Top Posts of the Week – Batman and Catwoman still dominate the Top 10

The real life Batman pulled over in his Lamborghini certainly got everyone’s attention, as did a new round of photos released from The Dark  Knight Rises.  But overall, Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway, Batman and Catwoman, Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle are still the overwhelmingly popular keywords.  Bane and Tom Hardy made a showing, although interest seems to wane after the push of a photo is over.  A pity Arkham City didn’t understand that also rans like Marion Cotillard and Gary Oldman never make it into the top 50.

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.

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: Sexy Anne tops Bale, Gordon-Levitt at Golden Globes or First Look at TDKR Batcave

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s 50/50 was nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture and Christian Bale’s Flowers of War was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film,  there was a stunning new picture of Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne “in the Batcave” although all we see of the cave is the Batsuit behind him.  Nevertheless, the top post of the week was the feline fatale, looking her sexy best

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.

“Sorry to spoil things, boys…” Did LA Times overstep on Anne Hathaway Catwoman interview?

LA Times Online’s “Hero Complex” is running an interview with Anne Hathaway where she “Talks The Dark Knight Rises Catwoman.”  As was noted on Twitter, what she actually does is perhaps more reminiscent of her Princess Diaries past, for as was said of the late Princess Diana, she demonstrates the art of saying (almost) nothing with great distinction.

Hathaway talks about the origin of her character in Batman #1 (and narrowly misses insulting Bob Kane in the process!) and its inspiration in screen actress Hedy Lamarr, said to be the most beautiful woman of her day, how she studied the actress for her performance, etc.  Standard actress stuff.  She repeats her defense of the disappointing costume, but she reveals no specifics about her character or the plot.  She merely makes general comments about Selina and her ties to Gotham City, and how any individual Catwoman ties to a creator’s version of the city.

LA Times Interview with The Dark Knight Rises Catwoman Anne Hathaway contains major spoilers

Hathaway herself spoils nothing.  LA Times columnist Geoff Boucher, on the other hand, describes a scene and plot point in detail.   He opens with it so you’ve read it before you knew what was coming.  (An advisory has since been added to the top of the article.)

Could Warner Bros., Christopher Nolan and producers have known this was coming when they gave him access?

Readers are advised to avoid this interview and remain unspoiled, but if you absolutely must, follow the link to the full Hero Complex material.
