I was not friends with them as long as they had been with each other but we were friends. I had met many of them before I knew what podcasting was.These other guys all grew up together. If there was a dispute it is Deemer's show and Mike is out. These other dudes are lifelong friends. When you hear about their time spent with each other outside the show his name doesn't come up (cons, parties, etc.). The idea that this was a friend getting rid of another friend is a stretch. I think these were just two guys who worked together and now they don't.
Batman, as the movie states, is a symbol. Batman is an ideal. Something the city needs for redemption. Bruce passed batman on to Blake. Three movies of the story telling you this would happen.Mike, I had to create an account just to disagree with your comment. No, not anyone can be Batman. If that were the case any decent detective could slide into the Batcave, put on the suit and be Batman. It is the man inside the suit that makes the hero. Bruce Wayne, even in this incarnation, is a man who was born out of tragedy, a man who used his resources to spent a decade training, becoming more than just an ordinary man. The Bruce in this movie spent years with ninjas, and living in prisons to understand how the criminal mind works. Yes Batman is a symbol, but you expect me to buy that ANYONE can be everything that I just described? Is John Blake from what was shown in this movie? He's far from it. Is John Blake a hero? Hell yes! Can his character as shown in this movie be Batman? HELL NO! Not anymore than a young Jim Gordon could. Who, by the way would have killed him if he were a criminal in the hospital scene. To say that anyone can be Batman completely demotes his status as a hero.It is pretty obvious that Blake will be batman. Gotham needs a batman. Anyone can be batman. Batman is a symbol. This was all established in the first movie and beat to death in the following two.
Was no one listening? Sheesh!
Blake would know Bruce is alive because he will become a great detective. Bruce obviously feels safe enough to leave Blake the city and the cowl that he can score some Selina.
In essence, when you see Blake as anything other than batman you are destroying the symbol of batman.
Especially with all the bat,an imitators about. There is only one batman.
