Anne Hathaway memorably played Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, but she very nearly played another catty superhero. The Oscar-winning actress was set to play Black Cat in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4, which would have also featured John Malkovich as Vulture. That film was canceled shortly before filming and Sony eventually decided to reboot the whole franchise. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which goes completely batty with The Dark Knight Rises!
Emboldened by their superhero success, The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow order made a surprising addition to both Arrow and The Flash, and the mad scientists of the network may push their experiment even further.

The 1966 Batman television show was one of the most successful and influential adaptations of comic books to mass media of all time. Over the course of three seasons and 120 episodes, the series became a cultural force with its unique combination of tongue-in-cheek humor, thrilling superhero adventure and celebrity guest stars, and shaped the way the public would view the Caped Crusader for the next five decades. Now, in the midst of a well-deserved renaissance of the show, ComicsAlliance is proud to present The Batman ’66 Episode Guide, an in-depth examination of every single adventure, arch-criminal and deathtrap cliffhanger of the series.
This week, we meet the greatest of the show's original arch-villains... the felonious pharaoh, King Tut!
Arrow crafted enough upheaval by its Season 3 finale “My Name is Oliver Queen” to leave Season 4 something of a blank slate, but it seems the League of Assassins will remain in play.

The sixth episode of Arkham Insider features Social Marketing Manager Gaz Deaves interviewing members of Rocksteady Studios to learn about the gameplay features of Batman: Arkham Knight before the game's big launch next week. Gaz interviews Bill Green, who designed Two Face's bank robbery stages throughout the game. In the midst of all the chaos being caused by the rest of the Rogues Gallery, Two Faces' men are robbing Gotham's banks. Due to the loud alarms going off, Batman is able to steathily enter these buildings and begin some Predator gameplay sequences where you've got to takedown gun-toting baddies without being caught.
We haven’t heard much about what Superman mega-villain Lex Luthor will be like in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Rumor has it that Batman will connect with Luthor in his quest to battle Superman, but — aside from the fact that Luthor will be bald — that’s about all we know so far. Jesse Eisenberg has opened up a bit about what we can expect from the character, and promises that his version will not be silly. So that’s good, right?
