Yup, you read that right: It’s an hour and 15 minutes of nothing but The Dark Knight Rises discussion with your hosts Aaron & Alan, along with our pals Trevon McGee and Ian McFarland. Worry not, folks! It’s a wholly spoiler free discussion of Christopher Nolan’s last chapter in his Batman trilogy and as you might expect: There’s a whole mess of differing opinions, crude remarks at each others’ expense, and of course the lesson of love.

Listen now or iTunes the hell out of it later!

The Tumbler Tour rolled through Kansas City the last few days bringing with it Christopher Nolan‘s version of the Batmobile and the Bat-Pod (from Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and this summer’s The Dark Knight Rises). Pretty cool!

And we get our first look at Anne Hathaway as Christopher Nolan’s Catwoman:

All kidding aside – Are we a little disappointed that Nolan didn’t choose to go with Darwyn Cooke’s very-very doable Catwoman costume? Yeah, we are. Are we a little sad that Hathaway is sporting long hair? Yeah, I guess we are.

However I’m forced to remind myself that my first reaction to a Thor or Captain America still was “oh, crap”, and those costumes ended up looking fantastic on the screen. So here’s hoping Selina Kyle in motion looks better than a still. Also: We hope Bruce isn’t too mad she totally boosted a Bat-Pod.

Yup, our much beloved Secret Six came to its too-soon conclusion on Wednesday, and of course we had to commiserate. Well, that and talking about the week in comics, Superman and Dark Knight Rises stills, the great racist crisis of the new Ultimate Spider-Man, and scorched earth Twitter warfare. Join Aaron, Alan, and Bobby for a very special (ie long*) version of the Four Color Freak-Out!

*It was actually 3 and a half hours uncut, but we decided 90 minutes of Alan sobbing was a bit much to bear.
