Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I really like Cotillard's work (I much prefer her to Hollywood's last Token French Chick, Audrey, Tatou).

Hold on, Cotillard was the wife in Inception, right? Is this film going to reunite the entire cast of that film?

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Nolan seems to be developing a regular cast of characters for his films, seeing how Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks just like Heath Ledger I'm guessing that if Ledger hadn't bought the farm HE'D have been cast as Arthur in Inception.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Is anyone else worried Nolan & CO. might be over reaching on this one?

I know he's the flavor of the month director, but every flavor of the month directer inevitably has his flop.

Why do you think he's overreaching? I guess for me his previous 2 Batmans were so good I find it hard not to have faith in the man.

Where is he over reaching? The movie will succeed or fail based on its story and the performances delivered by the actors. Hiring the biggest name best actor/actress you can get, only increases the chance the movie will succeed.

If the story is bad and the movie bombs no one will say, well if they had only hired worse actors the movie would have been better. But on the flip side, a good performance can carry/save a bad movie.

So as long as Nolan is the hot flavor of the month he might as well capitalize and bring in the best talent possible.

My philosophy is, there's enough real stuff to worry about already, so there's no point inventing new worries out of thin air.

Problem is, after The Dark Knight, any Nolan-Batman that's not breaking half a billion dollars will be considered a flop.

Ken Wanatabe's Batman character died in Begins, so that's one out. But we might get more Cillian Murphy, though I doubt it.

Editing to add what seems to be the first set pic from the movie, but it's nothing too exciting:

Nice. Hopefully the film is going back to the Batman Begins style. The Dark Knight was a better movie in many aspects, but it lacked the darkness from Batman Begins. It also lacked most of the Bat symbolism that was very prominent in Begins.
