Batwoman Pilot Ordered by The CW
Well, well, it looks like The CW was intrigued with Kate Kane’s first Arrowverse appearance in last year’s three-way crossover event ‘Elseworlds‘; after months of teasing, the network has finally ordered a pilot for a Batwoman series.
The pilot will be led by Ruby Rose (Orange Is The New Black) as Kate Kane, with The Vampire Diaries‘ Caroline Dries serving as a writer and showrunner. Additionally, Game Of Thrones‘ helmer David Nutter, who also helmed the pilots for The Flash and Arrow, is on board for Batwoman in a similar capacity.
Here’s The CW’s description of the potential series: “Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane [Rose] soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”
Dries and Nutter are set to executive produce alongside Arrowverse mainstay Greg Berlanti and Berlanti Productions’ Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns.

Aquaman Takes the Crown
He’s done it! ‘Aquaman’, directed by James Wan and starring Jason Momoa, has become the most financially successful DC Universe movie for Warner Brothers. The picture swam to a global box office total of $887 million, topping ‘Batman V Superman”s $873M. ‘Aquaman’ debuted on the highly competitive weekend before Christmas and was the immediate champ, besting ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ and ‘Bumblebee’. It has yet to abdicate the throne and is expected to remain at the top for a third weekend, even though ticket sales overall will be down, in the aftermath of the holidays. It may seem premature, but at this point, ‘Aquaman’ is also expected to be #1 next weekend, as not many formidable new releases will be arriving.Continue reading

Original Batman and Robin are Back! – Trailer
For the better part of this year (2016), Adam West and Burt Ward had been telling fans of the 1960s hit TV series Batman about an upcoming project they have been working on. Rumors abounded as to what it could be, and people guessed anything from cameo appearances to a new television series.
Last week the news hit that the original Batman and Robin (Dynamic Duo) would team up once more for an animated film, also involving Julie Newmar as Catwoman. We now have the official trailer to give us insight into the exciting new project.
The trailer starts off with a regrouping of the Caped Crusader’s most famous villains: the Riddler, the Joker, Penguin and Catwoman. Batman and Robin team up to stop them, chasing them around in the Batmobile before stumbling into trouble.
Earlier this year, West promised the film would be the Batman and Robin we remember from the 1960s TV series.
Based on the trailer, he wasn’t lying. The film looks like it has the same camp as the show, complete with punchy title cards and comically unnecessary labels.
Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader will be available on Digital HD format October 11 and Blu-Ray Combo Pack November 1 2016.
