5 Ideas For The Inevitable New Batman Movie Trilogy

With the release of The Dark Knight Rises Christopher Nolan’s Bat-trilogy comes to an end, which of course means it’s time to immediately start working on the next Batman trilogy!

Once they’re done with their caviar food fights and Uncle Scrooge-style money swimming, the bosses at Warner Bros. really ought to consider one of the following five Batman trilogy ideas…

Movie producers seem to be super afraid of Robin, but they really shouldn’t be.

Movie 1 – The first movie would be based on Chuck Dixon, Scott Beatty and Javier Pulido’s Robin: Year One. Dick Grayson is taken in by Bruce Wayne after his parents die and becomes Robin. As Robin tackles villains like Mad Hatter and Two-Face his bond with Batman and Alfred grow.

Movie 2 – Based on A Death in the Family. Dick Grayson has grown up and is trying to forge his own identity as Nightwing. Batman takes on Jason Todd as the new Robin, but the two clash, and ultimately Jason is killed by the Joker.
