Btw, heres an example from top of my head from the 70s. Batman was pretty much like Bale is in Nolan's movies since the 70s. This is from 1971's Brave and the Bold #93
There are many bronze age elements to Bale. But the bronze age Batman was more than just rage and all.
He was a Batman that had no problem making out with babes while wearing a cowl
or qupping every now and then

or coming to the apartment of half naked babes that he's conflicted with as both Bruce Wayne and Batman
Oh and of course Kilmer was the only actor to sport the hairy chest like the bronze age hairy chested batgod. It's those little subtle quirks among many more in the movie that remind of bronze age Bats in BF. There is some "new look" Batman there too most definitely but I think the bronze age elements are most prevalent in my mind when watching him n BF.
I enjoy comic book adaptations but I'm a comic book fan first and foremost. Not a comic book movie fan.
