Re: Predictions for the next Batman movie
I want to see a bit more of an increase in the Detective side. That's one part that we've unfortunately not really seen in the live-action films. In regards to the fantastical approach, I'm mixed on it. The only tone where I think it could work is if it's in a similar vein to the Arkham series. There's a sense of heightened reality with that series with room for the fantastical. It really works.
I think it's also time for Robin to make his return IMO. It's a tricky thing to manage but if they really focus on the father figure aspect of their relationship, then we may have something special that could work. I think someone like Black Mask whose a mix between both the mob and the freaks would be an interesting fit for the film. And yeah, start it off with Batman being active for at least 2-3 years. They should also keep the story focused on Bruce, then Robin.
