Been waiting for this announcement for years.. now let’s hope they try and at least emulate @jimleeart @scottwilliamsinks and @sinccolor ’s style and not that anime crap haha! #fingerscrossed #batmanhush #jimlee #Repost @thebatforce with @get_repost ・・・ Batman : Hush animated movie Summer 2019. From the DC Comics website..."The third movie for 2019, Batman: Hush will release in summer, and will follow the two-part Death of Superman/Reign of the Supermen as the latest animated movie based on an acclaimed DC comic storyline. While this year’s Batman: Gotham by Gaslight was arguably the last Batman-centered DC Universe Movie, it’s an “Elseworlds” tale featuring a Victorian Era Dark Knight. Hush will find the series returning to the present day and set in a much more familiar Gotham City. The comic storyline featured popular Bat baddies like Poison Ivy, Ra’s al Ghul and the Joker, but it’s also well known for introducing the villain it’s named after—the bandage-faced Hush. While a child version of the character has made a couple of appearances on Gotham and Hush has appeared in video games like the Arkham and LEGO Batman titles, he’s never before appeared in a DC Universe Movie."

Stupid Bats
In January of this year, I set out on a mission to cover the entirety of the biggest Batman event of the 90s, "No Man's Land." Six months and 77 posts on the #CBPNoMansLand hashtag later and we're finally done. In celebration of this occasion, I present you with the cover of the "No Man's Land" paperback novelization (that's how you know this event was a big deal at the time - they turned it into a mass market book) which was painted by Joe DeVito. Then we have a selection of pin-ups from a special gallery issue that was put out in 1999. The artists are, in order: Jason Minor, Rick Burchett, Damion Scott and Robert Campanella, Dave Ross and Jordan Raskin, Frank Cho, Tommy Lee Edwards and Robert Campanella, Paul Ryan and John Stanisci, and finally Darick Robertson. And then we have the final write-up by Batman editor Dennis O'Neil that closed the entire thing off on the last page of Shadow of the Bat issue 94. After lots of other major story arcs throughout the 90s, it's fitting that this was the last big one that Dennis, a veteran Batman writer since the 70s, would work on before retiring. Indeed, "No Man's Land" not only brought about change in the Batman universe with the introduction of new characters like Cassandra Cain and a brand new Gotham, but it also brought about changes in editorial, too. Gone were writers and editors of the old guard like Dennis O'Neil, Doug Moench and Alan Grant...in came fresh blood like Greg Rucka and Devin Grayson who would guide the Bat books onwards to tackle new topics for a new millennium. (Chuck Dixon was the only oldster who stuck around... Lol, ya couldn't get rid of him that easily!) Anyway, "No Man's Land" did have a tremendous amount of filler that I mostly cut out in my synopses here, and not every story thread in this year-long epoch was entirely resolved. But the team behind these books tried their darnedest to answer a question that Dennis O'Neil outlined when the story was first revealed: "What is civilization?" And they did a pretty solid job, all things considered. I hope you enjoyed the last 6 months of coverage, and if you just started following, then strap in. More bigass stories are just beyond the horizon.

With San Diego Comic Con kicking off, new news from @hollywoodreporter : the Todd Phillips directed, @martinscorsese_ produced, Joaquin Phoenix starring Joker origin film now has a title and a release date. The movie will be called 'Joker', and is set to drop October 4, 2019. The screenplay, which was co-written by Phillips and Scott Silver ('The Finest Hours', 'The Fighter') is said to be, as per @wbpictures , an "exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale." I'm still mixed on the Phoenix casting (I don't love the guy, but will admit that he's a talented actor), but the fact that @martinscorsese_ is involved, and the fact that the film is purported to have a paltry $55 million budget, I have to say that I'm curious. A gritty, standalone Joker story set in the 80s, without having to behoove to the DCEU, yeah, I'm into that. I'm curious about the title: 'Joker'. I wonder if this film will take influence from 'Joker', a comic from writer @brianazzarello , and artist @leebermejoart. An excellent read, that story focused on the Joker after he is released from Arkham, but was told from the perspective of one of his henchmen. It borrowed the cut-smile of Ledger's Joker, and is a damn good read if you're into it. Comic Con is just heating up. I'll be reporting all the big news as it comes out. Stay tuned.🃏🦇(Artwork by @willgray_art & @leebermejoart ) #ahealthyappreciation #joker #joaquinphoenix #toddphillips #martinscorsese #thejoker #jokermovie #clownprinceofcrime #jacknapier #mistaj #aceofknaves #batman #agentofchaos #whysoserious #dcextendeduniverse #dcuniverse #dceu #arkhamasylum #ragingbull #taxidriver #sdcc #sdcc2018 #cultofthebatman #thebatforce #historyofthebatman #batmantas #dccomics #everdancewiththedevilinthepalemoonlight

We all know these are going to fly off shelves/pegs, so here’s hoping the following wave will have TNBA Penguin, Rupert Thorne, The Claw, and a Bruce/Dick 2 pack. #batmantheanimatedseries #batcycle #btas . . . . . . . #cultofthebatman #batman #thebatman #familyofbats #thebatforce #batforcetimes #thegrumpler #batforcetom #robindcross #legendsoflegobatman #grampabatman #thetrunkler #gotham #thebatofgotham
"Days of Auld Lang Syne." This was the final issue of "No Man's Land," and if the Joker's horrific murder of Sarah Essen Gordon served as the tragic finale of the saga, then this was the quieter epilogue. The title of this story comes from the old Scots song "Auld Lang Syne," which is traditionally sung at the coming of the New Year in many Western countries and in modern English more or less means the same thing as "days gone by" or "old times." And that is what this issue is all about - saying goodbye to the 365 days when Gotham City was declared a warzone and cut off from the United States, bidding farewell to the loved ones lost and looking forward to a bold new chapter in Gotham. I've put some of the issue's key snippets above. Barbara Gordon attends the funeral of Sarah Essen, sadly musing that she never got the chance to truly think of Sarah as a second mother. Batman visits Lex Luthor to tell him to get out of Gotham, because with the help of Lucius Fox, it's been discovered that Lex has committed fraud with several of the legal and financial documents that placed him in control of the city's rebuilding effort. Nightwing goes to see Huntress, now recuperating in the hospital, and briefly rekindles their one-time romance as the New Year's countdown begins. James Gordon stops by the grave of his recently departed wife, telling her that he'll always love her. And Batman visits the grave of his parents...pausing to look up at the January 1 fireworks as they burst in the sky, signifying the dawn of a new Gotham. We've come a long way, and I have one more "No Man's Land" post left before we wrap up. See you tomorrow. (Art by Pablo Raimondi, script by Greg Rucka for Shadow of the Bat issue 94.) #CBPNoMansLand
Pulled this #batshirt out to wear while we watched TDK this evening. Wanna hear (read) a story? Stop me if you’ve heard this one. It’s pretty sad. 10 years ago, I had tickets to see The Dark Knight at noon on opening day, in IMAX. It was the first time I’d ever purchased tickets in advance online for any film. It was the first time since Tim Burton’s run that I’d been excited about any new Batman movie. Super stoked. Couldn’t wait. Then my baby got sick. Thursday, July 17, the team of specialists at Dell Children’s Medical Center met with us to say — and show evidence that — he wouldn’t be waking up from sedation. He wouldn’t be getting better. They hoped he’d go quickly on his own so that I wouldn’t have to make the heartbreaking decision to pull the plug, as brain death was near and inevitable. So I gave the tickets to a friend, fearing if I left for a few hours to see a movie, I’d regret it. Travis died the next day. I was so torn and traumatized after all that, that I couldn’t bring myself to watch TDK until about 4 years later. We own a copy now, of course, but I waited until a marathon the night of the Dark Knight Rises premier to allow myself the space to watch it (and to sit with all that emotion). Anyhow, I’ve had this shirt for 10 years, too. There’s my Dark Knight story. Cried a whole lot while watching it tonight—some for Heath, some for Trav, some for the tidbits of harsh reality and parallels. Totally worth it. #cultofthebatman #tdk #mystory

Can’t believe ‘The Dark Knight’ is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary already. Easily my favourite of the Nolan trilogy and my 2nd favourite bat-film of all time, just behind the original 1989 Batman by Tim Burton. Heath Ledger steals the show as The Joker, Gary Oldman is awesome as Commissioner Gordon, and both Aaron Eckhart (Two Face), and Michael Caine (Alfred), are excellent. Even Christian Bale’s crazy Batman whisper-yell has grown on me over the years! lol 😂🦇🃏(📸: @wbpictures ) #imnotwearinghockeypads #thedarkknight #thedarkknight10thanniversary #tdk10 #tdk #darkknight #christianbale #brucewayne #batman #heathledger #thejoker #joker #andherewego #whysoserious #twoface #aaroneckhart #commissionergordon #garyoldman #christophernolan #ahealthyappreciation #batpod #historyofthebatman #thebatforce #gothamcity #cultofthebatman #hanszimmer #dcuniverse #letsputasmileonthatface #letsnotblowthisoutofproportion #somemenjustwanttowatchtheworldburn

Sarah Essen, the second wife of Commissioner James Gordon, is dead at the hands of the Joker. (See my last two posts for analysis on her death.) James Gordon stands with his gun pointed at the smiling maniac, debating whether or not to end his life once and for all. Batman briefly reflects on the tragic events of the past year and says that if Jim wants to kill the Joker...he won't interfere. And Jim doesn't, even in the face of Joker's taunts - he just caps the Joker in the knee instead, making it so that the Clown Prince of Crime might never walk again...which the Joker finds disgustingly funny, because it reminds him of how he paralyzed Barbara Gordon. The story comes to a sad end with Gordon finally losing his composure and breaking into tears, supported by the arms of Batman. It's sad as hell. And it's also one of those endings that proves the untouchable character of James Gordon, who upholds the law and doesn't become a killer, even when confronted by the man who murdered his wife and paralyzed his daughter. But on the other hand, when you stop to think about it, this is a goddamn comic book ending if I ever saw one. Everyone knows that the real reason that Jim doesn't shoot Joker is because DC will NEVER let the Joker actually die. He's too popular. He won't even be crippled - the gunshot wound to the knee was promptly forgotten about the next time he appeared. In REAL life, would a man who's suffered so much at the hands of another man actually resist pulling the trigger in a situation like this? Perhaps some would. But many others would be pushed over the edge...perhaps justifiably. Which is why even though this tragic ending moves me, at the same time it also kinda makes me sigh disappointedly - because it serves as a reminder that in superhero comics, the status quo rarely...if ever, changes. (Art by Damion Scott, writing by Greg Rucka and Devin Grayson for Detective Comics issue 741.) #CBPNoMansLand
Batwoman is on her way to the CW network. @variety is reporting... "Variety has learned that The CW is developing a series about the DC superhero that would debut in 2019 should it get picked up. News of the development comes after the network announced in May that the character would appear in the annual crossover event between four of the CW’s DC shows: “The Flash,” “Arrow,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” and “Supergirl.” In the series, Kate Kane, armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope." This is great news for DC Comics and Bat fans. First a cameo in the CW crossover and then possibly her own show. While the movies have been slow to get off the ground, the TV side is moving along at a brisk pace. I can't wait to see Batwoman in action.
