Warner Bros. Chief Jeff Robinov Says They’ll Reboot Batman Franchise & Chris Nolan Will Produce

With Christopher Nolan directing his last installment, “The Dark Knight Rises,” it looks like neither he nor Warner Bros. are ready to let go of huge comic tentpole just yet. Plans are to reboot it entirely—but with Christopher Nolan overlooking the process. “We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman,” Warner Bros. chief Jeff Robinov said. Asked if he meant a reboot, he said: “I do. Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”

It’s a pretty smart play by WB and for Nolan too. It keeps him well ensconced at the studio who bankrolled “Inception” and if he can keep making them bank, we’re sure that mutual relationship can continue. Although, how much can the franchise really and truly be refreshed if the director and visionary of the last three films is directly involved in the production? Guess we’ll have to see.

While we still know very little about the plot itself, it’s been rumored for a while now that The Batman will focus heavily on Bruce Wayne becoming a genius detective and speaking to sources close to the production, We Got This Covered has now learned a little bit more about what to expect. In short, the film will be a murder mystery which takes cues from Batman: The Long Halloween, a 13-issue comic book limited series written by Jeph Loeb with art by Tim Sale

From what we understand, the plot will see a serial killer loose in Gotham City and Bruce Wayne taking it upon himself to track down the lunatic and put an end to his murderous rampage. Along the way, he’ll investigate many of his biggest foes, with Penguin, Catwoman and Riddler said to be the primary antagonists of the piece while folks like the Mad Hatter and Two-Face will play smaller roles.

So, like we said, a murder mystery featuring many of the Dark Knight’s most iconic villains. It’s also been rumored that there’s going to be a secret twist bad guy who’s not revealed ahead of time that may be the one who’s behind everything, but who exactly that’ll be remains unclear. We’ve heard from two different sources it could be Hush, but neither would confirm that 100%.

In any case, this is certainly an interesting angle to take for the plot, as it’ll ensure that The Batman stands apart from previous movies featuring the Caped Crusader, which often made him more of a meathead and a physical brawler, rather than a detective trying to solve a mystery.

He’s essentially the vulture with a flame thrower

I doubt he will have a big part but penguin, riddler and catwoman has peaked my interest

It looks like Michael Giacchino is going to do the score for Batman. He did both Planet of the Apes films. He posted a statue of Batman on the side of a building somewhere on his Instagram. Been a while since I watched those films so I can't remember if the score is memorable or not.

@vexred Michael Giacchino is awesome! He's done SO MUCH great work.

I hope he uses a version of Danny Elfman's theme. It would be really cool to work that into his score.

They just hired a Cinematographer. The list of films he's worked on is really impressive.

Cinematographer Robert Richardson (‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’, ‘Kill Bill Vol 1’) has joined the crew for Matt Reeves’ ‘THE BATMAN’.

Still believe it’s going to come down to Eiza or Ana for Catwoman / Selina but think Ana would be more fitting for Zatanna when she’s introduced to the DCEU (hopefully :notworthy::joy:)

Eiza is my pick :drool: with Ava a close second :drool:

The Bat and The Cat

The women of DC > Marvel. They'd be great additions.

Just read that filming starts on 13th January in London.
Damn straight Ladies of DC :drool: Marvel isn’t even in contention and to think we’re only getting started with the editions of Black Canary, Huntress, Cheetah, Ivy, Babs, Supergirl etc etc to follow suit in the years to come.

That’s awesome to hear filming is right around the corner for The Batman, thanks for the info :thumbs:
