    Everyone gets excited about this time of year, and it's no different here at Popfunk. Forget building snowmen. Leave the sled in the garage. Give us some sugar cookies, a blanket, and a stack of holiday comics and we'll be set straight through the New Year. Here are some of our faves from DC. DC Infinite Holiday Special DC Infinite Holiday Special In this holiday issue, Superman plans to impersonate Santa Claus to prove to a young boy that he is real... Until Batman convinces him there are more heroic acts to partake in. Though Superman agrees, he decides to deliver the presents to the boy anyway. And who should he see the young kids screaming for when he gets there? Batman as... Santa Claus. DC Universe Holiday Special 2008 DC Universe Holiday Special 2008 This one includes 10 stories with some of the DC's greatest superheroes. Holiday action from classic good guys like Superman, Supergirl, Batman & Robin, Green Lantern and more. The Night the Mob Stole X-Mas The Night the Mob Stole X-Mas Released in March 1979, this holiday comic features Batman and Plastic Man working together to defend Christmas against a crew of greedy mobsters. Christmas 'Round the World Christmas 'Round the World Superman spends this issue reuniting refugee children with their families and learns how other cultures celebrate Christmas in the process. Merry Christmas, Justice League of America... Now Die! Merry Christmas, Justice League of America...Now Die! Santa Claus joins the world's greatest superheroes in this holiday comic. Sounds innocent enough, right? But judging from the cover, it looks like the Justice League might regret its decision to let someone new into the group after all.... So those are a few of our favorite holiday comics. What about you? Which issues do you reach for to get your fill of crime-fighting, yule tide cheer?

    Christopher Nolan sure knows how to make you wait. We were almost tempted to take out our old Batman figures and create a very conservatively budgeted trailer when a summer storm knocked out our power this week. But we're grateful that we didn't have to do the extra work. Finally for your viewing pleasure: The Dark Knight Rises Official Trailer.

    Do you think this much anticipated film will overthrow Harry Potter's recent Spellbinding success at the Box Office??

  • Sneak Peek: The Dark Knight Rises

    Posted on July 12, 2011 by PopFunk

    This remixed post is brought to you by The Batman T-Shirt Collection and The Dark Knight T-Shirt Collection at popfunk.com, and Eric Ditzian at MTV News. The Christopher Nolan-directed action flick features the return of Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne and Batman, as well as Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine.  Anne Hathaway joins the movie as Catwoman, while Joseph Gordon Levitt takes on the role of John Blake and Tom Hardy as the villainous Bane. The Dark Knight Rises is expected to hit theaters July 2012. You can catch The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer, which is supposed to debut in front of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2," when it opens on Friday. The teaser poster for the third Batman film installment entitled The Dark Knight Rises shows what appears to be skyscrapers in Batman's hometown of Gotham City crumbling while forming the iconic Batman figure. "There is an ominous air of destruction in the urban environment: The buildings appear to be crumbling, debris raining downward — a stark visual contrast to the film title's single tweak since the previous installment: the addition of the word 'rises'." Soundoff: Will The Dark Knight Rises surpass the success of The Dark Knight? How do you feel about Anne Hathaway entering the cast as Catwoman?
