Outside of Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning performance, arguably the most iconic addition to the Batman universe thanks to Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight Trilogy was the Tumbler. The way Nolan created a functional, realistic Batmobile and continued to evolve it over the course of three films was just beyond cool. It was one of those things fans and non-fans alike wanted to own when they walked out of the movie. And while The Dark Knight Tumbler has been available in various different ways, it’s finally getting an Ultimate Collector’s Edition Lego.

Leading up to the release of The Dark Knight Rises, it was easily the most anticipated film in the past five years. Fans and sites like ours scoured around every day looking for new materials and answers to the questions we had about the film. Christopher Nolan knew that. And he also knew the film had some big surprises in store. To help preserve them, especially the fate of Bruce Wayne in the eyes of Gotham City, Nolan ended up filming the scene outside Wayne Manor with different props, and unnecessary actors on set, just so anyone who may or may not have been spying would have no idea what was really going on.

One constant topic of conversation with respect to Christopher Nolan‘s Batman films is the voice Christian Bale used for the costumed character. Is it a great way for Bruce Wayne to create a distinct and exaggerated persona for the hero, or a ridiculous affectation, or something in between? That question can be debated as much as you’d like, but now we’ve got Bale’s own explanation of the voice, which he came up with as he auditioned for the part. In fact, he created the voice as a way to deal with the mental aspect of the character, especially when he (Bale, that is) found out first-hand what it’s like to walk around in that suit.
Bale isn’t a big fan of released audition footage — “they get you at your most vulnerable moment, the bastards,” he gripes — but overall the clip below represents a good, light talk about the Nolan films and the character. It’s refreshing! Read More »

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 »
