Warner Bros To Reboot Batman Franchise After The Dark Knight Rises!

batman to get reboot treatment

And they'll be bringing back Batman & Robin's Joel Schumacher to helm the Batman reboot!!! JK!

Schumacher may not be returning, but then again neither will Christopher Nolan as director, or Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne, because after The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters, Warner Bros will be completely rebooting the Batman franchise.

Here's what WB chief Jeff Robinov had to say about it:

“We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman…Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”

Well at least Christopher Nolan will be involved on SOME level. That makes us feel a bit better about it.

Guess we'll see who they bring in to direct. How about they go the comedy route and bring in Judd Apatow for this one? LOLz.

We're thinking James Franco as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Harold Ramis as Alfred, Leslie Mann as Bruce's love interest, and Seth Rogen Jason Segel Jay Baruchel Jonah Hill as the new Joker!

And hey…if they want to stay conventional for this reboot, that's fine! They can bring in Apatow when they reboot the franchise again in 2020.

Who do U think they should bring in to direct and star in the Batman reboot?

    Why? This is absolutely ridiculous. Nolan's Batman movies are amazing, no need to re-do them this soon.

    Who cares? Honestly, I don't think I've ever walked out of a Batman movie entertained. The marketing suckered me in to see the last one after skipping the 2 prior and I just thought 'bla - why do I torture myself?'.

    This is ridiculous to keep remaking the movies. Here's an idea, hire a real writer instead of remaking everything!

    Kevin "Clerks 3-D" Smith would be awesome to take over!

    Imagine what the catering service table would look like!

    I think a 2nd Trilogy should be about Bruce Wayne taking Dick Grayson under his wing. We cannot do another origin for batman next but have a new set of films about Robin.

    Seriously!? why is this necessary!? Christian Bale/Christopher Nolan have nailed the last movies! I just hope they don't do the Joker again. No one can beat Heath Ledger on that one.

    I'm sick and tired of reboots



  9. 9

    boring
    i have script for you about writings that keep getting paid to rewrite the same stories again instead of coming up with something new

    Can't they give the Batman franchise a rest … for at least a decade!

    If they are going to do it I say do the Dark Knight Returns series. It deals with Wayne in his twilight years trying to come back. Let Keaton take the roll and run with it. Get Frank Miller to direct. Nuff said.

    I honestly can't picture anyone else playing Batman. Christian Bale is fantastic in the role. Maybe they should just stop making them after this film?



  13. 13

    How many times can you reboot a franchise?



  14. 14

    Re: 7tizz – I kind of agree. The problem with Batman movies is that Batman generally has no personality at all.



  15. 15

    Studio's are getting more and more idiotic!



  16. 16

    I will not be a member of the audience of this joke. After the wonderful last movies we have had, something
    like this is an insult, and will only appeal to adolescent boys. Or maybe immature men children. Count
    me out of this gross mistake.

    Are you kidding me? Jonah Hill as the Joker? That would be a TERRIBLE idea.
