Ok, this sounds pretty awesome. If you ever wanted to live Batman’s life, DC and AT&T are teaming up to bring Batman fans something truly special for this year’s Comic-Con. In celebration of the 80th anniversary of Batman, DC and AT&T* today announced THE BATMAN EXPERIENCE POWERED BY AT&T, a massive, interactive exhibition that includes the largest-ever collection of Batman-related props, costumes and vehicles. The immersive pop-up museum and gaming-centric installation will transport fans into the crime-fighting world of the Dark Knight and will be open to the public at the Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park at 10 a.m. PT from Thursday, July 18th through Sunday, July 21st.

I’ve just seen the pilot for Krypton (premiering on Syfy on Wednesday, March 21st at 10/9C). It’s pretty good – filled with potential, in fact.
Just a quick teaser for you…
I’m pretty excited! The DC Universe is coming together for a special fan event in Washington, DC. This inaugural event will bring the world of DC TV Shows, Comic Books and Animation together in one pop cultural event. Mr. DCTV himself – Greg Berlanti and folks from all of his shows – Arrow, The Flash, Black Lightning, and Legends of Tomorrow will be on hand. From comics we have Geoff Johns and Batman’s Tim Kring and others. Batman: Gotham by Gaslight will have a world premiere showing Friday the 11th and the cast of The CW’s new series Black Lightning will have a premiere screening Sat the 12th. This WB’s stab at doing it’s own version of Disney’s D23. The full release is below, check out the website for a schedule.
Fan favorite Wonder Woman writer Gail Simone and Wonder Woman artist Aaron LoPresti are teaming up to tell a tale of an even mightier team up – Wonder Woman and Conan the Barbarian.
“I love crossovers, I love Wonder Woman, and being able to bring the undisputed greatest warriors of the DCU and Robert E. Howard’s Hyborian Age together for the very first time is a dream come true,” says Simone.
Wonder Woman/Conan will be in comics shops in the Fall.
BOOM! Studios released their biggest announcement of the week, so far on the company’s Road to New York Comic-Con 2016 – a BOOM!/DC crossover putting Green lantern and Planet of the Apes in a new title to be released in February of 2017.

Alan Moore’s genuinely creepy/scary graphic novel, Batman: The Killing Joke, is one of the most devastating Batman/Joker tales ever told. In truth, the only way to adapt it for film or home video, is to accept that it’s a nasty piece of work and not try to soften it in any way.
Batman: The Killing Joke is WB Animation’s first R-rated movie, so it looks like they’ve done it right. Check out the deeply disturbing trailer after the jump.
