News & Notes

Today's poster from Hobo123.

  • Slashfilm says that Warner Bros. wants 4 more Batman movies:
    We look at Harry Potter. It’s fantastic to have franchises that last that long. We want to do that with Batman and Superman and perhaps Sherlock Holmes.
    Given how few people seemed to love Superman Returns, they're going to have a hard time making 6 more of those anytime soon. But if they keep the quality in the ballpark of the first two, I'd have no problem with Batman 7.

  • If by chance you were heading to the New York Comic Con to meet Batman R.I.P. writer Grant Morrison, you're out of luck.

There were a ton of films featuring Superman to make theatres before the late 70s, but Superman II was still Superman II, because in the story it ignored the existence of the previous ones.

Since Batman Begins ignored previous Batman films, the Dark Knight was effectively "2", and the next one would be "3." Obviously they'll give it a real title, but until they do, that's the best name I have for it.
