Re: Stuff you like to believe happened in Nolan's series
Despite the many things I like to believe happened in the trilogy, I understand why it was made the way it was.
the beginning - origin, Ra's as first villain, theme of fear
Batman defeats indifference and corruption
the middle - climax, Joker as most integral villain, theme of chaos
Batman defeats organized crime and psychopathy
the end - conclusion, Bane as final villain, theme of pain
Batman defeats extortion and terrorism
I like to believe many things happen behind the scenes of the films and in between the films themselves, but in showing us a trilogy of The Dark Knight's story. I think Nolan did things exactly the way he should have.
The public likes you, Bernie. That's the only reason this might fly. But that means it's on you. They're all coming after you now. Not just the banks: politicians, journalists, cops. Anyone whose wallet's about to get lighter. Are you up to it?
