Caped Crusader: New Batman Film Rumors

    I could totally see something like that.

    Now, here's what I wanna know... if the Joker's around, will he be an unseen menace, like Frogboy suggested, or will he be recast? I feel the former works better, as a tribute to Heath... and if the Penguin and Riddler are also there, I feel it would be pretty cluttered with 3 villains (Since the others had around 2... Scarecrow was mentioned... don't know if that was really him)

    But with this probably being the last Nolan Batman, having more villains could work (just as it did for Spiderman).

    greenlite, I like your ideas, though I think I'll have a face palm moment if there is too much focus on Bruce not having a girlfriend. There are just too many angsty superheros who can't keep a girlfriend out there and it gets old after a while.

    Wait? Are you talking about Spiderman 3? Cause I heard alot of people say it was disappointing because there were too many villains.


    I think that with good writing, it could work... But I just don't know.

    But it still drew money & that's the focus of corporate business, for the most part. Plus, it is going to have another sequel, supposedly, whereas this third film will--in all likelihood--be Nolan's last run with The Caped Crusader.

    Despite the fact that if they were real there would be a fangirl mob six feet deep wanting them *gets in line for Spider-Man, pre-Spider-Man 3*

    For me it was not the villains that ruined Spider-Man 3, it was Peter himself..Honestly, it was suppose to make him truly evil, not a member of a emo rock band :coy:

    That applies to a lot of fictional characters, not just superheroes, though. And it applies to fanboys with female characters, as well.

    I know, but superheros seem to have a lot more of the 'woe is me no one could love a hero/monster/geek/crazy person' storylines :coy:

    Point taken. I think that has something to do with who writes the storyline & who edits it, as well.

    Well...in Spiderman 3, he DID have a fangirl mob, but they only wanted him for superficial reasons...No one loved him the way he needed to be loved, except Mary-Jane.

    I think the purpose of Venom making him more Emo than Evil...was that it would be easier for the audience to identify with the change, because it's something that we can see happen to all of our own friends when they become popular or change themselves to fit in.

    I've always felt that Spiderman in particular was geared towards an emotional storyline, rather than an epic good vs evil storyline.

    Bea:zany:{Personally, I'd rather turn evil than emo...or elmo...}regard

    I think Beck had a specific sort of mob in mind, and not the superficial kind.

    In my imaginary movie, the closest you're gonna get with the Joker is a visit to his cell or a view of his back. I prefer him to be someone people refer to during their conversations rather than taking the centre stage...therefore really there're only two villains...I think the Joker should be retired the way the Yankees retire Babe Ruth Jersey, at least in the Nolan franchise. And you're right it's a fitting tribute for Heath too.

    I think the Riddler might become an extended Harvey Dent as well cuz he's the good bad guy so you can create some sympathy for him like they did for Harvey...but Two-Face only exploded for like 10min. and the Riddler can explode for the whole movie

    I think we might need 3+ hrs if we wanna develope a third villain (other than the Joker cuz he's not gonna appear & we already know him)...it'll end up like The Lord of the Rings, movie marathon finale. Or we might get a venom...and from what I've heard people don't really like the way he was developed...and rumors he will be in the 4th film? Cheers^^

    But for all we know, Barbra/Batgirl and Richard/Robin won't be in Nolan's films because--as noted--Nolan prefers his Bruce/Batman solo.

    I know and Bale will tie himself up if Robin comes along. What I meant was instead of creating another Rachael Dawes or Catwoman I prefer Nolan spending more time on family values with Gordon's "ordinary" family ie leave Robin and Batgirl for other directors who wanna take over from the 4th film

    If Robin has to be in one of these Batman films, i want to see him be a 12 year old... similar to the Robin seen in The Batman, or the Kid's WB season of Batman TAS... only a LOT darker. Not Emo... more like just as serious in bringing scum to justice as Bruce would... only a lot more reckless....

    Though, I'd rather NO Robin.
  17. wwfpooh

    So a younger Titans Robin (in Titans, Robin was a mini-Batman, sans the brooding aspect [which he managed well when he did straddle that line]), basically?

    If that encourages kids to fight criminals rather than playing shooting games and end up shooting people in the shopping mall...then go for it^^

    Hmmm..well, kids that end up shooting others usually have bigger troubles than the fact that they played shooting video games. I played DOOM since I was 12 years old and I did not grow up to be a murderer. My vote goes for the lack of understanding and help from others that the child maybe did not get that they in place of that support filled with time playing video games:sympathy:...But meh, back on topic...:)

    And many of us played that and Mortal Kombat, but we knew the difference between the visual "reality" of games and the real world.
