I hope we don't see batman go from rookie to greatest detective but it's true then it truly is a standalone and DC has given up it's cinematic universe ambition.

@MyCoolYoung - Reeves said its a detective film so maybe instead of gadgets helping Bats do a lot of his deduction and investigative work, his mind alone will instead. He's young, not pilfering Wayne Ent for resources just yet. We might be seeing more of the detective side than the crime fighter early on. The beginnings of a great deductive mind.

Might be more deduction than high flying kicks and punches in this and I'm all for that.

Your source is IMDB? Yeah, I'm not taking this too seriously.

Also, the site is still broken to where non-editors can't publish articles. We get the error screen as soon as we hit "Preview".

@Darkknight2149 - IMDB Pro

@ComicBookPsycho -
I'm not familiar with that one. Does it have a better track record than regular IMDB, or should we take that with a grain of salt as well?

@Darkknight2149 - Per the article:

"Before we get to that, it's worth pointing out that IMDb Pro is a paid service and usually updated by those in the industry rather than some random fan looking to troll people."

Interesting stuff here.

So he was the lead Russian miner in Chernobyl, right? The dude who walked around in his birthday suit for most of his scenes?

Is it just me or are these recent revelations and the news from the past not matching up? Here’s news of an origin tale, yet he has almost a full roster of villains already? I know it’s possible, but seems a bit ambitious. I have a feeling we get Bruce coming back to Gotham after his years of training. It’s completely over ran with crime. Riddler is probably the mastermind behind all of the chaos.

idk if this has been said but ima say it. this is starting to sound like batman begins again, which has been done. i know the top dogs have said it's not going to be year 0 but sometime after. but really, what's the diff ? rookie batman, rookie gordon... w established rogues gallery... um, ok.

@hazapez - Maybe not show Bruce training overseas, or get into exactly why he chose to dress up as a giant bat. If Reeves doesn't take as much time to set-up the backstory, he may be able to avoid the Begins comparison.

@EmpressCipher - Ra's was already grounded enough to begin w anyway (heh, no pun intended) i.e. they removed the lazarus pits, merely alluded to it.

Jim Gordon has to be new to the GCPD. Same as in year one. Besides, I want to see Gordon fight. He is a tough guy.

HeraldNumber7 - 1/24/2020, 2:33 PM
i am skeptical of this news but if true, can Batman just be BATMAN, ffs?! 😭

Burton's take, while self-indulgent, at least got straight to business.
DannRamm113 - 1/24/2020, 2:42 PM
Why do people seem so sour on this potentially being partly in Batman's first year?

Like, I doubt we're getting a true origin, although lets face it, there's a 65% chance they're gonna show his parents getting shot in the alley. That's almost as necessary as Robert Pattinson saying "I am Batman"

NinnesMBC - 1/24/2020, 2:57 PM
I think a challenge the movie will face is showing us the transition of Bruce's "rookie" days of Batman as he goes to become the greatest detective at the same time that Gordon becomes the Commissioner in the span of 2 hours.
