Zack Snyder Wants to Make "The Dark Knight Returns"

Posted: January 6th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Zack Snyder Wants to Make "The Dark Knight Returns"Submit Comment
Zack Snyder is no slouch when it comes to moviemaking. He started his career with "Dawn of the Dead," which is (in my opinion) one of the best horror films in the last decade. He followed that with "300" and is currently adapting "Watchmen," which has been called unadaptable. Snyder has become a go-to director for quality entertainment, so what project has he set his sights on next? Apparently, a Batman movie.

"I'm interested in Frank Miller's [graphic novel] 'The Dark Knight'," Snyder told IFMagazine. "That's really my favorite comic book. However, the studio has this massive franchise and I don't think they'll let me make a Batman movie where he's fifty years old and Ronald Reagan is president."

The comic book series that Snyder is talking about is called "The Dark Knight Returns" and takes place when Bruce Wayne retires as Batman after the death of the second Robin, Jason Todd. After Gotham is overwhelmed with crime and is plagued by a violent gang called The Mutants, Bruce comes out of retirement to fight the gang with a new Robin, a young girl named Carrie Kelly.

The series also includes Harvey Dent who fixed his face but is now planning to blow up Gotham's twin towers. Commissioner Gordon is forced into retirement at age seventy. The Joker gets released from Arkham Asylum after being catatonic for ten years.

Would you want to see a Batman movie with a fifty year old Batman and a female Robin?

No way, not Zack Snyder. Maybe not even Christopher Nolan, this was a very different take on Batman that I think should be directed by someone like Alex Proyas, I hope I spelled tht right. Or someone that can make a movie that exists in another reality, but Snyder is too over the top when it comes to action, I think this particular story needs a director with stronger storytelling skills than the guy from 300.

As much as I'd like to see it, and as cool as it could be, I don't think it's a good idea. The continuity would be based off of nothing seen in any movie so far, and turning a one-shot stand alone story into a feature film seems like a bad move for an on going franchise. Maybe some day, but not any day soon.
bugmenot writes:

"The guy from 300" is also responsible for the Watchman epic, which if you've ever read, is much more sophisticated than the turd written by Frank Miller. Let it wait several years though, when it's appropriate for a new Batman to actually be released. That will actually give them a reason to do a third one.

i agree with bugmenot. zack snyder would definitely be capable of making dark night returns, but i definitely think he should wait a while. you (MrSammich) dog snyder for his storytelling skills, but what you apparently fail to realize is that zack adapted 300 and watchmen almost perfectly. what you're saying isn't discrediting snyder, but miller. the movie version of 300 was pretty much identical to the graphic novel. sure he had to add some things for length but still, anyone who braves watchmen and nails it right on the head, has mad respect from me.

There's nothing more over-the-top than Dark Knight Returns, Sammich. And are you really telling me that the dude responsible for I, Robot and the Knowing knows more about story-telling than the guy who did Memento and the Dark Knight? No. I'm being unfair, Proyas also did Dark City and The Crow, but they weren't the Prestige or the Following. As far as Snyder goes... HE HAS TO PROVE FIRST THAT WATCHMEN ISN'T GOING TO BE A SLOW-MOTION FEST. He also has to prove he can bring that story to the big screen and not only be loyal to it in a matter of content, but the context and spirit of it as well. You can make a movie about Watchmen using the comic as your script, you can make everything look the same, but everything has to FEEL right. And Snyder has shown lots of flash, now it's time to show some SUBSTANCE. If he can do that, then yeah. Go right ahead.

I would very much like to see Snyder directing a new and even darker Batman, because I would interested in seeing what Snyder could do with the world of Gotham City. It makes me sick to my stomach when I hear people say "Uh, the Dark Knight was so dark uh uh uh", because really... it wasn't. It was a great movie, sure, and no it doesn't deserve an Oscar for Best Picture.

I was thinking this could be a good jump for Nolan with a story that would be told both in present time (Christian Bale) with Rachel Weisz as Catwoman and Philip Seymour Hoffman as Penguin. Then the future half would be Powers Boothe as The older Dark Knight. That would be DREAM!!!!! But Snyder is a pimp.

Zack Snyder had definetly graced us with his movie magic and accurate detail. I think he could do something like this and make it amazing like all his stuff. Its obvious the man has a knack for the graphic novel world and so forth. If he does do this though it should be in like 6 years or so, let him tackle something else and wait for Christopher Nolan to finish his mastepiece saga. I think we can all agree Batman will never die in the eyes of filmmakers and fans. As for an older retired Batman? I have no idea who could do that justice and make it good. Like I said, maybe wait several years and have Christian Bale come back as an older man. Female Robin? no clue who could do that either, it'd be best probably to stick with a no name talent.

I'm a little bit miffed that everyone here assumes that a 3rd BMB is inevitable. I for one don't think it would be possible to top TDK, as 2nd installments are usually the best act. Coupled with the fact that Nolan admitted going "all out on this one"...it's very worrisome all of you don't seem to care about a crap third like the Godfather III or something... I also gave it thought and yes, if they transitioned into the darker world of TDKR and Batman Beyond, then I would be down for this being the third installment in 6-10 years.

WB isn't passing up another billion, bugmenot. Get real. Money talks, your and other's BS walks. If Nolan takes a leave, and I doubt he will, WB will find someone else. Does ANYONE really believe WB will simply say "oh, that was GREAT, lets make the third in say ten years? While we are waiting, though, let's take a gamble on some Miller Batman stuff that may likely alienate audiences to Batman altogether. I mean hey, what's the risk?" You forget WB is the same company that pushed Reloaded and Revolutions. You forget that a bad 'intermediate' film like TDKR would possibly damage the fanchise, ruining the vastly and HEAVILY anticipated third film. No, the third IS inevitable. WB is all about the cash, and DK was a box office nuclear explosion. Only the DUMBEST of companies would pause for up to a decade for the third film, while throwing in some provincial Miller stories, stories that have a context only some THREE decades earlier. I mean, hell, if they want to cut the cash flow, why not Pope's Batman Year One Hundred? No, the third film needs to cement Batman. They need to get Nolan, have him take a slightly different route. Batman 3 CAN suceeed if Nolan ruminates long enough. He just needs to approach from a different direction, ever so slightly. A different angle, a clean fresh story. The third film can succeed, and it CAN even beat the second film IF, ahuge IF, WB lets Nolan marinate for a while in the Batman mythos. If WB pushes hard for a third, and fast, and Nolan gives in, then yes, the third film will fail compared to the second.

I'm sorry, minkowksi, if I was too subtle for a pissant like you to understand. Because you went and just rehashed what I had basically said, but for the wrong reasons. You misunderstood everyone else's sentiments so aptly that you deserve the "prick of the day" award. No one ever said let's hold on BMB and start with some Miller sh*t. No no, that was alllll you, buddy. What we said was come back later on in the line with the TDKR AFTER a BMB3 or whatever. About Watchmen, and Snyder specifically, WB wouldn't have selected him without pure confidence that he could handle the material, just as you suggest about Nolan. The novel has been called unfilmable, despite its cinematic similarities by several different people. And the early reviews of it and test footage screens have been pretty glowing so far. For someone that likes a lot of logic in his vitriol, you clearly missed this point. Second, as I said before, your comments about a third film demonstrate your simplicity and poor comprehension for everyone to see. Of course WB will go make a 3rd one, no matter the source material or director. The sad fact of the matter is, Nolan himself admitted that a new movie was at least 4 years away, as they went all-out on the second. Possibly further, knowing of his perfectionism. So while you make the right arguments, they're through blind assumptions, and you're nothing more than a troll who got lucky. f*ck off now, fag.

"then I would be down for this being the third installment in 6-10 years." So what the f*ck does this mean? We would have to wait 6 to TEN YEARS for the 'third installment'? And you were talking about TDKR? LOL. You're an idiot. You said right here, you would wait 6-10 years for the THIRD INSTALLMENT, or did you mean THIRD SEQUEL? And you want the 3rd film to be TDKR? LOL. So the only way I can possibly understand your illiteracy is if I ASSUME you mean(t) 'prequel' when instead you typed 'installment'.
minkowski writes:
on January 6th, 2009 at 9:24:53 PM

And you really, really think WB is going to even FOUR YEARS? LOL. I can't even find a quote where Nolan says he may wait four years. It isn't in the LA Times review. People are always making up sh*t or missing context. Jeez.

My literacy skills are fine. This proves that you don't understand the conditional statement and should probably get that GED of yours after all these years. I said I'm fine with the third installment being TDKR if they planned to go that direction and expand the series. Personally, I don't find it that bad an idea, and if it's a quality product, yes I will wait that long. Doesn't mean it's the only way. If you're so incapable of thinking that, then it means that you're probably under the age of 12 or a retard. Either way, your comprehension's still piss-poor. But by all means, continue being a fag for the world to see.

So you want Nolan to cease his trend of realism, and film a third batman featuring a fat batman, a horde of little kids in a cave, a laughable caricature of Ronald Reagan and some of the most quirky comicbook storyline elements? LOL. And I'm the f*cking faggot? Get real, loser. Thank god YOU aren't making films. Oh wait, I guess I wouldn't notice much of difference with all the sh*t hitting theaters, would I?

"if they transitioned into the darker world of TDKR and Batman Beyond, then I would be down for this being the third installment in 6-10 years." If is the conditional statement, right? Like the if, then or if else statements in C and C++? Right? So I think I understand, and your 'conditional statement' changes nothing. If they go in a 'darker' direction? TDK wasn't dark enough for you? You want to make Batman 3 into a cartoon like Batman Beyond? Is that 'dark' enough for you? LOL. Come on man, you're making a spectacle of yourself. i don't believe BB is/was any darker than TDK. So IF they make batman 3, AND IF they make the third film darker than TDK, this third INSTALLMENT, not PREQUEL, will be darker than BB and TDKR.

"I said I'm fine with the third installment being TDKR if they planned to go that direction " No, you said "if they transitioned into the darker world of TDKR and Batman Beyond, then I would be down for this being the third installment in 6-10 years". So you said IF they transitioned into the darker world of TDKR, you would be fine with TDKR being the THIRD INSTALLMENT. Are you sure you are as literate as you claim? Don't you see your original statement as something of a tautology? You know, circular? So if they go into the direction of TDKR, you're fine with them ging in the direction of TDKR? Maybe you are literate, but you can't express yourself worth sh*t.

Like how you turned your sh*tty argument into 3 sh*t-filled replies, only one of which actually addresses what I said, which was almost correct, but your self-defeating need to over-compensate even managed to f*ck that one up. ""I said I'm fine with the third installment being TDKR if they planned to go that direction " No, you said "if they transitioned into the darker world of TDKR and Batman Beyond, then I would be down for this being the third installment in 6-10 years"." Way to learn quotes, asshat! That's exacty what I meant, just a rephrase. Again, your age is showing. 12 year olds are incapable of thinking abstractly, did you know that? Retards too. So which are you? I mean, you're the clusterf*ck who can't even decide how to argue. And if you're debating what I said, and the authorial intent behind my words, then there really is no argument for you is there? You basically spelled it out for your own, poor, retarded self just up there? Talk about "tautology", a word that has no place at all in this argument, since my statement stands- as a SERIES, not just a trilogy, then I'm fine with them mining Miller's story. You know, for someone that understands code, you would appreciate logic a little more... And as if I needed more proof that you are incapable of thinking abstractly, you actually think that they will literally adapt TDKR. To end with one of your own quotes: "Thank god YOU aren't making films." BTW, the whole atmosphere and nature of the reboot WAS by Miller's influence, not Nolan. I'd be happy to point you in the direction of the links if you're busy reaching for a bag of cheetoes instead.

Installment: any of several parts, as of a serial story, appearing at intervals. Thus, TDKR could only work if it is the FOURTH installment, or WB loses its little mind and dumps Nolan or his replacement. What you asked and/or implicitly supported is both highly unlikely, and damned stupid. begin sarcasm: Contrarily, IF warner brothers goes in the lighthearted direction of the Care Bears, I'm down with them going in that direction. In fact, I'm in favor of them going in any direction whatsoever. Like bugmenot, I can't think for myself. lol

Some of the inspiration for batman Begins was lifted from Batman Year One, and yet The Dark Knight was somewhat inspired by The Long Halloween, NOT a miller graphic novel but one from Jeph Loeb. Do you argue against these facts? Lifting ideas isn't the same as a literal translation. Do you agree? They, the Nolan brothers, lifted ideas from both sources, but neither film is a literal translation either of Batman year One or The Long Halloween. Let me set you straight: Snyder certainly did not say he wanted to lift ideas from TDKR, he talked about making it into a literal translation of the comic book. Big difference from what his remarks imply and what Nolan actually did with BB and TDK.

Let me ask a simple question. What is an installment, to you? If I say I want to see a sixth installment of the Superman films in twenty years, what does that mean? Exactly? Don't YOU agree that my statement means I want to wait wo decades to see another superman film, seeing as their are five installments already? So if you say 'Im down with third installment in 6 to ten years', don't you agree that you've stated you'd wait that long for another film, with no other installments in between? Why can't you understand what you've written?

'That's exacty what I meant, just a rephrase." I didn't rephrase anything, I posted what you typed. Do you now dispute the record? And a tautology is something like this: the sky is blue, because the sky is blue. No explanation, no reasoning. Just like when you said " if they go in this direction, I'm fine with them going in this direction because that's ok with me". In 6 to ten years. Do you dispute you said any of this? Snyder never said he wanted to make TDKr into a film, he just says he is interested in the comic. A lot of people are interested in it, and he admitted WB isn't going in that direction. youthen jumped the gun, claiming that if WB changes Batman's tone, in 6-10 years, you're ok with that. Where did you even get that WB or Snyder or anyone else is even remotely seriously looking at TDKR? Without any justification, you three your hat into a non-existent never-happening movie, for the THIRD INSTALLMENT of Batman, in 6-10 years?

Snyder et al needs to only make these comments like the one above AFTER nolan wraps his Batman interest. It gets the idiots tossing support without thinking. Wait for the 'inevitable' third film, possibly the last, and then after a several years, fans and WB may find some acceptance with a live action TDKR, but obvioously not while there is such a clamor for Nolan style realism and cash pouring in.

First, as a service to all of us, and for some f*ckin' clarity, I'd kindly ask you to stop using the word "literal", since it's clear that you're pretty biased, and STILL, STILL, STILL, are showing that you can't think for sh*t. You're retreading your own f*cking arguments and it's really getting tiring. As I said before, if it's a question of authorial intent, then the question is not "do I understand what I have written" cause obviously I do, but do you, or you wouldn't behave like such a retard. Or that could just be in your very nature. I'll refer you back to my "conditional statement" earlier, where, if they WANT to go the TDKR route, it would be good to wait a few years for the REALISM factor. But seeing as how you are incapable of understanding - I bet paint dries faster than you comprehend things - that's how I see it; that's what I said. What exactly makes that so hard for you? It's not like it's f*cking rocket science. IF they go in that direction, then under those circ*mstances, I'll go along with it. There, it's easy as pie. Take a breather for a few hours. I mean, I probably won't be here waiting for you, but if your head's starting to hurt, it might not be a bad idea. Ok, hot shot, since you like being LITERAL about things, where does it exactly say that he'd be literally adapting the movie?
"Snyder certainly did not say he wanted to lift ideas from TDKR, he talked about making it into a literal translation of the comic book. Big difference from what his remarks imply and what Nolan actually did with BB and TDK."
Hint: It doesn't. SURE, he suggests it. But that's not literal and thus is not good enough proof, so by your own "logic" (ooh, cringe! There's that word again!), he never exactly said that. I made a guess earlier that you weren't ever good at English since you couldn't analyze the meaning behind people's words. Saying WB won't let Snyder make a movie from their current cash cow because one book has a fifty year old BM and a President Reagan doesn't mean that's exactly how they'll do it! For f*ck's sake! Are you THAT f*cking blind? Really, I'm beginning to lose patience with you. If you're that f*cking stupid that you can't stop yourself from saying things that prove what I'm talking about, then you've made me a believer.

"I'll refer you back to my "conditional statement" earlier, where, if they WANT to go the TDKR route, it would be good to wait a few years for the REALISM factor" That's not what you said. Unlike web forums powered by invision software, you can't edit your posts. Here's what you said, again, for the last f*cking time: "I also gave it thought and yes, if they transitioned into the darker world of TDKR and Batman Beyond, then I would be down for this being the third installment in 6-10 years." TDKR as the third installment, in 6-10 years? You said nothing about 'realism' or a 'few years' in that quote. You said 'transitioned' and that could mean the move merely from TDK to TDKR, in '6 to ten years'. That IS what you said, literally. LOL. Hurl all the insults you want, defend that 'bugmenot' internet nick with all the tenacity you can muster, but YOU are the fool who posted the above quote. You simply didn't make your opinion clear, or you are trying to take back something foolish you typed.

It's a better idea than giving the franchise back to Joel Schumacher ...

I'd rather see Mike Judge direct the next 'installment' than have Schumacher return, with his homosexual connotations and Schwarzeneggar gaffes and laughs. Good god, what was DC thinking?

Omg. Intelligence is not written into your brain is it? How arrogant of you to parade on like you know what I mean. Keep making the same mistake, the same fallacy, over and over and over again. I take back nothing of what I said here. I don't need an edit feature. What I said still stands, and only proves you're trying tired, old ways to pretend I f*cked up. Earlier, in a poor attempt as usual for you to be witty, you asked me, "what an installment" means to me. At the time, and now, I still can't tell if you are f*cking serious. For the record, I happen to agree with the textbook definition, so if you disagree with me, you must disagree with Webster too: an installment is ANY in a collection or series of works. It's as simple as that. Second, what the f*ck does transition mean to you? I also go along with the dictionary on this one, so honestly, if that isn't literal enough for you, you keep changing your standards as YOU'RE the one trying to distract from taking back what you said. I see trolls do it all the time. As I have "OPINED" for you before, your whole idea that you somehow know what I mean better than me is a fallacy. Are you God? Then shut the f*ck up. And please stop acting like you're the well venerated one and that I'm somehow crucifying your dignity here. Please, you clusterf*ck. You deserve everything you get.

Oh, FYI- I paraphrased it, so if your next move is to trot your ass over to dictionary.com, I'll prevent you from making another fallacious argument and save myself some headaches as well. Now STFU!

"How arrogant of you to parade on like you know what I mean." I only know what you type. You typed "third installment" within the next "6 to ten years". And you think YOU are crucifying me? LOl. You are pretentious and arrogant. I'm sitting here laughing at you, along with some other people, who've read what you wrote, and they all agree that you said, without a doubt, that you wanted to see a 'third installment, in 'six to ten years'. Come on, i don't play nice, but at least I'm honest. can't you extend me the same courtesy?

"an installment is ANY in a collection or series of works." Sure it is, but you SPCIFIED the installment. Come on man, face up to what you said. you said "THIRD" installment. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the THIRd installment in the HP series, and TDK is the SECOND installment in the Nolan Batman film collection. You even said so here "I for one don't think it would be possible to top TDK, as 2nd installments are usually the best act." So, you recognized TDK as the second installment, not just ANY installment but a SPECIFIC one, and then you go on to talk about the THIRD INSTALLMENT in SIX TO TEN YEARS. See, you can't crucify me, because I'm not the fool riding the ass.

Zack Snyder would be a good choice but I don't want ANY Robin in the next Batman movie. Nor do I want a Penguin. Batman needs to kill The CGI Joker in the first 10 minutes of the movie now since he's wanted for murders he didn't commit anyways. ...and move on from there.

Snyder definitely comes to mind when I think about The Dark Knight Returns. Personally, I would love to see that be his next project; but I know that the timing is completely off with 'The Dark Knight' having just been released, most people wouldn't understand that it was a different series from Nolan's. Someday, I hope Snyder does get the opportunity. Dawn of the Dead was a great remake, 300 was a fantastic adaption, and Watchmen looks like it will be my favorite movie ever...the man knows what he's doing.
