Better than arrogant douche Jordan. Also, the goofball thing remains to be seen and I don't really know where you're getting that.

I personally think the buzz of Keaton reprising the role of Batman would be HUGE, let alone for the fact that they'd finally be adapting what is arguably one of the best, if not the best, Batman stories ever.
Oh. I read TDKR awhile ago but I guess I forgot his age. Thanks for the correction. And yes, it would be awesome to see Michael Keaton make a big comeback to the Batman Universe. That alone would convince me to watch the movie and even buy it on Blu Ray.

I always liked the idea of telling the story of an older Batman/Bruce Wayne. Whether it's a TDKR film or a Batman Beyond film (once again, yes I know I recommended it before), Michael Keaton could reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/the real Batman in either film. Both the TDKR comics and Batman Beyond presented a much darker Bruce Wayne than we're familiar with, which would fit perfectly with Michael Keaton.

To see Michael Keaton as Batman again would be just be cool.

Totally agree. I don't think, unfortunately, that the chance would ever present itself. I think it's a matter of time before Miller's Dark Knight does get made... but I'm of the mind that none of the people that have portrayed Batman in the past would get the role. That said, I also think it's foolish not to put Keaton in the role.

I love Keaton an all, but he is a year shy of 60 years old, wouldn't that make him to old even for a TDKR version of Batman? And even older when ever production of such movie was to start?

Tell that to Sean Connery who at 74 was still playing action heroes and doing it well ! lol
Keaton is the right man for the DKR, I just wish someone would ask him in an interview about it and get his opinion. It would certainly create enough buzz (his response) that Warner Bros. would at least consider it.
The only way to get at least one more buck from the franchise after Nolan leaves is to get the original Dark Knight, which to many is still the best Batman ever.
I'm pretty sure Keaton would at least be interested since he loved the DKR book and based his performance on it.
If they couldn't get Tim Burton do to another movie or a high quality HBO mini-series (like what they did with Angels In America) they should go to Keaton himself to direct, he knows Batman better than most actors/directors (as proven by what Sam Hamm said in the special features of BR and his interview for a DC Comics book on Batman a few years ago).

Stranger things have happened. But it would damn cool to see Keaton in Dark Knight Returns... I've always hoped they would film it and make it look similar to the way they shot Sin City.

I would want a film noir reboot set in 1940s about a previous Wayne; with flashbacks or just an opening featuring an even earlier Wayne as Batman in the winter of 1888 hunting Jack the Ripper in London.



I want a different kind of Batman after Nolan is finished-- a legacy origin rather than arm chair psychology trying to figure out why someone would dress up as a demon in the night.

To take Batman back to the 40s takes the emphasis off of technology and puts it on a detective story and simpler villains (before the age of terrorists, skin heads, assault rifles, cell phones, etc).

WB would never have Keaton reprise his Batman role on the big screen. I'm don't want to be mean but the guy had his shot at playing the role 20 years ago. Batman, as far as the adaptations go, should continue moving forward.

Never said Campbell was the best choice. But really there are alot of good choices for directors out there, and i really dont see any reason why they couldnt put together a new trilogy based on the darker side of batman, keeping the same actors. Reality is to me, that if they dont continue this batman story we will have to wait awhile before you see batman again. Which is why they might as well keep Bale and tell this story in six parts then leave it alone and then come back and redo it, nobody wants whats coming with the spiderman reboot, i cant wait to see how much backlash that gets.

And Harrison Ford's too old to play Indiana Jones again...

Anything is possible in the movie business. Anything. Don't squash our Keaton-hope for DKR okay?

It won't happen. IJ4 was a sequel to the movie series, and never got a reboot, batman did get a reboot.

All I said was is that Harrison's too old, and that people thought Indy 4 would never happen. It's likely it will never happen. The Lord of the Rings was "never filmable" either. It's the one thing I've learned from working in this industry. Never say never.

It.
Won't.

That's like saying they should film the reboot with SM4, starring tobey.

You might as well proclaim yourself omniscient.

And it's slightly different. DKR is an "elseworlds" tale. They could use Bale, Keaton or Kilmer... doesn't matter.

Actually you're wrong about it... Since it hasn't happened yet. But your guess is more than likely right, though.

I personally don't see The Dark Knight Returns ever getting made into a live action film, however, I do personally think putting Keaton back in the role would make for possibly the best Batman film ever. But I can also admit I'm probably biased as he's still my favorite Batman.

It's funny that you seem to be so sure. I had a discussion about it with Mike Uslan when my employers were in Los Angeles (not long after Zak Snyder professed interest in DKR) and Uslan said it's tricky to do DKR because "You have to have a Batman that people know... someone that has played Batman before... Otherwise the idea of the story, as one film, wouldn't make sense to the non-fans/general movie going public. It's an older Batman coming back, and there's the dilemma." And that's all he would say about it.

Like I said, never say never. We never thought in a million years that we'd make The Hobbit, and yet here we stand.

Some people just need to be right. You can probably bank on the fact that in 6 or 7 years you can say "I told you so."

La-la Land? I'm giving you the other side of your limited view where things are possible. I personally didn't think NZ was going to get The Hobbit because of Ian McKellen. Who wants to see someone else play Gandalf? But it happened regardless, much to our shegrin. And that's the great thing about working in the creative industries... You don't have to work with narrow minded folks.
