DC Collectibles Unveils Limited Jiro Kuwata Batman Statue

Jiro Kuwata is a superhero legend in Japan. He’s the artist behind the country’s first costumed superhero 8 Man created in the 1960s. 8 Man remained a cultural touchstone in Japan, but after Kawata’s run he moved on to another major work: DC Comic’s Batman. Known as Bat-Manga, Kuwata’s crisp artwork and stories of the caped crusader remained limited to Japan for decades and didn’t appear stateside until 2008.

A “Batman: Black & White” statue based on Kuwata’s character design, complete with stylized cape, and manga-style shading will go on sale in January 2019, and pre-orders will open on May 22. 

Only 5,000 individually numbered 1/10-scale statues will be produced and each will retail for $80.

Gotham Season 5 Will Be The Series’ Last

FOX announced it has given the green light to Gotham Season 5 and also revealed it will the series’ last season. “The fifth and final season will wrap up this unique origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, which revealed an entirely new chapter that has never been told,” FOX said in a statement.

Although the network has not announced how many episodes the fifth season will have, it is believed to be a shorter, 13-episode season which would take the show to the 100-episode mark needed for syndication. The final season will focus on Bruce Wayne’s transformation into the caped crusader.

The show’s Season 4 finale is set to air on May 17 and is titled “A Dark Knight: No Man’s Land.” The episode is described as follows: “Jeremiah warns a skeptical Gordon of more destruction coming Gotham’s way, and Gordon is forced to make a potentially devastating decision. Meanwhile, Barbara rallies together a team to secure her position, as alliances in the underworld shift and prove no one can be trusted. Then, Bruce is forced to come to terms with the future.”

Gotham stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Morena Baccarin as Leslie Thompkins, Sean Pertwee as Alfred, Robin Lord Taylor as The Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/the Riddler, Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan, Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox, Drew Powell as Butch Gilzean/Solomon Grundy, Alexander Siddig as Ra’s Ah Ghul, and Crystal Reed as Sofia Falcone.

Gotham is based upon DC characters and is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Bruno Heller, Danny Cannon and John Stephens serve as executive producers on the series.

DC Collectibles Reveal Gerard Way’s Batman & Joker Statues

Ahead of this weekend’s New York Toy Fair, DC Collectibles has unveiled a sneak peek of its 2018 lineup, which includes two new entries in its Batman: Black and White line, based on artwork by the curator of Young Animal, Gerard Way.

The statues of Batman and Joker are based on illustrations revealed by Way on Twitter in 2013. The designs are titled “Kingdom of the Mad,” a Batman story that was approved by DC Entertainment for release through Vertigo but unfortunately never saw the light of day.

Beyond the Dark Knight and The Joker, Way also released designs for Robin, Two-Face, The Penguin, The Riddler and Mr. Freeze, hinting at a massive and story. Now, however, at least part of Way’s vision will live on in the form of these statues.

Perhaps, if the demand for the statues proves strong, DC could finally be persuaded to make the miniseries a reality.

Priced at $80 each, the two statues will be released in October 2018.
