Hello again! Sorry for last week’s absence, but you sure gave me a bunch of excellent letters, so it technically worked out for all of us. This week: Is Rey in danger from Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow? When is a time travel movie not a time travel movie? And most importantly, is Batfleck a Batcoholic?
The oh-so-bad-but-so-entertaining Gotham has just released a 3.5-minute trailer for next week’s episode, titled “Azrael.” If your first thought is, “Hey, isn’t that a full minute longer than trailers for actual movies?” please let me assure that it only gets crazier once you actually start watching it.
In what should honestly not be a surprise to anyone who saw Batman v Superman, it turns out that Batman’s youthful sidekick Robin was also someone who preferred murdering criminals as opposed to sending them through that pesky justice system.
We’re all psyched for The Lego Batman Movie. It’s Lego, it’s Batman, and the trailers have been wonderful. At CinemaCon 2016, Warner Bros. showed a nice long clip from the film, and it centered on the genius way Robin is introduced to this world.

Warner Bros’ CinemaCon presentation started off with a bang tonight: a 15-minute spotlight on upcoming DC Films. It touted the huge success of Batman v Superman (and the head of WB confirmed that Ben Affleck will be directing a solo Batman movie), showed the new trailer for Suicide Squad, and did a sizzle reel that…
Is there really any doubt that Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight is the best Batman movie? Sure, arguments can be made for others but, with his second film, Nolan was able to strike a perfect balance of all things Batman, and thus anchor a legendary trilogy.
In all the hubbub, furor and hullabaloo about Batman v Superman, very few people seem to remember this isn’t the first movie where Batman and Superman share screentime. The actual first movie came out in 1997, was less confrontationally called The Batman/Superman Movie, and oh—it was animated.
Kevin Smith further confirms Ben Affleck’s involvement in writing the Batman solo film. The Russo brothers tease Cap and Bucky’s relationship in Civil War. There’s a first look at the Secret Warriors on Agents of SHIELD. Plus, an update on Bill & Ted 3, and HBO continues to tease Game of Thrones fans. Spoilers Now!
Despite the abundance of Batman v Superman’s negative reviews and the film’s swift, severe drop in box office sales since its debut a week and a half ago (even with an utter lack of competition!), Warner Bros. executives seem adamant in learning absolutely nothing from the movie’s problems.
The gay subtext of the relationship between Batman and Robin has been the butt of jokes for decades. Over at Slate, Glen Weldon adapts an extract from his book, The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture, that examines the history of Batman’s relationship with Dick Grayson and its homoerotic undertones.
In a few months, everything changes for the DC comics universe again... kind of. All the talk of DC Rebirth lately might have you a bit unsure of what’s ahead for Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, and friends in the near future, but don’t worry! We’re here to explain exactly what’s going on.
