Third parts are notoriously difficult in films. If things haven’t been planned out from the start they feel like horrible cash-ins, where that once fresh and original idea has long since milked dry. At best you ignore them, deny they ever existed. At worst, they kill off all the enjoyment you had in the series. The Dark Knight Rises is Christopher Nolan’s final part in his Dark Knight trilogy. Will Nolan give us the ending we want? Will Batman get the send off he deserves? Read on and find out. Read more »

The Dark Knight Rises hype machine is now at full steam ahead (not that needs it). Magazines and websites are printing their exclusive interviews and visits to the set, and new pics to promote the film are being released every day, like the Batman one above… Read more »
The new (and final?) The Dark Knight Rises poster has been released to a reaction of overwhelming sighs from geeks throughout he world. It seems that WB’s marketing department had a half day and let the work experience kid knock out a quick Photoshop of Bats standing around looking moody. Read more »
A few days ago we posted the news that Batman and Catwoman from The Dark Knight Rises grace the cover of the latest Entertainment Weekly. Well, now the magazine is in the hands of the public, we’ve managed to get ahold of some scans of the pics within. Let’s have a look, shall we? Read more »
Ah, Valentine’s Day. The one day a year in which we get to celebrate love in all its forms, huff and puff loudly at the crass commercialisation of a martyred saint, or, you know, do the sex. Whatever your view, we can all agree it’s a great excuse to roll out silly feature, so The Shootening is taking a look at the greatest love of all - The bromance. We’ve all heard the saying – Bros before females (no sexist/misogynist language here, please), but what of those poor unfortunate types who know not what this love is? Well, don’t worry we have the top five examples neatly listed for you below.

Enjoy it? Yeah, you did! Go on, watch it again. I’ll be here, waiting. Read more »
SPOILER WARNING. From here in out I’m going to be giving away story and plot points. If you intend on playing the game and want to remain spoiler-free, stop flipping reading, you idiots. For everyone else, welcome.
A little re-cap before we begin – Batman: Arkham City is the sequel to Rocksteady’s 2009 hit Batman: Arkham Asylum, in which you are tasked with stopping the nefarious Joker as he breaks free and takes over the institute for the criminally insane. Locked inside the asylum with The Joker and many other members of Batman’s colourful cast, you are the only thing that stands in their way of the total destruction of Gotham City.
Arkham Asylum is a brilliant game. Crafted with such care and attention to detail, it finally gave Batman, and superheroes, a videogame they could be proud of. It would of been my Game Of The Year, if not for a stellar Uncharted 2: Amongst Thieves. To say I was excited about Asylum’s follow-up, Arkham City, would be an understatement. Let’s get to it, shall we?
It’s all been leading up to this point. In one week we finally get our grubby mitts upon’t Batman: Arkham City. Rocksteady have released the final trailer before the game is released and, by golly, it is SPECTACULAR.
The Joker was left looking a little worse for wear at the end of Batman: Arkham Asylum. With Arkham City seemingly focussing on the likes of Hugo Strange, many of us thought that the clown prince of crime may have had his day. Well, this exclusive trailer from MTV says he hasn’t. Not by a long shot…
