I loved (loved!) Batman Begins, mainly because Christopher Nolan is an awesome director and Christian Bale is the prefect Batman. For me, anyway. I resisted watching it for a very long time, because I had spent my life being embarrassed for most of the Batman flicks, but Ryan and Eric convinced me that this was the one worth seeing.
So when I learned recently (I don’t follow entertainment news so much) that there was a new Batman movie coming out called “The Dark Knight” I was thrilled, especially since it’s the same awesome combo as last time! It’s also really cool that someone has been doing a viral marketing campaign to get everyone psyched for The Joker, whose appearance was hinted at in the last film. I’m a little tiny bit skeptical about Heath Ledger as The Joker, but I’m willing to give him a chance. According to what I read on PITNB (scroll all the way to the bottom), Anthony Michael Hall will also be starring in a role. Who do you think he’ll play??
Anyway, everyone knows that the more tortured and moody Batman is, the better. I think that Christian Bale definitely felt the most genuine to me. Or maybe I just really liked seeing all his ninja training in the last movie (you can’t go wrong with ninjas, as I’ve always said). 2008 is a ways away, but I’m looking forward to it! Spider-Man 3 wasn’t as bad as I expected, but I think Batman will fill the void. At least we have Transformers in the meantime (and no, Optimus Prime will NOT have lips).
