What Is Next For Batman?

With The Dark Knight Rises coming this summer: July 20, 2012. And Nolan being done with Batman as far as director...not sure as possibly producing someone elses movies...I am sure Warner Brothers would want him around a bit...but What is the future for Batman in films? A realistic re-boot(similar to Nolan's)...something closer to Burton's 1989 movie? Maybe something close to recent various animated versions...slightly cartoony with a bit of realism?

With Batman being a hot movie property I doubt we will ever see a live action TV series...but it would be nice.

[edit] Oops! There was this thread from earlier in the month; http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=156223 It hasn't been posted in since the 9th.

After this much success, probably coke, hookers, and a couple of busted up nightclubs and a long series of DUI court appearances followed by several failed rehab encounters only to have his life changed by Tom Cruise and Scientology.

Re: What Is Next For Batman?

I don't know if a TV series is out of the question, but it would need to be marketed right. I do think he'd be fine for TV. I don't know if an Adam West camp/satire version would work though. I enjoyed Black Scorpion, even if TV audiences obviously didn't. But I think audiences might take to one in the vein of Nolan's films and made it action oriented and cut down on the comicbook take which is what Scorpion went with for villains.

Re: What Is Next For Batman?

Need to see how this Green Arrow show 'Arrow' turns out...but something from the Batman universe should work on TV quite well...Like a Nightwing or Robin series...embargo be DAMNED!

Re: What Is Next For Batman?

I would like to see the Bat-Embargo finally dropped so we could actually get a decent live action television series of some sort, weather it be for Bruce or another character. I'd be up for a "Nightwing" series as I stated in the other thread. I don't know that we will get a live action series. We know that Nolan will be Executive Producer on a reboot. We just don't know what direction that is right now.

Re: What Is Next For Batman?

I'd love Green Arrow over Batman, since I'd like other characters to see on screen. Sure, Batman is far more likely to find success, but I don't need more. Have they talked of casting or using the actor from Smallville? I like the look of Charlie Hunnam for the part. http://theloveumake.com/wp-content/u...06-467-700.jpg

Re: What Is Next For Batman?

Feel free to post that in the Green Arrow thread; http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=157099



[edit] As far as Batman...I mean if they can have the toons...him in a live action series that would be different from possible future movies shouldn't be too difficult...I mean DC/Warner Bros would be involved in both.

Re: What Is Next For Batman?

I'm not sure how I'd feel about a live-action series, and I'm honestly not sure what a reboot will entail. It's really just going to depend on people's moods in a few years time, what they want out of a "Batman" film.

I'm still waiting for a Justice League movie. Maybe they will get the ball rolling on that again.

Re: What Is Next For Batman?

I'd love to see a very NYPD Blue-like Gotham Central television series with Batman primarily just a shadowy figure in the background of the stories (just like the comic series).

Actually, I think it almost happened several years back.

This has been discussed at length in a recent thread. I will refer the OP there for my thoughts.

Maybe Bruce Wayne actually passes the torch to Joseph Gordon Lewitt, and he becomes the star of a Dark Knight live action TV show?

Re: What Is Next For Batman?

Since Nolan's big screen adventures were and are so sucessful. I doubt that ANY series other than movies will be in the works. The only thing they have supported was "Smallville".

I linked to that thread in my OP after I became aware of it. If a MOD wants to merge the 2 threads that is fine.
