Five Places Where We'd Like to See Batman this Spring

Credit: PixabayBatman is one busy guy. As well as regularly appearing on our TV screens, at the cinema, in comic strips and at conventions up and down the country, he is also showing up in some more everyday locations. For example, on a trip far away from Gotham City, he recently visited Norwich Castle Mall in a replica Batmobile from the 1989 Batman Film. Eve since he introduced himself to the wide public as played by Adam West in the television series that ran from 1966 to 1968, Batman has been a favourite pop culture icon, and for a number of reasons - not only marketing either - he's never been absent from the spotlight. Here are five of our favourite places that we’d like Batman pop up in soon. At A PartyWhat better place for the superhero to show up than at a party? Ideally, we'd like him to pop up

Batman Unlimited: Mech Vs. Mutants Trailer And Release Date Revealed

Although many of us appreciate mature animated films featuring The Dark Knight such as the recently released Batman: Bad Blood or the upcoming R-rated Batman: The Killing Joke, we must be honest in saying that the character resonates with people of all ages and, therefore, movies appealing to the younger crowd are much needed. On September 13, Batman Unlimited: Mech vs. Mutants aims to fill that void when it arrives on DVD. As of now, no Blu-Ray release date has been given, but we’ll keep you posted.

The Batman Unlimited franchise started as a toy line that saw Batman, along with his heroic cohorts and villains, given somewhat futuristic reinterpretations. From that spawned two animated films, Animal Instincts and Monster Mayhem, along with a web series. While they have produced bizarre scenarios such as Batman riding at robotic T-Rex that shoots lasers (albeit in a virtual world), the series

Supergirl Season 1 Episode 10 Review – ‘Childish Things’

Martin Carr reviews the tenth episode of Supergirl

A few things have caused me to cast aside trivial preoccupations. The double departure of David Bowie and Alan Rickman has knocked me for six. Whilst the red band trailer for Deadpool and Hard R rated lip synch rendition of ‘Pony’ by one Jenna Dewan Tatum, has shredded my idea of Lucy Lane. Then there was Supergirl which took a decidedly dark turn with the arrival of ‘Toyman’.

With the twisted logic reserved only for comic book villains, we watched Henry Czerny’s Schott Snr. break out from a maximum security prison. Using creepy toys and a unique parental style to rekindle lost emotional bonds. Slowly revealing a father living in a past clouded by misplaced rivalry and bitter resentment.

Elsewhere Henshaw is going through a crisis of conscience. Neither willing to use his alter ego for ulterior motives, nor completely at ease with the alternative.

100 Essential Action Scenes: Attacks!

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.

If you’ve seen a film montage in the last 10 years, then you’ve been witness to at least one of the scenes mentioned on this list: the vibrating water glass from Jurassic Park signaling the T-Rex prowling nearby. It’s the perfect type of image to tell the audience: something is coming. These flashes of exhilaration are fan-favorites, and it’s no surprise to see them featured prominently as the centerpieces for some of the greatest films ever. It’s the invasion when the aliens come out of the sky, the

Fox Orders Lucifer Pilot

  • Boomtron
Fox is serious about growing their comic book fandom, as they ordered up a pilot of Lucifer. Last year we told you that they were considering the comic book as a new possible show. It appears that their success with Gotham has changed their minds for them, as they are now working on it. Tom Kapinos has taken it to be his pet project. The character from the comic book series is reportedly based off David Bowie, but we have no news regarding if the TV pilot will stay true to that. We also have no news on casting yet or slate premier date.

I am going to be honest, I am not digging this idea. The comic book series was not as popular as others and it be too dark for others. It is just not as a strong idea as Gotham was. I suppose we should give them time to develop it more,

Lego Avengers and Jurassic World Games Coming This Year From Tt Games

The Lego Group, Tt Games and WB Games have announced this summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron and Jurassic World films will each have a tie-in videogame. Lego Jurassic World will arrive in stores this June while Lego Marvel's Avengers is scheduled for a fall release.

Tt Games slyly added a teaser for Lego Jurassic World in Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. Completing the campaign mode initiated a credits sequence in which 1966 Batman and Robin ascended the side of a building. During the ascent, a T-Rex Lego figure from Jurassic Park appears while the famous John Williams score plays behind him.

Both of these new games will cover more than the film they're slated to release with. Lego Marvel's The Avengers will span the events of The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, while Lego Jurassic World will cover all four films. Of course, full Lego toy lines for each major

19 new comic book TV shows airing in 2015 and beyond

Daredevil, Preacher, Supergirl... Lost track of the zillions of comic book shows to grace our televisions from 2015? Here's our cheat sheet.

It’s a wonderful time to be a TV-binging comic book fan. In fact, if you were a little tactical about your viewing habits (and not too fussy in your Marvel/DC preference), we’re approaching a state where you could probably fill an ‘all the soap operas’ shaped hole in your schedule every day with the stuff of capes, cowls and crime-fighting.

Of course, we already have Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, The Walking Dead and – for now – Constantine gracing our schedules. Of those, Arrow, The Flash and The Walking Dead have already been picked up for further seasons, as well. With the exception of Constantine, we wouldn’t be too surprised to hear the rest renewed too.

The fun doesn’t stop there.

14 comics from 2014 that should be movies

14 comics from 2014 that should be movies
2014 has been a landmark year for comic book movies. Not only did we get two of Marvel's best-ever films (Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier), but the major studios announced enough future superhero adaptations to take us all the way up to 2019.

It's been a pretty landmark year for comic books too. It feels as though more genuinely exciting new titles launched in 2014 than in the past ten years combined, with DC, Marvel and especially Image taking big risks and creating some seriously compelling comics in the process.

We've picked out our 14 favourite comics from this year in terms of big-screen potential:

14. Spread

The Comic: On paper, Spread doesn't sound like the most original book on the market. Like The Walking Dead, it's set in a post-apocalyptic world where survivors fight off gruesome monsters and each other. As with The Thing, those monsters are giant shape-shifting

Zombeavers & Other Great Movie Animals

Today sees the release of Zombeavers, in which a group of spring breakers are terrorized by a horde of killer beavers. It’s sounds ridiculous (because it is, of course) but these bloodthirsty little buggers continue a long tradition of awesome animals on the big screen. In case you’ve forgotten, here’s a countdown of some of cinema’s greatest ever beasts.

10. Flying Monkeys – The Wizard Of Oz (1939)

What’s more terrifying than an evil pointy-nosed witch? Try an evil pointy-nosed witch with an army of flying monkeys! In the original Oz books, the winged simians were mischievous but intelligent creatures, but by the time they received their big screen debut they’d mutated into the stuff of nightmares.

As Dorothy and her gang find themselves in a darkened forest, the Wicked Witch of the West sends her sinister army to monkey-nap them, and they are returned to the Witch’s castle pronto.

10 Planned Comic Book Movie Scenes We’ll Never Get To See

Warner Bros.

If there’s one thing you should take away from the film-watching community’s thirst for alternate casting, deleted scenes and rejected concept revelations, it’s that the concept of the multiverse is alive and well around Hollywood. Imagine that world where David Bowie had become the Joker, or the one where Adam West got his frankly ridiculous 1970s Batman script about aliens made… Such are the marvels and grotesque curiosities that are revealed when the layers of pre-production are peeled back.

And the same of course can be said for the entirety of the comic book movie genre: because the market is one that now juggles vast, vulgar sums, and star egos to match them, every single brush-stroke is scrutinised and criticised, and God help the film-makers when the fans discover that they actually rejected something awesome (like Aronofsky making Year One) in favour of something deemed less successful.

Iconic 80s Villains Re-Imagined As Iconic 80s Pop Stars

Iconic 80s Villains Re-Imagined As Iconic 80s Pop Stars
Have you ever wondered what your favorite childhood bad guys would have done if the call to villainy hadn't been their destiny? Artist Rocky Davies has. And the obvious answer? They'd be pop idols, duh.  Think about it. They've already got the charisma, the built-in fan base/minions, the costumes, the presence. All they needed was a sweet LP cover and a dash of neon because what 80s idol worth their salt didn't roll around in Day-Glo paint every morning? #1 - I'd like to imagine Bebop and Rocksteady play backup on keytar and electronic drums. Art by: Rocky Davies #2 - What if The Joker had been Gotham's David Bowie? Art by: Rocky Davies #3 - As a tyrannical despot, you know Doom would make himself a chart topper.

"Pretty Little Liars" recap 3.20: Sonnet to Sappho

Tags: Pretty Little LiarsPretty Little Liars recapsShay MitchellLindsey ShawTroian BellisarioLucy HaleAshley BensonWAPIMDb

Previously on Pretty Little Liars, Spencer took away Mona's girlfriend and so Mona took away Spencer's boyfriend. Mona bested Spencer at her best thing (Academic Decathlon) and so Spencer bested Mona at her best thing (Adrenalized Hyperreality Olympics). Mona tried to kill Spencer, and so Spencer tried to kill Mona. Emily uncovered various clues, all of which pointed to Detective Wilden fathering a child with Ali, and the last of which very nearly ended in Jason getting crushed by a falling elevator. Hanna ordered a name badge that says, "Hello, My Name is Gaydar." And Aria kissed her boyfriend's brother due to poor self-control and Edna St. Vincent Millay.

The Liars figured there was no reason to stick around the hospital after Jason shrugged off his casts and neck brace and IVs and jumped out of the window,

Image Conscious: A conversation with visual effects supervisor Guillaume Rocheron

Trevor Hogg chats with Guillaume Rocheron about fulfilling his ambition of becoming a visual effects supervisor...

“I always liked painting but I was not good at it,” states French Visual Effects Supervisor Guillaume Rocheron who is based at the Vancouver facility for the Motion Picture Company (Mpc). When a childhood friend introduced him to the idea of creating digital images, the young artist flourished. “I was doing simple programming. I was interested by computers and for me it was a good medium because it was that mix of technology and artistic things. I started to make images at home and little short films; that’s how I got into it. I saw Jurassic Park [1993] and Terminator 2 [1991]. You see those films and its like, ‘Wow! How did they make that?’ You realize that they made this in a computer and you think, ‘Maybe I can do that one day.’ One of

Five Questions With “Burn” Directors Tom Putnam And Brenna Sanchez

A news item about a tragedy in Detroit got them started, and by the time they were finished—three years and 1,000 hours of footage later—co-directors Tom Putnam and Brenna Sanchez found that their firefighting documentary had become something bigger than they’d imagined. Burn follows a group of firefighters as they try to contain blazes in a city with an endless roster of buildings left vacant amidst an economic collapse (a topic dealt with in Detropia and several other documentaries). Detroit’s population, as the film notes, is less than half of what it was 60 years ago, and many of those abandoned houses and former businesses have become firetraps. The film is built on vivid scenes that depict the danger facing fire crews from one shift to the next, but Burn also has broader implications, raising a host of issues about the changing texture of 21st century American cities

The 69 Eyes: 'X' – CD Review

The 69 Eyes: 'X' – CD Review
Last month we offered you a taste of the new album from “Helsinki Vampires” The 69 Eyes, in the form of a darkly sensual music video for the single “Red,” which featured a welcome introduction from none other then Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (check it out here). This week the entire record X is now available via Nuclear Blast Records, and I finally got to spend some quality lights-out time with it to drink in the full experience. “The 69 Eyes is like Batman,” says frontman Jyrki69. “We always rise and return, our only mission being to save Gotham City and serve its people. Everybody else is gone, nobody does it better & someone's got to do it.” In a weird way, he's absolutely right: like the Dark Knight himself, the band's own brand of smoldering, romantic gothic rock is cloaked in mystery, sometimes brutal, always classy, and more than a little crazy (in a good way,

[Tiff Review] The Perks of Being a Wallflower

  • The Film Stage
There is nothing more important to a teenager than everything. It’s the sly trick when making a high school movie: the stakes are already built in. That’s why you can (theoretically) sustain a film like Prom based solely on the emotional toll of rejection. It’s as emotionally devastating as any bomb Bane could unleash on Gotham. Then the next week comes and with it a new problem to worry about endlessly. It’s a harrowing roller coaster regardless of what’s actually going on in your life.

That’s part of what makes The Perks of Being A Wallflower such a monumental work. Not only are the usual tropes of surviving adolescence involved, but they are merely a base for a number of adult issues that are thrust upon our teenage heroes. This is no doubt aided by the auteurship of Stephen Chbosky, a man who earns
