Re: What did Christopher Nolan think of the other Batman movies?
I actually have read numerous times that Forever was how Schumacher dealt with a script that he wasn't crazy about. I've read that the studio and Goldsman are actually more to blame for the farcical nature of the latter 2 films than Joel. He himself has stated that he would have loved to adapt YEAR ONE.
Basically what has happened in American comics is people have been trying to write their own versions of Dark Knight and Watchmen for the past 20 years.
The point that comics are at now is nothing compared to where they once were. And it'll never get back there either. - Kurosawa
