Just Announced: Justice League vs. Teen Titans To Premiere At WonderCon!


Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and WonderCon will offer fans the first opportunity witness the animated clash between veteran super heroes and their youthful counterparts when "Justice League vs. Teen Titans," the latest DC Universe Original Movie, has its World Premiere at WonderCon during the March 25-27 weekend at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The announcement is now live on the WonderCon website.

"Justice League vs. Teen Titans" welcomes the Teen Titans to the ever-expanding canon of classic DC Comics characters within the DC Universe Original Movies. When Damian’s over-aggressive tendencies almost destroy a Justice League mission, he is sent to learn teamwork by training alongside the Teen Titans. However, adjusting Damian’s attitude turns out to be the least of the Teen Titans’ troubles as Raven’s satanic, world-conquering father Trigon begins an escape from his inter-dimensional prison. To complete his return, Trigon must have Raven’s assistance – and to accomplish his goal, he spreads his demonic forces across the globe, infiltrating the minds and bodies of the Justice League to do his bidding. To save the universe and prevent a literal hell on Earth, the Teen Titans must rescue – or defeat – the Justice League, and intern Trigon for all eternity.

The voice cast for Justice League vs. Teen Titans includes several actors reprising their recent Justice League roles – Jason O’Mara (Complications, Terra Nova) as Batman, Jerry O’Connell (Crossing Jordan, Stand By Me) as Superman, Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Rent) as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) as Cyborg and Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs, Ugly Betty) as Flash. Sean Maher (Firefly/Serenity, Batman: Bad Blood) also returns as Nightwing, as does Stuart Allan (Batman vs. Robin) as Robin/Damian. Making their Teen Titans voiceover debuts are Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story, Wicked City) as Raven, Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place, The Fosters) as Blue Beetle, Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series) as Beast Boy and Kari Wahlgren (Phineas and Ferb, Legion of Superheroes) as Starfire. Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, Daredevil) takes the villainous center stage as Trigon.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, Justice League vs. Teen Titans is directed by Sam Liu from a screenplay by Bryan Q. Miller and Alan Burnett based on a story by Miller. James Tucker is Supervising Producer. Burnett is also co-Producer. Sam Register is Executive Producer.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the film will be available from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on March 29, 2016 via Digital HD, and April 12, 2016 on Blu-Ray™ Deluxe Edition, Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack and DVD.

THE BEST BATMAN VILLAINS


No matter if it’s on the big screen, the small screen or in the pages of the original comic books 

the caped crusader has always had to go up against arguably some of the most

notorious and iconic enemies in comic history. These infamous characters have been

portrayed in a variety of different ways over the years and these interpretations have been

quite fascinating to watch but which of these villainous bad guys stand out the most?


THE PENGUIN

Recently re-imagined in Fox’s hit series ‘Gotham’ and portrayed rather convincingly by actor

Robin Lord Taylor the Penguin is one of DC Comics’ more adaptable characters. Oswald

Chesterfield Cobblepot III is a particularly eccentric character yet he has the enviable

attribute of actually being completely sane. And it’s this sanity that in some ways makes him

a particularly unusual foe for Batman, whether he’s a disfigured freak or a shady

businessman.


TWO-FACE

Better known as Harvey Dent to all fans of Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’, this

Gotham supervillain wasn’t always inclined to do wrong. Dent was originally a Gotham City

district attorney until one side of his face was brutally scarred following a court-based acid

attack, thrown by mob boss Sal Maroni. This changed Dent in more ways than one quite

literally splitting his personality and creating mayhem in Gotham all thanks to the simple

toss of a coin.



POISON IVY

She made her first appearance in the comic books back in 1966 and this truly villainous eco-

terrorist has a whole host of botanically-based superpowers to help her thwart the good

guys. Poison Ivy is a seductive sexy siren who uses her beauty and her insanity to cause

chaos in Gotham that is until Batman gets the better of her and she is carted off to Arkham

Asylum. The alluring Miss Ivy is just one of the characters features in these Batman illustrations at Royal Vegas.


THE JOKER

Another popular resident in the aforementioned asylum is of course Batman’s most famous

arch-nemesis, The Joker. His origins are muddled and his back story constantly changes

which just adds to the mysteriousness of the man in the clown make-up. He’s one of the

most disturbing and twisted characters in the Batman-universe but it’s his similarity and

unexpected sameness to Bruce Wayne’s alter-ego that really makes for exciting reading

whenever these two battle it out.

All-New Original Movie Features Exclusive Cosmic Boy LEGO Minifigure 





Burbank, CA (DECEMBER 9, 2015) – It will take all the efforts of the Justice League – and a few of their super pals – to keep Brainiac from adding Earth to his miniaturized collection of planets in the all-new animated feature, LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Cosmic Clash. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment and the LEGO Group, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on March 1, 2016 on Blu-rayTM Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD.

The brilliant, hyper-obsessive-compulsive, super-computer Brainiac is combing the universe for new additions to his collection of worlds when he stumbles upon a ripe planet for his taking – Earth. But Brainiac quickly discovers Earth has a “firewall” – the Justice League.  When Brainiac cleverly displaces several members of the Justice League to other time periods in Earth’s history, Batman, Flash and Cyborg must build and use the Cosmic Treadmill to race across time to retrieve their comrades – while members of the Legion of Super Heroes attempt to hold off Brainiac’s assault. Only time will tell in this battle for the fate of the Earth and the Justice League!

·    Featurette - “The Justice League: Caught On Camera” - They may be the world’s greatest crime fighters, but Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Cyborg and Supergirl test Batman’s patience by flubbing their lines, missing their cues and basically stinking up the screen literally!

Batman v Superman Trailer to Debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday Dec. 2nd!


The new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Trailer will debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, December 2nd!  Don't miss it Bat-Fans!

First Look at Mr. Freeze In Costume on Gotham!


 USAToday posted a great interview with the man who is going to portray Mr. Freeze on Gotham, Nathan Darrow (House of Cards).  He gives a lot of insight into his take on the villain.  Fans will recall that Mr. Freeze debuted in the comics in 1959 under the moniker of Mr. Zero.  The character remained rather one-dimensional until Paul Dini brought a new life to him in the Emmy Award winning Batman: The Animated Series episode, "Heart of Ice", in 1992.

The exact episode and date of Mr. Freeze's Gotham appearance is yet to be announced.

George Barris, Creator of the 1966 TV Batmobile, Dies at 89


We here at Legions of Gotham are sad to announce the passing of a Batman legend, the King of the Kustomizers, George Barris.  Fans will remember Barris as the man who fabricated the iconic 1966 television series Batmobile from a Lincoln Futura concept car.  The amazing work that Barris did to bring the Batmobile to life on the small and silver screens still endures today as one of the favorite Batmobiles of fans everywhere.



George's son Brett posted the following statement on Facebook early on Thursday morning:

"Sorry to have to post that my father, legendary kustom car king George Barris, has moved to the bigger garage in the sky," Brett Barris wrote. "He lived his life the way he wanted til the end. He would want everyone (to) celebrate the passion he had for life and for what he created for all to enjoy."

Our deepest condolances to George's family and friends,  1925-2015, R.I.P George, we can't thank you enough for the memories.

Batman Solo Movie May Be Based on Under the Red Hood

Fans will recall that the whole modern Red Hood story arc began with Hush over a decade ago and carried into a story that resurrected the long thought dead Jason Todd.  The Batman v Superman trailer that showed this image clued many in to the possibility of this being explored:


Now, Joblo has some more details worth checking out.  If this is true, then there are a lot of complex themes to examine in the course of one film.  Lets hope that Ben Affleck is up to the task of doing justice to the comic books.  Thus far, not much consideration has been given to the comics from Hollywood, aside from the occasional vague reference.

It was 1962 and California resident Bill Steinfelt found himself in the area where an undiscovered young painter named Mel Ramos, then a teacher, had set up shop. The two talked comic books – Ramos was a collector and Steinfelt had comics – before agreeing, at the end of Steinfelt’s stay, to trade a pile of his comic books for one of the terrific super hero paintings Ramos had in his workshop.

“He had all of these comic books drawn up quite well,” said Steinfelt. “When I went to leave later that month he wanted a bunch of my comic books. I didn’t want to sell my collection, but I said ‘I’ll take one of your drawings and you can have these comic books.’ He had a bunch of them, but I thought this was the best one.”

Steinfelt chose wisely, setting his eye on A Sinister Figure Lurks in the Shadows, a heady and dynamic rendering of Batman that he has had with him for more than half a century. That pile of comic books, which Steinfelt describes as “a bunch of old books,” is now potentially worth $100,000 or more.

“This painting of Batman not only epitomizes the truly incredible talents of Mel Ramos, but also exudes the simplicity and invincibility of all comic book heroes with whom we have grown to love,” said Leon Benrimon, Director of Modern & Contemporary Art at Heritage Auctions, New York. “This work poignantly reveals one of Ramos' five missing paintings from his comic book series, the artist's first mature body of work. It’s got a great story to tell.”

As a California born artist, Mel Ramos has distinguished himself as an Expressionist with a fascination with popular culture and mass media images. A Sinister Figure Lurks in the Shadows is a powerfully rendered canvas with strong impasto and dramatic brushstrokes, indicating the impending action and sharp instincts of our hero. Here, immersing us into his fantastical world and placing our omnipotent hero against a fleshy, cream-colored background, Ramos truly brings Batman to life, ready for action.
