Besides, we don't know that JGL didn't get any of that training. I'm sure we'll see that when he dawns (get it?) the mask. :P
oy...tip your waitresses.
But really...even Robin was from a family of acrobats. From now on, everytime I see that stoopid Miller 64 commercial I will picture all of those tools wrapping the batmobile around the first thing they encounter, cause ANYONE can be the Batman. How'd that work out for Matthew Modine?
I'm just saying that Batman has ALWAYS been portrayed as a symbol that the criminal element was afraid of. From the start. Bruce Wayne just embodied him. Hell, there were references every movie with the baddies being afraid of him at night. Batman never got rid of crime in Gotham. The fact that he existed just scared them into doing less of it.
Yeah, but part of the mystique was HOW Batman appeared...out of nowhere, like a ghost. Hows a flatfoot gonna pull that off. SomeGuy just showing up in a cape is more likely to inspire laughs than fear. It's all style.
Welll.... that settles it.
Nolan is an idiot.
The way I saw it in the Nolan Batman flicks was not that anyone could be Batman, it's that anyone and everyone can and should stand up to injustice and crime. I agree that the 'anyone can be Batman' sentiment is dumb.
See...that's some nice fence straddling right there, but Big Brown sums it up well. If Nolan had put it that way I would have signed off on it. But to imply that an almost superhuman feat could be pulled off by any elliptical riding schmo...well monsignor, that dog just don't hunt.
He can be Batman without doing things the same way, though, can't he? Maybe JGL's Batman will use a gun and shoot people like Punisher. :)
nope. No code...no Batman...ask Azrael.
