Tom Hardy and his costars Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Will Estes, Morgan Freeman, Josh Stewart, Scare Crow himself Cillian Murphy and our beloved Joseph Gordon-Levitt were joined by Daughtry, Ron Howard, Dennis Haysbert and Penn Badgley at the world premiere of The Dark Knight Rises on Manhattan’s UWS, yesterday. And the crowd spanned a city block for a glimpse of all that testosterone.
And who can blame them? We ain’t going to complain about the men out-numbering the women at the Batman preview any. To us, that fact is some serious icing on a flavorful cake. A plus with party written all over it. We ain’t greedy or nothing, it merely serves for diversity and keeping busy is all.
We can’t imagine this truly being the end of the re-boot. It just can’t be. We imagine this will break box office records and Bale will be threatened with single-handedly being responsible for the break down of Hollywood itself if he doesn’t return and fulfill his duties.
Alright, that’s a bit much but he has taken the Batman role to new dark heights and for that we can all be eternally grateful.
We still remain with some reservations about the chosen party to take on Cat Woman but as the title suggest, this is about the MEN! Get set for a kick-ass weekend.
