Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)
Here's my question: Was the limp psychosomatic? Or is a specific injury from TDK? Cause despite having worn out all his joints, the doctor says nothing of the leg, that I recall. And the prosthetic seems to lose significance later on.
His knee was in pretty bad shape as was the rest of his joints.
Doctor: [from TV spot] I've seen worse cartilage in knees.
Bruce Wayne: It's good.
Doctor: No, that's because there is no cartilage in your knee. Scar tissue on your kidneys. Concussive damage to your brain tissue. I can not recommend that you go heliskiing.
