Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Not much but Hans Zimmer talks briefly about using an orchestra for the TDKR score.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

he convinced Warner Bros. to let him book the "biggest, craziest orchestra for two days" and that the score for The Dark Knight Rises is "very, very radical, very different stuff.
Pity, one of the things I enjoyed most from the first two movies were the similar scores.

Then again it's Hans freaking Zimmer, I'm sure he knows what he's doing.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I'm going to bump this thread since I incorrectly started a new thread about a topic that should have been here. I'll basically re-post it....


---------



I'm really disappointed the Riddler isn't the villain.


There's just so much potential for a character like the Riddler to be incorporated into the dark realism of Nolan's Gotham.


I thought he would be an intellectual serial killer. Maybe a professor who hunts down his victims with style and a twisted sense of humor. He didn't have to be a Joker clone. Not even close.


I'm disappointed with the Bane choice. I understand the desire to have a physical threat, but my expectations have definitely been lowered, even after seeing the previews.


Hope I'm wrong, and I hope we get another great addition to Batman. But I just really had my hopes up to see an awesome new take on the Riddler.

Jared Leto as The Riddler would have been epic.

I am not excited about Bane...then again...I don't like these Batman movies too much anywayz.

For sure! Leto would have been ideal...or Depp...or a few others....

I do really enjoy the new franchise though. Somehow I get a feeling that the creators/actors don't. It seems there's a real push by Nolan and co. to make this the final, no-questions-asked end to the series. They want it to end.

That's worrisome, and the rejection of the Riddler reinforces my fear that they're not striving to out-do the last installment.

After seeing the last one, I immediately knew the third film would need to be epic. A great story with a classic villain. Bane might be a comic book favorite, but he isn't that. It's a classic set-up for disappointment.

Again though, I hope I'm wrong. I'll go in with an open mind and I really want it to be awesome. I love Batman and Nolan has been great. Still though, I'm worried.....

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

^ Actually Nolan was hesitant to even do a third film due to thinking he wouldn't be able to top "The Dark Knight". It wasn't really until he was working on "Inception" that he finally decided to make the movie. Also of course they want to end the trilogy. It has a definitive beginning, middle, and now it will have an ending. Everyone who has talked about the project so far that worked on it has said how impressive and "mind blowing" it is. So I'm not worried at all.

Thank you. That's good to hear. I'm definitely rooting for them.

After enjoying the first two so much, I feel sort of ungrateful for doubting the third so openly. But, as you say, TDK was so good, I thought it almost needed the Riddler to have a chance.

And then I thought the Riddler would be perfect for Nolan's take on Gotham. Just disappointed in the choice.

Hell, I was even stoked for Batman&Robin before it first debuted () so I'm not going to judge this prematurely. But I'll still always wish I got to see Nolan's take on the Riddler....

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

To be honest, I think most fans were expecting we would see the Riddler and were surprised that he wasn't used. There have been a lot of awesome fan made posters depicting various takes on the Riddler. There is one I really like which suggested Guy Pearce as Nygma.

^ I really enjoyed the Riddler fan art too!

It seems like it was what the fanbase wanted to see. Like I said, hopefully Nolan will prove my worries to be unfounded. And I'll happily eat crow if/when he does.

But the fact that this is the third and final film, and we don't get to see his take on Nygma...well, it's just disappointing. That won't stop me from being in the theater on opening day though (or buying the DVD), which is, I'm sure, all the suits really care about anyway.
