Wouldn't that just rehabilitate Batman? After eight years (OMG), I doubt the impact this reveal would make on the people of Gotham would be that big.
I think Bane starts to shake things up when he reveals the true nature of Harvey Dent. I think that new tidbit of information would be enough to rile up Gotham citizens.

Batman comes out of retirement, gets beaten up badly because he's too self confident, retreats, and then comes back after a phase of heavy training and self discovery.

So, he figures he's earned enough goodwill to stretch out a little eh? And eight years is a big jump. The entire rogues gallery could have come and gone in that time.
And Dick Grayson is at least 7 or 8 now.


Going from "Batman Begins" Bruce should be at least 38 or 39 years old.

It's Rocky III! After Alfred takes a heart attack, Batman will be trained in the Eye of the Tiger by Ra's Al Ghul!

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I am really excited about the eight year flash forward idea. Genius. The pics look great as well. Can't wait.

^ It's a very brave bit of story-telling but it's kinda frustrating that there are eight years worth of stories in this Bat-universe we'll miss out on.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I don't know if I'd say that was frustrating...after all it leaves a gap for possible tie in novels

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

^ True - it's just that I'd rather see the movies.

Of course, it's somewhat academic, since Nolan has made it clear that this was going to be his last Batman movie. So I suppose it makes more sense that the beginning and end (?) of Batman's career should span a decade or so. More so than cramming the X-Men trilogy into what seems to have been just a handful of months, for example.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I'm quite surprised but very pleased about the flash forward. I wasn't expecting something like that at all. It does raise all kinds of plot and character questions now

Genius? It's not really the first sequel that does that.

Yeah, seems like an odd jump in time but, at the same time, I suppose they have to account for the length of time that has passed since the first movie, not to mention properly set-up the Batcave, the new Batmobile and other Bat-Devices.

Eight years seems like a decent length of time but, at the same time, also fairly extreme as a lot can happen in that passage of time.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Well, since this is a Nolan film I wouldn't be surprised if there were flashbacks to show what happened during the "missing" eight years.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Love the idea of finally seeing the older, more experienced Batman in one of these movies (instead of just the guy still figuring stuff out), but I have to admit I was also looking forward to seeing the immediate aftermath of the last movie-- where he's on the run from a huge man-hunt, has no mansion or bat-cave, and gets around only on a bat-pod.

And I also guess this means the Tumbler is the final Batmobile in the Nolanverse. Cool as it is, I was kinda holding out hope that is was just an "early years" version.

He could have trained 5 Robins in that time.
