Batman V Superman - Dawn of Justice

San Diego Comic Con 2014 is here.  Although there is no official mention of any presentations for “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice”, many believed we’d get some reveals from the anticipated 2016 film.  Those people were right.  Firstly, Warner Brothers has the Cape and Cowl to be worn by actor Ben Affleck in the film, on display.  Even better tough, the studio has released a new colour photo of Ben Affleck as Batman.  It looks like a slightly younger version of Batman from Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” has stepped off the page. It looks fantastic! I feel like a young kid at a department store seeing Santa Claus for the first time. I’m completely awestruck! Stay tuned, because I think were in for a few more surprises before San Diego Comic Con is over…

Double Trouble: GOTHAM Is About To Get Strange!

Two Face

We know that 3 of Batman’s premiere villains are set to appear on the FOX prequel series GOTHAM. We can add another pair of baddies to the list.  One being a top-tier character to the mythos, the other is probably not as well-known to the general audience members.  Harvey Dent better known as his split faced, coin flipping psychologically damaged alter ego Two-Face, will appear on “GOTHAM.”  Unlike Catwoman and Poison Ivy, Two-Face won’t be a contemporary of young Bruce Wayne.  “We’re playing Harvey Dent slightly older. He’s more Gordon’s age in this telling. One of the things to avoid in order not to tell a high school story — which would be great, but it’s a different show on a different network at a different time that I would not be a part of. But he will go back to school and villains will be part of that world.” Batman Forever gave us a piss poor version of Harvey Dent thanks to Joel Schumacher and Tommy Lee Jones. While Christopher Nolan and Aaron Eckhart, brought justice to the character, he was second fiddle to Heath Ledger as The Joker.  So I’m hopeful that regular appearances on the TV series, will give us our first fully realized live action version of Harvey Dent/Two-Face.

Hugo Strange

The other villain confirmed for a Season 1 appearance is Hugo Strange.  Unless you’re an avid comic book reader, or played the “Arkham” trilogy video games, than Hugo Strange is completely new territory. “Hugo Strange is going to pop up because we’re going to start dealing with how Arkham was created and why Arkham was created in the way that it was so, yeah, absolutely. It’s a Season One thing because in our telling of it the way Arkham was created and the why and how is one of the causes of the particular criminal climate in Gotham that allowed Batman to happen. The revolving door of Arkham is both a brilliant narrative device because it allows you to — you don’t have to kill people off, you can just put them in cold storage.” Hearing quotes like this, makes me all the more excited for the show.  “GOTHAM” premieres in less than 2 months, September 22, 2014 on FOX.

Gotham-SSB

FOX will air “GOTHAM” in the United States, while here in Canada, the broadcast rights belong to CTV.  CTV recently released a slightly alternate trailer for the series.  It’s a bit more revealing than the American one, giving us our first look and listen at, Edward Nygma. We get more dialogue from Det. Harvey Bullock. We learn that Selina Kyle witnessed the murders of Thomas & Martha Wayne.  Oswald Cobblepot is called The Penguin, and we finally learn the identity the mysterious older man Jim Gordon is meeting with in secret…

Note: The image above is a desktop wallpaper, that website co-owner Dave and I conceived of and created.  Feel free to adorn your computers and electronic devices with it.  More on the way.

GOTHAM

GOTHAM is one of the most talked and buzzed about new shows coming our way this fall.  We know it will air, Monday’s at 8pm on Fox, but until today we didn’t know what date the series would premiere. The network put the mystery to rest by revealing that GOTHAM will premier Monday September 22, 2014 at 8pm. “The series follows one cop, destined for greatness, as he navigates a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the rise of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes. The entirely new, untold chapter comes from executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”) and stars Ben McKenzie (“Southland,” “The O.C.”), Donal Logue (“Vikings,” “Sons of Anarchy”) and Jada Pinkett Smith (“Hawthorne,” “Collateral”).” Here’s a short “Hero” promo.  While it doesn’t offer any new footage, the way it’s cut together, coupled with the music will surely cause nerdgasms.
