"fine, we'll let you break batman's back, but you have to offer a new hero at the end while we scream from the rooftops that a reboot is imminent." if it wasn't DC/Warner Bros I'd never believe a studio would follow their biggest hit ever with a sequel that depressing and irrelevant.

there should be several batmans. they would get more done.

There is no way Gordon-Levitt becomes Batman. I wouldn't be surprised if he were either a) turned into a villain or b) killed in this.

I do respect Nolan for apparently stopping the trickle of trailers after this one. No more hints a la "Prometheus"(until some stupid site spoils it for everyone).

Per reboots, at least that trend makes sense in the context of comic book movies. Comics are rebooting all the time. It's not like the reboot of "Friday the 13th" or whatever, totally gratuitous. Comic movie reboots are in keeping with a proud tradition: new artist/writer, new comic.

Nude writer, nude comic.

hope nolan's/dc's bright enough to know finality doesn't necessarily mean offing the lead so much as completing an arc. Bale can just be like "ah, a job well done, time for a nap" after putting Gotham in a happy place. Batman doesn't have to announce his retirement or turn into a franchise or anything. And then they don't have to go to great lengths to say Justice League Batman 2014 has absolutely nothing to do with the dead/retired batman you saw two years ago.

Read that as 'Bane' initially and was all "Well that's one way to look at it..."

I kind of assume that with all the "WILL HE DIE?" angles in the trailers, there's no way they'll actually kill him.

They're going to kill everyone *but* Batman, and he'll be left looking over the smoldering remains of Gotham thinking, "what now?"

some people die

Probably Catwoman or Marion Cotillard, because Nolan always kills a woman to give his lead something to angst over.

wouldn't be surprised if they did something kinda like the end of the dark knight returns, though, with bats and/or wayne appearing to die

Marion Cotillard is gonna be the villain, cozy up to Bruce Wayne and then BAM he wakes up with Bane throwing him in a pit

I totally don't have a problem with this. I do have a problem with telling the same origin story over and over.

the first two movies made a big deal about how physically punishing the batman line of work is, i wonder if the third won't go to something permanent

like a convalescence home for batmen?

that would be comedy central i think

batman gets broken back, wayne corps develops groundbreaking medical appliances, gotham's economy is revived by the growth of its biotech & manufacturing sectors, crime goes down. a rising dark knight raises all boats.

Can't forgive the missed opportunity of "a rising dark knight raises all bats." Cancelling my subscription.

Batman drops his "no guns" stance, shoots Bane in head with bazooka.

for ex. Singer's "Superman" reboot was totally stupid but at least it wasn't a retread of material

batman abandons gotham to crime, galt-style, to prove the virtue & necessity of selfishness & vigilantism

any bets on whether Liam Neeson shows up in this in flashbacks or if he's actually in some part?

I honestly didn't mind it. I thought Kevin Spacey was the wrong pick for Lex Luthor.

Unless Nolan goes balls-out and actually brings in the Lazarus Pit to re-introduce Neeson/heal Bruce Wayne after Bane fucks him up.

Nolan won't bring in anything explicitly magical/unrealistic

Roger Barfing (Shakey Mo Collier), Wednesday, 2 May 2012 16:24 (1 year ago) Permalink

It's actually not a bad idea to let Nolan get real dark before a reboot, considering audiences wound up giving more money to Batman Forever than Batman Returns. Though it depends how dark is dark and how much the next movie is really a "reboot".
