    Ok, I started a similar thread on this subject in the past, but the story I wanted to tell took too long to perfect. But I do think it is ready now, and think it is pretty good. This is how I think W.B. should handle the new Batman franchise.

    It's summer 2013. Man of Steel is a big hit, and we are preparing justice league WITHOUT Batman. In his place is Joseph Gordon Lovits TDKR character.

    As WB, from the beginning, the thought process is "where do we go from here"? Regarding Batman. It's been a year since TDKR was released to wide spread acclaim and box office success. Nolan's trilogy set the bar very high. Do we wait 10+ years to bring the character back, or should we move forward sooner?

    The answer is YES. The character is too profitable, too popular, with too much potential to be left on the big screen for very long. We do not want to kill his brand, but it makes no sense to own the rights to the most popular pop culture hero of todays times and just sit on them. So, how do we top Nolan?

    The answer is we don't. We do something different. Nolan emphasized realism. We will try to maintain the realistic aspects of the characters and plots, but the atmosphere will be different, the tone will be different. It will be more comic booky, more in vein of arkham city.

    Spring 2014.

    The executive producer, Excel, along with his boy J.J. Abrams, have an epic, 300 page script written to bring Batman back to the big screen. The decisions are made.

    It is one story told through 2 movies. The first will be a lot of character scenes and set up, and will be heavy oscar bait. The 2nd film will be more action oriented, and fit into the summer well. The films will feature an established Batman.

    More to come, letting this play out the way it would in real life.

    I don't see Bale or JGL even being options for the JL movie.

    I really hope Bale doesn't do a JL movie... I loved his Batman in Nolan's universe and I loved the storyline for Bruce Wayne and I think that Bruce Wayne in Nolan's universe portrayed by Bale is complete, I want a completely new Batman with another story that fits with the JL universe.

    Meh, other than Del Toro, a very unimaginative fan dream movie.

    I think someone tried crawling out of the pit, fell and knocked himself silly.

    There are about two dozen fan casts in the batman reboot thread imagine if every one started their own thread?

    The only difference is he's posting photos with fake headlines.

    Nonsense, this is going somewhere. Will be far more creative than the standard casting thread. Why not just comment on cast & follow along, you will all love the story i have.

    These would be believable and better if you used the punctuation and grammar of an actual news site/journalist. I hardly think Del Toro would say "LOL" in an interview, nor would the interviewer even write that as an insert for laughing.

    This thread.... well, it could do a lot better. Especially that casting... that is a lot of big names to cram into a Batman movie, but I guess WB would want to go big for post-Nolan Batman...

    Why is the actor chosen for Dick Grayson bigger than the actor chosen for Batman?
