I haven’t watched the animated version of Frank Miller’s seminal Batman story yet since I’m waiting for the second part to drop on January 29th. From what I’ve heard, however, they’re great and faithful to the book… but I don’t like this Joker’s voice (from the brief snippet heard in this clip). Mark Hamill (who, unfortunately, has stopped doing the voice since 2011) > .
If you watched the first one, and you’re a fan of the Frank Miller-helmed graphic novel, then you’ll know what comes next in the second half of animated version of TDKR, which will drop January 29th. Looks like I have something else to put on my birthday present wish list.
For those who are confused about this version of Batman (or the female Robin), read this to catch up or – even better – cop this. Written and drawn by Frank Miller (of Sin City fame), this is one of the best Batman stories ever done. Part one drops September 25th, but those that know about this story know that the second half – whenever that drops – will be the better part.
Hm… it’s nowhere near as iconic-looking as Michelle Pfeiffer’s take on Selina Kyle’s role, but then again Christopher Nolan will probably do something wild to make Anne Hathaway’s role perhaps as memorable as Heath Ledger’s Joker (I still prefer the Jack Nicholson version of Joker, but I do respect Heath’s as well). The things that obviously stick out in this shot is how her face is all but exposed save for those odd-looking goggles and the fact she’s mobbing around on Batman’s motorcycle, but I’m sure that will make sense when the film drops next summer.
I still can’t wait for this.
It’s only a preview picture, but I’m already gassed for it. Hopefully they’ll make Bane more “Knightfall”-era Batman than that doofy Batman & Robin version. The official site for the film is “up” too, of sorts. But, like they did with the last incarnation, expect that site to fully develop into something creative as well.
I can’t wait for next year.
HipHopDX recently caught up with MF DOOM to talk on a few things. From his impostor shows character direction, retirement of the DOOM character, how homo Batman is, masculinity bitchy-ness in hip hop, his family, upcoming projects (Ghostface, Madlib, etc) and more. Great interview.
DX: What’s the status of the album with Ghost?
DOOM: Now that this one is out the way, progress will be picking up. It’s about 40% done. Forty-two percent done, if I had to say. But then it’s hard to gauge because everything is speeding up now, so it could probably be done real fast, within two months I could have it done. Madvillain seems like it’s closer to being done. I’m working on the shit now. That shit’ll be done within the next two months. I don’t know when they gonna put it out. Otis [Madlib] is the producer, so I don’t really have to do too much. I think on this record, we’re mixing it up. I’ll have more production on this one.

This played before Iron Man came on. Jeebus I can’t wait. I forget who asked how Iron Man was in one of the comments so I’ll just answer here. It was dope. RD Jr did really well. He played the arrogant millionaire perfectly! The storyline was straight, Ms. Paltrow was looking nice, action scenes were on point. Overall it was worth the money. Should be interesting to see where they take it for part 2. Just saying. Now onto Batman! I’m gonna leave it up to my esteemed dopeboy colleaque for his thoughts. Meka?
