‘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.

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.

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

A few weeks back TOT reported rumors emanating from MoviesOnline.com which quoted an “insider” as saying that Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s role in The Dark Knight Rises would be that of Alberto Falcone, aka the Holiday Killer. This rumor was followed recently by actor Gary Oldman, who plays James Gordon in the Christopher Nolan-helmed film series, saying […]

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. What I have learned the last few months is that the only thing that is definitive about that film right now is that nothing is really […]
