    About The Films

    Batman Begins (2005)
    Batman Begins explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knigh-s emergence as a force for good in Gotham. In the wake of his parents' murder, disillusioned industrial heir Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. He returns to Gotham and unveils his alter-ego: Batman, a masked crusader who uses his strength, intellect and an array of high tech deceptions to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city.

    The Dark Knight (2008)
    The follow-up to Batman Begins, The Dark Knight reunites director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on crime. With the help of Lt. Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves effective, but soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker (Heath Ledger), who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces Batman closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante. Maggie Gyllenhaal joins the cast as Rachel Dawes. Returning from Batman Begins are Oldman, Michael Caine as Alfred and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.

    The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
    It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane. Christian Bale stars, along with Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Morgan Freeman.

    I'm disappointed. I held off on buying the current BD set, because I was waiting for this one. I was especially hoping for commentary tracks, but at the very least expected a lot more extensive set of new extras. I know Chris doesn't tend to do commentaries, but they seriously couldn't have gotten Jonah and Goyer to do one? Or some cast members? Or some current/former Batman writers?

    I think I'll just look for a good price on the current discs.

    Why are they acting like Nolan is the first person to make a Batman movie? I'd be much more interested in an interview between Donner and Tim Burton.

    Why would they interview Burton on a set dedicated to Nolan's films?

    Also, there is no incline to say Burton was inspired by the Donner Superman film, it would be a rather pointless conversation.

    I may pick this up when it's cheap. I'm not interested in the toys or the artwork, but the rest of the features sound cool. It is a shame there's no commentaries.

    No, I don't mean that this set should have such an interview. I meant that if I had to see a Batman director talk to a Superman director, it would be Burton.

    But I didn't really see that much influence from the Superman movies in Nolan's work, so that's another reason why I think it's strange.

    Current Trilogy set (BD) is on sale for $25 at amazon.com ($19.49 for DVD). Think I'll definitely just grab this rather than the ultimate edition.

    I had that, but then I saw that I can get a full version of the book that comes with it. So I sold that, and kept my individual copies of the first two movies in steelbook packaging because of some Best Buy exclusive perk. Now I'd sell those and get this ultimate collector's edition. I'm keeping my copy of The Dark Knight Rises since it's the Target exclusive version that comes with a prologue comic.

    I have the Blu-Ray TDK Trilogy original set, and I saw the insert about the Ultimate Collector's Box. Except the Hot Wheels collectibles, I'm not really interested in the rest of the bonus features.
