As "The Dark Knight Rises" inches ever closer, rumors and buzz are starting to escalate as fast and furiously as the crime problem in Gotham. Today brings a trio of updates swinging from fact to fiction and everywhere in between.
Keep reading for more on a new "Rises" viral campaign, the resurgence of those Robin rumors, and a brand new look at the Joker.
The Two-Face Rises
Dead though he may be, the ghost of Harvey Dent continues to haunt Gotham City in "The Dark Knight Rises." Earlier in the week we pointed you towards the groundbreaking Harvey Dent Act, and now even more tidbits centered on the late district attorney's legacy have surfaced on the Gotham Observer, as you can see below.

The Robin Rumors Rise
Tired of those "John Blake is actually Robin" rumors? Then you should tune out now, because they're back: Forbes (of all places!) has posted their own theory of why Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character might actually turn out to be Dick Grayson, aka Robin, aka Nightwing. Basically, it boils down to this image…
…and Forbes writer Mark Hughes' belief that it looks dangerously close to the Nighwing insignia. Seems very thin to me, but you be the judge.
The Joker Toys Rise
As mentioned in yesterday's pair of Tights, there's a new Hot Toys Joker figure on the way, and it looks absolutely amazing. Even more details and photos have emerged today. Check out everything over at Toy News International.
