Oh yeah I have the Bluray and I love watching that documentary, just the excitement of them talking about what it took to bring Batman to the big screen, now that's what a retrospective should be about.
I just wish they had delved more into the initial backlash from fans over Keaton's casting, especially the often nasty letters fans would write to comic insider magazines and a brand new Keaton interview instead of the archived footage.
A few of the Marvel Superheroes are somewhat niche characters that aren't extremely versatile, thus they don't have a lot of longevity potential. For example, Namor is a water guy, Silver Surfer is a space guy, Dr. Strange is a magic guy, and so on.
