Come on, Batman. You just got three whole block buster movies. So Warner Bros. has confirmed that it’s definitely going to be playing with its Superman toys for a while: you still have to act polite when Clark comes over.
Odd but good! For me, 2012 was the year of “Wow, Matthew McConaughey is a really good actor. I did not see that coming.” So I’m pleased to hear that he’s being considered for the lead in Christopher Nolan‘s sci-fi epic Interstellar, whereas a year ago I would have made this face.
Artist Rafa Torosomehow made the villains of Gotham City look casual. Which, if you’ve ever seen one, they’re anything but. Anyway, Toro created GIFs of Batman’s Rogues and we’ve arranged them from the Tim Burton years through Christopher Nolan. I have just one question, are these villains walking toward Batman or away from him?
Sorry for the snark, but it seems like the only news all week has been either very dubious “scoops” about the future of the Star Wars franchise and even more dubious information about the struggles of Warner Bros. to do anything, anything with its exclusive license to DC Comics characters with or without the Nolans and/or Christian Bale.
So here’s some actual information about Christopher Nolan.
Looks like Christopher Nolan might have another movie to be secretive at us about. According to The Hollywood Reporter he’s in talks to produce and direct Interstellar, a sci-fi flick involving “time travel and alternate dimensions” in which “a group of explorers travel through a wormhole.”
If you’ve yet to see all of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy but would like to keep up with those conversations your friends have been having for the last few years, here’s a great solution. ScreenRant edited together clips of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises that cover all the basic plot points. I’m of the mind you should invest the 7 and a half hours it would take to watch all three in full but hey, not everyone loves Batman as much as I do.
Besides the artist who repaints character dolls, I’d probably say Hot Toys does the best job at replicating an actor’s precise looks in doll form. Their Loki, based on Tom Hiddleston’s character in The Avengers, still takes the cake for me but their recently revealed Bane from The Dark Knight Rises also does a pretty great job looking like actor Tom Hardy. This is also the first Hot Toys figure I’ve seen with its shirt off, which is vaguely uncomfortable. You’ll see why…
