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

Paul Dini is completely responsible for the modern Freeze and Mike Mignola did the quintessential design
If you're referring to the Mr. Freeze design from B:TAS, I always found the purple gloves weird.

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.
Oh, I stand corrected on the coin thing. It still doesn't make much sense in the context of the movie. Why is Batman carrying a bunch of silver dollars? Did he know he was going to be in that situation?

Agreed. When the thugs run in the alley when they see him, I don't really buy it because Val Kilmer's Batman doesn't seem to do anything that would scare people. I can buy criminals being scared ****less of Batman as portrayed by Michael Keaton or Christian Bale, because they make an effort to be intimidating, which Val Kilmer never did.

Fan of Christopher Nolan's Batman!
