?

Do you like the Batpod (after the new trailer footage)?

  1. Hell yes, it's badass.

  2. It's alright, but nothing special.

  3. I can deal with it, but it still sucks.

  4. Nolan? wtf were you thinking?

    I wasn't for or against it, particularly before the trailer, but Batman seems to do a lot of cool ***** on it, and once you see him riding it, you remember why Batman has a bat-cycle or bat-pod or whatever . . . it looks very practical and I'm sure there's a good reason to him having it in regards to the story . . .

    also, a lot of people (average movie-goers) seemed pretty stoked about it . . . especially my younger cousins, who are like 10-14 . . . they were amped!

    It'll always be the Batmobile to people. To be honest, I don't see why they called it the Tumbler. It's not like the general populous will ever break out of the mold of calling it the Batmobile what with the time in between these films.

    ...It's futile, then. You've tainted the world's supply of goat's milk.

    I don't know whether to commend you for that nice flavor or consult a doctor. :csad:

    I think its a gimmick. I thought Nolan was all about the man, not his toys. This seems like a ploy to sell toys. Do we REALLY need a bat-bike? We have the tumbler. Does every Batman film HAVE TO HAVE A CHASE! Boring!

    I'd rather the time spent on chatacter development or plot.

    I don't think Nolan is using the chase sequence as a ploy to sell toys. Unless you can actually drive them ofcourse..!

    It's a gimmick, but it's a cool one, with a place in the mythos. And if they can make the story work with it, that's fine. I just don't want to see the Batpod "replace" The Batmobile.
