Agreed, 110%. To this day, I still feel the Animated DC Universe of recent years is probably the best DC Comics on screen interpretation ever. Dini and Timm treated the characters in a serious and respectful and faithful manner while still maintaining a decent dose of the fantasy in a perfect balance. That's what I would like to see in a live action movie series.
