yeah i liked how it was kind of a darker movie
would've liked more f!ghts, but it kind of had to set the story
anybody know when the next one (remake with the joker) is coming out?
It's not a remake with the Joker. Batman Begins nor it's sequel The Dark Knight have anything to do with the previous movies. lol The Joker in the sequel will be portrayed as the dark character he should be. They begin shooting in a few months. It'll be released in 2008.
In the article, director Christopher Nolan has revealed a few details about the upcoming "Batman Begins" sequel, "The Dark Knight". He gives some revealing information stating the title was chosen with a deeper meaning in mind that’s important to the film, and the following exciting news about how the Joker will be portrayed in the movie:
"I would certainly point to The k!lling Joke but I also would point very much to the first two appearances of the Joker in the comic. If you look at where the Joker comes from there’s a very clear direction that fits what we’re doing very well."
For those not in the know, "The k!lling Joke" has been noted as one of the villains best all time stories. It explores his origins, and features the Joker carrying out some of his most diabolical schemes of revenge both against Commissioner Gordon and Batman. Most fans agree that the story, written by Alan Moore, is probably one of the darkest featuring the character.
The first few appearances of the Joker in the Batman comics also emphasised his dark nature a lot more than some fans may expect.
Now its time to expand on this story, with our own bit of exclusive information related to it. Almost a month and a half ago, the creators of this site went to the London Film and Comic Convention here in the UK and got the chance to meet Jerry Robinson, the man responsible for the creation of the Joker in the comics. He revealed to us whilst we were there that he is apparently involved with the movie in terms of consulting how the character will be portrayed!
I think this goes to show that Nolan is very serious about portraying this character just as the original creators intended, as a very dark and dangerous villain.
Batman Begins was GREAT.
Especially after the sh*t that was Batman & Robin.
