Batman Reboot V2by mateorondon | created - 15 Jan 2015 | updated - 15 Jun 2015 | Public
I started a batman reboot some months ago and I thought it could be better so I'm rewriting it in a saga
Plot of the saga: Bruce Wayne is 45 years old and he is about to return to be Batman after the last time Batman was seen 5 years ago and thought to be dead but he will narrate his story too, so we will be seeing two Batmen in two different times.
Titles: Batman: Gotham Heights Batman: Eternal Knight Batman: Head of the Demon Batman: Hunt Batman: Gotham Uprising Batman: Last Laugh
The story will be divided in two Older Batman's story (TDK Returns) and Bataman's story It will be very dark and Batman will be more of a detective The first three films will concentrate mostly in Wes Bentley's Batman and the other three in Kevin Porter's Batman Joker is the main villain in the saga Dick Grayson will appear as Robin in ep 1 later as Nightwing We won't go through the origin story or Batman's first years, just little clips of his origin and as his first year as Batman Most of the rogues gallery will already be introduced Carrie Kelley will have a more updated suit Older Dick Grayson will have a much more armored suit Oliver Queen will only appear few times Superman will fight Batman in last laugh (TDK Returns part) Joker will die in last laugh (The Dark Knight Returns part) We will see a flashback of the Killing Joke in Last Laugh (Batman story) Ra's al ghul will be the main villain in head of the demon Damian Wayne easter egg will appear in Head of the Demon In Batman Hunt Commissioner Gordon will be assassinated by The Joker and he'll blame Batman In Batman Hunt in the TDKR story Batman will be hunted by the police after the murder of Comissioner Gordon Old Nightwing will sacrifice for Batman when he is surrounded by the police and he gets caught Bob the Goon from Batman 1989 will return again as Joker's goon/sidekick but more as a guy who gets him information and fights.
Changes from the original stories and comics:
TDK Returns story will happen when Batman is 46 Carrie Kelley will be a computer genius Carrie Kelley's father was in jail and his mother died, she was living at her own, later she moved with Bruce. Carrie Kelley's inspiration to become Robin will be totally different than in TDK Returns and will be explained more. Alfred will be a little younger and will be a retired MI6 agent. His father had been working for the Wayne family and he was hired as a bodyguard/butler/grounds keeper for the family upon his father's retirement. Bruce will meet Ra's before he was Batman (like in Batman Begins), he would also meet Talia when Ra's puts him to fight with his best warrior, Talia, though when they fought her face was covered, after the fight Bruce wins and she shows her face to him. Commissioner Loeb never existed. Dick Grayson wasn't adopted by Batman, after his parents were murdered Bruce wanted to give him a father or a father figure like Bruce had Alfred but Dick was too old to be adopted so he was hired as his personal assistant, later Dick discovered Bruce was Batman and Bruce took him as Robin. Damian was never born
Batman: Gotham Heights- Plot and Story
The movie will begin with Older Bruce Wayne in the bat cave opening a box with the bat suit, while he opens it he starts narrating who was batman, and we get to a flashback where Bruce (Wes) suits up and gets into the bat mobile, with Older Bruce narrating who was batman, what did he do. Then there will be a scene like the intro of Batman TAS where Batman (Wes) will fight the bank robbers.

Today Bob is Joker's right hand man, but everyday he is just crazier and closer to the Joker.)
