Jonathan Nolan Speaks On Number of Villains In Film

Co-writer on The Dark Knight Rises Jonathan Nolan has a different opinion on the “too many villains syndrom” some movies tend to have, “I don’t believe in any of that s**t!,” and it is as simple as that speaking in a interview with Sci-Fi Magazine.  He believes that it is simply nothing more than a cheap excuse for people to throw at a movie for being “bad” as in Spider-Man 3 or The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen.  He states, “It is just a question of whether you can pull it off. That’s what it comes down to. I think a narrative is only as cluttered as you let it be.”

Spoken like a true writer!  As a screenwriter myself, I agree with everything Jonathan has to say about the subject.  Stories are just like babies, if you take your time and raise it well then it should most likely turn out a good.  But if you just half ass things and don’t put your all, then disastrous things can happen.  What do you guys think about this?  Sound off in the comments section below and for the full article you can pick up this months copy of the magazine.

      Haha Godfather 3 was not that great, so if this movie is not that great it will already be at Godfather level. It should surpass Godfather motherfuckas!

        We averagely all the good father movies was either rated a 9 or above out of 10 on iMDB. Generally they are really great films.

    Godfather 3 was good, but we dont like it that much because it represents the decadence of the Corleone family, and the tragedy of Michael Corleone’s life.
    Are we gonna say the same for Bruce Wayne?
