Since Batman vs. Superman was first announced, many openly wondered how Batman, a dude with no discernible superpowers, would be able to fight Superman, a dude with ALL the superpowers, without getting completely destroyed rather quickly. Director Zack Snyder knows that’s on your mind and has a very simple answer for how Batman plans to even the playing field: he’s going to cheat.

The other day, FOX’s Gotham significantly upped its Batman quotient with the announcement of its Mr. Freeze, today doubling down with the addition of a younger Hugo Strange. Law & Order and Jurassic franchise vet B.D. Wong will suit up as the nefarious Strange, and that’s great! It’s also terrible, but great!

FOX’s Gotham has a spotty track record when it comes to introducing major Bat-villains early (well, a spotty track record for everything, really), and the latest is downright cold-hearted. Batman won’t be sending Mr. Freeze to the cooler just yet, but young Bruce may at least cross paths with Victor Fries, as portrayed by House of Cards alum Nathan Darrow.

We’ve known for some time that the upcoming Wonder Woman movie would take place in two time periods: modern day and World War I. But, what if that modern day time period, wasn’t exactly modern day. As it turns out, the Wonder Woman movie will actually serve as a prequel to Batman vs. Superman, taking place before the events of that movie.

This week, Batman co-creator Bob Kane was posthumously given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder in attendance to give a speech about Kane’s ongoing influence in film, television and comics.

Watch a ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Trailer, Old-Timey Style

by Charles Bramesco October 19, 2015 @ 12:18 PM
The video title clocks the date of imaginary-release at 1949, but janky capes-and-tights pictures in the style emulated above filled cineplexes through the ‘50s, thrilling audiences with their tales of derring-do. If you’re so inclined, feel free to interpret the rudimentary writing on display in the video, sampled from the crude superhero films of the era, as a comment on Zack Snyder’s capabilities as a stylist of dialogue. If not, simply sit back and enjoy the skill with which bits and pieces of old-timey Batman and Superman flicks have been stitched together to create something new.

Warner Bros. Set to Make First R-Rated Batman Movie

The Batman movies have always been on the darker and grittier side, Bat-nipples not withstanding. A few minor edits and any of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films could have gone from a PG-13 to an R-rating. The Joker did slam a guy’s head down onto the point of a pencil, after all. But, while they’ve previously only flirted with a level of intensity only seen in R-rated films, Warner Bros. has reportedly given approval for an upcoming Batman movie to actually be rated R.

Whatever your feelings on FOX’s Gotham, few would argue that Robin Taylor’s Penguin proved an early highlight of the show, accented by screen legend Carol Kane as his eccentric mother. Now, the Penguin family lineage grows even odder, as Pee-wee Herman himself, Paul Reubens signs on to play Penguin’s father (again) in Gotham Season 2.
