    According to IGN there have been two different stories about the scene being filmed in the set photos.
    Given the general tone of the movies, I'm thinking the second is more likely, but at the same time, I wouldn't put it past Nolan to throw us a curve ball and actually include the Lazarus Pit.

    Batman would take it so easily. One EMP batarang and Robocop's toast.

    Batman clearly would have had enough time to prepare.

    I swear I remember seeing somewhere that there was a Robocop/Batman comic.

    I was probably mixing it up with the Alien or Predator crossovers.

    I know there was Robocop VS Terminator. I remember playing the Sega Genesis game.

    Dark Horse did a mini back in the early 90s when they had both licenses.

    Dynamite Entertainment now has both and are doing one this summer, slated for July release. I'm looking forward to it but also peeved cause the ongoing Robo series just kinda died with no good explanation at issue #7(which was 'to be continued').

    The L.A. Times is reporting that the budget for The Dark Knight Rises will purportedly be $250 million. Comparatively speaking, the budgets for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight were $150 million and $180 million respectively.

    Talk about a budget increase! :eek:

    ^^^^
    WOW!!! I know it's an intangible we never know the answer to but you know marketing will be at minimum $100m most likely more so that puts it's break even point very high!!

    Just using the budget to gauge it's sucess is already a high bar. Hope it delivers like we all want iy to. Joker is such a draw to Joe Q Public. Can the sequel still get people interested for Rises with no Joker? That should be a concern at this point.

    It's not like people are just going to NOT watch the movie just because it doesn't have a big name villain in it. Let's hope anyways.
