Batman The Dark Knight

The trailer for part two of the animated version of Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns has hit the internet and it’s worth a look. The story picks up right where it left off in part one (Go figure) with Batman’s return to Gotham City with an all new Robin in tow.

Things get complicated as both Gotham City Police and a recently released Joker try to hunt Batman down. Then we get the scene we’ve all been waiting for … Superman is ordered to take down the Batman and all hell breaks loose as these two heroes face off.

I’m still having some trouble with Peter Weller’s voice work on this. Maybe it’s just me , but I can’t feel any emotion in his voice. Is it just me? Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comment section below.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 will be released on all formats including digital download in early 2013.

When the head NerdBastard in charge asked me to take a shot at the new Batman – The Dark Knight Rises trailer I thought, “Sure no problem, Batman stuff is easy. The trailer probably kicks ass.” Then I watched the trailer. Met me on the other side after watching the trailer . . .

Gut punch.

It felt like I was in the hospital room of a dear friend in pain with no way to help except . . .  just be there.

“Not everything . . . not yet.”

That line from Batman, in Bruce Wayne’s voice, not the Batman’s, was a shock, face full of cold water in the morning. This is not gonna be the usual training comeback montage of the movie hero we’re used to. This is going to rip the band-aid off and face the pain.

My prediction:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is going to be Robin . . . or Nightwing. Yes he is a cop, that just gives him some training. No matter what everyone else says, he will don a mask in this movie.

Tell us what you think in the comments section below.

Tell me I am full of shit . . .

Brain-dead . . .

Stupid . . .

Crazy . . .

Just comment about something . . . anything . . .

I know you’re out there . . .

I can hear you breathing.

The Dark Knight Rises is out in theaters on July 20.

The Countdown continues for the highly anticipated film of the summer, The Dark Knight Rises, and we here at Nerdbastards have been keeping our  ear to the ground for any new tidbits of information and we have received a secret transmission from Nolan headquarters.

In December we got to see the masked villian, Bane, in all his creepy gravely voiced goodnes,s and this 5 minute prologue introducing Bane was rated by the MPAA as PG-13.  Now the MPAA has finally decided the rating for the film as a whole, and it should be no surprise to anyone that they decided the rest of the film can keep the same rating of PG-13. While some may have been expecting a darker film to end the series, which would then receive an R-rating, it is the film’s best interest to be available for a larger audience demographic. Plus, it isn’t like this rating is anything new for the current Batman trilogy installment seeing as the last two films, Batman Begins & Batman: The Dark Knight,  have consecutively received PG-13. Of course the naysayers will complain that the film doesn’t have enough “blood & gore” or that the violence demonstrated is easily available to young children who will replicate what they see.

On that front I have this to say, “Grow Up!”If you want to complain about voilence being so accesible why don’t you also look at the videogames, television shows, and novels that are being produced every day that have no “Child-Proof” filter. More and more children are watching and interacting with violent scenarios in their day to day lives, it is not the job of the MPAA to keep “your” children from acting like fools if you don’t teach them the difference between right/wrong or real/fantasy.

Anyways, the MPAA notes cite the film for  “intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality, and language” as their reasons for the PG-13. The violence and action in the film are in line for what has been viewed in previous installments. The “sensuality” portion on the other hand can be attributed to Catwoman ’cause she is one sexually charged chick. (giggity) If you don’t believe me just watch Batman Returns.

That is all our Batman news for now, so make sure to mark on your calendar that The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20.

The Joker….The Kinda Guy WITH A Plan


The Dark Knight is absolutely one of the greatest performance films ever. Heath Ledger’s Joker, everyone agrees is historic, and the growl of Christian Bale is…Questionable. So some fans put together an amazing plot driven rap/song. But not just a song. A brill piece of work questioning all the…not plot holes, but confusing content.

“Do I look like the kinda guy with a plan?…..” The joker asks. Well after trying to get what he wants.. “I just want my phone call.” He detonates a bomb via cell phone, embedded in a cellmates belly…Sounds like the kinda guy with an ELABORATE plan!!!

This song brings out several great points. If you are the ONLY person left in the world who hasn’t seen this film, This vid contains spoilers. Thanks to one of best friends Pete at

Funny New Batman Vanishing Clip


Funny Video Trifecta achieved! Sorry we normally don’t post this many videos in a row but good golly it’s just one of those days.

This spoof, from our friends at College Humor turns Batman’s disappearing act into one big farce. Sure, the mystique of Batman vanishing at the blink of an eye is impressive and a tad unsettling but what about those rare occasions when he doesn’t quite pull it off? On a side note, I’ve always been curious on the mechanics behind Batman’s Houdini act. How does that work exactly? Is it really just a matter of dashing behind an object when someone’s not looking? Please someone do some research on ninjas and get back to me.
