In "Batman Begins" Lucius Fox says about the Batsuit: "This sucker will stop a knife." In "The Dark Knight Rises", Batman gets stabbed. However, in "The Dark Knight", Fox gives Batman a new suit that makes him more agile but also "more vulnerable to knives and gunfire". If Batman kept his old suit, it's likely that the knife would've been less effective. See more »

The Batman symbol is made of ice, and cracks as it zooms into the screen. See more »
I knew right from the opening shot of Gordon's eulogy "I knew Harvey Dent..." with the breaking to form the Bat symbol, that this was going to be epic. It was obvious from the beginning that the film legend. In fact, I loved it and I think it is the best movies The Dark Knight. I absolutely Loved it, and I'm glad they really humanized Batman and limited his screen time in this film. Some "comic booky-actiony" type fans didn't like the small amount of time we actually see Batman, but that was the whole point of the trilogy! The ending, where Foley says "there's only one police in this town" while doing their march against Bane was really awesome. The ending was perfect. But the movie has missed the Joker. I say as both a Batman fanboy and especially a Nolan fanboy that this is the perfect trilogy.
