There’s a new animated Batman movie about to bring back the nostalgia of the 60’s television show as well as the voices of Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar. Yes it’s campy, but it is campy FUN and it’s just the way we like it. There’s nothing wrong with a little light-hearted superhero action. Not everything has to be dark and foreboding… yeah, we’re looking at you Zach Snyder. So grab a bowl of cereal and watch this Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders trailer as you’re transported back to sitting way to close to the TV. You’ll ruin your eyes! (more…)
Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar have been making the convention rounds teasing fans about an upcoming project. Now we’ve got an actual teaser for the animated project, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders that features the voices of West, Ward, and Newmar. There’s no better way to introduce Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader than Batman and Robin tied up in another villainous death trap set by some nefarious fiend. Set your Bat-feelings to nostalgic and check out this teaser. (more…)
Welcome to the next exciting chapter in All Things Dark Knight! Ok, so maybe it’s the first chapter, but it’s still exciting none-the-less. In the following paragraphs you shall experience the joy and misery of latest developments on the Batman front. Prepare yourselves, gentle readers, to have your mind blown (or at least learn something new).
First up, a very informative interview with the composer of the amazing score for The Dark Knight Rises (as well as the first two of Nolan’s franchise), Hans Zimmer. He and the supervising sound editor, Richard King talk about the many creative brainstorms that went into making The Dark Knight Rises more than just a trail of dialogue and visual effects.
Pretty freakin’ cool, especially if you happen to be a sound nerd. The next portion of the round-up isn’t so cool, however, so brace yourselves for a few words of criticism about The Dark Knight Rises from former 1960s Catwoman, Julie Newmar.
In a recent interview with Yahoo’s The Yo Show (seriously guys? you couldn’t think of a better name than that?) Newmar voiced her opinions about Nolan’s franchise. You can witness her interview by clicking on that arrow-thingy below.
And now, a look into a bit of The Dark Knight Rises’ technology (after the bump).
