AT THE COMIC BOOK MOVIES: ROBIN in the BATMAN Movies (Part 1) "The Problems"

I'm going to get straight into it because this is one of those topics that does not need a big elaborate intro. The topic at hand of course is....."Should ROBIN show up in the new BATMAN movie franchise?" This has been a big subject since "BATMAN BEGINS" was released back in 2005. The internet and comic book communities are basically at a stalemate when it comes to this very touchy subject. There's a "Wayne Manor" full of people who absolutely feel ROBIN should not be included in this new Bat-Movie Universe, but there is also a "Bat-Cave" packed with people who want to see ROBIN.

Comic Con Update

Ok so Marvel is the best at what they do. This is a fact and i dare anyone to deny it. Anyways, this weekend was/is the Comic Con out at San Diego. The big daddy of cons if you will. Reading up on what is coming i was not surprised by the crap DC is going to do. But Marvel is doing sweet things! The main thing that caught my attention is War of Kings.
As you all should know the Kree and Skrulls were involved in the Annihilation events as well as the current invasion. Where are the Shi'Ar? Well they have arrived. Recent events have them ruled by Vulcan, brother to Cyclops and Havok. Read more »

It was an ok week. One huge X milestone and more Skrulls. A lot of them! Spoilers to come.

•the Exterminators 30 – I am sad to see this go. I mean you can’t really go on with a series on bugs but it was a good run and I hate to see them go. Damn vertigo does good stuff.

•Green Lantern Corps 26 – This is the gem of DC. No not this particular book but group. If it is green in DC then it is more then likely a good read. This book surprised me and in good ways. Get on this damn series now! Read more »

It was truly a good damn week. Spoilers to come.

•Ultimate Origins 2 – I normally read books in company alphabetical order. Yes I know, I am a geek. But a big geek that can get away with whatever I usually feel like. All that aside I saw the Gabriele Dell’otto cover and just had to read it. His covers are freaking great. I loved his stuff during Secret Wars a while back. Anyways this is a truly great series. How is it that Marvel is pulling off 2 events while DC is struggling with 1? Read more »
