If you haven’t heard already, Zac Snyder at the ‘San Diego Comic Con’ with the help of Harry Lennix announced that the team of ‘Man of Steel’ and Warner Brothers were making another Superman movie. Zac is a great filmmaker and just a great a fan of movies, so he thought he’d help the audience out as to what the story was going to be about. Lennix then spoke a few lines from Frank Miller’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ under a spotlight.
I want you to remember, Clark. In all the years to come. In all your most private moments. I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you.
It’s huge news that has spread like wildfire across the globe, and Warner Bros. have announced that the film will be in theatres sometime in 2015. Some are questioning whether having Batman and Superman will undermine the Nolan trilogy, saying that the realism will be lost. All we know is that the same team behind ‘Man of Steel’ will be tackling possibly the biggest blockbuster the world has ever seen.
I don’t post captioned images, but this was worthy of a first time.
“What I try to do is write from the inside out. I really try to jump into the world of the film and the characters, try to imagine myself in that world rather than imagining it as a film I’m watching onscreen. Sometimes, that means I’m discovering things the way the audience will, with character and story. Other times, you’re plotting it out with diagrams and taking a very objective view. Writing, for me, is a combination of both. You take an objective approach at times to get you through things, and you take a subjective approach at other times, and that allows you to find an emotional experience for the audience.” - Christopher Nolan
Trivia: Heath Ledger improvised when he started clapping inside his jail cell in a mocking and sardonic capacity as Gordon is promoted. The clapping was not scripted but Christopher Nolan immediately encouraged the crew to continue filming and the sequence was included in the film.
Jim Gordon: I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss. I see the lives for which I lay down my life, peaceful, useful, prosperous and happy. I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts, and in the hearts of their descendants, generations hence. It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.
The final chapter of Christopher Nolan’s superb Batman trilogy; The Dark Knight Rises has had it’s fair share of reviews, however across the board it’s mostly praised as a typical Nolan film full of action, character and story.
It was confirmed just yesterday that The Dark Knight Rises has no overcome the $1 Billion mark, and has now succeeded what The Dark Knight grossed in theatres after the same period of time.
What did you think of The Dark Knight Rises?, was it better than The Dark Knight?, personally I felt that Rises was a film more about Gothom’s rise as it was Batman’s rise, about the courage and determination of Gothom’s finest, (including the protagonist who we’ve slowly come to love, Batman.) ?
