You have described the best way to adapt things. Take the core concepts and shape them into a greats tory.

Sure, many people come and say 'I love Nolan because he is so faithful to the comics.' Well no, he's about as faithful as anyone else. But the reason why Batman, Joker, Two-Face, Gordon and such are so great in his movies is not because he duplicates everything that happens in coics but because he envisions the characters as if they were real.

I agree. Each director has his good points.

I think that too and I love that enormously.

Same could be said about The Godfather, Davinci's Last Supper could do it with two apostles less, but sometimes movies are not to please audiences entirely at the first sight.
