    If anything, Vancouver B.C. would be the closest comparison to us.

    Rumor: Scarecrow is a judge. Apparently Gotham has turned into a war zone. Law and order is out. Bane's merc's control the city. Scarecrow is sentencing people to walk an icy river. This was posted a few weeks ago here [YT]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-FzhQlnA5c[/YT]

    Fantastic. One of the best lines delivered in the two movies so far is when Murphy asks Falcone, "would you like to see my mask?"

    I was hoping we hadn't seen the last of him.

    Whenever I think of dreary, gray, places with constant rain and overcast skies London always comes to mind.

    Awesome. I'm excited to see the Scarecrow again and I hope the above rumor about him being a judge is true.

    I do like how Scarecrow is a running theme throughout the movies. Even if his role is minimal. Something about the villain of fear, emotions and nightmares is running around parallel to Batman who is creating fear and nightmares for the criminal underwold. Joker said as much to the crime bosses something like [paraphrase]He's got you all scared[/p] At least that's a parallel I'm drawing.

    Hey, do you guys think it would be foolish of me to try to go in to the NYC casting call, considering I have no military or martial arts experience? A trip to NYC is not a regular occurrence and would be pricey for me right now. Thanks

    If it's not in the budget I'd say no, but if you're in the vicinity I'd say break a leg!

    I hope there's more Bat-stuff in this movie. Batman Begins was all about bats, with lots of metaphors and symbolism. The Dark Knight only had the sonar, and compared it to a submarine instead.

    Do you think I'll be rejected out of hand because I have no military/ martial arts experience?

    I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Audrey Hepburn has been dead for eighteen years.

    If they require military or martial arts experience, you should be fine.

    Yeah, if by "odd," you mean bizarrely stupid. Because that's what they are, bizarrely stupid. Heels are for fliers.

    What I'm saying is that I don't have military experience.

    ^ I would go just for the experience, military experience or not. I love the rumour about the lawless Gotham City. It sounds like they've taken the gist of Knightfall and mixed it a bit with Arkham City's plot. I hope that rumour is true.

    I've just returned from my first weekend in London in nearly 30 years and it was like being in a Mediterranean city. Now, dreary, wet Belfast on the other hand.... Hard to believe how close they are!
