Batman – Assault On Arkham

The film is set in the universe of the Batman: Arkham video game franchise, and occurs after the events of Batman: Arkham Origins. The story focuses primarily on theSuicide Squad, particularly Batman villains Deadshot and Harley Quinn, with Batman in a supporting role. In the film, a Suicide Squad of six criminals is dispatched byAmanda Waller to break into Arkham Asylum, where they must contend with the asylum’s inmates and Batman as they attempt to complete their mission.

This is by THE best direct to video made by DC Comics, or any other company for that matter. There are a lot of DTVs made and the creators get to have a good amount of experimentation in style and the quality of the animation itself varies drastically, but DC Comics is usually on top of their game with their Direct to Video Movies. For once they didn’t stick to your typical storyline, and the bad guys played a much deeper role then just Batman himself, the Suicide Squad had a colorful array of characters who carried the movie in a more comic book style then seen before, and that made it that much better. The combination of action, artstyle, humor, wit, voices, and characters took this movie to another level, now DC has set the bar so high it’s going to be hard to beat this movie. One thing to keep in mind this movie is not for kids, and I will leave it at that.

 

 

Justice League War – Trailer

The world’s finest heroes found the Justice League in order to stop an alien invasion of Earth.

Another Movie from DC Comics which looks dark and fun, this time around Apokolips attacks earth and this Justice League is based on the new “52” comics which I am loving. Lets see how this movie will turn out, its going to be released in early 2014, I hope DC Comics keeps this animated movies coming I am enjoying them very much.

Batman & Superman – Ben Afleck.. Really?

Batman&Superman

Batman under Christoper Nolan & Christian Bale became an epic story of Batman, the true Dark Knight. It reached beyond the comic fans and across the globe, there is no one that didn’t love Batman over the past 8 years. Zach Snyder’s Superman was also a deep Superman movie, and I really like how he was portrayed in it by Henry Cavill. So the up coming mash up of Batman & Superman was extremely exciting news, and I was hoping Christian Bale would reprise his role as Batman, as I can’t picture anyone else doing it.

Now the shocking news that Ben Afleck is going to be the next Batman is nothing short of revolting, I got a gag reflex when I heard it, on the verge of throwing up from my disgust of him. He is an actor of his own right but NOT a superhero, doesn’t anyone remember Daredevil? I love comic movies and this I tried to love but to no avail, I was just utterly disappointed by it. I just really hope most of us comic fans are proved wrong and Ben Afleck does right by The Dark Knight.

The Dark Knight’s Tumbler is Here!!!

BatmanTumbler1

If you have $1.6 Million to spare then this is what you should do it, build your own Tumbler. A machine like no other, who wouldn’t be intimidated with this machine in its rear view mirror. I wonder how people would react to it on the streets. I’m assuming that this machine wouldn’t be built proof like Batman’s but it would still be a machine to be afraid of. This bueatiful creation is built by Team Galag, their name is hilarious, and surprisingly it is street legal.

BatmanTumbler2

The DC Comics inspired machine is packed with a 6.2 liter V8 engine, and can hit a top speed of 100 miles per hour. And this machine is going to be driven by one lucky guy in Copenhagen for Gumball. Now that is an exotic machine, the Hoosiers are probably the only tires that fit this machine. Now the only thing left is to get the Bat Cave to fill with the rest of Batman’s machines.

DC Nation: Bat Man Of Shanghai

Produced by Chinese animation studio Wolf Smoke (also responsible for the awesome and NSFW Kung Fu Cooking Girls), this three part adventure transports Catwoman, Bane and the Caped Crusader himself back to Shanghai in 1930 for an all-out battle of thievery and mystical kung fu, and if you haven’t seen it, you’re in luck.

DC Nation Shorts are pretty cool and they came up with this, I think it would look pretty good as a full animation not just a short. I love how they brought Batman to the 1930s, and to watch these youtube shorts start from top to bottom to develop the story the right way.

Batman – 1989 Batmobile

There is no arguing how iconic the original Tim Burton-era Batman was, and what the Batmobile meant to us back then. And this was revived with Christoper Nolan’s interpretation of Batman turning him into the dark and gritty super hero that he is. The new Batmobile is a monster machine indeed but there is no denying the beauty of the Michael Keaton’s machine. And this one is developed by Side Show Collectibles with the utmost details.

At 39 inches it’s well over three feet long (Approximately 1 meter), making the collectible a 1/6th-scale version of the original. And at that size there’s plenty of room to pack in the details like working lighting, a dashboard full of miniature instruments and dials, removable machine guns, and even the cocoon armor that everyone wishes their car had. I honestly couldn’t resist it and placed the a preorder on it through AlterEgoComics since they are a fantastic company to deal with for all types of Collectibles and Models. Now I just have to wait until 2013 to find a place for this lovely machine.

Review: Justice League – Doom

Vandal Savage steals confidential files Batman has compiled on the members of the Justice League, and learns all their weaknesses.

Short and Sweet, another DC Movie with the Justice League facing another formidable enemy. This time around the Justice League face several foes separating them and neutralizing them. The animation is decent and story gets interesting, I wanted it to get deeper to give it that more depth but it was entertaining and for a short movie it was entertaining, if you are fan of DC Comics or animation that you will enjoy this movie.
