THE COLLISION: Episode 14 – The Future of Superhero Movies and THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

     August 7, 2012


After a three-week break stemming from scheduling conflicts and technical difficulties, The Collision has returned.  We would have liked to have discussed The Dark Knight Rises closer to its release date, but we feel like we have to discuss even thought we’re a little late to the game.  In this episode, we’ll not only talk about the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, but also examine how Nolan has changed superhero movies and where the genre could be headed.  While at the beginning of the show I say that the episode will be divided into non-spoiler and spoiler sections, we quickly went into discussing details, so if you haven’t seen The Dark Knight Rises yet, you’re going to want to pass on this episode until you do (assuming you mind spoilers).  As always, we’ll finish up with our recommendations.
