Batman 2018: AKA Shut up Kevin Conroy!

 

Batman-Ninja

This past week has given us our first look at not one but TWO new Batman animated films that don’t feature the vocal talents of Kevin Conroy! Somewhere, Two-Face’s nipples just got hard! Drawing from all-new material and set in feudal Japan is Batman Ninja. Now I know that sounds like a shitty ploy to get you to buy your kids new toys of Batman as a ninja and Joker, as a ninja, and Harley Quinn as…wait for it…a ninja, but it isn’t. This is a very beautifully detailed anime of Batman as he faces off against the craziest Joker we may have seen since someone thought Jared Leto would be an awesome Joker. Either way it looks 100% badass. The trailer gives us a glimpse at Robin, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Two-Face, Poison Ivy, Clayface, and Grodd. Yup…you heard me…mother-effing Gorilla Grodd as, what appears to be, a warlord! An english dubbed version is coming with a voice cast that is yet to be revealed but, I for one, cannot wait to miss most of the movie reading subtitles just to hear Wataru Takagi do the creepiest scream as the Joker when he attacks batman with a katana in hand. After this trailer, I dare you not to say shinseina tawagoto Batoman!

I mean…COME ON!! My only question is, how the hell does Batman have a Batwing and a few other tech gadgets in feudal Japan? Ah who cares!?

As if that wasn’t enough. DC Animation finally brings us an adaptation of one of my favorite Batman Elseworlds titles in Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. Set in Gotham in 1889, Bruce Wayne returns from a trip to Europe and takes up the mantle of the Batman to stop the legendary Jack the Ripper who has come to Gotham. While the translation to animation doesn’t quite convey the gritty style of the comic (originally drawn masterfully by Hellboy’s Mike Mignola), it does look like it follows the story arc beautifully. Finally there will be a viable reason for those damned steam-punk cosplayers to be at SDCC with their damned Dr. Floobert’s Amazing Gizmotron-Doohickity-Pew-Pew Ray Gun or whatever the hell they call it. Either way, check out the trailer below and, look for Gotham by Gaslight on January 23rd 2018 with Batman Ninja later in 2018.

The League Of DC Comes Together..

 The Justice League have assembled.. sorry they have united in the newest trailer for the upcoming blockbuster for the DC cinematic universe. Since last year’s San Diego Comic Con, we have been treated to full blown trailers and other clips, but this is our chance to see this team in full tilt boogie level action.

This preview does the job of every good trailer and makes you want more, but with the speed bumps that the DC Universe has seen, the doubts are in the water and I will not add to it. This trailer is an excellent piece that gives you the right taste of everyone and reveals more of the Justice League team that you might have been wondering about. I know that I am not alone with the thought of Aquaman stealing this movie and owning every scene he is in.

 As the DC promotion train picks up stream, the hopes for Justice League can only grow and November can’t get here quick enough. There is the possible question out there of DC ability to finally reach MARVEL’s cinematic levels in the theaters, but those question should finally be ignored and DC can focus on their own film legacy.

Just in case you need the reminder, JUSTICE LEAGUE will be in theaters November 17th

NEW Batman v. Superman Trailer and it’s Wonder…full

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer)

Jimmy Kimmel last night gave us the latest trailer for Zach Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. It’s pretty sizable at just shy of 3 minutes long and before I launch into my dissection of the trailer, I will give you all a chance to bow out and just show you the trailer…

Wow!! Intense huh kids? Now excusing the fact that Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor is clown shoes and that, what I believe is, Doomsday looks like a cave troll from Lord of the Rings, there are quite a few things I love in this trailer. Let’s get right to the big one! Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman emerging from behind her shield looked completely bad-ass and 100% hot! Those who said she didn’t fit the part, based on what we’ve seen in this trailer, will be eating those words early next year. So we now know that the Doomsday/Bizarro hybrid thing is a result of Luthor playing Victor von Frankenstein with General Zod’s body. What we don’t know is whether or not it was Lex’s intention to create such a destructive monster or if he was trying to harness Kryptonian power for himself. The other thing we learn is that Batman will clearly be using Superman’s morals against him. Superman clearly says “Stay Down! If I wanted it, you would be dead already!” This is followed by Batman whopping the shit out of my guy for the next few scenes. All in all, I think those who says it reveals too much are sorely mistaken and I believe we might have a decent film here. I guess this will be settled in May of 2016.

The Bat Is Unmasked..

The team behind Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice have released a new clip to the world and this scene is shocking to say the least..

There is a lot that could be read in this clip and, on the other hand, there is a lot that is not said. Is this a delusion of kryptonian grandeur or a Gotham nightmare or is this all of the above in a twisted reality?

Tell us your thoughts and don’t forget to check out Jimmy Kimmel Live this Wednesday for the world debut of the new Dawn Of Justice trailer.
