10 Best Joker Stories You’ve Never Read

9 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC Comics

The Joker has a truly rich history in comics, popping up countless times to ruin lives around the DC universe. Over the past 75 years, writers and artists have spun hundreds of stories around this troubling and intoxicating character. So why do people talk about only a handful of discussed-to-death storylines, just a single square’s worth in the massive crazy quilt of Joker’s existence?

Comics like “The Killing Joke,” “Mad Love,” “Arkham Asylum,” and “The Dark Knight Returns” are all rewarding, but surely there’s a bigger world out there for fans that want to soak up all things Clown Prince. Let’s go beyond his iconic appearances from recent years, like the fork-tongued butcher served up in “R.I.P.,” the degenerate punk of “Joker,” or the jilted court jester of the New 52. Let’s also bypass the foundation-laying classics— his first appearance in 1940, his origin »

Listed: 10 best movie sequels

13 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s been fifteen years since Derek Zoolander and Hansel last walked the runway. This year they're back, and better than ever.

With the highly anticipated Zoolander 2 hitting theatres this Friday, it's the perfect opportunity to look at some of the best movie sequels of all time.

We have high hopes for Zoolander 2Ben StillerOwen Wilson and Will Ferrell are joined by Kristen Wiig,Penelope CruzBenedict Cumberbatch, and even Justin Bieber. It’s a sequel that’s going to be filled with cameos, laughs, and hopefully a lot of “Magnum” and “Blue Steel.”

The question is, will Zoolander 2 be better than the first? It’ll be tough to out-do the cult comedy classic, but below we take a look at ten sequels that arguably did just that. A great idea can sustain more than one film, and here’s proof that sometimes things are even better the second time around. »

Oscars 2016: David vs. Goliath In Best Picture Race

8 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The stage is set for a David vs. Goliath battle at the 88th academy awards.

In one corner are the Goliath box office hits that Oscarcast viewers have heard of — and maybe even seen: This year’s top three on the nominations tally are Fox’s “The Revenant” (12 noms), Warner Bros.’ “Mad Max: Fury Road” (10) and Fox’s “The Martian” (seven).

Together, they’ve amassed over $1.2 billion at the global box office.

In the other corner are the likes of Fox Searchlight’s “Brooklyn,” which was acquired at Sundance and had a production budget of $11 million, and A24’s “Room,” which is the first best picture nominee for the emerging studio.

Together, they’ve made just over $40 million at the domestic box office (though neither one is close to finished, especially with three weeks to go until the Oscars).

Blockbuster Oscar winners such as “Rocky” and “Titanic” have given way »

Ricky Church begins his countdown to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with Batman: The Dark Knight Returns…

In the 75+ years the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight have existed, there has been a wealth of stories involving two of the world’s greatest heroes. With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arriving in a few short weeks, Flickering Myth will be recommending some of the most influential and iconic stories that have examined the friendship (and sometimes rivalry) between both characters.

'Justice League' Roles Are Small in 'Batman v Superman' Says Snyder

5 February 2016 4:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder spoke about why he prefers the DC Universe to the Marvel Cinematic Universe during an appearance on the Hall of Justice podcast. The filmmaker also had plenty more to say during his appearance, offering new details about both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, which he starts filming this spring. First, the director essentially confirmed rumors that the rest of the Justice League, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) will be featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, although he admitted that they have small roles.

"I really feel like this movie... I mean as far as the other Justice League characters go, it's very small roles. It's a whisper that they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her pretty well. But the movie is about Batman and Superman. »

Listen to Junkie Xl's 'Dawn of Justice' Batman Theme

5 February 2016 11:51 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in November 2014, it was revealed that composer Hans Zimmer is teaming with Junkie Xl (a.k.a. Tom Holkenberg) to work on the score for Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hans Zimmer will craft the theme for Superman (Henry Cavill), like he did in 2013's Man of Steel, with Junkie Xl working on a new Batman (Ben Affleck) theme. Earlier today, Water Tower Music released the Batman theme, entitled "Men Are Still Good (The Batman Suite), which you can listen to below.

Before taking on the job, Hans Zimmer admitted in September 2013 that he was unsure about taking on this job, because he didn't want to create new Batman music after working on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. Junkie Xl, a.k.a. Tom Holkenborg, most recently composed scores for Mad Max: Fury Road, Black Mass and Point Break, along with the upcoming Deadpool. »

Batman v Superman Soundtrack Release Details Revealed!

5 February 2016 10:02 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

What an interesting situation Hans Zimmer was put in when he was asked to do the music for Batman v Superman. This was the guy who shaped the tone for The Dark Knight Trilogy (along with James Newton Howard for the first film), as well as Man Of Steel with his epic and fitting scores. However, with Batman v Superman he was facing a bit of a conundrum. Sure, since BvS takes place within the same universe as Man Of Steel, it makes sense that he'd come back to do the music. But what about Batman? This Batman is a very different one than what Nolan brought us with Christian Bale, and as such, how weird would it be that Zimmer would be responsible for bringing themes to two completely separate iterations of the same character?

Instead of doing that, Zimmer decided to bring on composer Junkie Xl to assist him with the film, »

Deadpool to Power Rangers: comic-book movies' new irreverence

5 February 2016 9:07 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Gloriously off-message and packed full of punky insouciance, the current crop of superhero films suggests we’re entering an era in which even the silliest of source material can shine

In The Dark Knight, which arguably ushered in the modern comic-book film era, the Joker’s “Why so serious” refrain is a call to arms in the face of mankind’s refusal to buy into his distinctive brand of psychopathic glee. Why bother with the burden of the human condition, wonders Heath Ledger’s killer clown, when it’s far easier to freewheel murderously through life without a care in the world?

Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy is often seen as the dark, brooding counterbalance to the cheerier Marvel movies that followed it. And yet in many ways, Ledger’s cackling, sociopathic performance supercharged the trilogy’s 2008 middle instalment in the same way as Joss Whedon’s diamond-cut dialogue rocket-fuelled 2012’s The Avengers. »

Sony’s Zorro Reboot Will Have “Near-Future” Setting, Gravity Scribe Jonás Cuarón On Board To Direct

4 February 2016 12:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Citing Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight as inspiration, all signs pointed to Sony gunning for a post-apocalyptic aesthetic for Zorro Reborn. In the time that’s lapsed since we last caught wind of the studio’s masked bandit, it appears the project has been given a total overhaul, with plans now in place for the reboot to be rooted in the near-future.

That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that Gravity co-writer Jonás Cuarón will write and direct the remake now formally known as Z. It’s by no means the only property to get the futuristic treatment under Sony, given the company is also whisking Robin Hood and his fellow men in tights into the not-so-distant future for a “revisionist” and “gritty” and “reimagining” and just about every other buzzword that comes to mind.

As for Zorro – sorry, Z – Cuarón is reportedly eyeing a summer start date, »

George Miller Explains Why His Justice League Film Never Happened

4 February 2016 9:54 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It seems like overnight George Miller has become a huge sensation. This is a man who's been in the business for more years than I've been alive, but all the same, in the wake of his latest film, Mad Max: Fury Road, everyone is realizing what a talent the man is in Hollywood. All of a sudden, that canceled Justice League: Mortal film from back in 2007 is a huge deal.

Sure, we're getting Batman v Superman this year, and a Justice League film late next year, but there's something romantic and mysterious about a film that never was--especially when it could have been helmed by someone like George Miller.

We know that the world was a much different place back then. Comic book movies weren't really a sure thing by that point, and the idea of throwing these different superheroes together seemed like a huge risk. Heck, even as »

Watch footage from The Dark Knight cancelled video game

4 February 2016 1:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In 2005, Electronic Arts published a video game version of Christopher Nolan’s epic superhero reboot Batman Begins. It got mixed reviews, however due to Batman’s evident popularity and the hype surrounding the release of Nolan’s sequel The Dark Knight, another video game tie-in was warranted and EA and Pandemic Studios began working hard to get the game finished before the movie’s release.

That didn’t happen for various reasons and this video courtesy of DidYouKnowGaming? sheds some light on the specifics behind why the game was cancelled. The video also has some footage and concepts from The Dark Knight game.

The Dark Knight: footage emerges from cancelled videogame

facebook

twitter

google+

There was supposed to be a videogame of The Dark Knight - and footage from the cancelled Batman release has surfaced.

If you've ever wondered why we never got a video game adaptation of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, Did You Know Gaming? has made the reasons pretty clear in a new video.

You might recall that back in 2008, just before the release of Nolan's highly anticipated sequel to Batman Begins (which did get a pretty bad video game adaptation), actor Gary Oldman let slip that he'd signed on to reprise his role as Jim Gordon in the upcoming Dark Knight video game, a secret that Pandemic Studios and Electronic Arts had yet to reveal to the public. 

Since then, fans have scrutinised the project and the reasons behind why The Dark Knight video game never saw the light of day (night?). This new video gives us those reasons, »

5 Reasons Man Of Steel Is Better Than You Think

3 February 2016 9:27 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After almost three long years of waiting, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will finally hit theaters on March 25th. The film has become one of the most highly anticipated cinematic experiences of all time, but the enthusiasm of many seems somewhat dulled by their poor opinion of the movie.s predecessor: Man of Steel. Whether it.s Zack Snyder.s direction, the chaos and destruction of the film.s third act, or even the mere tone of the film, naysayers seem to constantly find new ways to call it a terrible movie. While there.s a degree of truth to of some these accusations, I am of the mindset that Man of Steel is a far better film than its detractors would ever give it credit for. Is it perfect? Of course not; not even Christopher Nolan.s The Dark Knight is a perfect movie. However, Man of Steel »

'Suicide Squad' Teaser Gives Joker the Last Laugh

1 February 2016 4:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It was just last week that we got the second full-length trailer for the highly anticipated DC Comics adventure Suicide Squad. Now, the official Instagram page for the movie has released a quick teaser for the movie. And while it doesn't give us a whole lot of new footage, it does give Jared Leto's The Joker the last laugh.

The Joker appears to be much more deranged than the rest of his squad-mates. And most of the publicity materials leading up to the release have shown The Joker to be set apart from the rest of the group. USA Today caught up with director David Ayer, who shed some new light on the clown prince of terror. He has this to say about the quite "scary" to take on such an iconic DC villain.

"It's a scary character to tackle. This iteration of him, people will realize there really »
