    I know this is premature since the Dark Knight Rises hasnt even been completed or knowing who the villain is or what the plot will be but...

    I couldnt help but think....is this the end of Batman?

    Hes a cash cow for WB so I know they wont totally put him to bed but, Will WB try to reboot him yet again like Marvel is trying with Spider-Man?

    Is this what we can expect from now on...a director to take control of a trilogy and then someone else is handed the reigns down the road?

    How long does WB wait to film another Batman..if ever?

    On topic I'd like to see Brad Bird team up with Dini/Timm and see what they come up with.

    So much potential with those guys coming together to do Batman.

    A reboot is inevitable. I think someone from WB confirmed it.

    I myself would love another trilogy. Another self contained story/character arc with its own style, cast and continuity that would look great on my dvd shelf.

    Never understood the blind reboot hate.

    5 years... TOPS!

    Nolan has WB by the balls, this reboot is only happening because he is finished but doesn't want anyone messing with his story once hes gone. Wb have agreed as long as they can ****e his name out with a producer credit for the reboot.

    Simple.

    I can never get enough of Bats and so I'm already exited for a new rebooted trilogy,WB confirmed it and I'm glad cause that's what I wanted since I found out Nolan is done after this one as director&wants his movies to end as a trilogy..Which I agree with him there!!!

    I want the tone of the reboot to be a mix of realistic cop drama and supernatural super crime. Think the Long Halloween.

    A Batman movie written by Nolan and directed by Aronofsky...A fantasy stylized Aronofsky film that uses the logic and storytelling traits of Nolan...pure gold, dammit! :D

    Will Christopher Nolan be a hurdle or a boon for the possibility of a JLA film ?
    He seems rather protective of Batman and probably thinks Justice League is ridiculous

    Yeah I sure can't imagine Nolan agreeing to even produce it!

    Like most Batman fans out there, I don't want an unnecessary origin film like they are doing with the Spider-Man film franchise. I want an established Batman in the reboot. If they have to tell Bruce's origin, I think a neat way to do it is a quick flashback montage, told by Alfred showing Bruce Wayne's parents getting killed, a little traveling the world and training, before returning to Gotham City and becoming Batman.

    I say do it in the opening credits like in TIH or do a flashback of it with Bruce in the Batcave and looks at his parents picture!!

    I'm fine with doing only flashbacks but there has to be enough to show Bruce had a wide variety of crucial/specialized training since he was a kid.

    Most people don't realize Batman mastered everything related to crime fighting and how he did it. One of the biggest weaknesses of Batman Begins IMO.

    1 - Guillermo Del Toro
    2 - David Fincher
    3 - Darren Aronofsky
    4 - Alfonso Cuaron
    5 - Nicolas Winding Refn

    Nice picks.

    I'd replace Del Toro with Brad Bird but other than that I'd love to see any of those directors launch the reboot.

    I'd keep the del toro on the list and bump Refn, I feel his approach would be too similar to nolans, which would just be redundant. a reboot is an oppurtunity to try something new with a concept, why waste it with a rehash of the same exact style as its predecessor? not to say refn isn't a talented directed, I want him to direct wonder woman lol.

    You know what I really want to see?

    Not a Batman who kills (Keaton)
    Not a Batman who bores me to tears (Kilmer)
    Not a Batman who is more camp than straight (Clooney)
    Not a Batman who leaves villains to die (Bale)

    I WANT TO SEE A KEVIN CONROY BATMAN!!! THE PERFECT BATMAN, WHO DOESN'T KILL, WHO IS INTERESTING, WHO IS ALL MAN, WHO IS EVEN A HERO TO THE DAMN BAD GUYS!!!!! :up:

    You mean a "live-action Batman: The Animated series" Batman? Do you know who would be the perfect director for that version?

























    Brad Bird!!!!

    I could definitively go for that.

    Has Brad Bird ever did a dark and grity film before? Because BTAS was dark and grity, but if he can do that kinda Batman than I'm all for it. Was thinking he could do a Batman film that was serious but not as serious as the Burton/Nolan films but not light hearted like the Schumaker ones either.

    We're talking about a live action Brad Bird movie, right?

    I dunno. The direction on MI4 didn't totally blow me away. Not that it was bad in any way, but it didn't make me stop and take notice like Refn, or Abrams or Rian Johnson did.

    Based on Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol I would say that is a definite yes as it was an excellent balance of action, thrills, suspense, humor, and grit.
