Danica Patrick should get Catwoman on her car, lol.
Minotauro - 5/13/2012, 12:14 PM
I like the bane design.
Fantine - 5/13/2012, 12:20 PM
No Catwoman?

She doesnt seem to feature on much things, but seems to be a strong character in the film?

Im getting a feeling shes going to die....
golden123 - 5/13/2012, 12:27 PM
@Catwoman1: People said the same thing about Hawkeye and Black Widow and their hearts are still beating. I wouldn't worry. Just because a character that is important in the comics isn't featured prominently in the advertising doesn't mean they will end up dead.

Tdkr teams up with Nascar.....Lmao.

Git R Done, I guess.
THEDARKNIGHT100 - 5/13/2012, 12:37 PM
expect a big fight with them two cars
marvel72 - 5/13/2012, 12:45 PM
maybe the nascar will crash & burn just like the dark knight rises.

you never know.

Jimmy crack corn...
SuperDan89 - 5/13/2012, 12:48 PM
Bloody hell, WTF is this!? An article not about The Avengers or Spiderman?! It's like the Twilight Zone or some shiznazz!

Emma Thomas: The Avengers grossed over 1 billion dollars today.
Chris Nolan: You sound like you're happy about it.
Emma Thomas: I'm adaptable.

David S. Goyer: What are you?
Joss Whedon: I'm Hollywood's reckoning.

Jonathan Nolan: Did they kill him?
Emma Thomas: I'm not sure.

Nolan: Why don't you just kill me?
Whedon: Your embarrassment must be more severe.


Kid: Do you think he's coming back?
Jonathan Nolan: I'm not sure.

Jonathan Nolan: Why would you change careers? Whedon?
Emma Thomas: You should be as afraid of him as I am.


Warner Bros: I won't fire you, I've fired enough Batman directors already.


Emma Thomas: You don't owe your fans anymore, you've given them everything.
Nolan: Not everything, not yet.

I feel like the promo money could be better spent on something OTHER than [frick]ing NASCAR
CaptainObvious - 5/13/2012, 12:52 PM
@soberchimera61- That actually made me laugh.
bobevanz - 5/13/2012, 12:59 PM
Turn right for once!
Ha1frican - 5/13/2012, 1:02 PM
@Intruder overrated? Maybe. At least in the eyes of the general public after TDK i totally agree. But he is a damn good director. Memento, Prestige, BB, TDK, Inception... Cmon the guy has more hits than people that have been in the biz twice as long and that is impressive.
TheDetectiveComicRises - 5/13/2012, 1:18 PM
@Ha1frican well said
Lego - 5/13/2012, 1:27 PM

can't wait movie of the year!
MaskofTengu - 5/13/2012, 1:32 PM
Although I loathe NASCAR, I'm going with the Bane design. I know that DC and WB have partnered with NASCAR numerous times before it still doesn't change my opinion about it.
Squaremaster316 - 5/13/2012, 1:41 PM
His resume's a hell of a lot more impressive than Whedon's, that's for sure.
TheDetectiveComicRises - 5/13/2012, 1:42 PM
@Ironman53 check out:

nuff said I don't agree with rest of list in some areas but I do agree with top 2 ;)
Asterisk - 5/13/2012, 1:42 PM
I've never been a fan of racing...but the 3rd one looks alright
CPBuff22 - 5/13/2012, 1:51 PM
What no option to vote for one with Hulk on it?
DeadHubris - 5/13/2012, 1:53 PM
revloveR - 5/13/2012, 2:03 PM
bane looks like darth vader in that.
AlibiBreakfast - 5/13/2012, 2:05 PM
NASCAR is for inbred hillbillies.
JordanKing - 5/13/2012, 2:31 PM
As Batman would say: "Now that is a caaaaaaarrrrrr".
Ha1frican - 5/13/2012, 2:53 PM
Prestige is up there guys but Memento takes the cake IMO but let me be clear that Prestige is one of my fave's and my 3rd choice for Nolan's best. My list is

Batman Begins

Ha1frican - 5/13/2012, 2:56 PM
and the space between Prestige/Inception and BB is as close as it possibly could be lol
mrteaspoon - 5/13/2012, 3:10 PM
I like the car without the marketing feces smeared all over it.
TheDetectiveComicRises - 5/13/2012, 3:58 PM
Ironman53 it says top two greatest CBM of all time: 1) The Dark Knight 2) The Avengers
mbomb22 - 5/13/2012, 4:07 PM
does it have to be on Jr.s car? why not put it on a car that will actually win a race?
Supes17 - 5/13/2012, 4:14 PM
Bane likes the Bane design so much he's dancing about it

SigmaCenturion - 5/13/2012, 4:23 PM
When the flag drops you have my permission to turn left.
SigmaCenturion - 5/13/2012, 4:41 PM
@Supes17 I can actually see that happening the dark knight rises.
Dmon - 5/13/2012, 4:43 PM
It's funny. In the Avengers, the world is threatened but it only feels like the city is at stake. In the Dark Knight Rises trailer, the city is threatened but it feels like the world is at stake.
SigmaCenturion - 5/13/2012, 4:46 PM
@Dmon Yeah that is true and also funny.
TheDetectiveComicRises - 5/13/2012, 4:57 PM
@Dmon that is true I felt the same way
KalEl1996 - 5/13/2012, 6:04 PM
@soberchimera61: LMAO! Nice. :)
Banner - 5/13/2012, 6:13 PM
Marvels the Avengers needs 6 heroes to reach 1 billion, but DC needs only 1 hero to reach 1 billion... WTF?!

and yeah... The Prestige is one hell of a superhero movie with Batman and the Wolverine in one film! :P
Banner - 5/13/2012, 6:14 PM
Supes17 - 5/13/2012, 7:12 PM
come on now, The Avengers won it's money fair and square.

There's nothing wrong with competition, it makes CBM's better;)

Now, I'm betting money that TDKR will also beat TDK's box office revenue in less than a month
