I don't think that's a possibility

I think this would work. However, Joker referred to Batman breaking his one rule in TDK, which kind of happened when he pushed Harvey out of the building. I always thought that this movie would have a lot of Bruce still coping with "killing" Harvey.

This always confused me in TDK. When Batman and Joker are on the scaffolding and Batman throws Joker off and then catches him with his gizmo, the Joker teases him for not breaking his rule. In fact, his "rule" was a big part of TDK.

However, if we go back to BB, did he not "kill" Ra's Al Ghul? I mean he said "I'm not going to kill you, but I don't have to save you". Though I would say that he was ultimately responsible for his death. Did he not kill a whole temple full of League of Shadows' soldiers, including the person who he originally thought was Ra's?

He killed Harvey saving Gordon's family, though. Maybe that's a loophole?

Yeah, but in that regard, he could've killed Joker pretty early to save people. I think TDKR will focus a lot on his rule, regardless of whether or not he thinks he broke it.

NO ONE GO TO IMDB, THEY HAVE A LEAKED SCRIPT

10 "scripts" have leaked. Is it actually the real one?

I don't know, it just leaked this morning, but I don't want to check and accidentally come across a spoiler.

drudo182 05/02/12 11:34 AM

Anyone else think Bane's spinning punch is a little... odd?

In fairness, the League of Shadows deal was before he became Batman, so I'm assuming that's before he set his rule?

Also, in regards to the script, do you think it's legit? Part of me wants to look, but most of me wants the movie to be a surprise. Ugh!

donwagenblast 05/02/12 11:50 AM

I couldn't find it on imdb, is there a link?

I went to IMDB and I didn't see a script, so I am going to assume it someone pulling our leg.

I saw people posting about it this morning on IMDB but haven't checked since out of fear i'll come across a spoiler.

Nolessthanblink 05/02/12 12:22 PM

Ok... I would be pretty surprised if it leaked now. Nolan's probably got that thing locked in a safe somewhere. haha. I don't see it leaking anytime soon, if at all before the release date

i like apples 05/02/12 04:29 PM

No one that leaked script is real.

thesinkingship 05/02/12 05:06 PM

Damn, some people in this thread need to brush up on their Batman mythology.

DrStrong 05/02/12 05:13 PM

I wonder if Batman will actually kill someone in this movie.

he started the fire makes me think of

RYAN STARTED THE FIRE!

man I miss season 2 office

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.

bobcatbob18 05/02/12 08:14 PM

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?

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

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.
