Now that the season premiere of Gotham is so close we can taste it, Fox is rolling out generous teasers by the day. Just yesterday, we were treated to an oversized trailer for the show’s fourth year and, now, a couple sneak peeks have found their way online to whet our appetites.
In the first clip, the camera is focused squarely on a “License of Misconduct” card, something we’ll discuss further in a moment. But mainly, this particular video centers on Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth, the former of whom is obviously taking his first major strides toward becoming Batman.
From what we can gather, this scene takes place not long after Bruce puts on a mask for the first time, seemingly preparing for the inevitable return of Ra’s al Ghul. But to Alfred’s chagrin, the burgeoning vigilante has designs on multitasking, also willing to focus »

Before delving into the merits of “The Lego Ninjago Movie,” it’s worth pausing to reflect on just how remarkable it is that the third film in a cinematic franchise based on plastic children’s construction toys comes with high expectations attached. Before Lego launched its own film empire, other toy companies like Hasbro had established assembly lines of often profitable, invariably awful branded theatrical entertainments, and there was no reason to expect anything different from Lego. Yet 2014’s “The Lego Movie” and last spring’s “The Lego Batman Movie” surprised just about everyone by being smart, sophisticated, cognizant of their own synergistic origins, and most importantly, actual movies. That the Lego Cinematic Universe (Lcu) became a recognizable acronym isn’t surprising; that it came to signify quality is almost miraculous.
Superficially, “Ninjago” is very much in line with its predecessors. Based on Lego’s ninja-themed original property – already a Cartoon Network TV show – the film is »

Having earned over $800 million, Wonder Woman has proven itself on many levels. In a year that started, more or less, with Hidden Figures, and with a summer that had three hits featuring women (the others being Atomic Blonde and Girls Trip) the female half of the movie going audience is finally receiving their due. Director Patty Jenkins has certainly shattered some records and glass ceilings along the way while Gal Gadot has now proven she can open a movie.
With Wonder Woman out today on Blu-ray from Warner Home Video, we have a chance to look back and enjoy it all over again. While it fits neatly in the larger DC Cinematic Universe thanks to the framing sequence, the movie largely works on its own with a vastly superior tone and vision than its predecessors.

Holy beloved legend, Batman!
The late Adam West would have turned 89 on Tuesday, and to celebrate his life and legendary television career, his hometown of Walla Walla, Washington, will host a day of events.
West, best known for playing the Caped Crusader in the 1960s ABC series Batman, died June 9.
Now, his family and hometown will throw a daylong party in honor of the beloved actor.
"We've been blown away by the amount of love and support the town of Walla Walla has shown," Nina Tooley, West's daughter told The Hollywood Reporter. "Many of the businesses [including Starbucks and Macy's] have »

Take another look @ DC Comics' 'Starfire' from"Injustice 2" as the super-powered female alien, motivated to action by the death of 'Dick Grayson', aka 'Nightwing', shows off her deadly energy beams, celestial projectiles and a whole lot more:
'Starfire', aka 'Koriand'r, debuted in "DC Comics Presents" #26 (October 1980), created by writer Marv Wolfman and illustrator George Pérez, as an alien 'Tamaranean', with a physiology designed to absorb ultraviolet radiation, that allows her to fly at supersonic speeds.
This energy also provides her with superhuman strength and durability. She also has the ability to release her absorbed energy into powerful blasts.
Starfire is also proficient in hand-to-hand combat, trained by the 'Warlords of Okaara'. She also doesn't need to eat, drink, sleep and doesn't require an atmosphere to breathe.
All Tamaraneans assimilate languages through physical contact.
When Starfire attempts to do so with a male...
...she typically does so by »

Boba Fett is about to make his return to a galaxy far, far away in very handsome fashion. Mad Men and Baby Driver star Jon Hamm has been tapped to voice the legendary bounty hunter in a brand new Star Wars story. Hamm is lending his talents for the audiobook version of Star Wars: A Certain Point of View, which includes 40 short stories from the Star Wars universe.
The news was revealed by StarWars.com ahead of the release of Star Wars: A Certain Point of View, which is set to arrive on October 3. An all-star cast was assembled for the audiobook, but easily the most notable is the reveal that Jon Hamm is voicing Boba Fett in a short titled Added Muscle, which was written from Fett's perspective by Paul Dini of Batman: The Animated Series fame. One of the book's producers, Alan Blank, had this to »
Loosely based on Frank Miller’s seminal comic book, the film would have told a radically different origin story for the Dark Knight than what we’re used to. Notable elements include depicting Bruce Wayne as a street punk with hockey pads and a baton and Alfred the butler being recast as a young African-American car mechanic.
While promoting his latest effort, Jennifer Lawrence vehicle mother!, Aronofsky revealed some new interesting details on what he would have done with the Caped Crusader. It turns out he even had a specific actor in mind to play the part.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Phoenix has been linked with a superhero role. We’ve previously seen »

Before Christopher Nolan gave Batman a gritty makeover and Zack Snyder doubled down on the grimdark take, there was Darren Aronofsky and his shelved Batman: Year One project. The project, which drew inspiration from Frank Miller‘s similarly-titled comic book, envisioned a Travis Bickle-like Bruce Wayne who grew up an orphan in the crime-ridden streets of Gotham, donning a ski mask, cape, and […]

After the failure of Batman and Robin, Warner Bros. put The Caped Crusader to bed indefinitely. We all know that. What is less known, is that around 2002 the studio began feeling things out again. Spider-Man was making waves. Bryan Singer’s X-Men was well received, with a sequel on its way. Warner Bros. probably felt like they were sitting on a gold-mine with Batman (they were), and began having dialogue with directors around Hollywood concerning ways to bring Batman back from the dead.
One of those directors was Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream, Mother). Well known to Batman fans, but maybe less known to the average moviegoer, is that Aronofsky had a very detailed pitch for a film loosely adapted from Batman: Year One. The pitch was wild. Gritty. A Bruce Wayne that we’ve never seen on screen before, and definitely not a risk Warner Bros. »

Before Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was even a glint in Zack Snyder’s eye, Darren Aronofsky was plotting to make a big screen version of Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One. Over the years, though, we’ve seen many proposed superhero movies fail to make it past the development stages, and sadly, this is one of those.
Although the script was co-written by Miller, the movie would have played fast and loose with the character’s history. It would have seen Bruce made homeless after his parents are killed and taken in by African-American mechanic Little Al (a version of Alfred). Rather than the usual billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne, we would have got a gritty, street-level Batman, who drove around in a souped-up Lincoln Convertible and whose gadgets consisted of throwing acid in people’s faces.
Speaking about what could’ve been a while back, Miller had this »

Gotham’s Dark Knight will once again be joining forces with New York’s Heroes in a Half-Shell this December as DC Entertainment and Idw Publishing launch Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II, a six-issue follow up to the smash-hit crossover series of 2015 with James Tynion IV writing and Freddie Williams II on art.
“The original crossover between Batman and the Turtles was met with such positive enthusiasm from the fans, that it was only a matter of time before their paths crossed again,” said Idw President and COO, Greg Goldstein. “Fans have themselves to thank for making this a reality, yet again, and we’re confident that we can deliver the goods to meet their expectations with our talented creative team returning for round two.”
When Donatello goes looking for a new mentor to help him improve his fighting skills, he opens a doorway to another reality, hoping to summon the Turtles’ one-time ally, »

One of the many great things about comic books is that the medium allows for crossovers to occur, a lot of which we’ll probably never see in live action cinema or even animation due to an unbelievable amount of red tape. Case in point: back in 2015, we finally saw Batman meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a team-up that had previously only went down whenever we were kids playing with the various action figures we owned.
Thankfully, we’re getting an official sequel now thanks to a real life team-up involving DC Entertainment, Idw Publishing and Nickelodeon. Granted, there was also the recent miniseries dubbed Batman/Tmnt Adventures, but that involved the animated versions of the characters, not the comic book iterations, and was a different beast entirely. But, rest assured, Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II is a sequel in every sense of the word.

If there’s one advantage that Gotham has over its DC TV brethren at The CW, it’s that it’ll commence its next season several weeks before the others do. Having said that, it’s only expected that synopses surface, each providing even more clues as to what we can expect from the next leg of Bruce Wayne’s journey toward becoming Batman.
First, on Thursday, September 21, we have the season 4 premiere that’s peculiarly titled “Pax Penguina.” From that, we can obviously infer that the deadly rivalry involving the Penguin and the Riddler that began in season 3 will spill over here, but it appears that the Scarecrow and Ra’s al Ghul may steal the show. And seeing as how Alexander Siddig, who is reprising his role as the Demon’s Head, is now a series regular, that’s a very real possibility.

If you’re reading this, there’s a very strong chance that you have some level of familiarity with Frank Miller’s immortal classic, The Dark Knight Returns (Dkr). Since its original publication in the mid-1980’s, it’s managed to change the way mainstream outlets view the comic book industry, been adapted to an animated feature, and has influenced countless other Batman comics – along with several of the live action films.
So, when the acclaimed author rolled out the sequel that was The Dark Knight Strikes Again! (DK2) back in 2001, expectations were understandably high. Unfortunately, it didn’t reach the bar that its predecessor did, but we’re happy to say that the threequel – Dark Knight III: The Master Race – has lived up to the legacy of the original, with the collected edition undergoing a slight re-titling of Batman: The Dark Knight: Master Race.
This time around, Miller »
