(Cbr) Batman, Robin and Catwoman took over Hall H, and fans couldn't have been happier. Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar headlined Thursday's San Diego Comic-Con International panel celebrating the Nov. 11 launch of "Batman '66: The Complete Television Series" on Blu-ray. "Fans always ask me, 'When can we own the series? When is it coming to [Blu-ray]?'" West told the Hall H crowd, adding that he is now very happy to have an answer for those patient fans. Moderator and Los Angeles radio personality Ralph Garman introduced the panelists -- Newmar was escorted on stage by two "Henchman" wearing masks -- then West surprised fans by giving a shout out to another Catwoman in the crowd -- Lee Meriwether -- and then treated the excited crowd to both behind-the-scenes stories and clips from the remastered episodes. As much as fans were excited to see the celebrities on stage, »

Dark Horse, the elder statesman of independent comics, continues to show no signs of slowing down during this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Even though Marvel now holds the rights to Star Wars, its biggest licensed comics property, Dark Horse struck back by announcing a several creator owned titles in different genres as well as an expansion to the Mignolaverse and a sequel to one of the most beloved novels of the past century. Dark Horse also won some Eisners in a wide variety of categories showing the company’s comics appeal to many types of readers from kids to people who wouldn’t normally read comics.
1. Hellboy and the Bprd Miniseries
Even though Batman has gotten most of the publicity, another comics character is celebrating a big anniversary. 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Hellboy’s first appearance in the Seed of Destruction miniseries by Mike Mignola and scripted by John Byrne. »

With San Diego Comic Con in full swing at the moment, it makes sense that Warner Bros. would have some new footage of Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham to show off this weekend.
In the newly released trailer, the Justice League is summoned in order to save Green Lantern and the Martian Manhunter from The Joker and his partners in evil. The traditional humor of the Lego series of games is on full display here, as Superman and Wonder Woman are pulled from their date and Batman and Robin roast some ducks in order to make the journey to space.
While this trailer helps set up the first part of Lego Batman 3, there is more to the story here than the traditional battle between good and evil. A threat from intergalactic foe Brianiac will require the Justice League and the Legion of Doom to form an uneasy alliance. While the »

Earlier tonight, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment held a panel and a world premiere screening for their upcoming animated adventure Batman: Assault on Arkham at Comic-Con. During the panel, the studio announced the new titles that will debut in 2015, Batman Vs. Robin and Justice League: Gods and Monsters.
Bruce W. Timm will return to direct Batman Vs. Robin, which will also feature the Court of Owls. While no story details were given, it's believed that this will be an origin story featuring Talon and the Court of Owls, possibly adapted straight from Scott Snyder's comic book. In Court of Owls, Batman and Robin don't actually square off against one another, although there is a bit of tension between the duo and Nightwing. It's believed that this may also be a completely original story based on those characters, but that has not been confirmed.
Here's what we've just learned from the Batman: Assault On Arkham panel at Sdcc: DC/WB's next animated feature films will be Batman Vs. Robin, which will also feature the Court Of Owls, and an original story by Bruce Timm who'll also return to direct -- Justice League: Gods And Monsters. Now as anyone who's read Scott Snyder's Court Of Owls arc will know, Batman and Robin don't square off in the story (although there is a bit of tension between he and Nightwing) so this will probably be either an original story featuring Talon and the Court Of Owls, or just a very loose adaptation. The next movie is Gods And Monsters, and will definitely be an original, which Bruce Timm will write and direct. We're fresh out of details on 'em for now, but please speculate in the usual place. »

Marvel’s Ant-man hits theaters next summer July 17, 2015 and as this is the week of Comic-Con, Marvel has unveiled the first poster for the film.
For more on the history of this super hero, read Here.
Although the character of Ant-Man is somewhat overshadowed by Spider-Man and the mutants of X-Men he predates all of them and is one of the cornerstones of the ever-expanding Marvel universe. A few months after the debut of the Fantastic Four, the forerunner of Marvel, Atlas comics, published “the Man in the Ant Hill” in Tales to Astonish number 27. The title was frequently the home of invading giant “beasties” and monstrous creatures, »

It’s an argument forced to the fore every time a mindless blockbuster reaps a bucket-load of cash – movie critics are woefully out of touch with what audiences really want.
Now it is a little rich. The “leave your brain at the door” argument holds little water and really only serves to show how a good chunk of the film-going public have little objectivity. Nevertheless, the issue does raise a very good point; even if the critical body savages a film it does little to dent its box office potential.
People tend to make their film-going choices long before release, letting notoriously manipulative marketing and the endorsement of friends influence their decision over anything else. The members of the audience who are more receptive to the ratings presented on the likes of RottenTomatoes are the more film-literate fans (us). We eye-up projects years in advance, but will steer clear »

It has taken quite a while, but over time science fiction has become one of the most respected genres in movie history. Of course this has not been an easy journey and there has been more than one pitfall along the way (cough cough…Batman And Robin). However, there have been many films, directors, stars and characters that have paved the way for the golden age of Hollywood blockbusters that we currently live in.
To celebrate the release (and already-enormous success) of Transformers: Age Of Extinction, we will be counting down some of the greatest allies Optimus Prime and the rest of the Autobots have to thank for their box office victories. Yes, I am of course referring to their bionic brethren that have weaved a legacy throughout cinematic history in some of the most brilliant (and in some cases underrated) science fiction films of all time. Although the classic »

It’s safe to say the first annual Batman Day was a success for Barnes and Noble Bookstore at Parks Mall in Arlington, TX. Crowds of children and their parents were in attendance to celebrate the anniversary of the Dark Knight’s 75th birthday. Although the super hero’s first appearance was in the May 1939 issue of Detective Comics, its publisher DC decided to postpone the big celebration until July 23rd.
Participants at Barnes and Noble were given a bag featuring the 75th anniversary Batman logo on one side and the cover image of the limited edition Detective Comics #27 being handed out at the event. The issue featured a reprint of the original debut of the Caped Crusader and a modern re-telling of the story as well.
Each bag included the comic, one of four different masks the child could choose from, bookmarks, and two posters that featured important graphic »

The contradiction in film criticism certainly does not go unnoticed. Sure, there are countless films that are praised and applauded for its excellence in quality and creativity. Unfortunately, the overlooked cinema fare that deserves just as much attention (more so than some of the recognized critically-acclaimed selections on an impressive selection of critics’ and moviegoers’ radars) get lost in the proverbial shuffle. It is simply the professional hazard of the movie industry because not every well-received and standout gem will get its rightful due come major awards season in Hollywood.
Just how many times have we as movie reviewers and/or movie fans become indignant when we realized that the special piece of entertainment we personally and critically cherished came up short and empty in expectations? Again, every smart kid in the classroom cannot get a gold star as we remain a competitive society in the world of celluloid superiority. »

This year at Comic-Con, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is occuping the very prestigious Hall H on Thursday, July 24th at 6 pm to announce the details of the long-awaited Blu-Ray and DVD release of the iconic, fan favorite Batman: The Complete Television Series. In attendance to help Warner Bros. promote the release and flesh out its specs will be legendary actors Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman). Working to build up anticipation for the announcement ahead of Comic-Con, the studio recently released a sizzle reel – and boy is it terrific.
My generation missed the Batman TV series completely, but most of us are familiar with West’s campy Caped Crusader and Ward’s superlative-loving Robin. And now that a whole, horrific mess of legal problems has been figured out, I’ll finally get the chance to see the two do their thing when the Blu-Ray, containing »
