Warner Bros. teases “Joker” spin-off with Joaquin Phoenix starring as the Joker and it’s looking freaking awesome already!

First look of Warner Bros./DC’s of the Joker’s first solo movie is here. It shows Joaquin Phoenix without the Joker make-up and with the full make-up on. I’m already very impressed with it and now find this very intriguing!

They don’t show you what Joker’s laugh sounds like yet but I’m sure they will show us pretty soon. Will Joaquin’s Joker laugh be better than Mark Hamill’s? We’ll have to wait and see. I’m sure we’ll hear the new Joker laugh when the teaser trailer comes out.

So Joaquin Phoenix gets officially added to the list of other actors playing the Joker in live action films/TV: Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Jared Leto, Cameron Monaghan and now Joaquin Phoenix is the latest Joker actor.

Who do I think played the best Joker? Well to me it’s a tie between Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson, of course. They were the best. Can Phoenix top ’em? We’ll have to wait and see the movie and see for ourselves.

“Superman I-IV” and “Superman: Returns” are now on Netflix streaming… enjoy Superman fans!

I know there are a lot of Superman fans out there; however, there are still plenty of people who haven’t seen the original Superman movies with Christopher Reeve. Well, all the Christopher Reeve Superman movies are now on Netflix streaming! “Superman: Returns” with Brandon Routh as Superman is also on there. Of course, “Man of Steel” and “B vs. S: Dawn of Justice” aren’t on Netflix, though.

I’m a huge Superman fan. He was my first favorite superhero as a kid and still am a huge fan of the character now. It saddens me though that there are still people who hasn’t seen the Chris Reeve Superman flicks… well if you haven’t seen any of them, I would recommend you do so especially the first two. The first two are the best of the series. I did like III and IV but the first two are classics. I did like “Superman: Returns” a lot even though that film got mixed reviews.

Why are there still people who hasn’t seen the Chris Reeve Superman flicks? A new generation of movie fans, I guess. That happens. If you’re on Netflix and a fan of superhero films, I would recommend you watch these. Superman has been played by many different actors over the years but Chris Reeve will always be the best Superman, in my opinion.

Just finished “Gotham – Season 1” last night on Netflix… such an awesome show!!!

I’m a really huge Batman fan. Just love the characters and the stories. Even though I’m not much of a comic book reader, I just watch all the Batman movies… play the Batman video games and read a few graphic novels. I also love the original Batman TV series with Adam West and Burt Ward. I should read more Batman comics, though and I want to. It’s just that comics are hard to collect these days. I just read the graphic novels when I can. I love Batman ’cause I just love how he’s one of the very few superheroes with no superpowers.

I finished the new Batman TV show on FOX called, “Gotham” which focus’s on the earlier days of Batman… the history of it. It’s kind of like a prequel. It shows the build up of all the characters from the comics. It will show the life of Bruce Wayne before he became the Batman. The show also shows the buildup of all the villains like the Riddler, Penguin, the Joker, Poison Ivy, Harvey Dent/Two Face, Scarecrow, Catwoman, etc. All the Batman characters from the comics are a part of this show except for Fish Mooney (who is played by Jada Pinkett Smith) which is an exclusive character for the show. This show is about the lives of the villains before they became what they became so those characters are not in full costume yet. The Batman is not a part of this show yet ’cause Bruce Wayne is just a kid right now.

This show is pretty similar to “Smallville”, the show about the life of Superman but “Gotham” is about the life of Batman.

Ya know, I hate Jada Pinkett Smith like most people. I can’t stand the Smith family but I’m not afraid to admit that Jada’s character as Fish Mooney is entertaining as hell to watch. Jada as Fish Mooney is really enjoyable to watch… I won’t deny it. Plus, Jada is pretty hot and sexy as that character. That’s some damn good acting, Jada, great job and I really mean that.

I also love the actors who plays Edward Nygma (who later becomes the Riddler) and Oswald Cobblepot (who later becomes the Penguin)… the actors who plays those two characters are really good actors as well. If Ben Affleck ever decides to have the Riddler or the Penguin for his solo Batman film he should get the actors from the “Gotham” TV show that played those two characters. Would be cool.

My only complaint about this show is that I’m not that crazy about the choice of the young Jim Gordon… I don’t think Ben McKenzie is that great of an actor but everyone else in this show are great though.

When will we ever see all the villains in their full costumes? I would predict in the final season whenever that will be, that will be the season when the Batman will finally appear. So when the young Bruce Wayne is all grown up, they will have to find an older actor to play the new Batman for the show.

“Gotham” is surprisingly a great show. I’m loving it so far. I finished Season 1 last night and will start season 2 next week. Season 3 is currently being played on FOX cable TV but I’ll wait for Season 3 to get on Netflix. So glad this show is on Netflix. If you’re a Batman fan too, it’s worth checking out.

Zack Snyder confirmed to direct “Justice League” film which is no surprise…

I had a feeling that Zack Snyder was going to get the opportunity to direct, “Justice League” film.

I know “Man of Steel” got mixed reviews but I thought “Man of Steel” was an excellent film. I never understood the mixed reviews of the first “Man of Steel”. I thought the film was well-done. It was realistic, heartfelt, action-packed, etc. Just like a Superman movie is supposed to be. I’m also looking forward to “Batman vs. Superman” too.

I know Zack’s casting choices are really weird but it’s just his way of keeping his Superman re-boot as original as possible. It’s just his way of trying to keep away from the Richard Donner/Christopher Reeve universe, know what I mean? He’s just trying to keep it different as possible.

Now that they got casting for the new Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). I wonder who they’re gonna get for the Flash and the Green Lantern? I’m sure they’ll find people for those two characters soon.

Jason Momoa in talks for major role in “Batman/Superman” movie but no one’s saying what role he is playing…

“Game of Thrones” star, Jason Momoa is in talks for a major unknown role in the upcoming, “Batman/Superman” movie by Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. For now, nobody’s talking on what role he is playing but it has been speculated that he could be playing a character named Doomsday or the Martian Manhunter.

More on the story, here.

I wouldn’t be too quick to judge that he could be playing a villain character ’cause of his muscular build. What if he could be playing a good guy too? He might even be the next Green Lantern or the Flash ’cause after all… this “Batman/Superman” is setting up for the upcoming, “Justice League” movie. Jason could be a decent Green Lantern or the Flash ’cause both of those characters have muscular physiques too. Just cut Jason’s long hair and shave his facial hair and Jason would make a great superhero! Maybe that’s why they’re being secretive on his role ’cause he could be playing one of the Justice League characters.

Hmmmm, what’s funny is that I just got done watching “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” on Blu Ray and a new Superman casting has been announced for Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” film. Perry White has finally been casted! Laurence Fishburne will be the Daily Planet boss.

Read more on the story, here.

So they’re going for a black Perry White this time? Interesting! I like the casting. I’m sure Laurence will kill it!

Just got the “Superman” Blu Ray set today!!! WOOT!!!

I am now the proud owner of the “Superman Motion Picture Anthology” Blu Ray set! I’m so psyched to have this! You betcha, I’m going to start watching this later today, probably this evening. I’ll start with “Superman: The Movie” tonight.

This will keep me busy for a long while because there are tons of extra footage on the Blu Rays other than the movies. These discs are loaded with extras. I’m pretty sure I’m going to love this set and pretty sure it’s worth the money.

So this is my first Blu Ray set. I also have plans in buying the Star Wars movies on Blu Ray and the Lord of the Rings Extended Editions. Yes, I am slowly starting a Blu Ray collection as you can see. I don’t get that much Blu Rays ’cause they are obviously overpriced. I’m only going to buy Blu Rays of my favorite movies, so I can make the money’s worth.

I’m such a big Superman fan. Love the character and the stories.
