In 2010, video game developer Double Helix was developing a Justice League video game. The was never completed and no footage from it had appeared, until today. We got see the Man Of Steel and The Dark Knight duke it out just like what we saw in Injustice: Gods Among Us, which was made after Double Helix's. Now, we can check out some concept art that was created for the game by conceptual illustrator Darran Douglas Hurlbut (via Cb). There are character designs for Batman (Bruce Wayne), Green Lantern (John Stewart), Star Sapphire (Carol Ferris), Captain Cold (Leonard Snart), The Trickster (Axel Walker), Mr. Freeze (Dr. Victor Fries) and Martian Manhunter (J'onn J'onzz). Which one is your favorite? »
The remake/reboot of "The Crow" franchise has been in the works for some time, but the film has gone through an awkward development phase and has seen a delay in production. Filmmaker F. Javier Gutierrez dropped out late last year, ultimately being replaced by Corin Hardy in December.
Frequent music video director Hardy is in Sundance right now to promote his feature film debut "The Hollow" and spoke to Fangoria about what he's aiming for with this reboot:
"I...want to open the story up in such a way that the Crow is now part of a world where there are the Marvel movies and The Dark Knight movies. I intend it to be incredibly emotional and brutal, and all the things you'd want from a Crow film.
I want to make a movie that I would have wanted to see, as a huge fan of The Crow... I'm »

Late last year, we learned that Luke Evans was on the verge of dropping out of The Crow remake, due to the slow gestation process the film has been experiencing. The actor has quite a few projects on his impending slate, but there has never been any official word on whether or not he has dropped out. Director Corin Hardy didn't exactly clarify if a new actor was being sought as he gave a couple of select interviews at this year's Sundance in support of his feature film debut The Hollow. He did, however, hint at the tone of this reboot, and compared it to the Marvel movies and The Dark Knight trilogy.
"I...want to open the story up in such a way that the Crow is now part of a world where there are the Marvel movies and The Dark Knight movies. I intend it to be incredibly emotional and brutal, »
Here's what you already know: HBO's upcoming Westworld is an adaptation of the 1973 film written and directed by visionary author Michael Crichton. Like the author's best-known work, Jurassic Park, it's about a theme park where rather unique attractions (in Westworld's case, lifelike androids) break from their assigned roles and kill the guests. HBO's series version is from Intersteller and The Dark Knight co-writer Jonathan Nolan (brother of director Christopher) and Lisa Joy (Burn Notice), along with mega-producer J.J. Abrams and Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk. It boasts an impressive cast led by Anthony Hopkins (in his first TV series regular role), James Marsden, »

In December, Relativity Studios chose video music director Corin Hardy to replace F. Javier Gutiérrez as the new director of their reboot of The Crow. Hardy is at the Sundance film festival showing off his feature film debut The Hollow and while he was there he took some time to express how much of fan he is of James O'Barr's graphic novel and the original film. He also shared what he would like his version of The Crow to be. “I also want to open the story up in such a way that the Crow is now part of a world where there are the Marvel movies and The Dark Knight movies," Hardy told Fangoria. "I intend it to be incredibly emotional and brutal, and all the things you’d want from a Crow film. I want to make a movie that I would have wanted to see, as »
Things aren’t looking good over in Batman Eternal. Not for former police commissioner Jim Gordon. Not for Batman. And not for us.
Not for Gordon, because eight issues into this fifty-two issue maxi-series, he’s still sitting in Blackgate Penitentiary awaiting trial for 162 counts of manslaughter. Not for Batman, because his best friend and former police commissioner is in Blackgate leaving Batman with interim commissioner Jack Forbes. And not for us, because eight issues into the fifty-two issue maxi-series that is Batman Eternal, we’ve realized its glacial pacing shows no signs of melting even with global warming. Seriously, this story has more padding than bubble wrap.
So what is it this time that’s got my spleen venting like a Yellowstone geyser? It’s interim police commissioner Jack Forbes. When we first met Forbes, back in Batman: The Dark Knight # 1, he was a lieutenant in Internal Affairs and »

When the Kingdom of Altantis prepares to retaliate for an attack on their people by the Us Military, it is up to the Justice League to stop this rising threat while Arthur Curry finds out about his real origins.
Okay, I have been a long-time fan of DC’s animated universe (having started out as a kid watching Batman:Tas through to Justice League Unlimited and then to the movies like Superman:Doomsday, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and Justice League: Flashpoint) and it wasn’t until the New 52 began that I started to read the comics, which unfortunately gave me background knowledge of what happens in this particular story and so diluted my overall view of this film.
So Justice League: Throne of Atlantis is a »

The multiplex movie theater just minutes from my house was the location of my first real job and some of my first memorable movie-going experiences. I worked during immensely packed midnight screenings of The Dark Knight and saw many childhood favorites there. But over time, I wondered if our movie theater might even still be there in a few years. Picture quality was bad, and so were the movies to the point that I would avoid the place if I could.
Within the last six months however, our movie theater added a bar, a pizza place, a rewards program, vastly improved projection and sound, discount specials on weeknights, an easy to use mobile app, giant reclining chairs and reserved seating.
In that time, I’ve seen our movie theater rapidly become the hot place to be in our small Chicago suburb with little else to do. I’ve seen it »

In the summer of 2000 when the original X-Men film hit at the box office, it sparked an entirely new era for the creation of motion pictures derived from comic books. Of course, superheroes have persistently been some of the most popular movies ever created, with films like The Dark Knight and The Avengers grossing $1 billion internationally, but one thing that Hollywood has always wanted was a hook for a movie provided by a good idea. Current titles like Brian K. Vaughan's Saga or Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead have helped to prove that, in addition to popular past titles like Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Preacher or Grant Morrison's The Invisibles, they all help to illustrate that...

Though it will be the role he's forever remembered for, there was a lot more to Heath Ledger than just The Joker. Of course, had he not died on January 22nd, 2008, it's likely that his role in The Dark Knight would have seen the Australian actor's career taken to another level, resulting in him becoming one of the world's biggest stars. On the other hand, he could have suffered the same fate as many other actors who deliver iconic performances and struggled to find a role away from the Clown Prince of Crime. Sadly, we will never know. Despite the fact that The Dark Knight wasn't the final movie he would appear in on the big screen, it's a huge part of Ledger's legacy, and he would receive a number of awards following its release, including a posthumous Oscar. His Joker has since become an icon, influencing the character's portrayal »
Those of you who frequent our website often will notice in posts about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Scoot McNairy is noted as starring in the movie in a “as-yet-unrevealed roles”. During an interview with USA Today, McNairy was grilled about the movie, but wasn’t letting up any information.
“Man, I would love to spend hours with you about it but I don’t know if you’d see me in another movie if I did,” the actor joked before calling director Zack Snyder “an incredible filmmaker and an incredible visionary”.
“Playing in that world with comic books you’ve been reading since you were a kid, being someone in that world, it’s awesome,” he added.
Rumours about McNairy’s character have spread from Jimmy Olsen, »

According to a new report from Forbes.com, new rumors are floating about, claiming that Ben Affleck's Batman from the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" super hero/action flick, might be making a cameo appearance in the upcoming "Suicide Squad' super hero flick. They went on to say that there are reports claiming Batman's scene will likely be at the end of the movie and focused on certain circumstances involving the Joker. From there, that would set up the Joker to be a possible/likely antagonist in the solo Batman movie that’s planned to come out in the next few years, which they've heard will take some inspiration from Frank Miller’s comic book series The Dark Knight Returns — the third issue of which is a story about Batman facing off against an escaped Joker. They've also heard that Gotham City Police Commissioner ,Ellen Yindel, »
From humble beginnings as comic book characters, both Batman and Superman have emerged as globally recognisable icons. Whether they appear on the silver screen or as virtual slot icons on mobile websites such as au.royalvegascasino.com, they now front lucrative franchises that generate billions of dollars on an annual basis. These franchises will both gain a new layer in 2016, as DC get set to release the highly anticipated and potentially record-breaking movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
While the true nature and content of this film has yet to be fully understood, we can expect a riotous big screen adventure that incorporates spectacular special effects. What has yet to be determined is where the film will ultimately sit among the pantheon of great DC movies, so let’s consider the competition and the following rival titles: -
The Dark Knight (2008)
The Dark Knight is the most successful Batman-inspired film to date. »

Welcome To Issue 78!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation.
It seems a lot of you are excited about the possibility of Spider-Man rejoining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and rightly so. I’ve been tweeted at, e-mailed and asked directly a whole bunch of detailed questions about how/when/if Spider-Man is making the move, and I can’t get more detailed at the moment.
Here’s why: the stuff I’m hearing is not coming from the rumored “Spider-Man” summit, so I don’t know if it occurred or what the subject matter will be. Marvel has plans as to how it is going to use Spider-Man moving forward and »
A couple of days ago some potential plot details leaked for David Ayer's Suicide Squad, and now there is an even more interesting rumor that you're gonna want to hear. According to Forbes, Ben Affleck's Batman could appear in the movie, and his appearance will set up a solo film in which he will face off against Jared Leto's The Joker.
We've already heard that Batman will briefly appear on video monitors, but it sounds like his inclusion is going to be bigger than that. Apparently, The Dark Knight will show up at the end of the movie when The Joker escapes from prison, and this could essentially be the start of a Batman Vs. Joker movie. The site reports that it "will take some inspiration from Frank Miller’s comic book series The Dark Knight Returns — the third issue of which is a story about Batman »

In case you clicked on this by accident, or somehow are unclear about what you're stepping into...ahem...*Spoiler Alert*
Last week, our editor-in-chief published an exclusive report that offered an inside look at WB/DC's Suicide Squad. In that report, we touched on many subjects, but one was the prospect of Ben Affleck's Batman making an appearance. At the time, our source had informed us that it would be something small, not in-the-flesh, and limited to him being shown as part of some footage that one of the characters plays in the film. Now Forbes has stepped in and added their own two cents on the matter.
The report states:
"I’ve heard for weeks that Batman will appear in Suicide Squad, supposedly in an in-story scene, likely at the end of the film and focused on certain circumstances involving the Joker."
The sequence he mentions would likely »

In the following interview with HeyUGuys, Matthew Vaughn sets the record straight in regards to his comments about Christopher Nolan, making it clear that he's a big fan of The Dark Knight Trilogy director, but that he still believes the likes of Spider-Man and Superman should not follow the same dark route as Batman. Talk of Nolan never winning an Oscar then turns to the Kingsman: The Secret Service helmer's love of Guardians of the Galaxy and his disappointment that the movie has received little in the way of mainstream awards attention. There's a lot of other interesting comments in the video, so be sure to check it out in the player below for the full interview! »
Warning – could be spoilers ahead…
There were a few rumours reported a couple of days about the script for Suicide Squad that indicated Batman would be mentioned by Amanda Waller, but not featured. Well, according to new rumours, that’s all false.
According to Mark Hughes of Forbes (who does know his stuff), Batman will feature at the end of the movie. Not in video, not just mentioned, but in-story. Hughes claims that Batman will make an appearance after The Joker escapes from Arkham and this will kick start his solo movie, which will take inspiration from the Joker section of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.
“This would set up the Joker as a possible/likely antagonist in the solo Batman movie that’s planned in the next few years, and which I’ve heard will take some inspiration from Frank Miller’s comic book series ‘The Dark Knight »
