@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:35 PM)

Can't forget what you didn't know in the first place.

@  Patch : (27 June 2020 - 05:28 PM)

Ah yes, Overpower. Who could forget the expansion where they added a new stat and you had to re-collect your heroes all over again.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 June 2020 - 04:20 PM)

Counterpoint, when was the last time you spent money on Overpower?

I like the title, it's simple and if Nolan has a specific theme in mind to conclude a character arc for Bruce then it fits as well. As soon as I read it this morning I thought that this probably implies to Bruce rising out of the darkness he was in at the end of the last movie. There is heavy speculation that Talia is the female lead that Nolan is busy casting at the moment. I'd love if Hugo Strange were included, I could see Tom Hardy playing a creepy/intellectual version of the psychiatrist, perhaps a cross between his Eames character from "Inception" and an intellectual.

Bane would be a fittingly ironic choice of villain, given the title of the film. He could use Azrael too, since he doesn't have "powers" per se (retcons notwithstanding) and fits well into a Bane story, as does Talia.

Ooh, Azrael might be good, and could totally work in the "realistic" universe Nolan's set up: group of religious uber-zealots have been training a weapon to combat, say, the League of Shadows: that weapon is Azrael and his target is Talia Head. Tom Hardy as Jean-Paul Valley, Milla Jovovich as Talia.

Emily Blunt would be my personal choice for Talia. I think she'll be young. The novelization mentioned her as attending University or something and was in correspondence with Ra's who was writing her about Bruce. It was rumored a few months ago that Blunt was being considered for Catwoman but those were proven false.

Ideally, I'd like Scarecrow to be back. Larger roll than The Dark Knight, but maybe not as big as Batman Begins. And then plant some hints that in this universe, he, as opposed to the Joker, would be Batman's main rival throughout their lives.

As for actual villain, with both Penguin and Riddler shot down, I can't see myself caring all that much for them.

As fang said:

Nothing is stopping Edward Nigma from being in the movie.

He could be a forensic detective that ends up going mad at the end of the movie as he's trying to track down the same villain that Batman is tracking down.

So at that point I'd have to ask, why would we want that? Assuming there's a vanishingly small chance of another Batman after this, at least with Nolan at the helm, why would we want the move to waste time on setting up a character that will never be realized?

I think the second movie did it perfectly well.

It set up Two Face and wrapped up his story in one nice, neat package. The second movie is effectively two movies intertwined.

I'm a huge Black Mask fan...I don't know why really, I just really love the guy...both of them...and while I don't think that Mask would be in the movie he's a possibility because of his mob role. With the decimation of the mob in "The Dark Knight" and their leadership being broken someone like him or the Penguin could step in and take control. I really do think we'll see Taila attempt to avenge her father while romancing Bruce, after all as Ra's told Bruce in the first movie "Ra's al Ghul used theatrics and deception as weapons as does his...daughter." (that is how I'd reveal her identity to Bruce.

For me I'd love to see Black Mask in the Mobster role. While Bats is trying to stop him (and step out of the wanted list that ended the 2nd film and the title hints at), I'd like to see the Riddler legitimately trying to figure out who he is but becoming more and more obsessed with it.

For the hired muscle or fight scenes we'd need I'd love Killer croc. He can be done realistically. He's a guy with a skin condition.

As much as it would be visually interesting to see Killer Croc in "The Dark Knight Rises" I really don't think that type of character is interesting to Nolan or fits into his Gotham City, even an reimagined Croc. I think that we can cross off all the more elaborate and over the top rouges like Mr. Freeze, etc. I think that Nolan already has a clear mind of the type of story that he wants to tell, this is one of the reasons why it's taken this long for things to get going on the project because he needed a break (reports from the previous production and even on Inception are that he has really intense shoots and gets stressed out) and required time to figure out a story that would be interesting. He stated after "The Dark Knight" came out that if they were to do the third film that they would not set out to top it.

The fact that we're going to be getting major "Dark Knight Rises" and "Superman" news over the next few months as we head into production for both movies has me salivating. 2012 is definitely going to be the year of the comic book film!!
