WB Set To Unveil Batman Ninja Anime At New York Comic Con

One reason why the character of Batman has endured for 78 years is that he’s so malleable. Sure, there are intrinsic qualities that unite various interpretations such as his superior intellect, martial arts skills and care for his fellow man, but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been portrayals on opposite ends of the spectrum. For example, both Adam West and Ben Affleck have brought something very different to the table, but neither man’s efforts were no less valid than the other – and the same sentiment can be extended to comics and animation.

Having said that, the time has come to embrace what the near future will bring. As it turns out, the Caped Crusader will once again venture to the Japanese anime arena, this time with Batman Ninja. And no, it probably has nothing to do with the Dark Knight and dozens of other gifted athletes from

Annecy: ‘Mutafukaz’ Creator-Director Guillaume ‘Run’ Renard Talks Inspiration, Animation and Adaptation

Annecy, France — At Annecy this year, if one is hoping to see a gritty, young adult, socially relevant and temporally accurate depiction of America, one should walk past Sony, Universal and Disney-Pixar and head to the world premiere of the French feature “Mutafukaz.”

The Franco video game, comic book, and animation producers of the film, Ankama, have brought to the big screen for the first time, the rich world of Dark Meat City, a Los Angeles allegory as first presented in the 2003 Sundance nominated short turned comic book by the same name.

Tasked with bringing the property to theaters, Ankama produced in association with Japan’s 4°C whose artistic input is clear when the film’s animation style is compared to their 2006 hit feature “Tekkoninkreet.”

Ankama have been producing the “Mutafukaz” comics, among more than a dozen others, since 2006 in addition to their slate of video games like “Wakfu,” and “Dofus,

Annecy: See the First English-Subtitled Trailer for Ankama’s ‘Mutafukaz’ (Exclusive)

Annecy, France — Set for its world premiere at 2017’s Annecy Intl. Animation Film Festival, French video game, comic book, and animation company Ankama has released the first trailer for the feature-length follow-up to the 2003 Sundance-nominated short and subsequent comic book series “Mutafukaz.”

Variety has had exclusive access to the first English-language trailer. It starts on the dirty sun-drenched streets of Dark Meat City, or as its inhabitants lovingly refer to it, Dmc, a clear Los Angeles allegory.

We see our protagonist, teen Angelino, delivering pizzas on his moped, distracted by a passing girl, steering head on into the grill of a massive truck. While most of the people in Dmc look like anyone you might find on the streets of L.A., Angelino is about 50% spherical onyx head and 50% lanky body.

The blood and violence that the series is known for are on display from the start as each of

James Bond: Is Christopher Nolan Directing The Next Bond Film?

The James Bond franchise is at an interesting crossroads. A couple weeks ago, it was revealed that the five studios had entered a huge bidding war over distribution rights. Once Spectre was released, the contract with Sony expired, allowing other studios to pitch themselves to Eon, who produces the Bond films.

It sounds like that isn’t the only interesting thing surrounding James Bond. Recently, MI6-hq noticed a peculiar entry on Bond 25’s IMDb page. According to said entry, the production behind the film is Syncopy. If you’re unfamiliar, this is Christopher Nolan’s very own production company. Now, it’s important to know that a lot of info on IMDb for upcoming films is inaccurate. It’s a great site, but it’s best used as a way to look at already-released films, as anyone can change the info.

So we should take this all with a grain of salt,

DC’s First Animated R goes to Batman: The Killing Joke

  • Comicmix
Burbank, CA – Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has accepted the MPAA’s “R” rating for its upcoming animated film, Batman: The Killing Joke, choosing to remain true to the landmark DC Comics graphic novel’s violent, controversial story, and making the film the first non-pg/PG-13 rated movie in the nine-year history of the DC Universe Original Movie franchise.

Batman: The Killing Joke, one of the best-selling graphic novels in history, tells the tale of The Joker’s origin story – from his humble beginnings as a struggling comic, to his fateful encounter with Batman that changes both of their lives forever. Actors Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprise their Batman: The Animated Series roles as Batman and The Joker, respectively.

Since its inception in 2007, the DC Universe Original Movie franchise has brought classic and current DC Comics stories and characters to animated life through a series of primarily PG-13 rated films.

Suicide Squad Set Photos Reveal First Look At Will Smith As A Younger Deadshot

Filming is now well underway on the Toronto set of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, and while recent rumors of Ben Affleck having a cameo appearance as Batman have drawn attention away from the core, villainous cast, Just Jared has pulled the limelight back to the main event by offering up our first look at Will Smith in costume as sharpshooting assassin, Deadshot.

Granted, while social media is already rife with complaints over the page-to-screen interpretation, these stills appear to be from a flashback sequence, given that both of Floyd Lawton’s eyes remain intact. Either that or Ayer’s superhero flick will document the origins of the character, who quickly becomes one of Batman’s primary villains alongside the rest of the film’s ensemble cast.

Donning a red-leather trench coat, hat and beard, Will Smith’s rendition appears to be heavily influenced by the Batman: Gotham Knight animated movie,

Suicide Squad: First Look At Will Smith As 'Deadshot' Definitely Won't Be What You're Expecting

Will Smith has been snapped on the set of Suicide Squad, and the costume he's wearing has already created quite a stir on social media. It's worth noting though that Deadshot appears to have both eyes here, so this could be a flashback to a time before he was a killer. The presence of a young girl seems to indicate that anyway, and it looks like they're shopping together. Either way, the Gotham City police car confirms where these scenes are set, so that too raises some interesting questions about the movie. For example, could it be that this will be an origin story for the character? Regardless, this look for Deadshot isn't too much of a departure from Batman mythos as it's clearly influenced by animated movie, Batman: Gotham Knight. Of course, we don't know if he's wearing this outfit for a single scene, will don a variation of

JamesMan Reviews: Iron Man

It’s funny typing that out for me because for the first two years of its release I was very uncaring about the film. By the end of 2008 I was in Batman fever land, Christmas was the biggest bukkake of Batman related material in my life. I got the DVD of The Dark Knight and Batman Begins, the entire Batman: The Animated Series set (and the films), the entire The Batman (2005-08) series (also got the film), Batman: Gotham Knight, as well as the entire series of Teen Titans. The last thing I cared about was Iron Man, I saw it in theaters that

Justice League: Could A DC Animated Universe Work On The Big Screen?

I’m probably one of the last guys you’ll ever see actually reading any comic under the Marvel umbrella. To be completely honest it’s just personal preference. I was introduced to DC Characters first with Batman: the Animated Series and Lois and Clark on the television; while being introduced to Richard Donner’s take on Superman and Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher’s helm at the world of Gotham City later on. I cherished those films and television shows.

Even when I got into comics my first graphic novel to complete was the much celebrated Watchmen. That’s not to say I hated Marvel. On the contrary, I grew up spending my Saturday mornings watching the animated series of Spider-Man, X- Men, and the Incredible Hulk. Even my mom can tell you I did an impression of the Incredible Hulk as a child. When X-Men first came out

‘Beware the Batman’ Trailer & Images: CGI Animated Dark Knight Action

Batman has a long and illustrious cartoon history with The Super Friends, Batman: The Animated Series, and Batman Beyond serving as a gateway drug to Gotham and the Dark Knight for generations. Since the turn of the century, though, we’ve seen less and less of the Caped Crusader on TV, with Warner Bros. and DC turning more toward direct-to-dvd animated films like Batman: Year One and the fantastic anthology film, Batman: Gotham Knight.

Now, DC Nation and Cartoon Network are picking up the baton last held by the light and fun Batman: The Brave and the Bold and handing it to Beware the Batman, and now we have a new trailer for the long awaited series.

In the above trailer (which is the first look at the show in more than a year), ...
