that we talk in. I read it and I think ‘Americans must be so confused by what he’s saying. He talks in cockney rhyming slang.’ So, it’s an amazing feeling to have that. Writers such as Garth Ennis, they’re just doing incredible things.

I’m very proud of them. Garth’s run on Punisher: Max and Morrison’s stuff on Batman And Robin is just fucking amazing. It’s a wonderful thing.

Before you leave, you’ll no doubt want to know what their favourite Jason Statham films are. Tim Miller and Simon Kinberg both told me their favourite Statham film is Snatch, while Ed Skrein’s favourite is Spy.

Thank you very much, Tim Miller, Simon Kinberg and Ed Skrein.

Christopher Nolan and his impact on comic book movies

24 April 2016 4:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

Comic book movies are getting darker and grittier in some quarters. That's down to Christopher Nolan, right? Well, not quite...

If someone were to say the words 'Nolanisation of comic book movies' to you, it might conjur up images incredibly serious, laughter-free movies with a dark visual palette. The word 'gritty' would be used. Furthermore, Christopher Nolan has arguably had as big an impact on comic book movies as anyone over the last decade, and many are keen to follow in his path. Thus, goes the theory, comic book movies - and blockbusters in general - are favouring dark and gritty.

And yet, on rewatching The Dark Knight trilogy, it becomes immediately apparent that Christopher Nolan's own work doesn't entirely align with this.

My own personal frame of reference is, as ever, Doctor Who. In the 1980s, two stories – Earthshock and The Caves Of Androzani – became »

Mike Gold: Dark Scooby & Freedom Fightin’ Fred

20 April 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

Just when I decided that maybe DC’s “Rebirth” might possibly be worthy – yes, I know, I had the same hopes for Batman v Superman – the other shoe dropped. Back in the 1990s I perceived DC as a centipede, with (obviously) 100 shoes to drop. Now, I’m thinking millipede.

In case you haven’t heard, DC decided to “reimagine” (lord how I hate that word) the classic Hanna-Barbera characters. Sort of like what Archie Comics just did with Archie but, in this case, totally needless.

I have little if any strong attachment to the H-b characters. Even as a kid I knew cheap, shitty animation and sub-standard writing. I loved Rocky and Bullwinkle, which employed even cheaper animation, but after mildly enjoying the first season of The Flintstones I decided life was too short – I was 10 years old – and »

Watch 'Kimmel' Quiz Pedestrians About Avengers, U.S. Presidents

Jimmy Kimmel Live returned to the streets of Los Angeles Wednesday to find out whether Americans could name more Marvel Avengers than United States presidents.

Though the bit offered some hilarious, disheartening, "Lie Witness News"-like moments — like the one guy who named eight Avengers and then jazz saxophonist Grover Washington as a president — the majority of its participants were equally uninformed about both the Avengers and American presidents.

One bearded man listed Batman and Robin as Avengers, then added Dragnet and Hawaii Five-o because "they were avengers." When asked to name some presidents, »
