    Do you think any of us could get crazy enough, that we'd take a gun and...

    I truly hope not. But see the thing about fanbases is that they can inspire that sort of thing. What a Batfan did could also be what a TFan can do, or any other fanbase member. These things must be considered, especially given the amount of anger MBay and Spielberg are receiving...

    What happened at TDKR could've happened anywhere, at any time, and that's all I have to say about this.

    What kind of a question is that? It had nothing to do with the movie, it was a psychopath with a gun. Lock this.

    Could it happen? Well, yeah, of course it could. You can't just go and say NOPE THERE'S NO POSSIBLE WAY THAT COULD HAPPEN about something like that.

    It depends on if there's anymore horrible lunatics that not only would want to do something like that, but would actually be willing to do it around that time.

    But would it be because of anger towards Bay and Spielburg? Highly doubtful.

    The connection between DKR and the shooter is pure coincidence. He was a psychopath who was looking to do the most damage, and it couldn't be a more tragic opportunity than the opening of DKR, one of the most anticipated movies of 2012. I'm sure the release of TF4 is going to be safe.

    Hopefully this will cause the US to take a good long hard look at their 'right' to carry and own weapons. It causes way to many potential issues. this is a horrible tragedy and unfortunately has tainted one of the movies i was looking forward most to seeing this year.

    This could have happened anywhere and not just at TDKR. Hell, the guy could have dressed up as Spider-Man, and the outcome wouldn't have changed at all. Tragedies like this don't depend on the movie per-say, it depends on what kind of lunatic is nearby at that moment, and decides to go on a killing spree. Not trying to sound funny at all, but that's what society has come to in the past decade.

    Of course it's possible, that's just how messed up some people are.
    Besides, the gunman waited for a point with a lot of shooting and explosions to make his move, to avoid triggering instant attention.
    We all know the TFilms are based around it.

    No one wants to hear your shitty joke, stop jumping up and down looking for attention.

    Your joke will be in extremely poor taste, and likely not very funny given the situation. Keep it to yourself unless you want to look like a jackass.

    If you think you need to ask permission to tell a joke, it's probably not a great idea to tell it in the first place.




    Could this happen at a premiere for TF4, or for any movie? Sure, I guess. It's unlikely, but it's not impossible. This is, unfortunately, the age we live in, and our safety and security are not always as assured as we think they are.
