Here is the CNN story.
Sweet. I have a good feeling about Christopher Nolan doing it (anyone is better than Joel S. )
Well, it's a shame that the Aronofsky project has been stalled (not quite sure who Frank Stack is, though oh, well; all the other information seems correct), but this is kind of intriguing. I thought both Memento and Insomnia were very good, and Nolan may have just the right touch to do right by the Dark Knight.
I'm usually not too quick to believe things that sound like rumors, but this is CNN, and they're usually pretty reliable.
Very interesting choice. I really think he has a solid directing style and a great track record so far. It was also good to hear that he found his studio film experience to be a good one.
Some dubious choices to play Superman in that update (near bottom of article), however: Josh Hartnett? Jude Law? Ashton Kutcher??? Brendan Fraser? And Brett Ratner directing? to all of those choices.
I loved the Burton films, but the last two films tainted Tim's vision.
Hopefully this film starts from scratch.
I could see Josh playing Superman. Jude Law has been linked with James Bond recently, that also shows promise.
Ashton Kutcher? There's no way in hell that's gonna happen. just the same, I'll bet he's interviewing personal trainers right now.
So will we see Batman in the prime of his career first and slowly work our way backwards, to him as the kid in the alley again?
I'm not as enthused about Guy Pearce as Batman/Bruce Wayne.
How about Christian Bale?
I'd definitely be behind a Christian Bale Batman.
This is getting to be confusing indeed. Why can't WB sort it out once and for all.
Having said this, I think Nolan is a great choice indeed.
I think they made a mistake with this Frank Stack, perhaps they meant Frank Miller
The text in the article has been changed to "Frank Miller".
Just my opinion, but Ashton Kutcher reminds me a little of a young Christopher Reeve. At least in appearance.
You could almost use all of the cast from "That 70's Show" for a Superman movie.
Tim Burton is my favorite director and everyone agrees the 1st 2 Batmans were the best, so why do you think he's not doing anymore? His decision or the producers'?
I think Colin Ferrell would be a pretty good Batman if he could pull it off.
Superman is a whole 'nother issue. I don't think they could properly cast it, considering how good the original guy was.
If they are looking for a Younger Chris Reeve type for Superman it's a no brainer, give it to the actor already portaying clark kent Tom Welling. He's a drop dead image of chris Reeve, even chris reeve thinks so. And he's nailed the character of the young Kent on Smallville
Even though Welling is around 24-25 years old, I think he needs a few more years, allow him to grow up some more and give him a bit more gravitas to lend to the role of Superman as a grown man.
BTW, they better get Clark out of Smallville soon because Welling ain't getting any younger, and he's the most mature looking 16 year old on TV.
Bale would definitely be a good choice for the next Batman; he has the face of a Playboy, and a good enough physique to fill out the costume. Pearce does not in both cases.
