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! But we saw enough to rank…Read more...

‘Tenet’ Trailer Breakdown: Has Christopher Nolan Made a Time Travel Movie?

Christopher Nolan loves playing with time. Films like Inception and Dunkirk are both based around a ticking-clock timeline, and Memento runs in reverse order. And now he might be going all-in with a time travel movie. Maybe. After a theater-only teaser, the first Tenet trailer has arrived online, and as is usually the case with a Nolan movie, it’s mysterious as hell. But based on the enigmatic footage on display, it really looks like Nolan has made himself a time travel movie. Unless he hasn’t....

‘Batman: The Movie’ Honest Trailer: When Batman Was the Love Child of Christopher Walken and Jeff Goldblum

This weekend brings Joaquin Phoenix’s twisted, unsettling take on Batman’s arch nemesis in Joker. So there’s no better time to take a look back at the big screen origins of The Dark Knight and all of his most famous villains in the equally twisted Batman: The Movie. This isn’t your father’s Batman. Well, actually, this is your father’s Batman, which might explain why the generation of parents who grew up with this version of The Caped Crusader were so much less concerned with violence on televi...

Robert Pattinson Is Going To Be Batman And Y’all Need To Calm Down

Guys, guys, it’s going to be okay The casting choices for Batman and friends have always appeared controversial or pissed off fans for one reason or another, because you can’t make everyone happy I guess. So when it was announced that Robert Pattinson will be the next person to put on the mask and people threw a fit it wasn’t a total shock. But also — chill out. The majority of people who are mad about this casting decision are DC fans and dude-bros who only associate Robert Pattinson ...

LOL: ‘Family Guy’ Honors Adam West with a Tribute Video and Overdue Change to Quahog

It’s been nearly two years since Adam West passed away. The actor became famous for playing Batman on TV and the big screen in the 1960s, but in recent years, he may have been better known for playing a wacky version of himself as the mayor of the Rhode Island city of Quahog on the FOX animated series Family Guy. The writers and crew of the show created by Seth MacFarlane already paid tribute to Adam West shortly after his death, but they wanted to honor him on the show in another way. Watch th...

The ‘Gotham’ Series Finale Trailer is Absolutely Batsh*t

After five long, wacky years, Gotham is ending. And with its bombastic upcoming series finale, we will see the beginning of Batman and the end of the weird, wild madness that is the Jim Gordon-centric Fox series. A show that was meant to be a serious, crime procedural take on the Caped Crusader, Gotham ended up becoming the most ludicrous of all the Batman screen adaptations, and that’s saying something when you have Adam West fighting sharks with…bat shark repellant. But there’s something admi...

Who is the one true Batman? That answer and more as the Caped Crusader turns 80 at WonderCon

Jim Lee was 5 years old when his family moved to the United States in the ’60s. Though he didn’t read English, Lee understood what Batman was all about. “You could tell what was going on just from the pictures themselves,” says Lee, the co-publisher and chief creative officer for DC, which has been Batman’s home since his debut in 1939. Film producer Michael E. Uslan vividly remembers his own childhood encounter with Batman. He and his big brother had 50 cents, enough to buy five comic books in ...

The 10 Most Iconic Movie Cars

The 10 Most Iconic Movie Cars Many people live vicariously through movies. It always helps when audience members have something to relate to, whether it be a character, situation, or time period. Pretty much anyone can relate to the feeling of being behind the wheel of a car, hearing the engine roar and cruising down a two-lane blacktop. While some folks merely use cars as tools to get around, others consider cars a passion. It’s the same for filmmakers. Many treat the vehicles in their films...

“Automation Divine”: Early Computer Music and the Selling of the Cold War

It was a love song—not what viewers expected, perhaps, who tuned into a July 1956 episode of Adventure Tomorrow, a science documentary program broadcast by KCOP, channel 13, out of Los Angeles. But, then again, it was a love song to a computer. Push-Button Bertha. Sweet machine. What a queen. Jack Owens, the lyricist (and, on that July 1956 episode, the performer), had taken his inspiration from the tune’s composer: a Datatron 205, the room-filling flagship computer of Pasadena-based ElectroData...

When Andy Warhol Made a Batman Superhero Movie (1964)

Each of us has a favorite Batman movie. My own allegiance still lies with the one Tim Burton directed in 1989, a prototype of the modern dark superhero blockbuster in which Jack Nicholson made quite an impact as the Joker. But Heath Ledger made an even bigger one in The Dark Knight, an especially beloved entry in Christopher Nolan's acclaimed Batman pictures of the 21st century. These days, with enough distance, some even admit to enjoying Joel Schumacher's ultra-campy takes on Batman fr...

Nicolas Cage’s Spider-Man Performance in ‘Into the Spider-Verse’ is Based on Humphrey Bogart

Nicolas Cage is playing one of several Spider-Men (and women, and robots, and pigs) in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. When it came to approaching the role of Spider-Man Noir, Cage drew on some surprising inspirations: Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney and Edward G. Robinson. In other words, get ready to hear Nicolas Cage doing a old-fashioned gangster voice, everyone. In an attempt to give Tom Hardy a run for his money in the goofy voice department, Nicolas Cage tells EW that he drew on clas...
