Maybe JGL is Damian al-Ghul/Wayne.

who is left in the inception cast that isn't in this series, now? is it just juno and caprio?

Philip Nunez, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 20:27 (1 year ago) Permalink

Maybe he's the cro-mag Bat-Man from Neal Adam's series. Or, even better, the evolved raptor Robin.

money is on Bane's "grows up in a prison" story somehow linked to Ra's al Ghul, either him being responsible for it or Bane recruited after that

funny enough, if you were shooting frank miller's the dark knight, ellen page would be about right for the robin part.

Trailer looks great. Though I'm a bit surprised that Nolan seems to have taken those overblown, editorially-driven "big event" storylines from the 90s (Knightfall, Cataclysm) as the main inspiration for the story.

The Pet Shop Boys as a very elegant Batman and Robin, this is a vision.

my money's on a nightwing type character, skipping robin altogether

I thought about this too; if Gordon-Levitt is supposed to be a version of Dick Grayson/Nightwing, maybe the movie will end with Bruce Wayne dying/becoming paralyzed and Gordon-Levitt's character becoming the new Batman, just like they did with Dick Grayson in the recent "Batman RIP" comic book storyline. (IIRC, didn't Dick become Batman for a while in the original Bane story arc too, after Bane broke Bruce's back?) That way they could do both the "Bruce Wayne sacrifices everything" story and end the movie on a hopeful note, as well as set things up for the future Batman movies.

Tuomas, Wednesday, 2 May 2012 09:15 (1 year ago) Permalink

I thought they were rebooting the franchise. So basically they could have Batman die and the world explode in a nuclear blast and it wouldn't stop the fact that in 5-6 years we'll be plunking down $$$ to see a new version of the Batman origin story.

Emperor Cos Dashit (Adam Bruneau), Wednesday, 2 May 2012 13:19 (1 year ago) Permalink

maybe JG-L is just like his character in Inception where he doesn't really do much of anything but Nolan wrote him a part because he wanted him in the ensemble

He's be tossed around by Bane in zero gravity.

this is pretty much what everyone seems to be saying.

i suppose ultimately only one gravelly voice can prevail.

short of something that played out the whole Grayson/Nightwing arc over a couple movies (and even that would have to be done really well to work), the idea of a Batman movie with someone other than Bruce Wayne under the mask can fuck off imo

i was responding to garda/tuomas's scenario, though (xpost)

"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.

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 2 May 2012 13:55 (1 year ago) Permalink

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.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 2 May 2012 14:04 (1 year ago) Permalink

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..."

Tom Hardy as violent city masseuse. "You should be more relaxed now!"

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 2 May 2012 14:42 (1 year ago) Permalink

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?"

bane will fuck batman up and throw him in a well, then batman will mope in a wheelchair while gotham cries out "why hath the batman forsaken us?," catwoman and JGL search for sad beardo bruce wayne, find him, there's a physical therapy & training montage, some people die, batman lives on with ETERNAL GUILT

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.
