WTF DO YOU MEAN NO SPOILER? BRUCE WAYNE IS BATMAN?

@demonhunter15
He just brought it to the manor, Alfred brought it to the cave.

GuardianAngel - 5/29/2012, 9:43 PM
Has anyone else been asked why Batman wasn't in The Avengers?
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 5/29/2012, 9:49 PM
The best was The Dark Knight kids book. I remember reading that in Barnes n Nobles after the movie was released. Pure comedy gold.
GuardianAngel - 5/29/2012, 9:51 PM
@SuspenseSmith Whenever I'm asked that, first I think the person is just stupid. But then I remember I just know too much.

@Guardian, the second time I went to see the Avengers, some ladies in line behind me thought that Green Lantern was in the Justice League, then were convinced that he was actually an Avenger, and then got so excited to see him join the team in the sequel. I just didn't have the heart to tell them how wrong they were...

So they've heard of the cat burglar already? Wouldn't that imply that she's robbed many people before (presumably as a maid)? I wonder what was Wayne's process of hiring her...maybe he knew all along that she was the burglar.

@SuperBat77 It'd be funny if they get even more confused about the new DC logo.

Still waiting on the pics from Spider-Man's Cameo.

Not one person made a joke about the pearl necklace
What is this site Cumming to (pun intended)
NeoBaggins - 5/29/2012, 10:54 PM
I am Batman. My secret lair is the Batcave. I own a mansion and a Yacht.
DrMarvelite23 - 5/29/2012, 10:55 PM
And have batman and supermans mother have the same name
TheCommander - 5/29/2012, 11:32 PM
I hope this book is a page-by-page adaptation of TDKR. It will be, hands down, the greatest film ever made.
Jacad - 5/30/2012, 12:22 AM
love it! it's even DARKER, even GRITTIER, even more NOLAN-IER than Nolan's Nolanverse of the caped crusader ^_^

p.s. can't wait for TDKR!

If I had kids, I would have no problem with reading them this book before bedtime.

Because this is Batman related, this beats out Everybody Poops as my favorite children's book... well almost. :P

Also, when Selina Kyle steals the necklace in the movie, she's wearing a black dress. Her cover in the movie is that of a party guest, not a maid. And why is the quality of art so great on the pages where Selina is robbing Bruce compared to the others? The rest of the book should look exactly like that.

LMFAO WTF does Lucius look like a f*ckin' cracker??? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA W... T... F... F*ck whoever made and is releasing that shit.
DukeAcureds - 5/30/2012, 6:48 AM
For the last eight years, no-one has seen or heard from him..
That is, until now.
Anyone else get Dark Knight Returns colored shivers when reading those first coupla pages?
thatdylhooper - 5/30/2012, 7:12 AM
U mean there gonna draw from the original tdkr? That'd be aaawesome. Idk what the fuss is about, that book looks dope! Really breaks down the concepts makes it easy for me to understand
SmellofDuty - 5/30/2012, 9:44 AM
Batman looks like he's taking out Fantomex in that first picture.
sinister84 - 5/30/2012, 11:03 AM
Who had the brilliant idea of making a kids' book out of a Batman movie?
ralfinader - 5/30/2012, 12:08 PM
PsyBoy - 5/29/2012, 9:41 PM
That doesn't even look like anne hathaway. bad art!

C'mon man, if they drew her to look like Hathoway it would make everyone wonder why Mr. Ed was robbing Bruce Wayne!
ThePowerCosmic - 5/30/2012, 4:46 PM
Bruce Wayne made at least some of the gadgets on his utility belt. Remember him grinding the batstars in Batman Begins! They are teaching the children all wrong!
ThePowerCosmic - 5/30/2012, 4:48 PM
@ hellfire

I say not big enough, and I'm a white guy.
PacificOrca - 5/30/2012, 11:13 PM
Batman in the Nolan incarnation should not be marketed to kids. As Lucius Fox emphasizes in TDK, "This is WRONG."
SpiderFan35 - 5/31/2012, 10:26 AM
@ralfinader: lol. It's true, the fact that it does not look too much like Hathaway is a good thing, and was probably done on purpose.
