On Super Bowl Sunday a 34-minute power failure cast a pallor of darkness over the big game, and though many valid conspiracy theories exist (voodoo priests avenging Katrina, concerted effort to bombard viewers with ads, etc) only one man could be the cause of it all: BANE!
In desperate search for his Adult Asthma Inhaler lost somewhere among the bleachers, the masked "Dark Knight Rises" bad guy announced his act of sports terrorism via, well, a few too many outlets, and Buzzfeed has the proof. Get More »
Remember back in high school, when you had yet to become a fully formed person but totally thought you were? It was your life, you could live it however you want, and shut up, mom!
Believe it or not, everyone went through the same "Indiana Jones and the Search for Personal Identity" adventure, even supervillains, which is why Buzzfeed has teamed up with wicked awesome artist GhostHause to recreate a facsimile of what Supervillains' High School Yearbook photos would look like.

Though Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy may be over, if you thought you'd seen it all you're gravely mistaken.
Apparently there are still tasty morsels of Bat mythology to be gleaned on some future DVD release, as GQ learned when they interviewed franchise costume designer Lindy Hemming, who had not seen the film yet and didn't realize she revealed a key scene deleted from the final print of "The Dark Knight Rises."

In short, his voice makes him seem more like a cuddly old man. The question is: Which one? Get More »
Christopher Nolan is old school. He doesn't save his surprising reveals for the credits, he keeps 'em in the damn movie.
I still remember the yawps of nerdish glee upon seeing the Joker card at the end of "Batman Begins," and "The Dark Knight Rises" has its share of ZOMGs during its final act as well.
I'm not about to take that experience away from you with the new one, but some of the impact may be lessened if you only have a hazy memory of Nolan's first film and the mysterious "League of Shadows." Allow me to hum a few bars to remind you. Get More »
The something-or-other of Batman's existence.
When the character first stepped onto the DC Comics scene in 1993 to much fanfare, he was one bad mamma jamma, very much the equal (or evil mirror) of the caped crusader. The dude snapped Bruce Wayne like a twig and put him in a wheelchair, for crying out loud. Get More »
