Ben Affleck Opens Up About Struggles With Alcoholism, Why He Left ‘The Batman’

In 2016, it seemed like the future was bright for Warner Bros.’ The Batman. Ben Affleck, who had just made his debut as an older and wearier Caped Crusader in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, was set to direct the Batman solo flick from a script he was co-writing with longtime DC Comics stalwart Geoff Johns. But a year later, Affleck would step down from the director’s chair. Two years after that, Affleck left The Batman altogether. At the time, Affleck was dealing with publicly-docum...

Birds Of Prey Review – Harley Quinn’s Grand Day Out

Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) gets every opportunity to showcase a variety of trademarks in Birds of Prey, but the shiny, full-throttle feature rarely shows us a character fans will actually recognize. In similar fashion to several other superhero films which have recently lost their way, if there is a character who can, for any reason, be described as “crazy,” then that will become the beginning and end of said character. This is also brought to us here as Ewan McGregor‘s Black Mask never manage...

Batman #363 - Don Newton art

Batman v1 #363, 1983 - Scheming up crimes with her partner, a pale beauty named Nocturna makes her debut in Gotham City. Don Newton's pencils are hard to recognize, mostly due to Alfredo Alcala's inking. His detail-heavy approach works well on the opening splash, but otherwise muddies much of the artwork. Newton reasserts himself toward the end with some inventive layouts, but falls short [Author: Ted Ignacio]

Social Media Cultists Slander Sonic Movie to Boost the Failing Birds of Prey

Twitter cultists have been slandering the Sonic movie in an attempt to promote leftist propaganda film Birds of Prey, making false claims that the video game movie has “homophobic slurs” and “hate crime”.

This Batman producer reveals why Joker actors win Oscars

Michael Uslan can clearly see himself on a bench outside the offices of Columbia Pictures on the day of darkest despair for him and the Batman. It’s the early ’80s, and he and his producing partner Ben Melnicker had just run out of studios to pitch on Uslan’s dream of a new kind of Batman movie, one where Batman was a darker, more serious character than the campy caped crusader he’d been on TV in the ’60s (and at times in the comic books, too). “I had my head between my legs at this point — this...

CS Soapbox: Would a Joker Sequel Sully Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscar?

BEGIN SLIDESHOW CS Soapbox: Would a Joker Sequel Sully Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscar? Todd Phillips’  Joker  made waves last year for not only being the most profitable R-rated movie ever made but for possibly redefining the comic book genre. Led by Joaquin Phoenix’s powerhouse Oscar-winning performance as the titular character,  Joker  resembles more a character study on mental illness and societal isolation than an action-packed superhero film.

‘Birds of Prey’ Writer Christina Hodson on Writing Harley Quinn and How ‘Trainspotting’ Influences Her Writing [Interview]

DC has been a good home to screenwriter Christina Hodson. After writing Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), DC and Warner Bros. hired Hodson to adapt two other comic book properties, including Batgirl. Based on the glowing reception to Birds of Prey, the studio now has another strong voice behind their comic book movies. They haven’t always this much sense of authorship and crystal clear vision. Birds of Prey is a comic book movie that doesn’t overstay its welc...

Revisiting ‘The Rocketeer,’ Disney’s Early Superhero Masterpiece

Oscar, meet Joker: Are comic book movies at Academy Awards to stay?

Back in January when the Oscar nominations were announced, it sure seemed like the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences had finally entered the 21st Century. The traditionally behind-the-curve organization announced that “Joker,” a movie inspired by Batman’s most infamous enemy, would compete in 11 categories, more than any other movie from 2019, including such more conventionally “awards worthy” films as Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time . . . in Ho...

Harley Quinn is emancipated and feeling fantabulous about it.

Why ‘Birds of Prey’ Took Creative Liberties With Its Comic Book Characters

With every comic book movie comes legions of comic book fans who grumble that the costume doesn’t look at all like the one on the page. Birds of Prey has received plenty of that criticism — not only are the central members of the all-female Gotham team very different from the comics, the movie revolves around Harley Quinn, a longtime Batman villain who has never been associated with the Birds of Prey on the page. But “the desire was to create characters that worked for the screen,” producer Sue...
