You know what I think would have been a cool thing to do with the post-stock exchange robbery? Seeing as it was Batman's return, it would have been cool to not get a good look at him for most of the chase. Just see him as blur, a shadow, but never getting a clear look at him until that shot when we see his foot step out next to the guy who he knocked off the motorcycle.

I still don't understand why Miranda Tate would sleep with Bruce. I understand gaining his trust but to sleep with a man you hate doesn't make sense.

She must think that the benefits outweigh the costs. "do what's necessary".

(or perhaps she was ordered by Ra's years and years ago to produce an heir with Bruce Wayne (the perfect man). She gives birth pre-maturely after 5 months (during the occupation) to Damien who is kept in NICU and later raised by the League to be an heir. Dun dun dun).

In theory that would be cool, but then we wouldn't have gotten that bad ass "Do you know who I am?" glare he gives the younger cop.

You still don't understand why Bruce retired if you think Rachel's death still played a part in it. Rachel's death played a part in Bruce not moving on and finding someone else. If the Dent Act didn't happen, Bruce would have still been around as Batman(well, if he could have fixed his leg that is ).

Agreed.
Also, he probably would have gone to Fox about his leg 8 years earlier

She did it to tire him out before he fought Bane.

I would even suggest that very same night as Fox is destroying that sonar and Bruce comes to him asking if he has something to fix his leg.

I always thought it was Miranda tiring him/weakening him and possibly getting him to agree to fly out of the country with her and that was Plan A into getting him into the Pit(to where Talia would reveal herself since she never seemingly was going to if Bruce died in the Pit after Bane took him there).

The MTV Awards trailer is my favorite.

Followed by the first full TDK trailer.

That 2 minute trailer was far and away better than the entirety of I Am Legend.

I agree, amazing trailer. It's very close between this one and the first full TDK trailer for me.

The MTV trailer was awesome too for sure, but more in a "F*** YES this movie looks BADASS!" way. Trailer 3 is so haunting, subdued and emotional. It really took me off guard when I saw it, not what I was expecting at all.

The MTV one was my favorite. I loved the eerie music in the beginning with Catwoman saying to "Bane", "don't be shy". Yeah, it ended up being Batman, but we know how trailers are.

The MTV and Nokia trailers were probably when my anticipation was at it's highest. I couldn't wait.

That third official trailer was something else. Like BatLobsterRises said, I didn't expect for it to be that haunting.

I remember my eyes started to tear up right when Alfred says "I won't bury you", and the horn motif plays right when Batman turns around to see Bane behind him. And then when Batman walks through the smoke I started to completely lose it. Oh man, good times, lol.

If we're reposting the trailers, I have to remind everyone of the premiere livestream. Not sure how many of you watched that with us, but it was BRUTAL.

Modern Myth Media has posted their TDKR commentary podcast. I know what I'm doing when I get home from work tomorrow

I definitely recommend their BB and TDK commentaries. Good insight, good discussion, fun to listen to.
