It's here at last - The Dark Knight Rises was released in the Summer of 2012 as one of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year - yes, even in a year that also saw the release of Mavel's Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man re-boot.

Gary Oldman - Commissioner James Gordon

The Dark Knight Rises may be set 8 years after the events of The Dark Knight, but Gary Oldman's Commissioner Jim Gordon apparently hasn't felt the need to change his glasses during this time.  He is apparently very comfortable wearing the same plastic rimmed frames he was wearing almost a decade earlier in the second movie.  Either he's looked after the tough old things or he just keeps replacing them with the same model after every eye test.

Peter Parker Wears Oliver Peoples Eyewear in The Amazing Spider-Man - Starring Andrew Garfield

The two key stars of The Amazing Spider-Man are seen wearing prescription glasses during the film. Andrew Garfield as the re-vamped cooler version of Peter Parker and Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors. Okay, it's a little stereotypical for both of these characters to wear glasses, I mean, they are both incredibly intelligent, Peter Parker was always a bit of a geek and Curt Connors as the (slightly) mad scientist.  But it's also true to the source material and with today's fashion, both of these characters look super cool in their designer eyewear.

Glasses Worn by Andrew Garfield - Peter Parker

In the film, Peter Parker finds an old leather briefcase that once belonged to his father. Inside he finds his father's old glasses and puts them on - strange that he would have the exact same prescription as his old man? ;)
