I don't get all this posters.. sounds like they're begging for it. If they're so certain of the success of the movie they shouldn't push it this much..
Any "For your consideration" posters from the other possible nominees?

Film. Nolan got it and delivered. Perfect Batman? F&ck no, but seriously?! He dropped a Tom Hanks calibre tale with great stunt execution. I still don't understand that hate perspective. I've never wanted a video game or novel to be direct transcription; you all sound kind of ridiculous! It's a video game, it should'nt come close, so let's praise the ones that do.., that are reputable, of course.

Pretentious, pretentious, pretentious: nerves o' steel.

If Jackson got it for Return and not Fellowship, [frick] yeah Nolan deserves recognitions. Fellowship was the only good film in that trilogy.

I wish more news would happen for my consideration....slow news weekend, we get it, you still are asking for an Oscar. I want a Tahitian hand-job right now but ya don't see me at my neighbors door with a handful of handwritten testimony on my rope slinging prowess or accuracy
kevshardlemonade - 12/9/2012, 5:17 PM
Here come the 2 or 3 haters with mutiple phony accounts pretending to be more people. Im sorry, the Shumacher era is over, haters. Get over it. Us real fans always wanted good, dark, serious Batman movies and we got em. Keep crying all you want but you haters are in the minority when it comes to people wanting campy goofy Batman movies.
DioFoRio - 12/9/2012, 5:19 PM
I'm bitching cuz it's the same news with a new coat of paint(I get it though...slow news day)

oh my...

This just reeks of desperation. Like they feel like they have to beg the academy to get a nomination.

SFX Supervisor Chris Coubould Will Win.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 12/9/2012, 5:23 PM
LMAO @Icon Could not have expressed it any better.
95 - 12/9/2012, 5:26 PM
Is it really unnatural for studios to campaign for the world's most "prestigious" film award? It's kinda what they do.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 12/9/2012, 5:28 PM
@Claire, thank you, Madame. That has been my sentiment since the beginning of this whole thing.
Jollem - 12/9/2012, 5:28 PM










this kind of thing has always happened. quit yer bitchin' :)
HavocPrime - 12/9/2012, 5:33 PM
for the TDKR, no, for the whole trilogy, and making CBMs more accepted by all, then yes he deserves a Best Director Nomination
Hexagram - 12/9/2012, 5:38 PM
Something to think about. Nolans films have basically given one option for Batman in the future: Batman "frackin'" perfect. It's only gonna' get better from cinematic perfection!? Alfred and Wayne never did their taxes in a Nolan film, but...
rockerdude22 - 12/9/2012, 5:42 PM
I liked TDKR, but I don't think it's Oscar-worthy. None of the CBMs from this year are.
FilmsFan - 12/9/2012, 5:43 PM
For Your Consideration stuff happens!

& studios have to promote their films otherwise every film isn't The Kings Speech; a tailor made, generic & Great OSCAR film!
So u have to promote ur film infront of that OLD & pretentious academy members; & still Social Network & Inception being clearly the Best & Most ambitious films in nearly every aspect got neglected!
Whatever ur personal hate is for Nolan or TDK trilogy; it frankly doesn't matter much cuz all 3 films have been overwhelmingly Loved by audiences & critics, one more than other!!

So stop coming & TDKR articles when u hate this film; Go & fvcking do something else!!
Let WB do what they are doing.... It's just a Nomination thing... We need a few more decades to get to the point when a great Superhero film will win an Oscar!!

For Your Consideration:

@AmericanPsycho Indeed! Bane's voice was one of my favorite parts of TDKR - Hardy should get nominated for his voicework alone.
INSTANTJUSTICE - 12/9/2012, 5:52 PM


Nolan grew a beard so you'd take him seriously.


Xandera - 12/9/2012, 5:53 PM
I am gonna throw something out there that I thought of the other day...
At the end of the movie, Bane is completely incapacitated when Batman breaks one of the tunes on his mask...
If he can't survive more than a few seconds without the mask, how the hell does he eat?
MAJOR PLOT HOLE!!!!!!!!
marvel72 - 12/9/2012, 6:04 PM
the dark knight rises won't win jack shit,the best chance its got is best soundtrack & that is all.
BSingerFoxMen - 12/9/2012, 6:08 PM
I recently watched this on DVD for my second viewing,and while I will say it as better upon another look,it was stil terribly disappointing, and in no way deserve any awards. Sorry, that's not hating, it's just truth. Either way,the Academy, AND it's award stopped meaning anything years ago! It is a total joke now.
FritoFrito - 12/9/2012, 6:10 PM
While I get that some people had some problems with the movie, I don't understand why so many of the members of this Comic Book Movie site are against this film getting the nominations...It's really beyond baffling to me, we're all here to support these movies, these are the movies that we want to see and finally, finally something comes close to achieving the highest reward in cinema and most of us bash it? I really do hope this film gets nominated, it does deserve it, the mere scale of the opening scene alone was beyond what most comic book movies and just action movies could hope to achieve. It deserves it and Nolan deserves it for all the respect he had for a genre that was mostly making movies as quick cash grabs b/c Raimi's spiderman was successful.

It'll be cool to see this movie win or at least get nominated. It can only mean better things for the future of comic book films. And us as fan should at least be happy that the Golden Age of Comic Book films is just beginning.

@FritoFrito - maybe some people are jealous or competitive or insecure. maybe they just need to fight about stuff. maybe some people honestly and genuinely do not like the movie and need to express their dislike hundreds of times. who knows? it's all fandom

also, i would say that we are in the "silver age" of cbms
INFO - 12/9/2012, 6:22 PM
WIN.

SMH.......that's all I'm gonna do about this.

Us real fans always wanted good, dark, serious Batman movies and we got em. Keep crying all you want but you haters are in the minority when it comes to people wanting campy goofy Batman movies.


See, this is the gripe I have with some of the people on this site. To them, you're a fan of the campy Adam West (1960s)/Schumacher (mid 1990s)-era Batman mediums if you don't like Nolan's Batman movies.

Were they a more serious take? Yes. We're they definitive Batman movies? IMO, no. Nolan pretty much took away 95% of the iconism from Batman's characterizations and turned him into an insecure, mindless bully who couldn't fight his way out of a paper bag, had absolutely no detective skills, was very intellectually incompetent, and had a knack for quitting to where it seems like an habitual reflex. And all this was for him to tell the story of Batman the way HE wanted.

I'm just ready for the reboot, and hopefully it'll feel like it came out of the pages of the Batman mythos, not from some pretentious director who thinks his vision is better than the source material.

Good luck WBs.
Darth258 - 12/9/2012, 6:25 PM
All this "Marvelites" thing is just dumb, if someone was really one of those creatures he'd be forced to like awful things like Elektra or Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance or Ang Lee's Hulk.
I'm a comic book fan, i love both Marel and DC, and a Batman fan, which is the main reason i didn't like this movie. Begins and TDK were far better than this last one, and if there was an oscar worhy movie was TDK, sure not TDKR.
Xandera - 12/9/2012, 6:28 PM
@sagemode - I second everything in your comment... Nicely done!
Darth258 - 12/9/2012, 6:29 PM
And what SageMode said. They stripped Batman of everything that made him so.
TheRock234 - 12/9/2012, 6:34 PM
y'all don't even no what pretentious means first of all
Hexagram - 12/9/2012, 6:37 PM
Good Batman was delivered. Stop filling. We will get Batman perfect in a few years. I know this sounds insane(Urban is too old), but Hammer is your Alex Ross version(dyed hair, have vision, watch Madmen and picture him opposite Cavill).
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 12/9/2012, 6:40 PM
Anne Hathaway is the best part of this movie still! The costume isn't accurate but her character portrayal is straight out of the comic pages! She and Oldman could definitely be brought back for the reboot if you ask me!
SageMode - 12/9/2012, 6:41 PM
THEROCK234

Do you?
PaulRom - 12/9/2012, 6:46 PM
People who think WB are desperate in Oscar campaigns are clearly not familiar with the concept. Many movies have a lot of "For Your Consideration" posters during Awards season, are they always begging for awards?

And SageMode, you SMH so frequently I'm surprised your head hasn't popped off. ;)
Hexagram - 12/9/2012, 6:51 PM
ZD30: I f*cked Cameron and have an attractive body. If you existed in the '80's and are stll around today, you should be awarded. She was on Strange Days and the J Renner vanity piece sucked balls! Fiennes, what the fu*k?
