Oh, I would love to watch that.

Wasn't Spielberg very hands-on with the Transformers movies?

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

I've read he is the one who told Bay to fire Megan Fox after the Hitler comment...but yeah he was fairly hands on.

Only with the first one, I think (he came up with the idea of "a boy and his car" and suggested Bay as a director), less with the two sequels.

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

Yeah he is the one who suggested and supported Bay as director. I think he's quoted somewhere as saying there is no one else that could bring "Transformers" to life like Michael Bay or some such quote. As mentioned he also heavily supported him after the fiasco with Megan Fox.

Conversely, Tim Burton had absolutely nothing to do with Batman Forever. His name was only on there to fulfill his contract, I believe.

I read the EW interview with Speilberg last month and he said that story isn't true

Sounds interesting. I have only a passing familiarity with Batman Beyond. One friend swears it's great, and another swears it's garbage. I guess I'll have to get the DVD's one of these days and see for myself.

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

BB is remarkably good given the fact that the concept was business, not creative, driven (from what I've heard, WB corporate wanted a "teen Batman" cartoon).

Another example of why Dini and Timm, not DiDio and Lee, should have been handed the keys to the DCU.

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

There was a bit of development for a "Batman Beyond" live action movie. A first draft exists somewhere. Clint Eastwood was heavily rumoured (but I don't think anyone was ever attached). It kind of just died. The screenplay is one of my holy grail scripts.

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

You know, it's sad to realize that, to a lot of potential BB filmgoers, if Adam West were cast as Bruce, the reaction would be "why is the Mayor from 'Family Guy' playing Batman"

Re: Once Nolan's trilogy ends..

I think a tv series would work if it focused on dick's journey from circus acrobat to robin to nightwing. Bruce/batman would be a mentor who probably wouldn't be in every episode (like the president in the west wing). You can also introduce other members of the bat family like babs (maybe even have a cliffhanger episode based on a killing joke resulting in her becoming oracle and how that effects her relationship with dick and Bruce etc). Hopefully this idea wouldn't play out like smallville or dawsons creek...

You are stating with absolute certainty that you are writing off a film that hasn't even been conceived of yet, let alone made. You are priceless

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.
Yeah, but he'll only do it in 20 years time for US$65 million + 30% box office gross.
