You always seem more calm than a lot of users here (that's not to say that most people here sound angry or disrespectful).

If you think about it, we have had the exact same arguments since last July. Nothing has changed for the most part. People arguing about whether or not stuff got contradicted, the 8 year gap, how Bruce gets back to Gotham, the ending, the knee brace, John Blake, etc. That's probably why we feel so burned out by this point. Some of us even sound like we are going crazy at this point, and insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results AKA using the same arguments over and over again and expecting to win the debate this time .

At the same time though, there is nothing else to talk about which is why we keep resorting to the same arguments about the same movie over and over again. At least with the previous movies, we knew we would get a sequel and we would balance out the discussions about the latest Batman movie with speculation on the next movie, whatever the next movie was at the time. But in this case, we don't know in which direction Batman in live-action is going, whether or not it will be rebooted, or even how long it will be till the next Batman film comes so there is sadly nothing to talk about but TDKR. We are basically stuck in limbo. The TDKR debates will probably die down when Man of Steel comes out. I'm assuming it's going to get our minds off TDKR for a while.
I fully agree. Hopefully Man of Steel will be the perfect antidote to put the general DC film fanbase back on the same page and give Batman on film some breathing room in general.

That's the type of discussion I stick around for
