    I have the suspicion that they're going to slightly rework Bane's story so that Bane is a prisoner that Batman was personally responsible for putting in prison. The Nolan films seem to have a running theme going about the seeming futility of, or facing the consequences of, Batman's vigilante crusade. A formally much more benign criminal becoming incensed and roided up, an ultimately more dangerous, as a result of his experience in prison sounds just like the kind of theme Nolan would work with in his Batman movies.

    Hehe, dude, those remarks are virtually verbatim what everyone on the internet said after Heath Ledger was anounced to be playing Joker.

    I'm happy though. I've had my fingers crossed for Anne Hathaway ever since rumors floated that she was auditioning. She is one of the best young actresses Hollywood has atm.
    January 8, 2011 10:09 am I think that Jason Aaron needs to put on some big boy pants, you know? His article comes across as rather petty, the kind of rant that would appear in the Newsarama forums and would be swiftly forgotten if he didn't have any sort of moderate renown.

    In the first place, he tries to validate his own rant by characterizing Alan Moores statement as a "rant". Which it by no means was at all. Moore was being interviewed on the topic and he answered, and he is the type of man who give robust answers. Most people are ready to accept that Alan Moore is just being a cranky asshole because that is the default perception of him they're ready to have.

    But aside from that b/s, Aaron's main offense seems to be Moore's dismissal of todays crop of creators working in comics. Alan Moore clearly clarifies that his dismisal is a rheotrical supposition wondering why, if there were such "top-flight" creators, is it so desirable to relegate their talents to producing lame derivative works of a dated work?

    Even if Alan Moore does personally think that Aaron's work is crappy without even reading it, so what? If he's so serious about his work, then some flippant criticism shouldnt phase him at all, and he should just carry on not feeling the need to a publicly cry about what some other guy said about him.

    So, what did the show do to you that you're so determined to paint it five colors of failure and see it crash and burn? You're sarcasm and high regard for the ny times is noted, but I wasnt talking about the times. In fact, their article about the show was particularly unjudgemental.

    I stand by what I said, every report i find about the audience's attitude indicates that they were rather pleased and had fun with the show when it was working.

    Yea, and it also reports that:

    "Most of the night’s major flying sequences — which make up a relative fraction of the show — went off without a hitch, with children and some adults squealing in delight."

    and that the one bitchy catcall as booed down by the rest of the audience.

    The "negative" reports you read are simply sensationalizing the unreadyness of the show. A fact that preview audiences were advised about before the show.
    December 1, 2010 6:35 pm Sometimes I suspect that the comic book community wants this production to fail But from the sounds of it the audience at the preview had a blast.

    "The publishers have to take a long look at how people perceive their product and how to generate the feeling that the works are worth money."

    That's the crux of it right there, Tom. Once upon a time businesses had at opportunity to withhold their product unless they received something in return. Now that the means to make quality copies of the product is in the hands of any common consumer, the moment they distribute something that ability to withhold is lost to them.

    It it a tough position. Its the condundrum of information age. And it makes rendering a sense of value to these kinds of products a difficult task.

    I wouldnt presume to defend thievery and copyright infringement, nor do i know what an ideal model of the business-consumer relationship in this new age would be, but i dont think demonizing digital pirates as bullies and thieves is necessarily a productive part of the solution.

    Maybe so. I merely suspect, knowing the nature of fanboy behavior. Either way, I think its evident the majority of opinion so far is either positive or "wait and see".
