You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

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!!
