Hot Toys Teases The Dark Knight Rises Batman|
OK, yeah, so it looks like Bruce Wayne will be wearing the same gear in The Dark Knight Rises as he did in The Dark Knight, and from a film aficionado's point of view that is very cool. It would be easy for Warner Bros to say they want many different batmen toys, but Christopher Nolan was able to move past the make-many-different-toys-while-making-a-movie trap that many other filmmakers allow themselves to fall into, and as such in his third and final film there is only one suit that defines the legend of Batman.
For toymakers this may prove to be a challenge, but not for Hot Toys. They are looking at this as a chance to improve on their already incredible Dark Knight Batman DX figure. Does that mean the secondary market price will drop on the current version? We don't think it will because no one wants to sell the other one. The question is, how do you improve on perfection? That's the same question we asked ourselves with the Version 2.0 Joker, and we now see that you can in fact improve on perfection. As such, we welcome this new version of Batman, and no, it doesn't mean we'll sell the first DX Batman. (sideways happy face).
