Lets just dive in shall we. As much as I support Nolan and his game changing cinematic style for Batman, TDKR is NOT a perfect movie. It's sad, but true. There are multiple moments where common sense goes out the window for the sake of "Bane gaining control of the city" Could someone actually steal all of Wayne's money in a stock exchange being held hostage? Wouldn't the transaction be immediately flagged? Why does Batman not realize Bane's tunnel leads directly under his own armory? Why does Batman not use a single useful gadget to fight Bane instead of trying to out box him? Why did Bruce design the reactor to have a removable core if Bruce was so worried about people exploiting it for evil? Why are the military and police absolutely useless in this story? How does Batman survive the stabbing? How does he get back to Gotham after the prison break? We could talk about the pros and cons of Rises for hours, but this is meant to be about the HISHE. Bottom line, I LOVE Nolan's Batman and that's why it's so fun to pick it apart.
Back to the Short. I am very proud of this one. Several reasons. Otis' backgrounds are top notch and it makes my character art look so legit. The music is awesome, which Bryan made way more tracks than he usually does for a single HISHE so that puts this one way over the scale musically. We also have two new voice actors on this one. From the internet's Creature Hub two of the members, Dan Gidlow and Max Gonzalez who we met at Comic Con, gave us their performances. Dan being an OG in terms of HISHE fan has been a part of the HISHE community since almost the beginning. After meeting him and knowing what a batman fan he was I always wanted to give him a spot in the short, and then to find out one of his colleagues does an insane Morgan Freeman Impression we got 2 amazing voices instead of just one.
The last thing I'm happy with is just seeing it all come together. This short was very challenging in terms of what can we make that isn't completely like any of our previous super hero shorts (especially The Dark Knight) We didn't want to carbon copy as it's our goal to make each short stand alone and each cafe to focus on the star of the movie. So I hope you enjoy it. I especially enjoy it because I know first hand how at one moment it was nothing then people contributed, and it was one of our biggest cartoons to date. I wish we could have made a 15 minute version, but perhaps we can make some bonus shorts. :) Thanks for watching everybody!
