Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

I'm 50/50 on the issue. The "Young Bruce Wayne" series proposal had a lot of interesting concepts in it but I really don't see it lasting for more than two or three seasons. They milked "Smallville" far longer than it should have been in my opinion (I think we disagree on this too). Besides which I kind of think we got a live action Batman series with Green Arrow in "Smallville" which was basically modified Miles and Gough plans for Bruce Wayne.

I thought Adam Knight was suppose to be Batman? But, yeah, I know what you mean.

I can see a Young Bruce Wayne series working because they would obviously add the CW formula to it (I don't mean that in a bad way - it's a workable formula). Plus, it would be superhero show without being a superhero show, much like Smallville was in its early days.

I just think doing a full-on Batman show would be incredibly difficult to pull off in terms of making it marketable (though, that is probably not the right term).

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

Whatever happens after the reboot in a couple of years will be interesting to see and what process Nolan follows as the Executive Producer of the thing. I'm still intrigued by this new animated series they're developing.

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

I'd rather they just let the property stay dormant for a while, as I'm rather sick of superhero movies after the cycle of the past ten years, but obviously that'll never happen. Hopefully the next take on the character is a radical departure from the Nolan/Goyer version; if they wanted to continue in the same vein why reboot?

Christian Bale as an older Batman in ten or twenty years might be interesting, provided the next movie doesn't kill off the character.

I do agree though, I'd like to see a Batman that could field Clayface, the immortal Ra's,

A TV show set in Nolan's universe would be the most probable option for a live action show, in my opinion. Why? Because Gotham looks like a normal city: lower budget. Because this version of Batman is immensely popular: high ratings.

I'd love to see that, but I don't know how well it would do. A lot of hot movie properties aren't so hot as weekly TV shows.

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

It's time we had a comedy Batman that mercilessly mocks everybody and everything.

No more serious and grimness. Bring on Adam West. Or somebody like him.

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

^ I've had thoughts about a live-action Batman Beyond series that's a continuation of the 60s show, that also has Adam West as an elderly Bruce Wayne.

A hyper stylized Robert Rodriquez Batman film that combines elements of "Sin City" with tarantino's Crazy 88 sequence from kill Bill..with a twangy surf rock soundtrack. But no camp.

So, then "camp".
Only if you consider the films I cited--along with Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Desperado, etc.-- as "camp."

EP could easily be a ceremonial title (for lack of better term).

After all, Burton and Spielberg were producers on, respectively, "Batman Forever" and the "Transformers" series but you don't see much of their vision in either.

I think once we see "Superman: Man of Steel" we'll have an idea how Nolan handles executive producer duties.

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

^ It's just called "Man of Steel" btw. No Superman in the front of it and Nolan has been very hands on including re-writing the script himself a couple of times. He also personally hired Snyder and his brother and David Goyer wrote the script. Nolan seems like the type of person where he's very hands on and cares about the jobs he undertakes. I very much doubt that he took on the Executive Producer title for the reboot for ceremonial purposes. If he wasn't interested he would have just walked away after his trilogy was finished.

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

There's a big difference between Batman and Superman, though. Superman cannot be portrayed like Nolan's Batman. Superman flies, has super strength, can shoot lasers out of his eyes, etc. He is by nature unreal. I don't really think we can use Man of Steel to gauge how Nolan would handle being only EP on a Batman film.

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

Sigh. Yeah we went through this debate in the "Man of Steel" film thread. My point though was that Nolan has been very hands on "Man of Steel". He only stepped back due to "The Dark Knight Rises" going into production earlier this year. Otherwise he's been extremely interactive with "Man of Steel".

Emphasis added.

Until then, and ever after that, it is only speculation as to how "hands on" he is or isn't in terms of putting his stamp on the next Batman series.
