      Vera Farmiga looks a lot like Maggie Gylenhal, based on the quick Google image search I just did. Nolan is certainly giving Bruce Wayne a "type".

      Can someone explain this part to me? I don't recall Batgirl being addressed.

      ...Essen might be shown to be the real mother of Batgirl. Odd, as we thought Nolan already addressed the Batgirl story, in Batman Begins, perhaps not.


      Stupid conjecture about the storyline. Making Batman go after a mere serial killer would be lame. Nolan's stories are more epic than that.

      Theron as some kind of love interest sounds good. I'll shank a bitch if Catwoman turns up in this, but I have faith in Nolan.

      The Batman films Nolan has done have been on the ultra realistic side until now. I can't imagine him taking a character like Clayface and making him believable to an audience. If he could pull it off I would be astounded.

      I'm sorry but the title sucks balls. Someone was sweating bricks when they come up with that title. No creativity. As for the movie itself, a verdict can not be made yet.

      Yeah, I absolutely loathe the title. It's horrible. Was hoping they'd do a stand alone title like some of the major Batman story arcs ("The Long Halloween," "A Lonely Place of Dying," etc) or heck, even "The Dark Knight Returns."

      Definitely excited for the movie. No way it'll live up to TDK, though. I don't think.

      TDK wasn't thaaat great. Thought Batman Begins was far superior.

      Anyways, I can see Nolon reimagining Clayface as just another criminal with a disfigured face/body. Perhaps filled with botox and butt/calf/bicept implants gone bad.

      I don't really mind the title. I think Rise Of The Dark Knight sounds better, but I'm just not used to the other one.

      Would it be wrong for Nolan to make up his own villain? Just sayin', since we don't want anything supernatural or mutated to show up, like Pumpkinhead.

      I don't really know the Batman/DC universe all that well. In Nolan's movies so far, the villains have been motivated by psychology. Their physical forms were a result of their psychosis or used as a means for furthering their psychotic agenda. This seems to be an important difference, because with other characters, it's the other way around; their psychosis is a result of their physical form. Guys like Killer Croc, The Penguin, and Man Bat - their looks defined their behavior. Nolan seems to stay away from that.

      So with that said, what other villains exist in Batman's world who are driven psychology first? The Riddler? Cat Woman?

      Poison Ivy might be an interesting choice. An eco-terrorist so psychotic that even folks like ELF are afraid of her?

      Don't like the title.

      He's had good acting thus far (though I'm not a big fan of Katie Holmes).

      Theron is a solid actress. Maybe he's avoiding Vicki Vale due the cheese of the other Batman movies?

      I don't get it, either. They do show Gordon's daughter, but just as a little girl. I don't think they'd jump that far ahead in time. His wife's name is Barbara, but that also seems like a reach.

      I think that's what he meant when he said Batgirl had been addressed. Meaning, she's way to young to be involved in Nolan's Batman world.

      I have been having wet dreams about this since watching TDK in IMAX opening night. TDKR will be the most beautiful feature film ever if this comes to fruition.

      More news about two lead female roles to be cast and the potential actresses:

      http://www.nolanfans.com/2010/11/11/...-knight-rises/

      Rachel Weisz, please. Natalie Portman is great, but perhaps a bit too young. Namoi Watts is the only other actress of the six that I could see in the next movie.

      I hope Blake Lively is not in this.

      On the other hand Weisz and Portman

      Are you suggesting these at titles? Nothing personal but those aren't good and are worse than the proposed title.

      For one personally, they sounds too much like The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Nerds.

      That was my point, TDKR sunds like a lucas title to me, but I'm sure with Nolan behind the helm it'll be a good movie regardless.

      A few things. Aaron Eckhart says he is not in the film and Nolan turns in the script today.

      Good enough is never good enough. Going off the assumption that the "Rises" bit comes from Batman's image being restored in the eyes of the public, perhaps "Batman: Redemption" or something to that effect would have been better... :shrug:

      I had to re-read Nolan's quotes on Hathaway and Hardy to see if they were cut-and-pastes of the same comments subsituting the actors names.

      Bane
      Catwoman / Never been a big fan of that character, regardless of who's playing her. This one's all on Nolan. Hope he pulls it off.

      I'm curious to see what he does with the Catwoman character. I haven't read the comics at all, but if I'm not mistaken, Catwoman doesn't exactly fit into either a "good guy" or "bad guy" role. Should be interesting, to say the least. I trust Nolan, though. The man knows his stuff.

      Yeah she just kinda hangs out...aimlessly with no real agenda, but yet she'll get you caught up in such ways
      you'll wish you never met her. Never cared for this charator but we'll have to see.
