TDK is the only one worth praising imo and that's mostly has to do with Ledger's Joker.
BB and TDKR are nothing to talk about.

What you talking about doesn't seem to be what I'm talking about. I don't see how casting an Asian man instead of Sir Ben Kingsley would've made what they did with fake Mandarin in IM3 much better than what was done. In the movie they never even established that the Mandarin was Chinese, he was just a terrorist. So no matter if the guy was an albino black Russian it still would've been batter
Just cuz you hated the twist doesn't mean everybody did or that the majority did.
You know what's funny about that? That's EXACTLY what Nolan did in TDKR. Bane is busting **** up for 3/4ths of the movie and even despite claiming shorty wasn't Talia when she was cast before the movie she shows up as Talia at the end claiming this was all her master plan to honor her father and Bane just becomes a little ***** easily defeated by Batman
Yall don't even see the irony in this argument.
Also your example to make a comparison to what IM3 did really isn't equal
Funny but c'mon.
And TDKR was the worst of the 3.
The irony of your last sentence. Finding out the boss is the henchmen is much different than finding out the Henchman is a paid actor who wasnt a danger at all.
They didn't find out that a henchmen was a paid actor they found out who they thought was the boss was a paid actor and actually just a henchmen to be clear.
But again we seem to be talking about two different things here cuz I'm not saying the twist was great or good. So I don't see the irony cuz it's not something I'm even defending or arguing for. All I pointed out was he tried to use the what if example with TDK while ignoring that's exactly what happened in TDKR.
