FROM MTV SPLASH PAGE: "The Dark Knight Rises" novelization teases The Joker's whereabouts:
The comic's scene-in-question, posted on TMZ, features the pistol-wielding teacher brandishing the weapon at the terrified teens, saying: "Everything you've been taught is a lie. You're being groomed as slaves, while the rich mock you with the eternal promise of a success you'll never achieve."
She adds: "Today we're all going to learn something new."
FROM MTV GEEK: The new Batman novel "Wayne of Gotham" contains scenes that eerily echo the Aurora shooting tragedy:
It was impossible for me to read the final chapters of this novel without being reminded of the recent shootings at a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises." The last ultra-violent scenes in the book take place in, and immediately next to, a movie theater, in which there is a lot of shooting and blood. Also, the villain of the piece, Disciple, can't help but echo conspiracy theories bandied about in the more "fringe" areas of the Internet regarding real-life shooter James Holmes, with wild rumors of a "Jason Bourne"-type laboratory-created killer and a sudden personality alteration.

FROM MTV SPLASH PAGE: Will Joseph Gordon-Levitt take on a Batman follow-up?
"That's not for me to say," Joseph Gordon-Levitt said regarding a possible follow-up. "I think if you see the movie, it's very clear, it's conclusive and it's a great ending. It's not one of those movies that's just like, 'Well, we didn't quite know how to end it.' 'Cause those happen. They call it a trilogy, but it's not really a trilogy. It's just another movie to make more money. This is a trilogy, and this is the end of it."
