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..."

croup's total distaste for the idea of him ever dying is making me bloodthirsty to see a dead Bats

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

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

p much

catbus otm (gbx), Wednesday, 2 May 2012 15:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

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

Comic movie reboots are in keeping with a proud tradition: new artist/writer, new comic.

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

goole, Wednesday, 2 May 2012 15:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

like a convalescence home for batmen?

mh, Wednesday, 2 May 2012 15:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

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.

How do you rise with a broken back?

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.

scene.

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

zubaz fupa (elmo argonaut), Wednesday, 2 May 2012 16:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

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.

My bet on Neeson is flashback.

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 (2 years 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".

He's always grounded that stuff as cutting-edge Wayne Industries/military R&D stuff, though.
