Ratner talks Batman

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.
