If I recall, Dick Grayson was Red Robin in Kingdom Come. Not only would that be super confusing (with Tim Drake being the real Red Robin,) the original Red Robin costume was a bit silly.

Maybe it's just me, but I prefer the "smash through anything in front of it" look of the Tumbler.

The best Batmobile for smashing stuff is the one from The Dark Knight Returns.

I never understood how the Tumbler could smash through anything with those exposed front wheels.

Well it's kinda like a monster truck set really low and it must be heavy. It was designed as a military vehicle

It was designed as a military vehicle that can jump across ravines though which would suggest that it is actually lightweight, which would mean it is probably not the best choice for smashing through brick walls. That jumping gimmick was really stupid though, did they use it in the 2nd and 3rd film or was it just the 1st, I can't remember.

They definitely showed it jumping in the first film, maybe the second film. It had to jump to just get into or out of the Batcave.

I forgot about the jumping part. So it's lightweight with exposed wheels, like a Formula 1 or Indy car.

Ah, back in the days where Frank Miller wasn't a homophobic, xenophobic, misogynistic sack of shit.

I'm not sure how they could do a Blade Runner sequel with Harrison Ford.

<<Spoilers for a thirty year old film ahead>>

Since Deckard was supposed to be a replicant himself (at least according to Ridley Scott), and they said that replicants have a limited lifespan, how would they explain his age? Are they going to do the CGI mask thing they did with Tron?

And I always heard Harrison Ford absolutely hated doing the first one. Why would he come back again, especially with the same director?

Well, this convinces me that <I>Alien: Isolation</i> won't be a train wreck like <I>Aliens: Colonial Marines</i>. And <i>Colonial Marines</i> looked like it had a lot of potential;
