Default Re: Nolan wasnt any more "faithful" then Tim Burton

There was so much "reimagining" going on in the name of realism that some characters were barely recognizable if not for their names. How is Ra's Al Ghul, who is not portrayed as an extreme environmentalist or immortal any more accurate than Devito's Penguin? There's just something about people's sudden open-mindedness after the years of merciless bashing against the Burton movies that really pisses me off.

word of warning, be prepared now to have to defend the original *best* supermans cuz the hypocrisy will be overwhelming.
