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…

It has been a long standing rumor that Liam Neeson made a visit to the set whether or not to film a scene for The Dark Knight Rises. Well, ShowbizSpy interviewed Neeson about his upcoming film and found out that he was on set for only about an hour and a half.
“I can tell you nothing about Dark Knight Rises, seriously,” says Liam. I was on set for maybe an hour-and-a-half and the director didn’t tell me…

Shooting for the film may be over, but that doesn't mean that the rumor mill has stopped. If anything, it is just beginning to pick up steam. MTV, who is known for their hard-hitting journalism when it comes to people related to the Batman films, recently interviewed Liam Neeson. Neeson played Ra's al Ghul in Batman Begins and was linked to a previous rumor back in June. Here is what was said.

While the Nolan Batman films have done many terrific things with the film franchise, one of the best things about the two films is how well the Nolans and David Goyer have been able to choose the correct supporting characters to inhibit their Batman Universe. Mainly the villains; each villain they have chosen has carried much more dramatic weight and meaning to the films. After Christopher Nolan's announcement that The Riddler will not be in the upcoming film, The Dark Knight Rises, many fans now are scratching their heads wonder who will be villain?
Well before I run down the…
