Batman Producer Michael Uslan On Ben Affleck And Controversial Comic Book Movie Casting

Michael Uslan grew up on Batman and after being disappointed with his debut on the small screen in the 60s, he made it his goal to bring a better Batman to life. He acquired the film rights in 1979 but it took him ten years to make his dream come true with 1989′s Batman. Since then, he’s produced every Batman film and has some perspective to share as it pertains to controversial casting decisions.

Batman Is Done With Crime Fighting, Prefers To Sit Back With A Good Book

Photographer David Ngo snapped this photo of a very relaxed Batman during San Diego Comic-Con. He could be taking it slow, waiting in line for the Game of Thrones panel, and enjoying his retirement. On the other hand, the Bat could be subtly advertising for the new web series The Dark Knight Retires, which launches tomorrow. Either way, it’s nice to see Bruce Wayne kicking back and letting others take on the vigilante justice for a while.

The Story Of Batman, As Told By Christopher Nolan, In 3 Minutes [VIDEO]

If you’ve yet to see all of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy but would like to keep up with those conversations your friends have been having for the last few years, here’s a great solution. ScreenRant edited together clips of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises that cover all the basic plot points. I’m of the mind you should invest the 7 and a half hours it would take to watch all three in full but hey, not everyone loves Batman as much as I do.

According to the Daily Mail, Emma Pickles suffered from crippling social anxiety for most of her adolescence, which was when she first started using makeup to hide what she thought of as her facial flaws. But in the process of dealing with her anxiety, she found that her real passion in cosmetics was in theatrical makeup. Her boyfriend convinced her to upload a tutorial to her YouTube channel, and 1.5 million views later, she’s considering a career in it.

If The Joker Were A Child, This Is What He’d Be Saying [Meme]

A while ago, someone posted an image of their 2-year-old’s Joker Halloween costume. For some reason, Reddit just picked it up and made a meme out of it. It’s interesting to see what a baby Joker would concern himself over. Take a look.
