Eh... I'm sure Nolan's got his reasons for being reluctant about having anything to do with this 3rd film. I hope for Bale's sake though that he ends up directing again. He's more enthusiastic about it than I thought.
Needless to say, I doubt this movie will do better than TDK, but that doesn't necessarily mean it'll be a disappointment.
Of course they could outdo themselves. The Dark Knight is not the greatest film of all time. It is not perfect. It's also not The Godfather. Hence, the next film could be superior. I have my doubts, but the Nolans haven't ****ed up yet, and they'll have no problem getting one ****ing amazing cast, if they want it.
Thanks to Badwolf for the great sig!
yeah, true they could outdo themselves but I just can't see it.. of course my opinon may change in 3 years when B3 actually comes ou but as of right now i do not see it.. besides remember how spidey 2 was the best and then came spidey 3 or the empire strikes back and then comes return of the jedi..i don't want the same thing here so i know that WB most likely will not try to outdo themselves

Eddie Murphy? Really? Prank article?
Or Johnny Depp? Read a local magazine article a few days ago that says it's between Johnny and Eddie. A local movie theatre magazine is a good edit, I guess. Can still be false, of course, but at least it's not the World Wide Web.

It's all from some article in The Sun. I wouldn't believe a word of it. There is no way that they've already cast Eddie Murphy, Rachel Weisz and Shia LeBoeuf, but haven't even got around to announcing officially that there will even be another Batman film.
Thanks to Badwolf for the great sig!
The magazine I read said that Eddie Murphy and Johnny Depp are both interested in playing The Riddler in the new Batman movie and that one of the two is the currently most likely choice. It being a fairly recent number and it implicating that it's still undecided makes me doubt The Sun as well
Of course, I'm certain the article could be interpreted in a large variety of ways
True but I would like to see him bring in Catwoman since I dont consider the 2004 flim Catwoman cannon in the Batman world.
Also I dont wanna see Robin in the next flim either since these Batman flim are meant to be Dark just as they are in the comics. I guess if they made a 4th intsallment they could include Robin but only if they can still keep it Dark and not kiddy friendly as they did in Batman Foreverand Batman & Robin.
If he did change his mind and had Catwoman she would definetely fit into the world he has created.. I think the only way I'd like to Robin in Nolanverse would be a few scenes in Batman 4 or so and then spin him off into his own film thereby not be directly involved with Batman
Of course they can do something better than The Dark Knight.
It's mental to think otherwise. Of course they could. It's entirely within their capabilities. They just need to get started, and get the right people on board.
They could actually make a fine movie for a third.
The Dark Knight, as good as it was, had Batman himself take a bit of a back seat and get overshadowed. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, but I'd love to see a third film return to the Batman Begins style, where Bruce goes on another quest to find and question his motives and his life. Make it about Batman.
I love to see Scarecrow again for round three, this time as someone who has learned from mistakes and is no longer a constant failure.
You could have Talia Al Ghul, looping it back to the first film. Even superpowerred freaks like Poison Ivy and Mr Freeze (seriously!)could be given the Nolan update treatment.
I mean The Joker is an "accident freak" in the comics too, so they removed the freaky accident and caked him in some gruesome makeup, and it didn't do any harm, in fact it made it more interesting to see a different take on it. There's a billion things you could do with Mr Freeze and Ivy, they don't have to be super-powerred or have silly technology in order to work as villains. Only uber-comic-nerds complained about Joker wearring make-up, everyone else embraced the invention as a new take on the tried and true.
I don't think people are thinking outside the box enough when it comes to the possibilities of established villains in this new Batman world. We know that Nolan likes to take the character, the seesnce, and just the fundamental parts of their look and iconography, and mould it into something new.
