Re: How to avoid rehashing elements from the Nolan Trilogy
-Use Americans for the cast. Nolan chose a Euro-centric cast (and also converted the League of Shadows to it,) so tap into the pool of American talent.
Does this really matter? When the European slant of the actors will be hidden beneath the American identity of the characters they are playing anyways?
Alan Moore on comics:
They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
