    When DC made “Batman Begins” and “Superman Returns” they made it clear that Superman and Batman wouldn’t be in a movie together. Just recently, though, I watched a fair use parody video that mentioned that DC was trying to make one. I haven’t been able to find a website for DC Entertainment, DCcomics.com doesn’t have a section for DC movies or provide a link to a website for DC Entertainment, nor can I find any online articles about the movie. Does anyone have any information on this? The way it was brought up in the video (link below) gives the impression that the information about the movie is serious–if it is, though, I don’t see anything about it. So again does anyone have any information on whether or not it’s going to happen or not?

    I cannot find such data nor can I read such data from us census bureau. I would like to find a website that gives such data up front and easy to read. Also data specified on how much residents spend at for sports bar, nightclub, billiards, bowling allies and arcade places like Lucky Strike and Dave n Buster, Fridays. And a total amount on all entertainment for last 5 years. This information is for a business plan.

  • white man

    I’m looking for a good source of information on things to do around DC, VA & MD. Thanks!

    I have friends coming in this weekend for my birthday. What lounges/bars/clubs/restaurants are there in the DC area for men and women in their late 20’s and 30’s? I live in central VA so I’m primarily looking at Northern VA and Southern DC, Maryland will be too far. We are already gonna do some of the ‘touristy’ things, but what about night life? Anything in Adams Morgan will probably not be our speed…

  • nyyankees1123

    I’m thinking of surprising my husband with a weekend trip to DC this weekend for our 6 month anniversary. I’d love some ideas on unique places to stay. I’d also love input from some guys on fun things to do. A little bit of info about him to help you out…he is a huge Redskins fan, loves Vietnam war history, the Dave Matthews Band and spent 3 hours in the Smithsonian last fall “flying” those hydraulic fighter planes. I hope you can help me!

    I have been into comic books for a little bit, but not as heavy as I would like. I like all comics, hero to horror. But I feel like it’s hard to have conversations with people because I don’t know the full history of a character or haven’t read that particular novel. What graphic novels or comics do I need to read?

  • supernerd567

    In terms of character and storyline. Would you say you see batman as he is in the comics brought to life, or are you disappointed?

  • Goe122

    We all know Superman doesn’t stand a chance against Batman is a fist fight.
    Cause Batman is superior to Superman in every way.

    What would happen if Superman flew up to Batman as fast as he could & punched Batman in the face as hard as he could?

  • alberto s

    Such as, if I wanted to read up on the series by reading the graphic novels, where should I start and what order should they be read in? And does someone have a link of where I can find a list of all the Batman graphic novels that have been done.

  • Michael K

    We all know that Batman is always 10 steps ahead of his opponents. But, can he outthinking a mastermind like, Brainiac? I know that Brainiac is one of Superman’s archenemies, but i would really like to see how Batman would defeat him/it. Superman may have all the powers, but let’s face it he’s not a fast thinker. One of the reasons most people likes Batman is because of his high Genius-Level Intellect.

  • Matthew S

    who is excited about the new batman movie comming out tomorrow?

    not to sound like a loser, but batman is badass!

  • morbiusdog

    I’ve read the killing joke, but I want to read more batman graphic novels, what are
    The best of the best?

  • whitesoxfan2347

    Well I wanna read the very first batman comics and how he originated and everything where would I start?? And are the batman chronicles worth reading? And what books should I read to catch up with me to the now comics? Like from the golden age of comics to the modern age of comics? I wanna read all of them!

  • JackReynolds

    I never heard of him until all of the talk online about Batman 3. He sounds cool from what I’ve read online but I’d like to get my hands on a comic book about him. Can you recommend a good one?

  • Miguel M

    Ok so im trying to get the riddler trophies. Im in the museum and the last of em is in the iceberg lounge but the door is locked.. Batman says “theres got to be a way to get in there”. So how do you get in there? Ive already beaten the game.

  • Blake

    So, i wanted to start reading batman comics, but i really am in it to learn more about the characters. So i wanted to know which comics are ABSOLUTELY vital to the story line.
