More The Dark Knight Rises stories

Here’s What A Sequel To ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Might Have Looked Like. Kinda.

Above is a fan film from a potential web series called The Dark Knight Legacy which continues the events of The Dark Knight Rises that made Jospeh Gordon-Levitt’s John Blake the new Batman. Except he’s Nightwing because fuck Bruce Wayne’s life mission to create an undying legend? Anyway, it’s supposed to be in the tone…

Dane Cook Apologizes For Aurora Shooting Joke

In my zeal to spout off about the frustrating and continuing trend in taking comedy club bits out of context and drumming them up for controversy, I never once stopped to consider that maybe Dane Cook purposefully made a joke about The Dark Knight Rises shooting knowing that’s exactly how it would play out. Because…

Dane Cook Joked About The Colorado Shooting. Goddammit…

If you thought anyone learned a thing from the Daniel Tosh and Tracy Morgan incidents, clearly you’ve underestimated the media’s reluctance to let go of these taken completely out of context comedy jokes stories. So I hope everyone’s ready to be constantly forwarded an 8,000 word Lindy West essay on how to tell a shooting…

Christian Bale’s In Colorado Visiting Shooting Victims, Is Awesome

The Denver Post has confirmed Christian Bale showed up unannounced in Aurora today to visit with victims of last week’s The Dark Knight Rises shooting because fuck if he’s going to let Hellboy be the only badass superhero.

The Olsen Twins Just Had To Kill Heath Ledger:
A Review Of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

If you’ve been living under a rock (I almost said “in a cave” but stopped myself) for the past 18 hours, 24-year-old James Holmes dyed his hair red, called himself The Joker and shot up a Colorado midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises after filling it full of homemade tear gas for reasons police…

We Went To See Batman

“Alright, now I’m getting pissed. Where are the dick jokes?”

So by the time you read this post Photo Boy and I will already be an hour into The Dark Knight Rises because we didn’t feel like taking a rogue inhaler to the eye at a midnight show. [Or shot, I should sadly

Just Kidding, Mitt Romney’s Batman Now

“Did you make the suit out of aborted fetuses like I asked? Good, good.”

Yesterday, the Internet pissed itself silly after Rush Limbaugh couldn’t resist the immediately ridiculous theory that The Dark Knight Rises is a liberal conspiracy to make movie-goers associate Mitt Romney with the villain Bane so they’ll vote for Obama.

The 2012 MTV Movie Awards

It seems like only yesterday we were going, “Let me guess, Twilight won everything,” yet somehow another MTV Movie Awards was upon us where, per usual, nothing of significance happened as non-eventfully as possible, so let’s talk about that stuff so we can get back to the very important business of calling people fat on…

Christian Bale & Joseph Gordon-Levitt For Your ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Speculating

“Holy Spock eyes, Batman!”

If you’re trying to avoid any spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises now would be a good time to skip this post and possibly forget you just saw Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s characters filming a scene together in New York this morning.

Catwoman’s Costume Has Ears Now

When Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman costume was first revealed in a preemptive strike on the paparazzi, pretty much everyone who lives a sad, sexless existence writing a gossip blog in their basement immediately noticed the lack of cat ears and went to town trashing the suit. This prompted Anne Hathaway to say we’d only seen 1/10th

‘Let’s Let A Woman Drive The Batpod. What Could Go Wrong?’

“No, no, no. The correct procedure is hands at 10 and 2, then think about shoes.”

While Anne Hathaway spent last night defending the Catwoman costume which apparently does 9/10ths more shit than we even realize (I’m going to read that as, “Comes armed with full-frontal flaps.”), footage leaked of her stunt double

BREAKING: Catwoman is a Stripper

“Just a few more shifts, Selena, and then you can finally afford cat college. Granted, you’ve had the money for a while, let’s just do a few more, for at least another year. — Two more years, two more years and we’re out.”

And Here’s Anne Hathaway As Catwoman In Broad Daylight

So remember when I joked about Warner Bros. only releasing a photo of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman because we’re probably hours away from seeing her in full costume in broad daylight? It’s been those hours.

Here’s Anne – or possibly a stunt double, getting conflicting reports – driving the Batpod on the Pittsburgh…

It’s Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

Probably because she was spotted yesterday on the surprisingly way-out-in-the-open set of The Dark Knight Rises, Warner Bros. released the first official image of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman/Selina Kyle this morning which means we’re only hours away from looking at her prance around Pittsburgh in broad daylight. [Update: Like clockwork.] But let’s focus on the…

**SPOILER ALERT** Batman punches him. With his fist.

Christopher Nolan is meticulously secret when it comes to the plot of his movies, particularly the Batman films, which is why it’s surprising to see how insanely out in the open production on The Dark Knight Rises in Pittsburgh has been so far. The entire…
