    Catch your crappy quality TDK trailer link while it's hot and not-taken-down



    Mix all of the above together and it's looking pretty clear what tone they're going for in this closing entry of the franchise.

    Post-script: can you believe they're already talking about reboots when this one is done. Fuck me dead.

    Yes I can, and yes it's enraging.

    of course. Hollywood's been out of ideas for some time now, if you hadn't noticed. Seems like just about every big budget film made nowadays is either a reboot, remake, or book adaptation.

    This movie should be good, but that bit with the exploding football field just looks dumb and way too over the top.

    What the hell?

    The sad thing is, we'll all see the reboot anyway, "just to compare".

    I'm not really surprised. If I recall correctly, Nolan had long announced that the third movie would be his last in the series and I could easily imagine him having pushed to make it the last act of this rendition of the setting altogether and write the plot accordingly. On the other hand, what were the odds that Warner Brothers were just going to sit on the Batman franchise, even more so with how successful this last run's been? So yeah, as awkward as it might be for some of us consumers, a new take on it within a couple of years seems like the sensible money decision for them, at least for one go if it ends up falling on its face.

    So if the reboot happens, can we -finally- get Mark Hamill to play the Joker?, or voice him at least

    Also, football field scene does look a bit too cgi-over the top, but the rest was aces.

    What I don't like about it is that the guy runs like hell at first and then just sort of slows down and casually turns around at the end even as the ground is caving in mere feet from him. The performance of the actor and the cgi isn't really matching up in a convincing way and instead of reshooting the scene they just decided to go with it. That's kind of lazy, and really not what I expect from a Nolan movie. Other than that one scene, yeah, this looks alright, though it's not getting me excited like the Dark Knight trailer did.

    Sadly, I understand that Hamill has stated that Arkham City is to be his last ever job voicing the Joker.

    Anyway, as a supervillain, he'll never top Cock-Knocker for my money.

    I think he was running for the endzone, too focused on scoring to realize the field was falling apart until he reached his goal and started the dawning realization that all that noise wasn't applause.

    I thought that was pretty clear. Anyone who didn't get that shouldn't be watching films at all.

    Ah. I watched it again and yeah, it does kinda look like that's what happens.

    yes, make it so

    It may have been the quality of the first leaked vids but if you watch the good quality one N'Al posted it's pretty clear that he runs to a touchdown without realising what is going and then turns around.

    +1 for the snippet of the music from the other films in the trailer. It's a great piece of orchestrated drama.

    You sure?

    Surely there's going to be a 3rd Arkham game, and even if he makes a brief appereance at the end of that game, the Joker -will- return to life (old comic book principle, no heavyweight character stays dead for long...Hell, even middle or lghtweights get their 2nd chance).

    Hope you read wrong, boyo.

    Sorry brony - "This will be my last, there's no question about that. But it's the last hurrah."

    Though he did say he'd do the Joker if they ever adapted The Killing Joke.

    You don't want to fuss too hard about silly things like vanishing astroturf. They might look naturalistic and gritty but plenty of absurd comic book things happen in these movies.

    I'm not going to watch another reboot, in fact I was done with Nolan's version after seeing the Dark Knight. That film took itself way too serious and shoehorned in some sort of social comment about terrorism that was enough to give it a relevant sheen but blunted enough not to offend anyone.
    I once saw Tim Burton's films, which were entertaining, and that's quite enough Batman for me. After all this is a simplistic comic book story. It doesn't need a dozen takes to get it right. Much less do I want to support the cynical calculative attitude that spurns these films.
