Re: How to avoid rehashing elements from the Nolan Trilogy
Skimmed through the post's seems like were all in agreement about "no origins", but I want to go one step further.
Hit the ground running...
*Nightwing is in full swing,
*Batman is on his 3rd Robin, Tim Drake,
*Redhood Jason Todd is like a dirty little secret no one talks about.
*Set up and Ra's Al Ghul as villain, Talia, Lazarus pit (Part of Hoods origin and also a set up Damien Wayne for the end of the trilogy).
*No Joker as a villain (For the first few movies at least) Yea I know Redhood and Joker are a package deal, but Hoods origin can be told in flashbacks, reference's etc) lets give the other villains a chance. Where well over due for a creepy well done Riddler. Robin Williams channeling his One Hour Photo performance would be great for that.
*Ramp up the fantasy elements. Batman was getting to realistic for Batman himself. The idea of batman was looking stupid in the ultra realistic Nolan universe.
