Long before Hollywood’s superhero revolution introduced the world to everything from Infinity Gauntlets to quick-witted ant-commanding burglars, gaming was the only other medium doing the source material justice.
Granted it was the Arkham games that really kickstarted everything and proved a superhero title could actually be considered one of the greatest games of all time, regardless of genre, but going as far back as Batman’s movie tie-in on the Genesis/Mega Drive, there’s something about gaming as an active medium that really gives these properties some of their best treatment.
Civilian in harm’s way? You’ll be the one to don Spidey’s web-shooters before swinging in to save the day. Troupe of gangsters arming up to take over a shipping yard full of cargo? It’ll be you under that cape and cowl, breaking jaws and leaving them all in a »

One of the best things to come out of horror comics in years, Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra‘s Dark Horse series Colder has returned with its third and final arc, Toss The Bones—the first issue of which hits shops this week. The duo have kept outdoing themselves, and upon getting an advance glimpse of Toss The Bones #1, I couldn’t resist picking their brains once again about this gorgeous and exciting series.
Famous Monsters. So… Nimble Jack is back. What’s your favorite thing about writing or drawing him? I’ve heard people compare him to the Joker, but he seems even creepier to me. So congrats on that.
Paul Tobin. The Joker has had zero influence on Nimble Jack. The Joker never acts insane; he acts like someone with otherwise very focused goals who’s trying to act insane. When I write Nimble Jack, I try to »

Does Katy Perry's scent have an edible smell? The 'Dark Horse' hitmaker has created a number of her own fragrances and has admitted she chooses what notes to include based on the fact she likes the smell of sweet treats. Asked how new perfume Mad Potion differs from her last fragrance in new documentary 'Katy Perry: Making Of The Pepsi Super Bowl', she says: ''Killer Queen was very royal, a bit feminist, rebellious and floral. Mad potion is my signature scene right now. It is a concoction of different exotic vanillas and musks. It's gourmet - with a little bit of a twist. The musk is androgynous to me. Stuff that isn't so on the nose appeals to me. It's sweeter perfume. ''I like to smell edible. Mad Potion is playful and the name is a reference to a mad hatter of sorts. It's a bit kooky and weird. »
In some ways, 1994's The Mask was ahead of its time. Sure, when we try to pick out the greatest comic-book adaptations today, we're spoilt for choice: with Marvel entering the third phase of their cinematic universe, transforming formerly obscure characters into mainstream icons, and DC's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice ready to kick their movies up into a higher gear, the list of adaptations looks set to grow and grow.
Still, movies based on comic books remain largely superhero-centric, which is a shame considering the huge range of fantastic titles out there deserving of a larger audience. Just over 20 years ago, particularly in the UK, comic books and their respective characters were generally seen as childish, goofy, for nerds only – and the lack »
You’ve seen actor Cliff Curtis slip into the skin of countless characters before, taking on numerous ethnicities as a true chameleon of the big screen. The New Zealander is one of the most prolific and accomplished character actors of his generation, having wracked up a list of filmmaker collaborators that would make any colleague jealous.
The list is impressive, probably because great directors know what they’re going to get out of the actor: David O. Russell (“Three Kings”), Martin Scorsese (“Bringing Out the Dead”), Michael Mann (“The Insider”), Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day”), Frank Darabont (“The Majestic”), Darren Aronofsky (“The Fountain”), Danny Boyle (“Sunshine”) — each presenting a unique opportunity to stand out in an ensemble cast.

Number One: Bitch Planet
Bitch Planet ran only five issues. I know it’s coming back in a new mini-series story arc thingy, but nobody – not even Valentina De Landro and Kelly Sue DeConnick – have any business producing such a compelling series and not publish it every damn month for the rest of their lives. And I’m counting string theory afterlife dimensions.
I mean, look folks, characters like Batman, the X-Men and My Little Pony are being published weekly under a variety of titles. Marvel’s pumping out so much Deadpool that even Emily S. Whitten has a hard time following them all. So is it so much to ask that we get Bitch Planet at least once each month? These are two incredibly talented cartoonists. I’m sure they have lives and loved ones and such, but I don’t care. October will come and go without an issue of Bitch Planet, »

Katy Perry has never looked sexier! The "Roar" singer showed off her assets as she and designer Jeremy Scott were honored with a handprint ceremony at the Tcl Chinese Theater on Tuesday in Hollywood, California. Perry looked stunning at the event, wearing a plunging black gown that even showed some leg with a thigh-high slit. The "Dark Horse" singer also debuted a new 'do as well -- trading in her signature black tresses for some caramel highlights. Scott matched the pop star at the event, opting for a sequined black tux sans shirt. The longtime friends likewise posed for photos on the red carpet before checking out the designer's new film, "Jeremy Scott: The People's Designer," which premiered after the handprint ceremony. It also sounds like Perry played a big part in Jeremy's movie. "Katy is the arc of the film," he told Us Weekly at the event. "When you see it, »

Dwayne McDuffie and I were friends, good friends.
When he first came to La from New York, I was the one who drove him around for weeks. He didn’t drive. Who does in New York? I took him shopping to the barbershop, comic book stores, wherever. If he needed to go somewhere, I was his ride.
His first Christmas in California, Dwayne was my date for director Bill Duke’s Christmas party. He and Bill became the center of the evening engaging in a conversation so riveting everyone – everyone – who went into Bill’s huge ass kitchen stayed and listened. In the African American community the kitchen is always the center of a holiday dinner, regardless if you live in a small apartment or a mansion.
This was something else beyond the holiday tradition. Dwayne and Bill were engaged in conversation that made black Hollywood stop put down the chicken and listen. »

This is pretty wah-ah-ah-acky! Move over Ryan Adams, because musician and man of a million voices Anthony Vincent has released the most rockin' version of Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood," feat. Kendrick Lamar. In an edited video posted on his YouTube page this week, Vincent sings the pop song in a studio as a heavy metal track, emulating the distinctive, raspy vocals of Disturbed singer David Draiman. He also performs electric guitar and bass guitar. Coincidentally, Vincent also paid tribute to Katy Perry, the rumored subject of "Bad Blood," in a 2014 re-imagining of her song "Dark Horse," which he sings in 20 »

A year ago, attendees at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival were stunned when a new player in their midst — Broad Green Pictures — grabbed everyone’s attention by paying $3 million for U.S. rights to the Andrew Garfield-Michael Shannon drama “99 Homes,” directed by Ramin Bahrani.
“We had seven people and zero distribution,” recalls Broad Green CEO Gabriel Hammond. “We got on the phone with Ramin and spelled out why we were so passionate about his film and what we were going to do.m”
With Hammond and his brother Daniel, the chief creative officer, Broad Green has bolstered its slate to a dozen films and staffed up to 88 since then, and in November will open new offices in Hollywood.

Memes aren't meant to be taken seriously. And yet, that's exactly what happened when the media reported that Katy Perry sent a rude, expletive-filled message from a fan's phone during the Australian leg of her Prismatic World Tour. The meme was born out of truth, as Perry did indeed confiscate a fan's phone and read one of her messages aloud: "Lol I heard she can't sing live at all." The singer snapped a selfie and told the crowd, "He's not going to be happy about that. Just sent him a little picture." The fan clarified that the message came from a former flame. "He's your ex-boyfriend and you still have a WhatsApp group with him?" the 30-year-old "Dark Horse" singer »
