First Trailer For DC Animation's Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay Looks Brilliant

The first trailer for Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay has arrived, and it looks promising. That used to be something you wouldn't have to say about DC Animated Features, but they've been spotty as of late in my personal opinion so all I can say here is the trailer looks pretty damn good. The lineup of heroes is better than the live-action film, Tara Strong is voicing Harley, and the violence doesn't appear to be limited as Quinn just smacked the head off that frozen guy! Let's just hope Vandal Savage is more interesting this time around than he was in Legends of Tomorrow. Christian Slater also stars in the film as Deadshot!

Review: The Zeta Project

  • Comicmix
Lost amid the hubbub over the animated series based on the traditional DC Comics was The Zeta Project, a fun spinoff from Warner Animation’s first original creation, Batman Beyond. Thanks to Warner Archives the two season series, spanning 2001-2002, is being released on DVD.

The series is focused on Zeta (Diedrich Bader), formally known as Infiltration Unit Zeta, a synthoid, who works for the Nsa. The machine was introduced in the season two Batman Beyond episode “Zeta,” written by Robert Goodman, who developed the spinoff.

He violates his programming when he is asked to kill an innocent and goes on the run, vowing never to kill again. Of course, the Nsa wants him back and sends a team, led by the clichéd obsessive, Agent James Bennett (the well-cast Kurtwood Smith), convinced Brother’s Day, the terrorists reprogrammed the agency’s machine. He’s often accompanied by the arrogant Agent

Here's the trailer for Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1

The Dark Knight Rises may have grabbed the majority of the Batman headlines lately as Christopher Nolan brought the curtain down on his acclaimed live-action trilogy, but the Caped Crusader will be back later this year in animated form as Warner Premiere unleashes the first of a two-part adaptation of Frank Miller's seminal comic book tale Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, which has just received its first trailer today courtesy of MTV Geek.

Executive produced by DC animation legend Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series), Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 is directed by Jay Oliva (Young Justice) from a script by Bob Goodman (The Zeta Project). Peter Weller (RoboCop) leads the voice cast as the aged Bruce Wayne / Batman, while other talent includes David Selby (The Social Network) as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter (Modern Family) as Carrie Kelley / Robin, Wade Williams (The Dark Knight Rises) as Two-Face and

The Week in Spandex - The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Kick-Ass 2 and The Hoff: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Our weekly round-up of all the big news stories from the world of movie superheroes…

Having made way for Disney's marketing blitz on The Avengers these past couple of months, Warner Bros. stepped up the promotional campaign for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises in a big way this week, flooding the world wide web with a host of Bat-related goodies. It began with a new theatrical poster, and while this left some fans underwhelmed, the studio more than made amends over the next few days, starting with six character posters showcasing Batman (Christian Bale), Bane (Tom Hardy) and Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway), along with a 'secret' Catwoman design that was discovered tucked away on the official website. Of course, this was just the beginning, and soon we had two new TV spots consisting of snippets of previously unseen footage, in addition to a whole raft of images featuring Bruce Wayne / Batman,

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns voice cast revealed and first images released

Marvel may have enjoyed more success than DC when it comes to live-action adaptations (well, outside of Christopher Nolan's Batman saga, at least), but in terms of animation even the most hardened of Marvel fans would have to admit that DC Comics has the edge. With their direct-to-video DC Universe Animated Original Movies line (now rebranded as DC Comics Premiere Movies), Warner Bros. has adapted some of the most acclaimed comic book titles from the DC Universe and now they're turning their their attention to one of the all-time greats in Frank Miller's epic tale, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, for what is sure to be a hotly anticipated two-part animated adaptation.

As revealed by Heat Vision today, Peter Weller (RoboCop) has been brought in to voice Bruce Wayne / Batman in The Dark Knight Returns, leading a cast that includes Ariel Winter (Modern Family) as Carrie Kelley / Robin,

Review: 'Batman Beyond the Complete Series'

  • Comicmix
I admit to being leery when Warner Animation announced their plans to follow the amazing Batman the Animated Adventures with a next generation hero called Batman Beyond. After all, it was a clear departure from the source material and there was no knowing how this would work.

As it turns out, there was little to fear. The series, which ran from January 1999 through December 2001, honored the past and showed us a future Gotham City that still needed a Dark Knight. Rather than just add wrinkles and gray hair to all the familiar figures, things have changed. Dick Grayson seems to be gone, Alfred and Jim Gordon are dead with Barbara Gordon now the police commissioner. And sitting in the gloom of Wayne Mansion is a still-angry, infirm Bruce Wayne.

He knows there’s work to be done and in time, targets teenager Terry McGuinness as his successor. The youth has

[DVD Review] Tiny Toon Adventures: Season 1: Volume 2

Like many things in life (and perhaps even more in entertainment), Tiny Toon Adventures can only be fully understood when considered with what came before and after it. For example, how much more irritating were the Ewoks when you realized that they were paving the way for Jar Jar Binks? Can you watch Jack Nicholson’s original interpretation of the Joker without thinking of Heath Ledger’s more recent portrayal? All the same, Tiny Toons can really only be seen in retrospect as the link between the Muppet Babies of the late 1980s and the subsequent, far more engaging Animaniacs, which premiered in 1993. It should be evaluated on its own terms, but it can’t really be thought of or remembered any other way.

Tiny Toon Adventures takes place (for the most part) at Acme Looniversity, where younger counterparts of nearly all of the original Looney Tunes characters learn how

[DVD Review] The Zeta Project: Season 1

12.00 Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 When I was the Saturday morning cartoon watching age the big attractions were the animated series of Spider-man, X-men and Batman. These were all classics. Of these three I still hold Batman: The Animated Series above for having writing that elevated it from mere children's programming to good, smart entertainment. I still watch the show on DVD to this day. By the time Batman Beyond rolled around I was long gone from the Saturday morning phase and probably saw one or two episodes at most. It was good, but nothing I was willing to plant myself down for on a regular basis.

A few years later I tuned back in to see what kids were watching on Saturday mornings and I came across The Zeta Project. At the time I was turned off by the sappy writing and "fluffy" animation style. The
