You plan every last detail of your wedding to make sure everything is perfect, but you don’t plan to have The Dark Knight Rises filming at your chapel during the ceremony. That’s what happened to this couple back in 2011 when the film was shooting in Pittsburgh. A redditor who was at the wedding said:

I was actually there watching the filming when this happened. There was no way the bride and groom could have known they were going to be filming a movie when they booked the chapel, so it basically caused a lot of inconvenience for them and their guests as there were explosions and gunfire on the street during their wedding. The producers were cool about it through; and parked one of the batmobiles [the Tumbler] in front of the chapel so the bride and groom could take a bunch of pictures in it.

Most people learned of the story this week through Reddit, but it was big news in Pittsburg when it happened because the groom was local sports reporter Rich Walsh of WPXI. He even did a radio interview to share all the details of how it went down. This has got to be one of the greatest unplanned wedding moments ever.

The latest offering from Hot Toys features not just an incredible armory packed with Batman’s gadgets, but a Bruce Wayne and Alfred action figure. The armory itself is unbelievable with all of the assorted weapons stored in movable drawers and along the walls that surround Batman’s costume.

The 1/6th scale Batman Armory is highly detailed and meticulously crafted based on its appearance in The Dark Knight featuring a Batman collectible figure with patented Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS) and four newly sculpted interchangeable expressions, and a large collection of finely sculpted weapons and accessories.

In addition to the armory, you’ll get a Bruce Wayne figure based on Christian Bale and an Alfred figure based on Sir Michael Caine. Both feature screen accurate costumes and facial sculpts that look just like the actors.

Hot Toys has yet to release pricing and availability.

This animated short captures Batman’s interrogation of the Joker in Lego form. It’s not quite the dark and gritty of the movie and Superman was way better in the film. Wait, what the heck is Superman doing here? What am I watching? I don’t even know anymore but it was awesome!

Some Downton Abbey fans might get their pantaloons in a bunch over the cast as villains from Batman’s Rogue Gallery but, if I may be so bold, it kinda kicks ass. The art’s courtesy of Shadow Santa (a rather appropriate name), and I have to say that it’s a total knock out of the park.

In the latest Animation Domination cartoon, Batman takes a driving test… and it doesn’t turn out too well, mainly because he likes screaming “I’m Batman” instead of using his turn signal.

Here’s a look at what could be the Dark Knight Trilogy Blu-ray Ultimate Collector’s Edition Box Set. Phew, that’s a mouthful, but it looks like it’s worthy of the title. Slated to go on sale sometime in the third quarter of this year, this incredible collector’s set looks to include a slipcase, three mini-vehicles, nine discs, several books and possibly some prints. No official word yet that this is the real deal, but it sure does look promising.

I have never mastered the game of chess, but if I had this board I’d be willing to give it another try. Instead of boring white and black pieces, this one has 2 1/2″ to 5 1/2″ tall pewter pieces that look like the villains and heros of Gotham City. Batman, Robin, Batgirl and Commissioner Gordon battle The Joker, Catwoman, Riddler and Penguin on an oversized 20″ board. At the press of a Bat Signal button, 50 LED lights brighten the board and the Gotham cityscape beneath as well as projecting a Bat Signal into the sky. Preorder know and play chess with Batman when this ships on January 15th.

It’s not what you think.

Some say there were a few plot holes in The Dark Knight Rises. Naturally, the guys from How It Should Have Ended swooped in and came up with some alternate endings that make far more sense than the things that happened on the movie screen.

I don’t know how I feel about The Dark Knight watching me while I do my business. He looks very intimidating and also like he’s going to throw that roll of toilet paper at my head. Nope. This is not the bathroom decor for me, but apparently there are several people who like the idea since there’s more than one of these out there.
