I thought it might be cool to feature some unique creations by fans. These could be anything. From edited videos to unique images.
This take is a series of fan made trailers for The Dark Knight Rises. More of these will surely come out as time goes on, but for now let's see what is out there that makes this volume.
This one is an interesting one. As far as we know, Hugo Strange will not be in the film….

I stand here at the till with two Batman games clutched in my hand. Just behind me, my girlfriend rolls her eyes mutters something about it being a waste of money and looks at games for the Wii. It is one of life's great pleasures to root through comic, game and book shops looking for bargains. And so I have dragged my girlfriend in to have a look.
