Community activists United NY staged a costumed demonstration in Manhattan on Thursday to protest economic inequality on the final evening of the Republican National Convention. The action made more explicit a connection first observed by conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh: the homophonic relationship between Bain Capital, the private equity firm co-founded by Republican 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney, and Bane, the Batman villain of DC Comics and The Dark Knight Rises. While Limbaugh's extremely tenuous connection of the two was designed to cri

Following the release of a roughly 3-minute short last week, director Derek Kwok and Henri Wong of Parabucks Co. have released their full stop-motion animated Batman: Dark Knightfall short, successfully wrapping the tale of Hot Toys' 1/6 scale The Dark Knight Rises Batman fighting the Joker's thugs, a bizarre morping version of the Clown Prince of Crime himself and th
One of the weirder aspects of being a comic book fan these days is that in addition to the major motion pictures based on your favorite super-heroes, you also have the inevitable porn parody to look forward to -- and I'll admit that with Vivid's The Dark Knight XXX, I really was doing just that.

In a familiar development concerning superhero movies and their characters' creators, Chuck Dixon -- one of the two men responsible for Bane, the villain from The Dark Knight Rises -- is giving interviews about sharing the success of his creation. Somewhat unusually, howe
The Dark Knight Rises finally arrives in theaters tomorrow, July 20 (of course if you're a regular CA reader, there's a good chance you're seeing the end of Christopher Nolan's Bat-trilogy tonight at midnight), and to mark the occasion, Warner Bros. Consumer Products sent CA a sizable travel bag full of corresponding merchandise. We've previously taken a
With the release of The Dark Knight Rises coming up on Friday, anticipation for Christopher Nolan's final Batman film has reached a fever pitch. Still, I don't think anyone expected the media hype to get to the level of ridiculousness it managed to achieve this week, when political commentator Rush Limbaugh claimed that the character of Bane was included in the film as part of a vast media conspiracy against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's association with investment firm Bain Capital.

The Dark Knight Rises arrives in theaters on July 20, but those simply longing to see Tom Hardy's Bane surf a camo Tumbler can celebrate early with the reveal of new 1/6 scale action figures from Hot Toys. That's right, Bane and his presumed version of Batman's Tumbler are getting the Hot Toys treatment, and all the trimmings that go along with it. Bane's a pretty spartan dude, so he comes with a moderate amount of accessories such
The marketing for next month's release of The Dark Knight Rises is in full effect, and since they've already got sodas taken care of, that can mean only one thing: Facebook games. This time around, it's The Fire Rises, a real-time st
