SIX DIFFERENT SHADES OF AWESOME. Man, I hope this is just a flat-out Batman number rather than Batman: Year One or Batman Vs. Superman or any other of the concept pieces they've got kicking around. Nolan finally get shte blockbuster baton passed to him...supoib.

This is great. If it's half as good as Insomnia and Memento, it will be head and shoulders above every other comic book movie.

We also need the return of Keaton.

Then we need a good villain, even though they're running out of ideas. The Scarecrow, maybe?

Well, if this movie is a break from the previous four, I wouldn't mind seeing one of the previous villains used. I mean, can it be any more appropriate if Batman's nemesis in the new film is The Joker?

My brother has the trade paperback of Batman: Year One, and out of what I've read and what my brother explained to me in terms of the story, it would make an INCREDIBLE film.

As far as I understood the article, Batman vs. Superman and Year One will be made?

I think it would be interesting if they were to do the Batman series in an Elseworlds type of way, where the Batman persona could be played by different actors in different realities. Does anyone recall the Batman: The Animated Series episode late in its run where three kids were takling about Batman and their perceptions were varied, and the two alternate renditions they showed were old-school and very dark? It would be cool twist from the movie-sequel-sequel (ad infinitum) model.

Don't hold your breath guys, there is nothing official or solid about this at all? Sure at the moment Nolan may be the guy who does Batman. But remember something else. A while ago, it was McG who was to direct Superman, than it was Brett Ratner, last week it was Michael Bay, and now it isn't. Quite a while ago it was Kevin Smith and Tim Burton who were supposed to revamp Superman. A few months ago Wolfgang Peterson and Andrew Kevin Walker were developing Batman vs. Superman and it appeared that Jude Law was playing Superman and Colin Farrel as Batman.

Let's go back even further...remember when it was Darren Aronofsky and Frank Miller working on Batman: Year One? Or Boaz Yakin, Paul Dini, and Bruce Timm on Batman Beyond? This changes from WEEK TO WEEK people. Sure you can get excited now, but you will be even MORE disappointed if it isn't true. Plus, do you really want the current Warner Brothers studio to make new movies for beloved characters like Batman and Superman when they would probably just screw them up (COUGH COUGH T3 COUGH COUGH).

The prospect of Nolan doing it sounds cool, but where's the clause that says Jon Peters or whatever producers or exec. will give him some good amount of creative control or not shape the movie into some ridiculous piece of crap that they think would sell lots of money. Anyway, from what I understand, the new Batman 5 project is NOW supposedly called "The Frightening" and I believe the villain is the scarecrow. But whatever, next week it could be Bruce Wayne: Streaker with the Grey Ghost as the villain.

Batman: Year One would not make an incredible movie...at least not while Warner Brothers are the guys producing it.

Here's the thing a lot of people don't understand, WB pretty much owns DC. DC has NO amount of creative control over their comic book properties turned movies. Marvel on the other hand, is a separate entity from the studios that make films based on their properties, and Marvel Studios does have creative control and input into their character based films.

This maybe negative or harsh...but its the truth.

As long as Burton has creative control and the new movie has the same basic look and feel of the first four, then I won't mind. Do you think they could get Nicholson to do the Joker again? If they did, someone recognizable needs to be Batman.

Why oh why would you want any Batman movie to look like Batman and Robin?

Anyway, since when is Darren Afronsky NOT doing Batman: Year One?

I think since Aronofsky has been trying to make movies like "The Fountain" which fell apart TWICE after production started two times.

the gossip people are saying that WB is now leaning toward "Batman: The Frightening" but I guess in all honesty who knows? Right now we are reading that it is CHRISTOPHER NOLAN now instead of Darren Aronofsky, but that could change just as quickly I guess.

It wasn't so much the "look" of Batman and Robin that ruined that movie, it was the sappy storyline with Alfred being sick and the addition Batgirl. It was too bloated. I thought Clooney made a good Batman too, they just gave him a crap movie to be in.

Get West to play Batmam only if you can get Shatner to play the villain. Any movie that put those guys with dueling dialogue would quite possibly be the greatest movie ever made.

West: 'You... dia-boli-cal... Still up to your nefarious deeds old friend...'

Shatner: "STILL!!.... OLD!! ... FRIEND!!"

and yes, I agree, Burton ruined Batman. I'm a Batman smarky smark too!

My understanding is this:

Batman IV, D: Christopher Nolan, W: ???, There's no story or anything. Warner execs refuted the Scarecrow rumor, for now. Tim Burton isn't involved at all. Period.

Batman vs. Superman, D: ???, W: ???, With Wolfgang Petersen doing another movie first, it's in limbo. They may do it without him, but the buzz is that the execs are satisied enough with his ideas that they're willing to wait until he's done.

Catwoman, D: ???, W: ???, Ashley Judd MAY star, but she's tied up with a zillion other things at once. It's still in development HELL, which means it'll be at least a year or two before we see shit about it.

Batman: Year One, D: Darren Aronofsky, W: Frank Miller and Darren Aronofsky; Nobody's signed, but Aronofsky and Miller are doing the script and once/if it gets, Aronofsky will sign on the dotted line to direct.

The EARLIEST we'll see any of these films is 2005.

YES, YES, YES. Keaton should be the first choice as Batman. I remember after the last Batman they were considering Howard Stern as The Scarecrow.

"and yes, I agree, Burton ruined Batman. I'm a Batman smarky smark too!"

See, this makes me laugh. Burton's take on Batman and Gotham city was much much closer to Bob Kane's original comics than anything else concieved by somebody not named Bob Kane. So really, the Adam West Batman is a bastardisation of the original and best Dark-As-Hell Batman.


...Although I would LOVE to see a West/Shatner face-off.

How did Tim Burton ruin Batman?



It was Joel Schumacher that ruined Batman for trying to make it more like the TV show.

The only 'questionable' thing in the first Batman movie was the Machine guns in the Batmobile.

Year after year, the United States has gone to elaborate lengths, spent enormous sums, taken great risks to build and keep weapons of mass destruction. But why? The only possible explanation, the only possible use they could have for those weapons, is to dominate, intimidate, or attack.

I always thought that Steve Buscemi could be a really good Scarecrow.
