  1. That timeline is absolutely, fantastically PRICELESS!

    Shouldn’t the “Portal cake toppers be married “’til Death do them pOrt”?

    The Batman Trilogy Villain poster is extremely cool… ;)

    • We’ve added your joke, Archaeon ;-)

      • Cool! I’m honored… :D

    • Except that it doesn’t have Ra’as al Ghul.

      • True, and it also does not have Two-Face or Talia…so. No one claimed it was all-inclusive; it simply provides a neat, stylized representation of the three different stages of the films (as many have seen them): fear, chaos, betrayal/redemption.

        Your point…?

        • I thought scarecrow and joker made two face(s).

  2. Bane wasnt much of a villain, being given orders and being taken out so easily. Talia ruined his character
    Scarecrow was really cool to me even thought they made him a wimp, Joker was the best of course.
    Two face was done the best he could.

    So aesthetically, scarecrow with the mask and gas.
    Coolest, Joker, though I feel he was made to look cooler on purpose.

    • I don’t see how everyone assumes that bane was given orders…. why can’t talia be his partner? I doubt talia was like hey use catwomen to get batman in the sewers then we Will send him to prison. obviously bane was extremely intelligent I don’t see why partners are so far fetched.

      • I’ve been wondering that, too. Bane showed, throughout the film, that he was more than capable (and more than willing) to carry out the original plan of the League of Shadows. He wasn’t Talia’s pet, even after the big reveal; he simply was more deeply layered than a simple terroristic, dictatorial bully some people may have viewed him as being (including Bruce, initially).

        Well said, trey.

        • Oh, and Cody…I haven’t forgotten that I still need to respond to you on another thread about why John Blake IS a significant and interesting (and well-thought-out) character in TDKR. I’ll be doing so at some point this week…

          • …but he failed at everything he did…
            and it makes it look like he becomes batman only because he knows who he is.

      • point is we dont see him do much of what he wants besides the stuff involving her plans.
        Shes the head of the league and its her plan of “revenge”.
        Bane is more of the implementer of the plan and the “face” until her reveal, which then sort of undermines his character as it leads people to think he was doing her will, which it probably was because the film never established a personal vendetta for bane to have against bats.
        (Other than sleeping with the girl he loves*wink*)
        rhas-betrayed the shadows
        scarecrow-stopping his drug trades
        joker-wants to show expose gothams evil and just personally wants to get batman
        bane-???mercenary?? kinda does the same as joker but not as well or interesting.

  3. Aw man, those Portal 2 posters are absolutely hilarious!
    And that timeline is just awesome… I’m hoping most of that crazy $#!t from the movies never happen in real life though…

  4. The trailer for the Nippled Knight Rises actually makes the old Batman and Robin movie look good

    • Are you sure about that? Go sit on the naughty step and think about what you’ve just said. (^-^)

    • As good as it could ever be, but it still looks wonky.

      • Yeah. The 60′s show had it’s charm, but Schumacher’s B&R despite being filled with so much, really doesn’t give you much to work with. But I suppose the Batcave was crying out for disco lights. (^-^)

  5. Is it just me or does scarecrow in the first picture look like Killer Croc?

  6. I actually wanna see Batman and Robin again

  7. I think a few of those aperture signs might pop up around the work place tonight…..hope I don’t get “terminated”

  8. The timeline has Logan’s Run saying that they terminate everyone at 21, of course this is the age in the remake, but as it’s not been made yet then it should still be 30 I thought.

    Pulp Fighter 2: Well I think Butch has more power, speed and defence than that I think, remember he did kill the other boxer.


  9. The timeline is awesome. It should be a series on TV which intertwines previously created movies and brings back classic actors.
