Yeah, jokes about not understanding people don't work that well when you can understand them.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Watching
the first film again, listening to how they say that a man can be destroyed but a symbol can be incorruptible, and then watching the TDKR teaser again, I think they will kill of Bruce.

It could be that Gordon-Levitt is a cop who will take up the mantle of the batman...

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I think some are making more of John Blake than they should by connecting him with Bruce. All we know about him is that he's part of a special task force under Gordon's command. We don't know what that task force is yet of course. I do think that he has an unique role to play in the film but not what so many fans seem to be thinking. The symbol being more than a man is an interesting theme to consider...but again I believe that Rises is going to be about Bruce fully accepting being Batman and having to rise to defeat Bane after being crippled by him. Killing Bruce Wayne is just too drastic for any Batman film to undertake, doesn't matter if they're rebooting the franchise after wards or not. I very much doubt DC Ent/Warner Bros would approve of this as well. Nolan or not.

Most likely we'll see Batman standing on the rooftops of Gotham at night, as per usual.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I think he gives up being Batman, and continues the work of his father, as Bruce Wayne. That would create a nice circle, in my opinion.

In Batman Begins, Wayne thought fighting crime needs a symbol that cannot be destroyed. In TDK, we see that the symbol actually makes things worse, and that you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. TDKR seems to be about poor vs. rich in a way, so it seems he failed to do good things as Bruce Wayne. And it seems that Bane actually manages to destroy Batman, also as a symbol.

So I guess Wayne returns as Batman one last time only to kick Bane's ass, and then retires.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I actually really like that shot of the suit. Also Bleeding Cool reported yesterday that tickets are already being sold for the screenings. They're close to be sold out soon.

Yeah. I really don't like the Batsuit. It's too busy.

It is the same one from "The Dark Knight" just made to look aged and rusted looking.

Oh, I know. But that's just it, I've never liked it. It's always just been too busy looking. And the lines on the cowl just make it too pinched and angular looking.

I love that batsuit because it actually looks like body armor rather than cheap rubber.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

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