Batman: The Killing Joke, 2016.
Directed by Sam Liu.
Based on the acclaimed graphic novel of the same name, Batman: The Killing Joke takes a journey into the dark psyche of the Clown Prince of Crime – from his humble beginnings as a struggling comedian to his fateful encounter with Batman that changes both of their lives forever. Years later, and now escaped from Arkham Asylum, The Joker devises a plan to prove that one bad day can make anyone as insane as he is – setting his sights on Commissioner Gordon. It’s up to the Dark Knight to put a stop to The Joker’s latest scheme and save one of Gotham City’s finest. Following a gripping prologue introducing Barbara Gordon’s heroic adventures alongside Batman as Batgirl, Batman: The Killing Joke »

If you've ever wanted to see Batman suit up in a giant robot (along with Green Arrow) to fight a city sized monster Voltron style, then it looks like the new Batman Unlimited direct-to-dvd movie, Mechs vs. Mutants, is exactly what you need. Come inside to check out the first details and trailer on the upcoming animated adventure!
When Warner Bros. announced that Batman Unlimited would be bringing a new series of animated 'movies' for fans, they promised it would be a way to play around in the Batman universe and offer new ideas for young kids to enjoy that would be a little different. Our first details and look at Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants (which comes to DVD on September 13th) is definitely something different.
It's kind of a neat idea, though it feels like any other giant mecha/monster cartoon idea out there. The biggest different here, »

Although many of us appreciate mature animated films featuring The Dark Knight such as the recently released Batman: Bad Blood or the upcoming R-rated Batman: The Killing Joke, we must be honest in saying that the character resonates with people of all ages and, therefore, movies appealing to the younger crowd are much needed. On September 13, Batman Unlimited: Mech vs. Mutants aims to fill that void when it arrives on DVD. As of now, no Blu-Ray release date has been given, but we’ll keep you posted.
The Batman Unlimited franchise started as a toy line that saw Batman, along with his heroic cohorts and villains, given somewhat futuristic reinterpretations. From that spawned two animated films, Animal Instincts and Monster Mayhem, along with a web series. While they have produced bizarre scenarios such as Batman riding at robotic T-Rex that shoots lasers (albeit in a virtual world), the series »

Twelve years have passed since Corvo Attano scuppered the Lord Regent’s duplicitous plot against the crown and cleared his name of the Empress Jessamine’s murder.

Concept Art for "Superman: Flyby"
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 what into relaunching the Batman and Superman franchises, 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 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 »

The summer of 4001 A.D. is finally upon us! If I am going to be completely honest, I wasn’t as excited for this as I was for other events that they had done in the past. This is because I know very little about the book’s main character Rai. I recently got a crash course about him at Wondercon thanks to a great conversation I had with Dinesh Shamdasani at their booth and later at their panel. What also helped me was the Free Comic Book Day Special issue entitled “Valiant 2016” which includes a prologue to 4001 A.D. giving you a crash course as to what is New Japan, who Rai is and what is his current status. Lucky for me I had a very long week so I actually got to read the special first (which is why this review is so late, sorry life happens). In »

Here’s why succession planning might be the future of the McU
Like the rest of you, I spent part of my weekend in a movie theater watching Captain America: Civil War. I’ve always been something of a moderate when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe; while I find most of them to be a great deal of fun, there are also clear boundaries on where a Marvel movie can and cannot go. This means that even a big tent-pole crossover like Civil War is sorely lacking in surprises. So while I largely enjoyed Civil War, I also came out of the movie with two distinct realizations about the future of the franchise. The first is that these movie have maxed out their potential and are probably incapable of getting any better; the other is that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set up to run almost indefinitely.
Since so many people are weighing in on »

It’s been no surprise to my readers (hey everyone!) that I’ve been on something of an animation jones, something fierce. Well, with Young Justice successfully binged on, Netflix suggested I check out a little known show… Justice League. Bruce Timm’s multi-parter masterpiece was the first time the significant seven (pre New52, Flashpoint, Final Crisis, but post Crisis, ya dig?) were assembled to face off against the biggest baddies of the Dcu. Mongul, Despero, Faust and Hades, Gorilla Grodd, and yes: Ocean Master (sorta). To be clear: I’ve seen the show. Often. But something has always troubled me about it. That trouble? John Stewart… the milquetoast affirmative action Green Lantern.
Bruce Timm, Paul Dini, and their well-crafted production staff assembled an amazing septuplet. The holy trinity: Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. The best B-Listers money can buy: Green Lantern and the Flash. And for clean up… Martian Manhunter and Hawkgirl. »

Last week I tore DC Entertainment a new bum-port over their recent efforts to entertain the masses. If you didn’t read it, let me sum it up for you.
As I’d been buried in freelance work this past week, I’ve found that firing up Netflix on my second screen helps me focus. Headphone blaring quality programming on demand whilst I graphic design my way out of the hole I dug has been very fruitful as of late. I was able to binge-lance my way through season 4 of House of Cards, rewatch the first season of Better Caul Saul, rewatch the entirety of Breaking Bad (because, how could I not?), and watch the »

If Aquaman actor Jason Momoa’s recent Instagram post is a sign of things to come, it looks as though the Watchtower may be one of the super-hangouts featured in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League: Part One. The actor recently posted a video of himself getting into shape for Justice League, which starts filming this year, tagging it “getting ready for the castle. Watchtower.”
Unless he has strong ties to the Church of Latter Day Saints, he’s likely referring to the Justice League’s orbital stronghold.
At the end of a rough day, the members of Warner Bros./DC’s Justice League – first assembled in 1960 – have been known to retire to their own abodes. But when supervillains unravel their nefarious plots upon the planet, DC’s superheroes need a place to meet, greet and monitor the developing situation. That’s where the Hall of Justice comes into play. »

Ever since DC Comics began promoting Rebirth, fans have wondered if it means the company will once again reboot the DC Universe and which series will be cancelled, created or retooled. While Rebirth isn’t strictly a full out reboot as The New 52 was, it’s a clear shift in their creative line-up, attempting to return some things the way they were prior to The New 52 status.
Today at Wondercon, DC finally revealed the series that will be a part of Rebirth as well as the creative teams. There are several familiar names as well as new ones in the line-up. One surprising announcement is Greg Rucka returning to Wonder Woman, something many fans should be very happy about after his stellar run on the title from 2003 – 2006. Action Comics and Detective Comics are also returning to their original numbering while several titles will be shipped twice monthly. DC Rebirth begins »

For years, Warner Brothers has attempted (and failed, mind you!) to put Wonder Woman on screen, have Batman and Superman in the same film, make a cinematic universe that could rival that of Marvel’s, and introduce a plethora of new DC characters, such as Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman. Funny enough, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice attempts to do All of that in a single movie. Ironically, this movie comes out Easter weekend, and like many kids (and enthusiastic adults?) on Easter, this movie attempts to put all of the eggs they can find into a single basket. Are you a big DC movie fan who loves to hear nothing but praise for the DC films and enjoys a circlejerk of enthusiasm? This review isn’t for you. I grew up a DC fan, growing up with great Timmverse cartoons such as Justice League, Batman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond. »
