After months of teasing and build up that a new sequel to one of the most critically acclaimed comic book graphic novels of all time was coming this year, DC Comics has officially announced that legendary comic writer Frank Miller will be returning to helm a new chapter in the futuristic "Batman: The Dark Knight" saga by writing "The Dark Knight 3: The Master Race" - an 8-issue miniseries that he'll be co-writing alongside fellow comic scribe Brian Azarello.
The new book is the second sequel to Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns", which was released in 1986 and featured an aged Bruce Wayne coming out of retirement and donning the cape and cowl once more as Batman. The four-issue masterpiece returned the Caped Crusader to his dark roots, and helped bring the character to new ground that saw his popularity spike. The book would eventually have a sequel in "The Dark Knight Strikes Again", which was released in 2001.
No word yet on who will be the artist for "The Dark Knight 3: The Master Race", but the series is expected to be published twice a month and released on Fall 2015 in time for the 30th anniversary of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, which inspired the Batman films - including The Dark Knight Trilogy and the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

A lot of things started when Zack Snyder launched the DC Cinematic Universe and rebooted the Superman film franchise with "Man Of Steel" in 2013. Many have mixed opinions about the film, and it was pretty dark and lacked a bit of color to boot.
Nearly two years later however, VideoLab has done a video where they've digitally colored bits from the film and made it more lively than ever. C/o Superherohype, Take a look at the video below!

Looks like everyone's favorite wall-crawling superhero's coming back in all types in mediums in the next few years, as a new report from Variety states that "The Lego Movie" directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are being tapped to direct an "Animated Spider-Man Movie" for 2018. This follows the sensational deal that Marvel and Sony made to bring the wallcrawler to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in which a new Spider-Man live-action film starring a young Peter Parker will be released on July 28, 2017.
There's no news yet on the plot of the animated feature, only that it will "co-exist" with the live-action films, but stand on its own and exist independently as well. For more on the story, visit Comic Book Resources and Variety!
The animated Spider-Man movie is expected to swing into theaters on July 20, 2018.

Now showing in international territories and bringing back the hype generated by having recognizable heroes in one superhero film, Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron is pretty much the culmination of efforts that Marvel Studios and Disney have put all their resources into to bring Earth's Mightiest Heroes together once more. It's a film built on the foundation of a strong Marvel Cinematic Universe that has continues to grow and expand with each passing year and movie released, and it is also the final movie in "Phase 2" of the studios plans to bring an EPIC payoff that will ultimately show itself with "Phase 3" and the already announced two-part Avengers sequels in "Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2".
But here we are getting ahead of ourselves and not tackling the sequel at hand: the follow-up to the 2012 superhero blockbuster film that united heroes like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the Hulk together, and it's given the team a new threat that hits closer to home than any of them could have expected in the form of Ultron - an Artificial Intelligence program that was created by Tony Stark to be a peacekeeping tool for humanity, but tragically becomes warped and sets its sights on wiping humans from the face of the Earth.
Since this post will not delve into spoiler territory, the review will be short, streamlined, and sweet.
In a nutshell, Avengers: Age of Ultron is a DAMN GOOD sequel. Everything that fans wanted for a follow-up is here, with a film that gives more action, special effects, and teamwork than what the first film could provide. The mainstays in Cap, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye return, and are joined by new faces in the form of Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and the android known as The Vision. Other special guest stars and familiar faces also appear in the movie that should give longtime Marvel Cinematic Universe viewers and comic fans a sight for sore eyes, and this film does a good job of bridging story elements and bringing things together full circle. Fight scenes are pretty much EVERYWHERE, and while the destruction and explosions take a page too much from Transformers and Michael Bay, there are moments that make it shine like the practical fights and the Hulk vs Hulkbuster as teased in the numerous trailers seen. Finally, Ultron as voiced by James Spader delivers his intended threat and goal with sinister detail. He's not exactly in the same level as Tom Hiddleston's Loki from the first film, but it's still creepy to see a villain who's not only a symbolic dark reflection of Iron Man and his friends, but also a representation of tampering with stuff you're not supposed to be messing around with, and becoming the living consequence of it as a result.
After watching it twice, I'd say this film delivers a SOLID. It's a bang up way of reuniting the entire roster of heroes we've come to know and love through the MCU, and expand their adventure into something that will certainly make fans new and old happy. This is director Joss Whedon's last hurrah before turning the reigns over to Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors The Russo Brothers, and I can honestly say his tenure was wrapped up nicely. I'm also happy that Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye gets a BETTER ROLE in the sequel, so that's a PLUS for Clint Barton fans.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is now open in international territories, and will arrive in the US on May 1.

We all know that Christopher Nolan's Batman films that make up "The Dark Knight Trilogy" were masterpieces and blockbusters that have entertained and presented a version of the Caped Crusader that was grounded on reality. Christian Bale embodied a more realistic interpretation of Bruce Wayne and Batman, and it was a self-contained set of films that wrapped up a journey of a man who wanted to inspire people to make a difference and fight injustice.
However, Spinoff Online (via CBR) has also compiled a list where The Dark Knight has made some pretty bad decisions... 9 of them in fact. You can read 'em here, starting from the ones seen in Batman Begins all the way to The Dark Knight and finally for The Dark Knight Rises.
