Drool... a visit to the set of the new "Batman Begins" movie can be found right here at Newsweek's web site. Man, this is sounding better and better all the time. "Memento" director Christopher Nolan clearly has his heart in the right place. And I love this line from the article: "The new chapter … is called "Batman Begins," presumably because "Batman Sucked The Last Time So We're Starting Over" sounds too clunky." As someone who has STILL never managed to watch the unholy abomination that was 1997's "Batman & Robin" all the way through (never made it to theater, rented it, caught bits on TV), I fully look forward to a Schwarzenegger-free installment next year.

Another great line that has me looking forward to star Christian Bale's take on the caped crusader: "On this particular day, Bale has been in the Batsuit for nine hours, and his brain is starting to boil. But he keeps up his good humor. After one take, Nolan instructs him to try a line again with more intensity, and Bale answers with a riff inspired by "This Is Spinal Tap": "How much more Batman can you get? The answer is: none. None more Batman."
