When people complained about Bane's illegibility during the Dark Knight Rises IMAX previews last December, Christopher Nolan begrudgingly fixed it. But did he go too far in the other direction?
Star Trek: Nemesis might rank pretty low among the other films in the series, but it did give us a skinny young Tom Hardy well before he was Gotham's Reckoning.
This intriguing early screen test shows off Hardy against Patrick Stewart's Picard, juxtaposed with the eventual film version.
Conservative radio goblin Rush Limbaugh has a theory that Christopher Nolan and the Obama administration have become a dynamic duo in the fight against Mitt Romney.
This summer's biggest villain is Bane, which sounds quite a lot like Romney's former company Bain Capitol, for which he's currently under fire for possibly having shady dealings.
It's true that Nolan hasn't shied away from political messages in his Batman movies, but in order for this to be true, he would've had to perfectly select a character created in 1993 that explicitly matched the name of the company of the candidate who might possibly be the frontrunner in the years to come, only to precisely coincide with Obama's attack strategy in the Summer of 2012.
Then again, it's probably best not to feed the troll.
Besides, everyone knows the true origin.
