Ratner talks Batman

09.24.2008

If you didn't already love Brett Ratner and his canon of vanguard cinema classics then get ready to now. As per usual, he was talking about projects he would like to do, this time with his focus on Batman-related spin-offs.

"As a kid, Batman was my thing... I’m a little jealous that I didn’t get to direct it, although Nolan did a great job. But there are so many characters in the Batman series, so many characters that I love, that the opportunities for spin-offs are endless.”

Ratner thinks that the first one should be a film just about the Joker, exploring his (possible) origin as the Red Hood. “That would be really cool... Heath was great... But the Joker is a great villain. That’s why Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger had so much to work with. And I think there will be another actor who can interpret that. It would be great to see [Robert] Downey [Jr.] as the Joker, for instance.”


Of course the up-side to what he's saying is that ponies will inherit the Earth before any of this shit ever happens.
Extra Tidbit: I just glanced at Ratner's birthday and for a split-second mistook it for the same day as mine. I know that means absolutely nothing, but even that tenuous connection scared the life out of me.

Why?

Is he serious? First off, I LOVE The Batman and particularly The Joker. I can't really express how much I love the character. A couple years back I ran around a foreign country dressed as Joker on Halloween... And this was an Eastern European country that doesn't do Halloween. My friends went with less crazy costumes. I hit up clubs in green hair and white skin...

That being said, this is a horrid idea. One of the charms of the character is that there are so many origins that no single one

Like most, I'm not a Ratner fan, although I did like RED DRAGON which I feel is underrated.

Green so you read it. Not because I'm hip. I'm not.

WTF? Stop bashing the guy. At least he has the resources to make a bloody film. He had to of done something right along the line.

Stop being so negative. It's lame.

There could be something...

Not jumping on the Ratner Bashing Wagon. The idea of a joker movie could be good, if done right. If the movie was done based on the graphic novel of The Killing Joke. I'm not too knowing of the exact title(feel free to correct me if I am wrong)That would be a perfect orgin story for the Joker. Like I said above, as long as its in the right hands.

Just because you mentioned Nolan, Batman, Ledger, and Downey JR. DOESN'T mean you're anywhere near the caliber for this.

Everything you touch turns to shit.

WHY THE F*CK IS THIS GUY EVERYWHERE??!

There are some people that I just don't wanna see...ever! I don't wanna' read about them, know about them, or look at their f*ckin' faces. Bret Ratner is one of them and probably at the top of that list, but for some reason there's always news about this douchebag that's related to something that I absolutely adore...like Batman and TDK for instance! Earlier on he was connected to the God Of War movie...which happens to be my all-time fave videogame. He f*cked' X-Men up the @$$ and now Batman?!

UGH!
Ratner is annoying. And just because Downey Jr. is awesome, doesn't mean he's perfect for every role!
Now Crispin Glover I could get on board with. Or even Nicholas Brendon (Xander from Buffy). Everytime I see him smile on Buffy I think he'd possibly be perfect for the Joker.

Absolutely not

We all know what happened when someone with little no knowledge or interest in the source material signed on to direct movies about Batman. "Batman Forever" and "Batman and Robin" happened.

Just as Joel Schumacher was the worst thing to ever happen to the franchise let's not taint it furthermore by allowing sub-par talent to make anything remotely related to it. "Begins" and "Dark Knight" restored Batman to its long overdue glory so let's just leave it at that.

Downey Jr is great but he

Not A Hater

I am one of the few to disagree. I blame Tom Rothman for X3. Even Matthew Vaughn leaving (don't get me wrong i love the man). There was not enough time for X3 in my opinion; it was rushed. For the limited time he had he did the best he could. I blame the studios. Or the parents...you choose.

FUCK. NO.

This is the fool who did Rush Hours 1-3, squandred great potential in Red Dragon (it was ok at best) and royally screwed up X3. Not to mention he actually thought A Guitar Hero Movie was a good idea.

STAY AWAY FROM BATMAN YOU FOOL.

P.S. I like Downey Jr. but I can't see that happening...though someone like Crispin Glover is another story...

Why is everyone hating on Robert Downey Jr just because ratner mentioned him in his stupid quote.

Ratner is a less than average director because he ruined one of my favorite franchises (i.e. X-Men) and the only reason I enjoyed Red Dragon was because of Edward Norton and the only reason I enjoyed Rush Hour 1/2/3 was because of the funny chemistry between Tucker and Chan.

So stop hating on Robert Downey Jr being mentioned because in all seriousness his career is on fire right now and

SURFNINJA

I worked as an extra on RUSH HOUR 3, and at one point during the day Ratner took the microphone (it was the opening scene with all the people protesting so there were a lot of extras) and he singled out this one guy. He didn't give him any direction, he just made fun of him. I don't know why.

That is why I don't like Brett Ratner. And he destroyed Bryan Singers great work with X-MEN 3. Sure, not all his movies are INCREDIBLY bad, but they're not all INCREDIBLY good either. RED DRAGON,

I'm kind of sick of people bandwagon-hating on Brett Ratner. Sure he put the X-Men film franchise in the shitter, and has made a number of middling films, but Rush Hour 1? For its time? Not a bad film. Red Dragon? Actually a pretty decent film. Cut the guy *some* slack. You're treating him like he's Uwe Boll or something.

But I agree, no one should let the guy near Batman.

I love that this piece of shit is jealous of nolan b/c he didn't get to direct the new batman films.

in all seriousness, i highly doubt this fat-fuck's name came up in the mix when time came to find a director.

i hate ratner, i hate when he speaks, i hate how fucking connected he thinks he is, how creative he thinks he is with all this joker spin off bullshit...and i hate that he's picking the obvious robert downey jr, to play the joker in his little fantasy world...such an unoriginal

Relax, guys. WB executives would offer their first-born to ensure that Christopher Nolan stays on Batman.

That said, if there's anyone who could do the Joker justice, it would be Mark Hamill. Sure, he's much older than Heath Ledger, but no one can argue that he doesn't have the character nailed.

Maybe Ratner can just put the joker in his next Miley Cyrus music video, or maybe he could just get Miley to dress up as the joker herself, or maybe Ratner should just build a time machine and get his past self to stop at Red Dragon so that his legacy would not have included the likes of X3 and Rush Hour 3.

I dont know

I like the idea of a spin-off but i sometimes think he gets a lot of grief for X3 which went through 3 directors before it came to him (that is a sign of what was to come) so that meant already it wouldnt be great. also red Dragon was pretty good and Ruch Hours were fun. So I dont think he is terrible.

C'mon.

Why again with all the Ratner hate? I think he's proven that he has talent and he's done so with a wide variety of projects. X3 was visually stunning, but it was the script that brought it down a few notches. Red Dragon: brilliant. Family Man was really good. And anyone who can keep Chris Tucker under control gets my respect. So I'm always willing to hear what he has to say about his dream projects. Sure, he's got a big ego, but he has talent to back it up, unlike Uwe Boll.

And this bullshit about Batman being his thing...yeah right, it reeks of bullshit! He probably doesnt know the first thing about batman!

Rattner is like that ignorant 12-year-old who keeps coming up with these stupid ideas and dropping names, because it'd be "cool" and "awesome" to his 12-year-old mind. His idea of a better Batman movie would be a Batman who owns a 1000-foot-tall Bat-Mech that shoots lasers and teleports(because it's "awesome") and it would star Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Cruise (because they all "kick ass").

WTF?

Ratner likes to put his name in the same circle as many popular properties.

Last time it was Superman.

Although I sometimes enjoy the RUSH HOUR flicks, and am able to tolerate X-MEN 3 without wanting to do the disappearing pencil trick, what has he really done to warrant Batman?

RED DRAGON. His best film. It was moody, dark, and menacing - and you somehow felt for The Tooth Fairy in the end... which is a good template for what he's thinking for his JOKER dream.

However, I'm strongly

However, I'm strongly leaning towards that thinking that RED DRAGON was a once in a lifetime fluke - more a sum of the talent he hired perhaps.

Oh... and WTF? Downey Jr.? What kind of paint thinner was he huffing?!?! Downey doesn't have the psychosis for the Joker.

ratner is a douche

ratner needs to stick to directing movies and stop talking about movies he thinks would be cool, because every idea he has spurted out sounds terrible. the mystery of the joker needs to remain just that...a mystery. and whats with the robert downey jr bandwagon all of a sudden. i like robert downey, but lets keep in minds - HE'S OVER THE HILL. action movies arent going to be his thing without heavy cgi.
