I thought she was great in "Love and Other Drugs".

Where was the Wayne house filmed at? Not sure if Bruce has finished rebuilding it yet.

re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan)

According to IMDb, it was filmed in Buckinghamshire, England (Mentmore Towers). And I think Wayne Manor and the Batcave will both be done for TDKR. That would be somewhat disappointing to me if they aren't (the cave especially).

I would assume the time from the end of BB to the beginning of TDKR would be enough time to rebuild Wayne Manor and get the batcave set up (at least partially).

That would be Mentmore Towers.

Quote:
The house has appeared in many films, including Terry Gilliam's Brazil (1985), Slipstream (1989), Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut (1999), Philip Kaufman's Marquis de Sade biopic Quills (2000), The Mummy Returns (2001), Ali G Indahouse (2002), Johnny English (2003), and Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins (2005) where it was used as the gothic Wayne Manor.

In 1982 director Howard Guard filmed the Roxy Music video to "Avalon", starring Sophie Ward, at the house. It also served as the filming location of Enya's Dan Nathan-directed "Only If.." (1997) and the Spice Girls Howard Greenhalgh-directed "Goodbye" (1998) music videos.

re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan)

It doesn't make a boatload of sense to me for the cave to be done, especially if he's on leave from being a superhero. Or did I misinterpret that, kind of set it up for Gotham to take care of themselves.

Doesn't mean he wouldn't have the equipment set up for surveillance and such. All the end of TDK meant was the police would be chasing him rather than aiding him since everyone except Gordon (plus Lucius and Alfred of course) believes Batman is a cop killer.

He'll probably do some soul searching (after all the love of his life was killed) but he's not giving up being Batman since, as Gordon said, "he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him because he can take it." He'll be working even more underground thus needing to step up surveillance.

Right, there's a little left to interpretation at the end of TDK. We'll see.

The police are chasing Batman, not Bruce. So Bruce could keep working on the house and just dust off the batcave.

re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan)

I'm not sure why it's so improbable. The mansion was worked on throughout the time between BB and TDK (which was, what, 6 months - 1 year) and TDK and TDKR which who knows how much time will have passed for it to be mostly completed. And as Ranger suggested, Bruce will be able to do some work and no doubt Alfred will have some free time as well (with the help of Lucius).

I think i'll be disappointed if we don't get a fully realized Bat Cave after 3 movies.

Agreed. I didn't care for the Bat Warehouse all that much.

I thought it was a clever temporary HQ for Batman. But the batcave needs to be there and I believe it will for the third movie.

Bat Cave will be to TDKR what the Bat Pod was to TDK - badass.

Narratively, it made perfect sense. And it's totally inkeeping with the comics where Batman would have several "safehouses" when he was far from the Cave. But it wasn't as visually striking as the Cave was (even in its "bare" state) in BB.

re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan)

All of this talk, and not one mention of the big daddy: The Batmobile.

I hope Nolan has used the past couple years to refine the design of the batmobile, tumbler, bat-tank from hell, whatever you wanna call it. I LOVE the design they used for the past two movies, but I'm anxious to see what kind of refined, cleaner, and more city-suited a 'final' batmobile in Nolan's universe will look like.

That article adds literally nothing to the discussion. We've discussed all that ourselves for the most part.

I'm still sore over the destruction of the Tumbler. A little less so after I found out they meant to destroy it in BB (since it at least got to be in two movies rather than the intended one).

But, yeah, it'd be interesting to see a refined Tumbler. Not particularly interested in seeing the Batpod ever again. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either.

I liked the Batpod for what it was. An emergency escape vehicle type of thing. It's not the Batmobile in terms of anything besides a quick release vehicle for emergencies...I enjoyed for that for what it was and the action sequence that stemmed from it. No way would i choose it over the Batmobile though. The Batmobile...is the motherfucking Batmobile.

That was my feeling about it. I liked the action sequence in which it was used (which is why I didn't hate it) but it felt like one and done type thing to me.

re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan)

The way it should be. It's a vehicle that will rarely be used by Batman...and he used it in TDK. I don't think we'll see again. Though in the back of our minds we know that in the Nolan universe...Batman has a fucking escape vehicle...just makes him cooler.

re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan)

Everyone talking about "the one Batpod scene" seem to forget he rides around on it as his main conveyance for the second half of the film. Remember the very end? The shot that Gordon narrates over? Yeah, that's right.

It's a fun vehicle, but I'd like to see a new Batmobile. And while we're wishing, why not a Batwing?

I'm surprised no one is talking about the casting shake-up.

Well, it makes sense. The Batmobile was destroyed. What else was he going to use? I expect he'll have a new vehicle for this one.

I grew to LOVE the Tankmobile over the 2 films and was sad to see it go. If I can throw around the "Nolan-verse" phrase here, Bruce would probably stay with the same design, but with MAJOR upgrades. In other words, for the most part the Tankmobile would stay the same in all three films with lots a PRACTICAL add-ons.

Frankly, I don't need to see a new batmoble. The Tankmobile is a reasonable armored vehicle for Bats in the "Nolan-verse"
