Hypable’s exclusive superhero podcast has returned (much like The Dark Knight himself) to dissect the brand newprologue poster and trailer for ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’

Watch The Dark Knight Rises trailer below and then listen to our all new episode.


In this episode:

– We play through the trailer to The Dark Knight Rises and discuss how amazing it is.
– We quickly analyze the trailer, the dialogue in it, and what we see that we’ve never seen before
– We discuss how topical and political the trailer is, specifically how Catwoman’s dialogue relates to the 99% movement.
– We reiterate how mindblowing the trailer is and dig up some things that are hidden in the trailer that you may not have caught.
– Dark Knight Rises prologue talk then reroutes us to a detailed description of the first six minutes of The Dark Knight Rises.
– We discuss the prologue, our reactions to it, and the difference between seeing it on a giant IMAX screen and a computer screen.
– We emphasize how important it will be to see this film in IMAX
– We discuss the poster for the Dark Knight Rises and go over if Batman will die, if Robin (or Nightwing) will take over for him, and if Batman’s cowl will be passed to someone else at the end of TDKR.
– Jeff turns into Bane and has to leave the podcast because we can’t understand what he’s saying.
– We quickly go over the new poster for The Amazing Spider-Man and we hope that it’s not trying to sell something that it’s not.
– John compares and contrasts the football stadium scene from the trailer to what it was like to be on set and see it with his own eyes

  • Eoin

    Could someone please tell me why Jimmy was on glee for 4 episodes? Did he have an arc?

    • Jimmy Bean

      Hahaha, I didn’t have an arc or any lines, but my character DID have a name. Edgar the drafting nerd. 

  • KayRou

    Thanks for this podcast guys. I was laughing so hard. Especially when Jeff turned into Bane and had to bail. Gold.

  • Liliana Baptista

    Hi guys, great podcast! Can I ask why I could only hear Jimmy on my left earpiece and John and Jeff only on my right earpiece? Both on my iPod and computer…

    • Lucien

      i heard that too!

    • Jimmy Bean

      We recorded in “stereo” for better quality. I don’t know why it chose me to be all by myself on the left, but it did. If yall don’t like it, we can change it back, it’s all about what you guys like listening to after all!

  • Thymeandtea

    Hey guys, I just wanna ask what is the title of the score at the beginning and end of the podcast ? I searched for the dark knight theme, fire rises, and the trailer music, but couldn’t find it. Please reply. Thanks and it was an awesome podcast :D

    • Jimmy Bean

      Hey there! The music is actually an original composition by Andy B. Lau, also known as brokendeck on We commissioned him to write us an original theme and he did an OUTSTANDING job!

      • thymeandtea

        Thank you!!
        Love it.
        And it’s so fitting for this podcast! :D
