This week we have a review of another DC Animated film – this time adapting the arc that introduced Batman’s son Damien.
A new series from Bruce Timm, the guy that brought us the Batman, Superman, and Justice League cartoons from the 90’s and early 2000’s. This is an extremely dark take on the classic trio of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. While not rated in the usual film sense, I would put these in the PG-13 category (if not higher in some situations).
Each episode runs about six minutes. When the series wraps in July, a Direct-to-DVD movie will be released.
Well, it’s finally here. It’s not much to go on, but we finally get a look at the new Fantastic Four coming in August.

- Alien Outpost

The latest episode of “Big Screen Batman” discusses The Dark Knight (2008), and can be downloaded here. I apologize for the voice quality and the number of times I breathe into the microphone. I’ve been congested all week, and this really is the best I could make it given the time I have left to edit.
After Guardians of the Galaxy soundly cleaned up at the box office, Warner Brothers decided to move the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to March 2016, rather than go head-to-head with Captain America 3 in May of 2016.
I would call that a very smart move, given how hot Marvel properties are right now. It may also signal a vote of no-confidence in the film as a whole, but it’s pretty early in the process to make that assumption.
The latest episode of Big Screen Batman is available here, and covers the live action Batman movie from 25 years ago.
Our discussion of the second “Batman” serial can be found here.
The Big Screen Batman podcast series kicks off today, starting with the 1943 Batman serial. The first podcast is directly accessible here.

Like all of our podcasts, it will also be included in the Bureau 42 Audio Podcast Master Feed.

So, we haven’t done many reviews of the comics coming out of the New 52, as they came out. Fortunately, some of these comics have been coming out in collections, so they’re a little easier to review now. Continue reading →
