Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

I like the title, it's simple and if Nolan has a specific theme in mind to conclude a character arc for Bruce then it fits as well. As soon as I read it this morning I thought that this probably implies to Bruce rising out of the darkness he was in at the end of the last movie. There is heavy speculation that Talia is the female lead that Nolan is busy casting at the moment. I'd love if Hugo Strange were included, I could see Tom Hardy playing a creepy/intellectual version of the psychiatrist, perhaps a cross between his Eames character from "Inception" and an intellectual.

Bane would be a fittingly ironic choice of villain, given the title of the film. He could use Azrael too, since he doesn't have "powers" per se (retcons notwithstanding) and fits well into a Bane story, as does Talia.

Ooh, Azrael might be good, and could totally work in the "realistic" universe Nolan's set up: group of religious uber-zealots have been training a weapon to combat, say, the League of Shadows: that weapon is Azrael and his target is Talia Head. Tom Hardy as Jean-Paul Valley, Milla Jovovich as Talia.

Emily Blunt would be my personal choice for Talia. I think she'll be young. The novelization mentioned her as attending University or something and was in correspondence with Ra's who was writing her about Bruce. It was rumored a few months ago that Blunt was being considered for Catwoman but those were proven false.

Ideally, I'd like Scarecrow to be back. Larger roll than The Dark Knight, but maybe not as big as Batman Begins. And then plant some hints that in this universe, he, as opposed to the Joker, would be Batman's main rival throughout their lives.

As for actual villain, with both Penguin and Riddler shot down, I can't see myself caring all that much for them.

As fang said:

Nothing is stopping Edward Nigma from being in the movie.

He could be a forensic detective that ends up going mad at the end of the movie as he's trying to track down the same villain that Batman is tracking down.

So at that point I'd have to ask, why would we want that? Assuming there's a vanishingly small chance of another Batman after this, at least with Nolan at the helm, why would we want the move to waste time on setting up a character that will never be realized?

I think the second movie did it perfectly well.

It set up Two Face and wrapped up his story in one nice, neat package. The second movie is effectively two movies intertwined.

I'm a huge Black Mask fan...I don't know why really, I just really love the guy...both of them...and while I don't think that Mask would be in the movie he's a possibility because of his mob role. With the decimation of the mob in "The Dark Knight" and their leadership being broken someone like him or the Penguin could step in and take control. I really do think we'll see Taila attempt to avenge her father while romancing Bruce, after all as Ra's told Bruce in the first movie "Ra's al Ghul used theatrics and deception as weapons as does his...daughter." (that is how I'd reveal her identity to Bruce.

For me I'd love to see Black Mask in the Mobster role. While Bats is trying to stop him (and step out of the wanted list that ended the 2nd film and the title hints at), I'd like to see the Riddler legitimately trying to figure out who he is but becoming more and more obsessed with it.

For the hired muscle or fight scenes we'd need I'd love Killer croc. He can be done realistically. He's a guy with a skin condition.

As much as it would be visually interesting to see Killer Croc in "The Dark Knight Rises" I really don't think that type of character is interesting to Nolan or fits into his Gotham City, even an reimagined Croc. I think that we can cross off all the more elaborate and over the top rouges like Mr. Freeze, etc. I think that Nolan already has a clear mind of the type of story that he wants to tell, this is one of the reasons why it's taken this long for things to get going on the project because he needed a break (reports from the previous production and even on Inception are that he has really intense shoots and gets stressed out) and required time to figure out a story that would be interesting. He stated after "The Dark Knight" came out that if they were to do the third film that they would not set out to top it.

The fact that we're going to be getting major "Dark Knight Rises" and "Superman" news over the next few months as we head into production for both movies has me salivating. 2012 is definitely going to be the year of the comic book film!!
