Top 10 Batman Villains From Comics, TV And The Big Screen

July 19th, 2012 10:01pm EDT
Bane
The final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, is upon us; and much like Heath Ledger's Joker the film's villains are once again posed to steal the show.

This time around we'll be reintroduced to three bad guys: Bane, (Tom Hardy), Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) and Ra's al Ghul (Liam Neeson). Both Bane and Catwoman made their first appearances in the original film run that Tim Burton started in the 1990s (and, fortunately, we'll be seeing a much different Bane in TDKR); and Ra's al Ghul returns to the series after his intro in Batman Begins.

But where do the...

Adam West To Make Cameo In 'The Dark Knight Rises'

July 7th, 2011 8:07am EDT
Adam West
Christopher Nolan is delving back into superhero history by hiring former Batman Adam West to make a cameo appearance in new movie The Dark Knight Rises, according to a new report.

West played The Caped Crusader in long running 1960s TV show Batman before Michael Keaton brought the character to the big screen in the 1989 movie of the same name.

The superhero was also played by Val Kilmer and George Clooney prior to Nolan's reboot of the franchise with Christian Bale in the lead role. Bale will become Batman for a third time in The Dark Knight Rises, which is currently filming in Britain...

Russell Brand Left Unimpressed By The Batmobile

Russell Brand
Russell Brand was left unimpressed by Batman's car after getting behind the wheel for a scene in his new movie comedy Arthur.

Brand's super-rich leading man in the remake dons the Batsuit and takes the Batmobile for a spin, but the British funnyman soon got bored with the motor.

He tells WENN, "The actual car, inside, is not as interesting on the interior. It's like a reverse metaphor for the nature of the human soul; the inside was boring. It's a bit scruffy in there."

"I enjoyed wearing the suit because it had (one-time Batman star George) Clooney musk in it. It had the aroma, the p...

Anne Hathaway To Play Catwoman In Next 'Batman' Movie

January 19th, 2011 4:06pm EST
Anne Hathaway
Anne Hathaway has beaten competition from Sienna Miller, Charlize Theron and Kate Beckinsale to land the coveted role of comic book villain Catwoman in the new Batman movie.

A slew of Hollywood actresses were clawing at the opportunity to play the feline femme fatale after movie bosses announced plans for The Dark Knight Rises - the follow-up to 2008 blockbuster The Dark Knight.

However, it will be Hathaway who climbs into the sexy catsuit to bring back Catwoman for the next installment of the superhero franchise in a role previously played by Michelle Pfeiffer in 1992's Batman Returns,...

Edward Norton Laughs Off Riddler Rumors

October 11th, 2010 3:41pm EDT
Edward Norton
Edward Norton has brushed off reports he's vying to play The Riddler in the next Batman installment - insisting studio bosses have not approached him about the villainous role.

Speculation has been rife about who will join the cast of Christopher Nolan's third superhero film since The Dark Knight hit cinemas in 2008. Inception stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy have recently been rumored to be favorites to recreate the role made famous on the big screen by Jim Carrey in 1995's Batman Forever and on TV by Frank Gorshin, who died in 2005.

However, Norton is baffl...

Eminem
A representative for Eminem has dismissed reports the rapper has signed up for a serious acting turn in new movie 360.

The hip-hop star made his big screen debut in 2002's semi-autobiographical film 8 Mile and was rumored to be making a return to cinemas with a role in the sex-themed drama opposite Oscar-winners Anthony Hopkins and Rachel Weisz.

However, a spokesperson for Eminem is adamant no deal has been done, telling Allhiphop.com, "There's no truth to it all."

The rep also laughed off speculation the rapper is in talks to join the cast of Christopher Nolan's latest Batman movie a...

'Community' Recap:'Introduction To Statistics'

Community
NBC announced late last week that Dan Harmon's Community will be picked up for a full season, despite schedule shifts resulting in declining ratings. In just six episodes, the ensemble cast has proven itself greater than the sum of its parts, each character has had a chance to interact with all the others quite differently, adding new dimensions with ease and proving the show doesn't have to rely on Joel McHale and Chevy Chase, because it isn't meant to. The main plot driving this episode is the Spanish class' Día de los Muertos celebration, aka Mexican Halloween, which Sr. Chang and severa...

Best & Worst Superhero Costumes

X-Men-origins
'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' opens this Friday, and could possibly overturn the all three of the other X-Men movies as the best one yet. Not because the other films forgot that Wolverine was really the star anyway, or because there's only so much CGI that a movie can handle before even the performances seem to look animated, but because this will be the first X-Men film to ditch those dorky black latex costumes that made Professor's Xavier's school look like a front for an underground S&M club. In celebration, StarPulse is taking a moment to remember the superhero fads of yesteryear. The ones...

Benicio Del Toro: 'Che Guevara Was A Warrior, Like Batman'

January 15th, 2009 9:38am EST
Benicio Del Toro
Oscar winner Benicio Del Toro has become such a big fan of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara after playing the revolutionary in director Steven Soderbergh's four-hour epic; he's eager to defend the leader from his critics.

The Traffic star spent months reading up on Guevara and is now convinced Che was "a warrior" with a very bad reputation. He says, "I remember Che being included in a TV show that showed pictures of terrorists. I was like, 'Why isn't (President Richard) Nixon there for the Vietnam war?' You'd have to put a lot of pictures of other people there before you'd put Che's."

DC Movies vs Marvel Movies: Which Are Better?

June 12th, 2008 10:00am EDT
Dark Knight
After months of anticipation the two candidates are finally ready to square of against one another. There has quite possibly never been such a sharp contrast the American public has to choose between. One candidate possesses the mind of an intellectual while the other uses gut instincts. One maintains a trim and chiseled physique and the other uses brute strength to get his point across. One is a relative newcomer that was born in the early 1960's while one has a long and storied history having been born in the late 1930's. Are we talking about Barack Obama and John McCain? Well… I suppose ...

Things We Don't Want To See In 'The Dark Knight'

June 11th, 2008 8:45am EDT
The Dark Knight
There were eight years between "Batman & Robin" (1997) and "Batman Begins" (2005), which became a blockbuster hit, and it was no wonder considering the extremely negative backlash "Batman & Robin" received. With cringe-worthy puns from all of the main actors - George Clooney, Uma Thurman, Alicia Silverstone, etc. - and a lack of any plot substance or inner contemplation the previous movies had showed, it seemed like the Batman movies would be given an early grave.

Then Christopher Nolan signed on to the "Batman Begins" project, a film loosely based off of "Batman: Year One" written by...

Film & TV Cars We'd Like To Take For A Spin

Before the advent of Pimp My Ride, there were already a bunch of mean machines that everyone wanted a chance to get behind the wheel of. There were computer controlled rides, cars that seemed to be indestructible, and other vehicles that just looked cool. Here is a list of some of those rides that we'd like to take for a spin.

Adam West (Batman) will guest star as himself in an upcoming superhero-themed episode of The King of Queens on Monday, Oct. 24 on CBS. With the annual Sci-Fi Convention just around the corner, Spence (Patton Oswalt) asks Doug's (Kevin James) neighbor, Lou Ferrigno, to attend the event as his guest in order to up his credibility among his sci-fi buddies.

After Ferrigno reluctantly agrees, Spence spots Adam West in the subway and decides that Batman would score more points than the Incredible Hulk and persuades West to join him at the event. Spence's plan goes awry when he discovers t...
