All my puzzles are solved except 'Let's try this', so I'm posting a couple new ones.

They were given an awesome opportunity, and it has always irked me that they didn't take it.

Are 'they' fictional? Are they fictional characters is a preexisting work? If so, is it a fictional work many would consider "geeky"?

Are 'they' all HAMs? HAFs? A mixture of male and female? Is there 1-10 of them? Is there 11-20 of them? Is there 20-100 of them? More?

If this is about giant eagles and a volcano, I might have to nerd rant back at you.

Oops, forgot to mention this deals with a movie (I was a little inspired by AlexanderHamilton's Matrix puzzles.)

Are 'they' fictional? Are they fictional characters is a preexisting work? No, but... If so, is it a fictional work many would consider "geeky"? The work involved would be considered somewhat geeky.
Are 'they' all HAMs? HAFs? A mixture of male and female? This Is there 1-10 of them? Is there 11-20 of them? I'm guessing around this. Is there 20-100 of them? More?

If this is about giant eagles and a volcano, I might have to nerd rant back at you. Haha, no, but that was certainly a missed opportunity. "How convenient, these giant eagles that can easily carry us will just drop us miles away from our destination!"

Interesting... so are 'they' in a geeky, nonfiction movie? Is it a documentary? Is it a fictional adaptation of a true story?

When you say the puzzle deals with a movie, do you mean that the story of them recieving an awesome opportunity comes from a movie? Is it an actual event that has something to do with a movie?

Is this an English language movie? Is it a movie released since 2000? Has it ever won an Academy Award?

Are 'they' actors? directors? producers? other film crew members?

Were they people in the movie or involved in the making of the film?
Or did they have the opportunity to be in or involved in the film, but didn't take the opportunity?

Is the movie in question sci-fi? Is it fantasy? Is it a comic book movie?

Did the relevant movie have a sequel? Is it a sequel? Is it based off of a book? A TV show? A comic book? A video game? Is it an original premise?

Was their missed opportunity something to do with the plot of the movie?

Oops, sorry.

Movie title relevant? It's relevant what film it is, if that's what you mean.

Is it a movie based on DC comics? Based on Marvel? Is it a Batman movie? Superman? Spider-Man? X-Men? One of the Avengers lead-in movies (Iron Man, Capt America, etc.)?

Would the reference have been a reference to an earlier movie in the series? To something in the comic's continuity?

Was there a character you thought they should have used? Did you think that stupid Gordon-Levitt character should have just been Dick Grayson?

Is there a specific Batman storyline that's relevant? Knightfall?

Was there a character you thought they should have used? This, but beware FA. Did you think that stupid Gordon-Levitt character should have just been Dick Grayson? I do think this, although that's not the answer.

Is there a specific Batman storyline that's relevant? No Knightfall?
It's most helpful to figure out what scene is relevant.

Was the character you thought they should have used already in the movie? Did you think they should have used an existing character differently? Did you think they should have added a character who wasn't in the movie?

Was the relevant scene towards the beginning of the film? In the middle? Towards the end?

Did you want a group of characters to appear? Did you want a specific actor to appear in the film? Did you want there to be a reference to a certain character?

Does this scene occur before Bruce Wayne is spirited away to the foreign prison? While he's there? After? Is Bruce in the scene in question? Is there even one specific scene we should be looking for?

Hmmm... so we're looking for a scene after Bruce escapes prison, but he isn't in the scene. Is the scene before the nuclear bomb explodes?

Is the group of people members of some organization? The Justice League? Birds of Prey? Some other crime-fighting organization?

Did the people you wanted to appear originate in a Batman comic? Are they members of the DC Comics continuity, but originate elsewhere?

Are the characters villains? Are they allies of Batmans? A mix of both? Are they police? Are they residents of Gotham?

Are there 2-3 characters I'm looking for? 4-5? 6-10? More?

So under a dozen villains. Are these villains part of some gang? An organization? Would most people know them as individuals as well, or just as a group? Are they minions of a more prominent villain?

Does the scene take place in Gotham? Is this while Bane controls the city? Is Bane in the scene? How about Catwoman? Gordon? ""Robin""?

Does the scene take place in Gotham? Yes Is this while Bane controls the city? Yes! Technically, there are two different points during Bane's intial takeover the opportunity arose. Is Bane in the scene? Yes How about Catwoman? Yes Gordon? ""Robin""? They're shown a couple times, but they're not in the relevant place with Bane and Catwoman.

Maybe my memory's faulty, but is there a scene where Arkham Asylum is opened up and the prisoners released? Were you hoping to see a few familiar faces? Is Arkham Asylum relevant at all?

SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*****************************************************************

When trailers for The Dark Knight Rises came out, they repeatedly showed the mass prison release. I was so excited by this, hoping a few cameos from some of Batman's more human villains would appear. Unfortunately, in all my viewings I have never noticed any. I think this was a big waste of a cool opportunity.

Congrats, AlexanderHamilton, for solving alomst totally solo!
