ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic-book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Warner opens up the vaults on classic ‘Batman’ auditions, ‘Thor’ ramps up for its November release, and we dig up a tease of the ‘Captain America’ soundtrack, which sounds amazing.
The Dark Knight
We don't have a release date or any idea what it's going to contain in terms of bonus material, but if an image posted by a Polish fansite is to be believed -- and really, if you can't trust Polish fansites, who can you trust? -- we might have our first look at the 'Dark Knight Trilogy' deluxe Blu-ray box set.
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.
Some fans and pop culture junkies might like to think that Superman is the most timeless and iconic of all comic book super heroes, but even the man from Krypton who can bend steel with his bare hands doesn’t have the generational reach of Batman.
