Yep, and I am the only one who bought his figure and lightsaber. Thanks for proving his point.

Kids are going to hate this movie for 3/5 of it and be bored to hell, They'll come out of it and Buy a "The Bat",Batman and a Bane figure either way, no matter what happens story wise.

When i was a kid i had a Azrael figure, that was over 10 years ago, up until 2010 i didn't even know who the hell Azrael was, didn't make me like the figure any less.

That's true. But he wasn't the hero. I don't think.

The prequels are a mess, so it's hard to tell.

If you can't tell Qui-gon was the hero of TPM the prequels aren't the mess, your brain is.

I'd argue that he was the hero of TPM.
Anyway, I think killing Batman won't put off kids from buying stuff, if it's done in a heroic manner. If he dies Departed-style, then yeah, it's over.

It is less about merchandise then it is about traumatizing children. If Batman dies brutally, that ain't easy to explain to a kid.

Kids don't care. ''Bobby, you want me to buy you a Batman figure?'' ''No, he died in this film I didn't even understand!''

Seriously? Batman is cool as hell, and kids will play with Batman toys regardless of what happens in this film.

There is no argument. TPM is Qui-Gon's movie and that is why it is my favorite prequel.

So you're going to insult me? I would argue Obi-Wan was the hero.

What's there to explain? They'll get over it. In a few years there will be another Batman series.

Kid's will still by the toy. They'll dress up as Batman as a tribute. This argument is so unbelievably foolish it makes me itch.

Batman can die on film, however he won't in this film.

A lot of why I don't think he will is because of this fanboy entitlement that he needs to live because the love the character more than everyone else and they'll feel personally offended by it.

And you would lose that argument, painfully.

Only because you know what he becomes. If you think about it, Obi took control at the end, at which point he barely saved himself. QuiGon did everything, Obi was just following orders and was being a sidekick in fights.

If he dies, he'll die in a heroic fashion, so no probs.

You do realize Obi-Wan pretty much goes missing the entire time they are on Tatoonie right? That is like a third of the film.

Qui-Gon was the one who discovered and chose to train Anakin and went through tonnes of crap with the council etc to do so, Obi-Wan was negative for the the main part of the movie.

That does not make for repeat viewing.

Haven't gotten them yet. But I'm in good with the theater people there. I debuted my feature (see avvy and siggy for more info! #CheapPlug ) and I've been checking movietickets.com and fandago 3 times a day every day and I call about every 2 weeks and whenever I happen to be at the kiosk I'll humbly ask in the most passive aggressive way ever. At this point I've asked so much I wouldn't be surprised if they called ME to let me know tix where going on sale lol

Beating Maul doesn't make one the hero.

Qui-Gon saved Jar Jar

Qui-Gon got away out of the Gungun land

Qui-Gon saved the Queen

Qui-Gon found Watto

Qui-Gon discovered Anakin

Qui-Gon made the deal with Watto

Qui-Gon set Anakin free

Qui-Gon fought off Maul on Tattooine

Qui-Gon escorted Padme back to the palace

Qui-Gon fought Maul alone longer than Obi-Wan

Qui-Gon made Obi-Wan promise to train Anakin.

Obi-Wan beat darth Maul.
