The Dark Knight Write a plot for "The Dark Knight".

sounds good MaskedMan!

This question is for everybody...Wasn't there talk about the League of Assassians returning and seeking revenge or something? I just remembered hearing something about that several months ago.

Kind of like what was said above, only a few differences:

Sal Maroni and Rupert Thorne are vying for control of Falcone's old turf. At first, it looks like it will be evenly split between the two and it will be done peacefully, but then murders happen on both sides.

A mob war breaks out in Gotham City. Meanwhile, there is also a serial killer on the loose calling himself the Joker. Batman has been searching for him for months, but the new mob war has to take prioity because many lives are being lost. Realizing that he can't search for Joker and stop a mob war by himself, he gets Gordon, and the new D.A Dent to help him. They decide that the best way to stop the gang war is by cutting them off from their weapons supplier. Batman goes to find out who is supplying each gang.

Meanwhile, Bruce is so pre-occupied with all the things he has to do as Batman that he almost completely neglects his duties at Wayne Enterprises. Instead of going in to work, he just goes back down to the cave to investigate some more. ALfred starts notcing that when he is in teh cave, he is almost a completely different person, and that persona is starting to show in teh manor as well. Alfred tries to remind Batman that Bruce is just as big a part of his life as Batman is, but Bruce waves him off. Fox is covering for Bruce at the company, but Earle comes back trying to make a hostile takeover of the company with Roman Sionis backing him.

Batman finds out that a british arms dealer named Cobblepot is backing both gangs and thinks that he might've started the gang war by killing people on both sides since he would directly profit from the war. He tracks down Penguin to his base at the docks and goes undercover working there as a new dock hand named "Matches Malone" he sets up listening devices everywhere and eventually finds out that there is going to be a big arms deal made to the Maroni gang. It'll take place in teh one area where no cops go: the Narrows, at the abandoned mental institution: Arkham.

Bats tells this to Dent and Gordon, but both say there is no way Loeb will alllow for police to go there. Dent says that it won't stop him, and Gordon agrees that he will go too, and that he will try and find some honest cops to tag along. Bats shows them a lay out of Arkham and whee they should go. He lets them know that while they won't see him, he'll be there.

At Arkham, we see Harvey, Gordon, and large detective name Bullock, and a young cop named Montoya that looks scarred out of her wits. They enter Arkhamand find the area where the transfer will be made. They wait for the gang and Penguin to show. Penguin finally shows up but instead of Maroni, Thorne shows up instead. Penguin is flustered, but is trying to wave it off when Maroni's gang comes in also. Both gangs are at gunpoint now and there is utter chaos. Penguin is asking Thorne how he knew to come here, Thorne sayign he was invited, Maroni asking Penguin if he was dealing to both gangs and why Penguin invited both gangs. At this last question Penguin looks confused and says he though coming here was Maroni's idea.

At this point we hear laughter echoing throughout the gigantic room. Gunfire erupts and maroni's, thorne's, and penguin's men start to go down. Eventually it stops and Joker walks in. He welcomes the crime lords to his humble abode. He tells them that inviting them all here was his idea. He wants to let them know that while they are fighting over gotham, the Narrows is his turf. He says that since everybody is already crazy from fear gas, that this is practically his Candy Land. And there is no better place than Arkham to be his castle.

At seeing Joker, Dent can't wait any longer and rushes in to arrest the crime lords and the Serial killer. Gordon, Bullock, and Montoya follow and a new fight ensues between the cops, the rest of the mafias men that aren't dead, and the Joker's men. Joker watches on amused at the few cops that are here to arrest them, when Batman crashes through the window to help them out. Joker is instantly angry that Batman had a better entrance than him, and tells his henchman to fall back. Maroni, Penguin, and Joer all manage to escape in different ways witgh some of their men, but Thorne is captured.

Since one of the biggest crime lords was captured, it became a huge bust on all the cops and Dent's parts. Dent was instantly catapulted to fame in Gotham, and vowed that he will bring down Maroni also, and the Joker.

It's now Christmas time and we see that neither Maroni or Joker have been caught. Batman is spending even more time trying to find out who the Joker is and his motives for killing people, but still has no luck. One day, Dent comes home and finds Joker in his living room decorating the tree with his wife Gilda tied up next to him. Dent becomes enraged and attacks the Joker, but Joker just laughs it off and grabs a lamp froma nearby table and starts to get the upper hand in the fight. Joker starts beating Dent mercilessly while singing Christmas Carols. Eventually he stops and Dent is a bloody mess. he asks him one question: Who's Batman? Dent says Joker can rot in hell. Joker just laughs hysterically at this and then walks over to Gilda and smashes the lamp in her face." Who is Batman?" he asks Dent again, and Dent pleads with Joker to stop. He tells him he doesn't know who he is, he just meets with him sometimes. Joker walks over to Dent again looking very angry. "Dammit, you weren't supposed to cave that early! I wanted to have more fun!' At this he hits dent hard and knocks him out.

Dent wakes up in the hospital and sees Gilda (with some stitches on her face) sitting next to him. Dent asks if she's ok and she nods with tears in her eyes. Dent gets extremely angry, and tries getting up, but Gilda just hugs him and doesn't let go until he has calmed down. When he is finally calm, she tells him "He stole all the presents too". dent jsut closes his eyes and hugs her.


* I have a general idea of what happens next, but I am still fleshing it out. I'll post it later*


Shame on all you posters who either didn't read this plot summary or didn't bother to comment.

These are some really well developed ideas. Excellent.:up:

Thanks. :)

I remember something like that, back when Rachel Weiez was rumored to play Talia.
 
Hmmm.I'm wondering if the next movie will have anything to do with Ra's al Ghul at all. Doesn't seem like there's be any room for him in this one.
 
Sounded good! I wish that maybe IMDB might end up right!
 
I think a hint to him at the end of it would be fantastic.

haha...glad you liked it...thanks for the vote of confidence. I'll probably finish the other half later today or tomorrow :)
 
How much arrivals are there in gotham???
 
okay here goes:

Batman travels to Toyko to investigate a band of street races who "drift" and so Batman tricks out the batmobile with 20" rims and supercharged spoilers to claim his dignity.

I call it Batman And The Furious
 
The're both based on BOF reports. The second one sounds like it was written by a child.
 
They way IMBD make it sound the movie seems really crowded.
 
Wait, i thought Harvey Dent was always Anit-Batman, and was always stressing that Gotham doesn't need a vigilante?

LOL!!!!! How about just "Bats and the Furious".
 
Ok, my basic plot outline:

Sal Maroni and Rupert Thorne have moved into Gotham after the demise of Carmine Falcone. Both are a little hesitant though to take over Gotham after hearing stories and tall tales about a mysterious Bat-creature, half-man and half-bat that terrorizes the skies and the streets.

However, both are fighting for territory and turf like two pitbulls over a scrap of meat. They're both being funded by a British armsdealer named Oswald Cobblepot who is a short, stout, and pudgy man who waddles and quacks like a penguin. He also has webbed-hands and a bird-like nose, whom if anyone stares at his sightly features, he'll shoot them dead in his tracks with his semi-automatic umbrella. Little does the Maronis and Thornes know Penguin's intentions and loyalty lie with someone else...a man whom has driven Batman "batty" for months now.

Gordon is near-shy to closing the case of The Joker, but Batman tells him again and again he'll find him no matter what.

We get a backstory explanation of how Joker came to be, but he mostly lies hidden in the shadows, along with Penguin like how the villains were portrayed in "Begins."

Sal Maroni and Rupert Thorne and their rivalry are concentrated on alot more.

While all this is going on... Bruce Wayne is trying to reestablish his company with his friend Lucius Fox. Rachel Dawes has moved on and out of his life and a new D.A. has come to Gotham City, named Harvey Dent, who plans to clean up Gotham City once and for all, with or without a Batman to help him.

See, when we meet Dent I believe like Gordon was in "Begins" he'll be skeptical of aligning himself with a masked vigilante. Till movie's end he'll definitely align himself with Batman and him, Gordon, and Batman will carry on a long-lived partnership till movie 3 where Dent is sprayed in the face and becomes Two-Face.

I like alot of what kytrigger had, but I think this part he wrote about: " Meanwhile, Bruce is so pre-occupied with all the things he has to do as Batman that he almost completely neglects his duties at Wayne Enterprises. Instead of going in to work, he just goes back down to the cave to investigate some more. ALfred starts notcing that when he is in teh cave, he is almost a completely different person, and that persona is starting to show in teh manor as well. Alfred tries to remind Batman that Bruce is just as big a part of his life as Batman is, but Bruce waves him off. Fox is covering for Bruce at the company, but Earle comes back trying to make a hostile takeover of the company with Roman Sionis backing him."- Works very well.

Along with: I loved the ending you made up, but I think if the Joker were to abuse Dent's wife Gilda, or if he were to torture, rape, and kill Gordon's wife that'd be the one thing to set both of them off and really wanting to take down The Joker any means necessary. If you went with either or storyline, it'd make Batman be tested whether he should bring Joker to justice, beat him to a bloody pulp, or kill the sick twisted bastard.

Later, he'd realize killing him would not be the answer, but a lifetime being held in Arkyum would be a more fitting punishment. Of course by movie 3, he'd get out, and then Dent would come after him for disfiguring his face and for abusing Gilda right in front of his eyes when he could've helped her or saved her. :batman:


Now as for other characters in the movie:

-At the end I'd love to see Harley Quinn visiting Joker and then fading to black with her saying, "Aww...puddin' " or something like that.

- Bullock and Montoya would be nice to bring into this movie either with a cameo or not.

-Killer Croc would be a great henchman for Penguin. Think about it both are deformed human beings so it'd make sense with them working together.

-At the end of the film also I'd love to see Batman and Gordon on the rooftop like "Begins" and Gordon telling Batman about a female cat burgular who has a thing for S&M, whips, and latex bodysuits or maybe about a serial killer/mad bomber who loves to leave riddles. If you had that it'd be geektastic.

Anywho...that's my plot idea. You can take it or leave it.

I like a lot of your ideas. I only did the first half of my part, and the reason I ultimately end up having Joker beat Gilda a little bit is to set up the Two-Face vs. Joker confrontation in the third film like you addressed. Beating Gilda and scarring him will make Joker hTwo-Face's worst enemy and I woul dlove for them to go to "war" in the third film. TDK will be a gang war, while the third film will be a freak war.

Also, I like having Dent go overboard and really want ot kill Joker for hurting Gilda, and having Gordon be the voice of reason. Trying to show both Dent and Bats that justice still needs to be served and maybe even having him stop Dent from actually killing Joker, like talking him down form it. He's kept Bats from killing Joker and others plenty of times in the comics it seems, and I think it would be perfect characterization, AND it would bring his character to the forefront a little, so all of the non bat-fans can really know how important he truly is to the Bat mythos.

Well, either or route if it's Dent's wife that gets abused, or if it's Joker killing Gordon's wife, I think Alfred should play a part in choosing what Bruce should do. After all, Alfred is pretty much Bruce's father figure and in "Begins" he didn't want Bruce to forget who he was, or who his parents were. Here I'm sure Alfred would try to convince Bruce that if he committed murder he'd lose his soul and who he was and his father and mother would never forgive him.
 
My very own plot for The Dark knight would be: A seriel killer who uses the theatrics to kill and also leaves a joker card to each of his victims is on a killing spree in gotham city. No one knows who he is all they know is that he leaves a joker card and it's up to Batman to stop him. In this psychological action packed cat and mouse game while Batman is on the joker's tale, A legendary Crime Boss has returned to gotham city to claim his city once and for all. Things become more complicated when a mysterious woman comes into bruce wayne's life this would be bruce wayne's new love interest she doesn't reveal herself that she is ras al ghul daughter until the end of the movie. She seeks veangence agaisnt the bat who murder her father. Harvey Dent struggles with his duality problem everyone can clearly see how messed up Harvey Truly is. Black Mask and the Richard Earle forms an alliance to take down wayne enterprise but in the process they scarred Harvey Dent. By the end of the film there will be a big confrontation between the darkness and the light in gotham city cemetery in other words BATMAN VS JOKER in an epic battle. The main thesis of the film is going to be Batman but in this one I would make Batman struggle with his inner demons he is still on the line of inbalance between good and evil also I would make BruceWayne/Batman's life a living hell he is going to have trouble with dealing with what's all around him both persona (BruceWayne/Batman) will overshadow each other in THE DARK KNIGHT.

2008 THE BAT SHALL RISE ABOVE.

What do you guys think?

Yours was right on the money of what I want to see.
 
Thanx, I hope hollywood would contact me or atleast for jonathan nolan and chris nolan to do something simular to my plot because I'm sure it will please many people and since Nolan is a brilliant director he can turn it into a very sick epic movie that will surpass every single superhero movie that has ever come out. I don't like the fact that batman,jim gordon, and harvey dent is going to team up to take down the joker and there going to have penguin in the dark knight according to david goyer's script summary of the next 2batflicks I think that's kinda of lame that all 3 of them wants to team up to take down the joker. I think it's lame that penguin is going to be in the next one they should just stick with joker and two/face and villains we haven't seen before. I hope to the powers that be that joker isn't going to go on trial for the third batman film that's going to suck ass if they do it like that because it will make it campy despite of joker's appearance (looking normal but sick).

hey, I thought you had some good ideas, but (no offense) I would say, don't get your hopes up for them to contact you or anything. They already know what they are going to do, and if it is like yours, then cool, but if it isn't, I highly doubt they will change it (especially something like completely omitting a character like penguin). Honestly, while this is fun for us to create our own ideas, I highly doubt they will ever read any of our plot outlines and summaries.
 
Lol thanx for the advice but I forgot to mentioned that the last post I posted I was being a little sarcastic but yes it's always cool to dream about it perhaps one day I would make it as a fanfilm or something then again I'm no director I just have a very big vivid imagination.
