DKN Picks The Top 5 ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ Episodes

DKN Picks The Top 5 ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ Episodes

When it comes to adapting Batman to media outside of comics, few efforts have been more successful than or as widely beloved as Batman: The Animated Series. To this day it remains THE definitive interpretation of Batman and his world in the eyes of many fans and understandably so. It was a dark, serious noir series that managed to appeal to viewers of all ages. Whether it was the creation of new…

This weekend is the mecca of all geeks and nerds alike, San Diego Comic-Con. We’re getting spoiled this year when it comes to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but let us not forget that there’s some other fantastic Batman-related stuff we can be talking about. Mattel, the famous toy manufacturer, had their booth ready to showcase their upcoming toys.

At that booth was, of course, their DC Comics display featuring tons of little goodies. ToyArk managed to snap nearly 100 photos, but the one that stands out most to me is the Red Hood from the upcoming Rocksteady Arkham swan song, Batman: Arkham Knight. It was just revealed last week that Red Hood will be in the game, but the featured image had the vigilante’s head bent over, obscured by his actual red hood. I was questioning whether or not he would have his red helmet. The picture is telling us that he does.

I’m not particularly pleased with the design of him thus far as I’ve always preferred the helmet to have eye holes and more detail than two bolts at the corners of what would be his mouth, but I have faith that Rocksteady will NOT let me down. As noted by Eric Joseph, it does tell us that Jason Todd is likely not the Arkham Knight. The plot thickens.

Otherwise, there’s a lot of cool other toys to peruse through, ToyArk is also listing that Mr. Freeze is in Arkham Knight, so that’s very interesting. Also, looks like we’re getting also getting a look at the the Batman Unlimited toy collection as well as some 1966 Batman gems as well.

Enjoy!

Mattel’s SDCC DC Comics Toy Display: Better Look at Red Hood in ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ This weekend is the mecca of all geeks and nerds alike, San Diego Comic-Con. We’re getting spoiled this year when it comes to…

'Arrow' Season 3 Trailer Reveals Ra's al Ghul!

‘Arrow’ Season 3 Trailer Reveals Ra’s al Ghul!

He’s been hinted at in Season 1 and was named dropped in Season 2. You figured with the League of Assassins and his daughter Nyssa showing up, Ra’s al Ghul would eventually appear on Arrow. Thanks to this new trailer, we now know that he is indeed the big bad for Season 3.

The trailer itself may seem familiar to those who saw one yesterday, but do stick around because the Demon’s Head himself…

Last night, Zack Snyder appeared in Hall H and revealed the first official footage of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of the Justice, along with it, the first official photo of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Based on the cam videos surfacing, the fan reaction was wild. Did I mention there are cam videos? That means that we’re getting leaks surfacing all over the Internet of that wonderful, wonderful teaser. Check it out above.

Need a closer look, here’s a better angle:

First off, I’m sure you all noticed the suit. The armored Batsuit. I don’t believe anybody can deny that that is the suit from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Falls, during that final epic battle against the Man of Steel. Seeing it in a live-action capacity is mind-blowing. It obviously tells us that there’s more than one Batsuit, but could there be more than just the two? Second, the glowing white eyes! The glowing white eyes to match Supes’ glaring laser vision. Never in my most wildest dreams did I think that they would ever go with the glowing white eyes that’s graced Batman: The Animated Series and many other comic book panels. In fact, I just a finished a conversation with a friend, completely dismissing any possibility of glowing white eyes, deeming it completely impractical in the cinematic sense. I was wrong. And third, the style. This flick, similar to Snyder’s previous flicks (300, Watchmen, Sucker Punch), looks like it’s going to be highly stylized to the point where most frames will be heavily edited and I can dig that.

I’ve been a relatively big proponent of the flick, while I was always optimistically neutral about Batfleck. Naysayers have not deterred me and I’ve even lectured some when they would present misinformation regarding the flick to support their claims of why it would be bad. Hopefully, this teaser will silence them. More than anything, I just want to see the Trinity live-action on-screen and we’re actually getting in the very capable hands of Zack Snyder.

After the teaser premiered, Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill were brought on-stage followed by Gal Gadot. Chris Hardwick made sure to snap this picture to commemorate this event.

After we discovered it online, I’ve since watched it at least 10 times. By the fourth time, I almost started sobbing. I don’t believe I’ve ever anticipated a live-action tentpole this much.  I must remain calm, the flick is still filming and still a long ways down the road. We should all be expecting it May 6, 2016.

Until then, here’s some screen shots to tie you over:

With all the buzz surrounding Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice today, let’s not forget about Gotham. WB probably felt that they would be remiss not to put out a new trailer at San Diego Comic Con. Luckily for us that didn’t attend the screening of the premiere, we get to see some fresh footage.
