This past weekend saw the release of The Dark Knight Rises, the epic conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s epic Dark Knight trilogy, and we here at To-Ag Studios couldn’t be more excited. Join as us we discuss the film and it’s conclusion to the series, done in a way only a master filmmaker and storyteller like Nolan could achieve. Snap on your cape, gas up the Tumbler, and make sure Alfred keep the doors unlocked on his way out as we get ready for an all new *spoilerific* episode of Monkey in the Cage!

(23:44) – WARNING!!! THE DARK KNIGHT RISES SPOILERS AHEAD!
(50:18) – Robert discusses his take on the comic / film comparison, we talk the non-superhero approach, and how it stacks up to The Avengers.
(53:16) – We weigh-in on our favorite film of the trilogy, a Game of Thrones cameo, and the visual continuity of Gotham City (with obvious exceptions). Also, we debate the real world counter-parts of Gotham and Metropolis.
