Default Re: Skyfall vs. TDKR

I just posted this in the Misc. part of the forums, my intent is not to criticize but just to point out that Movie series like Batman and Bond can make references to each other from time to time, take this example. It seems that an integral part of The Dark Knight Rises plot is lifted from The World Is Not Enough, only with three times the characters, three times the stuff going, etc.

SPOILERS FOR BOTH MOVIES

In both movies we have this villian, a bald guy, with a pain related injury (Bane in constant pain keep at bay with his mask and Renard with a bullet in his head that prevents him from feeling a thing) who seems ruthless and unstoppable. Only to find out later on that said baddie is doing everything for a female that is the actual mastermind behind the curtains (Talia in TDKR and Elektra in TWINE). Said female serves as a love interest for the hero and takes advantage of the trust and affair with the hero only to betray him later on and expose her plan to him.

Both movies involve the detonation of a nuclear device that would destroy a City (Gotham and Istanbul). And finally, this is probably pushing it but in both movies the hero sustains injuries from the beginig through out the end of the films (Batman and his crippled leg, Bond and his injured shoulder).
