Default Re: Did anyone see 1989's movie in theaters?

The enormous shift in tone that Batman received in mass media and the hytpe for Batman in 89 isnt something that can be explained in words. It was massive, and dont forget the only Batman mass media had ever seen before was the blue guardian with ever present Robin. B89 was such a massive shift. Just imagine after only knowing blue batman from cartoons and the show, or even - visually-from comic books at the time, to see for the first time an all black, body armored Batman surrounded by mist and dark 1940s version of NYC. Wrote briefly about that -
