that costume looks f*ckin bad & i don't mean bad as in good.

^^ The comment section for TDKR movie is always amusing. What I find interesting is haters need to post their same opinion over and over again. When normal people don't like hate something about a film (which in the grand scheme of things is quite a trivial thing to channel hatred towards), generally they speak their mind once, then move on with their lives.

At least Batman doesnt look like a circus performer unlike the Avengers! BB suit was really good, but this isnt bad either. The problem is the hating of the haters.
drykillogic22 - 5/15/2012, 8:35 AM
Looks like a depressed bobble head with heavy mascara..lol
batfan175 - 5/15/2012, 8:36 AM
it's Batman XD.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 5/15/2012, 8:41 AM
I never hated on an Avengers article dude. I only didn't like two things, Caps helmet, and some marketing material. I said all along that movie would make a killing, and be somewhere around 88% on Rotten Tomatoes. If it succeeding my expectations is hating then, sure I was hating. Plus not to mention the article I wrote, well before the movie came out, saying it was going to be a huge hit. I never jumped on the not cinematic enough bandwagon, or said Joss Whedon was going to suck (in fact I said countless times I was glad he was getting a chance to direct a big budget flick), and was looking forward to seeing that movie. Now I didn't enjoy Captain America the First Avenger, The Incredible Hulk and to a lesser extent Thor, but you never saw me on those boards saying the same shit over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again.

I understand not everyone likes The Dark Knight, however the hatred on this site is concentrated to a handful of trolls, that post the exact same thing over and over again. It just seems like a lot of effort and time to put into something you allegedly hate.
MarsivNayr - 5/15/2012, 8:52 AM
IMO, the format Joss used for the avengers reminded me of the IMAX format. TV movie? Really? Not "cinematic" enough? I disagreed with that the moment I heard it. I loved the way the movie looked.
JordanKing - 5/15/2012, 9:21 AM
In all fairness, the comments section would get pretty dull real fast if it only consisted of people gushing over a single image. The comments don't specifically indicate that they have to be positive ones. An opinion is just that, an opinion.
JasonCYates - 5/15/2012, 9:37 AM
This suits good, I like how the Kevlar looks like Chain Mail under Plates w/ the cape and helmet, all of this looks very Modern Knight......I wish they had done that in a different way, since this film takes place 8 years later, you'd think his stuff would be more updated.
marvel72 - 5/15/2012, 10:21 AM
i may of said that batman's costume looks bad but its still better than bane & catwoman's.
Ha1frican - 5/15/2012, 10:43 AM
His cowl looks weird and wtf is up with the armor on his arm. But his chest piece looks great
antonio - 5/15/2012, 10:58 AM
@TheDarkSpider if you studied lighting and camera work, you would know EXACTLY why it had a "TV" feel to it.

There's no doubt that TDKR is going to be amazing! Can't wait, I work in radio and am trying to line up the movie premiere at the theatre here!
GingerBird - 5/15/2012, 12:44 PM
Now that The Avengers is fizzling out, we're going to be getting TONS of Dark Knight Rises news.
TheTank - 5/15/2012, 1:59 PM
despite what anyone has said, I'm sure this movie will outdo the avengers. Regardless I hate the suit, i hated the suit in batman begins also, they look exactly like what they are, over thought out over done hollywood crap, there is a way they could have done the costume to make it realistic and still stick to the original design because honestly if he wasn't wearing the cowl, you would have no idea that it was batman, even the symbol on his chest gets lost in everything else that is going on with that suit.

Batman: "Guh...?"

XxBLACKMASKxX - 5/15/2012, 2:53 PM
Why do I always see Marvelites jump on DC articles just to bash the movie?
nowtheresaBATman - 5/15/2012, 2:58 PM
I want to see Batman jam those bat-ears right through Bane's eyeballs.

@BLACKMASK it's how they deal w/ their post-Avengers depression.
dmadtroll - 5/15/2012, 3:11 PM
@yossarian - so friggin' true. if those nolan-worshipping guys haven't started the trolling/bashing articles and reviews. well i guess i wouldn't be a madtroll. but just a troll. hahahaha
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 5/15/2012, 3:21 PM
Same Suit as Dark Knight sooo it makes absolute zero sense for you to bash it like you've never seen it before.
NeoBaggins - 5/15/2012, 3:26 PM
People make Marvel bashing articles? Weird. I thought people were quite fond of Marvel around here.
ralfinader - 5/15/2012, 3:29 PM
"I want to see Batman jam those bat-ears right through Bane's eyeballs."

If Batman got down on all fours, and if Bane were sitting in a high chair...they just might line up...

I like the suit, makes more sense than the leotards I grew up seeing Batman wear.
incredibleTalk - 5/15/2012, 4:40 PM
It took 8 Batman films to get just one great one and just 1 Avengers film to BLOW IT OUT THE WATER...Disney's name is bigger than Nolan's for over 40 years so get over it Nolanite zombies!!!!DC needs to get off it's azz and make real comicbook movies or it's gonna wind up bird sh!t on the windshield of the racecar called Marvel!!!
BatSlam - 5/15/2012, 4:47 PM
i am getting less and less excited about this movie, which is really sad to me. The newest preview put the movie in more of a massive drama setting to me. Also the suit is just sooo annoying, i really wished they would have changed it. Just look at every picture of batman, his mouth is always open because he is mouth breathing and it is because the mask covers up the underside of his nose. Seriously look at almost every pic of batman and his mouth is open, it makes him look retarted.

Hopefully my worries are for nothing and this movie will be amazing.
GiantNerd - 5/15/2012, 5:02 PM
Sad...(they actually picked this image to show?)
GiantNerd - 5/15/2012, 5:09 PM
@maximus dude, you say the same thing on every article. We get it.
JoeMomma29 - 5/15/2012, 5:57 PM
LOL shall we list all the bad Marvel Movies! Finally we get a great movie like The Avengers which is up there with IronMan 1 and all the haters come out against DC! Nolans Batman movies are great, they even got my wife to appreciate Batman and excited to see these movies from Nolan.

Just ignore the Trolls and Haters! This will be a great movie and I will be there in line to see this one as I was in line to see The Avengers!

Ranger14 - 5/15/2012, 6:56 PM
I can handle Batman's suit, though I would still love to see the traditional yellow worked into the belt or symbol, but I get why it's not.

"At least Batman doesnt look like a circus performer unlike the Avengers!"

Yes, it's a shame that the Avengers looked like something right out of the comics. If that is what you mean by "circus performer". :-P
antonio - 5/15/2012, 7:53 PM
@yossarian LMAO were do you see articles like that all time on here? I'm pretty sure this site was mostly pro Marvel.
marknjoanna - 5/15/2012, 8:25 PM
suit looks the same as tdk suit to me,nothing new here.

GingerBird - 5/15/2012, 12:44 PM
Report Comment Now that The Avengers is fizzling out, we're going to be getting TONS of Dark Knight Rises news.

XxBLACKMASKxX - 5/15/2012, 2:53 PM
Report Comment Why do I always see Marvelites jump on DC articles just to bash the movie?

because of all the nolanites was bashing every marvel thread till the avengers shoved it in their dumb faces anyways.

nowtheresaBATman - 5/15/2012, 2:58 PM
Report Comment I want to see Batman jam those bat-ears right through Bane's eyeballs.

@BLACKMASK it's how they deal w/ their post-Avengers depression.

depression huh,again who is #1 at the box office,movie was loved by most all cbm fans it made a billion whats to be depressed about lifes good if yr a marvel fan.

Maximus101 - 5/15/2012, 3:31 PM
Report Comment I didn't think the avengers was all that good to be honest and I love movies I own about 800 myself. Don't know why but it didn't excite or impress me. If it wasn't for ironman being in it I wouldn't even had bothered to see it.

then your in the 7% that didnt like it i guess.

max and his pals gave it a 30% approval rating,rest of the world that saw it is at 93% (last time i looked)
so glad i live in the 93% world.

but maybe his 10 buds didnt like it cause there was a but hurt nolanite sitting by them crying the whole movie.
thewolfx - 5/15/2012, 8:26 PM
what a shit suit , shit vehicles aslo

its a shame how fanboys dont care how there favorite characters are presented
thewolfx - 5/15/2012, 8:28 PM
i still dont get how 8 years have past or w,e and he hasnt upgraded his shitty suit

but nolanites will suck up anything
antonio - 5/15/2012, 8:31 PM
I do have to say the emblem on his chest looks more clear than it did in The Dark Knight.
thewolfx - 5/15/2012, 8:50 PM
