8 Awful Movie Moments DC Wants You To Forget
Oh, you thought The Joker was in this? WRONG.
Though the DC Cinematic Universe is a relatively recent endeavour, there has been a huge number of DC film adaptations over the years. Beginning way back in 1951 with Superman And The Mole Men and later hitting the mainstream with 1966's Batman, a film based on the classic television series.
Since the early 2000s DC adaptations have become much more varied, moving away from being exclusively Superman and Batman orientated, tackling everything from Watchmen to Green Lantern to Jonah Hex.
But the success of these adaptations has been mixed to say the least, with DC's more recent efforts often being compared unfavourably to that of Marvel Studios.
As DC continues to expand its cinematic universe with films like Wonder Woman, The Flash and Justice League, let's take a look back over the awful moments they desperately want you to forget.
8. The Longest Eight Minutes Ever - The Dark Knight Rises
There's no denying that out all three of Christopher Nolan's Batman films, The Dark Knight Rises is the most problematic. In general, its merits outweigh its flaws, and overall it's a great film. But there are some bizarre continuity errors that DC should be totally embarrassed about.
The worst offender is during Bane's stock market heist. The scene begins with the opening of the stock market - or what appears to be its opening. There's a bell to mark the beginning of trading. Even if this bell is to like, mark the end of lunch or something, the scene is still firmly set during daylight hours, during the morning or afternoon.
When Bane enters and begins hacking into the system, he's told it'll take eight minutes in order to finish the transaction. Still broad daylight. Bane utters his now famous line "time to go mobile" and he and his gang of cronies escape, finishing the transcation just before the eight minute timer elapses. The problem? It's now pitch black. It somehow goes from broad daylight to utter darkness within eight minutes, made all the worse by the fact the audience has a clear timer to measure the passage of time by.
