wow. That was actually very very good. And imagining Bale as Brucey and Bats...could be really awesome.

Love the pic of Christian Bale from American Psycho; it definitely gives you an idea of what the atmosphere could be with him playing Bruce/Batman.

I just hope they let Nolan go with Goyer's script and don't decide to hire some hack to re-write it and make it an action first movie.

Hard to know what to make of it, since it reads like a Harry Knowles review.

I don't get it. Where are all the jokes? Which superstars are they going to cast as the villains? Where are the hysterical one-liners?

Where are Joel Schumacher & Akiva Goldsman when you them? Goyer, Nolan, and Bale are going to sink this franchise...

i'm disappointed that there is no

if you are going to do an action/adventure movie where the main character dresses in an outlandish costume, then i would cut the film a little slack if they included some fantasy elements like this.

also a little nonpulsed that the film in yet another quasi-origin, although here i bet its more to provide a stronger role/presence for the Alfred character.

I prefer the logo used in the first two movies. But that's just me...

Me likey new logo. Looks very old school with its design (by that, I mean the early days of Batman).

So far it seems cool.
I despised the live action ones. I honestly never got the hype. It wasn't so much that it wasn't Miller's Batman as...whose version of Batman was that? You know, the one that had no psychological problems (or any personality for that matter), couldn't move his neck and fought like a rock em sock em robot with roids.
If this goes down with out the studio suits effing it up, maybe the bad taste (that the animated series didn't get rid of) will be washed away.
(I hope the armored costume is articulated this time.)

Hit me up and I'll give you the PDF. The script is simply amazing. One person made a comment that it sounded like I wrote it. Oh man, I should write a review. The script is beyond good. It all makes sense.


Even the batmobile makes sense. here's a snippet I took a screen capture of the other night for the other thread



Fox shouts over the noise of the engine

FOX: she was built as a bridging vehicle! (MORE)

Shit, I shouldn't have read that. Now the wait's going to be even worse 'til next year. Man that was good. I hope the movie does justice to it.

I have a question though and I'll put it in spoilers:

Spoiler:
So if Liam is playing Ducard, does that mean that in the first half of the movie, he's Ra's Al Ghul in the monastery? And it's Ken Wattanabe that's training Bruce all the while? I got kinda lost during that revelation at the manor.
