Default Re: Your top 5 things that needs to be "fixed" for the Batman reboot

I will always be a fan of the comics first and foremost, but I do try not to judge things purely by their fidelity to them. I would say that Burton and Nolan's movies are equally departures from the source material. Burton's movies- particularly the first- just captures more of its atmosphere and appeal.

I feel that we have moved beyond a point where, to gain some sort of validation, a comic book movie needed to have a director that didn't really feel comfortable with comic book movies, and tried to turn the films into something different in order to mask their origin.
