Someone synched up The Dark Knight Rises trailer audio to footage from The Lion King. I kind of feel like Alfred’s dialogue should have gone to Rafiki, but otherwise it’s pretty groovy. The only problem with it is that now I’m imagining The Dark Knight trailer also done with Lion King footage, and I can’t decide who would voice the Joker, Timon or Pumbaa. I’m thinking Pumbaa, and maybe Timon could be Scarecrow from Batman Begins. Someone get on this, all right? Thanks to Greggory for the tip.

Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
