A few references to Metropolis, Smallville or the Daily Planet in The Dark Knight would be pretty cool. Just like the Gotham clock in Perry white's office or the mention of Gotham on tv in SR.

There will be a sequel to both films but how the first impacted the general public will influence whether they go to see them. I'm betting that Nolan's Batman franchise will have more 'legs'. But then, that's just my opinion. It was definitely a more cohesive film and more respectful of source.
If they keep making the toys like that then they will be wasting time and losing money

...Because it would be like Michael Corleone (of the Godfather Trilogy) inter-acting with the Planet of the Apes storyline

it's all about balance... in the comics world, EVERYTHING can be merged whether it proves to be a good or bad combination. In films, it's risky.

Especially, one minute, Batman is facing a horrendous task of keeping the Joker locked up, while in a crossover with Superman, it would be easy for him to join forces with Superman to defeat a godlike entity like DARKSEID

it's all about balance.

Can you not see the gap between the atmosphere of Nolan's serious gritty world of Batman & Singer's campy, sci-fi soap opera Superman?

I would say that there is no conceivable way that Singer's 'Superman' could work in Nolan's dark and gritty world of 'Batman'.

It would take a lot of tweaking of 'Singerman' to make the two function in the same script.

*yawn*

I'd wish you geek SR naysayers would just shut up about how SR is bad compared to the flawless BB. We're talking about a comment Chris Nolan made, not another thread about how SR sucks. [/sarcasm]

Ahem, back to the topic at hand. I think that was Nolan speak for "no comment" or "this is out of my hands". It's not that hard to interpret it... honestly, the only way Nolan is going to give an opinion about SR (that is, if he even saw it) is if someone asked him what he thought about it.

That said, I think that with the right script and the right director (provided that the writers from BB and SR work on the screenplay), I think a World's Finest film could work out well.

I'd rather not have a World's Finest. I don't think Supes and Bats would interact so well after Nolan's more toned down approach to Batman. But maybe in the distant, distant future.....

I don't think Nonlan means any ill towards Superman. Perhaps he doesn't want his version of Batman meeting up with Superman.

As any professional filmmaker would say the same...

Seeing as Nolan is employed by the same company as Singer is who produced both superhero movies, Nolan had no choice but to dodge the question. He says it sucks, then everyone looks at him like he's unprofessional, he says it's good then he knows he's lying through his teeth.

And how can you be so sure he hated the movie? Just because he dodged the question doesn't mean he hated it.

Nolan is not big on CGI or crappy storyline. Now be realistic here Nolan is the guy who hates sci-fi bullcrap of course he didn't liked superman returns if Nolan wouldn't even dare put clayface into the Batman Begins trilogy what makes you think he wants his Batman to team up with an alien that has super powers.

BATMAN BEGINS IS BASED ON REALISM

SUPERMAN RETURNS IS BASED ON SCI-FI

What would happened if you add the both up?

You would probably get the X-files.

Hes dodging the question because if they put the two characters together its nothing but a vague idea now that will still take some years to get made.

He held a screening of Bladerunner to his staff and said that is what he was shooting for with Begins.

I think you're confusing the types of films Nolan wants to make with the type he likes to watch.

As a screenwriter and director, I love making realistic dramas infused with comedy. But as an audience member, I love sci-fi, fantasy, screwball comedy, horror and film noir.

Just because Nolan wouldn't make a sci-fi film doesn't mean he would hate watching sci-fi. Case in point, the fact that he loves Bladerunner.

I can't believe this never got closed.

Well I guess it's not relevant anymore if in fact singer's doing another rehash.

Default Batman Begins and Incredible Hulk impact on MOS

Well fans just LOVE to compare recent movies to SR/future MOS sequel movie.

I'd have to say right now as an observer between a reboot and sequel, if TDK does better at the BO than BB (which I expect) the reboot argument over SR gets put off balance.

TIH did not revitalize the Hulk franchise. The sequel to BB is looking to do bigger numbers. So hmmm... a sequel cost LESS and makes MORE. Bring on MOS


If ANY Superman movie happens I'm thinking sequel.

Yes but TDK is a squeal to BB which was a reboot. I feel that SR should have been a totally reboot in the first place and not some kind of half ass sequel to STM.

BB as a whole was much much much more loved than SR so your little theory fails. Beside as stated above Begins was a reboot of a failed franchise much like Superman is.
