Sadly I won’t be in the areas myself until Planet ComiCon April 5 and 6th, but Major Spoilers readers in the KC area, head on down and help out the Warner Bros. viral campaign…because we all know the Dark Knight movie needs more publicity.
Oh, and if you do make it to the Dentmobile and get your picture taken, I have a prize for the first person who sends me their picture holding the Major Spoilers sign in front of the Dentmobile (no Photoshopping allowed).

The New York Times has an article covering The Dark Knight movie, and has four new photos to boot.
In a political context this would politely be called an â€œunintended consequence.â€ (Gotham as Baghdad, anyone?) Mr. Nolan doesnâ€™t deny the overtones. â€œAs we looked through the comics, there was this fascinating idea that Batmanâ€™s presence in Gotham actually attracts criminals to Gotham, attracts lunacy,â€ he said. â€œWhen youâ€™re dealing with questionable notions like people taking the law into their own hands, you have to really ask, where does that lead? Thatâ€™s what makes the character so dark, because he expresses a vengeful desire.â€

I got a phone call this weekend from none other than Harvey Dent, asking me – ME to help him with his campaign to get elected as the district attorney of Gotham City.
Of course there’s a catch. You have to head over to I Believe in Harvey Dent and download a bunch of signs and posters that you print out and decorate your office, room, neighborhood.
Following all that fun, take pictures or videos of your Harvey Dent Campaign exploits and you could be a star in Warner Bros. new viral campaign for the upcoming Batman flick.

Before the Dark Knight movie hits theaters this summer, Warner Bros. will release a direct to DVD anthology of animated stories that bridge gap between the two live action Batman movies.
If only the creator behind this mock trailer would do the whole movie in this same style.
Probably old to some, but new to many.
Simply follow the link.
If you have been checking in with the Why So Serious website, you’ve seen the brightly lit pumpkin get brown and moldy over the last couple of weeks.
But did you ever stop to notice how much of the pumpkin was changing? It looks like it is only half the face – almost like there were two faces to be seen. If the trailer drops on Wednesday, this could be the public’s first glimpse at Two-Face as seen by those who attended Wizard World Chicago a few months ago.

The Dark Knight movie viral website got an update recently, removing the original content and replacing it with the above image. Hmmm… Long Halloween anyone? I would check the site on October 31st to see what happens.

Remember when the viral marketing website for The Dark Knight had a hidden message that said, “See you in December”? Many suspected (myself included) that would be when the first major trailer for the movie would drop, but according to the Omelete, IMAX movies goes may be getting a seven minute preview in front of Will Smith’s I Am Legend.
Very cool news if true, very bad news for those of us without an IMAX theater close by.
Variety had a small tid-bit saying Beatrice Rosen and Joshua Harto have joined the cast of The Dark Knight. There is no info at this time on the parts they are playing, although Harto could be a rather convincing Jimmy Olsen if they were looking to inject some World’s Finest into the flick.
I’m not going to outright spoil it for you this time, but a person on set reported on a funeral scene being filmed for the Dark Knight movie, and someone important dies.
A “Dark Knight Returns” spoiler from a Gutterati working across the road from filming. He described, “a funeral scene being filmed. Tons of white flowers, and all sorts of people dressed to the nines. And, low and behold, on top of the coffin is a large framed picture.
To find out who it is, read his interview at Superhero Hype.
And if you missed it before, Yahoo! Movies has the first Dark Knight Teaser Trailer in HD (that’s high-definition for the Luddites).
