Re: What OTHER elements from The Dark Knight Returns could we see?
....and furthermore, DKR is Batman's story ! He owns it, and every panel he appears in. The book is worthy of a film all in its own right that only features a guest appearance by Superman (and like I went crazy on in the last post, is not appropriate for a first meeting film).
However, you might be on to something in terms of the gritty style that Miller used to portray Gotham - that could definitely work.
Miller's Batmobile: Batman needs a tank !
Miller's Batcopter: Batman needs a Russian gunship copter !
Miller's portrayal of Jim Gordon ......probably covered in the Nolanverse TDKR film. Sorry, but after Gary Oldman, there aren't many who could step into Gordon's shoes.
Miller's vision of a Gotham out of control, where crime is rampant.....could work.
Miller's Batman.....not sure if Batfleck could carry off the menace, the obsession, the physicality of the role (certainly not the physique, you'd
need Schwarzenegger for that !)
hey, but great idea for a thread. Peace.
