Default Who was your FAVORITE Couple within the Series?

Well now that we've finally seen all three films; and after talking with some posters about it, I'm just curious into knowing as to who was everyone's favorite romantic pairing within the Nolan series:

1. Bruce Wayne and Rachel Dawes: Batman Begins & The Dark Knight

2. Bruce Wayne and Miranda Tate: The Dark Knight Rises

3. Bruce Wayne/Batman & Selina Kyle/Catwoman: The Dark Knight Rises

Now if you noticed, I didn't use "Talia" above because by the time Talia's unveiled, all romantic possibilities and aspects are completely thrown out the window.haha

So the case here would be, to view that "unique" pairing based on what we saw between Talia and Bruce ONLY from the time that she had posed as Miranda at the beginning half of "The Dark Knight Rises".

Course, there's always the option of choosing another pairing within the series, ala the "Other" option; whether it be Harvey Dent & Rachel, or from what I've read in Annefan's posts, Holly and Selina

A part of me is saying that I shouldn't be surprised if/when the Selina/Bruce option wins.lol...but I got to admit, that aside from the whole stabbing in the stomach thing.lol..let alone it being an facade..for the way that it was presented in the first half, I didn't mind Bruce and Miranda.lol

I felt the romance between Bruce and Miranda before she revealed herself to be Thalia was very rushed. He had turn her down so many times before, and then just after the board meetting? She goes as far as screwing him, lol. I guess it made sense though once the twist came.

I didn't really mind Bruce and Rachel (Katie Holmes was a bit miscast though) at all really, and liked that they had known each other since childhood and fell in love somewhere in those years. But, i'll definitely go with Bruce and Selina. They're both a bit similar in personailty, understand each other, and Bruce dosen't have to worry as much if she got in a fight or attacked by thugs as he would of with Rachel, lol. It was too bad we couldn't get even more scenes with them, the relationship was very entertaining and the chemistry between Bale and Hathaway really surprised me. What we got was great though, and the dance scene had some great dialgoue.

Hmm. This is a hard question to answer, but I'm going with Bruce and Rachel. I never had a problem with her character or with the actress who originated her, Katie Holmes, and I liked that she understood Bruce on a level that even Alfred didn't.

Bruce/Seline... by lightyears

Bale and Anne nailed the Bruce/Selina love and hate relationship in the comics.

On another note, I just realized that Bruce and Miranda sort of had their own love theme for the film; granted it was used for one other scene as well from my memory, but they definitely had a part from "On Thin Ice" played for when Bruce took Miranda into Wayne Manor till the point where they started kissing.

Maggie G for sure great actress suited the role of Rachel more but Katie wasn't bad either.

I can agree with this. I do not think any other couple in this trilogy was more deep, unique, and genuine than Harvey Dent and Rachel Dawes.

Dent and Dawes, then Bruce and Selina. Bruce and Selina didn't feel as fleshed out as I would've liked and Dent/Dawes resonated more with me following her demise. I felt like, despite the ending, Bruce only found a girl but I wasn't convinced it was the girl. They had great chemistry but it needed more than just that one kiss.

I can see where you're coming from, but remember the cafe scene was definitely months after the final battle and very likely six months which is pretty much stated in the autopilot scene. I'm just trying to say that's plenty of time for them to devlop a powerful romance. Like someone else said you can look at this movie as the set up because there was a lot of it and flirting to and the big romance happened off screen especially since she's wearing the pearls at the end and he's not gonna give that to someone he's been dating for two weeks or even a month. She was definitely the first person he would of saw after his fake death since they both seemed to want the same thing.

Easily Bruce/Selina.

I might've given Bruce/Miranda a chance if that angle was explored more but it wasn't so yeah... it doesn't stand a chance at all.

Bruce and Alfred.


Scenes in TDKR had me choked up far more than any romantic one did in the entire series. Plus, these two loved one another from the very day Wayne was born.

Nolan has nailed the Bruce/Alfred and Batman/Gordon relationship so well.

It's hard to imagine any other actors in these roles. They're all so good.
