Top posts of the week: Batman and Catwoman finally defeat Bane

For the first time since the public location shooting began in Pittsburgh, Tom Hardy’s Bane was not in the top five search terms, which this week is dominated by Christian Bale (Batman/Bruce Wayne) and Catwoman in two forms:  Anne Hathaway/Selina Kyle in the Dark Knight Rises, and the Arkham City Catwoman, with an emphasis on player dissatisfaction with her costume and portrayal in the sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Top Posts of the Week: Batman finally on top of Catwoman, just in time for Valentine’s Day

Fine, call us sexists.  We at the Gotham Trending office try to remain impartial but we are men, and seeing Catwoman, Anne Hathaway and Selina Kyle beating Bruce Wayne, Christian Bale and Batman week after week for the top spot in his own movie, we can’t help it.  We can’t help but root for the underdog and we can’t help but cheer now that Bruce/Christian/Dark Knight has finally won the day.

Batman Merch: Bane shirts aren’t TDKR but they’re better than the first wave of Dark Knight Rises stuff we’ve seen

There is a folder on our harddrive in the Gotham Trending office called “Merchandise Hell.”   We’re not proud of the title, but the fact is nobody wants to follow those links and write up bits on the New 52 busts, the latest round of Arkham City figures, or DC Direct’s 12″ statues for The Dark Knight Rises.

the-dark-knight-rises-merch-bane-a-chew-toy-for-catwomans-catsIt’s not just that a lot of the stuff is hideous, it’s not just that DC was obviously kept in the dark about Catwoman’s real TDKR costume but didn’t let that stop them since they went into production on last summer’s first photo with the goggles and no ears, it’s not just that Pop Heroes vinyl Bane looks like her cat’s chew toy, it’s that no item is so horrible that the article, blog or website won’t fawn over it.   One or two of these embarrassments to the fandom can be shrugged off, but a steady diet is a strain.

You can imagine our delight, then, at this set of Bane-inspired t-shirts from Superhero Hype.  They’re all based on the comic book Bane from Knightfall, but they’re nice shirts.  There’s nothing wrong with them.  I just ordered a “Got Venom.”

More than offering up a nice collection of shirts, they have restored our faith in the fandom.  Not everyone is still chugging that year-old Kool-Ade that Anne Hathaway is playing Selina Kyle who isn’t Catwoman.

Top Posts of the Week: Bale Hathaway and Hardy, wash rinse and repeat

With the expected glut of Top Everything of 2011 lists and post-holiday lull in news, there was a fallback on older pictures and stories, such as Christian Bale “looking incredibly GQ as Bruce Wayne” and pre-TDKR Anne Hathaway looking unspeakably sexy in a see-through blouse, as well as set photos of Tom Hardy’s Bane from the location shooting in Pittsburgh, and a smattering of old stories on the Batmobile and Arkham City disappointments.  The only exception was the LA Times lack of discretion spoiling a scene from The Dark  Knight Rises just to set the scene for an Anne Hathaway interview.

Top Posts of the Week: Arkham City steals TDKR spotlight but at what cost?

Arkham City is drawing flack for all the promotion they put into Catwoman only to have her spend all her game time with Poison IvyArkham City’s took the top spot from The Dark Knight Rises this week, but Warner Bros. probably wishes it didn’t.  Back in May, the game got off to a terrible start with Catwoman, offending fans with a costume that was instantly proclaimed an “Epic Fail.” It was portent, because the revelation with the games release that Catwoman is a downloadable add on with little contact with Batman or impact on the main story has many fans crying Bait and Switch, and googling ‘bait and switch’ in conjunction with various arkham-related keywords.

Reblog: Catwoman’s Arkham City Skins

Information on the downloadable Catwoman pack with skins for The Long Halloween and Batman: The Animated Series for Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham City. We think Catwoman looks sexiest in purple and are grateful not only for the awesome TLH costume but for this simple information clearing up so much confusion about how to acquire it.  This post includes gameplay video of the B:TAS skin in action, but no spoilerage that wasn’t seen at E3 and elsewhere.

The Long Halloween Catwoman Skin in Arkham CityAlright, updating information on the Catwoman skins for those of us who haven’t been living and breathing these games for years.

First: the explanation on “only with a new game” –  Catwoman is a downloadable pack that comes with both the animated series and long halloween skins.  if you bought the game (ie it is new) then you will get a code in the package to get that download pack for free.   If you rent the game or buy it used the code will have been used, you’ll have to pay for the download but it is still available to you.  So there is no need to worry about some pre-release versions not having her/the skins.

Now, how to “unlock” and apply a skin, no idea yet.   But stay tuned.  There are two Catwoman skins, and it’s clearly labeled on the download pack so this isn’t any kind of spoiler…
