“Batman could be anybody. That was the point.”

From: The Dark Knight Rises

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Bruce Wayne

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the third and final entry in Christopher Nolan’s Batman movie trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises. However, this time around, it isn’t from Batman, The Joker or even wise-old Alfred Pennyworth. This week, it’s from Bruce Wayne.

The quote comes from the middle of the film. Police officer John Blake (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) has managed to deduce that Bruce Wayne (played again by Christian Bale) is Batman. The two attempt to find leads to where the criminal Bane is and, during the car ride, Blake asks Bruce Wayne why he dons a mask. Bruce explains that the costume was to be a symbol. This is when he delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom: Anyone can be a hero. You don’t need to be a mask or a costume to do heroic deeds. It’s more about doing the right thing when it’s needed.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!

  1. I absolutely love this quote. The Dark Knight Trilogy was full of them. My favorite: “I’m like a dog chasing cars, I wouldn’t know what to do if I caught one”
