Michael Caine Talks DARK KNIGHT Sequel Status & Casting (Or Lack Thereof...)

Merrick here...
MTV sat down with Michael Caine for a discussion which turned towards casting rumors swirling around the next BATMAN movie - even though David Goyer tried valiantly (and somewhat unsuccessfully) to dismiss similar misinformation A WHILE BACK. Caine specifically addressed persistent rumors that Johnny Depp and Philip Seymour Hoffman were being considered for roles in the movie.
There is nobody, there's no script, there's nothing," Caine told MTV News of the status of the next "Batman" movie. "It can't possibly be made before 2011 because 'Inception' is such a big picture." [EDIT] "Johnny Depp is great in anything, but there is no Johnny Depp in this Batman," he smiled. "They tell me in no uncertain terms."
...says Caine to MTV HERE. Here's an embed of the same:
Although I can't locate the exact link/quote at the moment, The Powers That Be on this project (I think it was Goyer specifically) have already expressed interest/belief that the third movie should involve lesser-known villains/antagonists from BATMAN's vast mythology. No word on if this is still the way they're thinking. Anyone out there playing BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM? I'm loving it...

    Lesser-know villains? Yes please.

    by GLENN_THE_TOOL

    I think it would be a refreshing change of pace to feature lesser-known villains than just the usual suspects of The Riddler, The Penguin, Catwoman, and Mr. Freeze. everyone knew they'd have to involve The Joker at some point because he's the ying to Batman's yang. but now that we got the biggest of the Big Bad outta the way, let's give character like Black Mask a time to shine. hell, they've already introduced Mr. Zsasz in Batman Begins. perhaps he can turn up again in the next one?

    Don't you know the JOKER is already in Part 3?

    by Hipperson

    Seriously. Didn't anyone else pick up on how the ending of DARK KNIGHT seemed a bit rushed with The Joker? It's because they shot footage of The Joker and Batman talking at the asylum. This footage, meant to end the film, will now be used as the intro to part 3--and it will give us a nice end to The Joker...which I felt we never got.

    How much is Goyer involved?

    by Bass Ackwards

    I kind of got the impression that his credit on Dark Knight was more of a ripple effect from his involvement in Begins. Didn't think he'd be on board at all the third time around. I've always liked the Talia Al Ghul idea though.

    Comes from a friend in the record industry who was talking to some music reps at Warner Brothers. They told him that the real ending for The Joker was shot--but not put in the film after Heath died. The idea of Batman going to see him is what I came up with after connecting the dots.

    The Riddler

    by OceanWang

    Doesn't translate to screen as well as the Joker. A villain who leaves specific clues that allow you to solve his crimes defeats the purpose. Penguin's no good either. Batman's essentially the villain in this movie after how the last one ended up. The film's real villain should be whoever ends up having to track down the Batman.

    Now that Dawes is out of the way, get some of the comics' actual female characters in there. Use Catwoman in more of an anti-hero sidekick role (plus love interest), and let there be a Talia/Catwoman/Batman triangle. For the other villain...how about Deadshot or Black Mask...?

    Why so serious?

    by darthvedder81

    The Nolan movies are technically brilliant but they are so joyless. I understand trying to stay away from the Schumacher lunacy but is there not a happy medium? I still would like to see a period Batman set in the 30's or 40's. Retro-future technology. Art deco design. Oh and plenty of genuine wit and whimsy without it devolving into camp. I actually thought Aaron Eckhart would make a good period Batman. He's got the chin.

    i call shenanigans on that arkham scene

    by martinlutherkrangjr

    so they would have one scene with the joker in the movie? he would totally overshadow whatever villain they would have in this one.i think thats going to be the big problem with this movie. who is going to be a better villain than the joker was in TDK? Joker is the perfect batman nemesis.

    Isn't the bad guy kinda beside the point?

    by Monkey Butler

    Surely the whole story of Batman3 will be Batman being on the run and what that means to the 'mob' and Gotham at large? I mean, Begins and Knight were both about saving Gotham's soul, so Catwoman and Riddler and Penguin are all kinda irrelevant. Sure, there has to be a bad guy and it wouldn't surprise me to see any of the big names show up (even just as a cameo), but it's always seemed pretty evident to me that Nolan set out to tell his own story first, a Batman story second.

    ARKHAM

    by Deviant Apex

    Asylum was awesome. I loved everything about it even Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprising their roles respectively. As far as Im concerned the third Batman film definitely should be about lesser known villains such as Hush or the The Ventriloquist. Hell, I would even like to see Madhatter or Harley Quinn, even if it twould be difficult to set up her origin without Heath in the picture. Personally, I still think he should adapt The Dark Knight Returns. Anyway, I know the third film in any series is usually a stinker, but I would still love to take another journey through the Nolan-verse.

    Goyer's involvement in TDK

    by centilope

    He had none. He only has a "story credit" because he was the main writer of BB. Nolan was only allowed to tweak the script back then. You can clearly see that TDK is much more Nolan, vastly different from the first one. TDK felt more like a crime epic or something. Goyer is one of Hollywood's go-to guys when it comes to comics and sci-fi/fantasy, that's why he was hired to write BB. Nolan co-wrote the sequel with his brother. After Goyer begged them for several hours, his name was mercifully included in TDK's credits.

    by MattmanBegins

    And I'm not sure what you mean by "more authentic spin on the batman universe." I'm a huge Batman buff, and I can tell you that Nolan was the first to get the spirit of the character right on film. Especially when Burton had Batman murdering people (and I still like Burton's take, btw), and didn't develop Bruce Wayne as the true disguise. Being authentic goes beyond getting the color of the costume right... and by the way the costume constantly changes in the comics.

Pissed that he got punked in the last go around he is hell bent on exposing WAYNE as BATMAN. THINK ABOUT IT...In PART 3 BATMAN is the BAD GUY...and people hate him. So Reese will be trying to prove that WAYNE is BATMAN in order to discredit his former boss. Instead of showing us BATMAN is WAYNE...it's a cool reverse look at potential plot.

    For the last time, Robin is an awful, extremely annoying, completely unnecessary addition the comics, added only for the purpose of selling more toys. When Bane broke Batman's back, he chose Azrael - who was a nutcase - over Robin, because Robin is useless, a pansy, a fruitcake, nothing else.

    Nolan's Batman

    by MattmanBegins

    I think Batman, more than any other comic book character, works just fine in a hyper realistic environment, since he has no superpowers. But he also works as fantasy. That's the great thing about the character. I can appreciate both versions.

    Best Batman 3 idea.......

    by We_Are_Trapper_Keeper

    Actually came from Harry a while back, I believe. Face it, there's no way to directly follow up TDK. I don't think anything can live up to that. I think they should shoot The Dark Knight Returns as the third part. Make Bale look older, recast an older looking Joker, maybe leave out Superman, but I think that would be the best way to follow up TDK

    Deadshot and the Ventriloquist

    by Immortal_Fish

    Batman needs a vehicle for redemption given how the last flick ended. The best way to do this would be to introduce a replacement for Bats that has ulterior motives for taking over Gotham. This is Deadshot's origin and he also happens to be a fan favorite. The red herring villain could be the Ventriloquist, who Deadshot appears to be investigating, yet is really just a useful idiot. Both characters fit into Nolan's "as close to reality as possible" universe.<P>This could/may be perceived as a retread of the first flick in some ways, but enough differences could be embellished into the script that would make it stand alone. And it would be wholly FAITHFUL to the SOURCE MATERIAL.

    The only way to go with a new Batmovie?

    by TommyGavinsEgo

    DON'T MAKE IT. <p> <p> Seriously. Back away. Leave it as it is. Wait 10, 15 years, reboot. <p> <p> You CANNOT top The Dark Knight. <p> You CANNOT top The Joker as a villain, or Ledger in the part. <p> You CANNOT top it as an almost-perfect synthesis of comic book movie / summer blockbuster / "proper" film. <p> You CANNOT repeat the lightning-in-a-bottle, however tragic and unfortunate, of having a superb movie in its own right made all the more 'special' by the passing of the actor who made it. ('Cos let's face it, Bale is unfortunately the weakest link in his own movie there.) <p> <p> Anything that follows The Dark Knight - and only Nolan could even DARE attempt it - is doomed to fail in comparison. <p> <p> I honestly believe Nolan has enough integrity to know this, and if they can't nail something utterly special, he won't commit. <p> <p> But then, of course, we'll see a follow-up directed by someone else, who will stay ALMOST true to the established world, but feel the need to put their own little spin on it. <p> <p> Bale? He'd be back. Write him a big enough cheque and he'd be there. Don't believe the bluster - the guy signed up for Terminator Salvation. Solely because of the brilliant, character driven script. Yeah, whatever. <p> <p> By the way... did anyone figure out exactly which scene in that instantly-forgettable cash-in was the "intense, character-driven, emotional" interlude which caused Princess Bale to throw his toys out of the pram? 'Cos I sure as shit couldn't spot it. <p> <p> I didn't realise it was so emotionally draining and important to "connect" with your co-star when punching a great big time-travelling metal skeleton for the twelfth time.

    And I can guarantee to you there's no missing scene with Ledger, nor would Chris ever allow the specter of Ledger overwhelm the third movie. Instead, as Chris was telling me last weekend in the Hampton's, the big suprise for part 3 will most likely be the appearance of Robin, played by--wait for it--Miley Cirus. Chrissy plans to wait until 2012 to start filming so that she'll be 18 by then and there won't be any fuss when he brings back the "nippled" armor suits. He's also kicking around the idea of making her a lesbian and/or involving her in a love triangle with Bruce and Lady GaGa as poison Ivy. Of course, Jesus Christo, as I call him in private, is also toying with the idea of pulling a "Pulp Fiction" and reviving Liza Minnelli's career by casting her as Catwoman. As Chryssanthemum was saying, he's thinking of having her appear completely nude, but for "Dali mustache-like" whiskers that potrude from her vag.

    I wish AICN would stop posting these non stories..it is so not cool and a huge waste of my time. The only real reason Merrick posted this story was to plant a big 'ol link to the Arkham Asylum game on Amazon to collect "a small percentage to go towards the continuation of this column".

    No Depp In Batman

    by Hipperson

    Come on. Seriously. Only in a BURTON BAT-FILM would I want to see Depp. In the Nolan world, and JETT--tell me if I am wrong, but in the Nolan BAT world it is more about the hero than the bad guy...and they lost sight of that in TDK...but that was to be expected. So, in part 3--it's all Batty with the Baddie in the backseat.

    So batsters walking down the street

    by water_shit_anderson

    and michael caine comes up to him acting all hip and english and batmanster says: "are you drunk man?" and the cainster says no and bats is like "well then get out of my face" and bats got in his his rocket pod mobile express and jets down the street at warp ten via dilithium crystal. And thats just how it is bats is thinking in his brain and all the sudden just then he gets the urge to see how janester is doing so he gets on the bat cell and informs janester its time they get serious like seriously in bed together to he can show her what a bat can do. But jane is playing coy and is like "bats i've got a boy friend la la la" and bats only hears talking like the adults in peanuts like "blah blah blah" and hes like " ok i'll see you tonight at ten" and janes saying "no! i've got a boyfriend" but alas bats has his mind made up and thats the end of it period story over etc. <p> So battlemonoman himself our batster shows up at janesters appartment at like 10:45 and is there with bells on. And Janes boyfriend answers the door and who is it god damn it but that no good docster doc spinster!!@!$ crimester and criminal royale and regal bank robber and band man himself. WTF!4 Bats is filled with an obtuse amount of jealously and rage and battles down the door and informes dick spinster that it is time to rumble for the sake of his love and livelyhood the lovely fuckable janester. And its on and they are battleing in the street and causing a rukus slamming holes into the pavement and the asphault and vaulting over one another in high arcs obove the city making matrix revolutions smith/neo fight look like kignergarten. "you will die!" batmanster informs spinster whilest punching him in the face and by the boucning and landing on the pavement spinster does it is hard to argue against batsters interpretations of the situation. And bats gets out the bat gun with grappling hook and blasts it in spinsters direction and drags him toward his obvious doom at the feet of batsters battle boots. And spinster is crying and saying "no battleman I didnt know that whore was a bitch of yours please let me live to rob banks and another day etc." and in a sudden lighting bat flash of mercy bats says ok sure just this once get the fuck out ov here" and thats the end of the battle royale. <p> Bats staggers back to janesters flat to suprise her with some suprise sex and reflects on the fact that his drunkness is making it hard to be coherent and spell correctly...oh well. <p> Tje ehnd.

    by water_shit_anderson

    and he was a librarian in a small town and was generally liked by most of the populance and etc. So he went to his basement to freebase a glass of culligan water through his nostrils and all of the sudden he went to wathc the evening news. And then his couch was tan. And then he became more successful and decided to maile his friends lettors in the email and with regular post maile. And hte letters were very dry because he remembered to clasp the box shut in case of sopping wetting rains. A fanstastic idea. A man of our times a good freind and my best friend. <p> I love you hipster.

    Why does the new Batman movie have to top TDK?

    by Continentalop

    Nolan himself said he hates the idea sequels raising the stakes and trying to top the last movie. Even TDK wasn't really a raising of the stakes - in BB the whole city was at risk - millions of lives versus the thousands on the ferry. <P> He has also stated he is more worried about what the next theme should be, not what new stunts we can do to top the last movie. So people should stop worry about if they will top TDK, it is unimportant. All that matters is that he makes a Batman movie with a story we are interested in. <P> And anyone who thinks or says FIrefly is in the next one is breathing way to man paint fumes.

    dont misunderstand me.i freakin love the movie,i watched it twice in the cinema.but when i rewatched it in bluray,i started noticing its flaws,which were quite a lot,with the most important one the length of the movie: i believe nolan could say everything he wanted in a shorter duration of the movie,and not just drag too much and harm the pace of the story. <p>anyway i hope they ll have Catwoman,The Riddle and maybe Clay Face,just to bring some tragic and a lot of cool cgi action with his character (they can also do this with Mr Freeze but the Arnie fiasko is still fresh)

    Supershadow

    by ratmonkey8

    JettL93 is clearly a reference to George Lucas' son, Jett Lucas. This guy sounds a lot like Supershadow of fake Starwars news fame. He claims to know George Lucas and has all kind of "spoilers" at his site, all of which he made up. I guess now that Starwars has been run into the ground and we've all seen the horror that was the new trilogy, Supershadow, aka Mickey Suttle, needs a new popular franchise to exploit. This is his way of making himself feel needed and important-stringing people along with fake info. He should just be ignored unless you get laughs out of his posts in an entertainment sort of way, which is what I started to think Supershadow.com was-entertainment that makes fun of geeks that are obsessed with Starwars. Im surprised he hasnt been doing that with LOST.Anyway, as I said: JettL93 is Supershadow aka Mickey Suttle. Gotta be.

    Don't pressure Nolan....

    by Wongertron

    I'm sure he won't feel like it with the success of the last film. I'd hate to see what had happened w/ Raimi and Venom. Those rumors that have been swirling around I hope don't come into fruition. Also, I think that the success of the casting has come from non-American actors - w/ exception of Freeman and Eckhart. That being said, I think Nolan could reinvent the Riddler like he did w/ Ras al Ghul. If they wanted to go really dark, they could take AA: A Serious House on Serious Earth's version of Mad Hatter.

    Supershadow is best buddies with GL

    by TurdontheRun

    My favorite parts of that classic site were where Supershadow regularly had dinner with Lucas and conducted detailed interviews with him, wherein over expensive caviar and lobster bisquet 'The Flanneled One' divulged intimate details of his divorce with Marcia to his best friend, and poured his heart out in anguish at her running off with the plumber. He then readily took Mickey's suggestions and even completed screenplays to be used for Star Wars Ep. 7 - 9 (featuring Grando Calrissian and a de-frosted Sith Lord called Darth Ultimus). True story that.<p>Seriously, I could never work out if the guy was legitimately bananas, or if the site was an elaborate practical joke at the fanboys' expense. Even if it was the latter, the amount of time and effort he put into it (along with his 'girlfriend's' site - she apparently sold chunks of rock from Venus!), still points towards him being a sad shut-in. Hilarious, though.<p>In other 'cool news', Batman 3 will feature Batman, played by Christian Bale. The character will wear a suit of black rubber, and talk like he just swallowed a strip of sandpaper and smoked 3 tons of tobacco through a steam funnel. I'm no Mickey Suttle, but don't say I never gave you anything!

    that the next batman movie,regardless its quality,it is in no fucking way going to reach the profits of TDK. there isnt everyday that your talented,celebrity actor who plays one of the most recognizable villains,dies before the premiere of the film. <p>i believe,that since nolan cant use the joker again,and given batmans situation at the end of tdk (hunted and heart broken),nolan is going to take inspiration from Spiderman successful formula: a superhero who has doubts for his self and his contribution to the world,and he also has trouble to relate romantically with someone else,since the tragic events of TDK.

    by enderandrew

    Ledger was great as the Joker, but now we need contrast. Fans keep asking for Depp or Tenant as the Riddler, which is frankly stupid. The Nolan-verse is very grounded in reality.<p>What I want is William H. Macy as a brilliant, psychotic Riddler akin to the Zodiac killer, as the only man smart enough to see through Batman's lies. Eventually the Riddler leaves enough clues to reveal the truth that Gordon lied in a murder investigation to frame Batman. Gordan had become the White Knight the city needed, but their plan backfired. Now no one trusts the deceased Dent, Gordon or anyone in the GPD. True fear and paranoia takes over the city. Watch Edmond (a brilliant flick no one has seen) and you'll see what Macy is capable of as an actor.

    Holiday Killer/Riddler/Harley Quinn

    by dailysportspages

    A twist on the Holiday Killer angle from The Long Halloween book that Nolan seems to like. <br><br> Set the movie 20 years in the future. <br> Have Harley Quinn be the serial killer. <br> She is called "Riddler" by the press because of the riddle type notes she leaves. <br> They assume she is a man of course. <br> She herself though does not write the riddles... she is just the person carrying out the mantle of "Riddler".<br> The actual Riddler is someone entirely different.<br> She is finally caught after many years of killing. <br> She just happens to be an ex lover of Bruce Wayne. (of course)<br> Batman has been trying to break this case for most his career. <br> Every time he gets close, he finds out he's on the wrong track. And thats part of Riddlers game.<br> People like Mr Reese and Mr Nygma turned out to be a patsies. (wink/nod to fans)<br> In those 20 years Batman has had to deal with a lot of foes, (cue montage of classic rogues gallery cameos, including the death of what looks like a sidekick/Robin).<br> <br> As previously state Harley Quinn is in fact only one half of the Riddler. She only commits the murders.<br> She gets her orders and her notes from the real Riddler. And who is the real Riddler?<br><br> An Arkham Asylum lifer... a 60 year old man that was once called Joker by the Gotham media.<br><br> Throw in a Bane side story where he breaks everyone out of Arkham... finally releasing Joker after all this time. <br> Bane has been controlled chemically by the still alive Ra's al Ghul who has chosen him as his heir by force.<br> Ra's goal is for Bane to break Batman's will so he finally accepts and becomes Ra's one and true heir.<br> Unfortunately he also breaks Batmans back, severely crippling him.<br><br> Bane has a crisis of conscience and breaks free from Ra's control.<br> Bane then takes up Batmans mantle and helps Batman destroy Ra's using Batmans technological expertise.<br> From the Batcave, Batman is able to help Bane via the use of his Brother Eye technology.<br> With that technology Batman is able to give Bane a map to all of Ra's Lazarus Pits and have Bane then go and fulfill his wish to destroy all chance of Ra's every coming back to control his life again.<br><br> While Bane is gone Joker is able to find the Batcave and comes in to kill the rehabbing Batman.<br> But he is not successful of course.<br> Batman injects himself with some of the chemical used to strengthen Bane in order to give himself a temporary physical boost back to semi health.<br> Batman kills Joker, but not before we get a drag out bloody fight between two 60 year olds.<br>

    by Levon Swift

    There is only one way I can think of to properly up the ante from TDK short of bringing Two Face back to life. SUPERMAN. Batman is on the wrong side of the law, he's supposedly killed six people, and the cops can't touch him. SUPERMAN is new in Metropolis, and upon hearing what's going on in Gotham, he comes to take The Batman down. Keep the same tone, make Superman the only fantastic element, which will make him seem even more Godly. DC already said they have no plans for Superman at the moment. Imagine how huge this movie could be.

    i was madly jamming my hands into the keyboard attempting to convey my opinions on batmanster and talk to my homies and I heard a "creak" on the stairs to my side. I look over and standing there with a sheepish expression is Old Caine himself. Old Nigel Powers in the flesh. I take a sip on my brew and just as he's opening his mouth to tell me some inane thing I already know i scream at him to stop. "i get it... beer makes you drunk.... its in bottles, i'm drinking it right now, gravity makes things fall, stairs make you go higher, gary oldman is a liar, I GET IT!! So save it old man!". <p> For a second he doesnt know what to say...until finally he musters the ambition and quietly says: "i'm senile." Then he sadly walks down the stairs. <p> "obviously".

    He simply let Rhas die, rather than risk helping him (he had saved Rhas' life already, and look where it led him). He was not directly responsible for the precarious position Rhas had found himself in. Now, in the case of saving the Joker (before anyone cries hypocrisy), Batman had literally thrown him off the building, and thus felt compelled to save him. He won't directly murder anyone. If the Joker had leapt off the building himself, that's a different story. His code remains intact.

    Would be pretty good. Also Rupert Thorne ought to be in here somewhere. Of course I want Catwoman and Joker cameo (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). I'll only take lesser known villains in small roles for now. I'm not interested in Black Mask or Ventriloquist. You don't follow up the Joker with Z-grade villains like that.

    You think Superman has lame villains? (Well, he does, good ones too, but even those easily become lame if done wrong in a movie, which they always are, BTW.) Batman has some reeeeal stinkers. The Squid? Poison Ivy (Plant powers are so gay. Also, two words, Uma Thurman)? Calendar Man? Gypsy Moth? KGBeast? All sucktastic. Riddler, however, has possiblities of being successfully Nolan-ized. Go with Riddler and make him the exact opposite of that Jim Carrey bastardization we all suffered through back in 1995.

    by water_shit_anderson

    please pay extra close attention: <p> <p> So there was this leaf and it was sitting in a lawn and all the sudden there was this wind and this leaf blew into this fence and this fence was slightly silver but mostly tan. And this leaf blew into this fence and then the fence fell over and the leaf blew past into the grass. And this grass was high let me tell you and this leaf went into the grass and this grass was brown from cloudy skies and this grass was blown by the wind and this wind was from the sky and the sky was grey and there was a faint light and this light was grey and dim and it shown on the leaf and the grass and through the wind which could not be seen because of its invisibility. And this invisibility was like any other that exists except for the imperceptable particles it contained and these particles were small...too small for eyes to see. And these eyes were in a head. And this head was on some shoulders. <p>

  • Sept. 22, 2009, 7:40 p.m. CST

    by Meadowe

    And it's gonna be someone from Inception. After seeing JGL's Cobra Commander I think he'd be decent (albeit short.) DiCaprio wants to finally FIRMLY establish himself as an actor's actor, despite all the oscar bait he's been throwing out he knows he has yet to fully wash Titaniq off, and after seeing everyone go gaga after Heath Ledger you can bet he's at least mentioned the possibility to Christopher Nolan. As long as we have something as good as The Dark Knight I don't care who the villains are and who they're played by. If they f this up, im gonna say Make Mine Mickey!

    Government program- SuperVillains agree to serve on team in exchange for early release. Nanobots keep them for deserting. Basically Dirty Dozen with super powers. But the original 65 issue run from '87-'92 (or so) was written by John Ostrander, who was one of the first to write villains as actual people. <P>His characterizations of Deadshot and Captain Boomerang are still the norms for the characters (well, until Boomerang died).

    Real Batman 3 Spoilers

    by The Greatest

    Several dumbasses up top claim to be in on the production. There is no production,only preliminary talks,and I happen to be privy to them. Joker will be in the next film but his role will be much smaller. There are intensive talks right now about recasting the role, as you can imagine. The central theme of the film will be redemption......for both Gordon and Batman. Wayne's arc will be his coming to grips with his role as Gotham's savior. Gordon will come to grips with being the only one who knows the truth about Batman's sacrifice. No villain has been decided upon as yet though Catwoman is being discussed as a violent vigilante who stepsupin Batman's absence. Wayne will have to hunt her downRemember you read it here first.

    by WilliamZabkaRox

    Two-Face should return and I have my doubts about him being killed at the end. Aaron Eckhart did such a great job as Dent and Two Face that he should get a full movie to play the Two-Face role. You can't just have Two-Face on screen for like 15 minutes and that's it. He needs to get his revenge. Joker is gone, locked away. Harvey Dent is dead however Gotham knows nothing about Two-Face.

    Conti - Bruce Wayne as the Riddler

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    Could work. <p> In Nolanverse we certainly don't need a costumed character. <p> Someone had suggested before that it be the alternate personality of a private detective who has been hired (by a new mob boss/city mayor - Penguin) to find and capture Batman. He would of course be completely unaware of this alter. Also ties into the theme of identity which is explored with say Bruce Wayne/Batman and Two Face, someone who is completely unaware of their darker side. <p> Obviously not nearly as ground breaking as having it be Bruce Wayne, which would be a Sixth Sense-esque twist. But would be interesting that its a detective rather than simply a jilted employee or something similar.

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    Have said before that he should be a good looking guy, who is wealthy and socially prominent like Bruce, but is involved in the underworld as well.

    I actually mentioned the Bruce Wayne thing as a lark (which I am sure you realize and are just tugging my chain), but personally, while I want to villains to be re-imagined, I don't want them to stray to far from their original versions. <P> Joker was portrayed as a psychotic mass-murdering, anarchistic clown, much like he was in Batman #1 (the comic, not the movie). He wasn't depicted as a super-scientist or a master of martial arts. That is how I feel about characters like Penguin, Riddler and Catwoman. <P> The idea of a good-looking Penguin just doesn't appeal to me (but a freaky, Danny Devito style also doesn't appeal to me). And a PI Riddler doesn't really seem like the Riddler to me either. If he you are going to make such drastic change to the characters, why not just use different characters? <P> Personally, I think their is something fundamentally and elemental about those early characters, and would prefer Penguin and Riddler to Black Mask, Bane, Mr. Zsasz or any of the other modern villains.

    I never got the anti-Penguin people. Yeah, he is depicted in a lame way in the comics now, but that says more about the writers and readers nowadays than it does about the character. He is the classic criminal mastermind/"gentleman" thief (and I use that term loosely). He is the anti-Joker, where the Joker represents the chaotic, anarchistic side of crime, he represents the organized, professional criminal. <P>

    Conti - no problem, you are a gentlemen (which is rare)

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    Will be interesting to see if they come into the Nolanverse. <p> I think most characters are reimagined over time, Nolan is very different to Burton in style and vision, one made fantasy movies and one has made crime movies, and for me I still prefer the crime version of Batman. <p> Think Nolan and Burton are at opposite ends of the spectrum, and looking back at Batman comics over time, its interesting to see where the different portrayls lie on that spectrum and which you most prefer. <p> Whilst they can be fun with their gadgets and costumes, and interesting stories, what makes them compelling and allows us the audience to really connect is their human qualities. For me with comic book movies the risk is too much focus on style rather than substance. <p> The human qualities, weaknesses etc is why I still find Superman one of the hardest comic book/movie characters to really care about. He just seems too perfect for me. <p> Iron Man worked because it was about Tony Stark, and of course this is where the script focused and RDJ brilliantly potrayed him. <p> Will be interesting to see Green Lantern, they really need to focus it on Hal, and think about how the ring will be used to avoid it coming across as silly.

    But it is funny that you bring up Superman, because I am probably in the minority here who wants to see Superman relaunched. I love the idea of making a more human Superman - not a wimpier, angst ridden Superman, but one that feels more like a real person who was born with Godlike powers. I want the William Defoe/Last Temptation of Christ Superman, not the King of Kings/Passion of the Christ Superman. <P> And I am also in the minority of wanting Lex Luthor on the screen again. He is the most easily adaptable villain depending on what story he is in or what audience you are presenting him to - just make him unbelievably evil and no Real Estate scam and I would be in Nirvana.

    Conti - reSupes

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    I agree I want Superman to be on the edge in respect of grappling with trying to help v control. In his view he knows that he could get so much more done and changed with his amazing powers, but effectively he would have to become a dictator. How does he deal with those thoughts. <p> Luthor is obviously very jealous of Supes and his powers, he wants to become a "god", and doesn't have those same reservations about losing his humanness, becoming a dictator etc. <p> We as an audience will obviously never be able to connect with Supes's godlike powers but morale quandries, self determination, independence, always feeling out of place, can't truly connect with anyone (ignoring characters like Supergirl), this is stuff we can connect with, and how he as a "god" deals with this is interesting. <p> Of course we also need to be entertained so need to balance it out with some great action.

    Storylines

    They have already touched on those themes in TDK. <P> The idea of Batman being compelled to kill but resisting (Joe Chill in Year 2, Joker in TDK) and the idea of someone who believes Batman doesn't go far enough (The Reaper in Year 2 & Two-Face in TDK) have already been covered. Doing Year 2 would add nothing new to the Batman movies - Nolan has already touched those themes to some degree. <P> I have not read Batman: the Cult though, so maybe there is something there.

    No big secret that the 3rd Batman is about Redemption

    by toadkillerdog

    Nolan likes his Themes - pounded into your skull with no subtlety - and plot inconsistencies be damned. i.e. Batman dark knight, Harvey white knight, but white knight is actually dark and dark knight is actually white. And bad plot and writing nonsense be damned! This is theme I came up with and I will stick to it regardless of how nonsensical it is, because after all, if it does not make sense I can always fall back on ' it is only a movie about a costume wearing vigilante'. <p> If Nolan cared half as much about the writing as he did the theme, dark Knight would have been a classic. But that aint gonna happen n the third movie, because just like Mikey Bay's movies, why change what makes you rich? <p> And honestly, can you fault the guy?

    by toadkillerdog

    I think Keaton was the best Bruce Wayne because he showed the truly precarious balancing act Wayne had to maintain on his sanity as well as his alter-ego. But that was only in the first Batman, it was not explored any further. Keaton was just too small to portray the Batman with any realism, regardless the padding. Reminded me of the time Tony Stark 'cured' the Hulk, only to have puny Bruce Banner turn green and spout the famous 'Hulk Smash', and almost break his foot when he smashed it into the ground thinking he was the Hulk. Just too puny and powerless, but still had the mindset.<p> Bale brings nothing but physical presence to the character. He adds zip as either Wayne or Batman, but he looks better in the suit.

  • Sept. 23, 2009, 8:39 a.m. CST

    My deal with KEATON

    by Hipperson

    Is that he just felt REAL. I felt like he WAS Batman and he WAS Bruce Wayne. One of the best examples is when he pretty much loses it at the end of BAT '89 and says, "I'm gonna kill you" to The Joker. He's lost it. He doesn't give a shit and it's played perfectly by Keaton. Even the funny delivery of, "Excuse me...you ever dance with the devil in the pale moon light?" and then punches him right into the bell. Great stuff. Didn't get ANYTHING like that from Bale-Man in TDK. "WHERE ARE THEY!?" WHEERREE ARRRE THEEYYY?!"

    Keaton nailed the psychoses of Wayne/Batman

    by toadkillerdog

    But as good as that was (and hands down he was the best), he just could not overcome the lack of physical presence. And I also have issues with Burtons' directorial style. I prefer what Nolan has done as far as placing bat,an in a far more 'realistic' setting. Of course that comes with pitfalls, because the closer you get to depicting him in a real world, as opposed to the comic book/fantasy, the more problems you face when you get too outlandish, and the more backlash you will get when you paint yourself into a corner, and your only recourse is to simply say 'hey it's a movie based on a comic book'

    Too real

    by Hipperson

    The one thing that bugs me about BAT FILMS is when they try and get TOO REAL. Remember how LAME it looked in the flashbacks of BATMAN FOREVER when we see BATS jumping in the courtroom to try and save Dent from getting burned by acid? LAME. That's why I liked how Burton's Bat was always seen at night. In TDK it seemed a bit odd for Batman to be seen in so much light at the police station. And how awkward must it have been before that scene? I mean, if you want to get REAL about it..."Hey, um, Batman...we're just going to have you go in this room...and um...hide...we'll bring the Joker in in about 5 minutes."

    Bale bashing

    JONES

    by Hipperson

    was WAY too over the top in an already too over the top film. When Batman ISN'T on screen and it's Kilmer Wayne I think BATMAN FOREVER has potential...and I think it would have been great if Keaton had stayed on...at least it would have felt more like a BATMAN film in the 90's...instead of a weird excuse to use blacklights and try to cram Robin in. That sequence where Alfred sees MASTER DICK doing laundry and THAT'S how he decides to make him a suit??? Please. The BEST casting from the New BAT FILMS has to be CAINE as Alfred. Brilliant. Freeman is also very strong. But I will still BALE BASH because he goes TOO FAR into Cookie Monster as BATMAN. Keaton was creepy the way he whispered his lines...his scenes with The Penguin in RETURNS are great.

  • Sept. 23, 2009, 9:11 a.m. CST

    NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN...think about it

    by Hipperson

    KEATON and BURTON should do a RVIAL BATMAN FILM! Just Like Connery did to the BOND boys in the early 80's. How wild would it be to have THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS??? With KEATON back in the BURTON GOTHAM? And don't say BURTON wouldn't do it...of course he would! He did PLANET OF THE APES & CHARLIE & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY for fucks sake! Can you imagine how cool it would be to see an aging BATMAN in a crumbling GOTHAM...coming back to dust off the cowl? AND TO HEAR THE BEST COMIC BOOK SCORE EVER from Danny Elfman!? I love going on youtube and seeing vids that people have done using the Elfman music on the Nolan films.

    Talking Bat

    by Hipperson

    The way Keaton talked was creepy. Kilmer was too cocky...Clooney? He was just Clooney. That film should never be referenced...ever. Keaton spoke in a creepy whisper and had anger behind what he said. Bale does it with just pure anger...or when he's relaxed he sounds like a heavy smoker at age 70.

  • Sept. 23, 2009, 9:44 a.m. CST

    Michael Keaton as THE MAD HATTER!!!

    by EvilDoeR

    HELL FUCK YES! He was the best BATMAN until Bale took over why not bring him back now that he's to old for the role of BATMAN as a bad guy! I love it! Talk about Brilliant. I bet that would put asses in seats for sure! That would make more money then The Dark Knight at the boxoffice. If Johnny Depp got cast as The Mad Hatter it would be funny since he's playing almost the same role in Alice in Wonderland with Tim Burton.

    Think about the BAT EYES. Batman always has heavy makeup on his eyes. BATMAN rocks the guy-liner...but will they ever solve the problem of HOW the make up gets there or how he takes it off? Think about the end of BATMAN RETURNS and how LAME it looked right before Keaton took off the cowl.

    Steal the world's resources for centuries, using unpaid native slaves or negligibly-paid laborers to do it. Spread the wealth out among fat white people and call it an economy. Create taxes and debt and figure out a way to profit from the exchange. Prop it all up with World Bank and IMF. Tsk, tsk at the impoverished and convince them they're just too lazy and dull to eat any pie. Condemn an arbitrary chunk of the world's citizenry to poverty - not coincidentally, the chunk living on the land you've long-since exploited. Buy your daughter a Ferrari on her sixteenth birthday and watch her drive it into a tree. Teach your douchebag son the secret handshake on his eighteenth and congratulate him for the size of his ball-sac. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Yeah, Spacey was more menacing, but he still was channelling Hackman's character. <P> And Hackman wasn't meant to be completely menacing - he was a comic book master criminal brought to life in a movie, the type of guy who would try to pull off a ridiculous crime like a real estate scam using Earthquakes and a nuke or two. <P> As much as many of us here complain about Nolan, he did come up with a new, interesting angle for Heath's Joker - as a metaphor for our fear for terrorist. Which is something Singer should have done since Lex is the obvious man to represent our fear of rogue states (or in this case rogue scientist) and weapons of mass destruction in the wrong hands. <P> One of the big disappointments in the movie for me is when Spacey's Lex steals those crystals from the Fortress of solitude - I thought he was going to build a massive alien WMD and Super-Nuclear blackmail Metropolis or something. But nope, does a real estate scam. <P> BTW - That would have been a perfect way to introduce the 80s crystal brain Brainiac into the movies, have Lex use to crystals to make a computer who gains sentience. Just me making a suggestion...

    HACKMAN would have made a great JOHN DOE

    by Hipperson

    Think about that. Shit, HACKMAN was supposed to be Lector in Silence of The Lambs...imagine him as John Doe--with ALL the dialogue being the same...he would have OWNED that role. I think Hackman would be amazing in almost anything. Fucking Welcome to mooseport can kiss my mosse sized balls. HEIST--brilliant.

    Hack-Lector

    Yep. He was on as a producer at one point and set to star as Lector...then it fell apart and he bailed. He later said he didn't like how dark the character got.

    Valerie Perrine

    by toadkillerdog

    Under appreciated sex kitten from early seventies. She did a playboy spread, and was never shy about movie or even TV(PBS back when the had balls) nudity. <p> Loved her Miss Tesmacher - always wondered if Hack-Lex forgave her for ruining his real estate scheme, or if he gave her to Otisberg?

  • Sept. 23, 2009, 2:21 p.m. CST

    For the movie, I believe.

    by Cobra--Kai

    Ted, as a sentient 'species' we're incredibly lucky to have a moon. Without that little ball in the sky, telling us that other 'worlds' exist we might well still be believeing that stars are simply pinholes in the curtain of night.<p> It's a fair comment that our understanding of space science would be VASTLY inferior if we didnt have that 'starting' point of reference.

    ted, I remember having a picture book as a kid called 'SFI NOW' or something similar. It had lots of photographs from sci-fi movies including one from SLAUGHTERHOUSE 5 with a topless Valerie Perrine. It was quite a sight. You don't forget that shit when you're 8.

    would make a good Mr. Freeze? IF they went for a REAL type of Freeze...an old man hell bent on freezing the city...just a long shot. I think, no matter what, the 3rd film will be a huge let down.
