We all understand Nolan's take on the Batman universe and the focus on gritty realism, while that makes the story more believable you lose a lot of the more fantastical elements of Batman canon.
He already said that things like Robin and Clayface and the like are not going to be in his films...but I would still love to see his take on them. I wonder what him and his brother could do with characters like Poison Ivy or Robin. I think if he were given his own 12 issue series where
they can put a Nolan brothers spin on the Whole Batman universe we could get something really great.
I say he should be forced ( or asked politely do one)...does anyone else share my desire to see this or am I alone?
The point is that it shouldn't be like a standard comic book, so they should use a comic book vet to do the majority of the work. Nolan and his brother wrote the script for TDK they should write the script for the comic.
As for the art....maybe Jim Lee every thing he draws flies off the shelf
No, writing a screenplay and writing a comic book are to drastically different things. I love the Dark Knight as much as everyone else but he had to change the batman story up for movie purposes. I am not sure it would work completely right in comic book form. Comic are supposed to be more "over the top".
Plus why would he, he wouldn't make anywhere near the kinda bank he is making doing movies.
Maybe one of the other writers like Goyer or Johnthan nolan would be up for the job though.
Writing a script for a comic and writing a general script for a comic run are different but they have similarities. And I would hope Nolan was capable enough to handle it,... The dude from My chemical Romance can write a decent comic, I sure Nolan and his brother can give it the old college try.
Yes comics are supposed to be over the top....that is the point. He can't address certain issues about the Batman universe in his films, but since it is a comic you can have a somewhat realistic take on those "over the top" elements.
Of course he would make as much money as making a 180 million dollar film, but it wouldn't take nearly as long and isn't nearly as labor intensive. They put out weekly comics, if someone came to you and said write a 22 page story and we will pay you several thousand dollars...would you really turn it down?
No but i am poor, i'd do it for 20 bucks. Nolan is rich. Writing a comic book that he would have to shell out every week would take away from the things he makes his money doing.
Plus i doubt Nolan can draw and even if he is just writing the dialogue he still has to think like an artist to do comic books.
I am not saying he should switch careers it would just be a 12 issue arc.And have you ever read a comic...You writing the dialogue shouldn't be a problem. Read The Boys or Blankets the art fits the dialogue not the other way around. He wont have a problem, stop trying to think of them.
