‘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 […]

‘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 […]

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.

Calm down – we’ll know the ‘Dark Knight Rises’ villain(s) soon enough

I read a lot of blogs about Batman, and in particular about The Dark Knight Rises, the forthcoming final entry in the Batman film trilogy directed by Christopher Nolan.
