    Chris Nolan to make new BATMAN movies

    Chris Nolan to Revive WB's Batman Franchise

    According to Variety, Warner Bros. has signed Memento and Insomnia director Chris Nolan to revive its Batman franchise. It is unclear whether he will write the script as well.

    "All I can say is that I grew up with Batman, I've been fascinated by him and I'm excited to contribute to the lore surrounding the character," Nolan told the trade. "He is the most credible and realistic of the superheroes, and has the most complex human psychology. His superhero qualities come from within. He's not a magical character."

    The trade adds that it is not known how the new Nolan project will impact any of the other Bat-films, Batman Vs. Superman, Batman: Year One and Catwoman. Out of the three, the latter seems closest to being ready, with Ashley Judd expected to play the title role, and visual effects veteran Pitof making his directing debut from a script by John Rogers.

    WB's superhero project closest to the starting line is the J.J. Abrams-scripted Superman, with Brett Ratner directing and Jon Peters producing. The studio is currently testing actors for the lead role, with Josh Hartnett, Jude Law, Ashton Kutcher and Brendan Fraser among those rumored.

    so we gonna have BATMAN in reverse ? :butt:

    and Ashton Kutcher as Batman ? ...lol .. "dude, where's my Bat-Car?" ..lol

    Question is: what kinda Batman is he doin? Year one? World's finest? And what about Aronofsky? Is he out of the running? And Chris, get Frank Miller and these guys who are doin the Batman animated series.

    This would be great if they had not already ruined the Batman franchise with those later Batman movies.

    Maybe he could use the Dark Knight series as the guide for the new films, make them really dark and not action-comedy thrillers.

    I had hoped for a little more from Nolan, but I guess everbody needs that big paycheck, so I can't criticize too much- he's earned it.

    Agreeing with most of you here - Batman is best when it is dark. Batman and Batman Returns were good, Forever and Robin were not.

    Though there was a post a while ago about a darker batman in the works? involving scarecrow as the main villian?

    For batman, darker = better.
