Gary Oldman isn’t convinced Batman V Superman will work…

July 15th, 2014 by Marc Comments

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

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”is written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
