Walking Dead:

I'm loving it, but there's something missing.  I can't put my finger on it, but the tone is just off somehow.  There's an ambience in the books that's just not there, and I do wish they'd stick to the general plot a little more as it appeared in the books.  If getting new writers will help, then let's do that.  Maybe Darabont hasn't gotten the tone he wanted either, and as a huge fan of the series, I'm for any change that will better adhere to the comics, because they're pretty much flawless zombie awesomeness.

scytheofluna, but in the wake of Reeve's paralysis there had been the Lois & Clark  TV show and Smallville so Superman Returns felt safe. If Reeve's had died the day of his accident I don't think we'd have those shows and such progression with the Superman franchise.

Plus, Nolan spefically likes to distinguish Batman Begins and TDK as their own movies outright and doesn't think of sequels until after the movies are made. The Joker story arc is over... I don't even think if Ledger had lived that the Joker should be in TDKR because to what purpose would he serve? He's already left an undelible mark on Batman and Gotham City, what's there to prove? If the Joker had simply busted out of Arkham in the new movie wouldn't that diminish Gotham City's victory in TDK?

Trust me, once Avengers comes out, and its good, (gotta add that), no one will care about the Batman and Superman movie that may or may not happen, possibly in the next year or more, if we cross our fingers hard enough. Same with the Justice League movie. Why, because(no offense to Nolan of course), Marvel studios  actually knows what they're doing. Apart from X-men first class and Ghost Rider 2, that is.

scy, sure the ambience/tone of the book is not just that part that's left up to the imagination even with a graphic novel? I haven't read the books but most people that I know that have seem to think they've gotten it down fairly well aside from the new gripe about the CDC and general plot variation.

I wouldn't mind the Ledger inclusion if it doesn''t look tacked on and out of place

As for what to do next with Bats? I want to see a real comic book movie. No disrespect to Nolan and his films which are fabulous (and I am sure DKR will be too). But I want to see a full on, in your face blockbuster and not limited by wanting it to be hyper realistic. IMO, you can include the fantastical villains and still create a very human and poignant story

Dark Knight rises- Bringing ledger back can be done. Horror fans may note that an old episode of Tales from the crypt featured Humphrey bogart as the main charachter in one of its episodes. I cant remember what the episode was called but i do know that John LIthgow was in it and the story played out really well. So bringing back Heath would not be intirely impossible.

The Walking dead-I really think messing with a tried and true formula would be rather risky but having writers on board with new ideas on how to do certain scenes may work as long as they keep the core of the writers along with its comic book creator counter part- being faithful to the source material is the name of the game

Green Hornet: This looks great! I love the one-inch-punch homage to Bruce Lee. I know it's a Wing Chun move, but Bruce Lee made it popular. Did he do it on the original Green Hornet show?

Batman 3: I would be perfectly content with a Joker cameo portrayed about another actor if Bats walks down an Arkham hallway and we see a pale, painted, and scarred face in a dimly lit padded cell. Maybe even give him a line or two.

XFC: I agree with jfdavis in that this is teetering between awesome and a huge disappointment. I hope it leans towards the former unlike Tekken or the Chun Li movie.

GR2: I was surprised when I heard they were making another Ghost Rider movie. The only thing good about the first one was Eva Mendes.

If Heath was my dad, brother, or uncle, I could see no greater tribute to him extending his life in something that he loved.

#1 - Give his daughter money for his work.

#2 - Use the footage and end with the Joker in a dark corner of a cell and have him say one last amazing line. Possibly constructed out of previous material of computer edited.

Yeah, the whole point of the Nolan trilogy in my eyes was to construct Gotham in a believable sense, and to show us that it could work in the real world...

Other super-heroes would ruin that sense of realism, so once this film is done, Batman needs to be rebooted and what better way than to include him in the Superman villain, even if only in passing, again using the Arkham Asylum game costume in some news footage from Gotham, maybe...

Yeah a Joker cameo of sorts as he's being transfered under sedation to a new wing to meet his new shrink... Dr. Quinzell

With this new Tron tech face thing I wonder if it's going to be like that?  I bet that will be the new "it" problem for movies.  

Can't wait for GR, I wish they used the first GR in the movie instead of Cage however.

I finally DVR'd the Walking dead for repeats, I guess I have to see what the hubbub is about.  Only 6 eps anyways.
