Listen: I love Batman, and, for obvious reasons, I am always up for seeing people who love Batman get unexpected and unique Batman-related presents just because they really, really love Batman. As a result, it was pretty fun to watch the video above, an installment of Super-Fan Builds where a big Batman fan and his presumably equally Batman-loving son are given a custom-made stroller built to look like the Tumbler from Batman Begins.
There's just one problem, and it's a pretty obvious one. You, uh... you know how Batman's origin story goes, right? As cool as it is, maybe an item that makes your kid more like Batman is not the best idea.
The last time Christopher Nolan released a movie, film critics got death threats. That was back in 2012, when Nolan released ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ and the first writers who dared to stray from the positive consensus about the film received waves of overwhelming backlash. After Marshall Fine published his pan, his site and his page on Rotten Tomatoes were both bombarded with angry comments politely requesting he “die in a fire” and hoping someone would beat him into a coma with a “thick rubber hose.”
Just how many times have we watched a young Bruce Wayne witness the murder of his parents? No origin story for the Caped Crusader has been without it, and FOX's Batman prequel series, 'Gotham,' is no different. As the new drama premiered this week, kicking off with the brutal death of Mr. and Mrs. Wayne, a new supercut has hit the web of all the time's we've seen this scene onscreen -- and it's quite a number of times.
In stores this week is The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition box set (which we're giving away a copy of). The set includes all three of director Christopher Nolan's Batman films on Blu-Ray, plus a number of extras, including, as revealed by Batman News in the site's review of the set, a video of Christian Bale's audition for the role of Batman, while wearing Val Kilmer's suit from Batman Forever.
Last week Warner Bros. released details of the highly anticipated 'The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition.' Featuring blu-ray editions of all three Batman films directed by Christopher Nolan, plus additional literature and numerous other extra features, the box set is a dream for devoted fans of the franchise, and ComicsAlliance has partnered with ScreenCrush to give a copy away for free.
Warner Bros. confirmed on Tuesday the details of the long awaited The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition, a deluxe compilation of Blu-ray discs, literature and artwork from the Batman films directed by Christopher Nolan. While there have been DVD and Blu-ray boxsets of these films before, this edition is the decidedly more luxurious product that Dark Knight devotees have been anticipating since the trilogy concluded with last year's The Dark Knight Rises.
In addition to the high end packaging of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises as well as the supplemental features from their existing Blu-ray releases, the Ultimate Collector's Edition comes with Hot Wheels' Batmobile, Batpod and Bat vehicles; art cards by Jock and Mondo featuring the villains of the trilogy; a hardcover photo book of production stills and behind the scenes images from all three movies; and, most auspiciously, an exclusive video conversation between Nolan and Superman: The Movie director Richard Donner, in which the two discuss their respective superhero films and how Donner's enduringly popular work informed Nolan's.
The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition goes on sale September 24 with a list price of $99.97.
Eight years after Legendary Pictures co-produced its first movie with Warner Bros. Pictures, Batman Begins, the company whose name has been attached to nearly every DC Comics superhero movie since is moving on. Legendary could end up signing with Universal, Sony or Fox, according to Variety.
