Really? Because I didn't know they were eager to spoil it from watching the trailer. I didn't know that until I read the article.

Which is exactly the point. Not to beat a dead horse here -- although it does seem appropriate, considering we're on CHUD, discussing a movie from the makers of Batman Begins
-- but it's the "making a big deal" out of the shot that's making it into a spoiler. Again, you can make an argument that including the shot in the trailer was calculated to set off a firestorm among us internet movie site fanboys, but you can make just as strong of an argument that a shot like that will mean nothing unusual to us if we aren't actively seeking out spoilers. And again, I'd think that when in doubt
, it would seem that a simple use of inviso-text would solve the problem.
So, no, I don't blame Nolan & Warner Bros. -- I blame Beaks for poor judgment in writing that article. Sorry, Beaks, but that's how I see it.
