Archives For Batman

What’s up ladies and gentleman! 2014 is coming to a close and we are hoping that 2015 really turns everything around. We have great writers coming on board, and more than enough content to post for your viewing pleasure–but we forgot to mention that we have a new show. These very very important things that slip our minds. For that we apologize for not trafficking it through the appropriate channels, but we hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

Now I am not a connoisseur of DC comics by any means, I mean, I enjoy them. Not as much as the Marvel brand. But I was intrigued by the new fox show coming out this fall. Usually during the first issue, or in this case first episode, the writer tells the origin story of the main character of the book. In the case of Gotham, there was an origin story of about five characters. There was a lot packed into this first episode. This is not just a quick overview of the first episode. Any after this one will be shorter.

Holy Continuation Batman!

Justice League Dark 22

     This particular part of the “Trinity War” is where the story slows way down.  After all the action this was definitely a letdown for me personally but the art was wonderfully done by Mikel Janin.  The story does not really progress or provide any real answers in this issue.  Wonder Woman is still on a wild goose chase to try and help Superman while Batman is trying to stop her.  Batman is following the lead of the Phantom Stranger and the heroes are divided between the pair.  The story ends with Superman escaping from his restraints and leading a third team for answers as well. In summation, the Justice Leaguers chase their tails all issue long.

    I think this was a case of just too much going on for a smaller caliber book to handle. Jeff Lemire struggled to write the guest crossover characters.  On a positive note the usual suspects like Constantine and Zatanna shined in this issue. Overall everything just seemed a bit forced with too many heroes acting out of character.  Since when does Batman blindly follow the advice of someone he never met? Hopefully the action picks back in part four and the bigger picture starts to get a little clearer. I would have to give this issue a solid yet disappointing 3 out 5.

Playing Catch-up

It’s that time of year again, when all the rumors and whispers are going to be confirmed or shot down. It’s the San Diego Comic Convention and there is a buzz in the air. There have been rumors circulating since The Avengers movie did so well, that a Justice League movie would come into play to compete with the Marvel franchise. But first they should introduce the starring cast within their own franchises.

You of course have Batman. Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises. Everyone knows the line-up. Just recently released you have Man of Steel which introduces Superman. Somewhere in the mix you have the box office bust Green Lantern. But three heroes does not make the Justice League. Tentatively, the next hero we are to meet is The Flash. The untitled Flash movie is set to be released in 2016 as reported by THR. Also reported in the same story is that the sequel to Man of Steel will not be Man of Steel 2, but a Superman/Batman team-up movie. The two are known in some circles as The World’s Finest. The logo for the upcoming film was shown at SDCC as shown below.

All of the details on the Superman/Batman movie have not come together, but we do know that Henry Cavill will be in the role of Superman, since he is signed on for the franchise. Who will play the part of Batman? It does not look like Christian Bale will be in that role as taken from an interview with Entertainment Weekly. It’s likely that Batman will be a rebooted character. But where does Christopher Nolan fit within this team-up? The writer from the Dark Knight series and Man of Steel looks like he is going to be on board. But it looks like he will be an executive producer on the project. David Goyer is also set to come back as a writer for Superman/Batman. Goyer was a co-writer with Nolan on the Man of Steel and many of the Dark Knight movies. Joining Goyer will be director Zack Snyder, who was the director on the Man of Steel movie.

Other actors are set to come back to the next in the DC line of movies. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane from Man of Steel will be back in their roles in the new film. The Superman/Batman film has a scheduled release date of 2015.

To meet the only female character within the Justice League, there are still rumors floating about a TV series about Wonder Woman. Since the success of Arrow, more comics are looking to be portrayed on the small screen, like The S.H.I.E.L.D. We do not know as of yet if other Justice League members such as Green Arrow or Cyborg will make an appearance in the film. The Justice League movie is scheduled to release a year after the Flash movie in 2017.

Does this mean that DC is starting to catch up with Marvel in the motion picture game? Who would you like to see as the new Batman? Who would you want to see play the Flash? Make sure to leave a comment below and share the exciting news with your friends!

World's Finest

Infinite Crisis LogoPlaying new games in beta can be exciting. Get to try out new characters, find out new abilities, and learn about the game you hope to play when it is live one day. Then you encounter the asshole trolls that have been playing the beta longer than you and bitch when you don’t know what you are doing. OF COURSE I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M DOING, IT’S A BETA TEST!

Anyway, Infinite Crisis takes the amazing world of League of Legends and adds a DC twist to it, making it a very recognizable brand. Most people that are excited about this game are ones that have played LoL (League of Legends) and are excited for a new twist on the game.

Infinite Crisis takes DC characters from 6 different universes and puts them into one universe. You have your Prime universe, Gaslight and Nightmare (all live in beta) with characters that will also come from Arcane, Atomic and Mecha universes.

After playing a few rounds it seems that either some people are just getting frustrated, or they don’t realize what graphics settings their game is supposed to be set at. In every game, there are at least 2 people that leave the game which makes the game unfair, since it’s usually 2 from the same side. But there is still much more to discover within the game. The items you purchase seem to be similar to that of LoL. You can customize your character by purchasing skins from the store. You can buy different characters from the store as well.

From the looks of the character select screen, only about half of the playable characters are available at the moment, with more most likely to release as the street date (which is set for sometime in 2013) get closer. But as this E3 season draws to a close tomorrow, there are still many games exciting games to check out and anticipate!

And from my perspective, the race order goes like this: PS4 > Wii U > Xbox One (even though I will be getting an Xbox One).

And by the way, go sign up for the beta if you want to see more of the game play!
