While rumoured for several months, it has been officially confirmed via CBR that Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill will both return to their iconic roles as Batman and The Joker in DC’s latest animated feature, an adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s The Killing Joke. Hamill also unveiled the first look at the film’s animation style on Twitter, which seems to eschew an adaptation of Brian Bolland’s art in favour of the more generic style that has become popular with DC’s animated division. Tara Strong reprises her role as Barbara Gordon from Batman: The Animated Series, and Ray Wise will voice Commissioner James Gordon.

Just over a week will see gods and men brawl for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, firmly cementing Henry Cavill’s broody Man of Steel and Ben Affleck’s somehow-less-broody Dark Knight as our live-action DC mainstage. The cast of The Flash has their own take on who might win the day, even as the movies summarily refuse to acknowledge their existence.

Of all the movies-that-could-have-been, Darren Aronofsky’s Wolverine and Batman movies are two of the more curious unmade projects. Before Christopher Nolan rebooted the Batman franchise and inspired a slew of gritty comic book adaptations, Aronofsky was briefly attached to helm a Dark Knight movie based on Frank Miller’s Year One. Much has been written about the project, and in a rare new interview, Miller himself explains what it might have been and why it was never made.

FOX’s Gotham may have beefed up its Bat-cred to introduce Hugo Strange and Mr. Freeze, but may always have something of grey (er, green) area when it comes to proto-Jokers. We’ve seen one laughed off already, but new photos from an upcoming hour feature Orange is the New Black star Lori Petty looking an awful lot like the Clown Prince of Crime. Harley too!

Many years ago, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was deep into development on a Justice League movie. How deep? He had his entire cast — including Armie Hammer as Batman, Common as Green Lantern and Adam Brody as Flash — and was well into rehearsals in Australia. That project wound up getting canceled because of the writer’s strike and Justice League would lay dormant…until this April when Zack Snyder begins filming on his two-part Justice League movie. That film — starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Ezra Miller as The Flash — now has at least one major connection to the defunct Justice League film of 2008: Miller himself, who will return to produce the new version.

One of the stipulations when Ben Affleck signed on to star in Batman vs. Superman was that his Argo writer, Chris Terrio, would come aboard to help fix the script. Though Terrio was indeed brought in to rewrite the script (originally written by David Goyer), it seems Affleck still was not happy with it. According to a recent report, Affleck spent each day rewriting that day’s scenes until they were up to snuff. Oh, and he did it dressed as Batman.
