Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

The article I first referenced (which took Batman on Film's report I think) suggests that we'll get a redesigned Tumbler or closer to the Bat Tank seen in The Dark Knight.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I always figured Nolan drew inspiration for The Tumbler from the Bat-Tank as seen in The Dark Knight Returns. I'm not sure that a full-on tank vehicle would be a good idea- I sort of liked the hybrid Hummer/Lamborghini take that we saw in The Tumbler.

^ I'm not such a big fan of the Tumbler, my biased love for Tim Burton's Batmobile knows no bounds.

I'm with ya buddy, Burtons Batman set the mold of THE batmobile for me. I still think the Bugatti Veyron looks like a real life version of that. Well more of an Italian Super car version of that.

I prefer the Batmobile as a sleek sports car rather than as a tank.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

TBH I don't like the idea of a Bat Plane of any sort in the Nolan verse, just doesn't seem to fit.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I see no reason that a Bat-Plane can't work in a Nolan film. Now what type of plane used could be debated. One of the things I'm interested in seeing in "The Dark Knight Rises" is the relationship between Bruce and Lucius. Things didn't seem so peachy at the end of the last movie.

Maybe he's inspired to build the Batplane in TDKR because he couldn't get across Gotham fast enough in his Batpod to save Rachel in TDK!

Bruce probably realizes he can't do the Russian dancers and Korean smugglers routine again.

He needs his own mode of transportation when going abroad.

I don't see the problem. Lucius said that as long as the machine was at Wayne, he wouldn't be. But when he entered his name, the machine self-destructed, and he walked out with a contented look on his face. At the same time the voiceover talks about people having their faith rewarded.
