Recently, on an episode of the David Letterman Show, Dave apparently blew the lid off of The Dark Knight Rises by revealing a major plot point. Anne Hathaway happened to be the guest that evening. She apologized to Christopher Nolan on the air immediately following Dave’s comments. This story has appeared on the news, and I’ve looked up several articles regarding it just to get the facts. I was not able to see the actual episode, but I saw several clips. First, Dave says… Wait. Hang…

A couple of new rumors have popped online and one interesting bit. The first one is not a rumor as much as it is an interesting thought.

It wasn't until she was done auditioning that she found out it was for Catwoman. Although…

As you'll likely not need to be reminded; when The Dark Knight hit cinemas in 2008 it took the world by storm. Building on what Christopher Nolan had created in Batman Begins, the second film took everything that made the first so good and magnified it.
