Original ‘Batman’ TV Show Star Burt Ward’s First Day of Shooting Sent Him to the ER

Nowadays, actors are often straight-up forbidden from doing their own stunts so that they don’t suffer from any lasting injuries. Some, like Tom Cruise, have the star-power needed to convince a director he wants to be strapped to the side of a jetliner while it takes off, but most of the time it’s the stunt-doubles doing all the work. Not so for Burt Ward, who played sidekick Robin in the original 1960’s Batman TV show. He recounts a time during production during which he had to perform a stunt so dangerous he was sent to the emergency room.

All the Easter Eggs We Found in ‘The Lego Batman Movie’

The LEGO Batman Movie, now playing in theaters (and Palace Cinema LEGO sets) everywhere, works perfectly well for any audience, regardless of their familiarity with Batman, LEGO or otherwise. For viewers who do know the nearly 80-year history of its title character, however, the film is a treasure trove of references. Following his debut in the pages of 1939’s Detective Comics #27, Batman quickly became one of the most famous heroes in all of comics, and eventually spawned television shows, movies, toys, video games, and countless pieces of merchandise, almost all of which get referenced in Chris McKay’s LEGO Batman Movie in some way, shape, or form.

‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ Review: Finally, A Batman Who Does Play Around

It’s a question that has perplexed Batman villains since at least 1989: “Where does he get those wonderful toys?” Finally, we have an answer. The LEGO Store. The one a few blocks from Warner Bros.’ New York offices currently sells at least eight different LEGO Batman sets, all of which appear in various forms in The LEGO Batman Movie. The film is, like The LEGO Movie before it, a feature-length toy commercial — and, like The LEGO Movie before it, The LEGO Batman Movie is far more entertaining than a giant piece of crass commercialism has any right to be.

DC Collectibles New Movie Line Uses 3D Sculpting to Bring Silver Screen Characters to Life

To this point, DC Collectibles has been reticent to deliver action figures based on the movie properties Warner Bros. produces based on the DC Comics library. There have been statues and replicas galore, but few actual action figures from DC's in-house collectibles team have been of the cinematic oeuvre. With the DC Cinematic Universe kicking into high gear this year, it's time for the DC Films Premium line to make its debut.

The first figures for the line will include a mash-up of Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice characters, all set to arrive in September. Armored Batman and Superman will represent BVS, with Zod, Faora and Jor-El coming from MoS. Now, I know there probably weren't too many people banging at the gates, begging for more Russel Crowe Jor-El figures, but at least his Kryptonian armor makes him a bit more interesting than any potential Kevin Costner Pa Kent would ever be. That's not a big factor in Jor-El's favor, but the guy's gotta take pluses where he can.

Ben Affleck Will Reportedly Direct and Star in New Batman Film Set For 2018

When Warner Bros. announced their upcoming superhero schedule last year, one title notably missing was a solo Batman movie. Sure, Batman was going to be a big part of both Batman vs. Superman and the two Justice League movies, but would Batfleck be getting his own trilogy, a la The Dark Knight? It turns out, yes, yes he will. Latino Review is reporting that Ben Affleck will both star in and direct the spinoff, titled The Batman, which is set for November 2018.

First Clear, Full Color Look at Ben Affleck in Costume From ‘Batman vs. Superman’

The Batman vs. Superman trailer came and went, and we still didn't get a great look at Ben Affleck in the traditional Batman costume (we’ll leave that armored suit out of this). We’ve all seen that black and white promo shot, but what does Batfleck look like in clear, full color? Today, we have that answer.

Batman From ‘The LEGO Movie’ is Getting His Own Spinoff

When 'The LEGO Movie' instantly became one of the biggest critical and financial successes of 2014, the sequel announcement was inevitable. However, in a surprising turn of events, 'The LEGO Movie 2' has been delayed in favor of a spin-off staring the film's hilariously twisted take on Batman. Yes, LEGO Batman is getting his own movie.

An Insane New 4D Batman Roller Coaster is Heading to Six Flags

With Warner Bros. doubling down on 'Batman vs. Superman' and 'Justice League' in the next few years, it makes perfect sense that Six Flags parks would take advantage of the situation and start building new rides named after these iconic characters. And that brings us to Batman: The Ride, which will be opening in San Antonio's Six Flags: Fiesta Texas next year. In short: it looks insane.

Exclusive: Batkid Gets His Own Movie Poster!

Last week, Batkid took San Francisco (and the internet) by storm, as tens of thousands of volunteers worked together with the Make-a-Wish foundation to help fulfill the dream of Miles, a 5-year-old boy suffering from leukemia. Miles loves Batman so the entire town transformed into Gotham City and let Miles (as Batkid) help Batman defeat the Riddler and save the day. He's the hero we deserve and the hero we need right now, so it's only fitting Batkid should get his own movie poster.
