Driven by anger with Superman by his side, Batman seeks his vengeance as he looks to end the Joker's threat forever.

Cowled and scowling, with a winged cape inspired by da Vinci and a thirst for justice born of his parents' murder, he debuted as a comic book character in 1939. Even his earliest incarnation is instantly recognizable: Batman-the Caped Crusader. A few short years later Bob Kane's creation leapt from the printed page to the silver screen, a brooding presence framed against the darkened Gotham skyline, ever vigilant to the misdeeds of a host of maniacal and devious enemies. Since his film debut in the 1940s, Batman and his alter ego Bruce Wayne have been a regular presence in movies. In various incarnations, with or without his cheerful sidekick Robin, Batman has remained an American icon, capturing the imagination of each successive generation of moviegoers. This detailed examination of live-action Batman features follows his motion picture adventures, from his first appearances on the screen in 1940's film serials, through the camp craze surrounding the 1966 television series, up to the Warner Bros. series of summer blockbusters that began with 1989's Batman starring Michael Keaton. Chapters on each of the seven feature-length Batman movies include extensive film and production credits, a production history, and a critical analysis of the movie relative to other Batman films and the original comic book character. Notes accompany each chapter, and an index and bibliography are included.

Bruce Wayne is Batman, Gotham City's dark protector. Damian Wayne is Robin, his partner in crimefighting-and his son. But something binds this Dynamic Duo together that runs deeper even than the blood in their veins: trust. But what happens if that trust is broken? After a year of silence, the mad laughter of the Joker can be heard echoing through Gotham's streets once again. Back with a vengeance, the Dark Knight's insane nemesis is out to destroy the Batman's connections to his closest friends and allies. And what better way to accomplish that than to pit father against son? The relationship between Gotham's greatest heroes is put to the test like never before in BATMAN AND ROBIN: DEATH OF THE FAMILY (collects issues #15-17, BATMAN AND ROBIN ANNUAL #1 and BATMAN #17), from the bestselling creative team of Peter J. Tomasi (BRIGHTEST DAY), Patrick Gleason (GREEN LANTERN CORPS), and Mick Gray (BRIGHTEST DAY). It's the final word in whether this Robin is truly worthy of the mantle of the Bat! From the Hardcover edition.

Excerpt: Jason Peter Todd is a fictional character that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. Jason first appeared in Batman #357 (March 1983) and became the second Robin, sidekick to the superhero Batman, when the previous Robin (Dick Grayson) went on to star in The New Teen Titans under the moniker of Nightwing. Though initially popular, following a revamping of his origin by Max Allan Collins, the Jason Todd version of Robin as written by Jim Starlin was not well-received by fans. For 1988's Batman: A Death in the Family storyline, DC Comics held a telephone poll to determine whether or not the character would die at the hands of the Joker, Batman's arch nemesis. The character was killed off by a vote of 5343 to 5271. Subsequent Batman stories dealt with Batman's guilt over not having been able to prevent Jason's death. However, in 2005's "Under the Hood" story arc, the character was resurrected, eventually becoming the second Red Hood and assuming a new role as an antihero who resembles Batman in many ways, except with a willingness to use lethal force and weapons. In June 2010, Jason was featured in Red Hood: The Lost Days, a six-issue miniseries to coincide with the release of the DC animated film Batman: Under the Red Hood. The story, written by Judd Winick, concentrated on Jason's l...
