Batman: Arkham Knight Review

Batman: Arkham Knight Review
Rocksteady Studios’ final outing in the Arkhamverse is packed with bombastic set-pieces, its own brand of bone-crunching (and now tyre-screeching) combat and a tale worthy of the best Batman comics, all set in the most stunningly realised Gotham City that’s ever existed on page or screen. The game itself looks gorgeous, with cutscenes switching seamlessly into the beautiful, dark world Rocksteady have brought to life. The attention to... 

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...

At the time, it was explained that the show, developed by The Mentalist creator Bruno Heller, would focus on Commissioner James Gordon and the villains who made Gotham famous before Batman’s appearance.

Batgirl #0 Review
September sees the one year anniversary of the launch of DC Comics’ big reboot; the New 52, and to celebrate DC are releasing a Zero issue for each of its continuing titles (from the New 52) throughout the month. If like me you are a huge comic nerd then this can only be a good thing. There are many titles that I am looking forward to reading, bagging, boarding and then adding to my collection, but one title in particular has had me counting...

First poster for The Dark Knight Rises?

First poster for The Dark Knight Rises?
CHRISTOPHER NOLAN certainly knows how to amp up anticipation for his movies – and the first official teaser poster for The Dark Knight Rises is no different. Showing a crumbling city – shot from the ground up – the buildings are set up in such a way that the sky is now the Bat-symbol. There’s also a little Inception look about the who thing, but that also appeals. The poster first came to our attention thanks to the folk at...
