Default Re: How to avoid rehashing elements from the Nolan Trilogy

That's where I've always felt Michael Keaton's Batman was a success. He was obviously intense as ****, borderline psychotic in scenes like "You wanna get nuts!?", but he still came across as highly intelligent, sympathetic and, of course, heroic. To me, that's Batman- a deeply scarred individual who is constantly pushing himself and others to peak perfection as a way to "compensate" for the encroaching insanity, To keep himself from stepping across that line and becoming too much like the criminals he fights.
Bale did a fine job, the character was just written too much as a martyr for my tastes, I dunno.
