This tutorial will present everything you need to know about new and old characters Batman’s cinematic world.
For many people Michael Keaton is still the best Batman and Tim Burton is the best director of a film about Dark Knight, but Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan have so far done a royal job. Neither the rest of the team is not bad, it is enough to recall Oscar winning Joker, deceased Heath Ledger, who managed by the quality of performance to oppose the great Jack Nicholson. Unlike Burton, who loves fairy tales, and Joel Schumacher, who loves abundance of colors, Nolan likes classic detective story of Batman, with an emphasis on technology, and detailed action figures. Speculation about what awaits us in this latest edition of the saga of Batman lasts for two years now, and during this time fans were trying to guess who will be back, who is the new villain and who will interpret the characters.
So we can read rumors about Phillip Seymour Hoffman who should play Penguin, Riddler and which was supposed to play Jim Carrey. Many were expecting return to of Joker and that it will be played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, while his concubines Harley Quinn – mad nurse who cared about the Joker in Arkham asylum – should play a number of actresses including Rachel McAdams and deceased Brittany Murphy. Of the above, there was Gordon-Levitt, with a somewhat different role. Another very popular rumor was about Batman’s assistant Robin. Nolan gave a very simple answer: if he is directing a movie about Batman, The Dark Knight is without a Robin. However, the new movie makes enough allies and opponents, so we move on to introduce the main protagonists..
Great Michael Caine will be playing Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne’s butler and practically surrogate father who is Batmans faithful helper, medic and a voice of reason.
Once one of the key people in Wayne Corporation, Lucius Fox is now a player in the shadows, and a laboratory dedicated to the development of inventions which are financed by the billionaires. Wayne needs Fox for his knowledge and discretion to select the best weapons and equipment of Batman, all under a veil of confidentiality. Morgan Freeman, its presence increases the already high quality of the cast.
Then there is Gary Oldman who is a great choice for playing methodical and gloomy police chief Gordon.
And finally the main villain of this film, Bane, a super powerful criminals whose goal is literally to break Batman in half. Bane is one of the fresh as Gotham City’s villains as he made his debut in comics only 1993rd His film incarnation is not too much detail explanation, Nolan has been explained as a giant Bane, battle the villain, with an emphasis on physical strength and destruction. While the Joker is archetype of chaos and crime driven madness, Bane is most focused on the destruction, he is perfectly trained warrior whose only visible weakness of dependence on analgesics, which absorbs through the pipe connected to a mask on his face. Nolan says that Bane precision attacks from breaking fingers and arm to break the skull and spine pulling opponents.
And ofcourse there is Catwoman. In the comics, Selina Kyle is a former prostitute from a bad side of Gotham City, which became a cat woman to defend girlfriends of the night from evil pimps, violent clients, and corrupt police. In Batman Returns, Burton presented her as a secretary who was thrown out the window by her evil boss Max Shreck (Christopher Walken), and was revived by the herd of cats. Then she was played by a super hot Michelle Pfeiffer in the latex, while Nolan decided for Anne Hathaway. Tim Burton also choosed her for the role, because she played the White Queen in his “Alice in Wonderland.” What is this version of Catwoman, and that Hathaway did get the role for now is a mystery.
