It was explored.

Really...I don't need them to hang out and talk about random stuff to know they have a friendship.

On one hand, Nolan probably needs to steer clear. On the other... I love seeing the studios kissing Nolan's feet.

For those who played Arkham City, didn't the sniping scene in TDKR remind you a lot of the game?

Batman's "hint" was a little longwinded for me the first time, but still!

And...my boss is a fairly hands-off boss with strict boundaries between work and personal life, and we try not to get too gossipy. "How was your weekend?" is about as far as I take it. But it's really, really obvious he cares about us and our well-being. You don't need to get all bro-y on someone to care about them.

Anyone else like the subtle tweaks to the suit? Like the neck area being noticeably thicker this time around or was that just bale?

I chocked up most of the difference that I noticed to lighting, as this movie has more of an opalescent/white lighting on the suit compared to the Dark Knight's bluer highlights.

Most of the difference I'm noticing is near the top around the shoulders and above the chest.

I'm not sure what it was, but the suit looked better in TDKR than TDK. Or maybe I just like the way it was lit and used more. It's strange that I can't explain it yet. Maybe when I have the blu-ray I'll do some side-by-side comparisons. I didn't do any with the trailers.

It was lit much better. Batman's lighting in TDK was hit or miss. Sometimes he looked great, but other times he looked terrible. It was consistently awesome in TDKR.

I think that the suit looked better as Bale was in a better shape and that cape was bigger this time.

I'll still never understand why Nolan decided to have the cape over one of Batman's shoulders like a toga in the TDK interrogation. It looked so silly.

I think it was to show that he was the Avatar, from the East. The Chosen One.

I have no idea, but I mentioned this before. The neck of the suit did look a lot more thicker to me too.

Worth a look, especially if you're interested in the symbolism and subtext of the film. It's a pretty sound analysis in my opinion, and it's very succinct. A good read.

Ok, so my friend has been stating and specualting since Begins that that is not Bale in the costume. Can anyone actually confirm or deny this. I mean sometimes I watch as well and think I mean it doesn't look like him? I know that's the point but do the facial structures line up?

In closeups, it's obviously Bale. He has the same lips (lisp ) and teeth.

IIRC Bale did most of his own stunts in the suit, but there's no requirement that it has to be Bale in the suit all the time. There are stunt doubles for that...

Buster did his stunts in BB and TDK, but I haven't ever noticed it being him. It always clearly seems to be Bale, apart from maybe a couple of Batpod shots, I think.
