Well, so is Johnny Depp.

I would think the response on this board would be quite different if instead of Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Nolan had announced the casting of Mario Lopez, Paris Hilton and Vanilla Ice.
Well, sure. Go from one extreme to the other.

At least Nolan doesn't use the same actor or two for every single movie he does.

Well so far there isn't a Christopher Nolan movie generator like there is with Tim Burton:

I've watched that so many times. I love Danny Elfman's bit.

Lately? Yeah.

I loved the College Humor video of the meeting of Burton and his "creative team" and Elfman bit is hilarious because Elfman has gotten pretty much in the same Rehash/Reuse Rut that Burton is, only not nearly as bad.

Sort of a double-edged sword here. It can be argued that pretty much every director reuses the same cast and crew members he's has success with. Spielberg, Howard, Burton, Cameron, Nolan plenty of others have lots of commonalities between each movie usually reusing actors, reusing production people, score writers, etc. But Burton, rightfully, gets picked on because he's done it down right mundane levels. Most other directors will use those same elements but will actually, maybe, make things a bit different here and there or at the very least make a good story.

Burton? He's playing "paint by numbers" at this point and he's not even doing it to tell a good story or to tell a good story in an interesting or new way. Basically, Burton is phoning it in.

So, yeah, Nolan is resuing the same actors and production people but at the very least he's telling good stories and making movies worth seeing.

Obviously Michael Cain is Nolan's John Ratzenberger.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

@Christopher mostly likely "Insomnia". I have no problem with directors reusing actors they've worked with before in previous films. Shows a comfort level with their work and probably that they can get along with each other and a measure of trust.

Michael Caine had a supporting role in The Prestige and he had a cameo in Inception. I don't see how that's comparable to Tim Burton, who reuses Johnny Depp and/or Helena Bonham Carter for lead roles in nearly every movie he does.

Also, that's an unfair comparison because Burton has done more movies than Nolan, and it seems like Caine is Nolan's lucky charm, and might appear in every other Nolan movie from hereon in either small or supporting roles, but I don't see how that's comparable to reusing the same main actor or two for every movie in a lead capacity. It would be something if Caine was the lead in The Prestige and Inception but he wasn't.

So Big Fish was his last movie that didn't have Depp in it? Helena Bonham Carter was in it though if I recall.

Looks that way, with Planet of the Apes being the last with neither. Although I think he has a movie in production without either right now.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

Does Robin really have to be a Boy Wonder?
Quoted for truth. One of the things that Schumacher films seems to be unfairly criticized for was making Robin older. There are plenty of things to criticize those films for, but this isn't one of them, imho.

In a comic, having a 13 year-old Robin works because it is a comic. The suspension of disbelief can stretch further. In a live-action movie, that suspension of disbelief isn't as strong to allow a 13 year-old to fight along side Batman.

How old was Robin suppose to be in BF/B&R, anyway? 18? 19? I know Chris O'Donnell was in his mid-20s, but that hasn't stopped Hollywood from casting people in their 20s as later teens.

Also, did they ever call Robin "Boy Wonder" in those films? Or indicate that Bruce took him on as his ward? From what I remember, Bruce basically offered him a place to stay since his family was gone and Dick had no real place to go (of course the shared experience of their parents dying undoubtedly fueled that).

Wow...that was quite the tangent.

That being said, Nolan has stated time and again that Robin won't be in his take on Batman. As such, I don't expect Robin to show up a Nolan Batman film.
