Comic Books 101: DC Comics-Reading Batman Pt 2

Previously I wrote an article helping new readers figure out the best places to pick up Batman from DC Comics . For those confused or still uncertain about major events in DC Comics (which connect to various “jumping on” points for Batman) I wrote an article detailing the big company altering stories in my history of the DC Universe article. This time around I am going to open up a bit more on the adventures of The Dark Knight, and take a look at some of the bigger, and in my opinion, best stories for potential Batman readers. This will include small and big story lines that exist in various continuities within the DC Comics publication history for the character. There won’t be any set “this is better than that” to the stories listed, simply moments in the characters publication where a »

Ahead of Comic Con later this week, Warner Bros. Pictures has teased their presentation on Saturday with a "Lego Batman Movie" 15-second clip which you can see below. The Caped Crusader, both in his Lego and likely his live-action Ben Affleck form, will take over Hall H that morning. "The Lego Batman Movie" is slated to open in February.

Meanwhile a new rumor has popped up about the Affleck-directed solo "Batman" film currently in development. Reports initially indicated the "Under the Hood" storyline was being adapted, then ditched in favor of something more ambitious.

Batman-On-Film has caught wind of what that more ambitious idea might be - the rumor being that the film will primarily take place within the walls of Arkham Asylum with Batman locked in, but it will be an original story and Not a direct adaptation of the acclaimed "Batman: Arkham Asylum" comic.

At 10.27 a.m. on the morning of Saturday 4th June 2016 gaming enthusiasts across the land screamed in a collective wail of distress as it was announced that the following week’s episode of Videogame Nation was to be its last ever.

The outpouring of disbelief across social media was immediate. Fans who felt that the show had finally landed on a fun, winning formula for gaming TV were doubly dismayed.

As emerged in the days following the announcement, Videogame Nation was a victim of circumstance. Challenge TV chose not to renew the »

Ben Affleck Says His Solo Batman Film Will Feature A 'Mostly' Original Story

1 June 2016 5:59 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There's been a lot of rumours from both fans and publications about Ben Affleck's (currently untitled) Batman solo film and what it might adapt from the comics. One of the more notable rumours was the "Under The Hood" storyline, considering we see Jason Todd's Robin suit in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. However, according to the actor, who is also directing and co-writing the film with Geoff Johns, he plans to put an original spin on the film's story. "I think what I would do, what I probably would do, is in some ways what Zack did with this movie, which is to borrow certain things from the great comic books, but create an original story around it because I wouldn't want the fans to already know the story and be familiar, but I would borrow, steal, great things that have been done before in the comics. »

Croc Actor Talks Batman's "Squad" Interaction

17 April 2016 12:03 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Ben Affleck's Batman continues to be shaped into the cornerstone of the building DC Extended Universe onscreen it seems. David Ayer's upcoming "Suicide Squad" film not only includes the Batman in character, but it seems all the members of the team will have had past encounters with the Gotham City protector before events of the movie kick off.

Speaking with Fandango about his role as Killer Croc, actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje discussed that relationship:

"All of these so-called villains are villains that Batman has had some history with and caught and brought into Arkham Prison. So whether it comes before or after I'm not sure, but I do know we've all been captured by him and imprisoned in Arkham, so we've all got a gripe to bear against the ol' Bat."

In the same interview, Akinnuoye-Agbaje also revealed he underwent five hours of make-up and prosthetics every day he »

10 Actors Who Could Play Red Hood In The Batman

26 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Surprisingly, Warner Bros. still hasn’t dated the long rumoured Batman movie starring and directed by Ben Affleck. It could be that both parties are waiting to see how well Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice does before committing to anything (Affleck doesn’t want another Daredevil after all), but rumours are already pointing to it being an adaptation of the classic “Under the Hood” storyline.

That comic featured the return of former Robin, Jason Todd, as a vigilante named the Red Hood, a name and look inspired by The Joker’s moniker before he was transformed into the Clown Prince of Crime. Jason was actually murdered by the villain, but returned years later hungry for vengeance against both him and Batman.

ABC Family Detaching From ‘Hallowed’ Brand Associations with Freeform Name Change

9 January 2016 11:10 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC Family president Tom Ascheim came to the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Saturday prepared to defend the decision to change the cabler’s name to Freeform as of Jan. 12.

Ascheim said the moniker makeover was the result of months of research and focus group studies. They went through thousands of options before settling on Freeform, a process he called “tireless and tiresome.” The goal is to evoke a sense of freedom, spontaneity and unrestrained attitudes that reflect the coming-of-age experiences of the cabler’s target demo of so-called “becomers” — which Ascheim described as the age range “between your first kiss and your first kid.”

Freeform, Ascheim argued, also reflects the “moment in our media heritage we’re all experiencing where content is coming in every shape, size and format on every screen. (Freeform) seems to promise to deliver on that expectation that our young audience is having. »
