Someone on TDKR's Facebook Page proposed the idea of Christian Bale dressed as Batman for visit all the kids ho have been injured during the event. To let them know that bad guys will not get away with it.
 
personally I am interested in what flipped the switch inside of his head it is not normal for
someone of his status to drop his whole life in short notice after withdrawing from one of
the top programs that you can get into and one of the hardest classes to get in also being a part of programs-classes that more than likely specialized in mind control and emotions. If there was some planning in this the theatre was not it I think as he did not even try to take people's lifes as a normal person would have in his situation inc his own

No. This is a terrible idea.
 
Kevin Smith's show Spoilers had a touching tribute to the Aurora shooting. It's worth checking out.

That is one of the most horrible ideas I've ever heard. Listen, I'm all for Ron Perlman fulfilling some dying kids wishes, but the scale of this tragedy is so much greater. For Bale to show up prancing around in a Batsuit just really trivializes it in my eyes. If Christian Bale, the actor, wants to visit them in private without cameras everywhere, then great. But let's not treat this like it's Comic-con.

We've been over this. Nice thought, bad idea.

No, actually it's a bad thought AND a bad idea. :funny:

Warner Bros. & DC have already lost significant sales at the Box office over this. They are NOT going to march their film's poster boy into the thick of the situation and further marry themselves to the problem. :whatever:
 
Yeah... it'll be nice when people stop thinking that is a good idea and spreading it around.

...definitely NO on having Bale dress as Batman and visit the victims of this tragedy.
 
I know, I was just letting him down easy. :o

Perhaps we need to travel to the Bat-boards and strike at the source of this bad idea. It keeps coming back up in this conversation like the gift that keeps on giving. LOL :p


:cool:
 
Good god the bat voice plus the flashbacks would be horrible for those kids. Someone should dress as the joker. I kid i kid.

Poor kids will probably be traumatized by anything batman or theater related for a while.

That's one of the biggest bummers. Something that should fill these people with joy, something that brightens peoples days is turned into a trauma. That madman took that from them.
 
Yeah, I mentioned over the weekend I hope these little kids are not scarred for life and associate Batman with this. They're still real impressionable and unfortunately that may very well happen.
 
Batman has always been my favorite hero and as a child he was the hero so i can imagine what i would feel like have had that stolen from me. ****ing bastard! Im not religious but if there is a hell may the devil find him.

It's awful. This was supposed to be fun.

I can't imagine that theater was any different than ours was on Thursday night. It was so much fun being there, it never even entered my mind that something like that could happen. I can't imagine how terrible it was for them.
 
I want to go back and see the film again (it was amazing) but I would be lying if I said I wasn't a tad bit concerned about the idea of a copycat trying something here. :dry:
 
I really hope this POS doesn't get off due to insanity. :cmad:
 
Worry not, X Knight. He will be executed. And no amount of pursed, poked out lips, forlorn facial expressions and Ronald McDonald hair will prevent that. :up:
 
^ I hope so.

this guy is a monster.
 
If we continue to see what we saw today, and if his lawyers continue to make the mistakes they did today......he will be seen as competent to stand trial, and the insanity plea will not work.
 
Lets be honest, any competent lawyer is going to get the death penalty off the table in exchange for a guilty plea. If I was appointed his public defender, it's what I would do. As of right now I haven't seen anything to justify an insanity defense.
 
This is good to hear.

Warner Bros. to Make 'Substantial' Donation to Colorado Shooting Victims''

The studio behind 'The Dark Knight Rises' has been in contact with the state governor's office and will make a lump sum contribution.

Warner Bros., the studio behind The Dark Knight Rises, is making a donation to charities supporting victims of the Aurora, Colo., shooting rampage.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the studio has been in contact with Colorodo governor John Hickenlooper's office and will contribute to a fund identified by the governor on the website givingfirst.org, which is a program of Colorado's Community First Foundation. The fund distributes monies across several charities that will support victims of the July 20 killing spree that left at least 12 dead and dozens injured.

The studio will not release publically the amount of the lump sum donation but sources say it is "substantial."

Warner Bros. CEO Barry Meyer also is set to send a companywide email on Monday evening advising employees of the donation and explaining how they can donate personally to the victims.

Warner Bros. has reactived swiftly in the wake of the July 20 killing spree at a midnight screening of the latest Batman movie. The studio quickly released a statement saying that Warners "and the filmmakers are deeply saddened to learn about this shocking incident. We extend our sincere sympathies to the families and loved ones of the victims at this tragic time."

The studio then canceled a planned Paris premiere and other press events and declined to release box office figures for Dark Knight Rises over the weekend out of respect for the families of the victims. The Christopher Nolan-directed film grossed a robust $160.9 million in three days, the best opening ever for a 2D film.

Warners is the first of the Hollywood organizations to make a charitable gift. Cinemark, which owns the Century Aurora 16 theater where the shooting took place, has yet to announce any donation, nor has the MPAA or the National Association of Theatre Owners.
