Clooney Issues 56,342nd Apology for ‘Batman & Robin’


Batman & Robin was nearly 20 years ago now. Yeah. In that time George Clooney has become an accomplished writer, director, producer and an Academy Award-winning actor. He’s worked with a variety of collaborators like Steven Soderbergh, the Coen Brothers, Alexander Payne, and Alfonso Cuaron, hardly the sort of hackery that became associated with B&R director Joel Schumacher back in the summer of ’97. You might say that Batman & Robin was Clooney’s original sin, and he’s paying the price for it these last two decades. So in the interest of continued penance, Clooney was once again called to apologize while doing a round of promotion for his new movie Tomorrowland. (more…)

There’s a couple new details about the suit that this picture reveals, The color of course, and more importantly, the new utility belt. Just getting a look in the light of day is worth it.

We’ve got the first on set pictures of Will Smith as Deadshot in David Ayers‘ upcoming Suicide Squad. Pictured above is the Batman: Arkham Origins video game version of the character, which I suspect will be the one that translates onto the big screen.

If you’re bored and want a little excitement in your nerdy life, just go down to your local comic shop, stroll in and loudly proclaim that there’s no way that Batman could ever beat Superman, or the Thing is stronger than the Hulk, or cross the DC/Marvel lines with one of my favorites – Who wins in a Namor/Aquaman fight? Bring some snacks, you’re most likely going to have someone take the bait and start a lively discussion. With Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, the old Batman versus Superman fight topic is back on the top of the Who Would Win arguments happening in comic book shops, the back of school buses, and the Internet. Who better to answer the question of why Superman doesn’t just use his incredible powers to take out Batman in a single blow is Henry Cavill, that man who plays Superman himself. (more…)


When the trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice leaked onto the Internet days before the big special screenings planned around the United States, many wondered if Warner Bros. would follow Marvel‘s example in the wake of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer leak by releasing the official trailer online, (Curse you Hydra!) and showing additional footage at the big screenings.
