I've pre-ordered my midnight release tickets. :DShadowsDemon
I'm definitely paying to see this in theaters, but I'm waiting a week or two after it opens. My days of going to midnight showing are long done. WAY too crowded for me.

I don't care for crowds myself, but there's something about the excitement of a midnight premiere.

The closest IMAX has had its midnight premiere tickets sold out for a month or so. Guess I'll be attending my local theater's midnight premiere.

I'm so happy Nolan did Batman the way it should be done, and I love that nearly everyone agrees.

CAN'T WAIT!

Travo_basic

I do. I can't really watch Batman 89 now that I've seen his vision.


I always loved how Tim Burton just "forgot" about Batman's moral codes.

Like when Batman drove through the Joker's factory and blew it up.

Or when he attached dynamite to the Penguin's goon and pushed him down a shaft.

I know, cool when I was a kid and was unaware of Batman's code. Now, it just cringeworthy.

Or when he grabbed this guy's head with his leg to drag, flip him down from high heights and possibly killed him.

I pre-ordered my Dark Knight Trilogy IMAX tickets when they went up. Now...I wait.

Technically speaking, the guy Batman burned to death could've easily ran away.

Everyone else he killed had little to no chance of surviving.

[QUOTE="thebest31406"]I think it's wild how most of the folks here believe that Bale is a better Batman than Keaton. How can anyone like that grumbling voice of his?TheShadowLord07


because they read the comics

i seen the agrument being made but how can you can tell batman grumbles in a comic book

Well Batman's voice has been described in the comics as being gutteral, almost animalistic.

I always here Conroy's voice when reading the comics, unless Batman is pissed, were he sound more animalistic.

I didn't like TDK as much as most people did, but trailer 4 got me really hyped for Rises.

It has also been described once as a bad Clint Eastwood impersonation, but the less said about the Batman comic from which it originated, the better.

Lol

I said grumbling; I have no problem with a deep voice.

I guess it bothered me sometimes, especially inTDK, but it was usually pretty good.

I'm going to predict a 9.0 rating on IMDb for the first month.

I watched The Dark Knight last night and will watch Batman Begins today, can't wait for this one. Also, can't wait to see what Nolan does with Superman, but that's another thread.:P

Nolan will do superman? Wasnt the 300/watchmen/Sucker Punch director (Zach Sneidjer or somethin) doing the remake already?

I read it was Nolan... Maybe I'm wrong.

No, he's producing and writing it.

#139 Posted by Serraph105 (27815 posts) -

as much as I like the Tumbler (it's a cool vehicle after all), it's just not the batmobile. 89 version is the best imo.

And Goyer is writing the story and screenplay a long with Nolan. I could've sworn I saw Jonathan Nolan also writing it at one point though.

I just checked, he's not listed. I did hear that Chris Nolan wanted his brother to direct Man of Steel, but WB passed on that. Still not entirely sure if he's part of the writing team or not though.

to think Goyer had a hand in writing the second Ghost Rider movie.

Gotta go with the Tumbler. While it's not the Batmobile, I've never been particularly fond of any version of the Batmobile. And the Tumbler just seems to fit this version of Batman much more than a jacked-up sports car would.

Agreed, it just seems perfect.
#146 Posted by TheFallenDemon (13932 posts) -

While I'll always maintain that The Animated Series had the perfect Batmobile, only the Tumbler would mesh in with Nolan's version of Batman without feeling real out of place.

I agree with this statement but only because Nolan's universe is based on complete realism unlike the rest of the Batman films that focus more on combining silliness and seriousness.
