What Exactly Is Going on With Ezra Miller?

Until recently, Ezra Miller was best known for their acting—in the Fantastic Beasts movies, and in the DCEU films, a series which has long been promising Miller’s Flash character their own standalone chapter. Miller’s also known for red-carpet fashion flair. But now they’re making headlines for the wrong reasons.Read more...

Patty Jenkins Is Grateful She Didn't Direct Thor: The Dark World

If all went according to plan, Patty Jenkins would’ve been the first woman to direct a Marvel Cinematic Universe film six years before anyone else. The Wonder Woman director was set to make the Thor: The Dark World back in 2013 but left early in the process due to “creative differences.” Now, years later, she’s opened…Read more...

RIP Lyle Waggoner, Wonder Woman's Stalwart Steve Trevor

Before Chris Pine headed to World War I for Diana of Themyscira in Wonder Woman (or donned a particularly choice tracksuit for Wonder Woman 1984), there was one definitive live-action Steve Trevor: Lyle Waggoner, who sadly passed away today at the age of 84.Read more...

A Costume-Less Batwoman Just Crossed a Line Batman Rarely Has

Batwoman is a much darker show than the other CW superhero fare. It kind of makes sense—Bat stories often veer into gothic horror territory. But Batwoman frequently finds itself falling into what I like to call the “Canadian Torture Porn Trap.” Weird I know. Canada is not a place known for its torture porn! Yet I…Read more...

You Can Finally See What Would've Happened If a Phone Poll Hadn't Killed Jason Todd

Jason Todd’s grim fate is one of the most infamous in superhero comics. Not just for the fact the boy wonder got brained by Batman’s most enduring foe, the Joker, or because he came back from it years later as the Red Hood. But instead, because it was a death mandated by an unprecedented reader poll—and now we have a…Read more...

One of the Very Best Batman Movies Gets a Worthy, Gorgeous Poster

Everyone’s always arguing about Batman. Who played him best? Whose costume was the best? Who had the most supple Bat-lips? It never ends. Then, of course, there’s the debate over which Batman movie is the best. Is it The Dark Knight? The 1989 Tim Burton version? The 1966 Adam West film?Read more...

Cinematic Batman Lips, Ranked

Last night, we got our very at Robert Pattinson suited up as the latest live-action incarnation of Batman. Glimpse is a diplomatic word for it, frankly—softly shot, lit in red, and barely lit at that, we did not get to see much of this new Batman. Not even a full cowl!

The Cast of Birds of Prey on the Balance of Bringing Their Comic Counterparts to Life

Birds of Prey’s colorful aesthetic is ripped right out of the world of comics, but the tack the movie takes with its comic book characters treads a fine line between respecting decades worth of stories and, in some cases, bringing new takes to the table.

Birds of Prey Is a Colorful, Explosive Comic Book Extravaganza

Birds of Prey is not a Suicide Squad sequel. It is not DC and Warner Bros.’ follow up to Joker.
