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.

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.

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”.

The Absolute Best of the Century (Thus Far)

When it was first suggested that each Dork Shelfer (we’re kinda like the Maple Leafs that way) write a blurb about their favourite comic book, video game and movie of the past decade, reactions were mixed. It’s the general consensus that the only thing more arbitrarily reductive than declaring the ‘best’ of the year is […]

DC Comics looks to 2010

New formats, new stories, and the worst kept secret in comics. The Return of Bruce Wayne At the end of Final Crisis, Bruce Wayne was believed dead. Well…  not so much dead as trapped back in time. The DC heroes all think Bruce Wayne is dead, except for Red Robin aka Tim Drake, but he […]
