If anything it'd be interesting to see ^this happen and see someone like Jean Paul Valley have to get Bane instead of Bruce

 

Edit- I hope to god he won't look like this again

... I mean, there would have to be a lot of villains, played amazingly by amazing actors to come close to DK. Like a Riddler, Catwoman, Bane triple shot or something.

2/3 ain't bad.

 

This is some interesting news I gotta say. Not a huge Hathaway fan myself; think she would've been better playing Rachel. But at least Angelina Jolie doesn't have the part. And Hardy as Bane? I can't even guess as to how Nolan will portray him.

If Nolan decides to go down the Breaking the Bat route with Bane and has him disable Batman, do you think we'll see a film version of Azrael (the person who filled in for Bruce Wayne as Batman while he was recovering)?

I think Hardy'll put on some pounds for the role. Dude's pretty dedicated to his roles.

That would be very cool but to fit him in the movie this movie would have to be over 3 hours probably since this is supposed to be the final movie so it's not like they'd have a sequel to expand that story arc with.

I still think they should've put the Riddler in instead, Jim Carrey did him no justice

I'd definitely like to see the riddler, and clayface was a villain I liked but like bane it is hard to portray him unless you use cgi which I don't really want to see in a Batman film. I'm not pleased with Anne Hathaway playing catwoman either, it doesn't seem right but hopefully this film turns out good as I am a huge batman fan.

And I'm not that worried for Hatheway, considering a large portion of Batman fans said the same thing about Heath Ledger when he was first announced to play The Joker; now people are practically worshipping him.

I can see Anne Hathaway as a good Selena Kyle. I just don't know what to think about her in the Catwoman costume.

In my opinion, she's definitely got the body for it. Her acting is "okay" from what I've seen so far. Tom Hardy on the other hand, perfect addition to the cast. But I'm having some trouble imagining him as Bane. I mean, he'd have to REALLY bulk up to become this huge villain that can easily overpower Batman in a physical fight, unless they decide to go a different route with the Bane character.

 

I also don't think Selina Kyle should be a love interest for Bruce. It seems to me that it would be a bit too much like Batman Returns (which is one of my favorite Bat-flicks). I also can't see Michelle Pfeiffer being topped by Hathaway as Selina.

 

And making it a 3 hour movie might be a good idea, since it will be the end of the trilogy, and just from the title I can predict that Batman overcomes the manhunt and hatred for him and Gotham finally becomes at least a bit safer. Or at least something optimistic will occur. But, I'll gladly sit in the theater for 3 hours to see the ending of Nolan's vision.

 

I'm still confident that Nolan can pull this off. I've yet to see a film from him that I didn't love.

At the end of The Dark Knight crime is completely unorganised in Gotham, thanks to Harvey f*cking up the mob bosses. I think they should take advantage of the situation and make Bane a new crime header, instead of the throwaway hatred he has in the comics. I mean, I can't see Nolan bringing in a huge character like Bane and telling the audience the reason this extremely intelligent, strong villain wants Batman dead is because he dreams of bats too much.

Isn't Tom Hardy a little shorter than Christian Bale?

I think so. He's 5'9 or something.

According to http://www.celebheights.com/, Bale is 6 foot, Hardy is 5'10'' (Ledger was 6'1''). Not much difference but Hardy is the shorter of the two. Maybe they'll make him a crazy mob boss who offers something none of Batman's rivals have so far; the ability to actually compete in hand to hand combat. Once again I direct ya'll the video on the last page.

 

I can actually see Bane crippling Batman like he did in the comic book (breaking his back) etc. Story could go: Gotham is hunting Batman with a task-force lead by Gordon. Bane comes into the scene and becomes de facto leader of Gotham's underworld that has been crippled by Dent and the Joker. Bane catches Batman before Gordon and cripples him. Bane's gang proceeds to reign terror on Gotham and new/old criminals rise (enter Catwoman and Scarecrow). Wayne is laid up in the newly built Wayne Manor (Lucius Fox devises some cover story as to why the billionaire Wayne is no longer seen around town) while he recovers. Gotham cries out for Batman to return, to rise from the ashes. Wayne, once recovered, makes the choice to return and be Gotham's knight. A new improved Batman returns with new gadgets etc and puts an end to Scarecrow and Catwoman's crime spree. Bane proves to be a more difficult adversary but Batman wins out in the end with the help of Commissioner Gordon.

 

Couldn't possibly tell what will happen after that. Maybe the injury plagues Wayne and he decides to hang up his cape, focus on being a "white" knight, use Wayne Enterprises for a good cause or join politics. Maybe Nolan will kill off Wayne.

 

Of course this is all purely speculation. But boy is it fun to think about.

They should dump Catwoman in favor for the Riddler

Well, the screenplay is written and if I'm not mistaken they're beginning production in May, so that's just not going to happen.

 

Just have to accept the fact that the Riddler will not be a part of the Nolan Batman trilogy. Only way I could possibly see him being portrayed is if he was as psychotic and "grungy" as Heath Ledger's Joker was, which would just seem repetitive. They're obviously going with something different this time, but I'm sure they've got a way to make it as realistic as they can to perfectly coincide with the previous two films.

I wonder how Batman fans will handle seeing a Bane that is shorter than Batman himself...

While I'm not so certain of Nolan actually killing off Batman, I really like your white knight idea; I think having Bane atleast injury Batman momentarily would allow Nolan to expose the philanthropic side of Bruce Wayne that he hasn't quite established in his previous films.

Are we gonna get a happy ending here? Bruce and Alfred live happily ever after, exchanging barbs and hanging out with Lucius, getting drunk and testing out crazy experimental toys?

 

Something awful's gotta happen. No? Alfred dies. Yeah.

As for TheJonesy's White Knight idea; I quite like it! Maybe Bruce Wayne will pass on the mantle of Batman to someone else while he focuses on helping Gotham through charitable work.

Well I appreciate it, but I was only commenting on SIKKS66's idea; I want to give credit where credit is due.

Some more speculation and *gasp*; it's about another villain.

 

 

Robin Williams is no stranger to Batman movies. He was offered the role of The Joker back in Tim Burton’s Batman, only to have it taken away when Jack Nicholson expressed interest. Then he was offered the role of The Riddler in Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever, but they ended up giving it to Jim Carrey instead. Since then, Robin Williams has been lobbying to get cast in one of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films — is his wish about to be granted?

 

RW as Strange? Hmm...January 28, 2011 2:22 pm via Twitter for BlackBerryu00ae

BATMAN-ON-FILM

 

The tweet above from BOF’s Jett peaked my interest this morning. Jett has mentioned Robin Williams before on his BOF message board and Facebook page… could he be onto something? The last time Jett dropped hints about possible The Dark Knight Rises villains was when he kept mentioning Bane on his message board, and we know how that turned out. I’ve also heard that Hugo Strange would be appearing in The Dark Knight Rises, though my source was wrong with his casting. So what do you guys think? Wild speculation, or may Jett be onto something here? I hope Robin Williams gets a role no matter what it is. He’s been very vocal about being a Batman fan, and it’s a shame that he’s been burned so many times in the past.

Of course merely speculation at this point, but interesting nonetheless. Makes me wonder that, if it is indeed true that Hugo Strange will appear in the film (played by Robin Williams or not), will Selina Kyle/Catwoman be more of an anti-hero in the film as opposed to just a villain? Because three villains in the third movie makes me think of the disaster that was Spider-Man 3.

 

I do think Robin Williams could be good for the role. He has proven himself to be a great actor when it comes to more serious roles, and he has worked with Nolan before in Insomnia. Since shooting is supposed to begin in May, we'll find out soon enough.

 

It's also been reported that along with New Orleans, Los Angeles and England, shooting will also take place in Romania and India, and the producers are confident that they'll return to Chicago to film, as they've filmed scenes there for the past two films. You can find this news on the same website in the link above.

Anne Hathaway? Really? I love her since The Princess Diaries but can she pull of a sexy Catwoman? I think not.

 

And Hardy as Bane? Oh f*ck yes! Nolan really love re-using his previous actors.

Pulling off sexy? Yes, she can. She seems a little fuller though unless she has recently lost weight and I haven't noticed.

Well according to Wally Pfister, cinematographer of just about all of Nolan's films, Anne Hathaway looked "phenomenal in the wardrobe" during a screen test.

 

 

The Kevin and Josh Movie Show interviewed Christopher Nolan’s cinematographer, Wally Pfister this past weekend. Bleeding Cool’s Brendon Connelly also joined in on the interview which helped turn it’s focus to The Dark Knight Rises.

 

    • Pfister said that he was recently in New York scouting locations for The Dark Knight Rises with Christopher Nolan.

 

    • Pfister has read the script and said it surpasses The Dark Knight with The Dark Knight Rises making it “the perfect trilogy”.

 

    • Pfister was asked if he shot Anne Hathaway’s screentest for Catwoman, and he answered “yes”, adding “she looks phenomenal in the wardrobe”.

 

If there was any doubt that Hathaway would just be playing Selina Kyle and not Catwman, don’t worry. When Pfister was asked to clarify if the “wardrobe” was the cat-suit, he replied “I can’t really say, but I definitely want to be around next year…”.

EDIT: Joseph Gordon-Levitt is reportedly in talks to join the cast of TDKR.

 

Deadline is reporting that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks to reunite with Christopher Nolan in The Dark Knight Rises. Gordon-Levitt starred in Nolan’s summer blockbuster Inception last year alongside Tom Hardy, who will be playing Bane. Deadline broke the news that Tom Hardy was cast back in October of last year, could Joseph Gordon-Levitt be next? We know he won’t be playing The Riddler…who do you think he’ll play, if cast?

"The perfect trilogy" is a bold claim. Hope it's true.

I don't see a problem with it, really. You could say half the cast of Inception was from Batman Begins (Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy, Michael Caine). Michael Caine of course will be returning, but I highly doubt Cillian Murphy will be reprising Jonathon Crane/Scarecrow as he was captured at the beginning of TDK and Ken Watanabe's "Ra's al Ghul" is dead. So, Nolan brings in Tom Hardy and hopefully Gordon-Levitt. They're both solid actors with bright futures ahead of them. Besides, Gordon-Levitt is still "in talks". He hasn't been 100% confirmed as of yet. And if he is cast, what type of role do you see him getting? A cop? Gotham's next DA since Dent and Rachel are dead?

 

 

Anywho, some news on filming locations in the Detroit area.

 

There has been a lot of buzz surrounding where The Dark Knight Rises will film. Recently, Detroit made the news as a possible replacement for Chicago, which was used in both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Today there’s evidence that Warner Bros. has been scouting locations in Detroit. The following quote comes from Michigan State Senator, Rick Jones:

 

    A film company is investigating Grand Ledge for filming a new Batman movie. They looked at Fitzgerald Park, The Grand Ledge water treatment plant, and the underground vault area.

 

It’s unclear if the scouting was done by Christopher Nolan himself, or “people on the large payroll at Warner Bros”, as Geoff Boucher of Hero Complex would say. New Orleans made the news after Warner Bros. scouted locations for Nolan this past fall, however Nolan decided not to pursue that location. Boucher summed it up best in a comment to one of the New Orleans stories here on Batman-News.com:

 

    Warner Bros is interested in keeping Chris Nolan happy at this point and I have no doubt that people on the very large payroll of Warners go around all the time and try to line up options for him. But really any “they” that was interested in New Orleans isn’t the “they” that makes decisions on this movie.

 

We know Nolan has been searching all over the world for the perfect place to film The Dark Knight Rises, we’ll find out soon if Detroit was lucky enough to make the official cut.

Batman, and Robin?

 

 

Grand Ledge is no Gotham City. That may not stop the latest Batman sequel from coming to the community.

 

According to Eaton County and Grand Ledge officials who didn't want to be identified due to confidentiality agreements, production crews from "The Dark Knight Rises" scouted locations in Grand Ledge's Fitzgerald Park last week.

 

They looked at the Ledges as well as a water treatment plant located inside the park. Sources say the area is being considered as a hideout for Batman sidekick Robin.

 

State senator Rick Jones told WILX Friday that he would like to maintain or adjust but not eliminate the Michigan film tax credit, likely one of the draws for productions like "The Dark Knight Rises". The credit can give filmmakers up to a 42% tax credit, but is one of many tax cuts that may be on the chopping block in the next budget.

 

Grand Ledge is no stranger to the move business. Fitzgerald Park was the site of filming for the still-unreleased remake of Red Dawn in 2009.
