I'm pretty confident this will be as good as Batman Begins, which is to say quite awesome.
Arrakis teaches the attitude of the knife - chopping off what's incomplete and saying "Now it's complete because it's ended here."

Nice, I too think this has potential to become something good, I love the whole "forget about Batman 5 lets just redo it" approach. Cause the Batman series started good but ended worse with Batman 4 only having a 3.5 rating on IMDB.com.

Yeah, while I adore most of Tim Burton's work, I don't think he had much bisiness getting onvolved with Batman.  Aside from Michael Keaton's first appearance as Batman/Bruce Wayne, everything about those movies sucked.

I was impressed with Mr. Bale's performance in the new Batman film, and I look forward to seeing this forthcoming episode.  It may well surpass Batman Begins...

Yeah, this movie will be fantastic. Bigger and badder than the original. Which had ninjas! How can it can go wrong. :lol:

I'm more interested, though, in who will be remembered to portray the better Joker - Nicholson or Ledger.

Cool! A big thumbs up for me for the director, Cristopher Nolan!

Batman begins was not perfect, but was pretty good :)

Nice. This is exactly what I want to see.

Comic books and superheroes stories done with a serious nature, instead of the usual tongue in cheek "making fun of ourselves" movies.

I really, really wish the guys doing this movie had done The Punisher.

I agree, they need to stop reinventing what comic book heroes that were dark to begin with.

Tounge in cheek can be good at times though. Nothing beats the smaller "internal" jokes that occationally turn up in the better comic hero movies.

Along things like the exchange between Wolverine and Cyclops in the first Xmen movie regarding the outfits.

Quote

Wolverine: "You acctually go outside in these things?"
Cyclops: "What would you prefer? Yellow spandex?"

Now...knowing the comics Woverines outfit originally was indeed yellow spandex!

As for Punisher.....there's no other Punisher than Dolph Lundgren!  :yes:

Has-been, now retired for good.....maybe :devil:

Ah, "The Dark Knight"...it is a fantastic read as a comic-book..yes a book. I read it when I was 19. Very mature & dark in nature. This could be good! :thumbsup:

Dolph looked more tortured and had "The Thousand Yard Stare"---a Marine Corp-thing :shifty: --- too bad, bad production, and Marvel wasn't "completely" onboard with it. <_<

Next one I believe has "Chip" in it.

I have to respectfully disagree about Dolph Lundgren making a good punisher.

Frank Castle was no blondhaired swedish hearthrob.

I remember during the making of the last version there was some good actor choices floating around on the net (that didn't get the part), but I can't remember who they were now. I have to think about it for a bit.

Sorry to derail the thread. Keep the Batman goin'.

Let's hope this film's success isn't judged in some part as a tribute to the late Heath Ledger.  It's got the makings of a great film WITHOUT dedicating every mention of it to a dime-a-dozen Hollywood overdose story...

When's it due out, by the way?

I still would have loved to have Mark Hamill play the Joker, just so we get that signature Joker laugh from the older animated series before the WB started dumbing it down for the kids (namely when Robin jumped in). I still think Mask of the Phantasm is one of the best Batman movies ever made, yes, I'm comparing an animated film with all of the live action ones. I really liked Batman Begins, but Mask of the Phantasm can still hold its own in my opinion. And I think it was actually quite close to the comic version, much closer than Tim Burton ever got, and I'm not even going to mention the others, lol.

Tim Burton's Batman was cool in that he was kind of psychotic and dark, which is ONE aspect of Batman/Bruce Wayne from the comics, but he neglected all of his other sides. He made his character kind of one-dimensional, but still MUCH MUCH better than Kilmer or *shudders* Clooney...

So far I think the best Batman movies must be Mask of the Phantasm and Batman Begins. The Dark Knight looks like it will be another hit. But still love the animated Joker. Come on, you HAVE to love a character that when faced with a credible threat to his life, would choose to use a salami (or was it balogna?) in his defense than a cleaver, lmao!

I agree about the Kilmer and Clooney versions.

I think the Batman concept just works better when done in a serious nature, as opposed to campy tongue-in-cheek.

Ledger's serious psychopath version of the Joker seems far more appealing to me than any of the others before it.
