Tonight, I saw The Dark Knight Rises. And I think, Chris Nolan, you have a beautiful mind. I absolutely adore your Batman trilogy. JGL and Tom Hardy, I <3 you!

Rush Limbaugh, you, are an idiot who is grasping at straws just so you can complain about something. The character Bane is not a political shot at Mitt Romney, Bain Capital, and Bain & Company. Bane was created way before Mitt Romney even entered the political arena. So, Rush, you need to get over yourself and this idea because people who believe it, if there even are any, are seriously not all there in the head.
Is it just me or does Blake seem to have some background/characteristics similar to the first three? (occupation, parents, and the ability to figure out who batman is) Maybe I'm reading too much into it.

No, I don't think you are at all! That was one of my favorite things about the film, that Nolan managed to take bits and pieces from Dick, Jason, Tim and Terry and use them as a starting point for a character who is entirely his own person. Like an ur-Robin. :)
Ya, I wanted to squee when I noticed it. Lol! But what part of Blake did Nolan take from Terry? I never did get the chance to watch/read BB all that much.
I've watched very little BB, but the basic setup is that Bruce has retired from the world in bitterness (and has a cane, lol) and Terry basically is his wake-up call to tell him that he has to get involved in the world again. So some of the same feeling beneath it!
Ah, I see. That makes a lot of sense. I never really thought of that before because of Bruce's age difference between the two series and who Blake is really supposed to be. But if they hadn't said that DKR was the last movie, I could totally see the next one following more of BB now. I read that Christian Bale wouldn't do another Batman film if Robin appeared in the series. So while technically DKR already violated that, it was really minor and if Nolan were to make another movie based on BB, then it would sidestep Christian Bale's claim because they can just keep Blake more along the lines of Terry. While it's technically true, I don't know if Bale would see it that way as he already didn't really approve of Blake's role at the end of DKR. Oh well. Haha! It really is too bad that Nolan and Bale what to see someone else do a reboot but at the same time, I'm down for that too.
