As for the bomb in Avengers, I had more of an issue with the inclusion of the cliche 'Shadowy Council Of People Who Sit In Poorly Lit Rooms And Rule The World' (thanks Spoony). And the nuke was just a last minute add-on to the movie because they were in it. The bomb here was the major threat in the movie once Bane took over the city.

I really want to make a screen-accurate replica of Bane's mask.

Also, has anybody posted this yet...

I was thinking about that too while watching the movie.

Also, the "Death by exile" reminded me of the old "death by snoo snoo" joke.

One thing I was wondering while watching it...how long has Bruce actually been active as Batman? The first movie is when he first started, and the second is, what? A year later? Less? And right after that, Bruce hangs up Batman for 8 years and only becomes him again for a day or two, is away healing for three months (IIRC) and then comes back for a day.

I was wondering that too. I do get the impression that there were a few years between Begins and Dark Knight though, just judging by the opening of Dark Knight and how much Gotham had changed. It was enough time for Batman to be firmly established in peoples minds and make a major impact on crime.

Do they actually say how much time has passed before The Dark Knight?

When he addresses the mobster council, the Joker makes a statement about how much bolder they all were a year ago, before the appearance of The Batman.
"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."

Ah, that must be what I was remembering. I was pretty sure they mention at one point it had been a year.

So he's really only Batman for 1 year in the trilogy.

Yup. Still crap writing, regardless of the thread it's posted in.
