Comedian and pop culture enthusiast Paul Scheer has an awesome podcast called How Did This Get Made? where they talk to filmmakers of awful movies and figure out how the movie got made. The latest episode features Lexi Alexander, director of Punisher: War Zone and comedian Patton Oswalt, one of the film’s biggest fans, discussing how the movie got made. Head to Earwolf to download the episode. (Note that if you’re in LA, you can see Oswalt introduce War Zone tonight at the New Beverly Cinema; he’ll have Lexi Alexander on stage for a post-show Q&A, too.)

The next Batman animated series, debuting in 2013, is titled Beware the Batman. According to Register, the CGI animated series will spotlight a classic-looking Batman teaming up with a gun-toting Alfred Pennyworth and a female ninja sidekick. Beware the Batman is executive-produced by Glen Murakami, and will explore the mythology’s more obscure villains, such as Professor Pyg, but also won’t shy away from featuring some of the more well-known Batman foes. In the series, Batman will team up with a younger female sidekick named Katana. During the keynote, Register added that Katana will fill the sidekick role, but won’t be a replacement for Robin.
Rumors have been circling for months about Juno Temple‘s role in Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises and above she avoids the topic while talking with MTV Movies.
