Batgirl Star Leslie Grace Reveals First Look At Her Costume

Despite being introduced into the "Batman" comic book series all the way back in 1967 (technically 1961, but I'm talking Barbara Gordon here), Batgirl is finally making her way into the live-action DC Extended Universe, with Leslie Grace set to play the iconic character in an exclusive film for HBO Max. Not to be confused with Batwoman, the Batgirl character has appeared in multiple animated series and "The Lego Batman Movie," but this is our first bonafide chance to see a live-action Batgirl si...

It's the Bat-Family's world, and we're just living in it.

The 90s Cult Classic Brendan Fraser Missed Out On, But Would Have Been Perfect For

Brendan Fraser is a cherished actor whose resume consists of iconic films from the '90s and early 2000's. After his heartbreaking retreat from the spotlight, he's now on the verge of a cinematic comeback — and we're all cheering him on. Many of us know Fraser from eccentric comedies like "Blast From the Past", "Encino Man", "Airheads" (my personal favorite, seen above), "The Mummy" franchise, and "Bedazzled". He's mostly known for playing characters that are fish-out-of-water types immersed into...

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...

Michael Keaton Confirmed To Join The Cast Of Batgirl

Everything We Know About Batgirl So Far

It's hard to believe in light of the character's immense popularity over the years, but Batgirl has yet to make the leap from her comic book origins, small screen iterations, and even video game appearances to DC Universe feature films just yet ... in terms of live action, that is. At the very least, "The Lego Batman Movie" managed to do the character some modicum of justice!

Batman Movies Ranked From Worst To Best

Batman is one of the oldest superheroes depicted in the media, having first appeared in the pages of "Detective Comics" in 1939. Along with Superman and Wonder Woman, he's considered part of DC Comics' "Holy Trinity"; really, there's no bigger superhero in pop culture. While the character started out as a comic book character, he's made his way into live-action a number of times. Two low-budget serials screened in the '40s, while ABC's campy "Batman" series followed in 1966. The show ran for onl...

14 Sequels That Truly Didn't Need To Happen

As Benjamin Franklin might have said, if he had witnessed the rise and continued growth of modern cinema, "Nothing is certain but death and taxes. And that most movies, if they make a reasonable profit, will get sequels whether they need one or not."Anachronistic Ben Franklin has it spot on. Hefty profits can magically transform the most standalone and self-contained movies into a trilogy, tetralogy, or worse. We have proof. Some of the films on this list are completely unnecessary -- they were ...
