Two Truths and a Lie

Chickity check it out, y'all. This is me blogging two days in a row!

And we kick today in the short pants with a little game they used to play as an ice breaker at functions where people don't know each other well...like prison holding cells. It's called "Two Truths and a Lie," and today's celebrity host is none other than Chris "I may have made the best movie of the year but now people are suddenly not mentioning me for an Oscar even though I deserve one" Nolan. As you may have heard, when he's not directing mind-bending original films, Nolan dabbles in superheroes. That makes it sound like he touches Aquaman in the green speedo area. What I mean is, he's gearing up to direct The Dark Knight Rises , a title that's only silly if Catwoman is in it. Get it? Anyhoodle, Nolan had this to say about the upcoming Bat-flick and the upcoming Superman re-re-start. I'm going to paraphrase here, but he said that this IS his last Bat-endeavor and that even though he and David Goyer "had an idea they couldn't believe wasn't being explored by Warner Bros" for Superman, they are going to stay hands off and let Zack Snyder do his own thang up in that Superman bizness. Those things seem to be fairly straightforward (sorry, slow news day) and honest.

Now the lie. They're bringing Heath Ledger back for the next Bat-a-palooza using CGI for a cameo.

Yeah, I know, even the Joker seems to be saying "Ninja, please" on this one. I get the concept, because they want to link the movies together into a woven trilogy. And there is a way to do that now, as I've stated several times before. What's that? You want to hear my brilliant idea again? Okay, if you insist.

All you have to do is start the movie with a woman who picks up the phone and is told something to the effect of "You're on." She then becomes Harley Quinn, taking over what the Joker was trying to do. Basically, we find out that she was the next wave of attack the whole time, as The Joker knew he would either be killed by Batman as he wanted or that Batman would stay good and only capture him. This was his plan B. You can then just show a locked, sealed Arkham door with "The Joker" written on it and that would be that. I cannot see good taste and reason allowing Nolan to CGI this thing. Animated zombification isn't the way to treat a friend. That's a rule to live by.
