    True, it was a great movie, in spite of Ledger dying halfway through and being replaced by three other actors. They also did a damn fine job of working the changes in appearance into the story, instead of CGIing Ledger's face onto his stunt double (something I read they briefly considered before Depp and company stepped in, and a solution I'm glad they didn't follow through with).

    But still completely overshadowed. You'd be amazed by how many people have never even heard of "Imaginarium", and think Dark Knight was his last film.

    Not true. Harvey Dent got maimed, badly.

    when Jim carry is in a movie it's bound to be better, not to mention that he almost took the whole show for him self

    Thor is actually probably the most relevant movie to the plot, as it establishes who Loki is and what his deal even is

    but it's not hard to pick up on, either

    Two-Face doesn't count! That's the whole point of the character! But, anyway, you barely saw anything, especially compared to stuff like Batgirl getting crippled, the second Robin being murdered, or even in the Batman Beyond flashback where Batman gets shot in the leg and the third Robin gets tortured.

    Never watched Batman Beyond, so no idea about that.

    And I'm yanking your chain. Re-read my first response- I said "I can't argue with this". That means I agree with you. You're defending your position anyway?

    BTW, those two characters? Wasn't kidding. Batgirl's not paralyzed anymore, and Robin II is back from the dead. Both are part of DC rebooting their entire universe to simplify continuity and royally mucking it up again. That's comics for you.

    Actually, I believe that was before the New 52 thing DC is doing. If I'm remembering right, the second Robin was brought back through the Lazerus pits and went completely psycho and became Red Hood.

    And yeah, I remember that Batman Beyond movie. That one also had someone getting killed too.

    And I'll agree with Jim Carry. While the movies did loose a little from the Tim Burton flicks, it also felt, I don't know, more campy. Which hey, is fine with me.

    Those movies also had a pretty darn great Alfred in them.

    Batman Beyond Spoilers: (combination of info from episodes, the movie Return of the Joker and the comic series)

    Spoiler


    Thing is, the recent line of comics tried to fit in the Beyond story into the existing DC timeline, which causes a lot of inconsistencies, mostly with Jason and Damian.

    My 6 yr old kept asking when the movie will end... and he loves super hero movies and cartoons... so this is really how good it was.

    There were three or four scenes that were funny and they all involved the HULK!!

    Rest was just OK and nothing more.

    I don't think the DARK KNIGHT is going to be beaten any time soon .. Even with Spider Man 4

    Might have. "He got better" still stands though. :P

    To be honest, there weren't many DC titles that I read, and pretty much all of them got canceled in the reboot. I only read the first couple of issues of the New 52 titles before giving up completely. Some of the were good, but trying to keep track of what happened to who and when when half of it suddenly never happened after all... not worth the effort, since they'll probably be rebooting again in a couple of years.

    I still can't believe they axed the First Wave titles for this crap. We finally get a good Doc Savage comic again, and the publishers have to drop it mid-plot for something happening in a bunch of unrelated titles.

    DC doesn't have a Timeline. DC has a twisted, scrambled mess which makes the Gordian Knot look like a simple bow.

    I saw a poster for the new Spider-Man yesterday. His head now looks like a red basketball, IMO.
