It's been confirmed that both Christian Bale and Tom Hardy will lose 100 pounds for their roles and play Batman and Bane respectively as scrawny little twigs.

It's the first three letters of "diet" that will end up pit-falling our hero in this installment.

^ Batman tries his hand at an open mic comedy night and, er, dies onstage?

(If Joel Shumacher had made another movie, this almost certainly would have featured)

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

Has there been any more casting rumors? The Talia thing is still out there. Yes, I'm holding out hope.

Well, I'll have to take your word for it, but I just meant that my initial reaction was one of surprise, not that I still think he can't do it.

And I do think that Nolan is likely to play up Bane's intellectual side more than his physical side, since after all we are talking about a Nolan film here. Do you really think the main villain in the climax of Nolan's Bat-trilogy would be someone who would only challenge Batman on a crude physical level? All his film foes to date -- Falcone, Scarecrow, Ra's, Joker, Two-Face -- have challenged him more on a level of intellect, emotion, and strategy than muscle power. I don't think that's likely to change. So I think that whether Hardy can meet the physical standards for the role is probably a rather unimportant question. I'm expecting Bane-as-mastermind rather than Bane-as-superthug.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

Wasn't there a report a few weeks ago that Tom Hardy wasn't playing the main villain? I only ask because Hardy and Hathaway were just actor confirmations along with their roles. Nolan didn't get into the importance of their roles. I swear I remember reading something last month where Nolan said that Hardy wasn't going to be the main villain. Maybe this has changed since then but it's still food for though. We're all assuming a whole bunch here with casting not finished yet.

Yes.
Nolan only announced who would be in the roles, not who's first or secondary in their parts.
For all we know, Bane could be to this film what the Calculator was to "Dark Knight".

I'm not assuming, just conjecturing. Maybe "expecting" was too strong a word.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

I'm wondering if anything happens with Mr. Reese, or the Bank Manager played by William Fichtner. Especially Fichtner seemed so totally random to me, as he's a pretty well known face, and I always took the Joker's line "what doesn't kill you simply makes you stranger" as some kind of foreshadowing.

Anyone get this vague reference to title censorship of another movie?

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

I've been wondering the same about Reese. I have my own thoughts about him, much to Jackson Archer's disdain I don't think he'll be revisited.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

I'm have a feeling that we won't actually know who the overall villain will be for a while, and probably through spy channels before we hear anything from the official production. If Neeson is going to make a reappearance I can see them trying to dance around it just long enough for someone at WB to ruin the surprise with a press release like with the whole "Neeson is Ra's oh waitshitcrap we mean Ducard" thing.

I'd really like to see Venom on the street turning everyday thugs into serious threats. Bane himself is obviously a physical opponent and the first real physical challenge for this Batman, but having the one big tough guy he has to fight at the end is a bit too much like a video game or, yes, a comic book. I'd rather see him using the Venom to pump up his goons so they can wear down Batman first.

I doubt it.
Nolan also cast well known actors Ken Wannabee & Michael Jai White in one shot roles as well.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

^ I think we could see Venom weaponized and as a street drug that is growing rampantly out of control. This is being distributed by the Mob which Bane is attempting to rally under his control. We've seen with the first movie drugs as a plot device so I don't think it would be that crazy to use it again.
