    I agree. Nolan's Batman series has been fantastic. Only the super crazy nerds don't like it. Given its colored history, the next eight movies or so will suck, and then we get 3 good ones again! :slayer:

    Not really on the same note but I'd love to see a really great batman deco style to put on my next ice hockey goalie mask.

    Fantastic. A very true-to-the-comic rendition.

    Batman Year One is pretty good but it was really Gordon-centric but I still liked it. So far, I haven't hated any DC Comics animated films.

    I understand both points, I think there is a possibility, and people have to break their mindset of the 'freeze gun' and 'freeze suit'. Victor could be a scientist who is specialized in cryogenics. The city of Gotham or some criminals screw something up and his wife gets trapped in a block of ice or something. Victor takes revenge on those responsible, but ultimately decides Gotham is responsible. To add to it he could have been working at Wayne Industries or something and partially blame them. His weapon may not be a physical gun that shoots freeze rays, but could be something that has to do with cryogenics, although that doesn't necessarily mean it will cause things to freeze, since there is a such thing as a cryogenic nuke.

    Anyway there are a whole realm of possibilities, Nolan wanted to keep things close to realism, without stretching things too much. He didn't want the Riddler, because honestly the Riddler has a persona that resembles the Jokers, and he didn't want to do that movie again.

    Trust the Nolan, every movie he has made so far has been great and very enjoyable.

    Also I just noticed the movie is set 8 years after TDK.

    In a way I like Gordon's story a lot more, having to do what Batman does without breaking any rules. Year One reminds me of Todd McFarlane's Spawn, the unfinished series that was shown on HBO during the 90s which is a very good thing.

    You didn't read the comic book ever, did you?

    Nope. It was still good but It still didn't feel like a true Batman film. Maybe Bats/Bruce not being voiced by Conroy had something to do with it as well.

    The reason I ask is because the comic book features Gordon equally as heavily as it does Bruce. I will agree that Conroy is who I judge all animated Batman films by, though. His voice is awesome.

    This is true. It's a great read.
