Joseph Gordon-Levitt will portray Alberto Falcone in The Dark Knight Rises.

Interesting choice. Totally a different direction than what was being speculated. I like it though. Long Halloween is one of my favorite comic book stories, ever.

What is everyone's o-pin-yun on Nolan's Bat films? I've read some comments that his work really isn't all that original and in some cases, is totally off. Yet box-office revenue doesn't lie so he must doing something right.

 

I've enjoyed his films but I enjoy them as yet another modernization of the classic story, re-telling the tale for a new generation. I think he's straying close to Raimi territory by having too many villains in the upcoming film. Doing so splits your focus and makes it hard to give ample screen time to all your villains so the audience can either root for, against, or sympathize with them. DK works because of the obvious focus on Joker and Dent's behaviour/actions were built upon before becoming Two-Face. But should risk it again?

I don't think having multiple villains in any given movie is bad, in and of itself.

 

Telling multiple origin stories for those villains, however, is, in and of itself, bad (see Batman Returns). One thing the Superman movies did right: They spent not one second of time on an origin for Lex Luthor.
