BATMAN: INTIMIDATION.... the title of Nolan's flick'

Published at: Sept. 2, 2003, 9:21 a.m. CST by staff

Hey folks, Harry here... well seems that some test work is being done on "a" BATMAN film at Shepperton Studios under the name of BATMAN: INTIMIDATION. Is this the name of Christopher Nolan's Batman film? Given Nolan's admitted wish to go more old school in terms of the effects work for his film and his devotion to the original BLADE RUNNER as the film that highly influenced him wishing to make movies in the first place... I'm excited about him making a BATMAN film. I'd love to know as much as possible about what he's up to... who is involved in these test shots, what are they, is there a script for BATMAN: INTIMIDATION? Here's what we know, hoping to hear more...

Dear Harry,

I am working at Shepperton Studios in England and staff from other productions are all talking about a new Batman movie gearing up for production here. They are calling it Batman: Intimidation, apparently they are doing test shots at the moment. A colleague knows someone on the production and I shall get the name of the director...

Okay for now  

Clancy

    Following in the footsteps of X2 - X-Men United I see

    by Terry_1978

    Well, not really..even though at first I despised that title, when you think about it, X-Men United is very similar to a lot of the Marvel titles, a la Extreme X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, and what have you. Batman:Intimidated or Intimidation could very well be a decent graphic novel title.

    A Batman Inside Every One Of Us...

    by CharlieTupperman

    I would like to think that every one of us has our own Batman inside of us.... fighting for 'good'. Some people's Batman might be 'kindness', or others perhaps an unlimited supply of 'love' to give... myself, MY Batman is the ability to spray a terrible stink out from under my nipples. I've only used this to shoo away neighbourhood cats from the trashbins in the alley so far, but I'm hoping that soon I can 'evolve' this talent into something greater.......... like perhaps shooting the stink out of my tearducts as well? You think? Let's cross our fingers. YAAAAY BATMAN!!!

    Re: illegally obtained scripts etc

    by Regicidal_Maniac

    When a synopsis to a script or the actual script itself shows up on the net sites like this one destroy any hope in the project moving forward. Hell sometimes even the release of the title is enough to kill the project. The whiny fuckers who've molested and murdered their inner children bitch and complain that their every expectation has not been met by the second draft treatment and poof suddenly executives are putting their effort into other projects. The net has killed the process. Evolution I guess. Movies now go into production without scripts, or even actors, who then aren't even given the full details of their character in case word leaks out and they are consequently thoroughly underprepared for their parts resulting in bad performances hidden by flashy CGI effects and not given any kind of test screening for fear that audiences won't like it straight away and will be registering their disgust throughout the world within mintues. Good films don't stand a chance anymore, and executives have realised there's not much point in producing films with easily described content in the form of a 'plot' so they no longer bother. "This film will suck" so it is spoken and thus the prophecy will be fulfilled.

    Why CAN'T it just be BATMAN or BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT?

    by Drath

    Why a subtitle? And why one so lame as "Intimidation?" Let's not split hairs, we're going to ignore the events of the '89 movie and it's sequels, right? Sure we are, because they killed the Joker after saying HE killed Batman's parents. Plenty of reason to ignore it before even trying to look and see what was wrong with the sequels (in a nutshell: EVERYTHING). So why must we avoid just calling the new movie Batman? They didn't fear confusion with the 60's Batman in '89, why worry about it now? Everyone knows the last one sucked, just admit it publicly that the last one sucked so much corn that you're rebooting the franchise. It's NOT THAT HARD! There's no good reason to give it a more complicated name than Batman, only imagined ones. Don't be pussies about it. Do it right and don't let the title suck like Batman Forever or Batman Resurrection or something equally stupid.

    BATMAN : PRETENSION.

    by Buzz Maverik

    Warner Brothers is not going to release a film called BATMAN : INTIMIDATION. This is the kind of title a comic book geek would come up with. Said geek would not understand that the general public would laugh at the kind of faux-badass posturings in modern comics and that the studio wants to please more than just the 3 or 4 wussy badasses hanging around each comic book shop across the country. Hopefully, an exciting, intelligent, fun and well made film will be produced some day.

    Detective Comics

    by Liquid_Daze

    I tend to think the action genre has gone as far as Hollywood can take it. Bruce Wayne doesn't have superpowers; what makes him interesting is his drive and dedication, and how he has made himself into the world's greatest detective. I would prefer to see a "Year One" type story, that during the first act shows Bruce training around the world with all his teachers and then has him returning to Gotham. Show his first forays into crimebusting. You don't need the suit, or explosions, or multiple super_criminals (Fuck You, Burton & Schumacker!). Show the crimesolver / strategist / martial artist / scientist / engineer / playboy. The firsts in this movie can be so cool: first time we see the final costume, the batmobile, the completion of the batcave, the creation of the gadgets and toolbelt. Sorry for the verbosity; all Nolan needs to do is make a good detective picture, the details of the Batman character take care of themselves. PS --> Brad Dourif at the end as the Joker. GORDON: Somebody named the Joker says he's going to poison Gotham's water supply.

    by ZSmooth

    The Joker arranges to have the entire Batcave replaced with identical props then watches batman's reaction as movers re-possess everything and destroy them in the process. Batman gets on the Batphone and yells, "THIS AIN'T FUNNY, YO, I'M BROKE!! HOW AM I GONNA FIGHT CRIME WHEN I'M BROKE!! Then, after the movers "accidentally" set jason Todd's Robin costume on fire, the Joker runs out from behind the Giant Penny and screams, "YOU'VE BEEN PUNK'D!!!" Then laughs hysterically... Bat-Timberlake gets all "homeboy" again and says, "Yo, man, I knew you were just clowning me, dog." Then beats the shit out of the Joker... stopping just short of killing him... as his his way. I predict an 80 million dollar July 4th weekend opening off that premise.

    Batman: Bleak & Desolate

    by amateurscientist

    yeah I'm really... intimidated. is this really what Batman fans want? I mean, did anybody even READ the dark knight? he wasn't this over-grim, over-dark asshole. he was a hard edged badass, there's a difference. it's cool, that David Goyer has written the script, and it's cool that Nolan is directing (I suppose). I was really curious to see what Darren Aronofsky would've come up with though... oh well. I will say that the DEAD END movie just told the Brother's Warner that if some unknown mask-maker can make Batman look half-decent, then perhaps they should test out the new director and see if all the looks, actors, set, etcetera are all upto par before launching an all out million dollar production. superherohype talked about casting Batman a little ways back. some british actor. maybe this for tests. maybe not. all I know is that "INTIMIDATION" just sucks as a title. sorry Warners, but it does.

    by Mosquito March

    Nolan Disneyfied a perfectly good foreign film that didn't need to be remade. I don't know if you saw the original, but what made it so good was that the main character is revealed to be a morally-destitute monster that makes his criminal prey seem normal. In Nolan's version, Pacino does some bad things, but Nolan refuses to let Pacino remain a horrible person. Not only does he clean up the sexual assault scene that was your first real inclination that Stellan Skaarsgard really was unremitting scum, but he lets the character off the moral hook at the end, as he lays dying, making him seem almost *cuddly*. He took any bite that the original had and deleted it. And, added a lame-o Hollywood shoot-out that echoed L.A. CONFIDENTIAL. Fuck that. And, fuck MEMENTO, too. The only reason I cared to find out how it ended - I'm sorry, *began* - was Guy Pearce's performance. And, when we actually get to the end - I'm sorry, the *beginning* - it turns out that the whole mystery is based on run-of-the-mill cop shit that we've already seen in a million movies and TV shows. The movie is famous for its construction, not its imagination, which was severely lacking. I *am* interested to see how Nolan chooses to make a BATMAN film, but it's partly because I think he's just going to disappoint everybody that thinks he's going to turn in some artistic masterpiece with a character that means nothing more than $$$ to Warner Bros. I don't think he's the *artiste* that everybody seems to think he is - I think he's a Hollywood tool that got his foot in the door by making a seemingly artsy film (dreamed up by his brother and modeled on Harold Pinter), and is lining up to help make the kinds of movies that his producers want made. He may very well make a good big budget action spectacle. But, I have no illusions about it being a work of undiluted genius from an edgy young director. If his de-fanging of INSOMNIA is any indication, Nolan has no edge at all, and he's now swimming in a kiddie pool with about fifty high-powered lifeguards watching his every move.

    Go watch Nolan's first film "Following;" if you can pull your head out of your ass long enough, I think it's 90 mins. If you like the "original" Insomnia so much then, uhh, watch it again. By the way, "Point Of No Return" the "remake" of "Le Femme Nikita" is not as good as the original, either... go figure. "Memento" is a well-crafted film whose premise has probably been bandied about for decades, but who's been able to pull it off? To even attempt it? "Insomnia" is not a perfect thriller, but far from the turd you make it out to be. Nolan gets good performances, has a distinct style, and understands subtlety.

    BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT'S COMPLETE AND TOTAL LACK OF ENTHUSIASM

    by Devil'sOwn

    Okay, Brotherhood of Warner- fans, they who care about this shit in the first place, are lookin' for a KILLER Batman movie. What that entails is twists and turns- plot development, not just one set-piece scene after another. Nolan's a proven commodity, he's shown us in Memento and Insomnia that he can pull off character development, conflict, and suspense. Batman is ofcourse a vigilante/ detective trying to bring order to a city seemingly plagued by insanity. That means NONE of the following: Bitchy Alfred, campy cameos, fetish-imagery (mmmaybe a little), killer penguins, handsome-young-actor-of-the-moment as Robin, over-the-top-school-of-acting villains, stupid girlfriends who not only deduce the hero's real identity, but saunter right into his most Holy of Holies- the Batcave, and, for the love of Bill Finger, NO homages to the 60's TV show. We know you wanna make money, but Batfans deserve a well-thought-out take on the mythos. Now get Christian Bale in the suit and do the damn thing!!

    I saw "Following" during it's very brief theatrical run, it played at one of the Landmark theaters here in California. I held off on "Memento," originally, because I wasn't sold on Guy Pearce. That changed after I saw the film. I don't normally flame people in a talkback, but I don't like seeing someone put the razor to a good independent director. "Following" & "Memento" as you know are both indies with "Insomnia" serving as Nolan's studio calling card. It was his film to prove to the studios that he could create something of quality. He took on the challenge of remaking an excellent Sweedish pic, and it resembles nothing Bay/Ratner/Sena. Plus how many people have a cast like Pacino, Williams, and Swank eager to work with them. Please list the name of the Jeremy Irons film you were refering.

    BladeRunnerUnit: Spare me the "Grammar Nazi" theatrics.

    by Mosquito March

    You can't hide behind the "I'm Portuguese, I can't help it!" excuse forever. You know that you're operating in a primarily English-speaking forum on an American-run website. If you can't figure out a way to clearly get your thoughts across to such a community, that's your problem, not the community's. And it has nothing to do with nationalism or racism or whatever you're going to try to turn this into. I'm no patriot, and my grammar isn't always perfect. This is actually the first time I've said anything to anybody about the way they write their posts, because this is the Internet, and it has its own protocol. I'm commenting on yours because you smugly think you're getting a witty point across when you're not. If you can't communicate and be understood, you shouldn't expect people to pay the extra-close attention to your non-sensical musings that you apparently think they should. And you shouldn't throw terms like "Nazi" around when you're referring to yourself and your own insignificant issues. This is not fucking Krakow circa 1939 - this is AICN. Besides, you said you never even saw the original INSOMNIA, so why the fuck are you even IN this discussion? Why are you calling it a good movie if you haven't seen it? If you spoke English as a first language, you STILL wouldn't have any frame of reference in the discussion. In actuality, you entered this fray so you could make a little joke about my screen name (a joke that sounds more like a line from a Bjork song than an insult). So, forgive me if I don't think what you have to say is important enough for me to try to crack your code. At least Liquid_Daze has seen all the films in question, and makes his statements clear. PS - You couldn't even comprehend the comment about the moons of Neptune, or you would understand that it doesn't matter which moon. The moons are irrelevant. But, if it makes you feel better, try Proteus. Triton is too touristy.

    You've went and got your nose all out of joint just because you were unable to decipher B.R.U.'s E.S.L. post. How many languages can you speak/write Mos? His point was easy to understand once you get past the overly formal writing style but you obviously couldn't be bothered. I don't know anything about you, except that you're a redneck. Be a little more tolerant or move on.

    batman 5 not intimidated but frightened

    by Toth

    the title must be "Batman: The Frightening" since www.batmanthefrightning.com & .net are registered to WB, and "Batman: Intimidation" (.com & .net also registered to WB) truthfully sounds like crap.
