Default Re: Skyfall vs. TDKR

Perhaps the older Batman comic took some hits from the Bond film you mention. I think the title was simply "Bane." It was released around the same time as the film Batman and Robin. There, Bane was given a connection to the Al Ghuls and had possession of a nuke.

I still wouldn't put the stuff you mentioned past Nolan. He is a Bond fan.

"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
