    I sure hope there's a new Robin, too! Maybe they can get Schumacher back! :rolleyes

    Eh. I love Duncan Jones's work and I love watching RR when he's in his element, but he just doesn't have the gravitas for the role, IMO. (I felt the same way about Edward Norton in the last Hulk movie.)

    Overall, though, the whole immediate reboot idea is ridiculous, but SO modern Hollywood. Heck, why not have three directors make three different Batman movies at the same time?

    Edit...

    Oh. Hmm. I don't generally check dates on Internet articles either.

    This changes nothing!

    Well, they did actually announce the reboot. And long before April 1st. They announced it around the time that they announced TDKR would be Bale and Nolan's last. No info other than that they would be rebooting, and I think they said it would NOT be in continuity for a Justice League movie, though that logic just doesn't make any sense. Also, last weekend may have changed that.

    Yeah, I think after the Avengers huge haul Warner Bros. is most certainly looking at developing a Justice League movie.......and they will rush it out and it will suck. I have no faith in Warner Bros. when it comes to handling their own properties.

    Well, if they do a JLA flick, it will be cool to see Ryan Reynolds playing both Batman and Green Lantern. Maybe they'll recast Hal Jordan due to the overt failure of an otherwise guaranteed franchise. Moving Reynolds over to their only current successful hero franchise makes perfect sense. Alternatively, they could cast him in every JLA role, even the women, I mean why mess with the formula.

    Doc

    P.S. In the spirit of the thread, Reynolds . . . best Deadpool ever!

    Doesn't Justice League have really crappy offshoots of other super heroes? Like Martian man-eater, plastic man (melts when it gets too hot)...
    No thanks.

    It cannot be a true Justice League film without the Wonder Twins.

    I vote Ryan Reynolds for all DC superheroes. In fact if they make a Justice League movie, RR should play all the roles, including Wonder Woman.

    (now to sit back and wait for someone to make that photo happen if I don't do it myself)

    It's almost a given that Warner will reboot Batman after TDKR, they'd have a really hard time finding a replacement for Nolan and I think that Christian Bale will also be leaving after TDKR and I don't think that Warner wants a repeat of the previous Batman franchise with different directors each doing their own take on Batman, and different actors playing Batman. Plus, with the huge success of The Avengers Warner has to be thinking of rebooting Batman to fit into a possible Justice League movie which wouldn't work very well with the Nolanverse Batman.

    no one has considered that if dkr is a huge hit like the previous movie, im sure warner could throw lots of cash to nolan/bale. anything is possible.

    Although I would like WB to keep the series going with just a different director, I wonder if the way Nolan is concluding his trilogy is forcing a reboot of the series.

    I like Jones' films and I'd love to see what he could potentially do with the franchise, but I'm not really a fan of Reynolds. Doesn't seem brooding enough to be Bats. We don't need another Clooney-style Batman...

    if wb has any bits of smart, looking at current cinema, they can not not do a justice league movie with the different pre movies for every character. its just too obvious what will bring in money
    classic justice league that is, not all the million members

    Well when they do reboot Batman I'll have my fingers crossed for an Arkham City type suit :) along with some mention (atleast an easter egg) that there are some other heroes in the DC universe.

    Something tells me Batman won't survive the climax of TDKR. That being said, I would NOT support Reynolds as the new Batman. At all.

    Who ever takes on the next batman string of movies would probably do best by having a movie where we don't revisit how batman came to be. Maybe a cover of AA would be or AC would be cool. Possibly even a suit that's not rubber and more fabric but maybe that's stretching it.

    :facepalm I suppose I should have worded that differently in the first place. It was a given that they would reboot. They are not going to name the actor though before TDKR comes out. At least, I would hope not.

    That is perfect. The AA suit is a great combination of fabric + armor.

    No idea...it's what is being used for the "adult" version of The Dark Knight, saw pics on Aint it Cool a few days ago. Bane is hands down a complete copy of TDKR and looks amazing. Which makes me think...what's the probability of the costumer for Axel Braun's parodies being an RPF member?

    I like how Nolan introduced John Drake in TDKR. But, I think it would be sweet to see a tough version of Robin similar to the one in Arkham City on the big screen. I saw a YouTube clip of batman forever without some of the goofy overdubbed sound effects and actually it seemed like a much better movie!
