Affleck speaks about Justice League


Via an interview (for what, I’m not sure) with EW.COM, Ben Affleck said the following about JUSTICE LEAGUE having two directors…
“[This film is] an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes. I’ve never had that experience before making a movie. I have to say, I really love working with Zack, and I really love the stuff we’ve done with Joss.”

Justice League Re-shoots.....


everything Mr. Morton said is spot-on. The Cyborg character was altered quite a bit during the reshoots. Also, as I’ve been saying since June 2nd of this year, the JL reshoots and the resulting changes being made to the film are significant. These reshoots – which are still taking place – are not standard pick-ups/additional photography. Why? Apparently, an early cut of the film was deemed “unwatchable.” Thus, substantial changes to the film were ordered.

The Flying Fox


The new emphasis on working together is reflected visually by Batman’s niftiest new toy: the Flying Fox, a brutalist plane big enough to hold a whole cinematic universe of super-personalities. “You can put three Batmobiles in the lower part of it,” says production designer Patrick Tatopoulos (Batman v Superman). “I didn’t want to do a sleek airplane; it needed to feel like an extremely avant-garde classic. With the maneuverability of a jet—but it can actually carry things.”

The Neil Gaiman Batman Story That Never Was

http://www.cbr.com/batman-neil-gaiman-simon-bisley/


The period following the release of the 1989 Batman film were crazy, as the graphic novel, Arkham Asylum, by Grant Morrison and Dave McKean, had exploded in sales popularity due to its release in conjunction with the Batman film. DC Comics, naturally, wanted more books like Arkham Asylum to sell.
Therefore, in 1990, they signed a deal with their up-and-coming star writer on Sandman, Neil Gaiman, along with the awesome artist, Simon Bisley, to do a graphic novel in the vein of Arkham Asylum.
Gaiman later recalled: There’s a story that I signed a contract with DC to write called The Night Circus which is all about Batman going to the circus and that was meant to have been a painted book with Simon Bisley many, many years ago. Whether it will happen or not I don’t know, but it would be a lovely story to do.
Gaiman also noted elsewhere back in 1998, “it was started back then, and then Simon signed an exclusive deal with tundra, and the whole thing was forgotten.”

Batman rides a dinosaur in first look at Dark Nights

 IMG_9988
There’s more to this preview than just the (awesome) image of Batman on a T-Rex.  As Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo have promised, there are whole aspects of the DCU we haven’t seen in some time: the Challengers of the Unknown, Red Tornado, the Multiverse map from Multiversity, and more.  Check out this sneak preview of the highly anticipated event where you can see the Justice League engaged in outer space gladiatorial combat, strange symbols in the desert, and yes, Batman riding a dinosaur.

‘The Batman’ director teases “very emotional” story


Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice 
 “It’s my hope to tell a very emotional Batman story,” Reeves told Yahoo Movies
 “What I love that [Nolan] did was that he took the genre seriously,” Reeves said. “What studios are willing to make at the moment is a very, very narrow band of films. What I discovered is that this genre has the potential to be about something more. You can use the metaphors of the genre to talk about [a lot].

The Bat-Ship?

but.....does it dock in Gotham Harbour?

Batman: The Animated mini-series



It's 25 years since Batman: The Animated Series brought a classic yet modern Dark Knight to the small screen.
Rated as the best adaptation of Batman anywhere outside of comics by IGN and the second-best animated series of all time (after The Simpsons, of course), Batman: The Animated Series appealed to comic-book readers, fans of the recent Tim Burton Batman movies, and new young fans alike

 As part of the DC Super Hero Collection license we will produce a new mini-series of figurines and magazines based on the hit 1992 Batman: The Animated Series. The figurines will be presented at 1:16 scale and feature the main characters from the show in classic poses, and sculpted in the unique art style of the show.

Each figurine will be presented in a window box designed packaging to match the recently re-launched DC Super Hero Collection. The figurine will also come with a 12-page magazine that will feature articles and artwork from the Batman: The Animated Series."
Six seemed a good number for a mini-series. Of course, Batman and the Joker had to be included, but who else? Harley Quinn seemed a cert. The character was created for the series long before she made it to the comic books (and eventually the big screen in 2016's Suicide Squad). So, here was the provisional running order...
Classic villain the Penguin had a great look for the show, rotund, finely dressed, with the monocle providing a sophisticated touch. Catwoman's grey all-in-one jumpsuit and whip bore similarities to her contemporary comic-book portrayal, while a sultry Poison Ivy gave the set a satisfying 50/50 male to female ratio.
That was the easy bit. Next up, in two weeks' time, Part 2: Development, the list gets switched, and finding the perfect pose.

Harley Quinn & Batman Prequel Comic


Fans of DC Comics will have more to look forward to than the animated Batman & Harley Quinn movie, now that an accompanying comic series has been revealed. The early film trailers of Batman, Nightwing, and Harley teaming up to save the world showed that the odd extension of Batman: The Animated Series was worth fans’ attention, but it’s only the middle chapter of a much larger, even more promising story coming from DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
We’re pleased to offer the first exclusive details of the new comic book series HARLEY QUINN AND BATMAN, a prequel telling the tale of how our title characters wound up in the spot where the movie begins. Harley Quinn may be pulled out of prison to help the Dark Knight bring down Poison Ivy, but before that, fans will need to see what got her locked up to begin with. And to make the Digital First series every bit as promising as the film, some of the most proven talent in the extended world of Batman: The Animated Series has been recruited.

Justice League get manga makeover for new series in Japan

In Japanese, the word manga can technically be used to refer to all comic books. In practice, though, “manga” is generally reserved for Japanese-produced books, with fans and professionals often using amekomi, a shortened form of “American comics,” for content originating in the U.S. But this month, the line between manga and amekomi is getting blurred with the beginning of a new series titled Batman and the Justice League, drawn by female manga artist Shiori Teshirogi and serialized in publisher Akita Shoten’s monthly Champion Red manga anthology as of its latest issue, which went on sale June 19.

About That JUSTICE LEAUGE 'Massive Reshoots' Rumor



According to producer Charles Roven (via an interview with COLLIDER.COM, says that’s simply not the case – though there is additional photography coming soon.


“We’re just in the post-production process. That’s where we are. We’re in the middle of it, and I think it’s pretty common knowledge that we’re going to be doing some additional photography. The complications of trying to, you know -- Henry [Cavill]’s on MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE, and our Aquaman is making AQUAMAN, Amy [Adams]’ doing SHARPE OBJECTS -- so everybody’s busy, and it’s that crazy Rubix cube of trying to find a way of getting everybody in the place to do the work that we need to do. Which is not that vast, the amount of work that we have to do, but it’s still really complicated that everybody’s in different places around the world. The reality is we are in the midst of trying to schedule the only additional photography that we’ve been trying to schedule. We haven’t done any additional photography up to this point…Since we’ve wrapped, there’s been no additional photography.”

Zack Snyder steps down from ‘Justice League’




A terrible family tragedy has forced Zack Snyder to step down from his work on Justice League, he revealed to The Hollywood Reporter. Snyder’s wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder will also be taking a break. The Avengers (and soon to be Batgirl) director Joss Whedon will be taking over and finishing Justice League.
In March, Snyder’s daughter Autumn committed suicide at the age of 20. Snyder initially planned to continue to work on Justice League, even after taking two weeks off to cope with the tragic loss, but understandably, it became too much to deal with.
“In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was way through it,” Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter today, with his wife Deborah sitting by his side. “The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all consuming. And in the last two months I’ve come to the realization …I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time. I’m having a hard time.”
Warner Bros. is supporting the Snyders during this difficult time. “What they are going through is unimaginable, and my heart — our hearts — go out to them,” says Warner Bros. Pictures president Toby Emmerich.

The Secret Behind Creating The Batman


Bob Kane (above) who got all the credit.
Bill Finger 
A new documentary makes the compelling case that Bob Kane, the Caped Crusader’s acknowledged father, unjustly hogged all the credit at the expense of his collaborator, a little-known writer named Bill Finger.
“Batman & Bill,” debuting Saturday on Hulu, follows author Marc Tyler Nobleman’s obsessive quest to learn more about the mysterious Finger. Nobleman’s research was poured into the 2012 book “Bill the Boy Wonder: the Secret Co-Creator of Batman.”

Could Josh Gad Be The Penguin?

OK, I'm not going to say that Josh Gad has been cast as The Penguin in THE BATMAN (or GOTHAM CITY SIRENS, BATGIRL or NIGHTWING which are other BEU films currently in the works), based off one obscure tweet. But it is sort of weird that he would randomly tweet out a picture of The Penguin. Who knows, maybe he's just a big Batman fan and The Penguin is his favorite villain.

The Batman director Matt Reeves on his vision for the solo film

The Batman director Matt Reeves on his vision for the solo film


Warner Bros. Pictures recently brought on director Matt Reeves to helm their upcoming solo movie The Batman, although he is far too busy putting the finishing touches on 20th Century Fox’s War for the Planet of the Apes to have gotten too deep into it already. Nevertheless, the Batman director recently told Los Angeles Daily News about his vision for the Caped Crusader.

“It’s a strange thing to be involved in the two franchises which were the two that I was connected to most as a child,” Reeves said. “I just was obsessed with Batman when I was a kid. What I find so interesting about him as a character is that, as far a superhero goes, he’s not superhuman, he is a person. And he is a tortured soul who is grappling with his past and trying to find a way to be in a world that has a lot that’s wrong with it and trying to find a way to reconcile all of that.”

Best JOKERS

http://www.blastr.com/2016-8-5/love-joker-every-performance-joker-ranked?utm_campaign=trueAnthem%3A+Trending+Content&utm_content=57a65de104d30138a4183364&utm_medium=trueAnthem&utm_source=facebook
Personally I hated Jared Leto.

What makes a great Joker?
Is it that smile? The laugh? The demented things he does?
Ever since the Joker first appeared in comics 76 years ago, he has been tormenting Batman and fascinating fans. He's seen as the best villain in the comic book world due to his unpredictability and the fact that he is the polar opposite of Batman, among other things.
As the story goes, the Joker was partially based on the 1928 silent movie The Man Who Laughs, starring Conrad Veidt. It's been the subject of much discussion for decades as to whether Jerry Robinson or Batman co-creators Bob Kane or Bill Finger first came up with the character, or if it was a combination of all three.


7. Honorable mention: Cameron Monaghan, Gotham

He's not technically the Joker, and he met with an early demise, but Monaghan is the closest we've come to a Clown Prince of Crime thus far on this Batman prequel series.
- Most insane moment: The first time Jerome is revealed to have a bit of Joker in him, discussing how he killed his mother with a smile on his face.
- Style: From calm to sadistic, the fact that Jerome could flip a switch like that was truly disturbing. As the series went on, Jerome embraced the madness.
- Laugh: His may be the most evil laugh of all (with apologies to Firefly's Wash.

6. Michael Emerson, The Dark Knight Returns (animated movie)

It says a lot when the lowest ranking Joker on this list is still pretty great. Emmy winner Emerson is one of the most captivating TV actors out there and brings that to his performance as one of the most horrifying versions of the Joker in the animated universe.
- Most insane moment: That final brutal, bloody, deadly battle with Batman, in which the Joker fights on with a Batarang in his eye.
- Style: This Joker is well-dressed and bloodthirsty, mowing down innocent people as he tries to finally defeat Batman. Though we'll admit, the voice reminds us a bit of Paul Lynde, which takes you out of it a bit.
- Laugh: Nothing too noteworthy here, compared to other Jokers.

5. Jared Leto, Suicide Squad

Leto has a handful of scenes in the new movie, and doesn't measure up to previous Jokers in the time he has. Plus, that costume and makeup design, while certainly distinct, has been a hit-and-miss proposition with the fans.
- Most insane moment: One of the best scenes of the film (Spoiler alert!) involves the Joker making Harley Quinn swear an oath of undying love and loyalty before she dives head-first into the same vat of acid he did. The Joker joins her in a bizarre ritual of consummating their mutual insanity.
- Style: This one is more the punk Joker, but in this movie, he's driven entirely by his desire to reunite with his lady love (a.k.a. his "property"), Harley. Leto's smile may be the most insane of all.
- Laugh: This one is more drawn out than most, a definite contrast from what we've heard before.

4. Jack Nicholson, Batman (1989)

This capering madman is, in many ways just as campy as Romero's Joker, but with more of a murderous streak. Nicholson brought the character back in a big way, offering up a host of memorable quotes and moments.
- Most insane moment: Again, this is a tough choice, but we'll go with the Joker's skin-tone makeup appearance in an art museum, where he shows off his artistic side to the tune of Prince's "Party Man." This Joker isn't just some run-of-the-mill criminal; there's a method to the madness. And more than anything, he wants Batman's head (and Vicki Vale).
- Style: Some Jokers seem to be making it up as they go along, but this one with his idea to use Smilex to murder his way through Gotham, has a master plan. He's a perfect contrast to Michael Keaton's grim Bats.
- Laugh: Nicholson bursts out laughing in the most insane way, like he just heard the funniest joke ever told.

3. Cesar Romero, Batman (1966)

The first Joker onscreen is, for many, still the one they remember the most fondly. Romero poured himself into this role, unshaven mustache and all.
- Most insane moment: The early Batman episodes allowed the villains to actually be menacing at times, and there's something really creepy about the Joker masquerading as an opera singer in "Pagliacci" wearing that mask in Romero's very first Joker episode, "The Joker is Wild." The mask was recycled in the first Joker bank robbery scene in The Dark Knight.
- Style: This Joker was only occasionally scary or threatening. More than anything he just seemed to be having a great time, fascinated and excited by his own brilliance.
- Laugh: When most people think of the Joker, they think of Romero's melodic laugh (contrasted with Frank Gorshin's Riddler giggle).

2. Heath Ledger, The Dark Knight

Ledger's Oscar-winning performance is the most captivating one in live-action, playing the mobster who "just wants to see the world burn." When the actor was cast, a lot of fans questioned whether he'd be able to truly capture the anarchic and potentially terrifying spirit of what many considered to be the best depictions of the Joker in the comics. From his first moment on screen, Ledger left no doubt what the answer to those questions was.
- Most insane moment: Again, nearly every scene is a classic with Ledger. But we'd have to go with his surprise appearance in a hospital in a nurse's outfit, of all things, in order to torment the newly transformed Harvey "Two-Face" Dent and ultimately blow up the building.
- Style: That mobster-like voice, those tics, the unsettling scars on the mouth. So much about this Joker makes your skin crawl. Ledger gave us a portrayal of pure unadulterated madness that disturbs to this day.
- Laugh: Ledger's cackle comes across like he can't help himself, the insanity is just flowing out of him.

1. Mark Hamill, Batman: The Animated Series and more

The recent release of the animated Batman: The Killing Joke made it official: Hamill is the definitive Joker (just as his counterpart, Kevin Conroy is the definitive Batman to many fans). He's also played the Joker for the longest time by far, for 24 years now since the debut of the animated series - and he played off Harley Quinn for the first time, which is no small feat.
- Most insane moment: Really, there are so many to choose from and The Killing Joke is in a class all its own. In "Joker's Favor," the first Joker episode aired on televisision, some poor sap named Charlie makes the mistake of cussing out the Joker in traffic. Instead of letting it go, the Clown Prince of Crime torments him and stalks him, making Charlie do a favor for him. Now, that's demented.
- Style: This Joker has a hint of an upper-class British accent, playing off his madness perfectly. It also makes him seem very cool and calculating.
- Laugh: Hamill really lets it go here with the laugh, and it's the definitive one for many fans

Heath Ledger’s sisters say....

Joker role in ‘The Dark Knight’ had nothing to do with his death

A documentary about Heath Ledger’s life called I Am Heath Ledger will air on Spike TV next month. It premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival over the weekend, and Ledger’s sisters Kate Ledger and Ashleigh Bell were there to debunk a popular, yet unfounded rumor about their brother’s untimely death.
We know that Heath Ledger took his role in The Dark Knight very seriously. You can see that up on the screen as you watch his Oscar-winning performance as The Joker. But as the rumor goes… all the darkness associated with The Joker took a toll on Ledger, leaving him depressed, which led to his drug overdose. According to Ledger’s sisters, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
“Everything that came to light about the Joker, we were all so confused,” Kate said. She and Bell went on to call speculation that the role made their brother depressed “so not true.”
“Honestly, it was the absolute opposite,” Kate went on. “He had an amazing sense of humor, and I guess maybe only his close family and friends really knew that, but he was having fun. He wasn’t depressed about the Joker.”
