In recent weeks we have finally been shown images of Anne Hathaway riding the Bat-pod. We have even been given glimpses of her stunt double in action riding the streets of Pittsburgh, as well. (And even a few of the rumored Bat-wing/Bat-plane, or whatever they plan to call it, and it looks epic as hell, kids.) Sadly, there are many out there who are criticizing the costume Ms. Hathaway is donning already. Shame on all of you. All…

Among our growing throng of Bat-fans, there is a question we all have posed each other at one point or another. Who’s the better Joker? I mean, really?! Can you truly compare these performances? I set out to do just that, kids. I watched both films, having seen them numerous times, and paid attention to only Jack and Heath. Though, I should point out that in order to appreciate either of their performances you must also be looking at the performance of their respective Batman. Obviously, I started with Tim Burton’s Batman. Heath was sure to have at least…

Rumors are everywhere right now. And one of the most talked about ones recently has been the possibility of Joseph Gordon-Levitt re-teaming with director Christopher Nolan on The Dark Knight Rises. No I have to openly admit, I don't really want to be writing this piece just because my belief is that this rumor is almost definitely a rumor, and is going to stay a rumor. And even if it ends up being true, I have no idea what role would fit Gordon-Levitt, that isn't the Riddler. And as we know, Nolan has already gone on record as stating…

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?
