Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Not surprised to see it back. After all I believe the one Bruce had was a prototype. He probably just asked Lucius for another one I think that looks like the Bat-Pod behind it to me.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Love the Tumber, but part of me was kinda hoping that he would just rely on the Batpod for the next movie. You know, considering he's on the run from the cops and everything.

Hard to imagine him keeping a low profile while driving around the city in THAT monster.

It fits Nolan's approach to Batman. And a more "traditional" looking batmobile would look out of place in the Nolanverse.

He could have upgraded and painted his Ferrari or Lamborghini or whatever it was from TDK flat black.

If the third movie is coming full circle with "Batman Begins" than I could see them coming back to this line


Lucius Fox: She was built as a bridging vehicle. During combat, two of these would jump over a river, towing cables. Over here on the throttle, flip that open and throttle up. This will boost you into a rampless jump.


So Bruce got the second Tumbler.

I agree. At this point, though, it really doesn't make much difference.

Batman will never kill and, when it is within his power, does not permit other people to do so.

Given these facts...
They are not facts.
Fact-based conclusion, then. If you disagree, name all the folks Batman's offed, and all the times he's allowed, say, Jason Todd to shoot someone when he could stop him. I forget how or if he reacted to Manhunter in Los Angeles, but maybe that was too far away for him to realistically do anything about it. Hey, I'm willing to be proven wrong.

And I can actually name one person Batman did try to straight-up kill, and that was Darkseid. New gods evidently don't count, probably because Morrison could recognize that extending your no-kill policy to the physical manifestation of the concept of fascism is pretty stupid, even for a comic book.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Huh. Well, fair enough, although a lot of those don't count (1940s era, and ASBARTBW, most obviously), and some of those involve, implicitly or explicitly, either accidents or at least unintended consequences, looks like Batman has indeed occasionally killed.

So why isn't the Joker locked in a room to starve or suffocate to death?

Because that lacks drama?
