Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Comic-Con Trailer Is Here!

Batman v SupermanSan Diego Comic Con attendees and now the entire world has a chance to see the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight duke it out a bit in the brand new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice!

Not only we see Ben Affleck (The Town, Gone Girl) as Batman and Henry Cavill (The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Immortals) in action but it’s the first time we see Jeremy Irons (Die Hard with a Vengeance, Eragon) as Alfred Pennyworth,  Gal Godot (Fast and the Furious series) as Wonder Woman, and Jesse Eisdenberg (The Social Network, American Ultra) as the infamous Lex Luthor.

Judging by the trailer, it seems that after the events of the Man of Steel movie, Superman is being looked at as both a hero and an “Alien Threat”, making Bruce Wayne turning into Batman to stop him.

117070This morning, fans were woken up to a delight when Rocksteady confirmed that one of the years most anticipated games in Batman: Arkham Knights would come to stores on June 23, 2015.

The news came by way of the official twitter account of the game. This makes it a three-week delay from the original June 2nd date. Doesn’t matter now as we’ve finally got our release date and fans couldn’t be happier.

As an aside, here is your first look at one of the most recent alternate skins as well as a new description from Amazon for the games main antagonist Scarecrow. The design itself is based on the animated film Batman: Gotham Knight  and is only available to WB Play Members. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up here to get one.

Batman: Arkham Knight brings all-out war to Gotham City. The hit-and-run skirmishes of Batman: Arkham Asylum, which escalated into the devastating conspiracy against the inmates in Batman: Arkham City, culminates in the ultimate showdown for the future of Gotham. At the mercy of Scarecrow, the fate of the city hangs in the balance as he is joined by a huge roster of other infamous villains.

“We Are Robin”, New Incoming Series Post New 52!

w2jlvH6For those of you who don’t know, there’s another shift taking place over at DC with the Convergence event that sees the company moving away from the New 52 era. In return, there will be a new focus back on seminal characters and stronger stories despite continuity. One of the first series announced post-Convergence is entitled We Are Robin and will be written by Lee Bermejo (Suiciders) with Rob Haynes and Khary Randolph tackling the art.

The story will see shades of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman: Zero Year, with the introduction of the main character Duke Thomas who was a young African-American teenager assisted Bruce Wayne in the aforementioned story. He reappeared in Batman: Endgame when the Joker murdered both of his parents in similar fashion to the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Apparently, Thomas will be one of the innovators behind the “Robin Movement” (similar to the movement conjured in The Dark Knight Returns) which consists of teenagers who seek to protect Gotham City. It will also delve into the reason why Batman was so against allowing teenagers into his life as a crime-fighting vigilante.

Bermejo told USA Today that this new series will not see any of the original characters who donned the mask of the boy wonder as he wants to “expand the Robin character past teenage white kids who all look the same.” In another quote from USA Today, he says “There’s that element of this particular moment we’re passing right now, and with a book like this you have a chance to comment about certain things and bring them into the Bat-universe in real interesting ways.” This alluded to his desire to seek inspiration from contentious moments in recent memory (specifically the incident in Ferguson, MO) and merge those issues with his own original content.

 We Are Robin hits stores June 24 from DC Comics.

Batman: Arkham Knight Gets An M Rating

Batman: Arkham Knight is one of this year’s most anticipated titles. With the game being planned for release on June 2nd, it has been given the rating M for Mature from the ESRB (Entertainment Software Ratings Board).

Shockingly enough, the studio who was behind the development, RockSteady, has previously made the past two Batman games, both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City have received the rating T for Teen. Sefton Hill, founder of Rocksteady and game director of Arkham Knight was surprised of the rating and neither him or his team were aiming for that. Here’s what he had to say.

“From our point of view, we never wrote it or made it with a rating in mind. We never did that in the previous two games… We just felt that this is the story that we really wanted to tell.”

With the game receiving the M rating, it is strict policy to stores selling video games that they will have to inform the parental guardian of what type of content is inside before purchase. Both Hill and Rocksteady know that some younger players might miss out due to this. Here’s what Hill says.

“I’m not blind to the fact that [the M rating] does mean some fans will miss out… I don’t want to be oblivious to that fact. It would have been wrong to water down the game and deliver a story we didn’t believe in to keep the game ‘mass market’ or enable it for more people. We feel that’s the wrong way to go about it. We said we love the story and we don’t want to jepoardize that.”

Batman: Arkham Knight will be released on June 2nd, 2015, for Playstation 4, XBOX One, and Windows Software.
