Batman: The Dark Knight Rises

Recommended Posts

Niiice.

While having become less of a fan of Christian Bale since his set behavior hit the web, I am still looking forward to this movie. Because even a stuck up actor can't ruin the brilliance of Nolan in my eyes.

Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle. Unless this is a red herring photo it would appear that Catwoman is at least a partial ally of Batman in this one.

Meh, the giant eyewear makes her look like some weird fetish-obsessed surgeon.

Above is more footage of the new Bat-vehicle which has been allegedly confirmed as the Bat-copter (blades to be added in post via CG)

They are filming in DT Pittsburgh. My cousin works down there and she says it has been funny watching them make it 'winter' with the snow all over the ground. She's been posting pics like crazy on FB, but I doubt they are open to public for me to post links.

I'd be shocked if they did kill Batman. WB doesn't have the stones to do that in as major a media outlet as a motion picture. Given that Bane is the villain of the film though, I will not be at all shocked if early in the film he gives Batman a beating to within inches of his life. Probably not the back-breaking he got in the comics, just because recovery from that would push the bounds of credibility within the Nolanverse.

Well, Nolan has absolutely 100% no backing out said this is his last Batman period. With Bane the villain, I think killing is definitely on the table. Doesn't mean they can't reboot again later.

I don't think I'll be surprised either way. :D I am curious how Anne Hathaway and Catwoman fit into the movie. Everything else looks much darker.

It's possible, and if they managed to keep it entirely secret and have it happen to service the story and not just be a cash grab promotional thing I'd respect that, I'd even give them a buy on the eventual reboot as a result.

... but no, I say WB and DC don't have the balls to do it...

yeah, that's about right. I heard somewhere that Rises takes place 8 years after TDK so that may be fairly accurate (though movie Bruce is still pretty young compared to the more middle aged Bats you see there.

Love Ross' artwork for DC BTW, his stuff manages to make the traditional costumes look both real, and not silly, at the same time.

People are already whining about Bane's voice being hard to understand. I could understand him just find, but apparently Warner Bros. is asking Nolan to dial it back some.

I think the audio quality was all over the place in the trailer. There were a number of lines that weren't really clear. Doesn't really concern me this far out from the release.

I'm waiting to see the animated online video of Batman with the gravely whisper talking to Bane with his muffled dialogue.

I liked Alfred's speech, and think Catwoman seems to fit into the movie better than I thought, even though we haven't actually seen her in costume. But at least she fits the tone.

There are a couple of things from the Bane storyline that I see are present in the movie, which I am happy about.

Really? There was nothing said in that trailer that I didn't catch on the first pass (audio-wise, it took 3 viewings before I noticed Marion Cotillard's character). Or were you talking about the prologue they are showing on IMAX before MI:GP?

I don't mean clear as in I couldn't understand it. I mean clear as in clean, with no distortion. Little things like Bale's line at 1:17 is fuzzy. The middle of Anne Hathaway's speech is mixed in with the sound effects. I think the trailer is more about tone than about story.

As soon as I am able, possibly tomorrow after work, but more likely sometime this weekend. Avoiding spoilers is getting really difficult.

It was an awful story, and almost all anyone talked about in line for the movie.

I won't spoil, at all. The film is flawed, but not fundamentally, I don't think. Nolan may have overreached a bit, but that's not always a bad thing. The Dark Knight is still the best of the three, but we knew that. I enjoyed it, while noting the areas where it fell a hair short.

At the very least, Bruce Wayne told me how to pronounce the name of the playground of the rich and famous, the island that figures so prominently in many an Aberrant tale. Apparently, it is pronounced 'eye-BEETH-ah'. Who knew?

Really? I thought it was awesome! I liked Dark Knight better, but not by a lot. Nolan's attention to detail is obvious throughout. So many of the lines have two or more meanings that tie together so well. And the sound design is beautiful! I wasn't let down at all.

I rather enjoyed it as well. I have one minor quibble, and perhaps a few that rater below minor, but there was nothing I found grossly out of place insofar as Nolan's trilogy was concerned. An excellent conclusion to his film series IMO.
