I chose C, but I don't really know. I'm in middle of B and C.

#3 Edited by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

Between B and C but a little closer to B. I think it'll be great and one of the best films this year, but I don't expect it to be better than The Dark Knight. I would love to be pleasantly surprised though.

Im expecting it to be better than the Dark Knight.  My expectations are way too high but I dont really care....  Itll be amazing if the movie manages to go beyond them.  

#5 Posted by Carryboy (750 posts) -

Hmmm, my opinion on what my opinion will be....

#6 Posted by Redbullet685 (6090 posts) -

Definitely a mix of B and C (though I chose C for my answer in the poll). I doubt it will be as good as the Dark Knight, but I still think it'll probably be one of the best movies of the year.

#8 Posted by SamStrife (1286 posts) -

Judging by the trailers for the film. I think it will be a piece of garbage which lasts way too long (2 Hour 44minute run time.) And I really liked the Dark Knight.

Yeah, exactly.

#13 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8607 posts) -

Potentially B, probably C.
 
Stoked, nonetheless.

#14 Posted by HistoryInRust (6407 posts) -

It won't be as good as Green Lantern.

Kidding.

#15 Posted by ProfessorEss (7523 posts) -

I think it'll be a great movie but I have a hard time seeing how a Batman movie without Joker can possibly trump a Batman movie with the Joker - especially when said Joker was portrayed so excellently.

#16 Posted by DeF (4979 posts) -

Other: I hope it will be better than The Dark Knight which I did not like very much (lacked focus, was way too long and drawn out and kinda full of itself).

#17 Posted by benspyda (2051 posts) -

Not a huge fan of the Bane character and don't have super high expectations from the trailers. I enjoyed the last 2 a lot though and would happily be proven wrong.

#18 Posted by probablytuna (3832 posts) -

I think it'll be as good as The Dark Knight, or maybe even better. I believe in Nolan.

#19 Posted by Creamypies (4091 posts) -

Nolan hasn't disappointed me yet, so I'm confident it'll be pretty incredible. Whether it'll be up to The Dark Knight standards, it's hard to say.

#20 Posted by desolation15 (113 posts) -

I think it's going to be a movie that'll try to recapture the magic sauce of the last film. Only to over do it and become tedious half way through. I'm getting Batman fatigue. I can just see myself, sitting there in the dark crowed theater; watching the second vehicle chase or the third beat'em up scene with uptempo orchestra music blaring all the while I'm on my phone setting up my roster on Big Win Baseball.

Or maybe it'll be great, what the hell do I know.

#21 Posted by MEATBALL (3505 posts) -

The trailers have left me a bit unsure, but I have faith that it'll be a movie that I really enjoy because I've yet to see a Nolan film that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed.

#22 Posted by Daiphyer (1352 posts) -

I don't think it can be as good as The Dark Knight. The reason why The Dark Knight was so goddamn good was Heath Ledger.

#23 Edited by PSNgamesun (414 posts) -

I think it will be good, very good but I doubt it will top TDK. I just don't invision Nolan filming a bad film with that said tho I think it will have flaws especially the most common one; when a director wants to go epic they invest in to many characters resulting in underdeveloped new ones. Hopefully I'm wrong n the movie surprises me.

#24 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

I picked "I don't know"

#25 Edited by BoOzak (999 posts) -

I've hated the trailers so far, and Bane seems like kind of a dull villian, but i'm not the biggest Batman fan. I enjoyed "The Dark Knight" but I couldnt stand "Begins". I think (for me at least) it'll be somewhere inbetween those two.

But 2 hours & 44 minutes? That's Michael Bay level of filler...

#26 Posted by Deadmanforking (579 posts) -

G. WIll be good, but just as overrated as the other two.

#27 Posted by Gamer_152 (14113 posts) -

I'm expecting it to be a great film, but one that won't be able to quite live up to the quality of The Dark Knight. That's pretty speculative though.

I expect a good movie but a bad batman movie. It seems batman is just kinda there in all the trailers I have seen

#29 Edited by NaDannMaGoGo (338 posts) -

Well Christopher Nolan is my absolute favorite movie director and I love his work so much. Especially Memento, Inception and The Prestige. After that comes The Dark Knight, followed by The Following (no pun intended) and it closes out with Batman Begins and Insomnia, those 2 I like the least, still far from bad.
 
So I just can't imagine this movie not being at least "very good". Better than TDK? Who knows, everyone will find out for himself! edit: or herself!

#30 Posted by zungerman090 (311 posts) -

I think it will be pretty good. I am not really digging this whole "We are 99%" message that Catwoman seemed to be giving. Eh, after watching a behind the scene featurette, I am kind of stoked.

#31 Posted by Imsorrymsjackson (850 posts) -

How the fuck can I answer that question, what is my opinion on what my opinion will be? I think I will think it might be good, I think.

#32 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

If I were to tell you, my opinion that would become.

#33 Posted by Bell_End (1203 posts) -

its going to be either the best fucking film ever!!!! or the worst fucking film ever!!!!!! that just the way the internet works these days. it won't just be good or ok.

#34 Posted by VierasTalo (940 posts) -

Better than Inception. That doesn't require much though. Hopefully it'll also beat TDK. It won't be better than Begins, since I hate the modern-day Chicago-look the movie has instead of the actually somewhat original Gotham in Begins. But whatever, just let it come and be what it is.

#35 Posted by NaDannMaGoGo (338 posts) -

@ VierasTalo
I suppose our taste differs by a large degree from your comment but still, let's give it a try:
Batman Begins better than TDK?
How's that? I don't even like the action in Batman Begins with all that close up camera work where you can't figure shit out. And I just don't see an aspect that's worse in TDK really.

#36 Posted by BaneFireLord (2958 posts) -

I hope it's amazing, but I'm tempering my expectations. D.

#37 Posted by Zaccheus (1806 posts) -

"What do you think your opinion will be"

I'm so confused about this thread. Pre-opinions? Really?

#38 Posted by ShadowKnight508 (665 posts) -

While I do have high hopes, I just don't see Nolan capturing lighting in a bottle for a 2nd time and making this more awesome than The Dark Knight was. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that TDKR will be bad, but I just don't see it surpassing the epic movie that it follows in the franchise.

#39 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11415 posts) -

A all the way!

#40 Posted by johncallahan (620 posts) -

Really really liked Batman Begins, really really disliked The Dark Knight (I know heresy), haven't liked the stuff I've seen/heard about Dark Knight Rises. Ready to be disappointed, hoping I'm pleasantly surprised.

#41 Posted by CrossTheAtlantic (1146 posts) -

I don't know yet?

Either way I'm going to avoid the internet for a week. I can already feel the giant tides of backlash and the opposing tides of fanboyism getting ready to crash and tear us all apart. Plus you have the Avengers lovers, just waiting to jump in the fray. Everything is going to be terrible and angry in a week or so, regardless of the quality of the film, I'm afraid.

#42 Posted by SathingtonWaltz (2053 posts) -

I'm thinking and hoping that this film will have a lot more to do with "Batman Begins" than "The Dark Knight", thematically at least. My gut feeling tells me that "The Dark Knight Rises" will be better than TDK, but I'm not sure about topping Batman Begins. (my personal favorite is Batman Begins obviously).

#43 Posted by SeanFoster (889 posts) -

I'm sure I'll like it. A part of me is glad the trilogy is over, I'd rather see a new movie from Christopher Nolan like Prestige or Inception than a 3rd Batman movie.

#44 Posted by Gruff182 (877 posts) -

I'm nowhere near as excited for this movie, mostly because I can't see any villain beating that Joker, in anything.

The trailers are pretty good though. (except the bit at the end that ruins it for me, how the fuck is that tank supposed to have any kind of aerodynamics)

I want to love it though.

#45 Posted by Excast (1041 posts) -

I imagine it will be good, but I can see it falling into the same sort of letdown that we had with Spider Man 3.  Namely, a let down from a really classic villain to something that fewer people care about coupled with the general problem of trying to jam way too many new stories and subplots together.

#46 Posted by Soap (3645 posts) -

I really hope this film is great, although my expectations have been so high that I will probably be disappointed no matter what, which is really dumb.

Not the guy you were replying to, but I also vastly prefer Batman Begins to TDK. Here's why: (DISCLAIMER: THESE ARE OPINIONS! WHOA!)

Batman Begins captured the brooding and moody atmosphere of Gotham and Batman perfectly. The films focus on fear was spot on for Batman, and the action scenes perfectly reflected Batman "turning fear against those who prey on the fearful." The pacing was tighter, the action though not as much of a spectacle actually made sense. Everything Batman did in BB made perfect sense, they even did a good job explaining why he had "bat ears". The films plot, while less complex, was more focused, direct, and not all over the place like TDK. And I really can't stress enough just how great the pacing was in Batman Begins. Gotham actually felt like Gotham and Batman actually felt and acted like Batman. If you watch the two films back to back it's almost startling how different they feel. In TDK, the moody dark Gotham is completely gone. Batman for some reason no longer uses stealth and fear to fight crime, in favor of just showing up (THEN YOU'RE GONNA LOVE ME). TDK was a fantastic spectacle, but when you watch it a few more times you start to really see through all that. Nearly ever action scene in TDK I queston "why did Bruce do that? That wouldn't actually work. etc.", where as in BB the action makes sense. I don't remember a single scene in TDK where Batman actually uses stealth tactics. In the penthouse party scene, he just shows up. In the nightclub scene he just shows up. The only scene in TDK that made sense for Batman not to use stealth was near the end when he was frantically searching for the Joker. That actually made sense, he didn't have time to do anything intricate.

As long as it's as good as Batman Begins, the last good Batman movie. The Dark Knight was primarily a good Joker movie, set in Chicago masquerading as Gotham City.

#49 Posted by Captain_Felafel (1602 posts) -

I think I'll wait to see it before I, you know, form an opinion?

#50 Edited by Shaunage (733 posts) -

I think I'll watch it and then I'll know. I assume I'm really going to like it, but who knows?
