Gotham: 10 Hollywood Comic Book Movies Faithful To The Source Material

 

GOTHAM

AllRoundVids HD

IN FRANCHISES, COMIC VALUES AND COLLECTIONS

In our article, we list 10 important Hollywood movies that faithfully adapted the source material from the comics. Though blockbuster success is not the most important factor, their impact on cinema and the visual arts is undeniable. Moreover, they helped pioneer other comic book movies and shared cinematic universes.

Below, you can read our Top 10 Hollywood comic book movies.

10. CAPTAIN MARVEL (2019)

With the popularity of the superhero genre, Captain Marvel (2019) was a welcome surprise. As a true cosmic movie, the film takes its subject matter seriously. Though Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck add comedic moments. Perhaps, few Marvel Cinematic Universe films pay as much attention to their titular heroine’s origin story. Certainly, Carol Danvers’ Kree origins are central to the superheroine both in the comics and the movie. At Refinery29, the critic points out the major change is in Mar-Vell’s gender swap from male to female.

WHY IT’S ON THIS LIST: And the movie belongs on this list for the cast, the original use of the superhero genre, the impressive visual effects, the movie production and the top-notch acting.

9. BATMAN (1989)

To begin, the Batman (1989) was a cinematic event for the period. Certainly, the movie is indebted to the dark and gritty graphic novels of the 1980s such as Batman: The Killing Joke or Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. Though the film successfully adapts Batman’s noir atmosphere from the source material, it alters elements of its mythos. For instance, the Joker killed Bruce’s parents and Batman is willing to kill.

WHY IT’S ON THIS LIST: And the movie belongs on this list for the cast, the ground-breaking use of the superhero genre, the serious Batman treatment, the pop-culture impact and the top-notch acting.

8. SPIDER-MAN (2002)

Incredibly, Spider-Man (2002) captivated audiences at the beginning of the twenty-first century. In fact, the Sam Raimi films were a cultural sensation out-performing the original Superman: The Movie at the box office. Though Spider-Man 3 was not well received. At the time, audiences loved the first Spider-Man movie. And director Sam Raimi’s faithful rendition of the Spider-Man world won fans though the adaptation of his super powers and the loss of web-shooters created controversy.

WHY IT’S ON THIS LIST: And the movie belongs on this list for the cast, the original use of the superhero genre, the pop-culture impact, the authentic Spider-Man universe and the top-notch acting.

7. SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE (1978)

Certainly, Superman: The Movie (1978) is the original superhero blockbuster. When the movie was released, general audiences were charmed by the hero’s enthralling story. Moreover, Christopher Reeve’s charismatic performance carried the movie. Importantly, the movie actually changed the Superman mythos instead of simply adapting it. In fact, the Krypton backstory was a new addition from the Donnerverse that changed its depiction in comics.

WHY IT’S ON THIS LIST: And the movie belongs on this list for the cast, the first blockbuster comic book movie, the pop-culture impact, the charismatic Christopher Reeve performance, the re-invention of the Superman mythos and the top-notch acting.

6. THOR (2011)

In terms of cinematic achievement, Thor (2011) is a visual and aesthetic masterpiece. Certainly, the movie skyrocketed the former B-lister to super-stardom at Marvel. And it is well deserved. Importantly, the Thor movie respects the most important elements of the hero’s origin story: the legendary Asgard, the worthiness enchantment on Mjolnir, and the struggle between the brothers Thor and Loki for the throne. Though the only significant alteration is that Asgardians are an alien race and not gods.

 

WHY IT’S ON THIS LIST: And the movie belongs on this list for the cast, the first blockbuster Thor movie, the charismatic Chris Hemsworth performance, the legendary world of Asgard and costume work, one of the most faithful Marvel Cinematic Universe comic book adaptations to film.

5. CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER (2011)

Importantly, Captain America: The First Avenger may be the best Captain America movie. When it comes to faithful adaptations, the movie retains the basic Captain America story: a young, feebled and patriotic Steve Rogers enrolls in Project Rebirth and becomes a Super-Soldier. Becoming Captain America, he leads his unit against Red Skull and Germany. Though the only major difference is that the Captain stays in the ice for 70 years in the movie as opposed to 19 years in the comics.

WHY IT’S ON THIS LIST: And the movie belongs on this list for the cast, the first blockbuster Captain America movie, the charismatic Chris Evans performance, the chemistry between the lead actors, one of the most faithful Marvel Cinematic Universe comic book adaptations to film.

4. BATMAN RETURNS (1992)

Incredibly, Batman Returns (1992) might be the most memorable Batman film of the early 1990s. With an iconic cast in Michelle Pfeiffer and Danny Devito who star as memorable villains Catwoman and Penguin; and an impressive performance by Michael Keaton, the film is even darker than the first one. According to Batman Online, the movie inspires itself from multiple gothic-style Batman stories from the early 1990s such as Batman: Dark Knight, Dark City (1990).

WHY IT’S ON THIS LIST: And the movie belongs on this list for the iconic cast, the darker Batman sequel, Michelle Pfeiffer’s break-out performance, the chemistry between the lead actors, a cult film during the decade, an inspiration from multiple comics in the 1990s.

3. V FOR VENDETTA (2006)

Incredibly, V for Vendetta (2006) takes its title directly from the source material. At IGN, the critic cites the Wachowski Brothers’ adaptation took some liberties from Alan Moore’s comic. Though, the general premise of a masked man opposing totalitarian regime in Great Britain remains. Nonetheless, the movie’s third act does not escape the tropes of Hollywood endings. Certainly, it belongs at the top of this list as an iconic movie adaptation.

WHY IT’S ON THIS LIST: And the movie belongs on this list for the adaptation from Alan Moore’s avant-garde and deconstruction of the superhero genre, the Wachowski’s artistic license and the popular controversy.

2. WATCHMEN (2009)

Gloriously, Watchmen (2009) misses the top spot on this list. At the same time, the movie is a cult classic that has passionated fans since 2009. At the helm, Zack Snyder directs the most important adaptation of a comic book to the big screen. Once again, Alan Moore’s masterpiece proves to be the inspiration. Certainly, there is a reason why the director has been celebrated among die-hard fans.

WHY IT’S ON THIS LIST: And the movie belongs on this list for the adaptation from Alan Moore’s masterpiece and the greatest comic of all time, Zack Snyder’s visual story-telling, gratuitous violence and pop-culture impact.

1. 300 (2007)

Gloriously, 300 (2007) showed it is possible to create a successful R-rated movie. Successfully, the movie was a pop-culture sensation at its release and became every fan’s visual scriptures. As a visual director, Snyder created a frame-by-frame adaptation of Frank Miller’s graphic novel. Though the movie is violent, graphic and barbaric, it inaugurated a completely new visual form of storytelling.

WHY IT’S ON THIS LIST: And the movie belongs on this list for the iconic cast, Gerard Butler’s charismatic performance, a revolutionary R-rated blockbuster movie, scene-by-scene adaptation faithful to the comic, Zack Snyder’s unique visual storytelling.

Gotham: The Best Batman Lines From B:TAS

 

GOTHAM

Batman: The Animated Series

IN FRANCHISES, COMIC VALUES AND COLLECTIONS

In our article, we list 4 important Batman lines from Batman: The Animated Series. With the passing of the late Kevin Conroy, the series is a good opportunity to celebrate his work.

Below, you can read our Top 4 Batman lines from the series.

4. “TWO-FACE PART II” (1992)

In Batman: The Animated Series, the Caped Crusader pulls all the stops to save his friends, even hardened criminals. What makes the show stand out, is Batman’s realism and resolve. Before Batman goes on the BatCycle to apprehend Two-Face, he has a conversation with Alfred. In a poignant moment, Batman says: “I still feel that somewhere inside that monster is my old friend.” Touching that Bruce still believes in Harvey Dent’s humanity.

3. “HEART OF ICE” (1992)

In Season 1: Episode 3, Batman faces one of his iconic villains: Mister Freeze. In “Heart of Ice,” Mister Freeze seeks vengeance for the death of his wife. In the denouement, Batman answers vengeance with justice by destroying the villain’s suit. Remarkably, one of Conroy’s best lines: “No. Justice. A year ago, Ferris Boyle interrupted an experiment and in the process destroyed two lives. Here’s the evidence. Good night… “humanitarian.””

2. “ON LEATHER WINGS” (1992)

Among Batman’s villains Man-Bat may be the darkest and most ominous. Though the parallels are striking, what separates Bruce from Dr. Langstrom, is the latter’s scientific madness. Here, Batman has to quickly change into Bruce for an interview: “Hey! What’s up, doc?”

1. “JOKER’S WILD(1992)

Certainly, Joker is Batman’s nemesis. These two enemies have been dancing a deadly game since Batman (1940) #1. One way to really defeat Joker is to play his emotions and trick him. Here, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill play it to perfection: “He’s counting on you to blow this place up so he can collect the insurance. By the time you get clear, Kaiser will be miles away, laughing at you.”

DC Day Series: The Best DC Comics Artists

 

DC DAY SERIES

Database Comics

IN READING GUIDES, LISTS, REVIEWS

In our first video, we list our Top 5 Best DC Comics Artists. Over the years, DC has been a perennial staple of great and innovative artists and writers, willing to inspire millions of fans. Today, DC Comics continues its tradition of hiring the top talent willing to take comic art to new heights.

In our series, we list the best DC comics artists with additional honorable mentions. Also, you can watch our video above.

5. JIM LEE

At the present, DC Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee is among the most popular artists in comics. Recently, he raised $800000 for his 60 in 60 charity work for comic shops. Now, pay attention to the Batman #608 cover: With his anatomical precision, the musculature in his character designs, and his attention to detail and scenery, the Korean American artist’s panels give lessons on medicine and still-lives.

Positives: DC Chief Creative Officer, Jim Lee’s almost medical manual on human anatomy, clair-obscur and very realistic landscapes.

Negatives: Repetitive poses, facial expressions and non-distinctive characters.

4. DAN JURGENS

Indeed, Dan Jurgens is a fan-favorite at DC Comics. And with Death of Superman we can see why. Jurgens is the epitome of the comic artist: His pages are full-blown action-oriented panels that create excitement! With his curvy lines and his creative character designs, Jurgens has mastered the DC powerhouses! And we can’t commend him enough on his work with Booster Gold. Recently, he worked on Blue & Gold, about Booster Gold’s and Blue Beetle’s new business venture after Infinite Frontier.

Positives: Creative, literary and artistic genius, kinetic panels and action-oriented, distinctive characters.

Negatives: Under-developed villains, penchant for the dramatic.

3. GEORGE PEREZ

For all his glory, the late George Perez deserves to be more well known. Really, his body of work speaks for itself. Though Crisis On Infinite Earths and Wonder Woman are mythic masterpieces, we will remember his revamp of The New Teen Titans! Truly the stuff of legend! And let’s not forget the true sequel to Crisis On Infinite Earths: Infinite Crisis.

Positives: Mythic status, oversaw DC revamps and crises, commended for his attention to detail in covers and movement in panels.

Negatives: Not enough recognition for his monumental work.

2. ALEX ROSS

At DC Comics, Alex Ross’ work is very cryptic. His magnum opus, Kingdom Come, is an Elseworld of biblical proportions! Born in Portland, OR but raised in Texas, Ross is quite the intellectual as he graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago at the age of 20. Really, his work betrays his classical training and his appreciation for universal themes and idealism.

Positives: Paintings are photo-realistic, novelization and story-telling, universal themes.

Negatives: Suitable only for mini-series, Elseworlds and graphic novels.

1. JACK KIRBY

It is the consensus among comic critics that the late Jack Kirby is the King of comics! Certainly, everything he touches turns to gold: Fantastic Four, Silver Surfer, and at DC Comics the franchise he created with the New Gods. In many respects, Kirby’s art is quintessential comic book art. With his wacky designs, sci-fi concepts and space-faring adventure, Kirby’s panels are ingenuity and creativity come to life. When Kirby worked at DC, he completely changed the direction of the multiverse with the creation of his godly metaphysical beings. Ever since Darkseid stepped into the pages of Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen #134, nothing has been the same.

Positives: Creative genius, universe-builder, sci-fi concepts. Negatives: Incomplete volumes at DC Comics.

Honorable mentions: Frank Quitely, Doug Mahnke, Ivan Reis, Carlos Pacheco, Mikel Janin, Gary Frank.

In the Post-Crisis continuity, Superman has been the Justice League of America’s public figure as well as its tactical commander. In fact, Superman’s leadership commands respect from his peers. In contrast, Wonder Woman has played a similar role, particularly due to her expertise in war and her role as a diplomatic embassador for Themyscira.

Let’s list five reasons why Superman is the Justice League’s true inspiration and five reasons why Wonder Woman’s leadership uncovers deception and sees the vision of the DC Universe.

10. IN THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN, WONDER WOMAN PROTECTS THE LEAGUE AGAINST DOOMSDAY

The Death Of Superman (2018) is the 11th installment in the DC Animated Movie Universe. In the movie, the monster named Doomsday is on a rampage across the United States and it is up to the Justice League to stop it. When the situation seems hopeless, Wonder Woman arises to fight the monster. Though she eventually loses, her leadership causes Superman to go all-out.

9. IN JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK: APOKOLIPS WAR, SUPERMAN LEADS THE LEAGUE INTO WAR AGAINST APOKOLIPS

Justice League Dark: Apokolips War (2020), is the final installment in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies. At the beginning of the movie, Superman formulates a plan to invade Apokolips in order to prevent war on Earth. But Superman and the Justice League Dark are captured. After the Justice League’s forces are destroyed, John Constantine enacts a plan to save them. Finally, Superman is freed from Darkseid’s control on Apokolips. In the finale, an amped Superman takes on Darkseid toe-to-toe.

8. IN SUPERMAN: SACRIFICE, WONDER WOMAN FREES SUPERMAN FROM MAXWELL LORD’S MIND-CONTROL

In Superman: Sacrifice, Superman has attacked Batman at the Watchtower. After, the Justice League discovers that Maxwell Lord mind-controls Superman and has taken control of Brother Eye. Violently, Superman attacks the League and escapes. Now, with her powers of Truth, Wonder Woman tracks him down and locates Checkmate. After a vicious battle, Wonder Woman kills Maxwell to free Superman from his delusions. Really, a controversial decision that created a crisis of leadership in the Justice League. Importantly, it contributed to Infinite Crisis.

7. IN INFINITE CRISIS, SUPERMAN STOPS SUPERBOY-PRIME WITHOUT KILLING

In Infinite Crisis, the 52 universes in the DC multiverse are threatened of destruction by Superboy-Prime and Alexander Luthor Jr. Indeed, the villains seek to destroy the 52 earths to restore Earth-Prime, the perfect Earth. In a crisis of leadership, Earth-One and Earth-Two Supermen rise to save the multiverse. On the Green Lantern planet Mogo, a depowered Earth-One Superman defeats a depowered Superboy-Prime after flying through a red sun, delivering a speech that inspired fans.

6. IN ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, WONDER WOMAN LEADS THE LEAGUE IN BATTLE

In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Wonder Woman shows why she is the League’s tactical leader. With Superman inactive, Wonder Woman leads the League in battle against Steppenwolf and the parademons. When Batman decides to sacrifice himself to drive Steppenwolf’s army away, Wonder Woman rallies the League to help him. Again, she saves Batman from death at the hands of Apokoliptian armies. In the end, she decapitates Steppenwolf with her magical sword.

5. IN BATMAN V. SUPERMAN, SUPERMAN SACRIFICES HIMSELF TO KILL DOOMSDAY

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, is the second movie in Snyder’s trilogy. In the movie, Superman and Batman clash after Lex Luthor stages a political intrigue. In the finale, both heroes must fight with Wonder Woman against Doomsday, Luthor’s mutated Zod. In order to save the Earth and Lois Lane, Superman sacrifices himself, killing Doomsday with a kryptonite spear.

4. IN DARK NIGHTS: DEATH METAL, WONDER WOMAN CREATES THE FIRST ANTI-CRISIS

In Dark Nights: Death Metal, the DC heroes must stop an invasion from The Batman Who Laughs and the Dark multiverse. In order to stop the dangers to the multiverse once and for all, Wonder Woman leads the heroes into the first Anti-Crisis. After one final battle, she defeats The Batman Who Laughs in the death sun. At the end, the DC multiverse is restored with no frontiers and all the crises in continuity remembered.

3. IN FINAL CRISIS, SUPERMAN RESTORES THE DC MULTIVERSE

In Final Crisis, Darkseid finally conquered the Anti-Life Equation. Now, he set out to create a Fifth World on New Earth. During the crisis, even Nil is threatened by destruction by the Equation. In the end, Darkseid destroys the entirety of the DC multiverse, past, present and future. Only a group of heroes and civilians remain in space on the Watchtower. Proving to be the Justice League’s true leader, Superman uses his remaining stores of solar energy to activate the Miracle Machine and restore the DC multiverse. Though it was not the last crisis, since the multiverse was rebooted again after Flashpoint.

2. WONDER WOMAN REFUSES TO ASCEND AMONG THE QUINTESSENCE TO REMAIN HUMAN

With Infinite Frontier (2021) #0, the Quintessence shows Wonder Woman a vision of the new DC multiverse. Then, they congratulate the heroine and propose her to ascend into their ranks as a goddess. However, Wonder Woman declines to preserve her humanity and fight the impending darkness.

1. SUPERMAN INSPIRES PEOPLE BY REVEALING HIS SECRET IDENTITY

Perhaps, the greatest reason why Superman is the Justice League‘s best leader is his example. In Superman (2020) #18, Superman finally comes out and reveals his secret identity to the public. Though his peers questioned his decision and Batman feared mind control. At the same time, the decision also worsened his hero status. Definitely, a decision of momentous proportions that changed the status quo and shows how much the Man of Steel can inspire people around the world.

Injustice 2: Who Has The Best Comic-Accurate Fighting Techniques?

 

INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US

THUNDERONE

IN Franchises, Comic Values And Collections

*In celebration of Independence Day, we go over the best fighting techniques in Injustice 2 for PS4 and Xbox One.

THE BEST FIGHTING VIDEO GAME

Injustice 2. WB Games.

The Injustice: Gods Among Us video game series has been both a financial and a critical success for WB Games.

Based on the popular comic franchise titled Injustice: Gods Among Us, the series centers on the events after Joker brutally kills Lois Lane, Superman becomes evil and sets up a tyrannical Regime on Earth. And Batman forms a coalition of heroes to oppose Superman’s Regime.

In the Injustice 2 sequel, the Insurgency has stopped Superman and his forces. However, they enlist the evil Superman‘s help when Brainiac attempts to collect the Earth.

According to reviews by MetaCritic, the sequel has improved gameplay and mechanics though other reviews criticize the plot. At MetaCritic, the PS4 and Xbox One versions have 87/100 and 89/100.

Since we are interested in the fighting game, let’s rate the main characters’ fighting techniques and how they compare to the comic. For the most part, we are interested in strength, speed, and damage.

So, from our video above, let’s find out which Injustice 2 character has the most comic-accurate fighting technique.

 

TRAVELING TO ASIA OR LATIN AMERICA? READ A COMIC ON THE GO!

5. COMIC-ACCURATE: DARKSEID

Generally, Darkseid’s fighting moves are inspired from the classic Bronze Age version though his costume and powerset take some inspiration from the New 52.

Really, Darkseid is imposing and his fighting moves make for some economy of movements, with strength, power and size. With his imposing physique, Darkseid can deal up to 40 hits of combos with at more than two-thirds of your life bar.

Certainly, his Omega Beams are his finishing moves showing that he may be the best for defensive-minded players who like to deal maximum damage in a few moves.

VERDICT: COMIC-ACCURATE


Mr. Alucard

4. COMIC-ACCURATE: BATMAN

Usually, Batman uses shadows, deception and technology to defeat his opponents. In fact, his fighting stance is usually a crouching, mysterious and exploiting technique.

Since Injustice is influenced by the Elseworld and its armored characters, Batman’s fighting techniques show a more offensive-minded and open-combat Batman. In fact, his techniques reflects the comic more accurately.

And Batman’s grappling hook is the difference-maker. Effectively, he uses it offensively to trap his opponent and throw him/her across distances. Certainly, moves reminiscent of Batman v Superman. With 40 hits, Batman can cost more than two-thirds of your life.

VERDICT: COMIC-ACCURATE

With the Black Adam movie, Doctor Fate and the JSA are getting some interest. Though the powerhouse is not well-known, his appearance in the game is very comic-accurate. In fact, Doctor Fate is a playable anti-hero in the game.

And this video game separates itself with the improved gameplay and design. Though Doctor Fate’s Spell of Judgment combos only deal 14 Hits, they damage about two-thirds of a life bar. What is special about his fighting techniques is that they accurately reflect the comics.

VERDICT: MORE COMIC-ACCURATE

2. COMIC-ACCURATE: SUPERMAN’S SPEEDING BULLET

Perhaps, one disappointment from Injustice 2 is the downplay in Superman’s combos in terms of hits, strength and damage. The first game featured Superman‘s Flying Ground Smash and other special moves.

However, our game shows moves more consistent with Superman’s fighting techniques Post-Crisis. Usually, Superman uses a lot of haymakers, crosses and bullrushes at super speed. At the same time, this reflects an aged and powered-down Superman.

Neverthless, the fallen hero still deals about half the damage in 14 hits.

VERDICT: MORE COMIC-ACCURATE

1. COMIC-ACCURATE: FLASH’S LIGHTNING PUNCHES

Before, we published an article about Flash’s lightning punches. In fact, the article asked how Flash’s punches can hurt Superman. In Injustice 2, the gameplay answers the question.

Without a doubt, Flash sports the best fighting techniques of any character in the game. Certainly, the improved mechanics make Flash’s lightning punches flow better. And really, Injustice 2 may be the most-accurate portrayal of Flash’s super speed.

From the gameplay, to the fighting techniques to the super speed, Flash simply appears and disappears like a bolt of lightning. In 20 Hits, the hero is able to beat a third of your life in damage. Really, Flash sits at the top and faithfully his special moves display the comics.

THUNDERONE

VERDICT: BEST COMIC-ACCURATE
