The Dark Knight Abraham Lincoln Rises

Is Abraham Lincoln the Batman of the 19th century? No. Of course not. However, it is the thesis of this new Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter featurette, which features a bit of new footage amidst author Seth Grahame-Smith, director Timur Bekmambetov, and producer Tim Burton talking about how much Honest Abe really is like Batman, if you think about it and kind of squint. I wouldn’t stress about it; I’m reasonably sure the whole discussion is tongue-in-cheek, partially because it presumes that Grahame-Smith’s book is 100% true, and partially because they’re discussing it so seriously that they can’t possibly be serious. I mean, “his hat is his mask”? I refuse to believe anyone — even Tim Burton — would make that comparison for real. (Via Blastr)
