    Batman took out every member of the justice league in The Justice League: Doom.

    The only character better than Batman...
    is Deadpool.

    I thought the movie was done really well. Nolan seemed to take a ton of stuff from "Knight Fall" and especially "The Dark Knight Returns". The latter is more of a 'What if book' and that is fine and all but I do like my movies closer to the actual comics.

    The problem with the plot, I feel, was that Batman legacy didn't feel fleshed out enough. I mean we have known Batman to fight crime for decades, take down dozens of villains, and have tons of elaborate story lines. But with Nolan, Batman is doing his Batman stuff for like a total of...2 maybe 3 years and that's it. BB and DKR happen within months of each other. Then he's retired. Then back for like half a dozen months and that's it.

    Then the pacing is another gripe. It's bad enough I feel like I'm watching a 60 year old batman try to put on the cape and cowl one last time (making batman feel less badass), I have to watch him go from broken to healed TWICE in one movie. It felt very repetitive. I feel like Baine could of been introduced as the reason Batman is retired and then we watch him build back up ONCE.

    OH! And did anyone notice that the little boy that stole the apple (the one that Catwoman saves from the two guys toward the end of the movie) could of been Jason Todd?

    Who's face would melt if this was the next Batman film. Starring JGL and have old man Bruce mentor him. Batman Beyond the movie

    I'd buy tickets today. uploadfromtaptalk1343425249297.jpg

    I hope when they do reboot Batman they don't start out with the original beginning again. Maybe start with The Batman Returns.
