In 1988 Tim Burton brought us the first Batman film starring Micheal Keaton and Jack Nicholson. Taking more of the mood from the critically acclaimed and my personal favorite graphic novel Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns instead of the 1960s campy, rockem sockem, word pop-up mash up. It completely change how we see Batman on both the comics and onto the screen. Spawning three sequels with the later two being directed by Joel Schumacher(Shame on you for Batman and Robin which I will never talk about unless I want my BP to spike)
But it was the year 2005 that Batman gotten into the real, thanks to British director Christopher Nolan. His first film in his trilogy Batman Begins showed us how Batman would turn out in today’s society with a realistic view. And it worked. He then followed that up with The Dark Knight which made the Joker scary as fuck. This year brings us to the last of the trilogy with The Dark Knight Rises. Now my thoughts.
THAT WAS THE BEST DAMN MOVIE I’VE SEEN IN A LONG DAMN TIME!!!! Bane was absolutely viscous. Taking away the sour taste that was from Batman and Robin when Bane was a mindless drone. This Bane came straight from Knightfall, he will fuck you up. In this case from the movie, HE FUCKED BATMAN UP. The fight between them in the sewers, EPIC! Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, she was great. But I noticed a few fan-winks Mr. Daggett straight from the animated series and the design of the Bat, come on that came from Batman Beyond. And Miranda Tate and the Save the World Foundation I knew she was Talia Al’Goul and they tried to play off that Bane was Ra’s son. A great twist and it could’ve worked, but that would’ve pissed off some fans. Understandable. And she worked as well. But the best scene was the war where Gotham’s finest led by Batman were taking on Bane. And by the end, all I have to say is WOW. Now since this series has now ended, I’m now curious on how Chris Nolan and Zach Snyder would work with Man of Steel. Would the god-like Superman fit in in the real world? We’ll find out next summer. But for now, I must say Thank you, Mr. Nolan.
I’ve gave it some thought and since the Nolan-Universe of Batman movies are about to end with The Dark Knight Rises with the main villain of Bane. I thought to myself given the realistic style of the movies who would’ve showed if these movies or stories could continue in the same universe. So here is my list thus far:
The Riddler: The villain that should’ve been in my mind in TDKR. Forget that cartoonish 60’s crap. HE’S FUCKING JIGSAW FROM SAW….with a green suit. He would’ve given Batman the ultimate challenge in my book. But we got Bane, I can live with that.
Black Mask-He’s a New York gangster with a black skull mask. You can go anywhere with this guy and he’ll be badass.
Mr. Freeze- Now I know he wouldn’t work in this universe, but I love Freeze damn it. He’s just a character that DOES—-NOT—-GIVE—-A —-DAMN. Like in one episode of Batman TAS he goes into a museum which showed off this rare dinosaur exhibit and completely destroys it. And his reason why is, “Because I can,” He’s a classic Shakespearean tragedy with a ice gun. Although Batman and Robin showed off Freeze(pooooorly) He would’ve been great in this.
Dick Grayson- Note that I’m not talking about Robin. Let’s bring in Nightwing. But his relationship with Batman is more like a teacher and a student. Let’s say Dick is already Nightwing in this universe being inspire by Batman’s actions in Gotham but lacks guidance and tools of the trade. Batman brings him in and teaches him.
Oracle-Now they established that Barbara Gordon, the original Oracle as Jim Gordon’s wife in this universe. But lets say she was a cop or private investigator that is very skilled with a computer and was injured in the line of duty and helps out from there.
well that’s all I can think of for the moment.
yeah after finding out that The Dark Knight Returns is going to be animated, I had to find out who’s going to be voicing That Black Ninja Nigga Named Wayne and its………..Peter Weller. ohh this is going to be soo frakken good. Peter Weller Robocop Buckaroo Banzai is voicing the goddamn Batman. my opinion he’s bloody perfect. now who are they going to pick to voice Superman
With the Avengers movie coming out in less then two weeks and after seeing episodes of Young Justice and Avengers:Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.I got the thinking and I know I’m not the first one to think of this. What if the Avengers go at the Justice League? It’s bound to happen sooner or later. So I kinda made a series of match ups with one Avengers member vs one JL member of a fight to the finish. So let’s get started.
Wonder Woman vs Spider Woman(Jessica Drew)- The Princess of Themyscira taking on a bio-chemical super bitch. Both are equally match fighting wise with Spider-Woman bringing the edge with her energy powers. But it’s all comes down to straight up brutality and only one has the inner super bitch in her to take care of the job. That would be Wonder Woman. Winner of the fight- Wonder Woman!
Batman vs Iron Man-Bruce Wayne(or what I would like to call him, THAT SLICK NINJA NIGGA NAMED WAYNE)head of the Wayne Foundation taking on Tony Stark, head of Stark Industries. Both guys are mortals who rely on there ridiculous amounts of money to fund there costumes, gadgets, and alibis. But what some may say the outcome of this fight would be who has the bigger toys? But in this case, not only who has the bigger toys? But who is the smartest in the battlefield? It turns out, they’re both equally match both mind and equipment wise. So winner of this fight-draw.
Aquaman vs Namor- Both men hold the title of King of Atlantis, both are half human, both can swim really damn good. But one can talk to fish and one can use the characteristics of fish. But it comes down two who’s the major bad ass. The winner and TRUE King of Atlantis-Namor!
Green Lantern(Hal Jordon) vs Vision-The Earth’s first(technically second)Green Lantern taking on the super robot from the Avengers. Hal could easily take out Vision if he was a straight up robot. But they’re both masters of energy manipulation making them somewhat equally matched. But comes down to who would last. And nothing beats the power of will. Winner of the fight-Green Lantern.
Now for the last fight a handicap match: Superman vs Captain America and the Hulk- The Man of Steel vs The First Avenger and The Big Green Machine. Superman being the alien in the bunch taking on a test tube project and a lab accident. You would think that two on one, the odds would favor the two taking on Superman. But think about it for a bit. Cap being a “super human” he’s much more faster, stronger, agiler, then a normal person. Armed with a shield and built his own fighting style. The Hulk is an unstoppable juggernaut of rage. Superman being a person from outer space, as a whole arsenal of powers( x-ray vision, heat vision, super hearing, super speed, flight, freeze breath, bulletproof skin, and superhuman strength). So outcome, Captain America would easily be cancelled out of the equation by Superman. But the real challenge would be the Hulk. Superman taking on the Hulk would be worse then taking on Doomsday(now that would be a fight Doomsday vs the Hulk). No matter how much punishment he is given, the Hulk would become more powerful blow after blow after blow. So winner of the match-The Hulk.
I might do some more match ups but my brain hurts
