Composer Hans Zimmer “Retires” From Superhero Movies

Composer Hans Zimmer “Retires” From Superhero Movies
Composer Hans Zimmer has a major element in the success of some of DC’s biggest box office hits of recent years (plus one flirtation with Marvel for The Amazing Spider-Man 2) but it looks like superheroes won’t be able to call on his services in the future. Zimmer has told the BBC that he is retiring from doing superhero movies after struggling to find a way do something new with Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, on which he worked alongside... 

The official Batman v Superman trailer has been released – watch it here

The official Batman v Superman trailer has been released – watch it here
We truly live in the age of instant gratification. Though next week’s special IMAX-only screenings for the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer were recently confirmed from director Zack Snyder‘s tweet, it seems fans could not wait that long. Believed to have been illegally filmed from one such special screening, a leak of blurry footage spread like wildfire on YouTube and torrent sites yesterday. Well, now we have the real... 

Holy Pepper Jack Cheese! McDonalds have a Batman Burger!

Holy Pepper Jack Cheese! McDonalds have a Batman Burger!
It is not unusual to see themed burgers in McDonalds, with everything from Route 66 to the time of year used as an inspiration for a themed product. So one could argue that it was only a matter of time before we saw the chosen theme bridge out in to popular culture for their inspiration. Enter McDonalds in Hong Kong and their brand new BATMAN (yes, that’s right, BATMAN) themed burger creation. The burger is made up of two beef patties, piled... 

New Batman v Superman Images from SDCC

New Batman v Superman Images from SDCC
2014 marks the 75th anniversary of Batman. A prominent feature in pop culture, Batman became a game changer for the superhero genre after Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy altered the general public’s perception of comic books. Given the special occasion the character is celebrating this year, it would have been disappointing had this year’s San Diego Comic Con not featured something from the upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of... 

The History Of The Dark Knight In Seven Minutes

The History Of The Dark Knight In Seven Minutes
In celebration of his 75th anniversary later this year, Digital Spy has released a fantastic seven minute video that goes into great detail of the history of the Dark Knight himself, Batman. Batman is not like your average superhero. He’s different. He has no superpowers, all he has is his sense of honour to bring justice to Gotham City. Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in 1939 in Detective Comics #27, Batman first came out during the... 

New Batsuit revealed for Ben Affleck’s Batman from Batman vs Superman

New Batsuit revealed for Ben Affleck’s Batman from Batman vs Superman
The Batman vs Superman news keeps coming. Whilst yesterday Zack Snyder went ahead and told us that it may be time to pull the tarp on the new Batmobile, many didn’t consider that it’d be so soon. While the latest image did show more of the Batmobile, that is not what the attention was on. The main focus was the reveal of Ben Affleck as Batman, and also the Batsuit. I shot this with my @Leica_Camera M Monochrom. #Batman #Batmobile #Gotham http://t.co/WPHKLxgBLM...

The Cat and the Bat are cast in Gotham

Man of Steel Review

Man of Steel Review
Look! In the cinema! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a phenomenal superhero reboot film in the guise of Man of Steel. Yes, Superman is back on the big screen since his last outing with Superman Returns, and things are decidedly more epic this time around. Fresh off the Dark Knight trilogy, director Christopher Nolan has taken a producing role, and with Batman scribe David S. Goyer and director Zack Snyder in tow, the filmmakers have brought... 

The Dark Knight Rises Review

The Dark Knight Rises Review
I know this is a big claim, but I think that The Avengers has just been knocked off the top spot for superhero movies. Sure it may not gross as high and the film may not have the mass appeal that the family friendly action blockbuster had, but The Dark Knight Rises fills a very different and equally important role in the landscape of superhero films. Let me start of by saying that The Dark Knight Rises is less of a Batman film, and more of a Bruce...
