"Considering there were rumblings about a four-hour assembly cut of The Batman, it's a little disappointing to hear that we're only getting two deleted scenes totalling six minutes. There's always a chance we'll see more down the line, of course, but this is clearly going to be it for now."Drat! I can only guess they either want to release a Super-duper-mega-bells-and-whistles special edition later down the line, or they want to repurpose some of the material for the sequels. Or both.
I think this scene adds substance to Oz‘s character and what his ambitions are. Additionally i love to see more of Collin Farrell as Oz he did came a little short in the movie in my opinion.
How were you able to pull off the Sin City visual effect like that?
I love it! Will it be entirely Black and White?
The scene where Riddler kills the Mayor seems to be a really popular removal. I'm curious to hear your reasoning for keeping it in!
Given that this film was heavily influenced/inspired by Se7en, and we don't ever actually see any of John Doe's kills, it felt weird to me to see Riddler right out of the gate.
You make some valid points! I don't LOVE the scene, but I watched the film 3 times in one week the after the first time I saw it, so it clearly didn't bother me THAT much lol.Being influenced by something is fine but it doesn't have to be a carbon copy of the film. I personally liked contrasting the intro of the hero with the intro of the villain. The scene doesn't show much of him but enough to be intrigued. And there's two points to consider...
Also that scene is important for a specific aspect of my edit, which I'm not revealing at this point...
- If we don't see him and only his killing, mirroring the movie Seven, it would mean that he is already the criminal mastermind we know from the comics, which he isn't. Just like we're witnessing Batman's beginning (two years on the job is not much), we're also seeing the beginning of The Riddler and if he returns in future films, he will hopefully be smarter and learned from his mistakes.
- We only knew it was the Riddler because of all the marketing and trailers. If you would've gone into the movie without having seen anything of it beforehand, would you have guessed that this was supposed to be The Riddler?
I like it A litte more contrast would nail the B/W look in my opinion.
