Avengers: Age Of Ultron IMAX 3D Review; "Good Luck Topping This, Warner Bros."

14 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As superhero movie sequels go, Avengers: Age of Ultron sits nicely alongside the likes of Spider-Man 2 and The Dark Knight. Any fears you may have had about this movie failing to top its predecessor will be quickly forgotten when you see the Hulkbuster go to war with the Hulk or Captain America chastising Iron Man for his use of bad language. Oh, and you'll be relieved to know that the sequel doesn't repeat past mistakes; Ultron's army aren't the Chitauri, and the final battle is moved to a different and more interesting locale than New York City. Yes, it's true that the magic of seeing the heroes assembled is no longer there, but Avengers: Age of Ultron more than makes up for that with countless other fan pleasing moments and scenes. There's a lot of humour in the sequel too, and while that's bothered some fans, this is far »

New Batman: Arkham Knight Trailer Reveals Allies and “Dual Play” Feature

27 April 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have released a new Batman: Arkham Knight trailer showing that Batman may be up against an army, but he’s also got plenty of friends. The trailer highlights the game’s new “Dual Play” feature, “which will allow players to seamlessly switch between The Dark Knight and his allies including Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman in FreeFlow Combat.” I’m not really sure how that will make the game more fun since I’ve never felt so backed into a corner that I needed to switch to another ally to help me out. Also, this is not co-op play. This is just jumping to another character, and while that may make for some cool fights, I’m curious to see how much it adds to the overall gameplay. Check out the new Batman: Arkham Knight trailer below. The game will be released on Xbox One, »

Weekend Box Office: Furious 7 Scores Fourth Win on Pre-ultron Frame

26 April 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

For the fourth weekend in a row, Furious 7 is the number one movie at the domestic box office. That puts the film in rarified company, as only the fourth film of the past decade to spend four consecutive weeks in first place. The other three four-time champions were Avatar, The Dark Knight and The Hunger Games. To give credit where it’s due, Avatar actually spent seven weeks in first place in 2009-2010 (what were we all thinking back then?) and Guardians of the Galaxy had four wins last summer – just not in a row. According to studio estimates, Furious 7 earned another $18.2 million between Friday and Sunday, or a drop of just 37% over last weekend. That brings the film’s domestic total to $320.5 million after 24 days. But the real story continues to be F7’s momentum overseas. Already the fastest film to break $1 billion in global sales (17 days »

Web Reaction: Jared Leto as The Joker

26 April 2015 3:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on the web reaction to Jared Leto as The Joker…

It’s been 24 hours since David Ayer unleashed his vision for The Joker. Jared Leto’s heavily tattooed, Marilyn Manson inspired take on the character has left hardcore fans perplexed. The reaction online has been a healthy mix of love, hate, and downright disdain. However, some of the cooler heads have prevailed giving us some interesting insights on this new version of the classic character celebrating his 75th Birthday this week. Let’s take a moment, take a deep breath, and try to find some perspective on this polarizing first image.

“This is the worst thing I’ve ever seen.”

Really? Did you never see Whoopi Goldberg in Theodore Rex? Or Furious 7? I assume you meant ‘this is the worst version of the Joker you’ve ever seen’. I can’t even say that’s true. Did »

Jared Leto Joker Image from Suicide Squad Reveals a Tattooed Psychopath

25 April 2015 9:37 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The third time's a charm for Suicide Squad director David Ayer. Late Friday afternoon he released his third Jared Leto Joker image from the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe film, and unlike the first two, this one wasn't a tease at all.

Ayer's design for the Joker is a striking image of a modern deranged man riddled with tattoos, rings, silver teeth and the character's signature green hair. Unlike the anarchist Heath Ledger Joker from Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight before him and the gangster Jack Nicholson Joker from Tim Burton's Batman, Leto's makeup depicts a man who is a full blown psychopath from head to toe.

There are rumors that the reason the Joker is imprisoned and becomes a member of the Suicide Squad is that he killed Robin, former sidekick of Ben Affleck's Batman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There is no firm evidence »

Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello Are Writing a New Batman Comic

25 April 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Since Tim Burton’s brooding, black-as-oil Batman hit theaters in 1989, the cinematic world of Bob Kane’s iconic detective has drawn invariably from the comics of Frank Miller. Miller’s 1986 The Dark Knight Returns, a four-part story about Batman’s return from retirement and self-imposed exile, seeped into the crevices of every subsequent comic-book movie, from Sam Raimi’s Darkman to Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy; but it most notably acted as a template for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, which practically owes alimony to Miller. The brooding, hulking, neo-fascist Batman favored by Burton and Nolan stems from Miller’s Reagan-era creation, which erased memories of Adam West’s campy Caped Crusader from the minds of an entire generation.Now Miller will return to pen a new Batman comic, according to the Verge. The comic, called The Dark Knight III: The Master Race (hopefully an ironic title), is the »

The Best Reactions to Jared Leto’s Joker Reveal

25 April 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last night, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the character, director David Ayer revealed our first official full-size look at Jared Leto as The Joker in Warner Bros.’ upcoming Suicide Squad. With Heath Ledger’s iconic performance from The Dark Knight looming large, we figured we’d be in for something entirely different with Leto's take—and we were right. In keeping with this new Zack Snyder-created tone for the Warner Bros. DC Universe that was set in Man of Steel and will be solidified in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Leto’s Joker is like Nolan’s gritty Batman on steroids. The darkness of Nolan’s trilogy remains, but there’s an added twinge of revelry in the comic book source material as opposed to simply translating everything to “real life.” [caption id="attachment_449637" align="alignright" width="320"] Image via David Ayer[/caption] Reactions to the reveal of Leto’s Joker were unsurprisingly »

Twitter Buzz: Reactions To Jared Leto's Joker

25 April 2015 4:47 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Well....that's different.  But time should tell everyone that first reactions to a character's costume have little to no bearing on the performance.  For example, many people derided Bryan Singer and co. for Evan Peter's Quicksilver costume in X-Men: Days of Future Past and the character stole every scene he was in.  If we go back even further, the public outcry was far greater for Christopher Nolan and Heath Ledger's take on the Joker in The Dark Knight.  So lets not rush to judgement too quickly.  When it's all said and done the character may look completely different on screen.  Prison Joker may be shirtless and tattoed but escapee Joker may be wearing the iconic purple suit, which would cover up nearly all of that iconography.  Here are the top reactions to the first look at Suicide Squad's Jared Leto as the Joker. That's a Joker who demands acolytes. »

Second Opinion – Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

25 April 2015 4:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2015.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Bettany, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Thomas Kretschmann, Cobie Smulders, Claudia Kim, Andy Serkis, Don Cheadle, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell and Linda Cardellini.

Synopsis:

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and it is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.

I looked back at my review of The Avengers from 2012 and the opening paragraph struck me as one which I’d never consider writing now;

“Firstly, I love films based on comic book characters and I enjoy many summer blockbusters, so I cannot complain that I wasn’t part of The Avengers’ target audience. Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Batman, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, X-2, X-Men: First Class, »

First Official Picture of Jared Leto as The Joker in 'Suicide Squad'

25 April 2015 12:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Suicide Squad director David Ayer took to Twitter on Friday evening to offer up the first look at Jared Leto as The Joker in the upcoming DC Comics Multiverse feature, as the Oscar winner is sporting several tats including the word "Damaged" across his forehead. I'm not necessarily familiar with the variety of Jokers found in the comic books, but this definitely has the appearance of being far afield Heath Ledger's version in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight and even appears to be far more zany than Jack Nicholson's portrayal in Tim Burton's Batman (1989). In fact, they appear to be going a whole new route, almost the permanently psychologically damaged version if I'm reading this look correctly... am Ic That said, while I've never read a "Batman" comic book in my life, I'm well aware of Alan Moore's "Killing Joke", which seems to be the »

Jared Leto’s Joker Officially Revealed in Suicide Squad Image

24 April 2015 9:52 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

To celebrate the Clown Prince of Crime's 75th birthday, director David Ayer gave those looking forward to Suicide Squad a fitting present: the first full, official look at Jared Leto as The Joker.

Ayer revealed the eye-popping photo on Twitter, showing a shirtless Joker wearing one purple glove (pressed against his green hair) with eyes wide and chrome-toothed mouth open wide in what looks to be a crazed laugh. His chest and arms are covered in tattoos, and his forehead is marked with one telling word: "Damaged."

Time will tell if Leto's performance can come anywhere near the intensely immersive depths of Heath Ledger's mesmerizing turn as the character in 2008's The Dark Knight, but the new take on the Harlequin of Hate is certainly memorable.

Shooting on Suicide Squad is currently underway with Ayer in the director’s chair and Charles Roven and Richard Suckle producing. Warner Bros. »

Time Machine: Nolan and Producer-Wife Following 'Inception' 'Snub'

24 April 2015 6:45 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Christopher Nolan and wife Emma Thomas on the Oscars' Red Carpet Christopher Nolan and wife Emma Thomas at the Academy Awards A very blasé-looking Christopher Nolan, shortlisted as one of the producers of Best Picture Oscar nominee Inception and as the writer of the film's original screenplay, arrives with his wife and fellow Inception producer Emma Thomas at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Of course, Christopher Nolan also directed Inception, but he was not included in the Academy's Best Director shortlist. Instead, nominated were: David Fincher for The Social Network. Darren Aronofsky for Black Swan. Joel and Ethan Coen for True Grit. David O. Russell for The Fighter. Tom Hooper, the eventual winner, for The King's Speech. In case the incredibly successful British filmmaker was disappointed, angered, or downright outraged at being bypassed one more time by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts »

Jared Leto’s Joker: First Picture from Suicide Squad

24 April 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We got a fuzzy shot of Jared Leto referencing The Joker’s appearance in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke and another one showing off his bright green hair, but it's finally time to see the complete look because David Ayer just unveiled the very first Suicide Squad image of Leto in full costume as The Joker on Twitter. I expected something extreme, but I certainly wasn't imagining something quite like this. (Did The Joker have a grill in the source material?) Regardless, this shot is definitely striking to say the least and also has me believing the guy is an absolute lunatic, which is clearly a step in the right direction. However, it wasn't Heath Ledger's hair, makeup and wardrobe that sold the character in The Dark Knight. It was his insanely committed, haunting performance and Leto's certainly got his work cut out for him if he's going »

First Look at Jared Leto's Joker

24 April 2015 6:02 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Check out the first look of Jared Leto's Joker in DC's Suicide Squad!  More Inside!

For weeks, DC and Jared Leto have been teasing us with little snippets here and there of what the Joker will look like.  Well now we know as they finally released our first look at the finished product of Jared Leto as The Joker.

As you can see, this isn't your father's joker or really yours for that matter.  This is actually a completely original depiction of the clown prince of crime.  You can tell they were really trying to go with a more insanely, criminal look.  Taking a step away from the sociopathic crazy clown we're so used to and replacing him with a more "Damaged", as his face tattoo says, criminal inspired theme.  

Many will fondly remember the last time the Joker was shown on the big screen, when Heath Ledger earned »
