The Dark Knight speaks!

Apparently the Joker isn't causing as many problem for ol' Bats as we might've thought, because not only did he have time to head to New York to promote his new movie RESCUE DAWN, but he also took a crime-fighting breather to talk to Superherohype.com about the progress of his latest cinematic adventure, THE DARK KNIGHT. The Caped Crusader on whether or not filming is easier this time around, now that the franchise relaunch has gone so splendidly:

"People aren't questioning, 'Are they going to do it or not?' There's been an acceptance of, 'Yes, these guys know what they're doing' and also, because we got so familiar with each other... it's now the third movie that I made with Chris (Nolan) and Michael Caine. I've gotten to know everybody. We all know how we all work. It's like my 5th movie with the D.P. It just flies along because there's no question in trying to sort of work each other out at all. We all know how we like to do it, and there's a nice shorthand between us all in terms of communication."

And on the pressure of trying to outdo themselves: "Yes, you must, you have to do that. If we're just doing the same, then what's the point? There are people who should demand that, but it does get better, so we have to do that. That would be the death knell, wouldn't it? If we all got complacent, just said, 'Oh, we just have to bang out the same thing we did before.' Sure, we use the strengths, and we're not going to discard the things that worked, but we've got to move forward as well."

Having the Joker as the villain this time around is already a vast improvement from the first film by default. Nothing against Liam Neeson or his character, but I need some charisma in my villains. And Ra's Al Ghul wasn't the most thrilling person to look at was he, handlebar mustache and all. Not only that, but the fact that Katie Holmes is also out of the picture bodes well for its prospects as well. It's like the filmmakers took the two worst things from the first movie and not only eliminated them, but replaced them with something better. It's called making a good sequel Larry and Andy Wachowski. You should try it some time.

If you ask me, Ra's was an awesome villain. Specifically becauxe he was played by Liam Neeson...the first few times i saw it though, it was weird hearing him tell Bruce to use his anger for his advantage; i was used to Liam as Qui Gon.

Yeah, TDK is already fucking awesome. I almost wish we didn't know anything about it yet, seeing as it's still a year away. And lmao to the Wachowski Bros thing.

CATCH UP

My comp's been down for a month so I gotta play catch up with movie news and junk. Is that the new batsuit?!? It looks great! Why wasn't Ra's Al Ghul or Scarecrow good?!! There were only three things I didn't like from Begins:
- I thought they should've just called it 'The Dark Knight', the sequel could've been called 'The Dark Knights Returns.'
- Scarecrow didn't have enough screen time as a crazy villian...hopefully in the sequal he will.
- And of course Katie sucks at acting, but who

P.S. Good Wachowski Bros. dig!

Yeah, don't knock Scarecrow or Ra's Al Ghul. They were the perfect villains to have the first time around because they didn't steal any spotlight from Bale. Not saying that The Joker will, since they're trying to avoid the villain centerpieces that were the original movies, but at least in the sequel Batman will be more established.

Maybe you're forgetting Scarecrow.

Nice Matrix blast

Those two sequels really did suck...really a shame.

DARK KNIGHT RULES.

If I had to see only one movie next year, it would be The Dark Knight. I still don't think Ledger is a good idea for Joker, but I have faith in Nolan, and that is more important.

I was just happy that Liam Neeson broke the curse of Drinks a lot of Gin. Why Lucas didn't have him play Anakin Skywalker in the second or at least third film is beyond me. Physically, he was perfect for it, and he's actually a pretty good actor. Anakin could have done with a little less punk wining. Ah well. Ra's was good too, if a little confusing. He's Ducard-he's Ra's. Huh?

Still the champ!

Still, in my opinion, one of the best comic hero films! Despite little flaws in Begins, it didn't bother me as much to enjoy the hell out of it. I really, REALLY don't know what to expect by looking at the images or from what I read from the rumour reports. I only know that Christopher Nolan is a respectable director who knows what he is doing and I'm trusting that he will exceed how I feel about the first one with Dark Knight.
