Batman: The Dark Knight Returns animated movie

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Deluxe Edition

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Deluxe Edition - Amazon Video

FEATURING PARTS 1 AND 2 OF “BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS” SAGA! From the chronicles of the DC Universe comes the sweeping saga of rebirth, revenge and redemption.

Speaking of Batman, you should really watch this if you haven’t already. The adaptation is quite good and the graphic novel changed comics as we know them.

I only wish that I hadn’t let my original 1986 issue fall into such despair. 😢

So Bill Kane wasn’t the only creator of Batman

Bill Finger Finally Gets A Credit For The First Batman Comic

What makes this issue really significant, however, is that to my knowledge, it’s the first time Batman’s co-creator, Bill Finger, has received a cover credit for the original Batman story.

Finger is, of course, the writer of the earliest Batman comics, whose contributions to the creation of the Dark Knight include the costume and color scheme, the origin story, the lack of superpowers, the words “Batmobile” and “Gotham City,” Robin, the Joker, and numerous other elements. Unfortunately, due to some legal trickery by his collaborator and actual supervillain Bob Kane, Finger’s never been officially identified with a “Batman created by” credit in any published works or films or other Batman media.

Somehow I missed this in my internet travels of 2014.

I had always believed that Kane was the sole force behind Batman. Okay, so maybe Batman was his initial idea but the “created by” part is misleading. Much of what makes Batman who he is is his story, his parents being shot, him being a vigilante and so on. Those things fall into the creation bucket as far as I’m concerned.

Bob Kane was one of my heroes and this took him down a few notches in my book.

Funny how everyone is human after all.

The Killing Joke Is Officially Batman's First R-Rated Film

The Killing Joke Is Officially Batman’s First R-Rated Film

To downplay the emotional impact of DC Universe Animated Original Movies simply because they’re animated would be an egregious mistake. For years, DC has been making animated films that have resonated with fans, and oftentimes these adaptations are far better — and more faithful to the source material — than their live-action counterparts. Batman: The Killing Joke will be no exception.

The DC Original Movie franchise’s latest animated film, Batman: The Killing Joke, will truly be its darkest project yet, and it has the official MPAA rating to prove it. According to EW, the direct-to-video animated film based on the divisive Alan Moore comic has been given an R rating. The Killing Joke marks the first film in the DC Universe Original Movie franchise to be rated R — and the second Batman movie to do so, after the extended home-release of Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice later this year.

Batmobile hidden under the Falcon?

tcr! · Sep 18, 2014 at 6:25 pm

Millennium Falcon revealed in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ with a Batmobile on board

Finally, the Star Wars footage you’ve been waiting for… or maybe not. Episode VII director J.J. Abrams is giving fans a huge tease of the return of the Millennium Falcon, but all isn’t exactly as it appears. The clip is actually a surprising mashup of Star Wars and Batman. Zack Snyder, who’s directing Batman v. Superman, has been mashing up the two films on Twitter for a few months now, and now Abrams’ production company is finally responding with an elaborate mashup of its own. Let’s just say that what follows is one of the last things we’d expect to see on the underside of the Falcon.

Astounding collection of lost Dark Knight promo images show every detail of The Joker

Astounding collection of lost Dark Knight promo images show every detail of The Joker

We are bowled over with the amazing detail in this collection of forgotten Dark Knight promo shots. Specifically these gorgeous images of The Joker — the detail on Heath Ledger’s costume, face, gloves, it’s beautiful. There’s even remnants of white face paint on his coat, and the orange lining inside it’s all amazing.

I miss that Keith.
