The Batman We Deserve
With The Dark Knight Rises already hitting cinemas, the world has felt the undeniable wrath of constant spoilers and articles. Coming from a fan, I myself am tired of this repetition. Not only for the same repeating article circuit it has embedded into the web, but that I catch myself reading every single article that is posted. It's quite amazing because, if you take a step back, Nolan has done something that every filmmaker dreams of. The Dark Knight Rises has people talking about it, a lot.
Assuming everyone knows of the "Untitled Batman Reboot" coming in the next years, people still talk and speculate as if Christopher Nolan is actually releasing another in the series. Or maybe if (SPOILER) John Blake's adventures as the caped crusader will ensue on the big screen. They won't, trust me, they won't. I'm not saying I know Nolan personally (although I am a TDKR extra in the Pittburgh Stadium), the films ended right where they needed. Nolan did something that most storytellers wish they could do. He ended the film on the note of an imaginative continuation that exemplifies the Batman as an immortal character. The way I have analyzed Mr. Nolan's filmography is to look at his works in these terms. His scripts end with a question mark rather than a period. Take some of his films for instance, "The Prestige" was Angier (portrayed by Hugh Jackman), was he "the man in the box?" Another is the infamous "Inception" top-totem scene. "Was Cobb dreaming?"
Remember, take a step back. These masterpieces that Mr. Nolan created are going to have people talking, comparing, analyzing, and loving for years to come. Heck, I still have in-depth conversations on "Inception" and "Insomnia". Mr. Nolan has given us a smart (and finally) phenomenal trilogy that will be forever looked upon as art rather than action.
