New Batman extremely pointy

New Batman extremely pointy

Batman has always been a pointy character. Even disregarding the work of certain artists—most notably Kelley Jones in the 1990s—who have drawn the Caped Crusader with ears more akin to a rabbit’s than that of a bat, he’s still a guy who spends most of his nights firing grappling guns, flapping his big ol’ pointy cape, and hitting various criminals with his extremely sharp (and personally...

Wait, did the new Batman bolt the gun that killed his parents to his Batsuit's chest?

Wait, did the new Batman bolt the gun that killed his parents to his Batsuit's chest?

The Batman director Matt Reeves showed off the first look at the new Batsuit—and, to a lesser extent, the new Batman—earlier this afternoon , reassuring anyone who was worried about it that Robert Pattinson does, indeed, possess a chin. The suit itself came under significantly more scrutiny, as it typically does, with fans noting its similarities both to the one favored by the Dark Knight in...

Burt Ward says producers wanted him take pills to shrink his penis while filming Batman

Burt Ward says producers wanted him take pills to shrink his penis while filming Batman

Superheroes were a quaint thing in the ‘60s, with Adam West and Burt Ward leading the charge as a much sillier spin on Batman and Robin than we’re accustomed to seeing these days. Still, as boomers will remind you, Batman was a huge fucking deal, despite the show’s relentless campiness and infatuation with labeling every inanimate object imaginable. While the series’ popularity waned over the...

Alfred taunts the Dark Knight in this Batman’s Grave exclusive

Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch changed the superhero game when they debuted The Authority in 1999, bringing a widescreen cinematic aesthetic to the genre that would shape how superheroes were presented in the new millennium. 20 years later, Ellis and Hitch have reunited for The Batman’s Grave, a standalone 12-issue miniseries that spotlights how well these two creators work together. Featuring...

The White Lantern traps the Dark Knight in this Batman Universe exclusive

The main line of Batman titles has been shrouded in darkness recently with the finale of Tom King’s Batman run and tie-ins to the “Year Of The Villain” event, but in the pages of Batman Universe, the Dark Knight has been on a much lighter adventure through space and time. Written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Nick Derington, colorist Dave Stewart, and letterer Troy Peteri, Batman...

A demonic Batman rises in this Creature Of The Night finale exclusive

The journey to Batman: Creature Of The Night #4 has been a long one. The series was originally announced in 2010 as a spiritual sequel to Kurt Busiek and Stuart Immonen’s Superman: Secret Identity, and health problems for Busiek and artist John Paul Leon resulted in a year-and-a-half delay between issues #3 and #4. But the series is well worth the wait, offering a chilling interpretation of...

Colin Farrell in talks to play The Batman's handsome new Penguin, with Andy Serkis as Alfred

Colin Farrell in talks to play The Batman's handsome new Penguin, with Andy Serkis as Alfred

According to Deadline, Colin Farrell is in talks to join the cast of Matt Reeves’ The Batman as stocky, bird-like nightclub owner/organized crime boss Oswald Cobblepot—a.k.a. The Penguin. This would be, let’s say, a divergence from traditional depictions of The Penguin, the most famous of which is Danny DeVito’s fish-eating, sewer-dwelling maniac from Batman Returns, so this might be...

Batwoman loses hope, but finally dons her most famous accessory

Batwoman loses hope, but finally dons her most famous accessory
TV Reviews All of our TV reviews in one convenient place.

In its third episode, Batwoman finally delivers the flame-haired crusader we all came to see. Ruby Rose’s portrayal of the iconic character has left room for Kate to grow into the mantle, which she deserves—she’s a true hero that cares for those around her and family is always a top priority. That’s why it’s been a tad frustrating to...

Michelle Pfeiffer has one specific piece of advice for new Catwoman Zoë Kravitz

Michelle Pfeiffer has one specific piece of advice for new Catwoman Zoë Kravitz

Matt Reeves’s big-screen take on Gotham’s favorite caped crusader is shaping up to be exciting, thanks to some seriously ingenious casting. Robert Pattinson as Batman , Paul Dano as The Riddler , and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon are all fantastic, but Zoë Kravitz nabbing the role of Catwoman is downright thrilling. Even better, the Big Little Lies star is being welcomed with open...

The cat's out of the bag: Zoe Kravitz will play Catwoman in Matt Reeves' The Batman

While the casting for the Robert Pattinson -led Batman film has mostly been relegated to “early talks” or serious negotiations up to this point, today The Hollywood Reporter reports the first confirmed person to star opposite the Twilight alumnus. Big Little Lies’ Zoe Kravitz will be catsuiting up to take on the role of Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman.

As one of Batman’s classic foes and...

Batwoman shows how Kate's family can make—or break—her

Batwoman shows how Kate's family can make—or break—her
TV Reviews All of our TV reviews in one convenient place.

The source of a lot of strife for Kate Kane so far has to do with her twin sister, and the grief that’s followed Kate since Beth’s supposed death 15 years ago. Even this early on, Kate’s ongoing struggle with those she’s closest to could feel redundant. To its credit, Batwoman manages to do the opposite, making the audience feel more...

Arkham Asylum houses some of Batman’s best villains—and ideas

In Grant Morrison’s critically acclaimed Arkham Asylum: A Serious House On Serious Earth, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this month, there’s an internal monologue Bruce Wayne has with himself that encapsulates not only the character’s continual war between his dual sides, but also his relationship to Arkham Asylum, Gotham City’s notorious “home for the criminally insane.” Reflecting on...

A deck of Jokers: Going deeper with The Clown Prince Of Crime

In addition to all of the things the Joker publicity cycle has assured us Todd Phillips’ Batman-adjacent Scorsese riff is not—not an incitement to violence, not an endorsement of its main character’s actions, not subject to questions from red-carpet interviewers —there’s also this: Despite telling the story of an aspiring comedian who becomes an unhinged murder-clown, it’s not a canonical...

Good news, orphans: It's Batman Day!

It’s that time of year again, folks: Batman Day, the annual holiday in which one of the world’s largest corporations invites us to think about one of its most lucrative mascots, even more than we already do. (And let’s be very clear here: We think about Batman a lot.) To celebrate the event, DC Comics has decided to forego its usual means of commemorating the Dark Knight—murdering various...

Robert Pattinson expected way more blowback from his Batman casting

Robert Pattinson opened up for the first time about his casting as the Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman, revealing that, ope, people found out about it way too soon. In fact, the conflicting reports saying that Nicholas Hoult was also up for the role were absolutely correct. “When that thing leaked, I was fucking furious,” Pattinson told Variety in a new cover story....

This debate over which Joker has the best laugh ignores the greatest one of all

This debate over which Joker has the best laugh ignores the greatest one of all

IGN probably wasn’t intending to stir any controversy with a new Twitter poll it dropped yesterday. After Joaquin Phoenix yet again delivered his unhinged laugh in the latest trailer for Todd Phillips’ Joker , they just thought it’d be fun to ask whose Joker laugh is the most iconic. The candidates included Phoenix, Health Ledger, Jack Nicholson, and Mark Hamill.

Let’s be clear: The answer...

The internet is ready for Robert Pattinson to be hot again

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but few would quibble with Robert Pattinson’s heartthrob status, the likes of which he’s more or less cast off over the last several years. The Twilight alum’s dressed himself down in a lot of his more recent roles, looking a touch grungier in indies like Good Time , The Rover , and the upcoming The Lighthouse , which finds him sporting a fierce, unwashed...

Best onscreen Batman to play future Bruce Wayne in The CW’s next superhero crossover

The next CW superhero crossover will sound very familiar: The network announced at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that Kevin Conroy will appear as Bruce Wayne in this winter’s Crisis On Infinite Earths. The actor, who has voiced the caped crusader and his alter ego in Batman: The Animated Series, the Arkham series of video games, and at least one Scooby-Doo episode, will...

What could have been: Ben Affleck's Batman would have explored "insanity," Arkham Asylum

What could have been: Ben Affleck's Batman would have explored "insanity," Arkham Asylum

Ben Affleck’s standalone Batman movie has now been well-and-truly relegated to the “What might have been?” bins of history, derailed by what was, by all accounts, one man’s truly epic indifference to ever having to be the fucking Batman again. Still, there was a moment there where Affleck—who was originally also attached to write and direct the movie, and who is, it’s occasionally worth...

Homer Simpson, Tony Stark, and more fictional characters that definitely would've voted for Trump

Last night, Twitter user @malkatz asked a cursed, potentially deeply depressing question: “Name a fictional character who absolutely voted for Trump. No villains.”

The first responses started out with some unfortunate, “yeah, probably,” type answers in the form of your favorite middle-aged, vigilante, ultra-rich white males, namely Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne. Tony Stark is at the very least...
