Frank Miller is back on Batman for a brand new piece in his Dark Knight series at DC Comics, Dark Knight III: The Master Race. Having already written stories like Batman Year One and All Star Batman and Robin that Miller considers officially cannon parts of his Dark Knight epic, this new piece could be the trilogy end cap for the officially titled Dark Knight comics. Why? Well, considering how many Frank Miller fans out there are still waiting for more Sin City that was promised to them or the prequel to 300, Xerxes, that was even previewed in Dark More >
In Sin City there should only be red banded, rated ‘R’ trailers. But we don’t live in Sin City, we just watch and read about it. Thankfully, the great guys behind the upcoming sequel brought a slightly more adult, red banded trailer of the film to San Diego Comic Con. Once again based off the classic works of Frank Miller, Sin City 2 is co-directed by Miller and Robert Rodriguez. The movie, entitled A Dame To Kill For (after Miller’s second mini-series in the Sin City universe), is slated for release August 22nd. The trailer below is probably NOT SAFE More >
Dark Horse has let loose their list of awesome an exclusives, panels, and signings for this year’s San Diego Comic Con, but one bit remains a mystery. While you can pick up all kinds of cool items at their booth, #2615, and meet all sorts of well known creators…one special guest’s name is hidden from view until Tuesday July 22nd. It’s a teasing mystery that instantly draws my attention, but with no answer in sight for some days let’s focus on what we do know.
As per usual, Dark Horse has a rather amazing store filled with their awesome products at More >
We’ve been waiting 9 years so far for the long awaited sequel to the 2005 movie adaptation of Sin City. Promised to us long ago by the comic’s creator, Frank Miller, and director, Robert Rodriguez, the last film was beautifully made into an almost panel to frame adaption of 3 great comic epics, with a bit of added material from Sin City one-shots. Now the Dark Horse comic title by Frank Miller finally returns to the silver screen with an adaptation of A Dame To Kill For (Miller’s second Sin City tale, and a prequel to the story that appeared More >

Ripped out of retirement by an assassination attempt, the world’s most deadly spy—Black Kaiser—is on a collision course with a stab-happy torture expert and a seductive but deadly redhead.

That is a sentence I never would’ve imagined writing, even thinking it’d be more likely I’d first find the chance to write ‘Ben Affleck is directing the new Batman’ or ‘Ben Affleck is now writing the Batman comics’. But, according to Greg Silverman, of Warner Bros. Picture’s Development and Worldwide Production, Ben Affleck is going to play Batman in Warner Bros. next live action DC Comics film. Silverman made the announcement today alongside Sue Kroll, Warner Bros. Picture’s President of Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution.
So what film will first show case the Ben Affleck Batman? More >
As we promised yesterday, here is the trailer for the sequel to 300, 300: Rise of an Empire. The film, set for release next year, stars Sullivan Stapleton, Lena Headey, Eva Green, and Rodrigo Santoro, with Zack Snyder producing and co-writing the screenplay while the Israeli director behind Smart People, Noam Murro, directs. The new film certainly has the look and feel of 300 down, yet somehow on a more epic scale. If you pay attention to the trailer, there is even the forward thrust kick that we saw Leonidas use on Persian envoys in the first film. Perhaps this More >
Fans of the most bloody and comic based representation of Spartans have been waiting for this moment almost 6 years now, since Director Zack Snyder brought Frank Miller’s classic Dark Horse comic, 300, to life as a live action film. The film version of 300 brought the comic story a new success, as the film grossed over 450 million dollars and turned the director into an A-list hollywood celeb. The film’s style saw more parody than the Matrix, and men and women both swooned over the scantily clad Greek warriors portrayed by actors like Gerard Butler and powerful women like More >
No, Scott Snyder is not writing Batman into a Nine Inch Nails album or a book by Jeff Long or Robert Reid. However, what he is doing is trumping Frank Miller by going back and telling the story of Batman’s first year as a caped crusader…the year before Year One. Batman: Year One was one of Frank Miller’s most famous Batman tales, a post-Crisis on Infinite Earth‘s origin for Batman that ran from issues #404-407 of the main Batman title back in 1987. It was the story of Bruce Wayne’s first year of Batman and has been the basis for Christopher More >
