Many of you have already picked up on the subtle, or maybe not so subtle wording in the latest issue of Empire Magazine where David Goyer hints that Batman may die in The Dark Knight Rises.
“The final scene of The Dark Knight Rises is exactly that scene we talked about then,” says Goyer, speaking to Empire from his LA office almost four years later. “It remained completely unchanged. We both knew in our hearts that we were onto something special. I have to tell you, having finally seen everything strung together a little while ago and seeing that scene, I got a complete lump in my throat.”

The Avengers took the box office by storm over the last couple of weeks, rising quickly to the billion dollar mark. The Dark Knight also made a billion dollars when it was released, but with The Dark Knight Rises still a few weeks away, and near the end of the summer schedule, will it be able to make that much money again?
Now that The Avengers has proven itself, we can now shift our attention to the next big superhero movie of the summer – The Dark Knight Rises. Warner Bros. has unleashed two new television spots for all to check out.
As the giant release of the Avengers starts to slow down Warner Brothers has started to rev up their marketing engines for the final installment in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Take the jump and look at the six new posters just released for the up coming film.
In SUPERMAN VS. THE ELITE, Superman’s effectiveness as a super hero comes into question when a new group of super powerful crusaders, known as “The Elite,” appear on the scene. As super heroes, the Elite know no bounds, and are more than willing to kill, even on a massive scale, to stop villainy — putting them on a collision course with the ever-ethical, yet preferably non-lethal Man of Steel.
