Okay, THIS DOES NOT EXIST ALREADY
FOR SHAME BEAST'S LAIR
FOR SHAME

The all-consuming franchise CANNOT be contained to just the DC thread.
So yeah, discussion of TAS, ...those other B-man cartoons =_=, Burton movies, Nolan movies, comics, parodies etc etc should go here (If anyone still wants to jizz about the games that should go in Animu/Gaems)


Also, I realize that it is still 2 months away, but the lack of updates in regards to MOTHER F*CKING HIGHLIGHT OF THE YEAR is unforgivable.

JULY 20TH

Beyond wasn't as quite as good as TAS in my book, but I still really liked it. Enjoyed Brave and the Bold, too, on account of how awesomely silly it was. Dat camp, man, hnnnng. I'm not aware of any other Batman cartoons, outside of the odd Batman-centric episode of JL/JLU. ಠ_ಠ

The Batman was not bad, I liked it enough to at least watch a few episodes of it. The only thing I really did not like about it was Barbara becoming Batgirl before Dick becoming Robin. It disrupts the natural order of the Batfamily continuum! It's like saying the first child was born after the second child! @[email protected]

It's a shame that Heath Ledger's gone, I really think The Joker should have been the "Final Boss" of the movies, but Bane's not bad either, but, since this is the last movie anyway, does anyone think we'll see Bane breaking Batman's back?

lilithsama
May 15th, 2012, 01:26 PM
Possibly (http://www.cracked.com/blog/advanced-batman-theory-why-nolan-will-kill-bruce-wayne/)

and while Joker is way more chaotic and Batman's perfect foil/enemy, using Bane seems like a pretty damn good way to end it
Dude is not the f*cking beefed out mindless brute some movie portrayed him as, he's INCREDIBLY intelligent and strong as shit on his own
Like, he's not only one of those calculating, cool criminal masterminds, but hes also a huge force, like he really doesn't need any henchmen since he can pretty much take care of most of that stuff himself
you can't end Bruce Wayne's arc with the Joker the same way, since you can't really end the story with him loose. While Bane is still very dangerous, he lacks the same mental instability, so loosing him isn't quite as dangerous a threat.. well depending on how the the movie handles it. Typically he's more goal-oriented, so if his aim is to "break the bat" after hes accomplished that, he'll most likely move on, might not even be in Gotham anymore. Although, since it appears Batman's been gone quite a while in DKR, I can't really tell whether hes just trying to cause chaos or destroy Gotham, or whether hes just trying to draw out Batman. Well, eh, either way SHIT IS GOING DOWN.

Also, Alfred's speeches in the newest trailer, well and older trailers, makes me think they prolly won't kill Bruce Wayne (like that article is suggesting). Emphasis on him not wanting to bury any more friends/Waynes would make it kinda shitty if they did kill him off. Although I'm pretty f*cking positive he at least won't be Batman anymore. Also am thinking JGL will prolly be the one taking up the mantle, given how he's emphasized in the trailer, and what his role seems to be. Well, really this is all my opinion, so don't take it for hardcore facts or anything. Just if it does work out that way, I am so going to be yelling I TOLD YOU!!

bane's not dumb but I wouldn't call him intelligent. now cunning i'll give you in spades.

if they are rolling with bane entering the fray they might do THAT storyline which would be a terrible way to end it.

they shouldn't recast, since the story is 8 years later, the Joker's arc has ended, and any attempt to follow up with him would just fall flat

and, granted Bane does not have the same intelligence as, say, the Riddler, he is , in CANON, a f*cking genius. Hell he figure out Batman's identity in pretty much his first appearance. The man has photographics memory, studied the sh*t out of everything when he was in prison, is a f*cking insanely aweseom strategist, and of course a fantastic escape artist.
and this combined with NATURAL strength, plus adding Venom to that
again, SHIT IS GOING DOWN

Bane is highly intelligent; in Bane of the Demon, Ra's al Ghul (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ra%27s_al_Ghul) says that Bane "has a mind equal to the greatest he has known."[8] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bane_%28comics%29#cite_note-Demon-7) In prison, he taught himself various scientific disciplines equal to the level of understanding of leading experts in those fields.[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bane_%28comics%29#cite_note-Broken-3) He knows six active languages and at least two additional arcane and dead ones (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Language_death). Among these are Spanish, English, Urdu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urdu), Argh, Persian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persian_language), and Latin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin).[8] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bane_%28comics%29#cite_note-Demon-7)[41] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bane_%28comics%29#cite_note-40) The Bane of the Demon storyline reveals that he has a photographic memory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eidetic_memory). Within one year, he is able to deduce Batman's secret identity (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secret_identity).[8] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bane_%28comics%29#cite_note-Demon-7)

But wikipedia says it's true, and it has citations. What do you have? D:

lilithsama
May 15th, 2012, 02:52 PM
not just wiki, other sources too, like sites run/edited by hardcore DC fans, and if you actually take the time to read them, its immediately apparent once you start reading the comics
Bane, THROUGHOUT THE CANON, is a fucking mastermind/genius

Chaos Greyblood
May 15th, 2012, 03:00 PM
So, anyone wish to share which are your best comic book sagas in here?

Also, I have to agree on the assestments of Bane here. In Knightfall, Bane figured that the best way to deal with the Bat is to have him in a sequential boss rush by bursting Arkham Asylum and freeing all of the inmates that Batman had caught prior to the saga (No, seriously. He bursted the asylum with some heavy firepower!). He then sliently watched and tried to make a mess of things here and there, fought against Killer Croc, who did put a good fight against him, figured out Batman's identity and then defeated him. So yeah, Bane shouldn't be underestimated. EVER. On ocassion, writers try to flip-flop when it comes to his intelligence and him depending on Venom, but it is canon that he weaned himself off of Venom because it would seriously cripple his life if he kept on using him and that he's one of the most cunning foes on the rouge's gallery who manages to combine brains and brawn.

That, and he considers Batman to be a worthy foe. He'd rank pretty high on a top 10 Batman villains list if I ever made one.

lilithsama
May 15th, 2012, 05:50 PM
this has nothing to do with citations, this has to do with IN COMIC CANON, hell he is even INTRODUCED as such
and yeah, while other characters are "more intelligent" does not mean he isn't a genius. The riddler's main weapon is his intelligence and wit, Bane doesn't have to solely rely on that, so its not as necessary to emphasize his intelligect to the same degree.
Barbara, The Riddler, and Mr. Freeze THE FUCKING SCIENTIST/DOCTOR, are supposed to seem more intelligent because thats a huge part of the character/their main "weapons." Bane grew up in a f*cking prison, and was pretty much self-educated, so yes compared to a fucking scientist or doctor hes not going to seem as intelligent. But again, HE DOESN'T NEED TO SOLELY RELY ON THAT. He crafts plans that make use of his strength, not just his wit. And really it'd be dumb to to otherwise, since he's F*CKING STRONG AS SHIT

also, IN HIS FIRST APPEARANCE, he deduced Batman's secret identity after being in Gotham for a few months, WHEN NATIVE RESIDENTS COULDN'T. Pretty sure in the Batman-universe that makes you pretty goddamn smart. Hell, the only other person I can think that did that was Strange, and that was because Batman/Wayne came to his f*cking clinic (at least originally, later he was just more of a mind assassin).

lantzblades

this alone makes it impossible for him to be a genius. I give him credit but you go too far. Bane is cunning, not a genius. that's why he could figure it out.

What is your favorite moment that proves that Bane is equipped with a superior intellect?
When he identifies Bruce Wayne as Batman just from Wayne’s body language.
From Chuck Dixon (http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/nailbiter111/news/?a=57183), who's basically saying that yeah, thats why he's a fucking genius




also, a bit more in depth (http://www.nbcwashington.com/blogs/popcornbiz/Who-is-Batmans-Dark-Knight-Rises-Enemy-Bane-We-Ask-the-Guy-Who-Created-Him-114523229.html)

“The parameters for him had to be that he must be the intellectual and physical equal of Batman, that it would be believable that he could beat Batman and injure him badly enough to put him out of action for a year,” he says. “He is in every way a self-made man, just as Bruce Wayne made himself into Batman. Bane made himself into Bane, but with much darker purposes.”

so yeah, he WAS CREATED TO BE A F*CKING INTELLECTUAL MATCH FOR BATMAN, who you yourself said was a genius


and really, its not like they have dropped the whole "he's intelligent" thing, hell he was even a political force in his country for a time

On topic: BBatB was a callback to the Silver Age of DC, back when things were wacky as shit. It was a bit refreshing to see many of the lesser known heroes (Booster Gold!). But, as usual, BTAS will remain one of DC's best animated series. Has anyone noticed that while Marvel makes the more successful movies overall, DC makes the more successful cartoons?

lilithsama
May 16th, 2012, 03:36 AM
Well, Marvel as a whole has successful movies, ..well mainly cus they get good writers/directors/actors attached, and don't HORRENDOUSLY miscast
DC just can't really get there shit together outside Batman
although really, Batman has been the most successful superhero franchise/films, so while Marvel might have greater success overall, Batman is still stronger
although everything else DC (outside of Reeves Superman) pretty much tanks
mainly cus nobody really knows what they're doing =_=
UNLIKE the cartoons, where the reverse is true
although I will give 90s Marvel credit, at least for X-men, and maybe Spiderman, although I can only rewatch some of the former now, unlike DC animated which has SO MUCH staying power

I don't know how, but as a kid I never noticed that Hobgoblin in the Spiderman cartoon was voiced by Mark Hamill essentially just doing his Joker voice, despite also being an avid watcher of BTAS.

I recognized his voice almost immediately when he was cast as The Hobgoblin. He also did a few villain roles in videogames and he was freaking Ozai!

Hamill should definitely become a voice director or something. I'm sure he'll be able to teach some new guys how to be a true villain.

They ... did experiment.

If you hadn't seen Batman Beyond, you would have had the strong impression that they eventually got together, because they were so ... into each other.

Batman sang the Blues to save her, mayn!

In fact, that's one thing that bugged me.

Throughout JL and JLU, we see Batman become a warmer and more open person as he becomes closer and closer to his friends. But then, in Batman Beyond, he's completely closed in on himself again. Probably because of Tim.

Damnit, I had hoped Bruce (stubborn ass that he is) would get a happy ending. I like to imagine Wonder Woman is raising their child alone on Themyscira.

LEAVE ME ALONE, THEY WERE BEAUTIFUL

He got a happy ending... Sorta-kinda.

I mean he did grow up to be a "get out of my lawn" kind of person but he got better. Also he got another Batman, so that counts. I think.

lilithsama
May 17th, 2012, 03:15 AM
I honestly feel like it would be incredibly odd/unnatural for Bruce to get a "happy" end
not to say he should live his life in misery, just having him actually settle down, or start a happy family seems like something thats always going to be beyond his reach
he knows he has more important things to do, and pretty much gave that up the moment he took up the mantle, thats not to say he shouldn't ever get a family/son, just, its not going turn out all peaches and sunshine (see Damian Wayne)

I just don't think having him end up in a serious/committed relationship would fit well, with the story or his character, just having him continue to serve as that rogue mentor figure (like in Beyond) I think is the best way for Bruce to end up, or like, his real "happy end"

Theocrass

Oh yeah, don't get me wrong, I don't see him with the white picket fence and shit.

lilithsama
May 17th, 2012, 03:22 AM
yeah, but its not going to happen, no matter how much others want it, or really it kind of ties back to Alfred's want for him to just live a regular life/give up the dangers involved in being Batman
although, he and Bruce know thats impossible

You guys realize that Bruce's obsession with being Batman isn't healthy?

And it's probably not what his parents wanted, either.

Not trying to say I don't like him as Batman (because I do), I just don't think there's anything wrong with exploring story lines where he gives it up or mellows out.

Has anyone ever written a story where Bruce tried living a normal life?

lilithsama
May 17th, 2012, 03:44 AM
yeah. its extremely unhealthy, thats kind of the point of the (gritty) character, is you have this pretty much deranged man running around in a batsuit beating the shit out of criminals, like hes let his obsession with "protecting the city" take over his life
which is why alfred/etc would rather he quit, but given how deep in he is, he's not going to be able to, or at least not easily

also I think TAS handled the idea of Bruce with a "normal life" quite well, although it still ended up rather sad, but at least gave him a bit of purpose/conviction

See One More Day.

So I'm neither a particularly dedicated nor long-term comic book reader... but the One More Day/Brand New Day Spider-Man reboot was the biggest narrative bullshit I've ever had the displeasure of suffering through. Obviously profit-driven, it turned Spider-Man/Peter Parker's story from one with intense character development and complex interpersonal relationships across different series... into a Saturday morning cartoon.

It's solely because of this that I stopped reading comic books completely shortly after I stuck around for the conclusion of Dark Reign/Siege. Seriously... fuck that shit.

I can understand from a writer's perspective how you can write yourself into corners when you've got a continuity running for forty years... but I think anyone with a shred of talent could have come up with a better and more logical conclusion than that.

Not to mention that Joe Quesada and his eschewed views about marriage pretty much run the show. Stan Lee was so disgusted that he completely disregarded the decision and so Peter and MJ stay married in his newspaper comic.

It's not hard to see that they'd want to bring some of Amazing Spider-Man closer back to how it used to be (like before he got a power upgrade and organic web shooters, the latter of which I'm fine with) but it seemed like such a waste to suddenly pretend all of his relationships that had been built up over years suddenly never existed.

It also just played hell with the story, because Civil War crossed over into nearly every storyline, and Spider-Man unmasking and joining Iron Man (his aniki~) was such a critical and poignant moment in the arc. The reboot would break so many things that writers would have no choice but to either write bad, forced retcons or avoid the issue altogether (meaning: never bring up Spidey's identity again, and have him crack jokes all the time. Now everything is A-OK!)

And what's this about Quesada and his views on marriage?

especially Wonder Woman, since shes from the Amazons

Chaos Greyblood

Catwoman may have some privilieges, but she's definitely not pampered. I once read a MGS3 fanfic about the ending of the game that featured Big Boss and the line where he said that 'EVA may have had my body, but you (The Boss) will always have my soul)." I think that applies what I just said about Bruce, Selina and Talia.

Yeah, a lot of Batman and other comic book writers will speak freely about how the Animated series is the definitive Batman.

The coolest thing about Mr. Freeze is they took someone who had become a gag character and made him interesting, gave him a very valid motive, and utterly heartbreaking in the process.

Then "Batman and Robin" came out and was an utter train wreck with nipples on the batsuits.

So much that they actually reworked Mr. Freeze's origin completely after they realized that there is really a lot of depth in his character and went with it from here. Hell, his debut episode even won a freaking Emmy! And his end in Batman Beyond was also rather sympathetic. He really is the coldest killer of them all, though.

And well, all those crazy puns by Arnie kinda reminded me of the 1960s show, which is why in a way it's always good for a laugh. XDDDDD

Also, I think I'm gonna totally come across as a pervy-perv here, but this is only one of the very few things why I'd stick around Batman and Robin long enough.

Damn me to Hell and back, Alicia Silverstone's crotch was hawt and lovely! She had a cute butt too, even though a few people thought she had a bit of weight in there. I'd rather see that than the Bat-nipples, damn me! Oddly enough, there were definitely no bat-nipples on the Batgirl suit because of double standards and crap like that. The other reason was seeing Uma Thurman looking sexy on that green spandex suit during Mr. Freeze's escape from Arkham scene.

Come to think of it, doesn't it strike any of you as rather... eerie that Alfred already had Barbara's right measurements for her suit, even though that's a fascimile on the Bat-computer? And yes, I'm aware he had done the suits for Bruce and Dick here. :P

After digesting this movie for a day, as I saw it yesterday, my feeling is thus:

Why didn't they just name the guy Tim Drake instead of John Blake? Or even Terry McGiness?

Otherwise, I very much enjoyed it. Although, truth be told, because of the feel of it and the pacing, I have the sneaking suspicion I won't rewatch it multiple times like I have TDK.

Except with how they actually addressed him, it really wouldn't. You hear "Blake" all of once or twice early on, otherwise he pretty much goes unnamed or keeps getting called by his title. I think it would've worked out as a better nod, especially because of the detective work he does.

I saw this. I must say it lived up to the hype and I was satisfied with the ending.



Comissioner Gordon was a boss. Blake was quite likeable, especially with that ending scene where Blake - as "Robin" - is pretty much going to become "Nightwing" .

Bummed about Ledger's death because a Joker cameo (at the very least, but in the original script he would have?????) would have made the movie even betterer.

And ohhh man Bane's theme played in every other scene he was in and it never got old for me. Hans Zimmer, you music all sounds alike but it's still sooo goood. Interesting choice for his voice, but I think it helped the role rather than hindered. The jumping scene where Bruce escaped the prison was, I thought, particularly poignant.

Everyone in the theater started laughing like crazy when Batman started yelling "WHERE IS ______ ?!" Some people seem to have appreciated the ascended meme.

Baaaatplaaaaane. Tumbler-jacking. Selina Kyle on the cycle.

THE TWIST ZOMG Ra's al Ghul's daughter I completely forgot about her from the comics hooooooly

Anne Hathaway is hothothothot already, so since she nailed Catwoman I was pleasantly charmed. Batman x Catwoman is the way you leave Batman. Yes. Yes.



tl;dr IRUn loved the movie. Not as much as Dark Knight, but it was still solid, solid, solid 99.9999999%. Immensely satisfying.

They didn't even show the trailer once for me, all I got was Superman, The Expendables 2.
Same here, I remember when I was like 9, my brother read the entire Hobbit/LoTR to me. I was quite the feat. I'm more excited for this mainly cause when Lotr came out, I was like 8 or something. Im pretty pumped for it.

I get what you mean about DK having something that DKR doesn't. Its hard to explain, It may be Joker's unique way of messing with the Batman, but overall I DKR was better,the ending especially, wow. I kinda want them to do a JGL spin-off.

mighta been another one in there but meh

and I think RIses did a better job of tying everything togehter
except the joker
out of all the loose ends they adressed they left one of the most important out =_=
and yeah we know its cus of Ledger's death, but ehy should have adressed it somehow, or you know, at least mention it but no =_=

and from what i understand they are doing a reboot pretty damn soon (so they can tie it into the Justice League movie they wanna make =_=)
im just hoping to god JGL will have the sense to stay away from it
although given his acting choices i dont think i really need to worry about it

July 26th, 2012, 02:03 PM
I realize it was over, but originally it wasnt intended to be, Nolan didnt intend it to be and pretty much left DK open so he could finish it up in Rises
..like DK was just supposed to be a lead in, or like an "appetizer" for what was to come
whatd they do at the end? catch him? put him in jail? theyd already shown IN THE MOVIE that jail doesnt mean SHIT to him

hell this mother f*cker just busts out whenever the hell he wants, whether hes in arkham or prison, hes pretty much just there cus he wants to be and leaves whenever the hell he wants

even with all he did in DK i highly doubt he was or would be done

I noticed how Inception and The Batman trilogy share a lot of people. Hans Zimmer (amazing score), JGL, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, The chick who plays Dicaprio's wife. I guess he likes those people?

At first, I thought that Bane was played by a buff Patrick Stewart.

True story.

This just in: theory totally works, since I realized that Tom Hardy (the actor who played Bane, of course) also played Shinzon, a Romulan clone of Picard in Star Trek: Nemesis.

Well he is Patrick Stewarts clone........(get it?)

Just saw the movie, it blew my mind, amazing, loved everyone in it, the thing with Blake at the end was so good. I pefered the Jokerover Bane, but overall I think DKR is slightly better overall. Can't wait tillthe three movie boxset comes out. Now the movie I am looking forward to is The Hobbit.

Yaaaah two more hours and then after that I can come back and click through all the spoiler boxes I'm sure this topic is filled with.

Waited a bit too long to buy my ticket, though, so I'm practically making out with the screen haha.

Oooohhhh maaaan that ending

Totally saw "the child" being Talia and Bane being the Bane-sized guy whose face they wouldn't show as soon as they let it slip that it was Ra's Al Ghul's kid, but I slipped up and got surprised by Talia being the boring Not-Catwoman love interest. I suppose they were dropping hints when they were talking about her past in bed, but they were pretty lightweight.

Also, she wasn't hot enough to be Talia. D:

BUT SERIOUSLY GUYS, THAT ENDING, THAT EVERYTHING

I have a hard-on for Cillian Murphy in those glasses. Especially when he speaks with his true accent!

And dear god that movie was love. It beat "The Avengers", and I would pretty much suck Joss Whedon's cock if it was presented to me in gratitude for everything he has done. However this time, Nolan beat him.

Whedon-Batman

i would pay GOBS to see that

...as long as it didnt get raped like Resurrection did =_=

and Nolan has stated in interview(s) that he LUVS Murhpy's eyes
hell he almost got the role of Batman before Bale came along, but Nolan liked him so much he made him Scarecrow
..and loves his eyes so much he has him take off his glasses as much as possible

Honestly I would too. Also, did you know that Whedon also threw a pitch for a Batman movie before Nolan got the job? However DC contacted him about the Wonder Woman movie instead, but Whedon didn't like WW.

And after "The Avengers" I think no one is going to fuck with Whedon's scripts again. (The original script to "Resurrection" was rather bad assed.)

Murphy's eyes are rather beautiful. Just such an intense shade of blue.

. . . I'm rather glad that Bale got the role of Batman over Murphy.

and meh bruce/b-man eyes depend on the canon, like theyve been brown afore

If Harry Potter's eyes can be blue, Bruce Wayne's eyes can be whatever color the hell he wants, because he's the goddamn Batman.

In the Animated Series before the redesign, they were brown. Then he was redesigned with icy blue eyes.

Honestly, I'd rather have Bruce have brown eyes. Makes him look different than Clark.

Yeah, I couldn't see Cillian Murphy as Bruce Wayne, and I really couldn't see him as Batman. He lacks that sort of intensity, but he does villain quite well.


and yeah i think i heard that afore (about the Whedon batman)

There was an awesome issue of Wizard where Whedon wrote an article about why he loved Batman. Then he listed his favorite "Batman" movies. He talked about movies that weren't Batman movies, but were very close to what he would like to see in a Batman movie. It was quite interesting. And my love for Whedon grew even more when he waxed poetically about "Mask of the Phantasm".


although even with Avengers success I doubt that will stop studios from raping his scripts =_=

He's learned from that. He'll either go out and make movies on his own, like the upcoming "Much Ado About Nothing" which was pretty much filmed in his back yard with his actor friends, or make sure he can write and direct. However Whedon is at his best when he is writing and directing.

Nathan Fillion, the guy who played Simon (Sean Mehr), Wes (Alexis Denihof or Mr. Alyson Hannigan if you prefer) and Fred (Amy Acker) are in it as well. So basically he got all of his old TV buddies involved in sort of a reunion flick.

Just watched DKR today and..........have to say, I wasn't impressed. Probably the weakest of the trilogy.

Well, I finally watched it last week and I have to say I did like it a lot. Although I think which movie was better in the summer is up to debate because they're rathr close: Avergers or Dark Knight Rises.

I thikn that the movie itself was building up slowly in scale and turned into what you call an epic movie. Tom Hardy did a nice job as Bane or so I felt because he managed to look imposing with all that gear despite standing at 5'10", Gordon-Levitt also had a nice role and we hope to see more great roles for our esteemed Mr. Joseph. It was the end, but I believe it was a great ending.

And god, I have to admit Anne Hattaway did nicely as Catwoman. It seems as though she had come a long way in her career and I think she was actually one of the few Disney girls that turned out all right. Also, that glorious and lovely ass.... =3=

So, I watched Batman vs Robin.

Definitively better than Son of Batman, but it didn't make me like Damian, I still don't like him. Talon on the other hand was an interesting character.

The only things I didn't like is
Batman knocked out for not wearing a breather while walking around in the sewers... *facepalm*

Also the Court of Owls knows this much about Wayne, but not that he's Batman? Yet, it seemed like they knew.

This being said, it's difficult to think that the Court of Owls, which includes the wealthiest members of Gotham, didn't include the Waynes. Also we narrowly avoided Bruce to become The Owl-Man (damn flashbacks :p).
