That’s right. Christopher Nolan, the director who gave us the unforgettable Dark Knight trilogy, will not be involved with Warner Bros.’ new Justice League movie whatsoever. Rumors have been circling the interwebs for months making it seem that he would have some role in it’s creation but those rumors were shot down today by Warner Bros. president Jeff Robinov.
I know a lot of people are going to feel down about this but honestly I couldn’t care less. As much as I loved his Dark Knight trilogy and appreciated it’s realism I do not want to see that tone in a future Justice League movie. In fact, I wouldn’t want to see his Dark Knight trilogy connect to Man of Steel or any future DC movies. I’d rather have those stay standalone films, which, according to Man of Steel producer Chris Roven, will be the case. If Man of Steel is successful and kicks off a whole DC cinematic universe similar to that of Marvel Studios’, I want to see a still serious, but less realistic take on Batman. I want to see villains like Man-Bat and Killer Croc; villains that wouldn’t have worked in Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.
Anyways, I just hope DC gets their act together. I feel marvel is killing them movie-wise. Hopefully Man of Steel will kick off something awesome and it won’t be another failure like the Green Lantern movie.
The new trailer for Man of Steel is here! Directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen), written by David S. Goyer and Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight), and starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, and Russell Crowe, Man of Steel hits theaters June 14th, 2013.
Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
It’s being reported that a director’s cut of The Dark Knight Rises will be released on Blu-ray. Additional scenes not available in the the theatrical release would include Bane’s origin and more screen time with Ra’s Al Ghul.
So now according to our reliable spies, we will be able to see how Bane learns to fight plus more scenes involving Ra’s Al Ghul. The new Director’s Cut is said to make the film about thirty minutes longer.
Story-wise, TDKR had it’s problems but personally I still enjoyed it. At the same time I’m looking forward to seeing a director’s cut. Hopefully it will help fill some of the holes in the story.

Pop! Heroes is releasing these new vinyl figures for the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises. I want all three.
In an interview with MTV, Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins, Inception) talks about how great Christopher Nolan is and how excited he is to see the conclusion of Nolan’s Batman trilogy, but doesn’t confirm any rumors of him reprising his role as Scarecrow.
He also talks about his short but significant role in Tron: Legacy, but like The Dark Knight Rises rumors he doesn’t confirm any possible return to that franchise, simply stating he doesn’t know.

No Frelling Way!
We haven’t had any updates from The Dark Knight Rises in a little while, but prepare to get excited all over again, as Entertainment Weekly have a new image of the batsuit slapped across the cover of their latest issue.
The new suit looks even more robust than the last two, with lots of individual plates of armour making Christian Bale’s physique look yet more imposing than it does ordinarily…
So, I guess I was wrong about what I posted yesterday. Ugh, I don’t know what to believe anymore.
I’m sorry but this post is wrong. See Warner Bros denies tweaking audio …
‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Audio Has Been Reworked
Due to complaints from critics and fans alike, director Christopher Nolan has reworked the audio in his new film so Tom Hardy’s dialogue as Bane is more clear and understandable. Anyone who saw ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ prologue featured in select IMAX theaters before ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’ will agree that Bane’s dialogue, due to his mask and the loud background noise, was almost completely inaudible.
According to The Telegraph:
In the new audio the background noise has been lowered in some of Hardy’s key scenes, but the actor has not been asked to re-record his lines. Audiences have responded positively to the changes.
I am glad Nolan gave in and decided to fix the audio. It’s already bad enough Christian Bale growls out all of his Batman dialogue. The last thing we needed were two actors with intolerable voices.
This poster looks amazing and hypes me up even more. I already know some details about what Nolan and his crew have done with the story and how some aspects defer from the comics, but this image can mean so many things. I have no idea how this trilogy will end. I can’t wait to see how Nolan wraps up his masterpiece.
