Oliver Queen Finally Starts Wearing a Mask, Just in Time to Meet the Flash

I guess Oliver’s finally tired of constantly having to interact with the five people in his entire city who know him personally as the Hood, from around corners and inside shadows and knows they’ll never guess his identity if they can’t see his cheekbones!

Also we have our first look at Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, the Flash, below.

Peter Pan Is Getting His Own Batman Begins-Style Origin Film From Warner Bros.

You’ll Love Batdad Even More After He Breaks Character for Two Seconds

Sure, we’ve posted pretty much every Batdad video. In our defense, they’re pretty irresistible. Also this Batdad seems like a much better parent than Batman ever was.

Ben Affleck Had Some Initial Hesitation About Being Batman

It’s not often you can find an image of the Dark Knight looking hesitant, but seeing as how he is a matter of some expertise for me, here you go.

BatDad Strikes Again With More Vines of Him Annoying His Family

Maybe this is just my own experience, but I think the most familiar “dad” thing in this video to me is the casual breaking of extremely minor public rules (such as disobeying “Stay Off the Grass” signs) just to freak out your impressionable young kids who think there’s a chance of you actually getting in real trouble. And I think my father would be proud to have his early parenting remembered in such a way.

Arrow Producer Total Whovian, I Knew It

Andrew [Kreisberg] is such a Whovian, so if you were to say to him right now, ‘Number one guest star actor/actress, who would it be?’ Clearly it would be Matt Smith. I can tell you that if there was even the faintest chance that he is available, he would be hired immediately. They would probably hire him to take my job, they love Doctor Who so much.Stephen Amell, star of the CW’s Arrow.

I knew it. The creators of Arrow have already organized a small Whovian reunion by hiring John Barrowman and Alex Kingston as recurring characters, but they’ve got a lot of work to do if they want to complete the whole set. They’re in luck, though, as Matt Smith already has some experience playing another DC superhero.

Batman’s Most Ordinary Adventures

It was David Willis, so far as I know, who first postulated that if slapstick comedy becomes more funny as the intelligence of its victim rises, then Batman is the greatest straight man in the world, capable of making anything funny. That’s probably why the Joker likes him so much. That’s probably also why Sarah Johnson‘s Ordinary Batman Adventures series is so popular.

Legends of the Knight, a Documentary on the Power of Storytelling (and Batman)

There’s a familiar face in this documentary, but I just can’t put my finger on it…

Seriously though, I’ll support anything that argues for the power of stories to do good in the world and for people, and not, for example, that comics cause delinquency or video games cause mass murder. You can check out Legends of the Knight‘s Kickstarter campaign right here.
