    I would hope not, It would help to further distinguish this Harvey as well as her just being a cool character.

    Although he does meet some of the criteria for BPD, I don't really think of Bruce as having unstable mood swings; changes in his emotional state are almost always brought on by a specific catalyst.

    Here's an example of a typical mood swing:

    A cheerful Bruce takes Vicki Vale out on a picnic date. They're having a great time in each other's presence. Then all of a sudden, Bruce becomes extremely irritable and demands that they take their leave. On the ride home, he's cheerful again and wants to give the date another go. lol

    Bruce isn't like that. His destructive behavior notwithstanding, he's actually capable of having good/stable interpersonal relationships. He rarely if ever mistreats Alfred, for instance.

    Agreed.

    It’s crazy that Pattinson is almost the same age as Clooney when he was Bats.

    Jesus. Clooney in B&R looks like he could be Pattinson's sexy young dad.

    Clooney always looked old though. Even with dark hair.

    It's strange to think how young some of the Marvel guys were as well. Evans was 29 in Avengers. Hemsworth was 26 in Thor. By comparison, Tom Holland is 25 now.

    Yep, Pats was in good shape for the role and it already showed in how he moves and carries himself, even if it was hard to tell when he was jogging around London. He didn't put on an MCU style fitness model physique, but the guy definitely trained for this role.

    He's kinda got an old school boxer/fighter look going on...Reminds me of De Niro in Raging Bull or Russell Crowe in Cinderella Man:

    So further to this theory of mine, I just realized that Bruce even wears old school boxing handwraps under the gloves of the Batsuit:

    Reeves really has a lot of 70s neo-noir elements in this film...

    So after watching the new trailer for like the 20th time today, I think my favorite shot is the very last one of Battinson laying waste to the Riddler goons with the shotgun rifle. But it's that very last shot, right as he turns around and the main part of the new Batman theme starts to play; with the smoke in the background...chills, man...

    In the words of Alfred: Dear God.

    it's still hard for me to tell if there is a distinction between his batman and bruce wayne voice, in the trailers.

    either way, i think his voice when he's speaking as batman is pretty good.
    it's not over the top as bale's.
    it's bit like keaton and kilmer, but sounds different from them too.

    I think it's there, it's just really subtle. It's like the difference between Conroy's Bruce voice vs his Batman in the Arkham games. There's a very small difference in inflection, with Rob's Batman voice being a little more gravelly while his Bruce sounds quieter and smoother. Compare his "You got a lot of cats" line with "I'm not so sure". There's definitely a difference, it's just very small

    I could also just be hearing things but I'm fine with there not being a difference for this movie anyways. Bruce is a recluse, it's not like people are constantly hearing him talk on TV like they would with Prime Batman. And Battinson already seems Keatonesque in how little he talks, both as Batman and Bruce. So I can buy nobody making the connection for this movie. But I hope his Bruce voice does change more as he steps more into the light

    Hey guys. Long time lurker. One thing I don't see a lot of people mentioning is just how much Batman seems to be in this movie. I think Rob is gonna spend much of his time on screen in the suit, which I really like.
