What if Batman was all in Bruce Wayne’s mind? Have you ever watched those movies with the twist at the end where you find out the the main protagonist is only imagining the whole thing? Many movies does justice to this theme and they do it well. Movies like Vanilla Sky (Tom Cruise) is one great example of a spectacular twist at the end. As long as we forget the waste of time that was “LOST” then we will be ok,
Uploaded to Youtube back in Apr 2011 is a fan made video titled Batman Complex that mashes Batman Begins with Dicaprio’s Inception and Christian Bale’s previous films and shows what could be a great concept to twist the Batman mythology. The trailer shows Bruce Wayne loosing his mind and Leonardo Dicaprio using his inception skills to add the Batman icon into Bruce’s psyche. Bruce Wayne struggles to identify what is real and what is not in a world that he believes he is a Rich Billionaire or a crime fighting vigilante. This has Martin Scorsese written all over it.
Batman Complex: My Thoughts
This is one of the best film mash ups that I have ever seen. The use of different movie clips was done very well to illustrate scenarios that otherwise would be impossible to achieve. Using clips from Inception gives Bane ( Tom Hardy) a great way of being seen in both movie titles. If we are talking in the what ifs, then what if before Bane was Bane, he was a member of Dicaprio’s inception team? Joseph Gordon Levitt is also a part of both movie titles so what kinda character would he played if the 2 worlds collide? Alfred Pennyworth plays Bruce’s trusty butler that is Wayne’s only tie to reality and Joker (Ledger) is the villain that poisons the mind of Bruce. My favorite scene is when Dicaprio was asked ‘ can this be done?’ by Levitt, Dicaprio replies ‘yes it can. I’ve done it before’. A scene of Micheal Keaton standing beside the Bat Signal shows. I had chills watching that scene.
If there were to be an obscene ‘what if” type movie that stars Batman, I would love to see this exact plot take place. What do you think?
Justice League New Frontier is the first DC Comics animated film to star all of the main members of the Justice League and is the second Dc Universe original movie with the first one being Superman: Doomsday and the third being Batman: Gotham Knight. Justice League New Frontier is released in 2008 and Grossed $5,240,621.
This is one of my favorite out of all the animated Justice League movies mainly because of the artwork and the spectacular storyline.
This Justice League film is an excellent example of successfully adapting a comic book story or graphic book novel to an animated film. The characters come to life on screen. The movie seems to have 2 main goals. One is to re-image the DC Universe as it is were in the 50s. If these characters would really exist in that era , how would scenarios play out differently as compared to today? And the second goal is to explore the concept of a free nation from a super hero angle. Its the age old theme of human beings being afraid of getting rid of something that they don’t understand under the pretense of self preservation. We have superheros that uphold the American ideal of freedom. Freedom to go your own way without the govern to control your actions and freedom from persecution. But you also got a government that is afraid of what they cant control. This movie touches the sensitive concept that it is not always black and white. what would the government do if there were authorities that they cannot control? In this movie, Superman is left unchallenged by the government but the other members of the Justice league are branded a threat – probably because the government cant do anything to superman even if they tried.
Justice League Crisis On Two Earths is such a treat. The only thing that bothered me and most of my friends were the voice acting. Dc did not use their original voice actors such as Tim Daly (Superman) or Kevin Conroy (Batman) so if you can get pass that then the storyline is mind blowing. I love the parallel universe concept and this movie divulged into that theme.
So the Justice League is approached by Lex Luthor from another universe and he asks for help on his own universe where all the heroes are villains and apparently all the villains are heroes. I was treated to see what the Justice League would look like if they were villains and this movie explores all of that. The Justice League’s counter part name are the Crime Syndicate and these doppelganger have one goal in mind: world domination.
Ultimately the voice acting was poor and very bland. Once I got past that, the action and fight scenes were spectacular. Owl Man versus Batman, Ultra Man versus Superman, Flash versus Johnny Quick, and Wonder Woman versus Super Woman – what more do you want? I do recommend this Justice League movie as a rental but be warned about the voice acting. Seems like any Batman movie without Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman will not give me the Batman feel that I want.
Justice League Doom is amongst the newest animated Justice League movies with Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman. Many original voice actors that we grew up with came back as well such as Tim Daly as superman and Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman. This Justice League movie is centered around the Legion of Doom and its founder, Vandal Savage. Vandal Savage has never truly had his moment besides a few episodes on the Justice League Unlimited so this Justice League movie gives him great honer because Vandal Savage is such a great villain and he needs more ‘on screen love’!

Is It Possible To Get Batman Arkham City For Free?
I found some of these videos when I was looking for the Batman Arkham City guide and so I started investigating on if it is a scam or not. What I found out: All of the free Batman Arkham City game goes to a website called OffersGoneWild.com and they ask for your email address. I started asking questions on forums and found out that OffersGoneWild is a middleman company website that generates great information for big advertisers such as Apple or Sony. So these big companies give free gifts (whatever is hot in the market) and in return, they want ordinary individuals like you and me to complete surveys so they can obtain data to be utilized in their upcoming marketing strategies.
Companies like Mcdonalds and Red Bull spend upwards of 6 billion dollars a year in their marketing department so understanding what the consumers’ wants and needs are, are vital. OffersGoneWild.com is a service that these big companies use to gather information so giving away a few thousand game titles such as Batman Arkham City to obtain valuable information is a very intelligent route to take for these companies.
Why Do People Think it is a Scam?
many internet marketers sign up to be an affiliate to these companies to generate ‘leads’ but the way these individuals carry out their process of generating leads compromise the ‘code of ethics’ but since it is not illegal, many will continue doing what they are doing which is creating poor youtube videos and putting a link in the description box to the offer page.
The viewers take a look and some will try to sign up for the free offer but they get hit with a survey. At this stage, many individuals will leave the offer page and some will attempt to reach the person that posted up the offer. This can be quite difficult to do so many will dismiss this as a scam.
The truth is: depending on the gift, a few surveys will be required to be filled out. Big companies will not give out a 500 dollar Ipad to a person if the person only fills out one survey that took five minutes. The most likely scenario is that the person will have to fill out four or five surveys so that the big companies have more data to be used.
Offers that give a fifty dollar gift card requires two to three surveys to be filled out. Are you starting to see the system? You are exchanging your time so that advertisers can find out your interests so that they can use that information to make Tv commercials, radio advertisements and so on. Please note that this offer is valid in the USA only.
Tim Burton takes on the big task of putting a comic book action hero onto the big screen in 1989 and cast Micheal Keaton to take the cowl of the dark knight himself. There were huge fan upsets as to the choice of Batman given to Micheal Keaton given Keaton’s previous roles as happy go lucky whereas Batman is a dark and broody person. As to fans surprise, Keaton performed extremely well as the role of Bruce Wayne, billion dollar playboy, and the protector of Gotham, Batman. This was a great first live action film to the DC comic book superhero.
Micheal Keaton reprises his role as Batman in the 1991 sequel Batman Returns. Tim Burton takes control of the helm as director and does a fantastic job. The movie took a huge turn towards the dark side for its darker tone which caused controversy. Micheal Keaton dawns a newly redesigned bat suit giving it a more armored look as opposed to its 1989 counterpart.
Batman takes on 2 villains as opposed to 1 which was quite exciting for viewers around the world. The Penguin, played by Danny Devito, takes the movie in a very dark turn and Catwoman, played by Michelle Pfeiffer, gave the show great sex appeal. Their costume choices were great for its time but we are in the 21st century now so we will be expecting lots of new and exciting things for any new actors whom are planning on taking up the role of The Penguin and Catwoman. Moving forward, this was a decent sequel as one of the Batman movies.
The bat suit in the first Batman film highlights the abdominal region as muscular with the gauntlets and the utility belt as decor. The new Batsuit changed the abdominal region to resemble battle armor. Great job on the designers to reinvent and keep up with the comic book fans vision of their favorite hero.
Batman Movies: Batman Forever
Val kilmer takes the Cowl of Batman in the 1995 film Batman Forever. Tim Burton steps down as Directer and gave the helm to Joel Schumacher. Tim Burton takes on the role of producer for this film and ends his part in the Batman Movies franchise in Batman Forever.
Many new characters are introduced in Batman Forever such as Chris O’Donnel playing Robin, Jim Carrey playing The Riddler, Tommy Lee Jones playing Two Face and Nicole Kidman playin Dr. Chase Meridian. The film was highly anticipated but failed at box office due to many changes that displeased the fans. The movie took on a more colorful image giving Gotham city a new and strange futuristic feel. Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones did what they could but failed at portraying The Riddler and Two Face. Chris O’Donnell fit the image of R0bin and would move on to the next Batman movie.
The costume got reinvented again giving Batman 2 new bat suits. The original bat suit carrying the decorative yellow cylinder emblem with the black bat in the middle got replaced with a huge black bat emblem that stretches across the chest. New curves and crevices were put together that gave Batman a new look for the hungry fans which did the job well but unfortunately the unbelievable performances by Carrey And Jones and the drastic changes to the Batman world did not save the movie at box office.
Batman Movies: Batman And Robin.
Tim Burton was a smart man to leave the Batman movies but Joel Schumacher retook the role of director of a failing franchise. Batman and Robin released in the summer of 1997 with a new Batman played by George Clooney and Robin played by the same actor in the previous Batman film, Chris O’Donnell. One of the biggest pet peeves of all for the majority of movie fans is when they take the same movie and gave the role of the main character to a new actor. What happened to Bruce Wayne? did he get 10 years older while Dick Grayson (Chris O’Donell) stayed young? The Batman And Robin film introduces us to two new Villains Mr. Freeze played by Arnold Schwarzeneggar and Poison Ivy played by Uma Therman.
The movie stayed true to its prequel, Batman Forever, and kept Gotham as a colorful futuristic city with strange architecture that gave fans something very hard to swallow. Mr. Freeze hit us hard with his arsenal of ice and freeze metaphors that got old in the first 15 minutes of the film. Uma Therman plays Poison Ivy, a woman that is equipped with a toxic pheromone that causes men to be irresistible to her sexy appeal. Fans everywhere were asking the question: why can’t they choose a hotter actress? Why can’t Poison Ivy show more skin?
Batman Movies: Batman Rebooted.
12 years has passed and the terrible effects of Joel schumacher’s Batman Forever and Batman And Robin has finally worn off. Christopher Nolan takes on the role of director for the 2005 Batman Begins which rebooted the whole story to the very beginning. The story is retold with Christian Bale mounting the Bat Cowl and Micheal Caine playing the mentor to Batman and the Wayne Manor butler Alfred Pennyworth. Gotham city looks like how it should be as opposed to the colorful futuristic feel of Batman Forever and Batman And Robin. The scarecrow is a major villain in the Batman movies mythos but never had his 15 minutes of fame until Christopher Nolan cast Cillian Murphy for the role. Raz Al Ghul (Liam Neeson) is shown to be the one responsible for Bruce Wayne’s training while he was away, believed dead by Gotham. The history of Al Ghul changed from the original Batman Mythos but it worked out very well as part of great story telling.
The new bat suit looks spectacular. elements from the previous bat suits were used but improvement was taking away the wet leather look and gave the bat suit a Mat Black color giving Batman a more rugged intimidating look. The ears are shortened giving practicality to all the acrobatic moves that Batman does throughout the night.
Batman Movies: The Dark Knight.
Three years after Batman begins, the story continues with Batman The Dark Knight with Christopher Nolan directing and Christian Bale reprising the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne. The character of Racheal Dawes was changed from Katy Holmes To Maggie Gyllenhall. Every other actor kept true to their character such as Micheal Caine, and Morgan Freeman. Heath Ledger joins the Batman Franchise as The Joker and gave a very unique twist to the villain that fans loved. Aaron Eckhart takes on the role of Harvey Dent/Two Face putting Tommy Lee Jones version of Two Face to shame.
This Batman movie was excellent and takes you on for an amazing ride. Heath Ledger stole the show with his performance as The Joker keeping the viewers on the edge of their seats waiting for whats around the corner. Fans left very satisfied and wanting more.
Batman Movies: The Dark Knight Rises.
Very few is known about the plot to the New Batman movie, the 3rd and final installment to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Tom Hardy has been cast to play the role of Bane and Ann Hathaway playing the role of Cat Woman. Christian Bale returns as the Caped Crusader to take on the task of being Gotham’s silent protector against two new foes.
If Bane follows its counterpart comic book mythos correctly then Bane will be a Mexican criminal that came in possession of a venom formula that grants him increase strength, stamina and an intense immunity to pain. As Bane wreaks havoc on Gotham city, it is Batman’s duty to stop Bane from taking over but at the same time a new villain lurks in the shadows of Gotham. Cat woman; treasure seeker that uses her stealth and handy gadgets to break into high security museums and wealthy homes to acquire gems, jewels and other cat related artifacts that are worth a kings ransom. Cat woman shares a complicated short relationship with Batman in the comics so we hope to see Christian Bale and Ann Hathaway flight up the theaters this coming summer for Batman The Dark Knight Rises.
Batman Movies – Justice League Doom is the newest animated movie in a long and successful line of DC animated films. Justice League Doom is the thirteenth animated film from Dc Comics and a very successful adaptation from comics to animated film. Marvel is falling behind and Dc Comics is pumping out movie after movie to steer the fans to Dc Comics. It seems like Marvel is focusing on the big screen with their upcoming movie The Avengers and other upcoming projects. According to Wikipedia.Org, Marvel has launched a total of 8 animated films and the last one was in 2011 for Thor: Tales of Asgard – which was great but the super hero fan base is growing and we need more. Dc Comics has now launched 13 animated film with 2 upcoming films titled Superman Versus The Elite and The Dark Knight Returns – which I assume is a continuation from The Dark Knight Rises.
Justice League Doom Plot
As mentioned in another post, Justice League Doom is derived from the Justice League story Arc titled JLA tower of Babel which focuses on Batman’s plans for the JLA team for if they go rogue. Batman has detailed plans on neutralizing each and every main JLA member hidden in his Bat-cave hard drive. The enemy team, calling themselves Legion Of Doom, would steal the plans and use the plans to take down the Justice League.
In Justice League Doom, Vandal Savage is the founding leader for the team whom employs Cheetah, Metallo, Mirror Master, Ma’alefa’ak, and Bane to neutralize each member of the JLA team with the plans stolen from Batman. The Legion of Doom succeeds in stealing the plans and begins to take out the JLA team one by one until Batman escapes from his parent’s coffin (whom Bane traps Batman in with his dead parents) and alerts the whole JLA team of the situation. Cyborg makes a great appearance and assists the JLA team. Since Cyborg isn’t a member of the JLA, there is no data on him thus making Cyborg a great ally against the Legion Of Doom.
