Holy Poor Planning, Batman

The Sun-Times has a quick write up on debate over whether or not there is a sequel to Batman Begins in the mix. And it might possibly be in Chicago again. But it looks like it will definitely have some continuity problems. From the article:

As for other Bat-rumors, Roven denies he’s searching for a new, younger Joker to play Batman’s nemesis in the sequel. “The Internet has the Joker cast already,” Roven says shaking his head. “The ‘Net has also cast the Riddler. It’s just all rumors. … The truth is we haven’t even decided who will be the next villain.”

He says the nod to the Joker in the current movie “was our way of tipping our hats to the very first Batman movie”

That last line obviously really reads “We shot Batman Begins as a prequel to the Batman Trilogy, and had no intention of doing a prequel sequel. Because that would be lame. But then we saw the big pile of money. So this seems like a good enough excuse for our ‘nod to the Joker’. That makes sense, right?”
