Nice Art: Batman doll does some very strange things

French artist Rémi Nöel took a Baman doll and posed it in a series of very lovely and yet hilarious photographs called Curious Wanderings of Batman in the American Southwest. You can see more of them in the link, as Nöel's website appears to be offline at the present moment.

Just as Disney/Marvel was launching its first foray into primetime TV with the debut of AGENTS OF SHIELD, Warner Bros—already a seasoned vet in this field with Smallville and Arrow—one upped them a bit by announcing the oft rumoredGOTHAM, a show focusing on James Gordon, pre Batman.

Comic Book Movie Summer ends with The Dark Knight Rises

So, I finally saw THE DARK KNIGHT RISES...yes, yes I know. In my defense, I tried seeing it twice and it was sold out and then I had a hard time finding three spare hours. And also...well, I'm not the biggest fan of the Nolan Batman trilogy. I get why it is so beloved and all, but the filmmaking is often sloppy to my tastes. (The horrible sound editing in DKR being one example.) Anyway, I did enjoy it, even though it was so lax in its storytelling. And I kept getting distracted by things. Like Catwoman's high heels. As soon as she appeared, I wondered "How is she running in those high heels?" And as if to answer my question, some hapless gunsel asks the same question in the film and Catwoman shows that they are really fearsome weapons. Got it.

Batman: The nail art

As you may have heard, nail art is all the rage these days, and its getting more and more ornate. And some ladies are going for comics inspired pieces, such as this, by Brooklyn's Fleury Rose, who created this design for someone going to the Dark Knight Rises premiere in New York, who got to show them off to director Christopher Nolan, even. Who wouldn't want to sport these dark knails?

Batman alert: Nokia lets you explore Gotham City in 3D

In order to view this both impressive and oppressive 3D rendering of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Gotham City one must first allow Nokia—the formerly ascendant Finnish company that was once the world's largest cel phone manufacturer—to tattle to you friends on Facebook every time you look at it AND tell Nokia you like them. Luckily I do like Nokia -- or at least I did like my tiny blue Nokia from 2000 that was my very first cel phone.

New Bane-centric DARK KNIGHT RISES trailer from Nokia

For the full effect you'll want to go right to the site, but this trailer has a lot of dark Bane vs Batman footage and less Catwoman. Any chance this movie will top AVENGERS? Probably not. But it should easily vanquish Spider-Man for #2 comic book movie of the year.
