Untitled-1

After decades of waiting, fans of the beloved Batman television show of the 1960s -- or Batman '66 as it is known -- will finally be able to own all 120 episodes on home video, and in high definition. After protracted litigation with series owner Fox, DC Comics' parent company Warner Bros. has set November 11 as the on-sale date for the completely remastered Batman '66, which will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, digital, and, of course, a super expensive collector's edition that comes with all sorts of groovy stuff, including a selection of photos from star Adam West's personal archives (when you're as mature and sophisticated as West, you get to have "personal archives").

moviestoy-story-that-time-forgot-poster-1

Well, that was unexpected. I mean, we knew Pixar and ABC were working on a followup to last year's exceptionally great Toy Story Of Terror! Halloween special, this one called Toy Story That Time Forgot, but we really didn't anticipate Mike Mignola to be the one selected to make it official in an inescapably cool Comic-Con exclusive poster.

Colton Haynes Dons Arsenal’s Red Faux-Leathers For ‘Arrow’ Season 3

arsenal-arrow-hed

When Colton Haynes joined CW's Arrow in season two as Roy Harper, it was only a matter of time before he got gussied up in his best red Arrow cosplay as Arsenal -- given that, you know, that's who Roy Harper is in the comics. I mean, he could have been Speedy or, oh, Red Arrow, I guess, but since Speedy is a daft name and they don't even want to call the main guy in the show Green Arrow, they kind of have to go with Arsenal, though that's a rotten codename too. But I digress.

Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first official look at Colton Haynes in his dark red Robin Hood suit. Doesn't he look brooding and moody and serious? And isn't that an awful lot of lacing?

Universal’s Cable Arm Picks Up Remender & Dwyer’s ‘Night Mary’, Barbiere & Mooneyham’s ‘Five Ghosts’ And Original Series By Warren Ellis

Untitled-2

Universal Cable Productions, the cable and digital arm of NBCUniversal, announced three new projects rooted in the comic book realm, including what will be Planetary and Transmetropolitan writer Warren Ellis' first original series developed especially for television. Additionally, UCP optioned Night Mary, a 2005 IDW drama by Rick Remender and Kieron Dwyer about a young woman trained to enter the dreams of serial killers; and Five Ghosts, the recent critical hit from Image Comics/Black Mask Studios and creators Frank Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham, who tell the story of Fabian Gray, a 1930s adventurer possessed by the spirits of five literary ghosts — Merlin, Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes, Miyamoto Musashi, and Dracula. Five Ghosts began as a miniseries but its success resulted in an upgrade to ongoing, and now, it seems, an "upgrade" (because comics are the best, obviously) to television.

The Arkham Sessions: Paranoia, Dehumanization And The Psychology of Hospitalization In “Batman: Dreams In Darkness”

Untitled-16211

If Batman ended up in an Arkham Asylum cell, would he be deemed "normal," or would the Gotham facility known for housing the "criminally insane" keep him under lock and key?

In an episode of Batman: The Animated Series called "Dreams in Darkness," the Dark Knight's worst nightmare may have come true when he finds himself being evaluated by psychiatrist Dr. Bartholomew at Arkham Asylum. The doc asserts that Batman is very "ill" and that the one place where "costumed persons with delusional personalities come to find compassionate help" seems like the best place for him. Fighting the onset of paranoid delusions and vivid hallucinations, Batman struggles to reveal the real cause of his insanity: The Scarecrow.

In this episode of The Arkham Sessions, we discuss the experience of being hospitalized for psychiatric reasons, the dangers of labeling people with disorders, and the feelings of dehumanization sometimes perceived by patients in the mental health care system.

ArrowNotBatman

If you were hoping to see Arrow's Stephen Amell make an appearance as the emerald archer in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice or in the upcoming Justice League movie, DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns has some bad news for you.

"We will not be integrating the film and television universes," he said at the Television Critics Association press tour for The Flash. Seems pretty cut and dried.

The X-Men Episode Guide 4x13: 'Love In Vain'

The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations.

That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animated series.

This week, Rogue attempts to lose her v-card and in what is definitely the weirdest episode of the series so far.
