Trailer-The Batman

A new trailer for The Batman has just been released by Warner Bros. It’s called “The Bat and The Cat,” and it’s our best look yet at the film.

It primarily focuses on Batman and Catwoman, as well as the type of connection they’ll have.
It also includes a lot more of The Riddler, as well as a secret he’ll divulge about the truth of Gotham City, which involves Bruce Wayne!

The trailer is jam-packed with fresh footage, and it looks absolutely fantastic.

Here’s the synopsis:

“Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) — amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens. When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.”


Colin Farrell to star in a spin-off to The Batman

According to Variety, Colin Farrell is set to reprise his role as The Penguin, in a spin-off series to The Batman.

Farrell will play the character for the first time in Robert Pattinson’s “The Batman,” which will be released in March 2022.
After then, the series is said to focus on The Penguin’s ascent to prominence in the Gotham criminal underground.
The series was first announced in September, though Farrell was not involved at the time. It’s thought the series will be an adaptation of the comic Penguin Triumphant, from 1992.

Lauren LeFranc has been tapped to pen the series.
Matt Reeves, the director of “The Batman,” and Dylan Clark, the film’s producer, will executive produce the Penguin series under their 6th & Idaho and Dylan Clark Productions labels, respectively.

Warner Bros. Television would be in charge of the production. It will air on HBO Max, in the US.

The Penguin, a.k.a. Oswald Cobblepot, is a well-known member of the Batman Rogues Gallery, distinguished by his top hat, monocle, and a vast range of lethal umbrellas.
Burgess Meredith, Danny DeVito, and Robin Lord Taylor have all previously played the character in live-action films and TV series.

Penguin will be HBO Max’s second spin-off series from “The Batman.” Joe Barton is attached as the showrunner for a drama based within the Gotham Police Department, which has already been ordered by the streaming service. It will adapt the Gotham Central line of comics.


WarnerMedia is attempting to create a new, integrated Batman universe that spans all of the company’s platforms.

Other live-action DC shows in development at HBO Max include John Cena’s “Suicide Squad” spin-off “Peacemaker,” a “Green Lantern” series from Greg Berlanti, and a “Justice League Dark” series from J.J. Abrams, among others. “The Batman” and its two spin-offs have been confirmed as taking place on Earth 2.

Review-Future State: Superman of Metropolis #1

The DC multiverse has been blown wide open, following the shocking events in ‘Death metal #7’. A new and exciting future begins in Future State: Superman of Metropolis #1.

Due to extenuating circumstances Clark Kent has left Earth and has in-trusted its protection to his son, Jon Kent. Who is far too young for such responsibility, Jon feels the best way to protect Metropolis is to seal it up in a bottle and lock it away. Earning him the ire of its citizens, the military, and Supergirl.

In the bottled city heroes like The Guardian and Shiloh Norman (Mister Miracle) protect it from within, all whilst trying to find a way to break out of their new prison.

The first issue is really interesting because we’re just dropped into the events. Metropolis has been bottled for six months and is on the brink of collapse. The story is fresh, with very vibrant art from Cully Hamner. This feels very different from anything I’ve read before, which I wasn’t expecting. We’re given a fantastic exploration of the bottled city, six months in. The city is full of hate, rage, anger and fear. Reading this through the lens of this past year certainly adds to its impact. There’s always a sense the city could explode, at any moment.

Writer Sean Lewis has crafted a compelling story, with a young Superman completely out of his depth. Jon is no longer the happy-go-lucky kid we once knew, he’s older, jaded and cynical. He’s been given a huge responsibility and it’s absolutely crushing him. Lewis explores the mistakes a human with the powers of a God can make.

First look at Javicia Leslie as Batwoman

The CW has shared a couple of photos from the second series of DC’s Batwoman series. The images show actress Javicia Leslie in the new Batsuit and ready to patrol and protect Gotham City.

Leslie replaces actress Ruby Rose, who dropped out of the show after one series.

She is playing a completely new and original character named Ryan Wilder, whom takes on the Batwoman mantle.

Leslie said:

“I love the fact that Ryan is becoming her own Batwoman — it’s her style, her swag, and her moment. I felt it was important that viewers could tell by the silhouette that Batwoman was a Black girl. With the form-fitting suit and beautiful Afro, we definitely nailed it!”

Batwoman is scheduled to return in the US, with new episodes in January of 2021. An E4 airdate has yet to be confirmed.
