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’!
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.
We have more updates on the Batman toys, action figures and statues for Nolan’s third installment of The Dark Knight Rises. These figures and statues are not yet available in stores but will be released this coming summer in June and July. They look extremely articulate and depicts the actors in the Dark Knight Rises with various poses and they can’t look any better.
Batman Action Figures from The Dark Knight Rises.
Here we go again. After every great summer block buster, there comes the merchandise and action figure for the game. Have you notice before the Green Lantern movie with Ryan Reynolds, the Green Lantern merchandise is scarce and hard to find in toy stores but shortly after the Green Lantern movie was announced, toy stores quickly designate a section of their store to Green Lantern? Well the same goes for Batman and since Batman is such a huge icon in the DC universe, this is nothing new. Big toy retailers such as Toys R Us did not have to make room but simply add to their on going Batman merchandise. These new Batman action figures from the Batman movie ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ are a great new addition to a great line of Batman action figures.
Images of action figures from the upcoming Batman Dark Knight Rises movie has been circulating the web and causing fans like us to drool over the excitement. A few images has been shared around forums such as SuperHeroHype and the Hot Toys facebook fanpage.
Batman Action Figures From Hot Toys.
So a few weeks ago Hot Toys put up a picture of their upcoming statue for Bane. the problem is, this picture is only a teaser due to Bane’s cut off head.According to Hot Toys, This statue of Bane will be released before the Batman Dark Knight Rises movie comes out. What is missing from the picture? What about all the other characters? Hot Toys also put up a picture of their version of the Tumbler. For all you collectors out there, This tumbler would make a great addition to the collection.
thanks to our friends over at SuperHeroHype, We now have images from the upcoming Batman movie of Bane, Batman and Catwoman. These statues look extremely articulate. Bane’s appearance does not reveals any spoilers from the movie. We really want to know if Bane will get beefy and extremely muscular like his comic book counterpart. Catwoman looks very nice but for Batman comic book fans like myself, we are not feeling the costume and Anne Hathaway as Catowman (at lease not yet).
Justice League: Doom is the next upcoming movie for a great line of Justice League Movies. From the looks of the trailer, this movie will not disappoint. Batman teaming up with his allies such as Superman, Green Lantern, Flash, Wonder Woman. Cyborg is shown in the trailer so we believe he will be joining the team. Finally Cyborg gets his 15 minutes of fame and escapes the kid image from the Tv Show Teen Titans.
Similar to Batman Year One, Justice League: Doom is derived from a Justice League Story Arc titled JLA: Tower of Babel, Where several villains join forces to take on and destroy the Justice League. Many members has appeared in the Legion Of Doom such as Lex Luthor, Joker, Cheeta, Weather Wizard, Felix Faust, Gorilla Grodd, Giganta, Soloman Grundy, and Amazo. In the upcoming Justice League: Doom, we do not see Luther from the trailer but we know that he is the main character and master mind behind the Legion Of Doom. Instead we see Vandal Savage as the main man whom offers his version of the Legion Of Doom a large sum of money to take them out.
According to the Tower of Babel story Arc, the Legion of Doom a quires the information to take down all the members of the Justice League, stolen from Batman. Why does Batman have this type of information? Well our favorite Dark Knight is not a type to trust anyone, including his own teammates. Superman would be the one person that Batman would consider a close friend but even Superman, under the influence of Red Kryptonite would turn to the ‘Dark Side’.
Many voices will be reprising their superhero roles such as Tim Daly as Superman ( Superman: TAS, JLA Unlimited) Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman (JLA, JLA Unlimited), Michael Rsembaum as The Flash (Smallville Tv Series), and Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern.
We are treated to the famous Batman voice from Kevin Conroy to play as Batman. Kevin Conroy has been the voice of Batman ever since the first Batman Tv show aired back in 1992. The previous Batman Movie: Batman Year One used another actor’s voice which caused the Batman Movie to receive bad reviews from fans around the world.
Justice League Doom release date is set for February 28, 2012.
Batman Action Figures: Batman Computer Sitter Bobble Head
This is a great addition to anyone that loves bobble heads and is a Batman fan. The classic costumed caped crusader Batman action figure resembles the costume design from back in Adam West days as Batman the Dark Knight. This Batman action figures bobble head stands at approximately 4 inches tall and the head will bobble at the slightest touch. He is designed to sit on top of the computer moniter and will keep a stale room seem more full of life. For more information on this batman action figures bobble head, please click here.
Batman Action Figures: DC Universe Batman Bobble Head
This Batman bobble head is my favorite Batman bobble head out there right now. Why? I really love this costume design. The grey body with the black gauntlet, boots mask and cape looks great on Batman. The classic yellow utility belt adds vintage style and one of the new bat logo finishes the whole costume to perfection. This Batman bobble head is a great addition and looks great in the dashboard of my car. For more information on this Batman Action figure bobble head, please click here.
Batman Action Figures: The Dark Knight Batman Bobble Head
The huge wave of Batman Action figures that was born from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight has arrived and is hitting the shelves across North America and on the internet by storm. When you walk into a Toys R Us and look at their DC comics section, you will find Christian Bale’s Batman merchandise everywhere. So obviously a Batman bobblehead would come out sooner or later.This Batman bobble head is a great replica of Christian Bale’s version of Batman. I love the podium that he stands on. Every little detail is added to this Batman bobble head. The only thing that i have a problem is, is that the bobble head is basically one color: Black. I would love to see this bobblehead have more attitude to it by adding more color but since it’s from the Dark Knight trilogy from Christopher Nolan, that might be too much to ask. for more information on this Batman bobble head, please click here.
DC Universe Batman Joker Bobble Head
I cannot finish the Batman Bobble head collection without mentioning the true prince of darkness, the Joker. The Joker has always been my all time favorite Batman villain in the Batman mythos because he adds dark humor that we all truly enjoy hearing but we are too afraid to admit it. If the world did not know who the Joker was before Christopher Nolan’s Batman The Dark Knight trilogy, they do now after Heath Ledger takes his role as the Joker to a level that no other actor can take on in the near future. Heath Ledger turns Jack Nicolson’s The Joker into shame. For more information on this Batman bobble head, please click here.
After Batman: Brave And The Bold ends in November 2011 a new Batman project will be underway for 2013 titled Beware The Batman.Beware The Batman will be setting a more serious tone back to the Batman mythos as compared to The Brave And The Bold which took more of a comical approach to Batman. Beware The Batman will also be bringing out some of the lesser villains and giving them their 15 minutes of fame since popular villains like The Joker, 2Face, Catwoman, and The Penguin all have their faces on many Batman tv shows and on the big screen.
Beware The Batman will air in the fall of 2013 for the United States on the Cartoon network as part of their new cartoon lineups.
Beware The Batman Art.
As of today there has not been very much artwork released for Beware The Batman. The main poster picture which has been circling around the internet shows what appears to be a CG picture of Batman in a blue-ish background with a couple few villains posing around him. Since the more popular villains will not be a big part of Beware The Batman, we can only speculate on who these villains are on the promo poster of Beware The Batman. A surprising twist to this new Batman TV show is the boy wonder will not be making an appearance and in his shoes as Batman’s sidekick will be Katana.
Above is a picture of Katana as depicted on Batman: The Brave And The Bold.
For more information on Katana, please click here.
Above is the picture of Beware The Batman promo poster. We see Batman and his sidekick Katana in battle on Gotham city with four villains posing.
Beware The Batman TV Show: My Thoughts.
Even though this show has not yet aired, it is getting tones of negative feedback from the hardcore Batman fans that are active on the internet. The poster does not stir up excitement and replacing our beloved boy wonder Dick Grayson with Katana seems like a very big mistake. I would love to see the story continue on and maybe see the Jason Todd storyline that Batman The Animated Series would not air because of the gruesome death of the second Robin.
Batman’s character design looks very unappealing. Pop culture designing Batman towards a very intimidating image through comic books and the recent Christopher Nolan’s Batman The Dark Knight series has made us to seeing a very unbelievable Batman. This Batman looks like the CG version of the 90′s Batman TAS. The gear is mainly in the belt and everything else is latex or rubber. Maybe this Batman TV show is set in a time before the major villains and the first Robin, Dick Grayson which would account for the lack in expensive gadgetry.
Bruce Wayne returns back to Gotham from a twelve year leave to study martial arts, science and man hunting to see that his home is infested with crime. Jim Gordon has been hired by the current Commissioner to be the lieutenant but Jim is thrown into a world full of corrupted cops when he witnesses his partner Detective Flass assault a teenager on the streets of Gotham for his own entertainment. Bruce Wayne struggles to find himself as a crime fighter and Jim struggles with his moral code and his new job as lieutenant of the Gotham Police Department.
The first thing I noticed when I watched the Batman Year One movie was that its total run time is only over one hour long. I did not do any research to what the Batman Year One movie was all about except for its trailer that I watched from Youtube. The animation style for the movie was very unique and I was quite excited to see my favorite superhero on big screen kicking ass and defending a crime infested city. My eyes were shocked and my rating for the Batman Year One movie fell below what I had hoped to give it. Please stop right now and watch the Batman Year One Animated film in the link below.
The beginning would begin with a narration by lieutenant Gordon (before he became commissioner) which leads me to think that we would get to see Gotham and Batman through lieutenant Gordon’s eyes. Byran Cranston plays an excellent Jim Gordon throughout the movie but unfortunately I cannot say the same about Batman/Bruce Wayne. Brian Mackenzie would voice Batman and would go on to being (in my opinion) the worst voice for Batman in history. They should have brought back Kevin Conroy, the famous voice of Batman, to play the role in Batman Year One Even though it would be more costly to employ Kevin Conroy for the part, it would please all the Batman fans around the world, and yes, Batman has a legion of fans. Other actors portrayal of characters such as Catwoman/Selena Kyle, Carmine Falcone and many other miscellaneous characters in the Batman Universe were great.
As mentioned above, the overall run time of the movie was very disappointing. I felt like there was not enough time for viewers to get into the character and for the characters to develop. It felt very rushed and in a hurry to finish. Coming from its predecessor Batman Under The Hood, I had extremely high expectations for Batman Year one.
Overall, I would recommend this Batman animated film for Batman fans all over the world, but for someone just getting into the Batman mythos, please disregard this movie and start with a batman movie or show that has Kevin Conroy as Batman/Bruce Wayne. I would give this five out of ten and place it just behind Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm.
Is Gotham City Impostors The Next Great First Person Shooter?
Gotham City Impostors has finally arrived. This newest Batman game does not have Batman in it but the theme of the game is based on the Batman mythology. Gotham City Impostors is a first person shooter game that is multiplayer only and is set in the Dc Comics Gotham City. This downloadable game can be played from the perspective of 2 teams that will be trying to kill eachother utilizing knifes, guns, and other wacky gadgets that is common to Batman and his arch nemesis The Joker. One side will be themed like vigiliante Batmen`s and the other side will have clown like traits to depict The Joker. Both sides will be able to use gadgets like grappling hooks, roller skates, exposives and glider wings as well as the standard guns and knifes. Does this new Batman themed game remind you of the first person shooter game Counter Strike that hit gamers by storm? There seems to be a lot of simularities such as a level where the Batmen`s or Joker`s task is to bring a battery back to their base and defend it for as long as they can until their machines brainwash the other team. Gotham City Impostors will be released in February 7th 2012.
Meet The Bats. The Gotham City Impostors AKA The Good Guys.
As you might already know, Gotham is Batman`s home. We assume Batman is off with the justice league fighting crime in a city or planet far far away so these wannabe crime fighters take on Batman`s job and defend Gotahm city. What they lack is Batman`s super powers aka Batman`s wealth and aquisition of expensive gadgets and hightech vehicle. So these Bat vigilantes use what they can get which is mainly explosives guns and anything that a vigilante can aquire on the streets of Gotham. their appearance is quite comical due to the fact that they do not possess Batman`s armor, so they wear what they have but with a bat symbol or emblem on the chest. These Bat vigilantes encounter a chaotic gang that is dressed in the theme of the Joker.
Meet the Jokerz. Gotham City`s New Gang.
Introducing the other guys in Gotham City Impostors. the bad guys are the Jokerz, a gang dressed like the super villain The Joker, whom takes on the `good guys`with the Jokers trademark style. These Jokerz also utilizes the same weaponry that is available to the `good guys`. These Jokerz have an eary resemblence to the Jokerz of the Batman Beyond Tv series but with less hightech gadjets.
After the hugely successful 2009 animated film Superman/Batman: Public Enemies Dc comics and Warner Brothers starts on their new project in the 2010 Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. Contrary to the title, the batman animated film focuses mainly on Super Girl and the film would have Batman as a side character alongside Superman and Wonder Woman. Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy would reprise their role as Superman and Batman to fight alongside Super Girl and Wonder Woman defending the earth from a self proclaimed god, Darksied.
Spoiler alert. If you have not yet watched the movie, please do so before reading on.
After a huge meteorite falls to earth, Batman investigates only to find Kryptonian symbols covering a ship like meteor. A confused girl left the ship shortly before Batman’s arrival to the meteor. She finds herself in a strange city (Gotham) whom she does not recognize or does she speak the natives language. To make matters worst, she is blessed/cursed with superhuman strength, speed, heat vision and flight. We soon discovers that the confused girl is Kara Zor-el, biological cousin of Superman. Superman begins mentoring and introducing Kara to her new found powers and to acclimate to her new home. Wonder Woman introduces herself and firmly offers Kara to her home island to train her properly and Superman reluctantly agrees.
Darkseid learns of Kara’s arrival to earth and plots to take her to his home planet of Apocalips and make her the new leader of his Female furies. Darkseid succeeds in kidnapping Kara in Wonder Woman’s home island causing Batman Superman and Wonder Woman to seek help from Darkseid’s previous leader of the Female Furies (Big Barda) located on earth. The four uses Barda’s boom tube to transport to Darksied’s home planet of Apocolips to rescue Kara but instead they find a brainwashed Kara that is a loyal servant of Darkseid. Superman eventually subdues Kara but it was Batman using Darsied’s own Hell Spores as a weapon to destroy Apocolips if Darsied does not decide to leave Kara alone. The four plus Kara returns back to earth and Superman decides to introduce Kara to his adoptive parents in Smallville but instead got ambushed by Darkseid. (spoiler alert) Kara and Superman Battles Darkseid in an epic battle for the ages which results in Darkseid’s defeat.
The anticipation and excitement was quite high set by the great standards of the predecessor, Superman/Batman Public Enemies. The great voice of Tim Daly gave us a strong and believable Superman and the legendary Kevin Conroy is behind the cowl of the bat. Warner Brothers put out a lot more money to get Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy to reprise their role and we as the fans are glad that they did it. Would Superman/Batman Apocalypse had been that successful without Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy’s voices? Previous Batman films that does not use Kevin Conroy’s voice had not been on my top favorites for Batman movies and there is a reason why. Every single animated Batman film or Batman Tv Show with Kevin Conroy’s voice for Batman has been hugely successful amongst us fans.
Aside from Superman’s strange appearance with the mascara eyes, Tim Daly plays a very believable Superman reminiscent of the popular Superman The Animated Series. Why did they have to give Superman mascara? We will never know the true reasons as to why but that was not the strange factor in Superman/Batman: apocalypse. The strange part for me was how Wonder Woman was introduced to us by attacking Kara and Clark Kent in the park at night time. Wonder Woman’s intention was to bring Kara to her home Island of Thamascira for training so why attack her and arguably the most powerful man on planet earth, Superman? Wonder Woman is to be one of the founding members of the Justice League so by meeting that way throws us hardcore fans off by just a notch.
Batman’s famous dark avenger attitude did not disappoint in Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. Batman gives an Oscar winning performance by hijacking the Hell Spores from Darkseid’ home planet of Apocalips and uses the Hell Spores as a weapon to destroy Apocalips alongside Superman, Wonder Woman, Kara and himself if he does not get what he wants from Darkseid. Now that is how Batman should be doing business!
Batman Movies In Order: Batman Under The Red Hood.
Batman movies in order places Batman under the red hood as the next batman animated movie succeeding Superman/Batman Apocalips. Batman under the red hood is a 2010 animated batman movie based on the comic book series ‘Batman under the red hood’ and ‘Death In The Family’. The animated film was hugely successful amongst fans. Based on seven reviews collected o Rotten Tomatoes. Batman: Under the Red Hood received a rare ‘Extremely Fresh’ score with an average of a 100% approval rating; it is currently the highest rated direct-to-video Batman film of all time, beating Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero which held the previous title with a 90% approval rating.
Batman Movies In Order: Batman Under The Red Hood plot.
Following the death of the second Robin, Jason Todd, Batman falls under extreme guilt and does not take on a new Robin for some time until Tim Drake comes along (but that comes after this story arc). Five years after Jason Todd’s death, a new criminal mastermind has entered Gotham City. Calling himself the Red Hood, he moves underground beneath Batman’s detection for some time.
Equipped with guns, mastery of combat, and the ruthless means to kill if need be, the Red Hood slowly takes over the organized crime in Gotham City. There is one roadblock in Red Hood’s way and that is the current crime boss in Gotham which is the Black Mask. Upset by Red Hood’s involvement and theft of Black Mask’s shipments, Black mask uses his resources and releases the Joker from Arkham Asylum to hunt down the Red Hood. Batman takes notice of what is going on in Gotham and after a couple of encounter with the Red Hood, it is revealed that Red Hood knows Batman’s identity. With the help of Night Wing, Batman chases down Red Hood, and confirms that the Red Hood is truly Jason Todd by taking a blood sample and analyzing it after their previous encounter. The Red Hood explains that he can do what Batman can never do in order to keep Gotham safe. Red Hood reveals that his plan is to take control of the organized crime so that he can reduce it and have it under control for there will never be a Gotham clean from crime. Batman argues against Red Hood’s methods to kill and offers his help.
Red Hood declines and leaves the scene. Red Hood later abducts the Joker and beats him with a crowbar, the same way the joker had beaten Jason five years earlier. Batman interrupts Red Hood’s revenge on the Joker and expresses his apologies and regrets to the Red Hood but to no avail. Red Hood gave Batman an ultimatum, Either allow red hood to shoot and kill the Joker or Batman would have to shoot and kill Red Hood to stop him. Batman refuses and turns his back. Red Hood, distraught, turns the gun his former mentor. Red Hood gets disarmed but not until he activates a bomb. The bomb takes out a part of the building but only Batman and the Joker emerges after the dust clears. Joker is returned to Arkham Asylum.
The animated movie ends with a scene from the past showing Jason Todd on his first day as the new Robin. The young Robin declares happily that it’s the best day of his life.
Batman Movies In Order: Batman Under The Redd Hood Review.
After seeing the trailer for Batman under the red hood I was excited. If you took “Batman TAS” and combine it with ‘Batman The Dark Knight’ you have Batman Under The Red Hood. Even though the ratings say that this movie is PG-13, there is nothing PG-13 about it. This movie is how a animated Batman should be shown. There’s blood, there’s violence, there’s death. Right in the beginning of this Batman animated film, we see Jason Todd, the second Robin, beaten to near death by Joker wielding a crowbar. Right from the beginning we see what television is afraid to put on their Saturday mornings. throughout Batman TAS and The New Adventures Of Batman, the creators skipped right over Jason Todd’s death to keep everything PG-13, so for fans that do not follow the comic books, we miss out on a very important comic book series ‘ Death In The Family’ where Batman looses his second Robin to the Joker. This movie fills in that gap between Dick Grayson, the first Robin, and Tim Drake, the third Robin.
We also get to see a villain that didn’t get his fifteen minutes of fame, Black Mask’. We explore Black Mask’s criminal organization and see how a crime boss reduce to hiring the infamous Joker to take care of his Red Hood pest.
We also see Night Wing in action. The tension between Dick Grayson and Batman has always been very entertaining to watch. Since this movie acts as a bridge between Dick Grayson and the third Robin, we do not get to see Tim Drake in’ Under The Red Hood’. But with everything else going on in this Batman movie, we forgot about Tim Drake and focuses solely on Jason Todd. Who doesn’t enjoy watching a dead man rise once again to take revenge on his killers? Brandon Lee’s ‘The Crow’ was a huge hit and made the concept of dead man walking and taking vengeance a very cool concept.
I rate this Batman animated film 9 out of 10 for its violence, character development, and great cast of voices. Even though we didn’t get treated with Kevin Conroy’s voice as Batman, Bruce Greenwood did an excellent job portraying the Dark Knight.

Batman Hoodie: All View Men’s Zip Hooded Sweatshirt.
I went with this Batman hoodie in blue because there is nothing like this anywhere else. The only Batman hoodie that is the same as the classic but in turquoise blue and with the Batman face on both sides of the hood part of this stylish hoodie. This hoodie was quite hard for me to track down since I can only find it on Amazon.com and with the coupon code, this hoodie comes to under 45 dollars. Every Batman novelty store I have been to does not have a big selection of hoodies and even if there were selection, the material was very poorly made and it felt like after a couple of washes, the hoodie would be torn to shreds.

Batman Hoodie Logo Men’s Zip Hooded Sweatshirt.
This is by far my favorite hoodie. I find black too depressing and whit, too cheerful. This grey Batman Hoodie is the perfect fit on the days where I cant choose. I love the logo change from the classic Batman logo. The logo totally removes the yellow circle emblem and takes the Bat symbol and paints it in total yellow.

DC Comics Batman Zip-Up Hoodie.
This Batman hoodie has what the original hoodie lacks. I love the classic hoodie but I also love zippers. Zippered hoodies makes it very easy to put on and take off and this Hoodie offers that flexibility. The Bat symbol is also much bigger and wider than the original classic hoodie and slim fits the body. For more information on this hoodie, please click here.
This Batman costume has gotta be the close as it gets to the real thing out of the many Batman Halloween Costumes out there today.
Batman was introduced to the world by DC Comics in 1939, and the caped crusader has been the favorite by many worldwide. Many fans has worn the Bat Suit in the past but no fan has looked this close to Batman till now. This full latex costume has intricately sculpted muscle pieces for the perfect Batman look.
-Testimonials courtesy of BuyCostumes: Amazingly detailed, high quality costume. Better than i had expected. The Cowl fits perfectly on my head, but when other family members tried it on they swam in it (my head is notoriously larger than others), so you may need to pad it if you have a pea-head. The Gloves are great, the chest piece and thigh pieces are perfect! However I would recommend using boots as opposed to the calf pieces and shoes (easier mobility). The cape is amazing with small weights in the bottom points and two longer sticks in the front ends to hold for some great photo ops. It is very long, if you are shorter than 5 10″ it will drag on the ground a little. My only peeve is that I received two right bicep pieces, so my left arm doesn’t look quite right… Otherwise, the costume is awesome, agents will want you for kids parties and Gotham will want you to take on a full time job.
Batman Halloween Costumes: The Batman Muscle Chest Adult Costume.
Classics never go out of style for this Batman suit. It does not matter how old or young you are or how deep your pockets are, this Batman costume is extremely versatile, comfy, and looks great. This great Batman halloween costume stays true to the original colors of the caped crusader from back in the 1950′s.
-testimonials courtesy of BuyCostumes: This costume was a big hit! I bought it for my brother to wear at my little boys 3 year Birthday bash. The costume fit perfectly and none of the kids knew who was behind the mask until he made his reveal. The cape was great! Awesome purchase! I would recomend this costume to anyone who is looking to fulfill their super hero needs!!!
- The quality of this costume is really good for a halloween costume, especially for the price. I was getting compliments all throughout the night. I would definitely recommend this to friends. The only downfall is that I had to get out of my costume to go to the bathroom, but after a few times I got pretty good at it. Almost wish there was a zipper down there for it. Also, I’m 6’0″ 190 lbs, and the costume fit well except that i was about a half inch too tall, where the custumn rides up on me. But it wasn’t horrible and wasn’t uncomfortable, just a little wedgy. Overall, great costume.
This Batman infant costume is one of the cutest costumes available to infants. Start your boys early on their hero envy and give them the great gift of a precious memory that they will have for the rest of their life that when they were young, they got the opportunity to be the caped crusader. Choose from the classic Batman Costume or the new Dark Knight costume, the choice is yours.
-testimonials courtesy of BuyCostumes: I bought this outfit for our son to wear next year. i am pregnant now and my husband absoluetly loves batman so after halloween this year i ordered this and i cant wait for my son to be born and he can wear it becuase it is too cute!
-I was so excited to buy in July this costume for my 8 month old son who is just around 20 pounds to find that this costume is kind of too perfect in size, & it may not fit in October. So you may want to order a size up for your little one. Aside from that the construction just seems home made. The costume opens with flimsy plastic snaps and I think if I had seen this in a store I might have passed on it.
Batman The Dark Knight, also known as TDK, is an American movie directed by Christopher Nolan as part of his 3 part trilogy that reboots the story of Batman which began back in 1989 with Tim Burton as director. The Dark Knight is the second movie from Nolan`s Batman The Dark Knight trilogy which came out in 2008, 3 years after the first Batman Movie: Batman Begins. returning actor Christian Bale takes back his role of the character Batman and with a returning cast of Gary Oldman as James Gordon, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox. Aaron Eckhart is introduced as Harvey Dent, Gotham`s new District Attorney whom allies himself with Batman The Dark Knight to combat a new criminal mastermind calling himself Joker. Heath Ledger was chosen to play the infamous `Joker` whom takes advantage of the demotivated crime families of Gotham City and offers his services to killing Batman for a huge sum of money. The Gotham City`s Crime family agrees to the offer and Joker takes his sense of dark sadistic humor and turns it loose onto Gotham.
Batman armed to the teeth with his high tech gadgetry takes on Joker but Joker elaborately sets Batman up to fail causing Batman to choose one life to save out of the 2 people he admires the most in the world. Harvey Dent, like his comic book counter part, turns insane from a freak accident that grotesquely disfigures half of his face and body. (spoiler alert) Harvey, now calling himself 2 face, turns to villainy and takes revenge on on Gotham City and the corrupt cops that he believes is responsible for the death of his girlfriend Rachael Dawes.
Batman Movies: Batman The Dark Knight Review.
I was fortunate enough to see this Batman movie on the screening night, a day ahead from everyone else. I was blown away from Christopher Nolan`s Batman The Dark Knight. This Batman Movie has everything a guy would want, action, adventure, suspense; however, the film kept a great amount of love and loss to keep the women happy. The role of Heath Ledger as the Joker is epic. There will be no one at this time that can play a better Joker than Heath Ledger. During the movie, Ledger`s role of Joker gets you at the edge of your seats with his fantastic acting and spectacular twist to the Joker that has been played by Jack Nicolson in Time Burton`s 1989 movie `Batman`. By the end of the movie, I did not know who was the main character, Batman or Joker. Even though Christian Bale plays a very good Batman, fans wanted more of the Joker but sadly, due to a mixation of prescription drugs, Ledger passed away early 2008.
Batman Movies: Batman The Dark Knight Rises Teaser.
The Dark Knight Rises is the final installment of an American film produced by Christopher Nolan and stars Christian Bale taking the cowl of the dark avenger himself. Nolan began the three part film with Batman Begins as he retells the story of Bruce Wayne’s life before batman and his struggle to become Gotham’s protector. Nolan did not adapt any concepts from the previous Batman movies except for the characters and story of the Batman mythology which greatly pleased the fans. The previous Batman movies were great for its time but it lacked the great story telling and technology of the twenty first century.
