FEATURE: The Boston Batman's Top 5 CBM moments

Here's my top 5 CBM moments of all-time! Enjoy!

5. Ending of Spiderman-this scene showed that Peter has accepted the fact that his life is going to be different from everyone else, and he finally realizes what Uncle Ben meant. Raimi did an excellent job of capturing emotion and it was a really special moment since it was right after 9/11 when he swung up next to the flag.

4. Batman Begins Ending-This scene highlights the beginning of a great partnership between Gordon and Batman. Nolan shows us something that none of the Burton/Schumacher movies did: how special the Gordon-Batman relationship is. And who didn't have a nerd-gasm when Gordon pulled out that Joker card?

3. Iron Man post-credits scene-Another epic nerd-gasm moment...it was a dream come true for fans who had been waiting their whole life for a team-up movie, just an all-around great scene.

Oh, what the hell, All of them were awesome!

2. Spider Man 2 train fight-In my opinion the greatest fight scene in CBM history. Everything is executed beautifully,like it came straight out of a comic book.

1. And the winner is...





1. The Dark Knight-Joker vs. Harvey's Swat Truck/ Batman. Just an amazing scene, from the chilling scene with the Bat-pod ejection (4:10 mark in video), to the perfectly executed showdown between Batman and the Joker at the end of the scene, this is truly the greatest scene in CBM history.


Incredible Hulk-campus battle

Superman II-"General, would you care to step outside?"

Spiderman 3-Harry helps Peter (say what you want about the movie, but an all-around great scene)

Batman-"wait till they get a load of me"

The Dark Knight-ending scene and interrogation scene

That Spidey 2 scene is so good.

IMO you picked the worst scene from TDK. Firstly, Nicky Katt (the actor to link the past 2 Batman franchises incidentally) annoyed me with his unnecessary commentary.

The other thing- and people don't seem to pick up on this- is how bad the editing is in TDK. It bothers me constantly. The worst example of it is in this scene- go to 5.46. That is shoddy work.

Would everyone just stfu about te dark knight for christ's sake?! As I've said before, it's not an actual comic book movie, if you're an actual Batman fan you'd know it's really not based on the comics. Plus it's the most overrated film of all time next to avatar. It may be a good general movie, but it is by no means a cbm.

how is it not based in the comics, there are constantly small references to the comics in the film.

see this is what we all mean by haters commenting on threads about batman and when sometimes the thread isnt even about batman.

you guys are the the ones who are obsessed with this film, its very crazy and petty.

go over to the the atricle about "et tonight" paying a visit to the avengers set and you'll see that even the "nolanites" arent talking shit about the that movie in the comment section

@TheBostonBatman I'm not saying it's a bad movie in general. But READ Long Halloween. Read The Killing Joke & The Man Who Laughs. Heath Ledger played a good villain but it wasn't the Joker. Lots of over-acting in the film too. It's annoying how [frick]ing obsessed people are with the movie.

Batman Begins and The Dark Knight
Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins and its sequel The Dark Knight are set during the same timespan and has indeed adapted several elements directly from the graphic novel. While the thematic elements cannot be stressed here (corruption at GCPD, Bruce's personal vocation, Jim Gordon etc.), some of the more direct interpretations include:
Major characters like Commissioner Loeb, Detective Flass and Carmine 'The Roman' Falcone who are featured prominently in Batman Begins.

The scene with Bruce Wayne returning from years of training abroad on board a plane reminisces the first page of the graphic novel.

Christian Bale's 'street attire' in Batman Begins mimics the clothes in the first issue of Batman: Year One when Bruce is walking down the Lower East End.

Tying Falcone up: In the graphic novel Batman ties The Roman in his own house; in the film, he ties The Roman to a searchlight.

In the final act of Batman Begins, while being cornered by the GCPD at Arkham Asylum Batman uses a high-frequency device to attract his bats from the cave. This is taken from the final act of the graphic novel when
Batman does the same thing at the abandoned tenement fire.

Using bats as an escape: In the graphic novel Batman is cornered by the GCPD and uses a device in the bottom of his boot that sends out a signal to live bats. Hundreds flock to the signal providing chaos and cover that allows batman to escape. In the film there is also a device in his boot that attracts bats and allows him to escape the GCPD in a very similar fashion

The concluding scene where Batman and Gordon are on top of the police headquarters continues, to an extent, the final page of the graphic novel where newly promoted Jim Gordon waits for Batman to arrive. In both the book and the film, Gordon announces the coming of a new threat: The Joker.

During the famous viral marketing for The Dark Knight, an audio clip was available that depicted Harvey Dent walking up to a hostage situation and subduing the threat. While this may not be a direct adaptation, it does resemble the scene with the hostage situation in Batman: Year One, only replacing James Gordon with Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart). Although the entire incident and Dent's role occurs out of earshot and thus did not require Aaron Eckhart to play out the clip.

The concluding scene in The Dark Knight, where Two-Face holds Gordon's family at gunpoint, is reminiscent of the Year One scene where Gordon's family is at danger from The Roman and Loeb's men. Batman saves Gordon's son from a fall in the film just as he does in the book.

@TheBostonBatman As I said, read the Killing Joke & the Man Who Laughs. You obviously don't know what I'm talking about.

@DCnerd46, yeah ur right tdk is so overrated

Shawn Adler of MTV stated Batman Begins heralded a trend of darker genre films, that either retold back-stories or rebooted them altogether. Examples he cited were Casino Royale, as well as the in-development RoboCop, Red Sonja, and Grayskull. Filmmakers, screenwriters and producers who have mentioned the film to describe their projects include: Jon Favreau and Iron Man, Edward Norton and The Incredible Hulk, McG and Terminator Salvation (which also stars Bale), Damon Lindelof and Star Trek, Robert Downey, Jr. and Sherlock Holmes, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Hugh Jackman and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Matthew Vaughn and X-Men: First Class, Rupert Wyatt and Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Kevin Tancharoen and Mortal Kombat. Entertainment Weekly has cited Batman Begins as an inspiration for both the reinventing, as well as the tone for the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man.

yeah ur right, no one knows what ur talking about

Messy Top 5.

Should be titled: "My favorite CBM scenes".
95 - 2/25/2012, 6:33 PM
Well, videos are all over the place.

It's unnecessary to show more than 5 scenes.

Especially when called your "Top 5".

Bright side: You made some agreeable picks.
