Awesome New Batman Posters

If you follow this link to ComicBookMovie you will come across some amazing fan art to the latest Batman movie, "The Dark Knight Rises".  I've included the above image from the group as it is the most dynamic of the collection.  I like because it shows Batman and Bane locked in mortal combat.  Bane exhibits his brutish muscular strength while Batman is more graceful in his Asian inspired martial arts training.  About them is a whirling cauldron of debris that adds a dimension of chaos to the fight.  At the bottom a crowd of people have formed with all eyes locked on the two foes.  Its as if the fate of the worlds rests with the outcome of the battle. 

A Little Bat Humor To Go

The new Dark Knight Rises trailer, an exclusive brought to us by Nokia, contains a little humor that Christopher Nolan kindly throws into all his movies. This third installment of the Batman trilogy will certainly be as dramatic as the rest but Nolan always finds time to add a little humor at his protagonists expense. At the end of this latest offering Bruce Wayne, as played by Christian Bale,is leaving some function and asks for his car. He's told his wife took it. "My wife?" he asks incredulously. We switch scenes as Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, gleefully drives away. To add salt to the wound Wayne's butler, Alfred, takes particular delight in reminding Bruce Wayne that it "takes a little time to get back in the game". Great stuff. A little comeuppance for the Dark Knight. Check it out above.

A Batman's Father's Day

I spotted this excellent picture over at Devianart by Andy-Shango.  I thought it captured the essence of what is to be a responsible father figure despite all the pressures of the outside world,  Sometimes getting the kids off to school is what's most important.

Happy Father's day to all the Bat Family out there!
