Toy Companies Can Be The Boon in Studio’s Sides: THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

'The Dark Knight Rises' As a movie such as Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises, starring Christian Bale, goes into production, fans start to get excited and want every little bit of information that they can get their hands on. No matter what it is. Then there’s the less than stellar studio hired teams, that inevitably let some cat out of the bag, regardless. It’s the boon of the early, exclusive reports from various websites.

It’s the way things are. At least for the time being.

Be that as it may, there have been various conjectures in the early production days of The Dark Knight Rises as to what characters and such will be in the story. Then details started to come out and we learned slowly but surely, who or what will be in TDKR.

Catwoman (Anne Hathaway), John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Ra’s Al Ghul (Liam Neeson) and Bane (Tom Hardy). Though we’re still awaiting to discover who Stargate’s Christopher Judge is playing!

But before the character details came out, the conjecture flew. Unlike other movies like Transformers or The Avengers (which is now the 6th all-time money maker), those pesky early toy releases can let things slip or at least confuse the info-eager movie fan who needs to know everything about a movie before seeing it.

In this case, this newest toy announcement isn’t really a surprise… but they’re working on trying to keep it a surprise, when the name of the character toy is:

Batman Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters Deluxe Action Figure SECRET FIGURE Pre-Order ships June

OK. The curiosities are whetted, right? Sure. Except, I think the toy company still needs to work on how they hide the identity of their secret toys. Check out the URL for this mystery item:


Hmm, so much for that surprise! (They’ve subsequently retitled the page, but when I saw this over the weekend, I thought it was an interesting tidbit.)

The Dark Knight Rises will land in theaters on July 20th, 2012.
