its good to see Fahrenheit is back on Batman.
My personal feelings toward the whole Chris Nolan thing, how long before he too is replaced with someone ?
Darren Aronofsky is the guy I really want to see bring Batman to life, even though Nolan would be awesome, and I want to see his version, but I was really looking forward to seeing the whole Year One thing done.
I don't want the original series continued at all.

I wanted to see what Darren Aronofsky was going to do, and I am soooo disappointed that he is off this project, part of me thinks Nolan will end up being a studio bitch for lack of a better term.
I just really don't see him being very original or creative. I have a bad feeling.
I hope I am wrong.

I used to really want David Fincher, but now it seems like he wouldn't know what to do with Batman. I truly do not know what to say as far as who I would want outside of Nolan and Aronofsky.
Chris Cunningham could work, I know he has been mentioned before about a lot of stuff, but this may be somewhat up his alley.
I don't see Warners letting Batman get too artsy, which is too bad for us.
i think nolan is a suitable replacement. could be alot worse. more than i am sad about the departing of daren aronofsky, i am about abandoment of the year one theme. i thought would have been a perfect way to seperate the new batman from the last four pictures.

I'm intrigued by Goyer's statements that were in the front page story. He said what the movie won't be but didn't exactly say what it will be. I don't know what Nolan's vision is for the film but we could see some good flasback scenes of Bruce when he was younger.

I'm hyped about talk of a new Batman movie and I'm certain that Nolan and Goyer will do it justice because their previous films focus on the darkness that is needed for a film version of the Dark Knight. The darkness is the point that Joel Schumacher misunderstood when he made his films about the Bat. I heard him say that he thought it was stupid that Bruce Wayne was this conflicted man because of some childhood trauma. HELLO!! That's the basis of the whole franchise, that childhood trauma, his parents' murders, that put Wayne on his path. Goyer and Nolan respect the source material which cannot be said for Schumacher so I'm happy if even a casual fanboy creative team is assembled by Warners to finally get the concept of the Bat to the big screen for everyone from purists to skeptics to enjoy.

Please don't start another anti-Schumacher post. Yes, Batman & Robin was horrible and Batman Forever wasn't the "dark" film that so many expected. Get over it.

Sorry about this, but when I read JaLaHo's post, I remembered a Schumacher interview he did about Batman & Robin.
Interviewer: So, are there any more flashback scenes in this movie.
Schumacher: No, no this time. I think it's time that Bruce moved on from that. I mean, his folks have been dead for twenty years now! He should get over it.
I vomited several times after reading that article.
ok so shumachers a shmuck, but you give him more power by even agknowleding his movies. "whats this, they made a batman man and robin movie? impossible. it dosent exsist." simple as that.

My pick: Eric Radomski & Bruce W. Timm
They directed the best Batman movie of all time: Mask of the Phantasm.
While I'm at this I may as well do my whole crew.
Screenplay by Alan Burnett, Paul Dini, Martin Pasko & Michael Reaves
Directed by Eric Radomski & Bruce W. Timm

I feel somewhat like, Chris Nolan may be pushed around a tad by Warners, more so than someone like Darren Aronofsky.
I just look at Insomnia, and I think to myself, this film, is very typical, and just plain well-shot. It seems as if Nolan really just shot the movie to get in Warner's good graces, I just hope that he doesn't fall under some pressure for Batman.

Yea Insomnia was pretty safe and it was *the horror!* a remake wich is below his talent. Nolan will be able to do the detective part of the Batman concept if he has all his hands on it. That`s why I`m not enthousiastic about Goyer writing this: Nolan wrote the brillant Memento himself and he should the same thing with Batman.
But first Nolan will direct a film before Batman wich will take time to develop, so don`t look for Batman before 2006. If ever.
Man, it`s a bummer that Aronovsky is not directing this. It had the possibility of being brilliant and really hardcore. grrrr
By the way, my choice for director: anyone seen the french action movie "Doberman" by Jan Kounen? It`s one of the most badass, harcore, darkest thing I have ever since of the last few years but what what made me think this guy would make a great Batman film is his visual flair and the fact that the characters were larger-than-life like a comic-book(not in a silly kind-of way).

You guys are dorks!
Darren Arrofnosky, is still signed to direct Batman:Year One, Christopher Nolan is directing an altogether different Batman film.
There is also a thrid film being tossed around, "Batman: the Haunting", which has been written, but no director has been chosen.

And you're any better how...? And actualy, I prefer the term geeks, thankyouverymuch.

Acutlaly, as far as I know, Aronofksy is off. Then again it's been so on and off with him and Warner, that can change.
As for "The Haunting", I belive you mean 'The Fightening' with Scarecrow.
As for Nolan, no one knows what he's doing. I personally hope he does Year ONe, but nothing indicates that.
So, as usual, things are going on with Batman with directors maybe in place, but we're not sure what it is that is going on.

As soon as Goyer finishes that script/screenplay/thing, they'll have a movie.
Now comes the part where I relieve you, the little people, of the burden of your failed and useless lives. But remember, as my plastic surgeon always said: if you gotta go, go with a smile.
