He contradicted himself big time with that. At the time and shortly after the releases of his movies he kept stating that people who want a serious Batman should get a life, that Batman is a comic book not 'tragic ' book, that he grew up with the 50s Batman and thats what he liked the most and wanted to imitate, and that a Batman movie cant possibly be serious.
Only YEARS after he got the beating for his sugary Batman movies he started the whole 'I wanted to do Year One' talk
