Lame title. I worry that it will become a formulaic title now as the series progresses. What next? The Dark Knight Sleeps?

I think the "Caped Crusader" nickname has probably gotten too associated with the 60s Adam West series for them to seriously consider it as a title.
That was 50yrs ago. It's not on DVD and I'd be surprised that its playing in many, if any, markets in reruns now. Seriously, if that is at all a reason its a dumb one. I recall all the fuss about "No one is going to know what/who The Dark Knight is" when that title was announced. Amazing what proper marketing can do.

Proper marketing would once again let people know this movie(Caped Crusader or Shadow of the Bat) is the followup to Nolan's The Dark Knight.

it would sound cooler to use "The Dark Knight Detective"
Maybe he could investigate why there are already 5 pages about a friggin' movie title.

Upcoming next: Chris Nolan sneezes. 20 pages of discussion.
OMG Christopher Nolan's sneeze was the best sneeze ever!!!! It was SO much better than any other sneeze we've ever had!!!!
Personally, I found the sneeze cliché and pedestrian.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

The Dark Knight Rises would've been a great title if the previous film wasn't called The Dark Knight. Now it just seems a little odd.

Not an official reason, AFAIK. Just theorizing. But it's true that ever since Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, the instances of Batman being called the Caped Crusader or the Darknight Detective have gone way down.

Agreed. The James Bond movies have never had the character's name as a part of the official title, and they've been doing pretty well for the last 50 years.

What, you want it to be silly and cartoony like all those other sneezes out there? Nolan's sneeze had SO much more depth!!! It was the most realistic sneeze ever, you guys!!!!

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

I don't really care much for the title since it's so close to the name of the previous film. But in the end it doesn't matter since most people are going to refer to it as "that new Batman movie" anyways.

If Hugo Strange winds up being the big bad then I can see Tom hardy playing him.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

I was disappointed to hear Nolan wasn't going to do Mr. Freeze...which I think could fit in the Nolan-Batman world if they get a great actor to play Dr. Victor Fries...thinking Patrick Stewart...but Tom Hardy could work...see where I am going.

Mr. Freeze!!!

Not true. I see DVD's for Batman: The Movie everywhere. In fact, my friend has a copy and loves to watch it for fun, constantly repeating the infamous "Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb" line.

The TV series. I would've thought using the term "reruns" indicated that.
Still that lone movie should hardly be considered a barrier.

I guess The Dark Knight Beats The Living Hell Out of Asshole Criminals wouldn't fit on the poster.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

Why not "Rise of the Dark Knight"?

I prefer "Gotham" frankly.

Or "Gotham Rising" now...

Or "Fall of the Dark Knight"

Or "The Dark Knight Falls" is even slightly better.
