Happy Birthday to the man behind The Dark Knight Trilogy - Christopher Nolan!


It's July 30 and a Throwback Thursday... And also the birthday of the man behind what would become one of the most definitive interpretations of Batman in film for all time.


Today, British-American director and visionary Christopher Nolan turns 45, and ten years ago he started a journey for one Bruce Wayne (as portrayed by Christian Bale) that would be chronicled in 3 films that make up "The Dark Knight Trilogy" and focus on a man becoming a legend and symbol for good and justice.


Today, those films still stand the test of time, and serve as the inspiration behind what is now being being forged as the DC Cinematic Universe. It's not a part of that world... But Nolan himself served as executive producer for the first foray in that universe with Zack Snyder's Man of Steel in 2013. The director's exploits and work also extend to action and sci-fi gems like Memento and Inception, but it goes without saying that his mark in the superhero film industry certainly left it's mark for all time.


Again, Happy Birthday Christopher Nolan!

ICYMI: Mark Hamill WILL voice The Joker in "Batman: The Killing Joke" animated film


Finally confirming the longstanding rumors and petitions to get the perfect man to play the role of the Clown Prince of Crime once more, Collider has broken out the news that veteran actor Mark Hamill will be returning to voice The Joker for the much anticipated animated film adaptation of "Batman: The Killing Joke" - which is widely considered to be the one if not THE greatest Joker story ever told.

Voicing his enthusiasm to "unretire" the role of Mistah J if a Killing Joke movie were to happen, Hamill last voiced Batman's greatest nemesis in the Batman Arkham games, and recently featured again in Batman: Arkham Knight, where he was a hallucination brought to life in The Dark Knight's mind that constantly hounded him like so (SPOILER WARNING):

Batman: Arkham Knight - Joker 'Who's Laughing Now?'

Now all we need is an exact release date and Kevin Conroy to return as Batman too.
