Re: How to avoid rehashing elements from the Nolan Trilogy
Will a reboot necessarily go through the same themes?
Can't it just do something new, like a hypothetical TDK4 would do?
Does it have to establish all the defining themes of Batman, when the TDKT is still there for that?
As for what could be new:
-Detective angle, and his obsessive nature. Learning to let go, etc.
-Robin. Learning to trust others. Learning to open up. The importance of being an example, etc.
-sympathy vs his urge to kill. Exploring the ethics of the 'no kill' rule more in depth (Under the Red Hood)
