Batman: Bad Blood

‘Cause baby now we got… an autographed Batman: Bad Blood poster! Sorry, the predictable Taylor Swift pun was just too tempting to resist. DC’s latest animated movie features the iconic Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman, but this time around, it’s his supporting characters who are getting more of the spotlight!

Batman vanishes after a brutal fight with a new villain, the Heretic, and it’s up to the Dark Knight’s allies to make sure Gotham City is safe. Just like in the comics, Dick Grayson, a.k.a. Nightwing, puts on the cape and cowl, and patrols the city with Damian Wayne, a.k.a. Robin. They aren’t the only heroes in the DC city, though! Batwoman and Batwing also emerge, and it’ll take the entire team to battle the new threat that not only faces Gotham City, but also the world. If you want to learn more about the movie, CLICK HERE for our interviews with the talent and explaining why we think it’s worth a purchase!

To celebrate the animated film’s release, we’re giving away a big poster that’s autographed by the talent! It includes signatures from Yvonne Strahovski (Batwoman), Sean Maher (Nightwing), Travis Willingham (Heretic), Jay Oliva (director), and Phil Bourassa (character designer).

Suicide Squad movie

Article by Gregg Katzman

Most comic book movies follow a hero – or anti-hero’s – struggle against a big bad. That isn’t the case in David Ayer’s upcoming DC movie, Suicide Squad. Instead of revolving around a good person’s struggle – or at least someone trying to be good – the movie will feature a group of dangerous villains who are now working for the U.S. government. It’s a story that’s full of twisted characters and the first trailer had quite a dark atmosphere – there’s no sunshine and flowers here, just bad people and even worse people. Given the violent characters and the bleak nature of the story, many fans were wondering if Suicide Squad would be the first movie in the evergrowing DC Extended Universe to earn an R rating. Well, it looks like that probably won’t be the case.

Batman v Superman Captain America Civil War

By Gregg Katzman

Welcome to the very first edition of the Midtown Comics Clash! For our first question, we wanted to know which big 2016 comic book movie fans are more excited to see: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or Captain America: Civil War?  While the two movies do have some obvious parallels (e.g. heroes fighting over ideologies; introduction of new heroes), these two movies look like they’ll also be very, very different. The Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe are at totally different stages, and both are setting out to accomplish completely different things with these blockbuster movies. Obviously, Marvel Studios and Warner Bros./DC are going for very different tones with these two films and there’s sure to be plenty of other differences, but if you had to pick one of them, which one would it be? Before revealing the poll’s current status, we thought it would be fun to ask this question to the staff in our Times Square store. Spoiler alert: one movie receives way more love.
