Default Re: How long before the fan community turns on the Nolan films?

Kevin Williamson wrote that pop culture has become the politics of our times (paraphrased.) It is accurate: there are conservative thinkers who do not want a film series, while the liberal element welcomes it. And, once the status quo changes, there is a reversal of opinion.

There is going to be a backlash against Nolan's films, as there was when Webb took over, and there will be when someone else takes over.

Nolan's films are going to remain my favorite live action adaptation of Batman. Does that mean they are perfect and any criticism towards them is without validity? No. Art is a subjective medium, and everybody's opinion is valid.

And I will leave with this: Maguire's Spider-Man is the only one, by my reckoning. ASM has better writing, design, and villains, but watching the written Peter was an exceptionally painful and cruel punishment. Hopefully someone else will handle the character's creation next time around.
