Not bad, I still think the cape had the best shots in BB, by far.

That's probably true, but there was some great imagery in Rises as well. The shot of Batman perched up above Catwoman before he jumps down and fights with her is one of the best Batman shots in the series. I wish I could post it.

Here's another cool one:



There's a ton of other great Batman pics but they came from the Blu Ray stills so we have to wait until the 4th before we can post them.

I've read a few people post on how they believe that another reason why he chose to leave the mantle to Blake is that he felt that Blake would provide to be a better Batman that Gotham would need in the long run due to not being as emotionally scarred as Bruce was; let alone, not being motivated by anger. What do you guys think about that theory/assumption?

That's what I always figured, actually. Blake would not have compromised his morals as much as Bruce, like with the cell phone sonar or the Dent lie.

I think that would be more of a benefit than a hinderance.

Yes, I think that was very much his intention. Bruce was so blindly going after his goal that he compromised his values in exchange for what seemed like the perfect opportunity to enact an effective judicial law. This sham eats away at them, but it isn't until Bane forces it out in the open that they truly face the repercussions, mentally, and truly realize it was not a real victory, that the change had to happen from the heart of the people not through a harsh police-state mentality. Blake really embodies this idea in a way that Bruce never did early on in his quest, and I think Bruce really believed this inherent lack of anger in his search for justice would be a major advantage for the people.

It's hardly a new idea. Pretty much ever since Robin was invented there has been this thought about him ultimately being the better man, that Bruce would give his young ally the upbringing that he never had and when he eventually gives away the keys the proverbial castle and steps down (through death or otherwise) it will all be in better hands.

I wish I had gotten that sooner since up until now, I've never thought about that notion.lol

I was always blindsided by the notions that Robin was originally created in order to appeal to the younger demographics back in the day that I never saw that potential that Robin could be the better man when the time came for succession.

Probably a definitive 'No' answer, but do you think Bruce had compromised his morals so much is because of being strayed away for a moment of time with the League and Ra's al Ghul? I mean, Bruce is keen on not killing, BUT, being trained under Ra's(or who he thought was Henri Ducard), could have compromised on how far he'd take things such as taking the blame of Dent's crime or creating the sonar....something we already saw with Blake that definitely had these morals already that could be more outstanding than Bruce.

Ah, you're right. I wonder if they just took that specifically for the pic or if they filmed something. What he's wearing looks like what he wore when he visited Fox.

But didn't Blake say that he's angry in his bones as well or something like that? He shares that commonality with Bruce. Of course, he's not as scarred as Bruce but he's not the happiest person in the world as well. I'm not fond of that interpretation but I can definitely see why most would interpret that he would be a better Batman considering that Nolan pretty much created Blake as an answer to Bruce and Gordon's flaws *cough*GaryStu*cough*. Personally, I don't think we can definitely say that he'll have a much better moral stand than Bruce because he hasn't been through what Bruce went through yet. Maybe he will go through the same suffering. Or maybe not. What if he falls in love with someone and that someone ends up dying because of his war on crime? How will he deal with it? Maybe he can take it better than Bruce but maybe not as well. JMO.

And he actually did it twice!

I didn't realize until recently that he did it first when they met at the sewers. Oh Batman.
