The comic book movie craze may have exploded in recent years, but there have been movies and TV shows based on our favorite comics for decades. For all the action we see on screen, however, we hardly...
Batman - Page 6
Jared Leto’s Joker will be an important component in Suicide Squad, but we may get to see him on screen before then, as it’s being reported that Leto will make a cameo appearance in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman before he makes his formal debut in Suicide Squad. If the rumor is true, it looks like DC is definitely taking another page out of the Marvel handbook, which isn’t exactly a bad thing. In other Joker-related news, those laughable tattoos from our first official look at Leto in character might not actually be a part of his look.
With a cast filled with villains and antiheroes from all corners of the DC comic book universe, Suicide Squad was already looking like one of the most jam-packed superhero movies of all time before Ben Affleck was reportedly spotted arriving at the film’s Toronto set. Although nothing has been confirmed, this certainly lend credence to the rumors that Batman (or at least Bruce Wayne) will be showing up in David Ayer’s supervillains-on-a-mission movie.
After selecting the best sci-fi movies of the last 25 years and the best comedies of the last 25 years, the only logical way to wrap up our #CountdownToUltron and Avengers 2 here on ScreenCrush was to choose the best superhero movies of the last 25 years as well. Initially, this was just supposed to be a brief essay. But on an innocent field trip to the world’s most advanced genetics lab, this blog post was bitten by a radioactive list and transformed into the gargantuan piece you see before you. On that day, we all learned a valuable lesson: That with great power must come great listicles.
Frank Miller hadn’t tweeted for over three and a half years before today. Guess he waited until he had something major to tweet about it. I would say this qualifies:
Rather than create an entirely new Batmobile or simply modernize the caped crusader’s more classic model, Zack Snyder basically took the tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and combined it with the vague shape of the retro model for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We got a peek at the tumbler last year via the first official photo of Ben Affleck’s brooding Batman last year, but now you can get a more thorough look at the hero’s super-vehicle with this new footage.
Joker fans can’t get enough of charting every facet of Jared Leto‘s transformation into the Clown Prince of Crime for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, but what of Gotham’s take on Batman’s most famous foe? Rest assured, lone fan of Gotham, we’ll get a more formal Joker origin story early on in Season 2 this fall.
Despite the Batman vs. Superman trailer leaking online over the weekend, Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder still went ahead with their big IMAX presentation yesterday in over 35 cities across the U.S. and Canada. It should have been the first time anyone saw the trailer, but after the leak, everyone had seen it. So Snyder had to give the fans a little something extra...
We’re a little over a week away from the biggest movie of the summer, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. In less than ten years, Marvel has built a powerful brand in Hollywood thanks to their great casting, sharp writing, and an ability to distill decades of comic books down to fun, accessible adventures. A big part of that translation process is the look of their movies, and particularly the look of their characters. And that’s all about costumes, which is a particular specialty of Marvel’s. Between Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the rest, they’ve got some sharp-dressed heroes.
ScreenCrush editor, comic-book lover, and undiagnosed masochist Matt Singer is systematically watching every single (American) comic-book movie ever made in the order in which they were released. This week in The Complete History of Comic-Book Movies: The Dynamic Duo return, in decidedly less than dynamic fashion.
