Trump Campaign Video That Used ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Score Removed After Warner Bros. Takes Legal Action

A Gundam holding a gun, damn!

Donald Trump has compared himself to Batman in the past, therefore, it didn’t come as much of a shock when he determined to use the score of Dark Knight Rising for his campaign video. However, it probably would have been a wise decision to clear it with Warner Bros. before posting it.


Trump was pushed to remove his Dark Knight Rising-themed campaign video for the 2020 elections today after Warner Bros confronted him with legal action. The campaign video included music taken from Dark Knight Rising which was composed by Hanz Zimmer’s as well as font taken from the film’s title cards.

Trump uses the film’s font while pushing for a 2020 victory. “First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they call you a racist. Donald J. Trump. Your vote. Proved them all wrong. Trump: The Great Victory. 2020, ” it read |over the screen.

The video also took aim at some of his political opponents such as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as well as Hollywood stars who’ve already been critical of his presidency such as Amy Schumer and Rosie O’Donell.
