Review: Batman: Assault on Arkham is Bad.....Bad Ass!

11 August 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Legions of Gotham | See recent Legions of Gotham news »

You can pre-order this film on Amazon.com

Yeah, I said it. I'm obviously a lifelong Batman fan, especially in the realm of animation.  I'm very critical of the Dc Universe films..they're very hit and miss for  me.   This film is without a doubt my favorite of the Dc Universe films to date.  Assault on Arkham has it all..violence, sex, humor and dark twisted enjoyment for all.  This one is what 'The Losers' should have been.  Its like the Expendables with Dc Comics villains.  Top all that off with tons of villain cameos and Kevin Conroy reprising Batman, the role that he owns, and you have an absolute winner.

This review will contain some, but not all, Spoilers!  I'm not going to give you the plot points, but don't read if you don't want a few things revealed, I don't wanna have to call you a waaaaahmbulance.

The Batman of the 1950s: Censorship and New Dimensions

9 August 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In 1960 Bill Finger wrote a Batman story involving a South American rebel group releasing a mysterious “Rainbow Creature” composed of red, green, yellow, and blue on an unsuspecting rural village. Each color holds a power, when a power is used the associated color fades to white. Batman and Robin eventually devise a plan to make it use all its powers simultaneously. It works, and the creature fades entirely white. Then, before The Dynamic Duo can strike, it implodes into dust and blows away in the wind. This was Batman #134. And though the issue was released in 1960, it is the pinnacle of the 1950s Batman: bright, whimsical, otherworldly, and downright bizarre. Did this tone stem from post-War censorship and economic realities, or something else?

The eras of The Batman are many. Even now, as I’m writing this or you are reading it somewhere in time, the character is ever »

Sdcc Interview: Kevin Conroy, star of Batman: Assault on Arkham

6 August 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

david j. moore chats with legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy at the San Diego Comic-Con International…

Every animated character has a voice actor behind it, giving it life. Actor Kevin Conroy has been associated with the Batman character since he voiced him over the course of 86 episodes on Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995), and through many spin-off series’ and feature films that have followed like The New Batman Adventures (1997-1999, 24 episodes), Batman Beyond (1999-2001, 48 episodes), Justice League (2001-2006, 55 episodes) and the video games Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009) and Batman: Arkham City (2011). Warner Bros. has continued using Conroy as Batman’s (and Bruce Wayne’s) voice in direct-to-video feature films over the years, and in the new film Batman: Assault on Arkham, Conroy once again lends his distinctive baritone to give the Caped Crusader that familiar voice fans have comfortably accepted and embraced.

The DC Animated Universe continues to put out fan-servicing animated feature films, the latest being Batman: Assault on Arkham, which hits DVD/Blu-ray on August 12th.

In the film, The Batman Arkham Asylum game universe meets the DC comic book universe for a story where Batman (with fan-fav voice of Kevin Conroy) tries to thwart The Joker’s terrorist scheme at Arkham. Only, when Batman’s infiltration begins, he quickly finds that he’s not the only hunter in the mad jungle; a mysterious team called The Suicide Squad is running their own mission – one in which The Dark Knight is fully expendable.

Batman co-creator Bob Kane's comics go to auction

30 July 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bob Kane's Batman comics are to be auctioned.

The Dark Knight co-creator's copies of his original issues in Detective Comics and Batman are being sold by Comic Connect and Metropolis Collectibles.

The copies of Detective Comics #27-45 and Batman #1-3 were bound by DC Comics for the artist's reference, as reflected by the punches down the side of the comics.

"Treasures like this only surface once in a blue moon," Comic Connect/Metropolis Collectibles CEO Stephen Fishler said (via Robot 6).

"I was lucky enough to know Bob Kane. He told me, along with others, that he was just 17 when he sold the Batman character to an unwitting DC. Once the franchise took off, he leveraged that to renegotiate his contract with DC, and the file copies were part of the deal."

Kane is actually believed to have been 22 or 23 when he sold Batman to the publisher.

16 July 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to TV Guide, we’ve got our first look at the next DC Universe Animated Original Movie release, with the site debuting the first image of Aquaman from Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, the sequel to this year’s Justice League: War

“We meet [Aquaman] at a low point in his life,” says supervising producer James Tucker. “He’s a little bit lost. His father has died and he’s always been an outsider, so the one person who had his back is now gone. When that Atlanteans instigate incidents to escalate a war with the surface world, he doesn’t yet know who he is. As he discovers his true history he’s going to have a lot of choices to make. It’s definitely about him finding his own path… A lot of times with Aquaman people just focus on his powers and their opinion of them »

‘Batman: Assualt on Arkham’ Opening Scene: Riddle Me This

16 July 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Batman: Assault on Arkhamis the latest animated feature from DC Universe. The film will take the continuity of the Arkham Asylum video game series and merge it with another property that DC Entertainment has been trying to launch, The Suicide Squad. As early Assault on Arkham trailers have indicated, that mix could result in an action-packed film, but one that runs the risk of spreading itself too thin, if not balanced correctly.

The clip above is taken from Assault on Arkham‘s opening scene, where we see The Riddler being taken down by Amanda Waller  – that is, until The Batman comes a calling. While Criminal MindsMatthew Gray Gubler is  a new addition, Waller and Batman are getting the benefit of having their defining voice actors – Cch Pounder and Kevin Conroy, respectively – once ...
