Agreed, I'm not really a fan of the Nolan Batmans, mostly because they were dark for the sake of being dark, whereas Burton's films were at least fun to watch and not relentlessly dark. That's not to say that Heath Ledger didn't have an interesting take on Joker, but I'll go for Jack Nicholson's version any time.I never loved CNs Batman like I did TBs.. The voice they chose for C Bale was the most outlandish cartoon voice to date and I never warmed to his Bruce.. I think I just can't see past his American Psycho roll which was Ace by the way.
Heath just ate that role in TDN the scene when he blew up the hospital was fantastic as was his licky dog out the window scenes in Gotham.. Imagine all the Gifs and memes which would never have happened if another actor had bombed as Joker!
I loved R Pats Batman having a love of sleuth type movies I enjoyed the space it was given and hey not all Detective stories get to solve their cases and I think in most Bat stories you never get a sense of closure.. Or the villain is finished, more a they slope off back to their lair or get detained.
The most realistic and plausible apart from a few scenes of super human strength..
It's one of those movies I can see myself catching at any point and watch it through.
Looking forward to how he evolves as this is The Bat year 2 so he's still chomping at the bit.
I don't mind the core characters being re used especially in the way they have so far...
It reminds me of when an artist made those lifelike sculptures of Beavis, and Butthead.. Creepy but hyper realistic.
I will say though Burgess Meridith will always be my Penguin...
