DC has only a few years to try and do with Justice League what Marvel did with The Avengers, but so far it hasn’t really come together in the same way. There were the Christopher Nolan Batman movies and the upcoming Man of Steel Superman movie, but they don’t seem to tie in to a larger Justice League film. Or maybe they do…
While I personally really liked The Amazing Spider-Man, and would even call it my favorite Spider-Man movie ever, it couldn’t hold a candle to The Dark Knight Rises or The Avengers in terms of sheer scale. Kevin Smith, normally much more of a DC guy, recently explained why out of the this year’s two summer comic book movie juggernauts, he likes The Avengers more.
Whether this is just wild fanboy speculation or something tethered in reality is unknown at this point, but the Justice League movie rumor mill is spinning like a jet engine over rumors that Joseph Gordon Levitt might end up playing Batman in Justice League.
This next couple of months, we’ll see a tidal wave of sappy Oscar bait movies, but Warner Bros is already pushing hard to try and get some Oscars and Oscar nominations for The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan’s last Batman film. Which Oscars? Pretty much all of them.
If you were wondering when The Dark Knight Rises comes out for purchase, circle December 4th on your calendar. That’s the day the movie will come out on digital download, DVD, Blu Ray and the above cool DVD/Blu Ray combo collector’s edition.
The combo pack also has cool extras like a documentary with all five Batmobiles together for the first time, Ending the Knight which includes 17 featurettes on how the movie was made, a featurette titled The Journey of Bruce Wayne, trailers and art galleries.
