Bane is too small

Yeah, Bane is big in the comics, and if a comic came along that was supposedly in continuity and he was shrimpy, I might have beef. But this isn't in continuity with the comics. It's essentially an Elseworlds, and Elseworlds reinvent characters all the time. Both physically and various aspects of th...

Why is Nolan judged more strictly than new comic writers?

Epic127 wrote:The changes never affect the essence of the character. For example, Alfred is always the butler, the Joker is always a lunatic, the Riddler is always develish smart, and Bane is always a match for Batman both in strength and in wit.
FTFY.

Why is Nolan judged more strictly than new comic writers?

I think it has a lot to do with a few main things. A. These movies get out to a lot more people than any comic does. So it's somewhat natural (though still not necessarily logical) for comic book fans to want people to be getting the "real" character, rather than an interpretation that will possibly...

Matthew Mondine, Tom Conti, and Joey King join cast

Seems entirely possible to me that the ages are for actors but not anything strict as far as in-universe timeline goes. Hell, Ra's could have had a kid when he was 18, making him 28 and till "in his 20s" so it's not like it rules anything out.

Re: how to handle the venom

Man, I don't get why people have issues with Venom possibly appearing in TDKR. Couldn't it just be a high intensity steroid that promotes long term muscle growth rather than InstaMuscle? Honestly, Bruce is already almost in peak condition, Bane wouldn't be able to go much further than that without s...

Re: There will be a 3rd villain

Never said he wouldn't be. The topic is about a third villain. i disagree with the OP about it being a bigger villain than bane, but I think there's the good possibility of a third one. i don't think so....as Crazy Eight said, with 3 villains it will take too much time away with Bruce, as seen in T...

Re: There will be a 3rd villain

Yeah, if you take all the Rachel Dawes time from previous movies and attribute it to Selina Kyle then you've got a bit more space for a second/third villain. If Bane plays out anything like his first showing I think Scarecrow is likely to return as one of the numerous minor foes used to exhaust Bat...

Re: Plot of TDKR

If we do get Talia as the second actress then it would bring the League of Shadows thing full-circle, which is nice, but at the same time it's only one of many possibilities. I really think I'd prefer to see Bane just do the whole "take over the criminal scene, hastle Batman with psychos to wear him...

Re: Anne Hathaway as Selena Kyle, Hardy as Bane!

This is also one of the main reasons why I’m not that excited. :problem: You Nailed it. Lesser characters like The Joker, Scarecrow, and Two-Face? :| Poor example, since Scarecrow and Ra's hadn't been in modern films before and turned out fantastic. I initially wasn't jumping for joy with seeing th...
