These are all good starting points, but The Long Halloween is the only really long book, so it's much better for travelling/holidays.

And A Death in the Family is actually a pretty below-average book. It's only really remembered for the death of Jason Todd rather than the actual story. Some really stupid shit happens in it.

You could always go non-Batman. All-Star Superman is a really, really good book and is also pretty long, then there's Watchmen which is pretty much a must-have for anyone wanting to see what comic books are capable of and is around the same length as The Long Halloween. Oh, and V for Vendetta kicks a lot of ass too.

I just saw The Dark Knight Rises for the third time, this time in IMAX. Dear god, the term "Larger Than Life" has itself a new represenitive.
Spoiler: show
I know this film is something special, becuase even seeing it for the third time, I still cringed at seeing Batman brutally get his ass handed to him in "Round 1", I still got choked up when Alfred was crying, and I still got goosebumps when Blake found the Batcave.

I've seen it twice, once in 2d and the second time in 3d.
I found it incredible. A perfect end to a perfect trilogy.
Spoiler: show
Bane was better than Heath Ledger's Joker, he was just so menacing as a leader and I actually liked his badass voice. Seeing Batman getting his ass kicked in round one was easily the best bit of the movie. Talia was great. John Blake was great. Hathaway did surprisingly good as Catwoman. Michael Caine was also great, and seeing Alfred cry was just so sad. ;o

Onto the topic of the Justice League movie, I find it absolutely ridiculous. The only reason they're making this movie is to tie with The Avengers. Especially how they're aiming it for a 2015 release. They'll have to make a Wonder Woman movie, a Flash movie, another Batman reboot and a possible Aquaman movie in the course of three years. This idea is just being rushed. :nono:

It wasn't in 3D, dude. :lol: As for the whole, "one was better than the other thing", Bane and the Joker are completley different villains. Both Hardy and Ledger perfected their roles for Nolan's films. I enjoyed Bane's lines jsut as much as Joker's lines.

I saw it last week, what a great final part for the trilogy!

It's good to see how Nolan kept his style and made the three movies fir together so well. I always prefered the first part (a bit), so I enjoyed the links to it in this movie. The fighting scenes were as great as the emotional ones. And Catwoman was just perfect.

Spoiler: show
And I really liked how they introduced Robin. It was no big suprise, but it worked great.
To be fair many things were no surprise.... but I did not expect the twist about Ra's al Ghul's daughter!


There is just one thing I really did not like, and that is Bane's voice. At first I thought it was a bad dubbing, but I don't even like his original voice. He sounds so artificial, even for wearing a mask.

No, I won't add more body shapes, band shirts or sports trikots. Really.

I thought his voice sounded a bit weird in his first scene, but I got used to it pretty quickly. He's definitely up there with the Joker in my opinion. It's not often i'm truly terrified by a movie villain.
...That was a lie.

Most definitley. Even his dialogue was as enjoyable to listen too as the Joker's.

So I saw The Dark Night Rises a few hours ago.
Spoiler: show
At first, I hated Banes voice, but then i realized that the less his voice fits him, the scarier he is. Also, I rarely show emotion, but when that kid was singing the national anthem, for some reason I started to tear up. I dont think ive ever hated a movie character as much as a hated Bane.


On an unrelated note, is it weird if i cant think of Bane without thinking of Maero from saints row 2?

great movie though, easily the best ive seen in a while.

Here's Kevin Smith talking about The Dark Knight Trilogy for about an hour and a half. It's exactly what it sounds like.

Great video, but it seems like the end missing. Is there a second part?

Not that I know of, no. I'm sure there's a longer version out there, somewhere.

Alright I'm sure many of you have heard about the massive news that Warner brothers is making a Superman/Batman movie I'm so excited but also nervous very much so. The quote they used was from Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" here is the quote "I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you". My issue is in that moment Bruce has defeated Clark as you can tell, :finger: I don't want to see a physical fight between the 2 giants I want to see a mental fight.
Spoiler: show
Clark did some thing that Bruce swore to never do Clark killed someone which I was fine with.
So I think a mental battle between them could be amazing and we could really deeply explore Clark's emotions about the final battle between him and Zod. Now my pick for Bruce/Batman is Magneto himself Michael Fassbender he is just a perfect actor to take reins from Bale. No.1 he's in the age range Clark is 33 in MOS and Fassbender is 36. Sorry this was so long leave me your options down below I'd love to talk about what everyone thinks. :)

Hey man, I've added spoiler tags to your post. In the future, just try and make sure you use them when talking about something like this.

That was one of my biggest gripes with The Avengers. I thought when everyone is calling each other names and generally getting not liking each other only to immediately come together right as the bad guys show up was completely unnecessary. A few years ago when all we had was the Nolan Batman movies, I would of stood out against a Superman & Batman movie, but after seeing Man of Steel and knowing that movie takes place in a universe outside of Nolan's universe, I'm all for it. People on the internet are saying they want Bale back, but again, it takes place in a different universe and it just wouldn't feel right. I'm hopeful that they'll cast a fairly unknown actor to take on the role of Batman, and that Batman is a Batman that already exists and doesn't require any kind of back story. I think it would be pretty cool to have some sort of Lex Luthor as, or running for President sort of thing that features corruption and all that sort of stuff that Batman will be able to expose and work with Superman to stop.

I have some casting news already.....Liam Mcintyre (Spartacus) has expressed interest in playing the new Bats by saying on twitter "Oh my god. So there's going to be a new Batman. It's time to dream big." I personally would be ok with this casting Liam is 32 so hes in the age range and I hear he was very good in the role. The website CosmicBookNews reports that Teen Wolf's Tyler Hoechlin is being heavily considered to dawn the cape and cowl. Ever since the news has gone viral. i have ssen Teen Wolf and i think Tyler has the look of Bruce, He also has those very mysterious eyes. Sound off your opinions down below

Has anyone seen 'The Dark Knight Returns: Part 1' movie? If so, is it worth the download? I'd like some opinions :)
What other animated Batman films would you recommend aswell?

The Dark Knight Returns: Part 1 and The Dark Knight Returns: Part 2 are fantastic. Batman: Year One is another really good one, and the best animated Batman movie is Batman: Mask of The Phantasm.

In some casting news "The Hollywood Reporter" is reporting that Josh Brolin (46) is the early front runner to wear the cape and cowl...the second name on the list is Ryan Gosling (32). I've realized that Josh Brolin is in the middle of a divorce with Diane Lane (Martha Kent in MOS). As always this is Josh keeping you filled in on the Batman news.
