  • ‘The Dark Knight’ Getting Limited 10th Anniversary Re-Release

    ‘The Dark Knight’ Getting Limited 10th Anniversary Re-Release

    Even superheroes get old, so it shouldn’t shock me that it’s been almost ten years since I went to see The Dark Knight at its midnight premiere in my hometown theater, then was so excited by it that I couldn’t get to sleep after I finally made it back home. Now, the film is on the cusp […]

    ‘Batman: Gotham by Gaslamp’ – An Animated Batman Movie (Trailer)

    Jack the Ripper is stalking late 19th century Gotham City, and only one man can stop him: Bruce Wayne, also known as Batman.

Now, it’s the source […]

    ‘Batman: The Enemy Within’ by Telltale Games Coming Soon (Trailer)

    Last year, Telltale Games introduced Batman: The Telltale Series, an interactive point-and-click adventure that let players guide Batman through a mystery that valued deductive reasoning and detective skills over fists and Batarangs.
