he started the fire makes me think of

RYAN STARTED THE FIRE!

man I miss season 2 office

I'd be lying if I said I didn't start immediately singing that in my head when I read your initial post. haha

I only watched 1 or 2 episodes after Steve Carell left. It was already going downhill before then so I just lost what little interest was left.

The 2 things I look forward to the most about this movie are how they will explain off the Joker (I trust Nolan that it won't be something stupid and trite) and the eventual Bane/Batman show down.

I'm caught up with show. I don't mind Ed Helms but I think it's time for the show to end. Pam is starting to annoy me.

Oh lord is it bad. I remember thinking last year that it couldn't get much worse. I was wrong. It's the worst season thus far in my opinion.

"You either die the hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villian." A good theme for the second movie, but also possibly for the trilogy.

thats a very great point you made there. totally forgot about that

I wish I had. I think there's only 2 episodes left for this season or something like that. After that, yeah I'm done. I'm hearing things like "reboot" for next year and that's more than enough.

jwicklun 05/02/12 08:50 PM

NBC just can't let the show die. I'm glad I'm missing this season.

Why thank you! I can't believe that in over 400 pages of chatting, no one had said that yet. I'm sure glad I could jump into a conversation with something relevant and new.

I'm betting that if Joker is mentioned at all, it'll probably be brief and not explain anything that happened with him after TDK. That being said, I hope I'm wrong, because closure on that would rule.

drudo182 05/03/12 08:41 AM

They could just have a line about how he's in Arkham locked away and that would be enough.

Yeah, there's that scene in the trailer where the inmate does a flip, could mention him around that scene.

Matt Chylak 05/03/12 01:34 PM

anyone else notice Batman holding a gun at the end of the trailer?

MovieManCorey 05/04/12 09:55 AM

Heard from a few inside sources that we'll get a Superman preview before this.

Nolessthanblink 05/04/12 10:38 AM

You think so?

Awesome. I can't wait to see Snyder's visuals. Even if the writing is bad (which it shouldn't be, since Snyder himself isn't writing), I'm betting the movie will at least look incredible.

I assume that's at Blackgate but Im sure they could work something in. Maybe like in the comics Bane will destroy Arkham and they move all of the prisoners to Blackgate but Joker dies in the distruction or something

:edit: Joker was in blackgate for awhile in the comics...I forgot. Who knows where they'll take it

Same. I was very disappointed.

Thomas Nassiff 05/05/12 01:56 PM

I watched the Avengers twice this weekend and both times the new Dark Knight trailer was at a least as good as the Avengers movie itself. And I really liked the movie.

I got no TDKR trailer at my showing. 2nd time I've gone to a movie to see a TDKR trailer (Sherlock Holmes 2) and not had it.

Theseventhson 05/05/12 02:53 PM

people are fucking up. im assuming you guys saw the movie on a digital projector and it aint hard to put the right trailers on a digital playlist.

thesinkingship 05/05/12 03:07 PM

What fucking theaters would dare use a digital projector? Blasphemy.

Theseventhson 05/05/12 03:29 PM

99% of them?

sweetforever 05/05/12 06:14 PM

Seeing the trailer played before The Avengers, just gave me chills and made me want to see this movie even more than before.

These aren't indie theaters...

Theseventhson 05/05/12 07:32 PM

Digital is a lot less to worry about/less work/doesn't get scratched. I do miss being a projectionist, though. Most fun job I ever had.

Seeing Avengers tomorrow... Hoping it has TDKR trailer on it! I hooked my cpu up to my tv (52") and blasted it through surround sound and it was great... Can't wait for it in theaters!

Hopefully you aren't one of the thousands of clowns that asks me to rewind film after any type of problem cause them to miss picture or audio for a portion of the movie

“There is a very meticulous and calculated way about Bane. There is a huge orchestration of organization to his ambition. He is also a physical threat to Batman. There is nothing vague about Bane. No jokes. He’s a very clean, clear villain.”
