Keith, we've been down this road before. I am not, and never will be a fan of either TDK or TDKR, especially TDKR......Bane SUCKED, and the whole, "I have a bomb" story has been done numerous times, and is too predictable. I liked BB, but did not and DO NOT think it stacks up to Tim Burton's Batman, and does not come anywhere close to being as good as Iron Man. But, we've discussed this many times before, so we're simply repeating ourselves here! LOL!

I do like Farrell in SOME things, but I just did not get into his character at all in Total Recall. That movie was terrible, except for the visuals, and of course, Ms. Beckensale! One movie I did like Colin in was Minority Report, which is a great movie!

I don't know that this trailer shows any more character or heart than the other trailes I've seen.  And I miss hearing him say that "Dead or alive..." line in the slightly robotic voice.  I like the robotic voice better... it had more gravitas.

Joel Kinnaman's Robocop voice to me sounds just like Peter Weller's not really that much of a difference. I think the New armor looks bad ass. In the 80's everything the was high tech or futuristic was silver and in this day and age everything is black. Like in the movie the point was to make Robocop to look more tactical what’s more tactical then black. Compared that to Robocop running around in a shiny silver armor sticking out like a sore thumb The silver armor will be worn first then he gets an upgraded to the black armor. Just in case anyone was wondering.

nemesis, your theory about the color of the armor does make sense.  But if you go back and watch the original and then listen the voice in the trailer, the metallic sound is certainly missing.  The original Robocop sounded almost like his voice was coming through a speaker or something.  I will admit, however, that when he took the helmet part off and he was just Murphy his voice sounded normal.  But with it on, he definitely sounded more robotic and metallic.

At least in a lot of parts his voice had that metallic resonance to it.  I'll agree not all the time.  Not sure what that's all about, but as someone who's probably watched it upwards of 25 times, I definitely picked up on it.  Maybe they do the same thing with this new one and we just didn't see/hear it in the trailers.

And I realize he gets "upgraded" to the black armor.  They mention that in the first trailer I think.  I just think the black looks more plastic from the footage they've shown.  But that's just my opinion.  I do see the point of going with black though.

I'm still really looking forward to this though!

VermithraxP, I know we've been down this road before, especially with other friends here like Wise, I just had to state my 2 cents!  I respect your right to your views like anyone else here, it certainly doesn't stop me from liking what I like or dislike.

I don't agree with the arguement that Batman shouldn't have a serious tone or else it can't be done well, because history has proven otherwise IMO.  I'm amazed why there are still some who are so hooked on the Tim Burton Batman when that movie has aged very much!!  It was very miscasted; they obviously wanted stars instead of getting the right actors for the right also had a poor story...yes it was fun to look at and their were some fun action scenes; especially the Batmobile in action were fun but the movie wasn't taken seriously enough.  It was too aloof and became apparrant that Burton didn't understand the Batman character and and therefore he should never have gone anywhere near any Batman movie!!

I know, I know, there are those who would say that the Nolan Batman films may have been taken too seriously but I don't necessarily agree.  I think what many if not most of those who either liked the Nolan Batman films but liked the Burton Batman more or didn't like the Nolan series at all are really saying overall is that they wished Nolan had placed his Batman in the DCU which I certainly understand.  In fact, that's one of the criticisms I have of TDKR, even though I don't agree with those who disliked or even hated it, is that that movie would've been a perfect time to have brought Batman into the DCU.  You can make it like that and still keep at least in part a serious tone like Batman: The Animated Series.  It's what I would've done if I had made it.

BTW, I think BB more than "stacks up" against Burton's puts it to shame!!!  I'm willing to bet you years from now that most people won't see BB aging like Burton's Batman has aged!!!  Oh, well, that's what happens when you have the wrong director at the helm who chose to make fun of the material instead of treating it with respect!!  Say what you want about Nolan's version but at least he respected the material and that's something I think his detractors will have a tough time refuting!
