More Dark Knight in 2011???????

New Jersey's Courier-Post talked to Batman Begins and The Dark Knight executive producer Michael Uslan, who expects the third installment of the Christopher Nolan-directed films, starring Christian Bale, to hit theaters in 2011:

Uslan will be onboard as executive producer for the "Dark Knight" sequel, which he estimates will be theaters by 2011. As for the identity of the next round of Batman's supervillains and love interests, Uslan remains tight-lipped. "It's one of those deals where if I told you, I'd have to kill you," he says with a chuckle.

Jonah Nolan sets us straight


So by now we all know that The Dark Knight has been nominated for 8 Oscar’s. BUT, it wasn’t nominated in top categories such as Best Picture, Best Director (Christopher Nolan…WTF?), and Best Adapted Screenplay. Co-writer Jonah Nolan sent his reaction to the fans at DarkCampaign.com:

hey — not sure who to address this to as it looks like a collective effort, but I just wanted to pass along my thanks.

It's truly humbling that you guys would take the time and effort to try to get the film recognized. I, like you, was disappointed that Chris didn't get some recognition this morning, but for Heath and so many of the people who worked so hard on this thing to get nominated is thrilling.

Any nomination for a comic book movie is a thing of beauty no matter how you slice it, and that takes the sting out a bit. Besides, I've been to the big show before, and, like any of these things, it's a little disappointing. Did you know it's not even an open bar once the show starts? At least this time I would have remembered to bring a little cash so I could buy myself a drink after losing.

The best part of this experience is seeing other people getting passionate about the film the way that we did. It has been a truly incredible experience. So thank you again.

best,

jonah Nolan


We, as fans, what the best for our heroes…including the Gold Statue. However, in true hero form, Jonah is telling us, it’s just an honor to be included.

Spiderman has friends in high places...




After the British Telegraph printed a list of 50 facts you may not know about Barack Obama -- which included the tidbit that he collects Spiderman and Conan the Barbarian comic books -- the folks at Marvel Comics were prompted to act.

"When we heard that President-Elect Obama is a collector of Spider-Man comics, we knew that these two historic figures had to meet in our comics' Marvel Universe," said Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "A Spider-Man fan moving into the Oval Office is an event that must be commemorated in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man."

And next week, a short comic adventure featuring both icons will hit comic book stands.


I can't wait for the Captain Canuck comic with Stephan Harper in it.....HAHAHAH!!!

The Commissioner passes...

Pat Hingle, a veteran actor whose career included a recurring role as Commissioner James Gordon in Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, has died after battling blood cancer. He was 84.
According to IMDB he has appeared in more than 190 film and TV roles. That's pretty amazing, concidering that Tom Cruise has only done slighty more than 30 and we are sick of him already (well I am)
