In my opinion, all these 'stupid-lazy-bad writing' comments are side-splitting. If there's aspect that a fanboy despises, it's automatically labeled **** or low quality. I literally have to take a step back and embrace it. This is the fanboy community we live in, after all. If something isn't on par with fans' imagination, then it sucks. If anyone disagrees, then he or she is an apologist.
I'm so not looking forward to the Relaunch. I can already see the reactions to the new film.
"This IS Batman! Nolan was nothing but a hack who didn't know what he was doing!''
The fact that people are saying the Arkham games portray a better Batman, it wouldn't surprise me. The Arkham games are fun but the stories are absurd, the characters are overdone (including Batman who is annoyingly perfect), and it is shackled by ideas presented in the Animated series. Nolan's films are great because he is willing to make sense of the absurd and give us something original. For example, Bane has never been portrayed as well as he has in TDKR.
