Despite frequently being ridiculed, according to the (now made unavailable) production notes for Batman Begins; Wayne is incapable of speaking without the Bat-voice when he is wearing his Cowl. According to original drafts for the film: "High-gain stereo microphones are concealed in the ears, allowing Batman to eavesdrop on distant conversations," the ...

He wanted the flight crash to make it look like the death of Dr Pavel, so he took the blood from Pavel and put it in other guy so that when they find the bodies after the crash they can confirm the death of pavel by his blood signature. I think Bane wanted Pavel to be assumed dead because a nuclear scientist missing would bring needless attention to the ...

I actually think he had three "levels" of minions. League of Shadows members. These are the ones that are willing to lay down their lives for him and "the cause" Thugs. Disposable minions that he may pay to do things that he may not want directly tied to the League (guys running the cement trucks, the one that he shot, etc.) Street urchins. These are ...

In the movie Bane was trying to cause chaos in the city by pitting the rich against the poor. You see those judgements passed for the rich people who lived their life so luxuriously given by Crane. Revealing the fact that Bruce Wayne (who is one of the richest people in the gotham) to be Batman might create the idea that not all rich people are bad and might ...

It is definitely Selina Kyle, never thought it could be someone else (and have never heard anybody not referring to her being Selina Kyle). Yet that particular screenshot is indeed a bit vague, but together with the fact that due to the story's development she is most probable to be Selina Kyle it still bears enough resemblence to Anne Hathaway to be quite ...

Blake doesn't have a full confirmation that Wayne is Batman, but as he explains to Bruce, he always had an inkling. Blake talks about losing parents is something no child can ever move on from, not someone stuck in an orphanage like him, or someone like Wayne, with boundless money and potential. Its a kind of unspoken comradery that only those in the ...

A screenshot from the trailer shows that the rope doesn't go all the way to the top:

It's a matter of the director having a specific vision of how his Batman stories will become. In the first two films, Christopher Nolan wanted to bring Batman back to his roots, explore how Bruce Wayne became Batman, and how Batman became the legend he is (in the 1989 Batman film, when Vicki Vale asks Bruce why bats, he replies "They're great survivors"; in ...

If I'm remembering right, the techs say that the change was 'checked in'. I took this to mean 'checked into source control'. That is: There are two bats They both use the same software, which includes (non-functional) autopiloting. Bruce Wayne was planning on using one of them, but needed the autopilot fixed. So he modified the autopilot. Being the ...

Chaos and Anarchy are the greatest overarching themes of the entire trilogy. In Batman Begins, we are presented a Gotham that is seemingly serene, as we witness a young Bruce playing in his garden, blissful and happy. Until one fateful night, his parents are taken from him in a drastic event that spirals his world completely out of control, into chaos. We ...

During the hospital check up scene, the doctor reveals via x-ray that Bruce Wayne has absolutely no cartilage left in his knee. I'm no doctor, but I think that would make anyone walk with a limp. Thankfully they fix it with that leg gizmo so he doesn't limp for the rest of the movie ;)

Because Bane is working for Talia Al Ghul who is the daughter of Ra's Al Ghul who trained Bruce Wayne and helped him become Batman.

As per this link: Director Christopher Nolan decided against referencing Heath Ledger's The Joker character in the new Batman film, insisting acknowledging the "real-life tragedy" of the late star was "inappropriate".... He explains, "We're not addressing The Joker at all. That is something I felt very strongly about in terms of my relationship with ...

It was really happening. Towards the end during the climax scene it was focussed on all characters who are still alive. We see Morgan Freeman looking at the Bat to see it had a software update, we see Gordon looking at the new Bat symbol. We see there is a package for Blake which leads him to Batcave. the only alive characters remaining are Alfred and ...

Well, most people often forget how easy it is to recognize somebody by voice and Bruce Wayne is kind of a celebrity. So changing his voice is a natural consequence of Nolan's making Batman more realistic. Of course Superman can't be Clark Kent, as he's obviously missing the characteristic glasses ;) And well, it surely also contributes to his dramatic ...

According to numerous resources, nuclear detonation cause rapid waves but that waves couldn't enough to propagate hazardous tsunami waves. Tsunami are huge ocean waves caused by natural forces like underwater earthquakes. According to tsunami website, Could Nuclear testing create a tsunami? Nuclear testing at and near Pacific islands, with ample ...

Most superheroes are, psychologically speaking, more-or-less regular people who adopt a superhero guise to fight crime. Hal Jordan turns into Green Lantern, Peter Parker becomes Spider-Man, and so on. In his modern incarnations, even Clark Kent (who is not precisely "normal", but is as close as he could get under the circumstances) becomes Superman. Batman ...

I just realised in Batman Begins the following is said: Bruce: "He's not a member of the League of Shadows?" Ra's al Ghul: "Oh course not! He thought our plan was to hold the city to ransom." So clearly Scarecrow was only being used as a pawn who managed to weaponize the neuro-toxin.

The fact that Ra's disappeared after talking with Bruce leads you to strongly believe that he was nothing more than a hallucination. Keep in mind a couple of things: Bruce had just undergone serious physical trauma (getting his broken back reset); Ra's had figured out how to use a lotus flower to cause a person to see a blurred view of the world ...

I felt that while we assumed Bane was the child that escaped, it was because we knew his backstory included him being incarcerated as a child. I think that this is still the case and that the mirroring of his own circumstances was enough to want to protect Talia and help her be free. He was a man tortured by hope amongst criminals in the pit, he ended up ...

Robin is in the final Nolan directed Batman movie ("The Dark Knight Rises"). In the final few minutes of the movie, when Officer Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is collecting his property from the boys home, the woman behind the desk isn't able to find his name in their system. He then gives her is 'real name,' after which she says "You should use your real ...

I see these colors/movie titles as the day in the life of a bat, beginning at sunset (orange) and ending at sunrise (white/bight) with a dark night in between (blue). Also plays on the titles; BEGINS, NIGHT and sunRISE. That is another nice conclusion to the saga.

After Talia escapes, she informs Ra's Al Ghul of Bane; so he comes to the prison & rescues Bane (this scene is shown for a short time ~5 seconds), and later trains him.

Deh-Shay Deh-Shay Bah-Sah-Rah is what they are chanting. There are strong notions suggesting that it's Moroccan which translate to He Rises. He Rises. The guy in the movie says it means rise. I am guessing the chant is the motivation for the person to climb up which could literally mean "he rises" when the crowd are chanting. This link also suggests that ...

There is a difference getting stabbed normally and with the bat suit on which could absorb some of the major damage intended. We can assume the fact that he is using the same suit he used from Dark Knight at this point, although one more curious point to note is during the earlier scene when he meets Lucius Fox for the first time in the third movie he seems ...

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD Imagine it's a week before the opening scene. Bane is scheming on how to destroy Gotham, learns of Wayne's fusion reactor/neutron bomb via Miranda/Talia, and decides it will be his main device to hold Gotham in fear while he lets them destroy themselves from the inside. Sinister, indeed. Bane also comes to learn Dr. Pavel is the only ...

This is an interview with Edwin Lyman, PhD, scientific director for the Nuclear Control Institute, in November 2001. Member Question: What are the levels of radiation risk at 10 miles, 100 miles, 100,000 miles from ground zero? How far can the radiation travel? Is that based solely on wind direction? Edwin Lyman: Well, again one should distinguish ...

From what I've gathered, he has to wear that mask in order to tolerate the constant pain he is in after the mauling he took while helping Talia escape. It feeds a nerve numbing gas to him. That said - it is not really shown in use (gas canister-wise) during the film, and a bit ambiguous. Also seems a bit of a weak spot for such a tough guy. I've found a ...

First it was 4.2 on Richter scale. 4.2 MW is just unit of energy. I don't think the bomb would have caused a tsunami though - it may have caused huge waves but they wouldn't have reached Gotham. The Bomb was capable of destroying 6 mile radius area. So assuming that bomb was dropped 6 miles away from Gotham in the ocean, the water would have absorbed ...

I found this piece online while looking for something related to the Dent Act. Looks real enough to think that it was released as part of the trailer. I think it provides stricter penalties and parole denial to put fear into people committing organized crime. Anyone probably arrested on suspect could be tried immediately rather than the usual turn around ...
