Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman

Well in the comic books if I recall, during the first story arc of the first ongoing Catwoman series, Selina is
forced to work for Bane while he runs the city during the Knightfall arc before betraying him, so I'm not surprised to see Nolan use some of it here.

[SPOILERS] TDKR Plot Speculation

Bruce Wayne "dead"? How they, Bruce & Alfred, can handle forever with that. I don´t think this part is true. Really. I don't think what happens afterward matters much. If this is true, I think that Bruce will most certainly die, and I think the part with Batman showing up at the end is supposed to ...

Am I pronouncing that right?

'Raysh' is a very popular but inaccurate pronunciation that was introduced through Batman: The Animated Series via Denny O'Neil, who is the creator of the character. He claims he had his daughter check with the UCLA Language Department after spending years without any knowledge of how to say it. Unf...

[SPOILERS] TDKR Plot Speculation

Just found this really interesting comment on SHH. It may hold weight in regards to Nolan's influence: That's brilliant. There's also a fight scene in that series between Batman and the villain in a sewer, and scenes that involve the assassination of Gotham's politicians, which may be relevant if t...

[SPOILERS] TDKR Plot Speculation

the mayor dies in the football stadium....i think its safe to assume that happens before that car pile up Nolan doesn't use one single comic or explicitly copy scenes, but he is clearly influenced by them. Also, in Miller's The Dark Knight Returns , the Mayor is brutally murdered by the Mutant Lead...

[SPOILERS] TDKR Plot Speculation

I just wonder how Catwoman comes in to all this? Maybe while Bruce/Batman are away, she emerges in Gotham. She'll probably be an ally, Batman will have his hands full with Bane. Since many of the film's plot details that have come out seem to mirror Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns , I wouldn...

Where do you Stand on the Batman Villains? (Poll)

Catwoman is not a villain. neither was two face I think what Allstar may be alluding to is Catwoman's comic book history. For the first forty years she was portrayed as a villain, however for the last thirty-plus years she has been written as either a straight-forward crimefighter or as an anti-her...

[SPOILERS] TDKR Plot Speculation

"There's only so much that one man can do. But throughout history, there have been figures who became rallying points for men of good will everywhere. King Arthur... Robin Hood... The Scarlet Pimpernel... Maybe that's the answer. Maybe I've got to become more than a man... I've got to become a symbo...

TDKR "Hans Zimmer" Soundtrack

I assume you guys haven't noticed Harvey Dent's theme is a variation of a theme from Begins. I was just about to post that. I was thinking of the scenes where Bruce pulls Ducard up over the cliff or when Bruce gets ready to follow Rachel to Arkham and you see the shot of the Batsuit. I'm most inter...

Batman Comics!

As someone else stated here: The Untold Legend of Batman brings back memories as well. I still have my graphic novel. :tooexcited: Yes, a great tribute to the then-forty year history of The Batman. Len Wein did a lot for the Batman mythos with not only this story, but also by introducing recurring ...
