Reel Endings | Batman Begins

16 07 2008

In preparation for “The Dark Knight,” we take one more look back at the very end of 2005’s “Batman Begins.”

In “Batman Begins,” director Christopher Nolan re-imagines “The Caped Crusader” in a much darker, more stylized way than either the television shows or the first incarnation of director Tim Burton’s “Batman” films.

The film ends with Gordon (Gary Oldham), now a lieutenant, unveils a Bat-Signal for Batman. Gordon mentions a criminal who, like Batman, has “a taste for the theatrical”, and who leaves Joker playing cards at his crime scenes. Batman promises to investigate it. As Batman is leaving, Gordon mentions that he has not thanked Batman for his help in cleaning up the city. Batman replies that Gordon will never have to, and flies off into the night.

Next up: The saga continues in “The Dark Knight.”
