Kevin Smith: An Animated Adaptation Of Superman Lives “Would Be Fun To See”

28 November 2016 3:45 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Although it may be some time until the next live action solo Superman film gets here in the form of Man of Steel 2, it never hurts to think about which stories could be adapted to animation in the meantime. While that honor usually goes to comics such as The Death of Superman or All-Star Superman, we can now cross our fingers in hopes that a canned script will soon get similar treatment.

In a recent Facebook Q & A, filmmaker and lifelong lover of comics Kevin Smith was asked if he would like to see his ill-fated Superman Lives script resurrected as an animated film, and here’s what he had to say:

“Oh like based on my script, based on the Superman Lives script? That would be tight, dude. I’m not going to lie, that would be fun to see. That’s something I worked on 20 years ago at this point, »

Justice League Dark Trailer Teams Batman with Constantine and Swamp Thing

15 November 2016 12:16 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in July, a new sneak preview from the Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders Blu-ray release confirmed that the next DC Universe Animated Original Movie will be Justice League Dark. It was also confirmed that Matt Ryan, who played John Constantine on NBC's canceled Constantine series, and guest-starred as the iconic character on Arrow, will return to voice John Constantine in this movie. Today we have the first trailer for Justice Leauge Dark, along with confirmation on even more cast members.

IGN debuted the first trailer earlier today, and confirmed that this movie will be R-rated. This animated adventure will be following in the footsteps of Batman: The Killing Joke. The movie will be rated R for "some disturbing violence," and while we learned about some of the voice cast members in July, even more cast members have now been confirmed.

Our report from July revealed that Jason O'Mara is set to voice Batman, »

Molly Jackson: Happy, Cheery Me

2 November 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

October was kind of a wasteland for me. The constant waves of political discourse were a downer. And now that the election is in a week, it is only getting worse. It’s not that I don’t want to stay tuned to the political scene, it’s just that I need some balance in my life. Right now, everywhere you look is filled with political drama. The country is teetering on the precipice of this election and it’s taking a toll on the country’s mood. So rather than give into the election-induced fatigue that has seeped in the tone of the country, I’m looking for some fun ways to keep upbeat and sane. And since this is ComicMix and all, you can probably guess where I am heading.

No, I am not going to tell you to watch Star Trek. Granted, pretty much every holodeck episode is easy, »

Review: Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders

31 October 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

When Batman debuted on ABC in 1966, I was not yet eight years old, a prime target for this pop-art event. I was already a diehard comic book fan and couldn’t contain my excitement at seeing the heroes and villains come off the four-color pages and onto our then-new color TV. I was very excited and had no clue just how campy it was. That came later as the reruns began on Wpix and throughout the 1970s.

The Batman phenomenon has proven incredibly influential on several generations of comic book fans, professional writers, artists, and animators, and beyond. Thankfully, whatever legal entanglements there were between Greenway Productions, 20th Century Fox, and Warner Bros got ironed out, allowing a new generation of fans to glory in what is now known as Batman ’66. The latest offering is the direct-to-dvd animated feature Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, starring the voices of Adam West, »

Adam West wants to play Thomas Wayne in Ben Affleck’s The Batman

25 October 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having reprised the role of the Dark Knight for the animated movie Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders this year, Adam West has revealed that he’s now keen on another DC role, as he’d like to cameo in Ben Affleck’s The Batman – and he even has a specific role in mind.

“Absolutely,” said West when asked by Comic Book if he’s keen on a cameo in the DC Extended Universe. “You know what I’d love to do? Those guys are all wonderful talents in their own ways, and they approach the role differently, but if I could approach it in a darker way, of course, in a more serious way, however, it would be wonderful to play Bruce Wayne’s father coming back. You know he was murdered, but coming back one dark and stormy lightning-riven night through a library window. Bruce Wayne is there thinking, »

Watch a clip from Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders

15 October 2016 3:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. has released a clip from Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, the upcoming animated movie which sees Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar reprising their roles as Batman, Robin and Catwoman from the classic 1960s TV series; check it out below after the official synopsis…

It’s back to the 1960s as Batman and Robin spring into action when Gotham City is threatened by a quartet of Batman’s most fiendish foes – Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman. This time, the four Super-Villains have combined their wicked talents to hatch a plot so nefarious that the Dynamic Duo will need to go to outer space (and back) to foil their arch enemies and restore order in Gotham City. It’s a truly fantastic adventure that will pit good against evil, good against good, evil against evil … and feature two words that exponentially raise the stakes for both sides: Replicator Ray. »

13 October 2016 3:32 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

At the New York Comic Con this past weekend, Warner Bros. announced that next year will see the release of Batman vs. Two-Face, a follow-up to the upcoming Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, with William Shatner voicing Harvey Dent opposite Adam West’s Caped Crusader.

Batman vs. Two-Face joins the previously announced slate of Justice League Dark, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract and Batman and Harley Quinn, and now thanks to We Got This Covered, we may have an idea of three more potential movies in the pipeline from DC Animation.

Batman and Ninja Turtles Crossover Animated Movie May Happen

13 October 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. held a special theatrical event for their highly-anticipated animated film Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, which reunites original Batman TV series stars Adam West and Burt Ward. During this two-night event, the studio reportedly handed out surveys to moviegoers in select theaters, to gauge their response for future animated movie projects. One of these mentioned in the survey will certainly get some fans very excited, a crossover of Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

A source for We Got This Covered attended one of these screenings, and was given this survey. One of the potential movies listed was a Batman and Ninja Turtles crossover project, which would most likely be an adaptation of a recent comic book crossover. Last year, DC Comics and Idw teamed up for a six-issue monthly mini-series, where both the comic book versions of Batman and the turtles meet up. »
