What Direction Are The Batman Movies Headed In?

Why should there be a Batman Beyond movie?

This video sums it up pretty well.

First off, Will states that the repetitive uprising of Bruce Wayne is intense, heartbreaking, and critical to the legacy of the Batman, but it is EXACTLY what it is: repetitive.

“Aw man.”

Will points out that we should look to the future of Batman, to introduce new storylines, characters, and lead in to future projects. How many reboots are we going to see before that introduction to Bruce Wayne gets old on us? It varies from person, to person, but in the long run, we’ll be seeing the same material remixed over and over again.

Secondly, if we look to the future, there’s an unlimited amount of possibilities. With the new universe, there’s so many technological advances that could be used in a film. The gear is amped up and ready to go.

There’s plenty of cool effects that could replace jumping across rooftops, grappling hooks, and the classic batsuit. Actually, those were all pretty cool. But they could be improved on…I mean, wouldn’t you like to see rocket boots, an invisible stealth mode, etc.? I mean, he’s like a regular Iron Man. Oh right. Wrong universe.

Lastly, we can take a peek into where Bruce Wayne ends up, rather than his beginning, as with all the other Batman movies. Old-man Bruce mentors Terry McGinnis into taking his mantle as the Batman. I’d like to watch the awkward father-son relationship develop between the two as they struggle to learn from each other. Considering how Bruce is a father figure for many of his crime fighting sidekicks, just imagine him trying to teaching a clone of himself. Yeah, he has free will and all that, but Terry is the genetic copy of Bruce Wayne himself. That’s pretty awesome.

I’m down for another Batman movie. I think we all are. However, the direction it goes in is crucial. Are we willing to sit down and watch the same tragic back story for another reboot? Maybe, maybe not. Let’s see how the Justice League goes, and from there, we can decide whether we like it, or not.



Rain thingy idk mayun….and something along the lines of Jet Li peeing on Jackie Chan’s face


See that featured image? You were expecting a quote over some background image right? WRONG. A QUOTE ON A POST-IT OVER SOME BACKGROUND IMAGE.

Everyone: “Whaaaaaaat?”

Well, I’m not going to write about my memories of rain itself. Or meat buns. Though meat buns were a close second. 🙂 Instead, I’m going to talk about the life-changing effect of the memory of the scene of the humor of the movie of the collaboration of Jackie Chan and Jet Li and how Jackie Chan got peed on his face. This post probably wouldn’t be here if he had mist.

What Makes A Movie Good?

Seeing the new, leaked trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, I thought about visiting the movie theater some time soon (and thinking about how the creators of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are going to get more viewers now). Since the movie doesn’t come out until May 2015, I’m just going to talk about why good movies are good. Let’s start on the categories. According to this website,http://bozell.com/most-popular-movie-genres/, the most popular genre was action/adventure in 2012. I wasn’t really surprised about this data. Some of the highest-grossing films in 2012 were action movies, such as Skyfall, The Avengers, and The Dark Knight Rises. Some may argue that movies that make the most money aren’t necessarily the best ones, but I have heard my friends admiring these films in the past. I guess most people, including myself, love action/adventure movies because since most of the plots and fights would never happen in real life, our curiosity drives us to see what it would be like to live in a universe where all of this could take place. Also, I remembered hearing about how many people love horror movies because since some of us aren’t in these dangerous situations a lot, it’s actually enjoyable to feel such powerful fear to satisfy their dull lives.

I wonder why this was leaked 6 days early? Continue reading
