Re: BATMAN REBOOT: your personal preferences?
I have to say, I do think dark Batman is overall more popular than light Batman and going in a lighter direction would actually be the riskier move. Even though light Batman definitely has its proponents out there. I just feel like with Batman, no matter how dark you make it the audience seems willing to 'go there', whereas if you camp it up there's a line that can be crossed where it's too much and everyone hates it.
I think darkness is Batman's ally. He was created in it...molded by it
