Batman: The Complete Series is coming home after a mere half-century wait. Announced last year as receiving a home edition, new details were released today by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, including the November 2014 timeframe. The series will come to Blu-ray, DVD, and in HD Digital Download, the company announced, finally clarifying formats.
All 120 episodes of the series are included in the collection (plus special features), and they’ve been fully remastered in high definition for the release.
In addition, to celebrate the release, WB is holding a panel centered on the series with Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar all in attendance at Comic-Con International: San Diego. The panel will be held Thursday, July 24 from 6:00-7:00pm in Hall H, and will include looks at the special features, more details on the project, and a Q&A with the actors who played Batman, Robin, and Catwoman on the show.
A little over a week ago, Nikki Finke reported that Warner Bros. was gonna bring down the house at this year’s Comic-Con with an announcement detailing their DC Comics movie lineup. This lineup supposedly includes: Shazam (July 2016), Sandman (Christmas 2016), Justice League (May 2017), Wonder Woman (July 2017), a Flash/Green Lantern team-up film (Christmas 2017), and a honest to goodness Man of Steel sequel (May 2018). There has been some speculation that WB may use this opportunity to unveil the first footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is currently filming in Michigan, but isn’t going to land in theaters for two years. Today, El Mayimbe has tweeted that a clip from Zack Snyder’s latest comic book movie is in the cards for WB’s Hall H presentation. If true, what might be shown?

First Look Studios has picked up the film rights to The Three Stooges, but bringing Larry, Moe and Curly to the bigscreen will be no laughing matter, reports Variety. In development for years, the project was most recently set up at Warner Bros. Pictures, with the Farrelly brothers writing the script and attached to direct. The studio, however, let the option lapse.
First Look struck the deal with rights holder C3 Entertainment, founded in 1959 by Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Jerome “Curly” Howard, creators of the Stooge characters. First Look, working with C3 Entertainment, said it intends to stay true to the flavor of the original Stooges, who created their own brand of slapstick.
C3 Entertainment president-CEO Earl Benjamin said he loves the contemporized screenplay the Farrelly brothers penned with Mike Ceronne for Warners featuring the Moe, Larry and Curly characters. via ComingSoon
Like I passed on before, The Wachowski Brothers’ adaptation of “Speed Racer,” the live- action adaptation of the Japanese cartoon series, is currently awaiting a greenlight from Warner Bros. The production has just setup shop in the Burbank offices that were previously home to Bryan Singer’s remake of “Logan’s Run”.
Two years ago Vince Vaughn pitched his take on the tale, one that casts him in the role of Racer X, the long-lost but protective brother of the title character, the young driver who travels from race to race with his family. via Production Weekly
