#DEWgothamcity Explore the Gotham City AND win Dark Knight Rises swag? Yes, Please

There’s a promoted hashtag #DEWgothamcity which is the latest volley of Dark Knight Rises contest virals.

Skip Twitter and head on over to for the 411: .   there are 4 virtual environments to explore, 4 areas of Gotham, unlockable with codes from – you guessed it – Mountain Dew.



The prizes look like a typical array of logo’d shirts, dvd sets and game gear, but we’re sure we saw an autographed script whizz by.  We’ll chug a few Dews for a chance at that.

The Best of Batman on Pinterest

Pinterest is an emerging, content sharing service that allows members to “pin” images, videos and other objects to theme-based collections which they can manage alone or in social groups.  It’s been a while since we did a roundup of Batman on the social networks, so we thought it would be fun to take a more detailed look at this one particular service and pick out the best of Batman on Pinterest.

Top Posts of the Week – Bane who? It’s all Bale, Bruce, Anne and Selina this week

Catwoman, Selina and Anne Hathaway have always been dominant terms in Batman-related searches, for reasons that should be obvious to anyone familiar with the character and the internet’s collective interest in beautiful and sexy women.  We’ve still never seen a complete shut out of Bane since the character was announced.  The balance shifts between Batman/Bruce Wayne/Christian Bale, Hathaway/Selina/Catwoman and Tom Hardy/Bane, and any picture or video pairing Bruce and Selina soars to the top of our popular posts.  But we’ve never seen Bane fall completely from the top 10, and the fact that a Joker t-shirt made it into the top 10 posts and  Riddler Converse was the highest ranking non-TDKR search, we’re starting to worry about the big guy’s self-image.

Clips from The Dark Knight Rises soundtrack, now streaming


The CD liner for The Dark Knight Rises have been circulating for a few days now, fueling speculation based on titles. “A Storm is Coming” we heard Selina Kyle say to Bruce Wayne in one of the trailers, “Mind if I Cut In?” could allude to that dance. “On Thin Ice” could certainly allude to the ice fight between Bruce Wayne and Ducard in Batman Begins… but this is music. Words aren’t very illuminating. You have to hear it. And now you can. 30-second snippets from Hans Zimmers epic score is now streaming from “the sound cloud.”
