10 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Gotham has added another DC villain to its cast of characters, with Deadline revealing that David Zayas (The Expendables, Dexter) has joined the Batman prequel series in the role of Sal Maroni. Notable for being the one to scar Harvey Dent in comic book continuity, the mob boss appeared briefly in both 1989′s Batman and 1995′s Batman Forever, while Eric Roberts portrayed him in 2008′s The Dark Knight. It’s said that his character will find himself competing for territory against another mobster in Carmine Falcone, played by John Doman (The Wire).

Gotham is set to premiere on Fox on Monday, September 22nd, with Ben McKenzie (The O.C.) starring as Detective Jim Gordon alongside Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers) as Alfred Pennyworth, Donal Logue (Sons of Anarchy) as Harvey Bullock, newcomer Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, David Mazouz (Touch) as Bruce Wayne, Robin Lord Taylor (Another Earth) as Oswald Cobblepot, »

5 Geeky Things We Want This Week, Batman's 75th Anniversary Edition

12 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the introduction of Batman in Detective Comics #27. The World's Greatest Detective still manages to thrill, even after all these years and is so beloved that Batfleck inspired jeers the world over. Here's some Batman stuff to mark the time.

Sodium Batman Tshirt

This periodic table-like design has 16 sodiums and one Batman. Since the symbol for sodium is Na, it says, “NaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNa, Batman!” That the mass of Batman is 19.39 is a nice nod to the year he was created. [Think Geek]

Batman Year One

Lieutenant James Gordon is new to Gotham City, and Bruce Wayne is newly returned. Things are not good, but maybe they can make a difference. Based on the arc by Frank Miller, this animated movie is an interesting take on the origin of Batman’s relationship with his favorite cop. [Amazon]

14 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Add one more villain to the list: EW has confirmed that David Zayas of Dexter fame has been cast as Sal Maroni in Fox’s upcoming Gotham. Deadline first reported the news.

In Batman lore, Maroni is a self-made crime boss who starts from the bottom and works his way up to the second most powerful mobster in Gotham City, nipping at the heels of mob boss Carmine Falcone (to be played John Dorman in Gotham). Ultimately, Maroni is the man responsible for District Attorney Harvey Dent’s transformation into the villainous Two-Face. The character was most famously  portrayed by »

'Gotham' Adds 'Dexter' Star David Zayas as Mobster Sal Maroni

14 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Dexter star David Zayas has signed on for a recurring role in the upcoming Fox series Gotham as ruthless mob boss Sal Maroni. It hasn't been confirmed how many episodes the actor will be appearing in.

In the DC Comics, Salvatore Maroni was one of Batman's first enemies, who took control of the city's unions and drug trade. He is best known as the man responsible for the disfigurement of District Attorney Harvey Dent, and his transformation into the villainous Two-Face. However, the show is set several years before these story lines unfold.

In Gotham, Maroni is second in the criminal underworld behind Carmine Falcone (John Doman), with Season 1 putting Maroni on a "crash course" with his bitter rival Falcone as they battle for control of Gotham's underworld. Sal Maroni was most notably played by Eric Roberts in director Christopher Nolan's 2008 feature The Dark Knight.

The Mob is invading Gotham.

Fox’s upcoming Batman prequel series has tapped Dexter alum David Zayas to recur as crime boss Salvatore Maroni, our sister site Deadline reports.

Related Gotham Boss Promises Abundance of Villains, a Superhero That’s Not Batman

In the Batman mythology, Maroni — who was played by Eric Roberts in The Dark Knight — is one of the city’s most dangerous gangsters and among the caped crusader’s first enemies. He is also infamous as the man responsible for disfiguring Da Harvey Dent, leading him to transform into Two-Face.

Gotham Adds David Zayas As Gangster Sal Maroni

15 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Going from solving grisly murders to ordering them, Dexter alum David Zayas has joined the impressive cast of Fox’s upcoming Gotham, a series which will chart the journey of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) from new cop on the block to the police commissioner of corrupt, crime-ridden Gotham City – long before the Dark Knight ever soared through its skies. The actor will be playing gangster Salvatore “Sal” Maroni in what is described as a recurring role.

Even casual Batman fans should be familiar with Maroni - he was a major character in The Dark Knight, working alongside the Joker to undermine order in Gotham then gets on Harvey Dent/Two-Face’s bad side by helping to perpetrate the kidnapping and murder of his girlfriend Rachel Dawes.

In the comics, as in that film, Maroni was a street operator who worked himself up to a high position of power in the Gotham criminal underworld. »

David Zayas Leaves Miami For ‘Gotham’

15 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He spent several years in the heat of Miami opposite Dexter, now David Zayas is headed for the moody gloom of Batman’s home city in Gotham. He’ll play Sal Maroni, the mob boss who inadvertently created Two-Face, last portrayed on screen by Eric Roberts in The Dark Knight. His story in this TV prequel will involve a turf war with rival Carmine Falcone (John Doman), a road that leads him inevitably to the attention of the soon-to-be-Caped Crusader.

Zayas has a lot of expertise to bring to the role as in a former life he was in the NYPD. Swapping the flowery shirts of Angel Batista for the snappy threads and bruised knuckles of a comic book heavy looks like it’ll suit him just fine. And if he gets depressed he can always lift his spirits watching his work in the upcoming remake of Annie.

Gotham will debut September 22nd on Fox. »

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Final Starring Role Hints at a Brilliant Career Third Act We’ll Never See

17 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

When artists die young, their legend often grows disproportionately to their record of accomplishments. When James Dean passed away after making just three films, he was posthumously anointed as one of the greatest actors of his generation, a claim based mostly on his promise. Maybe he would have become Marlon Brando, or maybe not. In our struggle to make sense of our own mortality, we find tragedy more palatable than uncertainty. In this way, death creates limitless potential. A good portion of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s potential had already been tapped when he died at 46 earlier this year. If there were an Actors’ Hall of Fame, they could have begun measuring him for a bust there somewhere around Capote. Still, there was reason to believe he had room to grow. After all, arguably his best performance came just two years ago when he played cult leader Lancaster Dodd in The Master. As »

Comic Con: Review of the Gotham pilot

19 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Fox had an uphill battle the moment they announced that they would be making a Batman TV series. Sure, Gotham is billed as a look at the city and the origins of the characters who would become The Dark Knight and his rogue's gallery of villains, but even with the focus squarely on a young James Gordon, Gotham is and will forever be "a Batman TV show". That is unless it sets itself apart by delivering a powerful and must see pilot. The first episode of Gotham was screened at San »

11 Dumb Decisions In The Dark Knight Trilogy [Video]

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

Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy is, without a doubt, the apex of superhero cinema. Every single aspect of the trilogy was innovative, memorable and leagues ahead of other work in the genre.

But that doesn’t mean that they weren’t dumb.

For all the genius of Nolan, the strength of the cast and the brilliance associated with each entry in the trilogy, the films are pretty flawed in places and there are some pretty big plot-holes left behind, most of which stem from a character making a Really idiotic decision.

In a lot of ways, this makes them more far more interesting (especially so in the case of Rises, in fact) and has allowed for interesting debates and discussion to arise. In other ways, the errors prove jarring and distracting.

Are there any that we’ve missed? Let us know in the comments below.

A Dame to Kill For: A Chat with Frank Miller

31 July 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | IMDb Blog - All the Latest | See recent IMDb Blog - All the Latest news »

The reverence comic book readers hold for Frank Miller is understandable when one contemplates the depth of his influence on popular culture. Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy drew heavily from Miller’s reimagining of the iconic superhero in his 1986 series The Dark Knight Returns and 1987’s Batman: Year One. You can see shadows of Miller’s signature artistic style in the films of Zack Snyder, who directed the film version of Miller’s graphic novel 300 before taking on Watchmen and Sucker Punch.

But while his takes on classic DC heroes such as Batman and Daredevil were singular, Miller’s original creation, his hyper-noir Sin City graphic novels, may be his most celebrated work. Set in the deeply cruel and corrupt town known as Basin City, its vignettes paint portraits of tough men with tender souls, and women who are sexy, sinister and controversial… but never simple, »

Sharknado 2: The Second One – 14 Awesomely Ridiculous Moments

31 July 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

SyFy

In the lineage of movie sequels that outdid their predecessors, there’s The Godfather Part 2, Aliens, Terminator 2, The Dark Knight, and now…Sharknado 2: The Second One. Sharknado premiered on SyFy last July, and became an instant hit with audiences, aided by the fact that viewers were encouraged to Tweet about the movie as they watched it.

What was it that made the latest offering from The Asylum so eminently watchable? The gleefully silly, go-for-broke absurdity of it all, where nothing was outside the realm of possibilities, and the low $2 million budget didn’t stop them crafting some wild set-pieces, even if the effects were diabolical, the acting mostly terrible, and the central plot completely forgettable.

It was a charming movie, and the clear love with which it was made earned it a place in the hearts of cineastes the world over for its “so bad it’s good” quality, »

Interstellar gets an Exciting New Trailer

31 July 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Coming from Christopher Nolan, the man who brought us The Dark Knight and InceptionInterstellar is one of 2014's most anticipated films.  Yesterday saw the release of a brand new trailer, and it has us extremely excited!

Information has been pretty scarce on Interstellar so far, and the trailers we've seen up until now haven't shown much.  With this third trailer, we finally get a better sense of the story and some tantalizing visuals.  Check it out:

Personally, I was incredibly impressed.  This trailer proved that the movie should have a strong and emotionally engaging story, while still demonstrating that there will be exciting action.  The fact that Christopher Nolan also showed off some of his impressive visual effects and conveyed the sense of the mystery that will almost surely pervade the film was just icing on the cake.  I was excited before, but now I'll be counting down the days. »
