Re: Batman Begins Best Origin Movie ever ?
I honestly just deeply love both approaches. Nolan's writing is more sophisticated, but there's nothing wrong with either approach to portraying the character.
I feel there were moments in Nolan's films that did scream Batman, personally. Lots of them.
The major difference seemed to be "What is Bruce Wayne when he's not Batman?"
The lonely, empty, swimming in intense thoughts, waiting for the signal to come alive version works just as beautifully as the public facade coupled with the 'maskless' Bruce who is really just Batman at home/with friends.
I feel like the next film should try to combine them somehow.
Why do we fall?
