The new BATCAVE under Wayne Manor is lit by fluorescent lights, with spotlights on ten displays cases. The BAT-COMPUTER sits in a corner, covered from condensation and other waters by a hood. Next to the computer is the case holding the BATSUIT. Near the waterfall is the BAT-POD, as there is no current BATMOBILE. BRUCE WAYNE stands near the DISPLAY CASES, ALFRED enters.
CUT TO- Bruce looking at the contents of the DISPLAY cases. He walks past them. In one, the ORGINAL BATSUIT he wore during his first months as THE BATMAN. In the next, the MASK OF THE SCARECROW. In the third, an empty vial of the FEAR TOXIN ANTIDOTE. The fourth contains THE CALLING CARD OF THE JOKER. Wayne stops.
Miss Kyle called, she said she would be unable to make it to dinner tonight.
Just as well, since this Riddler figure. I haven't seen anyone so obsessed with Batman since....
BRUCE looks at the CALLING CARD.
Since him. I still hear his laugh in my dreams, Alfred. I still hear the echo of the things he said to me.
Then why, sir, do you place trophies from your adventures in such plain sight? Some would say you are honoring them.
BRUCE hesitates, walks to the next (fifth) DISPLAY CASE. Inside is the COIN that belonged to HARVEY DENT, as well as a "I BELIEVE IN HARVEY DENT" BUTTON.
No, I've made this little museum to remember... what I've faced.
CUT-TO: WAYNE facing the five still-empty DISPLAY CASES.
And what I still have to face. I worry I'm going to need more then ten cases...
I'm still not sure how to feel about this new cave setup.
It's like the Burton and Schumacher Batcaves had a baby...and it grew up and decided to be emo.
I pretty much like it. There's not too much for me to hate about it. I said this last night, but its not my ideal Batcave, but I think it works for these films.I don't dislike it...its serviceable. They got the obvious elements right, and the idea of the water hiding it is pretty cool.
Who's he hiding it from?
And when did all this get done if he retired from being Batman after THE DARK KNIGHT?
Seeing Wayne walking out and about the Batcave without his cowl though was so awesome. Loved that scene.
If Bruce had given up on everything, why even continue with the construction of the cave after the end of Batman? Though, it did seem rather sparse and minimal compared to other Batcaves I'm used to. Perhaps what there is in the film was completed before he hung up the cowl?
