Remember when people went to see a “superhero movie” featuring two (actually three) of the most iconic superheroes together for the first time? For a lot of them, it wasn’t what they expected. It didn’t feel like a “superhero movie.”
Step back into the Gotham of Tim Burton’s seminal classic Batman movies on August 10. “Batman ’89” by screenwriter Sam Hamm (“Batman,” “Batman Returns”) and artist Joe Quinones (“Dial H for Hero”) will pull on a number of threads left dangling by the prolific director in an incredible new comic book miniseries!
Robin,the Boy Wonder, is set to make his debut in the first issue of the comic book series “Batman ‘89.” Initially, Dick Grayson was initially going to be portrayed by actor Marlon Wayans (“The Wayans, Scary Movie,” and “G.I. Joe Rise of Cobra”) in director Tim Burton’s Batman films.
Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s 1996 critically acclaimed graphic novel, “Batman: The Long Halloween,” was given the green light to be turned into an animated movie. The movie finally arrived after months of anticipation, and it did not disappoint.
Remember a few years ago when ‘Batman’ sat in the Mobius chair during the events of the ‘Darkseid war’ comic event? It was an interesting choice nonetheless. The sequence of the narrative took our stoic, yet mortal hero, Batman and gave him a key to the conundrum he could never solve.
HBO Max announced today that it’s given an original series commitment to a new drama from The Batman director Matt Reeves, Boardwalk Empire creator Terrence Winter, The Batman producer Dylan Clark and Warner Bros. Television. The show will focus on the Gotham City Police Department and perhaps best of all, will be set within the world of Reeves’ upcoming film.
With the second issue of “Batman: Damned” looming on the horizon, I feel the need to go back and discuss the first issue featuring the first appearance of the “Bat Wang,” which DC Comics later covered up. It really opened up an old wound with me: censorship.
