Yeah, sorry for the nonsensical free-associative rant about Hush. I just think he neatly encapsulates everything that's wrong with noughties comics. Everything is DARK. Everything has a PAST. It's emotional torture porn. There's no flair for imagery, there's no vaudeville. I accept that Batman is the gritty, realist superhero, but that's no excuse for making superhero comics BORING. Jeph Loeb (the creator of Hush) isn't the worst at all, it permeates most of the business. (Although I see more interesting and imaginative stories happening now; I think the worst crap is over.) Even the otherwise-trustworthy Grant Morrison went in that direction with Batman: R.I.P - although the sheer imagination overload of that story makes it better than the generic shock value crap.
So it's settled then! Someone get Nolan on the phone!
We want a dark, gritty and sombre Dick Grayson!
Although I have to admit, as an alter persona, I like Nightwing more than Robin.
The past remains the same; his parents' death, and all that psycho jiggamacrap, but purely based on the superhero character itself, I prefer Nightwing.
I'm really sorry but Batman Forever and Batman & Robin killed every single ounce of hope I have of Nolan coming up with anything good --if ever--, regarding Robin, Riddler, and/or Freeze. Although, as we agreed on, the latter doesn't fit the Nolan-verse.
I'm not hoping for squat until I'm in the theatre and see the end credits rolling.
Nolan has always had an interest in Psychology and how the mind works, I wouldn't be surprised if he covers Scarface & the Ventrilogquist in the next movie, though I can't imagine any scenario where that would be plausible, more like a homage to Psycho.
Looking forward to seeing if Scarface and Ventriliquist will be in the next film. I'm hoping that it is. Cause that'd be pretty sweet. Plus Scarface is still a good way of moving things from the mob to the freaks.
I still think Nolan was clueless about making that transition from the mob to the freaks. He had the perfect way to do so in Batman Begins, and I actually thought he would use the Scarecrow's gas to justify all those loonies popping up in later films. Clever and plausible solution. But he just did not use it, much to my annoyance.
I'm not sure Iike the title, it feels a little lazy.
Nolan has confirmed there will be no Robin whilst he's around. Bale said something similar I believe. I think we may see a completely new villain.
Completely new? That would be overkill. At least stick to someone we know.
I liked the idea of having the Riddler because that might mean putting the detective angle back into Batman. Let's not forget he first appeared, and still appears, in a magazine called Detective Comics, and he is not only a detective but the world's greatest detective, no less. However, the movies keep ignoring that fact, going instead for the brutal avenger (Burton) or the urban soldier/Ethan Hunt in an armor (Nolan).
I still hope some day, someone will get the character totally right on screen.
Oh, and the title totally sucks. It sounds like a first chapter, not a last one.
As a Holmes fan, I've always had a slight bitterness about this 'fact' however, Batman has teamed up with Sherlock in an episode of Brave & The Bold. Although it would be nice to see him doing a little more detective work in any medium. Supposedly in Arkham Asylum there were going to be actual clues to analyse, but the programmers felt it was going to slow the pace of the game down, which is why we have the simplified 'follow the trail of DNA' segments instead.
