The Dark Knight has risen: 50 things you never knew about Batman
Every day for the last 50 days, we've been sharing information on Gotham's protector, The Goddamn Batman. Now, as the Dark Knight rises in, um, The Dark Knight Rises, we give you all 50 trivia tidbits in one gigantic injection of awesome.

Review: The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises
Me, I've always been a fan of Christopher Nolan more than I have Batman. Don't get me wrong, I was wowed by the reinvention of Batman Begins and the wallop of The Dark Knight, but I'll always choose the sleight-of-hand of The Prestige or the cerebral jolt of Inception given the choice. The Dark Knight Rises is a stunning piece of work, gigantic in scale with hugely ambitious themes, but Nolan's contribution to the Batman legacy – and indeed the superhero genre as a whole – is to make these films more about the men behind the masks than the heroes they portray: the guys who make the magic happen.

Is this the fastest anyone has ever said 'Rated PG-13' on film?

Short answer: yes. Full Dark Knight Rises TV spot here, Mr Fussy.

Sorry, this new TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises will have to do

It's only 30 seconds long, but we're all bloody knackered, okay?

EDIT: Never mind, I found a better one. Always working, me.

9 movie mumblers who still have clearer diction than Bane
Debate is STILL ongoing on whether or not Christopher Nolan has cleaned up Bane's incomprehensible dialogue in The Dark Knight Rises: some say new scenes are crisper, others say he's more mumbly than ever. One thing is for sure, the following nine guys - even with their very different speech impediments - are still easier to follow than Bane.
