    Yeah. This storyline began in 1971; it's been around and recycles and revisited for decades. It's pretty well-established.

    If I ever do read comics I wish to read the Ultimate X-men.
    Whedon's run on The Astonishing X-men was pretty decent.

    I've been keeping my eyes away from reading those theories/predictions. It was not easy to do so.
    Definitely. I was avoiding movie sites and web sites (or at least being careful where my eyes went) for weeks before the movie was released.

    Rewatched the one with The Joker a few days ago. I've decided that Nolan's Batman is lame (his Bruce Wayne does not make a good 'pretend narcissistic playboy,' at all) but his villains are top-notch.

    For some reason, one of my favorite lines from the whole series is Heath Ledger's delivery of one particular sardonic and mockingly awkward "Hi," I think directed toward a mob dude. To have something like that stick out is just amazing.

    I haven't read comic books in years, and I stuck to Marvel, so unless I see it on some animated series or encounter it in a video game, I doubt I'll know anything about some comic book storyline.

    I avoid movie spoilers as well.

    I downloaded a bootleg copy of the movie.
    It was pretty good but about 15 mins into the movie the camera man gets shot.

    Yes. I mean, we've had some reall bad Batmans. I don't think Bale's "bad." But that's one problem with Bale for this role, he doesn't bring something (not sure how to define it) to the role.

    For some reason, one of my favorite lines from the whole series is Heath Ledger's delivery of one particular sardonic and mockingly awkward "Hi," I think directed toward a mob dude. To have something like that stick out is just amazing.
    Honestly. His death really didn't change the fact that Ledger just owned the role as Nolan set it up for that movie, there's a reason why some of his lines (inflection and all) have become part of the public vernacular.

    Wait, when did Wolverine take over the Batman mantle?
    So you noticed too that they ripped off Bats mask to do Wolvie's?

    His first appearance was in Hulk but the face mask was different. I'm not sure whether it was Cockrum's or Byrne's Wolvie that suddenly switched over the Bats style mask... I think Byrne really locked it in though (sometime in '77?).

    I thought it was more like 30.

    I couldn't help but laugh whenever "Batman" showed up with that ridiculous growl of his.
    Batman is supposed to be extremely imposing. Christian just doesn't have that kind of presence.

    Michael Keaton DEFINITELY had it. And he was short, balding and out-of-shape.

    And since we're on the subject of Wolverine: Anybody remember Dark Claw from the mid-90s?



    He was a Batman/Wolverine hybrid during the DC vs. Marvel crossover.

    I knew this person at high-school who would spoil us of surprises. No one laughed at him. Son of a bitch!

    Comics should come in soft copies rather than hard copies. That would make more sense. It's not like a book that has to be carried around since they are too short. Unless you are a collector. I believe most people who read comics are collectors? I could imagine myself as an comic collector if I was from the US or from a country which has better, cheaper and more variety of comic books to be accesses.

    Then again I would get laid much too often to be concerned about comic serieses. Holding on to comics could be a way to holding on to one's childhood in a way. So I guess I'll still be a fan.

    I absolutely loved the movie and loved the ending as well. I read a post of you in this thread that the ending was quite sad. Why so? I think the ending was brilliant? It would have been a classic though -
