Three DARK KNIGHT Images Are Stalking Around The Nets!! But, For How Long??

Merrick here...
Okay, well, these renegade images have been circulating for a few days now. At first they seemed to disappear from sites and message boards pretty damn quickly, so I didn't see much point in posting them here. However, the pics have recently enjoyed some amount of hang time on a few URLs, giving me hope (admittedly a fool's hope) that they might endure here for more than 33 seconds. With that in mind, a few images from THE DARK KNIGHT. That third one...is Heath wearing a nurse's dress...kinda freaks me out. Big thanks to everyone who wrote in about these, helping us track them down.

    by gruntybear

    Just put the fucking gaping cooze shots in the centerfold like you keep teasing, you wanna-be Maxim for the Nerd-set. Quit pretending to be about comics and just cover the damned whiz-bang blockbuster movies and rare, collectible, HTF!!! paraphrenalia that you seem fucking obsessed over. Axe the pointless price guide, devote 80% of your "comics" content to the shysters at CGC and the remaining 20% on fellating Joe "It's fucking magic - we don't have to explain it" Quesada and fucking put that plasticene-lipped, tranny horror-show Angeline Jolie on every fucking cover. Quit trying to be everything to everybody and just GIVE IN to your most base interests. When not even the tweeny, proto-geeks just sprouting their first pubes that are your apparent target audience find anything of interest in your 'zine, it's time for it to go.

    diff between Jack and Heath...

    by Gatsbys West Egg Omlet

    jack is a character actor. he pretty much does one thing, granted really well, and there has been enough work for him and his shtick. <p>Heath was an actor's actor. he actually changed his performances for each roll. he's missed, and not just by the geeks who will want another Joker from him.

  • April 3, 2008, 10:24 a.m. CST

    Is that the scene where he scars Harvey?

    by UGABugKiller

    Is that Harvey in the bed? Is he about to frak up Harvey's face by throwing some acid on it?<br><br>I was hoping that the Joker would be on trial and throw acid on Harvey's face during cross-examination, and then the movie would end with the coda of Two Face walking into a bar, asking for a drink, and freaking out the bar tender as he flips a coin. That would be the balls ending like Batman getting the Joker card and telling Gordon he'd "check it out."

    by RockLobster800

    thats a pretty damn impressive rant-Ive never read Wizard but I kinda want to hate it so I can agree with you! So, are these pics officially legit? cos the nurse one does look kinda photoshopped...and even the cop one could have been an image of Heath in Monsters Ball altered...but if they are real then Im very happy! Imagine if the first pic of the Joker released had been the one of him in the nurses uniform? people would have flipped out so much I'd probably still be laughing...they play up the playful side of Mr. J alot more too....although I'm loving what we've seen so far I was a bit worried that they made him a bit to morose and ironically, serious-now seing him dress up as a nurse to infiltrate a hospital with his makeup still on has cleared away those fears!

    DK, Hellboy, Iron Man - all look incredible

    by kevred

    If they're anywhere near as good in reality as they are in the stills/teasers, they'll be such an incredible amount of fun.<p>Those new Hellboy pics are fantastic--especially photo 20, which is so striking and weird. I do wish the scenes were lit more darkly overall--more Mignola-like--but once again they seem to have absolutely nailed it visually.<p>You'll notice I didn't mention Lucas' prequel-looking Indy. Maybe that'll be great too--I hope it is, I really do!--but the footage hasn't resonated with me.<p>But it'll probably be good, and this will hopefully be the best popcorn-movie summer in ages.

    That second pic, a new origin for the Joker?

    by Reel American Hero

    If he's in disguise it's not a very good one, but it almost makes me think that they're giving a new origin for this version. Something like he was a cop, but then got fucked up by some Arkham escapees during the story from the last film which causes him to lose his shit. That'd be a new take on it if they went that route. Chances are it's just him in disguise though. He looks even creepier without the facepaint I must say.

Its the only way to get him as Gothams rich and powerfull are in hiding Jokers earlier threat that he was coming after them unless Batman reveals himself to Joker, also explains J's hate for the Faux Batmen as shown in the first pic! ***** END SPOILERS!*****

    Grunty, I kinda hear what you're saying.

    by Buckys_Kick_Ass_Arm

    the focus of that 'zine just jumbles too often. and the price guide just doesn't work. If instead they just mentioned 5 books on the rise and 5 books that have cooled and then have an internet link for a full price guide I'd be happier. They also need to get out of Marvel's bed and cover more indie stuff instead of just mention it. Then again... It IS a business so i guess they have to do whatever they can for the sake of sales... even if that does require dwindling quality. PS. I'm surprised by how awesome these pics look. Hopefully two-face scene in this movie turns out well... We all know how much of a let-down the Venom scene was.

    Spoiler theory

    by a rolling stone

    SPOILER THEORY: (That’s right, I’m tagging this a “spoiler”, even though it’s just a theory). Anthony Michael Hall has been sited playing a wannabe batman, an "Imitation Hero" and an adversarial character in TDK. Then they told us he’s playing some nobody named Mike Engel, but do you remember his original quote when we all first found out he was in the movie? Hall said: "I signed a confidentiality agreement, and I can't say which part I'm playing because it affects the story," said Hall. "I can't give away the suspense - it's a $200 million surprise, and I don't want to be the guy to ruin it." Mike Nobody Engel, some dude made up just for the movie, is not a $200 million surprise. Slade Wilson, as in DEATHSTROKE, as in THE TERMINATOR, is a $200 million surprise, an anti-Batman of sorts, kind of an imitation hero, and definitely an adversarial character. ADD to that the fact we know Chris Nolan approved a Deathstroke action-figure and see if your nipples don’t get hard, too.

    I just thought maybe if the Joker does sic the Gotham mobs on Batman, Slade would be a guy they might call. It wouldn't be much of a stretch, right? Somebody's gotta pull the trigger. But if he's hanging out with Gordon on the roof, that kinda sinks my battleship. Maybe the action figure's a red herring.

    RE: Quality of Images & Dark Knight

    by jorson28

    These images only confirm what probably everyone following the production suspected -- Nolan is no-holds-barred in his interpretation of the Joker and he's going to get everything he possibly can by the censors to make sure it's a "realistic" interpretation. Think about it - a "real" Joker would be pretty damn nightmarish, and I don't know how much closer Ledger's Joker could be to nightmarish even in these images (not to mention the 2+ hour movie nobody's seen!) considering it's technically still a comic book movie with merchandising aimed at kids. I think the people who still hate BATMAN RETURNS for being too gruesome or something are going to be in for more of a shock with TDK than they ever expected. Personally, I love what I'm seeing, and I'm kind of glad that "Begins" didn't start really becoming a big hit until it hit the DVD shelves because in spite of some of the toys we've seen, it feels like Warners is backing off and treating this like a straight action-suspense drama (or psychological thriller) rather than just another one in an ongoing line of comic book "blockbusters." Rumors are (which I think read on AICN) that Warners' execs already saw the flick and the word as to the reaction couldn't be better. This really is going to match or surpass Burton's original, not just in quality of movie but in movie history significance. With what we're seeing, plus Ledger's unfortunate passing, I don't know how it couldn't. Anyway, I've heard praise because Nolan isn't killing all the villains (like Scarecrow) and that there's never been any rumor indicating Joker's death in TDK, but seems like every time the Joker is in a Batman movie, he dies anyway - on screen or, this time, in real life - the actor that portrays him, I mean. Sad. Hopefully the movie is more a remarkable tribute to his Ledger's abilities as an actor than another reminder of his tragic death.

    has me fucking excited...from the posters to the trailer to the stills. I love Batman Begins, and I expect great things from TDK as well. I've never read a Batman comic, so I can't speak to what the "proper" way to present the Joker is.<p>But I can say that I much, much prefer what little I've seen of Ledger's performance to what Jack's was. I wasn't a big fan of Burton's Batman, though I did like Batman Returns better.

    WHY BATMAN BEGINS SUCKS SHIT

    by Underoos Hero

    There is just so much wrong with Batman Ends it's really hard to nail down one point because the whole movie from begining to end was terrible. But, let me list a few for the Tards. Here goes: 1)CHRISTIAN BALE - as Batman = The suck. WHy? His dumbass bat voice. His stupid looking mouth in the cowl. He had as much charisma as a blow up doll in the wind. His Bruce Wayne is absolutely forgetable. 2)RAS A GAY - Liam Neeson brought nothing here. He was as bland as he was as a Jedi. The character was not scary and showed not even a hint of menace or of even being a formidable foe for Batman. 3) SCARE CROW - WTF gives with that FUCKING Terrible scarecrow!?!! Everything was wrong with that bullshit. Everything. 4)BATMOBILE - Holy fucking turd shit, are you kidding me?!! Let's keep moving. Worst concept ever. 5)BATSUIT - Seriously, another goddamned rubber suit? I've seen better at Dragon Con. 6) ORDERING THE BATMASK FROM CHINA - Did anyone miss that? Odering a Batman Mask from China?!! 5,000 of them?!! Fuck me. Gayest thing I've ever heard. 7)BEATS UP NINJAS - Brucy (after 1 week of training, it seemed like) beats up a whole troup of ninjas, falls down a cliff and has the personal plane and Alfred waiting on him. HUH?!!! GODDAMN WHAT THE FUCK?!! 8)LEGEND OF SLEEPY BATMAN - Batman on a horse in what looked like Chicago riding around with glowy eyes? Fuck you. THat sucked. 9)THE WHOLE PLOT - or lack there of. A plot to put trippy acid in the water supply?!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? That is not only the most overused concept in storytelling but about the gayest shit anyone could've come up with in a Batman movie. 10) WORST ENDING - TO cap off this mess and waste of time was about the shittiest ending you could possibly ask for. Nolan + Bale = Got one over on all of you liked it. Worthless. P.S. You need to watch this sorry ass movie when it comes on TV. It looks even worse and still proves the point that it does not hold up.

    realism and comics

    by zom-bot.com

    i've really come to accept this nolanverse and how it can coexist with the dc comics one, and it even gives me a new appreciation for the burton- and yes, schumacher ones. <P>it's like the nolan series is 'what really happened'..and as grounded as you can be in realism without being completely boring- and some will argue it's boring anyway.<P> but what it does is actually glorify the iconic comics and origins to what they really are- myth and legend. tales retold so many times they get exaggerated, glorified, etc. like someone who sees the joker in real life, and assumes alot of things about him, tells a friend who tells a friend and by the end, the joker is a guy with bleached skin, who fell in a vat, which become jumped in a drainage ditch, and on and on. word of mouth and media feul the rumors and mystery. he gives us a pinch of this when the thug asks the scarecow 'can he really fly?'. everyone that encounters the real world characters are going to come away with their own take on them. <P> in this way, the comics are truely compiled mythos, passed down and always changing. and even the movies, good or bad, can now be appreciated as 'interpretations' of the real events and people.

    Batman Begins vs Dark Knight

    by Dominic-Vobiscum

    The only flaws I find with Batman Begins are the "Goyerisms" ("Does it come in black" and other goofiness) and that Nolan didn't shoot the action well at all. Since Goyer isn't involved in the script there will be no goofy one-liners and other assorted hackery, and since DK seems to be more of a thriller (Nolan's bread and butter) than an action film (albeit a thriller with explosions), it hopefully shouldn't suffer from the problems that BB suffered.

    Hey nooneimportant - The Fall of Brian Douglas

    by William Landis

    Keeping away from plot points which may bait the lawyers (although how many people in the legal profession are going to be bothered about someone who posts on an entertainment website under the name of the fictional antagonist in the made-for-TV sequel to the 1979 version of When a Stranger Calls?!), one thing I like which I hear from my sources at AICN UK (!) is that Harvey Dent is two-faced but not in the traditional good/bad way. ***SPOILER WARNING*** There is the acceptable face of law enforcement (being a DA) and the unacceptable face (funding vigilantism). He is basically Batman in a shirt-and-tie but Brian Douglas gives the game away under interrogation in The Joker's warehouse. From a thematic point-of-view, I like that... it just feels really uncliched. Is that good enough? Oh alright then! During a party, Christian Bale will tell Aaron Eckhart to hide in a cupboard. Now that's gotta be worth the price of admission alone... ***END SPOILER WARNING***

    How you can compare these

    by Larry Sellers

    shots to BB at this point is beyond me. I thought BB was all at once well told, perfectly cast (who could expect less from Nolan?), and brought Batman back to the screen in a great style...but it was still a little underwhelming. The third act was a bit contrived with the microwave emitter and the train fight and even though the rest of the movie was faithful Bats still let someone die. Though it could be argued Ra's was too dangerous to live. For an origin movie it was pretty great, better than Spider-Man. It just lacked a compelling villain which The Dark Knight most certainly does have. If any of those spoiler bits that were included with the pics are correct (a couple are questionable), this is going to be one movie a lot of people will regret taking their kids to. Joker = very creepy.

So the arrival of Ventriloquist, Clock King, Maxie Zeus, Firefly and other criminals who'd fit into this Batman world but still have a bit of a twist to them. So that in Part Four who could have an "Arkham Asylum" type scenario with familiar faces rather than new villians.

    What i like about these photos ..

    by wowsah156

    is that Nolan has nailed one of the main points of The Joker: he is a horrifying figure. Seeing that nurse uniform is like seeing death coming to you. You dont see it and live to tell about it. This is going to nail the character once and for all.

    Sure, if you scream the line with a bunch of "!!!" then it will seem stupid. But in the movie it was perfectly delivered, and that's exactly what Bruce Wayne was doing.

    by MattmanReturns

    Yeah, I was invested in the characters. Ducard struck me as a man who let vengeance consume him... a symbol of what Batman COULD have become. I cared how his and Batman's storylines played out, and I was very satisfied with the conclusion. It's true that the villains weren't the strongest thing about the movie... however Begins was the first Batman movie that was about BATMAN, and I appreciated that. Batman is a fascinating character, and I didn't want a movie where the villains were more interesting than the hero. Now that Batman's motivations have been established, I'm ready for some more intriguing villains in Dark Knight. Thus far though, I think the villains of Begins were a perfect set up.

    "He needs strong villains on his level"

    by MattmanReturns

    Totally agree. And that's what the Joker is all about. But again, the first movie was more about setting up Batman, just as Frank Miller's "Year One" was, which had NO strong villains, but is still widely considered a great piece of work (or are you going to tell me Year One sucks now?). As for Nolan being a hack who will be forgotten... you're reaching. He has yet to make a bad movie. Anyway, got anymore insults for me to help prove your point?

    by heyscot

    Batman: Year One in some ways, but then, many of the movies have been derivative of Miller's stuff in Year One and The Dark Knight Returns. The scene with him calling the bats to swarm around the SWAT team was from Year One, but at the end of the day I have to give massive, massive credit to Nolan and the people who made Batman Begins as well as The Dark Knight. Begins was a great movie (with the exception of Katie Holmes, Jesus H.) and The Dark Knight is most likely going to be super-awesome. With The Dark Knight and Indy 4 coming out, it's a GREAT time to be a movie geek!

    Be thankful for Tim Burton's BATMAN boyos...

    by Chishu_Ryu

    His 1989 semi-masterpiece set the stage, showed everyone else how to do it (make a proper super-hero adaptation), brought us Danny Elfman, etc. His 1989 magnum opus was the harbinger of the other really good super-hero films that followed, including the X films, Spider-Man, Blade, Hulk, and others I forget to mention. Without Burton's genius to show the way (mainly how to get away with showing a guy running around in tights in a real world environment without making it a comedy a la Richard Donner's Superman), I'm not sure we'd have the really good super-hero films we have today... Tim Burton started it all...remember that before you hate...give thanks instead...

  • April 4, 2008, 12:09 a.m. CST

    Chisu_Ryu those are good points, and let me clarify:

    by BLEST

    1.) While funny at times, Donner's Superman was totally believable and full of life. It wasn't "a comedy" but rather the first true superhero comic book movie of the modern age. And a dang good one at that.<p>2.) I don't hate Batman '89. I know that a few of my posts on the other TDK talkback pointed out it's flaws, but I still enjoyed it as a kid, and can appreciate it now for what it is: The best of the first 4 Batman films.<p>3.) Batman Begins is the best Batman film to date, period. Critics, fans, and the general public are on 85%(+) agreement on this. It has the best acting, plotting, pacing, character development, script, and cast of any Batman film. I cannot and will not hear it ever referred to as "less than" Batman '89, when it's obviously so much more than. At least not without good reason. And there are a few: Fight scene camera work, and Katies Holme's acting (utter crap!) but none of those things stack up to the piles and piles of crap that was wrong in Batman '89.<p>The Dark Knight, from all pics and previews, looks to surpass Batman Begins as the best Batman film yet, and looks to equal Superman '78, X2, Spiderman 2, and Batman Begins as the best comic book movie to date, if it doesn't outright surpass them.

  • April 4, 2008, 12:32 a.m. CST

    Er, you're wrong Chishu.

    by IAmJack'sUserID

    Donner's Superman was NOT a comedy, although it was an optimistic film. I think people confuse the two. <p></p>Batman 89 was merely a REMINDER that a proper and serious comic book movie could be made. The next big comic book movie was...what? X-Men? And that was over 10 years later! <p></p>B89 was important, but not as important as people make it out to be. I think a lot of its popularity is due to sentimentality. I usually am victim to sentimental feelings, especially movies, but I can see clearly that Batman Begins by FAR kills Batman 89 in almost every way.

  • April 4, 2008, 12:36 a.m. CST

    Haha, I know Batman Returns was before X-Men..

    Burton Batman's was crap

    by stamper

    Batman Begins should have been made, frame for frame, in 1989. Only now does comic books geeks get the movies they used to dream about. Batman 89 made me puke. Fat Nicholoson swinging to Prince, young Nicloson killing the waynes, give me a break. That scene where the fantastic, but here unused Kim Basinger kisses Jokers lap and get some cotton in her mouth is worth the goulag for the filmmaker.

    by Dr.Poots

    It's just that Batman Begins is a far better movie from the perspective of character development. BB is not about Batman - it's about how the central character of Bruce Wayne deals with his feelings of vengeance, loss, pain, anger, etc., while putting the Batman gig together. Very entertaining film. One of those "I can't watch this right now or I'll never get on with the rest of my day" movies.

    Burtons' Batman deserves..

    by CeejayNightwing

    Diddlysquat in credit for anything other than delivering a good music score by Danny Elfman. Other than that it did as much harm as Adam West for me, it did nothing for the character by forever having him less important than the headlining villains who ALWAYS took over the entire picture! Burton made films about Batman villains, NOT BATMAN. If he wanted to take Batman seriously then when he was filming Beetlejuice with Michael Keaton and Alec Baldwin, then he would have given the part to the taller, more suave looking and naturally gritty voiced Alec Baldwin instead of the smaller, geek looking Michael Douglas who was the worst Bruce Wayne out of the lot and the mini-me of all the Batmen! Chris Nolan wanted to tell Batman's story and that's why we have the cinematic genius that is BATMAN BEGINS! Those who just don't like it simply can't assess its creativity in delivering the only movie that actually does the character justice and tells his origins without making him look like a merely a man in a suit. Batman Begins delivers a complex exposition of Batman's character and the intricate details of the paths of his origins that no other film has ever managed to do. It delivers the first stage of his path to becoming the legend that is Batman and sets the scene perfectly for a progressive sequel. All the other Bat films simply delivered colorful villains and a rich guy in a suit with plenty of James-Bond-Gadjects and very little detective prowes. Worse still, every other portrayal of Bruce Wayne before Christian Bale lacked the duality that Batman Begins managed to convey by giving just as much attention to both sides of the character thus delivering a true representation of Batman as a three dimensional character and not a two dimensional costumed prop! Burton's Batman did one thing, it delivered a darker version to the world than Adam West and that's it. The only series I give total respect to for delivering Batman is Paul Dini and Bruce Tims Batman animated series which is truly a legend in its own time and unsurpassed in its depiction of the Dark Knight, his city and his foes. Chris Nolan is on this same track, forever may he proceed and succeed in his venture! R.I.P Heath Ledger

    Boy you Nolan Cocksuckers are Funny as Hell

    by ThePilgrim

    Insomnia is a piece of shit! You can't erase the turning point- Burtons film started it. <P> You asshole teens are fucked with this Hot Topic Generation and thats why you hate the 89 and Burton for that matter. <P> I'm 30- I dress in things that are clean. I listen to shit that not new or overplayed on the classic rock stations. I don't do anything too change how I appear too others- cause honestly I don't give a fuck! <P> Nolan refined it, but Burton ultimately began it. As far as putting it up there on the screen goes! and X-Men is gay! <P> You Comic book nerds are so fucking lame.... You think your numbers are really helping these films. <P> COME ON Now... Do You real think that......<P> Get fucking real!!! Whats helps the films is the casual fans who basically knows the characters name and sorta what they do, but in truth they don't know shit about who that character is or their overall history. <P> I hate how everyone shits in their pants when a film is nothing like the book. Go fuck yourself! Read the book and deal with it. <P> It's called taking creative license. I can understand it when it's an established "On Film Only Icon" and it's remake, but not when it's a re-establishment from one form to another! <P> I'm a casual Fan, and Begins is boring. The films overall structure tries too hard too be deep and meaningful and real and it comes off just as silly as every other batman attempt, but you jaded fella see it with rose colored glasses. <P> Maybe thats why this film works so well for you nerds with your constantly aggravated spotting mangina's. <P> It's you man-opera, and those well known faces those exceedingly wonderful actors sell you into them in they're roles. I like them all too except bale and the Murphy fucker and Cruises crazy bitch. But were these roles there best ever. Hahahahahaha I can think of several better Caine flicks, Freeman ones and Oldman.... <P>I always though Brando was a douche. People are always on the verge of sucking his cock when they speak about him- actors directors fans the press. He had em all fooled! But that method acting could make him a better fake piano player in Island. <P> That 12 inch fig sideshow and hot toys is selling of him looks really gay. Wonder if it comes with some 1/6th scale KY Lube. <P> I don't care how true too the comic's it is.... Cillian Murphy was a fag villain. The stupid microwave gun making insano gas was right up there with 89's end. <P> Give me a fucking break and stop Deep Denying! 80 percent worship it... Really doesn't 80% of America still believe in God... Didn't the majority re vote Bush in for president. Aren't most of you hipsters wearing hoddies and multi logo covered styled clothing. Fuck the majority! <P> Jaded looking for deeper meaning then there actually is pimple popping faggots. The Dialog in begins was pretty close to the dialog in the matrix. Real people don't talk like that. If they do talk like that i the real world they pause for long periods of time before doing so cause that smart dialog has to be thought out before it's executed. The movie Scream Started it and I wish it would fucking die already! The whole lot. That said I have high hope for a entertaining. and only entertaining TDK flick. No deeper Oscar worthy meanings. Just a fun film. with less of the how much it hurts to be a crusader of evil... Batman is a whiny goth bitch. Always has been- I have no clue if Robin fixed that. He seemed real gay happy in the Adam West show. Most of you guys are a bunch of mindless sheep posers. Hell this site didn't talk about Grindhouse Cinema or praise it until QT and RR made they're homage flick. <P>It's only relevant too you douche originaless followers when it's carried in on a platter before you, before then your oblivious! The dialog in the film comes from scream, and it got real old by the time Matrix 2 came out.. Fuck your batman i hope the next ones much shorter on the eloquent dialog and more into the action. Hopefully Nolan can keep the camera still long enough for us to see a fight scene. Bet you the David Fincher would have made a better batman flick, and he wouldnt force his brother to read all the comics to please you lifeless loser comic book fans.

    The debate between BB and 89 says you all want the story over image, and yet the culture you supporting survives on the ink images. If it didn't comic books wouldn't have images in it. And yet you kick Burton in the nuts for his contribution. Damn I find that shit Ironic! He started the darkness on the silver screen. One day you'll stop ignoring that truth!

    BATMAN BEGINS OWES MUCH TO BATMAN '89

    by Chishu_Ryu

    You could say Batman Begins is Batman '89 but with a serious psychological dramatic exploration(explanation) of Bruce Wayne's character and minus Burton's trademark quirkiness/humor. Tim Burton's approach to Batman/Bruce Wayne was to keep him a mystery, an enigma. His personality was always at arm's length, as if we were the reporters w/Vicki Vale trying to find the truth, but never exactly getting it. B89 was a mystery, BB explains the mystery. But more than that, Tim Burton showed everyone how to create a cinematic environment where you could believe there's a guy running around with a cape and bat ears. Before 1989, the world was expecting grey and black spandex tights, Tim Burton gave us black armor. Pre-1989, we were expecting a New York city backdrop, Burton gave us the fantastic industrial Gotham designed by Anton Furstw/homages to Orson Welles and Citizen Kane. Prior to '89, we were thinking Adam West, Mr. Burton gave us darkness and metaphors of duality. This is what made the movie Batman work, and why Batman Begins works. Prior to 1989, nobody was thinking the way Tim Burton was thinking. That's why the dude is a freakin' genius, and we all, including Chris Nolan, need to be bowing down at Tim Burton's throne...

Really, your post was the most empty collection of words sporadically laced with profanites and vulgarities that I have ever wasted my time reading.<p></p> I find it funny how you call us "Nolan cocksuckers" when it is you, Sir, who seems to be riding Burton's cock as your wave your hat and yell YEE HAW. Your homophobic post suggests something that you don't want to face, but don't worry, soon enough you'll be scratching your throat with a skin flute and lubing your stomach with some man juice in no time, unless you've already exited the closet and accepted your true self. <p></p> Oh, and anyone who uses the whole 'box office = quality' aspect automatically fails in life, although I am sure you've long since done that. If we go by your bullshit equation, movies like Transformers, Titanic, Alvin and the Chipmunks, etc. would be considered great movies. It's how movies have held up in the long run, and Burton's overmade, overgothed, under-plotted example of aesthetic excess does NOT hold up well, and Nolan's take KILLS Burton's. Acting, direction, design, story, EVERYTHING. The only thing Burton's Batman may take the advantage with is the Batmobile, but WOW...still doesn't put a dent in the HUGE colussal fact that BB destroys B89.<p></p> Now go masturbate to Edward Scissorhands as you imagine him trimming your pubes so that you can finally find your microphallus, you pathetic ball of regurgitated ass splooge.

    I dont get why theres a divide between Nolan Bat fans and Burton

    by RockLobster800

    I love em both! cant we all just get along? I mean, I grew up with Burtons version and I loved it (still do) but I now realise that its not the definitive version...its just Burtons version.and I know Nolan has borrowed from it (the black suit being the obvious)but he also seems to have more respect for the source material (he can tell you where hes getting things from where Burton has said that he would "never read a comic") However, while I will love em both I'll say this-in retrospect Michael Keaton does a fine job as Batman, but it doesnt seem that he was off training crime fighting foryears-he really just looks like some guy. Bale on the other hand looks and acts like an intense guy who has dedicated his life to it-then again Keatons Batvoice (and even general appearance) are better than Bales slighly over the top routine. Both are flawed but not the extent where I HAAAAAAATE one and "suck the others cock" (which is the juvenile term for the day)...again I grew up loving Jacks Joker and he''s still a riot, and looks closer to the classic JokerBUT Ledgers version may be a revamp, but he looks and acts closer to what the Joker should be-a really genuinely scary, fucked up pyscho, not a whacky old killer. Both versions will be there and Ill like both of em, but Jesus people can we not all sit down and accept that we HAVE both of em, instrad of trying to destroy one or the other? I mean, if we are getting pedantic, the animated series is about the best Bats your gonna get, but lets not go into that....

    Hamm v. Goyer/Nolan?

    by Larry Sellers

    Is more like it. Burton can do wonderful things with the right script. Nolan's best films were penned by himself and/or his brother. For me, both are entirely competent directors and there's plenty of room for both. It's not even worth arguing about really. The movies are very different in tone, so it just comes down to a matter of taste. And the tone is drawn from the screenplay. And screenplays were written by Sam Hamm and David Goyer (the Goyer one-liners stand out more than whatever Nolan's dialog typically reads like)...not the MOST talented writers and arguably less talented as writers than Burton and Nolan are as directors.

    I am perfectly fine allowing the two to co-exist peacefully although as my posts have demonstrated, I lean heavily in Nolan's direction. I was a HUGE Batman 89 fan, but then again I was about 13 or so. Since then, I still liked the movie, and it had sentimental value for me, but once Batman Begins came out, it was very obvious that it came MUCH closer to Batman than Burton could ever dream. Burton used the opportunity to make B89 to show off his gothic obsession, and in doing so lost the essence of Batman.

    I agree with your 20 posts, from all I have seen of the Joker, trailer and pics, he is VERY scary and disturbing. It's been long since there's been a genuine scary character (like this) in movies. I'm looking very much forward to seeing how spooky his performance really is.

    yeah, you cant deny that the Ledges Mr. J just plain doesnt look like a very nice man....in fact, he just look like a flat out iredeemable pyscho. I think Nolan's really pushing what he can get away with in the franchise for exampleI mean in all fairness Two Face has to look really really messed up, but he could have got away with just having the Joker be a chalk white guy with lipstick. But Nolan didnt want to do that and instead made him a disturbing looking, scarred messed up guy who looks kinda diseased....which I much prefer myself! and I love the idea that he infiltrates a hospital in that nurses uniform with all the makeup still on...its an insight to Mr. J's sense of humour that has never been shown on screen....at least not in live action. It actually leads me to think that the homo-erotic subtext you always had betwen him and Batman in things like Arkham Asylum and The Dark Knight Returns, before Harley was introduced will be amped up (cos of the transsexual elements, also seen in AA)...and no, I dont say this cos Heath was in Brokeback Mountain....

    thanks for being cool dudes.<p> Stupid old mouse! (Using better one now.)<p> I'm wondering how close the film will push it to the "R" rating. I know there won't be much sex or cursing, but I can see Joker blowin up, shooting, and cutting lots of people.<p> Tonally as dark as it looks, I wonder if it'll still be PG-13.

    by IAmJack'sUserID

    That's quite a lot of posts. <p></p> I may be speaking prematurely, but I think Nolan's Joker is completely apathetic and anarchistic, which to me is the most dangerous combination a person can have. That is what makes murderers. Nicholson's Joker was a bit too narcissistic for me, so he never seemed really that scary. But this Joker, he's the type of guy that would tell you a bad joke right before slitting your throat without even thinking about it. I predict he will start making top movie villain lists very soon.

    About BB and how good it is or is NOT

    by Boober

    It's an above-average film that can't quite escape the scarring of typical Hollywood-translated comic schlock that has been pushed into our neurons for about a decade. Therefore it seems great in comparison. Nolan tries to treat the subject matter seriously, realistically, and with grit but the fusion of comic elements/influences doesn't quite work in some places. I'm sure execs pressured "Action!" to a certain extent, which resulted in flawed compromise. The casting was great. The League was decent, and understating Ras was smart. The science behind the microwave emitter plot was downright stupid in execution (works on water but not people who are 75% water?. Choreography was going for a "brutal/real fight" angle but should have been tighter as so much is lost. Perhaps Nolan has been given free reign this time and can create a new piece of art rather than something that feels like an imperfect amalgam in places as BB did.

    PS...the bat pod...

    by Boober

    LOOKS LIKE SHIT compared to the car-tank in BB. Please, Hollywood, we know vehicles sell toys, but have some dignity and represent Bat-the-MAN foremost. That means giving him gear that is functional. Go ask someone in the REAL US MILITARY for advice before creating something as stupid-looking and vulnerable to fire as a Donut-wheeled TRIKE.
