Halloween = Big-Time Cosplay!

It’s October and Halloween is upon us. The gang at BeatDownBoogie, as always, does not disappoint with their footage from DragonCon 2014. It is harder and harder to name every character I see, especially with all of the variations and mash-ups. Watch for what I can only describe as “Hawaiian Vacation Cobra Commander.” Below are […]

They said it coudn’t happen… Bumblebee’s a bug!

It’s common knowledge that Bumblebee was a Volkswagon Beetle back in the 80’s…but then again, not really. In recent incarnations, Bumblebee has had some decidedly NON-VW alt modes, and the fan requests regularly come in for a return to his roots. A difficult situation, Hasbro reps would tell us. It turns out that Volkswagon has […]

‘Dark Knight Rises’ is a fitting finale

Boiling over with layers of social commentary, “The Dark Knight Rises” takes comic book lore to places it’s rarely been, and delivers the goods with an emotionally exhausting, but ultimately satisfying, conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. In the nearly three-hour conclusion, we find a Gotham that has returned to a state of perceived peace […]

Attention Bat-Nerds: Create Your Own Tumbler!

It’s a truism that the 1966 George Barris-designed Batmobile is the coolest Bat-transportation (or any transportation, now that I think about it) ever, the Tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s Bat-universe is also cool. It’s part Batmobile, part tank, and 100 percent bad-ass. Well, guess what? Thanks to Warner Bros. and its relentless promotion of the forthcoming […]

‘The Avengers’ vs. ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

There are annoying opinions and lots of media hubbub popping up everywhere following the over-the-top success of “The Avengers” after its opening weekend – the film, which is the culmination of Marvel Comics-based films featuring The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, grossed more than $200 million, the highest ever for an opening […]

Final Dark Knight Rises Trailer is Online

We’re in the homestretch now. A viral marketing campaign over at thedarknightrises.com has given way to the third and final trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, which opens in theaters July 20. This just in: The trailer’s bad-assery knows  no bounds. What we learn in this trailer is that Batman apparently has more allies than […]

Cat’s Out of the Bag

At long last, Warner Bros. has given us fanboys what we’ve been waiting for: A pic of Anne Hathaway in her Catwoman getup from the forthcoming film “The Dark Knight Rises.” Well, sort of. Rather than a revealing, purr-inspiring, full-body shot, what we got is a photo of Hathaway’s Catwoman … riding the Bat-Pod? What […]

Bat Fight!

Pittsburgh is under siege. “The Dark Knight Rises” is filming there the next few weeks, and already we are getting leaked set photos that give us a glimpse into some of the action. No fewer than three Tumblers — still camo colored, not black — have been spotted, as well as a Batpod. There was […]

Finally! A Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer!

Bat-nerds such as myself live for days like today. I didn’t want to pay nine bucks to wait in line for the Harry Potter conclusion to see the new teaser trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises” (due out July 20, 2012) on a big screen, so it sure feels good to be able to watch […]

Cat’s Out of the Bag

The official press release issued by Warner Bros. about casting for 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises, noted that Anne Hathaway would portray “Selina Kyle.” Not Catwoman, mind you, but Selina Kyle. This, of course, led all the over-analyzers to wonder if perhaps director Christopher Nolan would simply tease us, and perhaps (horrors!) not show us […]
