Podcast: Previewing 'The Dark Knight Rises'
Could Batman actually – gasp! – die? That’s one of the many topics discussed by Entertainment Editor Mark Meszoros, Sports Editor Mark Podolski and Comics: Don’t Get Me Started blogger Chris Lambert in this “The Dark Knight Rises”-focused edition of the Tuned in to Pop Culture podcast.
The fanboys get you ready for Thursday’s midnight release of the highly anticipated conclusion of director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy with talk about what Nolan’s accomplished with the series, whether this last movie can actually top “The Dark Knight” from a creative standpoint and just how it might all end.
A 'Dark Knight' night
News-Herald Entertainment Editor Mark Meszoros and Sports Editor Mark Podolski are celebrating the end of director Christopher Nolan’s trilogy of Batman films with a bang by attending a marathon of all three films -- “Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises” July 19 at Atlas Cinemas Great Lakes Stadium 16 in Mentor.
The night begins at 6:30 with “Begins” and ends with the midnight debut of “Rises.” Meszoros and Podolski will chronicle the experience right here on The News-Herald’s Tuned in to Pop Culture blog, as well as in the paper’s July 22 print edition. They will be tweeting using the hashtag #BatmanMarathon.
