The next Batman reboot
 
When the Nolan films run out of steam(ie, when he quits doing them and they bring in other directors and fuck everything up again) and they once again reboot the series, I think it would be really cool to have it set in 1939. The animated series kind of had that look, but in a modern setting, and it worked really well. It'd be awesome to see a "period" Batman film. And I know they'd never do this, it's just wishful thinking, but what would be even cooler is if they did it in black and white, in a film noir kind of style. You know, similar to Sin City. A really dark, moody B&W Batman set in the time that the comic debuted, that's my dream Batman movie.

I'd actually like the opposite, a Batman Beyond futuristic take on it. Maybe a fourth movie introducing Robin and then in 10 years they continue with robin becoming The Batman.

Why reboot at all?

If Nolan keeps doing stories like this I would like him to make Batman movies for as long as he can direct. Even if it means changing some of the actors. His stories in the 2 Batman movies so far are amazing.

Because Warner Bros. likes making money.

It would be neat to see a Batman movie as a period piece, or maybe do something like the Gotham of BTAS, but they'll most likely keep it set in the contemporary era.

He has already said his next is his last and I don't see him changing his mind.

I'll be shocked if he does any more than the trilogy. In fact, I expect there to be some closure to The Dark Knight Rises—Nolan is telling a story, not spinning out a franchise indefinitely.

And I'm fine with that. That's how comics work best, really. Someone else will eventually come along and make their own version of Batman, and we can only hope that it'll be as good.

Nolan has even said in interviews that intends to provide closure in the third film.

Closure...

And what might THAT mean? The death of Dick Grayson's parents and Bruce taking him in, then everything fades to black?

Bruce gives up being Batman? Wayne Manor's rebuild is finally complete and he's back in the real bat-cave?

Tom Welling appears in tights and cape and says "I think we'd work well together"?

Unless he kills of Batman, you can always make a sequel to a Batman film. He didn't even kill of Joker in the last one because he probably intended on having him back in this one. Heath Ledger's death obviously didn't allow that.

Nolan can't keep doing Batman movies forever. It's time for new directors to take over.

They just need to remember to never make another Batman and Robin.

Yeah, that'd be the antithesis of everything Nolan's been working toward. :lol:

Based on what the films have done so far, my guess would be Bruce Wayne hanging up the cowl, because Gotham no longer needs Batman. But I'm also not making the movie, so I could very well be wrong.

i want a series which uses Robin and brings in Batgirl without fucking it up.

I'd love a period piece. Maybe not explicitly a period piece, but a live action version of the Animated Series would make me so happy. As great as the Nolan movies are, Bruce Timm's version will always be the definitive Batman for me. I have no shame saying that I bought that series on DVD when it came out and I still will occasionally dig it out for a re-watch.
