  7. It’s Official: Christian Bale Will No Longer Play Batman

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    It is official: Christian Bale is hanging up the cowl. He will no longer play Batman-- for the future Justice League movie, or in any other capacity. The news isn't surprising. He's been open about how he'll only wear that suit for one man: Christopher Nolan, and since Nolan's been pretty adamant about not returning to Gotham City, well... Bale first donned the cape in 2005 for Batman Begins, relinquishing the costume last year after The Dark Knight Rises. He had a solid seven year run and now feels that it is time to move on.

  9. Liam Neeson Always Gets the Last Word [Video]

    Supercuts are perhaps one of the greatest gifts the internet has blessed mankind with.

  10. “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.

  11. Gear Up For The Finale Of The Dark Knight Trilogy With This Epic Trailer

    this exists

    Some clever folks spliced together the trailers for the entire Christopher Nolan Dark Knight trilogy, giving us an opportunity to refresh our memory of the saga in a neat little 5-minute package. It's actually kind of remarkable how consistent Nolan managed to keep the look and feel of Gotham throughout his three films, and frankly, watching this franken-trailer is making me as emotional about The Dark Knight Rises as ever.  To those of you going to the midnight release tonight, I hope you have a lot of fun, I hope it lives up to our hopes and dreams, and I hope you have all of the feelings about it in the days to come. Enjoy watching Gotham's reckoning! (via Blastr.)

    Things We Saw Today

    The Doctor finally gets to be a ginger in this Little Mermaid/Doctor Who mash-up. Artist Lar deSouza even made Flounder into K-9 but made sure to put a stipulation on his tumblr post, "Don’t get excited for a series though. I’m exhausted just by the thought of doing a dozen more Princess Who’s!" Pretty please! With sugar on top! I've already done one FemmeDoctor cosplay group, I would totally do another in this vein.

  14. Nice Try, Marion Cotillard, We Don’t Believe What You Just Said About Your Dark Knight Rises Character

    Lies Damned Lies

    Christopher Nolan is known for being extra-secrative about his films, especially his Batman films, but that doesn't stop fans from speculating on the tiniest clues. In the case of Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, who's playing Miranda Tate in The Dark Knight Rises, there was next to nothing to go on but the actress has gone on the record to shoot down one really big fan theory. Hit the jump to find out what it is. That is, if you want to know, we'll obviously be discussing spoilery things from here on out.

  18. 10 of the Fastest Promotions in Geekdom

    Power Grid

    We present a list of folks who were never intended to rise as high as they did, or, at least, not that quickly. Some of them are battlefield promotions because everybody else was stone cold dead at the time. Some of them were promoted because of a sudden and unexpected increase in their utility to the forces that controlled their promotion. Some of them simply weren't ready for the responsibility.

  20. The 15 Best Exercises from Training Montages

    A remake of 1984's Karate Kid comes out this weekend, where the main character learns Kung Fu. We're just as confused as you are, but, we do fondly anticipate one thing: another entry into the long cinema tradition of training montages in action movies, full of kicks, punches, defeat, perhaps a loss of hope, and then comfortingly certain triumph. But the other thing that training montages have to be full of is things that would make even professional personal trainers raise an eyebrow. We've collected fifteen of our favorite training montage exercises, from the ones that made us go: "...what is that even supposed to do?" To the ones that made us go: "WTF THAT IS HARDCORE."
