Re: Has Batman hurt the genre where costumes are concerned?
Batman's traditional garb would have looked ridiculous within the context of B89 as well as Nolan's films. Taking liberties is not necessarily a bad thing, you just have to hope that those liberties make sense and add to the quality of the character and plot.
