    I have a feeling this one may be a little one-sided, but let's see.

    TDKR! I think BB will get the most votes.

    I like them all, but something about TDK is just awesome. He's not in the tumbler and we get to see the first non-shakey cam combat of the series.

    And the first guys he attacks are the copycats.
    Ramming head-on into a garbage truck is also a great way to introduce yourself into a scene.

    I'd say TDK. That's probably my favourite scene in the film even. Rises comes close as well.

    I was tempted to put that as the quote for the Begins option. :oldrazz:

    I love all of them, but there's just something about TDKR. It's the eight year gap (as well as 4 in the real world) that just gives off this "He's back" feeling.

    TDKR. When those stabbing chords come in, it gives me chills.

    Batman coming back after an eight year exile? LOVED it! I even clapped during that in the midnight showing and I wasn't the only one. It was just so amazing. This legend that hasn't been sighted for eight years finally rides back into the forefront on his mechanical steed.

    The "I'm Batman!" bit in BB was extraordinary, but something about his first appearance in TDKR was just truly epic.

    I loved that little exchange actually. Goyer isn't the greatest for his writing, but I didn't mind the script for BB at all. Anything's better than that guy riding alongside Gordon during that chase scene in TDK.

    The cop extras were way better in Rises.

    I prefer TDKR at the moment cause it's fresh, but I think in the long run "I'm Batman" and the TDKR return will be tied for me.

    Bit of a petty thing to make such a fuss about...

    Simple - to show some humanity that Bruce still has while dressing up as a bat at night. The same humanity when he gives a young kid his device in the Narrows.

    The cop's quips were awful and unnecessary and flatlined the scene a bit whenever his voice is heard.

    I thought the cop extras in TDKR were fine. Damn you Nolan and your inconsistency :argh:

    "I'm Batman!"

    BB will always have a special place in my heart.

    It's a tie between the docks in BB and Batman's return in TDKR.

    But I voted for BB. I kind of want to re-vote, lol. But yeah, Batman has the best intro scenes in these films.

    BB is a close second, but TDKR's first appearance was just perfect. Especially the music when we first see Batman's boot come into view. My only gripe would be Batman's lazy looking punch to that guy's helmet.

    I felt the same way about the water main guy in Begins...we get it, if the microwave emitter gets there, the whole thing we'll blow. He says it like 10 times in 5 minutes.
