Re: The Storyline Thread
I would love to see an adaptation of The Long Halloween. The only things I would change are the characterizations of Riddler, Scarecrow, and Mad Hatter since Jeph Loeb has a horrible take on each.
As for Year One, we already got an animated movie that was very faithful to it so I don't know if I would want to see it again. Plus, I don't think people will respond too well to a Batman movie with no supervillains whatsoever and just mobsters (Catwoman doesn't count).
If they do ever adapt Year One into live-action, I want Selina Kyle altered. The prostitute thing is the only problem the book has IMO. It was such a bad idea that every other writer either ignores it completely or says that she was just pretending to be a prostitute.
