Default What Happened to ... Wayne Enterprises, the Monorail

The monorail was noticably abscent in this film. It is a minor gripe, just wondering where it went or if it all got torn down? Also, Wayne Enterprises just magically in another building, without the signature logo? Was that because it got destroyed in BEGINS?

Minor thoughts I had seeing if anyone had any insight into them.

The monorail probably wasn't in the movie because it wasn't in the script to have any scenes take place on it. Probably for the same reason the Narrows were never mentioned.

I think you can see the monorail in one shot, maybe not though.

Yeah I think there is a shot where you can see it. Maybe in the prologue when Joker is standing outside the bank? I think thats where I saw it. It was in the distance.

A billionaire like Wayne probably has a dozen or so buildings in the city. Look at Trump. He's got quite a few buildings in NYC where business is conducted. Hell, a better comparison is Rockefeller and look at how many buildings bear his name. We just happened to see another one in TDK that wasn't featured in BB. As far as the monorail goes, its significance was in the first film. Like someone mentioned its briefly seen at one point.

The monorail IS in the movie. you can see it right after the scene with Bruce falling asleep at the meeting. Afterwards, you see a outside shot of Wayne Enterprise, and you can see the monorail on the left, and a train goes by.


By the way: I don't know if this has been said, I've only read the first page.

I didn't miss the monorail at all. What I did miss, however, was the Narrows. Notably Arkham Asylum. I was hoping for a scene at the end where they brought Joker to Arkham.

Ya during that monologue a quick shot of the joker in a orange jump suit in his cell all alone staring into the camera would have been absolutely blissfull and would definately have fit into that whole montage of shots.

That's why I asked opinions. I'm not putting anything down bro ... this movie was out of this world.

i was wondering what was up with the wayne building too. i just assumed it was another wayne building. and the monorail, they may have not rebuilt it. they could have torn it down. oh, actually i guess not, cuz it was included in the virals, right?

You can see the monorail in a set-up shot of Gotham...maybe even the same one with the new Wayne building.

I loathe the fake arse monorail and the fake arse Narrows. Those were cheesy as hell. And thank the Lord that little blonde kid wasn't back in the role of Tiny Tim.

Yeah, instead we get Coleman Reese, the man-child.

The children weren't as annoying in TDK. Reese was a cool idea. Kind of the nerd-opportunist.

Yeah, yeah... wait until the next movie.... then you'll say "OOOOOOOHhhhh... it all makes sense now!"
That whole part was a friggin' flat-out obvious origin story for one of Batman's other villains. Too bad you weren't paying attention.

You can see the monorail in the establishing shots of Gotham. As for the train you see when the Joker is standing on the corner waiting to be picked up...that my friend is the Chicago CTA.

I thought that the Wayne building was the penthouse, but I guess I'm totally wrong.

The monorail wasn't in this film because the monorail's not important.

The big Wayne building is in the background of the scene with the Batpod vs. Joker. I think you can see it after the 18-wheeler flips.

First screencap from Begins, second from TDK. Sorry for the quality, I ripped them from youtube.

They're just using the building next door this time.
