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 […]

Batman is stalking me!

This message popped up in my email this morning:                   I have to say I find the whole idea a little troubling… Why did Batman single out ME? Why does he feel the need to take time out of his busy schedule to keep tabs on ME? […]

Official Dark Knight Rises Casting News: No Falcone, No Talia!

Turns out the early reports were wrong. All wrong. WB announced the casting of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard, which we already pretty much knew was coming. The big news is that they will NOT be playing Alberto Falcone and Talia al Ghul, respectively, as has been widely rumored. Here’s the WB press release: BURBANK, […]

…the Hell?!?

Okiedokie. This image is of the cast of BATMAN LIVE, which opens in Manchester this July and threatens to invade the shores of the Americas in  Summer 2012. BATMAN LIVE is a $20 million “arena spectacular,” which usually means beer will be sold. And it’ll come in handy. I’m actually kinda’ down with this. I […]

Podcast: The Most Dangerous Game

Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedThis week, we ponder the concept of government: Is it getting more corrupt, or has it been corrupt since the first caveman wanted the second caveman to share 40% of his fire? Also, BP spills something else, Batman getting the ol’ reboot and we get Sucker Punched. […]

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 […]

CHOOM! CHOOM!

As a companion to the 2011 Toy Fair article, I submit this bit of video from 1995. Watch as actors struggle reciting the ridiculous marketing copy for middle-management-types, a woman in a sexy cop outfit almost puts out someone’s eye at the Batman display, and learn Megatron has glow-in-the-dark missiles for… night fighting … so… […]
