Today's news you might've missed:
Warner Bros., home to DC Comics, has announced that it's attaching the third and final trailer for its long-awaited movie “The Dark Knight Rises” to Marvel’s “The Avengers,” which hits theaters on May 4, according to NolanFans.com.
This isn't the first time the two comics mainstays joined forces. DC and Marvel teamed up four years ago, when Warner Bros. promoted the final trailer for 2008's "The Dark Knight" during a screening of Marvel's "Iron Man," which came out a few months before.

So far the decision is looking like a total win for everyone involved: "The Avengers" is reportedly tracking to make at least $150 million during its opening weekend, and Warner Bros. doesn't want to miss out on that audience.
"We see this placement as a good strategic decision," one exec told Deadline. "We always want our trailers to be seen with films that people want to see - and a lot of people will be going to see 'The Avengers!'"

The next day, under a bright noonday sun, Bruce Hornsby sang a moving rendition of “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” which was made famous by Helm and The Band in 1969. Hornsby followed this up with his original classic “The Way It Is.”

The wax statue that is now in D.C.'s Presidents Gallery by Madame Tussauds is on loan from the Las Vegas location, and is dressed in a one-shoulder black catsuit and platform heels with its blonde hair fashioned into the shape of a bow.
To commemorate the statue's limited time at the museum, fans were encouraged to dress like Gaga with the opportunity for five little monsters to win an iPod shuffle and an iTunes gift card.
