Producer Michael Uslan On Which Classic BATMAN Story He Would Like To See On The Big Screen

While doing the Q & A at the premiere of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2, long time Batman producer Michael Uslan, speaking strictly as a fan, revealed what Batman story line he would like to see on the big screen.

A little bit ago it was just announced that Batman, like there was ever any doubt, would be one of the core members of Warner Brother's Justice League movie. Also, another report says that the next solo Batman movie wouldn't likely hit theaters until 2017, maybe even later. Long time Batman Producer Michael Uslan was at the premiere for The Dark Knight Returns Part 2, where he was asked about the next live action movie. Uslan didn't give up any details saying, "Who knows what the future may bring." However, he did share, as a fan, that he would like to see The Dark Knight Returns story line in live action. Said Uslan, "I have to say, NOT speaking as a producer. Understand that? I'm just wearing my fanboy hat right now. One day it dawned on me there are two actors out there who are the absolute right age right now to do The Dark Knight Returns in live action, Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson." Once again he was speaking of his own personal desires, however it would be really cool to see that franchise come full circle with a movie based on The Dark Knight Returns storyline.

There was a question asked on whether we might get to see a Battle For The Cowl animated feature, as well as if there was a possibility of Terry McGuinnes might show up in one. Uslan pondered a bit and said, "Now if I could put my fanboy hat back on, not the producer hat. How cool would it be to see a Batman Beyond movie? With Bruce Wayne in his 80s training a young Batman, and how cool would it be to see Clint Eastwood as Bruce Wayne in his 80s?" While both of these are extremely unlikely to happen, it is cool to know that at least one of the Producers, are thinking outside the box when it comes to the character.
