In these uncertain times, it's nice to have constants in our lives, whether they be friends, family, or Gotham. It's genuinely comforting to me to know that the show, which is ostensibly about the eventual rise of Batman, is still hard at work making sure it is getting the Batman mythos as relentlessly wrong as possible.
Cesar Romero's take on the Joker for the Batman '66 TV show is iconic — but the very obvious moustache he refused to shave for the role, barely obscured with white face paint, is almost as famous as he is. Thankfully, Hot Toys remembered this crucial detail when bringing Romero's Joker to action figure life.
Video: This fan-made trailer from Stryder HD makes a compelling argument that it would have been pretty cool to see the two '80s cinematic superheroes face-off on-screen. Bonus points for realising Lex's plan to use Zod's body to create his own Kryptonian in BvS lines up eerily well with Lex's plan to make his own whatever-the-hell-Nuclear-Man-was from one of Superman's hairs in The Quest for Peace.
Last week, the news came out that Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) would direct a Justice League Dark movie, with a script from Guillermo del Toro, who would be sticking around to produce. All of that sounds like great news, but there's just one issue: The looming presence of Warner Bros. over it all.
Batman Arkham is Rocksteady's first PlayStation Virtual Reality game, and it will be one of PlayStation VR's launch titles, available in October. We had a play at E3 this year, and confirmed it's probably the closest any of us will ever get to being Batman. We'll get to pop on the cowl, play with gadgets, solve a crime and find a purpose for our dusty Move controllers.
Here's the latest behind-the-scenes look at Batman Arkham VR.
By now, there's a Guinness World Record for just about any random accomplishment you can think of, including "most functional gadgets on a cos-play suit". This record is currently held by Ireland's Julian Checkley, who managed to cram 23 different contraptions into his impressive Batsuit.
Video: Even if you didn't see Suicide Squad and somehow escaped the reviews of it and, like, also didn't hear the horror stories about Jared Leto's Joker, you'd already know that it would never have topped Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight anyway. Not only is Ledger's Joker an iconic performance, his character was also the most perfect antagonist there's ever been for Batman (or maybe, for any superhero). Lessons from the Screenplay analyses what an antagonist should be and shows how The Dark Knight's Joker nails it perfectly.
