The curious thing is not why you keep hearing the truth but why you keep refusing to accept it.

So. No.
The Frank Millerís Batman is deppressive.

As many director, Burton chose the best elements of different eras that worked into the same context.

Or they could have searched amongst the old newspapers files.
