How can I begin to describe the final installment of the Dark Knight trilogy? Well, let’s just get started.
With our returning cast members Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman; Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox; Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon; and Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, we are immediately reminded why we venture into the darkness of Christopher Nolan’s Gotham. We have several new faces joining the cast as well. Tom Hardy as Bane; Joseph Gordon Levitt as Officer/Detective John Blake;…

The sequel to Batman Begins blew us all away. The first of this new re-invention of the Caped Crusader and his never-ending war on crime was a modest film, but whetted our appetite for more. The set up brought us an incredible buildup for the second film that many of us Bat-fans would not have guessed was possible. An incredible teaser campaign began, with nothing more than the sound of Mr. Heath Ledger’s terrifying voice as…

After months of speculation about Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing various roles in The Dark Knight Rises, Warner Bros. has finally announced that they have been cast. But with the announcement, we are left with a couple of questions regarding their roles.
There is already speculation regarding Cotillard's role in the film. Could it be a role that she plays in the beginning of the film and later is revealed to be Talia al Ghul towards the climax of the film? Or is it something completely different as the love interest for Bruce Wayne after Rachel's demise?

So a ton of things to go over today.
The first thing is that according to Variety there are a couple of new cast members said to be in The Dark Knight Rises. Daniel Sunjata, Burn Gorman and Diego Klattenhoff are now in The Dark Knight Rises. While none of the roles have been revealed (as expected) there are some rumors as to what roles they are set to play. Sunjata is said to play a special forces operative, Gorman a supporting role, and Klattenhoff a rookie cop. Here is what they look like.

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…
