Internet Movie Database reports that Warner Bros. released the official synopsis for The Dark Knight Rises “ Unfortunately, it doesn’t tell us anything we don’t already know. Even with all of the images that have hit the web over the last few months, we still haven’t the slightest clue as to what the movie is about.” So why bother with a press release that says nothing? Presumably it was to give the website and others a chance to walk back a story that they should have known better than to run. Since the announcement that Tom Hardy would be playing Bane, the simpler fans have assumed he would perform exactly the same role as he did in his original appearance in DC Comics, the Knightfall story arc. Taking a line of dialogue from this scene which they were allowed to hear and interpretting a move of Christian Bale’s as a limp, the more gullible decided this confirmed their “Broken Bat” storyline and sites like IMDB foolishly opted for wording like “Broken Bat synopsis arrives online.”
Warner Bros. has been fairly sporting about all the nonsense, which ultimately generates buzz that is good for the picture. But there’s a limit and that limit is exceeded when such fanciful speculation is dressed up as something more official. Hence:
Warner Bros. recently released the official synopsis for their upcoming, highly anticipated and final entry in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy entitled The Dark Knight Rises. Unfortunately, it doesn’t tell us anything we don’t already know. Even with all of the images that have hit the web over the last few months, we still haven’t the slightest clue as to what the movie is about. In any case, below is the official plot-line the studio released: Every hero has a journey. Every journey has an end. Christopher Nolan will return to complete the epic Gotham trilogy that launched with Batman Begins and reached the stratosphere with the billion dollar blockbuster The Dark Knight. Like I said, there’s nothing there we didn’t already know. The film stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway,Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Gary Oldman. The film hits theaters July 20, 2012 from Warner Bros. Pictures. »
The Christopher Nolan-produced, Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot Man of Steel pushed back to 2013 « The Modern Allegory
Since the grand triumvirate of The Dark Knight trilogy: Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan and David S. Goyer are involved, this is noteworthy, quite apart from a recent internet rumor of a World’s Finest Batman/Superman movie being contemplated at Warner Bros.
Previously set for release in December 2012 alongside a number of highly anticipated films like Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln (starring the towering Daniel Day Lewis and many others) and Quentin Tarantino’s spaghetti Western Django Unchained (which also features an A-list cast including Leonardo DiCaprio in a villainous role), Man of Steel (2013) has been moved to June 14, 2013. Reports indicate that the script by David Goyer, Kurt Johnstad and Jonathan Nolan (as well as edits by Christopher Nolan) needed some refinement, and the production wouldn’t be completed in time for the Christmas 2012 release date.
Hopefully this news isn’t indicative of a bad movie, as Man of Steel is one of my Most Anticipated Films thanks to the filmmaking pedigree and strong cast. Henry Cavill (The Tudors) will don the famous suit as the titular character while Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, and Diane Lane will play as Lois Lane, Jonathan and Martha Kent, respectively. Michael Shannon will depict one of Superman’s toughest villains General Zod. Reportedly, Russell Crowe and Laurence Fishburne have been in talks or cast as Jor-El and Perry White (Clark Kent’s boss). Christopher Meloni (Law and Order: Special Victims Unit) also appears in the film.
Whether or not the renowned character needs another cinematic interpretation (especially so soon after the studio’s last attempt) is up for debate, but given the super cast and filmmakers attached to it hope remains.
Man of Steel will soar into theaters on June 14, 2013.

In re “The Dark Knight Rises rumor: Anne Hathaway Wardrobe Malfunction ‘Too much Catwoman for the costume’”
Let it be true. Amen.
Did Anne Hathaway really punch a stuntman? Or is it a smokescreen to hide leaked Catwoman costume for The Dark Knight Rises
A little bird told Gotham Trending that a photo appeared this morning of Anne Hathaway in the Catwoman costume for The Dark Knight Rises. The real costume, the final costume, and that this picture vanished before it could be shared.
GT suspects the story of Hathaway punching a stuntman was invented to dominate the words “Anne Hathaway” and “Catwoman” in the twitterverse while the leak was plugged.
Which is fine with this reporter. Good things are worth waiting for. Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman is worth waiting for.
