I’ve been wanting to do this column for weeks now, and in that amount of time some interesting developments have happened to the solo Batman movie in development starring Ben Affleck. Affleck first dropped out of being the director of the film allegedly because he didn’t think he could handle starring AND directing...which sounds pretty simple. Then Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves was apparently being courted for the job, then some rumors of Affleck being (ALREADY?) tired of being The Bat sprouted around the internet....and now apparently the Reeves thing has fallen apart. The movie could very well be in limbo at this point. Read more...

Well, whether you loved it, hated it or just thought it was okay, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice made its mark at the box office and drew in record numbers worldwide. And it’s confirmed that now Ben Affleck (the guy in the bat-suit, in case you didn’t know) and DC big shot writer Geoff Johns will be writing the screenplay for a solo film starring Affleck’s Batman. But with so many Batman films in the past, what could they possibly do with the caped crusader that already hasn’t been done?! Read more...

September 27th was Batman Day, a day where every year generations of fans of the Caped Crusader celebrate the awesome pop culture icon. Just what is it about The Bat that has made him the most popular superhero of all time? Is it the badass costume? The fighting skills? Those “wonderful toys”? Maybe it’s his super intelligence or detective skills? Well, it’s ALL of those things, really. But I think most of all, it’s the relatable nature that the character exudes. Without any real powers, Batman is pretty much a normal person. Read more...

WARNING: THIS COLUMN CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! It’s very rare when I feel the urge to write a review for a video game. Usually I play them, complete them (to my liking...I’m not always a completionist but I enjoy at least finishing the main story) and go onto the next one. And then just recently I completed Batman: Arkham Knight, Rocksteady’s latest (and supposedly final) installment in their Arkham saga, at 100%. While the game gives you the option of ending things once the main story is over, I got word pretty quickly that if you finish the game at 100% (basically capturing every major villain at large and making Gotham once and for all), you get a “super special” awesome ending.

There are many iconic images that stretch back through Batman lore and we each have our own favourite pieces. For some, it could be the Dark Knight illuminated by a lightning bolt from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. For others, it could be the Joker wielding his Joker Fish from Detective Comics #475, Catwoman and Batman embracing in Hush, and some may cite the Bat Armour from the epic Night of the Owls. For me though, the full page spread of Batman broken across Bane’s immense knee is one of the most evocative and ultimately chilling images in all of the Caped Crusader’s adventures. Read more...

Amazing-Spider-Man-1-variant-cover-April-2014-no-logoSo, it’s official! The original AMAZING, friendly neighborhood, ever-lovin’ Spider-Man will be back in April. Some fans are elated to see Peter Parker back in control of his body, and some prefer the darker, edgier Superior Spider-Man. It doesn’t really matter which Spidey floats your boat, it’s HOW they will resurrect Pete that really matters doesn’t it? Fans are sort of tired of the “comic book death” scenario...basically because it’s so predictable. I mean, it’s usually the same old story: hero dies, hero is temporarily replaced, hero somehow comes back. Wash, rinse, repeat. It’s how it is ALWAYS done. Sometimes though, a superhero or even a villain, is brought back and their triumphant return is sensible, entertaining and well, just plain bad-assed. In celebration of Pete’s AMAZING return, I will take a look at examples of comic book resurrections that were done right, and of course the ones that were just, let’s say...not all that necessary.

 I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but Hollywood has actually come to their senses. Sure, there was a movie based on the Battleship board game made last year, about an alien invasion. And the John Carter: Warlord of Mars film was a complete debacle (they must have forgot to put the whole WARLORD OF MARS part into the title. Because a movie about a guy that becomes a WARLORD ON MARS must not sound like a cool movie people may want to see), but I think everyone will agree with me when I say that comic book movies have improved over the last decade. I’d like to think that it is because film companies are slowly beginning to realize that comic book fans need to actually enjoy these films for them to at least be a bit successful. The non-geek movie goers? I think the majority of them will at least respect these films more or less if they are at least pleasing to watch for fans of the material. It’s logic. It’s all it is.

 The Bleeder’s Search for the Greatest Renderings of Iconic Characters Begins HERE! It’s great to get control back of The Bleed! Although, I must admit having a shadowy mystery woman with piercing eyes hosting my column was pretty rad. I will never complain about such things. I’d like to thank DarXide for bleeding all over those horrible celebs, and giving us all that disturbing mental images of Puck fighting Snooki and Pam Anderson wrestling Power Girl. She managed to mention both comically enourmous breasts and midgets...well played, DarXy...well played. I’m so proud of you. *sniff* No honestly, I was honored and flattered to death. And all of the Identity Theft Week columns were spectacular, I implore all the Bleederz to go back and read and reread EVERY single one. And our amazing Editor-In-Chief GranDammster Flash was the genius that thought it all up! Read more...
