Oh yea, I forgot he's helping with Superman too. Don't think you think it's a bit more likely with them behind two of the members?
AFAIK, they are and always have been behind ALL the DC properties.  Warner Bros. owns DC Comics, so they've always had their own studio.

But again, Nolan thinks that both Batman and Superman should be independent of all other heroes, no team-ups/crossovers.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I think Warner Brothers should hire Nolan to run all their comic book properties. He seems to be the ONLY PERSON IN THE UNIVERSE OTHER THAN ME who understands that putting more Superheroes in a movie dilutes the quality because different heroes are designed to serve different story-telling purposes and function in universes with different rules.

I liked The Dark Knight, but I didn't think it was absolutely amazingly phenominally insanely crap-your-pants-over-it brilliant like everyone else did.  In my opinion, Dark Knight has "The Crow factor."  Everyone crapped their pants over The Crow when it came out because Brandon Lee died and then everyone did it when Heath Ledger died.  Only difference is that I REALLY love The Crow.  I actually do think it's briliant. 

And, am I the only one who finds Christian Bale totally annoying?  I find his Bruce Wayne to be very fake.  I don't feel any sympathy for him, but I find his portrayal rather superficial and generic.  As Batman, he's OK, but the voice really has to go.  The best actor portraying a superhero in the past ten years has to go to Brandon Routh in Superman Returns in my opinion. 
Now that Obama has closed Gitmo, when will he turn his attention to the abuses and torturing of the onions that are used to make the angry whopper?

Characters:

What about Harley Quinn?

Nolan has stated already that the Joker will not be in a third film. So it makes HQ sorta pointless.

Also, it should be noted that Nolan confirms the third film will be the end of the story. Not a continuing arc.

which has me thinking about what the story could be...blog material I am thinking. gothamcitytimes.blogspot.com (nothing up yet, but I'll post one soon).

There are a ton of rumors stating that The Riddler is indeed the villain for the next film, and that Nolan is planning on casting Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the Riddler. While The Riddler would seem like a very obvious choice, I really would like to see a lesser known villain take the reigns, and I'm talking about



Black Mask

I think he would be perfect for the film. Black Mask is known for his brutal torture techniques, which he does on the faces of people. He also hits his enemies the hardest by going after family and friends. He was Bruce Wayne's childhood foe in the comics.

I could see Ray Liotta, Daniel Day Lewis or Jason Isaacs in this role.

Further possible evidence that Nolan is emulating Joss Whedon and building his own actor's harem.

I'm not a big fan of hers, so I'm hoping this isn't true. Plus, I don't really have any interest in Catwoman being in the movie.

She would be awesome as a creepy catwoman that is also the love of bruce wayns life.


Bruce Wayne will also now be played by Leo DeCaprio, and Robin will be Joseph Gordon Levitt. It will be called Batception.

I love Chris Nolan but his obsession with never making a so-so movie is gonna ruin a franchise that I really want continued, the very classy "only 3 movies cause its a story that will end" thing does not satisfy comic book fans at all, hand over the franchise if you don't wanna be the one that makes the so-so movies -which probably wouldn't be bad except in Nolan's head- but don't condemn it to end.
Superhero movie franchises are not meant to end with a story end, they're meant to end when a sequel bums out really bad.

The Dark Night...so-so? I'm not going to claim it's the best movie of all time, but it was a truly great film and a great direction for that franchise to head. Bring on another!

Who said anything about ending a franchise? Only DC Comics could possibly have that power, Nolan certainly doesn't. He's just ending his film series after 3, which seems perfectly sensible. Then let someone start a new series later on, rather than having his Batman universe stretched out and potentially ruined by someone else.

And regarding potential villains, I'm amazed at how fussy everyone is being. Whatever villains Nolan chooses to use, he'll adapt them to fit in with the universe he has created. If any characters like Catwoman or even Robin are announced, just wait to see what they're actually friggin' like instead of making assumptions.

Oh you know WB won't do more live action Batman movies without Chris Nolan, they know nothing is gonna be as good, unless by some mircale Tim Burton comes back.
