When I saw The Dark Knight Rises, the Bane fight reminded me alot of the fight in Batman & Robin. Maybe it was a deliberate homage to fuck with the audience, but there are a few similarities.
Despite one location being an ice cream making factory and the other being the sewer, notice the surfaces/railing/steps they're fighting on are pretty similar, as in they're narrow and have railings on each side.
0:11 in B&R video, Robin gets thrown down the steps by Bane, 1:28 in TDKR video, Batman gets kicked down the steps by Bane,.
1:22 Bane is grabbing Batman's throat in B&R, 2:54 Bane is grabbing Batman by the throat in TDKR.
The general fighting between Batman and Bane is similar too I think.
Maybe I'm crazy, but I just see parralells/homages to Batman & Robin in The Dark Knight Rises.

Wouldn't this be better posted in a Batman thread in the movies forum?

For once in your life, would you please post in the correct forum and look for an existing thread before creating a new one? The DKR thread is on the first page of Movies & TV, but I guess it just makes entirely too much sense to post about a movie in that forum, right? There's also a more general Batman thread floating around, I believe in that same forum. FFS, take 30 seconds to read the forum titles and search for an existing topic before you dump stuff in the wrong forum.

This is your verbal warning.
