The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Count me as another who is very glad to hear that Nolan is sticking to his guns and going IMAX/HD for TDKR.  3D is fine I guess, but not everything needs to be 3D.

Not surprised that the Riddler isn't going to be in the film... the solving riddles schtick doesn't seem like a good fit with Nolan's Bat-verse.  I guess they could have changed him up, but why bother where there are other bad guys to exploit.

I'm still hoping that they can bring in some new baddies in this movie.  I loved the fact that they started out with Scarecrow and Ra's, and I'm really hoping they decide to showcase someone 'new' in this movie.  Batman has so many great villians, there is a treasure trove to choose from - Black Mask, Clayface, Firefly, Hugo Strange, Killer Croc, Lady Shiva, etc.

I can't see Croc, Clayface, Bane, Mr. Freeze or Poison Ivy... any of the "super" beings.

I'm hoping for something along the lines of Catwoman working for MOB BOSS X.

Just don't do a super-movie killer by having 2+ villains. I prefer to have one showcased, and Nolan's done a good job of that. Sure, Scarecrow had an appearance in TDK, but that's all it was. But it was close to overkill with the Joker and Two-Face in it.

No Riddler - Win!!!

No 3D - Win!!!

Title - will be fine for me if the movie can match it's predecessors and keep the momentum going.

Title rationale theory - Batman killed the cops and a few others according to the "official story" so perhaps coming out from under the villain tag he'd get to keep Dent's rep intact?

Title theory:

Batman's got little blue pills in his utility belt.

Very pleased to hear no Riddler and no 3D.  I have to think Catwoman is the most logical choice for the big bad, but who knows.

I actually like 3-D but it does not have to be with EVERY movie of course.  I really hope they don't go with the Batman has to face 3 villians at the same time crap.  We'll see.

Latest rumor is that Charlize Theron is up for a role in The Dark Knight Rises, and that role is Sarah Essen (love interest for Commissioner Gordon).  Those who have read Batman: Year One will recognize the name.  Another rumored part is that of Julie Madison as a love interest for Bruce Wayne, and a character who in the comics also had several run-ins with Clayface.
