When it comes to comic book movie castings, this sort of outrage is nothing new. Just about every announcement comes with some sort of protest, as comic book fans have their own preconceived notions of what the big screen version of their favorite hero or villain should look and sound like.
It's bittersweet to think that 'The Dark Knight Rises' marked the end of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, considering many moviegoers were in agreement that it was not only the highlight of the summer, but also the best of the three films. And yet, it's sad to see it come to an end.
On the other hand, there's still more images and footage to be seen. 'The Dark Knight Rises' DVD and Blu-ray edition hits this December 3, and will be filled with a lot of extras everyone can enjoy. But while we're waiting to purchase what will most likely be a treasured edition to our movie libraries, newly released photos of a rarely seen photo shoot for 'The Dark Knight' give us a closer look at another iconic moment from the movie trilogy -- Heath Ledger in full Joker makeup and costume.
When we were at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego, we got to see a screening of the upcoming action flick 'Dredd.' While we didn't get a close look at our guy Karl Urban, (duh, 'cause he kept his helmet on for the entire film) we did get a close-up snapshot of Lena Headey as Madeline “Ma-Ma” Madrigal. Let's just say, we were a little more than frightened.
