    Thanks, that is so very, very different from the cufflinks and their apparent meaning in the story. I'm glad I banned @SquirrelBallZ as a troll because they were not contributing anything of value.

    What do you all think this role will do for Robert Pattinson as an actor and how he is perceived to the wider audience. Obviously as we have seen people that haven’t seen his work have been ‘twilight boy’. Will his fan base have a big shift?

    i think many will realize how good an actor he is after this. there will be a big shift, i'm predicting.

    but there will still be those who will remain willfully ignorant.
    it's their loss though.

    After watching the clip at the funeral and the cop greeting "Hey. Mr Wayne!" it occurred to me that the torch had been passed from Affleck to Pattinson. He's now Batman/Bruce Wayne.

    It's like when a new doctor/actor puts their mark on Doctor Who

    Hearing Pattinson in the movie being referred to as Bruce Wayne was like a transition.

    A few months after this film has released will start the process of the GA’s minds changing as happened with DiCaprio after Romeo and Juliet and Titanic had many of the male GA writing him off as another pretty boy who can’t act.

    Hey everyone how about instead of Bruce Wayne becoming a playboy to mask his identity he becomes a politician in this universe ?

    He could decide that Belle Reale is right about how he could be doing more for his city but doesn't want to just do his family's history of philanthropy so he enters gothams politics.

    Thomas Wayne also ran for mayor in this universe and with the rumors of him being more grey as well as the Riddlers supposed revelations of the Wayne's Bruce may feel the need to do what his father tried but failed to do which is helping Gotham City through politics following in his father's footsteps but avoiding the mistakes his father made redeeming the Wayne legacy and giving his Bruce Wayne side a way to be as effective at Gotham corruption as Batman.


    Similar things have happened before and it would be a fresh take on the Bruce Wayne perosna instead of the playboy CEO or philanthropist we've seen a repeated a thousands times in live action.

    It provides opportunitys for Robert Pattinson to shine in humorous or ironic serious devasting and triumphing moment's that often happen in political drama.

    But more importantly it shows Bruce using both sides of his life Batman and Bruce Wayne fighting against corruption of Gotham City more cleary than the general audience have ever seen in live action.

    That GQ video was a fun watch. On that subject, I read that he described to GQ that his Bruce Wayne is a weirdo and not so much a playboy. Made me wonder if he might surpass Keaton levels of weirdo Bruce lol. And Pattinson plays weirdo really well so I’m looking forward to that.

    Damn straight. Honestly I think it's also often applicable the other way around too.

    Don't know how everyone will take this, but Pattinson reminds me a lot of Val Kilmer in personality, especially around Val's time at Pattinson's age.
