Does Naomi Take Place In The Arrowverse?

The CW has been anchored in large part by its TV shows based on DC Comics properties for about a decade now, beginning with "Arrow" in 2012. The show kicked off what is now known as the Arrowverse, which consists of other series in the same universe such as "The Flash," "Legends of Tomorrow," "Superman & Lois," and "Batwoman," as well as "Supergirl" and "Black Lightning," which recently ended their runs. But new shows are coming in to fill the void, and the latest DC series to enter the fold is ...

The Flash Movie Is Getting A Comic Book Prequel Co-Starring Ben Affleck's Batman

After years of development, Andy Muschetti's "The Flash" is finally racing into theaters this year. Based on the iconic "Flashpoint" storyline, Ezra Miller's Scarlet Speedster will journey into the DC multiverse for an adventure that could have ramifications for young Barry Allen's past, present, and future. However, before he crosses the finish line and onto the big screen, this version of the Fastest Man Alive will star in his own comic book series that will act as a prequel to the highly anti...

You'll Be Able To Listen To The Batman Theme Music Tonight

Some of you reading this may not know Michael Giacchino by name just yet, but you've definitely heard his music. The Oscar winner has become one of Hollywood's most in-demand composers over the last two decades thanks to his work on everything from Pixar movies (yes, he's the one who made you cry your eyes out with his "Married Life" theme from "Up") to the MCU's "Spider-Man" film trilogy, the "Jurassic World" movies, and such acclaimed non-franchise titles as "Bad Times at the El Royale" and "J...

The 20 Best Michael Keaton Movies, Ranked

Perhaps best known as the Caped Crusader of Tim Burton's "Batman" films, Michael Keaton has had a wide-ranging and thriving career. Keaton started off in comedy, training at the legendary Second City, before working on iconic television series such as "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" and "Maude." Keaton finally entered the big screen in "Night Shift" with a crackling, frenetic energy that would launch a successful film comedy career before Burton took the risk of casting him as Batman, a role that ...

The First Morbius Trailer Hit Two Years Ago Today – Happy Anniversary, Morbius Trailer!

It's hard to remember what the world was like in the Before Times. What did we even do before Sony dropped the teaser trailer for "Morbius" on January 13, 2020? Watch trailers for other films? Surely not!Movie theaters know us better than that. It's why they've shown the "Morbius" trailer in front of almost every film released over the last past years. You can only imagine how terrified I was when I sat down to watch "The French Dispatch" last fall and didn't get the chance to hear Jared Leto's ...

Batgirl Movie Adds Rebecca Front, Corey Johnson, And Ethan Kai To The Cast

It's the Bat-Family's world, and we're just living in it. This year alone will see Robert Pattinson suit up for the first time as the Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves' Elseworlds-style DC film, "The Batman," before Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton reprise their respective versions of the Dark Knight in the fall's multiversal DCEU adventure, "The Flash." Keaton will also reportedly return as Bruce Wayne and his alter ego in Warner Bros. and DC Films' upcoming "Batgirl," with "In the Heights" breakout ...

Batgirl Images Confirm The Return Of Michael Keaton's Batman And Another Key DC Character

Last month, we reported that Michael Keaton had joined the cast of "Batgirl," the upcoming HBO Max movie set in the DC Extended Universe. The news first leaked when a cast list made its way online; it has since been deleted, but The Wrap independently confirmed that Keaton is reprising his Batman role for "Batgirl." Production on the film is already underway in Glasgow, Scotland, and now some unofficial images from the set have popped up online. These images would appear to further confirm that ...

Ben Affleck Opens Up About His Batman Casting Backlash

While "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Zack Snyder's Justice League" are quite divisive films (and by "divisive" I personally mean "terrible"), Ben Affleck's portrayal of Batman was probably one of the better things to come out of them. He may have been a little older and more grizzled than his predecessors, but he was able to crack a joke here and there to remind people how fun the Caped Crusader could be. He also wasn't afraid to get in on the hand to hand combat and didn't rely too h...

Ben Affleck's Favorite Batman Scenes He's Filmed Are In The Flash Movie

Ben Affleck's time as Batman has been rocky, to say the least. The actor first played Gotham's dark knight in 2016, and his run as the hero was plagued by backlash, directorial changes, and the actor's own struggle with addiction. In the years since he first donned the cape, people have come around to Affleck's Batman, which is great, because he's still slated to play the hero one more time.Even as a new Batman film looms on the horizon with Robert Pattinson in the title role, Affleck still has ...

Every DC Movie Made Prior To The DCEU Ranked From Worst To Best

With the creative success of "Birds of Prey" and "The Suicide Squad" and films like "Black Adam," "Shazam! The Fury of the Gods," and the multiverse-spanning "The Flash" on the way, the DC Extended Universe has finally found its footing. The DCEU got off to a controversial start with 2013's "Man of Steel," but has since proved that it's as comfortable with comedy as it is with super-heroics.However, it was Richard Donner's 1978 "Superman" that became the first DC film to meet with real success, ...

Why Michael Keaton Didn't Return For A Third Batman Movie

There are those of us who think Michael Keaton is the best Batman and there's an entirely different camp that might think Val Kilmer is the best Batman. Keaton handed the role down to Kilmer in "Batman Forever," and since then, George Clooney, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck have each taken turns donning the Dark Knight's cape and cowl.With "The Flash," Keaton is set to return in the role that made him famous beyond "Beetlejuice." Last year's DC FanDome teaser for "The Flash" let us hear Keaton'...

Morbius Gets Pushed Again As The Venomverse Vampire Moves To April

Sony Pictures has to be flying high right now. With all the success from "Spider-Man: No Way Home," they're probably ecstatic to get more movies from the Sony Spider-Man Universe out into theaters. And they have the next one already lined up thanks to "Morbius" starring Jared Leto.However, due to rising cases of COVID-19 thanks to the Omicron variant, the studio has decided to move the release date for the Living Vampire's live-action feature debut. And though it may sound like a joke, there's c...

Val Kilmer Was The Best Batman, Actually: Defending The Most Overlooked Dark Knight

The trailer for Matt Reeves' "The Batman" has given us a glimpse at Robert Pattinson's version of the Caped Crusader, and he might end up being the perfect performer to don the cowl. His haunted expression and fierce pout reminded me of Val Kilmer's turn in the 1995 film "Batman Forever," which I contend is the best live-action Batman performance, hands down. I know that makes me sound crazier than Jim Carrey's Edward Nygma, but Kilmer's Batman is exactly what he needs to be: an adult man torn b...

The 15 Best Movie Trailers Of 2021

To talk about the best trailer of 2021, we should first discuss an ad that often followed them."Heartbreak feels good in a place like this" -- that's one of many dazzling non-sequiturs Nicole Kidman offered in an AMC spot this year, one which found the cinema legend in a private screening room enjoying "Creed," "La La Land," and countless other movies. Questionable movie night programming and general strangeness aside, the ad is almost uncomfortably sincere. It suggests, at its best, that the ac...

Why Marvel Studios' Spider-Man Movies Avoided Doc Ock And Green Goblin

Tom Holland's first few outings as Peter Parker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are notable for what they lack -- namely, recognizable villains (to general audiences, at least) that have already been depicted in prior live action "Spider-Man" movies. Truly classic foes, such as Doc Ock and Green Goblin, were seemingly off the table. Instead, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures opted for more obscure characters in Michael Keaton's Vulture and Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio, allowing the famous actors t...

The Flash Will Apparently Bring Back Man Of Steel's General Zod & Faora

Man, remember the days when the "Flash" movie was meant to be the first "solo" film to be released after "Justice League" in 2017? How quickly things change. In the time since, multiverse stories have become all the rage -- though general audiences have come to associate that with "Spider-Man" of all characters, through the double-whammy of "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" and the most recent runaway success of "Spider-Man: No Way Home." That sort of leaves the time-traveling, multiverse-hopp...
