In Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises' Batman/Bruce Wayne faces his most dangerous and enigmatic foe yet: the muscular, masked Bane (Tom Hardy). There were a lot of questions left unanswered about his character, and it appears those answers were left on the cutting room floor.
Well, except for an answer to "what the hell does his voice sound like?" which is a question that's been eating away at our collective pop culture consciousness for weeks now.

Hey there, 'Total Recall.' You know how you were supposed to be pretty big movie? Well, hopefully you're sitting down because, well...you're not. You see, there's this little thing called 'The Dark Knight Rises' that isn't a remake of a much-beloved film and it doesn't star Colin Farrell and people actually seem to generally kinda' like it. Yeah, sorry buddy. You didn't stand a chance.

The Dark Knight Rises’ brought closure to Christopher Nolan’s vision of the Batman, which began with ‘Batman Begins’ and extended through ‘The Dark Knight.’ But it also created a gaping hole in the Batman landscape, as fans of the Caped Crusader wonder what they’re going to look forward to now that Nolan’s passion project has come to a close. We might have a suggestion.

Can Superhero Movies Bring Back the "Too" Sequel?

Looking back on the 2012 summer movie season so far, it’s the superhero titles that are most notable, both in terms of box office and critical attention. And the big three, ‘The Avengers,’ ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ are all quite interesting in terms of their context within their respective franchises.
One is a new kind of sequel that intersects and interconnects four other series, and which will spawn a similarly extended sequel of its own; another is a mostly redundant reboot; and the last is the third installment in a contained trilogy that potentially could hatch a spin-off or prequel or some other kind of follow up that isn’t a direct continuation of the primary hero.
Following those films, we had a crazy idea for both the title and direction for Marvel mega movie’s sequel: ‘The Avengers Too.’

Weekend Box Office Report: Playing Catch-Up With 'The Dark Knight Rises'

Since the box office numbers from last week were not formally released until after the weekend passed, we need to play a quick game of catch-up with 'The Dark Knight Rises.' The third and final of Christopher Nolan's Batman movies opened to $160 million, a number that is staggering, but not record breaking. Did it even stand a chance of breaking the $200 million mark and challenging 'The Avengers' for highest opening weekend of all time? Did the tragic events in Aurora, Colorado have an adverse effect on the opening gross? To that second question: yes. To that first question: no.

I'm lucky. I'm lucky I get to write this, and I'm lucky you chose to read it. You like movies, and these have been a rough couple days for anyone who likes movies, because it's been a rough couple days for everyone. Last week, I filed a column about how 'The Dark Knight Rises,' with its big action and urban politics, wouldn't make a bad double bill with 'The Battle of Algiers.' And waking up Friday to the news, I didn't much care about that article or any article about Batman. I doubt you did either.
