Top Posts of the Week: Arkham City’s 15 minutes are up. TDKR back on top. Interest keen in Batman-Bane fight and all Dark Knight location shooting.

Looks like Arkham City’s 15 minutes are up.  The week was full of interest in The Dark Knight Rises filming, particularly the Batman/Bane fight, and the  unflagging interest in anything involving Anne Hathaway, Catwoman and the word ‘sexy.’  Old pictures from the location shooting in Pittsburgh months ago are getting more requests than anything pertaining to the game released only last week.  It is quite an anti-climax after their months of relentless  hype.

Top Posts of the week: Arkham City release, Catwoman costume and skins hold the top spots as TDKR has a quiet week

Filming for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises has upstaged most Batman news in recent months, even when it’s not doing anything set photos from the location shooting in Pittsburgh, of Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman or Tom Hardy’s Bane continue, Bruce Wayne’s Lamborghini and Batman’s Batmobile to generate interest even when there is no fresh news.  But this past week, the news of Arkham City’s Catwoman coming with downloadable skins, a frenzy of searches as to how to acquire and apply them, and the release of Catwoman #2, the second issue of DC Comics heart-stoppingly sexy rebooted Catwoman comic have all but shut TDKR out of the Top tier of net activity.

Top Posts of the Week: Arkham City finally breaks The Dark Knight Rises hold of The Top 10

With the release of Batman: Arkham City only days away, the eagerly anticipated sequel to Rocksteady’s popular Arkham Asylum has finally put a dent in The Dark Knight Rises domination of the Internet and Social Network buzz.  A set video of  Bruce Wayne arriving at a party still held the #1 slot, but it is Christian Bale/Bruce Wayne and he is driving the Lamborghini.  The granting of Catwoman fans’ great wish that the playable feline fatale will have alternative costumes (skins) unlockable within the game seems to have tipped the balance.  So the week belongs to Nolan’s TDKR, sexy Catwoman in the person of Anne Hathaway and in the reboot comic, and to Arkham City.  Other Batman news need not apply.  Sorry NYCC.

Top posts of the week: Warrior boosts Tom Hardy and Bane back into TDKR searches

Remember #thefirerises? Remember that picture of Tom Hardy as Bane? Hardy was the face of  back of head of The Dark Knight Rises pre-production excitement.   Until Catwoman.  After the pictures of Anne Hathaway began to appear, Mr. Hardy couldn’t break into the top 10 leading a trio of camo-painted tumblers into a football stadium.  But now, at last, with the release of Warrior, the net has started to notice him again, and the Bat-searches have remembered this isn’t just “The Catwoman movie.”

3 reasons to be very excited at the thought of Anne Hathaway playing Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises.| Blogcritics

catwoman-selina-kyle-anne-hathaway-the-dark-knight-risesFans may have rejected the lackluster outfit Anne Hathaway wore in the first official picture released from Warner Brothers in a plain zip up biker jumpsuit and goggles that we all hope is not supposed to be the Catwoman costume.   Hathaway’s attempts to defend the awful look just fed the fire, but when she falls back on simply being herself, she is winning major kudos from Batman and Catwoman superfans:

Most of us made the acquaintance of the beautiful 28-year-old actress waaay back in 2001 when she starred opposite Julie Andrews in The Princess Diaries.  At the time, Anne told Access Hollywood, “a lot of questions that I used to get asked were, ‘So, every girl when she grows up wants to be a princess, did you want to be a princess when you grew you?’ And I so wish I’d said what I felt back then, because the truth was, ‘No, I wanted to be Catwoman!’ And now I am… That dream came true, for sure.”

That’s it.  Game.  Set.  Match.

She wanted to be Catwoman.  The way some little girls dream of fairy tale castles, handsome princes, white weddings and My Little Pony (not necessarily in that order), some of us dreamed of being Catwoman.  When modern comics have gone off the rails, it’s because they forgot that core truth: we want to be these characters.  Look, up in the sky, it’s Superman!  You’re a kid, you’re small, you’re weak.  Imagine being able to fly!  Imagine being strong enough to pick up a train and hurl it like a javelin!  We grow up wanting to be these characters.

Ms. Hathaway has clearly not forgotten.  “That dream came true, for sure.”  So far, so good.

Now obviously there is only so much an actress can do if the material misses the mark.  Back when Tim Burton was making Batman Returns, Sean Young was clearly in touch with her childhood dream to be Catwoman.  Her stunts to get Burton’s attention got her a ‘crazy actress’ label and no role, but there is perhaps a better insight into the desire we girls have to become that powerful and sexy feline fatale than there is in what actually hit the screen.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed Burton’s movies at the time, but his Gotham is, by his own admission “a freak show” and his Batman and Catwoman are the very much product of that era’s comics: damaged freaks that no sane person would want to be.  His Catwoman’s power, like so much what comes out of the comics origins, is not a natural part of the woman animal.  Selina isn’t simply beautiful and sexy and smart and strong because she is born that way.  As if beautiful, witty and savvy women don’t occur in nature, her amazing power to make the Dark Knight… rise must be explained with an origin.  It is, invariably, a reaction against oppression, exploitation, or abuse.

We’re getting back to Anne in a minute, I promise.

How exactly does a smart, sexy, witty and talented woman react when she’s been misrepresented in the press? When she is not a damaged psycho that can only snarl and hiss, when she has a sense of humor and a playful instinct for mischief? In Cat-Tales, Selina uses her celebrity as Catwoman to mount an off-Broadway show and uses that spotlight to call out the tabloids about the lies they tell about Batman, about Catwoman, and what really goes on in Gotham after dark.
It’s not exactly the same, but Anne Hathaway recently appeared on Conan and vented her frustrations with the paparazzi – seriously – in a rap in the style of Lil’ Wayne.

That’s… Selina!

That’s my Selina. I don’t know what Messers Nolan, Nolan, and Goyer have written for her, but that woman could play the Selina Kyle of Cat-Tales without bothering to act.
Back when the casting was first announced, Christopher Nolan said when we see the movie in 2112, we will understand why Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy are perf…

Oh wait, I said three reasons, didn’t I?

Sexy. DC Comics is relaunching their universe today and the writer of their new Catwoman comic apparently used the word “sexy” 40 times in an interview. That shouldn’t surprise anyone outside of the comics world. Catwoman = sexy. Everybody knows that. And let’s face it, what we’ve seen of the zip-up biker chick outfit isn’t. But everything we have seen of Ms Hathaway exudes that confidence and good humor, that energy and vivacity that is the essence of sex appeal. I don’t know about still photos, but seeing her interviews of the past few weeks, I think the lady can be sexy wearing sack cloth.
So, Christopher Nolan said when we see the movie in 2112, we will understand why Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy are perfect casting as Catwoman and Bane. In the former case, he is 11 months ahead of schedule.

Top posts of the week: DC Comics Relaunch gets traction with Times Square Johns, Lee event

For weeks, DC Comics and Arkham City have been striving in vain to break The Dark Knight Rises’s stranglehold on trending topics.  Rebooting their entire universe was not enough to get DC Comics noticed, but the company heads Geoff Johns and Jim Lee appearing at a Times Square comic shop where lucky shoppers can purchase the #1 issues of the relaunched titles has finally done what mere YouTube ads for the relaunch could not: broke into the Top 10 of Batman-related news.

Top posts of the week: Anne Hathaway and Catwoman, Sexy and Sexier. Also someone shooting a movie in Pittsburgh.

Not surprising really: the word was sexy.  The combination of the words Catwoman and sexy at Comic Con, Anne Hathaway and sexy in her Marie Claire photos, sexier still working a red carpet in a see-through blouse, dominated the week’s blog posts, social media and searches, even knocking photos and spoiler video from The Dark Knight Rises location shooting in Pittsburgh out of the top spots.  First look at Bane in full costume: not on the list.  First Look at Marion Cotillard on set as Miranda Tate: not on the list. Batman/Bane fight #9.  Bale in the Batsuit, #4.
