Rumor: Could Joseph Gordon-Levitt Play Batman In The ‘Justice League’ Movie?

The Dark Knight Rises - Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake

Yesterday, our magnificent man with the news eelyajekiM reported that next summer’s Superman reboot Man of Steel may play a vital role in leading into the long-awaited 2015 release of Justice League. If that’s the case, then Warner Bros. has decided to take a page from the Marvel Studios’ playbook and use their solo superhero films to build up to the team-up epic, a formula that proved to be a surefire winner when you look at the grosses for The Avengers.

Anyone who’s been following the development and production of Man of Steel and its dovetailing with the release of The Avengers could have guessed by now that the new Superman, played by Henry Cavill, would naturally be leading the League when they make their big screen bow in three summers, around the same time The Avengers 2 hits movie screens. What wasn’t so obvious was who the studio would pick to play Batman seeing as how the Christopher Nolan-directed Dark Knight trilogy has concluded and Christian Bale doesn’t appear to be willing to be a team player in the Justice League since Nolan won’t be involved.

Superhero Economics: A Financial Comparison Between Batman and Spider-Man

Batman/Spider-Man Infographic

When dealing with superheroes, it usually comes down to who would beat who in a one-on-one fight. Good guys, bad guys—we just can’t help but wonder who’d prove to be the best of them all.

But how often have you wondered about the financial status of your favorite comic book characters? Not very often, in all likelihood. And if it is often, it’s time for you to take a vacation. Somewhere nice. I recommend Maui. It’s lovely.

Anyway…a new infographic called Superhero Economics does just that, comparing the money earned and money spent numbers for the regular everyday gentlemen who become DC Comics’ Batman and Marvel’s Spider-Man, Bruce Wayne and Peter Parker. We all know who would win in a money fight between the two characters, but the comparison looks at who the men are, what they do, how much they spend, and, perhaps most interestingly, how many years it would take them to make the amount of money all of their movies combined have made in worldwide box office.

Check out the Superhero Economics infographic below.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

A few weeks ago Warner Bros. and DC Comics Premiere Movies formerly announced the voice cast for their upcoming two-part direct-to-video animated adaptation of the classic 1986 DC miniseries Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, one of the most popular and influential Batman stories ever created and a cornerstone of the revisionist superhero comic movement that took shape in the late 1980s.

Warner and DC have included a special 13-minute preview of The Dark Knight Returns in the supplementary features on their latest DTV animated offering Superman Vs. The Elite. You can check out the preview here below.

The Dark Knight Rises

A few days ago we got our first look at the cover art and track listing for the forthcoming release of Hans Zimmer‘s orchestral soundtrack to The Dark Knight Rises was released.

Today we have for you a selection of 30-second samples from each of the album’s fifteen tracks. You can listen to them here below.

The chilling chant that serves as the theme for the film’s villain Bane (Tom Hardy) is quite prevalent in several of these tracks, but in the final track “Rise” there is a subtle callback to a piece used to underscore the death of Bruce Wayne’s (Christian Bale) parents in the early moments of Batman Begins. A hint of rumors to come true, perhaps?

Batman & Robin #16With the grand finale of Grant Morrison‘s epic run on DC Comics’ Batman and Robin, along comes the birth of a brand new status quo in the DC Universe, and if you haven’t read Batman and Robin #16, which came out today, go get the issue, read it, and come back, because SPOILERS

In the issue, Bruce Wayne holds a press conference where he reveals that he is the main funding officer for The Dark Knight.

Although, some mainstream media used headlines and stories to make it appear as though Bruce Wayne declared himself as The Batman, he simply said that he had been secretly supporting and funding his technology, as well as creating a new division of Wayne enterprises called Batman, Incorporated, which just so happens to be the title for the upcoming Grant Morrison Batman comic.

DC Comics: Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne, Issue #1 of 5Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #1
Writer: Grant Morrison
Penciler: Chris Sprouse
Inker: Karl Story
Colorist: Guy Major
Letterer: Jared K. Fletcher
Price: $3.99
DC Comics
Release date: May 12, 2010

I suppose I should talk about this issue, since it is about to show how Bruce Wayne returns to our time following the events at the end of Final Crisis, but honestly, it’s hard for me to get that excited about it. This is a fine issue, but I think I was expecting the story to get off to a stronger start, and this wasn’t what I was expecting.

As the cover shows, most of Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #1 is Batman as a caveman fighting other cavemen at the dawn of man. Bruce Wayne joins up with a bunch of cavemen and then fights a bunch of evil cavemen lead by the immortal caveman himself, Vandal Savage, gaining a caveman Robin (who somehow finds a domino mask in the bush apparently) before getting sent further into the future.

Bruce Wayne Heading Back To The DC Universe

2009-12-09-piratebrucewayneBruce Wayne has had a rough couple of years in the DC Universe. He was brainwashed, which caused his mind to switch to Batman auto-pilot mode, adopted a green and purple costume, apparently got killed, got replaced, and later misplaced in time.

But Bruce is on his way back, according to writer Grant Morrison, who will pen Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne, a six-issue mini-series due out in 2010 with a rotating cast of artists.

Morrison did an interview with USA Today about the character’s return to regular story continuity in which he explains that the series will chronicle Bruce’s journey through different periods in time so that he can reach the present day.

‘Batman: Battle For The Cowl’: Who Will Take Up The Mantle?

The Geeks of Doom   |  @   |

By Totally Bitchin’ (aka Eric Drumm)

Who is going inherit the Bat mantle?

With Batman RIP heading towards its dramatic (and long awaited for some!) conclusion, Bruce Wayne may be going bye bye. Is he gonna die? Is he gonna retire? Will he descend into madness, never to be heard from again? Grant Morrison knows, but he ain’t telling.

With all controversy going around, aren’t we forgetting one major dilemma? With the Bat mantle vacated, who is going to step up and take control of Gotham?

Following Batman RIP is the much hushed “Battle For the Cowl” arc. The title suggests that there is a slugfest on the horizon between the Bat boys to see who gets the cape. Who can even pretend they are qualified to replace the Dark Knight? A few are real contenders, but there are a few underdogs that could potentially take the title.

Here are a few of the folks we think just might take it. But don’t listen to us! Sound off with your own theories in the comments!
