Did ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ actually set us up for a Nightwing film.
Obligatory SPOILER warning for both some comic book plot points and the Dark Knight trilogy for the rest of this post.
A number of people have pointed out two things to us in regards to our last post on John Blake and The Dark Knight Rises, helpfully noting where our speculations may have gone astray.
Even though the Nolan trilogy is (somewhat loosely) based on the Knightfall sequence, elements of this last film were obviously harvested from Miller’s later work.
2) It’s more likely that John Blake (played by Joseph Gordon Levitt) will not be Batman as this is pretty confusing for audiences not already familiar with the various non Bruce Wayne Batman characters.
Following the events of the Zero Hour miniseries, he temporarily replaces Bruce Wayne as Batman, beginning in Robin #0 and extending throughout the Batman: Prodigal storyline.
Meanwhile, both Batman and Nightwing have a similar aesthetic, making a transition from the Dark Knight films to a Nightwing franchise visually seamless.
We don’t see Blake showing up in the batcave only to leave dressed in a gaudy Robin outfit.
Following Batman: Knightfall, Dick Grayson takes up the mantle of Batman as he considers himself to be Bruce Wayne’s prodigal son.
Given Nolan’s involvement in the upcoming Superman film, Man of Steel, this may be a way to even subtly weave these universes and stories together (even if it’s not explicitly done, we.e.
We wouldn’t have to see Nightwing share screentime with Clark Kent.) we’d definitely go see a Joseph Gordon Levitt Nightwing film.
In fact, we like this theory more than the Blake becomes Batman theory (proving once again that many of this blog’s readers continue to outsmart us) if only because the Dark Knight trilogy was given such finality and handled with such dark grace.
Maybe taking a decade off would be a good idea.) we doubt Nolan will take the helm on a Nightwing project, preferring to play a producer/writer role similar to his role with Superman.
Final thought: Doesn’t it just seem weird to bring in the character John Blake to begin with, three movies in, with someone solid like Gordon Levitt in the role, and then end the way the film does without building toward something like this.
The score forms part of the film’s soundtrack, which also usually includes dialogue and sound effects, and comprises a number of orchestral, instrumental or choral pieces called cues which are timed to begin and end at specific points during the film in order to enhance the dramatic narrative and the emotional impact of the scene in question.
