Batman 3 or not Batman 3?

The movie-going public has already assumed a third Christopher Nolan Batman film to be inevitable. But Christopher Nolan himself isn’t nearly so sure.…

What’s the story? Is there a story that’s going to keep me emotionally invested for the couple of years that it will take to make another one? That’s the overriding question. On a more superficial level, I have to ask the question: How many good third movies in a franchise can people name?

And while you’re lapping that up……

Should I bother mentioning what Mark Miller wants to do with superman or leave that for another day :D

I think for Millar to be entrusted with Superman, he’d have to “do” the character in the comics first to see whether he can get him right. Red Son, great as it is, doesn’t really count; and while Millar is a top, top writer at times, he sometimes misses the mark (his Marvel Knights Spidey was pretty poor) and I don’t know if he’d necessarily take Supes the right way (it’s hard to know how much input he had into the Superman Now proposal, too, as great as a lot of that sounds). I guess we’ll find out, though, one way or another, at some point…

I believe Millar wrote the Superman Adventures comic for a while (i.e., the comic based on the Bruce Timm cartoon), and apparently played it straight and did fairly well.

And I was wondering about this to start with, given the noises he made after Begins. I wouldn’t bet AGAINST him doing it, but I wouldn’t be counting on any of the tabloidy “EXCLUSIVE!” announcements about who the villain is going to be and who’ll be playing them either that have been coming in a steady stream since TDK…
