Netflix in July: Castlevania! Friends From College! Rogue One! Castlevania!!

(Disclosure: I’m partnered with Netflix as a #StreamTeam member. I was not directly compensated for this article. All words, thoughts and crippling nostalgia are mine.)

Every month, the Netflix life cycle evolves and we get some new content while saying goodbye to some old content. In July, we say goodbye to some old favorites (so watch them NOW before they’re gone) but say hello to some new, sexy content.

Superhero Fatherhood: ‘Son of Batman’ Animated Movie Coming This Spring

By  •  News

Bat-dad

Thought you’d be interested in this bit of info: This Spring, an animated movie will round out the story of Batman and his son, Damian. Oh, did you not know that Batman is a father? Damian never showed up in the theatrical Batman franchise, so we don’t blame you.

Titled Son of Batman, it is a Warner Bros. Animation and DC Universe Animated Original Movie (quote-unquote) starring Jason O’Mara as Batman. O’Mara also voices the Dark Knight in another animated movie out now-ish, Justice League: War.

Son of Batman follows the story of Damian Wayne, inspired by the 2006 story arc from the graphic novel Batman and Son. And if you thought Batman had family issues before…get ready for something different.

Spider-Dad

There’s been a lot of superhero dad action as of late.

There’s this solider who came home to surprise his son dressed as Spider-Man, the always fun-loving BatDad, Lambo BatDad pulled over on the way to a children’s hospital, YABD (yet another BatDad) with BatKid who saved San Francisco that one time, this TrollDad who stood outside on his doorstep every morning for a year waving to his son’s bus, and the ever so popular I know a good dad when I see one dad.

Now, those are just a few of the dads out there that are sharing some superhero awesomeness with their kids. So what could possibly tingle our Spidey-Sense again? Read More

Father Dressed As Batman Pulled Over On His Way to Children’s Hospital

By  •  News

All right-thinking young men, and many right-thinking young women, had dreams of growing up to be Batman. Playboy billionaire by day, stoic ass-kicker at night with all the coolest toys! As we have grown up, VERY few of us have the means to bring these dreams to fruition. As we have become parents, we try to be superheroes for our kids, but we rarely get to wear the cape of “DADMAN!! Defender of naptimes everywhere!!!”

It’s not nearly as glamorous.

One man, however, gets to live his dream!
