Batman Begins: Batman Begins explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knight's emergence as a force for good in Gotham. In the wake of his parents' murder, disillusioned industrial heir Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. He returns to Gotham and unveils his alter-ego: Batman, a masked crusader who uses his strength, intellect and an array of high tech deceptions to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city. The Dark Knight: The follow-up to Batman Begins, The Dark Knight reunites director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on crime. With the help of Lt. Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves effective, but soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker, who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces Batman closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante. Heath Ledger stars as archvillain The Joker, and Aaron Eckhart plays Dent. Maggie Gyllenhaal joins the cast as Rachel Dawes. Returning from Batman Begins are Gary Oldman as Gordon, Michael Caine as Alfred and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox. The Dark Knight Rises: It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.

I want to see the Heath Ledger audition

They're probably screen tests instead of auditions.

Costume tests, is what they are.

he looks massive in that first picture

Heath Ledger didn't audition. Was given the part by Nolan before a script was even written.

I have doubts when Bane was picked as a villain in DKR but Nolan's version kicked some serious ass! The movie Dark Knight Rises reminds me of Frank Millers' Dark Knight Returns. Bane looks and acts a lot like the Mutant leader from the comics who broke an old Batman who came out of retirement while the mutant gang were watching. And the scene where the mutant gang let the criminals out in prison to bring chaos to Gotham streets seemed a lot like when Bane let the criminals out of prison too and let them bring chaos to Gotham streets.

While I loved The Dark Knight, there is one major part that I seriously disagreed with...and that was Two Face. Not his existence but the following:
a) His sudden evolution from law biding Harvey Dent to a maniacal two face
b) The quick, forced in, use of the Two Face character.
c) The "Death" of Two Face.

Nolan tried to do too much too quickly with that character. He should been turned loose on the city and just disappeared to cause havoc.

Another problem.... the sudden explanation...Dent is in severe pain, but he is refusing pain medication or any help.

Boy Rachel must be one hell of a lay. She dies and causes Dent to lose his mind, revel in his pain, and become a crazed killer.
And she causes Bruce Wayne to quit being Batman, go into hiding, become a recluse and alienate himself from the entire world.

Striking similarities between Returns and Rises...

I hate to say it, but I think there was something "off" about the Two Face CGI.

A great movie, one of my favorites, but Two Face didn't quite click perfectly.

Tyrant Boss, I confirm your comment.

Are you suggesting that Vin Diesel is a better actor than Tom Hardy?
