Relive Five Seasons of ‘Breaking Bad’ in 7 Minutes

Breaking Bad Pilot Bryan Cranston

Between returning favorites like Homeland and Eastbound & Down, and promising new shows like Masters of Sex and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, it’s certainly not like there’s any shortage of fun stuff to watch on TV right now. Even so, we can’t help but miss Breaking Bad‘s Heisenberg. We spent five seasons following his journey, after all. The TV landscape feels a bit more empty without him.

Fortunately for those of you suffering from Walt withdrawal, there’s an easy fix. One devoted fan has put together a seven-minute video tribute to the world’s greatest meth cook, covering all five seasons of his epic arc. Check it out after the jump.

Red Hood Dark Knight Legacy

Though it was released over a year ago, there’s still some debate as to the ending of Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises. Is Bruce Wayne alive, or a figment of Alfred’s imagination? Is John Blake going to become Robin, Nightwing or a new Batman? While there are certainly arguments to be made over the first question, the answer to the second is much more cut and dry. Don’t forget Bruce Wayne’s quote from Batman Begins: “As a man, I’m flesh and blood; I can be ignored, I can be destroyed. But as a symbol…as a symbol I can be incorruptible. I can be everlasting.” Even though John Blake’s name is inexplicably “Robin,” the film ends with him rising to become the next personification of that symbol, fulfilling the point of the entire series.

Audiences will see a brand new Batman in theaters in 2015, but we’ll likely never get to see Nolan’s version of Blake’s story. So director Brett Register and other fans of Nolan’s series have created a fan film called The Dark Knight Legacy. It’s set one year after the events of The Dark Knight Rises and follows John Blake as Nightwing, who must defend Gotham City from a new villain known as the Red Hood. Check it out below. Read More »

Batman Superman

That sound you just heard was Pandora’s Box opening. Yes, the flood gates have officially opened — and opened wide — on fan reactions and mashups for Zack Snyder‘s July 17, 2015 film Batman vs. Superman. All we officially know about the film is the cast from Man of Steel, including Henry Cavill and Amy Adams, will be back, and Ben Affleck will join them as Batman. Bryan Cranston has been rumored to be playing Lex Luthor. No matter what you read, however, that is nothing more than a rumor at this point.

Still, it’s a fun rumor and it adds a third dimension to a viral movie trailer that’s making the rounds. YouTube user Soylent Brak 1 took footage from Man of Steel, Elysium, Breaking Bad and more, and put it together into a pretty convincing early look at what Batman vs. Superman could be.  Read More »
