The Dark Knight Rises, besides being a fantastic film, is currently the only thing in theaters worth watching. Consequently it’s taking up a lot of attention in the internet-o-sphere. And you know what that means, folks. The tumblerers, redditors, and general internet denizens have created a whole pile of memes for us to enjoy! So without further adieu, the top 5 Dark Knight Rises memes. No spoilers (except for The Dark Knight, which came out four years ago and thus is FAIR GAME).
1. Spotlight Kitty vs. Harvey Dent
Okay, so granted, this image is from the Dark Knight, but the meme is new! It’s amazing how the Spotlight professionally creates hilarious situations like this, and CollegeHumor’s fire-breathing kitty seems more than a match for poor Harvey’s face.
2. The Dark Knight Boops
What more needs to be said? This adorable cut-together from photos taken on set makes the for the most d’awww worthy picture of Bane you’ve ever seen.
3. How Batman Should Have Defeated Bane
Yeah, I lied. Now THIS is the most adorable picture of Bane you’ve ever seen.
4. The Lion King Rises
Christopher Nolan saw this fan-trailer and called it “pretty epic.” Christopher Nolan, the guy who directed the movie the trailer is lifted from. What an amazing age we live in where this type of thing is possible.
5. Annoyed Alfred
By far the biggest meme to come from The Dark Knight Rises, Annoyed Alfred is hilarious, incredibly versatile, and succinctly (and humorously) sums up one of the most powerful scenes in the film.
BONUS ROUND: Christian Bale Is Awesome
