^ Yep. That'd be my one gripe with the suit design.
That's really my only gripe.

You would think after eight years he would have developed a new suit? I guess after the one Lucius perfected in The Dark Knight, Bruce didn't deem it necessary to build a new suit. Or perhaps Lucius was still too upset at him for the sonar device to bother to build him a new one.

Why should he develop a new suit or car if the damn things work?

Well, in all fairness, the new suit did make him more susceptible to knives and gunfire. In The Dark Knight, he got stabbed and shot a fair amount of times. You would think he would want to improve upon that.

LOL @Timby, your own post contains a copyrighted image in the quote. You need to remove those, too, if you really mean it.

Entertainment Weekly has already posted those images for distribution. The article itself, however, has not been.

According to the EW article

The Dark Knight Rises begins 8 years later, with Bruce Wayne still recovering mentally and physically from The Joker/Two-Face’s actions in The Dark Knight.
The Batcave is back! So is the waterfall, lake, and a new plastic cabinetry that rises from the water with the push of a button.
Bruce Wayne will have to repair his relationships with Alfred and Lucius Fox.

I assumed that he must give up his role as Batman some time after TDK and has brought this one out of cold storage, after Bane makes it necessary for him to re-down the cowl.

I thought that at first as well, and that could very well be the case, but according to the Entertainment Weekly article, Batman has been a "reviled scapegoat" for the past eight years. It sounds, at least to me, that he's still been Batman for that time- he's just been hounded by the police and the citizens of Gotham City.

Unless, of course, that Gotham has temporarily cleaned itself up in the eight years since Harvey Dent's death, and Batman is no longer needed (until Bane comes along, and exposes Dent for who he was, thus ruining whatever good will Batman and Gordon "earned" with that lie). That probably makes more sense. I just find it weird that Batman is non-existent for all that time. I'm sure it has something to do with the story, and perhaps the first part of the film is Bruce Wayne dealing with the "loss" of Batman: without Batman, what does he do with his time?

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

8 years is a pretty long time, so for him to go masquerade around as billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne had to have been pretty daunting in itself. Booze and women, always a good cure though. Haha, great now I'm thinking of that classic montage sequence from American Psycho wear he has a threesome with the 2 prostitutes to the tune of Sussudio, all while checking himself out and flexing in the mirror!

I wonder if Nolan told Hardy, "You're going to play the bad guy, but you're going to have to shave your head," and Hardy went catatonic.

Didn't he shave his head to play Preator Shinzon though? So not really a first.

He was also bald in Bronson. So, nope, unlikely to have been a biggie.
