‘The Dark Knight Lives’ Has a Release Date and a New Poster

For a few weeks now I have been releasing through tidbits of information and posters for my new fanfiction series, The Dark Knight Lives. I’m excited to announce that The Dark Knight Lives will arrive on September 25. Yay.

And here’s the newest poster, created by my sister, of course, featuring the one and only Robin.

If you may recall, at the end of The Dark Knight Rises, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Blake Lively was about to become Robin. I always wished to see what that version of Robin could’ve been like and I’m so excited to finally see that vision come to fruition.

Here, on this poster, is what would’ve been Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s rendition of the character. My sister kept the iconic red and green from his classic outfit but she relinquished adding any yellow elements, as it would’ve made the outfit way too gimmicky.

On the poster, he stands as a watchful protector over Gotham after Batman’s disappearance, making him an integral part in this brand new story.

The closer it gets for you to read this story the more excited I am becoming. (And, by far, this is my favorite poster. My sister provided a new vision of what the Robin character can be and I am in love with this rendition.)

If you want to see more of her fan artwork check out her newest website: Phantasy Studio. It’s really cool!

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a mesmerizing day.

I’ve Got a New FanFiction Story Coming This September

Usually, my first post of the day arrives around 10am EST but today I’m so excited to share some fun news with you that I had to write an early morning post.

Earlier this month a lightbulb went off in my brain. For so long I have wished to see the fourth film in The Dark Knight trilogy simply because SO much was being hinted at for a fourth installment; Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Robin, more Catwoman, of course, more Batman. And so it hit me. As someone who has had an absolute blast sharing my fanfiction adventures with you, I decided to take matters into my own hands and write what would be, essentially, the fourth film in The Dark Knight trilogy.

And of course, my wonderful sister was able to provide a jaw-dropping tease as to what’s to come in this phenomenal picture. Continue reading I’ve Got a New FanFiction Story Coming This September

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Biggest Flaw is Its Overbearing Goal to Be Complex/Dark

I’ve just participated in a marathon of The Dark Knight Trilogy spanning a week long and today I finally finished The Dark Knight Rises. It was fun but it was nowhere near as entertaining as either The Dark Knight (which is one of my favorite movies of all time) or even Batman Begins. Why? How could the finale of an incredible superhero trilogy fall just a little flat compared to its predecessors? Today, after watching this film for the fourth time in my life, I think I finally have a definitive answer.

The Dark Knight Rises is a great superhero movie which is apparent with its 8.4 out of 10 star rating on IMDb but what it lacks that The Dark Knight has in such abundance is an easy-to-follow, simplistic storyline.

The Dark Knight follows the growing madness of The Joker and his schemes which takes Batman on quite an emotional journey. There are stunning plot twists and fantastic character developments that leave the viewer riveted.

The Dark Knight Rises tries to build on The Dark Knight’s perfect storyline with an equally complex one and ends up becoming a movie that’s too morbid for its britches. We get it. Christopher Nolan wanted to end the trilogy with a bang but it’s swallowed up in an overly long film that takes its complexity too seriously, leaving one bored and slightly disinterested.

Michelle Pfeiffer or Anne Hathaway: Who Is The Better Catwoman?

The other day I watched The Dark Knight Rises and as I watched the movie I couldn’t help but get excited seeing Catwoman. Catwoman is one of my favorite DC Comics characters but she’s rarely been given a chance to shine. Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy possessed such amazing and classic DC Comics characters and made them epic in ways that unfortunately hasn’t been replicated in the current DCEU (DC Extended Universe.)

And then Michelle Pfeiffer brought Catwoman to life nearly thirty years ago in Batman Returns at a time when superhero movies weren’t as easy and popular to make as they are these days. While the movie wasn’t great Catwoman shined as she permeated her scenes with a distinct femininity and feline awesomeness. But of the two versions of the cat-tastic superhero who plays the role better?
