And yes we see the flying Batmobile but it looks so fake. You can tell that it's suspended from wires.

Have the wires been removed from the on-set photo as well, or are you just looking for something to complain about?

Anyone who's watched The Wire or Treme will be used to going 'Huh? What'd he say?' and just continuing their viewing!

I find it interesting that some people said it looks like obvious CGI and others have said you can tell it's suspended from wires.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

When, to my eyes, it's obvious it's none of the above.

On the other hand, I don't see any wings on the Batwing, either.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

There are wings on the Batwing. They're extended when in flight. Basically looks like a flying Tumbler.

I still don't like it.
It's no Batmobile, it just isn't.
I accept it as part of this series but it's the most un-Batman thing in the series thus far.

What makes a Batmobile a Batmobile?

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

The Tumbler is obviously inspired by the Tankmobile from "The Dark Knight Returns". I didn't like it at first either but it grew on me as has the Batwing. I was thinking we would get a more Burton-esque Batwing but it just makes sense that Bruce wouldn't be able to design and build his own vehicles in these films. I'm sure when the reboot happens in a few years we'll get something a little more traditional.

Also I don't get the "most un-Batman thing" in the series comment. Bruce very well could have used a normal car like in the early comics.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

The only Batmobiles I've ever liked:

'66 TV series (impractical, but cool)
'90s TAS series
Nolan's Tumbler

The rest are just so overdone and ridiculous.

Some of the comics' Batmobiles have been all right.

It's more ridiculous when people complain about the vehicle bobbling up and down




The car rig was bouncing up and down on the road. It was unavoidable.






I'm sure Nolan took into consideration that things wouldn't go as smooth when he filmed on the streets

As opposed to sticking the batwing prop in a studio and green screening the city

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Some of the comic book Batmobiles have been awful. I kind of like the current Batmobile design which is Tumbler-esque.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Here's what I think is the story of The Dark Knight Rises:

After the events of the second movie Dark Knight, Bruce quit being Batman now he has made his alter ego into a bad guy to save the reputation of Harvey Dent, and he can't fight crime and fight the police at the same time. He also blamed himself for Rachel's death and not being able to stop Harvey's descent into madness. Bruce has put everything that has to do with Batman in secret storage within the restored Wayne Manor (but I can see Bruce stopping by to a peak of the stuff from time to time out of nostalgia of the good, old days). For eight years, Bruce has been put more of his focus on running Wayne Enterprises while Harvey Dent turns into a martyr saint that inspires the city to follow his heroic example in the fight aganist crime and corruption. But Bruce continues to wallow in depression and self-loathing, maybe feeling incomplete without being Batman half of the time. He increasingly isolates himself from other people. Alfred sees this and feels powerless in stopping the pain his surrogate son is in. Then Bane comes in. I don't think he comes to Gotham intially because of Batman. I think his reason has to do with something related to Gotham and something that's in Gotham. Catwoman is hired by Bane to serve a function in his plan. Seeing the chaos Bane unleashes forces Bruce to go back to being Batman to save the people of Gotham.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Some of that is probably right on the button...except Wayne Enterprises...some have suggested that Bruce's assets have been seized or something as set photos indicated a few months ago. There's also Miranda Tate's character to consider who is supposed to be a Wayne Enterprises board member and helps Bruce restore the company or somesuch.

I've tried putting together a comprehensive theoretical treatment together but every time I do...I keep having more questions and scrap it. There is so much stuff and so many questions going into the film and things we just don't know anything about. I have stated from the start that I do believe that he will still heavily feel Rachel's death. He hasn't let go yet...and will be hesitant to enter into any kind of romantic entanglements. This is why I'm so curious as to how he will interact with Selina and or Miranda.
