ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, DC finds an Aquaman, Marvel finds a Kingpin, and the Guardians of the Galaxy find their way onto a bunch of new posters.
Watching the new Batman: Arkham Knight gameplay trailer, it's easy to imagine this game getting retitled Grand Theft Auto: Gotham City without anyone blinking an eye. Unlike the claustrophobic Batman: Arkham Asylum and the open but constructed Batman: Arkham City, Rocksteady's latest Dark Knight adventure makes Bruce Wayne's entire hometown your personal sandbox, letting you glide overhead, drive through its streets, and knock down whatever gets in your way with a well-timed missile.
Practically everyone loves Batman, thanks in part to Christopher Nolan's recent 'Dark Knight' take, so it's difficult to imagine any major disinterest in Warner Bros.' new Batman Exhibit, which will be on display as part of the studio's VIP tour. For $54 a pop, you can journey through the cinematic history of the Caped Crusader, examining props, ogling costumes and remembering the good times ('The Dark Knight') and the very bad times ('Batman and Robin').
The cat's out of the bag. 'BaneCat,' a spoof video featuring a feline dressed up as the infamous 'Dark Knight Rises' villain as he torments his owner with sadistic taunts, returns for 'BaneCat 2' ... and he's not alone.
The latest Batman: Arkham Knight trailer may lack the sheer dramatic oomph of the debut teaser, but it has something more important than impressive CG cutscenes: actual gameplay footage. Anyone can cut together a bunch of animated dramatic scenes and get people excited, but it takes inventive and fresh gameplay to make people actually fall in love with the finished product. So, how does the fourth game in the acclaimed "Arkham" series look now that we've actually seen it in action?
While TV's Upfront week brings news left and right of cancellation and renewals, one of the more anticipated offerings of the season is none other than FOX's Batman prequel drama, 'Gotham.' Now fully picked up for at least 16 episodes, the drama officially carved out its Monday time slot, upping three pilot stars to series regular and releasing new photos.
DC owned the week in TV, first debuting a brand-new trailer for FOX's 'Gotham' before issuing pickups for 'The Flash,' 'Constantine' and 'iZombie,' so what's one more? We've seen a few photos of the 'Gotham' cast brooding about the city before, but now you can check out the Batman prequel drama's cast of characters assembled together for the first time in a brand-new photo!
We're still not entirely certain what to make of FOX's 'Gotham,' a new type of Batman origin story that highlights a young James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) at the center of the city's growing costumed madness, but showrunner Bruno Heller would have you believe we're about to see the best Batman yet, minus the Batman part. Plus, when might we see the likes of such Dark Knight staples as Harvey Dent and the Joker?
FOX's Batman prequel drama 'Gotham' has been burning a hole in the internet with the reveal of its first official trailer, just hours after the network officially announced the Dark Knight would rise again with a full series order.
