Dark Knight Returns: Introducing Alfred

With less a week left until the film comes out on BluRay and DVD, Warner Bros. and DC has released another clip from the upcoming release of The Dark Knight Returns.  In the same fashion that each previous clip (here & here) has had this clip is low on action, but still interesting to watch.  Each clip has revealed some small aspect of this very different Gotham than we’re used to.

You may recognize Alfred as Radio Hall of Fame commentator and talk show host Michael Jackson.  Jackson previously provided the voice of the esteemed Guardian, Ganthet for the GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD KNIGHTS.

The Dark Knight Returns Presents: The Mutants

Hot off the heels of the last clip released for the quickly-approaching Dark Knight Returns animated movie, we are again graced with more teases. Although the new clip lacks a certain “Bat” element, it offers a great look at Part 1’s protagonist, the Mutant Leader – and it greatly improves over its lackluster predecessor.

Oh, September 25, why must you take your time to get here?

SDCC 2012 – Teen Titans Go!

In 2003, Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans animated series debuted, and for five years the tales of young heroes on the verge of becoming the next generation of super heroes built a strong and faithful following.  The series blended heroic stories with the comedy of most children’s programing, but in 2008 the series was canceled and Robin, Beast Boy, Raven, Starfire, and Cyborg disappeared from television.

That is, until in 2012 a new version was revised and shorts were added to Cartoon Network’s new DC Nation block of programing.  Now on the backs of their re-found popularity the Teen Titans are getting a second chance in the new series Teen Titans GO!

This year at San Diego Comic-Con I got the chance to speak with Michael Jelenic (Brave and the Bold) and Aaron Horvath (Mad) about the upcoming revival of Teen Titans and what we can expect from the old gang this time around.

Movie Issues Review: The Dark Knight Rises

Movie Issues Review: The Dark Knight Rises

Starting with 2005’s Batman Begins, Christopher Nolan gave the world a new-and-improved Batman. Gone were the familiar flashy comic book stereotypes, replaced by a dark, gritty hero of today’s world in a realistic noir vibe. Batman Begins captured the imagination of comic fans and proved Batman could be more than what he had (d)evolved into in prior cinema efforts.

Following that film was Nolan’s The Dark Knight, where Batman once again proved himself king of the comic book heroes alongside a new and more twisted Joker than ever before.  Now the third and final installment in Nolan’s Batman trilogy has come to an end with The Dark Knight Rises, and what an end it is!

The film is nothing but brilliant from start to finish. It ends an amazing film series with a bang that will be talked about for years to come by film and comic fans alike.

Weekly Geek Question

Welcome back, my friends, to Weekly Geek Question, a little article making sure you are not missing out on what is happening in the Comic Issues Community.

This week it’s raining men in comics as talk of Northstar marrying his boyfriend has been a buzz seconded only by DC’s mysterious new legacy gay character.  *Spoiler Alert* It’s Alan Scott, but then again, he isn’t as popular as DC may think he is.

What is popular right now is the trailer for DC’s new Injustice: Gods Among Us, a fighting game featuring 28 of DC’s biggest characters. Just last Thurday Gamespot.com released the teaser trailer for the newest fighting game to come out of NetherRealm, the makers of Mortal Kombat.  Although we’ve seen DC and MK team up before, we’ve never seen DC character go at it like this; so we’ve asked our community:
