Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a real eye opener for a lot of people. We published a few posts about how vast the disparity was between critics’ opinions and fans’ opinions on the movie, and we subsequently received a flood of emails from people telling us how much they loved the movie and how little they value the opinions of critics.
But even among people who loved Batman v Superman, not everyone enjoyed Ben Affleck’s portrayal of the caped crusader.
Well, we’ve got good news and bad news: the good news is that there’s a brand new R-rated Batman movie coming out later this year, and Ben Affleck won’t star as the Bat. The bad news is that no one will really star as Batman in this new film, because it’s animated. More →
Ben Affleck isn’t done playing the Caped Crusader in Warner Bros’ DC Comics saga. The actor already appeared in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and will also star in two Justice League movies in the coming years. But the studio just confirmed that not only is a standalone Batman is in the works with Affleck as the famous bat, but the popular actor will also direct the movie. More →
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been getting raked over the coals by critics ever since it hit theaters. Reviewers say the plot doesn’t make sense, the characters have no motivation and the tone is so dark that kids can’t even see it.
If there’s anything that has received consistent praise from fans and critics alike, it’s Ben Affleck’s performance as Batman. If you liked what you saw out of Affleck, you’re in luck — he’s written his own Batman movie. More →
As of this morning, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is sitting at a depressing 30% on Rotten Tomatoes. There are plenty of comic book fans that enjoy seeing a darker take on DC’s most popular heroes, but the movie clearly isn’t striking a chord with the audience the way Warner Bros. expected it to.
Sadly, it’s too late to go back and edit the movie, but one minor change might have made all the difference in the world: Replace Superman with Donald Trump.
As reviews continue to roll in for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Rotten Tomatoes average continues to plummet.

Comic book fans have a busy year ahead as more adventures from the Marvel and the DC Comics universes await. Suicide Squad and Batman v. Superman are just two of the highly anticipated superhero action titles hitting the big screen in 2016, but forget them for a second, because there’s an even hotter rumor in the movie world.
It appears that Will Smith will bring his Deadshot character from Suicide Squad to a new standalone Batman movie starring Ben Affleck, who’s also expected to direct. More →
Readers… some things in life just aren’t fair. Case in point: some obnoxiously wealthy guy in Australia has a Batcave and you don’t.
Australian architectural firm Molecule recently posted about a special undertaking it completed not long ago. The firm’s client, who was not named in the post, asked it to reproduce Bruce Wayne’s underground garage from The Dark Knight series under his own home, while ensuring that the work avoided disturbing his home’s “heritage quality and evident beauty.”

In order to compete with the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, DC is hosting an explosive event of its own next year by pitting two heroes against each other in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This is the film that will open up DC’s own movie universe, but going forward, Batman may play an even larger role than we’d previously assumed. More →
Suicide Squad is another movie comic book fans should have on their list for next year. Supposed to launch in August 2016, the film brings together a band of villains from various DC titles, including Batman’s most popular bad guy, the Joker. A trailer has yet to be released for the movie, so we’re yet to see how any of the villains in it look like. But as CNET reports, we now get to at least look at Jared Leto in character. More →
One of the best things about the Batman Arkham series is the option to play as characters other than Batman himself. In Arkham Asylum, the Joker was playable in a limited capacity for a few downloadable challenge maps, but Rocksteady Studios took the concept a step further in Arkham City by letting the player control Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing.
