Hopefully this brings Batman back from the dead...the movie franchise was killed off way too early for this great superhero.

Yep

Blame Mr. Joel Schumacher for Batman and Robin.

And I don't want to pump this movie up too much, but it will be one of the awesomest most kick ass movies ever made!!

Consider that:

1. Christopher Nolan (Insomnia, Memento) is directing it.
2. Michael Caine is Alfred
3. Christian Bale (American Psycho) is Batman
4. Ken Watanabe (Last Samurai) is Ra's Al Ghul
5.Cillian Murphy (Lead guy from 28 days later) is the scarecrow
6.Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Katie Holmes and Gary Oldman round out the cast.

am very worried about this movie.

There's way too many name actors in it for my tastes.

You've got Christian Bale as Batman, Ken Wannatabe as Ra's Al Ghul, Michael Caine as Alfred (what was wrong with the other dude?), Katie Holmes as the love interest, Morgan Freemen and Liam Neeson as friends of Bruce Wayne, and Gary Oldman as Lt. Gordon. And those are only the announced characters.

Rumour is that the Scarecrow is also going to be in this movie.

Plus, it's the beginning of Batman, so they're going to tell his origin again. And they'll need to explain everyone else that's in the movie.

It could be great. I'm just a little worried.

isnt the script rumoured to be based loosely on Year One?
Batman Begins kinda sounds like an origin name too...
If they pull this off then i will soil myself in the theatre. .. so stay away from hamilton area theatres next summer.

Year One / Origin

As far as I've heard...they aren't going to touch on the origin too much...maybe a flashback like they had in Batman...but they won't actually have an intro with it happening...it'll more like Year ONe which is awesome.

Year One is awesome.

Although, it has nothing to do with Ra's Al Ghul or the Scarecrow.


I heard that initially it was going to be based on Year One, but then they decided to go for a more origin like story?

I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Okay, originally the movie was goign to be Year One, and Darren andro man from Pi was going to direct it.

HOWEVER. That's not what's happening. The Year One idea was tossed aside for the Batman Begins movie.

And I'm pretty sure that the original Alfred isn't dead.
Although he hasn't been making any movies lately.
