Icons Unearthed Batman

VICE’s Icons Unearthed: Batman once again looks into the world of the Caped Crusader, exploring the cultural impact and memorable moments from the Batman franchise. In this episode, “I’m Not Wearing Hockey Pads,” the focus is on a specific line from The Dark Knight, the 2008 blockbuster film directed by Christopher Nolan.

The episode, airing on Wednesday April 17, centers around the iconic exchange between Batman (Christian Bale) and one of the Batman wannabes, highlighting the distinction between the real deal and the pretenders. When the copycat Batman asks, “What’s the difference between you and me?” Batman responds with the now-famous line, “I’m not wearing hockey pads!

This line has been the subject of much debate, with some viewers mishearing it as “I’m not wearing hockey pants.” However, the correct phrase is indeed “hockey pads,” as confirmed by the movie script and various subtitles. The line showcases Batman’s dry wit and his disdain for the wannabes who try to emulate him with their cheap cosplay.
