Have a very dark a dingy desaturated Gotham, with bright, eccentric villains to contrast it.

VERY dystopic, a broken vision of the future; zeppelins would probably be a little out of place, although giant TV-screen billboards touting new romantic adventures in spots like Corto Maltese might be a little more fitting.
some great shouts here. i'm pretty much 99% agreed with these.

keep gotham very dystopic, overcast in the day, pollution, smoke, villians in hockey masks prowling around the streets, raining for the most part. some great ideas there. i'd definitely have zeppelins in it. i'd maybe have police sirens/generic noises constantly in the background as well just to really add to the tone of a dark, dingy crime-filled gotham.

would love the film to be noir-ish. not to the extent sin city is but not too far short of it either i'd say.
