So, for all of his training and his sworn duty to fight the criminal element in all manner to avenge the loss of his father and mother, Bruce put the cowl on for just a little over two and a half years total and ran away when the going got tough?
Actually, TDK takes place 6 months after Begins. So you could say that Bruce was Batman for well under 12 months when you add it all together. Kind of a downer when you think about it.
As for Man of Steel, I would've passed out if they played the first few notes of the John Williams' theme at the 1:01 mark of the trailer....but I have to accept that they've moved on from that. For all of the reality that I've come to expect from Nolan having his fingerprints on the movie, it looks like its going to be pretty fantastical. We'll look back at Superman 1 & 2 as being much more "grounded." The themes and characters in MoS might have more depth, but my fear is that the movie will be a huge CGI fest that will try to overcompensate due to how shitty and boring Superman Returns was. I guess I hate that the Last Son of Krypton really isn't the last son. It seems more like an alien invasion movie than a story set around how would the world react if a man suddenly appeared who could theoretically solve some of our biggest problems. That's the realism I hoped they were going to go for.
That said, I can't wait to see it.
