Selina Kyle in ‘Selina Kyle’
Interviewer: One thing that’s really striking about The Dark Knight, compared to Batman Begins, is that you open in daylight, with The Joker’s robbery. You never expect to see daylight in a Batman movie…
Christopher Nolan: Yeah, well through the film we tried to play as much of it in the day as possible. Because we sort of set up this dynamic where, at the end of the last film and carrying into this film, Batman, as it were, rules the night and people are afraid of him - criminals know he’s out there - so The Joker kind of owns the day, in a way because Batman can’t really come out in the day. He’d look a little ridiculous in the rubber suit, walking down the high street in full daylight. So the day, in a weird way becomes more threatening, you know, because you feel when you get into the night, you sort of feel like Batman’s probably in pretty good control of things.
"We must think not as individuals but as a species. We must confront the reality of i n t e r s t e l l a r travel.
I mean, I have done scenes with animals, with owls, with bats, with cats, with special effects, with thespians, in the freezing cold, in the pouring rain, boiling hot; I’ve done press with every syndication, every country; I’ve done interviews with people dressed up as cows - there’s honestly nothing that’s gonna intimidate me!
I’M ASSUMING YOU’RE REFERRING TO THIS ONE
LETS GET SUPER SPOOOOOOOOPY
get spoopy with meh
….You realize, of course, that Hermione Granger lit a teacher on fire when she was eleven, and kept a person alive in a jar for a year when she was fourteen, and studies dark and forbidden magics for kicks, and is one of the brightest and strongest witches of her era. If she came at me, even wandless, I would aparate to Neptune to get away from her.
Hermione Granger also:
- punched Draco Malfoy in the nose for being an idiot
- purposefully performed a confundus charm on whatshsface WHILE HE WAS FLYING just so Ron would win (omfg that is so fucking dangerous)
- literally pulled a fucking Bourne Identity on her parents and managed to set them up in fucking Australia (jesus christ she literally made it so that she NEVER EXISTED wtf that’s so fucking 007)
- Convinced the Ministry of Magic to give her an incredibly dangerous and volatile device that allowed her to ALTER TIMELINES COMPLETELY (just because she was so smart, literally, that is the reason, her “potential”)
- Has enough basic survival skills and badass magic to literally disappear to the middle of nowhere and flourish AND figure out Voldemort’s plot with Harry
- Hermione also figures out not only what Voldemort’s plan is, but generally how to beat it, WAY BEFORE VOLDEMORT EVER DOES. Why? because she is just that much smarter and better at magic than everybody else
in conclusion: Voldemort wishes he could be as awesome as Hermione, that’s why he wants to kill her so bad.
Can we rehave this series with hermione as the protagonist.
(Keep in mind that this is mostly only by the first episode, because I’m a loser and haven’t watched the second one yet)
