Reasons Why Batman Is The Best Superhero Ever
And Why I Think It's Okay For Nolan To Kill Him
I am sure that in my last article, I was not pointed enough, I also didn't think anyone would read what I had to say. I am a Batman Fanatic, not a Comic Book Fanatic, but a true legit Batman Freak.
Batman represents someting that existis in all of us. He holds a special place in our hearts and everyone in the western world at least, has known Batman for over 70 years.
We are raised to accept the limitations that most of us have when it comeone to injustice, and Batman represents someting different that we all wish for. Bruce Wayne is an opportuinist, with a rare obsession with altruism. Bruce wants to see a world where no one would have to experience the hell that he went through.
I have been playing Arkham City and watching year one, Batman Begins and the Dark Knight over and over again. Batman is not an executioner, and does everything he does with only his detective ability and some cool gadgets that have defined Batman, even back in the 60's he always had some sort of Bat dcevice that saved the day.
Thats what I love about Batman, to me he represents something that is in all of us, we just don't have the resources to be able to become Batman, but any of us could become a Batman, with the proper funding and training.
Nolan and his team came in and gave us, for the first time, a batman based in reality. He has the gadgets, but all of them were real and could be obtainined with the right amount of money. I saw a documentary about "Batman Tech" on the History Chanel, it was great, it showed everything, all the way down to summoning bats to come save your ass.
They are going to Reboot Batman, we all know that, and as a fan, I would be upset if they didn't. I hope it's not a TV show, and would like to see someone else tell their Batman Story, not stand on the shoulders of Nolans genius and disapoint all of us.
Super hero movies are like story arks in the comics, and each director gets to tell their version of the Batman Story. I would think that revealing that Bruce Wayne is Batman in the Dark Knight Rises is a classy way to insure that no one will attempt to ride on the coat tails of this briliant adaptation of my favorite character.
I am not a Batman hater, I love Batman, and can't wait to take my son to the Batman arena show whenever it comes to Seattle. I say that to say if you are going to do a real world Batman and you want to end your story, the best way to do it is to simply reveal the identity of Batman.
He can still 'Rise' because the Batman stands for something more then the man behind the mask, because besides, it's not who is is underneath thats is important anyway, but what he does that defines him anyway, and he could "Rise" in the form of Gotham standing up for their city and doing whats right.
From what I can gather from what OIldman is saying, they already made it 8 years without Batman.
I mean if there was peace in Gotham, and Gotham "No Longer Needed Batman" and Batman saves Gotham and ushes in this era of peace in Gotham, then I also do not think that Bruce would go to jail.
I would say that the way that you kill Batman and still allow him to rise as a legend, making him more than just a man, and show how Batman inspired Gotham to devote itself as a community to an ideal than batman rises as something else entirely.
I think this would also put a good closure to the series. I also think that it would put whatever director gets the honor to recreate their own Batman, instead of pick up where Nolan and Team left off.
I hope this sounds like I feel, I love Batman!! I think he is an important part of who we are as a country, at the least he is an important part of who I am as a person. And I think that it would be classy to end Nolan amd Bale's Batman by removing the mask and letting Bruce Wayne live his life in the peacefull Gotham. A Gotham that knows it is safe. Let the world know who he is and liberate him. I think that is a Good ending for Bruce too.
Bruce would finaly be able to drop the playboy front and let the world know who he is. I repeat, Batman Dies and the Dark Knight Rises because Gotham realizes it is safe, and Brice is still there, ready to protect his city.
I might be very wrong, I just think that it is sad tha Nolan, Bale, Freeman, Cain and Oldman are not going to be involved in Batman after this and it feels like a part of Batman is dieing already and it is sad, and it feels like a part of me is dieing with it. So lets make sure that those guys, Batman/Bruce, Mr. Fox, Alfred, and Gordon, live a safe and happy life. Let the Dark Knight Rise by fullfilling it's purpose,protect gotham and create a safe Gotham where criminals who have the good people scared are gone, and the people of Gotham have gained the will to act.
Maybe we are too immature an audience to understand how this would be a classy ending to an epic trilogy. I mean Neo died.... and so did
Trinity, and they really died. I think that at lease Bruce, at least part of the Batman character gets to stay alive. I think that you can "Kill" Batman by simply removing the mask.
