... resolve and dedication, just the qualities to inspire one of my little boys for about 4-5 years of his life from two and a half till seven-years old.
This was not some passing fancy, no this was an out-right obsession with not one but three heroes, the Canadian Mounted Police, Zorro and Batman. Daniel saluted all three with his self-styled uniform of a brown felt hat and black barn boots, a cape and a Batman sweatshirt. This costume was his daily attire for years. He had to wear it. not only that, he was in character for most of the day. Daniel rode our old horse like a combination... (more)
...at midnight tonight and is projected by industry analysts to have one of the largest opening weekends in movie theater history. The Dark Knight Rises may top the Ledger opening weekend revenues of $198 million, reports Business Week.
The third and final chapter of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, starring Christian Bale as Batman will set a new opening weekend record if it tops The Avengers‘ $207.4 million May debut. The Dark Knight opened in theaters in 2008 to major buzz due in part to Heath Ledger’s death, great reviews and the outstanding performance of Joker. The... (more)
... Thunder finding a publisher and going into print. That all ended, and the real work began when I found a publisher and editor. I’ve heard horror stories about editors, but mine was wonderful. She was, however, ruthless. Her most profound statement to me was, “Holy run-on sentence batman! Try using commas!” She had a great sense of humor and I learned some great lessons in making my sentences readable and full of power. I loved every minute of the process, even the correction.

...on to break box-office records and garnered unprecedented and overwhelmingly positive critical reviews. Even people who said they hated comic book/superhero movies loved “The Dark Knight” And with good reason: it just wasn’t a good superhero movie, or comic book movie or Batman movie. It was a good movie, period.
The movie also was notable for the performance of the late Heath Ledger as the psychopathic, anarchistic mass murdering clown known only as The Joker. Ledger’s interpretation of the character was about as far an actor could get from... (more)
...in the story you might think halfway through it that it’s a spoof of the genre. I mean, this is a movie that has Victor Buono as an action hero, for cryin’ out loud. We’re talking about a guy who’s best known role was probably as the King Tut villain on the “Batman” TV show. In this movie he has a great scene where he drives a car like a battering ram into the barricaded gates of De La Plata’s fortress with one hand on the steering wheel while firing a Thompson sub-machine with the other. And if that wasn’t enough he then jumps out... (more)
...out taking place in New York. Also he had an issue of Uncanny X-Man that depicted an earthquake taking place in Japan. That same month Japan suffered a major earthquake.
This brings me to a comic book he drew back in 2001. It was part of an alternate reality mini series of Superman and Batman called "Generations." What was very different about this series was that the characters existed in real time. The first Generations took place between the years 1939 and 1999, with each story taking place 10 years apart. Unlike in a normal superman book where Lois Lane has barely aged in the... (more)
...are going to try for a third?It’s going to be awfully hard to top Heath Ledger’s Joker as a villain but I think that if the right actor is chosen and is willing to give the same commitment to the role that Heath Ledger did, a third film will be a success. Christopher Nolan’s Batman films have already succeeded in every other level: the acting, the writing and the technical. All those are covered and done amazingly well. But what everybody is going to be focused on is who’s going to be the villain in the third one and who’s going to play it? Johnny Depp as... (more)
...you hear the latest rumor, Angelina Jolie will be Catwoman.”
“I heard it was going to be Johnny Depp as the Riddler.”
“Nah, Phillip Seymour Hoffman will be the Penguin.”
And, it begins.
The speculations and the rumors have already begun to shadow the next Batman sequel before we have already put The Dark Knight to bed. But is Hollywood ready to embrace the dark vision that is the heart of the Batman mythos or will it succumb to tired and true name brand recognition that had ruined the franchise in the past?
Sure, The Dark Knight was one of the... (more)
... light of the untimely death of Heath Ledger, may have seemed overblown, even exploitative. Midnight showings across the country sold out weeks and months in advance, and zealous fanboys peppered cyberspace with declarations of the film's supremacy over everything from Tim Burton's original Batman to sliced bread. And then The Dark Knight opened up and swallowed us all.Christopher Nolan's second offering in the series does more than deliver on its myriad promises - it shatters the glass ceiling previously thought to contain comic book adaptations. Where even the genre's best efforts... (more)

Something really special happened to me while watching THE DARK KNIGHT. Sometime around the part where The Joker and Harvey Dent are having a very revealing conversation in Gotham General Hospital I realized that I wasn’t just watching ... (more)
