By now you are all surely aware of the devastating news coming out of a midnight TDKR screening in Aurora, Colorado. There’s not much we can add to the story itself, but we wanted to take a moment to say that we were devastated by the news, and the families of the victims are very much in our thoughts.
There’s no doubt that it puts a major damper on what would have otherwise been a joyously nerdy weekend. It means that The Dark Knight Rises will forever be tainted with this tragedy. We’re also fairly sure that the Batman character, the movie and possibly the comic book industry as a whole will be dissected by the press (irresponsibly I’m sure) to see if it played any role in the actions of what is clearly a deranged lunatic.
The whole thing is absolutely heartbreaking.
