Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" storyline revealed?

I have long held the philosophy that "spoilers" only enhance my anticipation and excitement over a given project. Sure I understand that there is a certain thrill at going into a film or television episode not having a clue what happens and I respect those that share that sentimentality but I love spoilers and they only enhance my excitement level. Besides sometimes it's just fun to discuss and speculate the possibilities even if they prove to be false later.

Yeah, they just come up with crazy rumors that turn out not to be so at all - like the time in 2007 that Moriarty reported that the JJ Abrams Star Trek movie might include the destruction of Vulcan.

They're silly like that.

Actually AICN is the second site that reported the story that I know. I first saw it weeks ago on another site. They just picked up the story.

Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" storyline revealed?

The other thing to remember is the way Nolan used Year One for the last 2 films.

There are lots of things taken from that comic and put into the films but reading that comic wouldn't help you learn the actual plot of either Begins or The Dark Knight.

Ooooh, you can think of one story they got right. 3 years ago. I take it all back.

Yawwwwwnnnnn. Really? Someone thought we wanted to see Batman square off in a psychological thriller with a bald doctor? That we want to see Batman vs the police department in yet another chase scene? To see Alfred offering sage advice on how Bruce must just endure until they realize they need him again?
I am seriously underwhelmed by this news.

Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" storyline revealed?

^What did you expect to see after "Dark Knight"? It was always going to be a different story than the overwhelming awesomeness we were treated to in "The Dark Knight". I think the change in tone is perfect. Hugo Strange is a very underrated character that will work perfectly in the Nolan world. I'm actually really looking forward to see what they do with the Batman Task Force (my own name)/Police hunt aspect.

And what makes you think this won't be fantastic? I don't recall it ever being done in a live action Batman film and when it was done twice by "Batman: The Animated Series" (in the episode "On Leather Wings" and the spin-off feature film "Batman: Mask of the Phantasm") it was awesome both times.

Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" storyline revealed?

^ I remember 'Liam Neeson and Cillian who? Hardly Jack Nicholson or Jim Carrey, are they?' And then it was 'Heath Ledger as the Joker? OMG, this is going to suck!'

Have faith in Nolan, hasn't let us down yet, has he?

Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" storyline revealed?

That is the bit of philosophy that I hold on to, even though when I read the story about where the plot is based on I thought this fits like a glove! There will no doubt be fans who aren't interested in this if it proves to be true but you still gotta give Nolan the benefit of the doubt. This is also my opinion on him selecting Zack Snyder. If Nolan himself wasn't confident in Zack's abilities then I doubt he would have hired him.

With Christina Hendricks as Ivy and Patrick Stewart as Freeze! That would have been awesome and a cameo from Rosie Huntington Whitely as Nora Freize.

Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" storyline revealed?

I could see Nolan using elements of Prey, much as he's used elements of Year One and Long Halloween - but the use of these things has been very loose. Which is good. Strange can be a very effective villain, and I'm sure Nolan will do as he's done up until now and deliver a story with several layers of antagonists. What's encouraging about this (if true) is that he doesn't seem to be being dragged off into silliness, which is always a danger at this point in a movie series.

Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" storyline revealed?

Yeah I agree...like with "Year One" and "Dark Victory" and "The Man Who Laughs" along with "The Killing Joke" which have all been cited as source material that inspired the plots in "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" "Prey" will undoubtedly be reworked to fit in with what the Nolans and Goyer have planned with "The Dark Knight Rises", don't think there is any question about that. It's just interesting that if true he has taken a pretty obscure and not fairly old Batman story and turned into something that will be no doubt interesting for the majority of Batman fans.

I'm not a huge fan of Hendricks's but her a Poison Ivy I could see.
