I love Nolan's series, i hold it in high regards. However, i feel Nolan went a bit too realistic in some aspects, when it comes to the three films. Because his series was rooted in such a realistic surrounding, we didn't get to have fantastic villains like Riddler. I still feel The Riddler could have been portrayed as a psychotic, destruction hungry man, who with each clue, would have a public bombing if his riddle wasn't solved.
I'm going off a bit topic, but i'm hoping the next reboot of Batman has a few more fantastical elements thrown in. The reboot will have to if it wants to be part of a Justice League Universe.
Just had to get that out of my head.
Agreed. If MOS doesn't turn out being the best CBM, it will at least be the perfect CBM to date meaning that it has the perfect balance in its tone between realism and fantasy. It looks like they created a world where literally anything can happen and exist, which is even more fitting if MOS really is the start of a shared universe.
The way I see it, Nolan has perfected storytelling in CBM's not only by creating ones that the general audience can fully take seriously but also by finding the perfect balance between movies that stand on their own and that still have continuity & things set up for future sequels in there at the same time, with the only thing missing is that element of fantasy. MOS seems to be following doing the exact same thing only adding that fantasy element in creating a world where anything can happen, creating the perfect CBM.
Also, are you sure the Riddler is the best example of that though? Because Riddler would've fit in perfectly. He's not any more out there than the Joker was. I think you meant someone like Clayface, Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, etc.
