Batman: Arkham City X-11 Impressions

Rocksteady Studios showed off a preview build of Batman: Arkham City at Microsoft's X-11 event last week, and we had a chance to romp through a wrecked of Gotham's biggest prison yard ever. Unsurprisingly, we left as excited as the previews and trailers have been making us over the past year, and then some.

Hathaway’s Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises

The first shot of Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's upcoming film The Dark Knight Rises surfaced today. Played by Anne Hathaway, the cat burglar (real name Selina Kyle) wears leather and a high-tech visor of some sort, while riding a bike that looks an awful lot like the one Christian Bale's Batman has been known to use.

The Dark Knight Rises Teaser Trailer Arrives

The first theatrical teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises has debuted online. Nolan (The Dark Knight, Inception) has a great track record with very non-descript but thoroughly engaging teasers for each one of his films, usually accompanied by an equally gripping poster to build anticipation.

Batman: Arkham City Catwoman Trailer

Rocksteady Studios certainly know how to make an announcement. At a pre-E3 showing of Batman: Arkham City, details emerged about a second playable character. In addition to beating up thugs as Batman, you’ll spend some time as Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman.

Batman Incorporated #4 Review

Grant Morrison’s Batman Incorporated explodes in issue #4! One of the two titles featuring the returned Bruce Wayne, I found the previous three issues to be incredibly weak. Thankfully that all changes with issue #4.

Batman: Arkham City Gameplay Trailer

Over a year after the then-unnamed sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum was announced to a chorus of applause, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer Rocksteady Studios have finally released a trailer for the sequelArkham City that includes sweet, sweet gameplay for fans to devour and analyse.

Power Girl #21 Review

Style over substance. That is the typical first reaction when someone mentions the Power Girl title. Or, thoughts of cheesecake art that hangs on skeleton thin plotlines. This is not the case though.

Batman and Robin #20 Review

Spinning out of the events of Battle for the Cowl, is the debut of the new Dynamic Duo of Dick Grayson and Damien Wayne. I thoroughly enjoyed the new Batman and Robin series at first, but found my interest waning during the second story arc. I thought I was finished with the series after issue #13, until I saw the previews for the latest issue tucked at the end of all the major DC comics this week.

The Dark Knight Rises Casts Hathaway & Hardy

Hero Complex today ended one of the biggest bits of casting speculation in recent memory: Anne Hathaway is set to play Catwoman and Tom Hardy will play Bane in the third installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman cycle, The Dark Knight Rises. They join returning cast members Christian Bale, Michael Caine and Gary Oldman.

Tim Burton Takes Toronto – Part 2

Part two of Sasha's Tim Burton Takes Toronto examines the director's late 80s and early 90s work: Batman, Edward Scissorhands and Batman Returns. From 7 p.m. on Friday, November 26 to some ungodly hour on the morning of Sunday, November 28th, Torontonians were invited to TIFF Bell Lightbox to screen the entirety of Tim Burton’s filmography. This was in celebration of the Burton exhibit coming to town, which was first curated by the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. For some, myself included, the prospect of sitting through sixteen feature films by Burton was intriguing — a Burton Blitz of sorts. Others might call it “Hell on Earth”.
