The Joker origin movie is going to be totally dark and real

One of the best parts of Heath Ledger's joker was that we had no idea where he came from. He routinely made up origin stories in both a fantastic way to define the character as un-moored chaos, but also a commentary on how overblown we are ...

Justice League actually looks pretty good in its SDCC trailer

Justice League is in the middle of a huge mess right now. DC Comics and Warner Bros. are tooling and re-tooling elements, Ben Affleck was almost phased out of the Batman role (before confirming he'd be staying on), and the film's current ad...

Review: The Lego Batman Movie

The Lego Movie was my favorite animated film of 2014. It felt fresh, had a story and jokes fit for both children and their parents, and even managed to deliver a heartfelt message at the end. The big standout was Will Arnett as Batman, a se...

Newest Justice League photo shows off the team

Did anyone else forget Justice League was coming out this year? I totally did. 2016 was such a weird year, it feels like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was released forever ago. But as teased in both BvS, Suicide Squad and most likely W...

Flash armor is the worst in new Justice League image

Does anyone like the Flash's armor costume in the new Justice League movie? This is new image for EW is probably the best look we've got of it not in motion and it just looks terrible. Like all design and no substance. If he needs armor why...

Johns: 'Justice League' will address 'BvS' criticisms

By all accounts, Warner Bros.' DC Extended Universe, now three movies in, has struggled to find the same kind of critical footing as Marvel Studios' Cinematic Universe. Since its debut in 2012's Man of Steel, DC flicks have been roundly sla...

DC Entertainment unveils bland brand-new comics and film logo

DC Comics unveiled a brand new logo to coincide with big Rebirth event this summer, which pretty much looks like a mea culpa for that New 52 stuff from a few years ago. The comic is an 80-page one-shot written by Geoff Johns that will kick ...

Ben Affleck directing, starring in solo Batman film

It was easy to poke fun at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for our April Fool's Day shenanigans this year, given its divisive nature across the internet. While the jokes increased in wackiness as the day went on, it started from a r...
