It was never a big secret that Gary Oldman wasn’t keen on being in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy but now, it seems, he’s not convinced Zack Snyder’s take on Gotham’s Guardian is going to be all that…
He’s about at the minute promoting Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and while talking to Yahoo! the topic of Snyder’s movie came up: “They want to keep it going. Of course they do. But, it’s Superman yeah? Batman and Superman together? We shall see,” he said.
“The thing about Nolan, there was some grounding of reality to it. In our trilogy, and as fantastical and as big as the joker was, it was based [on reality]… we could relate to it.
“But now we’ve got a Batman and we’ve got a guy who can fly who’s an alien?! We’ll have to see… It’s got big shoes to fill”.
But he added: “I don’t mind, we had our moment in sun.”
So, is Oldman right? Is the concept too big? Or can Snyder do it? Let us know @Nerdfollowing and on Facebook
