Darth_Lukecash: My only complaint was showing Batman in the cockpit, right before the explosion. Had they just omitted that then it would have been reasonable to think that he ejected way before the explosion.


Superman saved him. At the end of Man of Steel, there's gonna be a scene after the credits. Superman is going to be in a mortal situation, Kryptonite maybe, and someone is going to save him. A shadow figure. A voice that says "We're even."

That's how the DCMovie Universe starts

Darth_Lukecash:

All I know is that I haven't seen a bad film from him yet. They have been good, solid films. Some of them have been downright fantastic like "The Prestige" I think you saw a bit of his fascination of Howard Hughes with Bruce Wayne.


Yea, I agree. He's one of the few directors that I will go see just because his name is attached. I own them all and it always amazes me how many people have never seen The Prestige. I've loaned that movie out to so many people who've came back and told me that they loved it and didn't know how they had missed it. And Bowie gives one hell of a performance. The first time I saw it I saw his name on the credit roll, did a double take and watched it again. That flick made me really read into Tesla after I watched it and I would love to see a movie about Tesla/Edison that was in the right hands. I seem to recall they were doing one but I can't remember.


I think the only thing I can complain about was that he did pull a cinematic "cheat" Otherwise, I look at it as an "Alternate Timeline" Batman. The Dark Knight Rises was Nolanverse version of Millers Dark Knight Returns. Except unlike Millers version, things didn't get obviously worse, but subtly worse. At least Nolan Batman could look out and honestly thing that crime was down and evil was contained.

Yup. I've always maintained that I've always taken the trilogy as just like a graphic novel, in the sense that it was just another authors take on an established property. That's why I never cared about all the issues people had with it not following canon. Some of the best stories about established characters were stand alone (Red Son comes to mind).

And TDKR is really a better flick the second time you see it. I still had a few minor gripes (wish Bane would have been more used but I realize the movie was more about closure with Bruce) but still loved it. I just couldn't shake the feeling while watching it that the movie would have been a lot different had Ledger not died. But I still maintain that it is my favorite trilogy.

Darth_Lukecash: ArkAngel: Took six and a half weeks.

Avengers did it in 19 days

Avengers didn't have a massive shoot out at it's opening weekend.

Avengers also had inflated 3D ticket prices.

They were both great movies and I loved them both

And I just bit on a troll bait, didn't I?


The Avengers had a much wider audience than DKR and is more prone to repeat business because it's lighter and more kid friendly. DKR was never going to make as much as The Avengers.

alwaysjaded: Darth_Lukecash: I liked it a lot. It Acheived this without a 3D ticket price.

Of couse, it wasnt as good as the Dark Knight. But it was a good eding to a great trillogy.

About the same way I felt. I knew there was no way it would have been good as The Dark Knight but a very satisfying conclusion (minus a gripe here and there).

Now I'm curious to know what is Nolan's next project. Rumor is the next one will be something new or a movie about Howard Hughes. I read some article that Nolan wanted to direct the Aviator but lost it to Scorsese. So now he wants to do one about Hughes life, beginning with when he started going crazy.


Would be great if he can get DiCaprio for that role.

Shouldn't Superman have tried to save Gotham from the terrorists instead of just saving Batman at the end? I know he's a dick and all, but still.
