This is a Merriam Webster definition for "leap":
: a choice made in an area of ultimate concern
a leap of faith
In the movie "The Batman" I saw someone say:
Are you sure this isn't a leap?
Edit:(some more context asked for in the comments) The scene occurs after Batman received a cipher from a criminal who left it for him, and which, after solving it, reads "DRIVE". He takes commissioner Gordon with whom he works on this case, to a multilevel parking garage that belonged to a murdered victim, near which the cipher was found.They are entering the garage and looking at the cars when Gordon says to Batman:
Where to even start?
You sure this isn’t a leap? “Drive” could mean anything.
is this just an ellipsis of the phrase "leap of faith" ? Can I say "leap" meaning "leap of faith"?
