    ***WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS!***


    Saw TDKR over the weekend. What a great flick. I was not disappointed at all, though I do think TDK was better.

    Favourite part has got to be the first fight scene between Batman and Bane. That was fucking epic! It literately had me on the edge of my seat. I guess some didn't like Bane's voice, idk but I liked it. It wasn't over the top or annoying like Batman's. Actually I think it was pretty cool and Bane was played perfect-WHAT A BADASS. I do think he did go out a little too easily at the end. I was hoping for a greater, tougher final battle between the two. Oh well.

    The whole Ras Al Ghul's daughter angle I did not see coming at all. Was completely surprised by that. But I totally saw the whole cop becoming/being Robin angle from the first time I saw the trailer waay back when.

    As for Batman being dead, no way. I think it was pretty clear he lives at the end with Catwoman. Catwoman...I was pleasantly surprised by Anne Hathaway's performance. I didn't think she could pull it off, but you know what she did. She totally did. She def had some sexiness to her which I wasn't expecting from the "Princess Diary".

    If I could think of any critiques it would be that I felt there were some plot holes relating to the take over of the entire city of Gotham. Other than that it was awesomeness to the 10th degree.

    Oh and IMAX was fucking spectacular.
    I think you can let go of the princess diaries, bro.

    Its from like 2003. She was hot in that devil wears prada movie and apparently in the love and other drugs movie as well.

    I guess the last part of the movie with all the "dead or not?" stuff. It kind of lets you make your own ending and think what you want.

    i'm pretty sure, you know alfred seeing him at the table, was enough evidence that he was still alive.

    not to mention the black box thingy from the bat.

    Or maybe Alfred was Dreaming it, like he said he "often does"?

    I don't think they'll do another, but one has to keep in mind that they also said they might not do a third one as well.

    they could pull out another trilogy if they wanted to. They just have to keep it interesting and Christian Bale can't bail(no pun intended) on them. Unlike other superhero's Batman has got a shit load of villians he fights and a lot of apprentices he trains. They could stretch it out pretty long

    Exactly. Alfred obviously would be messed up after Bruce's funeral and such is why he left. He could have imagined it.

    Also to my point, is it just me or did not alot happen between bruce and selina, including the cat woman and batman scenes for them to all of the sudden "leave" together and settle down at the end?

    Then again maybe it is just part of Bruce being a billionaire playboy and that's how he "woos" women by taking them around the world.

    I think "bail" is the wrong term. I mean he's done three,that is the most by anyone. i think he has earned the right to bow out. Plus, you need to take into account just what he's done to portray this role for the past 7-8 years. I mean he's had to train his ass off and put on like 40lbs of muscle...three times!

    He's now in his 40's and it gets more dangerous health wise once you hit that age. I don't know how many "stunt" scenes as batman he does. But, it's still some serious wear and tear on the body.

    Plus, He said he is "done", when Nolan is and I'mpretty sure Nolan is done.

    i.reelz.com/movie-news/14331/the-dark-knight-rises-director-christopher-nolans-farewell-letter-to-batman/

    Quite frankly, it's more hazardous to his career than not if he continues especially if the next film bombs.

    You can still say "well, they said they wouldn't make a third one." But, there was no "farewell" letter after the second one and you also have to take into consideration that everyone who's involved with the franchise will take into consideration the tragedy partially caused by these films.

    i think unless bale is batman for the justice league movie then he has to step aside. they will have to either shit out a quick batman movie to introduce new batman or have the justice league movie be as if all the heroes are established and brought together for some reason.

    kind of like what marvel did with hulk, he won't get another introduction and the next batman could then also continue adventures as his new identity

    I guess most of what you say is true. If anything they'll stop the moves cause Bale is becoming an old man

    Ya their in a bit of trouble right now. Bale is getting old and i doubt the Justice League movie will come out for another 2 or 3 years. But like you said they could just throw in a new actor and cast him as batman.

    I don't even remember Batman being in the Justice League. Even if he is, they could just leave him out or save him for a sequel.

    Spider-Man wasn't in "The Avengers" because they didn't want to throw Maguire in there because of the mess of "Spiderman 4", which became "the amazing spiderman" and how it would end up basically kiboshing that film.

    The only reason they threw Bannerin the Avengers is the studio had fucked things up with Ed Norton and he suggested Ruffalo. They also had no character to replace him in the film

    batman is an original founding member of the justice league and he bank rolled the watch tower. spider man isn't an avenger. he has been recruited several times as a replacement along with wolverine. many of the original avenger comics had them fighting the hulk as he hulked out. and just as many others had him with them on the team.

    looking back the avengers would have been a massively different movie with no hulk. thought ruffalo was good but liked norton in the role more and thought the hulk cgi for him was better.

    ya, i liked norton better as well. probably because heès a better actor than ruffalo. but, rufalo kind of got the whole nerdy scientist thing down.

    im sure bale wont have a problem being in the justice league movie. its much less screen time than an entire batman movie and hes not that old. I was just merely commenting that it does become more hazardous as you hit your 40s. But, hes in good shape so i imagine he could do high-action or superhero films into his late 40s

    True that. But, Bruce Willis doesn't have to pack on the pounds to play a cop.

    Also, at 57. I doubt he does his own stunts, if he ever did.

    Plus, Bruce makes a living off of action movies. I mean he doesn't do a whole lot outside of that genre.

    i think norton is a better actor than ruffalo, we can argue over who is a better banner when ruffalo carries a whole hulk movie alone, and the writers try to show the depth of character. i have a feeling that they might just stick with banner in charge of the hulk and then half way through the movie he loses control and hulk breaks some stuff and ruffalo has to regain charge of the hulk.

    but for cgi i thought that nortons hulk was awesome. he was ripped to shit and pure emotion. he clearly was not in control or understanding of anything. screaming at the thunder. he was a pure rage monster. the story arc they gave is that banner has now been the hulk for who knows how many years and the hulk is starting to understand things but in the comics the only time the hulk isn't a rage monster was when banners brain was in control of the actual hulk.

    i like rage monster hulk. no one control rage monster hulk.

    Ya, ruffalo was good in what he had as banner. But, untilhe gets the film. You can't say much to back up your statements.

    I liked Norton. He was always trying to control from becoming the Hulk. But, he knew he couldn't deep down and so he just tried avoiding emotional situations. I though it was great.

    It was like a sequel to Ang Lee's. But, way better.

    Word on the web is that Ben Affleck is front runner to direct the justice league film. Which means he'll likely have a role in it as well. Which made me think he'd reprise his "Daredevil" role. But, Datedevil belongs to Marvel, not DC. So, he'd be an avenger.

    Personally, Affleck's work as director, while small is impressive. "Gone Baby Gone" and "The Town" were great.

    Plus, his work as Daredevil. He seems like the man for the Job.
