It’s not been a good time for DC’s biggest superheroes making sound decisions lately. Last week, Superman’s idea to restore his superpowers was very dumb, and it lead to him getting a silly new superpower. This week, Bruce Wayne made a decision that has huge ramifications for the future of Batman... which was both…
We know that Alfred calling his employer, surrogate son, and the recipient of his wisdom, "Master Bruce," is incredibly old-fashioned. But what did the term "Master" mean, before it became obsolete?
Here's your first official look at 14-year-old actress Carmen Bicondova as Selina Kyle. It's not doing it for me, but that's fine — we've got set pics of Selina looking for more Catwoman-y, plus the first look at David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, and Gordon and Bullock in action!
This is excellent. Last night a friend sent us this post by redditor TheIndieArmy, who observes that "the popularity graph for the name Bruce looks awfully familiar."
We showed you the ultimate amalgam of Bruce Wayne (Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale, all smooshed together into one devilishly handsome, if somewhat Bale-biased, visage). Here now for your consideration is a similar composite of every 007 actor, morphed into one super-Bond.
Bruce Wayne's batsuit is hardly a batsuit without a cape, but physicists at the University of Leicester have determined that the Dark Knight's memory cloth cape — which snaps into a rigid form when exposed to an electric current — is pretty much a one-time-use accessory. Not because it would break or anything, but…
After tireless investigation, this reporter has at last found out Batman's secret identity. The caped crusader who keeps Gothamites safe doesn't stalk the alleys of the city full time. By day he's well-known billionaire playboy Bruno Díaz!
Poor Martha Wayne. While there are plenty of comics about what Bruce Wayne's dad got up to before he was killed, from being a part of a secret society to performing surgery on a mob boss at gunpoint, there's relatively few comics written about Batman's mom.
Secret identities. Do we really need them? More importantly, do superheroes? And how do they really work? (Do they?)
The soliciations for DC Comics' June releases are out, including the brand new Batman line-up post-Battle For The Cowl. But who is the new Batman? And what's going on with Robin? Speculation ahead.
That would be Dr. Manhattan. Yes, he spends a lot of the film naked; being transformed from an everyday nuclear scientist into what is essentially a glowing blue god with powers and perspective beyond those of normal human beings tends to make you less bothered about things like "clothing," apparently.
After all the hype and buzz, The Dark Knight turns out to be a taut, morally ambiguous crime drama that shies away for superhero schtick in favor of something more understated and suspenseful. As long as you leave the movie somewhere around the halfway point. If you stay for the whole thing, then be prepared to put up…
No, probably not. Not even Rogen's self-deprecating humor can generate enough buzz to make me want to sit through this bargain-basement superhero movie. Rogen says Hornet, which he's co-writing and starring in, will be about a superhero whose sidekick (Kato) is more famous than he is. But to us, it's just more proof…
Must-read graphic novels are futuristic classics that shouldn't be missed. Of course, not every must-see is perfect. That's why we've rated them 1-5 on the patented "crunchy goodness" scale.
Title: Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
Vitals: In a dystopian future, an aging Bruce Wayne decides to pull on the…
