    Here’s Everything Wrong With The Dark Knight Rises in Just Over Three Minutes [Video]

    A select group of fans weren't exactly kind to the odd missteps present in The Dark Knight Rises when the move first released. The Aurora shooting tempered things, of course, but the reality is that Christopher Nolan made some particularly odd choices in the film. A number of complaints revolve around Bane's voice, but the rest of the movie isn't exactly without fault. Thankfully, CinemaSins has gone and counted all the things that were terribly wrong with the movie so we don't have to!

    “Gotham High” Would be The Angstiest Comic Book Movie Ever [Video]

    Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy complete may have only just reached its epic conclusion a few months ago, but you can bet that DC Comics and Warner Bros. are already hard at work figuring out an excuse to squeeze out another film and capitalize on the series' success. The guys and gals over at Movieclips Trailers have a suggestion: Turn Batman's origin story into a high school dramedy.

    Batman Got His Ass Kicked, And It Was Fantastic: 21 Thoughts On The Dark Knight Rises

    Christopher Nolan's epic Batman trilogy is officially in the books. All in all, it took us nine years, $585 million in total budget, and hundreds of thousands of man-hours to get here. Which, naturally, means it's time to make judgmental, pithy comments about it. Oh, The Internet.

    Hathaway Could Be Convinced to Consider Catwoman Collaboration

    Even if you haven't already seen The Dark Knight Rises, chances are you've been made aware to the fact that Anne Hathaway portrays Selina Kyle. As in, Catwoman. Not that it's ever explicitly stated in the film. There's also talk going around as to what will happen now that the trilogy of films is complete and what it means for those who have starred in them. Perhaps, eventually, there could even be a Catwoman spin-off.

    Nokia’s 3D Map Lets You Explore Gotham City, Sort Of

    Nokia's marketing campaign with The Dark Knight Rises has just reached new heights with the launch of its 3D map of Gotham City, and here it is in all its glory. Seriously though, that's as far as the zoom goes, so it's not actually a map like Google Maps.

    We Taste the New Mountain Dew Dark Berry for The Dark Knight Rises

    We recently received a black box with green lettering here at Geekosystem HQ. They must have known our color scheme. Upon further examination, it was for a collaboration between Mountain Dew and The Dark Knight Rises. The box houses a bottle of Mountain Dew's new Dark Berry flavor, and a thermo can for the original neon green flavor. Of course, we were eager to put the new liquid to our palettes, and we recorded the results.

    New Dark Knight Rises Trailer Looks Great, Features Bat-Quip About the Batplane

    It's been a long time since we had a new trailer for Christopher Nolan's latest Batman film The Dark Knight Rises, and this one doesn't disappoint. Not only do explosions abound, there's also a totally sweet skyjacking, some shocking destruction, and tantalizing hints about the actual plot of the movie. And it's just a hunch, but I have a feeling that "it's not a car," is going to be an oft-quoted line come this summer.

    New Dark Knight Rises Trailer Hits Theaters

    Last week, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows opened in theaters. It's a good flick and all, but almost as exciting is the fact that the new trailer for the final installment of the Christopher Nolan's Batman films The Dark Knight Rises is running in front of the Robert Downy Jr. detective flick. Guys, it looks pretty amazing.  See it, in all its glory, after the break.

    Allow Us To Explain: Bane

    I've been looking forward to this article ever since it was announced that Bane would be appearing in The Dark Knight Rises, and not just because the title rhymes.  I've been looking forward to it because Bane is awesome, and not many people outside of comics fans have much of an idea of who he is.  This is because his appearances in media outside of comics and cartoons have been pretty much limited to two: he was an almost unnoticeable tertiary badguy in that movie-that-shall-not-be-named Batman & Robin, and he was the first boss fight in Batman: Arkham Asylum. But there's much more to Bane than just "the Mexican wrestler guy who's on steroids," so allow me to explain why he makes my short list of awesome Batman villains that most people don't even know exist. (Which also includes Mr. Zsasz.  Yes, I freaking loved Batman: Arkham Asylum.)

    Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy are Catwoman and Bane

    This is not a rumor.  It's in the freaking New York Times. The Dark Knight Rises will star, among others, Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, an Tom Hardy as Bane. At least we now know, at long last, that Tom Hardy's beard has nothing to do with his role in TDKR.

    Allow Us To Explain: Hugo Strange

    If you have been following gaming or movie news in the past month, you may have come across a man called Hugo Strange.  Not only has the psychologist been revealed as a major character in Batman: Arkham City, he keeps being mentioned in the swirling gyre of rumors surrounding Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises.  (Probably because Tom Hardy has been confirmed to play a role in the movie, but nobody knows who he will be, and so the gears of fan speculation are grinding.  Our hopes are pinned sky-high on Tommy Elliot). We know first hand that there are all kinds of geeks in the world, and not all of their interests overlap, and so fans of The Dark Knight and Batman: Arkham Asylum might be wondering who the heck this obscure Batman villain is, what gives him any appeal, and what his role as antagonist may mean for a plot. Allow us to explain.
