‘Gotham’ Goes Mad in New Season 3 Trailer

Gotham Season 3 Trailer Mad City
FOX

Gotham Season 3 will be laying the Alice in Wonderland puns pretty thick by the arrival of the Mad Hatter, so we’d best get used to it now. Case in point, Season 3 becomes a “Mad City” in a new trailer for the September premiere, and a poster that goes through the looking glass. Crap, now we’re doing it.

DC Multiverse’s Suicide Squad Goals Should Aim a Little Higher [Review]

Mattel DC Multiverse Suicide Squad 6" Figures

Mattel's DC Multiverse line was once merely home to 4" figures from the Batman: Arkham video games, with a few select film characters thrown in for good measure. After the disappearance of the DC Universe Classics, and its replacement DC Club Infinite Earths, it was nearly impossible to find 6" DC Comics figures outside of your local comic shop. With the arrival of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the success of the CW television universe, the DC Multiverse line soon had a foundation for a new 6" figure line.

There have been a few waves of 6" Multiverse figures in 2016, with Mattel mixing things up with comic and Hollywood versions of familiar characters to keep things fresh. Of the latest lines to arrive this summer, Suicide Squad is entirely based on the film incarnations. It's also one of the largest, most diverse waves to arrive since the new Multiverse launched. It's also still very inconsistent.

‘Gotham’ Boss Says Superheroes ‘Don’t Work’ on TV, Is Wrong

Gotham Superheroes Dont Work on TV
FOX

If any series stood accused of missing what makes live-action superheroes enjoyable, it’d be FOX’s Gotham. Well, wouldn’t you know it - the showrunner who thinks “prenatal origin stories” and sexualizing 14-year old characters make great fodder for Batman’s beginnings says “I don’t think superheroes work very well on TV.”

Ask Chris #304: Make Gotham City Great Again

Ask Chris #304, background art from Batman '66

Q: Has Batman ever been overtly political? Was there a time Batman ran for office? If so, would you vote Batman? - @ShaneMBailey

A: To answer your last question first, yes: I consider myself a staunch Batocrat on virtually all of the most important issues, like crime, child labor laws, funding for the development of personal rocket cars, and batarang control. But even though I would happily cast my vote for the Caped Crusader if I had the chance, the occasions where Batman chooses to take a political office are pretty few and far between, especially if you don't count the time he was secretly President of the United States for a weekend.

Of course, there was that time Batman ran for Mayor to keep the Penguin from gaining control of Gotham City.

Here’s Why ‘Gotham’ Threw That Joking Cameo Into Season 2’s Finale

Gotham Season 3 Jerome Joker Cameo
FOX

Mileage may vary on whether Gotham does an effective job of setting up Batman’s beginnings, though most grew to embrace the bizarre proto-Joker of Cameron Monaghan’s Jerome. It may take until Season 4 before we finally see the character again, but producers at least explain how that Season 2 finale cameo came about.

Adam West, Burt Ward, And Julie Newmar Return For Animated ‘Batman’ Movie; There May Be Hope For This Fallen World

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader

If there's one thing that has made the nightmare of existence worth it over the past few years, it's been the revival of and new appreciation for the classic Batman television show. Between the long-awaited release of the series on DVD and the new adventures that have been running in the Batman '66 comic book, it's been a good time to be a fan of what is unquestionably the greatest mass-media incarnation of the Dynamic Duo. But in a few months, we're getting something all new and amazing.

On October 11, Warner Bros. will release Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader, a new animated movie that's not just based on Batman '66, but also features original series actors Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar, reprising their roles as Batman, Robin, and Catwoman.

FOX’s Gotham has been … less than clear with its intent regarding Season 3's transformation from Clare Foley’s young Ivy Pepper to Maggie Geha’s full Poison Ivy, but a new photo at least sells the transition. Gone are the low-cut dresses, as a new Season 3 shot of Ivy Pepper brings back the familiar outfit.
