CW Presents Gotham [April Fools!]

CW Presents Gotham [April Fools!]

UPDATE: This is an April Fools Joke. Sorry! =D

With the long term success of the Smallville television series WB and DC Comics have decided to venture forth into Gotham. A series that depicts the Dark Knight in his early teenage years.

It’s kinda a Young Indiana Jones meets Smallville

Auditions are currently being held. Though it was revealed that James Vanderbeek is the top candidate after John Krasinski turned down the role in favor of playing Captain America.

Potential storylines have been discussed including one in which Bruce Wayne meets medical student Harleen Quinzel. It seems a love interest begins to form, until his arch rival Jay Ker steps in to pull the ultimate prank.

Filming is to begin later this year. No word yet though on what city will be chosen to depict Gotham City. Though rumor has it San Diego is being considered. Some have claimed that San Diego is too small and shooting should be moved to Anaheim.

Nolan to Serve as Mentor on New Superman Film

Nolan to Serve as Mentor on New Superman Film

Whatever happened to the Man of Tomorrow? It’s been a good couple of years since we’ve seen mention of a Superman feature film, especially after the ill-fated Superman Returns, aside from animated films like Superman: Doomsday. But it seems that Warner Bros. is already prepping the third iteration of the Superman movie franchise.

Enter Christopher Nolan, the writer/director who not only took on the Batman movie franchise after Joel Schumacher made a mockery of the Dark Knight in the mid-90’s, but rebooted and reinvigorated the franchise, giving it a darker, edgier feel that proved popular among fans and critics alike. So, with Warner Bros. deciding reboot the Superman franchise and begin anew, it’s seems like Nolan is being brought into the mix to share some of his expertise in superhero drama.

But worry not, Batman fans. Nolan isn’t attached to direct, in fact he’s hard at work penning a script for a Dark Knight sequel. Instead, Nolan is being brought aboard to serve as a sort of mentor or godfather to the Superman franchise, someone to help aid and steer the Man of Steel in the right direction. And who better? After all, Nolan has proven he knows what he’s doing with two highly successful Batman films, and I think a serious, darker Superman movie would do the character justice.

Green Lantern First Flight – Blu Ray Review

Posted by: |

Always been a bit of a Green Lantern fan for a long time. With the recent Rebirth from DC Comics thanks to the talent of Geoff Johns I’ve been hoping that eventually we might see a “quality movie” of the Green Lantern. With the recent news of Van Wilder as a Green Lantern I wasn’t sure if “quality” is what we are going to get. Lucky for me there was a Animated outlet for my Green Lantern Movie Taste.

I’ve seen many iterations of the Green Lantern in an Animated Form. This film however takes the WB animation to a new level. With character designs that I felt really fit each character. The quality of the animation is also top notch, which is something that I largely expect after seeing Wonder Women Animated Movie. The story is also top notch, lending itself for those who aren’t familiar with the Green Lantern while still impressing those that are fans. As for the Blu Ray side of things the movie looked great. Artwork popped and the colors were vibrant. The only downside to the Blu Ray was the Digital Download. This time around they are only supporting Windows Media Player so Itunes fans your screwed. The plus side though the extra features were awesome. With over 4 hrs of Extras. My personal favorite was the extra episodes of Justice League Unlimited feature the Lantern Corps along with the Duck Dodgers Green Lantoon episode.

Overall this is a solid movie and would recommend it to any Green Lantern Fan or newcomers alike. The Blu Ray really shows the quality of animation with it’s amazing colors and visuals while packing a nice 4hrs of extra features.
