While I knew that Waner Brothers was working on bringing the Batman franchise back from the neon grave that Joel Schumacher buried it in, I had no idea that the project was this far along: the teaser trailer has just been posted.
The trailer doesn’t really show me enough to be absolutely sure, but it does look promising. What looks more promising, however, was the cast they’ve lined up for this thing!
- Director: Christopher Nolan (Memento)
- Batman/Bruce Wayne: Christian Bale
- Ducard: Liam Neeson
- Alfred Pennyworth: Michael Caine
- Rachel Dodson: Katie Holmes
- Sgt. James Gordon: Gary Oldman
- Lucius Fox: Morgan Freeman
- Richard Earle: Rutger Hauer
With any luck, we just might get a watchable Batman movie again.
