Look in the credits on any Batman feature of the past 26 years, and you'll see one name on all of them: Michael Uslan. In addition to serving as a producer/executive producer on seven Batman films, Uslan was executive producer on the Swamp Thing movies, Catwoman, The Spirit and, believe it or not, Where in the World is Carmen San Diego? Uslan is also a comics writer, with Archie and DC credits including The Shadow under his belt, and a professor who teaches a class called The Comic Book in America.
On Thursday Uslan opened up for a Reddit AMA Thursday, answering a handful of questions using his wealth of knowledge about superheroes, Hollywood and comics history.
Of the many Batman characters paraded through Gotham’s first FOX season, few proved so perfunctory as a Harvey Dent three times Bruce’s age and with anger issues already in place. Well, good news, Gotham fan! Nicholas D’Agosto will flip coins and double-pun through Season 2 as a series regular.
With Batman: Arkham Knight due to arrive in just a few weeks, it's time for the endless promotional assault on your senses to kick into high gear. Some skins and pre-order exclusives were touted earlier this week, but now Rocksteady Studios has returned with a new bit of gameplay showing off both hand-to-hand and vehicular combat.
As the third game in the Arkham trilogy proper (Rocksteady doesn't count Arkham Origins, and neither should you), Arkham Knight appears to be the most ambitious Batman video game yet. Besides the obvious graphical improvements offered by the current crop of consoles, Rocksteady's included a wealth of new features for its open world Gotham, including the ability to get behind the wheel of the Batmobile and shoot the crap out of some tanks. But don't worry Bat-fans, these are just drones. Batman isn't killing anyone; he's just maiming them really, really, really, really badly.
Warner Bros. Interactive has revealed two new pre-order bonuses for Batman: Arkham Knight, and longtime Caped Crusader fans might enjoy them. Pre-ordering Batman: Arkham Knight will now score you updated versions of the Batman Beyond and The Dark Knight Returns skins, which you may have seen in Arkham City.
With just a hair over a six weeks to go until San Diego Comic-Con, companies have been slowly dropping hints about what to expect in the way of exclusive merchandise at this year's show. As expected, DC Collectibles will have some choice items up for grabs at the event.
Previous SDCCs have seen a fairly diverse line-up from DC Collectibles, but in 2014 the company really only had a limited Batman: Arkham City Harley Quinn statue. Fortunately, the merchandise side of the DC Comics brand is offering two unique collectibles this year that'll be a tiny bit more affordable... provided you can get one at the show itself.
Toronto gets turned into a film set on a semi-regular basis. It's no Los Angeles, but it sometimes plays her --- or any other North American city --- on the big screen. Not long after I first moved to the city, there was fake snow on the ground for the Scott Pilgrim movie (a rare case of Toronto playing Toronto). The street where I live is sometimes lined with yellow New York cabs, most recently for Kick-Ass 2, and the next spooky Guillermo Del Toro may be lurking around any corner at any time.
Right now, the city is overrun by the Suicide Squad movie, as demonstrated by our video and photos of Ben Affleck's heavy duty industrial Batmobile chasing down the brightly-colored Jokermobile during last night's shoot.
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, the Riddler's back in action with a waxy new plan... to steal the lost treasure of the Inca!
It’s no secret that Hollywood has a hard time embracing older women (related: this brilliant Amy Schumer sketch), but there’s one who will never have to struggle to get work: Wonder Woman. The immortal superhero has been alive for centuries (depending on which origin and continuity you prefer), and in case you were worried that the new Warner Bros. iteration of the character would try to make her more human, you needn’t worry anymore.
The latest trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight will remind you of what the Caped Crusader meant to inspire in us all.
Warner Bros. Interactive has launched its 'Be the Batman' trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight. This video features a simple, but awesome premise. It starts off by showing a few people in some dangerous situations. A man walking through an alley gets cornered by a group of would-be muggers. A heavily injured basketball player grimaces while being bandaged. Hooligans terrorize an old man in a subway car while multiple onlookers try to ignore the injustice in front of them. The last scary situation features firefighters struggling to contain an explosive inferno while a woman is trapped by a second story window, surrounded by flames...
Didn't get your hands on one of Mezco's One:12 Collective Dark Knight Returns Batman figures the first time around? Do you really love that moment from the book where Batman takes on the Mutant Leader in the mud pit and loses horribly? Good, because Mezco's upcoming summer convention exclusive is a pretty bogue box set commemorating the fracas.
Mezco kicked off its One:12 Collective series this year with a standard Dark Knight Returns Batman, available in a variety of outfits from the seminal comic series. All of them quickly sold out. At Toy Fair, the company teased the Mutant Leader as one of its next figures (as well as a sick Judge Dredd we're eagerly awaiting) in the One:12 Collective, but were vague about its potential release date. Now we know why.
