    You thought Batman was a hero...but in true Film Theory style, today's episode tells a VERY different story. Batman in the Dark Knight Rises is supposed to be the realest, grittiest Batman EVER, but there's a MASSIVE scientific and logical error at the end of the Dark Knight Rises that shows Batman for what he actually is: a REAL failure.

    This is the DC universe, folks! The batcopter travels at 7.95 quintillion times the speed of light. Also after batman worked on the autopilot code, the speed increased to up to 200,000 nonillion times the speed of light. The bomb detonated so far away, that the laws of logic broke down and the explosion appeared to be nearby.

    "what model helicopter is the fastest in the world"
    "how can I visit hiroshima to see the nuclear fallout?"
    and many more questionable things!

    Dear Matthew,
    If you'd be a kind angel,may you include the metric system? I don't know the imperial system. So if you can include a metric system measurement even just in parantheses,it'd be satisfactory. You mayn't see this comment. But this was your feedback.

    6:57 if the bomb was weightless, in the 75 seconds it would’ve travelled a about 22 500 000 km because if it doesnt have weight, it doesnt have mass either and since massless object must always travel at the speed of light, gotham doesnt have any chance of being devastated.

    This whole theory is based on Gotham being just a different name for NYC! Gotham is located in New Jersey in the comics and in the movie the way Batman flies there are non boroughs or anything its all open water. The geography of Gotham is not the same as New York city!!!!!
