Default Re: What did Christopher Nolan think of the other Batman movies?

As for Nolan's influences I tried to gather as much as I could with others -

Forever admittedly did well with their research on their 70s, its the characterization of Batman I cant seem to find a match of.
The funny thing is that the only thing that actually does remind me of the bronze age in that movie outside of the Dick and Bruce dynamic through most of the movie (very reflective of the Robin goes to college era) is Kilmer's Batman. Everything else seems so much more silver agey especially the villains with Two-Face being more Paul Sloane in embracing his crime boss status than Harvey Kent (Dent). But it really is a melting pot.

Like the car design in that movie is a mid 90's take on the golden age batmobile but then you have a 90's comic looking Batboat. I found more silver age than bronze or golden age in that movie though for sure. Things like "drag queen" Riddler and "Oh No! it's boiiiiiiiiling aciiiiiiiiid" are just much more in line with the quirky nature of the silver age comics.

I enjoy comic book adaptations but I'm a comic book fan first and foremost. Not a comic book movie fan.
