Holy Complete Batman Box Set Robin! Fans of the 1960’s cult classic Batman your wait is over. The complete Batman 66 is officially a box set DVD/BluRay. It’s jam packed with all the BLAMS, POWS and campy goodness we all loved watching the original series.
Recently I had the honor of speaking with the one and only Batman himself, Adam West, to reminisce about his time on the show and what it meant to be Batman. Full interview and box set details after the jump!
Well kids it has been a wild and crazy ride! The first two days of New York Comic Con have been a whorl wind of excitement and running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off! lol But seriously folks I’ve had a chance to chat with the stars of some of your favorite shows and you wont be disappointed!
While I’m a big fan of the DCU Animated films and even put last year’s amazing Dark Knight Returns film on my top 5 movie list for 2013, I have to say, I’m a little tired of DC Animation focusing on Batman and Superman. So I wasn’t particularly excited about their latest effort Batman Assault on Arkham. Boy was I wrong.
I really dig the two current mobile Batman games – Batman Arkham City Lockdown and the game based on The Dark Knight Rises so I’m really looking forward to seeing what Warner Interactive does with the mobile game based on Batman Arkham Origins. The free game will hit iOS around the console game launch (Oct 25th) with an Android version coming later. Generally, I find the freemium model irritating, I’d rather just pay $5.99 or $7.99 and get a fuller experience. Based on the new trailer, this year’s installment looks amazing. Have I said recently how much I’m looking forward to Batman: Arkham Origins on Oct 25th?

Here it is folks, the first official clip from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Pt2. The clip features Batman facing off against a large contingent of Gotham City police and their leader, new Commissioner Ellen Yindel. This is one of my most anticipated movies of 2013 and it hits blu-ray January 28th. If you happen to be in NY, they are going to have a big event at the Paley Center on the 23rd.
Today Warner Premiere has released the trailer for their upcoming animated film, Batman: Year One. This animated feature brings to life the comic book version that was written back in 1987 by Frank Miller and artwork by David Mazzucchelli. Personally I’m looking forward to this version of the Batman lore and am interested in what Warner Premiere has come up with. The current cast members are: Ben McKenzie-Batman/Bruce Wayne, Bryan Cranston-Lt. James Gordan, Eliza Dushku-Selina Kyle/Catwoman, and Katee Sackhoff-Detective Sarah Essen. There currently is no set release date for Batman: Year One but it’s coming straight to DVD and Blu-Ray. Check out trailer below:
