Re: What about a Batman live-action tv series?
It really comes down to money; not cost so much as profit. There's little doubt that an amazing show could be produced on a TV budget, even a full-season network TV budget (which is more than I can say for most A-list superheroes). There's also little doubt that a TV show could be hugely popular. But if WB's accountants calculate that more money can be made with the movies, it'll never happen. If the opposite were the case, if the numbers suggested that a TV show could make as much or more than the movies, WB would make it in a heartbeat.
