I've trusted this director and this cast through two of the finest Bat-stories I've been able to absorb in any form of fiction, written or on screen. I'm not thrilled with Bane as a choice (despite being familiar with both his comic, animated and god-awful Batman and Robin portrayal)...but...my trust continues nonetheless.

I look forward to seeing whatever will be done with these two.

Yes, it's a crappy title, as was the Batman Begins title.

And Riddler is not the villain, sadly.

Kindda makes me wonder if they'll actually go with Catwoman or Bane.

i herd that it will be bane.

Ann Hathaway will be playing Catwoman, who will most likely serve as a parallel to Batman.

The other, will be played by Tom Hardy, who will most likely be the main villain, will be everyone's favorite intelligent steroid-induced muscleman, hailing from South America, Bane.


Good call on that one. I'm starting to suspect conspiracy.

I hope they use Bane's origin story. That always gets overlooked in favour of the juiced brute intro.

Just like Ledger, I'll bet everyone will be surprised by Hathaway. I feel like they made a good choice. She can't be no worse than Phiefer. I don't know anything about the guy playing Bane, and usually it turns out good. Eckhart doing Dent really worked for me. I just wished he wasn't dead. Two Face was my favorite in the comic. And I hope they do a orgins story for Bane. After Schumacker's (or however you spell it) goof-up, it can't be any worse, either. I would love to see some side characters like Scarface or Montoya and Bullock. I doubt he'll have Harley in there anywhere.

You know, when I first heard that Hathaway would be playing Catwoman my first reaction was "Oh God, why!?" But having seen her in Love and Other Drugs I am fairly confident that she will do the role justice.

Double Negative! My arguement wins! Go-------o victo------ry! :D

On a side note, is anyone disappointed about it not being Two Face? I'd love to see a gritty, badly disfigured, realistic Two Face with a well rendered double personality complex.

We got 2Face in the last film, and according to Nolan....he's dead.

Well. I'll say this- it really isn't her, it's how she did the part. I don't know if that was her doing or that's how they wanted her to portray the character, but that's not how she is (or was) in the comic, to me. Sorry if it's splitting hairs or whatever. I'm just weird on such things as the Bat.

And YES, i was disappointed over it not being Face!! He is my fav of all the villains in the comic. I was hoping maybe Nolan would bring him back due to Leadger's untimely demise - wow I know a few big words....

The problem with Two-Face...well, you know how he fell off that building then stopped moving? Yeah, he was dead. Nolan had to explain this to people in-depth. "Oh, but Batman didn't die from it!" Batman is in peak physical condition and was wearing advanced body armor, and is capable of surviving falls that would break another man's legs. (Which was shown earlier in the film)

Maroni fell from about the same distance (in my opinion) at the club, and he survived. No armor or nothing......

Maroni didn't have half his body burned off and didn't have a guy in body armor land on him.

I had considered saying that, but then it's been a while since I watched the movie and I am horrible at judging distance.

I can judge distance enough to know there was a sizable difference.

There's this thing that I (and Kevin Smith) like to call "movie magic"- anything is possible in any movie standards. Regardless of face's burns and lack of body armor, it's still possible, in movie standards, that he can survive the fall. What makes him not survive is the fact that Nolan said he didn't. In real life, the fall that Maroni took would have shattered both his legs since he tried to land on his feet like a cat. I've seen that happen on a construction site to a guy (and he screwed himself because he felled the drug test).

I know this is really a pointless argument we are having, but it's still fun to have, in my opinion. Used to have these "debates" at the comic store all the time with a buddy of mine. I do miss that..... :sad:

We used to have these crazy discussions at the store and my wife would walk in and think we're actually mad at each other. Yeah, that's one thing I miss about the place. And like I always say, "Why can't everyone have their own theory about this stuff. It's imaginary anyways."

I have a similar story, the wife always thought we wanted to kill each other.
