You Wanted Batman? FINE. Gotham is Giving You Batman, Okay?!

I have a hate-love relationship with Gotham, in that I hated it after the pilot, but as it has leaned into what makes it, pardon the pun, bat-shit, it's become a much more enjoyable show. However, there's one complaint about it that has dogged it since the very beginning. How do you have a Batman show without Batman? Well, they're doing Batman now. You happy?

Looks Like Ben Affleck Won’t Be the DCEU’s Movie Batman Much Longer

Batfleck no more!

Well that was over quickly. For all the furor over the "Batfleck" in the first place, it seems that Ben Affleck isn't going to be in the role of the caped crusader much longer.

You Will Wish You Could Watch the Batman Movie in This Flawless Mashup Trailer

We often joke about how much we'd like to watch the many, many movies we've seen imagined by fan trailers, but this is one that we're truly disappointed isn't a real thing.

How It Should Have Ended Goes Stop Motion for The Lego Batman Movie

It's two cartoonishly ridiculous Batmen for the price of one! That price was already free, so this is quite a bargain. Yes, How It Should Have Ended has finally taken on The Lego Batman Movie, and there's a pretty good reason it's taken months for them to get to such an obvious pick: stop motion is time consuming.

Interview: Danny Pudi and Ron Funches Geek Out Over Superheroes and Gadgets on NBC’s Powerless

My parade of roundtable interviews from the set of Powerless continues with a chat with two of the funniest men on the planet. I'm talking about the incomparable Danny Pudi, and the made-me-laugh-so-hard-when-I-saw-him-do-stand-up-that-I-had-a-headache-the-rest-of-the-night (that he does not even feel that bad about!)

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders Clip Shows Off the Best of All the Batmobiles

In my opinion, the 1960s Batmobile's sleek design (and the red and black color scheme!) trumps the overblown, increasingly bulky Batmobiles of the modern films any day! So, I was thrilled to see this clip from the new animated film, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, feature our heroes jumping into that car! Check it out after the jump!
