    I much prefer the full mask. It's too bad we ended up with Zoidberg mouth.

    The last one reminds me of the Predator pretty much.

    I like the one we got best two, although the second one is a close second.

    Yep that would have showcased the "S&M" quality of Bane's mask

    I don't see S&M, I see a walrus.

    He looks like the original Bane. Not sure it's a good idea, but he does.

    In many shots in the last film, batmans cape looks like a black bath towel they fastened to his neck

    It's always looked like that all the way back to BATMAN BEGINS.

    Not sure if this has been discussed before, but at the end when the tech guys explain that the autopilot has been fixed to Fox, are they in the Bat ... the Bat that should've blown up over the ocean?

    What I find strange is how by a certain point Wayne knows that Daggett is working with Bane and company, yet he takes no action against Daggett who continues to sit on the board unmolested as if nothing is wrong. Doesn't the situation call for arrest or apprehension of some kind?

    Depends if taking action against Dagget would reveal that Bruce Wayne was Batman.

    Yes Bane knew but did what about Daggett or any other of the Wayne Enterprises board?

    That was so noticable in the Dark Knight. That is one of the things I didn't like about that costume.

    And why did Blake have any reason to assume Selina knew something about what happened to Bruce Wayne? Wild guess?

    Well I guess Bruce Wayne reported her for stealing his jewelery.

    ^ The movie had its flaws but I think that assessment is too cynical.

    - Batman and Bruce dying on the same day? The city was under siege and a lot of people got hurt, so Bruce dying around the time Batman did wouldn't necessarily raise suspicion.

    - Bane is smart and Bruce was a member of the League of Shadows, so Bane knowing who he was made sense.

    - So what if Bruce hobbled around and we got Batman for 33 minutes. The movie was good drama and I'd rather see that than non-stop action.

    - I don't remember the scene where Bruce was driving around with John Blake.

    I thought he told Alfred he wasn't going to do that.
