BatmanYTB.com to Downgrade

Site News

Hey all! I've got some sad news, but news that is a long time coming. I'm going to be downgrading the site to a news only site. Most of the archives will be taken down. I will leave what I can with the new space I have. I simply can not afford to keep a massive site like this going month after month. This site has been a passion of mine for a very long time but I have not been able to update the site in months. It does break my heart, however, like in all things, life has to come first, and sometimes you have to let things go.

I've looked for someone to take over, and have not found anyone with the passion that I have had. I've looked at all options, and while it breaks my heart, because of all the hard work that myself, and others have put into it, this is the only logical step.

The site will be here in some form, and some archives may stay. Specially the comics and action figures sections. The rest however, will need to go.

I'm not sure when the change will occur. I want to thank everyone that has worked or helped with the site for their hard work. I want to thank the countless people who visit here, it is because of all of you, the site grew like it did.

Thank you.

First announced at Comic Con '13, Warner Brothers released the official statement..

 
On the heels of the worldwide success of "Man of Steel," director Zack Snyder is bringing together the two greatest Super Heroes of all time—Batman and Superman—for the first time on the big screen. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
Image
The current hit, "Man of Steel," has taken in more than $630 million at the worldwide box office to date, and climbing. Along with its star, Henry Cavill, the upcoming film brings back Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. The new Batman has yet to be cast.

Snyder is co-writing the story with David S. Goyer, who will then pen the screenplay. Production is expected to begin in 2014, with an anticipated release date in Summer 2015.

Silverman stated, "Zack Snyder is an incredibly talented filmmaker, but beyond that, he's a fan first and he utterly gets this genre. We could not think of anyone better suited to the task of bringing these iconic Super Heroes to the screen in his own way." Kroll added, "We are thrilled to be back in business with Zack and his team on this next movie. The success of ‘Man of Steel' is a wonderful testament to the love and support that both fans and new audiences, worldwide, have for these characters. We are very excited to see what Zack has in store for all of us."

Diane Nelson, President, DC Entertainment, noted, "Superman and Batman together on the big screen is a dream come true for DC fans everywhere. All of us at DC Entertainment could not be more excited for Zack's continuing vision for the DC Universe."

Zack Snyder, who made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con? today, breaking the news to audiences there, later said, "I'm so excited to begin working again with Henry Cavill in the world we created, and I can't wait to expand the DC Universe in this next chapter. Let's face it, it's beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest Super Heroes in the world."

The new film brings back Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder as producers. This time, Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas are serving as executive producers, along with Benjamin Melniker and Michael E. Uslan.

Thomas offered, "Whilst our ‘Dark Knight' trilogy is complete, we have every confidence that Zack's fresh interpretation will take the character in a new and exciting direction. His vision for Superman opened the door to a whole new universe and we can't wait to see what Zack does with these characters."

The film is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, and Batman characters created by Bob Kane, published by DC Entertainment.

Anyone who saw Thursday night's Community on NBC was treated to a great episode heavily based around The Dark Knight. After Abed purchases a special edition $299 DVD set of the film, it becomes allegedly stolen from the apartment, forcing him to take matters into his own hands by childishly dressing in a Batman Begins Halloween costume and investigating in character.

The episode, entitled "Foosball and Nocturnal Vigilantism," can be watched on Hulu HERE(external link). Or just check out Abed's awful getup HERE(external link).

DC launches Batman Beyond and Justice League Beyond digital series.

Image

Beginning in February 2012, DC Comics will be launching BATMAN BEYOND UNLIMITED, a monthly print periodical which will collect chapters from various digital-first series. Releasing weekly, JUSTICE LEAGUE BEYOND and

BATMAN BEYOND will come out as individual chapters prior to (and in conjunction with) the collected, 48-page monthly BATMAN BEYOND UNLIMITED print edition.

JUSTICE LEAGUE BEYOND is from the creative team of Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs, adding Batman (Terry McGinnis) to the team of superheroes to combat a Neo Goath-related enemy. And in BATMAN BEYOND, from Adam Beecham and Norm Breyfogle, McGinnis? and Bruce Wayne face an onslaught of Jokerz – and the return of an old foe.

DC Entertainment has previously released digital-first series including BEYOND THE FRINGE, as well as the limited run of BATMAN: ARKHAM UNLEASHED and BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY, which was recently collected in a hardcover release last month. BATMAN BEYOND UNLIMITED marks the first time that DC Entertainment is launching an ongoing series digitally ahead of its planned monthly print release.

Batman: The Brave & The Bold Season 2 Part 1

Batman: The Brave & The Bold

Batman wings into an exciting new era, teaming with a mighty honor roll of DC Comics Super Heroes in this action-packed series. Through the show’s season two 12 Animated Adventures in this 2-Disc Collection, the Dark Knight allies with Aquaman, Plastic Man, Blue Beetle, Red Tornado, Green Arrow, Wildcat, Deadman, Bronze Tiger and Atom to take on an array of evildoers ranging from mad scientists to intergalactic crooks, from power-mad dictators to out-of-control teenagers.

Batman: The Brave & The Bold is a better animated series than some might want to admit. Yes it is a campy Batman, but it’s a serious take on campiness. While you have some episodes like Aquaman’s Outrages adventure! Which is not all that serious, and then you also have episodes like Sidekicks Assemble! The Goldenage of Justice! And The Chill of the Night! That proves just how serious and in some cases dark, that this series can be.

The series does an awesome job of combining Modern Age comics to Silver and Golden age. From modern day Huntress, to Silverage Green Arrow. Even using Earth-2 Robin’s outfit before Dick becomes Nightwing. The three merge together perfectly and proves that everything can co-exist without trying to re-luanch anything to get people interested.

All in all this season improves greatly over the first and it only gets better. It’s a great family show that Batman fans of all ages can enjoy.

All Star Superman Review by: Spencer

File not found.

Grant Morrison & Frank Quietly's acclaimed All-Star? Superman has become the most recent entry in DC's series of animated movies. I got a chance to watch the premiere screening at the Paley Center for Media in New York, which included a roundtable interview with voice director Andrea Romano, writer Dwayne McDuffie?, and voice actor Christina Hendricks (Lois Lane).

For those familiar with the comic, it follows the general story but makes a few omissions for the sake of time constraints. For those who haven't read the story yet: SPOILERS AHEAD.
