Christopher Nolan has explained why he and comic book writer David S. Goyer chose Bane as Batman's nemesis in "The Dark Knight Rises". To Los Angeles Times' Hero Complex, the director shared that he made the pick because he wants to "deliver a true finale and close out the trilogy in a powerful and definitive way."

"With Bane, the physicality is the thing. With a good villain you need an archetype, you know, you need the extreme of some type of villainy," the 41-year-old said. "The Joker is obviously a particular archetype of diabolical, chaotic anarchy and has a devilish sense of humor. Bane, to me, is something we haven't dealt with in the films."

50 Cent Compares Lindsay Lohan to Stripper for Nude Playboy Spread


December 13, 2011 04:33:04 GMT


50 Cent seemingly thinks that Lindsay Lohan isn't much better than a stripper. The "In da Club" hitmaker makes the comparison when offering a piece of his mind to Hollyscoop about the "Georgia Rule" actress' paycheck for her nude spread on the January/February issue of Playboy magazine.

"$1 million to pose nude is the same thing strippers do almost every day for way less," the 36-year-old rapper made his point. "If they give you a million dollars, does that change the status of what you've done? If I pay a 100 dollars to see a cooch is it the same thing as paying a million dollars when you're a movie star or celebrity? The same transaction? Or is it socially different? Does it register different because of how much?"
