Nipples On The Batsuit!!?? We Finally Know Why!

Walk into any comic shop across America and it isn’t hard to find someone who has something to say about Joel Schumacher’s horrid attempt at the Dark Knight and his oddly designed bat-nipples. Ok, they were regular nipples, but what the hell were they doing on the outside of his and Robin’s costumes? That’s the question that many a fan screamed at the screen when they saw the atrocity that was 1997’s, Batman & RobinFinally, after much speculation and debate, fans have an answer from the creator himself. Schumacher finally addressed the nipples!

The director of the hit film District 9, Neil Blomkamp has come out with some new information regarding the film’s potential sequel/spinoff fans have been clamoring for since the film was released in 2009. Additionally, Blomkamp has killed all rumor and speculation about the state of Alien 5, the Alien film he had been working on for a number of years.

Last year’s Ghostbusters reboot was not a critical or commercial success, which is likely the reason the studio has opted out of doing a sequel anytime soon. The film’s poor performance has also destroyed any chances of spinoff films, which were initially planned. It seems the all-female driven run of the popular ’80s franchise wasn’t up to par and co-writer/executive producer/original star Dan Aykroyd has come out swinging for director Paul Feig.

He may live in a pineapple under the sea, but that doesn’t mean we won’t get to see another season of this beloved children’s (and immature adult’s) television series on Nickelodeon! SpongeBob SquarePants, the longest-running animated series on the children-themed network has been greenlit for a 12th season and it will debut on the series’ 20th anniversary, which is unfortunately a couple of years away. Fear not though, the studio is knocking out an entire 26-episiode season and all of our favorite animated squids, crabs, whales, snails, and squirrels will be back!

Judge Dredd Mega-City One

For anyone who has ever sat down and read a single issue of 2000 AD’s Judge Dredd comic, they knew the first film released in 1995 starring Sylvester Stallone was a far cry from the source material. Thankfully, Hollywood got its act together in 2012 and released Dredd starring Karl Urban in the titular role. Though the film was not successful financially, it has acquired a cult following that has demanded a return to Mega City One to include Urban whose portrayal was comic book worthy. On May 10th, it was announced that our favorite Street Judge would be returning to television in the series Judge Dredd: Mega-City One, but Urban’s involvement and details about the series were scant… until now!

Comic fans who have been reading books for a number of years know that it’s not all about tights, round shields, powerful armor, and magic hammers–there is a whole world of books out there dealing with magic, heaven & hell, life, death, and everything in-between. The DC Vertigo imprint has been gaining in popularity across media platforms lately due to successful translations of series like iZombie, Preacher, Lucifer, and Constantine with several films such as A History of Violence, Stardust, and V for Vendetta to name a few.

Don’t get us wrong–we aren’t complaining about these missing titles, but even though development is underway for Y: The Last Man (Which we are incredibly excited to see), there are some Vertigo books that desperately need the small screen treatment. Of the dozens of books the company has put out over the years, we have come up with the following five that need to be developed for the small screen. (more…)

Adult Swim pulled a fast one on fans when they ‘leaked’ the first episode for Rick and Morty’s third season as a reverse April Fool’s gag, but fans have been eagerly awaiting more of the hit show. Adult Swim has granted us all a reprieve from the disturbingly long wait for more content and it came in the form of a surprise tie-in with the release of Alien: Covenant. While that film isn’t receiving the greatest reviews right now, it fits perfectly into a universe that sees a brilliantly deranged alcoholic scientist who travels the cosmos getting into wacky adventures.  (more…)

Bruce Wayne still has some training to do on his path to becoming the Dark Knight so it’s a good thing FOX has decided to renew the series for its fourth season. The announcement came last night as many of the major networks finally let the public know which of their favorite shows were getting the axe and which were going to continue. Gotham is nearing the end of its third season with only five episodes to go so the news of the renewal comes at just the right time to ensure fans won’t be left with a series cliffhanger (something FOX is notorious for doing with their series).

The CW has announced their hit Zombie-themed crime comedy is being renewed for a fourth season and the horde couldn’t be happier! The series is currently running its third season and has run through six of its planned 13 episodes before its scheduled to take a break following the season finale on June 27th. The move to renew the series is a bit surprising given the numbers being drawn in, but The CW doesn’t appear to be worrying too much about that and iZombie fans couldn’t be happier.
