    The track titles aren't too spoilery. Nice.

    I want, I want, I want it NOW! No. NEED!

    I'm sorry, did I sound a little much like Jackson just now?

    I have my tickets for The Dark Knight Rises. :D

    I bought tickets for my friends and I for The Dark Knight Trilogy on July 19th and The Dark Knight Rises in IMAX on the 20th.

    July 20th is so far away, but so close.

    July 20: One small step for man, a giant leap for the Batman.

    Actually, it's kind of the end trip for Batman, isn't it?

    I mean, it'll probably be another 5-6 years at least before a reboot.

    I doubt it. The Dark Knight was a license to print money, and The Dark Knight Rises is tracking to have a similar performance in its opening weekend. Warner Bros. won't sit on that cash train for long -- Jeff Robinov said last year that "we'll have to reinvent Batman" after the third film's release, and said that Nolan and Emma Thomas would be producing the reboot, presumably in a similar fashion to how they shepherded Man of Steel in its very early stages. I'd bet real money that we'll see another Batman film in 2015, possibly even 2014 if WB gets desperate enough since they don't have the annual Harry Potter cash cow to fall back on.

    I really doubt it. We'll probably see another Batman inside of five years and I really doubt it'll be a hard, full, reboot.

    interesting. I didn't know they were planning on continuing with Batman movies that quickly. Maybe a Batman-Superman movie if the "Man of Steel" reboot does well next year?

    Chris Nolan is remaining as Executive Producer on the reboot and will "grandfather" it as he has been doing on "Man of Steel". I too think it won't be that long of a turn around. Probably as long as Sony had with Spider-Man, which was one or two years. Maybe three. I like Timby's suggestion of 2015.

    If Man of Steel does well, I think DC will try to copy Marvel’s approach. Give us Batman and Wonder Woman movies in the same universe as the new Superman, maybe a new Green Lantern, Flash, Martian Manhunter, and/or Aquaman before bringing them all together in a Justice League movie.

    Wouldn't J.K. Rowling have to approve a Harry Potter reboot? I don't remember what Warner Bros control over the franchise is or how the film rights work.

    If that ends up being a problem WB can just reboot J.K. Rowling.

    They have lots of money. She's a human being. They can always work something out. Maybe they'll add a Harry Potter franchise to their animated TV offerings. :devil:

    Why not just continue the story in movie form? Lets see Harry as he's an adult, etc. etc.

    Yes. I realize how silly that idea sounds, but I'm sure some exec is wondering why it hasn't happened yet.

    From some of the reports (if people have believed them) regarding WB future plans for their films, it seems like they're concentrating on filling the Harry Potter gap with DC's heroes. They're looking for the DC Film universe to succeed the HP franchise as their main film franchise. That Cosmic Movie news site even stated that David Yates (who of course directed Potter films) was front runner to direct Justice League lol. (they reported it was "his film to lose")

    If there is any kind of continuation of Potter at all, it would come in book form first from Rowling and then possibly developed into a film.

    Honestly, I would love to see a Harry Potter animated series. I really think the universe is detailed enough that it could handle a multi-season series.
