Person in the window could be Harvey as the right side of his face looks scarred...or at least is in shadow.

Cory Michael Stewart, Victoria Cartagena, and Andrew Stewart-Jones have been upped to regular cast members in the show, having initially been set as guest stars in the pilot. They play Edward Nygma, Renee Montoya, and Crispus Allen respectively.

Montoya and Allen as regulars? This may be somewhat similar to Gotham Central after all. (Except that was a series about how the Gotham PD operated in a world where Batman, his allies, and his enemies were already active.)

I like Bruno Heller, but he's just talking out of his ass right now. His basically dissing Christian Bale with this shit. An Academy award winner. A man who is, without any exaggeration, one of the fines actors of his generation.
Bale is a phenomenal performer. Without a doubt my favorite actor. He's incredibly versatile.
Not convinced. I've seen him in nine or ten movies and I've never come away thinking he's bad, but I've never been hugely impressed either. He's good enough, but...

Bale is a fantastic actor in other movies, but I always found his Bruce/Batman to be incredibly dull for some reason. He just never had the magnetic presence that you would expect the character to have (no matter which costume he was wearing).

Bale is really good in other movies and I liked his Bruce Wayne as he pulled off the self-centered rich asshole thing pretty well. His Batman? Well, a lot has been said about that over the years.

I'll never understand people's dislike of Bale's Batman voice.

It sounds like he's gargling glass shards while being strangled?

It's cranking the knob to 11 when a 6 or 7 will do? (See every other actor's take on the Batman-over-Bruce voice.)

It was "auto-tuned" in post to be more ridiculous?

He uses it even when he's around people who know he's Bruce Wayne so there's no need to do it to either cover his true identity or to strike fear into the listeners?

I mean would it really have been that hard for Bale to just drop his voice a couple octaves and be done with it? Did he really need someone to twist his larynx into a knot before shooting to get the right amount of "Jack Palance with a severe throat infection"-iness to his voice?

The rest are a matter of preference, but as for this: YOU NEVER BREAK CHARACTER. Once you put on the mask, you have to stay in the mindset so that you don't accidentally break character in a moment of panic or distraction.

So conflicted. Everything about it looks amazing, but then they have to go and bring up the Joker, and I so do not want that. You can do anyone else, but the Joker needs Batman.
