Two note Batman theme?

Was that a typo or a misread?

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I'm not going to read spoilers about that 8-year gap, but I've been thinking about it. I've been wondering if the gap is in the movie itself.

No spoilers ahead, just my speculation...

^ That's the popular theory. Guess we'll know for sure in two weeks.

The animated series was where I thought it was always Ray SHH! Ah Ghoul.

When Batman Begins changed it I thought it was weird.

Here's what I think will happen (at least in the most broad sense)

Hmm, maybe Nolan and Goyer weren't familiar enough with Arabic and/or the character to know how to pronounce it.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Reposting because most of what has been talked about on this page has been explained in the production notes

Spoiler for what's being discussed on this page

Lots of production notes have (officially) been released. They do of course contain spoilers, but mostly about the eight year gap:
http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=92233

And (apart from the film itself) I can't wait to see a good making of about it - if I read that correctly the plane stunt in the prologue was mostly real.

Most of the production notes. About 30 pages in a .pdf

Spoiler for what it is




I don't know if people will be groaning at the thought of the same trick being used twice like Batman Begins

"Aw jeez again?"

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

The animated series way of pronouncing that character's name is supposed to be the correct way. I do remember David Goyer giving an explanation of why they chose to pronounce it the way it is in the Nolan trilogy, but forget what it was now.

International TV spot with a good dose of new footage peppered in.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

There's a new book out which has a police report about the Joker's origin, and a little reference to Robin as well. IGN has an article about it.

It may not have any impact on TDKR at all, but there has been a lot of speculation about JGL's character so I suppose there could be a slight chance they use Robin's backstory for him. More likely it's just a cute reference for fans.

There was a whole thread about the pronounciation here:
http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=149377

In Summary: Depending on which dialect you use, both versions are correct.
