The Dark Knight News

May 29, 2008 at 1:48 pm (Movies)

Possibly the movie I’m most anticipating this summer is The Dark Knight, the tale of Batman battling both the creepy new villain in town, the Joker, and having to watch the cruel demise of his friend Harvey Dent who’s running for district attorney. Recently I posted some concept art of what Harvey Dent’s villainous persona two-face. Along with these multiple story arcs coming into an already-complicated universe like Batman’s, one wonders-“How’s it all gonna work?” Well I was browsing through IMDB and came across the following information:


  • There will be no back story for the Joker set up in the movie, the opening scene is rumored to be the robbery of the Gotham National Bank by the Joker and his henchmen.
  • Anthony Micheal Hall from “The Dead Zone” will be playing a reporter in the movie, some believe he manifests as the Riddler in the sequel to Dark Knight.
  • Harley Quinn is rumored to have a brief appearance in the movie.
  • Harvey Dent is rumored to have his transformation into Two Face during the very end of the movie, setting him up for the sequel.
  • Micheal Caine, Gary Oldman, and Christian Bale have signed on for a third movie.
  • The movie has been rated PG-13 for intense action sequences and menace
  • The movie is rumored to be 152 minutes long

    Well, Christopher Nolan definitely has a darker (and well-welcomed) take on the Batman universe, so villains like Scarecrow and the Joker, along with a deeper look at the mob. It would be interesting to see Nolan’s take on the Penquin, along with any other Batman villain. I personally don’t see him adapting the character, but rumors have floated around that Two-Face will be the primary villain in the sequel to this one, along with the Riddler.

    The Riddler. I won’t be able to take that dude seriously. No matter how dark they make him.

    Yes it will be Nolan, yes it will be.

    I think the Riddler could be adapted to fit Nolan’s BRILLIANT vision. I think right now we’ve still got that image of Jim Carrey prancing around. I think some probably thought the same about the Joker and Two-Face before they saw them in the movie.

    They say Anthony Micheal Hall might play him.
