I just watched the new Batman Begins trailer on MTV’s site (I won’t link because it’s a maze) and with Ra’s Al Ghul saying “Gotham must be destroyed” and Betty (okay… she’s called Rachel Dodson… but she’s playing a Betty) talking about moral choices in Gotham and when the Batman himself says that Gotham is not beyond saving… not to mention all the military equiptment…
Is Batman Begins going to be a comic-colored commentary on the issues of 9/11? Is Batman going to teach us how the U.S. should behave in the face of maniacal, if rationalized, terrorism?
Maybe that’s the pitch and not the movie. But in this trailer, it’s pretty unmistakeable.
