    Sorry if this has been posted already,and there's probably nothing much in here we don't already know,but I thought I'd post some scans from the latest issue of Wizard about what they're saying about the Begins Sequal.




    They also did a poll on what readers thought which Batman story should influence the sequal.The results were as follows:

    The Killing Joke: 41%
    The Long Halloween: 26%
    Arkham Asylum: 10%
    Original story: 7%
    Batman Dark Detective: 5%
    Batman the Cult: 3%

    There was other little articles like there's no plans to do a Batman/Superman crossover movie.Katie Holmes may still return.And although Nolan and Goyer are not officially returning for the sequal,they both want to return.

    Too bad Wizard did not have anyhting new to report... but we all knew that. It is good though that the sequal is getting some press, attention is not a bad thing.

    Spider-Freddie is not gonna like Bale's comment on Robin, since he denies the existence of anything said by anyone involved with "Batman Begins" that is anti-Robin.

    As for the article, fun read, even if there is nothing new there. I'm a bit disappointed that Batman Begins seems set to be 2009 rather than 2008. But on the other hand, it's cool that the majority of people want to see something like "The Killing Joke".

    2009 release? Hoffman linked to the Two-Face role? I knew there was a reason I stopped buying Wizard.

    Dont think it will be released in 2009. There reasons for this:

    1. SR sequel is going to be released in 2009, so WB cant put 2 their main movie franchises in one-two months.

    2. The production of Prestige have already started.

    3. If Nolan start shooting BB2 only in 2008, WB will choose another director, what is bad. We dont need Batman franchise from 90s.

    4. Nolan is going to come back for BB sequels, as he has already said.

    Yeah, this is the first time that I heard such thing.
    Nice reading though, even if there's nothing really new. Thanks for posting this.
    About Robin, all I can say is that I'm glad that we have Nolan now. :)

    :batman: GrammarBatGirl: Sequel is spelled with an 'E'.

    Back on topic - as hard as it is to wait for anticipated sequels (I've been waiting for Spidey 3 since Spider-Man 2 came out), sometimes it's more profitable. The longer the wait, the sweeter the payoff when it comes out.

    Besides, I can understand why Nolan would not want to be pigeonholed as the "Batman director". He wants to spread out his repertoire a little. Plus, The Prestige, about fighting magicians, sounds pretty cool.

    Ock - we've had some problems with Wizard before, they don't like it when people scan their mag and pass it around the net. Sorry.

    Yah, there is something strange.

    * BB2 is going to be released in 2009 (WHAT??? 4 years???)
    * Nolan have a rest (as I know he is making Prestige now)
    * Dasting Hoffman as Harvey Dent??? (he is good actor, but not for this role)

    Why don't they check BOF or SHH for source instead of making stupid news?

    Lazy journalism. Wizard is notorious for it.

    Because Wizard movie news is ALWAYS one of the following: A) out of date, or B) entirely false.

    As usual, Wizard hypes up that they have news and it's all complete speculation and turned down questions. That magazine sucks.

    then they must be mixing up their rumors (hearing he was suggested for Penguin and thinking Harvey). There's no way PSH could play Dent, he's not right for the part at all.

    Indeed, that must have happend. I agree with Hoffman for Cobblepot (though I think Hoskins is the ideal choice), but imagining him as Harvey is something I can't see vividly. Wizard is mostly great for reading what's coming up in comics, along with interviews with certain writers and artists which is why I buy it. But when it comes to movie news, they're always one or two steps behind.
