John Blake and Miranda Tate may be like Batman characters that came on maybe in the late 80s or 90s, I'm not familiar with them any more. But I think there may be a couple of lesser known old school villains that might not be considered "goofy" by today's standards. Mr. Freeze if done right, or maybe the Bookworm or poison ivy or man-bat or egghead...well, maybe not egghead.

Mr. Freeze was a GREAT villain in the animanted series. Poison Ivy was fun as well. I'm not sure either would work in a live action film. They cross the goofy line in my mind.

Man-bat might work. But then you aren't watching a super hero movie. You're watching a monster movie. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

And unless Egghead is Vincent Price, I ain't interested.

Theory is that Miranda Tate is Al Ghoul's daughter. They are tying this movie to the first so it would only make sense.

Personally, I've never really liked The Dark Knight. I loved Batman Begins, but found that Nolan's second one just lacked something. Can't really put my finger on it...
You are right Tim Burton did a real good job. It sucks what happen to Batman after that.

Thank God for Nolan.

It seriously made me forget all about the neo-60's batflicks from Shoo-mocker.

Nolan made Batman into a serious movie character beyond just a comic book hero. I believe that is what there trying to recreate with the Spiderman reboot.

I dunno. The more I see about this movie, the less interested I become. This is looking more goofy than cool.

Don't judge it from what you see now. Once the movie has gone through post-processing and stuff, it would have the Nolan trademark on it.

Any movie becomes demystified to the point of clownery when you're viewing production as it happens.

The gloss and finish will make it cool. If there's anything I've learned from film the past 10 years, it's trust Christopher Nolan.

I'm still skeptical.

On The Dark Knight, as soon as stuff started leaking out, I thought it was certainly a different take on Batman, but it looked very exciting. Third film leaks (so far at least) haven't struck me the same way.

And I'm not on the Nolan Is A Genius Wagon. I loved The Dark Knight. Probably the best superhero movie ever made. But I was underwhelmed by Batman Begins. It wasn't bad by any means. It just wasn't great. A so-so movie that started out very good but progressed well into silly territory the farther the movie progressed.

So for the third film, I'm certainly hopeful. But not optimistic based on what I've seen so far.
