We’ve intentionally not talked about the theater shootings in Aurora, Colorado for a number of reason, but mainly because there has been nothing positive to come from the “news” and speculation/pundits outlets to provide anything of real meaning. However, when someone does something positive, not for their own image, but to make those suffering feel better, it does deserve some attention.
That’s why we are giving Christian Bale the Major Spoilers Hero Award. Mr. Bale took it upon himself to visit the hospital where survivors of the shooting are recovering. According to reports, the actor spent time with each of the patients, and also spent time with those that were the first responders to the crime scene. According to Warner Bros., “Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers.”
Regardless of what you think of the actor or the movie, it is Christian Bale’s actions that speak volumes. This is yet another example of someone who didn’t have to do anything, but did it for the right reason.
The conclusion to Nolan’s Batman trilogy is finally here!
Nearly a decade after taking the fall for Harvey Dent’s death and disappearing into the darkness, a fugitive Batman (Christian Bale) watches from the shadows as the Dent Act keeps the streets of Gotham City crime free. Meanwhile, an elusive cat burglar seizes the chance to strike, and a masked anarchist plots a devastating series of attacks designed to lure Bruce Wayne out of the shadows. Determined not to abandon the people who he once risked his life to protect, The Dark Knight emerges from his self-imposed exile ready to fight. But Bane (Tom Hardy) is ready, too, and once Batman is within his grasp, he will do everything in his power to break Gotham City’s shadowy savior.
Did you go see the movie? Why or why not? What did you think? Was it everything you thought it would be, or did Nolan betray you like that spinning top at the end of Inception? We want to know what you think. Use the comment section below to share your review, thoughts, ideas, arguments, and more, and be on the lookout for Major Spoilers’ review soon!
With The Dark Knight Rises at the box office and Christopher Nolan’s imminent departure from the helm of the Bat-franchise, what better time to do a fantasy casting call for one of the most beloved, cinematic arcs in all of Bat-dom? Of course, we are talking about Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, a seminal DC tale that took Batman to the brink of old age while at the same time reinvigorating a franchise with vital new energy.
With the upcoming release of The Dark Knight Rises, the much-anticipated ending of the Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy, we at Major Spoilers have been discussing what we believe to be the most awesome Batman moments of the character’s nearly 90 years of history. Stephen and I clashed over what the best Batman story EVER would be (I say ‘Joker’s Laughing Fish,’ Stephen’s votes have lately been turning towards the Court of Owls, and Rodrigo likes Justice League Unlimited Bats) but we agree on one thing: The guy gets around! I guess when you haven’t got super-powers, one has to get by with a little help from one’s friends…
As the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises draws near, we’re seeing more and more Batman related stuff pop up on the Intardwebz. Gene Gonzales has an interesting take on Batman that combines bits and pieces of some of our favorite aspects of Batman through the years.
No one expected to see the Court of Owls at the San Diego Comic Con, except for those who went to the Batman panel DC hosted on Thursday. Everyone was given a Court of Owls mask, and Batman writer Scott Snyder took the time to snap this pic.
That guy wandering the hall of the convention center dressed as Batman must have wet himself when that panel let out.
