Batman Facts: 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Dark Knight

1 May 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Happy Batman Day, everyone! Around the world, May 1st may mark a spring holiday, but here, it marks the first appearance of the Dark Knight, in Detective Comics No. 27, in 1939.

For the past 76 years, the Caped Crusader has been fighting Gotham City evildoers in comic books, movies, TV shows, and pretty much anywhere else you can shine a Bat-signal. Throughout the years, Bruce Wayne's alter ego has gone through many incarnations, not just in actors (from Adam West to Michael Keaton to Christian Bale to Ben Affleck, among the many), but also in character, from haunted avenger to squeaky-clean do-gooder to campy clown to kinky prowler to world-weary fighter. He's due for yet another change this week, with the releases of DC's Batman No. 40 -- in which Bruce Wayne and the Joker finally kill each other (or do they?) and a special issue of DC's Divergence, where an undisclosed character »

Justice League: Gods & Monsters Trailer Features a Vampire Batman

16 April 2015 5:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While maybe not quite exciting as the Star Wars trailer, Warner Bros. Home Video has unveiled the trailer for its next direct-to-video DC Comics title Justice League: Gods & Monsters. The animated film comes from producer/animator Bruce Timm and blends the DC Universe with Greek myth, offering up an alternate reality in which the Justice League enjoys totalitarian rule, Batman is the vampiric Man-Bat, Zod is Superman’s father, and Wonder Woman is the spawn of Ares, God of War. Directed by Sam Liu (Batman: Year One), the movie is based on an original story by Timm and co-producer Alan Burnett (The Batman) and features the voices of Michael C. Hall as Batman, Benjamin Bratt as Superman, Tamara Taylor (Bones) as Wonder Woman, Jason Isaacs as Lex Luthor, Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) as Lois Lane, and C. Thomas Howell as Dr. Will Magnus.

Rise of the Legend: Wong Fei Hung Returns

13 March 2015 6:16 PM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

I just had the opportunity to check out Rise of the Legend, the latest in the pantheon of Wong Fei Hung movies that fans (like me) have enjoyed over the years. From Kwan Tak Hing, to Liu Chia Hui, to Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Zhao Wen Zho, Chin Kar Lok; Fei Hung was even played by a girl in one of my favorite films, Iron Monkey (‘93.) Angie Tsang played a young Wong Fei Hung in one of my favorite (actually) depictions of the character in that film. My personal favorite Wong Fei Hung was Jet Li, but this new kid might just have the goods, so to speak, Eddie Peng brings a youth and grittiness to the character that I honestly haven’t seen before. You may know Eddie Peng as perhaps the most interesting part of the Kung Fu Hero/Zero series, playing the villain Fang Zi Jing. I have to say, »

Questions raised by Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises

2 February 2015 1:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What kind of Catwoman did Anne Hathaway turn out to be in Christopher Nolan's final Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises?

“I am Catwoman: hear me… make you question things, a bit”

Some confusing events can only be fully dealt with and understood with time. And so, three years later, it finally feels safe to look back at Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, and some of the questions you may have found yourself pondering in the cinema at the time.

Before going in and finding your seat, the questions were along the lines of: can Anne Hathaway pull this off? Will her performance stop the recurring nightmares about Halle Berry’s attempt? How will this film even work without the Joker? You got your answers on those – the nightmares will never stop – but here are some Qs we’re still struggling with…

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Justice League: Throne of Atlantis’

28 January 2015 7:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With so much time to kill waiting for the Batman-Superman movie, Warner Bros. continues to feed the DC Comics base red meat with its direct-to-Blu-Ray animated movies, creating a satisfying superhero experience on the relative cheap. Enter “Justice League: Throne of Atlantis,” an adaptation of the graphic novel that brings together the team to defend the surface from an Atlantean invasion, while simultaneously providing an Aquaman origin story. Frankly, that’s a lot of ground to cover in a mere 72 minutes, but there’s time for plenty of action and pointed banter to, ahem, tide fans over.

Aquaman can easily be reduced to silliness — an underwater Dr. Dolittle — but he’s introduced as drifter Arthur Curry (voiced by Matt Lanter), who can wipe out an assortment of bar ruffians but doesn’t know about his true lineage as the half-human, half-Atlantean heir to an undersea kingdom.

Meanwhile, his half-brother Orm »

Gotham, Ep. 1.12, “What The Little Bird Told Him” is charged with shocks & chilling development

19 January 2015 6:31 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gotham Season 1, Episode 12: ‘What The Little Bird Told Him’

Written by Ben Edlund

Directed by Eagle Egilsson

Airs Mondays at 8pm Et on Fox

In this week’s Gotham, Gordon returns to the Gotham City Police Department to regain his Detective rank, but in order to do that, he has to prove himself to Commissioner Loeb by bringing in the Arkham Asylum inmate that escaped in “Rogues’ Gallery” under his watch. This episode shows Gordon revitalized and more focused, with the understanding that he needs to be at the Gcpd and nowhere else; it’s where he wants to be, and where he can do the most good. We have seen Gordon be all gung ho before, as in “Penguins Umbrella”, but this time he’s taking charge and asserting himself, whereas before, he was acting reckless, with unrealistic goals.

While Gordon is busy reclaiming his position at the Gcpd, »

Gotham, Episode 1.11, “Rogues’ Gallery” shows the creepy inside of Arkham Asylum

5 January 2015 5:00 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gotham Season 1, Episode 11: “Rogues’ Gallery”

Written by Sue Chung

Directed by Otto Scott

Airs Mondays at 8pm Et on Fox

Gotham returns from its break with a solid episode that continues the shifting status quo, with many darker turns and just a few flashes of hope. “Rogues’ Gallery” gives us our first real look into how Arkham Asylum is run and it’s just as criminally understaffed and underdeveloped as one would imagine. Gordon gets no sympathy from his managing director Gerry Lang, as he is constantly berated by Lang for having inmates break into fights under his watch. The only promising turn of events during Gordon’s time at Arkham Asylum is his alliance with Dr. Leslie Thompkins. She is a beacon of hope that will be an essential asset in Gordon’s war against the corruption of Gotham City.
