In Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ‘Birdman’ (which will close the New York Film Festival this weekend and, I'll add, is my favorite movie of the year), Michael Keaton plays Riggan Thomson, a veteran actor whose biggest claim to fame is that he used to be in a series of superhero movies. Now, Riggan is attempting to make his comeback by staging a Broadway play based on a Raymond Carver short story. It’s been lost on no one that Michael Keaton also used to be in a series of superhero movies and hasn’t had the most prolific output over the last 15 years – and is, now, making a comeback (of sorts) with ‘Birdman.’ For his part, Michael Keaton is distancing himself from this comparison, telling New York Magazine, “I related less to him than almost every other character I’ve played, in terms of the desperation.”
Have you ever wondered what Gotham City is really like? (For the sake of this exercise, please ignore that the city is a fictitious comic book construction.) Do the people there really care about Batman? What else does the city have to offer both residents and visitors? Is it nice? Where is it located? All these questions and more...well, might not be actually answered by this hilarious 'Late Night With Seth Meyers' sketch, but it comes pretty close.
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ detects its second installment in “The Balloonman,” as Gordon and Bullock pursue a vigilante killing corrupt city officials via weather balloon, while Oswald Cobblepot returns to the city, and word of his supposed demise puts Gordon's career at risk.
Well, we can't say we didn't see this one coming. After FOX's 'Gotham' added a young Harvey Dent to its ludicrous gallery of prequel Batman villains, we now know who will grow into a young Two-Face. 'Masters of Sex' (and 'Heroes!' Don't forget 'Heroes!') star Nicholas D'Agosto has landed the role of 'Gotham' ADA Harvey Dent, a character likely to become a major fixture on the series.
Have you ever heard of ThePianoGuys? It's a group made up of a videographer (Paul Anderson), a studio engineer/songwriter (Al Van Der Beek), a pianist (Jon Schmidt) and a cellist (Steve Sharp Nelson) who create some pretty cool music videos. And their latest is one for movie buffs: 'Batman Evolution,' a journey through some of the most recognized Batman movie and TV show soundtracks as arranged for piano and cello.
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ detects its second installment in “Selina Kyle,” as the future Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) finds herself kidnapped by a child-trafficking ring, while Oswald Cobblepot struggles to regain a foothold outside of Gotham City, and Fish Mooney faces Don Carmine Falcone.
FOX Batman prequel drama 'Gotham' notably divided critics and fans alike with last week's premiere, while early word on tonight's "Selina Kyle" isn't faring much better, but the pre-superhero TV series is forging full-steam ahead with a rogues gallery of Bat-mythology. A new trailer for the upcoming season reveals not only David Zayas as Sal Maroni, but also Victor Zsasz, Arkham Asylum, and potentially even a nod to the villainous Scarecrow!
Whether you found yourself arrested by the premiere of FOX Batman prequel 'Gotham''s Monday premiere or not, there can be no denying the DC drama leaned heavily on teasing future villains. Now, see where said villains will come to call home as 'Gotham' begins setting up a seasonal arc with the first official description of episode 4, "Arkham"!
Just how many times have we watched a young Bruce Wayne witness the murder of his parents? No origin story for the Caped Crusader has been without it, and FOX's Batman prequel series, 'Gotham,' is no different. As the new drama premiered this week, kicking off with the brutal death of Mr. and Mrs. Wayne, a new supercut has hit the web of all the time's we've seen this scene onscreen -- and it's quite a number of times.
