    “Gotham High” Would be The Angstiest Comic Book Movie Ever [Video]

    Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy complete may have only just reached its epic conclusion a few months ago, but you can bet that DC Comics and Warner Bros. are already hard at work figuring out an excuse to squeeze out another film and capitalize on the series' success. The guys and gals over at Movieclips Trailers have a suggestion: Turn Batman's origin story into a high school dramedy.

    The 15 Best Exercises from Training Montages

    A remake of 1984's Karate Kid comes out this weekend, where the main character learns Kung Fu. We're just as confused as you are, but, we do fondly anticipate one thing: another entry into the long cinema tradition of training montages in action movies, full of kicks, punches, defeat, perhaps a loss of hope, and then comfortingly certain triumph. But the other thing that training montages have to be full of is things that would make even professional personal trainers raise an eyebrow. We've collected fifteen of our favorite training montage exercises, from the ones that made us go: "...what is that even supposed to do?" To the ones that made us go: "WTF THAT IS HARDCORE."

    Batman Voice Actor Calls Christian Bale’s Batman Voice “Ridiculous”

    Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman in pretty much every cartoon version of the character since 1992 (excepting the lovely Batman: The Brave and the Bold and the awful The Batman, and including Batman: Arkham Asylum), was in attendance at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. At his solo Q&A panel, a fan asked him to give his opinion on the voice that his cinema successor Christian Bale gave to the character. Said Conroy: "Obviously someone should have stopped him and said 'You sound ridiculous.'"

    Rumor: Dark Knight Scribe to Reboot Superman (UPDATE)

    Ahh, superhero movie rumors. What better fodder for nerds in the know to ingest, chew over, and regurgitate until more concrete information appears. And who better to have rumors about than the biggest, baddest goodest, spit-curliest one of all, Superman. The Latino Review, an excellent source for movie information that may or may not prove to be true in the future, has an anonymous source claiming a number of things about the upcoming Superman reboot. Primarily, that David Goyer has been hired to write the screenplay.

    Memo to Mark Millar: Kick-Ass is Not Realism

    I was all ready to ignore Kick-Ass. To just let it slip past my radar and fade into obscurity like Lions Gate's Frank Miller's Will Eisner's The Spirit. I don't see the point of willfully subjecting myself to things that I know I will only find repugnant. But then The Independent's interview with Mark Millar flipped my nerdrage switch. And then, I watched the trailers, and now... here I am. Now I know what Kick-Ass is about, other than, you know, violence. Just as I suspected, it is not an original concept, but to my surprise it is an interesting one. The idea of the realistic superhero, with or without powers, has been tackled over and over again. Watchmen, The Authority, Top 10, Batman Begins, Hancock, the X-Men, Spiderman and more have all attempted, in some way, to bring the superhero down to earth. In a way, this makes me more angry. I'd much rather Millar take a dumb concept and make a bad movie, than watch him take an idea I am honestly intellectually and creatively interested in and make a hash of it. Anyway, here's the first bit that got me: Millar says "There's never been a superhero comic set in the real world."

    Is The Riddler the Villain in Next Batman Movie? We Approve, but Only If It’s Neil Patrick Harris

    The Internet is fair bursting at the seams today with unsubstantiated rumors regarding plot details of the next Christopher Nolan Batman movie. It might surprise you to know that we at Geekosystem are geeks. You might be shocked to know that we have opinions. If you consider opinions to be more interesting than rumors that, while they may be true at the moment, are zipping around cyberspace at a time when the screenplay has not even been written yet, then by all means, join us behind the jump. Since the movie doesn't even have a title yet, we'll call it Batman 3. There might, in some universe, be some merit to putting a spoiler warning here. If you would consider yourself to be spoiled by unsubstantiated "fact from the vapor of nuance" regarding information you will be able to pick up from a single glance at the movie's poster, and a healthy dose of speculation and personal wish making, then don't click the link.
