Recent set photos provide evidence that elements of Batman V. Superman are going to look a lot like Frank Miller’s comic The Dark Knight Returns. Minor spoilers ahead.

It all has to do with the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. I know you’re thinking “not again!”, but take a look a the photos. The scene seems to be pulled right out of the comic. You can see the Wayne Family is coming out of a showing of The Mark of Zorro before the murders and, is that Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Thomas Wayne?

Check out the set gallery along with a comparison with The Dark Knight Returns after the break…

Ever wonder what a sequel to Batman & Robin would be like? No? Of course you didn’t. Odds are you wanted to forget that it ever existed. If that’s the case then we have some terrible and shocking news for you. According to Bleeding Cool, Joel Schumacher will to continue the saga in a 12-issue comic series drawn by Dustin Nguyen that’s based on the script for Batman Triumphant—the third and final installment of a Schumacher Batman trilogy that never happened.

According to the Batman Wiki, the Scarecrow would have been the main villain of the film with Harley Quinn playing the Joker’s daughter who is bent on revenge for her father’s death. The Joker himself would also return as a hallucination caused by Scarecrow’s fear toxin.

So, we’re going to get to see the crazy that would have been a fifth movie? I have to admit—as a series of comics, this could be kind of fun. Of course, nothing is set in stone until an official announcement is made.

On that note, you’ll want to check out the video of Schumacher apologizing for Batman & Robin after the break so that you can complete the healing process before the comics are released.

Now you get to choose which house becomes Harry’s home in this series of comics. Head on over to Dorkly where you can see how differently things would have gone if Harry hadn’t been a Gryffindor.

The ability to time travel could solve so many problems. In their latest installment of “The Line it is Drawn,” Comic Book Resources challenged artists to “Take a current comic book character and send them back in time to prevent a notable event from the past of DC, Marvel, Image or whatever.” Artist Axel Medellin Machain imagined Batman jumping into the world of Watchmen and stopping Ozymandias. Besides saving the day, he also gets in some solid lecturing.

Nick Fury may have known what he was getting into with S.H.I.E.L.D., but he probably had no idea just how complicated his life would become when he had to start wrangling The Avengers. This comic by Jenn Menze takes a fun look at how Fury gets them all out of bed and ready for the day, and then settles them all back down for a good night’s sleep.

There’s nothing quite so sweet as that moment when you discover something new and completely fall in love with a fandom. It could be a comic, a movie, or a book, but it’s a wonderful moment that’s something to treasure. The only problem is that, no matter the fandom, some guy out there is going to try and ruin it for you within minutes. Whatever you do, don’t be that guy.

There are times that Game of Thrones has you on the edge of your seat in anticipation, but then there are the times it has you struggling to stay awake. Daenerys has been wandering from desert city to desert city to desert city, and if the audience had any say in the matter, that might change pretty quick. Also, Ser Pounce would get the recognition he deserves.

This comic from Dorkly perfectly explains The Mathematical Law of Superhero Film Villains. The more villains in a movie, the tougher they should be to beat—but that’s just not the case. More villains in one film means they each have the brain power of your average tree slug.

We live in a time where a furry gun-toting raccoon and a talking tree will appear in a film before Wonder Woman. It’s ridiculous that DC Comics and Warner Bros. haven’t given Diana the spotlight yet. They throw around excuses, and this comic from Dorkly showcases just how silly and frustrating the situation is.

Sunday’s Game of Thrones brought an event that many fans of the series have been waiting to see: the death of a horrible, awful, no good character. Goodbye, Joffrey Baratheon and good riddance. Dorkly captured the sentiments of various groups’ reactions to “The Lion and The Rose” perfectly because it was all more or less unanimous.

Happy as I was to see Joffrey bite it, I do have to compliment Jack Gleeson for his portrayal of the despicable character. He played the heck out of the worst king Westeros has ever seen, and it can’t have been an easy burden to bear. On top of that Gleeson seems to be a super nice guy that loves cuddling puppies.
