I thought the ending (?) of Two-Face disappointing too - I don't know if they're trying to leave the door open for Harvey to come back, or ran outta steam at the end and just wrapped it up that way...

According to the writers and the director, 2 Face is dead at at the end of the movie. The ending is a duality paradox if I remember the article properly. There will probably be a sequel, but according to the director Chris Nolan, and his brother who wrote the story, no one has yet been approached by the studio to do a sequel, and Nolan would like to wait 3 or 4 years in any event before bringing one out.

Dang, three to four years waiting huh?

All we'll hear about over that time is; who'll play Catwoman; will DC ever get the Justice League movie up and going; will they redo The Hulk again...

That is a conversation I would love to get into. If you wanna, start it it off.

My wife brought that up when we watched it over the weekend. My belief is this; I have a great ear for voices. I can, for the most part, pick out the celebrity voices when they do commercials or voice overs. It stands to reason that I am not the only one that can do this, fictional or otherwise. As Bruce Wayne is rather affluent and well known and he mixes with the same people as both Wayne and Batman, he'd wanna throw his voice off a bit. Just my theory.

^The voice:- It's not so much that, Bale's voice just sounds strangulated by the mask you would've thought they would have overdubbed it to sound smoother and clearer cuz half the time I couldn't understand what he was saying.

I have to side with the "not so much" crowd here. I really liked the movie and think it was very good (not as good as Begins) but i really don't see all the hoopla over HLs Joker, especially when people claim he's the best movie villan ever. He struck me as pretty bland actually.

I watched the movie again this afternoon - and like The Joker even more than before. I like Bale's Batman a little more this time around, but not Rachel Dawes - not even a little bit...

Same here. It was almost as if her character was an afterthought in the writers' minds.

I watched the movie again, and still don't see what you guys saw. I just don't see anything special about what Legder did.
