25 years of Tim Burton's 'Batman' and why I owe it a lot

23 June 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There is a reason I'm a Batman fan. It's not because I'm a life-long comic book reader. That came later. And it's not because I grew up watching reruns of the old ABC television series. Though I certainly did. It's because Tim Burton's "Batman," released in theaters 25 years ago today, was the first movie that really owned my anticipatory faculties as a child. It was the first film that lit my movie-going fire, a designation saved for "Star Wars," "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "E.T." a generation prior and perhaps "Jurassic Park" and Harrison Ford's actioners a generation later. In the simplest of terms, I wouldn't be a film obsessive if it weren't for "Batman." I owe it that much. For me, the film was an event not to be missed. I remember watching the commercials flood prime time television: the howling of a Batwing circling a Gothic cathedral, »

Tim Burton's Batman: the pivotal superhero movie at 25

20 June 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tim Burton's Batman was released 25 years ago. Ryan looks back at how it overcame a media backlash to become a defining 80s blockbuster...

Feature

There may have been a point, in late 1988, where Tim Burton began to wonder whether he'd bitten off more than he could chew.

Sure, the 30-year-old director had made feature films before - namely Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and Beetlejuice - but those films were relatively low-budget. Small-scale. Made outside the glare of public and Hollywood studio scrutiny.

Batman, on the other hand, was being put together with a blinding media spotlight trained on it. Warner Bros had set aside somewhere around $30m to adapt DC Comics' beloved Caped Crusader for the silver screen, and both journalists and fans were following every step of its production with keen interest.

Most worryingly, as production on Batman got underway in October 1988, a vocal proportion of those fans were decidedly unhappy. »

10 Comic Book Characters That Were Created Outside of Comics

17 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A ton of awesome comic book characters have been introduced to us over the years, but not all of these characters were created for the comics. There are a handful of them that were created for other media before they found their way into the comic universes of Marvel and DC. Here is a list of ten comic characters that you may or may not know originated outside of the comics.

Harley Quinn[Television] Batman: The Animated Series

That's right folks, everyone's favorite sadistic Joker sidekick wasn't introduced into Batman's Rogues Gallery until Batman: The Animated Series. She was an instant classic! The first comic she appeared in was The Batman Adventures #12 in September of 1993. Over the years she has had her own series and also teamed up with Poison Ivy and Catwoman several times to beat down on Batman. She is my favorite female villain of all time.

Father of the Bride stars then & now: From Steve Martin to Kieran Culkin

16 June 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's currently being reported that Steve Martin will be reprising his role as cynical businessman George Banks in Father of the Bride 3.

Martin is tipped to return alongside Diane Keaton as wife Nina Banks in the comedy, which will see the couple's son Matty revealing his plans to marry the son of a Us Navy Seal.

1991's Father of the Bride was based on the 1950 movie of the same, while 1995's sequel was loosely based on 1951's Father's Little Dividend.

As we anticipate a potential Part III, catch up on the major stars' exploits since - and compare how they looked then and now:

Steve Martin

Steve Martin - already an established Hollywood name before Father of the Bride - plays hapless patriarch George Banks, who suffers a series of ridiculous misfortunes (and a mild breakdown - the too-plentiful pack of hotdogs springs to mind) after his daughter announces that she's getting married. »

Batman 75th Anniversary Exhibit revealed as part of Warner Bros. VIP Studios Tour

11 June 2014 1:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday on the lots of Warner Bros in Burbank, California, the studio behind the Batman franchise revealed a special VIP studio tour to help celebrate The Dark Knight’s 75th Anniversary. While many had suggested that the “big announcement” that was due would be more fan bait with rumours of a first reveal of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, but the filmmakers are keeping that and many other details under wraps for the time being.

Here is the official press release to mark the beginning of the exhibit:

In celebration of the 75th anniversary of DC Comics’ iconic Super Hero, Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour will open its new attraction, “The Batman Exhibit,” beginning June 26. Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour worked closely with DC Entertainment to create “The Batman Exhibit” and it will be a featured addition on the studio’s historic backlot for a limited time. »

Image of Harley Quinn from Batman: Assault On Arkham

5 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I don't know a Batman fan who doesn't like Harley Quinn. She's such a great villain, and I hope that one day she finds a place in a live action movie. In the meantime, we get to enjoy her in the comics, video games, and animated films. A new image of the character has been released from the upcoming DC animated feature, Batman: Assault on Arkham. The character is being voiced by Hynden Walch (Justice League Unlimited, The Batman, Teen Titans).

The movie is a prequel that takes place two years before the first video game, Arkham Asylum. It's being directed by Jay Oliva, and it also features the voice talents of Kevin Conroy as BatmanEliza Dushku as Killer Frost, Neal McDonough as Deadshot, Troy Baker as The Joker, Matthew Gubler as the Riddler, and C.C.H. Pounder as Amanda Waller.

The movie will be released on DVD and Blu-ray later this summer. »

31 Most Iconic Lines From Batman Movies

2 June 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

The Batman franchise is notorious for its scripts, and not always in a positive way: going back even as far as Adam West’s ludicrous, cult-classic version of the character, good writing never seemed to be paramount for the character who traded more on iconic design and immediate mythology. And you could be forgiven for thinking that some of the later directors took that as a guide – particularly Joel Schumacher, whose mud-dumb sequels sprinkled as much verbal manure across the visuals as the director did day-glo paint.

But it hasn’t always been so bad: thanks to the need for punchy action and irresistibly quotable moments in a genre that relies on heavy punches, Batman has also been responsible for some of the most enduring lines in cinema history.

In celebration of those beats that left us swollen with heroic pride, or agog with delight, we’ve put »

75 Years of Batman

30 May 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

"The "Bat-Man", a mysterious and adventurous figure, fighting for righteousness and apprehending the wrong doer, in his lone battle against the evil forces of society... His identity remains unknown."

Those exciting words started off a story in Detective Comics Issue number 27 in May of 1939, and the world was introduced to one of the most well-known and most recognized superheroes - The Bat-Man, as he was first called. National Comics (now DC Comics) was enjoying comic sales due to Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel's latest creation, Superman, and they were in the market for another caped crusader. Created by Bob Kane, he was little more than crude sketches until Bill Finger gave some suggestions that would make him iconic: The bat cowl, the color of the costume (Kane originally planned on having Batman wear a red union suit with black trunks and cape), and putting gloves on the hero.

Comic Book Review – Batman ’66 Meets The Green Hornet #1

29 May 2014 4:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen reviews Batman ’66 Meets The Green Hornet #1…

In 1967, television history was made when two masked crime fighters met in a historic crossover. Now, superstar filmmaker Kevin Smith and actor/comedian Ralph Garman join forces with artist Ty Templeton (Batman ’66) to bring these two iconic characters and their famous partners together again. Set in the continuity of that earlier team-up, Batman, The Green Hornet, Robin and Kato must go up against a very different General (formerly Colonel) Gumm. What crime could be so deadly as to force these rivals to put aside their differences and join forces again? And what surprise does Gumm have up his sticky sleeve?

The Batman ’66 series has been a good little romp that works as an excellent tribute to the vastly-under appreciated 1966 series of Batman starring Adam West and Burt Ward. It’s never really fallen outside of those who would seek out this sort of comic anyway, »

Ray Fisher has been cast to play Cyborg in the upcoming Batman vs Superman movie.

Cavill previously revealed that he would be keen to see Cyborg and Star Labs featured in the sequel.

The Batman vs Superman film will mark the first time the two superheroes appear together in a live-action movie. »
