The headline of this article is kind of a minor spoiler already, but DC itself let it out in its June solicitations; Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's Batman #41 will feature a brand-new Batman who kind of looks like a robot with bunny ears carrying a giant handgun.
Who is this mysterious figure? Apparently, DC's Free Comic Book Day offering, Divergence #1, has the info, and word has spread across the comics Internet. Click through if you want to know, and plug your ears now if you would like to be surprised when the issue comes out May 2.
Lego has announced a new franchise-crossing video game that, like Skylanders, Nintendo's amiibo figures and Disney Infinity, uses real toys placed on a special pad to import the characters into the game. Lego Dimensions, from Warner Bros and TT Games, will launch with a $99.99 starter pack that includes Wyldstyle from The Lego Movie, Lord of the Rings' Gandalf, and Batman and a Batmobile --- and because it's a Lego game, players will get to construct the game's portal gateway out of Lego bricks.
Many of comics’ most popular heroes have been around for decades, and in the case of the big names from the publisher now known as DC Comics, some have been around for a sizable chunk of a century. As these characters passed through the different historical eras known in comics as the Golden Age (the late 1930s through the early 1950s), the Silver Age (the mid 1950s through the late 1960s), the Bronze Age (the early 1970s through the mid 1980s) and on into modern times, they have experienced considerable changes in tone and portrayal that reflect the zeitgeist of the time.
With this new feature we’ll help you navigate the very best stories of DC Comics’ most beloved characters decade by decade. This week, we’re taking a look at Batman.
Before Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman movie, Batman was largely known for the campy Adam West/Burt Ward TV series. In fact, they wanted to make a Batman movie based on that show called Batman in Outer Space. Luckily, two movie producers bought the rights and wanted to make a darker version of Batman's story. In the mid-80s, after the success of Ghostbusters, director Ivan Reitman was attached to direct and he wanted to cast Bill Murray as Batman and Eddie Murphy as Robin. These are just some of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which heads to Gotham with the original Batman!
The return of the Joker and his latest rein of crazy over Gotham comes to an end in April with the concluding chapter of Endgame in Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's Batman #40. The effects of the Joker's assault on sanity won't only be felt in the pages of that book, but in a series of one-shots spinning out of Batgirl, Arkham Manor, Detective Comics, and Gotham Academy.
In the case of Gotham's finest/spookiest/strangest private school, the endgame plays out on the dark and sinister night of a city-wide blackout, with Joker-infected crazies at large on the streets. Holed up at the academy, students Olive Silverlock, Maps Mizoguchi and their... "friends"... tell each other scary Joker stories --- and those stories come from a team of exceptional guest artists. Series writers Brenden Fletcher and Becky Cloonan are joined by Six Gun Gorilla artist Jeff Stokely, Adventure Time character designer Joy Ang, illustrator Clio Chiang, and Anya's Ghost author Vera Brosgol. Check out our exclusive preview... if you dare.
So sayeth Burt Ward, Robin the Boy Wonder on the 1960s Batman television show and film, at a recent convention appearance (via Ain’t It Cool), revealing that to celebrate the iconic camp classic series’ 50th anniversary, he and his co-star, Adam West, will provide their voices for a new animated movie done in the style of their old show. And to Burt Ward I sayeth: I can look forward to it, and I do look forward to it. Because that sounds fantastic.
We’ve been hearing a lot of rumors about David Ayer’s Suicide Squad over the last week or so, specifically pertaining to the Joker, which will reportedly be based on Frank Miller’s version of the iconic villain in The Dark Knight Returns. The last report only hinted at how Ben Affleck’s Batman might appear in the film, and today’s rumor expands on that a bit, shedding more light on the caped crusader’s role and how he’s viewed in this particular section of the DCU.
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 show's most terrifying arch-villain... False Face!
