Batman: The Dark Knight and the first Spiderman are the only "true" superhero movies I liked, that said if they had simply recast probably the best actor they had in Heath Ledger in Dark Knight it would outright ruin it.
Seriously not one actor NOT ONE I can think of would come remotely close to as good a job as what he did in that movie. Besides that, watch it become as bad as the Potter movies with a new Dumbledore in every single movie.
As for Superman, much like them already rebooting Spiderman it's way to soon! I mean it's like the new sequel!
"Crap people are tired of us just slapping numbers at the ends of the names! It's time to take it to the next level and just keep resetting the timelines! NEW ACTORS DARKER STORIES!"
Yeah... and crappy reviews and thrown together movies. You go with your bad self Hollywood!
(let it be noted that I rate ST IV as one of the best movies I have seen, kind of absolve it from the reboot catagory of bad movies seeing as how much time was taken in keeping the actors close to what we had in the first place)
Why the hell are they rebooting Superman? Just carry on with the one that recently came out. Jeez.
I do agree that as long as you are running with the Batman series now, you should keep the Joker out of it. There is no replacing Heath Ledger in that role in this series, much like it would have been dumb to replace Jack Nicholson in the other movie series.
They are rebooting Superman cause they want it setup like the current Batman. I am not sure how well that will play out in the real world look, but like i said before maybe it will setup a crossover movie.
As far as the villians in the new film?
I am hoping for a catwoman villian, but in the neutral bad guy area, and have two other villians going at it to control the city. Catwoman could play the part of the new love in Wane's life, and he finds out it's she is the Catwoman who works for one of the other main villians in this new film. Who would be the other two villians? Not sure, but they should play the role of crime bosses whoever they are.
Maybe the Superman reboot is so they can finaly make Batman: The dark knight returns. Gives them time to find a new joker and they will. All the comments about no actor could do it as well is what they said about Jack's performance and for me he is still the ultimate Joker.
I changed the plot to to being this. Both Catwoman and the Riddler would be working for the Black Mask, but the Cat woman would go rouge on the Black mask, and he is out to get her. At the sametime he is trying to take control of the city, and uses the riddler to cause trouble. It's too much for the police to handle, so Batman is once again called on to help out. The Catwoman would still turn into the new love in Batman's life, but the darkside of her life only comes out at the end.
