  3. Appropriately nasty. If this is truly a young Batman, as has been indicated, that's right in line with something that could evolve into something akin to the tank-like Burton Batmobile.

    Saw a pretty convincing video which posits that the main comic inspiration for The Batman will be
    Geoff Johns’ and Gary Frank’s Batman: Earth One alternate retelling of the bat-origin (the volumes from 2012 and 2015). I never got around to reading these, but probably will this weekend.

    Apparently, the movie may also be retitled Batman: Vengeance

    There are so many high-quality Batman stories to use as inspiration for the script, I wonder whether they'll use any of them or come up with an entirely new story.

    The spoiler about which story they intend to use for this movie is truly disappointing. A failed DC project where they re-boot (again!) the big three (Supes, Bats & WW). I assume if the initial issues were successful they would've become an ongoing series but they sank like a stone, I'm not sure if they ever got around to releasing the WW book. So it's to be another origin movie, big whoop! Theyre probably using the book to throw co-creator Geoff Johns a paycheck! There's SO many terrific Bat-tales that haven't been touched, yet they continuously seem to be scraping the bottom of the barrel for content. I've said this before, the 'suits' at the studios aren't true fans and don't realize the goldmine they're sitting on top of. Although there's NO excuse for Geoff Johns signing off on this stuff!

    Such a bad choice. No one interested in this movie needs another Batman origin. It's safe to say the audience would be comfortable with his existence in Gotham at this point without explaining how he got there. It's a drag to keep rehashing familiar stories.

    I finally read Earth One volumes 1 + 2 by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank, which is what I'm hearing the filmmakers may be looking to for inspiration.

    They were both great reads, very enjoyable, and I could easily see them being the basis for another film adaptation.

    My comment wasn't directed at the Earth One story as I haven't read them and have no dispute if they're going to make a movie based on it. I'm only saying I hope they don't waste screen time re-telling the origin. Batman Begins spent nearly the entire movie exploring the origin, enough for any Batman movie made in the next century or so. The synopsis of Earth One looks to include an alternate story regarding the murder of Wayne's parents in order to set up an alternate Gotham universe in which corrupt police had a hand in it. Cool, but if the origin is touched on my wish is that it would be mainly through flashbacks a la Burton's original, and no longer than say 10 minutes total.
