Ugh. I really hate Bale's Batman voice.
Can someone explain to me how I'm supposed to take a movie featuring a billionaire who dresses like a bat, a cat burglaress who dresses like a cat, and a luchador seriously?
I don't know but I'm sure you'll get a 50 page dissertation about it if you pose this question on the right forums.
It's weird, but live-action Batman looks pretty ridiculous, whereas animated Batman (not the Brave and the Bold one, but the previous one) is pretty bad-ass, even without other DCU heroes showing up.
well Kleenex, not the one before it, since that would be "The Batman" and that wasn't very good. But Batman: The Animated Series is probably as responsible for this movie series as Batman: Year One was. By which I mean: The nostalgia of that show for folks in their late 20's/early 30's made them want a Batman that didn't have nipples on his suit, so when Batman Begins came out we latched onto it with crazy fanboy fervor.
I forgot about "The Batman," which also wasn't terribly good. I'm referring to the Timm/Dini era and most, if not all (there are a few I've yet to see) that include Kevin Conroy. I was rather hoping that rumors of a live-action "Batman Beyond" were true, with Clint Eastwood as a crusty, decrepit Bruce Wayne.
This is a very interesting conversation, but you still haven't answered my question.
Maybe, maybe not. But if you want to discuss rumors and/or jerk off all over yourselves about how awesome Batman is, you can do it elsewhere in your own conversation thread.
That is true! This thread should be exclusively reserved for making the same old and boring observations that have been made about every 'serious' comic book movie.
Still not buying Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, and her shitty costume with serrated high heels so she can kick/stab people isn't helping. Everything else looks fine though.

Featuring the Bathovercraft, the Batdirigible, and the Bathotairballoon... all armor plated and painted black.
a 2 minute trailer? i don't really want to watch this if it's going to spoil most of the movie
Spoiler: Bane sounds like he's talking into a plastic Solo cup. He and Batman fight. Leave theater. Prepare for yet another franchise reboot, probably starring a teenage Bruce Wayne paired with a big-tittied ninja in place of Alfred.
So, I'm curious...what SHOULD a guy with a mask over his face sound like when he talks?
i really wish they would do a movie of grant morrison's batman: gothic. i have enjoyed this series so far and will probably pay to see it in the theaters
Looks good, but as much as I like Nolan, I really do think Catwoman was a bad idea. Maybe the full movie will prove me wrong, but she feels like such a shoehorned in character with no real place in the feel of this trilogy.
My guess to the storyline is that Bane is the new leader of the League of Shadow and it makes a sort of full-circle plot line from Batman Begins.
All this serious epic schlock, and they end the trailer with the obligatory one line set up into a pun/joke followed by ridiculous looking CG money shot.
Maybe you guys can solve a batman problem for me. I'm an on-again/off-again comic book fan, and my rudimentary understanding of batman is that he doesn't use guns for moral reasons.
However, he seems to use cars and airplanes with missile launchers on them. Whats the rub, pals?

The 'no-guns' thing is actually pretty wishy-washy depending on which version you look at. Frank Miller had him use a rifle in The Dark Knight Returns; he actually used a gun in one of his original comic book appearances. Tim Burton had him blow up a factory full of criminals (and kill multiple times). Even in the modern comics, he finally breaks down and shoots Darkseid with a radion bullet.
The 'no guns' thing isn't a hard rule of the Batman mythos; neither is the 'no killing'. It's more of a general guideline that's highly dependent on the person currently steering the story. Some Batman stories portray him as against guns because they're easy; others portray him as having a phobia, or a mental block against them because one killed his parents. Others have him not using guns because he's a ninja and he doesn't need one to fuck up your shit. So the basic answer is 'it depends'.

A storm is coming. The clouds are dark, the winds are strong, and I, am afraid. Some who advocate same sex marriage have taken the issue far beyond same sex-couples.
This trailer finally removes all doubt that Batman is just a propaganda tool to push the gay agenda on us.
This just look horrifically embarrassing.

The inevitable circling of the drain following the inescapable fact that Batman just really doesn't have any realistically credible or interesting villains once you get rid of the joker
and catwoman dude, seriously, was two fuckups not enough to prove that point already?
you know what i'm actually going to reneg on that last statement because batman returns was the perfect treatment of Penguin and Catwoman, at least in regard to the inherent respect their characters deserve.
let's just have a sexy party and talk about bruce west in the morning
Poetv's reaction to a possibly decent movie where there is a plethora of shitty movies in Hollywood is pretty hilariously predictable.
I like the Batman Nolan movies, and a good part of Begins is probably the best Batman related thing ever, is just that these movies feel a bit flat and cold many times. They either stuff to many characters and sub-plots (The Dark Knight) or they seem to be lacking a better pacing, both with the direction and dialogues. Also, the beardo in me laments how none of these movies (Burton and Shumascherwhatever you spell it included) ever remember that Batman is a detective, so he should be doing some, you know, detective work.
