Let's show some love for today's Guest Blogger, Jessenovels from JESSEnovels, and welcome him to the lofty state of Honorary Chicahood. (He's already got the geek thing down.) ~ The Management
It's no surprise that I'm a huge Batman fanatic, and with this coming year my mind jumps to one thing, THE NEXT FILM. So, as the crazy bat fan I am, I thought I would put my two cents and try to predict what we will and won't see in the next film, also dismiss some rumors. As we all know, MOVIE PREDICTIONS ARE FUN! (except when they're wrong )
(Things We Won't See )
- Robin - For those fans who want to see Batman's young sidekick in this film, do three things. First walk over to the nearest mirror. Second, start slapping yourself. Third, repeat after me, "Not a chance in hell."
Let's face it, Robin isn't much of a character. I wasn't of a fan of his when Bob Kane created him, or when he came out in Jeph Lobe and Tim Sales, " The Dark Victory." If you ask me ( and I know you didn't ) Bruce should have taken the boy blunder to a mall three cities over and left him there.
Robin would be poison to the franchise, having him would radically change the dark feel of the story, which would be a huge mistake. Nolan and Bale are anti-robin, so it's clear that this rumor can be put to rest. (I SAID TO REST!!!!)
( Batgirl )
Miley Cyrus as BATGIRL! I know the Geekachicas will get behind me on this and say, "For the love of God, no! " This nasty little rumor started to fly around when Comic-con got on its way last year. It was said that Miley made herself a homemade costume to impress some executives at Warner Brothers ( and what a fantastic costume it was). She even read a few lines for them and, believe it or not, she KNOCKED THEIR SOCKS OFF! Only a fantastic actress like Miley could do this. You've seen her acting skills, I mean someone please give that girl an Oscar. ( sarcasm... as if you didn't know )
Yeah, this amazing story is fake! (But you know what's not fake, my website jessenovels.wordpress.com. Don't look at me that way, it was bound to happen) Hannah Mountain fans Don't hold your breath, maybe when hell freezes over she might.. na, not even then. Just save it for your fan fiction.
Let's face it, do we need another Batman Forever, let's keep the character in the closet until ... maybe a reboot is better .
( The Penguin )
It would be nice to see Nolan recreate the character for the franchise, but as we heard from Nolan before, that's a no go.
( Killer Croc )
If you've seen Gotham Knights, you know he would tie in perfectly with the movie. Sadly that's not going to happen, Nolan is more interested in bringing in characters that are more realistic. (He's a must for the next film, fingers crossed.)
(Characters That will and might appear.. percent included)
Percentage of coming out in the next film: 75%
We all know the Joker was a huge story arc for the next film, but after the late great Heath Ledger's death, the chance of the character coming back looks slim.
People have said no one would be able to fill the shoes left by Heath Ledger, but these are the same people who bashed him when he was first cast. I, for one, would love to see the character recast. I strongly believe in sticking with the story. I'm not the only to think so - producer Chuck Roven said at the People Choice Awards to MTV, "On a personal level, Heath was a friend of mine. We had worked together before 'The Dark Knight,' but I still think that 'The Dark Knight' is its own thing, and we have to separate them."
A storyline should not be changed due to one actor. If Nolan and the team change the foundation, the third film might be the blow that ends a successful franchise.
( Harvey Dent/ Two Face )
Percentage of coming out in the next film: 55%
Yes, he's dead, BUT could the death of Heath Ledger make Nolan rethink this decision? Let's not forget Two-Face was the one leading the freaks in the Long Halloween comic, and it would make for a strong storyline between Bruce and Harvey.
As much as I want Two-Face to come back, his presence would hinder the Dark Knight story. So the chances of Harvey coming back look bleak, but we shall see. We can't deny fans would jump off their seats knowing Harvey Dent is back from the grave, maybe even camping, "I Believe in Two-Face" as he crushes the mob and hunts down the Batman, with the aid of the Riddler.
( The Scarecrow )
Percentage of coming out in the next film: 98%
This is a given, we might even see his role extend more then just a cameo.
( Catwoman )
Percentage of coming out in the next film: 85%
The thought of having Catwoman in the next film wasn't a sell for me, but if we don't see the Joker or Two-Face, this is her time to shine. She would tie in easily and add a nice romantic relationship with Bruce. Just no Megan Fox. She's eye candy, not an actor. (You've seen her films *gag* )
( The Riddler )
Percentage of coming out in the next film: 100%
Mr.Nigma is the face for the third Batman film, and a solid actor like David Tennant would make that role shine. Tennant himself expressed interest in playing the Ridder. Let's hope he gets the role.
Before I wrap this piece up, let's go ahead and make some predictions on who will be in the next Batman film. Will I be right? We'll soon find out...( I hope I can re-edit this, so I can tell people " SEE TOLD YOU SO" Muhahaha!)
Cast and title predictions:
THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS
Joker ( Johnny Depp )
Riddler ( David Tennant )
Catwoman (Angelina Jolie )
Scarecrow ( Cillian Murphy )
Cameos - Mad Hatter - Zsasz
