Batman return of the Caped Crusaders

Batman return of the Caped Crusaders

For the better part of this year (2016), Adam West and Burt Ward had been telling fans of the 1960s hit TV series Batman about an upcoming project they have been working on. Rumors abounded as to what it could be, and people guessed anything from cameo appearances to a new television series.

Last week the news hit that the original Batman and Robin (Dynamic Duo) would team up once more for an animated film, also involving Julie Newmar as Catwoman. We now have the official trailer to give us insight into the exciting new project.

The trailer starts off with a regrouping of the Caped Crusader’s most famous villains: the Riddler, the Joker, Penguin and Catwoman. Batman and Robin team up to stop them, chasing them around in the Batmobile before stumbling into trouble.

Earlier this year, West promised the film would be the Batman and Robin we remember from the 1960s TV series.

Based on the trailer, he wasn’t lying. The film looks like it has the same camp as the show, complete with punchy title cards and comically unnecessary labels. 

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader will be available on Digital HD format October 11 and Blu-Ray Combo Pack November 1 2016.

"I don’t think our Batman, our Gotham, lends itself to that kind of cross-fertilization," said Nolan. "It goes back to one of the first things we wrangled with when we first started putting the story together: Is this a world in which comic books already exist? Is this a world in which superheroes already exist?"

He continued: "If you think of ‘Batman Begins’ and you think of the philosophy of this character trying to reinvent himself as a symbol, we took the position — we didn’t address it directly in the film, but we did take the position philosophically — that superheroes simply don’t exist. If they did, if Bruce [Wayne] knew of Superman or even of comic books, then that’s a completely different decision that he’s making when he puts on a costume in an attempt to become a symbol. It’s a paradox and a conundrum, but what we did is go back to the very original concept and idea of the character. In his first appearances, he invents himself as a totally original creation."

So the question is: Would Nolan’s Batman be different if he knew that Superman existed?

 



The brainchild of the series is non-other than Smallville’s executive producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson and Supernatural‘s executive producer McG is also behind the project. The CW has put in a pilot commitment for the show, viewed as a potential replacement for Smallville, which may be hanging up its super-flying cape after eight seasons great seasons. If Smallville continues, The Graysons will work as a companion series.

Whose interested in seeing the boyhood of the Boy Wonder?

 



"What’s interesting is that info seems to be originating from folks who worked on ‘TDK’ behind the scenes — set builders, stuntmen, film crew, etc. — in Chicago," Batman-on-Film said. "[What I’m hearing from crew members out of Chicago] is that ‘BATMAN 3’ goes into pre-production in February to shoot next summer."

At this point, director Christopher Nolan is said to be "on vacation" and has yet to sign a deal.

 

Here’s Warner’s description of the film:

"The follow-up to Batman Begins, The Dark Knight reunites director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on crime. With the help of Lt. Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves effective, but soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker, who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces Batman closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante."

Now, E-Online had the chance to speak to Hammer ("The Reaper"), who said that he has no intentions of comparing himself to Christian Bale’s Batman. "That guy’s got his sh*t down," he said. Hammer went on to explain that the film was supposed to shoot in Australia, where he and his castmates suffered through several months of physical training. "I would spend hours training with actual guns to prepare me for this stuff," he said. "It was very intense. Our workout regimens were so rigorous that most of us would vomit." He added, "We weren’t trying to get ourselves aesthetically good looking. We were trying to get ready for the demands of shooting."

The film went as far as to actually get the cast into their suits. Hammer spoke of the first time he put on the entire Batman ensemble, which features functioning equipment, including trademark Batman weapons like spring-loaded titanium Bat-erangs. "I was looking down, and I was thinking, This is the best," Hammer said of the first time he put on the Batman suit. "Then I stood up, and they turned me around, and I faced a mirror—there was Batman. But then it hit me like a ton of bricks — it’s not just Batman, it’s me!"

Why was Hammer training to use a gun? Was the movie going to introduce us to the 1960’s Batman, when he actually packed heat? Because if I’m not mistaken, Batman is against the use of guns these days. And what other things in this movie will take us back to our original heroes?
