Re: Nolan -verse update

I personally think that the third film is going to resolve any of Bruce's doubts or internal conflict that he has about his role of Batman's that was created by the events of The Dark Knight which I like to look at as a purely Batman film while Batman Begins is a Bruce Wayne story. I think "3" is going to "merge" these two concepts.

Re: Nolan -verse update

I think what Lapis was referring to is that she doesn't want Nolan to cheat his story and the progressing story of the films he's made so far. If the story calls for Batman to die or to have his secret identity revealed, or to give up the mantle, then the story should not shy away from that.

Nolan should be able to end the movie his way, given the creative control he's been granted over the past two films, and not worry about ending the film because Batman is a franchise character. Like I mentioned before, that mentality is what hindered the Burton/Schumacher films and one of the vital reasons why Nolan's films have been so successful.

Re: Nolan -verse update

The Freak: The Riddler or Mr Freeze
Second Villain: Hush or Clayface
The Mob: The Squid or Black Mask

I think Poison Ivy would be great too.

Re: Nolan -verse update

I think the studio has complete confidence in whatever story that Nolan develops and will allow him to make the final film the way he wants to which is only a good thing for us fans. I chose Talia and Black Mask as villains for the third film because I think it circles back to the start of the film. Talia is the daughter of Ra's al Ghul and represents unfinished business with his mentor while Black Mask leads a rebirth of the mob. I would introduce Selina as a true romantic interest for Bruce. Rachel's death would affect him greatly to the point where he'd probably not seek out anyone but this mysterious Selina Kyle has caught his interest. Taila could potential be used in a triangle situation...have some kind of back story where she was off at college and only heard about Bruce in correspondence with her father (like in the novelization for Batman Begins) but grows fascinated by this man her father considered a possible heir.

Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, & Bane are all too scientifically goofy to fit in Nolan's universe.
We've already seen a 600 year old man and a guy who's skin was bleached by acid get reworked to fit. There's no reason why the same can't be done with the other villains. That said, I've never held out much hope that we'd ever see villains like Freeze or Poison Ivy. It's a shame too because I've always wondered what they'd be like in Nolan's universe.

Completely unsubstantiated internet rumor via "Batman on Film" that has no real source:

Emily Blunt passed on Captain America to remain eligible for Catwoman in the next Batman movie according to an "industry insider friend." But the site also states that there's no evidence Catwoman will even be in the next movie.

Emily Blunt just talked about that in a recent interview and said she was flattered by the rumor but it had no validity. She did make a claim that she would love to play Catwoman if there was an offer, however she admitted it would be hard to top Michelle Pfiefer's performance. http://www.batman-on-film.com/BATMAN...il-9-2010.html
While everyone was pining for Angeline Jolie to play Catwoman, I thought that Nolan would go for someone like Rose Byrne, someone people wouldn't suspect, just like all his other casting choices.

I'd love to see a "Nolan" Mr. Freeze or Poison Ivy (no Bane please). I never cared a whole lot for Poison Ivy (and mind you, I don't know her fromt he comics at all) but I thought she was cool in the Arkham Asylum game and would like to see how she'd be done.

Re: Nolan -verse update

I think Riddler would be the best choice as he can provoke action but of a pretty different sort than what we've seen before and he would be different enough from Joker that whether he's better or worse could be mostly avoided (in my view he's good enough).

The Riddler as a villain would also likely involve more material between Batman and Gordon and force Gotham to do more evaluation about Batman.

Poison Ivy would be "escalation" with physical threats but probably too much. Hugo Strange and a returned Scarecrow could play interesting roles, though returning to Scarecrow and having another psychologist probably wouldn't excite people.

They should bring back Bob the Goon. It is really the only logical choice.

Bat - Mite?

But seriously Freeze would be very well. Especially that craptacular piece Arn-ahld did needs redeeming.
