When The Dark Knight Rises finally soars into theaters on July 20, 2012 it'll be the final crowning achievement in director Christopher Nolan's trilogy of Bat-films. Although the director has often stated TDKR would be his final Batman film, let's admit that we've all held out hope that he would return for more.
The face off between Bane (Tom Hardy) and Batman (Christian Bale) looks epic, and the latest trailer for The Dark Knight Rises shows off more of the fight. And it looks awesome.
Five new promo posters for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises have made their way into the wild, showing off great new looks at Batman, Bane, Catwoman and shiny new vehicle The Bat.
It's been twenty years since Michelle Pfeiffer got to wear that oh-so-skin-tight black latex catsuit in Batman Returns (where does time fly!?), but the actress says that she'd be more than willing to play the role again. Can we have a Mrowr?
Along with new villains, new potential allies and serious new threats to the people of Gotham, Batman's also dealing with some new toys in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. The coolest of those new toys is Batman's brand new flying ride, and it's the centerpiece of the latest TV spot for the flick.
Considering the fact we've waited decades for a true Justice League movie to get off the ground, the fact that one is finally happening (again) is cause to celebrate. But in case you don't want to pine away a few years to see what DC cooks up, this fan-made trailer actually looks like the epic team-up we've been waiting for.
Christopher Nolan's take on Batman has been lauded for a lot of reasons, one of which is its grounded realism, despite being based on a comic book hero. But, it seems that ultra-realistic Bat-outfit doesn't work exactly like in the comics, and it nearly knocked star Christian Bale out cold while filming The Dark Knight Rises.
Bruce Wayne is known to comic book fans for his dark secrets, the most prominent of which is that he's ... you know, Batman. But this month's issue of Batman revealed another secret, one that even Bruce didn't know about, that could have huge consequences for the Bat-mythos as a whole. SPOILERS AHEAD!
One of the glories of a free society is that you can, by and large, believe whatever you want to believe and say, for the most part, whatever you want to say. Occasionally, that freedom leads to something as wonderfully entertaining as a man in a Dark Knight cowl preaching Batmanism to the masses. And, oddly enough, making a bit of sense.
Where's a street sweeper when you need it? Thanks to Bane and his legion of followers, Gotham has gone to hell in a handbasket. Judging by the latest banners from The Dark Knight Rises, Batman is the only thing standing between the city and complete chaos.
