He could wear his prosthetics from Looper and have Batman's new alter ego be Bruce Willis instead of Bruce Wayne.

I get the feeling that Nolan was pressured to give the studio an in for their next Batman. If this was his way of doing it, I have to admit, it's a creative way of acquiescing to studio pressure.

He was a better Batman in TDKR than Batman was in that entire trilogy. The 15 minutes in the middle of that movie with him actually being a farking detective were better than three movies worth of Bale screaming at everybody.

Aside from his figuring out the Joker's Smilex formula in Burton's movie and that nonsensical CSI thing with the bullet in TDK, Batman has been neither a scientist nor a detective in any of the movies. So next he'll be a detective but with no money and no martial arts training. Put the two together and you'd actually have most of a complete Batman.

Sure why not. Batman Rises sucked but set him up for the role.

I really didn't think they were setting up Jennifer Love Hewitt to actually be in the next Batman. I figured they would reboot the whole thing in a different universe where Superman and Aquaman and friends existed so they could do a Justice League movie. You know, a goofier universe.

I agree. While yes he was awesome in TDKR, he hasn't had a fraction of the training that that universe's Bruce Wayne did. He's gonna die on like his second mission out.

That would be interesting. Although I wonder if it'll happen; ie is the studio worried about the public's reaction to a "non-traditional" batman.

So an action film about a bunch of completely uninteresting characters.

If anyone wants to white knight the film I'm all ears but there is nothing I have seen come out of the DC films that makes me think their characters are interesting.

Non-traditional in the sense that he doesn't have a cape, or non-traditional in the sense that he has rocket boots that make him fly?
I'd figure a hybrid suit would make the most sense in the movie. Enhances his strength, agility, etc, but doesn't make him fly and still has a cape. I think audiences can relate to that. hell, Bruce Wayne had a M.A.N.T.I.S. leg in the most recent movie.

Great, he'll end up as Iron-Man.

Just put him in the old grey and blue, but give him the morphing jetpack/cape from Batman: the Brave and the Bold.

It's not like Warner Bros have the wit or talent to do a straight JL movie anyway, but if they go completely balls to the wall with the camp we might at least get something funny.

serial_crusher: I guess they're going to have Stephen Amell play the Green Arrow? I don't know, that show is kind of lame.


It's growing on me and it's getting better each episode as they figure out what the show is supposed to be. I think the problem is that the producers really wanted Smallville part 2 with lots of angst and love triangles but the writers just want a crazy vigilante to fill bad guys full of arrows.

If it lasts to season 2 I think it will be very good.
 
2012-11-27 09:16:05 AM
I'm fine with JGL being bats. Would kinda prefer to see him have a more Nightwing or Batman Beyond take on Bats but whatever form I'm cool with it. Still, think the perfect role would've made an excellent modern-day Riddler.

As far as the "world's greatest detective" comments above... bats changes over time to fit the era, he was heavily into high-tech gadgetry back in the Connery bond days and was much more the detective than the "worlds greatest martial artist" preptime batgod he is today. Oracle took the investigative gruntwork off his plate for the longest time, she ain't around no more and I'm not sure what is filling that gap but that era's take on bats remains.
 
2012-11-27 09:40:02 AM
Without the years of training, or the singular, iconic back story of his parents' murder, or Alfred, or Wayne Industries, it would be ridiculous to have JGL as Batman in the first-ever JL movie. That's just unacceptable. Seriously, just let the Nolan films stand on their own, or maybe have JGL play a similar iconic character, like Nightwing. As the character was presented in TDKR, John Blake can never believably be The Batman that people will hope for or expect, expository dialogue about "Batman could be anybody" be damned.

I saw each Nolan film multiple times in theaters (and even dressed as the Joker for the TDK premiere), so I'd say I'm a big Batman fan. But I just won't pay for a Justice League movie without Bruce Wayne as the Batman. It's an insult to the fans who have been waiting for years for WB to get their heads out of their asses and do something worthwhile with their characters as a group, like Avengers was able to achieve so successfully.

Not that any exec at WB gives a shiat about my opinion.

/Oh well. At least I'll always have this trilogy.
//But I'm still waiting for The World's Greatest Detective to show up in a film for more than 30 seconds, you assholes

i dunno about all that, but he WAS good in TDKR and honestly, he could probably pull this off.

So Batman, like James Bond, is an "assumed" identity and can be passed on generation after generation..I'm ok with that. It makes sense since Batman is well over 100 years old by now (not the comic, but Bruce Wayne).

SKYFALL SPOILER ALERT

When Bond and M go back to Bond's family farm, the gravestones name his parents as "Bond," and the groundskeeper identifies him as "James." It would be a remarkable coincidence for him to have the same name that is assumed by all 007s, so I think we can safely say that Skyfall punctured a hole in the generational James Bond theory.

There never was a James Bond generational theory. Bond's wife (the George Lazenby's Bond) was referenced in Dalton and Roger Moore Bonds. The opening of GoldenEye with Pierce Brosnan took place nine years prior, which would have been between Roger Moore and Dalton's runs. In one of the Brosnan ones, Q mentioned that Bond lost a certain number of watches that equaled the number of movies up to that point.

Not to mention the fact that it's not the best idea to give a secret agent a name that everyone in the know would know is a spy code name.

This series has really gone for a more humanized James Bond and, dare I say, more realistic villainy (on a relative scale - I know there's still fantastic elements). Acknowledging the multiple Bonds would say that Daniel Craig exists in the same world where Roger Moore went into space.

I'm good with thinking of each different Bond as a new character with a new background. If some of it overlaps, fine, but trying to connect all of them takes away from the good elements of each incarnation.

Personally, I really like the new series, QOS excepted. I just can't decide if I like Skyfall or Casino Royale better.

I'd say he could exist in the same world as GoldenEye, they're both about pissed off ex-MI6 agents. But then that would mean he'd also have to exist in the same world as Die Another Day, with invisible cars and Koreans who change into white guys.
