I don't see lobsters. But the Tumbler flying, yes that is applicable. The upper portion disconnecting so that it flies is realistic. It is in many ways like a hovercraft, which more and more they are capable of actual flight. If it was the whole Tumbler, then it wouldn't work which is why it doesn't do that. Captain America's suit in "The Avengers" doesn't look that armored. Fortunately, he's using a shield and that film really bends the idea of realism, which is different from what Nolan is striving for. Like I said, the audience can only buy so much before they cry foul.
Even if he were a "superhero" in the traditional sense, there's nothing wrong with having that suit.Originally Posted by Mr. Holmes
That too. The only reason for the bat motif has to do with the theatrics that Ra's talked about and Bruce's understanding of fear from his travels. And the bottom line is that if someone in real life attempted to play Batman, they would need that level of protection on top of combat skills and an athletic body.Originally Posted by Death by Mime
