The Smashing Pumpkins have recorded a new song for the

soundtrack of the upcoming Batman and Robin film entitled "The End is

the Beginning is the End."

The song features former NIN member Chris

Vrenna and will be the first single from the album. The Pumpkins are scheduled

to convene with the movie's director, Joel Schumacher, next month, to film a

video for the song.

The fourth Batman caper features yet another new Dark

Knight, this time ER's George Clooney, with side-kick Chris O'Donnell, Batgirl

Alicia Silverstone, Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy and a silver-flecked Arnold

Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze.
