Batman Begins Dog Name Considerations

Batman is not unfamiliar with reboots. We have seen many actors portray the Dark Knight on the big screen. We have seen Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Adam West play the part of the caped crusader. But it seemed that in more recent years, the movies were getting worse. The costumes were bad, the acting over the top and the stories were campy.  Things had gotten so bad that fans were begging Warner Bros. to stop readapting the character, and just leave him be. Warner Bros. complied, and we were saved from more terrible adaptions for a few years.

And then, Christopher Nolan began shooting “Batman Begins”. Fans of the franchise were sceptical, but Nolan has a reputation of churning out movie-going gold, so we waited patiently. When it hit theatres, fan boys were worshipping Nolan. It was brilliant: from the costumes, to the acting to the story. Everyone was thrilled, and Warner Bros. won some credibility with fans. The movie has another quality going for it, it has a bunch of great names for your dogs. All the names we chose are either directly from the movie, or are the characters or actors but will have a link to the film. If you have a super hero canine in your household, this list will help you find a name for him. Is he sleek and agile? Dark and mysterious? Maybe a bit of a trouble maker? You'll find the right name here.
