Check out the first (low quality) look at some figures baring the likeness of Michael Caine's Alfred, and Joseph Gordon Levitt's mysterious John Blake from The Dark Knight Rises. We also have a look at the toy packaging..

Not the most exciting of action figures, but it's nice to know people will have the chance to play with the supporting characters as well! Perhaps more interestingly, we also have confirmation that Movie Masters will be producing a "secret figure" based on the movie. Any ideas who that might be?





Christopher Nolan returns to complete the Gotham trilogy that launched with Batman Begins and reached the stratosphere with the billion dollar blockbuster The Dark Knight. Inception's Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt join the cast regulars along with Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman) and Tom Hardy as the powerful villain Bane. Christian Bale prowls the night as the Caped Crusader, fighting crime and corruption with the help of Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman


The Dark Knight Rises will be with us July 20th

It's Ras. The TDKR Facebook Group got a scoop about Ras being a secret toy amongst the ones just announced in this article back in December, and they were right. Not known if it's Young or Old Ras yet
PaulRom - 3/8/2012, 11:36 AM
It's probably Superman.
GingerBird - 3/8/2012, 11:47 AM
The John Blake toy looks like Joseph Gordon-Levitt mated with Ceasar from Planet of The Apes.
antonio - 3/8/2012, 11:49 AM
Its probably The Skrulls.
Darthkostis - 3/8/2012, 11:49 AM

It's the next generation Batman, John Blake.

Does Alfred have Kung Fu grip?
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 3/8/2012, 11:57 AM

AsianVersionOfET - 3/8/2012, 12:08 PM
I'm gonna buy both of em and make them do bad things to each other!
SuperAnt - 3/8/2012, 12:27 PM
"secret figure" pffft!!!

JGL is going to play Azrael, or a Nolan version. Just like the events of knightfall (Catwoman also stars in this)

Bane is going to break batman's back, and JGL the 'only other honest cop' is going to take up the mantle of batman, but then go nuts and kill people, so bruce is going to have to find the lazarus pit to heal himself (bring in talia and ras al ghul) and he's going to kick JGLs ass.

If we remember, no one knew until right at the last minute that two face was going to be in TDR.

Nolan loves his 4th quarter villains. All the footage we've seen? all the leaks? All misdirection to keep us from guessing what will be an epic end to a batman movie - Batman vs. Batman



ironknight - 3/8/2012, 12:28 PM
Its probably either Ra's or Talia.
Mrcool210 - 3/8/2012, 12:29 PM
GET YOUR ALRED ACTION FIGURE NOW, WITH AWESOME EXPOSISTION ACTION,
OdinsBeard - 3/8/2012, 12:32 PM

andrewbrooks - 3/8/2012, 12:32 PM

Chillrazor - 3/8/2012, 12:43 PM
Does Alfred come with a duster?
TheDpool - 3/8/2012, 12:55 PM
John Blake will end up being Azerell
NOLANITE - 3/8/2012, 1:04 PM
John Blake is.... (insert name here).

Miranda Tate is...(insert name here).

Who wouldnt want an Alfred doll? Its Michael Caine for god sakes!! The dude is just Boss!

And no this isnt where The Avengers Owns TDKR.
This is where TDKR owns....well ill hold off on that and let "The Halloween Costumed Freaks" have their month to shine.
tdkrextra - 3/8/2012, 1:07 PM
Cool! I hope they make a bad a$$ mercenary. ::cough, cough::
batfan175 - 3/8/2012, 1:18 PM
Alfred rocks but i'm too old to play with action figures. Kids might enjoy it, though.
Ryguy88 - 3/8/2012, 1:39 PM
I'd laugh if John Blake turns out to be just a regular cop.
SmellofDuty - 3/8/2012, 2:07 PM
@Ryguy88 Maybe so. I'll be fine either way, Nolan will surprise us with something.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 3/8/2012, 2:11 PM
NOLANITE Do you like Batman, or just Nolan's "law & Order" take on him? Cause if you are a "fan" of the comics, you'd be the last to say that the Avengers are the "Costumed Freaks," seeing as how Batman is the *freak (* i.e., The Killing Joke, etc.) Your just asinine level ironically retarded, it's [frick]ed up dumbasses like you that give Nolan the laughable title as, "Visionary Director," You reject a Faithful adaptation like The Avengers, quoting it is shit, when in fact, it is exactly like it's comic book counter-part, while Nolan brainwashes you into thinking Batman: Criminal Intent is like the comic. Pffft!

This.



Is the equivalent to this?

Bane (DC Comics) Pictures, Images and Photos

While the "costume freaks" are stupid, when they are compared to their comic counter-part, God you are [frick]ing vapid.
avprom[1]
Avengers 1

I fail to realize what makes Nolan's Batman films past Begins so Uncanning amazing. [frick]ing stupid follower.

@ All the Nolan worshiper's!



batfan175 Never to old! Playing with my bad-ass Marvel Legends help me write some cool fan fic and sketch some wicked poses. Sure the GF may think to herself, "I let this retarded geek put his tongue in my mouth, worse, i return the favor?" But hey, she's still here, lol.
Lawliet - 3/8/2012, 3:24 PM
well said gambitfreak, but come on?
we should all be proud this year is full of comic book movies!
DCnerd46 - 3/8/2012, 3:26 PM
John Blake is a totally unnecessary character, Harvey Bullock would have been much more interesting. Nolan creates half these characters just to collaborate w/ the same actors over & over again.
DCnerd46 - 3/8/2012, 3:28 PM
@TheGambitFreak 100% agree, well said
brewtownpsych - 3/8/2012, 4:42 PM
lol ... how dumb are these. at least give alfred a weapon, maybe that golf club he used to whack that thug over the head in BB.
JatevinM - 3/8/2012, 6:39 PM
I wan't an Alfred action figure so put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Also anyone who thinks Nolan isn't a visionary and amazing director is plain and simple retarded. You can put the entire Nolan Batman series aside and still see the man is visionary and talented. Nolan is giving a differen't adaptation of Batman and if you don't like it then don't watch his movies but don't come in shit talking his series and trying to ruin it for those of us who do like it.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 3/8/2012, 7:42 PM
Jatevin First off, If you like Nolan's take on Batman, as in, you think it is the best interpretation of him on screen, you sir, are no comic fan. Secondly, I never said he wasn't a, "visionary director" I'm sure he is, he just has no vision in what to do with Batman at all! Thirdly, you said different adaptation. Adaptation of what? Beyond names of characters that happen to be the names of people in the DC comics stories, where the [frick] is this, "adaptation" adapting from? And last, but no where in hell near least, this is CBM.com, home of arguments. If you don't know this, you need to go into a comic book shop and watch a customer chat with the employee, eventually, one way or another, the conversation will lead to which person is the true Green Lantern (Hal or Kyle.)These fights are no different. And FYI, if you lovew this series, as in, these are your "stranded Island list" of movies, that is pathetic. Let me ask you, what is it about these films that make them so God Damn likable? Hmmm? The bobble-head "cowl," The unexplained reason of how he doesn't kill people yet, he flys on rooftops, makes a train crash down into a parking lot, runs over a citizen filled cop car in a tank, and shoots two missles into a mall? The asinine reason whyof how he is a Billionaire with the most up-to-date tech, yet can't get ahold of a voice changer, instead resides on coughing up his lungs as if he had cancer and hat been hit with Mustard Gas? Or is it because you just love the great, bone-chilling suspense of how one psycho who creates chaos with just merely gun-powder and gasoline can defeat a mother-[frick]ing billionaire with a tank, bladed weapons, guantlets, and as said above, the most advanced tech, such as sonar, that could easily locate and capture this Asylum-Bound criminal, Joker in the comics had resources, he had a reason to be crazy, he had over-the-top weapons, that is what made him menacing, not a Mob-stealing nutcase. Sure Heath was good, but he was no Jack. Plus, you think some dude in a Mortal Kombat mask with an earthquake machine can stop a dude such as "Batman," And you Petty Nolanite's think Avenger's has no storyline, A confused Alien with too much power comes to Earth looking to rule Mortals, and so a secret government entity enlists the World's Mightiest of Heroes to defeat the common threat, and must make an Inevitable Alliance with their greatest foe to stop an even bigger force, SMH!

Marshall Erickson, will you so kindly do the honor...



MAY 4TH!
CPBuff22 - 3/8/2012, 8:10 PM
Are these 3.75 inch? Because if they are then Alfred can sit next to my Marvel Universe Mary Jane and watch Spider-Man & Batman battle it out in the box office.
dahamma - 3/8/2012, 8:11 PM
@GambitTheFreak

Dannnggg mannn just danggg agreed 100% lol

...ALFRED TOY FOR THE WIN!!
AsonUnique - 3/8/2012, 8:26 PM
Secret Figure WILL BE A SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION CHRISTOPHER NOLAN ACTION FIGURE! hahahahahahahaha
JatevinM - 3/8/2012, 8:46 PM
@GambitTheFreak you are the typical Marvel fanboy who doesn't know how to do anything other than insult anything Nolan related. If you were worth a real response I would give you one so this is all you get.
