Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Out of curiosity, how could Bane "break" this Batman, short of crippling him?

I mean, Bruce Wayne has exactly one friend who is still alive, who will probably die soon anyway. Unlike the comics Batman, who could be targeted through his extended family (four Robins, three Batgirls, Catwoman, Huntress, and probably a bunch of other people who don't immediately spring to mind) and made to feel a great deal of psychological pain, the Nolanverse Batman has his aged, adoptive dad.

I guess he could reveal his identity, but that always struck me as one of Bane's cooler points, that he deduced Batman's name, but only used it as a means to find him when he wanted to rage on his vertebrae, rather than revealing it to the world and giving him problems indirectly.

Maybe Bane will send him on a soul-searing journey through time?

Incidentally, I'm pretty positive comics Bane is going to die in the last issue of Secret Six. I would bet a Coke on it, anyway.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Well for one thing we know this Bruce Wayne is supposed to be in his formative years as Batman. He's already been through a lot. The last movie put him through the ringer with the loss of his childhood best friend/love interest/human anchor. That showed him what his mistakes can cost him. If Bane is indeed the heir/protege of Ra's al Ghul it's very possible that he knows all of this already, been watching from the shadows and is going to use psychological means to "break" Bruce.

I don't see Bruce having his back broken and then "rising" to save Gotham. There's not enough screen time in my opinion to depict that. I honestly don't think Nolan has any interest in that part of the Knightfall story line. I could be wrong, this is just my opinion after all based on speculation and a ton of guess work lol.

Unless, of course, he gets his back broken and someone (Talia) takes him to a Lazarus Pit...


I'm just sayin'...

2012 is going to be huge. Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Star Trek, James Bond--I usually go to the movies once a year. I will be in the theatre for at least 3 films that I know of in 2012.
Where's "The Avengers"?
Where's The Hobbit?

That's what I mean, there's nothing left to take away from him, except his secret identity (which would be a pretty neat thing, and somewhat unprecedented, but nothing of which Batman cares about enough for it to hurt him), and Alfred (which would suck, but not be along the lines of the loss of a mate or child, neither of which this Batman has to lose).

I dunno. The Dark Knight was about eight hours long.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

@Samurai8472: Thanks for sorting out the youtube link.

@Myasishchev: One thing that could be taken away from Bruce is his illusion that Rachel was going to be with him. Another is his fortune, and his means of deploying his bat-gadgets. Bruce could be reduced to being just a naked and solitary man of no other stature, and in contrast with the first film with no possibility of "crying uncle" to return home to safety from the wilderness, as he did the first time. Others have suggested taking his health away. His mind, his sanity, everything he is, any crutch that he leans on, or anything that he depends upon, could be threatened. Does Batman depend upon any of these things that the mortal Bruce could lose? [/melodrama]

I find it interesting that Liam's voice is used in the new trailer.

This trailer was full of cliches. The words shown on screen were not much different than almost any teaser traier including (and since) the Phantom Menace, about heroes and their journeys.
These words specifically say that it's the end of the journey, which is not exactly a cliche, and is not seen in most trailers. The most obvious comparison would be Matrix Revolutions.

I personally don't think Nolan is going to end his trilogy with a broken bat. I think Bruce will be wrecked emotionally (perhaps by Selina and this Miranda Tate person) and mentality by Bane before realizing that he has to fully embrace the Bat and rise to the challenge. I'm sure the plot will become more clearer with future trailers.
Agreed. I really think that the movie is going to end on the opposite end of the spectrum, with Bruce fully accepting the role of Batman, and what it means to truly be Gotham's "Dark Knight".

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Saw the trailer attached to Harry Potter, and while it was cool to see the big Bat in the falling cityscape, the huge text onscreen proclaiming "THE EPIC CONCLUSION" was SO incredibly cheesy . They pandered way too hard with that silly line IMO.

They probably figured a bunch of people in a theater seeing the EPIC CONCLUSION of the Harry Potter series would be interested in the EPIC CONCLUSION of another series as well.

My theater didn't even play the damn thing before HP.
