Christopher Nolan Likely Done With Superhero Films

14 July 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

In 2005, a little director named Christopher Nolan brought back the character of Batman in a big way with Batman Begins. Most recently, audiences had been subjected to the god-awful Batman and Robin, and mainstream viewers had all but dismissed the character as a big joke. However, with Batman Begins, Nolan proved that there were plenty of quality stories to tell with the character. A few years later, he brought the sequel, The Dark Knight, to the big screen, and took things to yet another level. Nolan brought things to a close with The Dark Knight Rises, marking the first legitimate conclusion I can think of to a superhero film series on the big screen.

In the time since then, Nolan’s renown has only grown. Original movies like Inception and Interstellar only cemented his place in cinema, proving that genre films can still be taken seriously. But what about superhero films? »

Wonder Woman Success Leaves Alicia Silverstone Clueless

30 June 2017 10:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Clueless star Alicia Silverstone seems to be a bit clueless when it comes to the success of Wonder Woman. Dceu's Wonder Woman is enjoying great success this summer, breaking records for female directors while also breaking records from within the Dceu, beating all those previous movies at the box office in a relatively short amount of time. Much of the success is due to word of mouth spreading that the movie is actually good, a good comic book movie that stands on its own with an emotional arch that is touching people in a real way. While almost everybody in Hollywood is praising Wonder Woman, some are a little indifferent about the accolades that the movie has been receiving.

Alicia Silverstone recently sat down with Variety and talked about the success of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman among other topics. 40-year old Silverstone shared her thoughts about Gadot's performance being »

Batman And Harley Quinn To Have A One Night Theatrical Release

25 June 2017 1:53 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

One of my favorite things about my childhood was watching Batman: The Animated Series and later The Adventures of Batman and Robin. The series ran from 1992 to 1995 developed by Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski and produced by Warner Bros. Animation. This easily may be the best animated adaptation of any super hero. For many fans out there even with Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale and Ben Affleck portraying the Dark Knight on the big screen, still consider Kevin Conroy as their caped crusader. Not to mention the iconic voice of Batman's greatest adversary, The Joker by Mark Hamill. To this day their voices are found in many animated films and video games alike. Batman: The Animated Series without a doubt helped grow the popularity of Batman. There is even an amazing podcast hosted by Dr. Andrea Letamendi and Brian Ward that is dedicated to »

Venom Movie To Feature Carnage

21 June 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Fans have been hungry for a standalone Venom movie for some time. Ever since it was first announced that the character would be showing up in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3, many wondered if this would be a lead-up to the character getting his own film. Sadly, Topher Grace was cast as the character, and by the end, he was completely dissolved in an explosion. We guess that’s one way for the studio to kill those dreams.

However, we’ve since learned that comic book characters have countless opportunities to correct the mistakes of the past. The Dark Knight Trilogy made up for the abysmal Batman and Robin, and Deadpool and Logan made up for the injustice that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine. As fans, all we really needed to do was wait for the right opportunity. Piggy-backing off of the great-looking Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony made their plans known to create their own pocket universe, and to kick that off, they’d be making a standalone Venom movie with Tom Hardy at the lead.

But who will Venom being going up against? Who better for him to take on than the fan favorite Carnage? According to THR, that may very well be who Venom goes up against. In the comics, Carnage is a man who — just like Eddie Brock — merges with the Venom symbiote. The main difference, however, is that the man, Cletus Kasady, is batsh*t crazy, and doesn’t have the same anti-hero title as Venom. Whereas Venom is kind of a dark gray, Carnage is pitch black as it gets, and given the R rating of the film, we think Sony has an opportunity to go all out with him.

In a world where there is no Spider-Man (though Amy Pascal recently said there’s always a chance), Carnage is a natural opponent to Venom, and we can’t wait to see what they bring with the character.

Are you excited to see Carnage join Venom? Let us know your thoughts down below!

Joel Schumacher Wanted To Make An Arkham Asylum Movie

20 June 2017 4:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s become incredibly popular to hate on the 1997 film Batman and Robin (Who am I kidding? It’s always been popular), and for good reason. The movie is complete and utter garbage. Based on everything Schumacher has said in the past, it was the perfect stew of the studio wanting to go forward no matter what, them having to gear the film towards selling toys, and Schumacher having a slight case of hubris on the heels of several successes.

All of this culminated in what many fans think may be one the worst superhero films of all time. While Batman Forever was at least tolerable in its camp, Batman and Robin was on a whole other level. Of course, it’s only because it was such a mammoth failure that the studio put Batman on ice before resurrecting it with Batman Begins, so every cloud has a silver lining. Had things turned out differently, who knows how many more camp-fests we would have gotten?

Related: Joel Schumacher Explains The Bat Nipples

In an extensive recounting of the making of Batman and Robin, director Joel Schumacher revealed that he did have an itch to direct another Batman-related film:

"I always wanted to do a whole Arkham movie, and did a scene at the end of Batman Forever when Jim is in a straitjacket and Nicole [Kidman] comes to see him. And it was just a nod to back to Arkham Asylum which I love, and I thought it would be fun to put the other villains up there.”

Of course, we never got to see that film, and only ended up with the stupid Batman and Robin instead. Not exactly a good tradeoff. However, given the immense power the toymakers seemed to have, it sounds like something that would have ended up in the dumps to begin with. At the end of the day, Batman and Robin may not have been the movie we deserved, but it was the one we needed to eventually allow Batman Begins to happen.

Exclusive: 'Batman & Robin' 20 Years Later -- Alicia Silverstone & Chris O'Donnell Look Back

20 June 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's been two decades since George Clooney donned Batman's cape and cowl to fight crime alongside Alicia Silverstone and Chris O'Donnell in director Joel Schumacher's Batman & Robin.

In honor of the film's 20th anniversary on Tuesday, Et's Denny Directo sat down with Silverstone and O'Donnell, who reflected on the cult classic and the film's famously over-the-top costumes.

"They made this like, plaster body mold of me and my entire face and every inch of my body," recounted O'Donnell, who starred as Robin, Batman's crime fighting partner. "Just watching the process of them build this costume and then all of a sudden show up on set one day-- when it was finished -- was like, 'Oh my God, I can't believe I'm going to put that on and be a superhero.'"

Batman 3: the planned batsuit for Michael Keaton

16 June 2017 7:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Jun 16, 2017

This early look at a Michael Keaton Batman Forever costume gives us a glimpse of what might have been.

Batman fans ask a lot of questions, but there's one that comes up more than others around here: "What if Tim Burton and Michael Keaton had done Batman Forever?"

See related  Better Call Saul season 3 episode 9 review: Fall Better Call Saul season 3 episode 8 review: Slip Better Call Saul season 3 episode 7 review: Expenses

Now we at least know a little bit more about what a Michael Keaton Batman 3 would have looked like, thanks to images of these early production models from early in Batman Forever's production.

The sculpt is by Jose Fernandez, who also sculpted Catwoman's cowl in Batman Returns and the Robin suit in Batman and Robin. The top two look like the "sonar" batsuit from Batman Forever, while the bottom resembles that film's primary costume.

Joel Schumacher Apologizes for ‘Batman and Robin,’ Explains the Bat Nipples

Batman & Robin is an objectively terrible movie, possibly still the worst superhero movie ever made. But it’s been 20 years now…can’t we all just relax? It’s two decades later and director Joel Schumacher is still apologizing for the garish, neon-soaked nightmare that is Batman & Robin. And while I’m willing to forgive him on some […]

It’s time for us to admit that Batman ’66 was awesome

14 June 2017 4:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen with some thoughts about Batman ’66…

Following the tragic passing of Adam West over the weekend I’ve been thinking a lot about Batman ’66, the TV show that entertained millions of children at the tail-end of the swingin’ sixties. Like many, it was my introduction to the character, and it genuinely might be my favourite iteration. I adore Tim Burton’s Batman ’89 and have mixed feelings about Batman Returns. I’m one of the few who likes Batman Forever, and I recently wrote about my appreciation of Batman & Robin. Batman Begins is one of the finest comic book movies ever made, I can take or leave The Dark Knight and I have no time for The Dark Knight Rises. I may not be keen on the direction Zack Snyder took The Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman: Dawn of the Justice, but I will admit that Ben Affleck was great in the role. »

Joel Schumacher Apologizes Again For Batman And Robin, Explains The Bat Nipples

13 June 2017 3:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Oh, Batman and Robin. This is a flick that’s gone down in history as one of the worst films ever made. Yes, you have movies like Fantastic Four and Green Lantern that people love to hate, but even those movies are g***amn Citizen Kane compared to the likes of Batman and Robin. Coming off of the likes of Batman Forever, fans definitely expected it to have more of a light tone, but no one could prepare them for the flurry of ice puns, bat nipples, sloppy filmmaking, and even sloppier writing.

Director Joel Schumacher has already gone on the record over a decade ago that he was sorry to those who hated the film, but fandom doesn’t forget atrocities like Batman and Robin. Speaking in an interview with Vice, Schumacher and the interviewer got blunt about the film and why it crashed and burned the way it did, »

Joel Schumacher Apologizes Again for ‘Batman and Robin’

13 June 2017 1:50 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Joel Schumacher feels really bad about abomination that was 1997’s “Batman and Robin.” He’s publicly spoken about before about the film that put an end to the franchise before Christopher Nolan’s “Batman Begins” reboot in 2005, apologizing to fans who felt slighted. In a new interview with Vice, the filmmaker revisits the disaster again, saying, “After ‘Batman & Robin,’ I was scum. It was like I had murdered a baby.” “Look, I apologize,” added Schumacher. “I want to apologize to every fan that was disappointed because I think I owe them that.” Also Read: 'Wonder Woman' and the 5 Words That Saved DC Movies. »

Adam West obituary

10 June 2017 6:56 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Legendary Batman actor struggled to throw off his alter ego in later career but remained beloved of fans

Adam West, who has died aged 88, was one of those actors who had to strive to “live down” not a failure but his greatest success. West, who was synonymous with the role of Batman in the vastly popular, campy TV series of 1966-68, could never escape his alter ego. Although he appeared in scores of films and television series throughout his long career, most reviewers, whatever the role, insisted on referring to him as “TV’s Batman”. However, it is fair to say that West, realising that he owed his fame to the Caped Crusader, was not averse to making oblique allusions to the character in some of his films, and often resorted to self-mockery.

The tall, well-built West, with chiselled good looks and a resonant baritone voice, was perfect casting for »

Why Adam West Was the One and Only Batman

10 June 2017 3:47 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

What's this? Could this be the end for Batman? Rest in peace, Adam West, the one and only Caped Crusader who truly defined the role. There have been so many incarnations of Batman over the years – on the page and on the screen – but Adam West was the one flesh-and-blood actor who ever did justice to the cape, on the Sixties TV series Batman.

West, who died of leukemia Friday at the age of 88, brought deadpan humor and old-school gallantry to the role, week after week; same Bat Time, same Bat Channel. »

Dennis O’Neil: The Sensation and Me

8 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

As I sit here, Wonder Woman is wowing ‘em about a mile away to the north, at the Palisades 21-Plex where you can see a movie (or 21 movies?) and then visit the

lots and lots of stores nearby in the five-floor mall and shop until your brain congeals. I guess that if I were a real comics geek I’d be there too because here we are, five days after the flick opened and I have not as yet seen it. Haven’t even seen a preview.

Shame?

Well, shame is too strong, especially since we plan to see it, and soon, especially if the guy who’s coming to fix the microwave arrives early enough for us to catch a showing. (“Our service provider will call at your home sometime between noon and infinity.”) We won’t have to grit our teeth and force ourselves into the theater, either. »

Halle Berry’s Catwoman movie gets an Honest Trailer

31 May 2017 9:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Warner Bros.’ critically acclaimed female-led DC comic book movie Wonder Woman rolling out in cinemas around the globe this week, Screen Junkies has released an Honest Trailer for Warner Bros.’ previous female-led DC comic book movie, the critically-derided 2004 Catwoman movie starring Halle Berry.

Before you see the best DC has to offer, revisit the worst in this sloppily directed, insanely edited, terribly written, ridiculously acted pile of cat barf that came out just one year before Batman Begins but feels more like the spiritual sequel to Batman and Robin. Catwoman – the movie that set the bar for women-lead-superhero movies ridiculously, ridiculously low.

Clueless Screening Reunites Alicia Silverstone and Breckin Meyer

29 May 2017 1:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Alicia Silverstone and Breckin Meyer held a mini-reunion at a screening for Clueless at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. The duo showed up unannounced, shocking everybody in attendance on Sunday night. Silverstone and Meyer starred in Clueless, a movie based on Jane Austen's novel Emma, a fact that Silverstone has recently revealed she did not know at the time of filming the movie in 1995. Silverstone portrayed Cher Horowitz, a well intentioned, but somewhat superficial rich girl based off of the title character Emma, while Myer portrayed Travis Birkenstock, a skater who is based on the Emma character Roger Martin.

Alicia Silverstone, now 40-years old, was 17 when the movie was made. She shared some of her stories while introducing the screening of Clueless at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. TMZ reports that Silverstone seemed to be taken aback by the audience's intense reaction to her crashing the screening. The »

John Ostrander: When He’s Wrong…

26 May 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I’m a dyed in the wool pinko commie leftie and these Trump days are not great for me. So I find watching the various commentators like Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Seth Meyers, Trevor Noah and especially Stephen Colbert to be therapeutic.

Into this mix, I can usually add Bill Maher on his weekly HBO show, Real Time. Maher is very attack orientated and each week he winds up his hour with a rant on a given topic., Usually, I find him really funny and incisive but Maher does have his blind spots. He is anti-religion – Islam in particular. He thinks the majority of American voters to be morons and says so, which I find to be a broad generalization, counter-productive and not true.

His past two shows featured rants that gored a pair of my oxen. One was on space exploration, such as terraforming and colonizing Mars, and the »

Rogue One Comic Will Reveal How Cassian and K-2So First Met

19 May 2017 3:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel Entertainment has announced a new Star Wars comic book is going to tell the back-story of Rogue One characters Cassian Andor and K-2So. This news comes after an announcement of a Mace Windu comic book mini series that will also take place in the prequel world and has lead to rumors of a possible Mace Windu spin-off movie, which could be pretty interesting. However, there are no official plans to make a Mace Windu movie or an Andor and K-2So standalone movie at this time. Anything regarding those projects could be based on how the fan reactions are to the upcoming comics.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story mostly focused on the mission of Jyn Erso and her upbringing, which led to questions about the rest of the new characters created for the hit movie. Two of the most popular characters are arguably Rebel Alliance Intelligent officer »
