There are plenty of Batman fans who’d like to forget the Joel Schumacher films ever existed. Even the director himself sounds apologetic when he talks about his second one, admitting he “didn’t do a good job.” But now he’s actually going back to revisit that world, in comic book form.
A new report indicates Schumacher is writing a Batman and Robin sequel, which will be drawn by Dustin Nguyen. The twelve-issue series is based on Batman Triumphant, the never-made third film in the Schumacher Batman trilogy. Hit the jump for more on the Batman and Robin sequel.
UPDATE: Schumacher has denied the Batman and Robin sequel comic reports, as reported by Bleeding Cool.

Most people think Let It Go, the melodic ballad from Disney’s blockbuster hit Frozen, has the inside track to win the Best Original Song Oscar. It’s catchy, beautiful and has crossed over into the mainstream in a way most movie songs fail to do. However, that also means people want to take it down a peg and YouTube user 2chinTV does just that with this video featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s Mr. Freeze from Batman and Robin singing the song. And no, they didn’t just edit Batman and Robin footage with the Idina Menzel vocals. They have a Schwarzenegger’s impersonator sing the song. It’s ridiculous. Check it out below. Read More »

Last night’s Saturday Night Live was pretty good, with the cast managing to maintain its surprising post-strike energy and wit. Host Amy Adams needed to be sedated though, anyone else notice? The highlight was a new superhero-spoofing SNL Digital Short starring cast member Andy Samberg entitled Hero Song.
Playing a Big Apple yuppie who is increasingly distressed over the city’s rising (and totally inexistent) crime wave, Samberg’s voice builds and crescendos like Gerard McMann’s ’80s smash “Cry Little Sister” from The Lost Boys soundtrack. Even better however is when his faux-empathetic yuppie decides to become a superhero while shouting the lines, “And so I rise from the ashes, the people need a superheroooooo, someone to save them” from a cliche rooftop. His costume pays homage to Chris O’Donnell’s completely homoerotic Robin from Batman and Robin, and also pays homage to a shiny, deflated party balloon. Let’s just say this guy gets what he deserves. New Yorkers will be especially satisfied.
Discuss: Who was a bigger wanker, this guy or O’Donnell’s Robin?
