The All-Powerful Atheismo: Just checked, and he was also one of the few negative reviews on The Dark Knight also. He said "This movie is too in love with itself to make you love it."

WTF DOES THAT EVEN MEAN

This man can safely be ignored.


It insists upon itself.

Umm geez let's see. Wayne... Wayne Knight? Bruce Wayne in a film called the Dark Knight Rises... um. Ok the names are similar... Well I'm stumped. In that scene he says "we got Dodgson here". Are you saying "we got spoilers here"? Hrm, no that wouldn't make much sense. I guess there's a close resemblance of names. If a toddler or someone of young age exclaimed that the two were similar, surrounding adults would smile and nod at the child. Aside from that I have no idea what you're going for here.

Just get JJ Abrams to "re-imagine" it.

Bruce Wayne's parents don't die; just get an Indian Rug Burn from mugger. Bruce becomes only slightly emo crimefighter instead.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: HEDGEHOG MAN!!!

When crime rears its ugly head, Hedgehog Man rises to meet the challenge...

... sees his shadow, and another six weeks of crime spree is upon us.

Supes: Tannhauser: I also vote for a less gritty Batman. No origins! Unless it's not Batman. I'd kinda like to see him teach Robin how to beat up bad guys, just don't go full Schumacher.

Never go full Schumacher.

See I'd love to go in the opposite direction. An even darker Batman, couched in realism, a guy with severe emotional/mental problems and has no problem killing to get his point across. R-rated movie of course.

Let Superman be the noble hero. Batman's a different sort of character.


They already have that character. He's called The Punisher.

The entire purpose of Batman is to save lives and avoid killing. Batman is great because he's a dark malcontent who is also more noble than any of the "Boy Scout" heroes. He's the perfect combination.

Your idea is bad and you should feel bad.

Hmm, 96% on RT and it's definitely going to be a box office smash.

Better find out what Farkers think about it first.

Slaves2Darkness: JerseyTim: Which is why they shouldn't reboot it. Just tell Batman stories. They don't even have to be connected or maintain continuity. At this point, we really don't need an origin story. We get who the character is.

I don't know I think a reboot in the style of Batman Brave and the Bold would be awesome. You know square jawed shining good guy Batman, to contrast the dark and gritty Batman that we have seen lately.


Maybe a Tales Of The Dark Knight-style series. Each movie a different type. One, a B&B story, another could be Beyond, yet another one of the Elseworlds stories. At least a short, live-action telling of the "Boner" story.

Agreed.

That was one of the nice things about the Keaton Batman movie- they didn't bother to do a big origin story or anything else for Batman. It was just the Batman we already knew. The Nolan Batman has been just fine- great story, etc., but other than the increased grittiness, it hasn't brought much else to the plate.

Just do a Batman movie... pick a villain and get to it. There's no need to boot jack shiat. If you want to design your own Batmobile, go for it, but you don't need to come up with some kind of "here's how THIS guy got all his stuff." We're already suspending a fair amount of disbelief, we'll let the origin BS slide too.

They can always point to the stupid magic microwave gun in the first one, and say "We may suck, but at least we aren't that stupid".

Your only chance will be to hire an actual good writer.

And since the goddamn SAG has made that illegal in Hollywood, you're screwed.
