    Never got around to seeing his previous show. Heard good things, however.

    I'm mostly just really curious as to how they're going to portray his anger here. Withdrawn and repressed? Seething and volatile? Stoic and suffering? Or is he already wearing a mask of Bruce Wayne?

    I've also thought of something; we've speculated on the original thread that Bruce and Selina might hang out on the streets, and we've noticed that a lot of the crooks and criminals have odd names like "Fish." Could we see a pubescent Matches Malone?

    The kid has a darkness about him. I approve.

    Great idea. Bruce probably is too famous to be walking around anonymously. It could be a lot of fun seeing Matches build his rep.

    I'm really hoping we see a Bruce Wayne who doesn't have his **** together. It always irks me when Batman is portrayed as basically having been born perfect, where he was already the ultimate badass ubermensch his first night on the job and that he formulated a twelve point plan to become Batman the morning after his parents were killed. What I want to see from Bruce on this show is an angry, depressed, confused, but ultimately idealistic kid who knows that he wants to stand up to the people who make life hell for everyone else and who knows he wants to do everything he can to fix what's wrong with Gotham, but he's still years away from figuring out how. He's going to get into a lot of trouble, make a lot of mistakes, and rush headfirst into danger on more than a few occasions while he struggles, awkwardly and painfully, to figure it out.

    Basically, Batman is something he's going to have to work for, something he's only going to have the vaguest and most ephemeral notions of at the start, and I think we get the most out of his story if he gets he gets kicked in the teeth quite a few times along the way.

    Fox must've used Justin Timberlake's hair stylist.

    I could see him growing up to be Christian Bale, or potentially even Ben Affleck (depending on what his Bruce looks like).

    Like what I said in the other thread, he's a very cute kid. I almost didn't recognize him without his curly hair in Touch. :funny: He actually looks like a young Bale especially with that smirk.

    My excitement for this show is reaching uncontainable levels. I can't believe this is happening.

    That looks so fantastic.

    Finally someone gets the "Bruce and the mugger" moment right.

    Both BEGINS and BATMAN had solid murder sequences. I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about the "Stop lookin' at me like that" kid moment from the Golden Age and classic portrayals of the murder.

    BEGINS sort of ignored it. Burton's BATMAN had sort of a nod to it, but was mostly a moment revolving around Young Napier.

    I'm not talking about the murder. I'm talking about Bruce encountering the mugger, and the mugger being unnerved by that.

    I seem to recall Bruce and Joe Chill locking eyes briefly in Begins. Besides, Chill panicking and getting the Hell out of dodge was such a believable reaction that I didn't really care.

    That's a cool thing to have, but not having it doesn't mean that they got the scene wrong. The mugging scene doesn't live or die on the mugger being unnerved by looking at the kid who's parents he just killed, it's simply a nice touch that's useful depending on why your take on the mythos is.

    In BEGINS, Bruce rapidly looks at him pretty much as Chill is already turning around to run. There's not really any locking of eyes.

    The scene in BEGINS works, I'm just saying it's a fairly classic moment we've yet to see on film.

    I didn't say they got the overall scene wrong. I specifically addressed the moment between Bruce and the mugger, and clarified what I was talking about after I did so.
