You can tell folks are starting to get excited for 'The Dark knight Rises' — it's been spoofed on 'Saturday Night Live'.
Steve Buscemi came face to face with Batman at the weekend for a sketch that saw the Dark Knight invading Commissioner Jim Gordon's privacy.
Buscemi takes the role as Gordon who grows steadily more tired of Batman's disappearing and reappearing antics. It starts on the roof next to the famous bat signal and ends... well... check it out for yourself right here.
The 'Broardwalk Empire' and 'Reservoir Dogs' star was hosting the long-running show and, as is tradition, took part in some of the night's sketches.
In other Batman news Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer has ambitious plans for 'The Dark Knight Rises' score.
He told Collider, "I said to Chris [Nolan], 'Would it be okay if I got the most outrageous orchestra together and tried this experimental thing?' It involved chanting and all sorts of stuff. And, if I decided that it was just complete rubbish, then we could just throw it away."
Nolan liked the result and Zimmer got to work on a score based around chanting, the same chants that could be heard at the end of the film's teaser trailer released this past summer.

"The chant became a very complicated thing because I wanted hundreds of thousands of voices," he said, "It's not so easy to get hundreds of thousands of voices. So, we Twittered and we posted on the internet, for people who wanted to be part of it. It seemed like an interesting thing."
If you go here you can upload a recording of your own chanting with a chance to be in the finished film and part of Nolan's 'Dark Knight' legacy.
He said, "We've created this world, over these last two movies, and somehow I think the audience and the fans have been part of this world. We do keep them in mind. And I thought it would be something nice, if our audiences could actually be part of the making of the movie and be participants in this."
