I have my flashlight with me! I'll shine it across the gap between the buildings. You can walk along the beam and join me!'

    Puh. Why be long-winded when you can be succinct?

    I think I'd rather watch the new Batman.
    Not as wordy.

    Yes, Batman will have his back broken just like in the comic books, and the story will end on a very dark, tragic note that will be remembered for years to come. I'd put a hefty sum of money on that fact.

    The crippling of Batman is pretty much a given. They wouldn't have used Bane as the antagonist otherwise.
    I've also read that the major throwdown between the two is shockingly brutal.

    The thesis of the series was laid out within the opening of Begins with Liam Neeson in the Asian prison.
    This franchise hasn't been about Batman per se, but rather his symbol and legacy.

    I doubt the ending will be "dark." It's more or less about giving Bruce Wayne an arc.
    The motif of ascension denotes "salvation" or "redemption" at the end of his run.

    One thing that I've been wondering is this: What does Bane represent thematically?

    The Joker was chaos incarnate.
    Scarecrow was Fear.

    What is Bane's tie-in theme?

    Bane is the instrument used to bring forth Batman's demise, heroically or not.

    I was thinking among those lines. A sort of "reckoning" if you will.
    Gotham is a haven of sin, with Batman at the top of the heap.

    An apocalyptic Angel of Death has come to punish the wicked.

    I really hope this movie goes where I think it will.
    If it isn't as cerebral or ballsy as The Dark Knight, I'll be disappointed.

    It'll be good to see him die.
