Re: How many years should WB wait before making a Batman reboot?
I hate the Begins origin. It makes Batman look like he learned almost everything from a bunch of ninjas after he'd already grown up. What happened to the child and teenage Bruce who trained under dozens of masters to specialize in everything from escape artistry to tracking to bomb defussion because he was dedicated to becoming the ultimate crime fighter? You know all the things he needed to master to be the world's greatest crime fighter?
So an adult Bruce Wayne is a lost puppy until Ras finds him and takes him to Ninja Mountain for a few months and suddenly Bruce is ready to be the world's greatest crime fighter? Nonsense. Bruce commits to hardcore training very soon after his parents are shot. It's because of this obsessive drive and varied training since childhood that he's becomes so good.
