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...

Black Lightning Has Been Slowly But Surely Putting Together DC's Outsiders

Even before the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths, Black Lightning’s third season was quickly transforming the city of Freeland into ground zero for a conflict with the nation of Markovia.

The Team Behind Gotham's New Fairy Tale Anthology Tells Us Why Damian Wayne Is the Perfect Pinocchio

Being raised from birth as a lethal assassin by your mom’s cabal of sinister killers and having Batman as your dad is enough for any kid to handle. But in DC’s latest young adult graphic novel, Damian Wayne imagines a new life for himself: the starring role in his very own retelling of Pinocchio. Read more...

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. It was an opportunity that, for its stars, meant a chance to…Read more...

Batman's Latest Scribe on Telling New Stories With One of DC's Oldest Heroes

There are more comics for more people than ever before, but for better or worse, the mainstays aren’t going anywhere. Best known for his work on Batman over at DC Comics, James Tynion IV is very cognizant of how the cycle of comics operates. He knows there’s an art to telling stories that have already been told, and …Read more...

Birds of Prey's Sue Kroll on Why DC Moved to Standalone Movies, and the Vital Role of Margot Robbie

After years of attempting to chase after the successes of Marvel Studios with an all-in, all-connected cinematic universe, at this point it seems Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are willing to admit the rush to an interconnected movie slate was not its particular strength. But in acknowledging that, the studio has…Read more...

The Cast and Crew of Birds of Prey on Prepping for the Film's Intense, Zany Action

There’s a lot of fun to be had in Birds of Prey, but one of its stand-out highlights is its approach to action. How did the stars feel bringing a sense of brutal grace to Harley and the team’s fight against Roman Sionis? “It’s just bad ass,” Rosie Perez told us. “I mean, really, it’s just bad ass!”Read more...

Forget Superbabies, Superman & Lois Will Feature Superteens Instead

Sorry if you were looking forward to seeing superpowered baby-raising shenanigans on the CW’s upcoming Superman & Lois spin-off series. The network just announced who’ll be playing the sons of Superman and Lois Lane, and it looks like the show will be leaning into teen drama instead. Well, it is the CW. What did you…Read more...

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. It’s really not even particularly a comic book superhero movie, outside of the fact that it stars comic characters. Hell, depending on your point of view, whether or not it’s a Birds of Prey movie might be an argument. But…Read more...

How Birds of Prey Stands Out in DC's Post-Wonder Woman World

Margot Robbie has been hoping to get a movie like Birds of Prey on screen for years—and this Friday, that dream will finally be achieved.

Why the Birds of Prey Are Finally Taking Flight

DC Entertainment is about to achieve something that Marvel Studios hasn’t. When Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) opens on February 7, it will be the first comic book movie starring an all-female superteam. And assuming the CW picks up the Arrow spinoff and Birds of Prey-inspired …Read more...

The Final Scene of Arrow Came to Its Producer...Mid-Meditation

There’s something very DC/CW-niverse-y about the idea that Arrow—the show that started it all as a grounded and (occasionally) self-serious comic book adaptation—got the inspiration for its very last scene from someone who was mid-tranquil-state. You could almost say it appeared as a vision.Read more...

Crisis on Infinite Earths Was Already Wrapped Before Its Biggest Surprise Happened

The CW’s DC crossovers are always filled with fun, and often incredibly absurd surprises. They are, after all, about a smorgasbord of attractive actors in various heaps of pleather punching extradimensional beings, aliens, nazis, and sometimes even extradimensional alien nazis. But Crisis on Infinite Earths perhaps…Read more...

Todd Philips Thinks It’s Joker’s Themes, Not the Character, That Made It a Hit

One of the most mindbogglingly strange things about Todd Phillips’ Joker is how unfunny the movie’s titular clown criminal is, something that’s in rather stark contrast with the character’s depiction in other media. The Joker’s a deranged mass murderer, yes, but he’s always been able to crack a legitimate joke here…Read more...
