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.

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

^^^also this

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

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

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.

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

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.

guys what if Bane's mask gives him SUPER DRUG ENERGY and it's a SUPER DRUG that can bring someone back from near-death if you're directly exposed to it. like getting thrown in a pit of it can do that, but constant low-level exposure would make you super strong and give you great regenerative powers

this is definitely not what the plot will do, but hey, whatever

just watched batman begins again... hard to sympathise with the little kid in danger now i know he grows up to be king joffrey

I wouldn't write off the Lazarus Pit as they did some shooting in India and the Chand Baori step well is pretty what what I think one of those would look like.

isnt that just the The Dark Knight poster with more explosions

Hungry4Ass, Tuesday, 22 May 2012 03:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

more like the dark nought rises

A Little Princess btw (s1ocki), Tuesday, 22 May 2012 05:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

Still stoked, but yeah, it's one of the earlier posters with added fire and dude.

Am I the only one who sees Batman looking at his crotch, waiting for his "Dark Knight" to rise?

Tuomas, Tuesday, 22 May 2012 07:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

Also, why use such a bland and generic font for the title? It's a Batman movie!

Tuomas, Tuesday, 22 May 2012 07:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

theyve been using that typeface since batman begins, its brand continuity

Hungry4Ass, Tuesday, 22 May 2012 08:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

At one point in the 3rd trailer I thought Batman looked slighter than usual, i.e. JGL rather than CB...?

What point exactly?
