Dark Knight Rises Set Wedding of the Day

Young newlyweds Rich and Michele were tying the knot in Pittsburgh -- at the same time and place that The Dark Knight Rises was filming a fight scene.

Needing outdoor wedding photos but blocked by Batman, the crew came to the support of the couple, who even got a tour of the Tumbler.

When Gotham is in ashes, you have permission to kiss the bride.

Christian Bale has arrived at Aurora, CO's Swedish Medical Center to visit many of the recovering victims of last week's tragic shooting.

A movement has been circulating on social media networks for Bale to appear as Batman, but it seems the actor made a tasteful choice to leave the cape and cowl at home. More pictures of the visit can be seen here.

Pomplamoose of the Day

Originally set to come out at the end of last week, musical duo Pomplamoose's cover of the Danny Elfman Batman theme was tastefully delayed.

After the prologue, the video picks up from where their last video left off. Like all things Pomplamoose, it's short, sweet, and pretty fun.

Breaking Batman of the Day

Favorite

A brilliant mashup of Breaking Bad and the Batman films. Chris O'Donnell makes a great Jesse Pinkman, and look out for a special guest star at 1:45.

If you're not sick of Batman by now, that's good. He's having a big month.

Chicago-based comedy troupe Octavarius explores a little-known side of the Dark Knight -- a side that Christopher Nolan is too afraid to reveal. Schumacher, maybe.

A new study of the aerodynamics of Batman's winged attire concludes that the caped crusader certainly can fly over Gotham City, but that when it comes to landing, his gear is a suicide waiting to happen.

Student physicists at the University of Leicester, in a paper titled "Trajectory of a Falling Batman," determined that Batman's velocity as he approached street level -- 50 mph -- would be too great for him to survive without serious injury.
"If Batman wanted to survive the flight, he would definitely need a bigger cape," co-author David Marshall suggests helpfully. "Or if he preferred to keep his style he could opt for using active propulsion, such as jets to keep himself aloft."
