Re: The next Batman reboot

I'd love a "Batman Beyond" movie. One was in development but fell apart. Clint Eastwood was rumored to play Old Bruce. A "Batman Beyond" movie directed by Duncan Jones would be awesome.

Arguably that's what the Burton films were at least in terms of the look of the sets and costumes. In fact, as I recall, Burton originally had a certain amount input on the design of the Timm series.
That's true. I didn't really like the Burton movies though. To me, they felt more like Tim Burton movies than Batman movies.
I really, really liked the first one, but Batman Returns was just too goofy for me. They really camped it up for that one, and I just wasn't feeling it. I watch it occasionally, but much of it gets on my nerves. The first one though, perfect, IMO.

Was the one that was in development live action? That would have been cool.

Re: The next Batman reboot

I agree, I would love a Batman Beyond film. Just don't know who would make a good Terry McGinnis.

Based on what the films have done so far, my guess would be Bruce Wayne hanging up the cowl, because Gotham no longer needs Batman. But I'm also not making the movie, so I could very well be wrong.

The third film isn't called "The Dark Knight Rises" for a reason

The cave and possibly a new car will signify that Bruce will probably accept he'll never stop being batman. The city needs the dark knight and he'll fight till his last breath.

Nobody will ever make me watch a Batman movie that's not directed by Nolan. His take on Batman is perfect, imo. It's like Lord of the Rings. Won't watch a new take on it. Jackson did it already.

That would have been the best movie ever.

Burton films were very 80s, mixed with his usual dark and gothic look and a smidgeon of art deco. It only went as far as the surface though, and the exact same movies could have been made in a then-modern setting.

TAS took the best parts of the setting, and filtered out the Burtonism and 80s tackiness. It was a timeless setting that far surpassed the films that inspired it.

Re: The next Batman reboot

David Henrie from "Wizards of Waverly Place" would make a fine Terry McGuiness. He kind of looks like a live action version of him. A little older actor would maybe be Arnie Hammer from "The Social Network". He'd work too.

Re: The next Batman reboot

^ Terry was meant to be about 17, IIRC. Arnie is too old. They'd need a newcomer.

I remember when the BB live-action movie was discussed, there was talk of Keanu Reeves - then in his mid-to-late 30s - as Terry. WTF?!

I've never seen Clint as old Bruce either. Too blue collar. Had they made that movie a decade or so ago, I'd have preferred to see Coburn or Newman play the part.

Re: The next Batman reboot

I'd like to see a late 40s, early 50s period Batman film that uses Dick Sprang's art as the source material. Something that's purposefully kitsch and doesn't get bogged down in the whole brooding Dark Knight of the last 20 years.

Re: The next Batman reboot

^Indeed, especially since he was already waning with The Dark Knight.

Frankly I don't have a clue at who could play Old Bruce.


Although Beau Bridges may work.
