The Dark Knight Quits

I'm not a big fan of Christopher Nolan's Batman films, or should I say film since the 2nd one felt more like a Gotham PD movie, and I can honestly say I'm not looking forward to his next outing.
Before you tune me out give me a minute to explain.

I am a Batman fan and I have been since I was 5 (I'm 36 now). One of the big reason's I love Batman is he seldom gets discouraged or gives up, when he is faced with a monster of a problem, he just redoubles his efforts. I can remember twice that Batman retired: once because he got old...but he came back (The Dark Knight Returns), and once because his back was broken (Knightfall).

So far in the Christopher Nolan movies Batman has been discouraged or quit in all but the first one. Which makes me wonder how his Bruce Wayne became Batman at all. Didn't he dedicate a good part of his 20's to becoming an idea? I'm pretty sure the training leading up to it was more difficult than the actual job of being Batman. So why does Christopher Nolan seems to treat the Batman persona as a flippant whim, a la Tony Stark and Iron Man.

Don't believe me? Check out the new TV spot below.

I'm going to miss Jackie Chan.

It's probably old news to others...but Jackie Chan has decided to retire to focus on his charity work. I'm so going to miss his fighting genius.

The Doctor is in.

I can't wait to get my hands on this 1/6th scale 11th Doctor figure from Big Chief Studios. It runs about the same price has a Hot Toys figure so expect to drop a pretty penny. 
You can pre order and check out more photos here
You can also go to your nearest comic store and order from them also, it is available through Diamond Dist.

BTW...there is an Amy Pond as well, and they are planning a 10th Doctor next.

Gina Carano is amazing!

 She's #1 on my list...of women I would like to fight. I know I would get my ass kicked, but she would totally feel bad afterwards and give me pity love.

Just a few of my favorite Avengers memes.

Yeah...I'm kind of obsessed with the Avengers again. It's like I'm 10 all over again. 

Check out a "Greaser" Batman from the 50's

I would totally read this comic! Check out more art here.
