Batman is Trending: Community, SNL Parody

As anticipation builds for The Dark Knight Rises in July of 2012, we can expect more Batman appearances in other media trying to get a piece of his popularity.  Recent weeks have seen a very enjoyable “Foosball and Nocturnal Vigilantism” on NBC’s Community and a painfully unfunny parody on SNL with Steve Buscemi as Commissioner Gordon:


Community established a certain character’s fondness for The Dark Knight in the season 1 Halloween episode.  Now it seems his prized limited edition DVD (with Chris Nolan commentary!) was stepped on by one of his housemates, who stages a break in to cover it.


SNL put host Steve Buscemi in a mustache to resemble Gary Oldman’s Commissioner Gordon, and parodied The Dark Knight’s tendency to appear and disappear at will in increasingly ludicrous and inappropriate places.  Whatever.
