It’s Tuesday New release Day! Well, the shopping season has begun and I’d assume the DVD companies would be hard at work trying to get your money with tons of new releases, but again, a small week of new things. Hope you find the one thing you’re looking for, either for yourself or as a gift.
New Releases: Tuesday December 3rd
It’s Christmas Eve, and Gotham City’s underworld kingpin Black Mask has put out a hit on the man known as “Batman”. Many doubt the existence of such a person, in fact, many believe the Batman is just an urban legend. But the real players of Gotham’s underworld know the truth. Batman is not a myth, he is real, and he is coming for them.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the third installment in the Batman: Arkham Trilogy is here! This time, however, the series’ veteran development team, Rocksteady, is not involved with this game. Instead, Warner Brother’s Montreal is handling it. WB Montreal is a brand new studio that’s been handed the mantel of Batman, but did they succeed? Did they fail? Read on and find out!
One of a geek’s greatest fears is being bored (it’s why we have such wonderful toys.) Podcasters hate it too, so even though we had no idea what we were going to talk about this week, we forged ahead and tried to make things interesting. And got even more goofy than usual while doing it.
Join our heroes and heroine as they ditch the format and ramble all over the place. Sure, they manage to discuss Ben Affleck as the Batman, Xbox’s upcoming games, and Guardians of the Galaxy. But they also talk about Fantasy Shark Leagues, badass spiders, fiery bees, and whether or not you can be surprised by a cannonball.
Maybe they haven’t quite recovered from Comic-Con yet, but the podcast crew is really grumpy today. Anthony’s glaring at everybody, Andrew’s bringing up forbidden topics, and Elizabeth’s just plain starting trouble. It’s a battle of wills, a clash of Titans! Or maybe that’s just the Batman vs. Superman movie.
Join our rage-filled heroes and heroine as they argue, rant, and still manage to laugh while speculating about the upcoming DC movies and what we could expect from a Flash or Wonder Woman film. Along the way they also discuss Comic-Con food, proper footwear, and how to escape a recording studio before someone flips a table.
There have been some rumors lately about what’s going to happen to Damian Wayne, the current Robin. His absence from the upcoming issues of Batman & Robin, Batman, Inc., and other Bat-titles have had fans speculating something sinister in the works. Those suspicions can be laid to rest now, as DC Comics has made an official statement through the NY Post as to Damian Wayne’s fate.
**Warning Spoilers Ahead**
I had high hopes for Tracy Hickman’s Wayne of Gotham, but it never grabbed my attention. When I look at everything I was reading, or watching while I was trying to read this book, I don’t think it ever had a chance.
The Internet is just full of rumors, but hopefully with a little roundup we can weed through them. This past week we got a rumor actually confirmed while a couple of others sprouted up. Sit back and relax as I guide through this week’s Rumor Roundup.
I missed a lot from comics in the 80′s and early 90’s. That’s why I decided to go back to the classics. I’ll be writing a series of articles/reviews of classic comics and movies that I have never seen before. I’ll be looking to see if they “Hold up” to the hype that they’ve accumulated over the years.
I’m starting with the seminal bat-book that helped mold Batman into the dark brooding hero that we know and love, The Dark Knight Returns.
DC Animation has released the trailer to the second and final installment of The Dark Knight Returns, and just as we expected, things are getting explosive!
Luckily for us, that’s not all that’s happening at DC Premiere. Released on the same day was the trailer to LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Superheroes Unite, a movie adaptation of the hugely popular LEGO Batman 2 game. The combination of the two trailers have got Bat-Fans young and old as well as young at heart all excited for something.
You’d think that would be good enough, but it must be Christmas because DC Premiere also announced other animated films planned for release this year.
