Awesome Fan Made Movie Posters Celebrating The Dark Knight Rises | Mole Empire

The Dark Knight Rises movie has ended an epic and dramatic Batman trilogy, and just like after any trilogy, nostalgia and the need of comparison with previous movies kick in among fans. It may be because we’re talking about the most beloved hero of all times or it may have something to do with The Dark Knight Rises being the most awaited movie of the summer, keeping its number 1 position in the box office. But it’s also because Christopher Nolan’s entire trilogy is a masterpiece and the last piece of the puzzle brings a suspenseful and much awaited closure to this trilogy.

Fan made movie posters have been flourishing on the internet like crazy in the past few months, so we’ve gathered a gallery of some of the most original designs to celebrate the ending of this brilliant trilogy. Have you seen The Dark Knight Rises yet? With three great movies, it’s difficult the best one! With The Dark Knight still being considered the greatest movies of all time, we’re curious to know if The Dark Knight Rises exceeded the expectations of the public.

Guy Makes Papercraft Style Superhero/Cartoon/Video Game Characters Out Of Beer And Soda Cans

Japanese artist Macaon makes figures of famous characters out of cut up beer and soda cans. No word if he needs somebody to help drink all those beers, but I know somebody interested if he does. SPOILER: It’s me. Shocking, I know, but I believe in supporting the arts.

Hit the jump for a ton more including some Toy Story, Pokemon, Mario and I forgot what else.

DC COMICS – Batman – Death Comes to Gotham panel recap

Scott Snyder’s next big story is about to begin and we have the info on how it’ll impact the Bat-books!

  • Panel begins with a plug for DC’s We Can Be Heroes program.  Aiming to help the hunger crisis in the horn of Africa, text “heroes” to 80888 to make a $10 donation.  DC will match it.
  • Panel is Scott SnyderGreg CapulloKyle HigginsPeter TomasiGregg HurwitzDavid Finch and James Tynion IV.
  • Snyder thanks audience for their support and response so far to ‘Death of the Family.’  Says Batman fans are the best in the world and he’s overwhelmed by the support.
  • “First question: AvX… who wins?”  Synder asks.  He and the audience then yell “Batman!” at the same time.
  • Speaking about the Joker, Snyder says he thinks he’s Batman’s family.  He could have picked any kingdom in the DCU to be a villain in.  He really believes he’s come to Gotham because Batman is his Bat-king and he’s his court Jester.  Joker challenges Batman to make him stronger.
  • Teases more favorite Batman rogues will appear in back up stories. (Crossing fingers for Bane)
  • Joker also has a secret on Batman that will come out later.
  • “We’re employed by DC Comics but we work for you.”  – Capullo.
  • Grant Morrison and Chris Burnham then take to the stage.  Huge applause.
  • TALON #1 has Talon coming back to Gotham since he fled.  He’ll found out what happened in the wake of the ‘Night of Owls‘ and hinted at numerous cameos.
  • Joker story to have “huge fallout” for NIGHTWING.
  • We’re then shown awesome assorted covers with heroes having Joker’s face (provided below because I love you all).
  • Tomasi says BATMAN & ROBIN to have “crazy emotional stuff.”  Very focused on assuring Damian and Batman have a strong father/son dynamic.
  • BATMAN & ROBIN ANNUAL #1 will lay groundwork for Joker tie-in.
  • CATWOMAN tie-ins “extremely fun” because of her interactions with Joker.
  • Grant says BATMAN, INCORPORATED definitively wraps up the story he started in BATMAN & SON.  It’s “the big finale.”
  • BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT’s Scarecrow story gets “bigger, darker and enormously grand in its scope.”
  • Snyder hints at Riddler playing a role in an upcoming big story.
  • Focus on Harley Quinn & Joker’s relationship will continue in SUICIDE SQUAD.
  • Joker spent his year away observing each Bat-family member and will attack them based on their weaknesses.
  • Nightwing was never a member of the Teen Titans in the New 52.
  • Fan asks to see Nightwing interact with Titans.  Higgins says he had no plans but then happily said he’ll work it in.
  • Question: “Any plans for Bat-Cow?”  Answer: “Wait till you see what Joker does to him!” Grant jokes… or is it a joke?  Run, Bat-Cow!!!!
  • The Terminus story in BATMAN & ROBIN was trimmed down by 2 issues so it could dive into ‘Death of the Family.’

Now feast your eyes on some awesomely disturbing covers.

This Batcave made of 20,000 LEGO bricks is fit for Bruce Wayne

But he’d probably make Alfred assemble the entire thing. Weighing in at more than 20,000 LEGO pieces and over 100 pounds, this light-up Batcave diorama by Carlyle Livingston II and Wayne Hussey comes tricked out with the Batmobile, Batboat, Batcopter, Batwing, Batplane, and a few Batcycles for good measure. (It took 800 hours, so mint rides are a must.)

Furthermore, the Batmobile spins on a motorized turntable, the wall rack of weapons and costumes cycles, and the Batplane can be lifted for takeoff. Throw in the Batpole and a Batcomputer filled with Arkham rogues, and you have probably the best LEGO Batcave ever built. Click on the below photos to view in full.

Rare ‘Dark Knight’ Publicity Photos Show Off Heath Ledger as the Joker

Warner Bros.

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-rayedition 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.

 

The late Ledger transformed the Joker into one of the most warped on-screen villains of all-time and made “Why so serious?” an overused catchphrase of the 2000s, both of which earned him an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor following his death. Thanks to Reddit user tone_is_everything, we can now commemorate his performance with some rarely seen publicity shots from the second Batman flick.

Although very few information was provided along with these images, we realized through a side-by-side comparison that they were probably taken for use in the official movie posters:

Grand Theft Auto: Gotham City – Geek Art

Here’s a great piece of geek art for a video game I wish actually existed, Grand Theft Auto: Gotham City.

One of the Reddit commenters suggested that if this was a game, you could work your way up from a minor thug-for-hire, teaming up with Batman’s villains along the way, “narrowly escaping the Bat throughout the story… Escalating into one of Batman’s biggest foes…” I love it! Rockstar Games needs to get on this.

I believe that GTA San Andreas has a Dark Knight Begins/Gotham City Mod. I’d still like to see it as an actual game though.
