Humour: The Dark Knight Rises Ending

**Obligatory Spoiler Alert**  

I am glad I wasn't the only one who saw the connection between Nolan's heroic ending to the campy roots of Batman.   I suppose this is what critics such as the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Eli Glasner, who otherwise gave a glowing review of the film, meant when they noted that despite the gritty realism of Nolan's direction, the film's comic book roots shows.

It certainly does in context.

**UPDATE** The YouTube video was removed by the author due to a copyright claim.  So in lieu of the video, here's a short version animated gif of the scene from the Batman movie.
