Last month Warner Home Entertainment released the first instalment of its two-part animated adaptation of Frank Miller's seminal comic book tale Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (which, if you're yet to see, is fantastic), and after screening footage from the concluding chapter at the New York Comic Con this past weekend, WB has now debuted the trailer for Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2, which arrived online earlier today via MTV.
Having donned the cape and cowl once more to defeat the Mutant Leader, The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 sees Batman leading the newly-formed vigilante gang the Sons of Batman in an effort to protect Gotham after a nuclear winter descends over the city following the detonation of a warhead. The Dark Knight's reemergence also causes his arch-nemesis The Joker to awaken from a state of catatonia in Arkham, and as Gotham's new Police Commissioner Ellen Yindel leads a manhunt against Batman, »
Word has it that "Luther" villain Ruth Wilson is up for the role of Carol Danvers — aka Ms. Marvel — in Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel. While the possibility remains firmly in the rumor category, we couldn't stop our minds from running wild with the idea of secret serial killer Alice Morgan carrying the banner as one of the greatest heroes the Marvel Universe has to offer. But what about the rest of the "Luther" cast? Who would they play in Wilson's "Ms. Marvel" movie? Here's what we came up with.
Warning: "Luther" spoilers ahead!
Ruth Wilson as Ms. Marvel
Although I'd always be worried that she'd be this close to seeking out Asgard and going completely psycho-postal on Heimdall, I see why Wilson's name is being connected to Carol Danvers. Physically, Wilson is a perfect fit for one of Marvel's finest heroes, capable of overpowering any villain with little more than a look. »

Jeanne Tripplehorn ("Criminal Minds," CBS, Returns Sept. 26): No television novice after multiple seasons on "Big Love," the co-star of such movies as "Waterworld" and "The Firm" will play a profiler with the Behavioral Analysis Unit.

Kristin Chenoweth ("The Good Wife," CBS, Returns Sept. 30): The spirited Broadway veteran and Emmy winner (for "Pushing Daisies") seemed an ideal match for the role of a political reporter zeroing in on Peter (Chris Noth).

Starz reports that actor Toby Stephens ("Space Cowboys") will star as 'Captain Flint' in the new Michael Bay-produced "Treasure Island" prequel TV series "Black Sails", debuting on the network in 2014. The first season of 8 episodes promises as much sex and ultra-violence as Starz' "Spartacus" :

Threatened with extinction on all sides, he and his crew fight for the survival of 'New Providence Island', the most notorious criminal haven of its day - a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality.

As the clock ticks down to the arrival of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 later this month, Warner Home Video has released a new clip which features a little humour courtesy of Bruce Wayne's loyal friend and butler Alfred Pennyworth (who must surely be over a hundred years old at this point in time).
Lending his voice to Alfred alongside Peter Weller's Bruce Wayne is Radio Hall of Fame commentator and talk show host Michael Jackson, who previously voiced the character of Ganthet in the earlier DC Universe Animated Original Movie, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights.
Check out the clip right here:
Meanwhile, here's another clip released earlier this week:
Joining Weller and Jackson in the voice cast for The Dark Knight Returns are David Selby (The Social Network) as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter (Modern Family) as Carrie Kelley / Robin, Wade Williams (The Dark Knight Rises) as Two-Face, Michael McKean »

Back in March, we reported that writers Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia came on board to write Y: The Last Man for New Line Cinema. Today, we have word that the studio is "very pleased" with the script, and are currently seeking directors.
The project is an adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan's graphic novel that chronicle the exploits of a man and his pet monkey, the only survivors from a plague that wiped out every male human and mammal on Earth. They also must contend with a tribe of Amazonian women, determined to wipe out Earth's last man. D.J. Caruso was the last director attached to the project before departing two years ago. Louis Leterrier was also circling the adaptation at one time, although a deal was never reached.

Aside from the fact he’s become involved in a lawsuit as his former and current talent agencies duke it out over commission payments, it’s been a pretty good week for Christopher Nolan, with The Dark Knight Rises pushing its box office take beyond the $1 billion mark this past Sunday. Having surpassed the haul of its predecessor The Dark Knight, the ‘epic conclusion’ to the Dark Knight trilogy is now the highest grossing instalment of the Batman movie franchise, while Nolan becomes only the »

Warner Premiere is set to release the first of the two-part animated adaptation of Frank Miller’s seminal comic book tale Batman: The Dark Knight Returns later this month and while the majority of the voice cast has been known for some time, one character who has so far remained mute is that of the Clown Prince of Crime. Well, not anymore, as TV Guide has revealed that Michael Emerson (Lost, Person of Interest) will lend his voice to the maniacal villain, while they’ve also released the first image of the Clown Prince of Crime from the upcoming straight-to-video release.
“He's one of those great villains that an actor like me likes to play because he has layers — he has a face for the world and a face for himself,” stated Emerson about the appeal of the character. “He is, in a way, a villain who is a natural actor. »
If Mark Hamill can't voice the Joker, then Michael Emerson is certainly a solid runner-up. The "Lost" baddie, currently getting his creep on via CBS' "Person of Interest," is the latest actor to laugh in Batman's face, voicing the Clown Prince of Crime in "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2."
"He's one of those great villains that an actor like me likes to play because he has layers," the artist formerly known as Benjamin Linus, formerly Henry Gale, told TV Guide about his attraction to the iconic comic book villain. "He has a face for the world and a face for himself."
"He is, in a way, a villain who is a natural actor," Emerson continued. "All of that is that is delightful and confounding at the same time."
Emerson is just the latest big-name voice actor to join the DC Universe, and "The Dark Knight Returns" in particular. »
