Catwomen?

I don't think that'd sit well with Nolan, Catwoman isn't old enough for people to have forgotten about.

Can they bring back Arnie for Mr. Freeze?  That would be sweet.  And they'd keep it so ALL his lines would be one-liners.  "You're not going to put me in da kool-ah"  that would be...awesome.

Mickey Rourke did Marv....it would NOT be difficult for him to be Bane.  Statham is too short and Vinnie Jones acts and looks too stupid.  If they choose to cast Bane it might just be someone no one has really heard of....that would be the best bet.

Dude, people forgave the Hulk. I'm sure they can forgive Catwoman too, especially if she isn't Halle Berry.

If Nolan is going to do Bane, why not include the Venom arc?  Bane organizes the break-out of Arkham, hypes several of the inmates up on the Venom drug, Bats gets the crap kicked out of him first go around. Enter Bane, disguised as a street dealer, who offers to "help" Batman and give him a more consentrated dose of the drug.  Batman kiks ass for about twenty minutes, but suddenly crashes, badly.  He is forced to keep fighting, even though he is suffering from withdrawl of the drug.  Bane, however, is off kidnapping Batman's allies (Jim Gordon, Rachel Dawes) and finds out who the Bat is.  He breaks into Wayne Manor, and waits.  There Batman gets the shit kicked out of him.

Because that would be horrible, cliched and something Grant Morrison would write. Seriously, that reads like Morrison's last arc on New X-Men.

That was the whole point of Venom, wasn't it?

And since the Venom drug is almost always associated with Bane, why not continue it

Actually, venom was rarely portrayed that way outside that horrible fucking movie.

In the comics, Bane was an incredibly brilliant guy who was naturally built like a tank. He used the venom as a leg up because it essentially was basically adrenaline. It pumped him up a bit further and dulled pain. You don't lose anything if you just completely eliminate the venom angle. In fact, even putting venom in would needlessly complicate matters and also come off as a bit "been there/done that" when stacked up against the fear toxin from the first movie.

The thing is, I could see a Batman with Bane in it ending in either:

A) Batman completely destroys Bane's mind to defeat him, essentially hitting him with every trick he has.

B) A giant mech suit.

I would be super psyched to see either of these movies.  You know what would be an excellent plot, once they've got all the villians tied together?  No Man's Land.

I honestly can not see how any critic could ever give this movie a bad review. Like usual, I find myself unable to describe with any eloquence how awesome this movie was, and I can't even try, its 3:34 am right goddamn now and I'm tired having been up all effin day.

Going to see it this weekend, I'm just going to say that the critic in the Baltimore Sun gave it a C for being too serious.  There was a little more to it than that, but that was what it boiled down to. 


Also, perhaps now would be a good time to make a seperate thread for the movie?  For spoilers and all...

Actually that post is a lie. If we're going to post actual spoilers we might as well shrink em down so only those who want to can read them.

Ledger was very good, good performances all around, except for Bale as Batman, but whatever. I was thrown a little bit by the gaps in some of the scenes. For example when the Joker crashes the Harvey Dent fundraiser at the Wayne tower, in one scene Wayne has incapacitated Dent and locked him in a closet, then he gets in his getup and saves Rachel Dawes from the Joker. The next scene Dent is in the police station and the Joker has apparently gotten away. What the fuck? Wouldn't the cops have surrounded the building? How did the Joker escape? And for that matter why didn't he or his men do any searching for Dent? How did Dent get out of the closet? Why isn't he curious as to the reason Wayne knocked him out and hid him? There are a couple of scenes like that, which just drop off, and I didn't fully buy the emergence of Two-Face, but overall it was pretty good. My favorite scenes had neither Bale nor Ledger. The first was the cameo by the Scarecrow, who I prefer to the Joker anyhow (what was up with all the early previews that mentioned interaction between the Joker and Scarecrow, possibly having to do with the crazy gas? Was that scrapped or never in the movie to begin with?) and the second was when the convict throws the detonator out the window.

I think The Joker was robbed of some screen time. It didn't feel like he got a lot of time to develop. Although, the pencil trick was pretty fuckin' nifty if you ask me. 

The way Harvey segued into being Two-Face was probably one of the better parts of the movie for me.

And for the love of God, can Bale cut out that fuckin' voice?

And they could have talked more about Batman's struggle with the whole situation at the end. Somehow it felt like he wasn't the main character...

More Ledger, some more Bale (at least with his struggle and whatnot) and I would have easily given this movie a ten.

Two questions though:

2)Who is going to be the villain in the next one?

There are some people, such as myself, that are using it to talk about the movie.  Then again, it is not up to me.  We shall see tomorrow if this thread stands or falls.


Personally, I would love to see some obscure character like they did in the first one with Ra's Al Ghul (I mean in comparison to characters like Joker, Penguin, or Scarecrow).  I am thinking Black Mask or Hush, leaning towards Black Mask because I really don't like Hush all that much.  Wait, Prometheus or Wrath would also be good.

This was a pretty awesome film. It ranks pretty highly in terms of character and plot, though thematically it's a bit heavy-handed.

I just got back from seeing this. Holy hell I have a new favourite movie. Absolutely perfect. My only complaint is that the couple sitting next to me wouldn't shut the fuck up. Don't worry, I'm going to see it again.

Such a great film. Heath Ledger was incredible. Bale was great too. I don't mind the voice at all, really. Nevertheless, Ledger totally stole the show. I would have liked to have seen more Two-Face though. He's such a great character and it's a shame they killed him off.

*Caution Spoilers.*
1) Excellent.  Brilliant.
2) I initially thought it was going to be Two-Face, but the end of the movie changed my mind.  I don't see them doing the Riddler again, since Jim Carey was the Riddler in Batman Forever, which was an okay movie.  I think there was some sort of Batman & Robin movie where they fought Poison Ivy and someone else, but that movie wasn't all that great if I remember correctly.  I really don't think a sequel is necessary, but that may just be me.

I liked the movie, but the more I think about it the more plot holes / contrivances jump out at me (why did Gordon fake his own death again?), and the more I dislike the direction they took with Two-Face. In the movie's he's just a rampaging, revenge-obsessed psychopath, which I guess is serviceable, but I remember in the Animated Series in particular (never was one for comics, unfortunately)  Two-Face was actually somewhat conflicted, an actual headcase rather than a disfigured killer, and rather than the two-headed coin being a gimmick that he's more than willing to work around (as shown by the limousine scene where the coin spares the mob boss once but Two-Face kills him anyway through the driver) it's a real weakness of his. I remember an episode of B:TAS where Batman throws the coin in a pile of quarters, and Two-Face is completely incapacitated as he frantically and single-mindedly tries to find the coin, leaving him to be picked up by the cops. Eckhart's Two-Face is unfortunately not nearly as interesting. The only thing the movie can claim a definitive status on is the Joker as far as I'm concerned. I'm of the opinion that Two-Face should've gotten the third movie.

Eckhart's Two-Face isn't as interesting as a guy with OCD...? Nolan provides us with a nuanced Dent and a legitimate dark side to that character. See his scene near the end with Ramirez - he's bound to the choice his coin makes. Sometimes he just has more than one choice.

Gordon faking his own death made sense insofar as his role in the MCU made him a very viable target for the Joker. What I didn't like as much about it was that I have no idea how he wound up driving Dent's van.

SPOILERS IN THIS POST

Gordon faked his own death so that the Joker wouldn't go after his family like Dent did in the end. I honestly thought the movie was over after the oil can scene. I was like 'Oh they'll continue this in the 3rd movie' I was very surprised when they continued for another hour or so. I was very pleased with the cameo by the Scarecrow.

One thing that bugged me was that they kept calling Batman "the Batman" it just bothered me.

I really want them to do the Riddler, he's one of my favourite Batman Villians.

I really liked Eckhart in this one, I just feel that his arc was too squashed (perhaps truncated, there's gotta be a 3 or 4 hour cut of this movie out there somewheres) he certainly shows a dark side, but I didn't buy his two stages of grief (crying in bed and then homicidal rage dictated by coin-tosses). and he was obviously discarded far too quickly.

I've skipped over all the spoilers and am going back to the discussion for Bane and I have to say it - every actor suggestion just doesn't seem right for that character. Like Jon said earlier, these movies are more rooted in reality and like he also said, I don't think the dude needs to be super huge in order to be considered strong. If the actor they choose (if they choose Bane) is built well enough and can fit the character, I don't think size will matter. Someone like Mickey Rourke would be cool, but I think Rourke himself is too old.

Also, I hated the look of Bane in B&R, so I'm hoping for a whole new look. Nolan did it very well with Scarecrow so I think he could with others.

I am sorry if this appears out-of-context to the current conversation (I am not reading page 3 because I haven't seen the movie) but the next movie will almost certainly not have the penguin because the directors want villains that have not been frequently used before.

That makes no sense considering the recent movie has the Joker and Two Face, both of which are pretty major.

I thought the same thing.

"Prior to the release of The Dark Knight in 2008, David Goyer ruled out using the Penguin or Catwoman as a villain in a future film, preferring to use antagonists from the comic that had not yet been portrayed on the big screen."
