“The people have always some champion whom they set over them and nurse into greatness…This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector”- Plato, The Republic
Batman Movie Logos, 1989- 2012
My ultimate hero!
“I’m so sorry. I failed you. You trusted me, and I failed you.”
Because he’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it.
“The thing that separates [Batman] from other superhero films is that Batman is entirely plausible. There aren’t any superpowers involved in the film. There aren’t any mutants, no characters from other planets. It’s set firmly in the real world. And I think in that way it makes it more accessible to the audience. You could never be Superman, you could never be The Incredible Hulk, but anybody could become Batman - you’d have to inherit a couple billion dollars and have all these gadgets, but nevertheless it’s possible. Like maybe if we tried hard enough, if we worked hard enough, if we trained hard enough, maybe, just maybe, we could become Batman.”
- David Goyer
