Added DiffLines:


* So... is anyone gonna talk about Two-Face's molls Sugar and Spice just running away and [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse never being brought up again or shown]] after Batman destroys The Riddler's Lair? These two ARE aware of Batman's secret identity, are they gonna spread the word and be a problem?



to:

** Perhaps he just changed his mind. People tend to do that sometimes.


Added DiffLines:

** The same way Riddler and Two-Face did.



to:

** There's a trope for this: BatDeduction


* Dick leaves Wayne Manor...only to show up later in full costume as Robin. What the hell prompted his change of heart? When did he decide to do this? What was he doing when Wayne Manor was attacked? [[WebVideo/RedLetterMedia There's a word for this - lazy]].

** It was probably a casting choice made out of obligation. Maybe Chris O'Donnell had a contract with Warner Bros or a producer thought a teenager would be too young to get into the type of peril we see Robin in given the parental backlash the last movie received. But really, they should have done some rewrites, because a lot the dialogue makes Dick out to be even younger, like 10-13.

** I think it was meant to be part of the machine that transferred the brainwaves of everyone using one of his boxes into his mind. Comic-book science explains why it was full of energy that wrecked the base, and I guess somehow explains his deformation?

* The Riddler tells Chase that he's counting on Batman to come to his lair. Yet a DeletedScene shows that there's another cave that he missed that contained the sonar suit, the Batplane and the Batboat. So why did he destroy the cave in the first place? Furthermore, why did he try to shoot Batman out of the sky?

* How did Batman, Robin and Chase get back to Gotham? The Batboat was blown up and the Batplane's at the bottom of the river.

** Given how prone to "theming" villains in Gotham tend to be, Halloween is one night of the year when Batman is going to be out from dusk till dawn. It's going to be ''Alfred'' who always answers the door for trick-or-treaters, and he's got enough of a soft spot for kids that Wayne Manor has probably gained a local reputation as a great spot to pick up loads of candy from a very polite old man.

Added DiffLines:

** Or just psyching himself up for the fight, same as an amateur boxer might shout "I'm Floyd Mayweather!" as he heads into the ring.

Added DiffLines:

** Bruce looked around right after he said it; it was apparent that if anyone heard it, no one believed him. Perhaps they thought he was pulling a HeroicSacrifice by the way of an "IAmSpartacus"?

Added DiffLines:

** His fighting prowess isn't quite as suspicious as standing up and screaming "I'm Batman!" beforehand.

Added DiffLines:

*** Not necessarily. It's not in a cramped cul du sac, sure, but it's not unheard of for well-to-do subdivisions (especially in rural areas) to have much larger property areas, meaning houses are much more scarce and spread out. Wayne Manor is certainly isolated, but there could still be other homes on the road en route to it.


** We only really see the one group of kids. Maybe whichever parent was chaperoning saw the long distance between the end of the driveway and the front door and decided to wait in the car and let the kids huff it to the house on their own. It's a house in the middle of the woods. Aside from the unanticipated supervillains breaking in, what could possibly go wrong?

* This troper has a question about the videotape of the boss's suicide. Did Nigma disguise himself as his employer, or did he use some kind of video editing software to pull off that trick? As a kid, I assumed he dressed up as the boss and ran towards the window (while hamming it up). He seems crazy enough to do it.

\n** Dick was mentioned to be a college student, which would put him approximately between 18 and 22. Chris O’Donnell was in his mid 20s, so that makes only a few years age difference.

to:

** You also have to take into consideration the limits of the English alphabet, i.e. it has only 26 letters. Putting 13 & 1 together gets 131; 8 & 5 gets 85, both beyond the range of the alphabet. And putting 1 & 5 together is right out because Bruce already deduced that the order they came in was important. So if you're going to transpose numbers to letters in this fashion, with these stipulations, 1 + 8 = 18 is really the only one that fits.
