The Dark Knight Concept Art illuminates dark origins of Joker’s Bank Robbery Gang

the-dark-knight-when-nolan-was-good-joker-concept-art

While posting these rarely seen pieces of concept art from “The Dark Knight,” that were created by Rob Bliss (“Watchmen”), I realized there was a segment of Christopher Nolan’s recent Q&A session that was pertinent and that I hadn’t yet posted. To catch you up, Nolan was at the Water Reade Theater in New York’s Lincoln Center as a special guest of the Film Society, he discussed working with Heath Ledger and specifically the filming of the opening scene where we are first introduced to Batman’s nemesis. You can either watch the video below or just read the transcript, both are provided.

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

Yesterday, Today and probably through to July, it’s Batman, Catwoman and Bane – Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy – in the #1, 2 and 3 spots.  The only question for a month has been which particular story or picture will light up the net this week.  Not surprisingly, it’s Mr. Bale looking oh so suave in character as Bruce Wayne, and Ms Hathaway out of character in a see-through blouse.  Mr. Hardy is more popular on set, in the photos from last summer’s location shooting in Pittsburgh, than in any of the officially released studio stills.

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.
