Back in the ’60s, television was a lot purer and more innocent than it is today. Married couples had to sleep in different beds, Barbara Eden had to hide her belly button on I Dream of Jeannie and Batman & Robin had to hide their bulges in their tight costumes.
How did they do that? Joan Collins revealed that secret on The Graham Norton Show this past Friday and it is a real wham, bam, pow. In other words a shocker. She said that Adam West told her they used drugs to make their Boy Wonders less wondrous. They made their Batman sized junks the size of one that would belong to a real bat. Basically there was a drug robin us blind of West’s and Burt Ward’s bedroom weapons. What was this unmiraculous drug? She didn’t say and I hope we never find out. Men need to keep whatever inches they have and should not risk it for art.
Granted actors don’t have to deal with this problem anymore because editing can make even the biggest bulge disappear. Which I, as a woman, hate!
Last week the first trailer came out for Bridget Jones’ Baby and Batman vs Superman was released in the theaters. Jimmy Kimmel Live thought it would be brilliant to combine the two for one Batastic trailer. You know what it is so super, I wish someone would actually make Batman & Superman vs Bridget Jones. Don’t you?
On Thursday, Warner Bros released the first trailer for The Lego Batman Movie and today they released the second one. So if you are still pissed that Ben Affleck was cast as The Caped Crusader after watching Batman vs Superman this weekend, then after watching the plastic version of Gotham’s superhero singing his theme song with no instead of na as he has a fit will make you feel better. As soon as you see that you will forget all about Batfleck and George Clooney in the roles. There’s always space to go off as Clooney as Batman!
Batman vs Superman brought in an estimated $170,100,000 this weekend in The US, making it the #1 opening weekend at the box office in the Spring, in March, during the Easter holiday weekend, for DC Comics, for Batman and for Superman releases to date. According to Box Office Mojo, it earned around $40,099 per theater and it was shown in 4,242 theaters. Pretty super!
So super, it makes sense that Jimmy Fallon had the animated versions of Batman and Superman sing LL Cool J’s Mama Say Knock You Out because that is what it did to a lot of other previous record holders.
One interesting note, even though DC comics dominates on the small screen, it does not translate to the big screen. Batman vs Superman has the 4th best opening weekend in the comic book world, Marvel Comics still holds the top three slots.
If you saw The Lego Movie, then you know that Batman was the breakout star. Now, he is getting his own movie next year and I can’t wait for it to come out after watching the trailer for The Lego Batman Movie.
Who doesn’t want to watch someone watching their food cook in the microwave. Seriously, though can that film look any cuter?
The only negative, is ever since I heard Will Arnett voice the Caped Crusader that is all I see him as.
The first trailer is out for Suicide Squad and that is the best use of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody in cinema. How brilliantly does the legendary song work with the premise of the anti-superhero movie?
On that note, I like that between Deadpool and this film, superheroes are no longer good guys! It is about time they were bad because bad is good! And because of that I can’t wait to see this movie on August 15th!
The first trailer is out for Batman v Superman, and I am like all that hype for that? It looks so super cheesy, even cheesier than when George Clooney played the Dark Knight. But I am not the audience for this movie, so don’t listen to my opinion. While I won’t be there on March 25th, I am sure millions and millions of people will be there to see this film.
Oh and I am not mentioning Wonder Woman because she is not even worth a mention.
Warner Bros released the first real tease for Batman v Superman and I want to know when they became villains? I miss the good old days when Superheroes were heroes. Guess those days are over and her comes the dark destructive versions of the caped crusaders we used to know.
Either that or it is the S&M version of them. Seriously, Batman is wearing a black leather mask, he’s chained up, so he’s basically Superman’s submissive bitch. Now I talked myself into wanting to go see the movie when it comes out on March 25th. Are you as excited as I am for it?
Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood was more bad than blood, but that has all changed. How It Should Have Ended animated the music video and replaced the singer and her friends with Batman and several famous movies stars. Movie stars that are a lot more famous than Swift’s friends will ever be. See how many of them you can recognize.
So watch this version Bad Blood and tell me you don’t love this one so much more.
I hope this post doesn’t cause any bad blood between Swift and me, we know what happens when that happens.
David Ayer, the director of The Suicide Squad, released the first photo of Jared Leto as the Joker and I so won’t be going to see the movie. I get that is a more modern day version of the villain, but I am old school and like the original version. This one just looks like the word on his forehead, “damaged”.
